Eva Mattress Review
The Eva Mattress has only been available for several years, but it has skyrocketed to become one of the most popular online mattresses in Australia. It is a great ‘all-rounder’ that offers excellent value.
Purchase and delivery
As with other mattress in a box products, the Eva Mattress can be ordered online (through the Eva website) and it will arrive at your door in a compact box. Eva offers free and fast delivery, Australia-wide (except to the Northern Territory). Delivery times can be seen below our ‘Delivery’ section.
The box is relatively heavy, due to Eva’s robust pocket spring system. Care is required when moving and unpacking the box as it can ‘pop out’ quickly from its packaging. Having said that, removing the mattress from its box and packaging is straight forward. As usual, we recommend having two people on hand to unpack a mattress in a box.
Unpacking the Eva Mattress should only take 5-10 minutes, and we allowed it to decompress for 24 hours before testing. You can see this mattress in ‘real life’ in our video review here:
The Eva Mattress presents will well with a clean, modern design. It uses a grey and white colour theme, and a blue brand name label.
Comfort and support
The top comfort layer of the Eva Mattress layer consists of a breathable polyester cover that feels breathable and durable. This is followed by layers of memory foam (20 mm), latex (20 mm), and a high density foam (70 mm).
The combination of these layers give a ‘foamy’ yet comfortable sleeping surface, and it should offer enough pressure relief for most people. To this point, the mattress should suit all sleeping positions (side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers) but understandably, its suitability will vary between individuals.
A great all-rounder that offers excellent value.
Eva recently made some small changes to the design of its mattress (in 2020), namely the removal of the layer of ‘micro springs’ in its top comfort layer. This seemed to soften the mattress a little, and as a result, we have made a slight change to its firmness rating.
We would classify the current version of the Eva Mattress as a ‘medium-firm’ feel and a 7 / 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. Furthermore, our firmness ratings are assigned based on Bedbuyer’s testing process and these may differ from firmness ratings given by individual companies.
This comfort layer sits over a 5 zone pocket spring system that feels solid and robust. It has an impressive 400kg weight limit (Queen size) so it should accommodate people of all sizes. The mattress offers outstanding overall spinal support, with no obvious dipping or sagging.
The Eva Mattress responds well to normal sleep movements and we rated its level of responsiveness in the ‘optimal’ zone. In basic terms, this means that changing sleep positions (and intimate activities) shouldn’t be too much trouble.
Please note that our responsiveness scales are just a guide and preferred responsiveness levels will vary between individuals. It’s worth noting also that innerspring mattresses are generally more responsive than foam mattresses.
The finer details
The Eva Mattress is nicely constructed, and build quality is very good. Edge support is sound and it has strong side handles which will make it much easier to carry and rotate. As we said earlier, the Eva Mattress is quite heavy (55kgs, Queen size), so you will likely need two people to help carry this mattress.
The Eva Mattress is well backed with a 120 night trial period, giving you plenty of time to try it in the comfort of your home. It also has an impressive 12 year warranty.
What bed base should I use?
A bed frame (with flexible slats) may still be adequate, but again, we strongly recommend that the distance between each slat is less than 8 cm. Use of an unsupportive mattress foundation will usually void the mattress warranty.
Furthermore, we do not recommend the Eva Mattress to be used with an adjustable (electric) bed base as this will also void the warranty. Here is our full list of mattresses that are compatible with an adjustable bed base.
It’s worth noting here that mattress firmness, performance, and durability will vary with different bed bases.
The Eva 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 2021.
Overall, the Eva Mattress is a great buy. It has a nice balance of comfort and support, and offers very good value. It is also well certified as non-toxic, so you can feel confident that it is safe it bring into your home.

Infused with millions of gel beads to maintain perfect temperature through the night, this material adapts to your body to redistribute heat and offer pressure relief.
Eva’s latex is naturally dust-mite resistant and antimicrobial. The open cell and pinhole structure allows it to flex and breathe.
Density foam lends the mattress its perfect degree of firmness for ultimate comfort and support.
5 Zone Pocket Springs
Pocket springs minimise partner disturbance so your slumber (or your co-sleepers) isn’t affected by tossing and turning.
Strong Edge Support
Supported by robust springs along its side pockets, an Eva mattress makes it near-impossible to fall out of bed or sink down when banished to the mattresses edge by your partner, cat or sleeping habits.
Unparalleled support Our unique combination of micro and pocket springs provide support where it matters. Our 5 zone pocket springs provide optimal support from head to toe ensuring the body is properly aligned, no matter the sleeping position. Keeping you cool The open structure allows air to circulate freely thus providing a cooler sleep. In contrast, a full block of foam acts as a barrier to ventilation and traps heat in it. This makes the mattress hot, especially during the Australian summer! Firmness Level Based on our research, most people prefer a mattress that is firm but not too hard. Eva mattress is a medium firm mattress which puts it in the region of a 7-8 out of 10 with 1 being very soft and 10 being very hard. This is the ideal firmness for a supportive sleep.
