Zinus Memory Foam 5 Inch Twin Mattress, Set of 2
The mattress layers
As the title says, this memory foam twin mattress from Zinus is five inches thick. It consists of 3 different layers, first one being a one inch layer of conforming memory foam. Beneath it is a one inch pressure relieving layer of regular comfort foam and the final layer is the thickest, three inch base layer of airflow high density support foam. The combination of these three layers makes this foam memory foam mattress comfortable yet supportive.
Quality of materials and certifications
This high quality mattress solution from Zinus is made of BIO foam, that is, the newest kind of healthy and clean foam that contains no chemicals such as petroleum. Instead, this foam contains natural plant oil extracts that keep the mattress fresh and reduce off gassing. As all Zinus foam mattresses, this mattress consists of only the CertiPUR-US certified, high quality foam with great durability and performance. The mattress has a basic, white color cover that provides a bit of additional comfort.
How it feels and the overall sleep experience
The Zinus Memory Foam 5 inch twin mattress is used for bunk beds, trundle beds ad daybeds. As a 5 inch mattress, it is quite thin to be able to provide good comfort and support for everyday use by adults. With this thickness, this mattress is a perfect solution for kids’ bed or a daybed that isn’t used too often. Some customers have even stated that putting both of the memory foam mattresses from this set onto one bad, one on another, made this bedding solution much more comfortable and supportive. Therefore, if you’re not planning to use each mattress for a different bed, consider placing them on top of each other for maximized comfort.
When it comes to sleep experience, the mattress does a quite good job. The memory foam as the top layer conforms to your body and creates a soft, plushy feeling. The comfort foam beneath it does a good job relieving pressure from the pressure points of your body, allowing you to feel more relaxed. As far as edge support goes, there isn’t much to expect when it comes to such a thin foam mattress. For a fully foam mattress, we can say that it provides average edge support. Same thing goes for motion transfer. There are no springs to isolate movement but the mattress doesn’t sink in too much so the motion transfer is also average. Without any cooling gel components, this mattress does not have the ability to regulate heat effectively and it might get warmed up at times. Thanks to the BIO foam and natural materials, there is little to no off gassing in this product at all! With the five inches of thickness and a high density foam layer as the base, this mattress is medium firm. It cannot be called a firm mattress but it is definitely firmer than other Zinus’ soft foam mattresses.
Pricing and other details
The set of two 5 inch memory foam twin mattresses from Zinus comes for only 112$, which is one of the best deals you can find on the market. The product comes with a 10 year limited warranty that covers all manufacturing defaults. However, there is no specific trial period listed. You attempt returning the product within the first 30 days of purchase, but keep in mind that may cause some additional costs. As all Zinus mattresses, these mattresses are compressed in a box for shipping, which means you should open them up within 72 hours of receiving the package to avoid any damage. It may take 24 to 48 hours for the mattress to expand to its original size and shape.
To put it all together, the Zinus Memory Foam 5 Inch Twin mattresses come in a set of two for less than 120$, which is quite an amazing price. If you’re looking for an average mattress for your daybed or a comfortable solution for your kids’ bunk beds, this Zinus mattress may just be the right option for you. The memory foam in combination with comfort foam and the high density base provides the right comfort needed for a good night’s sleep. Again, due to the thickness of only 5 inches, this mattress would not be very comfortable for an adult. Overall, it provides memory foam comfort and support with average edge support, motion transfer and heat regulation. This is a longer lasting and durable solution for your daybed or bunk bed that definitely wont break your budget. The customers have found these twin mattresses just right for their little ones who simply love sleeping on Zinus’ comfortable memory foam. If you decide to purchase this set of twin mattresses, don’t forget to let them expand after taking them out of the package. You can expect little off gassing upon opening the package but the odor fades away quickly!
