  • On top is a True Tufted™ Cashmere Top, which features hand-sewn tufts and has a Eurotop feel.
  • The first layer is 0.39″ (1 cm) of gel-infused memory foam.
  • The next two layers together comprise 1.77″ (4.5 cm) of quilted memory foam.
  • A 0.39″ layer (1 cm) of natural latex breaks up the memory foam layers.
  • Memory foam layering continues with 1.97″ (5 cm) of “Dreamplush” supporting memory foam, then a 0.59″ (1.5 cm) layer of super dense, super soft memory foam.
  • The thickest layer is a 7.87″ (20 cm) layer of individually pocketed “BestRest” coils that come in two levels of resistance. The coils are strategically placed in five comfort zones to ensure the right kind of support for different parts of your body.
  • At the base is 1.6″ (5 cm) of high-density, super soft memory foam base.

Bear Construction

  • Bear has a cover made with Celliant, a fiber used in some athletic clothes. Celliant incorporates thermoactive minerals said to convert radiant body heat into infrared energy, which the fiber then sends back into the body. These infrared rays are thought to have positive effects on the body.
  • The first layer of the mattress is a memory foam made with graphite gel. The gel is intended to help better disperse heat and prevent you from sleeping hot.
  • The middle layer is a bouncy, responsive foam. This will prevent you from having the feeling of getting stuck in the mattress.
  • A dense layer of foam forms the base.
