See how the Rivet performed in our mattress tests to help you determine if this could be the mattress for you.

Score Breakdown

Setup Test

It took us exactly a minute and a half to unbox the Amazon Rivet mattress. This mattress was light and easy to maneuver. However, it did no decompress immediately. It took a couple hours to take its full shape. There was a lot of wrapping and the mattress had a pretty potent odor. 

So for our setup test, the Rivet gets a 7.75 out of 10.


Motion Transfer Test

Motion transfer is just a fancy way of saying how much movement you feel if your partner is moving around. You want this to be pretty minimal.

Part A – The Humans

The Mattress Advisor motion transfer test is a two-part test. We start by asking both sleep subjects to lie on the bed, blindfolded, and rate on a scale from one to ten how much movement they felt when their partner was moving around with 10 being no movement at all.

While our sleep subjects were testing motion transfer on the Rivet they couldn’t even tell when their partner got on and off the bed. So for the first part of our motion transfer test, they gave the Amazon Rivet a 9.

Part B – The Wine Test

Next, comes our wine test. This is a great visual indicator of how much motion is being transferred from one side of the bed to another.

We had one of our sleep subjects lie down and roll back a forth a few times. We then took a look at how much the wine inside of the glass moved.

That wine was only a little shakey, so we gave it an 8 out of 10.

So for a total motion transfer score, the Rivet gets an 8.5


Edge Support Test

When choosing a mattress, you may not think to consider how much support the edge provides. But if you find yourself sleeping on the edge of your bed or use the end to get ready in the morning, you should definitely consider the edge support.

The Mattress Advisor edge support test is a two-part test.

Part A – The Shoe Test

To start, we asked our sleep subjects to sit on the edge of the bed to tie their shoes. They rated this task on a scale from one to ten, with 10 being “extremely easy, with exceptional edge support.”

Support on the end of the Rivet wasn’t very good. Our sleep subjects felt like they could slide right off the end. They scored it a 6 for the first part of our edge support test.

Part B – The Side Test

Next, we had our sleep subjects lie on the edge of the bed in each sleeping position, side, stomach and back, to see if they could sleep comfortably in that section of the bed.

Because the sleepers felt like they were “sinking” into the mattress, they felt like they wouldn’t move from their position. However, the edge itself didn’t have much grip. They scored the Rivet an 8 out of 10 for this part of the test.

So the Rivet gets a total score of 7.5 out of 10 for edge support.


Pressure Relief Test

When shopping for a mattress, you’ll want to find something that puts minimal pressure on your hips, thighs and shoulders. This is especially important for athletes when it comes to joint pain. Let’s take a look at how well the Rivet mattress provides pressure relief.

We measure pressure relief by using a pressure mapping film that shows areas of high pressure. Here’s what you need to know: the cool spots are good and the warms spots are bad. The warmer the color, the more pressure is being placed on that area of the body.

When our sleep subjects were on the Amazon Rivet mattress, we saw only a minimal amount of pressure in their shoulders.

So for a total pressure relief score, the Rivet gets an 8.75 out of 10.


Spine Alignment Test

Did you know your sleeping posture is just as important as your posture when you are awake?  For every mattress we test, we take a look at how well it keeps your spine in a straight line.

We took a close up of both of our sleep subjects backs to see the alignment. You’ll want to see a straight line from the neck all the way to the tailbone.

While on the Amazon Rivet mattress we saw a dip in the lower back of each sleep subject. This indicates poor core support of the mattress model.

For spine alignment, the Rivet gets a 7.25 out of 10.


Responsiveness Test

When it comes to getting comfortable on your mattress, responsiveness becomes very important. Responsiveness is just a fancy way of saying how well the mattress adjusts or responds to your sleeping positions while you sleep.

We had our mattress testers lie in each sleeping position, side, stomach and back. As they changed positions and got settled in, we asked them to rate on a scale from one to ten how quickly and easily the mattress responded to their movement.

Our sleep subjects noticed that the top layers of the Rivet mattress our soft and create a “sinking” feeling. However, once past the comfort layers, the sleep subjects felt the base foam.

So the Amazon Rivet scored a 7 out of 10 for responsiveness.

What Makes Amazon Rivet Different?

Celliant Cover

The Rivet’s cover fabric is woven with Celliant, a patented mineral blend that increases the delivery of oxygen to your cells for recovery, making this a great option for active people or sleepers with pain.

Fast Shipping

Sold by the major online retailer, Amazon, where you can opt for two-day shipping which is much quicker delivery than most mattress retailers with around 7 to 10-day delivery windows.

What to Watch Out For

  • The return process for the Amazon Rivet is very difficult. To return this product, you must call customer support. Otherwise, if you go through the automated process (which Amazon makes very easy do you don’t have to call), they will send you a UPS return label and expect you to have the mattress picked up. The problem is if you have unboxed your mattress this is impossible because you won’t be able to get it back in the box. However, if you call and tell them you have a mattress to return they don’t require you to ship it back.
  • Be aware that your Rivet mattress may have a mild scent when you unbox it – this is normal and should go away within a few hours.
  • The Rivet takes longer to puff up than other mattress options when unboxing. It may take a few hours for your Rivet to fully take its form.
  • It can take up to 30 nights to get used to sleeping on your Rivet mattress – particularly if your previous mattress was a traditional innerspring mattress.
  • The Rivet is currently only available in sizes full, queen and king.

Customer Reviews of the Amazon Rivet Mattress

The bed is great. My wife and I both experience deeper sleep. I’ve been having dreams like I haven’t had in years. The bed is nice that you are less disturbed by movement in the bed given the foam. It has a slight firm feel. Weston
I don't know what specifics I can provide but this mattress is simply the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Not owned. Slept in. High end hotels included. When you lay down on this mattress, it cradles your body so there is absolutely no pressure points anywhere. Darren C.
I bought this mattress to replace my previous of about 8 years. I have back pain, and this is my first foam mattress. In using this for just over a week, I can tell a difference in the morning with less back pain and stiffness. I thought the features along with the price point make this a great buy. We were looking at spending over $2k at a store, and am glad we didn't! I'll have to follow up after more time goes by, but so far we are quite happy. Adam K.
