Zotto is an American based mattress manufacturer, and it is one of the newest additions to the bed in a box mattress platform. The makers of Zotto had heard countless complaints from consumers who stated that they just couldn’t find a mattress that suited their specific needs; they were either too soft or too firm, and they didn’t offer the right amount of comfort and support. In other words, they found that consumers were saying that there wasn’t a ‘one size fits all’ mattress, which can make it difficult for the people to find the right mattress to suit their specific needs.
To solve this issue, the makers of Zotto were on a mission to create a mattress that would truly deliver the right level of support and comfort for all sleepers – from a heavyweight bodybuilder to a petite dancer. In other words, they have created a mattress that truly is one size fits all. Based on the findings of extensive scientific research and numerous sleep trials, the Zotto mattress offers an exceptional support system for all body types and all sleep positions.
The Zotto mattress is made of the highest quality materials, including gel infused foam, Cool Flow memory foam, Energex foam and high-density support foam. These materials are strategically laid out to offer the ideal layer of support, pain relief and comfort for all sleepers.
Does the Zotto mattress live up to the claims that it makes to deliver a sleeping surface that will allow all sleepers to receive the most restful and restorative night of sleep? In this review, you will find out.
The Casper mattress is similar to the Zotto mattress. Both contain are comprised of four separate layers of high-quality foam, and both are intended to remain cool and offer support and comfort that adjusts to various body types. The Zotto mattress is 10 inches thick, while the Casper mattress is 9.5 inches thick, and we think that the Zotto mattress does do a better job at adjusting to the sleeper to provide the proper support and pain relief.
Tuft and Needle is another competitor for the Zotto mattress. Both are 10 inches thick, and both are made of high-quality foam materials. However, the Zotto mattress is made of four separate layers, while the Tuft and Needle mattress is only comprised of two layers. With more layers, the Zotto mattress has a better ability to adjust to an individual’s body weight and sleep position preference, thereby providing the proper support and comfort.
Below is our final score of the Zotto Mattress based on multiple criteria that we use when testing all of our mattresses.
What’s It Made From…
The Zotto mattress is comprised of four separate layers of foam materials, which combine to make a mattress that is a total of 10 inches thick. The materials included in the layers of the Zotto mattress include gel infused memory foam, Cool Flow memory foam, Energex foam and high-density support foam.
The Top Layer
On the top of the Zotto mattress is a layer of 2 inches of gel-infused memory foam. This layer provides the mattress with the initial comfort that you feel when you lie on it, as it is highly adaptive and creates a hugging feeling that is just right for your body. The infusion of gel in the memory foam creates a cooling effect, as it absorbs heat and prevents the surface of the mattress from overheating, thereby keeping the sleep surface cool and comfortable.
The Second Layer
The next layer of the Zotto mattress is made of 2 inches of Cool Flow memory foam. This layer of the mattress helps to further regulate the temperature of the sleeping surface, as it further draws heat away from the body and filters it throughout the rest of the mattress. The Cool Flow memory foam also adds another layer of support for the Zotto mattress, as it further contours to the body and creates even more cradling, providing pressure point relief.
The Third Layer
Next, there is a layer of 2 inches of Energex foam. This material provides a small amount of bounce for the mattress, while also reducing motion transfer, which adds to the overall comfort that the bed provides. Additionally, the Energex foam serves as a transitional support for the mattress, as it creates a consistent amount of push-back and support for people of all shapes and sizes and all sleep positions. In other words, the Energex foam prevents the mattress from ‘bottoming out’ so to speak or excessive sagging.
The Bottom Layer
On the bottom of the Zotto mattress is a layer of 4 inches of high-density support foam. This layer serves as the foundation of the mattress, supporting the upper three layers and helping the mattress retain its shape. It also provides an additional layer of deep compression support adding even more comfort and further preventing any pain in areas that are prone to developing pain while sleeping.
The cover of the Zotto mattress is made of a blend of polyester and rayon and offers a unique two zone design. The cover is thick and creates a feeling that is similar to a sheet; however, there are areas that are thinner, which allows for improved airflow. The construction of the cover allows you to really feel the effects of the foam layers right against your body, and it also adds another layer of softness to the mattress, further improving the overall comfort that it delivers. The cover is also very durable, so we are confident that it will properly protect the mattress and allow it to retain its shape.
Hands on Review
Since the Zotto mattress is a bed in the box model, it can only be purchased online and is shipped directly from the manufacturer. This definitely alleviates the stress that is often associated with shopping for a new mattress, as you don’t have to endure the high-pressure tactics that many salespeople use, and it also helps to lower the overall cost of the mattress. However, on the downside, since the mattress can only be purchased online, you can’t try it out before you buy it. As a result, it can be difficult to determine if it is the best option for you.
We have assessed the elements that impact the overall quality of the Zotto mattress, which impact the type of comfort, support and essentially, the type of sleep you can expect to experience on it. The elements we inspected include:
On a firmness scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest, we give the Zotto mattress a score of 5. It really is a neutral mattress, which means that it will meet the interests of the majority of sleepers.
When we first tested the Zotto mattress, we did notice a significant amount of sinkage and hug. This is the intention of the mattress and is directly related to the first two layers of memory foam. The hugging feeling is the result of the exceptional contouring ability of the memory foam layers. Thanks to the contouring of the mattress, you receive the proper amount of support where you need it the most, which reduces strain, thereby providing pressure relief. Despite the hug and sinkage, there is definitely a balanced level of support, thanks to the layer of Energex foam. This material evenly distributes weight throughout the entire mattress, providing you with deep compression support that alleviates strain and pain.
Another issue that can impact the comfort that a mattress delivers is motion transfer, which is particularly problematic for couples. With the Zotto mattress, there is minimal motion transfer, which means that you won’t be disrupted by any motion that your sleeping partner may create.
Pain Relief and Support
The Zotto mattress does offer an exceptional amount of support. It adjusts to the body shape and weight, creating support where it is needed the most, and distributing weight throughout the mattress. As a result, this bed offers great pressure relief and deep compression support, which helps to minimize the development of pain. It also helps to keep the spine in proper alignment, which further reduces pressure buildup and pain.
One of the main highlights of the Zotto mattress is the cooling features that it provides, and we have to admit that we were thoroughly impressed by how cool it sleeps. The top gel infusion of the top layer of memory foam helps to draw moisture and heat away from the body. The Cool Flow memory foam has an open weave construction, which allows the heat and moisture that the upper layer pulls away from the body to circulate out of it, making the mattress truly breathable and preventing you from overheating so you can stay cool and comfortable throughout the night.
Off-gassing refers to the odor that a new mattress emits. This is a common issue for foam mattresses, as the chemicals that are used during the construction of the foam tend to have a strong smell, and that smell can pour out of the mattress when it is new. With the Zotto mattress, we did not notice any odor at all when we first received it. Once it was set up, we were able to use it right away.
Intimate activities can often be impaired on mattresses that are constructed completely of foam, as they absorb a tremendous amount of motion. With the Zotto mattress, there is a nice level of bounce, thanks to the Energex foam. This helps to improve the intimacy level of the mattress when compared to other foam mattresses; however, you should expect to exert a bit more energy when it comes to amorous activities, as this bed does absorb a great deal of motion.
Sleep Position Ratings
