Wright spent two years in research and development, collecting sleep data using Jawbone Up™ sleep tracking software, and threw out twenty-six prototypes before releasing their W1.27 model mattress.
Some key strengths of the Wright mattress include:
- Free white-glove delivery: Wright Bedding will send a two person team to install your new mattress and remove the old one, free of charge.
- Durability: The PCF measurements for the layers of the Wright Bedding mattress are slightly denser than average, which suggest this mattress will last a long time.
Potential drawbacks of the Wright mattress include:

About the Wright Mattress
Wright Mattress Specifications
The Wright mattress is 11 inches thick and comprised of 4 layers of foam, encased in a removable and machine-washable cover. Each layer is described here:
- The cover: a quilted blend of cotton and polyester, thinner on the sides to allow for greater airflow and breathability.
- The top layer: 1.5 inches of open-cell 3Below gel-infused memory foam meant to provide cooling and a sharp contour and deep sink. PCF = 4.0, 10 ILD.
- The second layer: 2 inches of polymer infused ZeroG memory foam meant to create additional contour and cushion the sleeper from the first layer of sink. PCF = 3.0, 18 ILD.
- The third layer: 1.5 inches of polymer infused ZeroG memory foam meant to provide support and transition between the comfort upper layers and the dense bottom layer. PCF = 5.0, 20 ILD.
- The bottom layer: 6 inches of base foam meant to provide deep compression support. PCF = 1.8, 30 ID.
All layers of the Wright Bedding mattress are Certi-PUR certified.
Where it’s Made
The Wright bed is manufactured in the USA, in the state of Georgia.
Buying Logistics + Where to Buy
Wright Bedding is mainly sold online at their site: https://www.wrightbedding.com but also has a showroom in downtown New York City, located at 188 Lafayette Street. Consumers report an excellent experience, the ability to speak directly with the Wright founder, and zero sales pressure.
You can also set up a private viewing, by appointment only, at The Future Perfect in Los Angeles by calling 323-202-2025.
Sleep Trial + Refunds
Wright Bedding offers a 120 night sleep trial. If you’re not satisfied within 120 nights, they will pick up the mattress for recycling and issue a full refund. There is no cost for return shipping.
Delivery + Shipping Policy
Wright Bedding offers two delivery methods, both of which are free.
The primary method includes complimentary “white-glove” delivery. A two-person installation team from Wright Bedding will set up the new bed and remove the old mattress for no charge. Shipping and set up will take between 4-9 days.
For faster shipping, customers can choose to have their mattress delivered by UPS. It will arrive compressed in a 21” x 21” x 40” box 2-7 business days after the order is placed. Customers will need to handle and unpack the box themselves.
Wright mattresses come with a 15 year warranty, which cover any physical changes to the mattress that impact its performance. While Wright doesn’t specify what this includes, generally this covers foam splitting and indentations.
Wright Bedding comes free of additional fees or service line items.
Mattress Performance + Support + Firmness
The Wright mattress is a medium-firm mattress coming in around 6.5 on the firmness scale. The top 1.5 inch layer will show significant sinkage and hug the contours of the body, and the second layer provides a good deal of support and firmness. This should provide comfort and pressure relief, and keep the spine in alignment. The layers increase in stiffness and firmness until the bottom layer, which is the most firm. Like most other memory foam mattresses, there is very little bounce. However, the top layer was created to respond quickly, so the sleeper should not feel “stuck” in the mattress.
Longevity + Durability
Compared to other memory foam mattresses, the PCF measurements for the Wright beds layers are slightly stronger than average, which suggests a higher degree of durability. This mattress should last a long time.
The Wright mattress recovers quickly during bounce tests and shows limited degrees of motion transfer, making it an excellent choice for couples. Edge sleepers should know that the Wright mattress shows significant sink around the edges, as do most memory foam mattresses. Customers report excellent pressure relief from the Wright bed, sinking quickly into the first layer but being well supported by the transition layers.
Customers report fast decompression coupled with standard off-gassing smells that most memory foam mattresses express. The smell should dissipate in 24 hours.
Given that the Wright bed is a memory foam mattress and therefore constructed with minimal motion transfer and bounce, customers with an eye towards intimacy may find a latex, innerspring, or hybrid model more accommodating.
The Wright mattress would be an excellent choice for side sleepers, due to the significant sink. This is not a firm mattress – stomach sleepers and heavy sleepers will probably need a bit more support. Despite the differences between the Wright bed and traditional memory foam, and the inclusion of gel particles meant to absorb heat, this bed will still sleep hotter than a latex or innerspring model.
