Endy is a bed-in-a-box mattress that quickly became popular in Canada, then expanded to the US. The company appears to be leveraging the initial success in Canada to the US.
The mattress has a foam comfort layer, a very cool cover, and (in my opinion) is a bit softer than average. For that reason, I think it could be a good choice for side sleepers but perhaps not the best fit for people who sleep only on their back or stomach. Its price point makes it a very affordable option for more people as well.
Overall I really liked Endy, though I had a few complaints as well (see how Endy compares HERE). Read about my experience in my full Endy mattress review.
You will love Endy if you…
- Want great comfort – with a nice foam comfort layer, Endy stands out in that it has a nice plush feel
- Want a slightly softer mattress – whether you are a side sleeper or just prefer a slightly softer mattress, Endy will deliver
- Want great value – Endy is shipped straight from the factory to your door, saving on a lot of costs associated with selling a mattress (some of which are passed on to the consumer)
- Love Canadian made – Endy is manufactured in Toronto, so it’s a short trip from the factory to your door (relative to where most mattresses are made) if you’re in Canada or the US
You may not like Endy if you…
- Want a firm mattress – the Endy mattress is definitely slightly softer than average, so if you are interested in a firm mattress, Endy probably won’t be the best fit
- Are a stomach sleeper – generally I recommend that stomach sleepers go for a firmer mattress. Of course it always comes down to your preference
Feel and Firmness
Endy has a great feel, more plush than most mattresses of this thickness. I’d put the firmness at a 5.5 out of 10, slightly softer than average.
You can see that the mattress is memory foam like, so a little slow to respond (not a bad thing, just something to note for your preferences).
Endy Sleep Construction
Endy is manufactured in Toronto, Canada and starts with a visually appealing hypoallergenic stretch-knit cover (kind of feels like an optical illusion)!
The mattress is 10 inches thick in total and consists of the following foam layers:
- Comfort layer: 2 inches of 3 lb foam (infused with cooling gel)
- Transition layer: 3 inches of 1.8 lb soft support foam
- Base layer: 5 inches of 1.8 lb firm support foam
I like that Endy clearly discloses their foam densities and is very transparent about their materials.
Motion transfer Test
Endy has a top layer of foam that is memory foam-like, so we expect it to perform very well in the motion transfer test below:
As you can see, the object is barely disturbed as I really push on the foam nearby, one of the best performances of motion transfer of all the mattresses I have reviewed.
Endy vs Casper
Endy is most often compared to Casper since they are both popular bed-in-a-box options available in Canada. I think both mattresses are of great quality at a similar price point, and I enjoyed sleeping on both. I would make the decision based on two factors, foam type and firmness.
Foam type – Endy’s top layer is memory foam-like, and Casper’s top layer is latex-like foam. As a result, Casper has a little more “spring” to the mattress, while Endy has a more traditional memory foam feel.
Firmness – I found both mattresses to be on the softer side, but Endy is still slightly softer than Casper.
Other things to note
- Endy is made in Toronto, Canada (ships to the US as well)
- They offer a 100 night sleep trial and 10 year warranty
- They also offer a pillow that I am anxious to try!
I really enjoyed sleeping on the Endy mattress, for a side sleeper like myself I think it’s a great option (though it may be too soft for stomach sleepers). I like the transparency and brand, and think at the price point it offers a very good value.
