If you weigh 250 pounds or more, you may not be adequately supported on many of the mattresses currently on the market, as they are designed for lighter sleepers. But there are mattresses specifically designed for heavy people — beds meant to offer more support and help them maintain a proper spinal alignment so they can sleep comfortably. The Helix Plus is one of these mattresses.

I put the Helix Plus to the test, assessing how it feels and running it through a series of tests on factors like motion isolation, pressure relief, and cooling. In this review, I’ll detail all the results of those tests and make some recommendations for who might like this mattress.

Helix Plus Mattress

Helix Plus (June 2024)

The Helix Plus is a hybrid mattress from Helix Sleep, designed specifically for heavy sleepers. This means it was built with durability and extra support in mind. In testing, we found it to be a firm mattress, though it may feel closer to medium-firm for heavier sleepers. It should especially appeal to heavy back sleepers, as it provides sturdy support and pleasant cushioning, which could provide some lower back pain relief.

Helix Plus Mattress Overview

The Helix Plus is a hybrid mattress from Helix Sleep, designed specifically for heavy sleepers. This means it was built with durability and extra support in mind. In testing, we found it to be a firm mattress, though it may feel closer to medium-firm for heavier sleepers. It should especially appeal to heavy back sleepers, as it provides sturdy support and pleasant cushioning, which could provide some lower back pain relief.

The Helix Plus ships compressed in a box, so be sure to have a friend help you unbox it. It may spring right up once you cut the packaging, but still give it a day or so to air out before use.

Motion Isolation

You’ll likely notice the Helix Plus scored a little lower for motion isolation and trial period. In our motion isolation testing, we saw a fair amount of motion transferring across the bed, which means you may feel movement from a partner or pet on this mattress. For better options for motion isolation, take a look at our best mattresses for couples (many of which excel in this area). 

As far as trial period goes, Helix only offers a 100-night trial period. While this is a decent trial period, many other brands offer longer ones.

What Is the Helix Plus Mattress Made Of? 

Let’s take a look at what’s inside the Helix Plus mattress.

P1004649
The Helix Plus mattress in the Sleepopolis studio.

Cover – The Helix Plus has a Tencel cover, which is soft and cooling. Tencel is a lyocell made from eucalyptus. You can also upgrade to a cooling pillow top cover, for an additional fee.

Comfort Layer The comfort layer is a section of dense, responsive foam. This helps to prevent heavy sleepers from sinking too deeply into the mattress.

Transition LayerThis section eases the sleeper between the comfort layer and the support layer, and is made of what Helix calls “dynamic foam.” This foam is meant to mimic the feel of latex, meaning it is more responsive and bouncy than memory foam. This further promotes spinal alignment for heavy people.

Support Layer The main support of the mattress is an 8-inch section of individually wrapped steel coils. These coils provide plenty of support, but also allow for some airflow within the mattress.

Base Layer – Below the coils lies a thin layer of foam, what Helix calls “DuraDense Foam.” This foam provides structure to the mattress.

Helix Plus Mattress Firmness 

Now let’s talk about how the Helix Plus feels. Here at Sleepopolis, we rate firmness on a scale from 1 to 10, where 1 is the softest and 10 is the firmest. We use 6.5 as the standard for medium-firm, which is the most common mattress firmness.

To determine the firmness, we test out how it feels lying on a mattress and switching between different positions. Comparing it to the other beds we have tested, we rank it on the scale between 1 and 10.

Firmness 5.5 6.5 7 7.5 8 8

After testing out the Helix Plus, I rated it as a 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale, as I think this bed is just firmer than average. The top of the bed feels quite plush, but the overall feels highly sturdy and supportive. I will note that this mattress may feel a little softer to heavy sleepers, who may sink into the material more than I did.

Sleeping Position and Body Weight

Now let’s talk about how sleepers of different weights, in different sleeping positions may feel on the Helix Plus.

We recognize that people come in all shapes and sizes, and people of every size deserve a mattress that works for their body type. We use the weight categories light, average, and heavy to more easily categorize sleepers based on how mattresses will perform for their body type, as most mattresses are designed for the group we call “average” (130 to 250 pounds).

As a general rule, lighter sleepers don’t require as much support as average weight sleepers, and mattresses will tend to feel firmer to them. On the other hand, heavy sleepers tend to need more support than average weight sleepers and tend to sink into the mattress more.

As far as sleeping positions go, side sleepers tend to need a softer mattress while stomach sleepers usually need a firmer, more supportive one. Back sleepers are usually somewhere in the middle.

Here’s my take on how each type of sleeper will feel on the Helix Plus.

Is the Helix Plus a Good Mattress for Light Sleepers (Under 130 pounds)?

  • Light Back Sleepers –  I think light back sleepers could enjoy the Helix Plus, if they like a firm feel. It may feel even firmer to these folks than it did to me, but it should offer nice support for spinal alignment.
  • Light Side Sleepers – These sleepers will likely find the Helix Plus too firm to provide pressure relief on their shoulder and hip.
  • Light Stomach Sleepers – Light stomach sleepers should be very comfortable on the Helix Plus, as it should be firm and supportive enough to keep their hips lifted up and out of the structure.
P1004671

Is the Helix Plus a Good Mattress for Average Weight Sleepers (130–250 pounds)?

  • Average Weight Back Sleepers – I think average weight back sleepers could be very comfortable on the Helix Plus.
  • Average Weight Side Sleepers – Average weight side sleepers will likely not receive enough pressure relief from the Helix Plus, so I would not recommend it.
  • Average Weight Stomach Sleepers – These sleepers should be very comfortable on the Helix Plus, as it is firm and supportive enough to keep their hips lifted up.
P1004668

Is the Helix Plus a Good Mattress for Heavy Sleepers (over 250 pounds)?

  • Heavy Back Sleepers – The Helix Plus should be a match made in heaven for heavy back sleepers. It offers enough cushioning for their lumbar, but it is very supportive.
  • Heavy Side Sleepers – Heavy side sleepers may like the Helix Plus, as they will sink into the material more than I did. However, since it is still on the firmer side, it may not be the best option.
  • Heavy Stomach Sleepers – The Helix Plus could work for some heavy stomach sleepers, although it may not be firm enough for some to keep their hips lifted up. Similar to side sleepers, I think it is a decent option for heavy stomach sleepers, but not the best one out there.
P1004674

Helix Plus Mattress Performance

In addition to assessing how a mattress feels, we also like to run mattresses through a series of tests on performance factors like pressure relief, motion isolation, responsiveness, cooling, and edge support. Below, I’ll go over how the Helix Plus performed in these tests.

Helix Plus Mattress Pain Relief Performance

Pressure relief is an important performance factor for many people, such as side sleepers or anyone with joint pain. We like to test a mattress’s pressure-relieving abilities with a heat-mapping pressure map. This device is a mat we lay on top of a mattress. Then we have a tester lay on top of the mat and it uses thermal imaging to create a color-coded graphic indicating where pressure is building up on that tester’s body.

PressureMap HelixPlus

As you can see, the pressure relief results for back sleeping are excellent. There is little to no pressure buildup in this position. For side sleeping, the results are less impressive. With some noticeable pressure points forming, this indicates side sleepers may not be comfortable on the Helix Plus.

Motion Transfer

If you’ve ever shared a bed with a partner or a pet, you know how important motion transfer can be in a mattress. Motion transfer is the amount of movement that travels through the mattress when it’s touched or disturbed. So if you’re someone who wakes up easily, you’ll want a mattress that’s good at isolating motion.

We come up with our motion-transfer score using a few different tests. The first one is simple: we just lie down on the mattress with a colleague, roll around, and see how much of each other’s movement we feel. We also place a full wine glass on the mattress, and see how much the wine moves around with us. If the liquid has zero to little movement, then it’s a safe bet that the mattress has low motion transfer, which is what you want to see.

Finally, there’s our seismometer test. This involves dropping a 10-pound steel ball from heights of four inches, eight inches and 12 inches, then measuring the disturbance it causes: the bigger the lines on the graph, the bigger the disturbance and the higher the motion transfer.

These results are just okay. While not terrible, the results indicate you will feel some movement from a partner on the Helix Plus, so if you share the bed and are easily disturbed by movement, the Helix Plus may not be the best for you. However, if you are a deep sleeper, it may not bother you.

Responsiveness

We like to assess how responsive a bed is, because it shows how easy it is to move around on the bed. This is relevant for combination sleepers, who change between sleeping positions, as well as for people with mobility issues and for having sex. 

I tested the Helix Plus’s responsiveness by moving around on the bed and seeing how difficult or easy it was to change between positions. I found the Helix Plus very responsive, so I had basically no difficulty changing between sleeping positions. It took very little effort, so I think this bed is a great pick for those who need to easily move on the bed.

Cooling

When deciding how cooling a mattress is, we look at the materials it’s made with and test it with a thermal gun.

Looking at the Helix Plus’s materials, I felt it should be decently cooling. It’s a hybrid mattress, meaning the bulk of the bed is coils. Coils allow for lots of airflow in the bed, preventing hot air from being trapped. Additionally, the bed has a Tencel cover, which is a material that regulates temperature well.

We also test out each mattress with a device called a thermal gun, which uses color-coded imaging to measure how much and how quickly a mattress heats up when we lie down on it. If it heats up more than 15 degrees Fahrenheit, we consider it to have poor cooling capabilities. 10 to 15 degrees indicates decent cooling, 5 to 10 degrees indicates good cooling, and less than 5 degrees indicates excellent cooling.

The Helix Plus’s temperature after I laid on it for five minutes.

After I laid on the Helix Plus for five minutes, it increased temperature by about 10 degrees, so this would qualify as decent cooling.

Edge Support

Edge support is a measure of how well the perimeter of a bed bears weight. Ideally, you want to feel as supported along the edge as you do in the middle of the bed.

P1004678

I tested the Helix Plus’s edge support by sitting and lying along the edge. When I sat on the edge, there was some slight sinkage, but overall I felt well supported. When I laid along the edge, I didn’t notice any sinkage. Overall, this indicates great edge support.

This is a good sign for heavy sleepers, as sturdy edge support can ensure the mattress is more durable and will be less likely to sag.

Helix Plus Mattress Performance For Couples

When deciding whether a mattress is good for couples, we look at motion transfer, responsiveness, cooling, and edge support. Based on these tests, the Helix Plus is a pretty decent mattress for couples. It sleeps decently cool, has strong edge support (allowing couples to maximize the surface area of their bed), and is responsive for sex. While not horrible at isolating motion, it also isn’t the best in this area, so if you and/or your partner are easily disturbed by tossing and turning, it may not work for you.

Additionally, this bed is very supportive, so it can easily bear the weight of two sleepers. I think mixed-weight couples in particular could enjoy the Helix Plus.

My Final Thoughts about the Helix Plus Mattress

Now that we’ve made it through all the tests, let’s recap with who I do and don’t recommend the Helix Plus to.

Who I Recommend the Helix Plus Mattress For

  • Heavy back sleepers should love how the Helix Plus provides support for spinal alignment, but also plush comfort in the top layer.
  • Those who sit or sleep along the edge of the bed should enjoy the Helix Plus’s sturdy edge support.
  • Light and average weight stomach sleepers should find the Helix Plus provides plenty of support to keep their hips lifted up, to promote spinal alignment.
P1004654

Who I Don’t Recommend the Helix Plus Mattress For

  • Most side sleepers will likely find the Helix Plus is too firm and doesn’t offer enough pressure relief.
  • Couples easily disturbed by motion may prefer a mattress that isolates motion better than the Helix Plus.

Helix Plus vs Saatva HD

The Saatva HD was also designed for heavy sleepers. It has zoned innerspring coils, several layers of foam and latex, and an organic cotton Euro pillow top cover. When we tested it, we rated it as a 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale.

  • Price: The Saatva HD is considerably more expensive than the Helix Plus — almost twice the price.
  • Sleeping position: We think the Saatva HD works best for heavy back sleepers, but can work for side and stomach sleepers too.
  • Cooling: With many cooling materials and breathable coils, the Saatva HD is a good option for hot sleepers.
  • Body weight: The Saatva HD is a great supportive option for people of all weight groups.

Helix Plus vs Emma Hybrid Comfort

The Emma Hybrid Comfort is a super sturdy hybrid bed, made with foams and coils. It tested well in all the couples-related performance factors, so we love it as an option for those who share the bed. We also found it to be quite firm, rating it as a 7.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale.

  • Price: The Emma Hybrid Comfort is a few hundred dollars cheaper than the Helix Plus.
  • Sleeping position: We primarily recommend the Emma Hybrid Comfort for back and stomach sleepers, because of its firm feel.
  • Cooling: The Emma Hybrid Comfort tested well in our thermal gun test, increasing by about 7.7 degrees, which indicates good temperature regulation.
  • Body weight: This supportive bed can work well for heavy sleepers, but also for light and average weight sleepers.

  • Price: The Helix Midnight Luxe is considerably more expensive than the Helix Plus, by almost $1,000.
  • Sleeping position: The Midnight Luxe is best suited to back and side sleepers, due to its softer feel.
  • Cooling: The Helix Midnight Luxe sleeps cool, thanks to its hybrid construction and cooling Tencel cover.

Helix Plus vs Helix Moonlight

The Helix Moonlight is another hybrid Helix mattress from the Core line. It offers an ultra-soft feel — we rated it as a 5.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale.

  • Price: The Helix Moonlight is about the same price as the Helix Plus.
  • Sleeping position: Being so soft and pressure-relieving, the Helix Moonlight is best for side sleepers. The foam layers allow for deep sinkage and contouring around the shoulder and hip.
  • Cooling: As a hybrid, the Helix Moonlight sleeps decently cool, but doesn’t have any special features.
  • Body weight: We did not find the Helix Moonlight to be supportive enough for most heavy sleepers.

Our Review Process

At Sleepopolis, our team of Certified Sleep Science Coaches personally test each mattress. We start by unboxing the mattress to figure out how difficult (or easy) it is to get the mattress from the box to the bed. Then, we spend time laying on the bed in different positions, taking time to assess it on our backs, stomachs, and sides. Next, we perform our Sleepopolis tests, using specialized tools to measure qualities like motion transfer, bounce, and pressure relief. Our last step is to open up the mattress and take a look at each layer. These steps allow us to give our final verdict on the mattress.
