Tuft and Needle was founded in 2012. Their simple goal was to build a better mattress and provide a better experience for the consumer. Since their initial launch, they’ve added a matching pillow to their line and have provided superb customer service. Their team is fun, dynamic, and full of talent. The company’s unique approach to the industry is what first intrigued me to write a review of the product. But as I learned more about their product, I found myself becoming an instant fan.
Read my report to learn about this no-frills design that has the competition shaking in its boots. I’ll go over the simple yet effective construction along with who would benefit most from this product. If you’re ready to learn all about this unique design, let’s start my assessment of it.
As previously mentioned, the model is fairly basic. But this doesn’t mean it’s not effective. The 10” design consists of two layers. The top layer is made of a triple-layer blended foam. It feels like memory foam but bounces like latex, which I appreciated. . The second layer is made up of 7” of high density support foam, a standard thickness and material in the industry.
The cover is made from polyester and rayon. I found the cover to be comfortable and pleasing to the touch.
First Impression & Overnight Test (Firmness, Feel, & Support)
My first impression was focused on the strong off-gassing. The product is certified to be free of toxic materials so I wasn’t worried about toxicity but I should warn you that there is a strong odor when you first unbox the product. It quickly improved though and by the week mark, the smell was gone.
The sleeping surface is on the firmer side but I think it would still work for side sleepers. The support was also great. When I started my trial run, I had been dealing with some lower back pain. But after a few days, the pain was gone. Also, the product delivered on its claim to keep me cool throughout the entire night. At the end of my assessment, I was convinced that it’s one of the best in its price range.
Sinkage, Motion Transfer, & Temperature
Because the Tuft and Needle is on the firmer side, sinkage is minimal. One thing I did notice during my Tuft and Needle mattress review is that the firmness is identical between the center of the mattress and the edges. It’s uniform throughout, making the mattress more comfortable.
I noticed that motion transfer was minimal during my Tuft and Needle mattress review. If you’re tired of your partner’s movements waking you up, the Tuft and Needle design can help.
During my Tuft and Needle mattress review, I was continuously impressed with the temperature regulation. I was used to waking up hot and sweaty from previous mattresses but this never happened during my Tuft and Needle mattress review.
Firmness and support
Based on my Tuft and Needle mattress review, I would classify the Tuft and Needle as a 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale, with 10 being the firmest. The support is some of the best I’ve experienced at this price point.
There were some features of this product that really stuck out during my trial run. First, while the sleeping surface is definitely classified as firm, it’s not overly firm. There’s still a soft and comfortable element to it. The bed slept cool and provided exceptional pressure relief. There’s no risk to conducting your own trial period, thanks to the 100-night trial and free return policy, so you can check out these features for yourself.
How Does It Compare?
Let’s take a look at some of the competition:
I wouldn’t suggest a product I don’t believe in. While these are all great options, my review that convinced me that simple is sometimes best. The price is right and the comfort level is just about perfect.
At its price point, I can’t think of many other product that beats the product I trial tested. It left me impressed with the new company. The sleeping surface is on the firmer side so if you tend to sleep on your back or stomach, it’s definitely worth looking into conducting your own trial period in the near future.
