Construction (Materials & Quality)

The WinkBed EcoCloud is a 13-inch mattress that ships roll-compressed inside of a box. This bed unrolls and is easy to install on any box spring, slatted platform, or adjustable base.

The cover is furnished with the brands Organic cotton cover which features a 3-in-1 comfort technology. This tech is topped with a 1-inch layer of 100% organic cotton that covers New Zealand Wool batting. This combination of materials not only provides plush comfort, but it also helps to wick away moisture and heat, as well as provides a clean and healthy sleeping surface.

There are 2 additional layers of materials in this mattress that sit beneath the cover:

layers of ecocloud winkbed
  • The first layer is 4 inches of 7-Zone Talalay Latex comfort foam. This has been sectioned off to foster increased support in the lumbar/hips and is softer in the shoulders and legs. The material is split into two separate 2-inch materials, with a proprietary 2-inch textured latex on top.
  • The second layer uses 8 inches of naturally breathable AirSpring Support Coils. This is constructed with recycled steel springs that help promote airflow and support.
  • The perimeter is reinforced with ExtraEdge™ Anit-Sag Support coils. This design helps to make the sides more stable so it feels supportive all the way around.

Firmness (Support & Feel)

Here at the Sleep Advisor, we score beds on a 1 to 10 scale with 1 being the softest. The EcoCloud only comes in one firmness option, a Medium, and it scores between a 5 and 6.

This score makes this bed a versatile fit that can work well for many types of sleepers. The plush top allows sleepers to sink into a gentle cradle that is fostered by the soft latex. Beneath this are the coils that provide the bulk of the support.

The Talalay works with the coils to provide exceptional bounce and responsiveness that combination sleepers can make plenty of use of. This feature can help them transition between sleeping positions.

Back sleepers will likely enjoy how this bed is neither too firm nor too soft, as Goldilocks would say, “it is just right.” The product sports a versatile design that many back sleepers will find appealing. It was made to cradle the small of their back and give their hips and shoulders just the right amount of support.

Side sleepers can enjoy how soft the plush pillowtop comfort layer is and can find even more pressure relief in areas like the shoulders and hips as they transition into the latex. The coils help provide necessary support and should give many customers the sleep they have been looking for.

Most Stomach sleepers are going to really enjoy how this bed feels. While it may be softer than some folks like, this is countered by the zoned latex which helps to provide the proper support in the hips.

Overall, most people are going to find that they rest well nestled comfortably on top of this bed. With all mattresses, there is always an exception. This bed supports up to weights of 900 lbs or 450 per side, if you exceed this consideration the WinkBed Plus would be a great option to look into.

Motion Transfer

Motion isolation is nice to have if you are shopping for two. Sharing a bed has its perks but many co-sleepers know that having a mattress with a partner can be frustrating at times. Motion isolation helps prevent those nighttime moments where one partner gets up to use the restroom and afterward stumbles back into bed, shaking the mattress like a magnitude 8 earthquake.

Customers should not have to fret over motion transfer when sleeping on the EcoCloud. This product comes equipped with pocket coils that help anchor motion to the spot, helped along by the latex foam on top. This combination of materials should work well to keep sleeper’s resting well.

Edge Support

A lot of times, before a customer even lays on their brand new bed, the first thing they do is sit on the edge to take off their shoes. This simple act, though not always a game-changer, can be the customer’s first impression and a bed with weak edges can leave a bad one.

Some bed-in-a-box companies do not add edge reinforcement because they need their products to be able to compress into a box. WinkBed does not follow this method, though shipped in a box, the EcoCloud comes equipped with reinforced coils along the perimeter, helping ensure that your first experience is a good one.

Other Considerations

  • Trial Period – This product includes a 120-Night risk-free trial that allows shoppers to try it out in their home and if they do enjoy it, they can send it back for a full refund.

Luxurious all-natural sleep is hard to come by, especially at a price point as ideal as this. Shoppers can spend hundreds to thousands of dollars for a bed of a similar design at big box stores and mattress retailers. WinkBed is of the opinion that quality sleep should come at a fair and reasonable price.

After reading this review, if you think the EcoCloud is not for you, keep in mind that WinkBed offers several other options. They have their newly released MemoryLux along with their traditional WinkBed and WinkBed plus. So whatever your situation may be, it is likely that WinkBed has a solution just waiting for you to give it a try.
