Designed as a bed-in-a-box mattress distinguished by high-quality components, innovative design, and unbeatable value for money, it certainly has all the features that would make it stand out.

But since we would never blindly believe bold claims, our Sleep Hero experts have tested the Eve Original mattress.

So is it as good as they say it is?

Eve mattress composition

The Eve Original is an excellent memory foam mattress with a depth of 24 cm (9 feet and 4 inches).

It comprises three different high-quality foams and a washable cover that work together to provide superior comfort, support, and breathability.

The three foam layers of the Eve Original are:

  • Evecomfort foam
  • New-generation memory foam
  • High-density base foam

The Eve mattress results from four years of research and development, 100 prototypes, and 70 000 consumer tests.

It stands proudly as the most comfortable mattress ever made (as claimed by Eve Sleep) 🏆

All foams used in the mattress are of high quality and have high densities, which is a testament to the mattress's durability.

Eve mattress layers

Eve mattress layers

1. A top layer of Evecomfort® foam

The Eve mattress's top layer is made of 2.5 cm (0.9") open-celled foam that's both porous and breathable.

This wicks moisture and heat away from the body, allowing for greater breathability and a cooler sleep 😎

At a density of 50kg/m³, this is also a very high-quality, durable foam that offers stability so you won't feel like you're sinking into the mattress too deeply, which can be uncomfortable.

2. A core of new-generation memory foam

The 3 cm (1.1") core layer of visco-elastic memory foam provides most of the Eve mattress's comfort and pressure-relief capabilities.

At a density of 60kg/m³, this is a very high-quality foam that is unlikely to sag or form dents.

The memory foam layer adapts perfectly to the contours of your body, reduces tension and pressure, and allows for a comfortable night's sleep with body-hugging support.

3. A base layer with contour zones

The 18 cm (17") thick base foam sits at a density of 36kg/m³ and provides much of the mattress's support and stability.

It is fitted with seven contour zones, which have been specifically designed to help relieve hip and shoulder pressure, allowing your body to sink in where needed and be supported where required.

This makes the Eve mattress a great orthopaedic choice as well, and you're unlikely to wake up with lower backache or tension.

A no-flip mattress

The Eve mattress has been designed to only be used one way up, so there's no need to ever flip it over.

The mattress should be rotated every six months, though, or every four months if you're of a larger build.

How thick is the Eve mattress?

The Eve mattress has a height of 24 cm (9 feet and 4 inches).

This is 1 cm below the mattress-in-a-box industry standard, but your standard bedding will still fit.

Where are Eve mattresses made?

All Eve mattresses are designed and manufactured in the UK 🇬🇧

Eve mattress cover

With a modern and stylish design, the Eve Original mattress can be identified by its characteristic white-and-yellow cover.

More recently, though, Eve has also brought out a white-and-grey mattress cover, which is available for some mattress dimensions.

The cover is 0.5 cm (0.1") thick and is composed of 98% polyester and 2% elastane.

With its honeycomb design, the white top panel allows for breathability, while the non-slip base has a coating to keep your mattress firmly on your bed frame.

The cover is hypoallergenic, and the top panel can also be unzipped and machine-washed at 40° 🛀

This is great for hygienic purposes and anyone suffering from allergies.

Handles for easy rotations

Even though the Eve is a no-flip mattress, you still need to turn it regularly.

The cover has four practical side handles that make this process easier.

Eve mattress protector

If you're looking to protect your mattress further, we'd recommend investing in the Eve mattress protector.

This will prolong the lifespan of your mattress by protecting it from stains, spills, dirt, and bacteria.

Eve mattress firmness

The Eve Original is a medium-firm mattress that offers the perfect balance of comfort, stability, and support.

We've rated it as 6.5 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale, with 1 being the softest and 10 the firmest.

This suggests that the mattress is still on the softer side and won't give you that "lying on a steel table" feeling. But it's not so soft that you'll feel like you're disappearing into the mattress.

Typical of memory foam mattresses, though, turning around on the mattress is a little more difficult and rolling over or switching sleeping positions will require more effort.

Eve Original firmness

It may still be too soft for heavier builds

Even though the Eve Original is a high-density medium-firm mattress that's suitable for most people and all sleeping positions, you may still find it too soft if you're of a larger build.

This is because heavier-weight people often require much more support to keep their spines well-aligned and may experience too much sinkage on the Eve mattress.

They may be better off choosing firmer mattresses.

That said, it's a good idea to test the mattress first.

Luckily, the Eve mattress comes with a risk-free trial phase, giving you the chance to try it at home for 100 days.

If you sleep comfortably, it will be a good fit, but if you notice any aches or pains, it's best to return the mattress and try a firmer model.

We could recommend the Nectar mattress or the Emma Hybrid mattress instead.

Spinal alignment

What it feels like to sleep on the Eve Original

The Eve Original is an excellent mattress that offers the perfect balance between comfort, stability, and support.

We also felt that it offered good edge support, though you may experience this to be otherwise depending on your weight and requirements.

We found it incredibly comfortable, regardless of sleeping position, which isn't the case with all bed-in-a-box mattresses 🛏

The Eve mattress largely features memory foam, which allows great body adaptation for that contouring support, reducing pressure points and encouraging proper spinal alignment.

This promotes overall spinal health and dramatically reduces the risk of back and neck pain, making the Eve mattress a good orthopaedic choice as well.

The mattress offers good support for back sleepers and stomach sleepers and is also an excellent choice for side sleepers.

You'll notice that your shoulders and hips can sink in more deeply than the lighter parts of your body, which keeps your spine in a healthy alignment.

This is due to the contour zones in the base foam and the interaction of the various foam layers.

Temperature regulation

Memory foam generally retains more heat than other foams, resulting in a warmer sleep.

But the new-generation memory foam used in the Eve Original is up to 30x more breathable than traditional memory foam, which allows heat to be wicked away more effectively.

The porous top layer and the breathable cover also aid in increased airflow and allow for a cooler, more comfortable sleep.

The mattress still doesn't feel especially cool to lie on but it's not as warm as many other memory foam mattresses.

Even on a hot night, the mattress won't feel too clammy as it's breathable enough to wick away moisture 💨

If you prefer a warmer sleep, you may want to add an electric blanket, which is perfectly safe to use with this foam mattress.

If you're a very heavy sweater or are very sensitive to temperature, you may still wish to opt for a pocket sprung mattress or a hybrid mattress instead, which generally offer much greater air circulation and cooler sleep.

We can recommend the Emma Original Hybrid, which offers exceptional breathability.

Low motion transfer

The Eve Original mattress has exceptionally low motion transfer.

This makes it an excellent mattress for couples.

Low motion transfer means that movement isn't passed along the mattress.

Instead, it is effectively absorbed and dampened.

This means that you can share your bed with your partner and not be disturbed by movements.

Delivery & trial period

The Eve mattress is delivered free of charge within the mainland UK.

Though, some delivery costs may apply for remote locations 🚚

Like all bed-in-a-box mattresses, the Eve Original is vacuum-sealed and rolled in a compact box, making it convenient to carry and handle 📦

The box dimensions range from 42 x 42 x 106 cm (16" x 16" x 41'7") for the smaller sizes to 49 x 49 x 105 cm (19" x 19" x 41'3") for the larger sizes.

The larger sizes can get a bit heavy, though (up to 39 kg for the super-king size), so be sure to take this into account if you're handling the mattress by yourself.

You can opt for a two-person delivery service, where the mattress is delivered directly to your bedroom of choice.

Delivery generally takes places within three business days between 08:00 and 19:00, but you can also choose an exact delivery time for an additional fee at checkout.

You cannot amend delivery conditions after checkout, so make sure you double-check all the details and any additional costs before making payment.

Unpacking your mattress

After you've received the mattress, you can roll it out of the box and place it, vacuum-sealed, on your bed frame.

Cut open the plastic covering and roll out your mattress.

It will expand automatically and return to its original full size.

Recycling service & old mattress removal

Eve offers a recycling service where they can pick up your old mattress for a nominal fee.

This solves the problem of having to dispose of your old mattress yourself.

Currently, this option is not available countrywide, but it will come up as an option upon checkout if it is available in your area.

100-day trial

All Eve mattresses come with a risk-free 100-night trial period.

This starts with mattress delivery and gives you the chance to try out the mattress for 100 days to see if it's right for you.

It can take up to 3 weeks to get used to a new mattress, so we'd suggest waiting at least a few weeks before making a final decision.

But if you're not happy with your purchase, no problem.

Simply contact Eve via their refunds & returns page.

They will pick up the mattress again - free of charge - and offer you a full refund 💵

20% OFF £500 WITH 'MAY20'

Eve 10-year guarantee

The Eve mattress is a high-quality product with exceptional durability.

Even after prolonged use, you shouldn't experience any sagging or softening.

To guarantee this durability, all Eve mattresses come with a 10-year warranty.

This covers performance issues, including defects in materials and workmanship, provided the mattress has been properly used.

Should I buy the Eve mattress?

In our opinion - and as our Eve Original mattress review has hopefully shown - Eve is one of the best mattresses on the market.

It offers excellent breathability and does not retain heat, uses high-quality materials, is very comfortable, and offers excellent stability and support.

We also really like the elegant design with its distinctive yellow border.

The Eve Original is particularly well-suited to:

  • Back sleepers, stomach sleepers, and side sleepers
  • People of average build
  • People who enjoy medium-firm mattresses
  • People looking for a great value-for-money option

Even if you're not 100% sure, you can still try it out thanks to the risk--free trial and return the mattress for a full refund if you're not satisfied.

But with a low return rate of 5%, you're likely to be very happy with your purchase 😃

    It's available at £35, but it also comes free when you spend £50 or more on pillows, duvets, bed linen and protectors.

  • Are Eve mattresses any good?


    Eve Sleep makes high-quality mattresses using high-density foams.

    They've been uniquely created to achieve a perfect balance between comfort, stability, support, and breathability.

    Please read our mattress reviews to see which Eve mattresses are suitable for you.

  • Are Eve mattresses available via Amazon UK or independent retailers?

    You'll occasionally be able to find Eve mattresses through third-party sellers, but Eve mattresses are not currently available via Amazon in the UK.

    We'd suggest buying directly from Eve Sleep.

    This guarantees that you're receiving the original, high-quality product with its characteristic 100-day trial period, free shipping and returns, and a 10-year warranty. 

  • What payment options does Eve Sleep offer?

    You can purchase your Eve product on the Eve UK website via credit card, debit card, or PayPal.

    Online payments are secure.

    Eve also offers financing options, and they’ve teamed up with Divido (0% instalments) to help you choose how and when to pay.

  • How do I clean my Eve mattress?

    Eve mattresses don't require hefty cleaning, so the brand has included its own cleaning instructions:

    • Step 1: Zip off & wash your mattress protector or Eve mattress cover.
    • Step 2: Pack away any soaps or cleaning products. These can damage the mattress core.
    • Step 3: While you're washing the cover, let your mattress breathe a bit. You could prop it on its side and place it near a window. You can also rotate the mattress 180 degrees, but don't flip it. Eve mattresses are no-flip products.
    • Step 4: If you notice dark spots that look like mould on your mattress or mattress cover, this means it's probably not getting the best ventilation. Make sure you're using a good slatted frame. 

    For more on cleaning your Eve mattress, check out the official Eve mattress cleaning guide.

  • How can I return my Eve mattress?

    Returns of Eve mattresses and accessories are handled online via the returns portal.

    This portal details the steps you need to take.

    Eve Sleep provided the British Rowing team with a whole range of their products.
