Should I buy an Eve Mattress?

Eve has worked hard on their mattresses to create a deservedly good reputation in the bed in a box industry. Their mattresses are particularly good at keeping sleepers cool at night and have little motion transfer, meaning that they’re ideal for couples sharing a bed or light sleepers. The mattresses are also particularly good for heavier sleepers.

Eve’s memory foam mattresses have more bounce and sinkage than some other brands, creating a slightly softer feel. Their hybrid mattresses are firmer and are particularly suited to those with back problems. Both styles of mattress work hard to provide body-conforming support, which helps to alleviate pressure and provide support. The hybrid mattresses are also ideal for those users who prefer the feel of traditional springs, with the springs adjusting to support the body.

As with all mattresses, Eve doesn’t suit everyone. Some sleepers report that the mattresses dip more than they would like and that the memory foam options in particular are too soft. For those sleepers, the hybrid mattresses will probably be a better option. Some users have also reported that the mattresses develop a ridge in the middle after about a year.

With much to recommend them, the Eve mattresses are definitely top contenders for those in the market for a new mattress. Our Eve mattress review will hopefully help you decide if they’re the ones for you!

Red Magazine are big fans of the Eve mattress, saying: The Eve mattress is incredibly supportive. I have a niggling lower back issue and find the memory foam is the perfect mix of mouldable but firm, meaning my back is supported in all the right places.

Red Magazine

Real Homes praised the Eve: If memory foam is your thing, then Eve is a very worthy contender in the competitive bed-in-a-box market. It is fairly priced and wins on temperature control and support, plus movement is a breeze.

Real Homes

The Independent included the Eve as one of its best mattresses of 2020: It feels like you're floating, and while at first we worried it might be a bit too soft and spongy, it only takes one night’s sleep to appreciate how supportive it is, especially around the hips and shoulders.

The Independent

The Evening Standard included the Eve in its best mattress list, saying: The foam is 30 times more breathable than the normal stuff, so you'll sleep at a pleasant temperature until your morning alarm wakes you.

Evening Standard

Bought the eve hybrid mattress a few weeks ago now and I can't believe the difference in my sleep and the fact that my back pain has almost entirely disappeared. Why didn't I get one sooner? The hybrid provides just the right combination of firmness and support to make a great night's sleep. I feel like a new man when I wake up in the mornings now! (July 2020)

Eve Customer

We had so many issues with getting a full nights sleep previously without waking up multiple times in the night, Eve has completely changed that! We absolutely love our new mattress and wish we bought it sooner, so comfy and worth every penny. (June 2020)

Eve Customer

Best mattress I’ve slept on and a brilliant company. The mattress itself is possibly the most comfortable one I’ve ever had. I have never slept so well! The customer service was great too, no complaints at all. The mattress turned up very quickly in very practical packaging. I would absolutely buy from this company again. (April 2020)

Eve Customer

Excellent new mattress, delivered promptly. Expensive but worth the investment for a good night’s kip. I’m a bit of a fidgeter but my wife is no longer disturbed by my moving about due to the solid design.(February 2020)

Eve Customer

I have suffered with back pain the last year and this has helped me massively! We went for the premium mattress and do not regret that decision, such a dream, we were sceptical as we thought it'd be too hot for us still but with the cooling layer it's great! (January 2020)

Eve Customer

Simply the best mattress we have had. My wife has had a bad back since being pregnant. We previously had a memory foam mattress that we had found much better than any sprung mattresses, but as it was reaching the end of its life my wife was waking up in pain from her back. So, after reading many reviews (like this) I settled on the eve mattress and have never been happier. (December 2019)

Eve Customer

Genuinely best sleep in years. I no longer wake up when my partner tosses and turns. If I go to bed before him, I don't notice him getting into bed late at night. He also doesn't wake up when I get up early. Really incredible! Highly recommended mattress. (October 2019)
