Sleeping like a baby, with Eve mattress

October 12, 2015

In need of a new mattress? We’ve been trying out the Eve mattress in gloriously comfortable king size

Eve mattress king size memory foam review

Sorry to keep going on about this, but OH SLEEP. It’s one of the most important things when you’re a parent and one of the things you spend the most time thinking about.

My babies sleep like, well, babies – they wake up a lot, lots – so we don’t have a quality amount of bed time, but we use our bed for much more than sleep (no sniggering at the back there, think breastfeeding, story time, naps and so on). So when we sized up beds for more space  we were happy to swap our old uncomfortable, seen-better-days double for a brand new Eve mattress we were sent to review.

Memory foam mattress review - cheap mattress

Eve mattresses are only sold online meaning you can save loads on typically expensive high street prices, and Eve only sell one type of mattress (in uber comfortable sizes from single up to giant 7ft x 7ft, including Ikea sizes, king and super king). This  means no worrying about the choice between memory foam, pockets, springs and so on. Which is really helpful when you’re buying online and can’t test it first. But they’re so confident you’ll like it there’s a 100 day test period so you can send it back at any point during that time.

It arrives in a box, which makes it really handy for getting in the house and up the stairs (it’s rolled up like a swiss roll and magically expands when you get it out). The box is also bright yellow, covered in positive sleep sayings and pretty fun to hang out in if you’re three.

Review of the Eve mattress

In action, the mattress – with it’s distinctive yellow side stripe – is a lot softer than we were used to, and I was worried it would be too soft. But it’s actually surprisingly supportive and feels amazing.

It is so comfortable that it means I don’t wake up with back ache from lying-down night feeds, and it’s softer on my head if I have to ditch the pillows due to close proximity of a small child.

Sleeping like a baby? Yes, but blissfully so… There’s more info on the Eve website (and also a new set of Eve mattresses with limited edition designs printed on the cover).

    We swapped our bed for a super kingsize after Baby Girl came along and it became apparent our bed was no longer our own. Best thing we’ve ever done. That mattress looks super comfy – and I love the photos of E in the box! What is it with kids and boxes?!

    Ahhh lovely lovely sleep! The mattress sounds fab and process of buying it looks perfect. I always get too confused with choice and would much prefer a company to say “here you are, we’ve done shedloads of sleep research and this is the best mattress we came up with”. Brilliant!

    I’ve realised over the years that mattresses are definitely the thing that you shouldn’t scrimp on because SLEEEEEP. Great that there is a test period too xx
