Emma is a mattress and bedding accessories company that was founded in Germany.

Their product is sold in over 25 countries worldwide, check out our detailed Emma mattress review or read on for a high level overview..
The Emma mattress is made up of three layers of foam. The top layer is made of breathable foam which is designed to regulate temperatures, the second layer is made of pressure-relieving memory foam which moulds to the body shape to provide support and reduce pressure points.
The bottom layer is made of supportive foam and pocket springs which provide stability and motion isolation.
In terms of firmness, Emma really only comes in one firmness level which is medium-firm.
Emma mattresses are priced from approximately €499 to €599
Everyone’s preferences can be different and some customers may find the Emma mattress more comfortable than others.
However the mattress has received positive reviews for its comfort from many customers and the company also offers a 200-night trial period to ensure customers try the mattress in the comfort of their own home.
The durability of the Emma mattress is generally considered to be good. The mattress is designed to be made of high-quality materials that are resistant to wear and tear and the company offers a 10-year warranty on their mattresses too.
The delivery of an Emma mattress may vary depending on location. When ordering on the website the mattress does say typically dispatched within 2-4 days then it will be with transit after that so it could be up to 7-10 days before you receive your Emma mattress.

IKEA operates in 400 stores over 50 countries around the world including Europe America, Asia and Australia.
The materials in an IKEA mattress can vary depending on the specific model and type of mattress. However many of their mattresses feature a combination of foam / springs. IKEA mattresses are known for using polyurethane foam, memory foam and latex foam.
The firmness of an IKEA mattress can vary depending on the specific model and type of mattress. IKEA offers a range of mattresses with different levels of firmness to accommodate different sleeping preferences.
Similar to the firmness, again it all depends on the specific model. The IKEA mattress roughly can start from €199 to €899.
Customer reviews of IKEA mattresses can be generally very mixed. People sometimes think the cheapest products are also very cheap in quality and comfort while the more expensive mattresses can be found comfortable and provide good support. As always it comes down to the customers preferences and needs.
IKEA mattresses are designed to last for a number of years with proper use and care. Some mattresses have different materials which can be more resilient and long-lasting than others. For example the latex can be more durable than the foam.
