Emma Vs. Eve

Last updated: 30.07.2020 5 Min.

The Eve Original mattress and the Emma Original have been developed according to the same concept. Both companies aim to make the purchase of mattresses as simple as possible, which also explains why both companies rely mainly on online sales.

These two start-ups offer a single model that's suitable for everyone, irrespective of the preferred sleeping position or bodyweight of the buyer.

Both mattresses are sold according to the mattress-in-a-box principle. They also both offer a 100-day trial period. During this period, you can test the mattress and return it if you're not entirely satisfied. If returned, you will receive a full refund. For a limited time, Emma UK will be offering a 200-day trial period instead of the standard 100 days.

Mattress layers

3 layers:

  • Memory foam
  • Ultra-High Resilience PU foam with open cells
  • Reflex PU foam high resilience foam

3 layers:

  • Airgocell (patented)
  • Visco-elastic foam
  • Cold foam base
Advantages of specific composition The foam adapts to the contours of the body Pressure relief and support
Comfort zones No special zones Integration of a support zone for the shoulders in the cold foam layer

The two mattresses have different characteristics and materials. But they both have the same goal - maximum comfort and a good fit to the body. The Emma mattress has a special shoulder zone, which supports the sinking of the shoulders and ensures a pleasant feeling when lying down.



Both Eve and Emma are foam mattresses, but they consist of different layers. Visually, they are also very different.

Emma Original mattress: 3 layers of foam with Airgocell

  • Top layer: Patented Airgocell. Airgocell is a type of gel foam, similar to memory foam, which is very adaptable. Airgocell has good temperature regulating properties and so ensures a cooler sleeping temperature.
  • Second layer: Memory foam has a high degree of adaptability and point-elasticity. This distributes the body weight evenly and reduces pressure points.
  • Bottom layer: Cold foam to ensure stability and durability of the mattress.


Emma Foam Layers

Eve mattress: 3 layers of foam without latex layer

  • Top layer: 3cm of open-cell Ultra-High Resilience PU foam, which wicks moisture away and dissipates heat from the body.
  • Second layer: 3cm of new generation memory foam (viscoelastic), which relieves pressure points.
  • Bottom layer: 18cm of base foam (Reflex PU High Resilience), which provides superior durability and resilience.

The Eve Original is a little firmer than the Emma Original mattress, which explains why heavier-weight people prefer the Eve mattress and wouldn't normally choose the Emma mattress. The Emma mattress is perfect for people who prefer a softer mattress. Eve, as a medium-firm mattress, can be used more widely.

Both mattresses are of high quality and offer a high level of comfort. However, they are suitable for different types of sleepers.

The Eve Original will be perceived as firmer, while the Emma Original is among the softest models on the market. People who prefer to sleep on a firm mattress should, therefore, choose the Eve mattress. The Emma mattress is more suitable for those who prefer soft surfaces.
