WinkBed Luxury Firm mattress review

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

Visit WinkBeds

Set up test

The WinkBeds mattress is delivered full sized and is quite large and heavy. Delivery is free, but installation is not included. For an extra fee of $99 you can have your WinkBeds mattress set-up. It might be worth it if you have to take your mattress up stairs.

So for our setup test, WinkBed Luxury Firm gets a 7.5 out of 10.

Motion Transfer Test

Most of the time isolation isn’t a good thing. But when it comes to motion transfer, isolation is exactly what you want! Let’s take a look at how well the WinkBed Luxury Firm isolates movement in our motion transfer test.

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.

The WinkBeds mattress did not isolate RJ and Asha’s movements as well as others. RJ even noted that the bed felt a bit shaky. So, RJ and Asha gave it a collective score of 6.25.

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 and forth a few times. We then took a look at how much the wine inside of the glass moved.

The wine was a bit tipsy on the WinkBeds mattress. We saw the glass tilting. So we gave it a 6.5 for our wine test.

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave WinkBed Luxury Firm a 6.4 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 how much edge support the bed provides.

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 WinkBeds mattress did an excellent job of keeping its structure as Asha and RJ sat on its edge. They gave it a perfect 10 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.

Once again, RJ and Asha found the WinkBeds mattress very comfortable when lying on the edge. They felt as if they could sleep on the edge of the WinkBed all night long without falling off. So for the edge support side test, it  scored a 9.5.

So WinkBed Luxury Firm gets a 9.75 out of 10 for edge support.

Pessure 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 WinkBeds 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.

RJ’s pressure map looks good. No red in sight! So we give him an 8.5 for pressure relief.

We saw some areas of red in Asha’s shoulders and hips, so we give her a 7.

So for a total pressure relief score, WinkBed Luxury Firm gets a 7.75 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.

The WinkBed Luxury Firm mattress kept our sleep subject’s spines mostly in alignment. Only a slight curve up to the base of the neck.

For spine alignment, WinkBed Luxury Firm gets a 8.75 out of 10.

Responsiveness Test

Responsiveness is just a fancy way of saying how well the mattress adjusts or responds to your sleeping positions while you sleep. This becomes important when considering how quickly and easily you get comfortable when moving around.

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 like getting comfortable fast, this is your kind of mattress!

So WinkBed Luxury Firm gets a 9 out of 10 for responsiveness.

What WinkBed Luxury Firm customers have to say

  • “We love our WinkBed. My husband and I were both having trouble sleeping on our 7-year-old Sleep Number. He and I like different firmness levels, but we’ve both found comfort on our new WinkBed.” – Allison F.
  • “We’ve had it for a few months, and the bed is SUPER comfortable. We had a Sleep Number for many years, and like the WinkBed much more already. It’s sturdy, yet fluffy on top. No sinking, and even a warranty in case it ever does.” – Kimberly M.
  • “We’re now on our second month with our wink bed and love it! My husband and I are both side sleepers and struggled with back pain for several years. This mattress has eliminated any pain we used to wake up to. Not great for stomach sleepers, but great for side and back.” – Courtney O.
