The Tweak mattress is one of the latest additions to the online mattress industry, and it looks like it is going to make some major waves. The makers of the Tweak mattress realised that everyone has different needs when it comes to sleeping; however, the majority of people compromise their needs when it comes to a mattress, especially if they are sharing the bed with someone else. In other words, people tend to sacrifice what it is that they need in a mattress in order to ensure that the needs of their sleeping partner are met. When it comes to relationships, there are a lot of compromises that need to be made, but those compromises shouldn’t have to be made regarding the level of comfort and support one receives from their bed; both people should enjoy the same amount of comfort and support in order to get the most restful and rejuvenating night of sleep possible.
The Tweak mattress is the answer to every couples bed sharing dilemmas; it offers a half and half comfort that is custom tailored to meet the needs of couples who share a bed, in this case it is very similar to the Sleeping Duck mattress which also offers a half and half solution.
Expertly engineered, exquisitely designed and made from the highest quality materials, the Tweak mattress offers dual comfort, making it the ideal mattress for couples.
- Customizable firmness
- Low heat retention
- Minimal motion transfer
- Noticeable off gassing
- Can’t try before you buy
Below we have compiled our scoring card for the Tweak mattress.
The Helix mattress is a top competitor for the Tweak mattress. Both are tailored to the individual needs that different people have when they are sleeping, and both are constructed of innerspring coils and high quality foam; however, the cover of the Tweak mattress is washable, whereas the cover of the Helix mattress is not.
The Sapira by Leesa mattress is also a fair competitor for the Tweak mattress. Both are hybrid mattresses in that they are designed with a layer of innerspring coils and layers of high quality foam. The Tweak mattress offers a dual comfort design, while the Leesa does not, which makes the Tweak mattress a better choice for couples.
At the same price range as the Emma mattress and offering a similar mattress, we have the following:
Construction of the Tweak Mattress
The Tweak mattress is made up of three individual layers, which include poly foam, reflex foam and individually wrapped pocketed spring coils. Below is a more detailed look at the actual construction of the Tweak mattress…
The Top Layer
The first layer of the Tweak mattress is made of poly foam. This material is designed to contour to your body, providing you with just the right cushioning and hug to relive pressure point buildup and also provide deep compression support. Additionally, the poly foam pulls heat away from the body, preventing you from becoming overheated while you sleep, which means that you won’t wake up in a pool of sweat.
The Second Layer
The second layer of the Tweak mattress is made of a material that is completely unique to the Tweak mattress – a reflex foam dual comfort material. This state of the art material is the part of the mattress that is allows you to customise the firmness level to both you and your sleeping partner’s individual sleeping preferences, which can either be soft, medium or firm. This layer of the mattress is then designed to meet the firmness level that you select.
If you aren’t sure which firmness level to select, you will find some helpful advice right on the Tweak website. Important specifications, such as your body weight and your preferred sleeping position should be taken into consideration in order to determine which firmness level will best suit your needs.
The Third Layer
Lastly, on the bottom of the Tweak mattress is a layer of 1,800 pocket innerspring coils. Each of these coils is wrapped with a high quality fabric and provides you with support that adjusts to the weight and position of your body. In other words, you will receive more support where you need it and less support where you don’t need it. Additionally, the innerspring coils provide the mattress with just the right amount of bounce to make it easy to get in and out of the bed, and move around while you are sleeping; however, because the coils are individually wrapped in a high quality fabric, and thanks to the reflex foam, the motion that transfers through the coils is absorbed so that you won’t be disturbed by movement from your partner.
The Tweak mattress is wrapped in a cover that is made of organic cotton. This cover is hypoallergenic, so if you suffer from allergies, you don’t have to worry about having them aggravated. It’s also quilted, which makes it extremely soft and highly comfortable. The cover is also very breathable, which helps the mattress sleep cool. Tweak also made the cover of their mattress machine washable; when you want to freshen up your mattress, just take the cover off, toss it in the washing machine and you will have a fresh, cleaning surface to sleep on.
Hands On Review
The Tweak mattress is only available for purchase online, which definitely makes it easier to purchase, as you don’t have to worry about going to a store and feeling pressured by a salesperson and you can buy it from any location at any time. However, the downside of buying online is that you can’t try the mattress out before you buy it. This can make it difficult to determine whether or not the Tweak mattress is the best choice to satisfy your needs.
To help you determine if this bed is the right option for you, we have assessed the most important elements that impact the overall quality of the mattress. These elements include the following:
- The firmness of the mattress
- The comfort of the mattress
- The pain relief and support of the mattress
- The heat retention (how cool it sleeps)
- The level of off gassing (any odour associated with the mattress)
- The intimacy level
One of the factors that makes the Tweak mattress so unique is that you have the ability to select the firmness. Tweak offers you three different firmness levels to choose from: Soft, medium and firm. The mattress is then designed to your specification. What’s really cool is that you can select two different firmness levels; if you prefer a soft mattress and your sleeping partner prefers a firm surface, the mattress can be customised so that it will meet both of your firmness preferences.
Overall, we think that the Tweak mattress is extremely comfortable. As soon as you lie on the mattress, you will be wrapped in the plush fabric of the organic cotton cover. You will also feel the layer of poly foam adjust to and cradling your body, creating just the right level of support and comfort that each person’s body needs to receive a restful night of sleep. Add to that the 1,800 individually wrapped innerspring coils and you will have superior comfort that will allow you and your sleeping partner to drift off to dreamland with ease.
Pain Relief and Support
This is an element of the Tweak mattress that we were very impressed with, too. The firmness of a mattress play a big part in the amount of pain relief and support that it delivers. If you are on the heavier side, for example, a mattress that is too soft likely won’t provide you with the support that you need. Likewise, if you are on the lighter side, a mattress that is too firm can be create strain and pressure on the body. Since you can adjust the firmness of the Tweak mattress for your individual needs, you have the ability to receive the proper amount of support and pain relief that you need. Additionally, the innerspring coils are highly responsive, which means that it adjusts to your body and provides you with the support that you need, where you need it the most.
The top layer of the poly foam on the top layer of the mattress coupled with the organic cotton cover makes the Tweak mattress highly breathable. Body heat is pulled away from you so that it won’t collect on the top of the mattress and create a hot surface temperature. The innerspring coils add to the cooling power of the mattress, as they allow body heat to easily circulate out of the mattress and prevent you from overheating.
Off gassing is a common issue with foam mattress. There are certain chemicals that are used to create the foam materials, and those chemicals often have an odour to them. As a result, the odour can pour out of the mattress when it is first purchased, and that smell can be unpleasant.
With the Tweak mattress, we did notice some degree of odour; however, it was not terrible. Nevertheless, an odd odour is certainly not something that you want to have to deal with when you are trying to get a good night of sleep. To ease the smell, we left the Tweak mattress in a room with the windows opened and the odour dissipated. We were able to use it, without any odour present at all, within a few hours.
Believe it or not, the materials a mattress is made of can have an impact on intimate activities. If the mattress absorbs too much motion and there isn’t enough bounce, it can certainly impact amorous activities, as you will have to put in more energy to enjoy them.
Because the Tweak mattress has a layer of pocketed innerspring coils, the intimacy level is at a high. We don’t think that you will have to put in an extra effort to enjoy your adult activities on this mattress. With that said, we should also point out that the mattress does an incredible job of isolating motion transfer, which means that though you can enjoy just the right amount of bounce to make intimate activities easy and enjoyable, your sleep won’t be impacted by feeling your sleeping partner moving.
Sleep Position Ratings
The three most common sleep positions include:
Each one of these positions requires a different level of support in order to prevent pressure build up, which leads to pain that can impact your quality of sleep. Here’s a look at how the Tweak mattress delivers for each of these sleep positions.
We have to say that the Tweak mattress delivers great comfort and support for all three of these sleep positions. Because of the dual support layer, which allows you to customise the firmness level of the mattress for each sleeper, you can be sure that you will receive the support and the comfort that you need, no matter what position you prefer to sleep in. For example, back sleepers tend to prefer a firmer mattress than side sleepers. Since you can customise the Tweak mattress to meet your specific firmness levels, you truly can adjust it to ensure that you are comfortable, no matter what position you sleep in.
Bed Frame Compatibility
The Tweak mattress can be used with all types of foundations, including box springs, platform beds, adjustable beds and slatted frames.
