The Solay mattress is a hybrid mattress that combines foam layers and pocketed coils for maximum comfort and support. Will it be a good match for you? Read further for my full Solay mattress review.

You Might Want To Pick The Solay If:

  • You Are A Side Sleeper– With its soft foam layers on top, the Solay contours to your body, relieving pressure on shoulders, hips, and knees.
  • You Don’t Like The Feeling Of Getting “Stuck” In Your Mattress– The foam layers recover quickly, giving pressure relief without you sinking in too much.
  • You Want A Longer Lasting Mattress– Because of its durable construction, if you are looking for a long-term investment, the Solay could be right for you.

You Might Not Want To Pick The Solay If:

  • You Are A Back Or Stomach Sleeper– The softer top layers may not provide enough support for back or stomach sleepers.
  • You Like A Firmer Mattress– The Solay is softer than average and might not be a good fit if you prefer more support.
  • You Want That Classic Memory Foam Sinking Feel– The Solay’s foam layers recover very quickly, so you won’t experience that slow compression found with regular memory foam.

Construction Overview

Here is a breakdown of what you can expect in the construction of this mattress:

  • The mattress is 11″ tall.
  • The cover is made from TENCEL. This thin fabric regulates temperature and allows you to feel the next layers fairly well.
  • The next layer is 1” of cooling gel foam with pretty fast recovery.
  • Next is 2” of Energex foam. This recovers faster than most memory foam and reduces motion transfer.
  • A 1” support layer is found above the 6” of pocketed steel spring coils. The coils give extra support to the heavier parts of your body where you feel the most pressure.
  • The base layer is 1” of foundational foam.

Construction Takeaways

  • The Solay is available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King.
  • The top layers are soft and, if you weigh above average, you may press down and reach the coil system, making the mattress feel firmer overall.
  • The top two layers of foam are designed to recover quickly so you won’t have trouble getting out of bed.
  • The pocketed coil system lends a level of support and contouring while giving relief at pressure points.
  • The coil system is also designed to increase airflow. Together with the breathable TENCEL cover, this makes for a cooler sleep experience than you would get with a pure memory foam mattress.

Firmness/Feel

The Solay gives a nice foam feel but prevents me from sinking in and feeling “stuck.” Pressing hard, I can feel the support of the coil system. Still, with its foam top layers, the overall feel is softer than average.

When I sleep on my side, I feel great pressure relief in key areas like my shoulders, hips, and knees. However, on my stomach and back, I do feel my hips sinking in because of this softness.

Motion Isolation

With its hybrid design of pocketed coils and memory foam, I expected the Solay to perform well. As you can see in the video, there is a little motion transfer but, overall, the isolation is a little bit above average. This makes the Solay a solid choice for couples.

Edge Support

The pocketed coil system features a reinforced edge, so I don’t feel like I’m going to fall off. This makes this mattress ideal if you sleep with a partner or prefer sleeping toward the edge. You can see the great edge support in the picture below.

What Makes This Mattress Stand Out

  • It combines the softness of memory foam with the support of coils.
  • The fast recovering Energex and cooling gel foam gives pressure relief without the feeling of getting stuck.
  • The pocketed coil system gives extra pressure relief under the heavier parts of your body.
  • The very durable construction means this mattress will be long-lasting.

Overall

There are a lot of nice aspects to this mattress, and those looking for a durable investment should enjoy the Solay. Side sleepers should find comfort from its foam top layers, while side and back sleepers may want to look for something firmer. Overall, I was impressed with this mattress.

The mattress is made in the USA and features a 101-night trial period and a 15-year limited warranty.
