Emma Original mattress review: a great night's sleep or your money back

EVEN the most perfect of new homes could be ruined by a bad night’s sleep.

No one wants to wake up from a day of unpacking boxes and stripping wallpaper with a bad back, after a night on an old mattress that offers little support other than a spring into a shoulder blade.

Luckily for us, Emma was able to deliver one of its Original mattresses within 24-hours of us picking up the keys to our new home, and with the easy-to-manoeuvre ‘bed in a box’ concept and simple unpacking instructions, it wasn’t long before we were enjoying a comfortable night’s sleep.

The Original mattress combines “pressure-relieving” Airgocell, viscoelastic memory foam and cold foam.

The three layers also incorporate “advanced zoning”, which the company says gives support in all areas, adapting to any body shape.

We found the mattress was very supportive and any previous morning routine of clicking sore spines and shoulders back into place can be foregone.

The mattress is fairly firm, which suited us, but those preferring to sink into a mattress may want to look at another model or make, such as a Lux Mattress from Brook and Wilde.

Emma says the design also serves to distribute pressure evenly across the mattress.

This has successfully minimised the impact of a restless companion and helped ensure a good night’s sleep.

Also helping to ensure a peaceful night is the Airgocell foam, which is described as a “climate controlling” layer that allows heat to escape, ensuring a cool night’s sleep, something the company says is helped by the mattress cover, which contains special moisture-wicking fibres.

While we’ve been unable to test this in the height of summer, the technology seemed to work well during the brief Easter ‘heatwave’ and we’ve not found a night’s sleep too cold either.

A standard double is priced at £649, comparable with Eve and slightly cheaper than some other ‘bed in a box’ products on the market.

Although it may still be considered by some as quite an investment, the company offers a 200-night trial and a 10-year guarantee, which ensures you won’t be left with buyer’s remorse – even if it’s not the absolute perfect bed for you.
