Emma Mattress Review
The Emma Mattress is a firmer feel mattress that contains a unique foam construction. It offers very good value and is becoming a popular option in the mattress in a box market.
The Emma Mattress holds a number of awards in Europe, and landed on the Australian market in 2020. It is worth noting that its construction is slightly different to the UK model. This review (including our video review below) is specific to the Emma (Original) Mattress which is available in Australia.
This review is based on testing of the new and current model that was released in January 2021.
Purchase and delivery
As with other mattress in a box options, the Emma Mattress can be conveniently ordered online through the Emma website, and it will arrive at your door in a box (see delivery times below). Delivery is free, and our box arrived in pristine condition, thanks to additional wrapping around the box.
The Emma Mattress was one the easiest mattress in a box products to remove from its packaging, and we allowed it 24 hours to decompress before we carried out our assessment. You can see this mattress in ‘real life’ in our video review here:
Aesthetically, the Emma Mattress has a modern, stylish look. It uses a grey and white colour theme with a dark blue coloured brand label. It also comes with a neat product booklet that includes useful information about the mattress.
Comfort and support
The Emma Mattress has a well ventilated cover that contains a soft, polyester fabric. This cover sits over a special eco-friendly foam that is breathable and prevents overheating. This foam layer also has a nice level of comfort and responsiveness. It absorbs body weight smoothly and feels well balanced.
Based on our testing, our team rated it as a ‘nice, firm feel’ and an 7.5 / 10 on the firmness scale (with 10 being the firmest). Please note that our firmness ratings are just a guide and they do not necessarily relate to comfort.
The main body of this mattress is Emma’s sophisticated 7 zone, ‘pressure relieving foam’. This offers excellent support and should accommodate people of most sizes. The Emma Mattress also contains a layer of ‘point elastic foam’ at the base of the mattress. This seems to add an extra level of stability, and partner disturbance is minimal.
The finer details
At 29 kgs (Queen size) the Emma Mattress is noticeably light. This makes it easy to carry and also easy to change the bed sheets, which can be quite difficult with heavier mattresses. As a comparison, other ‘full-foam’ mattresses like the Koala Mattress (34 kgs) and the Ergoflex Mattress (39 kgs) are significantly heavier. The Eva Mattress (which uses pocket springs) weighs 55 kgs.
The relative light weight of the Emma Mattress doesn’t compromise spinal support or general stability. This is one of the most impressive features of this mattress, as Emma seems to have created the ultimate light-weight, supportive mattress. Edge support is decent, and the mattress comes with practical side handles.
The Emma Mattress has a handy removable (and washable cover). It is easy to remove, and the top cover can be machine washed every 4 weeks (at 60°C). As you can imagine, this allows you to keep your mattress clean and hygienic and is a big selling point for this mattress.
The Emma Mattress has a solid 100 night trial period and a 10 year warranty. It is also worth mentioning that all foam layers in this mattress are certified as non-toxic by OEKO-TEX®, one of the worlds leading authorities in foam testing.
Please note that we do not recommend the Emma Mattress to be used with an adjustable (electric) bed base.
This mattress is available in 5 sizes (king, queen, double, king single, and single size) so it should accommodate most sleeping situations. Here are Australia’s standard bed (mattress) sizes in 2020.
The Emma Mattress is a nice mattress that offers great value. It provides good back support, and its light weight makes it easy to carry. In a short period of time, this mattress has become very popular in Australia.
