Sleep Rating

Durability
Very Good

The lifespan of the WinkBed appears to be above average in terms of components used and construction so both models should last longer than most mattresses in the innerspring/hybrid category

Motion Isolation
Good

Multiple foam layers allow the WinkBed to isolate motion transfer to a greater extent than other innersprings, according to owners.

Conforming
Good

WinkBed reviews are mixed in terms of conforming; those with softer beds say the mattress conforms closely and alleviates aches and pains, while firmer options do not conform as much.

Sex
Good

The WinkBed is fairly responsive, and multiple firmness options allow couples to select a sleep surface that works best for them.

Temperature Neutrality
Good

The WinkBed sleeps slightly warmer than most innersprings, but most owners say temperature neutrality is not problematic.

Off-gassing
Good

Some off-gassing odors have been reported by WinkBed owners, but these smells tend to dissipate within a few days.

Very Good

The WinkBed provides strong edge support, and owners report minimal sinkage in places where they sit to get off of and onto the mattress.

As you can see, Winkbeds mattresses perform very well across all sleeper weights. If you prefer the feel of sleeping “on” versus “in” a mattress, it’s hard to find a better option for a sleeper at this price range.

Our testing process found Winkeds mattresses should also be great for you if…

  • Prefer a feel closer to a traditional innerspring mattress
  • Want strong edge support – the Winkbed is one of the strongest performers in this category that we’ve tested
  • Want a luxury feel at a very reasonable price point
