The Different OkiOki Mattress Models
OkiOki makes two hybrid mattresses, meaning they are comprised of a combination of foam and coils. OkiOki also makes two all-foam mattresses that use several layers of foams to achieve the desired effect.
OkiSoft — Just as the name suggests, this is the softest option offered by OkiOki. Using a layer of gel memory foam, which is more porous than regular memory foam, this mattress has a cloud-like feel without trapping too much body heat. The manufacturer places it at a 5/10 or medium-soft to medium on the firmness scale.
OkiEasy — The company’s most popular mattress. It’s similar to the OkiFlex, however, just a tinge but it’s less firm. We still consider it a medium-firm, but it’s more like in between a medium and medium-firm. It also has coils rather than foam in its support core.
OkiFlex — This is OkiOki’s other hybrid mattress. It provides stable yet gentle support with a layer of pocketed coils that are topped with a layer of graphite-infused memory foam. The graphite helps make the foam hold its shape a bit better while still offering the same contouring effects that you’d expect from memory foam. OkiOki says this mattress is a 7/10, or around a medium-firm to firm.
OkiFirm — The firmest option from OkiOki, this all foam mattress uses a few thick layers of high-density and graphite-infused foam to provide firm support that still cradles pressure points effectively. On OkiOki’s firmness scale, they rate this mattress as 8/10, which we’d likely place around true firm.
OkiOki Mattress Pricing
We have seen some mattresses with an even lower price tag than OkiOki–if you wanna check those out try our list of mattresses under $300–but in all honesty, it is hard to find a mattress that is both a good bargain and good quality.
OkiOki has made it a goal to make a high-quality mattress that is still appealing and affordable for the masses. As a memory foam hybrid, OkiOki has a wide variety of competition at all ends of the price spectrum: the Lucid mattress and the Allswell mattress, for example, are only a few hundred dollars; the GhostBed Flex or the Brentwood Home Oceano, on the other hand, could cost you a few thousand.
Here is a look at the pricing breakdown for each available size of the OkiEasy. It’s worth noting that all four of OkiOki’s mattresses have the same pricing, so you can easily choose the model that will be best for you without spending more for it.

OkiOki Mattress Design And Construction
We’ve already mentioned that the OkiEasy is a hybrid mattress, but let’s take a closer look at the details of these layers and how they give the mattress its distinctive feel.
First, the mattress has a 1” base layer of dense polyurethane foam to provide a solid and stable foundation for the coil layer. Around the sides of the mattress, this foam extends up and around the coil system to strengthen the edges and increase the durability of the coils.
We tested the edge support of the mattress to see how well this foam layer works to strengthen the edges and, honestly, it didn’t seem to make much of a difference. The edges were relatively strong and didn’t slope down too much but they didn’t feel particularly sturdy either.
The 5.5” tall pocketed coil system is the second layer of the mattress. Pocketed coils take the innerspring model and improves several features while still offering the same support and durability. By wrapping each 2.3 mm gauge coil in a fabric sleeve, the coils are able to move more independently of one another.
This, coupled with the slow responding memory foam, helps eliminate some motion transfer across the mattress, which is important if you are a light sleeper or have a partner who moves around a lot in their sleep.
On top of the coils, the OkiEasy has two layers of foam. The first layer is 2.5” of a high-density polyurethane foam. This foam is supportive yet contouring and acts as a great transition layer between the coils and the memory foam top layer.
The 2” of memory foam
, gives the top of the mattress that cloud-like squish that fans of memory foam are crazy about. Having a supportive base, like the OkiEasy does, is important with memory foam top layers so that the foam can contour in all the right places without sinking too much.
OkiOki ensures that the materials in its mattresses are high-quality and healthy. The foams are CertiPUR-US certified to ensure they are safe and non-toxic and have been produced with low to no exposure to VOCs, formaldehydes, phthalates
, or other harmful substances. The foams are also approved by OEKO-TEX to be safe for the environment and free from dangerous chemicals.
The OkiOki Cooling Mattress Cover
All 11” of the mattress is surrounded by a unique cover made of a cooling and hypoallergenic ice yarn. The cover feels silky smooth and cool to the touch, which makes it a great option for hot sleepers.
Most beds that we review here at the Slumber Yard are neutral sleeping by default, meaning that they won’t heat you up or cool you down but should keep temperature fairly well regulated. We have found that memory foam is a material that has a tendency to trap body heat so having a cooling cover on a memory foam mattress is a good call by OkiOki to make sure that the mattress will stay actively cool, rather than getting too warm.
The cover is also removable and machine washable. There is a convenient zipper around the bottom of the mattress that allows you to easily remove the cover if it is ever in need of a little TLC. Then you can throw it in the washing machine.
We have seen a few complaints that, because of the slick texture of the cooling cover, some folks have had difficulty keeping their sheets in place. This can be a major pain, so if you have issues with this, we have compiled a few tips to prevent your sheets from slipping.
OkiEasy Mattress Firmness And Feel
The OkiEasy is OkiOki’s second softest mattress and is at a 6/10 on the company’s firmness scale. We would say that the mattress should feel medium to medium-firm to most sleepers.
The soft memory foam top allows sleepers to sink in and have their pressure points cradled by the mattress. The dense poly foam and pocketed coils that bolster the memory foam, on the other hand, ensure you won’t experience too much of that stuck-in-the-mud feeling. There is still plenty of support and a fair bit of bounce because of the coil base.
Coupling coils and memory foam creates an interesting feel for the mattress. The coils provide bounce and responsiveness that will move as you move and adjust the amount of support that you need while the memory foam, which reacts much more slowly, will gently form to the contours of your body once you’ve settled into a comfortable position.
OkiOki Sleeper Type Analysis
Our answer is, most likely. We think that most sleepers should be able to sleep soundly on this mattress, but, as always, there are a few things to keep in mind when deciding if a mattress is right for you. When we talk about feel and firmness, we try to form our opinions based on the average sleeper, but we acknowledge that every sleeper is different.
The first thing to consider is your sleeping style:
Those who sleep on their stomach need a good bit of firmness in their mattress to ensure that their spine stays straight and their bottom doesn’t sag. It is also usually a good idea for stomach sleepers to have pressure relief from the top of their mattress to prevent any tenderness from laying on the more delicate areas of their body. The OkiEasy provides both support and softness for stomach sleepers.
These sleepers also need support and contouring to keep their spine in line. Back sleepers can also usually get away with a slightly less soft mattress as long as it has good support. The coils in the OkiEasy make it a strong and supportive option for back sleepers.
It is important for those who sleep on their side to have a softer mattress that will contour to their pressure points. Laying on your hip and shoulder all night can put a good deal of strain on them, so having a soft surface to alleviate pressure is always a good idea for side sleepers. The memory foam layer of the OkiEasy makes it soft and comforting.
Folks who spend the night switching between sleeping positions are called combination sleepers. Because the mattress is on the medium side of firm, it should offer the right amount of support and pressure relief if you are this type of sleeper. One thing that is worth noting is that memory foam does take a few seconds to respond to your body, so it may take a little bit to get comfortable in a new position as the memory foam adjusts.
It is also good to think about your body type when selecting a mattress because weight can have an effect on the feel of the mattress.
OkiOki Body Type Analysis
Here’s how we think OkiOki accommodates each body type.
Generally those who weigh over 250 lbs should look for a thick mattress with coils that will support their larger frame and will hold up over time. OkiEasy might be a good option for larger folks because of the coil support system. It is possible, however, that heavier people might find the OkiEasy to feel too soft because, often, if you have more body mass you put more pressure on a mattress and therefore might feel a bit like you are sinking into the bed more.
Average To Lighter People
Similarly, those who are especially petite often have a hard time finding a mattress with the right feel for them. Just as those who are heavier can feel like a mattress is softer than average, those who are lighter can experience an opposite effect, and feel like a mattress is too firm. This likely shouldn’t be an issue with the OkiEasy as it has a fluffy memory foam layer that should cradle just about anybody.
OkiOki Mattress Performance Ratings
- Off-gassing: All of the foams used by OkiOki are non-toxic and do not give off any gas. While there could be a slight new mattress smell, it will dissipate within a day or two.
- Durability: OkiOki mattresses come with a 10-year warranty, indicating they have good durability.
- Pressure relief: With its layer of memory foam, the OkiOki mattresses are good at relieving pressure.
- Motion isolation: Even though some OkiOki models have an innerspring coil core, the motion isolation properties of these mattresses is good because of the memory phone layer on top.
- Temperature neutrality: The memory foam construction could lead to some heat retention as memory foam is known for its ability to retain heat. However, OkiOki also covers mattresses with a unique cover made of ice yarn that keeps the mattress actively cool.
- Edge support: Memory foam isn’t well known for its edge support, but the hybrid construction of the OkiOki mattresses provides good edge support.
- Noise: Noise in a mattress is typically caused by innerspring coils. In the case of the OkiOki mattresses the innerspring coils are pocketed, which separates and isolates each coil and eliminates noises.
- Sex: Memory foam isn’t the best choice for couples when they choose to have sex because of the way you sink into it and the motion isolation properties. You’ll find some of this is true for the OkiOki mattress as well, but the innerspring coil construction of the OkiEasy mattress makes it better for sex than all-foam alternatives.

OkiOki Company Policies
OkiOki has some pretty friendly policies for consumers, which is a common practice among online mattress companies.
First things first, when you order your mattress it will ship for free roll-packed in a box that is super easy to open and assemble. Just pull the wrapped up mattress out of the box and unroll it onto your desired bed frame by pulling off the plastic wrap.
Because this mattress has a fair amount of memory foam in it, it may take up to 48 hours to fully expand to its normal shape after being packed up so tightly. We recommend that you allow it a day or two of time to expand before sleeping on it to really get the full feel of the bed, but once it is out of the box you technically should be able to sleep on it without any issue.
Now that you have your bed all set up comes the best part: testing it out. OkiOki gives buyers a full year–365 days–as a risk-free trial period to make sure the bed is right. This means that if you finally realize in January that the bed you bought in May just isn’t doing it for you, you can just get in touch with OkiOki to initiate the “no questions asked” return process. They will fully refund your money and either arrange for the mattress to be recycled or donated to a local charity.
For those who decide to keep their mattress, OkiOki backs all of their beds with a 10 year warranty. Make sure you read up on the warranty via the company’s website so you know what it covers. Ultimately, though these are relatively standard practices in the mattress industry, they really make a difference in the overall ease and convenience of the mattress buying process.
