CRāVE mattress review

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

Set up test

The CRāVE Luxury Firm Hybrid Innerspring mattress took us just over minute and a half to set-up. The CRāVE mattress was a little heavy on the packaging, and came in a large, long box (making it a bit hard to maneuver). The mattress had minimal smell but took some time to puff to life. It came to full shape after a few hours.

So for our setup test, CRāVE gets a 7 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 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 CRāVE mattress kept 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 is 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 a forth a few times. We then took a look at how much the wine inside of the glass moved.

That wine was a little tipsy! So we gave it a 7.

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave CRāVE a 7.75 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 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.”

The CRāVE scored an 8  for the edge shoe test. RJ and Asha both felt it was reasonably supportive while sitting on the end of the bed.

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 found the edge not too risky to sleep  on. So for the edge support side, the CRāVE scored an 8.25.

So CRāVE gets a 8.1 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 CRāVE 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.

RJ’s pressure mapping results showed mainly blue and green with some yellow and red in his shoulders! So we give him a 7.

We saw a decent amount of red in Asha’s shoulders, so we give her a 6.5.

So for a total pressure relief score, CRāVE gets a 6.75 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 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.

Both RJ and Asha’s spines were pretty straight with a slight curve towards the base of the neck.

For spine alignment, CRāVE gets a 8 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.

The CRāVE seems to be a pretty responsive mattress.

So CRāVE gets a 8.5 out of 10 for responsiveness.

A look inside

The CRāVE mattress is made with four layers of foam and pocket coils a covered in a stretch knit cover:

  1. Mattress Cover – Breathable and cool stretch knit cover that is fully zippered.
  2. Memory Foam – 1.5” Memory Foam layer for pressure relief. Responsive to pressure and higher airflow for cooling.
  3. High-Density Support Foam – Helps responsiveness last longer. Balance of cushion and stiffness.
  4. Pocket Coil Spring – 6″ Firm Pocketed Coil Spring for motion isolation and pressure point support. Extra perimeter of a nested coil border to prevent a feeling of roll off.
  5. Foam Base – 1” Poly Foam providing a solid base for the springs.

What CRāVE customers have to say

  • “Wow this mattress is SO comfortable!! I don’t ever want to get out of bed!! It arrives in a box all rolled up in plastic. You take the 2 rolls of plastic off and the mattress like “jumps” right up. it is so soft and is the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on!!” – Tiffany B.
  • “Here I am with my new CRāVE Mattress – after taking it out of the box, it was so easy to cut the plastic around it and have it pop open onto the box spring. The fabric is beautiful looking and it’s a dream to sleep on! We love it!” – Stephen M.
