Juno Mattress Review
The Juno Mattress is a budget-friendly offering from GoodMorning.com, a major Canadian online mattress retailer.
This 8-inch all-foam mattress has a simple design with just two layers: a gel-infused polyfoam comfort layer over a high-density polyfoam support core. Its firmness level is medium firm, or a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale.
While the Juno is the brand’s most affordable model, GoodMorning.com produces multiple other mattresses to suit a range of sleeping styles. The current lineup includes the Logan & Cove pillow top, the Apollo and Brunswick hybrids, the Recore latex, and the Novosbed and Douglas all-foam mattresses. With the exception of the Novosbed, these GoodMorning.com mattresses are exclusively available to Canadian residents and are not available in the U.S. They’re part of a growing selection of popular bed-in-a-box mattresses in Canada.
We’ll briefly highlight the major differences between a few of the GoodMorning.com mattresses before turning to a closer examination of the Juno Mattress. We’ll include details about the materials, construction, and performance ratings for different types of sleepers to help you decide if this mattress is right for you.

Juno Mattress Review: Our Verdict
The Juno is built with high-quality foams and comes at a reasonable price-point. This simplified all-foam mattress cuts straight to the chase with a high-performing gel foam layer and a solid support core. While the Juno is only sold in Canada, GoodMorning.com does make one model for the U.S. market: the all-foam Novosbed.
Back sleepers and side sleepers weighing less than 105 kilograms should find that the Juno provides ample support and pressure relief. Further benefits include above-average motion isolation and relatively good temperature neutrality for an all-foam bed. These features are great for couples, although the weak edge support and limited bounce may be a problem when sharing the bed.
Shoppers looking for a bit more support and responsiveness might be interested in the Apollo or Brunswick hybrid mattresses, also by GoodMorning.com. Alternatively, the Logan & Cove allows customers to select their preferred firmness level.

- You sleep primarily on your back or side and you weigh less than 105 kilograms

Keep Shopping if…

How Does the Juno Mattress Feel?
The Juno Mattress is medium firm, equivalent to a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale. This is considered a happy medium that’s well suited to several sleeping styles. Due to its all-foam construction, the Juno has strong pressure relief but limited responsiveness.
Most sleepers will sink in a little when they first lie down, with the comfort layer providing a slight hug to help relieve pressure points. The high-density polyfoam support core provides a stable base for the mattress, helping to distribute body weight and promote proper spinal alignment. This combination of cushioning and support provides a balance that’s particularly suitable for back and side sleepers.
Since the Juno doesn’t have a transition layer and the comfort section is relatively thin, people who weigh more than 105 kilograms may find that the pressure relief comes up short. Similarly, stomach sleepers who prefer a firmer surface may find that this isn’t the bed for them.
What Is the Juno Mattress Made Of?
The Juno Mattress has just two layers: gel-infused polyfoam over a high-density base foam. The mattress stands at 8 inches tall, which is thinner than most mattresses and may be ideal for people who live in cramped spaces or who often move their mattress.
The Juno has a smooth polyester and viscose cover, constructed with a breathable knit weave and decorated with a classic Canadian design. The company recommends spot-cleaning the cover as needed.
The Juno has a single comfort layer, consisting of 2 inches of gel-infused polyfoam. This lightweight foam contours to reduce pressure points, and the gel infusions help draw heat away from the sleeper.
A 6-inch layer of high-density polyfoam adds stability and support to the mattress and helps extend its lifespan. Compared with an innerspring base, high-density polyfoam allows less motion transfer and is virtually silent when bearing weight.
What Type of Sleeper Is the Juno Mattress Best For?
Different sleeping positions change the way your body comes into contact with the mattress, altering the feel and providing more or less support and cushioning. The Juno Mattress is most popular with side and back sleepers.
Side sleepers are prone to pressure buildup where their shoulders and hips come into contact with the mattress. For side sleepers who weigh less than 105 kilograms, the Juno contours to the curves of the body to provide cushioning and help alleviate pain. Those who weigh more than 105 kilograms may prefer the Juno’s sister mattress, the Douglas, which has a thicker comfort section.
Combination sleepers require a mattress that facilitates movement, as well as a sleep surface that adjusts to different sleeping positions. The Juno benefits back and side sleepers, so if you spend most of the night in these positions, then you may find the mattress suitable. That said, the Juno ranks below average for ease of movement, so it may not be the best choice for people who are constantly switching positions. A hybrid model such as the Brunswick or the Apollo may be more suitable.
For back sleepers who weigh less than 105 kilograms, the Juno Mattress forms a cradle to support the lumbar area and help keep the spine aligned. Back sleepers weighing more than 105 kilograms may find that the Juno allows too much sagging under the hips, which can put a strain on the lower back. These individuals are likely to be more comfortable on the Brunswick hybrid mattress, which provides more robust lumbar support.
With its medium firm surface, the Juno provides a level sleep surface for stomach sleepers who weigh less than 60 kilograms. For those who weigh more than 60 kilograms, the mattress may not be firm enough. These sleepers need more support to keep from sinking too deeply into the mattress, especially around the hips where more body weight tends to be concentrated. The firm Novosbed or the Brunswick are better-equipped to accommodate the needs of these sleepers.
How Does Body Weight Impact Performance?
Overall, the Juno performs best for sleepers weighing less than 105 kilograms, particularly when sleeping on the side or back. These individuals exert less pressure on the mattress and are more likely to receive sufficient pressure relief and spinal support. The exception is stomach sleepers weighing more than 60 kilograms, who generally need a firmer surface.
The Juno Mattress has a fairly thin comfort layer, which may not offer enough cushioning for those who weigh more than 105 kilograms. Sleepers in this category also need a stronger support core to maintain spinal alignment. It’s rare for an all-foam mattress to provide the needed support, so we usually recommend that these individuals opt for a hybrid model such as the Brunswick.
Is the Juno Mattress Good for Couples?
If you and your partner both weigh less than 105 kilograms, then the Juno may be an attractive option. The mattress isolates motion well and makes little to no noise, making it a good choice for couples who don’t want to wake each other up at night. It also sleeps relatively cool for a foam mattress, so people who sleep with a partner will be more comfortable in warm climates.
A drawback for couples is that the Juno Mattress doesn’t have very reliable edge support. This can force both people toward the middle, which may lead to problems with crowding when sharing a smaller mattress. Additionally, the close-conforming surface of the mattress can make it difficult to move around and isn’t optimal for sex.
