Yogabed Customer Satisfaction Rating Comparison
Yogabed Mattress Sleep Ratings
What Yogabed Users Say
Based on data collection, this is an overall customer sentiment regarding the Yogabed mattress.
The Yogabed has received a customer satisfaction rating of 69%, which is below-average compared to other memory foam models.
Memory foam is engineered to provide a comfortable, conforming sleep surface that retains its original shape over time, but indentations are to be expected.
Owners report that the Yogabed is on par with other memory foam mattresses in terms of premature sagging and indentations, but the company has only been in business for three years and an accurate mattress lifespan has not been calculated.
Memory foam mattresses have been touted for superior motion isolation, which means that motion does not occur throughout the mattress when someone gets up or shifts their position.
Like many other all-foam mattresses, the Yogabed minimizes and isolates motion to a significant extent, resulting in fewer nighttime disruptions for sleepers.
Many memory foam users report that these mattresses are not very conducive for sex due to the lack of responsiveness, which can create a feeling of ‘fighting’ the mattress.
The Yogabed is not particularly responsive or bouncy, which is typical of a memory foam mattress, and may not be as good for sex as a result.
Memory foam mattresses are engineered to conform to the sleeper’s figure, creating a cradle-shaped impression that aligns the spine and targets pressure points.
The Yogabed conforms to a sleeper’s body and relieves pressure to some extent, but owners claim that other memory foam beds provide higher levels of conforming.
Memory foam retains more body heat than other mattress materials, and users often ‘sleep hot’ as a result.
Owners report that the Yogabed can be a heat trap, causing them to sleep uncomfortably warm or hot.
Some mattresses emit particles when they are unpackaged, accompanied by unpleasant ‘off-gassing’ smells that can last for days.
Yogabed mattresses will produce some off-gassing after unpacking, but these smells will usually dissipate in one to two days.
Because of their construction, memory foam mattresses often feature little to no edge support.
The Yogabed offers little to no edge support, resulting in premature sinkage on the edges where people tend to sit.
Memory foam mattresses create little to no noise, due to their lack of springs, coils, and other metal components
Owners say the Yogabed is virtually silent when bearing weight.
Ease of Moving and Rotating
All mattresses are relatively heavy, but some are more unwieldy and difficult to move than others.
A Queen-size Yogabed weighs 80 pounds, which is on par with the average weight for all memory foam mattresses.
