The Kip Set mattress is innovative as the team owns the entire manufacturing and build process. This is different than many other mattresses that source their manufacturing with local shops that are contracted for their business. The Kip Set mattress gets good marks on spinal support without being too firm.

This Kip Set double bed mattress is not too soft and not too firm, just right for me! (I'm 75 kg) Minimal partner disturbance compared to the spring mattress. Couldn't smell any terrible chemical scent before and after fitting 100% bamboo covers for pillows & mattress.When you wake up you will find that your mattress have moulded around the natural contours of your body.It will feel unusual when coming from spring mattresses, so keep it a little longer so your body can adjust to it.View More Reviews
The mattress has definitely helped with my sore back ! The mattress is very comfortable and doesn't move too much when my partner moves around. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
After purchasing KIP SET for our new home it sat in the garage in its box for three weeks while our renovations were finalised. The day came when we got to move in, un-box our KIP SET and put our worries at bay. The last comment I made to my husband when we went to sleep was fingers crossed we have a good night sleep.... and that we did!!! The bed was amazingly comfortable, and hubby was stoked at the fact each time I tossed and turned or climbed in and out of bed to get baby settled he didn't feel a thing!! we love our KIP SET soooo much. Update: 2months on....Our investment in the KIPSET has been the best yet...! I have had three other nights on different mattresses over the last two months & boy oh boy do you notice the difference!! I honestly feel that when we are next on holidays I will have to pack our mattress because where ever we go it will be inferior to our KIPSET
Already tried 3 other popular brand mattresses in the box. Kip Set is the best mattress so far. Still considering if it's the most suitable match for my adjustable massage bed frame, due to its light weight. Affordable, reasonably prices mattress, for the high quality of materials used. Good support, perfectly moulds around the body's pressure points. Extremely comfortable bed to sleep on or just relax and watch tv. Happy to recommend to anyone seeking a softer feel mattress.
It is a little daunting buying a mattress online given you can't physically feel it. I was intrigued by the new era of startup mattress companies selling their products through channels such as Instagram. Whilst there are a few around, I chose to go with Kip Set as it was from Forty Winks Sleepmaker - long time mattress experts. They have the history and knowledge & delivered a great product! The mattress is extremely comfortable. At first a little firm but over time you get used to it. I'm glad I didn't pay twice as much for a spring mattress. It's so easy to get carried away in what the companies say you need, when really all you need is this mattress.
I love it! It is soo comfortable. Honestly the best mattress ever! My old mattress was 3 times the amount of my kipset and can not compare at all! I also love my pillow too.
I have to say that I love my new mattress.I love that I can have two different feels to the bed. I find the mattress incredibly comfortable and I look forward to going to bed these days and I hate getting out (the exact opposite to how I have been for the past two years).I find the mattress molds beautifully to my body,not too hard and not too soft. My Mattress arrived within three days so that was fantastic,the box that it come in was totally destroyed though, with gaping holes it looked a mess,thank goodness the mattress was wrapped tight in plastic and still o.k. I did not receive any form of warranty with the Mattress however I am aware that it should have one. The king size mattress is also slightly smaller all round compared to my A.H Beard king size mattress however I love the Opulay mattress so much that I am sure I will cope. All in all a wonderful supportive mattress that I would highly recommend.View More Reviews
Wow absolutely blown away by this mattress! Its everything I wanted and more! I love how you can change the firmness of the mattress too! Thank you so much! Love it!
We have had our Opulay mattress for over a week now. After many years and many mattesses - innerspring, air cell, foam - the Opulay has been so comfortable that my husband, who suffers pain from two back injuries, was finally able to say, "This is a good mattress. At least it doesn't poke and prod the pain, keeping me awake all night." Well done and thank you Team Opulay!
Wasn't sure what to expect but I'm super happy. It's extremely comfortable. Feels like I'm laying on a cloud.
Very happy with our new mattress. Comfortable and excellent service from Opulay. Answered all my questions thoughtfully and acurately. Thanks!
Sceptical at first yes, I wanted to see the mattress and try it, but I must admit I get embarrassed trying mattresses at the store. Spoke to Drew who couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. I thought I had nothing to lose to try it out for a time and see how it goes. The mattress arrived within 2 days and was extremely simple to unfold. I was going to buy 2 single beds, which of course meant complete new linen etc., as my husband wants a firm base and I can only sleep on a soft base. The Opulay mattress solved the problem and it was easy to turn one side over. We have only been sleeping on it for 1 week but at the moment my husband is not waking with a back ache and I am not waking up at all times during the night. Early days, but I'm sure it is the answer.
the matress is amazing! I loved it! I have tried the soft side the first few weeks, and it wont affect my partner if I came to back late, as the matress will only sink in on my side. And now we have flipped to the harder side, and we feel it suits us more! The matress is really good for our body, we feel our muscle got more relaxed since we upgrated to Opulay, we woke up more energetic and feel less muscle pains and sour! It totally worth the investment!
Sleep has been sound since we have had the opulay mattress much better than our previous one.
I have not got used to the mattress yet, i think, the strangeness of the bed itself vs spring feels so alien to me I have good nights and bad nights, but still have back pain overnight and not quite comfortable. Although in saying that i think it is a matter of adjusting, hence why on the fence right now.. too early to tell.. stay tuned...
I am 6 months pregnant and my sleeping habit changes every week, thanks to Opulay mattress I can literally change the feel of my mattress from soft to firm with just a flip.
Wow! Never slept these good.
Way better than my old mattress, I would wake up with lower backpain. The Opulay mattress is very supportive and comfy. Very easy to buy and setup the mattress.
we where looking for mattress but couldn't makeup our mind as my boyfriend likes firm mattress & I like it soft. Thank god we found Opulay mattress, now we both sleep just the way we want and you can barely feel the gap.
Lovely concept and good quality product
Not only is the mattresss comfortable but the whole unboxing experience was amazing
Shipped quickly, the set up was very easy. Took sometime to get use to the mattress as I was switching between soft and firm feel - but finally I got my right fit.
Very simple to change the feel of the mattress
Simply love it. From buying to sleeping on it.
The customer service team at Opulay is amazing answered all the questions. Loving our Opulay mattress so far.
