How can one EOS mattress offer different firmness levels?
The inner layers are accessible via zipper and can be stacked in different configurations to achieve just the right feel. Think of each configuration as a unique "recipe" which is customized just for you. When you choose a standard firmness level (i.e. "firm," "medium," etc.), you are picking a preset recipe of layers that results in that comfort level. The recipe can be adjusted at a later date if the feel is not exactly what you want. We recommend that you start with one of our standard recipes (extra-firm, firm, cushion-firm, medium or plush) and then adjust as needed after you have tried at home. You can swap layers with us for free for 100 nights.
What are the standard configurations for each comfort level?
The coils come in three firmness levels: extra-firm, firm and soft. The latex comes in three firmness levels: firm, medium and soft. The following are our standard recipes:
"Extra-Firm" = firm latex over extra-firm coils
"Firm" = medium latex over firm coils
"Cushion-Firm" = soft latex over firm coils
"Medium" = medium latex over soft coils
"Plush" = soft latex over soft coils

What is the ideal firmness for side sleepers/back sleepers/stomach sleepers?
There is no perfect rule, but the goal is to find the firmness that keeps your spine aligned. Generally, side sleepers will like a softer mattress since their shoulders and hips push further down into the mattress. Stomach and back sleepers can usually be comfortable on any firmness type, and it comes down to personal preference. Ultimately, however, it is extremely subjective. The benefit to EOS is that you don't need to stress about it. Start with your best guess. Then change it for free without the need to return and buy a whole new mattress. Our specialists will work with you to swap out layers at home until your mattress is just right.

Can I order the EOS without coils?
Yes! Our EOS Trilux
is an all-latex mattress. It is made with three layers of latex instead of the hybrid mattress design of the EOS Classic.
Do I need a foundation/box spring with the EOS mattress?
No. The purpose of a foundation is to support the mattress above it and to bring the surface of the mattress to a height that is comfortable for getting in and out of bed. If you have a bed that comes with a supportive platform at the correct height, there is no need for a foundation. If your platform is made of slats, please ensure that the spacing between slats is no more than 3" apart. Slats that are spaced too far apart can create grooves in the bottom of the mattress over time.
How long does assembly take?
About 10-15 minutes. We recommend having two people for assembly, but this is not strictly necessary. For assembly instructions watch our assembly video above.
How is EOS Pillowtop different from EOS Classic?
