Tuft and Needle is an online retailer, selling all foam mattresses directly to the consumers under the name T&F. Unlike other mattress companies that are selling a number of layers in their mattresses, Tuft and Needle mattresses consists of only two layers. These layers are made of Tuft and Needle proprietary adaptive polyurethane foam. Tuft and Needle doesn’t believe in selling layers in their mattresses as they claim that more and more layers are just useless and gimmicks of charging extra from consumers. It even says on the website that “More Layers Aren’t Always Better.” They have designed their mattress with an aim of one mattress fits all. But is it really a mattress that will fit all?



Tuft and Needle mattress consists of two foam layers that stacks up to a 10″ mattress.

The cover is made up of stretchy polyester called Tactel. Tactel doesn’t retain body’s heat and increases air flow through the mattress. This helps the mattress to stay cooler through out the night which makes it ideal for people who sleep hot.

The first layer is made up of 3 inches of Tuft and Needle proprietary poly foam with a density of 2.9 lb. This comfort layer performs like a memory foam and latex, both in one layer. This layer will contour to your body’s curves and offer pressure relief just like a traditional memory foam. Also, like traditional latex, this layer is responsive to pressure, providing ideal amount of support and bounce to the sleeper.

The second layer is also a type of adaptive foam, which is 7 inches thick with a density of 1.8 lbs. This is the base layer of the mattress that acts as a foundation for the comfort layer and also provides shape to the mattress.



Since this mattress is designed to be universally fit for everyone, it falls in the medium firm category. It sits somewhere around 6-7 on the firmness scale (10 being the firmest). It should be ideal for stomach sleepers and back sleepers as it offers maximum support and pressure relief. Though it is the most suitable to back sleepers, it is a good option for side sleepers as well. Being an all foam mattress, it hugs the contours of of your body making you feel comfortable without sinking in too deep into the mattress. It is ideal for couples with different sleeping preferences and If you don’t have extreme preferences, then this mattress will suit you fine. It is not for those people who like a the traditional memory foam or cushiony feeling from their mattress.


Motion Isolation

If you’re going to share your bed with your partner, then this is not something you should overlook. You really don’t want to get up to every twist and turn of your partner, right?

Tuft and Needle proprietary foam is great at containing motion. When you sleep on this mattress, you or your partner will not be bothered by each others twists and turns and will be able to sleep sound through out the night (or even day).


Edge Support

If you share your bed with your partner then you understand how useful it is to use full surface of the mattress. You obviously don’t want to roll out of the bed while changing positions. Tuft and Needle mattress performs great when it comes to providing support. You will feel even support when you lay in the center of the bed or when you lay right at the edge. You are likely to experience a little bit of compression, but that’s pretty normal. You and your partner can easily change positions while sleeping and lay down towards the edges without having the fear of rolling out.

Tuft and Needle claims that if a layer doesn’t change or add into the feel of the mattress, then you will not find it in their mattress and they have lived up to this claim as their mattress consists of just two basic foam layers. There are no gimmicks or worthless layers in their mattresses and they have mostly received positive reviews by the users.
