Blello mattress review

Take a deeper look into our review of the Blello mattress, including our methodology, scoring and mattress performance to help you determine if this could be the mattress for you.

Set up test

The Blello mattress took us just about a minute and a half to set up. It was light, simple to maneuver and had minimal off-gassing.

So for our setup test, Blello gets a 8.5 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 for the sake of your sleep and your relationship.

Part A - The Humans

The Mattress Advisor motion transfer test is a two-part test. We start by asking both RJ and Asha 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.

The Blello did a pretty good job of keeping motion transfer to a minimum. RJ and Asha gave it a collective score of 8.5.

Part B - The Wine

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

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

The wine was a little shaky, but it held up okay! So we gave it a 7.75.

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave Blello a 8.1 out of 10.

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  if you 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 both RJ and Asha 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.”

RJ and Asha both noted some sinkage while they laced up, but overall it was moderately supportive. So the Blello scored a 7.75 for the edge shoe test.

Part B - The Side Test

Next, we had RJ and Asha 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.

RJ and Asha noted a decent amount of support while they stretched out on the edge. So for the edge support side, the Blello scored an 8.

So Blello gets a 7.9 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. Let’s take a look at how well the Blello 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.

We saw very minimal areas of high-pressure on RJ. So we gave him an 8.5.

However, we did see some red in Asha’s shoulders. So we gave her a 6.5.

So for a total pressure relief score, Blello gets a 7.5 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 RJ and Asha’s backs to see the alignment. You’ll want to see a straight line from the neck all the way to the tailbone.

RJ and Asha’s spines looked pretty straight with a slight dip in the lower back.

For spine alignment, Blello gets a 8.5 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 RJ and Asha 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.

RJ and Asha both felt the Blello mattress adjusted quickly to their new positions.

So Blello gets a 9 out of 10 for responsiveness.

  • 2.5’’ Comfort Foam: This core foam layer is made of Qualatex™ Foam created by Carpenter Co. It is designed to prevent the “sinking” feeling that often happens on foam mattresses. This foam is hypoallergenic and 100% recyclable!
  • 6’’ Support Foam: This base foam layer is made of a high-density, poly-foam.

What Blello customers have to say

  • “I couldn’t be happier with my new Blello! I had a spring mattress for 8 years, and I started having back pain after using it for so long. I think the problem was the spring mattress was too soft and wasn’t supporting my back properly. I’m glad I came across Blello because medium-firm is perfect for me. My wife also loves it. We’ve been using our new mattress for almost two months now and I feel like we’ll keep it for a long time!” -Alper
  • “As a side sleeper, I have trouble with pressure on my arms and hips. My Blello has taken those issues away, and I feel extremely comfortable falling asleep on my side now. I certainly would recommend to others.” -Matt
  • “I LOVE my Blello mattress. It is extremely comfortable. I tend to be a restless sleeper-I used to keep my husband awake from all of the tossing and turning that I did. BUT with our new Blello mattress, I can toss and turn, and he doesn’t wake up!” -J.A.K
