Ecosa is one of the most well-known and popular Australian mattress in a box products, and for good reason. This memory foam mattress comes with the ability to tailor the firmness to suit your body and needs. Whether you like medium, medium-firm or firm, the customisation feature of the Ecosa G-7 memory foam mattress is a real selling point. The mattress also comes in a range of extra sizes like long single and super king – so there really is something for all sleepers! However, Ecosa has very recently upped the ante with a new line of mattresses – specifically the Pure Mattress (a hybrid-latex mattress) and the Vital Mattress (a hybrid memory foam mattress). Now with three very different mattresses in its range, how do you choose the right mattress for you? In this blog, we’ll be comparing Ecosa’s three mattresses so you can feel confident picking the one that will suit you best.

Who will love it?

As one of the most well-known mattress in a box products in Australia, the memory foam Ecosa mattress offers pretty good value for money. Its drawing card is its unique feature that allows you to adjust the firmness to suit your needs, with three tiers available. Whatever firmness you prefer, the Ecosa mattress can cater to it, which is a real bonus. 

How does the Ecosa mattress feel? 

The standard Ecosa mattress comes with a medium pressure option, which is how all Ecosa mattresses are shipped. It’s easier to get a firmer mattress by swapping the layers or flipping the mattress. The layers include a G-7 Gel Memory Foam on top, the ECO-Tex Memory Foam in the middle, and then the Ergonomic Support Foam on the bottom. The medium-firm option comes with the ECO-Tex Memory Foam on top, then the G-7 Gel Memory Foam, and the Ergonomic Support Foam. The firm pressure option comes with a configuration of the Ergonomic Support Foam on top, followed by the G-7 Gel Memory Foam, and then the ECO-Tex Memory Foam. 

The customisation feature makes the Ecosa mattress work for most sleepers, but typically back and side sleepers will enjoy it the most as the foam supports the natural curve of the body, with a comfort layer offering cushioning for pressure points. Many customers suggest they wake up with less back pain and neck stiffness. The medium version, as you can imagine, is the softest of all three. It still feels relatively firm, but at the same time allows your body to comfortably sink into it. For people who enjoy a balance between soft and firm, you’ll love the feel of the Ecosa.  

In terms of mattress bounce, due to its density it doesn’t respond to natural sleep movements as well as innerspring mattresses. That’s why for the most part, it’s definitely ideal for people who enjoy a mattress that’s on the firmer side.  

What’s on the inside?

The Ecosa mattress starts with a Tencel and polyester cover that can be removed and washed, which sits over a waterproof ‘inner cover’ that is designed to keep the Ecosa the mattress waterproof and dust mite-free. You can remove the waterproof cover if you want. The Tencel and waterproof covers sit over multiple foam comfort layers that include a ‘G-7 Gel Memory Foam’ and an ‘ECO-Tex Memory Foam’. The Ecosa mattress also has pincore holes, which allow air to flow freely through all layers of the mattress, which is especially ideal for hot sleepers. 

What truly makes the Ecosa mattress a winner is the specialised cover materials. The inner cover is made of a German-engineered micro-filament fibre. With the tiny filaments, this fabric is 100% waterproof and protects the foam layers from 99% of dust mites. It’s also nice and breathable. Around this layer is a removable double-knitted polyester cover, which uses high-quality fabric for breathability and flexibility. 

Pure Mattress: Hybrid Latex Mattress 

  • Mattress type: Hybrid latex 
  • Warranty period:15 years
  • Trial: 100 Night Trial
  • Waterproof: No
  • Adjustable firmness: 2 layers 
  • Height: 29cm 
  • Price (Queen): $3,200

Who will love it?

  • You want a hybrid mattress
  • You’re looking for tailor-made firmness
  • You’re eco-conscious 

Who won’t rate it?

  • You’re after something cheaper 
  • You like a firm mattress 

The Pure Mattress is the most expensive mattress in Ecosa’s range as it’s made from eco-friendly, high-performance materials with sustainability in mind. The natural latex is harvested from rubber trees to create the perfect amount of support. 

It’s OceanCycle certified, with 80 plastic bottles collected from the ocean and repurposed into the Pure Mattress cover. It’s also carbon neutral, with all carbon produced to create and deliver the Pure Mattress offset via Green Story (a platform to measure and communicate the environmental impact). Finally, it’s Oeko Tex 100 certified, meaning no harmful substances or nasty chemicals were used to produce the Pure Mattress.

How does it feel? 

Similar to the original Ecosa mattress, you can adjust the firmness level of the Pure Mattress. However, there are only two firmness settings compared to the Ecosa’s three settings – medium firm and medium-firm. As such, if you like an ultra firm mattress, the Pure might not be for you. 

However, if you suffer from back pain you might find great comfort in the Pure Mattress’s 7 zones of pocket springs, with firm pressure to support your lower back and knees, and more cushioning for pressure points in your shoulders and hips, creating a good amount of  spinal alignment

Meanwhile, firmer springs surround the perimeter of your mattress for reinforced edge support, so no rolling off in the middle of the night.

What’s on the inside? 

The outside of the Pure Mattress consists of a removable OceanCycled cover. Next, there’s the open cell dunlop latex for breathable comfort and medium firmness.

Next comes the micro coils, with thousands of tiny micro coils that evenly distribute weight, allow airflow and provide pressure relief. Following this is the adaptive talalay latex which is what you can flip over to get a medium-firm mattress feel. Then comes the 7 zone pocket springs to ensure spinal alignment, edge support and minimal partner disturbance, and under that a layer of reinforced latex foam to support the pocket springs. 

Vital Mattress: Hybrid Memory Foam Mattress/Pocket Springs 

  • Mattress type: Hybrid memory foam/Pocket springs  
  • Warranty period:15 years
  • Trial: 100 Night Trial
  • Waterproof: No
  • Adjustable firmness: 0
  • Height: 23cm 
  • Price (Queen): $950

Who will love it?

  • You want a budget mattress
  • You want a mattress with bounce 
  • You’re a side, back and stomach sleeper 

Who won’t rate it?

  • You’re after a customisable mattress
  • You’re sleeping with a partner who tosses and turns a lot 

If you’re after something a little less expensive, the Vital might be for you. It’s Ecosa’s budget mattress, with a Queen coming in at just $950. Like the Pure mattress, the Vital mattress was built with sustainability in mind. OceanCycle certified, with 120 plastic bottles collected from the ocean and repurposed into the Vital Mattress cover. It’s carbon neutral and Oeko Tex 100 certified as well. 

 How does it feel?

A comfortable hybrid mattress with medium-firm, the Vital Mattress has 7 zones of pocket springs along the body to ensure better alignment and support where you need it, so you can have a pain-free sleep.

Unlike the Ecosa G-7 and the Pure mattress, the Vital isn’t customisable so if the mattress is either too soft or too firm, you cannot adjust it. 

And, because the mattress is made of pocket springs, you can expect a bit more bounce from this mattress, which depending on your needs might be a good or bad thing. However, if partner disturbance is important for you, it’s worth mentioning that while Ecosa says this mattress has zero partner disturbance, pocket spring mattresses in general aren’t known for their motion transfer capabilities. 

What’s on the inside? 

The outside of the Vital mattress is a removable OceanCycled cover. Next is the air memory foam which features pincore holes for ultra-breathability. Underneath that is the tranquil foam for pressure relieving comfort and support. Next is the transition foam which alleviates the reactive force of the pocket springs and enhances no partner disturbance.

Sitting under are the 7 zone pocket springs to support the body, align the spine and cushion pressure points. Underneath is a protective layer of recycled felt for the pocket springs, and at the bottom of the mattress is reinforced foam which supports and protects the pockets springs. 

Wrapping up 

Ecosa has truly upped the competition by offering a memory foam mattress, a hybrid latex mattress and a pocket spring mattress in its range. There’s now a mattress type to suit every sleeper, and not to mention a bigger variety of price points to suit every budget.
