A Mint Mattress Review

mint mattress review

A Mint mattress review should reveal a few things before you buy one. First, it is bouncy. You will be sleeping cool, but you will probably find yourself sinking into the mattress too much, throwing your spine out of alignment. Second, the mattress is too soft to be comfortable for sex. Finally, you should know that Mint mattresses are not for everyone. If you are a side or stomach sleeper, you should avoid purchasing one of these mattresses.

Mint mattress is bouncy

The Tuft & Needle Mint mattress is a hybrid of latex and memory foam. The knitted cover contains proprietary antimicrobial protection to inhibit the growth of microbes. It also features Adaptive Foam, which combines latex and memory foam characteristics to provide pressure relief. Graphite is also infused into the mattress’ top layer for cooling. Arielle Avila, a Strategist junior writer, tested the Tuft & Needle Mint mattress to see how it slept.

The edges of the Mint Mattress are sturdier than those of other all-foam models, but heavier individuals may still feel sinkage. While this sinkage isn’t a big deal at first, it will grow more noticeable as time goes on. The medium-firmness of the Mint mattress contributes to overall movement, especially in the middle. It also stays relatively cool for a foam bed.

It’s comfortable for back sleepers

The Tuft & Needle Mint mattress is a cool hybrid mattress that supports the back and promotes proper spinal alignment. Its thick comfort layers provide a traditional contouring feel and support back sleepers with minimal discomfort. It also absorbs motion to provide a comfortable night’s sleep. Back sleepers may find the Mint comfortable for their back, but tummy sleepers may find it uncomfortable.

This medium-firm foam mattress is best for people who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds. If you’re a heavier person, you won’t get proper lower back support from the Mint mattress. However, this foam bed is easy to adjust to different positions and is not too noisy. The Mint mattress is also ideal for people who experience shoulder, hip, or back pain. Those with back pain may prefer a firmer mattress.

It’s too soft for sex

While the Mint mattress isolates motion well, it is too soft for sex. While the Mint mattress is not too soft for sex, it lacks the bounce, support, and responsiveness necessary for intimate moments. A good sex mattress should be comfortable for both partners and reduce noise. If you and your partner are prone to being overheard, the Mint mattress is probably not the best choice.

A typical back or stomach sleeper may feel too much sinking into the Mint mattress’s layers. This will cause body alignment problems, and a heavy person might feel pressure in their hips. On the upside, the Mint is quick to adapt to changes in position, and it’s surprisingly cool for a foam bed. If you’re concerned that the Mint mattress won’t be supportive enough for sex, it’s worth considering a few other mattresses before making a final decision.
