The two upper layers are intended to provide a comfortable and cuddly feel when lying down. Airgocell has excellent point-elasticity, allowing one area to compress without affecting the rest of the mattress. This is great if you’re sharing the mattress with a partner. Memory foam distributes pressure evenly and adapts well to the contours of your body, allowing you to melt into the mattress. The interplay of the cooler Airgocell foam and the heat-retaining memory foam ensures an optimal sleeping climate.
The so-called ventilation channels that have been integrated into the mattress further ensure good ventilation. Air can circulate better, allowing the mattress to remain cooler. This makes your overall sleeping climate more comfortable and also prevents the build-up of mites and bacteria, which prefer warmer and more humid homes.
The majority of the mattress is made up of the third later of HRX foam. This is a firm cold foam bottom layer that offers support and stability for your entire body. Appropriate incisions in the shoulder and pelvic areas allow the mattress to adapt to your body optimally.
The white Emma One cover is rather plain but it gets the job done. The top cover is made of 100% polyester, whereas the bottom is 89% polyester and 11% polypropylene.
The Emma One mattress cover is incredibly breathable, which allows it to support the mattress properties and leave you with a comfortable and temperature-optimal experience.
The white top cover regulates humidity and is made of elastic so it fits onto your mattress perfectly. The side cover features 3D-mesh that supports air circulation and 4 robust handles that makes transporting the mattress easier.
The cover has a zip and is easily removable. It can be machine-washed at 40°C, which is great for hygiene purposes.
According to the manufacturer, the Emma One mattress is suitable for any person weighing between 50 kg and 130 kg. However, it doesn’t have a set degree of firmness and can be described as a universal, one-for-all mattress.
After extensive testing, our test sleepers have rated the Emma One as a medium-firm to firm mattress, though some did find it a little firmer than others. We’ve placed it at 8 out of 10 on the Sleep Herofirmness scale.
The Emma One is an exceptionally comfortable mattress, no matter which sleeping position you prefer. You’ll be well-supported, regardless of whether you sleep on your stomach, back, or side.
Interestingly, both lighter-weight and heavier-weight people find the Emma One comfortable and supportive, despite its firmness. This is because the foams used in the Emma One mattress adapt perfectly to the body — you sink into the mattress in exactly the right places so that your spine is well-supported and your muscles can relax accordingly.
That said, it is best suited to those who prefer a firm sleeping surface. The firm support also makes it a great choice for heavier-weight people.
The unique interplay of Airgocell foam and memory foam allows for an optimal sleeping climate. The mattress does not absorb too much body heat and is well-ventilated due to its ventilation channels. This keeps the mattress at room temperature.
The Emma One mattress has excellent motion transfer capabilities and is well-suited to couples. More on this below.
Is the Emma One mattress suitable for couples?
Yes, the Emma One mattress is an excellent choice for couples. This is not only because it is exceptionally comfortable but also because it is so well-suited to both lighter- and heavier-weight individuals. This means that two partners of varying body weights will find the mattress equally comfortable.
The Emma One mattress also offers excellent point elasticity and low motion transfer. It is also very easy to move on.
Usually, memory foam mattresses can be quite cumbersome to move on. Spring mattresses have a higher restoring force and elasticity and make movement easier. But since the Emma One is not a pure memory foam mattress, changing position from one side to the other is quite easy.
Another excellent property is its low motion transfer. This means that you won’t be disturbed by your partner tossing and turning or getting up in the middle of the night. The mattress doesn’t absorb the vibrations and remains still, allowing both partners to sleep beautifully.
How does the Emma One compare to the Emma Original?
It is often difficult to compare one mattress to another. This is why we have a specific set of criteria by which we compare mattresses. The number one comparison people make is between the Emma One and the Emma Original. Both mattresses are comparable in their construction and feature three foam layers of Airgocell, memory foam, and a cold foam base.
However, it is in the firmness that you’ll find the greatest difference. While the Emma Original is a soft mattress that we’ve placed at 4 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale, the Emma One is a firm mattress that we’ve placed at 8 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale. Both mattresses are incredibly comfortable and designed to suit all people but pay attention to the firmness level you prefer. This will guide you in your mattress choice.
Like all Emma products, the Emma One mattress will be delivered to your front door free of charge. The mattress is rolled up and vacuum-packed and will be delivered in a compact box that’s narrow enough to fit through any passageway. Once unpacked, the mattress will slowly inflate and return to its original size.
You will notice a bit of an odour when first unpacking the Emma One mattress but this is not unusual. Indeed, off-gassing is a normal feature of new mattresses and is not toxic or harmful in any way. That said, it can be a little uncomfortable. We recommend that you unpack your mattress in a well-ventilated room and let it breathe for a bit. The smell should disappear quite quickly.
Once you’ve received your new Emma One mattress, you’ll also benefit from a 200-day risk-free trial period. This means that you can try out the mattress in the comfort of your own home and really ascertain if it’s the right mattress for you. It usually takes the body a few weeks to get used to a new mattress. But if, after some time has passed, you’re still not entirely comfortable and happy with your purchase, you can simply return the mattress, free of charge, and receive a full refund.
In addition, you’ll also get a 10-year guarantee on the Emma One mattress, which covers any manufacturing and material or durability faults. Terms and conditions do apply.
Emma is a German start-up company first established in 2015. The idea behind the company was to make the mattress market as transparent and consumer-oriented as the market in the United States. According to its founder, Max Laarmann, consumers should not have to buy mattresses at extravagant prices from local stores. Instead, they should be able to buy a reasonably priced mattress online and benefit from a long and risk-free trial period.
Today, the Emma mattress is one of the most popular online mattresses, selling all over Europe and in the UK. The brand has also expanded and now not only sells its original mattress but also hybrid mattresses, baby mattresses, and select accessories.
All Emma mattresses sold in the UK are also manufactured in the UK.
In addition to the mattresses, Emma also offers other sleeping accessories:
