Octave is a mattress brand from GoodMorning.com, a Canadian company known for its mattress-in-a-box models. In addition to selling several mattresses, Octave also offers bed frames and bedding products.
The Octave Vista Mattress is a memory foam model with a medium firm (6) feel and a 12-inch profile. This budget-friendly option incorporates materials designed for cooling and a zoned core for targeted support and pressure relief.
Octave offers two other mattresses that are medium firm with foam-based designs. However, those models have higher profiles and additional layers. The Octave Mirage measures 13 inches, incorporating a layer of latex for enhanced bounce and cooling. The Octave Horizon adds a latex layer and an extra layer of gel-infused foam, totaling 14 inches thick.
We’ll highlight what makes the Octave Vista Mattress unique, including its construction, pricing, and overall performance in our test lab.
Most side sleepers should find the Octave Vista Mattress comfortable. The 2-inch memory foam comfort layer hugs the hips and shoulders closely, relieving pressure buildup. The polyfoam layer underneath adds to the cradling, while the high-density polyfoam core reinforces support for the lumbar area. The zoned design of the support core enhances contouring under the shoulders and adds extra support under the hips. This helps relieve pressure while still promoting good posture.
Side sleepers on our testing team who weigh over 130 pounds gave high marks to the Octave Vista’s supportive yet conforming design. They reported comfortable spinal alignment and experienced very little pressure buildup around their hips and shoulders. Because testers under 130 pounds didn’t sink in as deeply, they noted slight pressure buildup around these sensitive areas, but not enough to cause much discomfort.
The Octave Vista is well suited to back sleepers of all body types, particularly those under 230 pounds. The foam layers mold to the spine and hips to avoid pressure buildup. Meanwhile, the zoned core ensures extra support around the lower back to keep it from sagging excessively.
Our back sleepers under 230 pounds reported feeling well supported. They noted that they received ample pressure relief and felt little to no lumbar discomfort. Those over 230 pounds said their hips sank in more than they would have preferred.
Stomach sleepers typically need extra support from their mattress, so the Octave Vista’s all-foam design is too soft for many who use this sleep position. That said, the polyfoam comfort layer and zoned polyfoam support core make the surface more responsive and comfortable for some stomach sleepers.
Our stomach sleepers under 130 pounds were impressed by the Vista’s medium firm feel and zoned support. These testers did not sink into the bed as deeply as those in heavier weight categories, so they received strong support despite the cushioned foam surface. Those between 130 and 230 pounds gave average marks for comfort but said they would have benefited from more support for their midsection. Testers over 230 pounds sank too deeply, putting strain on the lower back.
In addition to the hands-on feedback from our team, we conduct a number of quantitative tests in our Test Lab. The below ratings are based on the experience of our testers.

The Octave Vista is an all-foam, medium firm mattress with a 12-inch profile. Both the firmness and thickness fall in the range preferred by many sleepers.
The top comfort layer contains 2 inches of conforming memory foam, which evenly distributes body weight to limit pressure buildup. A copper infusion is designed to draw heat away from the body. The memory foam also contains an infusion of phase change material that’s engineered to regulate temperature. A secondary 2-inch polyfoam comfort layer enhances contouring while also giving the bed a slightly responsive feel.
The support core is composed of an 8-inch high-density polyfoam layer that bolsters the entire mattress. It’s divided into five firmness zones to provide greater cushioning beneath heavier areas of the body like the midsection. In addition, air channels in the core allow air to circulate so that heat can dissipate.
A polyester cover encases the mattress. The material incorporates proprietary fibers engineered for cooling. The cover is removable and machine-washable for easy cleaning.
The fabric and foams in the Octave Vista Mattress carry OEKO-TEX Standard 100 and CertiPUR-US certifications, respectively, to show they’ve met established standards for safe materials.

Mattress Prices and Sizing
The Octave Vista Mattress is priced below average for an all-foam mattress. We consider this model to be a good value since it incorporates some advanced features that aren’t common in mattresses at this price-point, such as gel-infused memory foam, phase change material, proprietary cooling fibers, and a zoned support core. Additionally, Octave often includes free sleep accessories with mattress purchases.
In addition to the six standard sizes, the Octave Vista Mattress also comes in a split king size.

Trial, Warranty, and Shipping Policies
Octave is a Canadian mattress brand and its mattresses ship exclusively to addresses in Canada. The Vista is available for purchase through the Octave website.
The Octave Vista Mattress ships for free to most Canadian addresses, but a shipping fee may apply for deliveries to some remote areas.
Each Vista Mattress arrives at the customer’s door compressed, rolled, and packed in a box. The mattress should be unpacked within two weeks of delivery to prevent voiding the warranty. Once unboxed, it may take up to 24 hours to reach the intended firmness.
Octave does not offer White Glove delivery or old mattress removal.
The Octave Vista comes with a 365-night sleep trial. A 21-night break-in period is required. Between days 21 and 365, owners can return the mattress for a full refund of the purchase price.
In order to initiate a return, customers must first submit photos to Octave. Upon confirming eligibility, the company will send someone to pick up the unwanted mattress. The owner is responsible for wrapping it in plastic and moving it to the front door. Octave donates returned mattresses to charities when possible.
Note that the company does not accept returns of damaged mattresses. While the trial policy does not require the use of a mattress protector, it is advisable.
The Octave Vista Mattress comes with a partially prorated 15-year limited warranty. This policy offers mattress repair or replacement if a qualifying defect arises, such as a visible indentation over 2 inches deep, a physical flaw, or a manufacturing defect.
Between years 1 and 10, the company covers the full cost of repair or replacement if it confirms the mattress is defective. For the remainder of the warranty period, the company pays 75% of the associated costs. Shipping and handling expenses incurred by the owner are nonrefundable.
This warranty only applies to the original purchaser, and it does not cover damage due to abuse or misuse. It also doesn’t cover commercial use unless the purchase was made by a commercial customer. Mattresses must be unpacked within two weeks of receipt to qualify for coverage.
