Yinahla Copper Gel Review
The Yinahla Copper Gel is the softest option in the award-winning Yinahla mattress range. It has an exceptional level of comfort and the highest levels of quality and craftsmanship.
Purchase and delivery
This mattress can be ordered online, through the Yinahla website. Delivery is free, and the mattress can be delivered Australia-wide (see full delivery details in our ‘Delivery’ section further down).
The mattress arrived in pristine condition, thanks to some protective plastic wrapping. Unlike most mattresses available online, the Yinahla Copper Gel doesn’t come compressed in a box. This means that you won’t have to wait for it to decompress, before sleeping on it.
You can see this mattress in ‘real life’ (along with the rest of the Yinahla range) in our video review here:
The Yinahla Copper Gel presents nicely with an elegant, classic style. It sits 39cm high and uses a white and beige colour theme. Its special embroidery and Australian made label also give it a nice touch of class.
Comfort and support
The top comfort layer of this mattress is made of Yinahla’s signature ‘elastin knitted fabric’. This cover feels soft, smooth, and is well ventilated.
This cover sits over a combination of premium foam layers that includes a 50mm layer of Copper Gel Foam, and a 50mm layer of Dunlop Foam. Copper Gel foam is a new technology in bedding and is designed to improve comfort and temperature regulation.
This top comfort layer provides soft and smooth pressure relief, and should offer enough comfort for even the most fussiest mattress connoisseurs. It absorbs body weight evenly, and we did not detect any undesirable sinking.
The mattress should suit most side sleepers, but it may also suit some back sleepers and stomach sleepers. Understandably though, this suitability will vary between individuals.
We rated the Yinahla Copper Gel as a ‘medium’ feel and a 5 / 10 on the firmness scale. 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 spring system used in the Yinahla Copper Gel is market-leading and will accomodate people of all sizes. It uses a 9 zone ‘ultra coil’ pocket spring system that provides outstanding spinal support.
It’s worth noting that this spring system has an exceptionally high spring count (1,967 springs in a queen size mattress). This helps to isolate movement very well, so partner disturbance is minimal.
The Yinahla Copper Gel 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
In terms of build quality and craftsmanship, this mattress is exceptional. It has strong side handles to make rotating (and transporting) the mattress easier, and its ‘full edge box’ construction ensures that edge support is firm.
Copper Gel foam is a new technology in bedding and is designed to improve comfort and temperature regulation.
It’s worth noting here that all of the foams used in the Yinahla Copper Gel are certified as eco-friendly and non-toxic by GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia). With this in mind, you can feel safe bringing this product into your home.
The Yinahla Copper Gel has an incredible 20-year warranty, a strong indication as to its quality and durability. And of course its 100 night trial period allows you to return the mattress for a full refund in the unlikely chance you are not satisfied.
What bed base should I use?
As with most mattresses, we recommend the Yinahla Copper Gel to be used with a sturdy bed frame with solid slats (such as the Chiropedic Bed Base). We also recommend that these slats are no longer than 8 cm apart.
A bed frame with ‘flexible’ (posture) slats will not provide adequate support for this mattress. Please note that any unsupportive mattress foundation will void the warranty for this mattress.
Furthermore, we do not recommend the Yinahla Copper Gel 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 Yinahla Copper Gel is available in 6 sizes (super king, king, queen, double, king single, and single) so it should suit almost all sleeping situations.
Here are Australia’s standard bed (mattress) sizes in 2022.
The Yinahla Copper Gel is a first class mattress. It uses the premium comfort materials and a spring system of the highest quality. It is Australian made, competitively priced, and a worthy award-winner in 2022.

Specifications – Yinahla Copper Gel
Height of the mattress: 39cm
The Yinahla Copper Gel Mattress is a luxurious and soft feel mattress that provides a plush cloud-like yet supportive sleeping experience. Every component has been selected from our premium range, and the quality of this mattress makes it stand out.
Designed and manufactured in Melbourne, this is our newest mattress to be added to the Yinahla range. The Copper Gel Foam, now available for the first time as memory foam; it’s a combination of both gel particles and copper. The 50mm Copper Gel Foam is the hero for this plush comfort mattress.
The Visco Foam, a more porous foam, allows for better airflow, hence a popular choice in bedding. When gel particles are added, it gives that amazing support and pressure relief once someone sits or lies down on the foam layer and assists in providing a cooling sensation. Add to this the copper and the gel-infused foam becomes one of the most premium available products for the bedding industry.
Copper is one of the most conductive elements on earth, so it makes sense to combine the soft, comfy memory foam with thermal regulation to absorb excessive heat. Copper does this faster and more effectively than any other mineral or foam additive by putting this into this mattress. It means that with bodyweight, the copper and gel particles come into contact for a fast and effective way to wick away heat. This is generally the biggest concern with a soft mattress; the more the mattress hugs the body, the quicker the body heats up. This new technology of combining gel and copper means they work together to prevent this, and the airflow is at its maximum, and the heat is wicked away quickly. The Yinahla Copper Gel Mattress is a great choice for ‘hot’ sleepers looking for a soft feel mattress.
Adding to the premium functionality of copper is its natural antimicrobial properties. Foams can be a hotbed for bugs and bacteria. This is where copper really is a superior addition to memory foam. Copper has been used for centuries for its antimicrobial properties because it weakens and eliminates almost all bugs and bacteria. This means the copper will help keep the foam fresh and clean.
The Quilting (Top Panel) is the same as our other Yinahla Mattresses. Below the Quilting, we have a 50mm Dunlop Copper Gel followed by a 50mm 28-80 Dunlop Foam.
The Spring system is of course, our Yinahla Springs which is the 9 Zone Ultra Coil Pocket Springs; all encased by a foam box. It’s structurally been made to last and backed by its 20-year warranty. Want to try? We have a 100-night comfort guarantee; tempted yet?
