Sleep Republic mattress. Best sleep in years.
My mother-in-law wanted a new mattress because she and my father-in-law are 78 and have a lot of aches and pains and a bad back. They don’t like to leave the house because of COVID so they wanted to wait. Besides it was too hard getting a new one up the narrow stairs even if it was delivered. We had bought a bed in a box from Sleep Republic and it was great. The in-laws Thought we were joking that a mattress came in a box and were pretty sceptical. Anyway, it arrived and went straight up the stairs no problems. They rang us the next day a...nd said it was beautiful and they both slept in! Never slept better. They don’t disturb each other when we rolling over during the night or getting up. They love the mattress. My father-in-law reports that it has kept its shape after being purchased in July. They don’t have email but wanted to say something about it.

***O...M...G...Lloooove My Sleep Republic Bed***
Extremely Happy with my new King Size SleepRepublic bed, bamboo sheet set & mattress protector!!! (Especially the unexpected eye mask & lavender pouches found in package!!)
I'm nearly 50 and have slept in bed ensembles all my life and was a bit hesitant to go with only a bedframe & mattress...now thinking should of done it sooner!!!
Ordering was a breeze, delivery was on time, setup very simple and Ohhh the quality and comfort!!! My god!! Sooooo good!!!
Was expecting that it may take few days to a week to get used to new bed/mattress...but was...

I ordered a King mattress from Sleep Republic in late July of this year. I was going to order the mattress the previous evening, but as I was awaiting delivery of my frame, I knew I had some time up my sleeve on mattress delivery. I decided that I would test their same-day delivery commitment. I ordered the mattress at around 9 am and, true to form, they delivered it by around 3 pm. I know that there are other countries in the world where same-day delivery is the norm... but we live in Australia. You have to wait at least 3 days for delivery....... even if its from your neighbour. This was really amazing. My partner and I have been sleeping on this mattress for around 8 weeks now and I can confirm that the support I feel in my back when I'm lying on this mattress is something I haven't felt in a long time. When I lie down, I feel all of the pressure in my joints fade away. If you've ever been mattress shopping, that feeling you get when you find the ideal mattress, when you immediately notice the pain in your joints disappear, when you don't have to keep certain muscle groups tight in case the support is not good enough... that's the feeling I get when I lie on this mattress. I was previously sleeping on a completely foam mattress and am a tummy sleeper. I've never been very good at sleeping on my back. When I'm sleeping on my stomach on this mattress, I feel as though my back is arching a bit too much. It's definitely not as comfortable to sleep on my stomach, but I wouldn't say that this is a bad thing. I can sleep on my back with this mattress and it is very comfortable to sleep on my side. It's probably time I kicked the tummy sleeping habit anyway. I would definitely recommend at least giving this mattress a try. Gone are the days when I will ever purchase furniture from a retailer again. They are over-priced and unsupportive if something goes wrong. With online purchases, they will only succeed if their service is exceptional and Sleep Republic is definitely exceptional. A few suggestions for improvement:

Great bed, we were a bit dubious about a bed in a box but rolled it out, cut the stuff and left it for a few hours.. voila! An inner spring mattress!
We've been on it for 3 months now and it's pretty good, no partner disturbance and still pretty firm.
Better than the expensive ones we have purchased previously.

Only had my mattress for one week, but a big thank you so far! Arrived less than 24-hours after ordering, is the most comfortable mattress I’ve owned - sleeping like a log now! I hope longer-term it suits my neck issue; however, I’m confident in their returns after reading other reviews. My only one suggestion - add handles to the mattress.

So far so good!!
I have only had my sleep republic mattress for two weeks now and i must say I'm definitely in love with it. I am generally a side/tummy sleeper and prefer a softer mattress. This mattress is a perfect combination of support and softness. Very happy with it so far!!

The most amazing mattress
I have an existing back injury, and have had spinal surgery in the last 10 years. Buying this mattress was the best decision I’ve ever made.
Like other respondents though, it really does need handles to help move it. Even just turning the mattress (not flipping) is a huge, 2-person challenge.

Great mattress, Awesome service but wasn't for me
Firstly I should say that I rarely write reviews and never on a product which I eventually returned, however, the service and product from this company deserves to be acknowledged.
Firstly delivery: I live in a suburb located between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, ordered 11.00pm, courier phoned 9.15am next morning to confirm delivery, mattress arrived 12.00pm same day.
Unpacking: Box has wheels and a handle, be careful it is very heavy and I managed to break the handle trying to lift it over a small step, I ended up sitting on the floor with the...

nearly 3 years and perfect
now had this mattress for nearly 3 years and the best sleep ever. No sagging at all. Have paid a lot more for other brands but this is by far the best, will buy another when the time comes ( I think it will be a while yet, mattress is perfect still!!)
Mattress base - fantastic
Brought the base as it looked good and was delivered free to my door.
Easy to move box from courier to bedroom with box on wheels.
Assembly very easy with clear instructions although it took a while to tighten the screws with the enclosed Allen key.
Looks great. Very pleased with purchase.

Fantastic mattress, on to number two!
My partner and I have been sleeping on a Sleep Republic mattress for two and a half years and are so impressed with it we’ve bought a second for the guest room. It was nice to get the mattress protector with our purchase too. The quality of the product can’t be faulted and our experience with the customer service has been great, we can’t recommend the mattress highly enough

The delivery was received a day from a purchase.
I was super excited to get this bed based on all these reviews. I have used it since Oct 2018 and it’s very sad to say the bed is no longer supportive at all. It started to hurt my back after 6 months to the point I couldn’t sleep. I even purchased the base from sleep republic to help it and no improvement in the support at all. I have spent over $1800 and I can’t even use it. I thought It just must be me but I bought a single mattress from fantastic furniture and it’s perfect, I have no back pa...

Still love getting in to bed after 2.5 years.
We purchased this mattress ONLY because we could purchase though Zipmoney with 6 months interest free. And I'm glad we did. It is the perfect medium feel for myself and my husband. I felt at the time of purchase that it felt as good as (or better than) mattresses that were more than double its price. My only criticism (And why I give it 4 stars after 2.5 years) is that the top laters have slightly flattened out over that time (There is no sagging though.) and I do still recommend it to people.

Incredible Customer Service, High Quality Mattress but Medium to Soft
I returned my Sleep Republic mattress but I still give it 5 stars.
After extensive research and the SR team answering all my questions with complete honesty and transparency, I ordered the mattress. I ordered at 11am and it was delivered by 4pm the next day! I was very impressed by this living in Adelaide where same day delivery or even next day delivery was not guaranteed.
After delivery, I found that it was easy to unwrap and I liked the presentation of the instructions and cutter in the calico Sleep Republic bag. The addition of the eye ...mask was also a nice touch. It was heavy to carry, but not more so than any other spring mattress, and with two people we easily got it upstairs and onto the bed frame. The box had wheels and a handle. In fact, in retrospect, this mattress was much easier to set up than some other “mattress in a box” beds. I commend SR on their thorough instructions and attention to detail (eg the wheels, handle and nifty cutting tool). Initially there was no off gassing smell however a few hours later, a mild but obvious chemical smell was there. I expected this with the memory foam and 30% synthetic latex layers. Nevertheless, the smell didn’t persist for very long with the windows open. I put the sheets on about 5 hours after opening and when I went back into the room a couple hours later, I couldn’t smell anything at all. Appearance wise, I liked the cashmere cover. I also liked the pattern on top that showed the 5 different pocket spring zones, a nice touch! The Sleep Republic label was sewed on back to front so it didn’t actually read Sleep Republic, but that isn’t an issue as the mattress would be covered in sheets anyway. I just hoped it wasn’t telling of the attention to detail in other areas of construction! It did appear very luxurious though, similar or perhaps even nicer than the 5k+ mattresses I had tried in stores (mattresses always on sale for 1500-2500 but without the 100 day trial).

Really happy with the mattress, base, sheets and customer service
I purchased the mattress and base bundle with free sheets and mattress protector. I've been sleeping on the bed for a week now. The bed is comfortable, medium firm with a soft pillowy top and the the sheets are incredibly luxurious.
The base assembly was straightforward and the mattress unwrapping easy. On the customer service side I received an apology that the mattress wouldn't be arriving until the next day - even though I technically ordered by 11am - 10:57 to be exact :) so I wasn't expecting it that day anyway. I asked for a delivery ...before 11am the next day and it arrived on time. I subsequently asked to swap the mattress protector for some more sheets as I didn't really need it. It was promptly swapped with no questions asked after I paid the small difference in price. I really cannot fault the customer service team, they are helpful, prompt and well... nice!

It was fun to unpack and watch it grow
We bought King Size mattress
It was fun to unpack and watch it grow
Cashmere Knitted Fabric top layer is like the $7,000 mattresses you see in the bed shops.
The product finish is just beautiful and so luxurious like the expensive hotels.
My partner and myself sleep very hot, we haven’t found this bed to be hot at all.
We wanted a bed with springs this mattress has a whopping 2250 springs
The customer service is brilliant with great communication.
If you are looking to buy a new Mattress
I would recommend you give this mattress a go with the 100 night trial you can’t go wrong.
The customer service was excellent.

Brilliant service but mattress didn't suit - too soft
I would like to give this company 5 stars because the service was absolutely amazing, responsive, easy refund and no-fuss. But the mattress didn't suit us. The good things: mattress seems to be great quality, lovely fabric, NO smell, no partner disturbance, easy to get out of box etc (we bought the King size). The not so good things (for us): the mattress was too soft, not supportive enough and on the 'hot' side. It's one of those mattresses that you sort of sink into on top. We prefer to sleep on top of a mattress rather than have tha...t sink-in feeling. My back was aching after a week of sleeping on the mattress. That being said, it has a similar feel to many many other pocket sprung medium/firm mattresses that you can buy at the big stores which are typically at a FAR higher price (plus you have to put up with all the nonsense that the salesperson spins). I'm torn about whether we would ever purchase a mattress in a box/online again without first trying. If we had tried this in a store and had the option to compare it side by side with a couple of other mattresses at the same time we would have known straight away it wasn't for us and that we preferred something firmer (or at least, without that 'sink-in' feeling). However, the advantages of buying online are that you don't get any of that unbearable mattress industry nonsense or have to deal with the ridiculously inflated prices or "half/price" / "all sizes for the price of a single" nonsense sales. (Do people actually fall for that?). Anyway.. back to the sleep republic mattress: it's great quality and if you like that sink in feeling but relatively medium/firm-ish support underneath then I recommend giving it a try. Thanks Sleep Republic for being so easy to deal with.. it would be great if you added a pillow top 'firm' version to your offerings; we would definitely buy it!

Do I have the same mattress and sheets?
Wondering if I have the same mattress as everyone is talking about. As a solo sleeper who sleeps in the middle of the bed, after 18 months I now roll into the middle if I try the sides as it has sagged. As for the sheets, I found the bottom sheet to ball up after first use. It was great initially, but sadly I very much regret this purchase.

Can't sleep on anything else now!
We had been searching for the most comfortable mattress on the market for a long time before finding sleep republic. Sleep republic have awesome reviews for their mattresses and sheets for a reason! We have ordered 6 or so mattresses from SR and each time we have been blown away with their customer service and follow through. Sean really cares about the experience of the customer. We have also received sheets from SR- we were devout Sheridan sheet customers but no more! The bamboo sheets are incredible and we are ordering more!! Lana and Steve
Questions & Answers
Hi there, wondering what gauge are the springs in the SR mattress. Notice have 3 times more springs than others but the weight is very similar....
Where can I go to buy ?
My question is in relation to smell. I purchase a boxed mattress very similar to your product. The same experience as I am hearing from your reviews.... next day delivery, great customer service, comfort etc. BUT the smell has been traumatic. I have had to put the foam parts out on the deck for the last 5 days and still the smell is overwhelming. I am waking up with the taste of the smell in my mouth as well as a sore throat. I believe that this is an individual experience as I must be so sensitive to the smell and the materials used WHICH is why it is important for me to know if your mattresses have a smell ( a toxic smell even though the material are tested etc and classed as non toxic at all)
Please give me A true response as do not want to waste my time or your time.
Look forward to your reply
I have purchased two Sleep Republic mattresses, and they have only had a “brand new” smell for the first few hours. I recall the instructions being to leave the mattress untouched for a day once opened, which I did, and I’ve not had any smell issues.
Before responding to your question I checked with two of my friends that have also purchased Sleep Republic mattresses after my recommendation, and neither recall any issues with smell beyond the very initial opening of the mattress bag & setup.
All Sleep Republic mattresses are aired in a sealed off dry room for 14 days before getting compress packed in the box. This process reduces the new smell that some materials like foam may have and allows for the water-based bonding agents that holds the comfort layers in place to dry properly.
We have not had any complaints from customers about strong toxic smells coming from the mattress.
