OVERVIEW

US Mattress is a Michigan-based retailer that sells a large variety of mattresses, bedding, and furniture products online and at brick-and-mortar locations in the Detroit metro area. In addition to offering brands such as Serta, Sealy, and Tempur-Pedic, the company has its own line of mattresses called Renew.

Within the Renew lineup, US Mattress offers variations called Restored, Replenish, Invigorate, and Pleasant, providing shoppers with several choices of firmness levels, price-points, and profiles. US Mattress also manufactures the Sapphire Dream, a high-end hybrid with a medium soft feel.

We’ll take an in-depth look at the Renew Restored line, exploring their materials, performance, and value. We’ll also share how each mattress scored during our sleep lab testing so that you can determine which one is the best fit for you.

This model is available in two options that have differing firmness levels and profiles:

  • Choose the Renew Restored Mattress if… you’re a hot sleeper or you weigh over 130 pounds.
  • Choose the Renew Restored Pillow Top Mattress if… you weigh under 130 pounds or you prefer a very plush sleeping surface.

Renew Mattress Review Breakdown

The Renew by US Mattress Restored comes in two profiles, both of which are quite thick. The 16.5-inch model has a pillow-top in addition to three comfort layers, while the 15.25-inch version omits the pillow-top in favor of a firmer surface. The pillow-top option has a medium soft (4) feel, while the standard Renew Restored has a medium (5) firmness level.

The comfort systems of both models begin with 1 inch of Pillow Renew Foam, a proprietary polyfoam material that offers plenty of cushioning. Next is a 2-inch layer of gel-infused memory foam that contours your body to offer deep pressure relief without retaining too much heat. The pillow-top model completes the comfort system with a 4-inch layer of patented Cool Gel Renew Foam that further targets joint pain and pressure point discomfort.

Instead of using the same final comfort layer, the standard Renew model has a 1-inch layer of Medium Renew Foam and only 2 inches of Cool Gel Renew Foam. This combination creates a firmer surface that’s better suited to people over 130 pounds and those who prefer a less conforming feel.

Both models have the same pocketed coil support core that features 15.5-gauge coils. Each coil has its own fabric casing, which decreases motion transfer. The coils have foam reinforcement that wraps the perimeter to heighten edge support. A proprietary CoolTemp Fabric cover protects the mattress and is designed to promote temperature control.

Mattress Prices and Sizing

Hybrid mattresses have complex constructions that generally feature multiple types of materials with different manufacturing processes. Price-points for hybrid mattresses are often higher than all-foam or basic innerspring models because of their intricate designs. The Renew Restored Mattress’ price tag is on par with other luxury hybrid models, even if you opt for the more expensive pillow-top version.

Our product research found that this model has above-average durability, but it may be prone to breaking down faster than models that incorporate less foam.

The Renew by US Mattress is available in six sizes, ranging from twin to California king. Both the pillow-top and standard versions are taller than average and require deep pocket sheets. US Mattress also offers compatible bed frames, box springs, and adjustable bases that can be bundled with mattress purchases.

Mattress Performance

Motion Isolation

The Renew by US Mattress Restored has a thick foam comfort system that isolates motion well. The individually wrapped coils move independently rather than as a unit, decreasing bounce.

This model is a great fit for those who co-sleep with kids or couples who frequently wake each other up. Though both models are very good at isolating motion, the pillow-top’s extra 1.25 inches of cushioning gives it a slight edge over the standard model.

Pressure Relief

This model has plenty of memory foam — one of the best available materials for relieving pressure. Memory foam contours to the exact shape of your body, evenly dispersing your weight and absorbing impact.

Pressure relief is especially important for side sleepers. When side sleepers lie down, their weight rests largely in their shoulders and hips, which can get sore without adequate cushioning. The Renew Restored’s foam comfort system cradles these areas, preventing pressure points from developing and alleviating existing discomfort.

Pressure relief is also helpful for people with joint pain, as the foam contours to sensitive areas instead of pushing back against them.

Temperature Control

Pillow-top: 3/5, Standard: 4/5

Hybrid models tend to have above-average temperature control, and the Renew Restored Mattress is no exception. Air moves easily around the support core’s coils, keeping the mattress from absorbing too much heat. The mattress cover helps, too, as its fabric has a cool-to-the-touch design.

Memory foam retains more heat than most other mattress materials. However, the memory foam in the Renew Restored has gel infusions designed to keep you cool. The standard model is a better option for sleepers who run hot or individuals living in warm climates because it has less foam than the pillow-top version.

Edge Support

This model’s pocketed coil support core has enough structure to keep it from sagging at the edges. The foam encasement around the perimeter also helps the mattress maintain edge support.

However, people who sleep at the edge of the mattress might notice that they don’t get even support across the bed’s entire surface. Individuals who have a hard time getting in and out of bed may benefit from a mattress with more robust edge support.

Ease of Movement

The Renew Restored’s combination of pocketed coils and foam allow for good responsiveness that many sleepers enjoy, though it doesn’t have the bounce or resilient qualities that some innerspring and latex models provide.

Because the comfort system isolates motion so well, it also slightly inhibits it. Shoppers should consider whether they prefer a responsive or contouring feel. While both versions of the Renew Restored allow for fairly easy movement, the extra cushioning of the pillow-top model makes movement slightly more difficult.

Sex

When it comes to sex, most couples prefer a mattress with a blend of responsiveness and edge support. The Renew has above-average scores for both, though it doesn’t excel at either. Couples who want a mattress that’s more conducive to sex should consider a model with less foam and more bounce.

Off-Gassing

During the foam manufacturing process, chemical byproducts release in a process called off-gassing. By the time the mattress reaches your home, most of these chemicals have already dissipated. However, trace amounts still exist, and while they aren’t harmful, they may have an unpleasant odor.

The Renew Restored contains a significant amount of foam that has a noticeable smell once the mattress is unwrapped. After setting up the mattress, leave it for several hours to let it off-gas. People with respiratory problems and individuals who are sensitive to smell should unwrap their mattress in a well-ventilated area.

Sleeping Style and Body Weight

Side Sleepers:
The best mattress for a given individual depends largely on their body type and preferred sleeping position. Side sleepers are more prone to pressure points than any other sleeper type. The majority of their body weight rests on their hips and shoulders when they sleep. This can cause soreness and pressure points for sleepers who use a mattress without enough cushioning. The Renew Restored Mattress has a foam comfort system that successfully addresses these issues, making it an excellent choice for side sleepers.

The medium soft and medium firmness levels of the pillow-top and standard versions have a comfortable blend of contouring and support that is robust enough for people who weigh up to 230 pounds. People who weigh more than 230 pounds generally need stronger support to ensure they don’t sink into the mattress’ support core.

The standard model is the best bet for most side sleepers, since it provides deep compression that alleviates pressure-point discomfort but doesn’t lack support. However, side sleepers under 130 pounds who like a very plush surface may want to consider the pillow-top model.

Back Sleepers:
Back sleepers generally need a mattress that balances spinal support and pressure relief. A mattress that excels at one but not the other can be uncomfortable and unsupportive. The Renew Restored is a worthwhile choice for back sleepers weighing up to 230 pounds, especially for those who choose the standard model.

During our in-house tests, the pillow-top’s medium soft feel was a bit too plush for most back sleepers, who found that their midsections sank into the mattress. Testers who weigh under 130 pounds reported that the standard model is extremely comfortable, and those between 130 and 230 pounds also enjoyed its feel. Back sleepers on our testing team who weigh over 230 pounds found that this model did not keep their spine evenly aligned.

Stomach Sleepers:
Stomach sleepers need strong support to prevent aches and pains. A mattress that doesn’t have enough support can create a U-shape in their spines. The Renew Restored Mattress isn’t firm enough to prevent this from occurring in stomach sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds, though during our sleep trials testers under 130 pounds reported that they felt adequately supported.
