Our Zinus memory foam mattress review is for the Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress. Zinus has been in business since 1987. While the first bed we bought is no longer available, the 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress they currently are selling is the closest match. There have been a few updates in the foam technology and design, but this bed is almost the identical model.

Zinus Memory Foam Mattress Review – Personal Use And Thoughts
We’ve had our Zinus memory foam mattress for almost a decade as I write this. It has held up incredibly well over the years. As mentioned elsewhere we would still be using this bed had we not converted a spare room into a guest bedroom where we moved this bed into.
For us we found that this bed had great motion isolation. Before when we had 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, and most memory foam beds for that matter. 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 am twice her weight. She has no issues with edge support. I didn’t really notice it being an issue for me either. It is softer than a spring mattress, but I don’t have any problems sitting there. When laying on the bed towards the edge I never had any issues either with feeling like I might slide off.
After almost a decade our bed does have impressions from where we have both laid. This is normal. In the very center of the bed we notice it is firmer then where we actually lay. Again this is normal. Your body weight and heat ‘breaks in’ the bed, and it will be a little softer in those areas. Taking a broom handle and testing the depth of the impression by laying it from the edge to the beds center show a dip of about 0.75″ inches is all. Which is pretty darn good after so many years.
Typically if the dip is more than 1.5 inches a memory foam bed is eligible for a warranty claim. But you would need to check with the manufacturer of your bed to know for sure.
The bed’s construction has been great. No rips or tears along seams or anywhere. We rotate it 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. This newer model will probably not take as long or have as strong of a smell when offgassing.
Our model was warmer to sleep in than a spring mattress. However we didn’t find it at too warm or uncomfortable. If anything it felt cozy to sleep in. We did end up using a lighter comforter on this bed, and at night we would turn down our thermostat a few degrees during winter.
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.
We checked with the Better Business Bureau and found Zinus has a A+ rating.
