Sleeping on the WinkBed
FIRMNESS AND SUPPORT
WinkBeds has a firmness rating of 6 out of 10 ( 10 being the firmest). The mattress has two notable features that give it a comfortable feel. The first is a HyperSoft foam layer that cradles and contours to the sleeper. The second is the pocket springs beneath that provide firmness, but are softer than steel springs. The result is an incredibly comfortable bed that gives a moderate amount of hug.
The support of this mattress comes from the coils in the layers beneath. Coils provide a much better response than latex, and it shows with the WinkBed. This mattress uses two very different types of coils. One variation is pocketed coils, and the other is steel. The top pocketed coils provide the comfort, while the bottom steels coils provide the support.
Sinkage and motion transfer
This mattress had a sinkage of 2″ when laying in the middle of the bed. This depth is around the right amount we would look for in a mattress of this firmness. Sleepers will feel the bed hug their body a little, but won’t feel like they are sinking. The WinkBed also has a moderate amount of motion transfer. Spring mattresses tend to have more horizontal transfer than their latex competitors. WinkBed bridges the two with their spring bed interior, but foam surface. The result is minimized motion transfer, but still some springiness.
Temperature and Off-Gassing
The spring layers, Tensel top fabric, and cooling gel all work together to create a well-ventilated mattress. This bed does a great job pulling the heat away from the sleeper. Customers can expect this bed to stay cool, even in a hotter room.
We found no noticeable off-gassing with the WinkBed. We do warn customers that each mattress does have a slight smell when opened, but this goes away within an hour. We only remark on smell when it stays for over a day or two.
