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.
The REM-Fit mattress selection
REM-Fit is a relatively young company that was founded in 2014.
All REM-Fit mattresses come with a 100-night trial, a 15-year guarantee, and free 2-person delivery.
The brand currently has two mattress collections:
- REM-Fit Hybrid mattresses.
- REM-Fit Eco mattresses.
We'll take a closer look at the mattresses in each of these collections below. 🕵️♀️
REM-Fit specialises in hybrid mattresses and other sleep accessories, with a particular focus on helping keep hot sleepers cool. ❄️
These hybrid designs have taken off following the growing complaints of memory foam mattresses trapping heat and sleeping too warm! 🥵
The pocket spring layers in hybrid mattresses promote increased airflow.
Meanwhile, the memory foam and foam layers offer excellent pressure relief and body contouring support. 🤗
All REM-Fit hybrid mattresses have a thermos-regulating, hypoallergenic, removable and washable cover. 🧼
There are a total of 4 mattresses in the REM-Fit hybrid mattress collection.
Each hybrid mattress has a slightly different firmness, between medium and extra firm.
- REM-Fit 400 Hybrid Mattress (6 out of 10 medium feel).
- REM-Fit 500 Ortho Hybrid Mattress (9 out of 10 very firm feel).
- REM-Fit 600 Lux Hybrid Mattress (7.5 out of 10 medium-firm feel).
- REM-Fit Pocket 1000 Memory Foam Hybrid Mattress (7 out of 10 medium-firm feel).
Your sleeping position will largely determine which of these REM-Fit hybrid mattresses you find most comfortable. 🤔
Stomach sleepers need a firmer mattress to keep their spine correctly aligned.
Meanwhile, back sleepers are best suited to medium-firm mattresses.
If you are a side sleeper, you should opt for a soft to medium-firm mattress that allows your shoulders and hips to sink in.
The REM-Fit 500 Ortho is an extra-firm mattress. 🧱
While REM-Fit 500 Ortho mattress reviews show some split feelings towards this extra-firm mattress, it could be perfect if you are heavier, tend to sleep on your stomach, or prefer the feel of a firm mattress.
Aside from its hybrid range, REM-Fit also has a smaller eco-friendly collection of mattresses. ♻️
- REM-Fit Eco Premium Hybrid mattress (7 out of 10 medium-firm feel).
- REM-Fit Remy+ Eco mattress (8 out of 10 medium-firm feel).
- REM-Fit Remy Kidz Eco mattress (7 out of 10 medium-firm feel).
These were designed with sustainability in mind.
But what makes the REM-Fit Eco mattress range environmentally friendly?
Each of the REM-Fit Eco mattresses is crafted with an upcycled marine plastic cover. 🐠
They also use either upcycled foam, recycled foam, or recyclable foam.
These mattresses are an excellent choice for people who are concerned about their impact on the environment.
Who are REM-Fit mattresses suitable for?
Most REM-FIt products fall in the mid-range price point, though their frequent sales and discounts mean customers can find even better deals.
If you're looking for a more socially aware brand - REM-Fit is partnered with the British Heart Foundation. ❤️
They donate returned mattresses to the British Heart Foundation to sell, and the UK charity keeps all profits.
Beyond this, REM-Fit mattresses are well-suited to various sleepers.
- Hot sleepers.
- Couples and restless sleepers.
- Eco-conscious individuals.
- Those with back pain.
So, let's take a closer look at who REM-Fit mattresses are best for (and why). 👀
Hot sleepers know the struggle of overheating, especially on conventional memory foam mattresses.
The heat can leave you tossing, turning, and generally sleeping poorly. 🙅
Overheating has actually been linked to increases in wakefulness and decreases in rapid eye movement sleep and slow wave sleep, essential parts of our sleep cycle.
Most REM-Fit mattresses incorporate pocket springs into their hybrid mattress design to prevent overheating. 🎉
Several REM-Fit mattresses also use open-cell memory foam technology to further enhance breathability and airflow. 💨
And the cherry on top is that all REM-Fit mattresses have a thermos-regulating cover preventing hot air and moisture from getting trapped in the bed.
So, if you're a hot sleeper seeking cool relief, REM-Fit mattresses could be the perfect solution.
The REM-Fit 400 Hybrid mattress is an all-round favourite of hot sleepers. ☃️
A good choice for couples
REM-Fit mattresses offer excellent motion isolation. 👩❤️👨
Motion isolation refers to how certain materials, like memory foam, prevent movements from travelling over surfaces.
REM-Fit mattresses are constructed with high-density memory foam, which helps absorb movement.
So, you are less likely to feel it if your partner moves! 💤
Not only can low-motion transfer mattresses help you get a better night's sleep, undisturbed by a partner's fidgeting, but they can also help stop you from tossing and turning.
Low-motion transfer mattresses tend to mould to the body, absorbing and reducing movements during the night. 🙌
While all REM-Fit mattresses have low-motion transfer, the REM-Fit Pocket 1000 Hybrid is particularly good for couples and restless sleepers.
REM-Fit offers several eco-friendly mattresses for anyone concerned about sustainability. 🌏
These mattresses are made from various sustainable and recycled materials, including the upcycled ocean plastic REM-Fit mattress cover.
They use CertiPUR-certified foam, which is free from harmful chemicals and has low VOC emissions.
REM-Fit also uses a carbon-neutral manufacturing process. 💚
Beyond the eco-friendly materials and processes used, REM-Fit also offers a 15-year guarantee.
This guarantee means your REM-Fit mattress should last longer, so you won't have to replace your mattress as often.
Those with back pain
Back pain can make sleeping difficult. 😭
REM-Fit mattresses promote correct spinal alignment, helping you get a great night's sleep.
Some REM-Fit 500 mattress reviews say this extra-firm mattress worked wonders for their backs.
Of course, this mattress may be too firm for some.
A too-soft or too-firm mattress can aggravate back problems, whilst the right one can help alleviate them. 😄
Overall, customers praised this mattress for its back pain relief in REM-Fit 600 Lux Hybrid mattress reviews.
Its dual layers of pocket springs ensure adaptive support, while the zoned memory foam provides much-needed pressure-relieving support.
If you're looking for a mattress for your little one, REM-Fit also has one mattress for children. 🧒
The environmentally-friendly REM-Fit Remy Kidz Eco mattress is an all-foam design with an upcycled, washable cover.
It is only available in one size, a standard UK single.
REM-Fit mattress covers
One of the highlights of REM-Fit mattresses is their covers.
Most of their mattresses come with covers that are removable, washable, and hypoallergenic, making maintenance and hygiene a breeze. 🧼
The only exception to this is the budget REM-Fit Pocket 1000 Memory Foam Hybrid mattress.
Of course, whether or not your mattress cover is removable, we still suggest using a mattress protector to elongate your mattress lifespan and protect it from spills, sweat, and bacteria.
For those particularly keen on temperature regulation, the hybrid collection offers thermos-regulating covers. ❄️
The REM-Fit 400, 500, and 600 boast Re-Ax fibre covers, designed to soak up and wick away excess moisture.
And for the environmentally conscious, the REM-Fit Eco collection stands out with its soft, knitted Seaqual covers.
These are crafted from 100% upcycled ocean plastic. 🌊

REM-Fit mattress delivery conditions
REM-Fit delivery conditions are refreshingly straightforward.
Next-day delivery within the UK is completely free! 🚚
Unfortunately, this free next-day delivery doesn't extend to areas like the Scottish Islands, the Republic of Ireland, or the Scilly Isles.
If you've got a specific day in mind, REM-Fit's got you covered with their day-of-choice delivery, also at no extra charge. 📅
Like many other bed-in-a-box mattresses, the REM-Fit mattress is compressed, rolled up, and vacuum-packed when delivered.
This makes it easier to manoeuvre it to the room of your choosing.
REM-Fit premium delivery
Alternatively, there's also the REM-Fit premium delivery option.
This includes a 2-person delivery service to your chosen room and, for an additional fee, the chance to have your old mattress responsibly collected and disposed of.
These delivery services are some of the best around, particularly if you're in a hurry to have your mattress home.
However, as with any service, things aren't always smooth sailing. ⛵
Some REM-Fit mattress reviews complained that they did not receive their mattress when promised.
We will say that REM-Fit's customer support team seems to be quite good at resolving issues, leaving most customers satisfied.
Should you buy a REM-Fit mattress?
REM-Fit mattresses excel when it comes to sustainability and temperature regulation.
Most REM-Fit mattress reviews speak of how comfortable the mattresses are.
Plus, the 15-year guarantee, risk-free trial period, and proactive customer support team offer some great reassurances in case something does go wrong or for those who simply don't love their new mattress like they thought they would.
Overall, it's not hard to see why REM-Fit has a great Trustpilot rating.
