Sleeping Duck originally launched in Australia in 2014, after a successful year the owners Winston & Selvam decided to launch in the UK.
As we’re reviewing the mattress Sleeping Duck provided us with both memory foam firmness (medium & firm) for us to test, this layer of the mattress is removable (more on this later).
In this review you are going to see us unbox the mattress, see how it’s built and what materials are used and go all in with our hands on review.
As with all our reviews we will continue to update this page throughout the next 60 days as we continue to test the mattress.
Below we have compiled our scoring card for the Sleeping Duck mattress.
The direct to consumer market for bed in the box mattresses has become extremely popular, this makes it increasingly difficult for consumers to make informed decisions, since each company appears to offer very similar mattresses. This is of course where we come in, trying to help empower you, the consumer and allowing you to make a more informed purchasing decision.
At the same price range as the Sleeping Duck mattress, we have the following:
The Sleeping Duck Mattress Review
What’s it made from
The Sleeping Duck mattress is what is known to be a hybrid mattress which includes multiple layers of memory foam, latex and a supporting base of pocket springs. As mentioned earlier, the Sleeping Duck also comes with a removable cover which also allows you to swap the foam layers between medium and firm.
- Top Layer (Latex) – 1.9 cm of latex which is designed to help circulate air and regulate sleeping temperatures.
- Second Layer (Memory Foam – an initial 1.9cm layer of memory foam is glued to the bottom of the latex layer (as seen in the photo below) and this layer helps mould and conform to the users body whilst providing pressure relief.
- Third Layer (HD Foam) – a 6.4cm layer of high-density foam is added to assist in pressure relief and help support the users weight, it is also used as the middle layer between the pocket springs and the top layers of latex and memory foam.
- Bottom Layer (pocket springs) – the base layer of this mattress is a 21.6cm layer of pocket springs (pocket coils) which provide a fantastic, stable foundation for the mattress and compression for the user.
The mattress cover
The Sleeping Duck mattress cover is made from a bamboo top layer and polyester side panels, designed to allow for maximum breathability whilst also being soft and silky to the touch.
Hand’s on review
Next we are going to run through my personal review of the Sleeping Duck mattress.

Pain Relief & Support
Sleeping Position Ratings, Sinkage Test & Edge Support
Before we get into this, it’s important to highlight how I sleep as this will of course dictate my thoughts on sleeping positions – I begin the night by sleeping on my stomach (as unhealthy as it is, I can’t get to sleep any other way). Once I am sleeping I then begin sleeping on my side or my back (mostly my side) for the rest of the night.
First off, let’s begin with the sinkage test results (I am 6ft / 1.8m tall and I weigh approximately 80kg / 176lbs)
