Although it was only founded in 2016, Polysleep has quickly made a name for themselves in both their home country of Canada and the U.S. Locally made and designed, the brand specializes in high-tech foam mattresses that aim to fix a lot of the signature problems associated with foam, like heat retention and lack of edge support. Currently, Polysleep offers three mattresses in its product line: the Origin, the Polysleep, and the Zephyr. For the purpose of this review, we’ll be focusing on the brand’s flagship mattress, the Polysleep.
Like all the mattresses in Polysleep’s line-up, the Polysleep mattress contains a perimeter of integrated edge support in its middle layer. Made of thick foam, it prevents the edge of the mattress from sinking or sagging, as most non-hybrid foam mattresses do. In addition to the transitional layer, the mattress has two other layers: the top-most layer is made out of antimicrobial, viscoelastic foam, while the bottom layer is made out of high-density foam, which acts as a foundation. Additionally, the whole mattress is encased in a liquid repellant cover.

On a scale of 1-10, the Polysleep mattress falls at a 5.5, or a solid medium, in firmness. This means it conforms quite well without sinking and is quite versatile. This firmness best suits people weighing between 130 and 230 lbs, as well as those who sleep in any sleep position. As with all foam mattresses, the Polysleep will slowly increase in softness over time. This is the only firmness level that the Polysleep is available in.
Polysleep mattresses can be shipped anywhere in Canada and the U.S., including Canadian Territories and Alaska and Hawaii. You can buy directly from Polysleep’s website or in-person from partnering stores around both Canada and U.S.A. Polysleep products are not available for sale from third-party retailers like Amazon.
The Polysleep mattress is made of four layers of polyurethane foam, three horizontal and one vertical. The top layer is a 3.0 lb viscoelastic hybrid foam, while the transitional support and high-density base layers are both made out of 1.8 lb foams. Additionally, a 2.0 lb foam layer makes up the support frame, and the whole thing is encased in a liquid repellent cover made out of mesh.
Polysleep ships free to any location in Canada and the contiguous U.S., with extra delivery fees for Hawaii and Alaska. It takes around one to two business days for orders to be processed, and then an additional two to seven business days for shipping to be completed.

Polysleep Mattress Performance
For sleepers who share a bed, motion isolation properties are one of the most important features to consider. Traditionally speaking, the best mattresses for motion isolation are those with plenty of conformity and cushion. Like other all-foam mattresses, the Polysleep mattress isolates motion exceptionally well. The viscoelastic foam in the top layer conforms around the body and muffles movement, making sure that neither you nor your partner will be woken up when one of you shifts positions or gets up at night.
One of the Polysleep’s biggest selling points is its exceptional edge support. While most all-foam mattresses lack a reinforced perimeter, the Polysleep mattress includes a thick perimeter of high-density foam in its transitional layer. The perimeter helps to ensure that the edges of the bed are as firm as its center and that the edges won’t sink or sag as much when you sit or sleep on the edges of the bed.
Since foam naturally traps heat as it conforms to a sleeper’s body, the Polysleep mattress will sleep hotter than a hybrid bed. To combat this, Polysleep’s mattress uses open-cell foam throughout its top layer to promote airflow. Many reviewers report that the Polysleep stays cooler than many memory and all-foam beds on the market. However, if heat retention is a primary concern for you, consider investing in a hybrid mattress or a higher-end polyfoam bed that incorporates copper or cooling gels in its top layers.
Off-gassing refers to the non-toxic smell that comes off of new mattresses when you first unbox them. Typically, this scent takes anywhere from a few hours to a few days to dissipate entirely. As with all foam and latex mattresses, you should expect some level of off-gassing.
Traditionally, all-foam mattresses offer less support than innerspring, hybrid, and even some latex competitors. However, due to the density of the base layer and the edge support of the transitional layer, the Polysleep offers more support than the average foam mattress.
Foam mattresses are famous for their signature “hugging” feel, contouring quickly to the body to provide softness and cushioning to any pressure points. Because it’s made out of three layers of foam, including a soft transitional layer, the Polysleep is no exception. Additionally, because the topmost layer is made out of viscoelastic polyfoam, the Polysleep offers superior resiliency as well, meaning it will regain shape more quickly than many all-foam beds.
As a synthetic foam bed, the Polysleep generally won’t be as durable as a hybrid, innerspring, or natural latex mattress structurally-speaking. One often-overlooked factor in mattress longevity is stain and germ resistance. Polysleep’s topmost layer is antimicrobial and the entire mattress is encased in a liquid repellent cover, it’s more durable than most foam competitors. Not only will the mattress be less likely to harbor bacteria and allergens than competitors, but you won’t have to worry as much about stains, spillage, or smells. As with other synthetic foam beds, the Polysleep won’t generally won’t be as durable as a hybrid, innerspring, or natural latex mattress structurally-speaking.
For a mattress to be good for sex, it needs to have plenty of bounce. Because of this, foam mattresses’ signature “hugging” conformity is both a blessing and a curse. Although this makes them great for motion isolation and cushioning, it also means they lack the bounce and responsiveness ideal for sex. The Polysleep’s topmost layer is made out of viscoelastic foam, which makes it more responsive than other foam mattresses.
The Polysleep mattress offers exceptional noise control, even with its reinforced edge support. Because this perimeter is made out of foam and not metal, it won’t squeak or creak the way an innerspring or hybrid mattress would.
How Do Customers Rate the Polysleep Mattress?

What Type of Sleeper is Well-Suited to a Polysleep Mattress?
Side Sleepers: Because the Polysleep mattress is a medium firmness, it works well for sleepers of any position. Additionally, side sleepers will appreciate the conformity of the top-most layer, which will keep their pressure points cushioned. Meanwhile, the foam’s responsiveness, as well as the reinforced edge support, will keep their spines aligned and their bodies from sinking too far into the bed. Side sleepers above 230 lbs may want to look for a firmer mattress, while those below 130 lbs may want to look for something a little softer.
Back Sleepers: Back sleepers, in particular, will take well to the Polysleep mattress, because the integrated edge support means it will stay flat and even throughout, while the mattress’ conformity will make sure that the hips and the shoulders receive the pressure point relief they need. That said, back sleepers above 230 lbs may want to look for a firmer mattress.
Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleepers need the most support around their mid-sections and chests, which means they typically don’t work well with foam mattresses that sink in the middle. However, because the Polysleep has both integrated edge support and plenty of responsiveness, it stays at the same firmness throughout the mattress and won’t sink. That said, stomach sleepers above 230 lbs may want to look for a firmer mattress.
|Below Average Weight (under 130 lbs)||Average Weight (130-230 lbs)||Above Average Weight (above 230 lbs)|
|Side Sleepers||Good||Very Good||Fair|

Years in Business: Polysleep was founded in in 2016.
Physical Stores: While Polysleep doesn’t operate any brick-and-mortar stores themselves, their mattresses can be found and tried out in stores around the USA and Canada.
The Polysleep mattress is a great choice for those who want all of the softness, conformity, superior motion isolation, and noise control of an all-foam mattress, without most of the issues traditionally associated with the material. As the only all-foam mattress on the market that contains a perimeter of edge support made entirely out of foam, it keeps the mattress bolstered and supported throughout, without resulting in the noise that would come with an innerspring layer. Additionally, the Polysleep sets itself apart with a liquid repellant cover, which is rare for not only the vast majority of foam mattresses but most online mattresses being sold at this price point. Finally, the antimicrobial properties in its top-most layer make it more durable than average and suitable for sleepers who are prone to allergies or have sensitive skin.
Due to its medium firmness, the Polysleep should accommodate sleepers of most average weights who sleep in any position. It’s also an attractive choice for ethical shoppers, as the company works with many charities to donate one mattress for every ten sold.
