Floyd Mattress Overview
Floyd is a U.S.-based bedding and home goods company. Unveiled in 2019, the Floyd Mattress – also known as ‘The Mattress’ – is a hybrid model measuring 10 inches thick.
The bed is constructed with a 2-inch comfort layer of copper- and graphite-infused memory foam, followed by a polyfoam transitional layer. The support core contains pocketed coils and a high-density foam base.
The bed’s top cover is made from polyester and TENCEL™ lyocell, while the bottom cover is made of polyester. In terms of its feel, the Floyd Mattress is considered medium-firm, which corresponds to a 6.5 on the 1-10 firmness scale.

Meet Our Testing Team
- Sleepers who weigh at least 130 pounds. The bed’s medium-firm feel provides sturdy support for average weight and heavyweight sleepers.
- Those who like sleeping on responsive mattresses. The bed’s springy hybrid construction is designed for those who prefer sleeping “on” – as opposed to “in” – their mattress.
- Hot sleepers. The mattress has a comfort layer of cooling copper-infused memory foam, and air circulates through the coil layer to ensure a comfortable sleeping temperature.
- Value seekers. The Floyd Mattress is available at a price-point that is significantly lower than that of the average hybrid, but the bed is well-made and offers comparable quality to many higher-cost models.
Not Recommended for...
- Sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. The bed’s responsive, medium-firm feel may result in discomfort and inadequate pressure relief for lighter individuals.
- Those who prefer sleeping on beds that contour closely and form a pressure-relieving cradle.
- People seeking a mattress that isolates most motion transfer. The Floyd Mattress is fairly responsive, and sleepers will feel more movement across the surface of the bed.
- Shoppers looking for a longer sleep trial. Floyd offers a 30-night sleep trial. By comparison, most competing brands offer sleep trials of 90 nights or longer. The 30-night trial may not provide enough time for customers to test out the mattress before deciding whether or not to return it.
The table below lists our performance criteria and ratings for the Floyd Mattress in terms of durability, temperature neutrality, and other key factors.
Like many competing hybrids, the Floyd Mattress provides consistent temperature neutrality and sturdy, reliable edge support. Couples may also find the responsive surface suitable for sex, though this also results in more motion transfer felt across the mattress.
Ultimately, we recommend the Floyd Mattress to anyone who prefers sleeping “on” – as opposed to “in” – their bed. The medium-firm feel offers very good support for heavier people, particularly back and stomach sleepers, but it will not provide a deep, pressure-relieving cradle for the sleeper’s body.
Sleep Position Ratings
As part of our ratings process, we evaluated the Nectar Mattress across different body types and preferred sleep positions. In addition to physical testing, we surveyed our sleep expert team and analyzed reviews from verified mattress owners and customers. Our findings are listed in the table below.

How Is the Floyd Mattress Constructed?
The Floyd Mattress has a cover consisting of multiple components. The top cover made from a blend of polyester (70%) and TENCEL™ lyocell (30%). The material has a silky-soft feel. The bottom cover is made of polyester, and designed to grip the foundation to prevent slipping.
The bed’s four quilted side panels are made of woven Benevento fabric, which is also used in furniture upholstery. Each lengthwise side is equipped with two handles for easier carrying.
The mattress features a 2-inch comfort layer made of 4 PCF memory foam infused with copper and graphite.
The memory foam has a medium-firm feel and is fairly responsive, giving sleepers a floating sensation of sleeping “on” the mattress surface, as opposed to sinking in. The comfort layer offers good overall support for sleepers in the average and heavy weight groups, but lighter individuals may find the mattress too firm and experience added pressure as a result.
Medium-density memory foam often traps heat and sleeps warm. The memory foam in the Floyd Mattress offers good temperature neutrality by comparison because it is infused with copper and graphite, both of which have cooling properties to prevent the mattress from absorbing too much body heat.
The bed features a 1-inch transitional layer of 1.8 PCF high-density polyfoam. This component acts as a buffer between the comfort layer and pocketed coils, which results in more body-cushioning for the sleeper. Its high-density composition also helps reinforce the edges, along with the pocketed coils.
The Floyd Mattress is constructed with a 6-inch support core containing 1,041 pocketed coils. The coils are zoned, with 14.5-gauge coils located beneath the sleep surface and thicker, lower-gauge coils reinforcing the edges for extra support. This layer helps the bed maintain a responsive, bouncy feel, and also keeps airflow steady throughout the interior.
The mattress also includes a 1-inch base layer of high-density polyfoam for added stability.
The Floyd Mattress has a 10-inch profile. This is on par with the average mattress thickness. Some people – heavier individuals in particular – may have a hard time getting on and off the bed due to its lower profile. However, the mattress has sturdy edges that won’t sink excessively when getting into bed, and sleepers don’t need to worry about rolling off the side at night.

What Are the Firmness and Feel Like?
The Floyd Mattress is considered medium-firm (6.5), which is a common firmness setting for hybrid models. The surface is responsive and bouncy, allowing sleepers to float on top of the mattress, rather than sinking deeply. This makes the best well-suited for sleepers who prefer more support and less of a pressure-relieving cradle, which often include heavier people and back and stomach sleepers.
Floyd advertises the mattress as falling between “6 and 7” on the 1-10 firmness scale, so their assessment is consistent with our findings. Those seeking a soft mattress may not find the Floyd Mattress very comfortable, but we think most average weight and heavyweight sleepers will receive adequate support and pressure relief from the bed.

How Does the Floyd Mattress Compare to Other Beds?
We urge all mattress shoppers to compare different brands and models in order to find the best option. Below, we’ll take a closer look at how the Floyd Mattress stacks up against four other leading hybrids and innersprings.
Floyd Mattress vs. Brooklyn Bedding Signature
Like the Floyd Mattress, the Brooklyn Bedding Signature is a hybrid model with foam comfort layers and a pocketed coil support core Both beds also provide strong edge support and consistent temperature neutrality.
However, there are some key differences between the two mattresses. For one, the Signature is available in three firmness settings: soft (3.5), medium (5.5), and firm (7.5). This range should accommodate most sleepers regardless of their weight or preferred position, as each option provides different levels of pressure relief and support.
The Signature also features two comfort layers measuring 4 inches total. For sleepers, this thicker comfort system results in a combination of sleeping “on” and “in” the bed. Comparatively, the Floyd’s 2-inch comfort layer provides more of a responsive, floating sensation.
The Brooklyn Bedding Signature costs about $150 less than the Floyd Mattress in a queen size. However, both price-points are well below the average for hybrid mattresses and each bed should be considered a high-value option.
Floyd Mattress vs. DreamCloud
The DreamCloud is a luxury hybrid constructed with five individual comfort layers, which included memory foam and latex. The bed measures 15 inches thick, giving it a much higher profile than the Floyd Mattress.
The DreamCloud and the Floyd each have a responsive, medium-firm feel. Both beds also offer good temperature neutrality due to consistent airflow through their coil layers. However, the DreamCloud’s thicker comfort system results in better motion isolation – and weaker edge support – compared to the Floyd.
The DreamCloud and the Floyd provide comparable levels of support and pressure relief. Average weight and heavyweight sleepers report even support with little to no added pressure, thanks to the medium-firm feels of these beds. However, lighter people may experience added pressure on either mattress.
The DreamCloud is slightly cheaper than the Floyd. Additionally, DreamCloud offers a 365-night sleep trial while Floyd’s sleep trial spans 30 nights. Shoppers who want more time to test out a mattress before deciding to keep it may want to consider the DreamCloud due to its longer-than-average trial.
Floyd Mattress vs. Saatva
The Saatva luxury innerspring’s support system features 4 inches of pocketed coils resting above 4 inches of non-pocketed bonnell coils. This coil-on-coil design makes the bed very responsive and bouncy, much like the Floyd Mattress, and also limits the bed’s ability to isolate motion transfer.
For comfort materials, the Saatva has a polyfoam-padded Euro-top cover, followed by comfort layers of polyfoam and memory foam. Like the Floyd, the Saatva circulates air very well through its coil layers, so the foam components absorb less body heat and the bed sleeps fairly cool.
Saatva customers can choose from three firmness settings: medium-soft (4), medium-firm (6), and firm (7.5). The medium-firm feel is most similar to Floyd’s one firmness option. Saatva also offers two profile options, 11.5 or 14.5 inches. Compared to the Saatva’s wide firmness and thickness selection, the Floyd’s design is much more limiting for certain sleeper types.
The Saatva and Floyd share nearly identical price-points in a queen size. Both should be considered high-value picks due to their quality construction and durability.
Floyd Mattress vs. WinkBed
Like the Saatva mentioned above, the WinkBed is a coil-on-coil mattress. This model features a 2.5-inch transitional layer of foam-encased pocketed coils over the 7.5-inch pocketed coil support core. The coils create considerable responsiveness, giving the WinkBed a bouncy feel very similar to the Floyd’s.
The WinkBed is available in three firmness settings. In addition to the medium-firm (6.5) option, which is very similar to the Floyd’s feel, customers can choose a medium-soft setting that conforms more closely and alleviates more pressure, or a firm (7.5) setting that provides even support for heavier individuals. Additionally, the WinkBed Plus is a firm (8) model designed specifically for heavier people, with 2.5 inches of latex replacing the top coil layer.
Design differences aside, the Floyd Mattress and WinkBed share many similarities. These include consistent temperature neutrality and sturdy edge support. However, the WinkBed has a 14.5-inch profile, making it much thicker than the Floyd. This allows the WinkBed to conform more closely to the sleeper’s body, resulting in more pressure relief and better motion isolation.
The WinkBed and WinkBed Plus are both significantly more expensive than the Floyd Mattress. This makes the Floyd a better pick for shoppers on a budget.
