Eve and Sleeping Duck mattresses are part of the new revolution in advanced foam mattresses. In this guide, we'll be comparing the two brands, and seeing which is more suitable for your needs.

Prices and sizes

Both mattresses come in a range of UK and EU sizes, with Sleeping Duck's largest size being a super king. Eve's range goes up to a 7ft by 7ft (215cm by 215cm) option. The Eve mattress is also around £50 cheaper in each size option.

Layers

The Eve mattress has four layers to Sleeping Duck's five. However, the Sleeping Duck mattress is unique in that it offers an interchangeable top layer. This can be set to either a medium or hard firmness rating, or even half and half. Let's take a look at the layers in more detail:

Eve

  • Cover – A 100% polyester cover, with a white top and bright yellow sides, which is topped with a thin, knitted fabric layer.
  • Top Layer – A 4cm memory foam layer designed for comfort, cooling and providing pressure relief and support.
  • Middle Layer – A 3cm layer of polyurethane foam, which has a lower density to enable it to increase airflow and prevent heat retention.
  • Bottom Layer – An 18cm high-density support foam base layer. This is the foundational layer for the mattress, helping it to keep its shape and stay strong.

Sleeping Duck

  • Cover – A two-tone white and grey cover, made from a blend of rayon from bamboo on the top and polyester side panels. The cover is also completely removable.
  • Top Layer – A 1.9cm latex foam layer, designed to provide most of the cooling, bounce and comfort.
  • Second Layer – A 1.9cm memory foam layer, which works with the top layer to create pressure relief and contouring.
  • Third Layer – A 6.4cm of polyfoam, to aid pressure relief and provide support. The polyfoam also acts as a transitional layer.
  • Bottom Layer – A 21.6cm of pocketed coils, providing deep compression support and the foundation for the mattress as a whole.

The Eve mattress is 25cm in depth, whilst the Sleeping Duck is a whopping 30.5cm in depth. As you can see, they are constructed in a very different fashion.

Firmness, Comfort and Support

The Eve mattress has a medium firmness rating. As discussed previously, the Sleeping Duck mattress can have either a medium or hard firmness, or half and half. Let's look at the pros and cons of each mattress in this department.

Eve

  • Moderate sinkage meaning that the Eve never makes you feel stuck in it, as some traditional memory foams can.
  • Great support and pressure relief from the memory foam, with added support from the polyurethane foam below.
  • Minimal weight / motion transference, meaning that if you're sleeping with a partner who moves a lot during the night you won't be disturbed.
  • Lacking a little in bounce and can feel a bit too rigid.

Sleeping Duck

  • The Sleeping Duck is notable for its ability to keep sleepers cool and does not retain any heat.
  • The layer of microcoils help to create a good level of sinkage without any pressure points being created, and the 5-zone system means that the mattress adapts quickly to any sleeping position.
  • The hybrid design of the mattress means that the mattress has a good level of bounce, as well as good motion transfer.
  • The contour and hug of the Sleeping Duck provides a great mix of sinkage, contour and support.

Other factors

Both companies come with a 10-year guarantee and a 100 night trial period. If you're not satisfied, both will offer a full refund. The mattresses both have free delivery and arrive compressed in a box.

Which mattress is best for me?

Both mattresses offer appealing factors, but here are some points to consider when deciding which best meets your requirements.

Eve

We'd recommend this mattress if:

  • You're on a tighter budget, as the Eve is around £50 cheaper than the Sleeping Duck.
  • You want a more traditional style memory foam mattress with medium firm support.
  • You want a cool night's sleep, as the Eve is one of the best at keeping sleepers cool.
  • You don't mind a lack of edge support on the mattress.

Sleeping Duck

We'd recommend this mattress if:

  • You want to be able to choose between medium and firm mattresses, as well as having the chance to trial both options.
  • You want a hybrid mattress. The hybrid design provides great support, cooling, edge support, response and bounce and is still very reasonably priced.
  • You want a cooler mattress that stays cool and comfortable throughout the night.
  • You want a supportive mattress that adapts quickly and doesn't allow any pressure spots to form.
