The Novosbed Mattress comes in three firmness options, which the company labels as “Soft,” “Medium,” and “Firm.” Coming in around a 4 on the 10-point firmness scale, the Soft option could be described as medium soft. The Medium version rates around 6, giving it a medium firm feel. Rating at a 7, the Firm Novosbed Mattress is truly firm.
Each Novosbed Mattress consists of three layers of foam. The comfort layer is next-generation memory foam. Like standard memory foam, it conforms to the body to redistribute the sleeper’s weight and reduce pressure buildup. However, it is engineered for greater breathability than most memory foam to keep the sleep surface cooler. A memory foam transition layer separates the comfort layer from the support core while contouring more deeply to the sleeper’s curves. The polyfoam core adds to the bed’s support and durability.
The Novosbed Mattress is encased in a soft-to-the-touch, stretchy knit Tencel top cover. This material is breathable and moisture-wicking to promote a cool, dry sleep surface. The top cover can also be unzipped and washed in a machine for easy cleaning. A two-way stretch elastic cover gives an extra layer of protection to the foam core. Furniture-grade upholstery siding adds durability and support.
The Novosbed Mattress contains a memory foam comfort layer, a memory foam transition layer, and a polyfoam support core. A Tencel cover encases the bed.
Transition Memory Foam
The Novosbed Mattress is in line with the average price for an all-foam model. While the company doesn’t offer promotions as frequently as some of its competitors, the Novosbed is already competitively priced. It comes in the six standard mattress sizes.

Side sleepers usually have the sharpest pressure points of any of the sleep positions. This occurs because the hips and shoulders tend to be wider than the rest of the body, putting more force on the mattress. To reduce pressure buildup, side sleepers typically need a mattress that contours to their curves to redistribute their body weight. The Novosbed uses memory foam in its comfort and transition layers, giving a close hug that can provide notable pressure relief for side sleepers.
Which firmness feel is best for a side sleeper will depend largely on their weight. Those who weigh less than 60 kilograms are likely to enjoy superior contouring and pressure relief from the Soft option. Side sleepers who weigh between 60 and 105 kilograms should sink in about the right amount for pressure relief and support on the Medium version. Individuals who weigh over 105 kilograms may be better served by the Firm option since it is likely to balance contouring and support for most individuals in this weight group.
When a side sleeper rests on a mattress that is too soft for them, their hips and shoulders could sag too deeply into the bed, putting the spine out of alignment. If the mattress is too firm, they may experience more pressure buildup around their hips and shoulders.
The main concern for most back sleepers is getting the support they need to maintain their natural spinal alignment. However, they frequently prefer a mattress with enough give to let their hips sink in just a bit. The Novosbed’s memory foam comfort layer gently cradles a back sleeper’s hips. Its memory foam transition layer gives deeper contouring while limiting sinkage.
Back sleepers who weigh less than 60 kilograms may prefer the Soft option of the Novosbed for a bit more cushioning and cradling. The Medium version can accommodate back sleepers from all weight groups, so it might appeal to couples. The Firm version will likely give the best support for back sleepers who weigh more than 60 kilograms.
Selecting the right firmness can help a back sleeper better maintain their spinal alignment. A mattress that is too firm for the sleeper’s body type may not allow their hips to sink in much, so their alignment may not be ideal. If the mattress is too soft, a back sleeper’s hips may sink in too deeply and put a strain on their lumbar area.
Stomach sleeping typically causes the most back and neck strain of any sleep position, but a properly supportive mattress can help limit discomfort. The middle of the body usually carries much of the body’s weight. When you lie on your stomach, this weight can pull your midsection into the mattress and put the spine out of alignment. Stomach sleepers often need a firmer, more supportive mattress to prevent this. The Novosbed’s memory foam comfort and transition layers contour and cushion while limiting sinkage, making it a good option for stomach sleepers.
Most stomach sleepers will likely prefer the Firm version of the Novosbed. This firmness option cushions the sleeper without much sagging, so those who weigh more than 60 kilograms should get the support they need for good spinal alignment. Stomach sleepers who weigh under 60 kilograms may prefer the plusher feel of the Soft version of the Novosbed, and it’s likely to be supportive enough for most individuals in this weight group.
If a stomach sleeper’s mattress is too soft for them, they may experience spinal strain caused by their hips and belly pulling their midsection down into the mattress. A mattress that is too firm may feel hard against the front of a stomach sleeper’s body, and it may not relieve as much pressure as they’d like.
