Meet Our Testing Team
- Sleepers who prefer a balance of body-conforming and responsiveness. The Recore Mattress has a synthetic latex comfort layer that feels fairly responsive, but the material also conforms somewhat to the sleeper’s body. This creates a combined feeling of both sleeping “on” and sleeping “in” the mattress.
- People who weigh 230 pounds or less. After testing the Recore Mattress, we found it provided the most comfort and support to sleepers in the lightweight and average weight groups.
- Couples. The Recore Mattress isolates motion very well and does not produce any noise when bearing weight. This makes the bed ideal for people who awaken easily due to their sleep partner’s movements.
- Value seekers. Compared to other mixed-foam models, the Recore Mattress has a fairly low price-point.
Not Recommended for...
- Sleepers who prefer close body-contouring. The Recore Mattress conforms somewhat to the sleeper, but it does not create the same pressure-relieving body cradle as beds with memory foam comfort layers.
Our testing team conducted an extensive evaluation of the Recore Mattress. Our review and rating process consists of three parts: in-house evaluation, external sleep testing, and data collection of verified owner experiences. To learn more about our review process, read our methodology here.
Our performance criteria and ratings for the bed are listed in the table below.
As you can see, the Recore Mattress performed particularly well in the motion isolation and pressure relief categories, but earned lower ratings in other areas. For a detailed look at each performance rating, check out our full breakdown below.
Sleep Position Ratings
As part of our ratings process, we evaluated the Recore 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 Recore Mattress Constructed?
The Recore Mattress has a cover made from a blend of polyester, viscose, and spandex. The fabric has a very soft and stretchy feel. Additionally, threads with a silver-based coating are sewn into the fabric. This component is intended to help reduce the build-up of bacteria, mold, and other microbes.
Owners can unzip and remove the cover for cleaning. GoodMorning.com recommends washing the cover on a gentle cycle, then either tumble-drying on low or air-drying. If staining occurs on the bottom cover, owners can spot-clean the fabric using mild detergent or baking soda.
The mattress has a 1.5-inch comfort layer made of synthetic latex. Although not as durable as organic or natural latex, synthetic latex provides the same balance of body-conforming and responsiveness. The comfort layer is also infused with graphite. This is intended to help regulate the bed’s temperature, as graphite has natural cooling properties.
A 2-inch transitional layer of gel-infused polyfoam is located beneath the bed’s comfort layer. This material, which is firmer and denser than the synthetic latex, prevents sleepers from sinking too deeply into the mattress and coming into contact with the ultra-firm base layer.
The Recore Mattress has a 7-inch support core consisting of high-density polyfoam. This layer stabilizes the entire mattress and maintains an even plane for sleepers. It also offers decent reinforcement along the edges and minimizes sinkage when owners get in and out of bed.
The Recore Mattress measures 10.5 inches thick, making it a medium-profile mattress. The bed sacrifices some space for comfort materials in order to provide more base layer support. As a result, the mattress feels fairly firm and supportive.

What Are the Firmness and Feel Like?
The Recore Mattress has a medium-firm feel, which registers as a 6 on the 1-10 firmness scale. This makes the mattress best suited to sleepers in the average weight group, as well as lighter or heavier individuals who prefer a mid-level firmness.
The synthetic latex comfort layer has a bit of a bounce, making it more responsive than the memory foam or polyfoam comfort layers found in other models, but the material also conforms a bit to the sleeper’s body. This creates a balanced feeling of both sleeping “on” and sleeping “in” the mattress.
Next, let’s take an in-depth look at our performance ratings for the Recore Mattress. Each rating is based on findings from our internal and external testing crews, along with experiences from verified Recore owners.
The Recore Mattress has been available to the public for about two years. We have not had enough time to test this model against the average mattress lifespan of six to eight years. Therefore, our durability rating is based on the bed’s quality of materials and construction, owner experiences, and GoodMorning.com’s overall reputation.
We expect the Recore Mattress to perform for about six to six and a half years before a replacement is needed. This expected lifespan is on par with that of the average mixed-foam model. The Recore Mattress contains sturdy support materials that should help the surface and edges withstand excessive sagging and body impressions over time.
However, the synthetic latex used in the comfort layer is not particularly durable, especially compared to organic, natural, or even blended latex. As the material deteriorates, owners may notice a loss of support.
In order to protect the Recore Mattress from major wear and tear, we recommend rotating the bed head-to-foot every three to six months.
Two of our testers evaluated the Recore Mattress for motion isolation by lying side-by-side on the top surface. One tester moved around while the other felt for motion transferring across the surface. During this test, the Recore Mattress demonstrated very good motion isolation and neither tester felt much movement from the other side of the mattress. That said, the synthetic latex is fairly responsive and the material does not completely eliminate motion transfer.
Our testers noted some initial off-gassing odor when unboxing the Recore Mattress. When they re-evaluated the mattress a few days later, they found the smells had mostly dissipated but noticed some lingering odor. The bed’s foam components emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), relatively harmless particles that carry a distinct chemical smell. The latex also has an odor some liken to rubber.
However, owner experiences with the mattress indicate long-term odor is not a problem, and very few report bothersome smells beyond one week of unboxing the bed. We don’t foresee major odor issues for most owners.
To evaluate the Recore Mattress for pressure relief, our testers took turns lying on a sensory pad that monitors pressure build-up in the shoulders, hips, and other sensitive areas. The testers also shifted positions to see if pressure increased or decreased when lying on their sides, back, or stomach.
The mattress reduced pressure for most of our testers. This can mostly be attributed to its mid-level feel. Side sleepers receive good cushioning for their shoulders and hips to keep the spine aligned and alleviate pressure throughout the body. For back and stomach sleepers, the mattress offers good overall support and resists sagging in pressure-sensitive areas.
Overall, the Recore Mattress offers good temperature neutrality. The synthetic latex found in the bed’s comfort layer does not absorb as much body heat as memory foam or polyfoam, allowing the mattress to sleep a bit cooler than many competing models with these materials.
However, the mattress does not promote airflow due to its solid foam base. Comparatively, hybrid and innerspring models typically provide better temperature neutrality because their open coil systems circulate air much better.
To evaluate the Recore Mattress for edge support, our testers sat along the perimeter as an owner might do when getting in and out of bed. The heavier testers noticed more sinkage than those in the lightweight and average weight groups, but overall the mattress performed fairly well in this category – especially for a mixed-foam bed. This is due in part to the latex comfort layer, which resists sagging better than foam. Other competing models with foam comfort layers are prone to deeper sinkage.
The testers also took turns lying near the edges of the mattress to check for feelings of “roll-off.” Again, the heavier testers felt less secure than those who weigh 230 pounds or less, but the mattress offered decent reinforcement and did not sink excessively.
The Recore Mattress was virtually silent during all of our tests. This is fairly common for all-foam and mixed-foam beds because they lack internal components associated with loud mattress noises. Other bed types tend to be louder, such as hybrids and innersprings due to their coil systems, or airbeds due to their motorized internal chambers.
The Recore Mattress is somewhat responsive due to its synthetic latex layer, but it lacks the springiness of all-latex, innerspring, and hybrid mattresses. Some couples may find it sinks a bit too deeply during sex, which can hamper movement and make changing positions rather difficult. However, the mattress provides decent traction for couples who typically maintain one position, and it is also fairly discreet due to its noise-free design.
The ideal firmness and thickness for a mattress largely depend on a sleeper’s body weight, shape, and preferred sleep position. In order to better inform our readers and avoid subjectivity in our review, our team evaluated the bed with sleep testers of varying body types and position preferences.
Lightweight Sleepers – Less than 130 lbs.
Among our lightweight testers, the best ratings for the Recore Mattress came from back sleepers. They noted strong overall support with minimal sagging, and liked the balance of body-conforming and responsiveness. Stomach sleepers in this weight group also felt comfortable, but noted more sagging around the midsection. For side sleepers, the comfort layer offered some padding for their shoulders and hips but the mattress felt a bit too firm.
Lightweight sleepers typically prefer soft to medium-soft mattresses. Firmer beds do not conform as closely, and this can limit pressure relief for those who weigh less than 130 pounds. The Recore Mattress, which is medium-firm, may be suitable for lighter people who like mid-level feels, but others will find the mattress too firm for their liking.
Average Weight Sleepers – 130 to 230 lbs.
Side sleepers in the average weight group felt much more comfortable on the mattress than their lighter counterparts. The comfort layer offered enough padding to align the spine and alleviate pressure without sagging beneath the shoulders and hips. Back sleepers weighing 130 to 230 pounds also awarded very favorable ratings thanks to the bed’s mid-level firmness and strong support system.
Stomach sleepers in this weight group also noticed sagging – a common problem associated with this sleep position. Many people carry a large amount of weight in their midsection, and sleeping face-down can cause their bodies to sink excessively. For many stomach sleepers, the ideal mattress has a firmer feel and/or a coil system that provides stronger support.
Heavyweight Sleepers – More than 230 lbs.
The Recore Mattress earned positive ratings across the board from our heavyweight testers, though each position group noted some drawbacks. Side sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds found the mattress a bit too soft and prone to sagging, which affected their spinal alignment, but the comfort layer alleviated pressure fairly well. Back and stomach sleepers also noticed sagging, especially around the lower back and hips, but the mattress offered adequate support and the sinking was not excessive.
Heavyweight sleepers usually prefer medium-firm to firm mattresses. Softer models usually sag too much, and this can affect how supportive the mattress feels. The Recore Mattress has a medium-firm feel but it is still susceptible to sagging due to its foam support layer – especially for people who weigh more than 230 pounds.

How Does the Recore Mattress Compare to Other Beds?
We encourage all mattress shoppers to compare different brands and models in order to find the best bed for them. In this next section, we’ll see how the Recore Mattress stacks up against other GoodMorning.com models and some similarly constructed beds from other brands.
Recore Mattress vs. Brunswick Spring Mattress
The Brunswick Spring Mattress from GoodMorning.com is a hybrid model featuring a Euro-top cover padded with comfort layers of memory foam, polyfoam, and polyfiber fill. The mattress also contains 8-inch pocketed coils encased in high-density foam.
Like other hybrids, the Brunswick Spring Mattress provides consistent temperature neutrality thanks to strong airflow through its coil layer. The thick comfort system also offers better-than-average cushioning for sleepers compared to other hybrids, while the thick, foam-reinforced coils ensure very strong edge support. The Recore Mattress, on the other hand, alleviates more pressure for sleepers across different weight and position groups. It also isolates motion very well and does not produce any noise, making it better suited for couples.
Price-points for the Brunswick Spring Mattress and Recore Mattress are fairly comparable, so most shopper decisions will come down to preferred mattress type. Hot sleepers and those who like more supportive and responsive beds may find the Brunswick Spring Mattress more comfortable, but people who like the conforming, pressure-relieving feel of a mixed-foam bed should choose the Recore Mattress instead.
Recore Mattress vs. Douglas Mattress
The Douglas Mattress from GoodMorning.com is fairly similar to the Recore Mattress, but with one key difference: the comfort layer is made from memory foam. Sleepers experience close body-conforming and sink into the surface, creating a feeling of sleeping “in” – as opposed to “on” – the mattress. The Recore Mattress has a more balanced feel due to its responsive synthetic latex comfort layer.
The Douglas and Recore Mattresses each have a medium-firm (6) feel, and the beds have earned similar ratings in most performance categories. Both isolate motion and reduce transfer very well and neither produces any noise, making them suitable for co-sleepers. In terms of pressure relief, the Douglas Mattress slightly outperforms due to its conforming memory foam layer – but either model is a good option for sleepers with chronic pressure point issues.
Price-points for these two mattresses are fairly comparable, as well. The Douglas Mattress is optimal for sleepers who enjoy the deep, pressure-relieving body cradle of memory foam, while the Recore Mattress is better suited to those who like the combined feeling of sleeping “on” and sleeping “in” their bed.
Recore Mattress vs. Logan & Cove
The Logan & Cove from GoodMorning.com is a luxury hybrid. The mattress is constructed with a wood-derived Tencel cover, along with comfort layers of blended silk, soy-based polyfoam, and gel polyfoam. The support core consists of sturdy, 8-inch pocketed coils.
Due to their design differences, the Logan & Cove and Recore Mattress have distinct pros and cons. The Logan & Cove has a thick coil system that ensures very good edge support, and customers can choose from medium-soft or medium-firm feels. The mattress also offers very good temperature neutrality thanks to strong airflow through its coil layer. However, the Recore Mattress outperforms the Logan & Cove in terms of motion isolation and pressure relief due to its mixed-foam construction.
The Logan & Cove is a bit more expensive due in part to its innovative materials. Those who enjoy hybrids for their strong support and above-average breathability should consider the Logan & Cove, while the Recore Mattress is better suited to couples and people with pressure point issues.
Recore Mattress vs. Novosbed
The Novosbed is the flagship mattress for GoodMorning.com, which was previously known as Novosbed Inc. The mattress is constructed with 5 inches of memory foam over a high-density polyfoam base. As with the Douglas Mattress, the Novosbed provides close body-conforming for a feeling akin to sleeping “in” the mattress.
Customers can choose from three firmness options for their Novosbed: soft (3.5), medium (5), and medium-firm (6.5). This broad selection ensures most sleepers can find a suitable firmness regardless of their body type, normal sleep position, or comfort preferences. The Recore Mattress – which is only available in medium-firm (6) – is a bit more limiting for shoppers. However, the mattresses both isolate motion very well and alleviate pressure for most sleepers.
The Novosbed is a bit more expensive than the Recore Mattress, but both models are reasonably priced. Sleepers who like the pressure-relieving cradle of memory foam – or those who prefer soft or medium feels – should opt for the Novosbed, while the Recore Mattress is a good option for people who like a mix of conforming and responsiveness.
Recore Mattress vs. The Casper
The Casper Mattress is a mixed-foam mattress constructed with polyfoam and memory foam comfort layers over a high-density foam base. The polyfoam gives the mattress a bit of responsiveness, but sleepers still experience close body-conforming due to the bed’s medium (5) feel.
The Casper Mattress has low-density foam in its comfort layers. This allows the bed to feel more breathable and temperature-neutral than many competing mixed-foam models, including the Recore Mattress. However, the Recore Mattress offers stronger edge support due to its synthetic latex component. In terms of similarities, both mattresses offer very good motion isolation and alleviate pressure for most sleepers weighing 230 pounds or less.
The Casper Mattress costs a bit more than the Recore Mattress but its price-point is still fairly low. Both models are suitable for sleeper who like a responsive, mixed-foam feel. Those who prefer a medium feel will probably be more satisfied with the Casper Mattress, while the Recore Mattress is a better choice for people who like medium-feel beds.
Recore Mattress vs. Endy Mattress
Canada, Endy is a Canada-based brand considered a main competitor for GoodMorning.com. The Endy Mattress is an all-polyfoam mattress with a medium-firm feel. The polyfoam responds faster than memory foam and gives the Endy Mattress some noticeable bounciness, but the Recore Mattress is more responsive due to its latex layer.
The Recore Mattress isolates motion very well, but the Endy Mattress outperforms in this category. The polyfoam fully absorbs movement from sleepers, eliminating transfer in the process. Apart from these differences, the mattresses are fairly similar. Both offer better-than-average edge support, alleviate pressure for most sleepers of 230 pounds or less, and do not produce any noise.
Price-points are nearly identical for the Endy and Recore Mattresses, so customers should base their decision on comfort preferences. The Endy Mattress conforms a bit more due to its all-polyfoam construction and its all-foam construction offers better motion isolation for couples, but those who prefer a more responsive, mixed-foam feel should consider the Recore Mattress instead.
