Are you looking for an affordable all-foam mattress? You’ve come to the right place. The Juno is a great value, 8-inch bed-in-a-box offering from Canadian manufacturer, GoodMorning.com. As an online-only retailer with no showroom or retail store overheads, it’s able to pass these savings on to customers with incredibly competitive prices.
Unfortunately, the Juno is only available for delivery within Canada, so U.S. shoppers searching for a cheap deal should take a look at our other picks of budget-friendly mattresses.
Will the Juno’s memory foam, motion isolation, and great price sway you? Read on to find out.
Who We Recommend The Juno For:
- Budget shoppers – Are you in need of a no-frills mattress at a competitive price? Even though it’s a budget-friendly option, the Juno mattress offers benefits like versatile firmness, motion isolation, and cooling technology. This means you get plenty of value with your purchase.
- Side sleepers – The level of pressure relief provided by the Juno’s memory foam should suit light to average-weight side sleepers looking for a good balance of cushioning and support.
- Canadian shoppers – The Juno mattress is proudly made in Canada, using locally-sourced foam, which is a bonus if shopping locally is important to you. This mattress is only available for delivery within Canada.
Who We Don’t Recommend The Juno For:
- Heavier people – Heavier sleepers over 230 pounds likely won’t get enough support from this mattress.
- Stomach sleepers – While lightweight stomach sleepers who only spend part of the night on their front may be fine, anyone over 130 pounds will likely experience unwanted sinkage in the hip area, causing misalignment of the spine. A firmer mattress is advised.
- Exceptionally hot sleepers – The Juno features gel-infused open-cell foam, offering cooling and airflow, and we found it to be temperature neutral. However, particularly sweaty sleepers and those in warm climates may be better off looking at other cooling mattresses on the market.
First Impressions: Firmness & Feel
Firmness Scale: 6/10
Please remember that firmness is a subjective characteristic and your shape will dictate how you experience a bed. A heavier person whose weight can more easily push through softer comfort and support layers may experience a bed as softer than a lightweight person. The way you are shaped could also play a role here. Consider your weight, shape, and size when evaluating firmness scores.
Firmness is an important factor when making a decision on a new mattress, as it affects how your body is cushioned and supported. We rate mattress firmness on a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 denoting most soft and 10 most firm.
We consider the Juno to be a 6 out of 10, which is a medium firmness The soft memory foam layer is balanced out by the firm foam support layer, creating that versatile mid-range firmness. Light to average-weight side sleepers might appreciate the fact that it’s a little more plush, as this should provide slightly more cushioning around pressure points like the hips and shoulders.
How Does It Feel?
Press your hand into the Juno and you’ll feel the stretch-knit, poly-blend cover, which has a somewhat cozy feel. Beneath this is the comfort layer, which gives the classic sinkage that memory foam is known for. Lighter-weight sleepers may enjoy the plush feel of this mattress, as it’s on the softer side of medium-firm, but heavier people may find themselves sinking too far into the harder support layer.
What We Like About the Juno
- Classic memory foam feel – Do you love the body-hugging feel of memory foam rather than the bounce of innerspring coils? This mattress offers some body contouring from the top layer.
- Pressure relief – Being a slighter softer mattress, the Juno provides a good amount of cushioning to ease pressure on those sensitive areas.
- Price – Low price doesn’t have to mean low quality, and we think the Juno offers multiple benefits at an affordable cost.
Our Juno Complaints
- Edge support – We found ourselves sinking around the edge of this mattress, as it doesn’t have a reinforced perimeter. This means you likely won’t be able to use the entire surface area of the bed comfortably.
- Not as tall as other mattresses – With its 8-inch profile, the Juno isn’t as tall as many of its competitors. Taller individuals may require a thicker mattress, depending on the height of their bed base.
- Lack of support – While light to average-weight side and back sleepers should feel comfortably supported, stomach sleepers and heavier people may find the comfort layer too soft to achieve proper spine alignment.
Testing the Juno Mattress: How it Performed
We perform multiple tests during mattress reviews to help us determine the type of sleeper that might benefit most from the product. We test for important things like motion transfer, cooling, edge support, bounce, pressure relief, and support, as these are all key factors in helping you decide whether a mattress is the one for you. Additionally, we analyze the bed’s performance in different sleep positions.
Sleeping Positions for Different Body Types
The Juno has an official weight limit of 250 pounds per person, which is 500 pounds total. Based on this and our testing, we don’t recommend this mattress for heavier people, especially heavyweight couples.
|Weight||Side Sleepers||Back Sleepers||Stomach Sleepers
|Lightweight Sleepers (-130 lbs)||★★★||★★☆||★☆☆|
|Average-Weight Sleepers (130-230 lbs)||★★★||★★☆||☆☆☆|
|Heavyweight Sleepers (+230 lbs)||☆☆☆||☆☆☆||☆☆☆|
- Lightweight Sleepers – Side sleepers under 130 pounds will likely experience a good balance of pressure relief and spinal support from this medium-firm mattress.
- Average-Weight Sleepers – Average-weight side sleepers should find the memory foam layer provides comfortable pressure relief, with just enough support from the high-density foam beneath.
- Heavyweight Sleepers – This mattress isn’t supportive enough for heavier side sleepers, who will likely experience unwanted sinkage in the hip and shoulder regions. Instead, getting a firmer mattress is advised.
- Lightweight Sleepers – We think this is a good option for lightweight back sleepers, who don’t need as much support as heavier folk. Lighter sleepers should sink in a little, while still maintaining a neutral spine.
- Average-Weight Sleepers – Average-weight back sleepers should find their weight evenly distributed, sinking into the memory foam but still feeling well supported.
- Heavyweight Sleepers – We don’t recommend this mattress for heavyweight back sleepers, who will likely sink too far into the memory foam and not get the required support from the poly foam layer. Try a firmer mattress.
- Lightweight Sleepers – Exceptionally lightweight front sleepers may feel supported enough, but we found the Juno doesn’t offer that much support in the hip area, so a firmer mattress may be a better option.
- Average-Weight Sleepers – This mattress probably won’t provide enough support to keep the hips from sinking, which will misalign the spine, causing aches and pains.
- Heavyweight Sleepers – We don’t recommend this mattress for front sleepers weighing over 230 pounds, who will find their hips sinking too far into the foam.
Pressure Relief & Pain
Pressure relief is important in a mattress because you don’t want it digging into sensitive areas like the hips, lower back and shoulders, which can leave you feeling sore in the morning. The Juno’s memory foam layer performed well for pressure relief when lying on our backs, and though there was some light pressure buildup on the side of the body, we don’t think this will be too much bother for light to average-weight folks, who should still feel comfortable.
Back Pain – This mattress may be a good option for preventing back pain in most light to average-weight back sleepers, as we found only a small amount of pressure build-up when lying on our backs. However, stomach sleepers will likely find their hips sinking too deeply, which can cause lower back pain.
Hip Pain – Light to average-weight back and side sleepers should experience a good amount of pressure relief, reducing any pain in the hip area. While we didn’t find excess pressure on the hips when lying on our stomachs, we still felt them sinking in too deeply, which isn’t healthy for the spine.
Shoulder Pain – This mattress performed well for pressure relief in the shoulder area when sleeping on our backs, so it could be good for relieving shoulder pain in light to average-weight back sleepers. There was a little buildup in pressure while testing on our side but not enough to cause concern.
The Juno isn’t supportive enough for heavyweight sleepers, who will feel themselves sinking too deeply into the foam layers. We found it offered a good mix of support and pressure relief for light to average-weight side and back sleepers though.
When it comes to edge support, the Juno was slightly lacking; with no reinforced perimeter, we found ourselves sinking around the edge of the bed. However, this should only be a problem for couples who need to use the whole surface area of the bed or those with mobility issues who need a little more support when getting in and out of bed.
Motion transfer is an important consideration when sharing your bed with a partner or a pet since the last thing you want when fast asleep is to be woken by someone else moving around. The key is to choose a mattress with good motion isolation, which means it will absorb their movements, so as not to disturb you.
We tested the Juno for tossing and turning, getting in and out of bed, and jumping on the bed, and the results were average. While high levels of motion were detected right after movement, these were quickly absorbed, so it may still be a good option for restless couples on a budget.
Temperature Regulation / Cooling
A mattress' ability to keep you cool is important if you’re a sweaty sleeper, live in a warm climate, or share your bed with a partner. Memory foam mattresses are notorious for overheating, as the foam tends to trap body heat. The Juno’s memory foam layer is infused with cooling gel, to help regulate body temperature, and the open-cell structure of the foam is designed to allow for some airflow.
A Cool+ Cover is optional, costing 79 Canadian dollars. This cover is made with cooling yarn fibers, to feel cool to the touch and help release body heat. We found this mattress to be temperature neutral so it should be fine for most people, but exceptionally hot sleepers may benefit from a more cooling mattress.
Performance for Couples
There are several factors to take in consideration for couples when shopping for a new mattress, including versatility, cooling, and motion transfer. This mattress is medium-firm, and we think it would suit light to average-weight side and back sleepers, so if one or either of you doesn’t fall into that category, this may not be the mattress for you.
While the mattress does feature cooling properties, it’s not as cooling as other models, so if you overheat when sharing a bed, you may sleep too warm on this one. Motion isolation was average, so while it’s not the best, it could still be a good option for people with restless partners who are shopping on a budget.
This mattress has a top layer of gel-infused memory foam that helps to dissipate heat, encouraging airflow with its open-cell design. A Cool+ Cover can be added for an extra 79 Canadian dollars, which is infused with cooling yarn fibers to further regulate body temperature.
Adjustable Base Compatible
This mattress is compatible with non-medical adjustable bases.
Made in Canada
The Juno mattress is manufactured in Canada using Canadian foams.
Construction: What’s Inside Juno?
The Juno is an 8-inch all-foam mattress that consists of two layers of foam. With just two layers in its construction, the Juno has a more simple layout than other competitors but still ensures that the sleeper has access to both softer pressure relief and firmer support.
At the top of this bed you will find a stretch-knit polyester and viscose blend cover, but if you or your partner have trouble with overheating during the night, this cover can be upgraded to a Cool+ Cover for an additional 79 Canadian dollars. This advanced cooling cover is designed to feel cool to the touch and is made with heat-dissipating material. As a result, it help regulate body temperature and promote an even cooler sleep space for more comfortable slumber.
- The comfort layer is the initial foam unit, lying just beneath the cover. This top layer consists of 2 inches of gel memory foam. Like most memory foam, this material offers an element of body contouring and pressure relief for achy joints and muscles. The addition of gel, however, keeps the memory foam from becoming too warm, which is often a drawback of this material.
- The support layer sits below the comfort layer and at a the base of the mattress. This layer is made from 6 inches of high-density poly foam, and it’s designed to keep the body lifted while also working to reduce motion transfer.
Unboxing & Off-Gassing
The Juno arrives compressed in a box. This mattress weighs from 30 pounds for the Twin to 66 pounds for the Split King. Once unboxed, the mattress will take up to 24 hours to fully expand, but it can be slept on after 30 minutes.
As with all bed-in-a-box mattresses, you’ll experience some unpleasant off-gassing, which is harmless and the result of chemicals escaping after being vacuum-packed. Keep the room ventilated, and this smell should disappear within 24 hours.
- Eco-Friendly Certifications – The foams in this bed are CertiPUR-US® certified. CertiPUR-US® is a third-party program that ensures the foams meet rigorous health and safety standards. This means they don’t contain harmful substances like ozone depleters, PBDEs, heavy metals, formaldehyde, and phthalates. They should also have low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.
Coupons, Trials, Warranties, and Shipping
- Shipping – Shipping is free to the majority of Canadian households. However, shoppers in remote areas may have to pay a shipping fee. The Juno mattress does not ship to the U.S.
- White Glove Delivery – Juno does not offer white glove delivery, so you will have to set up your new mattress yourself, and arrange disposal of your old one.
- Trial – You have 120 nights to decide if the Juno mattress is the one for you.
- Warranty – This mattress comes with a 15-year warranty.
- Return Policy – You can initiate a return within your trial after sleeping on the Juno for a minimum of 30 nights. Your mattress will be picked up for free by a charity partner or recycling partner (depending on local laws). Once it’s been collected, you’ll receive a full refund. However, the mattress must be clean and undamaged.

The Juno is an incredibly good value mattress that would suit those looking for a budget-friendly, no-frills memory foam option. It would be ideal for a guest room, kid’s room or camper van.
Light to average-weight side sleepers will likely find themselves sinking into the memory foam at a good level, while still feeling supported by the firmer foam layer beneath. This will create good spine alignment. Heavyweight side sleepers should steer clear, as you’ll feel your hips and shoulders sinking too deep, causing unnecessary pressure points.
Back sleepers weighing up to 230 pounds should feel a good amount of cushioning from this mattress while also feeling supported, though average-weight back sleepers may find their hips sinking a little too far. This bed isn’t supportive enough for heavier back sleepers, who would do well searching for a firmer option to keep their hips raised.
We didn’t find this mattress supportive enough for most stomach sleepers, who require a lot of support in the hip area to keep their spine in healthy alignment. Lightweight front sleepers may be okay, although if you spend the entire night on your stomach, you could find yourself waking up with aches and pains.
People who change positions in the night need a little bounce from their mattress, to make transitions effortless. The Juno is an all-foam model, so lacks that responsiveness. However, it suits light to average-weight side and back sleepers, so if you fall in that camp and don’t change positions too much while sleeping, this mattress may suffice.
The Juno has good motion isolation, so you shouldn’t be disturbed much by a restless partner. There’s also a lack of good edge support, which will affect how far you can spread out on the mattress. Its medium-firm rating should suit light to average-weight couples, if both of you are either back or side sleepers. This wouldn’t suit heavier couples.
We don’t recommend the Juno for those weighing over 230 pounds due to its lack of support for this weight group. Heavier sleepers will likely find their pressure points sinking too deeply into the mattress, resulting in a misaligned spine. Instead, they should seek out mattresses specially made for larger frames for optimal support.
This mattress could be a great option for people weighing under 130 pounds who sleep on their side or back, as it offers a good combination of cushioning and support. Lighter stomach sleepers may be okay, especially if you only spend part of the night on your front. Overall, though, we don’t think this mattress offers enough support for the hip area while sleeping in that position.
Average Weight Sleepers
Side and back sleepers weighing between 130-230 pounds should feel comfortable on the Juno, as it may provide the right balance of pressure relief and spinal support. However, stomach sleepers should look for a mattress that provides more support in the hip area, which they will likely find sinking into the memory layer.
We gave the Juno 3 out of 5 for overall value because it’s not as versatile as some of its competitors. Stomach sleepers and heavier sleepers will find it doesn’t offer enough support, and hot sleepers will likely require a mattress with enhanced cooling qualities, like a hybrid.
If you’re a light to average-weight side or back sleeper who doesn’t sleep too hot, this could be the mattress for you, especially if you want a low-cost option. It’s lower prices also makes it a great buy for a guest room, and the 6 out of 10 firmness is pretty versatile.
Stomach sleepers won’t get on with the Juno, as it lacks enough support to keep the hips raised, although it could be fine for lightweight people. Heavier sleepers should definitely look elsewhere, as they won’t feel supported in regions like the hips, lower back and shoulders, which is essential for healthy spine alignment.
