Looking for back relief
Bit daunting buying a mattress online without lying on it, but the reviews and cost made it worth a try. Dealing with the company was very easy, ordering and delivery great. No longer waking with lower back pain, still adjusting to side sleeping but very happy with our purchase, loving the comfort and support. Glad we purchased the Medium King.

Very comfortable and supportive
After returning from an overseas holiday and sleeping on very comfortable memory foam mattresses, I realised our old mattress just wasn’t cutting it. Six weeks earlier I’d fractured my back and so was looking for support and comfort, a mattress that didn’t sag, and kept my spine aligned as it was healing.
We looked at a few of the large bedding stores, but I wasn’t happy to spend thousands, at if I was unhappy, I would be stuck with the mattress. We decided we had nothing to lose by trying a Sleeping Duck considering the 100 day return policy. My husband was sceptical at first, but we visited the furniture store in Lilyfield, Sydney that had the mattress on display, and after trying it, he was totally onboard.
As he is a back sleeper, he wanted the firm option, but medium best suited me as a side sleeper. We’ve always had a firm mattress in the past, but as I age, I have noticed some hip pain developing on firm mattresses, so again, I had nothing to lose by trying a half half, medium side for me. If I needed more firmness, I could swap it before the 100 day trial ended.
It’s now been about six weeks, and we’re very happy with our choice.
Delivery, quality of manufacturing, and customer service have all been excellent. My recovering back injury is doing really well with this new mattress, and sleep quality has improved, with no more hip aches.
I would not hesitate to recommend Sleeping Duck mattresses to anyone.

Issues better. No sagging yet but only had for 2 months but it is a definite thumbs up for both me and my husband
I am so happy with my purchase, very comfortable and super supportive, I really love it!
Quality of sleep has improved, wonderful experience with the Sleeping Duck Team.
Would highly recommend this mattress.

Comfort and Support
I have along history of back and neck issues and move a lot during the night due to pain. My partner has zero disturbance. I must say the mattress felt softer than I'd usually pick though we purchased the firm. That said, it is very supportive and comfortable. I wouldn't want it any softer. I have always paid top dollar for mattresses in the past but have still experienced a high turnover due to the dipping that always eventuates. I did a lot of researching this time before opting for the Sleeping Duck. This mattress has so far kept it's shape perfectly. I also purchased the pillows and when they arrived I thought they may be too low, but I find it very comfortable and it has kept it's shape perfectly. No more disturbance, not too hot and so far, no dipping. I have nothing negative to say. You can have different support ratings on either side for personal tastes and make changes if you'd rather it softer/harder. Sleeping Duck have certainly gone out of their way to make sure their product can be altered to suit any comfort range. Make sure you have some muscle to get it in to the room (ours is a king) and had to take it upstairs. We had to wait for some help. You have the ample trial period with full refund guaranteed if it does not suit, so absolutely nothing to loose by trying it. Sleeping Duck also follow up with your purchase to ensure all is well. My daughter is about to purchase one for herself after trying mine. I highly recommend this mattress and this company. Sleeping Duck are to be congratulated on a great product and fresh way of running a company. Good on you!

Love it !
Purchase a Sleeping Duck mattress in July and we couldn't be happier.
Having spent thousands of dollars on mattresses over the years ( The previous mattress purchased from Snooze $2500,00 doing the "Bed Match" system and we were uncomfortable from night 1. Mattress now in spare room)
We have been super impressed with Sleeping Duck from the Ordering to Delivery and watching the mattress spring to life from a box. ( Who would of thought - a mattress in a box)
I have found the mattress a little on the warm side and will purchase Bamboo/Tencel sheets in the near future,. My husband finds the mattress perfect and uses an electric blanket.
Thankyou Sleeping Duck for an awesome product at a great price
Purchased in July 2019 for $1,349.00.
Best of both worlds
great mattress with half firm and half medium. Tried plenty of mattresses and the ones I liked, my wife was not so keen on and vice-versa. Saw the half half with the 100 night trial and thought that was a great option.
We both love the mattress and will consider them for the kids when they need to be changed.
Purchased in May 2019 at sleeping duck for $1,449.00.
Second 'mattress in a box' we've bought - this one much better
We had a 'koala' mattress for a little over 12 months but found it had formed grooves where we slept (we are tall and slim). The warranty covered the grooves and after researching through choice, decided to give sleeping duck a go, based on the best 'sag' ratings. So far so good! Incredibly comfortable and no sign of indentations yet. Mattress is much heavier and 'sturdy' than the competitors and also more supportive at the edges. Value for money is very high and with the trial period there really isn't a reason to shop for a mattress the 'traditional' way/

New standard in customer support & satisfaction
Sleeping Duck sets a New standard in customer support, ensuring you get the best value out of your new mattress. they followed up to make sure I'm happy and did not hesitate to send me extra foams to get the right firmness. the outcome was better than I could have dreamed of, my chronic back pain has eased considerably and I now enjoy deep sleep every night... thanks team duck!

Purchased in June 2019.
I am sleeping so much better than I have for years. A lot less nerve pain and not getting disturbed by my partner moving. Very happy with mu Sleeping Duck!
Purchased in July 2019.
A real good experience right from the start - Our delivery man was fantastic arriving on time and most helpful explaining the mattress. Only negative was assembling the solid base we purchased - just took a bit longer than I expected but it was worth it
The mattress is very comfortable and a pleasure to sleep on - we would thoroughly recommend Sleeping Duck Mattresses
Purchased in July 2019 at Sleeping Duck.
Sleep is so much more enjoyable
Both my husband and myself haven’t slept so well for a long time. I use to wake up with my back aching every morning but not anymore. The mattress has maintained its shape very well and don’t see it changing anytime soon. To watch the mattress take shape when we opened the box was a real experience. I couldn’t believe that such a comfortable mattress would be the result.

The Sleeping Duck range of mattresses are some of the highest-rated mattresses on ProductReview, and they offer a few unique features to stand out from other boxed-mattress companies such as a variety of firmness options and not going with an all-foam construction. The main gripes from the small number of negative reviewers seem to centre around the longevity of the mattress, which is a common theme across the entire mattress category.
