Ecosa Mattress Review
Australia based company, Ecosa, sprang onto the mattress and bedding scene in 2015. Claiming to be a “one-for-all” mattress we had to put it to the test. Featuring a 3-in-1 design, could Ecosa be a suitable choice for all sleeper types? Find out as we dig into the details in our comprehensive Ecosa mattress review!
- 3-in-1 Design
- Budget friendly option
- Machine washable and waterproof inner cover
- Little to no motion transfer meaning it could be a good choice for couples
- May be too firm for strict side sleepers or petite individuals
- Lacks the bounce and spring found in traditional innerspring/hybrid mattresses
Ecosa Mattress Construction
Standing at a total height of 10″ the mattress ships already set up for a medium configuration. The top layer is 1.5″ of gel-infused G-7 memory foam. Memory foam is known for its gentle contouring while the gel particles help to regulate temperature, keeping you cooler throughout the night. This layer is easily identified by its blue color. Beneath the G-7 memory foam is 1.5″ of ECO-Tex memory foam and lastly 7″ of high density poly foam.
Medium Firm Arrangement
In this configuration the top 2 layers are flipped, the ECO-Tex memory foam is now on top followed by the G-7 memory foam while the base layer remains the same.
The ECO-tex memory foam is an open cell memory foam designed to have a quicker response rate and provide a slightly bouncier feel than traditional memory foam. It also improves the overall breathability of the mattress. You’ll identify this layer by its white color.
Firmness and Feel
To be honest I wasn’t sure I was going to like Ecosa. My first impressions were that the mattress was quite firm, even sleeping on the softest arrangement. I’m a combo sleeper, spending most of my time on my side or stomach, but I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t find the pressure relief I needed for side sleeping. However, Mike and I have slept surprisingly well!
That being said, petite side sleepers may find Ecosa to be too firm, even in its softest arrangement. If you are a petite side sleeper or prefer a softer mattress, we suggest checking out our top picks for side sleepers.
Lastly, we found the firm configuration to rate about an 8.5 on the firmness scale. This arrangement has a neutral foam feel and is best suited for stomach sleepers.
The best thing about this mattress is it’s adjustable nature. If you find that one configuration is too soft or too firm, you can re-arrange the layers to find a more suitable firmness level.
Does Ecosa sleep hot?
Is Ecosa right for Couples?
Motion Isolation- Motion isolation and edge support are important factors when sharing your bed with a partner, especially if your partner is prone to tossing and turning. Like most foam mattresses, Ecosa performed exceptionally well in this category, we experienced little to no motion transfer.
Edge Support- If you sleep with a partner in a Full or Queen size bed, then edge support might be important for you! The better the edge support in a mattress, the larger the overall surface feel of the mattress. Beds with poor edge support will leave you feeling like you’re in danger of falling out of bed as you move towards the outer edges.
In general, memory foam/all foam mattresses don’t perform spectacularly in this category. While we still experienced some compression when lying next to the edge, Ecosa performed better than expected. If edge support is a major factor when shopping for a new bed we suggest upgrading to a King mattress or checking out our top picks for a hybrid mattress, which are generally known for having better edge support.
How Much Does Ecosa Cost?
Ecosa is one of the least expensive mattresses we’ve tested so far. A Queen mattress starts at $730, check for current discounts. Interest free financing is available through Klarna (upon approval).
Keep in mind that with any new mattress you will need to accommodate for an adjustment period. In most cases it is recommended to try out any new mattress for at least 30 nights before initiating a refund.
A Company With a Cause
Is the Ecosa Mattress Right for you?
Pros- Ecosa could be a great fit if you are looking for an all foam mattress with adjustability. Not only does the mattress design allow you to choose your firmness level as you see fit, it’s a great option for anyone shopping on a budget. Likely to please a wide range of sleepers, we found it best suited to back, stomach and combo sleepers.
Also, if you have children or pets you’re likely to really appreciate that this mattress is waterproof and features a removable outer cover for machine washing.
Cons- While the 3-in-1 design could be a good fit for most sleep positions, it may still be too firm for strict side sleepers or petite individuals.
Ecosa is a combination foam mattress, if you prefer the more traditional feel of an innerspring mattress, Ecosa may not be for you. We recommend checking out our top picks for best hybrid mattresses.
Lastly, if you sleep with a partner and prefer different mattress firmnesses, you may benefit from dual adjustability. Unfortunately, Ecosa’s 3-in-1 design won’t allow for independent adjustments on either side of the bed. In this case we recommend an adjustable air bed, though they are more expensive, adjustable air beds offer the ultimate in customization.
