Our recommended UK mattress alternatives
The Emma One is no longer available in the UK.
We have listed some of our recommended mattress alternatives below.
These are all firm mattresses that rank similarly to the Emma One.
Good firm mattress alternatives:
Emma One mattress composition
The Emma One is a mattress made up of three different layers of foam.
These three foam layers are:
- Breathable Airgocell foam
- Pressure-relieving viscoelastic memory foam
- Supportive HRX foam
Emma One mattress foam layers
The two upper layers are intended to provide a comfortable and cuddly feel when lying down.
1. Airgocell foam layer
Airgocell has excellent point-elasticity, allowing one area to compress without affecting the rest of the mattress.
This is great if you’re sharing the mattress with a partner. 👩❤️👨
2. Memory foam layer
Memory foam distributes pressure evenly and adapts well to the contours of your body, allowing you to melt into the mattress. 🤗
The interplay of the cooler Airgocell foam and the heat-retaining memory foam ensures that the temperature within the mattress remains well-regulated.
The so-called ventilation channels that have been integrated into the mattress further ensure good ventilation.
Air can circulate better, allowing the mattress to remain cooler. ❄️
This makes your overall sleep more comfortable and also prevents the build-up of mites and bacteria, which prefer warmer and more humid homes.
3. HRX foam base layer
The majority of the mattress is made up of the third later of HRX foam.
This is a firm cold foam bottom layer that offers support and stability for your entire body.
Appropriate incisions in the shoulder and pelvic areas allow the mattress to adapt to your body optimally.
How comfortable is the Emma One?
The Emma One is an exceptionally comfortable mattress, no matter which sleeping position you prefer.
Interestingly, both lighter-weight and heavier-weight people find the Emma One comfortable and supportive, despite its firmness.
This is because the foams used in the Emma One mattress adapt perfectly to the body. 🤗
You sink into the mattress in exactly the right places so that your spine is well-supported and your muscles can relax accordingly.
That said, it is best suited to those who prefer a firm sleeping surface.
The firm support also makes it a great choice for heavier-weight people.
If you're looking for a memory foam mattress with a similar feel, we'd suggest you try the Nectar mattress as the next-best alternative.
Luckily, the Nectar mattress is still available in the UK.
It also comes with a 365-day trial period and a lifetime guarantee!
Is the Emma One mattress suitable for couples?
Yes, the Emma One mattress is an excellent choice for couples.
This is not only because it is exceptionally comfortable but also because it is so well-suited to both lighter- and heavier-weight individuals.
This means that two partners of varying body weights will find the mattress equally comfortable.
Easy to move on
It is also very easy to move on.
Usually, memory foam mattresses can be quite challenging to move on due to the memory effect.
But since the Emma One is not a pure memory foam mattress, changing position from one side to the other is quite easy. 🕺
You'll find a similar feeling on the Nectar memory foam mattress, which has a more stable top layer.
Low motion transfer
Another excellent property is its low motion transfer.
Motion transfer refers to the degree to which movement is carried through a mattress.
A mattress with low motion transfer effectively absorbs movements so that they won't be carried through the mattress. 💃
This means that you won’t be disturbed by your partner tossing and turning or getting up in the middle of the night.
Emma One delivery & trial
Like all Emma products, the Emma One mattress will be delivered to your front door free of charge.
The mattress is rolled up and vacuum-packed and will be delivered in a compact box. 📦
Once unpacked, the mattress will slowly inflate and return to its original size.
You will notice a bit of an odour when first unpacking the Emma One mattress.
But this is not unusual.
Indeed, off-gassing is a normal feature of new mattresses and is not toxic or harmful in any way.
That said, it can be a little uncomfortable.
We recommend that you unpack your mattress in a well-ventilated room and let it breathe for a bit. 🏡
The smell should disappear quite quickly.
Risk-free trial period
Once you’ve received your new Emma One mattress, you’ll also benefit from a risk-free trial period.
This means that you can try out the mattress in the comfort of your own home and really ascertain if it’s the right mattress for you.
It usually takes the body a few weeks to get used to a new mattress.
But if, after some time has passed, you’re still not entirely comfortable and happy with your purchase, you can simply return the mattress and receive a full refund. 💷
Returns are free of charge.
In addition, you’ll also get a 10-year guarantee on the Emma One mattress, which covers any manufacturing and material or durability faults.
Terms and conditions do apply.
