The Emma mattress is manufactured in Germany; however, it has expanded to the UK and USA currently, where it is manufactured in Derby and directly transported from the company to the consumers’ location. The creators of Emma have conducted comprehensive scientific research and sleep tests to exactly determine the factors that comprise a high-quality mattress. They are created to letting customers experience rejuvenating and restful sleep every night. After the research and testing, they finally came up with a hybrid mattress that is composed of 4 layers. The four layers comprise the hypersoft foam, conical pocket springs, Visco elastic memory foam, and cold foam. The combination of these layers makes the mattress exceptionally supportive and comfortable. In addition, the mattress’ layers are enclosed with a cover that is made up of specialized climate fiber that controls humidity and heat. The cover maintains the breathability of the mattress and minimizes or maximizes heat retention depending upon the climate. The capability of this mattress to adjust to the temperature of the surroundings makes sleepers comfortable.
All the materials used in producing the Emma mattress are manufactured in high-end companies in Europe. Customers can order the mattress online. Once the mattress is ordered, it is rolled well and vacuum packed and sealed in a durable box for easy transport to the customers’ area. Through this purchasing process, customers won’t have to deal with the pressure brought about by various sales tactics. Moreover, this process also minimizes the overall price of the mattress. Certainly, this process is convenient for a lot of customers. However, the downside is you can’t check the mattress tangibly before you purchase it.
In order to help you determine whether the Emma mattress is a good choice for you, we analyzed this mattress and formulated this buyer’s guide according to the information that we have gathered. In this post, we will provide you comprehensive information about the Emma mattress to help you identify if this product really suits your needs.
Emma Mattress Layers
The Emma mattress is made up of 4 distinct layers. These include hypersoft foam, conical pocket springs, Visco elastic memory foam, and cold foam. When all the layers are combined, the mattress will have a total thickness of 9.5 inches.
The First Layer
The top layer of the Emma mattress comprises the hypersoft foam. This foam features an open-cell technology, which is beneficial in controlling the temperature of the mattress. This technology allows air to circulate freely throughout the mattress, thereby reducing heat retention. The first layer not only maintains the coolness of the mattress, but it also makes the mattress soft, thus enhancing its comfort level.
The Second Layer
The second layer of the Emma mattress is made up of conical pocket springs. These pocket springs work by supporting the mattress and preventing or relieving pressure points. These springs are designed to distribute evenly weight all over the mattress. These also improve the bounce of the mattress. The high bounce-back rate allows users to easily get in and out of the bed and enhances their intimacy level. These benefits are seldom provided by all-foam mattresses.
The Third Layer
The third layer of the Emma mattress is composed of Visco elastic memory foam. This foam is beneficial in preventing pressure point buildup and relieving body pain. It conforms to the contour of the body, giving sleepers a comfortable hug. Since the Visco elastic foam is situated on this layer, which is away from the surface of the mattress, the heat retention is still minimal. The foam also acts as a transition layer between the upper two layers and the bottom layer.
The Bottom Layer
Lastly, at the bottom of the Emma mattress is the cold memory foam layer, which is made up of a polyurethane material. The layer serves as the strong base of support for the mattress, specifically supporting the upper 3 layers and maintaining its shape.
All layers of the Emma mattress are enclosed by a cover that is made up of a combination of elastane and polyester. The cover is durable and flexible. We have observed that it easily snaps back to its original shape when we pulled it. This means that this is durable; it has the capacity to maintain the mattress’ shape even when used for a long time. In addition, it is thin, so it is breathable; thereby, heat retention is reduced. Although it is thin, it’s still soft.
The cover is also washable and removable for easy care. If you want to clean and freshen up the mattress, you can just unzip it and place it into the washing machine. The top portion of the cover is white and its sides are gray. It is embellished by a navy blue thin piping that separates the sides and top part, making its color pop. As a whole, the mattress has a neat and contemporary look.
In this part of the customers’ guide, we provide comprehensive details about the features and specifications of the mattress. Since you can’t check the mattress tangibly before you buy it, we believe that this section of the guide is essential. This will help you determine if this mattress really suits your needs.
The firmness of the mattress is measured on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the firmest and 1 being the softest. As for the Emma mattress, we gave it a rating of 5.5 to 6. When we lie down on the mattress, we first felt that it’s a bit firm, but after a few hours, we can feel the hypersoft foam that adjusts to the body’s contour. We have also felt the conical pocket springs that work by providing exceptional support.
The Emma mattress provides comfort for all types of sleepers, most especially the stomach sleepers. Although there are some indentations, it’s not that deep. It just provides sleepers with a comfortable hug without making them feel as if they were trapped in the mattress. We are also amazed by the exceptional level of edge support of the mattress. When we lie down near the edge, we have not observed significant indentations; this feature makes this product stand out from the rest of the mattresses.
Motion transfer is another factor that affects the overall comfort that the mattress can provide, and motion transfer issues are usually encountered by customers who bought spring mattresses. Although the Emma mattress has a spring coil layer that increases its bounce-back rate, the foam layers balance the motion transfer by absorbing the motion.
Pain Relief and Support
The Emma mattress has a great performance when it comes to support and pain relief. The hypersoft foam gives sleepers a comfortable hug, relieving pressure points and preventing pain. The conical pocket springs enhance the responsiveness of the mattress. It evenly distributes weight and pressure throughout the mattress. We have observed that the mattress provide enough support when it is needed. Moreover, the mattress also promotes proper spine alignment, which enhances the level of support and relieves pain.
Although the Emma mattress is specially created to minimize heat retention, we would like to emphasize that it doesn’t do its job well when it comes to reducing heat retention. There are certainly other mattresses that we have tested that can do a better job. Although the Emma mattress performs better than the traditional foam mattresses, we think that this does not meet the needs of hot sleepers. If you need a cool mattress, the Emma mattress may not be suitable for you.
When a mattress emits an undesirable odor, this is referred to as off-gassing. This is a common issue that is encountered by customers who purchase all-foam mattresses. The chemicals that are used during the production process of the foam have undesirable odor. When the mattress is new, it usually emits an unpleasant odor.
We were amazed by the Emma mattress because of its minimal off-gassing. Right after unpacking the mattress, we did not notice any undesirable odor. Upon lying down, we have noticed a slight odor, but it just dissipates after a few hours. We just leave the mattress in a well-ventilated area.
Usually, foam mattresses are not that good when it comes to intimacy. This is because foam has the tendency to absorb motion, thus reducing the bounce-back rate of the mattress. However, the Emma mattress is different. Since this contains conical spring coils, its bounce is enough when engaging in intimate activities. In addition, this feature also allows users to easily get in and out of the bed during the night.
Sleeping Position Scores
Whether you are a stomach, side, or back sleeper, you always need a comfortable and supportive mattress to have restful and rejuvenating sleep. There are several mattresses that do not provide enough support and comfort sleepers. This means that there are mattresses that do not work well in different sleeping positions. In this guide, we assess the performance of the Emma mattress in various sleeping positions. Please find below our findings:
The Back Sleepers
Several back sleepers will certainly love the Emma mattress. It evenly distributes weight throughout the mattress, thus relieving pain, preventing pressure buildup, and enhancing comfort. In addition, the indentation of the Emma mattress is only limited up to 1.5 inches when you’re sleeping on your back. Therefore, it just gives sleepers a comfortable hug without making them feel that they are stuck in the mattress.
The Stomach Sleepers
When you’re sleeping on your stomach, the Emma mattress usually will have an indentation of around 1.5 inches. Thus, this will also make you comfortable without making you feel that you’re trapped in the mattress. The compression is more in the stomach and hip areas, thereby giving you a comforting hug. The spring coils also promote proper spine alignment, which can prevent back pain.
The Side Sleepers
Side sleepers will likely to experience noticeable compression when sleeping on the Emma mattress, that is, 2 inches. The major area that is compressed is around the waist. This commonly happens because more pressure is applied around the waist area when sleeping on the side. However, the mattress provides support and comfortable hug for side sleepers, which in turn prevents pressure point buildup and relieves pain.
Bed Frame Compatibility
The Emma mattress is created to be suitable for any kind of bed foundation, as long as it has the same size with the frame. If you choose to use a slatted bed frame, we recommend using those frames that have narrow spaces between slats. It is also best to use slats that are composed of durable materials like metal or hardwood to prevent bending.
