The Doze Mattress is another offering in the growing lineup on online mattress companies. Doze uses a simple 2 layer construction with the latest foam and ticking technology to create a mattress that is affordable and comfortable for most sleepers. Coming in at $750 for a queen size, it is a good value and a good bet.
Ordering and Unboxing
You can order the Doze mattress direct from their website and it will arrive in about 5 business days. Unboxing the Doze mattress is a simple process. Most all foam mattresses will feel really soft immediately after unboxing. This is normal and don’t take it as a sign that the mattress will feel that way permanently. An all foam compressed mattress will firm up to its true firmness after a couple days. After unboxing around 90 of these types of mattresses I have found that the longer a mattress has stayed compressed the longer it will take to get into shape. That said, all of them eventually get to their true firmness.
Specifications and Construction
The Doze bed is constructed as follows. It is a relatively simple design. Some 2 layer foam mattresses have poor transition between the layers where you can feel where one ends and the firm layer begins. That wasn’t the case with the Doze. It offers a smooth transition of layers so that the mattress functions as a cohesive unit.
3″ of premium gel memory foam designed to keep you cool & comfy
7″ of moderate density support foam enough support & bounce for every bedroom activity
Below is a video illustrating bounce on the Doze mattress. It is all foam and really doesn’t have much bounce but the top foam layer still recovers quick enough so that there aren’t impressions that you need to dig out of if you change positions at night.
To see how the layers react, I removed the cover of the mattress to show you the inside. There are holes in the top gel layer of this mattress for extra breathability.
The Doze mattress comes with a zippable cover that can be washed in your washing machine just like a bed sheet. This is super handy especially if your mattress gets dirty during a move which inevitably happens. I still recommend a mattress protector if you have small children or drink in bed but still nice to know that the cover is always washable too.
Here’s a video illustrating heat retention. I used an infrared camera to show how quickly heat will dissipate after placing my hand on the mattress for about 10 seconds.
I found the Doze mattress to be in the softer end of the spectrum. It is firmer than the Green Tea mattress from Zinus but recover faster than the Green Tea mattress. It truly will be accommodating to all sleep positions but I think it will be best suited towards side and back sleepers.
