The Eve Light Mattress is the ‘budget’ memory foam mattress offered by popular UK brand Eve.

Eve have been around for quite some years now and they were one of the first ‘bed in a box’ brands to take off in the United Kingdom.

We’ve already reviewed the Eve Original Mattress, but where does the Eve Light stand?

Product website: www.evesleep.co.uk

This Eve Light Mattress review is going to focus on all of the important things that you need to know about this particular product as we look to see where it stands in comparison to our pick of the leading memory foam mattress on the market right now.

We’re going to be paying particularly close attention to the what the mattress is made of, how it feels and what real customers are actually saying about it.

There are so many different memory foam mattresses out there these days that it can be difficult to pick out the best product for your needs.

This Eve Light review should help to make your life a little bit easier when it comes to picking out the best mattress for you.

So, with the introductions out of the way, let’s start taking a closer look at the Eve Light.

Eve Light Mattress – The Basics

As we have already mentioned, the Eve Light is the budget memory foam mattress offering from UK-based mattress brand Eve.

The Eve Brand has been around since February 2015 and they have quickly established themselves as one of the leading manufacturers in the ‘bed in a box’ space.

The Eve Light mattress is one of the newer additions to the Eve range. It is described on the official website as being a “simplified” mattress designed to help support a restful night’s sleep.

It claims to be “perfect foam for first-timers” and uses just the right pressure relief, comfort and breathability.

The marketing material on the official Eve website says that the Light is heavy on quality but light on price.

The Eve Light uses the same EveComfort memory foam as their main product. It uses zoned memory foam, which basically means that certain parts of the mattress will have more ‘give’ to offer better pressure relief.

The marketing material on the official website goes on to claim that the Eve Light will be suitable for side, back and stomach sleepers.

The Eve Light is 20cm thick, which is about 7.8 inches. This is thinner than a lot of other options out there. Generally speaking, most of the memory foam mattresses we’ve reviewed are around 10 inches thick.

The Eve Light is marketed as a ‘medium-firm’ mattress which should be able to support all sleeping positions.

The marketing material also says that the foam used in the Eve Light uses tiny bubbles to help with breathability and ultimately cooling throughout the night.

The top cover of the Eve Light mattress is “moisture wicking” meaning that it should help to keep you cooler at night.

Let’s now focus on the layers of the Eve Light Mattress:

1) EveComfort Memory Foam – A springy memory foam to help keep your spine aligned
2) High Density Poly Foam Base Layer – A solid base for support with zoned areas to offer bettering contouring.

It’s great to see that the Eve Light uses a breathable type of memory foam. Indeed, Eve claim that their choice of memory foam is 30 times more breathable than older versions.

In case you didn’t know, memory foam mattresses have a bit of a reputation for getting too hot, so it’s good to see that Eve have addressed this issue here.

So, it all sounds pretty good to us so far, but we prefer not to pay too much attention to what manufacturers are saying about their own products. So let’s now take a look at the feel of the Eve light.

What Does The Eve Light Mattress Feel Like?

As mentioned above, the Eve Light is officially rated as a ‘medium-firm’ mattress.

The Eve Light has a good balance of being bouncy but firm. It reacts to the pressure you apply to it.

Generally speaking, the Eve had a firm but bouncy feel, and the zoned support for the different parts of your body is noticeable.

It feels slightly warmer than the Original Eve mattress, and so this may not make it ideal for people who get too hot at night.

It’s also worth noting that the ‘give’ of this mattress may not make it best suited to stomach sleepers. We think that the Eve Light is perfectly suited to side sleepers, and people who change their sleeping position throughout the night.

Also remember that because the Eve Light comes delivered in a vacuum-packed box, it may take up to a day to expand to its full size. It may also have a certain smell for the first few days of use.

The Positives

• Great Price – There can be no doubting the fact that the Eve Light is great value. If you’re shopping on the official website, a Single will set you back £279, and a King costs £499. It’s worth keeping a close eye on the official website, as they tend to offer good discounts and coupon codes from time to time.

• Good Design – The Eve Light has a simple yet effective design featuring responsive memory foam and high-density poly foam for support.

• Reputable Brand – Eve are one of the biggest brands in the mattress space. They’ve been around since 2014 and offer a 100 night home trial along with a 10 year warranty.

The Negatives

• May Not Suit Stomach Sleepers – As the Eve Light is softer in places, it may not be the best fit for stomach sleepers, who tend to prefer a firmer mattress. Consider the Casper Essential if you’re looking for a firmer memory foam mattress on a budget.

• May Feel Hotter than Others – Although Eve have attempted to address the issue of heat retention with the Light, it is not as cooling as the Eve Original.

Eve Light Mattress Reviews

The Eve Light is a relatively new addition to the Eve Sleep range, and for that reason, there are not too many customer reviews available.

The Eve website features a link to Trustpilot, but those reviews are mainly for the Original Eve Mattress.

Verified customer reviews will inevitably start to filter through once more people try it out.

Anything Else To Consider?

You should remember that the only way to be sure of whether a mattress is right for you is to try it out for a few nights.

It’s good to see that Eve offer a 100 night home trial with all of their mattresses. This means that you can return it for a refund if you’re not happy with it during that time.

If you suffer from back pain and are looking for a new mattress, we strongly recommend that you speak to a certified medical professional before making a decision on a new mattress.

Also, as we have mentioned above, memory foam mattresses tend to feel a little hotter than traditional mattresses, so this is something to bear in mind if you usually get a little hot during the night.

Review Conclusion – Final Thoughts

So, this brings us to the end of our Eve Light Mattress review.

Overall, we think that this is a great option if you’re looking for a high quality memory foam mattress on a budget.

The Eve Light is a ‘no frills’ version of the Eve Original, and uses two good layers of foam to help support a restful night’s sleep.

The zoned base layer and adaptive feel makes this mattress perfect for side sleepers in our opinion. Stomach sleepers may want to look for a slightly firmer mattress.

Overall, we think that the Eve Light is a great addition to the brand’s range of Mattresses and you’re not going to go too far wrong by trying this mattress, especially if you’re on a budget.
