When was the last time you went shopping for a new mattress? If you’re like most people, you ignore that ‘every ten years’ recommendation and wait till your current mattress is useless. And if you’re just getting into the market, you’re in for a shock. There are so many new options available it can make your head spin. Of course, you can do all your shopping online as well, which eases some of the pain of hunting through a variety of stores.
Many of the online purchase options are worthy of consideration, including the Level Sleep mattress. Created after extensive research, the Level Sleep mattress has done very well in a market rife with competition. Offering zoned comfort, the mattress aims to please those with joint and muscle pain.
Things you should know about Level Sleep
The Level Sleep company launched in 2015, with a single mattress that was offered in the extensive bed in a box market that has taken the nation by storm. The Level Sleep mattress is the product of extensive research and design, and because of its proprietary construction and materials, doctors often recommend the mattress to those with extreme joint pain, muscle cramps, and morning soreness. The technology used in these mattresses was engineered and tested for ten years, including through clinical trials, to create the best possible sleep environment. These mattresses are also made using foam that is certified to have low VOC through Certi-PUR-US.
The Level Sleep Mattress Details
The Level Sleep mattress is an all-foam mattress using mainly memory foam to create a comfortable sleep environment, complete with proprietary zoning comfort that allows the mattress to conform to your sleep position for the ultimate support. The TriSupport mattress includes three zones with varying form and firmness so that pressure point relief and alignment are key.
The three zones are part of the top comfort layer, and trials have proven that 58% of the people who tested the bed during clinical studies fell asleep faster on the Level Sleep mattress than other mattresses. The mattress is recommended not only for those who have lumbar issues and other joint paint but also for those who are combination sleepers rather than having a single preferred sleep position. This is perhaps due to the fact that the Level Sleep mattress comes in a medium firmness rating of about 5.5 on a scale of 1 to 10, putting it directly in the middle so that it suits all types of sleep positions.
You won’t find the Level Sleep mattress in traditional brick and mortar mattress stores or mattresses and furniture sales locations. You also won’t be able to order it off big box retail stores. However, you can find a list of authorized sleep partners, most of whom are licensed chiropractors, where you can try out the Level Sleep mattress.
You can only order through their business website, which means dealing directly with the company. I found that the website was easy to navigate and use, and delivery was prompt, especially for a bed in a box company. They state that delivery takes about 5 to 8 business days, and mine arrived in 6 days, so right on schedule. For an additional charge, they offered me a white glove delivery service, which included delivery, home assembly and setup, removal of all packaging waste, and hauling away your old mattress. I declined since this was a trial, but the cost of $139 is reasonable, should you need the assistance.
I did notice some odor during off-gassing, but I’ve smelled much worse. It didn’t take long to clear up, with the window open, and the mattress was ready to sleep on within a couple of hours. The construction seemed sturdy, and all stitching was quality, with no loose threads or anything. I also felt that, while all mattresses do require a break-in period to learn how the mattress really sleeps, the Level Sleep bed slept comfortably the first night, better than a new pair of shoes that need to be broken in.
How the Level Sleep Mattress is made
The TriSupport mattress by Level Sleep is all foam, with a proprietary construction that allows the comfort layer to conform to your body while you sleep, accenting your pressure point relief with three zones that vary slightly in firmness to accommodate the needs of your shoulders, back, and hips. The mattress is 10 inches thick with a medium feel, rated on average to be about 5.5 out of 10. This is the middle of the road, which means it will work for most sleepers, regardless of their position, and is excellent for people like me, who are combination sleepers and change positions often throughout the night.
The initial layer is a cover, made of stretch polyester, which means there is likely a bit of lycra or spandex woven into the fabric. What that accomplishes is a secure fit so that the material isn’t sliding around through the night. That reduces noise, bunching up, and overall discomfort. The polyester material is highly breathable, so the bed can remain cooler through the night. It’s also thin and easy to remove for laundering.
Beneath that, the Level Sleep mattress contains 3 inches of memory foam. This layer is broken up into 3 zones that constitute the TriSupport construction. The top part of the layer is constructed for head and shoulders, which includes polyfoam to keep your head from sinking into the mattress and creating that hugging quality while still remaining soft. That softness also means that, with the quick responsiveness of the material, shoulders can sink in and allow the foam to contour to keep your spine in alignment.
The middle zone of this layer is created to support the torso. This is imbued with a firmer feel, which helps keep your spine straight rather than allowing you to sink in. As your shoulders and hips sink in to contour the body, your torso won’t, assuring that pressure is relieved from crucial points on the body.
The bottom zone of the comfort layer to the Level Sleep mattress is configured to accommodate the hips and legs. It’s medium support feels that it has the right amount of cushion and responsiveness to let the hips dig in, relieving pressure, while legs are supported and allowed to ‘float’ above the mattress. This relieves not only pain in the hips but also in the lower back, where the spine can get twisted and contorted as you sleep.
The base layer of the Level Sleep TriSupport mattress is 7 inches of high-density polyfoam. It is highly sturdy and supportive, which keeps the comfort layer’s performance in check. It disallows the body’s falling into the mattress by keeping a more rigid support system, thus creating what some feel is a perfect balance as well as creating and maintaining shape to the mattress.
What are the Features and Benefits of a Level Sleep Mattress
There are two major benefits and features to the Level Sleep bed that are notable, in my opinion. First, the zoned comfort to the bed is an excellent option that will keep people with severe pain in their joints and muscles much more comfortable through the night. The three areas of the mattress each have a slightly different level of firmness and response, which helps create the right combination of support for the different parts of the body.
This is also ideal because, rather than creating multiple mattresses for a variety of sleep positions, the overall feel of this mattress works well for side, back, stomach, and combination sleepers. The medium loft is an excellent way to compromise, especially for couples who have different needs in terms of sleep style and firmness levels. Having only one mattress in one configuration is also great for shoppers who are easily confused by multiple offerings. Shopping for a new mattress is difficult enough without the hassle of trying to figure out which particular configuration of a mattress is right for you. the Level Sleep mattress introduces a level playing field, which accommodates the needs of any average shopper in the market.
The other major feature and benefit of the Level Sleep bed is that it backs its product with an incredible lifetime warranty. It helps to assure that the quality of the mattress is covered, and with an entire year’s trial period, you can test the bed until you’re absolutely sure it’s broken in before deciding whether or not it’s right for you.
The standard sizes most manufacturers of mattresses offer are Twin, Full, Queen, and King. All of these are available for the Level Sleep mattress, as well as the Twin XL and California King extended sizes. Regardless of your needs, you can order the right size for your personal height, room dimensions, and whether or not you have a sleep partner.
The Level Sleep bed is best for people with extreme back, shoulder, and overall joint problems. If you wake up with body pain of any kind on a regular basis, consult with a chiropractor about misalignment of the spine, feel very sore (especially in the shoulders, neck, or hips), or have trouble sleeping due to pain, you can benefit from the Level Sleep mattress. You’ll also find it comfortable if you happen to sleep quite hot.
|Twin||39" x 75" x 11"||52 lbs||$799|
|Twin XL||39" x 80" x 11"||54 lbs||$899|
|Full||54" x 75" x 11"||67 lbs||$1099|
|Queen||60" x 80" x 11"||76 bs||$1199|
|King||76" x 80" x 11"||93 lbs||$1399|
|Cal King||72" x 84" x 11"||94 lbs||$1399|
Because the bed is not purely memory foam and incorporates a great deal of polyfoam, which has greater breathability. That means there is more airflow through the mattress, carrying away the heat you put out during the night and keeping the entire structure much cooler. In addition, the polyester cover is a material that is known for sleeping cooler. I found that it stayed quite cool through the night, and since I sleep hot, I was pretty impressed with this. I also felt like the heat transfer capabilities were supplemented by moisture-wicking properties, keeping me from sleeping in a damp spot when I suffered from night sweats.
When it comes to measures of durability, that’s hard to test in a short time. However, the construction is sturdy, so there is every appearance of a long-lasting mattress. On top of that, the lifetime warranty offers a pretty inarguable guarantee. From all the available feedback given through the testing and further reviews, the Level Sleep mattress is reputable as well made and will hold up to rough treatment.
One area in which the average memory foam mattress tends to have issues is edge support. Many of them don’t have a firm enough structure around the edges to make you feel confident that sleeping or sitting on the edge won’t result in rolling or slipping off the mattress. This isn’t a problem with the Level Sleep mattress. I rolled across the bed, laid on the edges with arms and legs hanging off, and sat on the edges to put on stubborn boots. I never felt like I was going to fall or come off the bed.
Maintenance, Protection, Care and Warranty
When it comes to maintenance of your TriSupport Level Sleep mattress, you don’t have to worry about complicated instructions. The polyester cover is removable so you can launder it. Wash on the gentle cycle, and if you choose, you can tumble dry the cover on low heat. However, hanging to dry is better. When you put the cover back on the mattress, the elasticity of it should make it easy, giving it the perfect fit. This cover also helps to protect the mattress, keeping spills from staining and compromising the mattress.
Another great selling point is the warranty. After a 365-night trial period, during which you can return the mattress free of charge (and a full refund) based on it not being satisfactory, the mattress is covered with a lifetime warranty. The warranty isn’t even prorated, with full defect coverage for the entire time you have the mattress. For claims, you’ll need an original receipt of purchase. You can return the mattress after 10 full nights of sleep, and for warranty claims, you’ll need to ship your mattress to Level Sleep for full repair or replacement.
Given the average cost of a bed in a box mattress, the Level Sleep bed falls easily within the acceptable range. The price ranges between $799 for the Twin and $1,399 for a King. For comparison purposes, most prices are considered based on the Queen, which is $1,199. There are many sites offering discounts as well, making the Level Sleep mattress even more affordable. Overall, with the sturdy construction and the overall benefits of the mattress, I’d say this is one of the best deals on the internet.
Reviews and Feedback
Other than an occasional unhappy individual who feels that the mattress is not configured for their sleep preferences, it’s hard to find a complaint on the Level Sleep mattress. There is little to no bounce, and for those who prefer a traditional feel to their mattress, the Level Sleep is not likely to perform to satisfaction. However, the same quality also means that the mattress is ideal for people who sleep with a partner. The mattress, I found, isolates motion almost exclusively, so there is no chance of waking or being woken by your partner.
Who Would We Recommend the Level Sleep Mattress For?
When it comes to the Level Sleep mattress, it’s one of few mattresses on the market that could literally suit anyone. With the medium feel, the zoned comfort for pressure point that is proprietary, and the heat dispersal, the Level Sleep mattress is great for people with all preferred sleep positions and especially for those who are combination sleepers. It is also great for those with join and muscle pain, as well as anyone who happens to sleep hot or suffer from night sweats.
Our Final Verdict
The Level Sleep mattress is impressive all the way around. Between quality materials that are certified to have almost no chemicals, an incredible trial period and warranty, cooling features for a more comfortable sleep space, and pain relief through the structure and pressure point contouring, this bed is beyond satisfying. I was especially impressed with the customer service, as well as the ease with which the mattress cover is removed and replaced. The edge support surpasses the typical bed in a box, and that means it’s comfortable even if you prefer to hang off the bed while you sleep.
