Essentia Mattress Review.
Mattress Firmness And Support
Essentia makes a good number of different mattresses. Their newest mattresses are the Bionda and the Stratami. Their standard mattresses are the Classic 8 and the Energie Opus. Their top of the line mattresses are the Beausommet, Dormeuse, and Dormeuse Fior. We researched the Classic 8 for our Essentia mattress review. It is the middle of the line mattress in many respects.
The classic eight has a firmness rating of 6 out of 10(10 being the firmest). All Essentia mattresses have two layers of foam. The top natural memory foam provides the comfortable sleep. The high-density foam beneath gives the great back support. The natural memory foam is made from hevea milk (rubber tree sap). It does a phenomenal job relieving pressure, while still providing support.
Support is a big factor to look at with a memory foam top layer. Softer mattresses often lack good support for back sleepers. Our research found that the Classic 8 did a good job supporting the sleeper. We have not heard of any customers waking up with back aches or any other issues associated with poor mattress support.
The Essentia sinks around 2 inches for a normal person. This is about what we expected with a memory foam top layer. We recommend looking at the Beausommet or Startami for a bouncier, firmer mattress. Those mattresses have latex construction that provide a firmer sleep.
Coolness And Off-Gassing
Heat is often the other big issue with memory foam. Luckily the Essentia Classic 8 did a terrific job keeping sleepers cool. The Hevea milk construction of the memory foam might play a big role in the coolness. The organic cotton cover also helped the mattress breathe during the night.
There is the usual rubber like smell when opening the mattress box. The smell should quickly fade away in a few hours.
