Macoda (Editors Choice)

Macoda mattress

Great bed. The Macoda mattress seems like a hidden gem in the mattress in box industry. Macoda started back in 2018 by two young Australians, and it's grown massively in popularity, just not as popular as the Koala mattress (yet). However, we think this underdog in the bedding industry is worth your consideration when looking for a new bed.

Macoda has won Australia's "Best Comfort" Mattress in a Box two years in a row because of their comfortable hybrid design combining advanced foams and pocket springs, giving you support and bounce. The layers are also interchangeable to fit your sleeping style, offering a medium (5/10) to a medium-firm feel (6.5/10).

The construction is to the highest high standards with all the polyurethane foams being Certi-PUR-US certified, and the materials being to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified. Meaning it's interdependently tested for the presence of over 300 harmful substances. So you can rest assured, it's safe for you and children to sleep on, without having to worry about toxic chemicals coming off the mattress.

A few final thoughts, the bed, has easy to carry side handles which are a nice touch on the already great design. You get free delivery, 100-night trial, free returns, 10-year warranty, and an incredibly comfortable mattress. Plus an extra $100 of the Macoda mattress with our discount code "SLEEPBETTER". We also highly recommend the Macoda pillow if you're looking for an upgrade.

Ergoflex (Best for bad backs)

ergoflex mattress

The Ergoflex 5G Memory Foam Mattress is the original mattress in a box company. They have stood the test of time, and unlike most mattress in a box brands they have been in business longer than the 10-year warranty of their beds.

Initially, the Ergoflex was designed to compete with the popular TEMPUR mattress, but at a more affordable rate. They did this by coming up with the bed in a box design, cutting out the expensive showrooms, and extra shipping costs passing on the saving to you.

However, you will find this mattress slightly more expensive than other brands, costing $1,499, making it one of the priciest on our list. Yet, not everything is judged on price; this bed has over 3000 5-star reviews on Choice and Product Review. Plus the design is made to have orthopaedic pressure-relief making it the number one pick for the best bed for back backs category.

Ergoflex is recommended by an Australian back doctor saying "I recommend this mattress to patients as part of a multi-modal treatment for back and neck pain." The reason we recommend it for Australians with back backs, and so do many other people, is because of the billions of spherical shaped open cell Ergoflex™ high-density foams, making it designed to be an orthopaedic pressure-reducing mattress.

Overall, Ergoflex has mastered the art of pressure relief; it has a couple of drawbacks being only a 30-day trial and is slightly more expensive than it's competition. Still, you might be able to find it on a sale saving a few bucks so make sure you check out the claim deal button.

Pick if...

... You need more pressure relief, or you always wanted a TEMPUR, for a fraction of the cost.

Koala (Most Popular)

Koala mattress

It's hard to look for a mattress in Australia and not find the Koala mattress. Koala has a dual foam layer construction which includes Koala's 'Kloudcell' foam (made to be breathable) and support foam. The foam is designed and patterned by Koala to be open-cell, ensuring airflow through the mattress, which is excellent for Aussie summers.

However, a lot of people say the mattress is still too warm to sleep on; this could be because both layer are memory foam, and it's known for retaining heat. We don't think this will be too much of an issue, but it might affect people living in Queensland, Perth or the Northern Territory.

The Koala mattress shot to fame with the viral wine glass test, which means there is zero partner disturbance in the bed meaning if you get up in the night you won't wake up your partner, or them wake you up. The shipping time is quicker than Amazon with only 4 hour delivery in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. Everywhere else, delivery is still fast and free.

As a nice touch, the bed is Australian made (made in Sydney) and is eco-friendly. Plus they partner with the WWF and donate a percentage of every mattress to koala preservation.

Ecosa (Best for kids)

Ecosa mattress

Isn't every mattress great for kids? Well yes but Ecosa stands out because of 3 reasons: It's customisable firmness, breathability, and the waterproof cover. Children tend to be more restless at night and find it harder to cool down, so the G7 gel-infused foam and open-cell foam helps with the airflow and contracts this problem.

We love the unique feature of a waterproof cover on the Ecosa mattress, making it great for spills or accidents, which Kids are more prone than adults. The cover also helps kids with allergies because the inner cover has tightly woven microfilaments to protect against dust mites and bacteria.

And lastly, you can change up the firmness of the bed from - medium, medium-firm, and firm. Which is especially useful for growing kids who might prefer a different firmness after a year or for anybody who is a fussy sleeper.

Pick if...

... You need a bed for growing kids.

Onebed mattress

Onebed is an all-foam mattress known for its softness and support, making it excellent for side sleepers. OneBed's interchangeable top layer can be changed for a medium, medium-firm, or firm nights sleep. You can switch between memory foam and latex, both having their benefits.

Using latex will increase the airflow on the surface, improving breathability. Plus this will make the bed towards the firmer side and give you some more bounce.

Changing to the two different levels of memory foam's will give you a softer feel than the latex layer and give you more pressure relief. The drawback is that memory foam retains heat, and can be soft for some people.

OneBed also comes with a 15-year warranty, which is better than most beds you buy online. However, every mattress on this list has at least a 10-year warranty.

The queen mattress costs $1050, so it's more costly than most brands but still competitive, and you get a 125 night trial period.

The breathable materials used like gel-infused memory foam and the open-cell natural latex underneath give great support and are designed with warm Australian nights in mind. These layers combined with the springs is the reason we think it's the best bed for hot sleepers.

Summing it up, Eva is excellent for maximising support without compromising on letting the mattress breathe, making it great for people who are naturally hot when sleeping but prefer to sleep cold and comfortable.
