Eve mattress composition
The Eve Original is a memory foam mattress with a depth of 24 cm (9.4 inches).
It comprises three different high-quality foams and a washable cover that work together to provide superior comfort, support, and breathability.
The three foam layers of the Eve Original are:
- Evecomfort foam
- New-generation memory foam
- High-density base foam
The Eve mattress results from four years of research and development, 100 prototypes, and 70 000 consumer tests.
It stands proudly as the most comfortable mattress ever made (as claimed by Eve Sleep). 🏆
All foams used in the mattress are of high quality and have high densities, which is a testament to the mattress's durability.
Eve mattress layers
1. A top layer of Evecomfort® foam
The Eve mattress's top layer comprises 2.5 cm (0.9 inches) open-celled foam that's both porous and breathable.
This wicks moisture and heat away from the body, allowing for greater breathability and a cooler sleep. 😎
At a density of 50kg/m³, this is also a very high-quality, durable foam that offers stability so you won't feel like you're sinking into the mattress too deeply, which can be uncomfortable.
2. A core of new-generation memory foam
The 3 cm (1.1 inches) core layer of visco-elastic memory foam provides most of the Eve mattress's comfort and pressure-relief capabilities.
At a density of 60kg/m³, this is a very high-quality foam that is unlikely to sag or form dents.
The memory foam layer adapts perfectly to the contours of your body, reduces tension and pressure, and allows for a comfortable night's sleep with body-hugging support 🤗
3. A base layer with contour zones
The 18 cm (17 inches) thick base foam sits at a density of 36kg/m³ and provides much of the mattress's support and stability.
It is fitted with seven contour zones.
These have been specifically designed to help relieve hip and shoulder pressure, allowing your body to sink in where needed and be supported where required.
This makes the Eve mattress a great orthopaedic choice as well, and you're unlikely to wake up with lower backache or tension.
How comfortable is the Eve Original?
The Eve Original is a high-quality mattress that offers a good balance between comfort, stability, and support.
We found it very comfortable in all sleeping positions. 😴
A comfortable orthopaedic choice
The Eve 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.👇
This body-hugging feel encourages muscle relaxation and reduces pressure points.
But, the contoured base layer of the Eve mattress also promotes stability and support. 👍
The two 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 mattress a good orthopaedic choice. 🦴
But, we didn't find that body-contouring feel to be too overwhelming.
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 more on the firm end of the scale, it provides great support and stability for 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 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.
Low motion transfer
The Eve Original mattress has exceptionally low motion transfer.
Low motion transfer means that movement isn't carried through the mattress.
Instead, it is effectively absorbed and dampened.
This means that you can share your bed with a partner and not be disturbed by movements. 💃
This makes the Eve Original an excellent mattress for couples.

Eve memory foam pillow
The Eve memory foam pillow is the most popular pillow by Eve Sleep.
Unlike some other pillows that feature a multitude of layers and fillings, Eve keeps things simple with one core layer of memory foam designed with holes to encourage airflow. 🌬️
This pillow is OEKO-TEX® certified, making it safe for everyone, including children. 👶
It is protected by a soft and stretchy hypoallergenic jersey knit cover, which is fully removable and machine-washable at 40°.
Eve mattress topper
The Eve Mattress Topper features two layers of foam:
- Evecomfort open-cell foam (2 cm / 0.7 inches)
- Ultra-resilient reflex base foam (3 cm / 1.2 inches)
The Evecomfort foam is up to 30x more breathable than traditional memory foam.
This prevents overheating and helps to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night.
The Eve topper is CertiPUR-certified and tested to meet both British and European quality standards.
This ensures that your topper is free from toxins and harmful chemicals. 🌱
The 100% polyester top cover carries the Oeko-Tex Class 1 certification and is naturally flame retardant.
It is also machine-washable at 40°C, making this a great choice for people prone to allergies.
The topper features convenient corner straps so you can attach it to your mattress.
Eve weighted blanket
Weighted blankets are specifically designed to help ease anxiety by putting gentle pressure on the body.
The Eve Weighted Blanket is made of 100% cotton to ensure the even spread of weight over your body.
The hugging comfort helps ease anxiety, giving you the perfect bedtime hug to rest well.
The Eve Weighted Blanket comes in one standard size of 120 x 220 cm.
Eve trial period
All Eve mattresses come with a risk-free 1-year trial period.
This starts with mattress delivery and gives you the chance to try out the mattress for 365 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. 👌
Simply contact Eve via their refunds & returns page.
They will pick up the mattress again - free of charge - and offer you a full refund. 💷
