WRIGHT Bedding Mattress Review
Our Verdict: Unique and high-quality, the WRIGHT Mattress is best suited for sleepers looking for the ultimate memory foam experience. The bed’s medium firmness offers that sweet spot of comfortable and soft, yet still firm and durable making this bed great for side and back sleepers. A breathable foam layer benefits hot sleepers by increasing airflow and 3 more layers of dense foam help to adapt to your movements as you toss and turn throughout the night. If you prefer a firm or traditional mattress, the WRIGHT memory foam may not be your top pick.
Sleepers the WRIGHT Mattress Serves Best
✅ Side and back sleepers
✅ Hot sleepers
Not Best For
❌ Stomach sleepers
❌ Heavier people or much lighter people, regardless of sleep position
❌ People who don’t like memory foam
WRIGHT Bedding In-Depth Mattress Review
Dozens of mattress-in-a-box companies have come out in the past year, and most of them are extremely similar. They are similar to the point where reviewing them could be a waste of time.
Occasionally, though, one of the companies distinguishes itself in some way and becomes deserving of a review.
Enter WRIGHT Bedding.
The people at WRIGHT Bedding put years of research into the creation of their flagship mattress, the W1.27. Gathering data via activity trackers manned by many sleepers around the country, WRIGHT set out to define what qualifies as good sleep. Their goal? Build a mattress that would enhance all elements essential for quality sleep, as opposed to just a comfortable bed. After 27 tries, they hit upon the W1.27, a memory foam mattress built to support, contour and breathe.
Whereas most companies are selling a 10-inch foam mattress in a box for about $900, WRIGHT is selling an 11-inch foam mattress for about twice that price. We had to see if the mattress was worth it.
The short answer: yes.
There are many desirable qualities found in the W1.27 mattress from WRIGHT Bedding. Here are a few that stood out to the Nerd team:
Significant design effort
- WRIGHT Bedding made 27 versions to find the right mix of comfort & support
- Eco-friendly materials certified by CertiPUR-US
- Mattress cover zips off to allow cleaning
- Top layer injected with cooling gel & egg carton shape encourages airflow
- Founder known to man the customer service phones on occasion
- All WRIGHT products designed in New York & built in the USA
- Find W1.27 at showrooms in San Francisco or Los Angeles
WRIGHT Mattress by Sleeping Positions
Although rare, sleeping on the back is the recommended sleeping position by physicians. This is because your spine rests in its most natural position when you lay on your back. Back sleepers need ample support in a mattress to properly support their neck and spine, but enough give to cradle the bum. The contouring of the WRIGHT Bedding memory foam should feel good to you if you sleep on your back and need to have your hips cradled. If you’re lighter than most people or heavier than most people, you may find the W1.27 either too harsh or too plush, respectively.
The most popular sleep position, side sleeping, requires a responsive surface to minimize stress on the hips and shoulders, but quality support in the torso region to keep the back in alignment.
Foam mattresses usually have the right mix of contouring and support that side sleepers need in a mattress. Shoulders and hips are curved differently and weigh different amounts. As a result, these regions of the bed should be constructed to appropriately support these different regions of the body. The foam used in the W1.27 does a good job cradling your body parts despite those competing needs.
Stomach sleeping often puts strain on the lower back, chest, and neck. Therefore, stomach sleepers need a sleeping surface that gently receives their pelvis, chest, and shoulders, which press into the mattress, yet keeps their torso elevated so it does not cause an arch in the lower back.
If you’re a light-weighted person who likes to sleep on your stomach and crave memory foam, you’ll do fine on the W1.27. However, it may be too plush for heavier stomach sleepers. You have to be careful when you sleep on your stomach. While the W1.27 will curve around your tummy, it may give too much in the hip area, causing a dip in the lower back which could throw your spine out of alignment.

The important thing to look for in a mattress is comfort and support that suits your physical needs and personal preferences.
The W1.27 is just on the firm side of medium. You’ll squish into it a bit, but it should keep you mostly in alignment unless you’re either extremely skinny or extremely heavy. Put another way, you’ll like this if you like luxury firm or somewhat plush mattresses. If you like it extra firm or super soft, this is not for you. Luckily, most people need and prefer something in the medium-firm range, which is why most companies with only one model shoot for that firmness.
Despite being a memory foam mattress, you don’t really get stuck in it as much as you do with some other brands, like Tempurpedic. It’s not as bouncy as mattresses that use latex or a latex substitute either; it’s somewhere in between.
WRIGHT W1.27 Mattress Construction
The W1.27 mattress from WRIGHT Bedding is an 11-inch memory foam mattress that increases in support as you get closer to the base layer on the bottom.
- Layer 1: Under a plush fabric cover, the top layer is 1.5 inches of a stronger-than-average, 4-pound density memory foam. This breathable foam is infused with cooling gel particles to help with overheating and cut with channels like an egg carton for airflow that will carry heat away.
- Layer 2: The second layer is 2 inches of a polymer-reinforced ZeroG, 3-pound density foam. The foam air cells in this foam layer are reinforced with polymer that improves responsiveness. It quickly adapts to your movements so you’re not waiting for the bed to settle when you shift in your sleep.
- Layer 3: The third layer is 1.5 inches of a polymer-reinforced ZeroG, 5-pound density foam. This is the same type of polymer-reinforced foam as above. The “Zero-G” effect of two of those layers is meant to cradle you instead of being too hard to accommodate the shoulders and hips of a side sleeper or the bulk of a heavier sleep.
- Layer 4: The bottom 6 inches is a support layer made of a 1.8-pound density, highly resilient poly foam that is the standard for base/support layers in foam mattresses.
WRIGHT Bedding Trial Period
The WRIGHT Bedding mattress has a 120-night, “risk-free” home trial period. They don’t say anything about needing to break it in first. So you can return the mattress anytime after you receive it until the 120 days are up.
If you’re unhappy with the mattress, they’ll come and pick it up for you and give you a full refund. Most direct-to-consumer companies offer a 100-day trial; WRIGHT gives you an extra 20 sleeps.
WRIGHT Mattress Warranty
WRIGHT Bedding offers a 15-year guarantee when 10 years is the standard in the online mattress industry. It will cover any material defect or sagging unrelated to wear and tear. The warranty doesn’t clearly state how big of a sag. Normally companies require the indentation to be at least 1-inch deep and is visible when you’re not on the bed itself. Because the foam that WRIGHT uses are more dense than average, you can expect a good return on your investment, i.e. for a large portion of that 15-year period.
Delivery & Setup
WRIGHT Bedding will ship free throughout the U.S. and Canada, which is rare in this industry. WRIGHT Bedding will deliver and set up their mattress and haul away your old mattress for free (also rare!). Other companies either charge you for the service or let you do it by yourself.
Most deliveries will arrive within 2-7 days. Once it arrives near you, someone will call to schedule a delivery, usually within 48 hours. WRIGHT’s delivery service can save quite a bit of hassle. They say they can deliver in “as little as one day,” but more realistically it will take a few days.
WRIGHT Bedding Customer Service
The fact that the warranty is kind of vague and open-ended doesn’t help matters. That won’t bode well if you face a problem with your mattress and initiate a return or a repair.
However, if you’re looking for answers to any questions related to the warranty or otherwise, you can either call during business hours or email the company. Be advised: The owner of WRIGHT Bedding will occasionally man the customer service lines. We like the fact that the owner bravely wades in like that.

The WRIGHT mattress is a good quality memory foam mattress. It has a few small benefits over others. It uses denser foams, has a 120-day trial rather than the 100 most use, a 15-year warranty rather than the standard 10-year, and they’ll deliver it for you.
You are paying for all of that service. Still, WRIGHT only offers one style (W1.27) in one firmness level (medium-firm). Your options are limited even though that single option is well-made.
Also, like most direct-to-consumer mattresses, the price covers the mattress alone. You will need your own base (box spring, platform bed, or adjustable base). In my opinion, if you are doing well enough to be able to afford the WRIGHT, you can probably also afford a luxury feature like the adjustable base.
Overall, the true downside is the price. You’re paying a lot of extra money—anywhere from $500-$800 more—for the mattress upgrades.
If an extra few hundred dollars doesn’t break your back, then the WRIGHT is a good choice. However, there are other mattresses on the market that are almost as good quality and feel very similar, but for a lot less money.
