Yogasleep, a company with more than 50 years of experience, began with the Marpac Dohm sound machine. The company has since expanded its product line to include diffusers, sleep accessories, bedding, and mattresses. It offers two mattress models: the Yogabed mattress and the Unplug mattress.
The Yogabed mattress, which we focus on in this comprehensive review, has a unique multi-layer foam construction that responds to pressure and isolates motion. The mattress utilizes Instant Response YogaFoam in its comfort system. This proprietary foam blend has a conforming feel like memory foam, but it is more buoyant and breathable. The mattress has a zip-off cover that is easy to clean.
We’ll cover the construction, pricing, and performance of the Yogabed mattress. We’ll also break down verified customer feedback, and make recommendations for sleepers based on sleeping position and body type.
|Sleeper Type||Under 130 lbs||130-230 lbs||Above 230 lbs|
Side Sleepers: Side sleepers need a mattress that cushions the shoulders and hips. This reduces the likelihood of pressure points developing. It also keeps the spine aligned. The Yogabed mattress has a medium firm rating, which makes it less than ideal for most side sleepers.
Most side sleepers who weigh less than 230 pounds will experience great conforming on the Yogabed mattress, but there is still a chance pressure could build at the shoulders and hips. Sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds especially tend to need a softer mattress in order to experience a conforming feel and pressure relief
Those who weigh more than 230 pounds may find they sink into the mattress too deeply. This prevents the spine from being properly aligned. Many sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds prefer a firm mattress.
Back Sleepers: Back sleepers maintain a neutral posture as they sleep, but benefit from a conforming mattress. This fills the gap beneath their lower back and supports the lumbar region. The Yogabed mattress is best for back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. The mattress conforms enough to support the lower back and keep the spine aligned. The supportive foam core prevents sinking in too deeply.
Those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds will likely benefit from the conforming comfort system of the Yogabed. The medium firm rating and responsive foam layers provide fair support for back sleepers in this weight category.
Back sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds may need more support than the Yogabed provides. There is the possibility that they will sink into the mattress too deeply, which can lead to spinal misalignment.
Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleepers need a mattress that is firm enough to keep their hips from sinking in. This reduces pressure on the lower back and keeps the spine aligned. The Yogabed mattress is beneficial for stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. The responsive foam cushions the chest and shoulders while supporting the hips.
The Yogabed mattress offers fair support for stomach sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds. There is the possibility of the hips pressing in too much, but the mattress offers comfort for the shoulders and chest.
Stomach sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds will also find the Yogabed mattress offers fair support. Most prefer a firm mattress instead, as this keeps the hips and abdomen lifted.
The Yogabed mattress has an all-foam construction with layers of polyfoam and memory foam. The foams allow for even weight distribution and pressure relief. The mattress has a zipper cover.
The Yogabed mattress cover is made of Thermocool high-performance fabric, which incorporates smart fiber cross sections to help regulate temperature. The cover resists allergens, including dust mites. The top of the cover can be removed and machine washed.
Beneath the cover is a one-inch comfort layer of Instant Response YogaFoam that is ventilated to promote airflow. This layer is responsive and cushions pressure points. It also absorbs movement and prevents sleep disturbances for those who share the bed.
The second layer of the Yogabed mattress is two inches of ventilated gel-infused memory foam. The conductive gel in this layer draws heat away from the body. This layer offers deep compression support and prevents sinking into the mattress too deeply.
The support core of the Yogabed mattress includes five inches of YogaCore foam and two inches of support foam. The YogaCore base is more breathable than traditional polyfoam. The support foam increases the durability of the mattress and reinforces the layers above.
The Yogabed mattress has a medium firm (6) rating on the 1-10 firmness scale. It balances the softness of memory foam with firm support. The mattress conforms to the shape of the body to cushion pressure points while keeping the spine aligned. This firmness is beneficial for a range of sleeping positions and body types.
The Yogabed mattress has four layers of foam with a washable cover.
Thermocool high-performance fabric
Memory foam (gel-infused)
