Why we love Ecosa:

Ecosa is one of the most well-known and popular Australian mattress in a box products. It comes in a range of extra sizes, so you can really tailor it to your body size. It also has a customisation feature that allows you to tailor the firmness level to suit your body and needs. It’s good value for money and overall a highly well-regarded and generally loved mattress-in-a-box bed.

As one of the most well-known mattress in 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.

Who’s Going to Love The Ecosa Mattress

There are plenty of reasons to love the Ecosa mattress. Here are some of the best reasons to choose the Ecosa mattress:

  • Memory foam: The Ecosa mattress is a full memory foam mattress, so if you’re after something that moulds perfectly to your body, this one’s for you.
  • Tailor-made firmness: If you want a mattress to really suit your firmness preference, with 3 customisable layers, you can’t beat the Ecosa.
  • Side, back, or stomach sleeper: Ideal for back, side or stomach sleepers, whatever your sleeper style, the Ecosa is an incredibly comfortable and supportive mattress.

Who Should Consider Alternatives To The Ecosa Mattress

There are a couple of reasons why the Ecosa mattress might not be for you, including:

  • You want a hybrid mattress: If you’re after a hybrid mattress – and one with a little more bounce, you might not enjoy the Ecosa so much.
  • You want a soft mattress: Even at it’s softest setting, the Ecosa mattress overall is quite firm, so if you love an ultra-soft mattress, you might not get the desired comfort from the Ecosa.

The Ecosa Mattress Firmness

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.

Is Ecosa Mattress Good For Larger (100kg+) People?

The Ecosa mattress will support up to a total of 300kg, or 150kg per sleeper. Here’s how it feels for side, front and back sleepers

Is The Ecosa Cooling?

One of the great benefits of the Ecosa mattress is its ability to facilitate cooling. With the open cell and gel memory foam surface layers, this mattress will sleep cool for nearly everyone – so hot sleepers and neutral sleepers alike will love it.

How Is The Edge Support Of The Ecosa Mattress?

Edge support from the Ecosa mattress sits within the normal limits of a foam mattress. Basically, if you sit on the edge of a memory foam mattress you will sink in slightly. All foam compresses with weight, and the Ecosa mattress does not have the inner springs to rebound you. In terms of motion isolation, it’s not as good as innerspring or hybrid mattresses.

How Is The Responsiveness Of The Ecosa Mattress?

Being a memory foam mattress, the Ecosa mattress isn’t as responsive as say a hybrid mattress. However, as a combo sleeper myself, I didn’t find myself getting stuck in the mattress as I moved around and it certainly facilitated an easy transition from my front, to side and to my back.

Motion Isolation: Is It Good For Those Who Share A Bed?

Overall, the Ecosa mattress is decent for couples, but might not be the right mattress if you have a particularly unsettled/restless sleeper in the bed. Partner disturbance isn’t significant, but it’s definitely still present and more noticeable than other competitor mattresses.

Ecosa Mattress Construction

Obviously, you cannot slice and dice your Ecosa mattress (well, you could, but that’d be silly), so we’ve done it for you. Here’s what it looks like 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 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.

Ecosa mattress customisation features

The special feature of the Ecosa mattress is its firmness customisation. How this works is you unzip the outer covers of the mattress and rearrange the foam layers to give it a medium, medium-firm or firm feel. The foam layers aren’t right, so it’s best if you have two people to do this.

Shipping & Unboxing Of The Ecosa Mattress

Delivery of the Ecosa Mattress is free and the mattress can be delivered Australia-wide – next-day for metro areas.

Unboxing the Ecosa is pretty simple – it’s not as heavy as the Ecosa pure, but it’s still heavy enough to need two people. But, they did make it easier to maneuver with a handle and wheels built right into the box. This is actually true for ALL the Ecosa mattresses, they have this handy box feature.

Removing the Ecosa from its packaging was easy enough, and it comes with a handy plastic cutter.

Ecosa Mattress Warranty Information

What is covered

Ecosa offers a 15 year warranty.

Anyone who has purchased the mattress from Ecosa is entitled to the warranty.

The warranty covers the following defects in workmanship and materials of the Ecosa Pure Mattress that has at all times only been in normal domestic use:
  • Deterioration which causes the mattress to have a visible indentation greater than 20mm, as long as that indentation or sag has not resulted from use of an improper or unsupportive foundation as described in the FAQ.
  • Any physical flaw in the mattress that causes the foam material to split or crack, as long as the mattress has not been handled improperly.
  • In respect of the mattress cover only, any manufacturing defect in the zipper assembly or the fabric of the mattress cover. As noted below, a defect in respect of the mattress cover alone will not entitle you to a replacement Ecosa Pure Mattress, just the cover itself.

What isn’t covered

If it does not fall into one of the categories above in the ‘What does the warranty cover?’ section, then it is not covered by the warranty. For example:

  • A normal increase in the softness of the mattress which does not affect the pressure-relieving qualities of the mattress.
  • Comfort preference.
  • Abnormal use.
  • Physical abuse or damage to the mattress which causes defects such as burns, cuts, tears, liquid damage or stains.
  • Exposure to cold temperatures for a period of time that causes the materials to tear or permanently deform.
  • Dirt, stains, smells, or bed bug infestations resulting from poor mattress care.
  • Mould on the mattress of any kind.
  • Replacement of an Ecosa Pure Mattress due to defective cover. If you purchase a mattress and only the cover is defective (and not the mattress), we will only replace the cover and not the whole mattress.
  • For mattresses a defect or change in the mattress that is only a minor variation or normal change which does not affect the pressure redistributing properties of the product.
  • Any mattress sold “as-is”, “preconditioned”, “reconditioned”, “used”, “comfort return”, “returned”, “previously owned”, or any other similar wording indicating that the mattress is not “new” or of “first quality”, or has previously been purchased or used by someone else.
  • Ecosa will not accept exchanges for another size when the bundle deal is purchased.

Ecosa Pure Trial Period & Returns

You have 100 nights to decide if the Ecosa Pure is right for you.

To be eligible for a return, you must have been sleeping on your Ecosa Pure Mattress for a minimum of 14 nights. This is because it can take between 2-4 weeks for your body to adjust to any mattress.

If you are not completely satisfied after this trial period and before 100 nights of purchasing the mattress, you are eligible for a full refund from Ecosa.

They will come pick up the mattress (free of charge to you) and donate it to a charity partner.

Ecosa Vital vs Ecosa vs Ecosa Pure

Tossing up between the three mattresses? Here’s what I’d say.

If you want the ultimate level of customisation, I’d choose the Ecosa G-7 memory foam.

If you’re eco-conscious and want a mattress that’s sustainably made, choose the Pure mattress.

If you’re OK with no customisation and a mattress with slightly more responsiveness, the Vital might be right for you. 

MY TAKE 

How a mattress feels is very subjective, so take this advice with a grain of salt. I personally enjoyed sleeping on the Pure mattress best. I found it exceptionally comfy in every position and loved knowing I was sleeping on a product that’s eco-friendly.

I also love the Ecosa G-7 as I find its firmest setting very comfortable, but I don’t need it to be ultra-firm, which is why I liked the Pure in its medium-firm setting. 

The Vital is definitely comfortable, but I did find it to be a bit too responsive for my liking. The extra “bounce” is not something I’m used to, but if you’re someone who is used to a spring/hybrid mattress, the Vital might be just what you’re after. 

Addressing Ecosa Mattress Complaints

For the most part, the Ecosa mattress is a well-loved and incredibly popular mattress in a box. However, that’s not to say it’s loved by all (no mattress possibly ever could be!) Here are some of the more common complaints about the Ecosa mattress:

Some suggest it’s too firm (even on medium setting), while some say it fails to live up to its claims past 100 nights – with sagging and lack of support apparent. Some users also suggest customer support could be better, while others say delivery took longer than expected.

Conclusion

As someone who typically opts for a softer mattress, I was interested to see how I felt sleeping on the Ecosa mattress. It took a few nights to get used to a slightly firmer mattress (I kept it in the standard ‘medium’ firmness the mattress is shipped in) but 30 days on and I can confidently say my body has moulded really well to the mattress and I’ve had consistently good nights’ sleep. I typically sleep alone, but the nights my partner joined me (and he is a restless sleeper), I was could feel him move slightly, but I’m also a light sleeper. And, as someone who often suffers from back and neck pain, this has been greatly reduced after a month of sleeping on the Ecosa mattress.
