How we test products
Our mission is to take the guesswork out of finding the perfect sleep products.
We've dedicated hundreds of hours to testing mattresses and sleep accessories, and rely on a team of testers of differing weights, temperature preferences, and sleeping positions to evaluate each product.
Tested products are granted the Sleep Hero tested stamp of approval, a mark of our review's reliability.
If we haven't personally tested a product, please be assured that we invest significant time and energy into scouring the UK market and researching the best recommendations, and we work with a team of sleep experts who review our articles, ensuring that the insights we provide are not only relatable but also reliable.
Who is the Ergoflex mattress best suited for?
Most bed-in-a-box mattresses are designed to suit a wide variety of people and body types.
But, particular individuals may sleep better on different mattresses. 🙋
The Ergoflex mattress is a good choice for:
- Couples and light sleepers
- Asthma and allergy sufferers
- Any sleep position
The Ergoflex mattress could work for you if you're sharing your bed with a partner, suffer from allergies, or are a side, stomach, or back sleeper.
Couples and light sleepers
The Ergoflex mattress is firm with extremely low motion transfer, making it great for couples and light sleepers. 👫
Motion transfer refers to movement carried through the mattress.
Low motion transfer means less sleep disturbances for you and your partner. 😲
Spring mattresses tend to be bouncier and, therefore, transfer more motion in comparison to mattresses like the Ergoflex 5G.
Asthma and allergy sufferers
The Ergoflex 5g mattress is anti-allergenic, making it ideal for asthma and allergy sufferers.
It is also OEKO-TEX 100 certified and has been tested for harmful substances.
OEKO-TEX-certified products are well-suited to those with sensitive skin or allergies since they are guaranteed not to contain harsh chemicals or dyes.
The Ergoflex 5G memory foam mattress is also anti-microbial. 🤧
It is resistant to dust mites, bacteria, moulds, mildew, and fungi, all of which are common triggers of allergies and asthma.
Any sleep position
The Ergoflex 5G mattress offers a firmer support, but it's still a good option for all sleeping positions.
It is particularly well suited to back sleepers and stomach sleepers, both of which need a firmer mattress to keep their spines aligned.
But, heavier-weight side sleepers will also find the Ergoflex quite comfy.
How comfortable is the Ergoflex mattress?
Have you been wondering if Ergoflex mattresses are any good?
While comfort is pretty subjective, there are some things you can look out for.
Overall, customer reviews of the mattress have been very positive.
Most Ergoflex mattress reviews praise the memory foam's body-hugging support and coziness. 🤗
It is particularly well-suited to those with back pain or joint conditions.
If you suffer from back or joint pain, you may want to try the Ergoflex memory foam mattress.
Why is the Ergoflex mattress good for back pain?
Memory foam is orthopaedic.
It moulds around you, supporting your body's curves and natural lines. 💃
This gives you optimal support and allows your muscles to relax.
It also allows for an overall feel of contouring and good pressure relief.
The foam layers will mould around your body and provide good support so you wake up without any aches and pains. 👌
Comfort according to build & sleeping position
The comfort you’ll experience on the Ergoflex mattress (or any premium mattress) will depend on your build and sleeping position. 🧐
The Ergoflex mattress is a good fit for back sleepers of any build.
This is because it's a firmer mattress that gives you stability and support, allowing your spine to remain optimally aligned while sleeping. 🏔
It's also a good fit for stomach sleepers.
The Ergoflex mattress would also be an excellent choice for heavier-weight side sleepers.
However, it may be a bit too firm for average-weight and lighter-weight side sleepers.
Average and lighter-weight side sleepers may prefer a bed with a bit more give around the shoulders and hips.
Lighter-weight side sleepers may not be heavy enough to sink into the foams, which could cause misalignment and create tension and pain.
If you are exclusively a side sleeper, you may want to consider the Simba Hybrid mattress, which is slightly softer and allows for more sinkage.
If you are quite heavy, though, you may not find the Ergoflex that comfortable.
In general, people of very large builds should try to steer clear of all-foam mattresses, which are generally too soft.
Instead, stick to innerspring mattresses, which can offer much better support.
Ergoflex mattress firmness
The Ergoflex mattress is a medium-firm mattress, though it falls more towards the firmer end of the scale. 🧱
We’d place it at 7 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale, where 1 is the softest and 10 is the firmest.
This makes it a great mattress if you sleep on your back as it is very supportive.
The Ergoflex mattress is a bit less suitable for side sleepers.
Side sleepers tend to prefer something slightly softer that lets their hips and shoulders sink into the mattress. 👍
Ergoflex states that their 5G mattress is ideal for sufferers of back pain, fibromyalgia, circulation problems or joint complaints. 👨⚕️
The Ergoflex mattress also remains firm over time, not softening or sagging.
Ergoflex mattress sizes
The Ergoflex 5G mattress is available in various mattress sizes from their UK website. 🇬🇧
They also have a few EU / European sizes, which perfectly fit IKEA beds.
The Ergoflex 5G mattress comes in these sizes:
- Ergoflex single mattress: 90 x 190 cm (3’ x 6’3”)
- Ergoflex double mattress: 135 x 190 cm (4’6" x 6’3”)
- Ergoflex euro double mattress: 140 x 200 cm (4’6" x 6’6”)
- Ergoflex king-size mattress: 150 x 200 cm (5’ x 6’6”)
- Ergoflex euro king mattress: 160 x 200 cm (5'2" x 6’6”)
- Ergoflex super king mattress: 180 x 200 cm (6’ x 6’6”)
With this range of Ergoflex mattress sizes, it will be easy finding the perfect mattress for your bed. 🌟
The Ergoflex single mattress is best suited to kids and smaller adults.
Taller adults and couples will be more comfortable on an Ergoflex double mattress or something larger.
It’s important to note that the Ergoflex 5G mattress is 23 cm (9 inches) high, which is a little lower than the UK standard of 25 cm (10 inches) in height. 📏
This is a small difference, but it could slightly affect how your sheets fit the bed.

What do I do with my old mattress?
Unfortunately, Ergoflex doesn't offer an old mattress removal service.
Check out our mattress disposal guide if you need help disposing of your old mattress.
The Ergoflex mattress offers excellent durability and a 10-year guarantee period.
This is similar to other mattress brands, with the exception of Nectar and Dreamcloud mattresses, which come with a lifetime guarantee. 😮
Ergoflex is currently the only bed-in-a-box company that has been in business for longer than their guarantee period.
Regardless of the guarantee period, you should consider changing your bed roughly every 10 years.
