Initial Thoughts

Now that I have slept on the NovosBed medium mattress for a couple of nights, here are my initial thoughts:

  • Medium feel – the NovosBed medium comes in at a 5-6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, with 10 being the most firm. They also offer soft and firm models if you prefer a firmness / feel that’s very soft or very hard.
  • Pronounced hug and sinkage – this mattress has a notable amount of hug and sinkage. Oddly enough, it works. The sinkage is not so deep where you feel completely enveloped by the mattress, but just deep enough to provide a comfortable sleeping experience. Additionally, the contour from the hug is very nice. The NovosBed was able to sharply form to my body without any issues. The feel is similar to the Tempurpedic Cloud Supreme mattress.
  • Minimal motion transfer – with the deeper hug and sharp body contour comes virtually no motion transfer. As my wife and I changed sleeping positions, neither of us felt the other move. This is key for those lighter sleepers who tend to be woken up by the slightest of movements.
  • Great pressure relief – probably the most notable attribute about the NovosBed is pressure relief. I never once felt as if any pressure points were created between my body and the mattress. In addition, the mattress provided a balanced level of support.

As always, if you have any questions about the NovosBed feel free to drop me a comment down below. I am happy to help!

  1. Hi Sleepopolis,

    Thanks for the site, it is great information. I bought a loom & leaf relaxed firm mattress a little over 2 months ago and am considering sending it back because it is a bit too hard.

    Before buying we had tried the tempur-pedic cloud luxe in store and liked it (besides the price). Since we are looking for something a bit softer then the loom & leaf I was thinking either the novosbed or Amerisleep Liberty, but wanted to get your thoughts on those two, and if there are any other beds we should consider.

    Thanks

    • Hi Josh,

      Thank you for your kind words!

      I’m sorry to hear the Loom & Leaf mattress not working out for you. That said, both the Liberty and Novosbed are excellent options. You’re really hard pressed to go wrong with either of these mattresses. Both offer that traditional level of sinkage and hug and are softer than the Loom and Leaf. They aren’t quite as soft as the Cloud Luxe. However, if you would describe Loom and Leaf as “a bit too hard” I feel like both the Liberty and Novosbed well be soft enough to cover that “bit” without being too soft.

      Based on everything you’ve shared, I would probably suggest going with the Liberty to begin with, due to the increased level of softness.

  2. First off, love the site! It’s so helpful. Secondly, I’m struggling to decide between Novosbed and Alexander both come soft and that’s what I’m after! Any suggestions guidance on which you prefer?

    • Thank you for your kind words, Jillian!

      Both of these mattresses are top notch. That said, they do offer fairly different feels. The Novosbed has a much more pronounced level of sinkage and hug. It feels much closer to a Tempur-pedic. Additionally, the thin cover of the Novosbed puts the sleeper in closer contact with the foams below.

      On the other hand, the Alexander has a quilted cover, which adds a degree of softness upon initial impact with the mattress. That said, the sinkage is less pronounced. The Alexander does have that memory foam feel, but the Novosbed tends to embody more of the traditional, deep sinkage and hug feeling.

      Either way, it’s hard to go wrong with one of these mattresses. It really just depends on the type of feel that you’re desiring more.

  3. I am interested in purchasing the Novosbed but concerned that even the soft will be too firm for my weight 95 lbs. Should I go with a foam/coil hybrid or perhaps the Alexander Signature instead? I sleep on my back and would like the contour feel that memory foam offers. Thanks!

    • You’re probably correct, Madelyn. Memory foam isn’t great for those who are ultra light like yourself.

      You might consider going and trying the Tempur-pedic Cloud Luxe in-store. If you like that, you’ll like the Novosbed soft.

      If not, then yes, we need to find something that has a thick padded quilted cover. These types of cover do better for creating more immediate softness for lighter sleepers. The Alexander Signature would be my first pick for you there.

  4. A few years back I purchased a Tempurpedic mattress and have found it to be far too warm! I love the mattress as far as no pressure points and comfiness, but temperature-wise it is too hot. I wake up a lot during the night throwing off and on blankets trying to regulate the temperature.
    So, tired of fighting the temperature issue of the Tempurpedic, I then purchased the Tuft and Needle and found that to be too firm. It creates pressure points in the hips and shoulders. Temperature-wise it was nice.
    The Purple Mattress looks interesting and I am considering it, but did it keep you too cool? Or was it cool enough to sleep comfortably without being awakened because you were too cold or couldn’t get warm enough?
    I am wondering what mattress you might suggest? I’m looking for the comfort of the Tempurpedic minus the heat issue and also minus the huge price tag on the Tempurpedic. Would the Purple Mattress be your top suggestion? Or is there a different mattress I should be considering to closely match the comfort of the Tempurpedic and the coolness of the Tuft and Needle?
    I haven’t read through all of your reviews on mattresses and am hoping you can help shortcut my time investigating the huge amount of options currently on the market, as well as hopefully eliminate disappointment (or rather frustration) in selecting the wrong mattress, once again.

    • The Purple mattress would definitely be a top suggestion if cooling is one of your main concerns. To answer your question about being too cool on the Purple, I was not. It slept at an a very cool temperature, but never so cool that actually felt cold. Now, if you’re looking for more of a Tempurpedic build, the Loom & Leaf mattress could be another great option. This mattress sleeps cool and possess a luxury build similar to that of Tempurpedic.

  5. Sleepopolis, my main concerns are firmness and cooling. I read a review online for Layla. I checked them out on laylasleep.com and sleepsherpa.com and I like how they’re heat test resulted in great cooling. What got me was that one side is soft and the other side is firm so I get options with one mattress. However, my main concern is that there isn’t much about them or other copper infused memory foam mattress companies online. I was wondering if you have any experience with Layla or copper infused memory foam in general?

    • Hi Anthony,

      Completely understandable. Firmness and cooling are two of the main concerns most sleepers have when purchasing a new mattress. With that said, I have had the opportunity to test the Layla mattress. While the Layla is an okay mattress, it simply didn’t create great support for my perspective.

  6. Hi Sleepopolis. I like the Tempur-pedic Cloud Supreme, just not the price tag. What Novosbed firmness would you say is equivalent?

  7. I am surprised you rated the Novosbed a 5 out of 10. Most other reviews and comments I have found on it rated it on the firmer side of medium. I realize mattress reviews are subjective so everyone is different. Just wanted to confirm you indeed got the medium Novosbed and not the soft. I have an Alexander Hybrid now which I like but don’t love as I find it to have a bit more sinkage than I would like. Your review makes it seem like the Novosbed would have even more sinkage and be even softer so just wanted to see how you would compare them.

    • Confirmed, I tested the Novosbed medium.

      You may want to double check those reviews. This is the brand new Novosbed that I tested, not their older mattresses (Aria and Harmony, I believe is what they were called). The new Novosbed in the soft is closer to a 3-3.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale.

      The total sinkage depth of the Alexander Hybrid and Novosbed medium is close, but the contour and hug is much more pronounced on the Novosbed. If you’re not enjoying the hug of the Alexander Hybrid I doubt you’d like the Novosbed.

  8. Hello, im looking for a new mattress (have always had a coil, looking to change to a foam) I’m a side sleeper, like a soft bed (always have a memory foam topper) I have upper back and neck pain, and I do toss and turn at night. I can’t decide which would be the best way to go, the purple mattress or the novosbed, (Ive also been looking at Slumber Solutions 14″ gel memory foam, but haven’t seen any reviews done by you for that one yet) or is there something that may be better? What would you recommend?

    • Based on your preferences, needs, and desires I would say either Purple or Novosbed could be a good fit.

      However, the feel difference between these two is dramatic. Novosbed has a classic memory foam feel, very close to that of Tempur-pedic’s Cloud line of mattresses. You might consider taking a trip to a store to test a few of the Tempur Cloud line and see if you like that feel.

      While there, also try the Tempur-pedic Flex Supreme. While it’s not a perfect match to the Purple, it’s the closest you’ll find in store.

  9. Hi, thanks for all the great info. Q:How is firmness actually measured? Is there an industry standard scale that can be repeatedly measured via some instrument, or is it only subjective? Thanks!

  10. Am torn between the Alexander hybrid and the Novosbed.I am a side sleeper who wants a medium feel. I am do have questions as to the spring system on the hybrid mattress. What if any material is used on the spring support level of the mattress like form or fiber and does the life of the mattress support reduce over time by the spring system. What bed is plain more softer when one goes to bed?

    • The spring level is made from 100% steel. The only fibers on the support level are the fire sock that wraps the entire comfort / support system. The spring system does not reduce the lifespan of the mattress.

      The Novosbed medium (5 out of 10) is softer than the Alexander Hybrid (5.5 out of 10)

  11. Hi Sleepopolis,

    How does the support and firmness compare to both the medium and firm Alexander? I have tried both the medium and firm Alexander and found that they ignite some back pain and tightness for me. I was hoping the Novosbed medium would be a better option for me.

    Thanks

    • Hi Eric. The support of these two mattresses is very similar. The firmness however, is notably different. The medium comes in at a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 being the most firm) and the firm sits at a 9 out of 10. With that said, there will be less sinkage in the firm Alexander compared to the medium.

      If the Alexander did not work out for you, Novosbed is a great mattress to try next. There will be much more sinkage and a sharper contour from this mattress, hopefully taking care of your back pain. In addition to that, Novosbed will send you their Comfort+ kit if the firmness of their mattress does not match up perfectly with your wants and needs.

  12. Sleepopolis, I’ve been emailing you over the past few days. Anxiously awaiting the full review on this mattress, too. Thanks for all your help!

  13. Am currently deciding between NovosBed, Nest Alexander, and Brooklyn. First, when do you think your Novos review will be up. It will help. Second, am I correct in assuming that Novos and Nest will be somewhat similar to Tempurpedic but Brooklyn (using Latex) toppers will be somewhat different. If so, any suggestions on what a good (testable) comparison to Brooklyn might be?

    • I’m working on it over the next couple of days. I’m hoping to post the full review by Wednesday for Novosbed.

      Novosbed really stands in its own category. It’s much closer to Tempur-pedic Cloud Supreme.

      Both the Nest Alexander and Brooklyn Bedding utilize traditional padded / quilted covers, this is in contrast to Novosbed & Tempur-pedic’s thin cover. The quilted covers create a sense of more immediate pressure relief and and a more classic feel. Additionally, BB’s latex layers vs. the memory foam of the others creates a more rounded contouring hug vs. the sharper pronounced hug of the Novosbed and Alexander.

      If you happen to live in NYC or California there are Nest Bedding stores where you could try the Alexander, which would also give you an idea of the BB.

    • Thanks, Sleepopolis — Great Review.

      FWIW, here’s where I’m at. We’re going to check out the Nest Alexander, Nest Hybrid (why not, I’ll be there) and Helix (the custom bed idea really intrigues me) next weekend, then make a decision.

      Wherever I buy, I’ll use your coupon code — thanks for that!!!!

    • Great idea, Ken. I think you’ll enjoy testing out all three of those mattresses in store. Thanks very much for going through my link! I really appreciate it. Sleepopolis couldn’t survive without the support of our readers…so sincerely, thank you!

      Let me know how you like your new mattress once it arrives.

  14. Would you say the NovosBed sleeps warmer that some of the other mattresses you have tested? I noticed that unlike many other mattresses it doesn’t have any kind of gel memory foam.

    Did you also get a chance to test the Comfort+ add on for the bed? I am curious if you had any opinions on that as well.

    • Some people who are very sensitive to heat may feel that it’s a touch warmer. This is less due to the lack of gel and more due to the increased hug and sinkage. Since it is designed to feel like a classic memory foam hug. You simply have more of your body in contact with foams from the pronounced hug.

      I haven’t tested the Comfort+ add just yet, but I am getting one sent to me. Hopefully it’ll arrive in time for my full review, but if not, it’ll be here within the next week or so. I’ll be getting both the soft and firm Comfort+ addon.

  15. For a first time foam bed buyer as well, how would you compare the “heat” between the Novosbed and the Alexander (all foam, not hybrid)?

    Also, what type of support do you recommend, platform slats or traditional box spring?

    Thanks

    • They are very similar, but do a great job of dispersing heat. Coil and hybrids are still going to be a little cooler, but if you have only average cooling needs I think you would find it fine.

      Personally, I’m a big fan of platform or slat beds. Aesthetically, they look really sharp. But a good boxspring or other type of solid foundation can work just as well.

    • They are very different. Both the Alexander’s have thick padded covers and have a faster foam response team.

      The Novosbed is a more classic memory foam with a slower response time and sharper contouring hug.
