Motion isolation refers to a bed’s ability to absorb movement from sleepers and prevent it from spreading across the surface. Although the LURAcor foam comfort layer is fairly responsive, the Rivet Mattress isolates motion very well thanks in part to the memory foam transitional layer. You probably won’t feel much motion transfer whenever your partner changes positions or gets in and out of bed, which can cut down on nightly sleep disruptions. The bed is also completely silent when bearing weight.
That said, the Rivet Mattress has a medium firm feel, and may not prevent motion transfer as effectively as a softer all-foam model. Most will sleep soundly on the Rivet Mattress, but if you’re hyper-sensitive to movement at night, you may want to opt for a softer memory foam mattress instead.

Pros & Cons:
Founded as Cadabra in 1994, Amazon.com – Amazon for short – is a massive online marketplace where shoppers can purchase a wide range of products from different brands and private sellers. Amazon also sells items under its own product banner. This review will take an in-depth look at the Amazon Rivet Mattress, one of the brand’s exclusive models.
The Rivet is constructed with a comfort layer of LURAcor foam over a memory foam transitional layer. The LURAcor foam adds a latex-like bounciness to the surface, while the memory foam offers even body-conforming and weight distribution. The Rivet Mattress also contains a support core of high-density polyfoam. The cover is made from Celliant textile, a fabric intended to increase thermoregulation and promote muscle recovery by converting your body heat into infrared energy. Altogether, the mattress measures 10 inches thick. It is considered medium firm, or a 6 on the 1-10 firmness scale.
Due to its medium firm feel and moderate contouring, the Rivet Mattress is best suited to sleepers who weigh less than 230 pounds. If you’re looking for a softer mattress, firmer mattress, or a bed made with different components, Amazon offers other exclusive models including the Revel Custom Cool memory foam mattress and a handful of mattresses in the AmazonBasics series.
Our Amazon Rivet Mattress review includes construction and material specs, prices and sizes, and performance ratings based on our own product testing. We’ll also share a few pros and cons and take a closer look at Amazon’s shipping, return, and warranty policies.
Sleeping Style and Body Weight
For most side sleepers, the most comfortable mattress will cushion the shoulders and hips while supporting the lower back. This helps to align the spine and alleviate pressure points throughout the body. Like other all-foam models, the Rivet Mattress will conform more closely than other mattress types. However, the LURAcor foam does not hug the body quite like adaptive polyfoam or memory foam, and the surface has a medium firm feel. This makes the Rivet Mattress well-suited for some side sleepers and less so for others.
Side sleepers weighing less than 230 pounds should feel a blend of cushioning and support that will allow them to experience even spinal alignment. That being said, they likely won’t feel the deep body hug that some side sleepers prefer. Sleepers over 230 pounds may sink too far into the mattress to feel comfortably supported and may want to opt for a model with a firmer feel.
Compared to side sleepers, back sleepers generally need a firmer and more supportive mattress because sleeping on the back promotes spinal alignment on its own. More reinforcement allows back sleepers to lie comfortably without sinking too much beneath the lower back and hips, where people often carry most of their weight.
Our findings indicate most back sleepers can find the Rivet Mattress reasonably supportive, though we expect back sleepers weighing below 130 pounds to feel most comfortable on this mattress. They’ll feel enough conforming to alleviate pressure and discomfort, but their bodies will remain on a fairly even plane. Back sleepers over 130 pounds will still receive adequate support from the Rivet Mattress, though they may prefer a mattress with a firmer surface. Some back sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds may sink too much and develop aches and pains in the neck, shoulders, and lumbar region.
Like back sleepers, stomach sleepers often require a supportive mattress that resists deep sinking and maintains a supportive surface. At the same time, stomach sleepers tend to be more comfortable if the surface has some plushness. Without it, the mattress may feel too stiff and add pressure to the body.
The Rivet Mattress is best suited to stomach sleepers that weigh under 130 pounds. The medium firm feel and gentle contouring should ensure the right balance of pressure relief, responsiveness, and support.
The mattress may feel a little too soft for stomach sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds. These sleepers, especially those who weigh more than 230 pounds may feel more sinkage and struggle with maintaining proper spinal alignment.
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.

Rivet Mattress Review Breakdown
The Amazon Rivet Mattress begins with a 2-inch comfort layer of LURAcor foam, which has a bouncy feel that is very comparable to latex. You’ll experience noticeable body-contouring from the foam, but it is firm and responsive enough to keep your body on an even plane without sinking too much. This ensures good overall support for people who weigh 130 pounds or more. The foam is also fairly breathable compared to the memory foam and polyfoam layers found in other beds, so the Rivet Mattress shouldn’t absorb and trap too much body heat.
The bed also contains a 2-inch memory foam transitional layer. This component prevents you from sinking too deeply into the mattress and coming into contact with the base materials, which feel much denser and stiffer by comparison. The memory foam also provides noticeable contouring, which you’ll feel as the top LURAcor layer adapts to your body. Many describe this balance of conforming and responsiveness as simultaneously “sleeping in” and “sleeping on” the mattress.
Lastly, the Rivet Mattress has a 6-inch base layer composed of high-density polyfoam. This material promotes stability and support for the entire mattress which, along with the transitional layer, helps to maintain an even plane for your body. However, the foam provides minimal reinforcement to the perimeter of the mattress. As a result, you’ll probably notice deep sinkage when getting on and off the bed. Additionally, you may not feel secure sleeping near the edges, especially if you weigh more than 230 pounds.
A standout feature of the Rivet Mattress is its cover made from Celliant fabric. This material is engineered to retain heat from your body, convert it to infrared energy, and transmit this energy into your skin. This process can regulate your temperature, improve blood flow, and aid with muscle recovery after strenuous workouts and activities. Some sleepers swear by Celliant fabric, while others notice little of the textile’s intended effects.
The Rivet Mattress measures 10 inches thick, making it a medium-profile model.
