A good mattress topper can greatly enhance the features of your mattress. But does the Eazzy topper do this?
Comfort & firmness
We found sleeping on the Eazzzy topper quite comfortable - but it also wasn’t fantastic. Of course, the quality of the actual mattress does play a role here. This is why we always recommend choosing a high-quality mattress to begin with. You can read all our mattress reviews but we've also linked to some of our favourite mattresses and top recommendations at the bottom of this article.
Since a topper’s efficacy depends on the quality of the mattress, it is impossible to state a general degree of firmness or improvement in comfort. A mattress topper cannot magically turn a bad mattress into a good one.
For our review, we chose to test the Eazzzy topper on a pocket spring mattress, the IKEA Hövag. This is not a very good mattress and we would always much rather go for a quality mattress like the Emma Original or Eve Lighter Hybrid. That said, the IKEA Hövåg is an average mattress of a firm feel, making it a good choice to test the efficacy of a mattress topper.
In our case, we did notice an improvement in sleeping comfort with the Eazzzy topper. This topper definitely made the mattress softer and thus much more comfortable.
Nevertheless, a topper with a gel pad or integrated memory foam would be much better. These adapt better to the contours of the body and allow for adequate pressure distribution, allowing for an overall more comfortable feel. The Eazzzy topper is made of cheaper quality foam, which definitely negatively affects the overall quality of the topper.
Our Eazzzy topper seems to have been faulty
This came as quite a surprise and we really haven’t seen anything like this before, but our topper wasn’t perfectly level and had a kink in the middle. This was probably due to longer storage. Even though the topper is rolled up, the larger toppers are still folded in the middle. This would possibly explain the kink.
Of course, this should never happen. While the topper did flatten out a little after a few days, traces of the bend still remained. This severely affected sleeping comfort, and it’s not great for your spine and back either. You would never want your mattress or sleep accessories to cause back pain. Unfortunately, our opinion of the Eazzzy topper was severely diminished by this.
If you've read some of the other content on Sleep Hero, you'll know that all of the mattresses and sleep accessories sold online are generally vacuum-sealed and delivered in compact boxes. This proves that it is possible to deliver high-quality products without damage or faults, making the kink in our Eazzzy topper even more perplexing.
This also doesn't seem to be a once-off occurrence and we've read other reviews where the same problem occurred. This may be indicative of lesser quality, bad manufacturing, or faulty storage and transport choices.
Sinkage depths with the Eazzzy topper
In order to verify if there was an actual difference to the firmness, we measured the sinkage depths with and without the Eazzzy topper. We took measurements while lying on our stomach, back, and side. These are our results:
|Test sleeper (1.78 m / 65 kg)
||Sinkage without Eazzzy topper
||Sinkage with Eazzzy topper
|Lying on the back
|Lying on the side
|Lying on the stomach
As you can see from the above table, sinkage with the Eazzzy topper greatly improved. This suggests that the mattress did, indeed, become softer with the addition of the Eazzzy topper.
As alluded to previously, the exact effect of a mattress topper will depend on the quality and firmness of the actual mattress used. We slept on a firm innerspring mattress, which we'd rate as a 7 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale. With the topper, we would give it a rating of 6 to 6.5 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale.
The Eazzzy topper definitely provided a more comfortable sleep and created a softer sleeping surface.
