6. Eva mattress

Eva is a hybrid mattress combining springs, latex, gel memory foam, and high-density foams. The Eva mattress is thicker than most brands, and the extra cushion and pressure relief is fantastic.

It’s relatively affordable when compared to other hybrid mattresses, making the Eva ideal for people who want the premium contour of foam, the bounce of coil designs, but don’t want to break the bank. They are also B-corp certified, so the company operates to a high eco-friendly standard. 

Summing it up, Eva is a great 'all-rounder' offering superb value for money and support for your back. It's one of the thickest mattresses in Australia measuring at 31 cm. However it's not just the thickness of the mattress that provides support, it's the great materials used.

7. Ergoflex mattress

The Ergoflex 5G is an original mattress company, and is one of the only brands that’s been in business longer than the warranty. Also, It uses high-density memory foam that will last over many years.  

It’s a recognised orthopedic mattress and sells in the UK also with stella reviews. What makes this mattress supportive is the premium quality foams that have the highest graded density-5th Gen True HD ACPT™. Which means they offer more pressure relief and have better longevity.

The mattress comprises three layers of foam. 

  • The top surface is 9cm of viscoelastic memory foam, which provides body-conforming support and no partner disturbance. 
  • A 5cm Cool-SleepTM airflow system at the mattress’s core allows for air circulation and temperature regulation. 
  • The foundation is a 9cm high resilience impact-resistant layer that ensures perfectly weighted support upper layers and long-lasting performance.

While this mattress ticks many boxes with its top-notch hospital-grade materials, back pain remains a tricky issue. There’s no one solution for everybody. This might not be the right fit because the sinking feeling of memory foam might displease you, and you would rather have more support with a spring base. 

If this is the case, check out our second choice, a hybrid of memory foam and pocket springs. If not, you get a 30-night sleep trial with the Ergoflex to try it out.

8. Macoda Mattress

Macoda mattress

Honestly, we love the Macoda mattress. The brand is not as popular (yet) as the other ‘bed in a box’ manufacturers, but its excellent reviews and features make it a great mattress to consider.

This mattress targets back pain with targeted pressure relief to conforming to your body and help align the spine. Then, five-zone pocket springs target different parts of your body, meaning more support for where you need it. Furthermore, the edge support will keep you in the right position and stop the edges from dipping—making it perfect for side sleepers and back sleepers.

Next, let's examine the comfort layer. This mattress is unique because you can switch the top comfort layers by unzipping and flipping the two inserts. This means you can make it soft, medium and firm in a couple of minutes.

A layer of latex and a layer of memory foam with thousands of cooling gel beads work together to ensure you don't overheat. 

A plush bamboo cover surrounds everything, wicking moisture away to keep you and your mattress feeling fresh. Also, it is highly breathable, super soft, and environmentally friendly

The polyurethane foams are CertiPUR-US certified, and the bamboo quilting is Oeko-Tex certified. Which means they are free from any harmful chemicals. 

You get a 100-night trial to see if the mattress is right for you. But with the quality materials and adjustable firmness, we think it’s an excellent solution for sleepers with back pain.

10. Sleeping Duck mattress

One of the most expensive mattresses on the market because of the high-quality materials used. Sleeping Duck has six layers and two different comfort levels available medium and firm. You can also adjust the foam layers for the personalised perfect night's sleep.

Sleeping Duck was recently awarded the top mattress in independent testing by CHOICE. If money isn't an option, then Sleeping Duck is one of the best mattresses on the market. We think the price is worth the great nights sleep you'll have on this bed.
