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.
Overall, I am very impressed with this mattress. 1) As per most of these styles of mattresses, the zero disturbance from your partner has been great and both my wife and I are sleeping better. 2) The biggest concern I had was sleeping hot...a lot of reviews for other brands mention this as a negative and having used a memory foam topper this was a non negotiable. I slept terribly on the memory foam topper but this mattress is very neutral to sleep on. Not exactly cool but definitely not overly warm. 3) Firmness is higher than expected but not uncomfortably so. As a side sleeper, I notice any pressure. This mattress is at a nice balance of firm and comfortable. Overall, I rate this mattress highly and only factor will be longevity but at this point in time its a bit soon.View More Reviews
Still getting used to it, but so far so good. Great company to deal with. Received it in country area of South Australia within 2days.
Great mattress staight out of the box! But we felt it was just a little bit too firm for us after the first week, so we just put a 8mm visco memory foam topper on it and it is now absolutely the best night sleep ever! Thank you Sommuto!
What a great bed. My husband and I are so happy with the new bed. It’s firm but the memory foam holds and supports the body.
I have had this mattress for a couple of weeks and we are very happy with it. My husband and I no longer disturb each other getting out of bed in the middle of the night. I/we recommend this mattress to anybody who is thinking of buying one. Cheers
Sleeping well finally thanks great mattress
We had some troubles with our delivery but the sommuto staff were always more than happy to help. Excellent mattress and pillows, we are enjoying peaceful nights sleep.
This is my second Sommuto mattress, as I wanted to upgrade to a king size. My original queen is now being used in the spare room. Absolutely love this mattress
Absolutely love this mattress, great support and the edges don’t collapse like other foam brands.
Buying Sommuto was my husband’s idea and I was a little worried about this different style of mattress, but from the very first night I have loved it. I feel fully supported (I have always liked a harder mattress) but the nestled in feeling is beautiful. We don’t feel each other move around and our shoulders and hips (side sleepers) don’t hurt anymore. Best decision; good one, hubby!
No bouncy. No more back pain. Very good
A good nights sleep
It feels like sleeping on a cloud.
Best pillow I've ever used.
We have slept on our Sooma (Med-firm) mattress for 2 weeks now. It has taken a bit to get used to as we have had a soft inner spring for many years. We found the ‘cosiness’ Level not great so have added a mattress topper which has made a big difference and now sleeping well. One big positive is there is almost no partner movement disturbance which is a huge improvement!
Personally I don't enjoy these pillows. They aren't high enough for me. We got them free when we bought our mattress and are using them on the guest bed.
The pillows are the right "consistency", but I feel that they are a little "low" for my likeing. I have gone back to a firmer latex pillow that is a little higher for my head angle. I do use the memory foam pillows when I need something "different" .
OK, so my mattress was delivered in Jan 2017- I have to say that this was one of the best buys I've made. I still love getting into bed, and find it as comfortable as the day it was delivered- maybe more-so. The sleeping temperature (having been through a summer and winter) is fabulous. It warms up nicely in winter, and summer is not an issue. It far surpasses that luxurious feeling of a top hotel mattress, and is a pleasure. Cant recommend it enough, and happy to do so personally. So really the question is not am I happy with it, but with the benefit of hindsight would I change my purchase or do it differently... when this finally wears out, there is no question that I would replace with the same again.
Great service,prompt delivery and excellent packaging.Very easy to 'install'. Extremely comfortable and l will recommend,5 stars! Thank you Sommuto.
My partner and I sleep separately due to the way I sleep (thrasher!) as any movement i made work him up. I'd bought toppers for my bed, etc etc trying to make my mattress comfortable. Since getting this mattress, i have slept like a baby and that cozy feeling in the morning when I wake up is like nothing i've experienced! Also, for those who like to sit up and read in bed, your bum sinks nicely into the mattress and supports you while you read... was NOT expecting that. It's comfortable, cozy, everything... i've even been waking up with my pillows thrown off the bed and the mattress alone being so perfectly comfortable. Don't hesitate, get one. You'll love it!
Thank you for the new mattress. One week on and I haven't slept better! Super quick delivery time and easy to set-up. I can no longer feel Bobby the cat jumping on the mattress to awake me from my slumber at 5am. Excellent product.
We took delivery of our King Size Sommuto mattress with some trepidation. It looked so different to our old one. The first two nights did not impress us. It just did not feel "right". We decided to stay with it and give it a longer trial. After about 8 days we were sleeping soundly. We have been sleeping on this mattress every night for the last 7 months. We love it. It has spoilt us for travelling and sleeping on different mattresses. We have recommeded SOMMUTO TO FRIENDS AND RELATIVES. One of our daughters has recently purchased a Sommuto. The company was great to deal with. Ten out of 10 for comfort.
As expected due to a recommendation from a good friend we have had great nights sleeps on our mattress. I have always struggled with sleep and right at the moment this mattress seems to be my answer!
We actually don't have one of these yet but spent a week at a friends house recently and had to ask what the mattress was in their spare room as we loved it so much. We are off travelling now for 12 months but this mattress is the first thing on our list to buy when we settle back down somewhere!
When the mattress arrived I was thinking what is this thin rubbish I purchased and then bam, removed plastic cover and it expanded amazingly. I have had serious sleep issues since my wife passed last year and been relying on medication to help me sleep. Since my new Summoto arrived I am sleeping so much better, it is comfortable and amazingly supportive. I couldn't recommend it any more if I tried, I looked st so many in store mattresses but nothing came close to this and in store mattresses can be 5 times the price. Best thing I have purchased ever!!
We have had our mattress for a while now and we genuinely love it. Both my wife and myself have never slept better. We both were getting some slight lower back pain on our old mattress so knew it was time to change. Have never looked back since this mattress arrived. We have been recommending it to many of our friends.
I have an airbnb and needed to replace our queen size mattress that we were getting some negative feedback on. We replaced it with the sommuto mattress. I tried the first few nights to check the comfort and it was heaps better than I was expecting for the price. We've had it in our airbnb for about three weeks now and so far feedback has been great. Mostly people have been really positive about how comfortable it is. Not too hard but also firm enough to support your back. We'll definitely be looking at sommuto when we have to replace our kids beds.
My partner and I are both light sleepers and every time one of us moved around during the night on our old spring mattress, one of us always woke up. Tossing and turning trying to get back to sleep was a nightmare so we decided to ditch the springs and buy a king Sommuto purely because it was 100% foam with no springs. The first night we both slept on it neither of us woke up until the sun came through the window! The mattress is absolutely amazing and the memory foam is only one of the great features. If you have a worn, spring mattress, it's time to upgrade, you will not be disappointed!
Got the mattress. Opened it and pretty much went to sleep straight away. Have slept well every night since so you've got a customer for life here!
Unboxing and placement was easy, it was lighter than we had imagined. The bed is so comfortable, giving us a great nights sleep, no aches and pains in the hips so far.
We had appreciated a very good solid foam mattress for 25 years which we decided would be our comfortable bed when visiting a friend in the nearby Barossa - SO an excuse for a new mattress & I began my homework! Sommuto stood out over the other 'boxed' mattresses, all with similar guarantees & money back offers. Solid foam had served us well so looking for something in that range (but not Latex, too hot friends told us) - very impressed by the cross section view of layers & all Australian components. So our decision was made - helped by the very friendly service on the phone. Unboxing was fun, especially shared with little neighbours - box not as it looked in video, that was bit confusing but we had help & coped! No odour at all, and it looked SO impressive. As I had hip problems at time of new mattress arrival I took a week to be convinced BUT since physio sorted that problem I have been a VERY, VERY contented Sommuto sleeper & that's six months ago. That's saying something as a Fibromyalgia sufferer for 20 years - need a mattress that is supportive but not uncomfortably firm. I now sleep soundly for at least 8 hours every night, if I haven't asked to be woken earlier - I don't hear our dogs, thunder, noisy neighbours etc! My husband has always been a lighter sleeper but settles more quickly now than he used to, if he's disturbed. Our old dogs LOVE the bed - NOT when I need my sleep!!!! But they happily enjoy the comfort during my husband's Siesta or at many other times during their day! We are ALL agreed that our change to Sommuto has been an excellent decision & GREAT value, in so many ways!
We bought this mattress for our daughter. As per an increasing number of people we were sick and tired of buying mattresses the normal way! We did it recently for ourselves and didn't want to go through the hassle again for our daughters mattress so we looked online! There are a few companies out there and we went with Sommuto even though the price was higher then some. For us that was a sign of a better quality product. Turns out we were right. Our daughter loves it. We will be getting one for our son in the coming months and might even find an excuse to upgrade our mattress soon as well!
I have been sleeping brilliantly since I have had this mattress. I have been looked after brilliantly from the moment I jumped on the site to ask some questions. More then happy to recommend this mattress to everyone I know. It may not suit everyone but it absolutely suits me.
OK, Im not going into the invoking experience, as that is not an important part of this to me. I have been looking to get a new mattress for some time. My partner is quite slight and lying on the old Posturepedic was causing her to wake with aches and pains. I looked at several in store mattresses and basically gave up very frustrated. That was the start of a search for a mattress in a box. I read review after review for what seemed like weeks. I read comparisons with the Koala, the Greywing and the Ecosa. Frankly the name of this one put me off without looking any further- [as a Chinese import] . I called the 3 previously mentioned to ask if they could give me a comparison to a shop stocked mattress so that I could get one idea of what theirs would feel like. After about 3 weeks of waiting I gave up. The phone staff had no answers and putting it bluntly couldn't be bothered. I gave up the search and came back to the Sleeping Duck and Sommuto. As mentioned, I actually thought that the Sommuto was Chinese until I read about ti and found it to be one the most Australian brands possible - right down to the box! With that I contacted them and asked my question. Not only did they listen to my question, but they had an answer. So off we went to H.N and tried the Tempur Cloud series. This was described as "being similar"- so I ordered a King size mattress. Delivery was made after about 10 days. Do not be fooled, this thing is heavy- very heavy. I am on a second floor with a flight of stairs and it was a struggle. Mattress in place and plastic cut it did unroll and start to 'puff up'. Although it seems a few minutes, the thing got thicker for some hours. Incidentally, unrolled, it is easier to move around than in the box. There was very light odour, but nothing like the commercially available ones from shops. First night was a different sleep to our old bed. The Sommuto is firm, but very comfortable. Now having used it for almost a week, I can say the following. It is not the cheapest out there, in fact it is at the upper end of the foam style "mattress in box" scale. The service level from Sommuto is personal and high-- very high. The delivery is a bit longer than a day like some of the others, but in my opinion it is a wait worth while (allow 10 days to Perth). The quality of the item is good and the changeable cover I see as a good thing should it wear and require replacement. Comfort is very good, but please understand, everyone is different and selecting a mattress is very subjective decision. There is no such thing as "one type suits all". If you hear it, you can be sure that the sales person has no clue. For us this mattress has been a great buy. The question should be "Would you do it again?" My answer is yes. With the clarity of hindsight I would buy this again with out regret. My details for confirmation are available upon request.
l have multiple major reconstructions through motorcycle accidents everyone stationary at a red light ? Sleep is difficult until sommutomattress arrived which has doubled my sleep times instantly anyone out there with sleep deprived injuries best advise grab @ sommuto u won't be disappointed in charge l'd scrap da 100 night trial for all those scammers l use to sleep on wooden floor boards high density foam waterbeds air etc: u pay 4 what u get this matteres so is worth more & then some 10 year warranty says it all l have 2 bamboo waterproof covers on a wooden slats frame for airflow can't go wrong 3 construction phases excellent result choice quality durable the best thing l have ever bought l highly recommend this product
Delivery was fast, very easy to unpack, ready to sleep on straight away. Most comfortable mattress ever owned and for this style of mattress doesn't make you feel hot, definitely would recommend to friends and family.
