Full Eve Mattress Review

Produced in the United Kingdom by a team of mattress-industry veterans, the Eve mattress has become one of the most popular in the United States and in many European countries.

In this Eve Mattress Review, we’ll see if it delivers on its promise of an uncompromising sleeping experience.

What Type of Mattress is it?

The Eve mattress employs an all-foam, three-layer design that incorporates a proprietary blend at the very top. Eve is the second outing for a team that previously built the UK’s most popular online mattress brand, and both mattresses and covers are produced in the heart of the England’s famed textile country.

With a single design stemming from feedback gleaned through selling tens of thousands of mattresses in the past, Eve aims to please the vast majority of sleepers at affordable price points.

Even at a first glance, Eve seems to check all the boxes that today’s shoppers expect.

Let’s look at the most popular questions we get from our readers:

How Firm is the Eve Mattress?

Eve mattress labelEve falls on the medium-firm side of the scale, a range that tends to accommodate most.

The founders of the company emphasize that selling more than 75,000 mattresses with their previous venture helped them identify this sweet spot.

They launched Eve also to simplify the mattress selection process as it’s usually way too complex and the results are anyway far from certain.

By offering one level of firmness only, they are confident that more people will simply be happier. And otherwise, there is a solid 100-day satisfaction guarantee (see the details below).

Does the Eve Mattress Offer Good Motion Isolation?

Fairly dense foam throughout allows Eve to dampen motion nicely, so a restless sleeper will be less likely to disturb a partner.

That also entails a less-lively feel, compared to some innerspring or latex mattresses, that a few could find unappealing, although Eve’s special upper layer helps mitigate this.

Will It Get Hot while Sleeping?

As with other high-end memory foam mattresses, Eve reflects some serious thinking about how to dissipate heat to keep sleepers cool.

The proprietary upper foam layer shoulders much of this duty, but the middle layer lends a hand, too, with 30% improved airflow compared to conventional foam.

Most will find Eve a pleasantly cool mattress to sleep on.

How Long Will It Last?

Eve can be expected to provide support and comfort for a decade or more, as its high-quality materials will hold up well under normal usage.

As usual, heavier and larger owners will inflict more wear, but even they can expect many years of comfortable sleep and support.

Is There a “New Mattress” Smell?

CertiPUR-US logoA bit of a smell can be experienced when Eve is first removed from its packaging, but it will dissipate quickly. It has to do with the mattress being enclosed under vacuum for a few days and is definitely not toxic.

The mattress has been certified by CertiPUR-US, which confirms that no nasty chemicals have been used in the manufacturing process.

How is the Eve Mattress Structured?

Eve uses a fairly conservative and time-tested, three-layer foam design:

  1. eve mattress layers explainedComfort-Enhancing “New Generation” Upper Layer: The top layer of the mattress is the softest and most conforming of all. A proprietary “New Generation” memory foam blend helps keep heat from building up and also contributes some of the bounce that fans of latex and coil-spring mattresses sometimes miss.
  2. Transitional Memory Foam Middle Layer: The middle layer softens things up quite a bit, while also providing some of the cradling comfort memory foam is known for, in addition to 30% greater airflow than the norm.
  3. High Density Base Layer: finally, the bottom layer provides much of its support, with the relatively stiff foam compressing just a bit under forces transmitted from above.

Those layers are encased in a premium stretch-fabric cover knitted by hand in the UK.

Although the Eve clocks in at a relatively slim 10 inches in height, it offers satisfying support and comfort comparable to other mattresses of its type featuring greater heights.

What Are the Available Sizes?

Eve is available in all the usual American-market sizes:

  • Twin (39″ x 75″)
  • Twin XL (39″ x 80″)
  • Full (54″ x 75″)
  • Queen (60″ x 80″)
  • King (76″ x 80″)
  • Cali King (72″ x 84″)

As mentioned above, the height for all models is 10 inches.

How is it Delivered? How Long Will it Take?

the eve mattress is delivered in a boxThe Eve Mattress is delivered for free in a convenient box that will let you place the mattress wherever you prefer without worrying about tight passageway and narrow doors.

This also allows for lower packing costs and less waste of materials, contributing to the low price tag.

As the box weighs about 90 lbs. and it will be delivered to your door only, just make sure you get some help in order not to injure your back!

The delivery time for mainland USA is 7 working days. Did we say it’s free?

Is it Easy to Unpack and Install?

It is as easy as opening a box and cutting carefully the plastic wrapping with scissors, as the short video below demonstrates. Again, just be careful not to damage anything.

Once unpacked, the mattress will just take about an hour to be fully decompressed from its vacuum wrapping.

Does It Require a Special Foundation?

No. The firmness of the bottom layer allows Eve to match up well with everything from box springs to platforms of all kinds or even a bare floor.

Can I Use a Mattress Pad?

Eve will easily accept just about any mattress pad or topper. However, be aware that adding a mattress pad might modify the final firmness, affecting the ideal comfort the mattress was designed to provide. No harm in trying though.

As you can read below, on the other hand a mattress protector is encouraged to keep the mattress clean and increase its durability.

How Do I Care for the Eve Mattress?

eve-mattress-fullThe makers of Eve recommend the cover be spot cleaned when necessary, with no attempt to remove it for washing. In fact, a dedicated mattress protector is also recommended because of this.

Ideally, Eve should be rotated lengthwise once per month for the first year to ensure that the initial compaction of the lower foam layers is even.

Is Satisfaction Guaranteed?

Eve comes with a 100-day trial period, with free pickup and full refund if it turns out to be unsatisfactory.

There’s even an option to try Eve for 30 days without paying anything at all by signing up for a special offer at checkout on their official website.

What About the Warranty?

The Eve Mattress is backed by a 10-year warranty against defects, with full replacement if any problems appear, instead of the prorated coverage that some competitors offer.

Amazingly enough, when we challenged them on the warranty terms, they were very candid and told us that they don’t expect the mattress to deteriorate at all, except the usual wear and tear of course.

This means that this warranty has no limitations. It’s the first time we come across such confidence in a mattress’ long-term quality by its manufacturer.

How Much Does the Eve Mattress Cost?

Lady reviewing the eve mattressShipping included, Eve ranges in price from $399 for the Twin size to $849 for both regular and California King models, with the benchmark Queen coming in at $749 (saving $100 with our coupon 100EVEXMAS)

That puts it right in line with a fair amount of competition that similarly aims at delivering a 2000-dollar night’s sleep for a lot less.

Our Verdict

Even in a crowded field, the Eve Mattress stands out as an appealing option. The high-quality stretch-fabric cover, breathable middle section, and a top layer that provides a nice taste of coil-spring responsiveness will impress many.

As this Eve Mattress Review should make clear, those who seek especially firm or soft mattresses will need to look elsewhere, but other shoppers focusing on this price range should find excellent value and sleep-enhancing comfort.
