Polysleep Mattress Firmness and Feel
When most people begin shopping for a new mattress, the first thing they want to know is, “What does it feel like?” So, let’s take a moment to really investigate Polysleep’s firmness and feel.
How Firm is the Polysleep?
The Polysleep mattress feels slightly firmer than average, coming in at a 7/10 on our scale. For reference, 6.5/10 is the industry standard for medium-firm mattresses. Because this bed contains viscoelastic hybrid foam, it doesn’t feel especially soft. This, paired with the strong frame, makes the mattress feel extra supportive.
Sleeping On The Polysleep
The Polysleep mattress provides plenty of lumbar support, especially for back sleepers. Because it feels slightly firmer than average, it could work well for heavier people as well.
Side sleepers, too, should feel plenty of pressure relief and support on this mattress. Stomach sleepers, on the other hand, will need something a bit firmer. Unless you are especially lightweight, you’ll likely feel your hips sink into the top foam layer. This could lead to lower back pain over time.
What Does the Polysleep Feel Like?
Even though it’s an all-foam mattress, the Polysleep doesn’t feel especially slow-moving. Instead, it has a responsive foam feel. When you press your hand into the top layer, the foam immediately springs back into place.
This also means it’s easy to move around on top of this mattress. Heavier people may sink into the comfort layers a bit, but it doesn’t have the “quicksand” feel like many other memory foam mattresses do.
Average Weight Sleepers – 130lbs – 230lbs
Average weight sleepers should feel well supported on the Polysleep mattress, especially when back and side sleeping. The top layer contains hybrid foam, which creates ample pressure relief. And because the mattress has a supportive base layer, average weight sleepers won’t sink through the bed or “bottom out.”
Average weight stomach sleepers, in general, won’t get the proper support on the Polysleep mattress. It’s possible that folks who weigh closer to 130lbs will feel decent hip support. However, most stomach sleepers may notice lower back pain with use.
Heavyweight Sleepers – Over 230lbs
The Polysleep mattress should work well for heavier back and side sleepers. The strong base layer and supportive edges help prevent people from sinking straight through the comfort layers. Those who weigh more than 300lbs, however, may feel this bed isn’t quite thick enough. Instead, people in this category should look for one of the best mattresses for heavy people.
We don’t recommend the Polysleep mattress for heavier stomach sleepers. This bed just isn’t firm enough to help sleepers maintain the correct alignment throughout the night.
Lightweight Sleepers – Under 130lbs
Lightweight sleepers should feel comfortable in all three sleeping positions. The foam layer gently contours the body, while the support layer creates an optimal firmness level. Even stomach sleepers should feel the necessary support on this mattress.
Polysleep Mattress Construction
Ready to see what this mattress is made of? Let’s take a look at its construction!
Polysleep’s breathable cover isn’t just soft – it’s also liquid repellent! If you accidentally spill a cup of coffee on the bed, the liquid won’t immediately seep into the mattress. To make things even easier, this cover is machine washable. It’s especially easy to keep this mattress feeling fresh and clean.
Underneath the cover, you’ll find Polysleep’s ventilated hybrid foam. This material feels more breathable than typical memory foam, so it doesn’t trap heat easily. Worried about bacteria and dust? You can rest easy knowing that Polysleep’s antimicrobial foam helps keep your bed clean.
Next, you’ll find a thin transition layer. This foam section acts as a barrier between the comfort and support layers.
For support, the Polysleep mattress has a high-density foam base layer. This section acts as a built-in box spring, so you don’t even need to purchase one.
But what really sets Polysleep mattresses apart is its proprietary support frame. This strong border prevents the bed from sinking over time, and it makes the mattress extremely durable.
The Polysleep mattress is 10” tall.

Polysleep Mattress Performance
There’s still so much to learn about the Polysleep mattress. Now let’s check out its cooling features, motion transfer, durability, and more.
Sleeping Hot or Cold
Thanks to its ventilated foam, the Polysleep mattress sleeps much cooler than traditional memory foam mattresses. This material also feels responsive, so you won’t sink deeply into the mattress and trap body heat. If you’re a hot sleeper, this mattress should promote airflow and keep you cool.
RELATED: Best Cooling Mattresses
All-foam mattresses tend to isolate motion well, and the Polysleep is no exception. If you share a bed with someone, you shouldn’t notice your partner’s movements when they switch sleeping positions in the night.
Polysleep has a proprietary edge support system that works exceptionally well. When you sit or rest near the side of the bed, you should feel quite secure and stable. This also makes the Polysleep a great mattress for couples, because you can use the entire surface of the bed.
Thanks to its high-density support layer and built-in frame, this mattress should have a long lifespan. We expect it to last 7-10 years.
When you first open a bed-in-a-box mattress, it’s common to notice a slight chemical odor. We smelled this when we unboxed the Polysleep, but it faded away after about 48 hours.
When testing the Polysleep, we didn’t notice any noise coming from the bed. Because this mattress doesn’t contain innersprings, we don’t expect it to become noisy as the years go on.
Sexual partners typically want mattresses that feel bouncy and responsive. While the Polysleep doesn’t contain coils, it does have responsive foam at the top. For this reason, we think this could be a good mattress for sex.

Now that you know all about Polysleep’s performance features, firmness, and feel, it’s time to look at the company polices. Below, we’ve outlined the brand’s warranty information, sleep trial period, return policy, and more.
Polysleep mattresses are backed by a 10-year warranty.

If you aren’t satisfied with the Polysleep mattress during the trial period, you can return it for a full refund.
Common Polysleep Mattress Complaints
Most customers found the Polysleep mattress brought a good balance of comfort and support. However, like all things, this mattress may not work for everyone. The most common complaints we have seen involve the bed’s firmness level. Because this mattress feels slightly firmer than average, some people wanted more plushness. However, thanks to their 100-night sleep trial, returning the mattress is a breeze.
How Does The Polysleep Compare To Other Mattresses?
You never want to buy the first mattress you learn about. It’s always smart to take the time to consider other brands on the market. Let’s take a moment to see how the Polysleep compares to two other popular mattress models: The Polysleep Zephyr and the Casper Original.
Polysleep Vs. Zephyr Mattress
As Polysleep’s most luxurious mattress model, the Zephyr has a few added bells and whistles. First of all, this mattress has advanced cooling features. Instead of the baseline ventilated foam, this bed contains GelFlex Plus foam. This material helps you warm up when you feel cold and cool off when you feel hot.
Additionally, the Zephyr mattress has zoned support. This means it feels firmer around your hips and helps sleepers maintain the correct spinal alignment throughout the night.
These two beds also differ when it comes to firmness. The Zephyr feels slightly softer than the Polysleep, coming in at the industry standard 6.5/10. But because the Zephyr has more advanced features, it does cost a bit more than the original Polysleep mattress.
Who Should Get The Polysleep Mattress
- People who prefer a firmer bed
- Those who want to save some money
Who Should Get The Zephyr Mattress
- Those who want a bed with zoned support
- Especially hot sleepers

Polysleep Vs. Casper
Casper is one of America’s most famous bed-in-a-box companies, so let’s see how it compares to Canada’s beloved mattress brand.
Both mattress feel like a 7/10 on our firmness scale, so they work well for most back and side sleepers. Both beds also contain ventilated foam, which helps with cooling. These two models also have a responsive foam feel.
The Casper mattress, however, contains a zoned support system. It feels firmer in some places and softer in others, so it works well for people who experience back pain. Because the Casper has this additional feature, it does cost a little bit more than the Polysleep.
Who Should Get The Polysleep?
- People who want to save some money
- Those who don’t need a lot of extra features
Who Should Get The Casper?
- People who suffer from back pain
- Those who need additional lumbar support
