OkiOki is a direct-to-consumer mattress company that sells affordably priced bedding, furniture, and mattresses. This review will focus on the OkiSoft, one of the brand's two memory foam mattresses.
The OkiSoft has a medium (5) firmness that's designed with side sleepers in mind. The memory foam provides close-conforming pressure relief, with gel infusions to help dissipate heat. A high-density polyfoam base helps provide spinal support.
OkiOki also makes three other mattresses: the hybrid OkiEasy and OkiFlex, and the all-foam OkiFirm. The OkiOki website offers a short sleep quiz to guide customers toward the best choice for their sleeping style. We'll take a quick look at how these compare before moving to an in-depth review of the OkiSoft mattress.

OkiSoft Mattress Review: Our Verdict
The OkiSoft mattress is a well-built memory foam mattress sold at a below-average price-point. It has a medium feel that cushions pressure points, which is ideal for side sleepers and those who weigh less than 230 pounds. The memory foam also helps absorb movement, which is helpful for couples who are concerned about waking each other up throughout the night.
As an all-foam mattress with a standard height profile, the OkiSoft mattress may not be sufficiently supportive for individuals over 230 pounds. Likewise, if you're interested in an all-foam mattress but you don't like the feeling of sinking into the bed, the OkiFirm might be a better option.
OkiOki also makes two hybrid mattresses that offer more responsive surfaces and stronger temperature neutrality. All the OkiOki mattresses are priced the same, so the best choice for you will depend on your personal preference and individual needs.

How Much Is the OkiSoft Mattress?
The OkiSoft mattress is competitively priced. As with all the OkiOki mattresses, the price-point is lower than competing memory foam models of comparable construction. The mattress uses decent-quality foams that should offer average durability, making it a budget-friendly choice.
OkiOki also offers occasional promotion codes that can further lower the price. For shoppers who are still on the fence, the mattress comes with a full year-long sleep trial. This is considerably longer than what most companies offer, giving you plenty of time to decide whether your investment was worth the money.
Customers are offered the option to add a foundation or bed frame to their order at checkout.

How Does the OkiSoft Feel?
The OkiSoft mattress has a medium firmness level. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the firmest, this mattress would be equivalent to a 5. Most mattresses fall in the 5 to 7 range, placing this on the plusher end but still within the sweet spot that appeals to the majority of sleepers.
Memory foam in the top layer of the OkiSoft hugs the body and relieves pressure points, giving the feeling of sleeping "in" rather than "on" the mattress. Those who weigh less than 130 pounds may find they float more on top of the mattress, causing it to feel a little firmer.
Beneath the memory foam is a layer of high-density polyfoam followed by a second, firmer layer of high-density polyfoam. While not a true transition layer, the top polyfoam layer helps to prevent the the sleeper from sinking into the firmer base below.
The support core should provide ample support for most sleepers, helping to promote healthy spinal alignment. The exception is sleepers over 230 pounds, who typically prefer mattresses with thicker support systems.
What Is the OkiSoft Made Of?
The OkiSoft mattress has a straightforward all-foam construction consisting of a comfort layer over two support layers. The mattress stands at 10 inches tall, which is average for a mattress of this type.
The OkiSoft cover is made of “Ice Yarn”, a fabric blend that is hypoallergenic and cool to the touch. It has a zipper and can be removed and machine-washed, which is ideal for those who want to keep their mattress clean.
The comfort layer consists of 3 inches of gel memory foam. This memory foam has a relatively low density, which allows for easier movement while still cushioning pressure points. The gel infusions are intended to reduce the heat retention that's typical of traditional memory foam.
The support core measures 7 inches in total, with a slightly softer foam on top and firmer foam on the bottom. These two layers of high-density polyfoam form a supportive base that helps cradle the body and maintain spinal alignment.
Does it Isolate Motion?
The OkiSoft performs well at motion isolation, meaning it's able to prevent most movements from traveling across the surface of the bed. Memory foam is generally considered one of the best materials for motion isolation due to its high point elasticity, which allows it to conform locally to a sleeper's movements. The high-density polyfoam base also helps absorb movement.
Sleepers on the OkiSoft should experience minimal disruptions when their sleeping partner switches positions or gets in and out of bed. This makes the OkiSoft an attractive choice for sensitive sleepers who share the bed.
Does it Sleep Cool?
Some sleepers may find that the OkiSoft sleeps warmer than other mattresses. This is a common issue with all-foam beds, whose solid designs tend to trap heat. The OkiSoft also contours quite closely, leading some sleepers to experience heat buildup around the body.
The OkiSoft incorporates a cooling cover and gel infusions to mitigate heat retention. The memory foam is also lower-density than traditional memory foam beds. Despite these benefits, hot sleepers may be more comfortable on a hybrid mattress with better airflow.
Will It Sag Along the Edges?
As it has no added reinforcement around the edges, sleepers may experience some compression when sitting on or lying near the edge of the OkiSoft mattress. This effect will be more noticeable for people who weigh more than 230 pounds, as they exert more pressure on the mattress.
Edge support is important when getting in and out of bed, which is something to consider for those with limited mobility. Feelings of instability along the perimeter may also cause sleepers to drift toward the middle of the bed. If you share the bed with a partner, you may wish to buy a bigger mattress size to compensate for this effect.
Is It Good for Sex?
Given its limited bounce, the OkiSoft mattress does not lend itself particularly well to sex. The memory foam conforms quite closely and has a slow response time that may impede movement. Heat retention and below-average edge support may also be a problem for some couples.
That said, sex is a matter of personal preference, and certain couples may appreciate the traction provided by the memory foam. Another advantage is that the mattress is virtually silent when bearing weight.
What About Off-gassing?
Sleepers will likely notice a faint off-gassing smell when they first receive the mattress. Off-gassing is a normal process that occurs as a byproduct of the foam manufacturing process. The odors should dissipate within a few days of the mattress being unboxed.
The OkiSoft holds certification from CertiPUR-US and OEKO-TEX, guaranteeing that any off-gassing you may experience is not considered harmful.
What Type of Sleeper Is the OkiSoft Mattress Best for?
The OkiSoft mattress is best suited to side sleepers, who benefit most from its medium feel and contouring pressure relief. We'll take a closer look at how the mattress stacks up for side sleepers, back sleepers, and combination sleepers.
- Side Sleepers: Side sleepers often experience pressure buildup where the hips and shoulders come into contact with the mattress. With contouring memory foam in the comfort layer, most side sleepers should find that the OkiSoft mattress does a good job of alleviating these pressure points. However, individuals who weigh more than 230 pounds may develop pressure points where they sink down onto the firmer polyfoam.
- Combination Sleepers: Combination sleepers may find that the OkiSoft restricts movement, making it difficult to switch sleeping positions. The relatively plush memory foam may also be uncomfortable when sleeping on the stomach. Pocketed coils in the hybrid OkiFlex and OkiEasy models provide a more responsive surface that enable movement for combination sleepers.
- Back Sleepers: As back sleeping naturally aligns the spine, most back sleepers prefer a neutral firmness level. The OkiSoft mattress is a tad softer, which is ideal for back sleepers under 230 pounds. For these sleepers, the mattress provides an adequate balance of support and pressure relief. By contrast, those who weigh more than 230 pounds may find the mattress is too soft to offer sufficient lumbar support. The OkiFlex and OkiFirm both have a firmer surface that's better suited to these sleepers.
How Does Body Weight Impact the OkiSoft Mattress' Performance?
Body weight plays an important role in determining how much support and pressure relief a mattress provides. Our testers rated the firmness of the OkiSoft as medium (5), but the mattress may perform differently depending on your individual body type.
Sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds don't exert as much pressure on the mattress, so they may rate the OkiSoft as subjectively firmer. For these sleepers, the mattress strikes a nice balance between support and pressure relief. It's firm enough for stomach and back sleeping, but it performs best for side sleeping, where it conforms to cushion pressure points and helps encourage proper spinal alignment.
Individuals who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds sink a little further into the mattress. This isn't a problem for side sleepers, who tend to need additional pressure relief. The foam construction also benefits back sleepers, as the mattress conforms to the lumbar region to help keep the spine aligned. However, the mattress may be too soft to keep the spine on an even plane for some stomach sleepers.
People who weigh more than 230 pounds require a firmer surface and a robust support system to help maintain spinal alignment. The OkiSoft may be too plush, allowing excessive sinkage at the hips where more weight tends to be concentrated. For these sleepers, the OkiFirm and OkiFlex hybrid mattresses are better-equipped to support the spine.
Is it Good for Couples?
The OkiSoft has several features that will benefit couples. The mattress rates above-average for motion isolation, promising minimal nighttime disruptions for most couples. People who sleep with a partner will also appreciate how quiet the mattress is.
In terms of compatibility with different sleeping positions and body types, the OkiSoft can accommodate most sleepers under 230 pounds. This should appeal to a fairly wide range of sleepers. However, if you or your partner weighs more than 230 pounds and prefer sleeping on your back or stomach, a firmer OkiOki model may be more appropriate.
Other features that are important for couples include ease of movement, edge support, and temperature neutrality. The OkiSoft does not necessarily stand out in these categories, making it less suitable for hot sleepers, combination sleepers, and couples who share a smaller bed.
What Do Customers Say About the OkiSoft Mattress?
OkiSoft mattress reviews from real customers help give a fuller picture of how the OkiSoft performs at home. Bear in mind that customer reviews reflect subjective experiences and may not be an accurate predictor of how the mattress will feel for you.
In a nutshell, OkiSoft customers describe the mattress as supportive, but cushiony, relieving pressure points without causing a sinking effect. Side sleepers rate the mattress as extremely comfortable, and many people say the mattress helps relieve neck, back, shoulder, and hip pain.
Customers agree that the OkiSoft mattress offers good value for money and a generous trial period. Those who decided not to keep the mattress praise the easy return process.
According to most reviewers, the mattress sleeps hot, but not as hot as some other memory foam mattresses. Some reviewers also mention the lack of edge support and note that the cover is slick, which can lead to the sheets slipping. There are limited off-gassing complaints.
