Who Might Want To Pick The Linenspa…

  • Those who are looking for a value mattress- If someone wants a comfortable mattress that will not cost them too much money upfront, the Linenspa should be a good choice. It is very affordable when compared to competing Amazon mattresses and is an excellent value overall.
  • People who need a mattress for a lightweight person- The Linenspa should be a great match for lighter people, kids, and teenagers, because it is a simple mattress that should be supportive for people of this size. In addition, the mattress could be a good fit for the guest room where the shoppers don’t want to break the bank.
  • Stomach sleepers- The Linenspa has a thinner comfort layer, and because of this, stomach sleepers should mostly feel the support of the coils. The hips should be properly supported so the spine is in proper neutral alignment.
  • Light- or medium-weight back sleepers- If someone isn’t too heavy, the mattress could also work for back sleeping. People should feel some comfort and contouring from the top comfort layer and then the support of the coils beneath that.

Who Might Not Want To Pick The Linenspa…

  • Larger people- If someone is a heavier person, the Linenspa probably won’t be supportive enough for them. People might press right through the mattress and feel the floor potentially. If someone is larger, they should consider a thicker mattress with more supportive layers.
  • Side sleepers- If someone sleeps primarily on their side, the Linenspa probably isn’t the best match. The comfort layer is only 1.5” thick, so side sleepers might press through that and feel some pressure on their shoulders and hips. Side sleepers will want to look for a mattress with a thicker comfort layer without question.
  • People who want a long-term investment- While the Linenspa is very affordable, it is not the most durable mattress. The components aren’t really premium, so they might start to weaken and sag more quickly than those people would find in a more luxury mattress. If people want something to last them for a good amount of time, they most likely will have to pay more.

Construction Overview

  • The mattress is 8” tall and features a simplified construction with a foam layer and support coils.
  • The cover is thin and soft, and it is quilted with memory foam for additional pressure relief and body contouring.
  • Then there is 1.5” of comfort foam for added softness and pressure relief.
  • The base is 6.5” of steel coils, which are highly supportive, durable, and breathable.

Construction Takeaways

  • Overall, the Linenspa features a simple, streamlined construction that keeps the cost of the mattress down overall.
  • Given that the mattress only has 1.5” of foam in the comfort layer, the Linenspa is a better match for back and stomach sleepers. The mattress will probably not offer the best pressure relief for side sleepers because the comfort layer is not thick enough.
  • While the memory foam is slower-moving, it isn’t too thick. When people add that together with the coils, the mattress should have a responsive, hybrid feel. People shouldn’t be getting stuck in the mattress and it will be easy to switch positions.

Firmness And Feel

In terms of firmness, I thought the Linenspa was close to a 7.5/10, definitely firmer than average. There is a very soft comfort foam layer on top, but it is only 1.5″ thick. This soft top layer, combined with the firm coils, makes the mattress just firmer than average.

Linenspa

Here is how it felt in different sleeping positions:

  • While lying on my back, I feel nice on the Linenspa, as my hips sink in just the right amount, and the memory foam adds some nice contouring. I feel well supported overall as a result. Light- and medium-weight back sleepers should find the Linenspa to be a good match.
  • Moving to my side, I am feeling some serious pressure on my shoulders and hips, as I press through the thin comfort layer and hit the coils. Unless they are very light, most side sleepers should have a similar experience on the Linenspa.
  • When I’m on my stomach, the Linenspa is properly supportive, as I mostly feel the coils when I am in this position, and they’re ensuring my hips don’t sink in. I feel like I am in good alignment and well supported.

Overall, the Linenspa has a simple hybrid mattress feel. People get a bit of that balance of comfort and support as well as some bounce. It is a balanced feel, so it shouldn’t be difficult to move around on the mattress.

Motion Transfer

If someone sleeps with a partner, it is definitely important to consider how well their mattress handles motion transfer. Will they feel every move their partner makes on their side of the bed, or will they be sleeping soundly?

To test out the motion transfer on the Linenspa, I first placed a glass of water on top of the mattress. While pushing into the surrounding areas, I did not see too much disturbance in the water. Also, when I laid on the mattress and asked Marten to move around on the other side, I barely felt his movements.

I would say the Linenspa isolates motion well and could be a goodmattress for couples who don’t want to be disturbed by their partner’s movements.

Edge Support

If someone sleeps with a partner or simply wants to use all of their mattress, it’s also worth thinking about edge support. When sitting or lying down near the edge, will people be secure or will they feel like they’re going to fall off?

While sitting near the edge of the Linenspa, the foam collapses quite a bit and I don’t feel very secure in this position. Also, when I lie down near the edge, I feel like I might roll off the mattress.

In the end, the Linenspa does not feature the best edge support.

Marten’s Take

Marten is a staff writer for us and has a much different body type: He is 6’7″ and weighs about 230 lb; I am 5’9″ and 160 lb. Here is what he thought about the mattress and how appropriate it is for heavier sleepers:

Joe said this mattress was a 7.5/10, and I thought it was closer to an 8/10. I am a larger person, and the comfort layer on this mattress is pretty thin. I press right through that layer, and I am mostly feeling the coils on this mattress.

Here is how it felt in different sleeping positions:

  • While lying on my back, the mattress is an okay match for me. However, I am mostly feeling coils and not really feeling lumbar support from the foam on top. I am dropping through the mattress.
  • When I move to my side, I am feeling too much pressure on my shoulders and hips. I press through the top layer and feel firm coils on my shoulders and hips.
  • On my stomach, I do feel supported overall and think it is a decent match.

If someone is a heavier stomach sleeper, it is possible the Linenspa could work for them. If someone is a heavier back or side sleeper, they should look elsewhere.

Marten’s experience is what I expected overall. He is a larger person, so he presses right through the comfort layer. While he gets what he needs on his stomach, the mattress is much too firm for him when he is on his back and side. All in all, the Linenspa is not the best match for heavier people who need extra support.

Unboxing This Mattress

The Linenspa is a bed-in-a-box mattress, which means it will come compressed and shipped straight to the shopper’s door.

People will want to begin by removing the rolled up Linenspa mattress from its box. Then, preferably with another person’s assistance, they should position the roll on their bed.

Carefully cut away the first layers of plastic until the still-compact mattress can be laid down flat. Then, pierce through the final layer of plastic and the Linenspa will expand.

Simply clear away the excess plastic and allow the mattress to breathe and fully expand.

What Makes The Linenspa Stand Out?

  • It is a comfortable mattress sold for a very low price, an excellent overall value.
  • The Linenspa should be a great match for lightweight people, children, and teens.
  • The mattress should offer nice support for stomach sleeping.
  • Light- and medium-weight back sleepers should also find the mattress to be a good match.

Overall

In the end, the Linenspa should be a nice choice for lighter people who want to save money on a comfortable mattress. Heavier people and those who want something for side sleeping might want to look elsewhere.

The mattress comes with a 10-year warranty. The company also offers a 10″ hybrid model as well as a 12″ Gel Memory Foam hybrid and a latex hybrid.  Consumers should take a look through this review multiple times, assess their own needs and preferences, and then make a more informed decision.
