Real Simple, a monthly publication from the Meredith Corporation, sells the Real Sleep by Real Simple mattress. This model is an all-foam mattress constructed with a 3″ memory foam comfort layer and a 7″ high-density polyfoam support core. The bed also has a cover made of 100% organic cotton. The mattress is considered ‘Medium Firm,’ which corresponds to a 6.5 on the 1-10 firmness scale. Its 10″ profile is on par with that of the average mattress.
The Real Simple’s deep comfort layer offers moderate, even conforming; its ‘Medium Firm’ feel is optimal for those who weigh at least 130 pounds and back/stomach sleepers, as well as lighter individuals and side sleepers who prefer firmer surfaces. The mattress also provides great motion isolation and does not make noise when bearing weight, which makes the bed a good option for couples. Its breathable organic-cotton cover also allows the bed to sleep cooler than many of its all-foam competitors.
Real Simple offers free mattress shipping within the contiguous U.S. The Real Sleep is backed by a 100-night sleep trial and a 10-year warranty.
Read on to learn more about how the Real Sleep mattress is constructed, priced, and rated for performance, as well as Real Simple’s shipping, return, and warranty policies for customers.
Based on our customer feedback, Real Sleep by Real Simple mattresses have received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.
The Real Sleep’s ‘Medium Firm’ feel and 10″ profile make the mattress optimal for sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds. It offers moderate conforming that provides extra support to the sleeper’s heavier areas, resulting in improved spinal alignment and pain/pressure relief for most. The mattress may, however, be too firm for those who weigh less than 130 pounds.
In terms of firmness, the Real Sleep by Real Simple is considered ‘Medium Firm’ (6.5). The table below includes a breakdown of the bed’s firmness, thickness, and composition specs.
