We like to produce videos to go along with our reviews. We just think that they do a better job of showing things like feel, softness/firmness, and pressure. Here’s our video review of the WinkBeds GravityLux mattress.
Honest GravityLux Mattress Video Review
As you’d expect, there’s a lot to know about the GravityLux Mattress, previously known as the MemoryLux mattress—more than we could fit into the video. That’s the reason we have the rest of this review. Keep reading for more details on this bed!
GravityLUX Mattress Price And Coupon Code
Even though we consider the WinkBeds GravityLux mattress a luxury bed, the price isn’t outrageous. It’s more expensive than your average bed-in-a-box mattress, but it’s comparable to the price of the GhostBed Luxe mattress that’s made with memory foam. The size options include twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and CA king. A queen size GravityLux mattress will run you about $1,600, and the king and CA king will cost you around $1,800.
We should have a discount for you, and you should find it on the right hand side of this page. If you don’t see one, feel free to head over to the company’s website to check current prices and double check if they’re running any promotions.
Our main complaint is that the price is pretty much the same as their flagship WinkBed mattress, which contains foam and a thick layer of individually wrapped coils. Hybrid mattresses are beds containing both materials, and they’re usually more expensive than all-foam mattresses. So we were a little surprised to see these two beds priced the same.
GravityLux Materials And Construction
If WinkBed is going to claim their mattress as “the next generation of memory foam,” we expected the construction to be different than anything we’ve seen before. And for the most part, we think it was.
The entire bed is 12” thick, with the following layers:
- A bottom layer made with 1.8lb dense ATLAS core foam, a type of proprietary foam the company made themselves to ensure their mattress was durable and impervious to sagging
- A “Zoned Progression Foam” layer meant to provide support in five targeted areas with various firmness levels to suit the different parts of your body; firmer by your lumbar, lower back, and hips, but softer in the shoulders and legs
- The third layer is made with patented AirCell foam which contains billions (yes, we just said billions, that wasn’t a typo) of air capsules which act as tiny little cushions that absorb shock and release air as pressure is applied
All of the foam inside Gravity Lux is CertiPUR-US certified, which means they are manufactured without ozone depleters, flame retardants, mercury, and other chemicals you really don’t want to sleep on every night.
Mattress Cover On The GravityLux
The cover on GravityLux is made with Tencel, and derived from Eucalyptus trees found in forests that are Forest Stewardship Council-certified, meaning everything is done sustainably. The material is OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Class 1 certified, meaning it’s 100% safe, even for kids. It’s also more eco-friendly than other materials like cotton, because it needs 10-20% less water to make.
As far as the look and feel goes, it’s definitely up to standard with the rest of the WinkBeds GravityLux. It’s flat white, bright, fresh, and expensive looking — not to mention soft-to-the-touch. Earlier in this post we said it belongs in a four star hotel, and the aesthetically pleasing cover has a little something to do with that.
The cover isn’t removable or machine washable, so you’re going to have to spot clean if you get a little coffee or wine on your mattress. To do this, dab the spot with a mild detergent and water. Try not to get it too wet, and wait until the mattress is completely dry to put your sheets back on.
GravityLux Mattress Firmness and Feel
We’re gonna do our best to describe the firmness of the WinkBeds GravityLux since you can’t touch it yourself. We think it’s a combination of soft, fluffy, yet supportive. As you can see below, it’s available in three different firmness levels.
We received their “Medium” firmness model, which we also rated as a true medium on our scale. You can also choose a “Soft,” which we rated as medium-soft, or a “Firm” model that we rated medium-firm.
We would describe the feel of the GravityLux mattress as memory foam (not much of a shocker) with a fluffy pillow top. It kind of reminds us of the Loom & Leaf mattress actually, but slightly softer. To be completely honest, we thought it was a little underwhelming for how much the site seemed to hype up the mattress. But with that said, it’s still a pretty comfortable bed — just a little boring.
One thing we were surprised by was GravityLux’s quick responsiveness. Usually, memory foam is pretty slow to bounce back after pressure is applied, but that wasn’t the case here for GravityLux. It really didn’t have that deep viscous feel we’re used to. This is tremendously comfortable bed.
So we think it could even be a good mattress for folks who feel indifferent towards memory foam mattresses, since the feeling isn’t very prominent in this bed.
Suitable GravityLux Mattress Sleeper Types
Since there are a range of firmness levels to choose from, we think that any range of sleepers can find a GravityLux mattress that would suit them best.
- Side Sleepers
Generally, side sleepers should go for a softer model or one that provides extra pressure relief to the sides of the body, or in the middle if you have a heavy body type.
- Back and Stomach Sleepers
Back or stomach sleepers should probably consider a medium to firm mattress to ensure they receive the support they need to keep their backs from sagging into the bed at night.
- Combo Sleeper
For combo sleepers or folks who share a bed with a partner with a different sleeper type, medium is always a safe pick because it’s a nice compromise between supportive and pressure relieving.
GravityLux Mattress Body Type Analysis
- Petite/Average Individuals
Medium to petite individuals can usually get away with any type of mattress they want, including this one.
- Heavy Individuals
We always recommend that folks 250+ lbs seek out a mattress with coils. Coils make a mattress more supportive, durable, and will turn out to be longer lasting. For those of you who are more heavy set, take a look at the flagship WinkBed mattress or our post on the best mattresses for heavy people.
GravityLux Bed Temperature Regulation
We think it’s safe to dub this mattress temperature neutral. If you’re a particularly hot sleeper, no matter your location or your clothing, take a look at our post on the best cooling beds for hot sleepers. To learn more about how we rate temperature, read this.
Is GravityLux A Good Mattress For Couples?
This section goes out to the folks who sleep with a loved one, or perhaps a very large dog.
The GravityLux mattress has passable edge support, but it should be workable for most people. Remember, edge support is only really important if space is limited with your mattress.
For those of you who are extra curious, feel free to read more about edge support here.
It was also pretty great with limiting motion isolation. We had a 6’5 200+ lbs Slumber Yard member roll around the mattress to see if a glass of water would stay steadily on top. As you can see, the results were pretty positive. It didn’t topple over, and the water didn’t even splash around. So overall, we think couples should have a restful sleep throughout the night on GravityLux.
WinkBeds GravityLux Mattress Review Verdict
There are a few things we really like about the WinkBeds GravityLux mattress, including its zoned support construction and impressive response to pressure. The one thing we don’t love is the price compared to Winkbed’s flagship model, we just aren’t sure how to justify it. But if you’re not in the market for a hybrid bed and you have the means to spend around $1,600 on an all-foam bed, we say go for it. It’s comfortable, luxurious, and has a construction we’ve never seen in a memory foam bed.
Thanks for choosing the Slumber Yard, and we encourage you to check out the other mattress reviews we have on our site if you’re interested in learning about other bed-in-a-box mattresses.
- BBB Rating: B

Other WinkBeds Reviews
Comparing The MemoryLux Vs Other Beds
MemoryLux Vs Original WinkBed Mattress
If you’re evaluating prices, the GravityLux is the less expensive bed of the two. Heavier individuals or those requiring extra support will likely enjoy the durable and supportive construction of the original model, which contains a supportive pocketed coil system and micro-coil layer above it.
MemoryLux vs Saatva
Starting with cost, the Saatva Mattress is the less expensive of the two, but not by much. Each brand has varying firmness levels available, with the MemoryLux having an airier, softer mattress version petite and side sleepers will appreciate. Saatva is also more ideal for heavier body types as it has a particularly supportive hybrid construction with back-to-back coils.
