Novosbed Mattress Review


Novosbed is a well-known Canadian company that launched in 2009 and has since earned a strong reputation. While the company is based in Canada, Novosbed also sells mattresses in the United States.

The Novosbed mattress is an all-foam mattress with three firmness options. The mattress is available in Soft, Medium, and Firm, so most sleepers should be able to find a firmness that matches their preferences. Plus, if you realize the firmness you’ve selected isn’t right for you, Novosbed can send you a free Comfort+ firmness adjustment kit to change the feel of your mattress.

The Novosbed’s advanced memory foams offer contouring and comfort. The innovative design seeks to circulate air and disperse heat better than many memory foam mattresses.

Read our detailed review to learn more about the Novosbed mattress. We’ll give you key information that can help you decide if the Novosbed is the best mattress for you.

Novosbed Mattress Overview

Novosbed Mattress

Novosbed Mattress

Available in three firmness levels that can be further fine-tuned with Comfort+ inserts, the Novosbed mattress should work for any sleeper.


Each Novosbed mattress features high-density memory foam. However, the Novosbed is available in three firmness options, each of which features a slightly different construction to produce the intended feel.

The comfort layer of the mattresses varies between firmness options. The Soft mattress uses gel memory foam, while the Medium and Firm mattresses use next-generation memory foam. The mattresses all use open-cell airflow technology in their comfort layers, which features cells that allow air to circulate through the mattress to dissipate heat.

Novosbed mattresses feature ReCore Transition Zones. This transition layer provides additional contouring, pressure relief, and motion isolation. The firmness and level of contouring in this layer vary between the firmness options. The base layers of the Novosbed mattresses feature Durabase Support Zones. This layer aims to disperse heat, provide support, and distribute body weight.

Each mattress also features a removable, washable top cover composed of stretch-knit Tencel. The cover is designed to wick moisture to help you stay cool and dry.

Additionally, Novosbed’s innovative Comfort+ package allows you to adjust your mattress firmness slightly. To do so, you unzip the mattress cover, add components, and then rezip the cover.


The Novosbed mattress comes in three firmness options: Soft, Medium, and Firm.

On the 10-point firmness scale, the Soft mattress rates around 3.5, the Medium mattress rates around 5, and the Firm mattress rates around 6.5. Because the Novosbed mattress is available in three firmness options, most sleepers should be able to find an appropriate firmness for them. Most sleepers find a mid-range firmness acceptable, so the Medium mattress is a safe bet if you’re a combination sleeper. Sleepers who weigh under 130 pounds or like a softer mattress may enjoy the Soft option. Similarly, sleepers who weigh over 230 pounds or like a firmer mattress may prefer the Firm option.


The Novosbed mattress is available in all standard sizes. The list prices for each mattress size are in the table below. Note that Novosbed frequently offers discounts, so you may be able to purchase a Novosbed mattress for less than list price.

Novosbed Mattress Breakdown

Below, we’ll share more information on the Novosbed mattress’s construction, durability, conforming, edge support, temperature regulation, off-gassing, and motion isolation. Check out our methodology to learn more about our review process.

Is it made from quality materials?

The Novosbed mattress is composed of high-quality materials. It uses durable, high-density foam that tends to last longer than other varieties of foam. The foams are CertiPUR-US certified, which means they’ve been tested for mercury, lead, formaldehyde, phthalates, ozone depleters, and other substances.

The Novosbed also uses innovative materials, including next-generation memory foam and open-cell airflow technology. The mattress cover is composed of high-quality materials, including a removable, washable cover and furniture-grade upholstery siding.

How long will it last?

Most memory foam mattresses last 6-10 years. Because the Novosbed mattress uses high-quality, durable materials, we would expect the mattress to last longer than many memory foam mattresses on the market. If the Novosbed mattress does not hold up as expected over time, a 15-year warranty provides extra protection.

How well does it conform to my body?

Each of the Novosbed’s firmness options provides conforming, though the level of conforming varies.

All of the mattresses feature plush cushioning in the top layer for conforming and comfort. The transition layer of each mattress plays a major role in how much conforming the mattress ultimately offers. The Soft mattress’s transition layer offers deep contouring, the Medium mattress’s transition layer offers medium contouring, and the Firm mattress’s transition layer offers light contouring. How much conforming you experience with a Novosbed mattress will depend largely on your weight and which firmness option you select.

Is the edge supportive?

Like most other all-foam mattresses, the Novosbed mattress lacks reinforced edges. Without reinforced edges, the foam may compress when you sit or sleep near the edge of the bed. This can create a feeling of instability. If you are concerned about edge support, Novosbed’s Firm option should offer a slightly more supportive edge than the Soft or Medium mattresses because of the firmer foams.

Does it sleep hot?

Memory foam mattresses contour to the body, which can also trap heat. While the Novosbed mattress may retain some heat, the use of open-cell airflow technology and a moisture-wicking Tencel cover promote a cooler night’s sleep than some memory foam mattresses. Because the Firm mattress does not offer as deep of contouring, it is likely to sleep cooler than the Soft or Medium mattresses.

Will it off-gas when it’s delivered?

Like other memory foam mattresses, the Novosbed mattress may initially have a new mattress smell when you unbox it. This odor is not harmful and should dissipate within a few days. Simply leave your new mattress in a well-ventilated space until it has aired out.

Will I feel my partner move during the night?

The Novosbed mattress is constructed entirely of foam, including a layer of memory foam. Foams like this traditionally do an excellent job absorbing motion. When your partner moves during the night, the Novosbed mattress should be able to absorb the motion to a significant extent. This can prevent the vibrations of the movement from being felt across the surface of the bed. If your partner tends to toss and turn during the night, the Novosbed’s motion-isolating capabilities may help reduce sleep disruptions.

Who is Best Suited for a Novosbed Mattress?

The Novosbed is a versatile mattress that can accommodate most sleep positions, weight ranges, and sleep preferences. The Novosbed’s three firmness options make it easier to find a more precise match for your firmness preferences.

The Novosbed mattress can work for most side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers. Novosbed recommends its Soft mattress for side and back sleepers, its Medium mattress for any sleep position, and its Firm mattress for back and stomach sleepers.

Sleepers of different weights often have different firmness preferences, which the Novosbed mattress can also accommodate. Sleepers who weigh under 130 pounds may prefer the Soft mattress, which can allow them to sink in more than firmer options. Sleepers who weigh over 230 pounds may prefer the Firm mattress, which can prevent them from sinking in too deeply.

Because the Novosbed mattress offers more firmness options than many mattresses, it is an exceptionally good choice for sleepers looking for an option outside of the medium firmness range. Medium to medium-firm mattresses are usually most popular, so finding soft or firm options is usually more difficult.

Since Novosbed offers a free Comfort+ firmness adjustment kit, Novosbed is also a good choice if you’re not quite sure how firm of a mattress you prefer. The Comfort+ kit allows you to adjust your mattress’s firmness to better meet your preferences, which can save you the time and effort of returning the mattress and buying a new one.

Ready to Buy a Novosbed Mattress?

The Novosbed mattress is a good choice, but before you make your purchase, you may want to know more about the sleep trial, warranty, and shipping. Read on for a quick summary of these important details.

Sleep Trial

The Novosbed mattress comes with a 120-night sleep trial. However, before you can return the mattress, you must give it a break-in period. If you are not satisfied with the mattress after 30 nights, you can order a free Comfort+ kit to adjust the firmness. If you’re still not happy after 60 nights, you can return the mattress for a full refund and Novosbed will pick up your mattress.


Novosbed offers a 15-year warranty. The first 10 years of the warranty are non-prorated. The last five years are pro-rated, which means coverage will decline. The warranty protects against defects in materials and workmanship. During the warranty, Novosbed may repair or replace your mattress if a defect is found. During the first 10 years, repairs and replacements are offered at no extra cost. For the last five years of the warranty, there is an extra charge for repairs or replacements.

Availability and Delivery

The Novosbed mattress is available through the Novosbed website. The mattress ships free in most of the United States and Canada. However, additional fees apply for shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, the Canadian Territories, and other remote areas. Expedited shipping is also available to some areas for an additional charge.
