Yogabed mattress review
This post was last updated on July 9th, 2019
Yogabed is a newly set up online mattress company, has no relationship with yoga, but their goal is to make their customer feeling great and refreshed after a good night’s sleep.
But Yogabed is based on their own “Yoga Comfort System“, which is developed by a small team of mattress manufacturing experts, with over 40 years of experience in the industry. But Yogabed’s core is foam, not memory foam, Yoga bed is actually a foam mattress, a very special foam.
What we need to know is that all of the memory mattresses on the market, such as Loom&Leaf or Leesa mattress, only part of mattress layers are memory foam or contain memory foam, there is no 100% memory foam mattress on the market.
Actually, pure memory foam cannot be made into a mattress, all of your body will sink into it, with no bounce back, good experience?
Structure of Yogabed
Yogabed is made up of 4 foam layers, totally 10” high, all of these 4 layers called together Yoga comfort system, which can provide an incredible sleeping experience, of course, not for everyone, just for the one who is suitable for it.
- Top layer, Yoga instant response foam, 1” high, this amazing foam was designed to retain the best qualities of memory foam, latex foam and gel foam, all-in-one. It offers great pressure relief, unbelievable support and it sleeps cool, it reacts and recovers its shape as you move. It’s the mattress that adapts to your body, not your body adapting to the mattress, to help eliminate the sinking, trapped feeling created by traditional memory foam.
- Second layer, Yoga gel layer, 2” high, one common problem of foam mattress, especially memory foam mattress, people will feel hot, one of the common solutions of the mattress industry is to add gel into foam, which can provide a cooling sleep experience. This is helpful for most people.
- Third layer, breathable foam base, this support layer is also the thickest layer of the whole mattress, 6” high, traditional mattress here are made up of innerspring, the same usage, just to provide support. One of the highlights I need to mention is Yogabed’s base foam layer is breathable, the naturally cool and responsive breathable foam base ensures 95% better airflow and three times better heat and moisture wicking than traditional memory foam.
- Fourth layer, support base, 1” high. Which is also to provide support, and better combination with your foundations or boxspring. They don’t require a sheet of plywood be placed on your foundation as many other brands require due to the unique construction of a Yogabed.
Firmness, Comfort, & Support
Firmness is a very important factor when people buying a mattress. If you’re a total stomach sleeper, and you buy an extremely soft memory foam mattress, all of your body will sink into it and you can’t breathe anymore.
Yogabed has only one model, one firmness scale. Official claim their mattress is suitable for everyone, I don’t think there is mattress suitable for everyone. Their official firmness scale is 6.5-7/10 (10 is hardest). This is quite a personal preference, just for reference.
From the feedback we collected from real consumers, it’s even more firm. Maybe 7.5-8/10 on the firmness scale. This is unacceptable for some, especially the one who are totally side sleepers and lighter ones (less than 120 pounds). For big guys or the one who prefers back sleeping or stomach sleeping, user satisfaction is good.
One important tip is you can dial 1-844-333-3709 to contact with Yogabed’s customer service, tell them you that the mattress is too firm for you, and they will send you a free mattress topper, with that I believe you can get a perfect sleep. Yogabed is a well-designed mattress, they can provide good support and durability.back to menu ↑
Sex and Motion Transfer
Good news is Yogabed is very friendly for sex. When you’re making love the bounce back really helps, and if you sink into it and hard to move, it would be horrible. Benefit from Yoga comfort system, Yogabed can provide a cool, productive experience, so I claim it one of the best mattresses for sex.
Different from innerspring mattress such as Saatva, the foam-based mattress did a better job on motion transfer control, your partner can hardly feel any movement from your side. I can rate it as B+, not as amazing as a thick memory foam mattress.

Cover and Free pillow
This is another advantage of Yogabed, their cover is removable. For most mattresses, you can’t remove the cover, or it will damage the foam.
Every Yogabed mattress has a removable, machine washable zip-n-Wash cover with Easy Align zipper, making it easy to keep a super clean and fresh sleep environment. You wouldn’t sleep in the same unwashed pajamas for 10 years, so why sleep on the same unwashed mattress cover.
Besides free mattress topper(if you ask), they provide 2 free standard-size Yogabed pillows (1 with twin, twin XL) on every mattress buying, Yogabed is the only mattress that comes with Yogabed pillows, which use the same technology found in Yogabed to provide an incredible level of comfort.back to menu ↑
Off-gassing when new open
Generally, foam-based mattresses will have off-gassing issue. This is caused by the manufacturing process of foam layer. They need to combine several foam layers together, the period of off-gassing depends on the foam thickness, material, and chemical they use.
Yogabed is made in the USA (manufactured in Georgia)
There is a slight smell to Yogabed, kind of like a new car, but it is much less than what you smell with other beds since we compress the bed when we ship it to you. When you open the bed it will renew with fresh, clean air. The smell will dissipate over 2-3 days.back to menu ↑
Shipment, Trial Period, Warranty and Returns
The shipment will be arranged within 2 business days and shipping times range from 3-10 business days.
Similar to Casper, but better, the risk-free trial period is 101 nights, while Casper is 100 nights. They require you to give your body a minimum of 30 days to adjust to your new Yogabed.
The Warranty is the same, both are 10 years. Same as other online mattress company.
If you are not satisfied after the first 30 days and up to 101 days, email [email protected] and they’ll arrange to have it picked up, at no charge to you of course. Please note that only one free trial and return is permissible.back to menu ↑
Compare with other online mattresses
As a 10″ mattress, I think the price below is expensive, I can’t find any reason why Yogabed is more expensive than Leesa, I believe Leesa is a better memory foam mattress brand who has longer history and more returned customers.
Another better choice is the Awara bed if you prefer a memory foam mattress. It’s thicker, more comfortable and has better warranty and longer free trial period. If you prefer the firm feeling from Yogabed, you may take a look at Bear mattress, this is designed for athletes, can give you awesome support and very quick recovery. Yogabed is not bad, but maybe not the best choice for most customer.
If we extend the topic, we don’t just talk about memory foam, Ghostbed is another good choice, this is a hybrid mattress (latex+memory foam), it’s very similar to Casper but cheaper and better (structure, warranty, free trial).
If you like pure latex mattress, Helix or Brooklyn bedding should also be put on your shortlist as well. They are cheaper, but more comfortable maybe. Don’t forget to drop by our best memory foam mattress list to see other recommendations. I believe you can find what you need there.
Yogabed has a lot of advantage, their only Yoga Comfort System, removable cover, free pillow, free mattress topper(if need), and the interesting story with Casper. Consider buying a Yogabed mattress if you
- Prefer a cooling sleeping experience
- Prefer the feeling of bounce back when sleeping or making love
- Like the free gift from Yogabed
- Back or stomach sleepers prefer medium to firm on the firmness scale
- Yoga comfort system, provide comfort,relax, cool
