winkbed

The WinkBeds Original

  • Best For: Side, back and stomach sleepers; people with back pain
  • Price Range:  $1049–$2,049

In-depth overview of the mattress

Originally launched in 2018, the original WinkBed mattress is a hybrid mattress with a similar design to the WinkBed Plus. The main difference? The original WinkBed uses a gel-infused foam as a comfort layer, while the WinkBed Plus uses latex. Like the WinkBeds GravityLux mattress, the original WinkBed comes in three discrete firmness levels that should work well for a variety of sleep positions.

winkbed plus

The WinkBeds Plus

  • Best For: Heavyweight sleepers and stomach sleepers
  • Price Range: $1,249–$2,199

In-depth overview of the mattress

Designed specifically for heavyweight sleepers, the WinkBed Plus mattress is a hybrid bed that uses a thick latex layer above reinforced steel coils for extra durability and support. The WinkBed Plus only comes in one firmness level—an eight out of 10 on our firmness scale—and should work exceptionally well for heavyweight stomach sleepers or back sleepers.

WinkBeds EcoCloud

  • Best For: Earth-conscious shoppers and back sleepers
  • Price Range: $1,299–$2,399

In-depth overview of the mattress

If you never forget to bring your reusable bags to the grocery store, the eco-friendly WinkBeds EcoCloud mattress could be ideal for you. This all-natural mattress uses organic cotton and wool in the top layer of the mattress, following those materials up with a thick layer of earth-friendly latex. While the EcoCloud only comes in one firmness level, it’s a 6.5 out of 10 on our firmness scale: great for back sleepers and lightweight stomach sleepers.

winkbeds gravity lux

The WinkBed GravityLux

  • Best For: People who like an all-foam feel; side sleepers
  • Price Range: $1,099–$1,999 

In-depth overview of the mattress

Perhaps the most unique mattress out of the WinkBeds line, the GravityLux mattress is an all-foam bed that still has a high-quality feel. The GravityLux mattress is priced similarly to the original WinkBed mattress, but we wouldn’t consider either bed a “budget” mattress. Still, it’s a great investment piece if you enjoy the feeling of an all-foam mattress or want flexibility in terms of feel (the GravityLux comes in three firmness levels).

Here at Mattress Nerd, we classify lightweight sleepers as weighing < 130 lbs., while average-weight sleepers are between 130-230 lbs. and heavyweight sleepers weigh over 230 lbs.

It’s probably evident enough from the chart above, but the WinkBed mattress in the soft, luxury firm, or firm firmness level will provide the most versatile sleeping experience for stomach, back, and side sleepers alike. After all, it is one of the best customizable mattresses. Just be sure to choose the correct firmness level of the WinkBed mattress at checkout, and you should be well on your way to a supportive sleep.

Heavyweight sleepers of all sleep types will likely be well served by the WinkBed Plus model, while side sleepers should appreciate the softer feel of the GravityLux model. Finally, the WinkBeds EcoCloud has a medium-firm firmness level that should work well for back sleepers. 

Other Considerations: Cooling, Back Pain and Couples

Cooling 

If you’re a hot sleeper worried about waking up sweaty at night, you’ll likely find a mattress within the WinkBeds line to help you maintain a comfortable body temperature. According to our experience, the most cooling luxury mattress in the WinkBeds line is the WinkBed Plus. The WinkBed Plus uses a quilted TENCEL cover that feels refreshing and cool, and the Plus is a firmer mattress that won’t allow sleepers to feel bogged down. While the original WinkBed is a close second in cooling to the WinkBed Plus, the original model uses a gel-infused foam comfort layer while the Plus uses naturally cool latex.

The GravityLux, a completely foam mattress, likely won’t be the best mattress for hot sleepers. As a rule, memory foam mattresses aren’t ideal for hot sleepers. But the innerspring mattresses in the WinkBeds line allow for great airflow. The EcoCloud’s uses all-natural cotton and wool in its top layer, which is an eco-friendly way to encourage breathability. 

Back Pain 

Back pain is all-too-often caused by one factor: a mattress with a firmness level that fails to match one’s preferred sleep position or body type. It’s that simple. For example, when a stomach sleeper sleeps on a soft mattress, the bed likely won’t offer enough lumbar support to keep the hips aligned on the mattress. Side sleepers want a mattress that offers contouring and pressure relief, allowing the hips and shoulders to sink into the mattress and encourage proper spinal alignment. See the best mattresses for back pain for more suggestions. 

Because the WinkBeds line of mattresses offers models that run the gamut of the firmness scale, sleepers sensitive to lower back pain should be able to find a mattress that suits their sleeping position. The high-density firmness level of the EcoCloud mattress should help relieve back pain in back sleepers, while the “softer” version of the original WinkBed could be a great mattress for side sleepers.

Both the original WinkBed and the GravityLux mattress offer several discrete firmness options. Still, they’re different in other regards: the WinkBed offers a Euro pillow top for relief on pressure points, while the GravityLux uses a dense foam layer for back support. 

Couples

If you sleep with a partner, you want a mattress that will support the preferred sleeping positions of both people while cutting down on motion transfer and maintaining durability: If you’ve ever slept on an uncomfortable old mattress with a partner, you might have noticed how important durability is in mattress design. 

If you’re a couple who is mostly concerned with movement-free sleep, it might be best to skip the pocketed coils—present in the original WinkBed, WinkBed Plus and EcoCloud—for an all-foam support layer. The all-foam support system of the GravityLux should cut down on movement at the source. Still, the WinkBed Plus is a firm mattress that should be good for larger-bodied couples and people who want an online mattress that oozes with showroom quality.

What Sets it Apart Reinforced edge support in coil system  Made specifically for heavyweight sleepers Transition layer of targeted support foam  Wool and certified organic cotton cover for natural breathability 

How Construction Impacts the Feel of the Mattress

Because the WinkBed Plus and the WinkBeds EcoCloud each include a layer of latex, we experience these mattresses as slightly bouncier and more responsive. The all-foam GravityLux mattress will have more of a balanced foam feel, and the original WinkBed uses a combination of foam and coils (a “hybrid” mattress, as we say in the industry) to provide shoppers with a traditional hotel-bed feel.  

The WinkBed Plus is similar to the original WinkBed, but includes a durable latex layer to make it even more supportive for heavier people. The brand applied its “sleep well, live well” philosophy to an underrepresented group in the market by making a quality, durable mattress for people who carry more weight. Though all WinkBeds mattresses are backed by a Lifetime guarantee, we’d estimate that the WinkBed Plus will be the most durable mattress out of the entire line.

WinkBeds Mattress Warranty, Shipping, Sleep Trial & Returns

Warranty

WinkBeds offers a lifetime limited warranty on all of their mattresses for the original owner. If any of the covered issues crop up with your mattress, WinkBeds will replace the mattress in the same size for free. The warranty primarily covers problems due to material defects: for instance, an inexplicably cracked layer of foam. Workmanship errors are also covered under the WinkBeds warranty, as well as visible sags measuring more than 1.5” deep. 

Note that firmness changes resulting from normal use aren’t covered under the warranty, nor is normal wear and tear or damage stemming from the use of an improper bed frame.

Shipping

WinkBeds mattresses ship for free and should arrive 7 to 14 days after you order it. It takes 3 to 5 days to make the bed (and all WinkBeds mattresses are handmade to order, so patience is a virtue here). WinkBeds delivers to the contiguous U.S. only. Another thing unique to WinkBeds: their mattresses will ship in a box that is the full size of the mattress itself. It won’t be compressed like most other bed-in-a-box mattresses. It’s ready to go and at full size once you free it from the box, so you won’t need to allow the mattress to expand.

Sleep Trial and Returns

WinkBeds gives you 120 days to road test their mattresses. While some other brands offer longer trial periods, 120 days is still a competitive policy. If you don’t like the mattress, just call the company before the 120th day. They’ll work with you to set up an exchange or free return, “No questions asked” and you’ll get a full refund. If you’re exchanging the mattress, you’ll pay $49 to help offset whatever state or local recycling fees exist. But here’s the cool part: If you’re exchanging a mattress, WinkBeds will pick up the unwanted bed and drop off the new one on the same day so you’re never without something to sleep on.

“Any Reason” 50 Percent off Replacement Option

WinkBeds also gives customers a one-time-only, 50-percent off replacement guarantee “for any reason” after the return period has expired. This means that if you ever just want a new WinkBeds mattress down the line, something firmer or softer, or you’re just ready for a new mattress, you can pay just 50 percent of the current retail price for the new mattress. You’ll also pay $99 for white glove delivery and handling and $60 to haul away the older mattress. Customers can only do that once, but it’s a unique perk and, frankly, kind of a steal.

WinkBeds FAQs

Are WinkBeds good mattresses?

That’s such a tricky question, because no mattress is perfect for everyone. But we think the WinkBeds line of mattresses will be good for you if you are ready to invest in a high quality hybrid mattress. Heavyweight sleepers will also particularly appreciate the WinkBed Plus mattress.

Do I need a box spring with my WinkBeds mattress?

No, you don’t need a box spring with any WinkBeds mattress. All the mattresses from the WinkBeds brand are compatible with most supportive bases. WinkBeds mattresses are even compatible with adjustable foundations, and the brand sells a platform bed frame if you need a compatible frame. 

Will my WinkBeds mattress help keep me cool at night?

It depends on which WinkBeds mattress you choose! While we wouldn’t necessarily recommend the WinkBeds GravityLux for the hottest of sleepers (all-foam constructions don’t exactly made for the most breathable rest), the WinkBeds EcoCloud combines perforated and breathable coils for a bed that’s made for hot sleepers.
