Outline: Zinus Mattress Review

We are very thorough in our reviews, so in order to make this post easier for you to digest, below is a jump-to list. You can click the links to go to a particular section within the review.

Buying A Zinus Mattress

Zinus very likely could be the #1 best selling mattress on Amazon. It’s really cheap and that’s the primary reason that people buy it.

Like most other online mattresses,Zinus comes with free shipping, whether you purchase through Zinus.com or Amazon. It also ships compressed inside a box and will usually arrive within three to five business days of when you place your order, at least if you’re in the contiguous United States.

When the package arrives, all you have to do is drag that sucker inside and tear off all of the plastic wrapping.The unboxing process takes less than 15 minutesstart to finish. You will want to give the bed 48-72 hours to fully inflate. Because it uses a lot of memory foam, it needs some extra time to return to its intended form. This is common with a lot of memory foam mattresses.

The Zinus Green Tea mattressis backed by a 10-year warranty. As an FYI, most beds come with at least a 10-year warranty.

Price Of The Zinus Green Team Mattress

As mentioned previously,this bed is cheap. In fact, depending on the height that you choose (6″, 8″, 10″, or 12″) the Green Tea mattress might bethecheapest bed available. Here’s a pricing breakdown for the 12″ model.

SizePrice (MSRP)
Twin$207
Full$279
Queen$339
King / Cal King$420

Keep in mind thatprices tend to fluctuate seller to seller on Amazon. For example, typically, when Amazon is the actual vendor for the mattress, we see it more heavily discounted than when Zinus is selling the mattress themselves. Regardless, though, you can usually find the 10″ model for around $200 on Amazon.

Zinus Memory Foam Mattress Construction & Layers

The Green Tea mattress ismade entirely of foam, but the exact construction depends on which height you choose. Below is a construction breakdown for the 12″ Green Tea mattress.

Inside the 12″ Zinus Green Tea mattress

The 6″ bed has only two layers. It has egg crate support foam on the bottom and memory foam on top. The 8″ and 10″ models both have three layers. They have support foam on the bottom, transition foam in the center, and memory foam on top. The 12″ model just adds a second layer of egg crate support foam on the bottom.

Construction side view of the 12″ Green Tea mattress

All of the foams in this mattress are CertiPUR-US certified. This assures you that the mattress has been tested and certified by an independent laboratory to meet specific criterion for physical performance, indoor emissions, and environmental stewardship, and is made without ozone depleters, heavy metals, or formaldehyde. Also, the Green Tea mattress has been tested and passed the requirements of the Cigarette Smoldering Test and the Open Flame Test.

What We Think Of The Cover On Zinus Green Tea

The cover for this mattress is made of a knitted jacquard fabric. It’s white and soft, but to be honest, it’s not our favorite cover.It’s thin and bunches up easily. You can actually grab the cover and pull it up in the air a good six inches.

The cover is removable, but Zinus actually states that removing it can affect your warranty, and we agree that you should not remove it, because it’s just a pain. If it gets a stain that you must remove, justuse some warm water and mild detergent to spot clean. That should do the trick.

Plain Jane cover, but it’s fine

Also, to extend the longevity of this bed, you’ll want torotate it every three months as a preventative measureto protect against sagging or permanent indentations. Egg crate foam is probably the least durable foam that you’ll find inside a mattress. As such, we would implore you to rotate it regularly if the bed sees a lot of use. If it’s just your Airbnb mattress, rotate it as needed, not necessarily at set intervals. And this bed is not flippable.

Feel/Firmness Of This Memory Foam Bed

The Green Tea mattress is amedium-soft on the soft-to-firm scale, and has a pure memory foam feel. By this, we mean that you’re going to slowly melt into the material as it surrounds you, like a big hug, or like super comfortable quicksand.

We also noticed that the firmness of this bed changes per season because of the temperature.This bed seemed to be firmer in colder weatherand softer in warmer weather.

Given that the Green Tea mattress has a true memory foam feel,you get a good amount of that stuck-in-the-mud feeling. Switching positions does take extra effort and could leave you feeling restless if you tend to rotate between sleeping positions frequently during the night.

That said, we do think the Green Tea mattress is comfortable, it’s just thatyou have to really like memory foam to get this mattress.

Will Back And Stomach Sleepers Like Zinus?

Typically, back and stomach sleepers prefer firmer mattresses—that’s not the Zinus Green Tea mattress. We do not think this will be a good mattress for back sleep and stomach sleepers unless you’re on the lighter side (i.e. under 140 lb).

Not designed for back or stomach sleepers

If you sleep predominately on your back, make sure to check out our list of the Best Mattresses for Back Sleepers. Same thing for stomach sleepers—see our list of the Best Mattresses for Stomach Sleepers.

Side Sleepers—What Will They Think Of Zinus?

Why yes, it is. The Green Tea mattress isbest for side sleepers. It’s soft enough to offer great pressure relief for the hips and shoulders when you’re on your side.

Ideally suited for side sleepers

As for combo sleepers, because you get that stuck-in-the-mud feeling,you’ll face a little resistance while moving around on the bed. If you’re of a lighter build, it’ll be easier for you, while heavier people will sink into the mattress more and get that quicksand feeling.

To answer your question, though, yes, Zinus will work for combo sleepers, but it wouldn’t land anywhere near our list of the Best Mattresses for Combo Sleepers.

Can Zinus Green Tea Handle Bigger People?

Short answer: No. We usually recommend heavier individuals go for a hybrid or spring mattress as opposed to an all-foam bed. While the 12″ bed is better than the 6″ bed for heavy people, overall, we can’t recommend the Zinus Green Tea mattress for individuals that weigh 250 lb or more. Foam beds just don’t typically have the long term support that coil beds do.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between cooling gel infused memory foam and traditional memory foam?

Ahhhh. you know that refreshing zing that hits you when you first get into a cool bed on a hot night? Cooling foam aims to extend that feeling throughout the night. The top layer of gel infused foam contours to your shape and resists body heat to keep you cooler all night long.

Do I need a hybrid or memory foam mattress?

Our hybrid mattresses feature iCoil technology that provides support, allowing you to breakdance on one side of the bed and not wake anyone on the other side. Memory foam offers plush comfort by conforming to your body and cradling you like a cloud. Hybrid technology is the best of both sleep worlds, perfect for those who want it all or want to transition from traditional spring to foam.

Zinus Mattress Review

Jake Comfort | Updated: March 3, 2020

Choosing a new mattress for your home is an exciting time. If you’ve been sleeping on the same mattress or the past few years, it might be time for an upgrade. Traditional coil mattresses are cheap, but they’re nowhere near as nice as foam or memory foam mattresses. In the past, foam mattresses have been too expensive for many consumers to afford.

E-commerce is changing the game – you can now find a range of cheap foam mattress options online without having to worry about breaking the bank. One of the newcomers to this industry is Zinus Mattress. This company knows what it takes to bring affordable foam mattresses to the public. They have a variety of different models that help people at almost any price point.

For the sake of this article, we’ll be taking a look at one of their most prominent mattresses. The most popular mattress that Zinus Mattress produces is the Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress. This mattress is simple but effective – it provides you the basics that you’re looking for in a foam mattress. It also happens to be the most affordable mattress on the market.

In this review, we’ll be taking a look at the Zinus Mattress Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress to provide you with all the information you need to decide if you want to buy it. We understand how hard it can be to choose a mattress – that’s why we have put serious effort into compiling all the information you need. If you’re in the market for a new mattress, make sure to check out all the information below!

Table of Contents

Construction

The way a mattress is constructed can tell you a lot about how it will feel. With the Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress, Zinus Mattress provides their customers with four different options. They have four different thickness levels – this helps customers better estimate the exact type of mattress they’re looking for. This is a great benefit that you might not find with many other mattress producers – many modern mattress companies have a one-size-fits-all approach to their mattress designs.

In this section, we’re going to take a look at the exact way the mattress is constructed. This Green Tea Memory Foam mattress boasts a pretty simple design, but it changes depending on the size you order.

Foam Layers

The Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress from Zinus Mattress uses a few different foams in its construction. There are no coils or hybrid options in this mattress design. Memory foam and support foam make up the entire mattress. Memory foam provides the comfort, while the support foam provides the base you need to keep the mattress firm. Below we’ll take a look at the exact layer design of each size of mattress.

6” Mattress

Top Layer – 1” Memory Foam

Base Layer – 5” Dense Support Foam

8” Mattress

Top Layer – 2” Memory Foam

Middle Layer – 2” Pressure Relief Density Foam

Base Layer – 4” Dense Support Foam

10” Mattress

Top Layer – 2.5” Memory Foam

Middle Layer – 2” Pressure Relief Density Foam

Base Layer – 5.5” Dense Support Foam

12” Mattress

Top Layer – 3” Memory Foam

Middle Layer – 2” Pressure Relief Density Foam

Second Middle Layer – 3.5” High Density Foam

Base Layer – 3.5” Dense Support Foam

As you can see, there is quite a bit of variation in each mattress depending on the thickness level that you choose. Regardless, all of the option are a relatively basic design. Because of the price point, you won’t find as much complexity in these designs as you would with more high-end mattress products.

Cover

The outside cover of a mattress has the potential to compliment a mattress, or destroy it. If a mattress cover is too thick, it will ruin the top layer texture of the mattress and retain too much heat. On the other hand, it it’s too thin, it will end up not providing enough protection or support for the mattress.

The Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress from Zinus Mattress is made from a thin Kitted Jacquard. It does a great job of adding support without adding to much additional heat retention issues.

Firmness, Feel, and Support

If you’re trying to buy a memory foam mattress, you’re probably very concerned with the way that the mattress feels. It can be hard to find a mattress that suits you perfectly, but a comfortable mattress isn’t too hard to attain if you know what you’re looking for. The memory foam on the Zinus Mattress provides the sensation that you’re sleeping on a cloud. You’ll feel contour and hug around your body as you lay down on the mattress.

The exact support and comfort that you’ll experience will depend on the mattress that you purchase. The thinnest mattress variation provides the least amount of comfort – there is only 1” of memory foam between you and the support layer. While the thicker mattresses have a lot of added foam for additional comfort. This is by no means as good of a mattress as Tempurpedic or another high-end brand.

In terms of support, it will depend on the mattress you purchase. The thicker the mattress, the more support you will feel. None achieve a level of above 7.5/10, so this isn’t a great mattress for those who weigh over 230 lbs.

The primary downside to the Green Team Memory Foam Mattress from Zinus Mattress is heat retention. Foam mattresses can often retain a lot of heat, which is bad for people who need a mattress with breathability. Because there are no coils or gaps, the foam in the mattress does not breathe as well as other options. It’s important to keep this in mind if heat retention is an issue for you as a sleeper.

Changes Over the Years

By all accounts, Zinus is a relatively new entrant to the mattress game – they haven’t had much time to develop on their current models. The mattress we are reviewing has not undergone any massive changes over the past few months, but Zinus Mattress does have other mattress models with improvements and alterations – though these tend to cost more.

If you’re looking for something a bit different, or you want to see the way they have evolved via other mattress models, make sure to check out some of the other mattress options on their site.

Sinkage

For the sake of sinkage tests, we’ll take a look at the 10” model of the mattress. The amount of sinkage a mattress has determines how far you will fall into the mattress when you lie on it.

If you’re lying on your back, you will find around 2.5” of sinkage. If you’re lying on your side, you will find about 3.5” of sinkage. This is assuming you weigh around 150 lbs. This level of sinkage is quite high, especially if you’re someone who is overweight.

Pricing

One of the best parts about the Zinus Mattress is how cheap it is. You won’t have to worry about breaking the bank if you want to purchase their luxury mattresses. The price of the mattress will depend on the thickness that your purchase. The thinner the mattress is, the cheaper it will be.

Zinus Mattress is not exactly a luxury mattress – you won’t receive the same features and benefits you might find with high-end mattresses. This company is seen as a cheap entrance point to the foam mattress industry – fortunately, it is very cheap. Because Zinus has four different mattress choices for the Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress, we’ve focused on their 10” for the sake of these price points. As mentioned previously, prices will vary depending on the thickness variation that you choose. Below is a table of the different mattress sizes and their price points:

Twin$160
Full$211
Queen$244
King$317

Other Information

It’s easy to overlook the additional benefits or features included with a mattress that you purchase. If you’re someone who is only concerned with the look and feel of a mattress, you might find that you run into problems long after your purchase. For example, you never want to purchase a mattress that doesn’t come with a warranty. A mattress is a long-term investment and should be treated as such – you need to put yourself in a position where you’re exposed to little risk.

Many modern mattress companies have to differentiate themselves from competitors by offering added benefits. In this section of our review, we’re going to take a look at all the additional benefits you’ll receive alongside your Zinus Mattress. It’s important to take these into consideration if you’re thinking of purchasing one of their mattresses – without understanding these features and benefits, you won’t be able to get the most out of your mattress.

Shipping

Shipping a mattress can be extremely expensive, so you want to make sure you can reduce this cost as much as possible if you’re going to order a mattress online. Finding a cheap and comfortable mattress can be great, but if you have to pay hundreds of dollars to ship it you might find other mattresses are cheaper.

But you don’t have to worry about this if you purchase a mattress from Zinus Mattress. They provide completely free shipping with the purchase of any mattress. They use FedEx to deliver all of their packages – you can be certain your shipment will be handled with the professionalism of a large, multi-national shipping company.

Warranty

This is the most crucial component of any mattress purchase – you need to be certain that the company you’re working with understands how significant your investment is. You don’t want to run into any problems that can’t be fixed.

With Zinus Mattress, you’ll be entitled to a full, 10-year warranty that ensures you can receive a replacement mattress should you run into any problems. This is a huge benefit if you’re looking to make sure you don’t need to pay for a mattress any time in the next decade. This warranty length is around the industry standard, though some do offer longer warranties to their customers.

100-Night Trial

Ordering a mattress online can seem counter-intuitive – how can you know you want a mattress until you sleep on it? Fortunately, with Zinus Mattress you receive a 100-night trial to help you fully experience the mattress. You have to pay for the mattress upfront, but you don’t like it you can return it for full refund within this timeframe.

100 nights is a fairly decent trial period when compared to the industry standard. Many top mattress producers only offer a 30-day trial period. With Zinus, you have over three months to decide if you want the mattress or not.

Support Site

One unique feature that Zinus offers its customers is a fully functioning support site. If you head to their website, you can find their support site and use it to view your orders, register your product, and more. They even have an FAQ section that you can use to fix small problems or find common solutions. This is a great feature that you don’t see with a lot of other mattress producers.

Should I Buy the Zinus Mattress?

If you’re wondering whether or not you should purchase the new Zinus Mattress, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons. If you’re looking for something cheap, this is truly one of the most affordable mattresses on the market. The fact that it comes with a variety of different thickness levels is also an added benefit.

The major downside with this mattress is the heat retention caused by the lack of coils or hybrid material. This being said, for the price point, it’s hard to find much better. With a long warranty and trial period, as well as free shipping, the Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress from Zinus Mattress is an overall good deal.

If you’re in the market for a new mattress, but you don’t think the Zinus Mattress is right for you, we have plenty of other reviews listed on our site. Make sure to check out all the information provided on our webpage – we’re a great resource if you’re in the final stages of choosing a new mattress.

Alternatives to Zinus Mattress

It’s easy to see why Zinus is so popular. However, there are some options you should consider before you pull the trigger and order a Zinus. Each of these alternative choices gets you all of the benefits from a Zinus mattress, but come with additional features or discounts to make them even better. The best alternatives to Zinus are…

Helix

Helix mattresses are one of the best options for an alternative to Zinus. Whereas Zinus tries to produce a mattress that will appeal to everyone, Helix produces a unique mattress for everyone.

When you order a mattress from Helix, you’ll take a sleep survey. Helix takes the results of that survey and uses them to help you find the best option for your needs. They can even take two surveys and find a compromise option or create a split bed. As a result, Helix is an especially good alternative to Zinus for couples and people that want very specific qualities in their mattress.

How are zinus mattresses shipped

Our twin size bed frames have a weight limit of 250 lbs and our Full, Queen and King have a weight limit of 500 lbs, excluding the mattress.

How do you fit an entire platform bed with all its part in a single box?
