Established in 1979, Zinus mainly manufactured outdoor products before 2003 when it began to march its way into the “interior comfort product market”. The company has mattresses, bed frames, foundations, and sofas under its brand, and is best known for mattresses. During these years, Zinus is devoted to providing affordable access to quality sleep experience for customers. The company doesn’t have any brick-and-mortar offline stores.

The most economically-effective Zinus mattress is only $104, and the most expensive one won’t cost you over $500 to take it home. In spite of its wallet-friendly price, Zinus mattress hasn’t failed customers in quality. Therefore, the mattress is an excellent choice for those who are without thousands of dollars to spend on a bed, yet looking for better sleep experience.

Mattress Types

Memory foam mattresses adopt layers of foam that can conform to various sleeping positions and contour very well to your body. No matter what positions you prefer to sleep in, you can enjoy the perfect effect of pressure relief. And the Cooling Gel Memory Foam Mattress, with its specific cooling performance, makes you sleep cool all night long.

Spring mattresses feature new iCoil technology and let you sleep in peace. Now there are four products for you to choose from and they can provide firm support and solid sleep. Also, some of them are hybrid with foam and spring, giving you the comfort in both worlds.

Lifespan & Durability

It is reported that both the foam models and spring models are likely to have sagging problems or lack support after three years of use, performing rather poorly compared with average mattresses that can last about six to seven years. Furthermore, the spring models seem to have a shorter lifespan and tear more easily, so that they are better suited for children instead of adults.


Zinus mattresses are regarded as medium to firm, suitable for most sleepers. On a 1 to 8 scale, 1 being extra soft and 8 extra firm, Zinus mattress can be a 5 or 6. Here we present a graph to give you a direct impression of the firmness level of some models. For more detailed information about the firmness of the specific mattress that you have your eye on, you can consult the retailers.

Motion Isolation

Both types of mattresses have good performance in terms of motion isolation. Layers of thick foam can surely keep motion from transferring, and as a matter of fact, the spring mattresses also perform quite well in this aspect. So if you don’t want to be disturbed by your partner in the night, Zinus mattress would be a good choice.

Edge Support

Although support of Zinus mattress is deemed as inadequate for sitting or lying on the edge area, especially for large-sized people, spring models tend to perform a little bit better because of the foam-encased coils constructed in them. So if you prefer to sit on the edge of the mattress on a regular basis, it would be better to choose spring models.

Heat Retention

Zinus spring models, like most spring mattresses, can give you a cool night’s sleep. But the memory foam products, on the other hand, tend to trap more heat. According to some owners, they often wake up in the night feeling hot. The models that have infused gel can ensure longer cooler sleep because the materials can help to regulate your temperature. If you often sleep extremely hot, you should choose the select memory foam models or spring products that perform better in isolating heat.

Initial Odor & Off-gassing

A considerable number of customers who bought Zinus foam mattresses find serious off-gassing problems in the beginning, and some of them suffer from a headache because of the unpleasant odor. If you are sensitive about smell, you can choose spring products that emit much less unpleasant initial odor.

Conforming & Noise

Because of the thick foam layers, Zinus foam mattresses have better conforming ability than spring models. Anyone who suffers from severe body aches and pains should choose a foam-constructed mattress that alleviates pressure points. Like most foam mattresses, Zinus mattress doesn’t produce noise when you lie on it. Light sleepers who are easily disturbed by noise may want to avoid buying spring mattress models because it has caused some customer complaints.

Person Size & Sleep Position Suitability

Zinus aims to provide mattresses that suit sleepers who weigh variously and sleep in different positions, which is why the brand has developed a wealth of models till now. The following table lists all our possible recommendations after taking person size and sleep position into consideration. It would be better for you to have a good understanding of mattress suitability; otherwise, you will be very confused about different mattress types and numerous products on the market.

Topper Usage & Pressure Relief

Those who have chosen spring mattress may need to add a topper to improve its softness and comfort. Unless you have a habit of using a topper, it wouldn’t be necessary to use one on a foam mattress. The brand has several models that feature great pressure relieving effect and significantly benefit your body by minimizing pressure points.

Easy To Move & Maintain

The mattress weighs lighter than that from other brands, so it is easy to move or lift it although there isn’t any handle or grip. The foam models may wobble a bit when lifted and moved. You don’t need to flip your mattress, but 2-3 times of rotation from head to foot would prevent it from wearing and sagging.
