Construction of the two variants

coccon Mattress review

As discussed above, the mattress comes in two variants the soft and the firm. Both the variants have their own compositions and layering.

Soft Cocoon: The soft Cocoon mattress is made up of three layers. They are aligned as below:

  • The top layer comprises of 2 inches of memory foam which gives added support and comfort to the mattress.
  • The second layer consists of 2 inches of transitional memory foam that gives the much needed support and gives the moderate transition from the memory foam of the top layer to the support base.
  • The bottom layer is the 6 inch of support foam which provides a base to the mattress and gives it a rock solid foundation.

Firm Cocoon: The firm version of the mattress is made of two distinct layers.

  • The top layer comprises of 2 inches of memory foam similar as in the soft version, which gives added support and comfort to the mattress and relieves the pressure points.
  • The bottom layer if made of 8 inch of base foam that provides support and base to the mattress.

Cover: Like the mattress, the cover of the Cocoon mattress comes in two variants-the Classic and the Cool. The Classic variant is simple, made of a combination of cotton and polyester which is thin, stretchable and airy, making the mattress breathable. The Chill variant is bit interesting. It is developed on the phase change technology.

This means that it absorbs the body heat of the sleeper and changes from cold to warm or vice versa depending upon the temperature of the sleeper. Thus it acts as a thermal regulator. However, it is designed to be soft, thin and stretchable, making the mattress breathable.

Firmness and Support

With two firmness variants, the Cocoon mattress intends to attract all kinds of sleepers. The soft firm mattress has a firmness score of 6 on the scale, while the firm variant has a score of 8 on the firmness scale. In both cases, users appreciated the feel and support extended by the mattress. It relieves the pressure areas, increasing support and adding comfort to the natural curves of the body.

With the impressive support and deep compression, the mattress scores well in terms of feel.

Bounce, Sink and Motion Transfer

The facts stated in this Cocoon mattress review is based on the usage of hundreds of users. The bounce of the mattress is just average, considering the thin layer of memory foam used in both variants. It is suggested that a slightly thick layer of foam at the top could do wonders in terms of response and bounce.

The sinkage of the Cocoon mattress just matches the expectation from this thin mattress. In back sleeping position the sinkage recorded was about 2 inches on the soft version and 1 inch on the firm version. Turning to the sides, the sinkage increased slightly and was a moderate 3 inches on the soft and 2 inches on the firm.

No doubt, in the centre of the mattress the sinkage was the highest with about 5.5 inches deep.

Regarding motion transfer, there isn’t much to complain as both the variants of the Cocoon mattress pass the test fairly well. The movements and vibrations are restricted or rather absorbed by the high base foam and not transmitted to the other ends, making it perfect for partners sharing the mattress.

Our Verdict

Sealy is a reputed name in the mattress industry which has been proving its mettle for the last ten decades or so and true to its reputation, it has come out with an innovative product that pleases most sleepers.

The bed out of box mattress as presented by Sealy in the shape of Cocoon is a treat for sleepers who like it either soft or firm and not something of a mix. Yes…the product comes in two variants-the super soft and the fairly firm and also with two distinct covers that makes up the USP of the product.

The phase change cover popularly called the Chill cover is creating waves in the foam mattress segment, with its unique thermal regulation technology.

Other than this both the mattresses come with a basic composition of memory foam, transitional poly foam and support foam which does not really make it stand out from its contemporaries. Considering other foam products in the market, Cocoon is surely set to face tough competition, only if it can pull it off with its Classic and Chill covers which make it stand apart from the crowd.

Hope you found this Cocoon Matt​ress review helpful.
