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.

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:

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...

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!

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.

This is actually a very good mattress
This is the first mattress I've had where you have NO back pain. I've been on it about 2 weeks now, but from the first night, it was excellent. When it came, I was a bit concerned that it was too firm, and when you lie on it, it doesn't have that overtly soft and comfortable feeling about it. but I sleep through the night with no tossing or turning, and often wake in the same position I was in when I went to sleep. It must be the foams, plus the zoned springs.
I have in the past suffered badly from nerve pain in my back, and pressure point so...reness, and I'm getting neither from this mattress. It's on a hard slatted Ikea bed base (a Mandal bed, rigid slats). This was a good risk to take, with the return guarantee thing. And as others say, the box containing it is very heavy. They've reinforced it with plywood, but if you need to pull it up any steps, I'd recommend having a removalist's trolley handy. And it is quite a bit heavier than a normal spring mattress in the same pricerange... I figure that means it holds the sheets in place better, but I'd hate to try and move it somewhere by myself. But it's a very good mattress, and I suspect it would suit most people. Edit: 2 years later, I love this mattress even more! It's the most comfortable mattress I've ever had, and I'm old. Very pleased I opted for this brand (and that was based on the reviews).
Questions & Answers
Is it ok to leave Sleep Republic mattress standing on its side for around 24hrs or will it be damaged?
Sleep RepublicSleep Republic
Hi John, No problems with leaving the mattress on its side for 24hrs. The foam & Fabric materials may flex a bit but will flatten out once its put down correctly.
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 ?
