Zonkd mattress review

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

Visit Zonkd

Set up test

The Zonkd mattress took us right at three minutes to set up.  Zonkd was a little heavy on the packaging, but the mattress had a minimal odor and expanded to full size within seconds.

So for our setup test, Zonkd gets a 7.5 out of 10.

Motion Transfer Test

When we say motion transfer, all we mean is how much movement you feel if your partner gets up or moves around on the other side of the bed. You’ll want motion transfer to be pretty minimal for a good, uninterrupted night’s sleep, so we measured how well Zonkd kept motion transfer at a minimum.

The Mattress Advisor motion transfer test has two parts.

Part A - The Humans

For the first part, we asked 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 the other was moving around. A score of 10 would mean they felt no movement at all. 

The Zonkd kept motion transfer to a minimum. RJ and Asha gave it a collective score of 8.75 out of 10.

Part B - The Wine

Next, we conducted 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.

There was a little sway in the wine, but overall the glass stayed pretty still! So we gave it an 8 out of 10.

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave Zonkd a 8.4 out of 10.

Edge Support Test

When choosing a mattress, you may not think to examine 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 your mattress provides.

The Mattress Advisor edge support test has two parts. 

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 noted the edge felt moderately supportive, so the Zonkd scored a 7 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 on that section of the bed.

RJ and Asha felt moderately secure when laying on the edge, but did note that there was a bit of a dip on the edge. So for the edge support side, the Zonked scored a 6.75.

So Zonkd gets a 6.9 out of 10 for edge support.

Pressure Relief Test

When shopping for a mattress, you’ll want to find something that relieves pressure on your hips, thighs and shoulders – otherwise, you may wake up sore and achy. Let’s take a look at how well the Zonkd 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 on RJ! So we gave him a 9 out of 10.

We saw some red in Asha’s shoulders, so we gave her a 7.5 out of 10.

So for a total pressure relief score, Zonkd gets a 8.25 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. Ideally, you want to see a straight line from the neck all the way to the tailbone for proper alignment.

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

For spine alignment, Zonkd gets a 8.75 out of 10.

Responsiveness Test

When it comes to getting comfortable on your mattress, responsiveness becomes very important. Responsiveness is a way of describing how well the mattress adjusts or responds to your sleeping positions while you move around in your 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.

This mattress had RJ and Asha feeling like they could easily stay zonked out if they adjusted positions while sleeping!

So Zonkd gets a 9 out of 10 for responsiveness.

A look inside

Zonkd is made with three layers of foam and latex. Here’s a look at what’s inside:

  • Top layer: Copper-infused memory foam contours your body while dispersing heat to keep you cool throughout the night.
  • Middle layer: Talalay latex foam provides the support and firmness of your liking. The density of this layer differs depending on the firmness level you choose (soft, medium or firm).
  • Bottom layer: Foundation foam provides stability and durability for years to come.
  • Mattress cover: All layers are encased in a soft antimicrobial cover to help keep the mattress fresh.
