The Emma Original is a firm favourite.
It adapts perfectly to the contours of the body and distributes pressure evenly, largely due to the addition of memory foam.
The mattress also features a base layer of cold foam, which allows for optimal support and stability.
The three different layers of foam are:
- A top layer of pressure-relieving Airgocell foam (3 cm / 1.1 inches)
- A core of viscoelastic memory foam (3 cm / 1.1 inches)
- A base layer of HRX polyfoam (19 cm / 7.4 inches)
The Emma Original has a total height of 25 cm (10 inches).
Emma Original firmness
The distinctive feature of the Emma Original mattress is the soft cushioning.
It gives you that sleeping-on-a-cloud feeling ☁️
We've rated the Emma mattress at 4 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale, where 1 is the softest and 10 the firmest.
Despite being a soft mattress, the Emma Original still offers good support and stability.
The foams are soft enough to allow for the heavier parts of the body, like the hips and pelvis, to sink in more deeply.
Yet, they are also supportive enough to keep the lighter parts of your body lifted.
This is especially important for side sleepers.
The interaction between sinkage and support allows for optimal spinal alignment, making the Emma mattress a good orthopaedic choice.
It also distributes your body weight well and allows your muscles to relax fully, melting away back pain and tension.
Memory foam generally retains more heat than other types of foam 🥵
But, the Emma mattress allows for good breathability, which keeps the mattress more temperature neutral.
You shouldn't sleep too hot on it.
Low motion transfer
The Emma Original has exceptional low motion transfer and high point elasticity.
This makes it a great mattress for couples.
The memory foam layer effectively absorbs and dampens movements, ensuring that motion is not carried across the mattress.
We found the Emma Original to have even better motion isolation than the Nectar mattress, a more pure memory foam mattress.
Visually, the Emma Original is an elegant model that features a white top cover and dark grey sides.
The cover is breathable, machine-washable at 60℃, and features four side carrying handles for easy transportation.
You can even buy a replacement cover if yours has been damaged or stained.
We would still recommend investing in the waterproof Emma mattress protector for additional protection.
