Based in Phoenix, Arizona, Zoma Sleep is a fairly new company that specializes in designing sleep products for athletes. In addition to the all-foam Zoma Mattress, they also sell the Zoma Hybrid – a model with a pocketed coil support system – as well as a pillow and a mattress foundation.

The Zoma memory foam mattress was designed to speed up muscle recovery after a workout. To this end, the bed features zoning, or different firmnesses across different parts of the surface, in the comfort layer that helps distribute body weight and alleviate pressure points. Standing at 12 inches tall, the mattress has 3 layers of foam and a medium feel that equates to a 5 out of 10 on our firmness scale.

Wondering if the Zoma Mattress could help you step up your game? We’ll take a close look at how the mattress is constructed, providing sleeper recommendations and other considerations along the way, to help you reach a decision.

Side Sleepers

Of all sleeper types, the Zoma is best-suited to side sleepers. The zoned comfort layer is ideally designed to relieve pressure points in the shoulders, which are a common issue when sleeping on the side. Meanwhile, the firmer foam in the midsection helps keep the hips in line with the rest of the body. On the whole, the mattress does a good job of conforming to the shape of the sleeper’s body and promoting healthy spinal alignment in most side sleepers.

In terms of body weight, side sleepers under 130 pounds benefit most from the mattress’s medium feel, while those between 130 and 230 pounds also receive enough support. By contrast, those who weigh more than 230 pounds may find the mattress too plush. Depending on where the individual carries more weight, this may cause uneven sagging that can negatively affect their spinal alignment.

Back Sleepers

Back sleepers who weigh less than 230 pounds should sleep comfortably on the Zoma mattress. Firmer foam in the middle third of the mattress helps fill in the lumbar area, and the polyfoam base supplies a stable surface to keep the spine aligned.

Due to its medium feel, the Zoma mattress may not succeed in maintaining spinal alignment in back sleepers over 230 pounds. These sleepers exert more pressure on the mattress and usually require the added support of an innerspring core. Despite the zoning in the Zoma mattress, these sleepers are likely to experience too much sagging in the hips. This can lead to lower back pain.

Stomach Sleepers

The Zoma mattress’s medium feel is well-suited to stomach sleepers under 130 pounds. For these individuals, the mattress is just firm enough to promote proper spinal alignment while reducing any pressure points that may crop up.

It’s a different story for those who weigh more than 130 pounds. Stomach sleepers generally need a firmer surface in the range of 7 to 8 on the firmness scale in order to avoid excessive sagging in the midsection. The Zoma mattress does have firmer foam in this section, but it’s not quite firm enough to support the hips and this may cause back and neck pain.

Mattress Performance

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.

Motion Isolation



The all-foam construction of the Zoma mattress helps cut down on disruptions when sharing the bed.

Memory foam is considered particularly adept at absorbing motion, and the Zoma mattress features memory foam in its top layer. However, this memory foam layer is relatively thin, and it is followed by a polyfoam layer with a bit more resilience. Accordingly, the Zoma mattress allows a little more motion transfer than other memory foam mattresses, especially when a partner is getting in and out of bed.

The Zoma isolates more motion than many other types of beds. Still, compared with other memory foam models, it may not be ideal for those who are particularly sensitive to movement.

Pressure Relief



Pressure relief is a key strength of the Zoma mattress, due in large part to the zoned comfort layer. The memory foam cushions the shoulders to prevent pressure points from forming. At the same time, the firmer foam in the midsection supports the lumbar area and helps prevent pressure build-up from improper spinal alignment.

Due to its medium feel, the mattress is best-suited to side and back sleepers under 230 pounds. Heavier individuals and stomach sleepers may find the mattress too plush, allowing sagging in heavier body parts that can compromise spinal support.

Temperature Control



The Zoma mattress ranks below-average for temperature control. This is typical of all-foam mattresses, as their solid construction allows little room for airflow.

Zoma has incorporated a breathable cover to let heat escape from the body. The ridged channels on the memory foam also allow some heat to dissipate, particularly in the top and bottom thirds of the mattress.

However, there’s only so much an all-foam mattress can do to maintain a neutral temperature. Hot sleepers may prefer a latex or hybrid model, or barring that, a foam mattress with a specific commitment to cooling technologies such as phase change material.

Edge Support



In spite of its all-foam construction, edge support is comparably strong in the Zoma mattress.

As a material designed to conform in response to heat and pressure, memory foam usually compresses significantly when pressure is applied around the edges. This is exacerbated by the fact that all-foam mattresses don’t benefit from the rigid support of an innerspring base layer.

While it doesn’t offer the stability of a hybrid or innerspring mattress, the Zoma mattress has just a thin layer of memory foam followed by firmer, more resistant polyfoam. As a result, the edges of the Zoma mattress hold up surprisingly well under pressure.

Most sleepers should be able to sleep near the edge of the mattress without feelings of roll-off. This is extra beneficial when sharing the bed with a partner, as it allows full use of the mattress. Individuals who weigh less than 130 pounds may even be able to sit comfortably on the edge of the bed.

Ease of Movement


Combination sleepers should find they are able to switch positions fairly easily on the Zoma mattress.

The mattress does hug the sleeper somewhat, especially in the softer areas under the shoulders and legs. This effect is more pronounced in those who weigh more than 230 pounds.

However, the mattress doesn’t have the extreme conforming or the slow response to pressure of a traditional memory foam mattress. The polyfoam transitional layer also contributes some resilience to prevent sleepers from feeling stuck in the bed.



Like any other foam mattress, the Zoma may give off a “new mattress” smell when it is first unboxed. This is a perfectly normal result of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) being released from the synthetic foams. It’s not harmful, and it shouldn’t last more than a day or two. Letting the mattress air out in a well-ventilated room can help speed the process along.

Zoma Mattress Review Breakdown

The Zoma mattress is constructed with 3 layers of foam and a stretchy polyester-spandex cover. The cover is designed to wick moisture away from the sleeper, and it is perforated with tiny holes to allow body heat to pass through. Zoma recommends spot-cleaning the cover when needed.

In total the mattress measures 12 inches thick, which is marginally thicker than the average all-foam mattress. The primary comfort layer consists of 2 inches of Triangulex zoned memory foam. This foam is quite low-density, meaning it doesn’t conform as closely. However, it has a quicker response to pressure and sleeps cooler than denser memory foam.

The Triangulex foam is designed with triangle-shaped cutouts that gives it a firmer feel in the middle third of the bed. The aim is to provide targeted pressure relief in the shoulders and added support in the lumbar area. The foam is open-cell, and the grooves in the surface of the foam provide extra room for airflow.

The second layer is made with 2 inches of Reactiv foam, which is slightly firmer. This layer forms a firm cradle that helps the sleeper transition to the support core. It also absorbs motion to reduce nighttime disruptions from a sleeping partner.

Below this is the high-density polyfoam support core. This layer is 7 inches tall and the foam is extremely firm compared to the other layers, forming a durable base that helps keep the spine on an even plane.

Overall, the Zoma Sleep Mattress has a firmness level rated as medium. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the firmest, this would equate to about a 5. That said, due to the zoned comfort layer, the mattress feels firmer in the midsection and softer in the shoulders and legs. Sleepers under 130 pounds experience light contouring, while heavier sleepers sink in further for a feel that is halfway between sleeping “in” and sleeping “on” the bed.

All of the foams used in the Zoma mattress are certified low in harmful emissions by CertiPUR-US. The mattress is made in the U.S.

Mattress Prices and Sizing

The Zoma mattress has a fairly low price-point for a mattress in its category. It’s a relatively new mattress, but based on our testing, we expect it to have a comparable lifespan to competing all-foam models. This makes it a good-value purchase for shoppers looking to invest in a quality mattress. Occasional discounts in the neighborhood of $100, or more during major holidays, may reduce the price even further.

The Zoma mattress is available in all the standard mattress sizes, as well as split king size.

Trial, Warranty, and Shipping Policies


The Zoma mattress is available for purchase on the Zoma website or through third-party retailers including Amazon, Wal-Mart, and Target. Shipping is free in the contiguous U.S., with an extra charge for orders in Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, and Mexico.


Zoma mattresses are shipped for free to the contiguous U.S. via FedEx curbside shipping. Customers in Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, or other international destinations should contact Zoma directly for shipping rates.

Mattresses are usually shipped within 3 to 5 days of order placement, and they take another 1 to 5 business days to arrive at your home. Customers don’t typically need to sign for mattress delivery but Zoma may require a signature for orders that include an adjustable bed.

As with many mattresses sold online, the Zoma is shrink-wrapped and compressed. To set it up, place it on the foundation, remove the box and plastic, and let it expand. Mattresses can usually be slept on after 4 to 6 hours, but the foam may take a day or two to reach its full size.

Additional Services

Zoma currently does not offer White Glove delivery or old mattress removal.

Sleep Trial

Zoma Sleep offers a 100-night sleep trial during which customers can return the mattress for a full refund if they are not satisfied. This sleep trial also extends to customers who purchased the mattress in a brick-and-mortar store.

Zoma asks that customers allow 30 nights for their body to adjust to the feel of the new mattress before reaching a decision. In the event of a return between the 30th and 100th night, the company arranges for free pick-up of the mattress. There is no need to keep the box. Where possible, the mattress will be either donated or recycled.


The Zoma mattress is backed by a 10-year non-prorated warranty against workmanship and structural defects. Mattresses that are deemed defective during this time will be repaired or replaced at Zoma’s discretion.

The warranty covers visible indentations of at least 0.75 inch, unless these result from use with an improper foundation or platform. Issues not covered by the warranty include normal increases in softness or decrease in the recovery characteristics, as these do not affect its pressure-relieving qualities.

The warranty shall be void in the event that the mattress is damaged, burned, physically abused, saturated with moisture, torn, cut, or in an unsanitary condition.

Zoma stipulates that the mattress must be used on a solid foundation or platform. If used with a box spring, sleepers should put a piece of 0.75-inch thick moisture-resistant plywood over top. Slatted bases should have slats no further than 3 inches apart. Customers will be asked to provide proof that they have used the mattress with a suitable foundation to qualify for warranty coverage.

Only original purchasers are eligible for warranty coverage. Claims should be submitted to the original dealer, along with proof of purchase. Additional terms may apply.
