Before we dive into the review details, I’d like to emphasise some of the significant points about why I love this mattress. Apart from the dazzling white and grey exteriors, the following are the reasons listed why this product has my attention. It's Certi-PUR US certified, which means it's gone through rigorous testing to make sure it's free from nasty chemicals. So that means they haven’t cut corners in the quality of the foams and still managed to be very affordable. You can get the Zinus in multiple sizes (I’ve reviewed the Queen size, naturally!) and it's suitable for multiple sleeper types.
All the above points have made me a fan of this stellar product, and I’m sure you’ll love it once you get to know its many benefits. Well then, without further ado, let’s get to the thick of things.
What other people say – 4.7/5 from 83 reviews
Now that I’ve got you all up to speed with how the mattress sleeps, let’s take a look under the hood and see what it’s made of. The product comprises four individual layers, all of which contribute to enhancing the comfort factor and providing adequate support.
In the following sections, I’ll break down the layers of the mattress, so that you can get a good idea of the functioning of each.
This is the topmost layer of the mattress and is made from 3.18cm High-Density Foam. The topmost layer provides adequate temperature control, together with the right balance of comfort and softness.
Below the quilting layer is the Comfort Foam layer, which is responsible for the cool and comfortable sleep that this mattress provides. At a thickness of 5.08cm, this layer ensures proper temperature control and provides the right level of sinkage.
Below the Comfort Foam is a layer of 1.27cm High-Density Foam, which contributes to the support factor. This is meant to act as a transition layer between the upper quilting and foam layers, and the Pocket Spring base, which gives this mattress its world-class support.
Now, this is the layer that I really want to talk about. The 19.05cm Pocket Spring layer of this mattress is made from individual springs enclosed in their own fabric pockets. As each of these springs is independent of each other, they react only to the pressure applied to specific areas.
This results in more significant personalised support, and the minimal motion transfer that I mentioned earlier. Along with that, this mattress provides consistent firmness throughout, which ensures top-notch sleeping experience across the entire surface.
The combination of the above four layers works to provide complete body support and the perfect combination of medium to high firmness. Plus, they help to hold my body weight amply, leading to a comfortable and well-supported sleep.
Another point that I’d like to mention is the pressure relief that this mattress provides. Contrary to open coil spring systems, which lead to the building up of pressure points, it offers greater body support, thus preventing pressure points from developing.
This platform bed matches impeccably with the Zinus iCoil mattress I’ve been talking about. Available in multiple sizes, this bed frame fits the iCoil just right, and delivers an unmatched sleeping experience.
Very few people realise this, but the longevity of a mattress depends upon the bed frame to a large extent. The Zinus Suzanne’s sturdy steel frame with wooden slats provides the right support, which helps extend the life of the mattress.
I love how the bed frame is easy to assemble and can be fixed up in no time. What’s more, foam-padded tape has been added to the steel frame to ensure noise-free use. Plus, non-slip tapes on the slats prevent the mattress from moving out of place.
The bed is available in single, double, queen and king sizes, which means it’s suitable for all mattress dimensions. Add to that the industrial styling, consisting of black metal frame together with solid pine wood finish, and you’ve got a bed that’s durable, attractive and comfortable, all at the same time.
Just pair it with a Zinus iCoil and get ready for sound sleep.
When it comes to mattresses, the proof of the pudding is in the sleeping, and I must admit that the Zinus iCoil does provide an excellent sleeping experience. As I already mentioned above, the mattress has a medium to firm feel and is best suited for side and back sleepers.
The mattress provides stable edge support; this is due to the edges of the bed, which have been tightly knit to provide adequate firmness. Plus, the surrounding tempered steel coils also contribute to enhancing the edge support.
The high-density foam used in the mattress provides ample support and just the right amount of sinkage. This means that even though you’ll get the cuddly feeling of comfort, you don’t have to worry about sinking in too deep.
I was also impressed with the minimal motion transfer of the product. My husband tends to move around in his sleep, and with other mattresses, my sleep was continually disturbed. But the Zinus iCoil ensures that his movements don’t affect my sleep cycle.
Another problem that I usually face when it comes to mattresses is that of temperature control. I tend to sleep a bit hot, and regular beds just have me waking up all sweaty in the middle of the night.
Thankfully, this mattress takes care of that problem as well. The high-density top quilting, together with the layer of comfort foam, ensures adequate air-flow and guarantees stable sleeping temperatures.
Overall, considering the sinkage, edge support, and comfortable firmness, I think this mattress is right in the Goldilocks zone when it comes to comfort. Plus, there’s no problem of being disturbed by your partner’s sleepy-time movements, which is a blessing.
When buying mattresses, one of the most important aspects that I like to pay attention to is the thickness of the mattress. Too thin, and you’re unlikely to be comfortable; too thick, and you might just have to put in extra effort just to get on the bed.
Another aspect that I also consider when choosing mattresses is weight. The weight of the bed determines how easily you can move it from one room to another, which is an essential factor if you ask me.
Thankfully, the Zinus iCoil mattress comes in multiple sizes and weights, which means you can choose any one according to your needs.
As you can well understand, the dimensions of this mattress are adequate to fit any bed, and the Queen size is just optimal for my home in terms of size and weight. In fact, most of my friends in Melbourne are using it with unmatched satisfaction, which is how I got to know of it in the first place.
The chart has a detailed breakup of the dimensions of each variant:
190 x 91 x 30cm
190 x 137 x 30cm
203 x 152 x 30cm
203 x 183 x 30cm
With so many advanced features and benefits, you might think that these mattresses are rather costly. Well, you’ll be surprised to learn that all Zinus iCoil products are very affordable, as you can see from the price breakdown below.
Prices can change and may be different to the table listed above.
The prices are exclusive of the delivery charge, which is added to the cost. Even then, I think the price is rather reasonable. This is a good thing, considering that a hefty bill is likely to lead to sleepless nights.
Apart from the many excellent and advantageous features that we’ve been talking about, the Zinus iCoil also comes with quite a few bonuses. In this section, I’m going to introduce you to these.
First, I’d like to mention the massive 10-year warranty that the product comes with. While no one expects a single mattress to last a lifetime, a decade is a rather long period, and the warranty is a testament to the quality of the product.
Naturally, it came as no surprise when I learned that the foam it uses is CertiPUR-US certified. This ensures that every unit is guaranteed to provide the best of durability and performance.
I also like how the product comes with a 100-night trial period. Just try it out for size and comfort, and if you don’t like it, you can always opt for a refund. Though I’m sure, you won’t want to let go of this one once you get some sleep on it.
Finally, I must mention the smart packing in which the mattress is delivered, compressed, and rolled. This makes it easy to unpack and roll out on any bed of your choice. On that note, I’d like to talk a bit about the Zinus Suzanne Metal And Pinewood Bed, which goes great with this product.
I’m sure that by now, you’ve already fallen in love with this mattress, and must be ready to get one. Still, before I take your leave, I’d like to go over its salient features, so that you can make sure whether this is the right one.
When it comes to softness, the Zinus iCoil has a medium to firm feel, which I rate at 6 on a scale of 1 to 10. This makes the mattress well suited for most sleeper types, even combination sleepers.
If you’re suffering from back problems, such as stiffness and spinal pain, then this product can help you out there as well. The superb pressure relief that this product offers ensures that no pressure points are developed in your pain-sensitive areas.
However, in case you’re looking for a super-soft bed, then I suggest you let this one go by. It’s soft, but not enough to offer an overwhelming sink-in experience. But if you’re a fan of adequate support and comfort, then this is the one for you.
So, now to answer the final question: should you get one? I say certainly; go for it if you love a restful night’s sleep to perk up your days. Also, it’s perfect for couples as well, due to the minimal motion transfer that it offers.
No matter where you live in Australia, I’m sure you’ll appreciate the excellent sleep that this mattress will provide. After all, at the end of a tiring day, everybody needs to get some rest. And the Zinus iCoil helps you do just that.
That’s all for now, mates; catch you later!
