The Emma Original is very comfortable.
It is soft without compromising on support and stability.
Using the Sleep Hero firmness scale, we’ve rated the mattress as a 4 out of 10.
What does sleeping on the Emma feel like?
If we had to sum up the experience of sleeping on the Emma mattress in one word, that would be soft. This is due to the two upper comfort layers.
As stated, the Arigoell and memory foam layers adapt well to the body and are known for their ability to relieve pressure.
Because the Emma Original is a soft mattress, it is a particularly good choice for people who prefer to sleep on their side.
This is because the heavier parts of the body, like the shoulders and pelvis, can easily sink into the mattress.
However, since the mattress also offers stability, the body's lighter parts are still provided with adequate support.
The combination of sinkage and support enables the spine of the sleep to stay correctly aligned.
This makes the Emma Original an ideal mattress for individuals seeking to decrease back pain or those in need of an orthopaedic mattress.
Not ideal for heavier builds
However, it is important to note that the Emma Original mattress might be too soft if you weigh over 90 kg or sleep solely on your back or stomach.
This is because these sleeping positions require good hip support, which may not be provided by the Emma mattress, especially if you are of heavier weight.
Therefore, if you fall into the above categories, it would be a good idea to leverage the risk-free test period to decide better whether the mattress is a good fit for you.

The sinkage depths of individuals on the mattress were also measured.
By gauging the depth of sinkage of an individual on the mattress, it becomes possible to estimate how supportive the bed would be for various sleepers.
The results of the experiment were as follows:
||Person A (1.65 m / 62 kg)
||Person B (1.79 m / 70 kg)
||Person C (1.95 m / 85 kg)
|Sleeping on the back
|Sleeping on the side
|Sleeping on the stomach
|Sitting on the edge
|Standing in the middle
These sinkage depths are optimal.
In the case of both light- and medium-weight test sleepers, there was no sinkage in either extreme (too much or too little).
Hence, the Emma mattress is perfect for them.
However, the sinkage depths for our heavier test sleeper were on the heavier side.
This suggests that the mattress might be too soft for heavier-weight sleepers.
That said, the sleeper still received adequate support, and the spine remained optimally aligned.
Also, note that sinkage depths for sitting on the edge are relatively high.
This means the Emma doesn’t offer excellent edge support and may be too soft if you like to sit on the edge of your mattress.
