The Sunset is the softest mattress in the Helix Sleep standard collection. It has the most traditional memory foam feel and contours around the body better than any other Helix standard mattress, making it the best mattress for side sleepers. The Sunset’s comfort layer contains soft memory foam, so you’ll sink in and feel hugged, especially if you sleep on your side. Helix designed the bed to provide side sleeper support for petite body types, but average-weight sleepers who enjoy a very plush feel may find it comfortable as well. Although it shares a similar firmness setting to the Helix Moonlight, the Sunset has more of a “traditional” memory foam feel while the Moonlight has a neutral foam feel, meaning that it doesn’t feel distinctly like memory foam. The Moonlight also provides a bit more support for petite back and stomach sleepers.

The Helix Moonlight mattress is advertised alongside the Sunset as having a “Soft Feel.” While it is soft, it doesn’t offer a sinking sensation that memory foam purists tend to enjoy. It uses the brand’s proprietary Helix Dynamic Foam in the comfort and transition layers, which together create a neutral, gentle buoyancy for the sleeper. This bed is great for petite back and stomach sleepers, but we also recommend it as a mattress for combination sleepers who switch primarily between their back and stomach. The Helix Moonlight can also work for petite side sleepers who don’t enjoy a memory foam feel.

The Helix Midnight is the brand’s most popular model, with a medium firmness level that can suit side, back, stomach and combination sleepers. It has a classic memory foam feel that’s reminiscent of Tempur-Pedic mattresses, but it’s also responsive and supportive thanks to the pocketed coil core and transition layer of latex-like Helix Dynamic Foam. The versatility of the Helix Midnight also makes it one of the best mattresses for couples who fall into the average-weight category. The Helix Dusk, the brand’s other medium firmness bed, has a neutral foam feel and slightly more support. If you’re having trouble deciding between the two, we recommend the Midnight for those who have aches and pains, enjoy the feeling of sleeping “in” their mattress and spend more time sleeping on their sides.

Like the Helix Midnight, the Dusk is a hybrid mattress with a medium firmness level. On our mattress firmness scale, we think both the Midnight and the Dusk fall around a 6/10 firmness level: a “medium” firmness. However, the Dusk is designed to feel like more neutral foam as opposed to the Midnight’s memory foam feel. Helix achieves this by placing its responsive, supportive Helix Dynamic Foam in the comfort layer of the Dusk. While you won’t experience as much pressure relief as you would on the softer Midnight or Sunset mattresses, you’ll most likely feel supported in any sleeping position atop the Helix Dusk. The top layer of foam in this mattress also gives it slightly more bounce than the Midnight, which may appeal to combination sleepers and those who want more responsiveness.

As the second-firmest mattress in Helix Sleep’s standard line, the Twilight has a firm feel but offers pressure point relief with a top layer of memory foam. If you sleep primarily on your side but enjoy a firmer bed, this could be a good option for you. The Twilight is a good mattress for back sleepers and stomach sleepers who need a firm bed but also want pressure relief to prevent aches and pains. The Twilight will feel more supportive than the Dusk and Midnight beds (each of which has a medium firmness), but it isn’t going to feel quite as firm as the Helix Dawn. See our list on the best mattress for back pain for other firm mattresses that still provide pressure relief in crucial areas.

See our Helix Twilight mattress review to learn more.

The Dawn is the firmest bed in Helix’s standard line and is rated 8 out of 10 on our mattress firmness scale. Helix recommends this mattress for stomach sleepers and back sleepers that are average-weight and heavyweight. We also think it’s also a good choice for combination sleepers who like to sleep “on” their mattress. Unlike the Twilight, the Dawn has a layer of Helix Dynamic Foam in both its comfort and transitional layers. Each of these layers work to give the bed a bouncy, supportive feel throughout. If you prefer feeling lifted and supported as opposed to hugged on a firm bed, the Dawn is a great pick.

All six Helix standard mattresses feature a polyester cover, a transitional layer of Helix Dynamic Foam and 8” pocketed coils over a high-density base layer. The main difference between the six beds is in the comfort layers, which contain either memory foam or Helix’s proprietary latex-like foam, depending on the model. Because the construction is fairly similar, each bed’s firmness level and top foam layer are the most important factors when considering whether it will work for you. In general, Helix’s softer mattresses (the Sunset and Moonlight) are well-suited for lightweight sleepers, and the medium Midnight and Dusk models are popular among average-weight sleepers. The firmer Twilight and Dawn beds work for some heavyweight individuals and for average-weight sleepers who like firm mattresses.

Other Considerations: Cooling, Back Pain and Couples

All Helix mattresses are designed to sleep cool, making them some of the best mattresses for hot sleepers. The pocketed coil support core provides ample room for airflow. Though the cover doesn’t feel cool to the touch, it has a stretchy feel that aids in overall breathability. The Helix mattresses made with memory foam may absorb slightly more heat than those with Helix Dynamic Foam, but the difference shouldn’t be noticeable to the average sleeper.

As long as you choose a Helix Sleep mattress that’s a good fit for your body type and sleeping position, you should also experience great pressure relief. The comfort layers in these beds actively work to alleviate tension along the spine and at the hips and shoulders, regardless of whether they’re plush, medium or firm. If pressure relief is your top priority, however, we recommend choosing a model with a memory foam comfort layer to provide relief to joints like the elbows and shoulders.

If you sleep with a partner and are concerned about being awoken by their movement throughout the night, motion isolation is worth some extra consideration. The firmness level and construction of each Helix model will determine each bed’s motion isolation capabilities. Across the board, the Helix beds with memory foam (the Sunset, Midnight and Twilight) absorb more motion than those with bouncier Helix Dynamic Foam (Moonlight, Dusk and Dawn). And as a rule, softer mattresses also absorb more motion than firmer, more responsive options.

How Construction Impacts The Feel of the Mattress

The Helix beds share a similar construction, but each has a different feel when the sleeper rests atop the comfort layer. All of these beds balance support and relief thanks to the hybrid design, and the mattresses also sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses because of the airflow through the pocketed coil layer. Though the firmness levels and top layer materials vary, Helix beds all offer good pressure relief and edge support to help alleviate tension and maximize the surface area of the mattress.

When deciding between two mattresses in this line that have similar firmness levels, the top layer of comfort foam is the most important consideration. For example, the medium Helix Midnight has a memory foam top layer, while the medium Helix Dusk has a neutral foam top layer. This makes the Midnight slightly better for side sleepers and those who need more pressure relief, while the Dusk is better for people who like a neutral foam feel and sleep on their backs or stomachs.

Helix Mattress Warranty, Shipping, Sleep Trial & Returns

All new mattresses from Helix ship as a bed-in-a-box and typically arrive within five to seven business days. Customers may notice a slight odor when they first unbox the Helix mattress, especially if it’s one of the models that contains memory foam. Still, any off-gassing odor should dissipate within two to three days.

Helix Sleep offers a 100-night sleep trial period when you purchase a mattress from its standard line. Like many other mattress companies, Helix requests that consumers keep the mattress for at least 30 nights before initiating a return. (It typically takes the body 30 nights to adjust to a new mattress.) If you’re not satisfied with the bed but don’t want to return it, you can request either a firm or soft mattress topper from Helix at no additional cost. Customers can contact Helix to initiate a mattress pickup to return it for a full refund if they’re still not satisfied after the addition of the topper. 

Helix offers a 10-year warranty with all six standard mattresses. The warranty covers sagging and indentations in the surface that are 1” or deeper. It also covers physical defects that cause the materials to split or crack and manufacturing defects in the mattress cover. If you find a defect, you must ship the mattress to Helix Sleep at your own expense. If Helix Sleep confirms the defect, they will reimburse you for shipping fees, repair or replace the mattress, and ship it back to your address for no additional charge.

Common Helix Mattress Complaints

Sleeps Hot

There are several reasons why a mattress might seem to sleep hot for certain people. Memory foam mattresses tend to cause some sinkage and may provide a “hugging” sensation, which can trap heat around the body. Plus, some people naturally have a higher body temperature than others.

Overall, the Helix mattress line is designed to sleep cool due to the lack of sinkage up top, the hybrid design with individually wrapped coils providing airflow through the bed, and the cover’s Soft Touch Design for extra breathability. It should work well for most people sleeping with air conditioning. For extra-hot sleepers, we recommend adding the Helix Ultra-Cool Mattress Pad, a topper that features cooling phase- change material that absorbs heat.

Causes Backaches

Each Helix mattress is designed for proper spine alignment and pressure relief in certain individuals. If you choose the correct model for your body type and sleep position, sleeping on this mattress should not cause new back pain or exacerbate chronic pain. If a sleeper experiences back pain while sleeping on a Helix mattress, it might be because they’ve selected a Helix mattress that doesn’t work best with their sleep style.

Since Helix offers numerous mattresses, we recommend taking the free sleep quiz on Helixsleep.com to determine which option is best for you. In this quiz, you can indicate that you experience back pain, which will help narrow down your selection to a mattress that will ease the aches. If you’re not satisfied with the bed but don’t want to return it, you can request either a firm or soft mattress topper from Helix at no additional cost to adjust the firmness level.

Poor Delivery Expectations

We also find that three to 15 days is a fairly large window that can be frustrating when it comes to delivery, but given the made-to-order nature of each Helix mattress, it’s understandable.

If you are unhappy with the standard delivery option, you can purchase white glove delivery, as well as arrange for the removal of your old mattress. In-home delivery means that delivery personnel will bring your mattress inside, unwrap it, set it up, and then remove and dispose of your old mattress. Still, you will need to be home to accept the delivery and allow the team into your house.

Too Soft for Stomach Sleepers

The Helix line of mattresses includes many models, two of which are firm enough for most stomach sleepers: the Helix Twilight and the Helix Dawn. If a stomach sleeper purchases a too-soft Helix model, then the specific mattress may not be the right fit.

We recommend taking the sleep quiz on Helixsleep.com to find out which mattress will best suit stomach sleepers, especially since the quiz will ask for the sleeper’s weight and height. After all, both of those factors can have a significant impact on someone’s sleep experience. Heavyweight stomach sleepers will want to explore the Helix Plus, specifically designed for the big and tall.

Helix FAQs

Do you need a box spring with a Helix mattress?

While it’s not necessary to make your mattress comfortable, a mattress foundation improves the durability of your mattress and protects it from mold. The warranty for all standard Helix mattresses requires a supportive base with slats no greater than 5″ apart. Platform bases, adjustable bases and box springs are all acceptable as long as they provide adequate support for the mattress. 

How is the motion isolation on a Helix bed?

None of the Helix standard models have ultra-absorbent, thick foam layers like what you’d find in a memory foam mattress. However, a particular model’s ability to distill movement varies based on the type and thickness of the comfort foam. For example, the Sunset’s soft memory foam top layer absorbs more motion and noise than its firmer counterparts containing Helix Dynamic Foam on top.

How long does a Helix mattress last?

We expect Helix mattresses to last seven to 10 years.

How does the Helix Sleep quiz work?

The quiz on HelixSleep.com matches a customer with the best mattress from the brand’s collection using sleep ergonomics and biomechanics data. To get your recommendation, you’ll answer a few questions about your preferences, body type and sleeping position.
