Awards for the Recore Mattress

Recore Mattress Review Breakdown

Three layers of foam make up the Recore Mattress, combining cooling, contouring, and support.

The comfort layer uses 1.5 inches of synthetic latex, which contours to relieve pressure while providing a bit of bounce. A graphite infusion helps transfer excess heat away from the sleeper’s and towards air channels so that it can escape from the sleep surface.

A 2-inch layer of polyfoam serves as the transition layer. It helps redistribute the sleeper’s weight for enhanced pressure relief while acting as a barrier between the comfort and support layers. An infusion of gel within the polyfoam further cools the mattress. The support core consists of 7 inches of polyfoam, which reinforces the surface of the mattress and absorbs motion.

The Recore Mattress is encased in a cover that is removable and machine-washable. It is made up of a blend of polyester, spandex, and poly-viscose. This material is breathable to allow cooling airflow into the mattress surface. Silver-coated threads within the cover have antimicrobial properties to resist microbe growth.

With a rating of around 5 on the 10-point firmness scale, the Recore Mattress has a medium feel. This is on the softer end of the average range, making it a popular firmness for individuals who weigh less than 104 kilograms and side sleepers from all weight groups.

Mattress Performance

  • Motion Isolation

    The Recore Mattress’s three layers of foam absorb a moderate amount of motion, limiting the vibrations that travel across the surface of the mattress. A sleeper shouldn’t feel significant motion when their partner moves during the night. However, the responsive latex comfort layer does not eliminate all motion transfer, so a sleeper might still feel some vibrations when their partner changes positions. This motion isolation is similar to other all-foam models with latex comfort layers, but models with memory foam or polyfoam comfort layers often absorb more motion.

  • Pressure Relief

    As is the case with many all-foam models, pressure relief is one of the Recore’s greatest strengths. A 1.5-inch comfort layer of latex adjusts to the shape of the sleeper’s body. Latex’s low point elasticity spreads the compression over a wider area, lending to the sensation of sleeping “on” rather than “in” the bed. The 2-inch polyfoam transition layer also enhances the contouring and pressure relief.

    Weight and sleep position also contribute to whether or not a sleeper will experience pressure buildup on a mattress. Because of its medium feel, side sleepers and individuals who weigh under 104 kilograms may experience the most pressure relief when sleeping on the Recore Mattress.

  • Temperature Control

    The Recore sleeps cooler than many all-foam mattresses on the market thanks to its cooling technology. A breathable cover lets air circulate into the mattress. Graphite infused into the latex comfort layer pulls heat away from the sleeper’s body and redirects it to air channels so that it can escape. A gel-infusion within the polyfoam transition layer also boosts the mattress’s temperature regulation. Many all-foam models, especially those that contain memory foam, tend to trap heat. However, the Recore Mattress’s strong temperature control should keep most sleepers cool and comfortable, even if they’re usually prone to sleeping hot.

  • Edge Support

    Since all-foam models do not traditionally have reinforced edges, they usually don’t receive strong marks for edge support. Because of its relatively thin comfort layer and its firm polyfoam core, the perimeter of the Recore Mattress may feel sturdier than those of some models. Most individuals should be able to sleep near the edge of the bed without feeling like the compression could cause them to roll off. Sitting on the edge of the bed is also likely to be relatively easy. While most individuals should be able to use the complete surface area of the mattress without avoiding the perimeter, some heavier individuals could experience some edge sagging.

  • Ease of Movement

    The responsiveness of the Recore’s latex comfort layer may make it easier to move on than some all-foam models. This material adjusts to the shape of the sleeper, but it responds quickly to changes in pressure. The comfort layer is relatively thin, so most individuals shouldn’t sink in too deeply. Because of this combination of quick response and limited sinkage, most sleepers should not feel “trapped in the bed” by their own body impression.

  • Sex

    The Recore has a bouncier feel than many all-foam models, which some couples may prefer for sex. This responsiveness comes from the latex comfort layer. The comfort and transition layers also contour to the body, which may lead to better traction. Due to its all-foam construction, the Recore is virtually silent, making it discreet.

  • Off-Gassing

    Many new products have leftover manufacturing smells, and the same is true of most mattresses. Those that use synthetic foams and ship compressed often have more pronounced odors because these smells get trapped in the foam and do not have an opportunity to release until the mattress is unpacked.

    Experts generally view off-gassing odors as harmless for most individuals. However, some owners choose to leave their new mattress in a separate room until the smell dissipates, which usually occurs within two days. Because of its breathable design, we would expect the Recore Mattress to air out more quickly and completely than some all-foam models.

Sleeping Style and Body Weight

Side Sleepers:
Thanks to the cradling of the 1.5-inch latex comfort layer and 2-inch polyfoam transition, the Recore Mattress helps take some of the pressure off of a side sleeper’s shoulders and hips. These areas are usually particularly prone to pressure buildup due to their width, but the Recore redistributes the sleeper’s weight over the surface of the mattress to relieve the sharp pressure points often caused by side sleeping. The polyfoam core also limits how far a side sleeper’s shoulders and hips sink in, supporting better spinal alignment.

With its medium feel, the Recore may be a strong option for side sleepers from all weight groups. Those who weigh under 104 kilograms are likely to get an exceptional balance of conforming and support for a combination of pressure relief and proper spinal alignment. Individuals who weigh over 104 kilograms may still enjoy pressure relief, but they could experience sagging near their hips and shoulders that affects their spinal alignment.

Back Sleepers:
Many back sleepers can get the even support they need from the Recore Mattress. At 1.5 inches thick, the comfort layer is relatively thin. This limits how far a back sleeper’s hips sink in before they reach the firmer transition layer and core. Since sagging around the hips could put a strain on a back sleeper’s spine, support in this area is essential for a back sleeper to maintain their natural spinal alignment.

Back sleepers who weigh under 60 should get the most support. While the comfort layer softens the surface of the mattress for added comfort, the medium feel is firm enough that back sleepers in this weight group shouldn’t experience much if any sagging near their hips. Individuals who weigh between 60 and 104 kilograms could sink into the mattress a little too deeply near their hips, but this shouldn’t impact their spinal alignment significantly. People who weigh more than 104 kilograms may experience more significant sagging.

Stomach Sleepers:
Since it has a medium feel, the Recore Mattress is likely to be softer than ideal for most stomach sleepers. Stomach sleepers usually need a firmer mattress for extra support near the middle of the bed. This is because most individuals carry much of their weight near their hips and bellies, which can pull them too deeply into the mattress when they sleep on their stomachs.

The Recore’s latex comfort layer adds cushioning that many stomach sleepers may find comfortable. While the firmer polyfoam transition layer and core limit sinkage, some stomach sleepers could still experience sagging near their midsections. This effect may be most pronounced for individuals who weigh over 60 kilograms, especially those with extra weight near the middle of their bodies. Stomach sleepers who weigh less than 60 kilograms should enjoy better support, but some may still notice slight sagging near their midsections.

Customer Reviews

Since sleep preferences vary, mattress comfort is subjective. Customer reviews can give you a snapshot of how different individuals experience the same mattress, which might make it easier to anticipate whether or not you’ll find it comfortable.

We noticed a few common trends in owner feedback for the Recore Mattress. The sleepers who found the mattress most comfortable often say it improved the quality of their sleep. Many also praise the bed’s quality and value. Some note that they feel the bed sleeps cool. Additionally, reviews often report that the mattress arrived quickly and was easy to set up.

While most owners seem satisfied with their Recore Mattress, a few say that it felt softer or firmer than they expected. The firmness level is a common concern across all mattress models. Some owners also feel the bed retains more heat than ideal.
