With multiple international awards and thousands of raving reviews, it’s no surprise that the Emma Comfort reigns as our list’s number 1. See how it competes with other mattresses in the market!
Boasting adjustable firmness, a waterproof protective layer and a longer than average warranty length the Ecosa mattress presents a strong argument for its case as top mattress in a box, but let’s see how well all these bells and whistles fare in actual practice?
Choosing the right mattress can be a challenging decision, especially when faced with options like Emma Comfort Mattress and Ecosa Mattress. Both brands offer unique features that make the decision even more difficult but Emma emerges as the recommended choice for several reasons. If you’re looking for a tried-and-tested mattress that will give you cloud-like comfort, excellent motion isolation and more without breaking the bank — then Emma’s the one for you. With more awards and reviews than the Koala Mattress, the Emma Comfort is definitely made for all types of sleepers, as evidenced by its 5-star reviews from ProductReview.com.au.
The German-made Emma and China-assembled Ecosa mattress have a similar construction build with three foam layers, one of which features ergonomic grooves to allow for improved pressure-relief. So while comfort and support are generally fulfilled, there was a noticeable difference in terms of breathability. The Ecosa mattress felt like it retained more heat than was comfortable during the night, a possible pitfall of its otherwise practical waterproof layer (also helps to protect against dust-mites).
While the possibility of rearranging the Ecosa mattress’ layers to suit your own preference is enticing, the execution of the feat is not as easy as one would have liked. In our experience, the process takes at least two people to manage and the way the first two top layers are encased in a single sock instead of separate foam layers seems to discourage reconfiguration. Given that, it might suggest there is an ideal arrangement to the foam layers and that customisation albeit possible comes at the expense of reaping the benefits of its original construction build. Another thing to note was that motion isolation in Ecosa was most effective in the firm configuration and not as good in other firmness options.
The 15 year warranty is without a doubt an advantage but practically speaking keeping your mattress for 15 years might not be ideal. You’ll probably want to replace it before then as the integrity of the foam depreciates over time. Since defects due to normal wear and tear are not covered under warranty, it’s important to take into consideration whether manufacturing defects or normal wear and tear are likely to catch up to you first past the 10 year mark (average mattress lifespan) when deciding on the value of a 15 year warranty.
Like Koala, Ecosa also offers same-day delivery and so undeniably surpasses Emma in this regard. So if speed of delivery is of high importance, you would be better of with one of them than an Emma.
Overall, the Emma mattress has proven itself to be a worthy investment despite this and definitely worth considering as your top choice. It has passed international technical testing, proven its quality with its practical features (machine-washable cover layer and handles) and offers great 7-zoned support on top of a reasonable price tag!
