The Tango Mattress Review In Real Life

We checked in with a sleeper who bought the Tango mattress after one night, one week, and one month of sleeping on it

Tango mattress

We find that most people leave reviews about their new mattress after only a few nights of sleeping on it, or sometimes even before they set it up…super helpful, right? This doesn’t give you any insight on how they feel after sleeping on the mattress for a while, which is the important part. So we asked real people a few questions about how they chose their mattress and what their experience was like after one night, one week, and one month on the mattress.

While every sleeper is different, we hope this sleeper’s mattress journey will help you in your own search.

Meet Ron*

Ron is a salesman in his early 60s that lives and works in Durham, NC. For years he slept on an old mattress that he can’t even remember where it came from. He recently upgraded to a queen size Tango mattress.

Ron is a side sleeper that has no trouble staying asleep all night long. He has no special conditions (such as back pain or sleeping too hot) and currently sleeps alone.

MA: Overall, how would you describe your first night on the Tango mattress?

R: Great! Much better than my old mattress. I tried the soft side first.

MA: Did you notice any difference in how you felt when you woke up?

R: I definitely felt well rested, but couldn’t tell a huge difference from the first night.

MA: How does this compare to other mattresses you’ve had in the past?

R: I have never had a mattress with a modern foam design like this (such as memory foam). I was skeptical of a non-spring mattress but was surprised by the support it provided.

On a scale from 1-5 with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best.

Motion transfer (feeling little to no movement from your sleeping partner): N/A
Support (body weight distributed evenly, no pains or aches): 3.5
Responsiveness (adjusts/responds to your body movements): 4
Temperature control (keeps you cool): 3

MA: How firm would you say the Tango is?

R: Hard to say after night one. I will try the firm side on the second night.

MA: Do you have any complaints about the Tango? Or anything you would change if you could?

R: No complaints, but looking forward to trying the firm side.

MA: Do you feel like the Tango mattress was worth the price you paid?

R: Yes.
