Best Alternative : Macoda

Pricing Range:
Macoda – $650 – $1100
Eva – $600 – $1000

Pros

  • Hybrid bed
  • Change the firmness
  • Zoned support


Read: Macoda Review


Macoda is a hybrid mattress of high quality, and comfort is also a close match too Eva in terms of pricing and comfort. The mattress was designed by two Australians who had comfort, quality and Aussie summer nights in mind. The Macoda keeps you cool with the natural pinhole latex, gel-infused memory foam, and the individually encased pocket springs.

The Macoda also is customisable, meaning you can change two foam inserts around for a different firmness level. If you’re a fussy sleeper it’s excellent, you can pick between a soft, medium and firm comfort feel,  and it only takes a couple of minutes.

The Macoda is a four-layer mattress in total. Three of the layers are foam, and then the base contains pocket springs which are encased in a plush bamboo cover that is as comfortable as it looks. The foam layers are latex, gel-infused memory foam, and high-density support foam.

Upgrade Alternative : Noa Luxe

Pricing Range:
Noa Luxe – $799 – $1399
Eva – $600 – $1000

Pros

  • Well priced
  • High quality
  • Reach certified


Read: Noa Review


The Noa luxe is an upgrade alternative if you’re looking for a mattress that is unique and top of the range then this is the choice for you. The Luxe is the top of the range mattress in the Noa collection. Some of the extra features are the addition of bamboo charcoal latex which is an eco-friendly material that is fragrance-free, allergen-free, and non-toxic.

The porous structure makes the layer absorb excess moisture and repels odors. I haven’t seen another mattress have bamboo charcoal latex material before and it’s a great luxury to have in your mattress. The Noa Luxe includes a micro-coils layer that used to be included in the Eva design but was removed. The micro coils expand and contract in response to the pressure of your body, making the Noa Luxe extremely comfortable.

The mattress is slightly more expensive than the Eva, but with this mattress, you do get what you pay for.

Foam Alternative : Emma

Pricing Range:
Emma – $549 – $1035
Eva – $600 – $1000

Pros

  • Won over 30 awards
  • 7 zones of support
  • OEKO-TEX® certification


Read: Emma Review


Emma is a top-rated mattress in Europe with 30 + awards and over 400,000 people sleeping on them. They have recently arrived in Australia, and we now understand why they have so many awards. Emma is great to sleep on; it’s slightly firmer compared to most memory foams, which is why a lot of people love the Emma.

Emma has three layers of foam in total, a breathable eco-friendly hyperfoam, supportive polyether foam, and pressure-relieving point-elastic foam (mattress marketing jargon). Basically, high-quality memory foams designed for pressure relief as you might beagle to tell from the visible 7 zone design on their website. The mattress is comfortable, and if you’re looking for a memory foam mattress instead of a hybrid mattress, then I recommend this option.

Australian made : Hugo

Pricing Range:
Hugo – $630 – $1030
Koala – $750 – $1250

Pros

  • Natural latex
  • Australian made
  • 4 layers of foam design


Read: Hugo Review


The Hugo is another memory foam alternative that is Australian made. With the Hugo, you get premium pressure relief and comfort without feeling ‘too-firm’ because of the combination of the four foam layers that is great for all body types and sleeping positions.

Being Australian made Hugo also has excellent customer service and offers same-day delivery to Melbourne metro areas and everywhere else in Aus is still fast and free.

The Hugo mattress still has increased airflow and bounce because of the foams used in the design. Starting at the top and working our way down, the latex top layer is naturally hypoallergenic and antimicrobial to reduce bacteria. Next, you have memory foam that matches your body’s natural contours, then a premium transition layer (that most mattresses skip over), and a high-density foam foundation that adds support and longevity.

Best Budget : Zinus ICoil

Pricing Range:
Zinus – $239 – $420
Eva – $600 – $1000

Pros

  • It’s an affordable mattress
  • Certi-PUR US certified
  • Hybrid


Read: Zinus Review


The Zinus ICoil is our budget-friendly choice, it’s a great mattress, but you won’t be getting all the bells and whistles like the other mattresses on the list. However, for the price, it’s the best mattress we have found in Australia.

Most of the time, you will find the foams on cheap mattresses to be treated or contain nasty chemicals, which you will be breathing in every night, for years. However, the ZinusICoil is Certi-PUR US certified, so you don’t have to worry about that.

You can find the Zinus ICoil on Amazon.com.au, it also includes a 10-year warranty and is also a hybrid mattress. But, don’t expect the same level of comfort as the other mattresses on the list.
