Founded in 2017, Blello is a fairly new brand in the bed-in-a-box world, so I’m excited to get my hands on its flagship mattress. However, before I can give this bad boy a spin, I’ve got to let it decompress.
So let’s unbox this bed and get it all set up on the frame!
The Blello is built with three layers of foam, stacking up to a total 10” of comfort. The company bills the bed as the ideal medium firm mattress, so I’ll be keeping that in mind as I explore its firmness and feel.
I’ll dive deeper into all of this in my full review, but wanted to give you a sneak peek at the Blello’s different layers.
Cover – The cover is crafted out of a three-layer ticking fabric, which makes for a tightly woven and durable material. It’s also designed to be stretchy and breathable.
Comfort Layer – The comfort layer is built with 1.5” of response foam, a memory foam alternative that produces great body contouring without trapping heat. Since this material responds more quickly to pressure than memory foam, it’s going to provide quality pressure relief without that stuck-in-the-bed feeling.
Transition Layer – Blello describes this layer as its “medium firm core” and is built with 2.5” of Qualatex™ Foam. This material is kind of like latex in that its bouncy and features some solid cooling properties.
Foundation Layer – And finally, the base, which is comprised of 6” of high-density poly foam. This layer gives the bed its structure and stability.
- Pressure relief without feeling stuck – Based on the materials used in the Blello, I’d say it’s going to strike a nice balance between pressure relief and support. While you’re likely to sink through the response foam in the comfort layer, the bouncy Qualatex™ Foam is going to lift you up and keep you from feeling stuck in the mattress.
- Side sleepers – All-foam beds are typically great for side sleepers, and I predict that this will be true for the Blello as well. The soft response foam up top should contour to the shoulders and hips with plenty of cushiony support.
