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 at least 130 pounds. If you’re looking for a softer 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 owner reviews and 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.
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.

Although the price of the Rivet Mattress has frequently fluctuated, it has consistently remained below-average compared to other mixed-foam mattresses. The average all-foam model costs between $900 and $1,200 in a queen size.
The price may be lower for certain shoppers, such as those with an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card. Additionally, Amazon Prime members qualify for free expedited ground shipping. Standard ground shipping is available for all customers; per Amazon’s policy, shipping is free for all orders of at least $25 worth of qualifying items.
The following table lists prices for the Rivet Mattress in each available size. Please note that twin, twin XL, and California king sizes are not offered for this mattress.

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.
Due to its medium firm feel and responsive-yet-contouring mixed-foam design, the Rivet Mattress offers excellent pressure relief for back and stomach sleepers, particularly those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds. Side sleepers may also feel less pressure on the mattress, but for many the LURAcor comfort layer won’t conform closely enough to ensure even spinal alignment.
How well a mattress alleviates pressure depends on both the bed’s construction and the sleeper. For most people, the best mattresses for pressure relief will contour to the body and support the spine while maintaining a flat, even surface with minimal sinkage. If the surface feels too stiff, then you’ll likely feel more pressure in the shoulders and hips – especially if you sleep on your side. If the mattress is too soft, then you may sink to an excessive extent and develop aches and pains in the neck, shoulders, and lower back.
Sleeping hot is a common issue for people who own all-foam beds. The Rivet Mattress may be problematic for some, but its LURAcor foam comfort layer is fairly breathable and shouldn’t absorb too much body heat. The bed’s medium firm and responsive feel may also help you sleep cool if you weigh 230 pounds or less. The Celliant textile cover is also intended to regulate your temperature and help you sleep cool. However, this is not always the case and some owners claim to feel minimal effects from the Celliant fabric.
Polyfoam usually sleeps a bit cooler than memory foam, so mixed-foam mattresses tend to offer decent temperature neutrality. Firmer, more responsive models like the Rivet Mattress often lead the pack thanks to the combination of breathable comfort materials and adequate airflow on the surface. However, those who sleep exceptionally hot may want to avoid foam mattresses altogether; innersprings, hybrids, and latex beds all sleep much cooler on average.
When seated along the edges of the Rivet Mattress, you may notice some unevenness but the mattress shouldn’t sink too much. The responsive LURAcor comfort layer delivers more bounce-back than softer memory foam and polyfoam materials, and the bed’s medium firm feel prevents deep sinkage. As a result, getting on and off the mattress should be relatively painless, and most people weighing 230 pounds or less should feel comfortable and secure sleeping near the edges of the bed.
Many all-foam mattresses underperform in this category because polyfoam – even the high-density foam found in base layers – does not withstand long-term compression very well. Over time, perimeter sinkage often becomes more excessive. The Rivet Mattress may offer above-average edge support at first, but you’ll probably notice more sinkage after sleeping on the mattress for a few years. Rotating the mattress head-to-foot every six months may help preserve the perimeter to an extent.
Thanks to a responsive comfort layer and medium firm feel, the Rivet Mattress doesn’t sink excessively for most folks weighing up to 230 pounds. This makes getting on and off the bed and moving across the surface fairly easy. On softer foam beds, deep sinkage can make you feel as though you are trapped in the mattress. We don’t foresee that issue with the Rivet Mattress – provided you don’t weigh more than 230 pounds.
If you do, then you may have more trouble moving across the Rivet Mattress. All-foam beds are particularly susceptible to movement issues related to sinkage, and this even applies to medium firm and firm models. Those who weigh more than 230 pounds may feel more comfortable on an innerspring or hybrid with a more robust support core, or possibly a foam bed with at least one zoned layer to promote enhanced support for the entire body.
For many couples, the Rivet Mattress will be an ideal mattress for sex. The responsive LURAcor foam allows you to move around freely without sinking too much, but the material conforms closely and provides enough traction to ensure comfortable, controlled movements. Edge support may be an issue if you and/or your partner weigh more than 230 pounds, so you may not feel entirely comfortable near the perimeter, but those weighing 230 pounds or less should be able to use the entire surface without losing stability.
The Rivet Mattress is completely silent, as well, so you’ll be able to use it discreetly without disturbing anyone in the next room. Those who prefer innersprings or hybrids for sex may not find this model bouncy enough, but otherwise the Rivet Mattress is perfectly suitable for amorous activities and outperforms many of its all-foam competitors in this category.
The Rivet Mattress will produce a noticeable amount of off-gassing odor after you remove it from the shipping box. This is perfectly normal, and should be expected of any mattress with foam layers. However, the smells may take a long time to fully dissipate. Some owners claim to detect off-gassing odor more than one week after unboxing their Rivet Mattress. While most all-foam beds emit off-gassing at first, the smells associated with this model appear to be stronger and more persistent than usual. This can be attributed to its inner components, which do not promote much airflow and do little to flush out bothersome odor.
To help the Rivet Mattress air out, we suggest placing it in a well-ventilated room for a couple of days before sleeping on it. This may mitigate the odor issue to some extent. However, those with particularly sensitive nostrils may have a tough time getting used to this mattress.
Side Sleepers: 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 130 pounds will probably find the mattress a bit too firm for their liking. These individuals typically need a soft or medium soft mattress to cushion and conform to the body in order to experience even spinal alignment. Side sleepers who weigh at least 130 pounds should feel more comfortable on the mattress – however, they likely won’t feel the deep body hug that some side sleepers prefer.
Back Sleepers: 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 across different weight groups find the Rivet Mattress reasonably supportive. We expect back sleepers weighing between 130 and 230 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. Some back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds may consider the Rivet Mattress too firm. On the other hand, 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.
Stomach Sleepers: 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 between 130 and 230 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 firm for stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. However, they won’t sink too much beneath the surface – a common issue associated with stomach sleeping. Those who weigh more than 230 pounds may feel more sinkage, but again, not to an excessive extent.

On Amazon’s product page for the Rivet Mattress, ratings among customers and owners are generally favorable. The general consensus among reviewers is that the mattress provides an ideal balance of softness and firmness. The result for many is less pressure and back pain. Temperature control is another bright spot for owners. Some note distinct improvements in breathability and cooling over other all-foam beds. A few reviews also give a quick shoutout to Amazon’s customer service team.
For those who have left one- and two-star reviews, added neck, shoulder, and back pain appears to be one of the central issues. Strong off-gassing is another complaint from some (though other reviewers say the mattress produces very little odor). Lastly, a few reviewers claim the mattress is too thin to provide proper support. Amazon’s customer service receives a few complaints, as well.
You’ll find a handful of reviews near the bottom of each Amazon product page, but you’ll need to click through to a dedicated review section to read each one. You can filter the results by star rating, date, and reviews with videos or photos. Another helpful feature: you can exclusively select reviews from “verified purchases.”
