The Sleeping Duck Mattress feel
Its design uses a combination of springs and foam. While springs might be more traditional, this mattress makes use of newer spring technology. Combine that with the modular foam layers and you end up with a modern sleeping solution.
What makes this mattress really unique is that if you don’t like your current level of firmness (all mattresses begin with a firm or medium feel), you can request a new layer during your trial period to create a firmer or softer sleeping experience.
Thanks to its spring base and improved edge support that offer more bounce compared to foam, you can just effortlessly roll out of your bed. You’ll never sink too much (even when sitting on the edge of the mattress) as the spring base along with the trademarked Hyper-adaptive foam offer more bounce.
What are the Sleeping Duck Mattress perks?
One of its main advantages is that their customer service department will help you if you need to swap your foam layer so that you can find the right firmness to suit your preferences.
Also, thanks to the cover’s zipper, cleaning the cover or switching the foam layers is effortless.
What are the Sleeping Duck Mattress cons?
You’ll still experience a little bit of motion transfer as springs and bouncy foam have been used. Though, the foam layers that have been used at the top will minimise movement by quite a lot.
Which materials have been used in the Sleeping Duck?
Its construction is unequalled! The Sleeping Duck mattress makes use of a very dense foam, comfort foam as well as pocket springs.
Their team has recently developed their very own Hyper-adaptive foam which forms the top layer. This foam is latex-free and also doesn’t use any memory foam promising better relief from pressure. It’s also very breathable which will help to ensure ultimate comfort. What’s more this top layer can rebound your weight to shape to your position.
The next layer is a high-density foam layer that provides support. It’s this second layer that you can adjust to reach the firmness that’s just right for you. For instance, if you prefer something not too firm (yet not too soft), this layer will be a more absorbent foam.
At the bottom of the mattress you’ll find a 5-zone Support layer that’s been constructed out of springs which have all been wrapped individually. As these springs can act on their own, they’ll adjust to you so that your partner can continue sleeping peacefully.
A cover made from soft, breathable bamboo wraps all its inside layers together. What’s more, the bamboo also offers protection against microbes. To add to its luxuriousness, an interesting stitching pattern has been used.
Sleeping Duck Mattress Thickness and weight
It might be easy to change your different foam layers, though, if you need to transport your Sleeping Duck mattress, you’ll need someone to assist you. Its queen-sized mattress weighs close to 50 kilograms and boasts a thickness of 30 centimetres! Rest assured, it does come compressed in its packaging. This does help with navigation.
The Sleeping Duck Mattress price
Compared to other similar foam mattresses, you’ll have to fork out more for the Sleeping Duck mattress. Though, it does boast customisable firmness and you can rest assured knowing that only high-quality foam and natural materials have been used. Also, it comes with a 10-year warranty which covers manufacturing errors and excessive imprints (changes in its firmness, odor, wear and tear and discoloration are excluded).
Is the Sleeping Duck mattress the right solution for you?
Generally, the Sleeping Duck mattress can support two adults who weigh up to 140 kilograms each!
If you prefer to sleep on your back or side, you’ll really like the fact that you can request softer or firmer layers to fit your level of support and contour. In fact, as it’s so simple to change the level of firmness, countless people find it to be a comfy mattress.
The medium firmness offered by the mattress is quite popular amongst people who sleep on their sides as the mattress offers support to their shoulders and hips while enfolding their bodies. If you find that you’re sinking too deeply, you can get a firmer option.
People who prefer to sleep on their back have also reported to be happy with this mattress as the very dense foam, base springs and the trademarked Hyper-adaptive foam work well together to offer support to your lower back and neck. In fact, if you sleep on your back most of the time it would be wise to opt for the firm or medium mattress as something softer can lead to back ache.
Those who prefer to sleep on their stomach many times find that it’s not soft enough as more pressure is placed on sensitive parts. However, you could try the medium firmness to curb this issue if you’re bigger.
If you’ve found it difficult to find the right mattress to suit your sleeping style, the fact that it’s more expensive might just be the price you need to pay.
