The Switch mattress is a bed-in-a-box option that takes customization to a whole new level.  You can switch the firmness on each side of the bed on the fly by flipping the foam inside, which makes for a pretty interesting experience.

Overall I liked the Switch mattress, and had a good experience sleeping on it, though I had a few complaints as well.  Read on for my full Switch mattress review.

You will love the Switch mattress if you…

  • Want customization – Switch allows each side of the bed to be switched to a different firmness (soft, medium, or firm).
  • Are worried about motion transfer – this mattress is memory foam and split, so it provides essentially no motion transfer issues
  • Want a great value – this mattress is made by a regional mattress store player, and is sold primarily online (and in their showrooms).  They are taking big advantage of the direct-to-consumer model with their pricing.

Switch Mattress Reviews

You may not like the Switch mattress if you…

  • Don’t want customization – Switch is designed for great customization for couples, but if you don’t plan on customizing, you won’t get many of the benefits of this mattress.
  • You have average preferences – if you are not very particular about the firmness of your mattress and are fine with an average firmness level, the versatility of the Switch again may not be attractive to you.

Firmness and Feel

As you can see, you can easily switch the mattress to different firmness settings.  Shown is the medium and soft options.

I’d guess 90% of sleepers will go for the average firmness setting, but some side sleepers may opt for the soft setting and some stomach sleepers may opt for the firm setting.

Motion Transfer Test

The Switch mattress is both quality memory foam as well as a split mattress, so as expected it does very well in the motion transfer test.  I think for a variety of reasons this mattress would be a good mattress for couples.

Construction

The exact order of the foam layers will vary based on which firmness option you have set up on the mattress.  For the softest setting, the layers will be:

  • 4 inches of gel memory foam
  • 2 inches of transition foam
  • 4.5 inches of high density support foam

Switch mattress cover

For the firmest option, all 4 inches of gel memory foam will go on the bottom.  For the medium setting, there will be 2 inches of gel memory foam on the bottom and 2 inches on the top.

Other things to note

  • Switch mattress is made in the USA
  • It has a 110 night sleep trial (free returns in this period)
  • Free shipping and returns
  • 15 year limited warranty

Final Recommendation

The switch mattress is very interesting compared to other mattresses I’ve reviewed. The customization option is very unique, and though it may not appeal to everyone, I think for many people wary of buying online this mattress is an incredible option.

If you’ve made it this far, I’d say Switch is definitely worth a try.
