YogaBed Mattress Review
Last Updated: February, 2020
If you're in the market for a new bed, you've probably come across a handful of companies claiming to be the best of the best.
The truth is, many beds, especially ones in a similar price range, are of similar quality. What makes mattresses unique is not their quality, but their features.
When it comes to mid-premium level mattresses, YogaBed is a strong contender.
In this review, we're going to cover some of the basics of the YogaBed, along with its pros, cons, and unique features.
Let's get started!
What We Like
What We Don't Like
The YogaBed is a combination memory foam mattress. It comes in a box (free shipping!) and is fully expanded within an hour.
The YogaBed gets its name from its proprietary "yoga foam" layer. While this may sound fancy, its basically just a gel memory foam hybrid layer.
The biggest plus to this fancy layer is that it a great job relieving pressure and dissipating heat. It's great if you have chronic pain or sleep hot, or both!
The YogaBed is an excellent choice if you're not looking to break the bank, but you still want all of the great features that come with a modern memory foam mattress.
The mattress is easy to clean and is an excellent choice for a main bed, but cost-effective enough for a spare bedroom as well.
Now, let's talk about the overall build quality of the YogaBed.
The mattress itself is made out of 4 layers of foam. The bottom layer is a dense foam that provides most of the support.
The second, and thickest layer, is a traditional memory foam layer that helps with pressure relief and motion isolation.
The 3rd layer is where the yoga foam comes in. This layer is designed to add extra support and dissipate heat.
The top layer is another form of yoga foam, but instead of memory foam, it's a neutral foam. This gives the mattress all the benefits of memory foam without the difficulty of moving around.
This is one of the best designs for a combination foam mattress we've tested!
YogaBed has a lot of great features that we loved. Here's a quick summary of the biggest pros of this memory foam bed.
- Washable, easy to remove cover
- Excellent edge support
- Four different layers of foam give it a uniquely satisfying feel
- 100 day money back trial period (with free return shipping!)
No bed is perfect, and with is pros, the YogaBed also has its fair share of drawbacks as well. Here's what we didn't like about the YogaBed.
- Starts off softer than it will ultimately be
- Due to the layer stacking, the mattress can't be flipped
If you're looking for a new mattress, especially if you're shopping online, it can be hard to tell the difference between the beds. The following are a few features that make the YogaBed unique.
One of the biggest things we loved about the YogaBed is also a feature that makes it stand out: its removable mattress cover.
Only about 5%-6% of mattresses have a removable cover, and none of them are as easy to slide on and off as the YogaBed's is.
The zipper for the cover is right in the middle of the mattress, making it easy to take on and off.
Along with being easy to remove, the cover is also machine washable. This mattress cover is unmatched among competitors and by far our favorite feature of this mattress.
Some memory foam mattresses are nothing more than a slab of "proprietary" memory foam. The problem with memory foam is that while yes, it's supportive, it also tends to be very warm and restrictive.
Since the YogaBed uses four layers of unique foam, you get the best of multiple foam types. This makes a mattress that is soft yet supportive, cradling yet not restrictive, and soft yet cool.
Bed in A Box
Not a unique feature to the YogaBed, but the whole bed in a box idea is something you should be ready for. The YogaBed will arrive in a pretty big box. You'll have to slice open a bag and let the mattress expand within your bed frame.
Mattresses like this are almost never ready to be slept on immediately. The YogaBed will require at least an hour to expand fully, but won't get to its actual level of firmness until about a day later.
When it comes to buying a mattress, one of the most important factors is comfort. This, along with the build quality, are what makes a great mattress great and a crappy mattress worthless.
The comfort level of the YogaBed is ideal if you're looking for a medium-firm mattress. The multiple layers provide enough support to appease those who like a firmer mattress but may be a little too firm if you're a side sleeper who likes a softer feel.
The edge support on the YogaBed is excellent among memory foam mattresses, making it a great choice for couples. Since it's a pretty true medium, most people will find the YogaBed comfortable unless you like a very firm or very soft mattress.
Pricing for the YogaBed tends to vary. There's also a fair amount of sales running at any given time. For the most part, if you're considering the YogaBed, you can expect to pay around $950 for a queen size.
Obviously, this will vary depending on the time of year and what size mattress you go for, as well as any add-ons, but that's generally what you can expect.
Who The YogaBed is Right For:
The YogaBed is a great choice for anyone looking for a mid-premium level mattress made of cooling memory foam.
While this mattress isn't perfect, it's a great choice in its price range. You get unique features that most other similar mattresses don't have, including our favorite feature, the removable and machine washable mattress cover.
If you're looking for a medium-firm cooling hybrid mattress, check out the YogaBed. You get a 100-night trial that's backed by free return shipping so you can try out the bed virtually risk-free!
