Macoda Mattress Review
The Macoda Mattress is beautifully comfortable and was once again awarded Australia’s ‘Best Comfort’ Mattress in a Box in 2021. It is a great option for those looking for a softer feel mattress, at an affordable price.
Purchase and delivery
Like other mattress in a box products, the Macoda Mattress can be simply ordered online, and it will arrive at your door in a compact box. Delivery is free and shipping times are fast (see delivery times in ‘Delivery’ section below).
It was relatively easy to remove from its packaging, and as usual, we recommend having two people available to unpack a mattress in a box. With this in mind, it is still possible to unpack this mattress with one person.
Unpacking the Macoda 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 mattress presents with a rather ‘funky’ appearance, using a characteristic white and royal blue colour combination. Its brand name embroidery also gives it a nice touch of class.
The cover of this mattress consists of a bamboo fabric and ‘quilting foam’. It has a network of diagonal lines (that form small ridges over the top surface), and feels smooth and luxurious. It is possibly our favourite ‘top cover’ in the bed in a box market.
You could say that Macoda has nailed the term ‘affordable luxury’.
This top cover sits over comfort layers of premium latex, gel-infused memory foam, and a high density support foam. This comfort layer is incredibly comfortable, and absorbs body weight smoothly.
It is worth noting here that the Macoda Mattress is ‘customisable’, meaning that you can you can adjust the firmness of the mattress by flipping its top foam layers.
Comfort and support
The ‘default’ configuration that the mattress arrives in (latex on top) feels soft, is the version that we liked the most. If you are feeling a bit adventurous, the configuration with memory foam on top feels a little more ‘spongy’, and the support foam on top feels a little more ‘dense’.
Although each configuration feels slightly different, we didn’t detect much difference in ‘firmness’. The mattress should suit side sleepers very well, but it should also accommodate most back sleepers and stomach sleepers. Understandably though, its suitability will vary between individuals.
Our team rated all 3 configurations as a ‘soft-medium’ feel and a 4.5 / 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. Furthermore, our firmness ratings are assigned based on Bedbuyer’s testing process and these may differ from firmness ratings given by individual companies.
The main support structure of the Macoda Mattress is a 5 zone pocket spring system. This provides good spinal support and should accommodate people of most sizes.
The Macoda Mattress responds nicely 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 any 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 overall build quality of the Macoda Mattress is admirable. Switching the foam layers is straight forward, and this is made easier with a strong zip mechanism. Each comfort layer also has a protective covering of fabric, demonstrating Macoda’s attention to detail.
The sides of the mattress also have convenient handles which feel strong and durable. This makes carrying the mattress (when rotating or during transport), much easier.
It is also worth noting that the Macoda Mattress is well certified as non-toxic and comes with a solid 100 night trial period and a 10 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.
It’s worth noting here that mattress firmness, performance, and durability will vary with different bed bases.
This mattress is available in 5 sizes (king, queen, double, king single, and single size) so it should accommodate most bedroom arrangements. Here are Australia’s standard bed (mattress) sizes in 2021.
The Macoda Mattress is a lovely mattress and a great buy for those who prefer a softer feel. It has a level of comfort that is unmatched in the mattress in a box market, and is a worthy award winner in 2021. You could say that Macoda has nailed the term ‘affordable luxury’.

The layer of cloud like memory foam is infused with thousands of cooling gel beads, which are activated by your body temperature to make sure you stop sleeping hot.
Our hybrid mattress combines foam and pocket springs to provide a level of comfort miles above a traditional spring mattress and support that pure foam mattresses just aren’t capable of.
We’re bringing the bounce back to the bedroom. With a supportive layer of latex, you’ll get just the right amount of responsiveness and cushioning from your bed, without the sinking feeling.
Soft, silky & luxurious bamboo
Bamboo wicks moisture, to ensure you and your mattress stay feeling fresh. It’s also highly breathable, super soft and one of the most eco-friendly fabrics on the planet.
Targeted pressure relief
By conforming to your body, the Macoda alleviates pressure where it’s needed most, and works to align the spine. A perfect mattress for side sleepers, back sleepers and everything in between.
No partner disturbance
Say goodbye. A foundation of hundreds of independent pocket springs means motion doesn’t transfer across the mattress. Less tossing and turning, more deep sleeping.
The Macoda mattress has 5 unique zones that target different areas of your body. More support for where you need it, more comfort where you dont. A firm edge support keeps you where you should be night after night.
Our natural latex layer is something you can feel good on, and feel good about. Latex is hypoallergenic, resistant to bedroom nasties like dust mites and mould. Breathable and fresh, you can sleep healthy and happy.
High quality polyurethane foam provides support and durability you can rely on. By preventing sagging of the mattress, this layer will ensure great sleep for years.
Macoda Pocket Springs
Weight distribution of the human body isn’t a simple thing, so your mattresses shouldn’t be either. With five different zones of support, areas of the body that need more get exactly that, which in turn helps to ensure spinal alignment for a therapeutic sleep. Macoda’s 5-Zone system means you’re always getting the support you need where you need it.
The Macoda Mattress is perfect straight out of the box with a supportive yet soft-medium feel. However, we understand not everyone sleeps the same, so we put the power in your hands. With adjustable firmness, all you need to do is unzip and flip to get your perfect sleep.
The Macoda Mattress has a completely unique design, allowing you to change the comfort setting of your bed in the comfort of your own home. The white top of the mattress can be unzipped and removed, revealing two foam inserts. By flipping these inserts, your mattress can adjust between a soft, medium and firm comfort setting in a couple of minutes.
A foundation of hundreds of independent pocket springs provide superior quality and a level of support and comfort beyond that of full foam mattresses. With extra firm edges, there’ll be no more dreaded side sag or worrying about rolling off your bed in the middle of the night.
