If you have done hours of researching for the right mattress for yourself, but still haven’t narrowed down to one mattress, then this is the perfect solution to your problem. People always tend to focus on one or two of their needs and end up overlooking many other important aspects of the mattress. There’s an old saying that you have to give up something in order to get something, but Helix has completely changed this thinking. Helix is a bed in a box mattress company that actually offers you a fully customized mattress for yourself. All you have to do is go to their site, and take a 2-3 minutes sleep quiz with questions like your weight, age, preferred sleeping position, pressure points, etc and Helix will customize your mattress based on your preferences on Feel, Support, Temperature regulation, and Point elasticity.

Every Helix mattress is made up of microcoils, proprietary foam, and polyfoam, but each of the mattress differs on the basis of your preferences.


The first layer is a 2 inches of Helix proprietary Dynamic foam. It is responsive to pressure and provides cooling to the mattress and comfort to the sleeper.

The second layer is a 2 inches comfort layer which is made up of Helix’s proprietary dynamic foam. This dynamic foam feels somewhat between a memory foam and latex.

The third layer is a 2 inches of pocketed springs, with hundreds of miniature coils that offer bounce, pressure relief and effective weight distribution.

The base layer is a 4 inches of High-Grade Polyfoam which provides support and durability to the mattress. It also acts as a foundation for the above layers and gives the mattress it’s shape.



Helix offer mattresses with firmness range of 2-10 (10 being the firmest). This means that with helix, everyone can get their preferred level of firmness. You just have to take their sleep quiz and Helix will customize your mattress’s firmness on the basis of your answers. If you are skeptical about this process, then you should check their customer reviews, which are mostly positive. So, you can rest assured that your personalized mattress will efficiently cater to all your needs and preferences.


Dual and Blended Comfort option

Helix is an ideal mattress for couples with different sleeping preferences. You can opt for Blended comfort option where Helix will blend your sleeping preferences and customize a mattress according to that. But, if your preferences are opposite from each other, then you can opt for Dual comfort option where Helix will customize both sides of the mattress according to your preferences, and attach them together for a personalized sleeping experience.


Motion Isolation

If you share your bed with your partner, then motion isolation is something you should never overlook. Eventually, it doesn’t matter how comfortable a mattress is, if you’re interrupted by every movement of your partner. You don’t have to worry about this with Helix, as it offers high level of motion isolation. You can be sure that you or your partner will not be interrupted by any twisting or tossing of each other through out the night.


Edge Support

Helix will customize your mattress for as much support as your body needs. Based on my height, weight, and sleeping position, Helix customized my mattress to have a higher level of support to ensure my spinal alignment but it will vary according to your height, weight, etc. If you opt for a mattress that’s too soft, it will offer less edge support as compared to a mattress which is a little more firm.
