You likely have benefited from the reviews we have put out for a particular mattress or mattresses, but you won't know much about the producers of the review. Well, we here, at Undercover Mattress, are real people and we'd like you to know a little bit more about us, so you can rest easy about the information you are receiving from us.
Every review we do is based on an unbiased and objective point of view. We want to give you the best chance at finding a mattress that suits you most well and in order to do this we acknowledge the need to give transparent and accurate assessments. This is why we give comprehensive reviews that includes the likely experience that particular types of sleepers would have.
Our practice is quite straightforward. Analyse, data and fact-check, compare and publish. We don't take shortcuts and don't settle for inaccuracies. Even when it comes down to the type of foam used or the PCF of a material, we ensure that the information we provide is not false. We are well aware of the fact that we have the responsibility to not allow any particular mattress popularity or acclaim to sway our verdict, but we'll also happily admit when the public reception matches our own view.
Life would much easier for us if the only factor for what made a mattress ‘high-quality’ was how high you could jump on it and would likely make it more fun too. However, that’s not how it goes. The truth is, there are many ‘data points’ which help us determine the quality and suitability of a mattress. When performing our reviews, we like to go in-depth and don’t like to, in a figurative sense, leave any mattress unturned. We look at:
Let's face it. If a matress has been produced and released to the public it's got to have at least one favourable aspect about it, even if its universally and unanimously a terrible mattress. We think it's fair to include this detail. Inversely, any mattress that sits at the top in the discussion of the best mattresses we've reviewed, is almost sure to have at least one flaw, or element that would make it potentially unsuitable for you and we are just as willing to integrate these into our assesments as we are the up-sides of a poorly constructed mattress. The pros and cons feature of our reviews is our way of handing the weighted scales over to you, for you to judge if the positives outweigh the negatives and if awesome parts of a mattress will let you overlook the areas where it doesn't impress. We have categorised them as what ‘we appreciate’ and what ‘we regret’ and they include information about what certain sleepers should expect to go for and go against them with regards the mattress' performance.

Some people are numberphiles and would much prefer data to be dished out as cold, statistical figures instead of as text. If that applies to you, our characteristic data charts are made for you. We break down each of the characteristics which is discussed in detail within the article by attaching numbers to each aspect. This number summarises how well the mattress does in this area and the star rating is out of five. However the numerical verdict for firmness is an exception. That is out of ten to make it easier to judge.
To simplify and minimise the amount of effort you need to put forth in finding solutions to your mattress product dilemas, we have created a rating system which judges the mattress product in its entirety. It of course is hard to squeeze all details in the review into this rating, so we recommend consulting other parts of the review to give you a more developed perspective, but the overall rating will give you a virtually immediate idea of how you will likely find the mattress.
We aim to encapsulate our overall thoughts on the mattress product at the end of the review. This is ideal for you if you have just scan-read the assessment since it is a rounded summation of the analysis. It will highlight what we felt is its most prominent features and what important materials are used which will affect the properties of the mattress. We will never use the verdict to tell you to explicitly tell you to avoid or buy the product, but we equip you as much as we can, so you can decide for yourself.
The Emma original mattress is one of the best mattresses out there based on sales-figures despite only being around since 2015. There are numerous aspects to the Emma original which makes it incredibly popular. The breathability of the Airgocell layer provies an effective cooling mechanism and prevents you from being disturbed by night-time sweating. The memory foam in the Emma original is extremely adaptable and ensures that the mattress moulds to the shape of your body, so your comfort is virtually optimised. Though the Emma original may not be the best mattress in terms of edge-support it seems to deliver in most other areas, bringing you comfort, coolness and solid support which is mainly attributable to the underlying base. This product review shows that there is the chance that it is the best mattress for you
We have a small team who are devoted to looking into what makes a particular mattress function in the way that it does. When combining our experience, we have multiple years in the mattress industry and have put that to great use in determing what product is likely best for you.
