Zinus Memory Foam Mattress Review

Zinus Memory Foam Mattress - 12 inch Green Tea King Size.

Zinus Memory Foam Mattress – 12 inch Green Tea King Size.

Thanks for checking out my Zinus Memory Foam Mattress review.  My wife and I bought our first Zinus memory foam bed over ten years ago.  This review is for a Zinus Memory Foam Green Tea Mattress.

Zinus has been in business since 1987.  While the first bed model we bought from them is no longer available, we recently purchased a 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress they currently are selling.  There have been a few updates in foam technology and design over the years, making this latest bed we bought the best one yet!

Zinus Memory Foam Mattress – My Disclaimer

As mentioned above my wife and I own and use Zinus memory foam beds.  I only recommend products that I own, use, and like.

Many memory foam mattress reviews on other review sites analyze half a dozen beds or more.  Obviously the reviews on such review sites are written by people who haven’t even used a fraction of the beds they are writing about.  Those reviewers can’t possibly know what it’s like to sleep in all those beds they review.  They pull their information from the manufacturer websites, from other blogs, from a variety of online sources, all in the effort to get you to buy a bed through their web site.

The Zinus Memory Foam Mattress being reviewed and recommended here is owned and used daily by myself and my wife, as well as house guests sleeping in spare bedrooms.

Zinus Memory Foam Mattress Review


Zinus makes a variety of memory foam bed sizes.  From a narrow twin all the way up to California King.  They come in a variety of mattress thicknesses as well; six, eight, ten, and twelve inch thicknesses are available.

This review is based on the latest Zinus mattress my wife I purchased; The Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress in in king size.

The foam being used to make this newer model is partially infused with plant base material.  This helps cut down on some of the ‘offgassing’ that was mentioned on our ‘What Is Memory Foam’page.

Layers Of Foam

This particular bed uses four layers of foam. Another update from the first model bed we purchased that only had three.  This memory foam mattress will likely be a little cooler compared to older model memory foam mattress beds.

  • 3 inches of memory foam
  • 2 inches of comfort foam
  • 3.5 inches of high-density airflow foam
  • 3.5 inches of high-density airflow support foam

Personal Use And Thoughts

We’ve been using Zinus memory foam mattresses for almost a decade as I write this.  The original one has held up incredibly well over the years, and still utilize it in our guest bedroom.

For us we found that the newer bed has greater motion isolation.  Before when we had been using spring mattress, my wife and I would have to be careful when re-positioning ourselves at night as to not shake the bed and wake each other up.  That is not an issue with this bed.  I can toss and turn and the bed will not transfer that motion anywhere else on the bed.

When sitting on the edge of a foam mattress ‘edge support’ can be good or bad depending on a few factors.  Usually it depends on the density and firmness of the foam, but it also has a lot to do with the weight of the person sitting.  My wife is tiny.  I weight a lot more at 250 pounds.  She has no issues with edge support.  I didn’t really notice it being an issue for me either at my larger size.  It is softer than a spring mattress, but I don’t have any problems sitting on the side.

Zinus Memory Foam Mattress Setup, Sleep, And Maintenance

The bed’s construction is fantastic. No rips or tears along seams or anywhere. We rotate our Zinus memory foam mattress 180 degrees about four to five times per year, and would vacuum it just as much.

When we first received and setup our model of bed it did have some offgassing. We left it in our room for a couple of days with a cracked window and it was just fine after about 72 hours.  Newer models will probably not take as long or have as strong of a smell when offgassing as technology in manufacturing advances.

Some peoeple are considered about memory foam mattresses sleeping warmer compared to spring loaded beds.  My wife and I didn’t find our newest Zinus memory foam mattress too warm or uncomfortable. If anything it felt cozy to sleep in.

Compared to our first Zinus purchased over ten years ago, this newest one is much more comfortable to sleep in and cooler due to the green tea plant extracts used on manufacturing.

My wife and I both sleep on our sides and backs. So we tend to switch up our sleeping positions a few times during the night. We both found this bed to work great for all comfort positions.
