Eve is one of the biggest and oldest companies in the UK that sells rolled up mattresses straight to the consumer. Throughout this time the Eve mattresses have continued to be best sellers and have expanded their range to feature many different mattresses. This is the original and has continued to be a popular selection among customers. The Eve Original mattress is manufactured within the UK and can be received as quickly as the day after ordering.

Construction and Materials
The Eve mattress is manufactured in 3 separate layers that are designed to work together to give you a great night’s sleep. This is claimed to be done by moulding around your body and relieving pressure points no matter what position you sleep in.
1. Memory Foam Layer
The first layer is a memory foam layer which moulds around your body providing much-needed support and comfort. It also provides
2. Cooling Foam Layer
The second layer contains 3cm of cooling foam which increases airflow in the mattress helping you regulate your body temperature. It also provides a great balance of comfort and support, relieving your key joints of pressure.
3. Supportive Base Foam Layer
The bottom and the biggest layer is a supportive foam base layer. This helps support key areas of the body such as your shoulders, hips and spine. It also provides a solid base so you can get the most out of the top two layers.
As with most memory foam mattresses, it can take a while to fully decompress from its packaged state. While it may be ready to use within a few hours it may take up to a few days before you start getting the most out of the mattress. The cover on the top of the mattress is a blend of 98% polyester and 2% elastane. This allows the cover to stay in the correct place while being able to be resistant to wear and breathable at the same time. Another bonus with this cover is that it can easily be zipped off and machine washed. The cover is usually white with the signature yellow finish around the sides. A few sizes can also be ordered with a grey finish if you prefer that instead. The cover gives the mattress a very modern, sleek look that you would expect with a good product such as this.
Comfort, Support and Sleep Quality
The Eve Original mattress is classed as a medium-firm mattress. This is generally standard for memory foam mattresses as the mattress moulds around your body more slowly than if it was a softer mattress. Moulding/Sinking into the memory foam can often lead to discomfort while sleeping. The top layer provides a massive amount of support as it moulds around your body and can be very comfortable to sleep on.
The mattress is very comfortable to sleep on in any position but we have found that if you sleep on your back, side or stomach then you will get the most out of the memory foam mattress. If you frequently switch positions during the night then you will find that the pressure-relieving qualities of the mattress will help you stay comfortable for longer and you will not feel trapped despite the mattress moulding to your body. The comfort layer of the mattress is what stops you from feeling you are sinking into the mattress and provides an excellent balance between a firm surface and shaping around the body. Another great benefit of this and the mattress is made exclusively from foam is that there is very little transfer of movement around the mattress. This stops you from getting woken up by your partner if they move around the mattress frequently during the night.
The mattress ensures that if you are of your back then your hips do not sink in too much, helping maintain a neutral spine position. The firmness of the mattress also allows you to sleep comfortably on your stomach by supporting your hips and shoulders. The pressure relief that this mattress provides helps keep your spine well-aligned and keeping you comfortable throughout the night. Sleeping experience may differ slightly depending on your size and weight but it seems to be pretty consistent with many different body types.
You should be able to use whatever base you had before with this mattress and the team at Eve even say that it can be placed on the floor. We would not recommend this as several other issues can arise from sleeping with your mattress on the floor. The mattress is quite deep at 25cm and so you may find that your bedsheets may be quite a tight fit but all sizes should fit as standard.

If you are looking for a mattress that has proven time and time again to provide people with a great night’s sleep then this could be a great choice for you. The medium-firm mattress is a great choice if you are looking for a good mix of support and comfort. It is also great if you suffer from pain while sleeping as the pressure relief it provides can greatly help you sleep better. Our only issue with this product is it can sleep very warm and so if you are prone to overheating while in bed then you may find yourself sweating and being uncomfortably warm during the night. This is no reason to put you off though as this mattress easily ranks as one of the best out of the manufacturers that deliver mattresses in a box on comfort and support.
