Winkbeds is well known for their highly-rated hybrid mattress. They recently introduced an all-foam model, the Memory Lux, that completely eliminates any motion transfer but still retains its feel at the top layer that sets them apart from the competition. The memory lux retails for $1,599 in a queen size but they normally offer discounts that drop the price by at least a couple hundred dollars. That said, it is still considerably higher than the competing online foam mattresses. For this review, Winkbeds sent me a medium-firm version of their mattress, their best seller. They also offer a softer and firmer model.
Overview of the Winkbed Memory Lux
No matter which Winkbed you buy, you get a 120-night, risk-free trial. That means you have about 3 months to try it out in your house to see if it the right fit for you. If not, returns are free, you don’t have to pay shipping at all.
Here’s an overview of the Memory Lux and what sets it apart from other mattresses in its class. It’s important to note that this is truly a luxury foam mattress and so comparing to lower-priced brands really isn’t a fair comparison.
How Much Does the Winkbed Memory Lux Cost?
Below are the current prices. Rember, you can get a discount on their website at checkout.
Construction of the Memory Lux Mattress
Below are the construction specs as listed on their website.
Tencel Cover with Gel Infused Foam
Sleep cool and dry with our Eucalyptus-derived TENCEL® cover. Tufted with 2″ of premium cooling gel foam inside, it enables airflow and wicks away body heat and moisture.
Patented Aircell Memory Foam
Zoned Progression Foam
Atlas Core Foam
1.8lb density ATLAS Core™ foam provides pushback support and sag-proof lifetime durability, making the MemoryLux one of the most durable mattresses on the market.
My Winkbed Memory Lux Findings
What first struck me about this mattress is that Winkbeds kept the same quilted foam and Tencel cover as they have on their original model. This makes the mattress look different from the rest but you will also feel the difference right away when you lay on it.
As you can see, they use an optic white fabric that really looks clean and sleek. Tencel fiber is more breathable and softer than cotton so you get the benefits of breathability throughout.
In the picture below I put my 14 lb. bowling ball right up to the edge of the mattress to illustrate sinkage and edge support. You get more cradling out of this mattress than most because they quilt a layer of foam into the cover which makes it feel softer without sacrificing support.
As a side sleeper and occasional stomach sleeper the medium was a good fit although side sleepers would probably enjoy the soft version more while stomach and back sleepers should look at the firm version.
This mattress is about $300 more than your average queen size online mattress but in this case I think you get what you pay for. This mattress is made in the USA and incorporates quality materials throughout. Every layer is an upgrade over your standard 3 layer foam mattress and when you add it all up you can feel the difference. The 1.8 lb. density core foam should hold up for heavier sleepers giving you a few extra years over a standard online mattress which makes it a sound investment.
My Winkbeds Memory Lux Recommendation
I highly recommend the Winkbeds memory lux for sleepers that are affected by partner disturbance. This mattress has basically no motion transfer but is about as close as it gets to giving you the benefits of springs. The layering of the mattress will support you where you need it most and provide a bit more sink towards your shoulders. If you like the feel of a traditional, luxury mattress but springs may be keeping you up at night, this would be a great choice. It’s also worth considering if the less expensive options are leaving you wanting more.
