A good night’s sleep is the key to a good day ahead. And it all starts with the right mattress… for you. If you wake up feeling unrested and sore, your current mattress isn’t doing its job. Guess it’s time to get a new mattress – and with today’s range of mattresses on the market, which is the right one for you?
Experts say that we need a new mattress at least every 10 years. And a lot has changed in the past decade, especially when it comes to buying a mattress. You don’t have to head to a retail store for your purchase – the Internet can outfit your bed with a mattress that fits your every need. And if you’re looking for luxury at a reasonable price, eLuxury should be on your list of mattress manufacturers to look at.
I had the chance to try out eLuxury’s 10-Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress, and in this review, I’m going to delve into the features this mattress offers, including:
- Cooling Capability
- Edge Support
- Layer construction
- And more!

Air flow is important, and I like how the cotton cover on the eLuxury 10-Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress is ultra-breathable. That means it keeps moisture at bay so you get the most of the cooling properties from the gel memory foam. Breaking up the sea of white are spirals of blue and green, giving the cover a modern look and feel.
The cover zips off, so you can remove and wash as needed.
Two Layers of the eLuxury 10-Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress
The eLuxury 10-Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress has two layers, with a total measurement of 10-inches. Let’s take a close look at each of the layers to get a better idea of how they come together to provide support and comfort.
The 10 inch Gel Memory Foam mattress gets down to basics: a solid design with a memory foam comfort layer. This thick layer offers the sinking feel you’d get with classic memory foam, which also contours to your body.

On the top of this mattress is the comfort layer, comprising of 3 inches of 3.0 lb density gel memory foam. As soon as you lay down, you’ll sink in and notice some pressure relief. Contouring to your body, the gel memory foam forms to your unique curves. Although memory foam can trap body heat, this layer has been infused with gel, which helps to regulate temperature and cool the mattress.
Giving the mattress its shape and durability, the base consists of 7 inches of 1.8 lb high density poly foam. Providing compression support, the firm layer also offers the sleeper a quicker response to pressure.
Firmness and Sinkage Expectations
When pressing my hand into the mattress, it first comes into contact with the top layer of gel memory foam, and it contours with the weight of my hand. As more pressure is added, the further down into the mattress is reached, and there’s a transition into the base layer. Depending on your size and sleeping position, you’ll find that there’s a range of difference in firmness opinions.

To give you a better idea of the firmness, I took a look at the indentation load deflections (ILD) of each layer. To give you a better understanding, a rating of 12 is very soft, while a 50 is very firm. On the top and bottom layer of this eLuxury mattress, there’s an ILD of 12. This makes the mattress very soft, based on the ILD rating system.
The base of this mattress makes up 70% of the total thickness, but even so, both layers have the same ILD rating. With a total of 10 inches, I sank about 5.5 inches into the mattress, and was able to connect with the base layer of foam. With this amount of sinkage, I would rate this mattress on the firmer side of medium.
A mattress of this firmness level is a good option for people of heavier weight – because it takes more pressure to hit the base layer, those with higher weights will feel more supported. It’s also a good choice for people who sleep on their side, as the mattress avoids pressure points from forming in areas such as the shoulders and hips.
Motion Transfer Reduction
If you sleep with a partner, there’s a good chance you’ve experienced disturbances at some point, which is important to consider motion isolation. With the inclusion of memory foam, this mattress is able to isolate motion to the point of impact.
When I dropped a 20-pound hand weight next to another of equal weight on the mattress, there was minimal transfer. Because I share my bed with two active dogs, this is an important factor for me, and I couldn’t feel anything when they decided to move positions in the middle of the night.
There’s always going to be some degree of transfer, but the Eluxury 10-Inch performed well in this test. And I’m not surprised – all-foam products are the popular choice with restless sleepers.
Heat Transfer Capability
I always run hot, which is why getting a cool night’s sleep is so important. Thanks to this mattress’s top layer of gel memory foam, I found that I was cooler at night. With other mattresses, I often don’t need a top over and I wake up with a considerable amount of sweat. Not so with the Eluxury 10-inch – in the few weeks I’ve been sleeping on it, I haven’t been sweating and I’ve been using my quilted comforter to cover up. If hot sleeping bothers you, I would recommend this mattress for sweaty sleepers.
Because the Eluxury 10-Inch comes at a pretty price point, you still want to make sure it’s not cheaply built. You expect to be sleeping on a mattress for years to come, so let’s take a look at if this mattress stands up to the durability test.
This mattress is made with Premium eLux gel memory foam, so you’re not only getting cooling, but also resiliency. As well, Eluxury offers a 10-year warranty – that means as long as you take care of your mattress (a mattress protector comes in handy for this purpose), you can rest assured that it’s going to last you at least a decade. Considering the cost of the queen model is $679.99, you’re getting a quality sleep for about $68 a year.
While the cover is washable, this only includes the top cover. For maximum durability, wash with cool or warm water on delicate setting followed by hang drying or tumble drying on low heat. It’s best to wash your Eluxury top cover by itself to avoid color transfer from other laundry items.
I know you’re on the edge of your bed wondering how the Eluxury 10-inch mattress measures up in terms of edge support. It’s an important factor that not many people think of when purchasing a mattress. But think about it – if you sleep with someone, you’re sometimes pushed to the edge of the bed. Or you’re sitting on the edge of your bed when putting on your shoes or just getting up in the morning. If you have mobility issues, it can be difficult to get in and out of bed when edge support is low.
Products made entirely of foam often lack edge support. But I was pleasantly surprised with how well this mattress was able to sustain my weight, especially when it was directly applied to the corner of the mattress.
I think the edge support found on the Eluxury 10-inch mattress is above average and that sleepers will be pleased with its performance.
Maintenance, Protection, Care and Warranty
For an all-foam mattress, I was really surprised at the level of support you get with the 10-inch mattress. The gel layer offers a great balance of contour and bounce.
As with most mattresses, it can take a little bit of time to break it in. Eluxury recommends allowing a period of 30 days to determine if you’re happy with the mattress.
Eluxury 10-Inch Mattress Reviews and Feedback
With the firmness level, I think this mattress is a good fit for those who carry a little extra weight. It’s capable of holding 800 pounds combined weight. As well, all foams are CertiPur Certified, which means they’re toxin-free and meet the highest health standards in the industry.
Overall, I was very pleased with the quality, and my experience with the Eluxury mattress was a positive one. Because this review is based on my personal opinion, let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons customers have shared online:
- Very comfortable
- Helps with back, neck, shoulder and hip pain
- Great customer service
- Fast shipping
- Low price
- Sleeps cool
- Motion transfer can be more noticeable with some couples
- Off gassing smell takes 3-7 days to dissipate
Who We Recommend the Eluxury Mattress For
The 10-inch Gel Memory Foam mattress can be a great fit for many different needs and preferences, and I definitely think you should consider purchasing one for yourself if:

- You have back pain issues
- You carry extra weight
- You sleep hot
- You want to a lower-priced mattress that still offers support and comfort
