OTTY FLEX MATTRESS REVIEW

Nancy K.

Last updated: 30.07.2020 5 Min.

The Otty Flex mattress is designed by a British start-up company, Otty Sleep.

It offers a very innovative construction. Made up of a combination of memory foam and gel foam, it is designed to combine the positive properties of all the materials used.

The mattress also combines a sleek and stylish modern design with superior comfort and great breathability.

We’ve tested the Otty Flex mattress at home. Here is our review.

Otty Flex Mattress Review
  • Overview
  • Composition
  • Otty Flex mattress cover
  • Otty Flex mattress firmness
  • Otty Flex mattress comfort
  • Delivery & customer service
  • Conclusion

Advantages

  • Medium-firm: Suitable for many different body types and sleeping positions
  • Particularly recommended for light- and medium-weight sleepers
  • Adapts well to the body and has high point elasticity
  • Low motion transfer makes it great for couples
  • Good breathability with a medium-warm sleeping climate
  • Memory foam is very comfortable
  • Innovative structure due to the upper gel foam layer
  • Very fast delivery, usually within 1 business day

Disadvantages

  • The Otty may be too soft for sleepers weighing over 90kg.
  • We experienced some problems with customer services

Composition

Complex structure due to four different layers:

  • Top: 3 cm gel foam. Otty’s Cool Blue technology. This innovative material has an air-permeable structure and regulates the sleeping climate.
  • Second layer: 3 cm cold foam. This layer distributes body weight and reduces pressure points. It provides a certain firmness to the mattress.
  • Third layer: 19 cm memory foam. This is the heart of the Otty Flex mattress, providing great body adaptability and typical memory foam comfort.
  • Bottom layer: 5 cm base foam. Provides a solid foundation. Also, reduce the formation of hollows, provides stability, and balances the softer upper layers.

The Airflow side support of the Otty mattress is also unique. Made of open-cell foam, these are designed to increase breathability and provide improved air circulation.

Otty Flex mattress cover

The features of the Otty mattress cover surprised us the most. It is composed of various elements, ensuring an overall medium-warm sleeping climate.

The soft top cover is white, while the robust side cover has a minimalist grey colour and features the Otty logo. This gives the Otty Flex a modern, yet elegant, look.

The 3 cm cover is infused with gel foaming divided into 5 zones. This gives the Otty Flex additional support and provides further comfort.

The cover as such has fine pores and is permeable to air. In combination with the upper gel foam layer, it noticeably reduces the sleeping climate.

The cover can easily be removed and washed.

Even though the Otty mattress has these cooling features, the mattress offers a medium-warm sleeping climate. This is because the lower layers store body heat, and so the Otty provides a unique balance between heating and cooling elements. This makes the Otty very comfortable.

Otty Flex mattress firmness

Otty Flex Firmness

In our experience, the Otty is a slightly softer mattress. We’d rate it as a soft to a low medium-firm mattress. We’ve thus placed the Otty Flex mattress at 5 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale.

Otty Flex mattress comfort

We enjoyed sleeping on the Otty Flex mattress. The individual layers are of high quality and the mattress as a whole offers a well-balanced feel when lying down.

The mattress definitely succeeds in combining the advantages of all its individual materials.

The point elasticity of this mattress is very high. Pressure points are thus reduced, which could also make the Otty an interesting choice for people with orthopaedic complaints. The memory foam layer offers a high degree of adaptability and has great motion transfer capabilities. The Otty is also a great option for restless sleepers due to the gel foam layer.

BUY OTTY FLEX

In our opinion, the Otty mattress is one of the softer medium-firm models. We would recommend it to light- and medium-weight sleepers, particularly if they enjoy sleeping in the side position. It may be a little too soft for heavier-weight people over 90 kg, as well as for those who sleep solely on their backs or stomachs.

The Otty mattress is available in all standard sizes and is designed for singles as well as for couples. We think that it is well-suited for couples due to its low motion transfer. This means that your partner’s movements are cushioned by the materials and you won’t be disturbed at night.

Despite being predominantly a memory foam mattress, the upper gel foam layer and the Airflow side supports ensure that the Otty Flex has great breathability.

Delivery & customer service

The Otty mattress is delivered rolled up in a compact box within 1 business day across mainland UK, though order cut-off times do apply.

Once delivered, customers will also benefit from a 100-day trial period, in which they can try out the mattress in the comfort of their own home. If not fully satisfied, they can simply return the mattress.

We had some problems with customer services but still think that the mattress is recommendable due to its superior quality and relatively low price point.

Conclusion

We liked the Otty mattress. It offered great sleeping comfort and is made of unique materials. We also really liked the stylish design of the mattress.

It is one of the softer medium-firm models, and we’ve rated it at 5 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale. Many people will find this firmness pleasant and comfortable to sleep on. It is especially well-suited for light- and medium-weight sleepers who like a softer feel.

Even though the individual layers are made of high-quality materials, the mattress is still cheaper than those of comparable competitors.

Additional information

  • Things worth knowing

    Mattresses returned during the 100-day trial period are donated to schools and charities. Of course, they are cleaned first.

    Equality and diversity are very important to Otty. The department store in Leeds is run entirely by disabled people.

    Otty also offers a special discount for people working in the police and ambulance services, as well as military personnel.

  • About the manufacturer

    The company Otty Sleep, found in Yorkshire, UK, is now based in Leeds. The founder of Otty, Michal Szlas, wanted to create a model that combined the advantages of memory foam and gel foam. Michal was already working on various models before the company started and evaluated thousands of customer reports. The British start-up company found great success with its model and has expanded to operate in Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Poland. 

  • Accessories

    Otty also sells a bed frame and two types of pillows, with special emphasis on their Deluxe Air pillow. This pillow comes in the grey-and-white design to match the mattress. The material is also comparable. It consists of a combination of cooling gel foam with adaptable memory foam.
