Yogabed Mattress Review: Our Verdict
The Yogabed is a comfortable, all-foam mattress at an affordable price point. With the deep, contouring feel of a foam comfort layer, the Yogabed provides superior pressure relief for sleepers with aching joints. At a medium firm firmness rating, this mattress will suit the comfort needs of most sleepers. Additionally, the Yogabed’s quiet surface and strong motion isolation make this a good choice for light-sleeping couples.
While the Yogabed may not be the best choice for those who sleep particularly hot, its Thermocool cover and gel-infused comfort layer make this mattress cooler than other all-foam mattresses. However, sleepers who prefer a softer sleep surface may prefer the Unplug mattress by Yogasleep/Marpac which has a medium firmness rating.

How Much Is the Yogabed Mattress?
The Yogabed is available at a below average price point for an all-foam mattress. This makes the Yogabed an affordable option for price-conscious shoppers. However, the mattress is on par in terms of price when compared to similarly constructed non-luxury, all-foam mattresses.
The Yogabed comes with the option to add two Yogasleep pillows. Perks such as a solid return policy and mattress warranty also add to the value of the Yogabed.

How Does the Yogabed Mattress Feel?
The all-foam Yogabed mattress is rated a 6 or medium firm on the firmness scale. This represents a moderately firm sleep surface that will suit the preferences of most sleepers. But even for sleepers who tend to enjoy a softer mattress, the Yogabed’s comfort layers provide a plush feel.
Several layers of polyfoam with varying densities and cooling properties make up both the comfort system and support core of the Yogabed mattress. Typical of an all-foam mattress, the Yogabed offers an ample amount of contouring as the foam layers compress beneath the sleeper’s body. This creates a body-hugging feel that provides excellent pressure relief for aching joints and other sensitive areas.
What Is the Yogabed Mattress Made Of?
The Yogabed is an all-foam mattress that is manufactured in the United States. It's made of different layers of polyfoam to create a supportive yet comfortable sleep surface that helps relieve painful pressure points as you sleep. Let’s take a closer look at how the Yogabed is constructed.
- Cover Material: The Yogabed comes with a removable cover. The cover can be easily unzipped and machine washed. This is a unique feature as most mattresses come equipped with a non-removable covering material. The Yogabed’s cover is made with Thermocool, a fabric designed to help regulate body temperature.
- Comfort Layers: The comfort system of the Yogabed mattress consists of two layers. The first is a 1-inch polyform layer of proprietary Yoga Instant Response Foam. This high density foam is designed to offer medium firm comfort coupled with close contouring that hugs your body as you sleep. The second layer is made with 2 inches of gel-infused YogaGel polyfoam. This softer, medium density layer allows heavier areas of the body such as the hips to sink more deeply into the mattress while also helping to regulate sleep temperature.
- Support Core: The Yogabed’s support core is made with two high density layers of polyfoam. The top layer consists of 5 inches of firm foam, while the second layer consists of 2 inches of even firmer foam. These layers provide a sturdy base that adds reinforced support to the Yogabed.
Does the Yogabed Mattress Isolate Motion?
As an all-foam mattress, the Yogabed isolates motion well across its sleep surface. Motion isolation describes a mattress’s ability to limit the transfer of movement in one area of the mattress to other areas on the sleep surface. This is an especially important consideration for couples who share the same bed. If a couple’s mattress has poor motion isolation, partners can easily disturb one another if they move around during the night.
Foam mattresses tend to perform the best when it comes to absorbing motion and preventing its transfer across the sleep surface. The Yogabed mattress is not a standout performer in this category, so you still may notice if your partner moves around significantly. That being said, it does an above average job of isolating motion.
Does the Yogabed Sleep Cool?
Considering that all-foam mattresses are notorious for sleeping hot, the Yogabed sleeps relatively cool. This characteristic is referred to as temperature neutrality. It describes how well a mattress regulates a sleeper’s temperature throughout the night.
Sleep temperature can be affected by more than just your mattress. The clothes, sheets, and blankets you choose are all important considerations, along with your bedroom’s temperature and air circulation.
Your mattress also has a significant impact on how hot or how cool you feel while sleeping. Foam mattresses have received a bad rap for sleeping hot. That’s because foam mattresses are known for their contouring. While a deep body hugging feel is great for comfort, it can restrict airflow. Moreover, many types of foam tend to absorb and retain body heat, making you feel increasingly hot as the night progresses.
The Yogabed regulates temperature well for an all-foam mattress. While it does trap some body heat, the sleep surface has a cool feel due to the gel-infused layer in its comfort system.
Will It Sag Along the Edges?
Another pitfall of all-foam mattresses is their lack of reinforcement at the perimeter of the sleep surface. As a result of the Yogabed’s all-foam construction, the edges of the bed tend to sag over time, especially if you frequently apply weight by sitting on the side of your bed.
Poor edge support can make it more difficult to get in and out of bed and tends to reduce the usable amount of surface area on a mattress. Like other all-foam mattresses, the Yogabed offers only marginal edge support and its edges are prone to sagging over time.
Is It Good for Sex?
The Yogabed is not particularly responsive or bouncy and is therefore not the best option when it comes to sex. Typically, mattresses with more bounce allow for easier movement and tend to be better for sexual activity.
Hybrids that contain pocketed coil springs in their support core usually score the best in this category. The coils impart a resilient bounce that makes changing positions and moving more effortless.
While the Yogabed’s all-foam construction lacks the bounce of a hybrid, the mattress performed adequately in this category when compared to other foam mattresses. Its soft, conforming surface is comfortable and quiet. Although users will find themselves sinking into the bed somewhat, this creates ample traction.
What About Off-gassing?
After first unpacking the Yogabed mattress, there is a moderate amount of off-gassing odor. New products usually emit a chemical smell after being unpackaged for the first time. In the case of mattresses, this is due to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are a byproduct of some mattress manufacturing processes.
While VOCs are not considered to be harmful, they produce a noticeable odor. The odor can be stronger or weaker depending on the specific mattress and how it was manufactured. The Yogabed produces a noticeable smell directly after unpackaging. However, the smell should largely dissipate within two days.
What Type of Sleeper Is the Yogabed Mattress Best for?
The Yogabed offers a highly-contouring, comfortable sleep surface for the majority of sleepers. However, mattress comfort can vary greatly depending on a sleeper’s personal preferences.
One aspect that has a significant impact on mattress comfort is sleep position. Whether you sleep on your side, back, stomach, or a combination, your preferred position will affect how comfortably you sleep on a given mattress.
- Side Sleepers: Sleepers who prefer to sleep on their sides tend to place a greater amount of pressure on their hips and shoulders. To relieve pressure but support these large joints, most side sleepers prefer a medium to medium firm mattress that’s responsive with moderate to above-average contouring. While the Yogabed lacks responsiveness, its comfort system provides deep contouring that supports and relieves pressure for side sleepers.
- Combination Sleepers: Combination sleepers must deal with the tricky situation of finding a mattress that performs well for all types of sleeping positions. That’s because combination sleepers often change between back, stomach, and side sleeping positions throughout the night. The medium firm sleep surface of the Yogabed provides a level of firmness that is broadly applicable to a variety of sleep positions.
- Back Sleepers: For back sleepers, medium firm mattresses with moderate contouring help prevent the midsection from sinking too deeply and overexaggerating the natural curve of the spine or creating painful pressure points. Overall, the Yogabed’s body-hugging comfort meets the needs of most back sleepers.
How Does Body Weight Impact the Yogabed Mattress's Performance?
The Yogabed offers a comfortable sleep for those under 230 pounds, but sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds will likely need a more supportive and firm sleep surface. Body weight is another important factor to consider when deciding whether a mattress will be comfortable for you. That’s because sleepers of different sizes tend to have different sleep preferences.
Sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds do not place very much pressure on their sleep surface. For this reason, these sleepers tend to prefer softer, highly contouring mattresses. The Yogabed’s medium firm comfort works well for most sleepers under 130 pounds, although some may find the mattress to be too firm. In this case, the Yogabed Unplug mattress may be a better choice, as it has a softer medium comfort rating.
Sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds place a moderate amount of pressure on their mattresses and tend to prefer medium firm sleep surfaces like the Yogabed. It’s no surprise that sleepers in this category found the Yogabed to be most comfortable.
Sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds place the most pressure on their sleep surfaces. As a result, they require a mattress that is more firm and supportive. Due to the Yogabed’s ample contouring and moderate firmness, sleepers in this category found the mattress to be too soft and below average in terms of comfort.
Is the Yogabed Mattress Good for Couples?
The Yogabed performs reasonably well for couples. However, this mattress has some important advantages and disadvantages for couples planning to share the same sleep surface.
First, the Yogabed performs well when it comes to motion isolation. A mattress that doesn’t isolate motion means that one partner can easily wake the other while tossing and turning or getting up to use the bathroom. Unless one partner is creating a significant amount of movement, the Yogabed transfers little motion across its surface.
In terms of temperature regulation, the Yogabed does an adequate job of keeping sleepers cool. However, if you or your partner tend to sleep hot, the Yogabed may not be the right choice.
Lastly, the Yogabed’s less than ideal edge support causes sagging at the mattresses perimeter, reducing the usable surface area of the mattress. Couples considering this mattress may want to size up. For example, instead of a Yogabed queen, go for a king size.
