Eve Wunderflip mattress composition

The Eve Wunderflip Original is a memory foam mattress with a depth of 24 cm (9.4 inches) and multiple layers.

The layers of the Eve Wunderflip memory foam mattress are:

  • Quilted fabric cover
  • A layer of pressure-relieving memory foam
  • The softer Wunderflip foam layer
  • The firmer Wunderflip foam layer
  • Anti-slip base with handles

All foams used in the mattress are of high quality and have high densities, which is a testament to the mattress's durability.


Eve Sleep mattress layers and cover

Let's take a closer look at the layers of the Eve Wunderflip Memory Foam mattress.

Characteristic white-and-yellow mattress cover

The Eve top cover is made of a long-lasting, quilted fabric treated with Purotex+ [1], an Allergy-UK-certified technology designed to reduce dust mites and bacteria by up to 96.6%.

Conveniently, this top cover can also be zipped off and machine-washed at 40°, which is great for hygienic reasons.

We'd still highly recommend using a waterproof mattress protector to safeguard your mattress.

Pressure-relieving memory foam

The Eve memory foam has an open-cell structure and is up to 5x more breathable than standard memory foam.

It also contains 5 drill holes, which allow the foam to adapt to your body even better and encourage better airflow.

A softer Wunderflip foam layer

You'll have a softer Wunderflip foam layer in the new Wunderflip design.

If you prefer a medium-firm feel, this is the layer you'd choose to have on top.

A firmer Wunderflip foam layer

You'll also have a firmer Wunderflip foam layer in the new Wunderflip mattress design.

If you prefer a firmer feel, this is the layer you'd choose to have on top.

Base cover

The anti-slip base cover extends around the sides of the mattress and features four practical handles that make rotating or carrying the mattress easier.

The new Wunderflip dual firmness levels

The question used to be: How firm is the Eve mattress?

But there are now two sides to this:

  • If you sleep on the softer Wunderflip layer, you'll enjoy a mattress with a medium-firm feel
  • If you sleep on the firmer Wunderflip layer, you'll enjoy a mattress with a firmer feel

Eve mattresses have always offered much more support than standard memory foam mattresses, which tend to give you that "sinking-into-the-foam" feeling.

This makes turning around or switching sleeping positions quite easy, making the Eve Wunderflip ideal for couples and restless sleepers.


Does the Eve mattress offer firmer support?

Since the Eve Wunderflip memory foam mattress is designed to offer medium-firm and firm comfort layers, it's ideal for average-weight sleepers, back sleepers, and front sleepers.

However, if you're looking for a softer mattress or if you're of a lighter build, you may find this mattress too firm.

It's easy to think that all-foam mattresses are softer than hybrid or sprung mattresses, but that's not always the case.

eve wunderflip memory foam mattress

If you're looking for something a little softer, we'd recommend checking out the Simba Hybrid mattress.

Does the Eve mattress offer decent edge support?

Many all-foam mattresses lack edge support and give you the feeling that you're falling off the sides.

This is especially true if you're using the full width of the mattress or if you enjoy sitting on the edge of your bed before getting up in the morning.

This is not the case with the Eve Original.

While not necessarily as supportive as pocket-sprung or edge-enforced mattresses, it offers really good edge support for a memory foam mattress.

This is great as it means you can really stretch out on your bed.

It's also particularly great for couples, as it means that two people can share a smaller mattress size problem-free. 👩‍❤️‍👨

That said, we'd still suggest that couples choose an Eve mattress king-size or larger for the most comfortable sleep (if space allows).

How comfortable is the Eve Original?

The Eve Original is a high-quality mattress that offers a good balance of comfort, stability, and support.

We found it very comfortable in all sleeping positions during our Eve Original mattress review. 😴

A comfortable orthopaedic choice

The Eve Sleep mattress largely features memory foam.

Memory foam is characterised by its memory imprint, which allows the foam to adapt well to the body's contours.

Look at the images below as a demonstration of the memory effect.👇

Memory foam

Hand on memory foam

Memory imprint

This contouring feel encourages muscle relaxation and reduces pressure points.

But the base foams of the Eve also promote stability and support.

The foams work together, allowing for more sinkage for the heavier parts of your body (your hips and shoulders) while offering enough support for the lighter parts of your body.

This keeps your spine in a healthy alignment, promotes overall spinal health, and dramatically reduces the risk of back and neck pain.

This makes the Eve Wunderflip memory foam mattress a good orthopaedic choice. 🦴

Optimal spinal alignment
Your spine should always be perfectly aligned.

But, we didn't find that body-contouring feeling to be too overwhelming during our Eve mattress review testing.

We could still move comfortably and never felt like we were sinking into the foams too much. 👌

Good support in all sleeping positions

The mattress offers good support for all sleeping positions.

We found it most comfortable when sleeping on the back and the stomach.

As a mattress on the firmer end of the scale, it provides great support and stability for lighter-weight back and front sleepers.

While still comfortable in the side position, it wasn't quite as comfortable as slightly softer mattresses like the Simba Hybrid.

Of course, this can differ depending on your body weight. ⚖️

In our experience:

  • Average-weight sleepers will find the Eve memory foam mattress comfortable in any position.
  • Lighter-weight sleepers may find it too firm in the side position but will do well sleeping on the back and stomach.
  • Heavier-weight sleepers may find it a little too soft in the back and stomach position but will probably find it quite comfortable while sleeping on the side.

The best way to see if the mattress is right for you is to try it out during the risk-free trial period.

Does the Eve Original sleep hot?

Memory foam generally retains more heat than other types of foam, resulting in a warmer sleep. 🥵

However, the new-generation memory foam used in the Eve Wunderflip is 5x more breathable than traditional memory foam.


The breathable cover also increases airflow and allows for a cooler, more comfortable sleep.

The mattress still doesn't feel especially cool to lie on but it's not as warm as many other memory foam mattresses.

Even on a hot night, the mattress won't feel too clammy as it's breathable enough to wick away moisture. 💨

Temperature regulation scale

If you prefer a warmer sleep, you could add a weighted blanket or an electric blanket, which is perfectly safe to use with this foam mattress.

But if you're a very heavy sweater or are very sensitive to temperature, you may still wish to opt for a pocket-sprung mattress or a hybrid mattress instead.

These generally offer much greater air circulation and promote a cooler sleep. 🧊

You can try the Eve Wunderflip Hybrid Mattress, which has the pocket spring advantage, or check out our article on the best cooling mattresses for more inspiration.

Is the Eve mattress good for couples?

The Eve Original mattress has exceptionally low motion transfer, which means that movement isn't carried through the mattress but is effectively absorbed and dampened.

This means that you can share your bed with a partner and not be disturbed by movements, making the Eve Original Wunderflip an excellent mattress for couples.


The mattress also has decent edge support, so you can enjoy its full width without fear of falling off the sides.

The ideal mattress size for couples would be king-size, but Eve mattresses double will also do if you're tight on space.

Couples with small bedrooms may do well with a divan bed or an ottoman bed base, which offer more convenient storage solutions.

Eve mattress UK sizes

Eve Wunderflip Memory Foam mattresses are available in all standard UK mattress sizes. 🇬🇧

  • Eve single mattress: 90 x 190 cm (3’ x 6’3”)
  • Eve mattress small double: 120 x 190 cm (4' x 6'3")
  • Eve mattress double: 135 x 190 cm (4’6” x 6’3”)

We'd recommend larger mattress sizes for a more comfortable sleep, but it's worth measuring the space in your bedroom before opting to upgrade your bed.

Eve Sleep mattress delivery conditions

The Eve Original memory foam mattress is delivered free of charge within mainland UK.

Like all bed-in-a-box mattresses, the Eve Original is vacuum-sealed and rolled in a compact box.

This makes it easy to carry the mattress and fit it through narrow passageways, but please be mindful that some larger mattresses are quite heavy, and you may need some assistance to carry the box.

Luckily, Eve offers free room-of-choice delivery.


We answer some further delivery FAQs below.

How do I unpack the Eve Wunderflip Memory Foam mattress?

To unpack your mattress, simply roll it onto your bed frame, cut open the plastic covering, and unfold it.

Your mattress will expand automatically and return to its original full size.

This can take 30 minutes, but it can also take 4 - 5 hours for the mattress to expand fully. ⏰

The video below gives you a good idea of how to unbox your Eve:

Wait for the mattress to expand fully before you snooze away. 😴

Eve Sleep used to offer an old mattress removal service, but this service is currently unavailable.

Will I experience off-gassing?

We highly recommend that you unpack your new mattress in a well-ventilated room.

Bed-in-a-box mattresses often emit a chemical smell when first unpacked, referred to as off-gassing.

While the fumes aren't toxic, they can be a little uncomfortable.

The smell generally dissipates quite quickly, but sometimes you'll need a day or two for it to disappear completely.

Eve trial period

All Eve mattresses come with a risk-free 200-night trial period.

This starts with mattress delivery and gives you the chance to try out the mattress for 200 days to see if it's right for you.

It can take up to 3 weeks to get used to a new mattress, so we'd suggest waiting at least a few weeks before making a final decision.

But if you're not happy with your purchase, no problem. 👌

Trial period

Simply contact Eve via their refunds & returns page.

They will pick up the mattress again - free of charge - and offer you a full refund. 💷


All returned mattresses are either donated to charities or sold as Eve refurbished mattresses at a discounted price.

Should you buy the Eve mattress?

In our opinion - and as our Eve mattress review has hopefully shown - Eve is one of the top mattresses on the market, so you're in luck if you've been wondering if Eve mattresses are any good.

It's comfortable and supportive, and we like the elegant design.

The Eve Wunderflip Memory Foam mattress is particularly well-suited to:

  • Back sleepers and stomach sleepers
  • People of average build
  • People who enjoy medium-firm or firm mattresses
  • People looking for a great value-for-money option
  • Couples

Even if you're not 100% sure, you can still try it out thanks to the risk-free trial and return the mattress for a full refund if you're not satisfied.

Frequently asked questions

  • Who owns Eve mattresses?

    Eve Sleep underwent some changes in recent years.

    While the company had initially gone into administration in 2022, causing multiple Eve mattress problems, it was later bought over by Bensons For Beds, who currently own it. 

    Eve mattresses are still very much in business, though the offering has been condensed.

    Previously, you could purchase a range of Eve products, including Eve beds, Eve mattress toppers, Eve mattress protectors, and more.

    Now, the company focuses almost exclusively on its revamped mattress range, though some other accessories are still available.

  • Where are Eve mattresses made?

    All Eve mattresses are designed and manufactured in the UK. 🇬🇧

  • Are Eve mattresses certified to be safe?

    All foam materials used in the Eve mattress are CertiPUR-certified [2].

    The washable top cover is also OEKO-TEX-certified [3].

    This means that materials have been independently tested to ensure they do not contain harmful chemicals or toxic substances. 🧪

    Raw materials are also sourced from National Bed Federation [4] members, making sure they're of the highest quality.

    In addition, foams are also CFC- and PBDE-free, and all components comply with UK fire regulations.

    Environmentally-friendly manufacturing 

    Eve Sleep also complies with ISO 9001 quality manufacturing standards [5].

    Each mattress is subject to quality tests throughout the production process, from the first foam cut to the finished product.

  • Does the Eve come with a 10-year guarantee?

    The Eve mattress is a high-quality product with exceptional durability.

    Even after prolonged use, you shouldn't experience any Eve mattress problems such as sagging or softening.

    To guarantee this durability, all Eve mattresses come with a 10-year warranty.

    This covers performance issues, including defects in materials and workmanship, provided the mattress has been properly used. 

    If any Eve mattress problems fall within the range of the guarantee, your mattress will be replaced.

    It's worth noting that you should rotate your mattress regularly to prevent premature dipping.

  • How do I clean my Eve mattress?

    Eve mattresses don't require hefty cleaning, so the brand has included its own cleaning instructions.

    • Step 1: Zip-off and wash your mattress protector or Eve mattress cover.
    • Step 2: Pack away any soaps or cleaning products. These can damage the mattress core. But you can take a look at some of our favourite mattress cleaners.
    • Step 3: While you're machine-washing the cover, let your mattress breathe a bit. You could prop it on its side and place it near a window. You can also rotate the mattress 180 degrees.
    • Step 4: If you notice dark spots that look like mould on your mattress or mattress cover, this means it's probably not getting the best ventilation. Make sure you're using a good slatted frame. 

    For more on cleaning your Eve mattress, check out the official Eve mattress cleaning guide.

  • Has the Eve mattress won any awards?

    Eve Sleep is an award-winning mattress brand, and Eve mattress reviews are overwhelmingly positive.

    It has even been deemed the most awarded mattress-in-a-box brand by the Which? Consumer's Association.

    The Eve Original mattress scored a total of 79% in the Which? tests [6]and has been rated as a Which? Best Buy mattress.

    The mattress has also received a 4.1 rating and over 14,000 Eve mattress reviews on Trustpilot.

  • Does Eve offer an NHS discount?

    Eve Sleep UK offers a special NHS discount.

    This is available to a wide variety of UK essential workers, including:

    • Registered health workers
    • Emergency personnel
    • Police and security services

    The discounts change regularly, but key workers can enjoy coupons giving them anything from 10% - 20% or £50 off.

    Please visit NHS Discounts [7] for more information.

  • Which bed frame should you use with your Eve mattress?

    Technically, you can use any high-quality bed frame for your Eve mattress, provided it offers a firm and stable surface. 

    But be careful: 

    If you place your mattress on a non-compatible base or a slatted frame where the slats are more than 7.5 cm (2.9 inches) apart, you will void your warranty. 

    We would recommend sticking to a maximum of 5 cm (1.9 inches) between slats. 👌

    This will protect your mattress best.

  • What other Eve mattresses are available in the UK?

    Eve Sleep features a wide range of different mattresses, which can be a little confusing for customers.

    They've also recently changed their entire mattress line-up. 

    So here are the basics: 


  • Are Eve mattresses available via Amazon UK or independent retailers?

    You'll occasionally be able to find Eve mattresses through third-party sellers and Amazon in the UK.

    But we'd highly recommend buying directly from Eve Sleep.

    This guarantees that you're receiving the original, high-quality product with its characteristic 200-day trial period, free shipping and returns, and a 10-year warranty. 

    The trial period is often not available if purchased through other retailers.

  • Does Eve Sleep sponsor British rowing?

    Eve Sleep is British Rowing’s official sleep partner.

    The brand has refurbished the athletes' sleep shed to give everyone the best rest and recovery between training and competitions.

    Eve Sleep also provides the British Rowing team with a range of its products.
