Zinus is a leading brand in mid-range memory foam mattress segment. It sells in huge numbers and has highest number of user reviews and ratings when compared to other memory foam mattresses. Please click here to check the reviews directly.

How to judge whether your investment on Zinus will be worth? The following pointers are directly drawn from user reviews.

All products from Zinus are offered at competitive pricing

Additionally, features like motion isolation, deep compression support and body countering plus quality of material are exceptionally good and well worth the money

Memory foam layer is infused with anti-oxidant and anti-fungal properties of natural green tea extract which is not part of other memory foam mattresses.

Finally, it surely lasts between 5 to 10 years, thereby justifying your investment (it comes with a 10 year warranty too). In worst case scenario, even if it lasts for just 5 years then it’s something like you have spent just around $3 per month on your mattress.

However, I will not say that Zinus mattress performs like a premium luxury memory foam mattress.

But weighing its performance and durability against its price tag makes Zinus a definite bet. You can surely experience the comfort of a memory foam mattress for much lesser price.

And this is perhaps the very reason why most people prefer Zinus in mid-range memory foam segment.

Layer Construction - Zinus 12 inch Mattress

Zinus mattress is 12 inch in thickness and comes in 4 layers. providing medium comfort.

Top Memory Foam Layer: 3 inch memory foam layer. This memory foam layer is what conforms and aligns with body curvature at pressure points like neck, shoulder and hips.

The more it hugs to your body, the superior is the experience of sleeping on memory foam mattress. It provides right amount of sink, dipping by just 1 or 1.5 inch thus helping you sleep on your back, sides and stomach.

Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress Layer Structure

Mid Comfort layer: 2 inch poly comfort foam layer that is sandwiched between top soft memory foam and high density foam layer. It acts as secondary memory layer taking additional pressure from the top comfort layer.

It draws weight from top memory foam layer and distributes it evenly across the entire mattress surface area much needed to achieve motion isolation feature.

Mid High Density Layer: 3.5 inch air flow high density layer. It’s designed to draw heat from top layers and dissipate it downwards and away from the body thus creating a cooler sleeping surface.

Base High Density Foundation Layer: Most base layers are solely designed to sustain weights from top layers and not to sink further downwards to avoid bottoming out. Whereas, base high density air flow foundation layer in Zinus mattress is selectively designed to perform both heat dissipation with air flow columns and sustain weights to support critical pressure points without bottoming out.

Cover: Made from knitted Jacquard, the cover is both soft in feel and highly breathable. The basic ventilation through partially transparent layer reduces heat retention around top memory foam and secondary comfort foam layers.

Heat Dissipation

Even though Zinus mattress does not have gel layer with beads to provide extra cooling effect but the way the top 3 layers plus the breathable cover are included in one unit, make Zinus mattress as much cool as any other gel memory foam mattress. I have reviewed several memory foam mattresses but Zinus memory foam mattress is class apart.

Alignment To Body Curvature

Literally the top 3 inch memory foam layer hugs to your body curvature, perfectly aligning around neck, shoulder and hip areas. And the sink too won’t be more than 1 inch to 1.5 inch deep.

This ensures that you enjoy the comfort of sleeping on a memory foam mattress yet won’t sink deep into it. Yes, 3 inch memory foam sinking by 1 to 1.5 inch when you lie on it means it is great for people with average to above average weight.

Motion Isolation 

The top layer is also known to quickly bounce back to its original shape. The moment you lie on it, the layer sinks by an inch or so and the moment you get off the mattress, well within 3 seconds the memory foam layer gets back to its original flatness. This is very important while measuring motion isolation offered by any mattress.

Zinus comfortably passed the motion isolation test. It not only offered limited sink but also bounced back to its original flat shape pretty much quickly, within 2 to 3 seconds span on an average drawn after several iterations.

The 3 inch secondary support layer and the bottom 6 inch base foundation layer sustain weights up to 400 lbs without scope for bottoming out with increased weights. They also contribute to motion isolation by withstanding unbalanced weights when two persons with different weights sleep on either side.

Firmness level

Most memory foam mattresses in mid-range segment offer medium firmness level. Almost all of these mattresses, including Zinus 12 inch mattress fall at 5 or 6 positions on a scale of 1 to 10.

The reason being that mattresses that are too plush are only suitable for light weight people (mostly kids or young teens) and on the other side mattresses that are too firm are only for heavy weight or rather obese people.

Whereas, mattresses with medium firmness can cater to a wide range of audience who are mostly around average to above average weight. Means, people from mid 20’s to late 50’s can ideally find medium firm mattresses to be highly suitable for their physic and weight.

Comfort & Back Pain Relief

Comfort level is directly proportional to the amount of sink the top layer is offering without bottoming out. In case of Zinus mattress, as we discussed earlier about 1 to 1.5 inch dipping of the top memory layer which means the mattress is perfectly aligning around pressure points like neck, shoulders and hip.

The most annoying part of sleeping on plush mattresses is when your hip sinks deep into the mattress by more than 2 inches. This is what leads to severe back pain.

However, as Zinus mattress offers medium firmness across the entire sleeping surface including the central area, there really won’t be an issue with sinking or sagging or waking up with a sore back.

Although off-gassing is a common problem with most memory foam mattress but it’s really not at all an issue with Zinus green tea memory foam mattress. The reason we found from the company as well as from several user reviews is that the foam that is used in making Zinus mattress is NOT made harsh chemicals.

It’s chemical free and infused with green tea extracts. Hence, does not release unpleasant odor when you open it for the first time. This is perhaps the only mattress which you can start using immediately after it expands to its full capacity without worrying about annoying smell.

Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress Features


Frankly speaking this mattress is the best in mid range category. I myself recommend this mattress to all those who come to me asking for suggestions on buying a mattress within limited budget.

My reasoning being that if it really didn’t perform as per its specifications then we won’t be able to see so many reviews and such high rating for a mid-range medium firm mattress. Reviews and ratings is where everything boils down to.

Medium firm mattress with green tea extract, 12 inch 4 layered mattress offering motion isolation and no off-gassing make Zinus a leading seller in mid-range category.
