Tuck Mattress is great if you
Are couple – In case you sleep with a partner, the Tuck Mattress is a perfect solution since you can feel zero motion transfer when you or your partner move around at night. In addition, it comes with a dual firmness option for each side of the mattress, so you both enjoy the sleeping surface of your preference.
Prefer to sleep cool- The combination of copper, micro, and pocketed coils make for a mattress that is breathable and sleeps exceptionally cool.
Fancy good edge support and responsiveness- If you are environmentally sensitive- the cover of the Tuck mattress is made of recycled plastic bottles.
Have more than a few extra pounds – This is a great mattress in terms of accommodating for heavier people. There is no weight limit in what the manufacturer can do for you, so do consider it as a valid option if you are overweight.
Prefer a hybrid mattress – In case you like the combination of different components like in the Tuck Mattress, there is little that can go wrong if you choose it. Made of premium materials, it will deliver for sure.

Great value for the price- You would expect that a mattress of this sort, with such cool features and the ability to personalize it as much as you please, would show in the price tag. Still, this is a
Tuck Mattress is not ideal if you
Don’t like the coil or hybrid mattresses- Although it has memory foam and other foams in it, this doesn’t feel like a true memory foam mattress. You should look elsewhere for that genuine sense.
So, what is the Tuck Mattress made of?
Bearing in mind that the actual structure of the layers of this mattress may vary based on the personalization features you introduce, the average Tuck mattress has the following construction.
Cover – The Tuck cover is made of a mixture of rayon and polyester, with a built-in cooling agent. This blend has 30% of the fabric used being Repreve™. This type of yarn is completely made of recycled water bottles. For instance, a queen sized bed will have about 40 water bottles.
Overall, it is a simple yet elegant textured surface with a zipper along the bottom. Still, Tuck advises you leave it on and do not remove it as it will be difficult to put it back on.
Top Layer: 1.5’’ of Copper Infused Gel Memory Foam with a density of 3.5lb. This material has unique cooling qualities as it works like a temperature regulator to ensure a cool sleep. In addition, it allows for an improved conformed feel. Copper is increasingly becoming a favorable material to use in a mattress, and you can spot it also in Layla mattress or the Alexander Signature Hybrid by Nest Bedding for example.
Second Layer: 0.75’’ of Continuous Process Latex made from Dunlop latex with a 3.0lb density. This type of latex is created through a continuous pour process. This eliminates the risk caused by air pockets and neither does it require glue seams which come with a Talalay latex.
Third Layer: 1’’ of Nano Coil System which leaves a wonderful floating feel. There are 1386 coils individually cased in fabric, specially designed to comfort any pressure point areas of your body.
Fourth Layer: 6’’ of Pocketed Coil Support Core encased in fabric. In particular, there are 1037 coils in a queen sized Tuck mattress. The designers of the mattress took care to fill the edges of the mattress with a higher gauge set of coils. This was meant to ensure a great edge support, a common issue usually in foam beds.
Fifth Layer: 0.75’’ of Transition Poly Foam to ensure the maximum level of comfort. This material has a density of 1.8lb.
Bottom Layer: 1’’ of Base Poly Foam as the foundation where the pocketed coil support core sits. This base foam has a density of 1.8lb.

The Tuck Mattress will have the firmness you choose based on the result of the Sleep Test. In case you are a couple, a highlight is that you can ask for different firmness options for each side of the mattress (dual firmness option is for free); this of course if you make your partner take the Sleep Test as well. In this sense, you will end up with just the perfect mattress for both of you.
That said, we tried the medium firm mattress we received. It actually felt softer than other models we tried in the past and overall had a pleasant and comfortable sleep. There were no issues of pain or lack of support during the testing period of the Tuck Mattress.
The Tuck Mattress does a great job delivering a supporting mattress all around. The 6-inch pocketed coil system integrated with Nano coils combined, make for a total of up to 2500 coils (Queen size). This ensures proper spine alignment, good pressure relief and overall a pleasant floating feel.
Sinkage and Motion Transfer
While we felt that we sunk deeper into this mattress compared to other foam mattresses, this was not unpleasant. It was more of a hugging feel which we welcome.
As far as motion isolation, this mattress does an exceptional job. There was no sense of motion transfer caused by a partner tossing and turning. This is thanks to the memory foam and individually pocketed micro coils which leave no motion movement show. So, the Tuck mattress is a good choice if you are a couple.
Another area where the Tuck Mattress excels is when it comes to edge support. The higher gauge set of coils at the perimeter of the mattress does make a difference. You will at no point feel there is any chance of falling off the bed and you will easily sit on the edge to put on your sock or do anything else you have in mind during the day.
Due to common problems of feeling like you sink into quicksand with memory foam, the designers of the Tuck Mattress added the micro-coils and latex which allow all the responsiveness you need, at least much more than traditional memory foam mattresses would, so the mattress regains its original shape quite fast.back to menu ↑

Doesn’t Sleep Hot
You will be pleased to know that the Tuck Mattress does an excellent job keeping you cool. The copper-gel infused memory foam combined with the Dunlop latex and micro and individually wrapped coils, deal really well with heat retention as they allow better airflow.
It is highly unlikely you will sense overheated on Tuck. Without the doubt, the Tuck is a breathable and cool mattress to sleep on.
There was only a minor smell upon unpacking the Tuck Mattress, which quickly dissipates in a day’s time. Just air the mattress overnight and it will be fine to sleep on the next day.
Our impression is that this custom made mattress manufactured in the USA is made of high-quality premium components and will last the test of time.
This is due to the coil support system which is better quality and more durable than polyfoam, the Dunlop latex used which is also resilient, the thicker than usual 1.8lb density base and transition foams. Only thing is the copper gel- infused memory foam layer is 3.5lb, alternatives whereas anything above 4lb is thought amazing.

Overall, going through the whole experience of taking the Sleep Test and getting my fully customized mattress was a great one. We were impressed by the user-friendly order process, the ability to get two firmness options for each side of the mattress and actually sense the difference as per our preferences, as well as the fact that it works great for all sleeping positions. This is by far the best custom mattress we tried.
It takes the game to a whole new level and we appreciate all the thinking behind it. What you get is a cool, comfortable and supportive mattress made of high-quality materials at a good value for the money. Thus, we absolutely recommend the Tuck Mattress.
