Brand Overview

WinkBeds was founded in early 2015 and started as a direct-to-consumer brand with its signature luxury hybrid mattress. Since then, the company has diversified its product portfolio to include two other types of mattresses namely the luxury style all-foam mattress and the latex hybrid mattress. However, their original hybrid mattress is still their bestselling product.

The original WinkBeds mattress is a handmade luxurious mattress that is meticulously engineered for deep comfort and supreme pressure relief.

Construction

The Winkbeds mattress is a hybrid mattress construction. It combines a luxurious pillow top with highly supportive inner coil construction to give you the optimal blend of cuddly soft comfort and high body contouring for perfect support. It is a luxury mattress that features a loftiness of 14 inches which includes cooling gel-infused covers and foam along with plenty of individually wrapped coils. The best thing is that you can customize the Winkbeds mattress construction to your preferred firmness level. 

  • Cover– The WinkBed mattress sports an attractive Tencel cover that has a button-down quilted design. The fabric is a eucalyptus-based high-performance fabric that is naturally cool to touch because of its eucalyptus origin. It is a vegan cover with plant origins that makes it perfect for eco-friendly and sensitive sleepers.
  • Pillow Top Foam– Under the Tencel cover comes the pillow top foam layer. This layer is a Euro-pillow top design that is quilted for maximum comfort and plushness. The foam is infused with cooling gel to keep the surface nice and cool in temperature. This cooling gel ensures that the mattress does not heat up during the night with your body heat making it a good choice for hot sleepers. The quilted design also gives you a superior cushioning effect that supports and eases muscle pain, body aches, and joint tensions. The softer version of the mattress uses three layers in the pillow top section while the firmer version uses only two layers to make the surface harder.
  • Transition Layer– This layer acts as a buffer between the pillow top foam and the micro-coil layer. It allows the soft foam to cushion the body adequately without sinking into the coil structure of the mattress. The WinkBed mattress features a 2-inch-thick transitional layer in its softer mattress versions. This layer is also made of poly foam material. The firmer versions of the mattress do not have this transitional layer since the firm foam does not require additional support to prevent it from digging into the coil layer.
  • Micro Coil Layer– Directly under the pillow top foam layer comes the micro-coil layer. The micro-coil layer comprises individually wrapped micro coils with several support zones and is 2.5 inches in thickness. These support zones target the lower back, shoulder, and hip area while giving a good bounce to the mattress on the whole. The Plus option of the mattress binds these coils in groups of four to provide extra support to the mattress that will enable it to retain its recoil and spring back even under the extra weight.
  • Pocketed Coil Layer– Right after these micro coils, you have the pocketed coil system. The pocketed coils are largely responsible for the structure, balance, and bounce back of the mattress. It gives the mattress its springy feel and ensures that the mattress stays resilient throughout its lifetime. This layer has a thickness of 7-inches in all the versions of the mattress.
  • Base Layer– Lastly, you have a base layer that keeps the mattress in place and prevents it from moving or shifting with activity. This baselayer also wraps around the mattress giving it high durability and structure. The base layer is made of high-density support foam that has a thickness of 2-inches.
  • Edge Support– The WinkBed mattress comes with an "Extra Edge" support system that gives good durability to the perimeter of the bed. Hence, you do not have to worry about a lopsided mattress with this one.

Motion Isolation

A good mattress isolates the movement that happens on it in the concerned area. This allows the other occupants of the mattress to relax easily without any disturbances on the mattress. It can be very annoying to sleep or lounge on a mattress that shifts around continuously with other movements.

The WinkBed mattress has a good support system with individually wrapped coils that do a good job of concentrating the disturbance or mattress movements in one area only.  WinkBed mattress has minimal motion transfer making it a good mattress for light sleepers and sleepers with restful partners.

Given that you can customize the firmness level of the mattress, a WinkBed mattress is an ideal option for all sleeping types and weights. You have to make sure that you get the perfect firmness level that is most suitable for your sleeping style. Apart from this the other performance factors as per the sleeping style are discussed below:

  • Side Sleepers

The soft, luxury firm, and firm styles come with a Euro-pillow top layer that optimally cushions and cradles your body from the side relieving pressure on the shoulders and hips. The zoned coil layer gives support to the sleeper’s midsection area for a good spinal alignment feature. The Plus version of the mattress has a polyfoam layer that adequately cushions the body and a zoned latex layer that along with the coil structure gives the body the support it requires.

  • Stomach Sleepers

The WinkBed mattress with its zoned coil system helps in pushing your hips forwards and prevents the tummy from sinking into the mattress. This allows the body to maintain proper spinal alignment and prevents the spine from curving inwards. Apart from this, all the WinkBed mattresses have a good cozy foam layer that provides the cushioning needed by stomach sleepers. 

  • Back Sleepers

Back sleepers have it easy out of all the sleeping styles. They need a good cradling mattress that offers proper comfort to the back and supports the natural spinal curve. The mattress bounce should be adequate to prevent the buttocks from sinking too far into the mattress. The coil structure of the WinkBed mattress excels in preventing any sinkages and also gives proper cushion to the gap in the natural spine curve. This makes it perfect for the back sleepers as well.

Cooling and Temperature Regulation

The WinkBed mattress promotes optimal air circulation because of its widely spaced and individually wrapped coil system. The mattress also comes equipped with a cooling gel that absorbs your body heat and prevents the mattress from becoming hot.

  • Sleep Trial

The Winkbed mattress comes with 120 days of sleep trial. You can apply for a return during this period free of any charge. However, there is a lock-in period of 30 days on this. This means that the company asks you to try the mattress for a minimum of 30 nights before you ask for a return.

Apart from this, you can also get your mattress exchanged in this period for a different level of firmness. This change in firmness level will cost you $49 as a white glove delivery charge.
