Robin mattress review

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

Visit Robin

Set up test

The Robin mattress took us about four and a half minutes to set up. The mattress and mattress topper are packaged separately.

It took us right about two minutes to set up the mattress itself and two and a half minutes to unbox and put the mattress topper on. The Robin mattress had little smell and took its full shape after a few hours.

So for our setup test, Robin 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 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 1 to 10 how much movement they felt when their partner was moving around with 10 being no movement at all.

No real complaints here! The Robin kept motion transfer to a minimum. RJ and Asha gave it a collective score of 8.

Part B - The Wine

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

That wine was a little tilty but overall quite still. We gave it a 7 for our wine test.

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave Robin a 7.5 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.”

RJ and Asha felt the support was good on the Robin, but not exceptional. They scored it a 7.5 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 felt quite safe and comfortable laying on the edge of the Robin. For the edge support side test, the Robin scored an 8.25.

So Robin gets a 7.9 out of 10 for edge support.

Pressure Relief Test

You have enough pressure in your day-to-day, you don’t need it from your mattress too. 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 Robin 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 mainly blue and green, with a few pressure points on RJ’s shoulders.  So we give him a 7.5.

We also saw red in Asha’s shoulders, so we give her a 7.

So for a total pressure relief score, Robin gets a 7.25 out of 10.

Spine Alignment Test

Did you know your sleeping posture is just 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 was pretty darn straight with a slight curve towards the base of the neck. That’s what we like to see!

For spine alignment, Robin 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.

If you want a good responder, Robin is the bed for you!

So Robin gets a 9 out of 10 for responsiveness.

A look inside

The Robin mattress is an innerspring mattress that comes with the choice of a detachable topper that zips on. Here’s a glimpse inside:

  • Choose your topper!
    • The 2.5’’ Cool Comfort Topper wicks away moisture and provides airflow to keep you cool.
    • The 3.5’’ Plush Comfort Topper combines TENCEL® and memory foam to contour to your body while you sleep.
  • 8.5” of 7-zoned pocket coils providing pressure-relief, motion isolation, and spinal alignment
  • High-density foam lines the walls of the Robin mattress to prevent sagging and create soft, yet supportive edges.
