Set up test

The REAL SLEEP mattress took us  1 minute and 20 seconds to set up. The REAL SLEEP mattress was light and took its full form after about an hour. The mattress had a mild odor after unboxing it that dissipated in a few hours.

So for our setup test, REAL SLEEP gets a 8 out of 10.

Motion Transfer Test

Part A - The Humans

The REAL SLEEP mattress let some motion slip through, but overall kept motion transfer low. RJ and Asha gave it a collective score of 7.5.

Part B - The Wine

The wine faired well on the REAL SLEEP mattress. It stayed quite still! So we gave it an 8.5.

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave REAL SLEEP a 8 out of 10.

Edge Support Test

Part A - The Shoe Test

The REAL SLEEP mattress wasn’t the most stable with RJ sitting on the edge, so it scored a 6 for the edge shoe test.

Part B - The Side Test

Once again, RJ and Asha found it a little difficult to lay on the edge securely. So for the edge support side, the REAL SLEEP mattress scored a 7.25.

So REAL SLEEP gets a 6.6 out of 10 for edge support.

Pressure Relief Test

For RJ, we saw mainly green, but there was some significant yellow and red in his shoulders! So we give him a 7.5.

Asha had red in her shoulder and yellow down her thigh, so we gave her a 6.5.

So for a total pressure relief score, REAL SLEEP gets a 7 out of 10.

Spine Alignment Test

The REAL SLEEP mattress did a decent of keeping both RJ and Asha’s spines in alignment. Their spines were primarily level with a slight curvature at the top of their spine.

For spine alignment, REAL SLEEP gets a 8.75 out of 10.

Responsiveness Test

We had RJ and Asha lie in each sleeping position, side, stomach and back and then rate how quickly and easily the mattress responded to their movement.

FAQ: What is Responsiveness in a Mattress?

So REAL SLEEP gets a 8.5 out of 10 for responsiveness.

A look inside

The REAL SLEEP mattress keeps things ‘real simple’ with just two layers of their exclusive FloraFlex memory foam and covered by a 100% organic cotton cover.

  1. The top layer of open cell memory foam maximizes airflow and draws heat away from the body.
  2. 10” base layer of supportive FloraFlex memory foam.

What REAL SLEEP customers have to say

  • “I was hesitant about ordering, but after a couple of weeks my husband and I have slept better than with our old mattress. I don’t wake up as much in the middle of the night and back feels better in the morning. Best purchase we have made in awhile…..thanks!” – Lisa H.
  • “Two things I really like about this mattress, how easy it is to make the bed with sheets, because it is lightweight and just easy enough for me to make a king size bed, compared to other mattresses. Secondly, NO HEAT generated at all that is super +++++. Both my husband & I like the sleep we get with this and the comfort.” – Robin M.
  • “We had a Tempur-Pedic and I could just not get comfortable. I work out a lot and I felt like I would wake up with a lot of pressure in my legs and back. From the first night, this was so much better. Firm but soft. I couldn’t believe how my body felt! I haven’t slept like this in years!” – Michael M.
