The Wright mattress is 11″ thick and utilizes 4 separate layers of foam.
- Top layer (comfort & cooling) – 1.5″ of visco elastic memory foam. The top layer of memory foam is designed to provide the initial comfort and cooling for the mattress. As a softer top layer, the sleeper is able to sink into the memory foam and receive a sharper contour. This layer has a PCF (pounds per cubic foot) of 4.0.
- Second layer (contour) – 2″ of memory foam (polymer reinforced). The second layer of memory foam creates more of contour for the sleeper. As the sleeper sinks through the top layer, the second layer will being to take their shape. This layer has a PCF of 3.0.
- Third layer (support) – 1.5″ of memory foam (polymer reinforced). After the contour has taken place, the third layer of memory foam provides the support for the sleeper. As the final layer before the more dense base foam, this layer also acts as the transitional layer for the mattress, creating a smoother transition from the top comfort foams to the more supportive base foam. This layer has a PCF of 5.0.
- Bottom layer (foundation) – 6″ of base foam. The bottom layer works as the foundational base for the mattress. This layer also provides the deep compression support for sleepers. This layer has a PCF of 1.8.
The cover of the Wright mattress is built from a combination of cotton and polyester, a blend that creates a soft and breathable cover. The sides of the mattress are on the thinner side, allowing for better breathability with more consistent airflow in and out of the cover. This helps to maintain a cooler sleeping surface.
Aesthetically speaking, the Wright mattress is simple. Most of the mattress is white, while lines of gray are woven into the top piece of the cover. Wright’s logo is embossed on a leather tag and sewn into the foot of the mattress, adding a nice final touch to the cover as a whole.
Firmness, Feel, & Support
The Wright mattress comes in at a medium-firm feel, landing at a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, where 10 is the most firm.
As a mattress built with the luxury state of mind, the Wright has balanced levels of sinkage and hug. With this balance comes good support in addition to a nice degree of pressure relief. That said, the sinkage is not overly enveloping by any means. As I lay down on the mattress, I only experienced about 2″ of sinkage while lying on my back. Once I rolled over, the mattress responded reasonably quickly, allowing me to change positions easily and not feel stuck in the mattress.
While I do tend to sleep primarily on my stomach, back and side sleeping were not an issue on the Wright mattress. Spinal alignment felt equal in all three positions. The push back the Wright offers rounds out the level of support in each position. Personally, I found this mattress to be most comfortable while sleeping on my side. The top is soft enough to relieve pressure points while offering a good level of hug and contour around the body.
GUIDE: How to choose a mattress
Pressure relief is one of the most notable characteristics about the Wright mattress. Built with layers of memory foam, sleepers are able to sink into the mattress and receive pressure relief to their major joint areas. As a lighter (140 pounds) sleeper, there have been times where mattresses at this level of firmness create pressure along my hips and shoulders. The Wright does a great job in this area. I did not experience any pressure points while sleeping on the Wright.
With its memory foam design, bounce is not one of Wright’s strong points. Although the mattress has an above-average response time, the foams do not respond so much that they create more bounce. With this low level of bounce comes minimal motion transfer. The Wright mattress does an excellent job of absorbing energy and dissipating it almost immediately.
Finally, cooling. The Wright mattress does a fine job of avoiding hot spots and maintaining a cooler sleeping surface. With the faster response times, this mattress does not leave sleepers feeling stuck in the foams, which can exacerbate heat retention issues.
That said, there is still a decent level of sinkage. Therefore, heavier sleepers as well as naturally warm sleepers may want to consider this level of sinkage before committing to the Wright mattress. At the end of the day, this is still a high density memory foam mattress. It is going to sleep warmer than most comparable hybrid, coil, latex, and other non-memory foam mattresses. There are not many memory foam mattresses I recommend for hot sleepers.
All mattress reviews on Sleepopolis go through the following series of sinkage and hug tests. These tests can help you understand how a mattress will feel and contour around your body.
- Lying on back – While lying in a normal position on my back, I saw 2″ of sinkage.
- Lying on side – When I rolled onto my side, I saw 3″ of sinkage.
- Sitting on edge (conservative) – In a normal sitting position slightly away from the direct edge, I saw 3.25″of sinkage.
- Sitting on edge (aggressive) – While sitting directly on the edge of the mattress, I saw 5″ of sinkage.
- Standing in the middle – With all of my weight placed at one point on the mattress, I saw 5″ of sinkage.
Keep in mind, sinkage will vary based upon body weight. As a reference point, I weigh 140 pounds.

I would recommend the Wright mattress to sleepers who:
- Want a medium-firm mattress – The Wright brings home a medium-firm feel, landing at a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, where 10 is the most firm.
- Want a memory foam mattress – As a memory foam mattress, there is a deeper degree of sinkage, less bounce, less motion transfer, and a sharper contour around the body. You will want to be sure you’re a fan of all of these characteristics before moving forward with the Wright mattress.
- Want a memory foam mattress with quick response times – The Wright mattress responds to pressure well, creating a faster response time than most traditional memory foam mattresses. Faster response times help avoid feeling stuck or trapped in the mattress.
- Want a luxurious mattress – At $1,795 for a Queen, this mattress is built with the luxury lifestyle in mind. With this higher price tag does come a bit better performance, but you are definitely paying for that extra.
