How good is the Emma Comfort mattress?

Founded in Germany in 2015, the Emma mattress has made waves across the globe – 21 countries to be exact – and is an award-winning triple-layered foam mattress. It offers exceptional value for money – especially for those on a budget. It’s incredibly comfortable while also providing fantastic support for all sleeping positions. The Emma is a great choice for sleepers who want superior quality in foam design that’s made to relieve pressure and minimise partner disturbance.

The Emma Original mattress was its flagship product, but as of recently that mattress has been phased out and the Emma Comfort has been created as its replacement. The Emma comfort was designed after 2 years of feedback from the best-selling Emma Original mattress.

How does the Emma Comfort mattress feel?


We’d rate the Emma Comfort at a 6.5/10 on the firmness scale. It’s certainly softer than a traditional memory foam mattress, but if you’re used to spring/hybrid mattresses, you’ll certainly notice the increased firmness of this mattress.


The innovative foam layers of the Emma Comfort offer pressure-relief in all the important areas. The top layer gently hugs the protruding parts of your body, while the second, more resilient layer helps with proper weight distribution and support.


With cool, breathable, and moisture-wicking covers and foams the Emma Comfort l certainly keeps you from sweating up a storm during the night.

Construction of the Emma Comfort

The Emma Comfort is designed and dedicated for Australian sleepers. The Emma Comfort has two layers (whereas the Emma Original had three layers)

Fresh Air Comfort Cover

The elastic Fresh Air cover hugs the Emma Comfort perfectly and prevents your mattress from sliding. The white top is made from a climate control fiber that regulates humidity and keeps moisture away. The grey bottom ensures perfect air circulation, so you breathe easy all night long.

Airgocell® Foam

The ultra-comfy Airgocell® layer is point-elastic which allows one area of your mattress to compress without impacting the rest. If you share a bed with someone who moves while they sleep, you won’t feel a thing. Airgocell® foam is also moisture-wicking to keep your sleep nice and dry.

HRX Foam

The supportive HRX Foam layer is made with special zoning technology for proper hip, shoulder, and spinal alignment. This innovative foam helps your mattress contour perfectly to your individual body shape. The foams’ open pores enhance breathability, so you sleep cool and fresh

Cover Layer Material

Removable and washable top cover: 99% polyester and 1% elastane.

Side cover: 100% polyester.

Bottom cover: 87% polyester and 13% polypropylene.


With a 10 year warranty, it’s safe to say the Emma Comfort is a reliable and durable mattress. With a combination of resilient and high-density foams designed to retain their supportive properties longer than your average foam mattress, the quality of materials and stitching is also very apparent.

Sleeper type analysis

Perhaps what makes the Emma Comfort so universally popular is that this medium-firm mattress has been designed to suit all sleepers across the sleep position spectrum. The 25 cm of high-quality, zoned memory foam keep your spine, hips, and shoulders aligned and supported in every possible position.

side sleeper

If we had to choose which sleeper position would best suit the Emma Comfort, it would be side sleepers. Side sleepers will find their shoulders and hips cushioned by the bouncy upper layer and zoned support, making it a comfortable and gentler feeling on the “bonier” parts of the body.

back sleeper

Back sleepers will also enjoy the Emma Comfort with the pressure-relieving zoned support keeping their spine supported and aligned all night long. Meanwhile, the softer top layer also helps contour the body without making it feel like you’re sinking.

front sleeper

Front sleepers will certainly love the weight distribution features offered by the seven zones of support.

combo sleeper

Thanks to its buoyancy and soft top layer, combination sleepers will enjoy the freedom to easily move around during the night while feeling supported in any position they land in.

How much weight can the Emma mattress hold?

The Emma mattress is suitable for individuals who weigh up to 130 kgs or couples who weigh up to 250 kgs. Therefore, if you are someone with a larger body type, the Emma Comfort mattress might not be best suited for you.

Is the Emma mattress good for couples?

The Emma Comfort is a good choice for couples. Despite being bouncier and more resilient than traditional memory foam mattresses, the Emma Comfort offers low motion transfer. It absorbs shock from motion quite well and provides minimal motion transfer.

Edge support & motion isolation

Edge Support

Foam mattresses aren’t necessarily known for having excellent edge support – unlike their hybrid/spring mattresses counterparts. However, the firm bottom layer of the Emma Comfort does offer pretty decent edge support and stops major sinkage. Still, edge support is not as good as what a spring or hybrid mattress would provide. 

Motion isolation

The Emma Comfort offers great motion isolation thanks to the firm bottom layer working in conjunction with the softer top layer. This creates a great and comfy sleep surface that is both responsive but also isolated. 


Emma offers free delivery on all mattresses to all areas, with delivery taking between 0-7 days depending on the time of order and where you live.

Final verdict after 30 sleeps

The Emma Comfort is a bit of a game-changer. It usually takes me a few nights to a week to get used to a new mattress but with the Emma Comfort, it took only one or two nights for me to feel comfortable and easily fall asleep. After a month of sleeping on the Emma Comfort, my morning aches and pains were noticeably absent.

The firmness of the mattress (dare I say) was “just right”, especially considering I don’t typically love foam mattresses. In terms of sleeping with my partner, I did find I could feel him moving around more during the night in comparison to similar mattresses, but the value and other benefits of the Emma Comfort outweigh that minimal disturbance. 

Emma comparison

If you’re searching for a well-priced foam mattress that’s received numerous awards around the world, you really can’t look past the Emma Comfort mattress. But how does it compare to similar players in the space? In terms of feel, if you’re looking for a medium foam mattress, the Emma Comfort should be top of your list.

However, if you’re looking for something a bit firmer or adjustable, Ecosa and Koala come in at a similar price point while also offering the feature of being able to adjust the firmness of your mattress. So, if you prefer to have the option of adjusting the firmness, you’d be better off going with Ecosa or Koala.
