UPDATE FOR OUR READERS:
Tomorrow Sleep, as of 2019, is no longer selling beds. If you’re looking for a memory foam mattress, make sure to see our review of the Nectar mattress.
Tomorrow Sleep Policy Info
Like most bed-in-a-box companies, Tomorrow Sleep offers free shipping, free returns, a risk-free trial period, and an extended warranty. On top of their free shipping, Tomorrow Sleep offers optional white glove delivery and old mattress removal (where available). That means someone will come deliver your new bed, set it up, and take away your old one.
That’s special, since an online mattress usually arrives in a box on your porch and then you have to haul it inside and unroll it yourself, which leaves you with an old rejected mattress and Dexter amounts of plastic wrap to dispose of.
Also, with the majority of these companies, you get 100 nights to test out the bed, but Tomorrow Sleep gives you 365 nights. That’s right. An entire year to really make sure you want to be sleeping on this mattress for the foreseeable future. And by “foreseeable future,” I mean about 10 years.
Their warranty is the industry standard 10 years. However, the company explains that they keep the warranty at 10 years even though their mattresses will still be structurally sound for closer to 20 years, because it can be unhealthy to keep it for longer than 10 due to dust mites, dead skin, and other kinds of gross things.
Mattress Pricing For Tomorrow Sleep All-Foam
This is a fairly affordable mattress. Of course, no matter what mattress you buy, you’re going to spend a chunk of money. But compared to other prices in the industry, the Tomorrow Sleep mattress is priced near the lower-end.
Plus, Tomorrow Sleep is fairly aggressive when it comes to coupon codes and promo codes.
How Your Weight And Body Type Affects This Mattress
Any mattress is going to feel different to people based on their weight and body type. As a general rule, heavier individuals will experience a softer bed, while petite individuals will find that same bed to firmer.
With this mattress, specifically, a heavier individual (say 225 lb+) probably isn’t going to find it adequately supportive. They’ll end up having more sinkage than is desirable. But someone who is average sized will find this bed to be about a medium on the firmness scale. And then, of course, someone who is quite light, will experience something more like a medium-firm feel.
Overview Of The Tomorrow Sleep Foam Mattress
This mattress is comprised of three layers of foam. Each layer is CertiPUR-US certified (meaning it’s not bad for you or the environment) and latex free. That CertiPUR certification also means you won’t have to deal with that off-gassing that occurs with a lot of mattresses.
You’ll still want to let your new bed stand and take shape for about a day, and you’ll still get that new mattress smell, but it won’t be caused by the breakdown of things like Volatile Organic Compounds. We’re not going to get into exactly what those are, but the take-away here is that this mattress doesn’t have them and that’s a good thing.
If you’re short on time, here’s our quick video review about the Tomorrow Sleep memory foam mattress.
As for a construction breakdown of the bed, it starts with a base layer that is 7″ of high-density polyurethane foam. Unsurprisingly, it’s there for support. It’s a denser, firmer material that maintains structure and helps to prevent too much sinkage. It does a good job, but like we said, it’s not quite substantial enough for heavier individuals.
The middle layer is 2″ of gel-swirl memory foam, which is meant to help with temperature regulation, as well as give the bed a soft feel to cradle your body. And then the top layer is 1″ of open-cell memory foam. This layer is meant to help keep you cool while you sleep, while also providing pressure relief.
The cover on Tomorrow Sleep’s new mattress is thinner and breathable. It’s nice and soft, although you’ll still be putting sheets over it. But it has the bonus of being removable, which can make cleaning easier if you do happen to spill something on the bed.
Even with a removable cover, though, we still suggest looking into a mattress protector. You can find a ton of them on Amazon, and we like that using a mattress protector allows you the convenience of just tossing it in the wash.
Firmness Ratings For Tomorrow All-Foam
With all the foam in this bed and the two layers of memory foam, it’s not a surprise that this mattress has a memory foam feel. We’d characterize it as a medium memory foam that is soft to the touch. It doesn’t quite have that same dense feel as say a Nectar or Cocoon by Sealy.
You’ll get a bit of that sink-in sensation that’s pretty stereotypical of memory foam beds. Overall, we’d say it’s soft and comfortable (assuming you like the feel of memory foam).
In terms of firmness, we’d rate this mattress at a medium. It’s right there in the middle (for the average sized person). Remember, it’ll feel softer for someone who’s heavier, and firmer for someone who’s lighter.
For reference, Matt Ross the Boss is around 185lb and calls this a medium bed, while our smallest team member is about 100lb and is hard pressed to tell the difference between a medium mattress and a gym floor.
Response Times For The Memory Foam
Responsiveness refers to how quickly a mattress returns to shape after being depressed. Having good responsiveness is what keeps you from feeling stuck in the mattress when you change positions at night. The responsiveness with Tomorrow’s all-foam bed is not the best. It’s kind of slow compared to other beds we’ve tried. The bounce back after being depressed is just definitely not immediate.
However, it’s not so slow that you feel stuck in the bed when you go to turn over, and that’s really what matters. At the end of the day, we’d say you get a moderate amount of resistance when you’re rolling around on the bed.
Is Tomorrow Sleep Good For All Sleep Styles?
We do think this mattress is a good option for side sleepers. It has a middle-ground softness/firmness, but the feel is quite soft and that top layer of memory foam provides sufficient pressure relief, which is just what a side sleeper needs to get a comfortable night’s sleep.
When you sleep on your side, you want to keep your spine straight, but that’s difficult to do if your mattress doesn’t have enough give around your shoulders and hips. If your bed is too firm and you don’t sink in at the right spots, you end up with a gap under your stomach and that just about guarantees you some soreness in the morning.
This mattress is going to be good for back and stomach sleepers, as well. Like we said, it’s right in the middle in terms of softness/firmness, which makes it an accommodating bed.
The thick base layer of denser foam provides enough support for sleeping on your back or stomach. Just like when sleeping on your side, when sleeping on your back or stomach, you want to keep your spine in alignment and you don’t want an uncomfortable gap under your lower back.
Smaller And Average Sized People
In short, yes it is. It’s a very accommodating mattress that is good for all types of sleepers. Light and medium sized people will find that this mattress provides a good blend of support and pressure relief.
We don’t think Tomorrow Sleep’s all-foam bed is the best option for heavier people. While it does provide good support for most people, it’s only 10″ thick and we’re just not sure it will provide enough support for someone who’s say 250 lb+ over the long haul. If that’s you, you’ll want to look for a thicker construction and perhaps something that incorporates coils.
Temperature Of The Bed
If you’re an especially hot sleeper, this bed might not be the most beneficial option for you. In terms of temperature regulation, we call it temperature neutral. It’s not going to make you sweat like crazy, but it’s certainly not going to actively cool you down, either.
Despite its top two layers that are supposedly intended to cool you down, it’s really just average in this category. And if you’re heavier and sink into the mattress more, you may find yourself nestled in a warm spot.
I don’t know, though, maybe you like that. Maybe you’re like me and don’t turn on the heat in your house because you’re a recent college grad and you have to pay for food and gas. Maybe that extra warmth is very valuable to you. I don’t know…. But really, if you do tend to get uncomfortably warm at night, this mattress isn’t going to help you combat that.
Thoughts On Motion Transfer Control And Edge Support
The motion transfer control on this mattress is great. There’s really no transfer. You could throw a rave on one side of the bed and still not have a problem with cross-bed motion. That’s to be expected with all-foam constructions, so actually, we’d be concerned if it were less than great.
Motion transfer control is a detail to think about if you or your partner is a light sleeper and the other tends to toss and turn quite a bit. If the bed can deaden motion, you’re far less likely to have one of you getting jostled awake.
All-foam beds tend to have underwhelming edge support. And if you’re a couple with a smaller bed, like a full or a twin XL, you want decent edge support so that no one feels like they’re falling off the bed when they get close to the outer couple of inches.
However, we’re happy to report that Tomorrow Sleep’s all-foam bed has surprisingly good edge support considering its construction. It’s not as good as a Tomorrow Sleep hybrid mattress, but it’s better than most all-foam beds.
Overall, we were pretty impressed with the Tomorrow Sleep Memory Foam Mattress. It’s affordable, accommodates all kinds of sleepers, and is extremely comfortable. Bottom line—if you’re on a budget and like the feel of memory foam, you’ll like this mattress.
