the zninus mattress in a nice roomIt is clinically proven to improve your sleep efficiency as well as your sleep time.

Made of highest quality foam, the mattress is CertiPUR-US certified for performance as well as durability.

In addition to this, it uses BioFoam, the latest development of memory foam that replaces some of the conventional petroleum with natural plant oil, in order to keep your bed fresh while sleeping.

How Firm is it?

Although there are a variety of Zinus mattress options to suit different feel and firmness preferences, but this mattress is the average firmness model.

It comes in at about a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 is the most firm).

If you are a stomach or side sleeper, you may want to pick one of the firmer or softer mattresses.

In addition to this, the mattress has a slow reaction time– this is usual for memory foam mattresses.

How many Layers does it have?

The mattress is made up of 3 different layers which are as follows:

  • The Zinus Pressure relief mattress' sectionTop Memory Foam Layer: This is a 3 inch layer that snugs your body, in order to keep you comfortable during sleep. It does a good job of creating a cloud-like type of hug, comfort, and sinkage. In addition to this, it helps to mitigate pressure through this sinkage.
  • Middle Pressure Relieving Layer: This is a 3 inch comfort foam layer that gives you firmer support and pressure relief, in order to make sure you wake up pain free. This poly foam layer acts as a transitional layer from the top layer to the foundation layer.
  • Base Support Foam Layer: This is a solid 6 inch high density layer that helps to mitigate your sleeping pains, and also provide comfort to your entire body. This poly foam acting as the foundation base for the bed serves to offer a level of deep compression support mostly for bulkier sleepers.

Does it Sleep Hot?

No, the Zinus memory foam 12 inch pressure relief mattress does not sleep hot.

Although there aren’t any temperature regulation features, but you won’t really feel hot on the mattress.

However, there are tiny holes present in the cover, on the side, and on the top, that allow air to escape instead of simply building up. And besides this, there isn’t anything else to say about its temperature regulation features.

How Comfortable & Supportive is the mattress?

In terms of Comfort, the Zinus pressure relief comfort mattress is quite good. It will help you fall asleep quite quicker than usual, and you will also wake up fresh and pain free.

In addition to this, you can sleep in any position during night, and still have pain relief.

Although it is a firm mattress, but you can enjoy a comfortable sleep experience without the mattress putting any pressure on your stomach or chest.

The also mattress offers good support. It will conform to your body well, and make you feel supported all throughout the night.

In addition to this, the base foam does a decent job by allowing you to sleep in any position, and not notice any change in the way it felt. Plus, it does not let you sink in, and you can practically jump on it and still feel its support under your feet.

Memory foam mattresses are not really well known for their great edge support, but this mattress is different.

You can sit on the edge of this mattress without sliding, and it will also make your morning stretch better as you will not be interrupted by any sagging edges.

How is Motion Isolation & Sinkage?

Since it is a firm mattress, the motion isolation is much better as compared to other memory foam mattresses.

The good thing about the Zinus that you won’t really feel any movement if your partner changes position during sleep. This is because the memory foam construction of the mattress soaks up majority of the energy as you move around on the mattress.

While you are sleeping, the mattress does a good job of dissipating motion between you and your sleep partner. This implies that if one of you rolls over or gets out of bed, the movement goes virtually unnoticed.

Also, if you are frequently changing positions, this mattress can be suitable for you. Since this is a ‘one bed fits all’ classification, you can enjoy a restful sleep, while changing positions, and remaining equally easy and comfortable.

Does it have any Smell?

CertiPUR-US logoAlthough the Zinus pressure relieving mattress is CertiPUR-US certified, but you may experience some initial smell, which is normal.

Since the mattress is rolled firmly inside of plastic, the fumes can soak into it, however, they do go away after a couple of hours.

Also, since the mattress uses BioFoam, this makes it less toxic, and helps to alleviate the chemical smell when you unpack the mattress.

All in all, the smell has been reported as “slight” and shouldn’t be of concern unless you are considerably sensitive.

Does it require a Foundation?

As long as the base can support the sleepers and the mattress, then it is ready for use.

So you can either use the ground, or just a box spring, and  in case you use a slatted platform bed, just make sure the spaces are not more than 5 inches apart.

What type of Cover does it have?

The cover of the mattress is durable, comfortable, and soft. In addition to this, the fabric is stretchy, and the foam is supportive.

The cover’s mesh portion is a nice addition, and wraps firmly around the side panel of the bed, and enhances the mattress’s appeal, thereby giving it a modern appearance.

What is the best way to Care for the mattress?

Since the cover of the mattress cannot be washed, so it is recommended to use a mattress protector. This will make sure that your mattress warranty is not voided in case of stains.


Since a durable mattress holds up well and lasts a longer time, so it is imperative to consider how well its zipper holds up, pulls in fabric and foam on the inside, and areas that may be more prone to damages and defects.

This mattress seems to be well crafted for the most part. Its zipper is properly tucked away inside of a small flap that helps to keep it secure.

The mattress may last anywhere between 5 to 10 years.
