The Nighslee mattress is one of the best values when it comes to a no-nonsense foam mattress online. The reason being is that after current discounts you can get a king size mattress for $495. That includes free shipping to you and a free return if need be. So, for all those budget mattress shoppers out there, this is truly a steal. This mattress comes with a standard 100-night sleep trial where you can sleep on it for that amount of time and if not happy, return it for free.
There’s no ultra fancy technology in this mattress but for people who are looking for an inexpensive foam mattress that is versatile to accommodate most sleepers, this is an excellent choice.
Overview of the Nighslee Mattress
Below is a video overview of the Nighslee mattress. As you can see it has a nice stretch knit cover to give you maximum contouring from the foam underneath.
Construction of the Nighslee Mattress
Here are the construction details that I found on their website. Overall this is typical for construction of an online foam mattress. What sets it apart though is the top layer which has tiny holes throughout for more breathability.
I’m amazed at how inexpensive this mattress is. You can get a king size for under $500!

My Nighslee Mattress Findings
Below you will see how much my 14 lb. bowling ball sinks into the mattress. There is just enough sink to properly address shoulders and hips.
The top layer is a gel-infused foam that has tiny holes for a bit more breathability. It’s not a night and day difference from other foams but it does help a little.
Here you can see each individual layer. This mattress is made in China. The layering is clean and well made. It recovered faster than I expected out of the box. Usually, mattresses shipped from China take a lot longer to recover.
Here’s a side view showing contouring again. The top layer is where you will get most of the pressure relief.
There’s basically no motion transfer with this mattress. It’s all foam and the top layer is soft enough to absorb the initial impact quickly.
Here’s another video showing how fast the mattress recovers and what you can expect for softness. Again, the top layer provides the majority of the pressure relief while the other two layers help with support.
My Nigshlee Mattress Recommendation
Although there’s nothing really groundbreaking about this mattress, what did take me a bit by surprise is what you get for the money. $495 for a king size mattress with this construction is about as good as you can get. There are other mattresses on the market with similar construction at this price point but the foam is not as good of quality and will feel much firmer. I expect this mattress to last just as long as others in the market for twice as much.
If you are used to sleeping on a medium-firm foam mattress and are looking for a replacement that won’t break the bank this is your mattress.
