Cocoon by Sealy is Sealy's answer to the disruptive mattress in a box brands that have been so popular over the past two years. They offer two mattresses, both a variety of memory foams, a 'Chill' version and a regular version with a soft and a firm version. Through their massive brand awareness and mattress industry connections, it is no doubt that some of the disrupters are concerned about their mattress in a box entry.
Voila is a newcomer, looking to disrupt the market with a hybrid mattress that puts an eye on coils and also on layers. Overall, they have 11 layers to their bed, which is way different than others common three - four layer varieties. Do all those layers translate to better comfort? What do the consumers have to say?
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Cocoon in this match up!

Everyone wants to get to the bottom of which mattresses are best rated, but it isn't easy from just browsing online. These mattresses are rated very well by customers based on our analysis. Although you may not experience the same excitement after buying, having a good reputation from customers is a great beginning for reading on further!
These mattresses offer good support. Customers report that their spines are aligned and hips and shoulders are cradled.
These mattresses also do well with edge support, which is the evenness of support along the sides. For those that like to roll close to the edge of the mattress, these mattresses should do a good job holding you up without sagging or contouring too much.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
Resting a bowling ball on your mattress is a good indicator of firmness, and it is also useful in seeing if the firmness changes in certain places in the mattress. Therefore, it can show if there is even resistance or if some areas sag. Based on this, these mattresses will do well in their even support of the spine.
In terms of the durability, these mattresses do a good job versus competitors. Finding a durable mattress can mean years of comfy nights. while one that quickly falters can mean immediate discomfort. For most sleepers, these mattresses will last between 7 - 12 years on average, which is good for contemporary mattresses. Folks may experience slight decreases in durability who are of heavier builds or spend more than average in bed.
These mattresses are provided great scores from sleepers versus others, which means when we did a statistical analysis of the review data from customers across the net, we found this brand was reviewed very well. This gives a good beginning point for seeing if this brand will work for your body -- read on for more specifics.
These mattresses are more supportive than others, which means they help keep the back aligned in conjunction with their firmness level. That said, there are a few issues reported by a few customers, so make sure to check out whether your purchase pick is right for your sleeping position and body type.
Overall, these mattresses are reported as having good edge support, which means most don't feel like they will fall off the mattress when rolling close to the edge of the mattress.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
In density and bowling ball tests that measure even support throughout the mattress, there is good even support throughout. That said, some reviewers describe rare support issues, so make sure it speaks to you before buying.
Longevity is one of the most important things to mattress buyers, but because of the large amount of new companies making mattresses, it can be difficult for shoppers to find out. That said, with all of the data on tests, customer feedback, and materials, we've been able to estimate. These mattresses provide above average durability for the everyday sleeper. Some folks that are heavier may find these mattresses don't last as long.
Just what I expected but I might need to exchange it. I bought the soft mattress. It feels like foam on a rather firm, supportive mattress. Sounds ideal for a side sleeper, but I'm waking up a bit sore in lower back. Honestly, it could be my medicine dose. I have to do a good trial with better pillows, regular dose of my medicine to be scientific. Arrived a day early. I managed to unpack it on my own. I'm a short woman with back pain and I didn't hurt myself unpacking it. It would be super easy for two people. I'm very happy i can exchange it if i need to.View More Reviews
The process to buy the mattress was so painless. It was so much better than stepping foot into a mattress store - I will never do that again. My husband threw his back out and we desperately needed this new one. So I called customer service and told them what happened. They were SO helpful and actually over-nighted the mattress to us so my husband could recuperate faster. I am very grateful. One thing to note - even though we have the "soft" version, it is much firmer than what I was expecting. It's not one of those foam mattresses than can be difficult to move around in. This definitely has a good amount of firmness to it. Even my husband, who loves a good, firm mattress, says this is great for him!
For the first time in months I wake up rested and NO back pain.
Still enjoying a great nights sleep on this mattress! Seamless process from selection to delivery to set up.
Delivery was timely, package was easy to open, mattress came to life immediately. Our mattress is firm and comfortable. We love it!
The morning after sleeping on it, I got out of bed and starting saying, "My back hurts." As soon as I said it though, I realized it wasn't hurting! I was just so used to complaining about my back hurting that I did it automatically without even thinking. It keeps me very warm a night!
I've only had my mattress for about 2 weeks now but so far I'm happy with it and am definitely sleeping better. It really is more firm than you would expect out of a "soft" mattress but it's actually what I prefer. I feel like I have more support that way. My best friend has a Leesa and my Cocoon is definitely a bit firmer than hers. I've bought foam toppers in the past and they never held up over time. I am hoping this foam mattress doesn't let me down. I have to say it is a really good deal compared to other bed in a box companies out there and the reputable company name sold it for me. Of course the great reviews helped too ;-) I plan on updated my review in the future to let you know how it holds up over time. Good luck, friends!
We love, love our new Cocoon mattress and foundation. I don't want to get out of bed! I'm now ordering them for our son's room and our guest room, too! Great customer service when I reached out with questions.
What an awesome mattress. The only thing I would suggest re: the cocoon would be to unpackage/wrap it on the floor completely before putting it on your bed frame. You have to take it off to get the last wrap off anyway.... Money well spent, very worth it, we will see how it holds up in the next few months before we come back to update our comments.
I just wish it is firmer. However, the piece is not firm enough for me so I have to return it.
This bed is very firm. From my personal opinion, I would give this bed a 7.5 out of 10 on a firmness scale. This bed causes me to wake up with back and neck pain, that I did not get from my older SPRING mattress. As for the "chill" cover, it does make the mattress feel a slight bit cooler to the touch, but after 15-20 minutes of laying in bed, you can kiss that coolness goodbye!
Thanks for the great bed.
The Chill Soft mattress was a great purchase, as it has given me a better nights sleep during the day, as I work nights. I have had problems with other mattresses, due to back aches from work, but the Chill Soft has helped ease my back pain. The Chill Soft does seem to sleep cooler than my old mattress, though not as much cooler as I wish it would be.
I bought 2 twin for my kids and they loved it! Firmness is just perfect. We currently have a Serta bed that we paid over 2k, some spots in the bed are now too soft and the edge support is really bad. Tried to claim for warranty but it seems like they're doing everything they can to not cover it. NO MORE SERTA FOR US!
The mattress is very comfortable and keeps my hot sleeping husband cool as advertised. It is on the firm side of firm but otherwise we are completely happy with our purchase. The delivery and set up were super easy, too.
I am a very sensitive sleeper, but once you lay on this bed you go off to wonderland! Usually, I get up several times during the night but with this bed, I'm dreaming and or sleeping until morning. The con is sometimes my ears or shoulders are little sore from being in such deep sleep but your body gets used to it and adjusts. Now I can't sleep on anything else. What am I going to do when I travel now?
Mattress arrived on time and was easy to open and set up. It is very comfortable both for me and my husband.
Wish I would of bought one sooner . Haven't slept this good in years!
So easy to purchase. So easy to unbox and unpack. So easy to place on a boxspring. So easy to sleep on from the first night. My Cocoon is the best bed purchase I've made.
Great mattress and I feel the wooden slat in the foundation.
First night was kind of rough but I think my body was adjusting to the new bed. After a few days of breaking it in I found that I'm more refreshed and limber with no more back pains. I would recommend this bed to anybody who's in the market looking for one.
I love everything about this bed super easy to put together and the mattress is so comfortable. I got the chill king mattress best decision, I couldn't be happier!
This is my third cocoon mattress. I initially purchased one for myself a year and half ago, I love it so much that I bought my mom a cocoon classic and a cocoon chill firm for a dear friend who was having back issues. They both love it and their aches and pains are gone. To top it all, unparalleled customer service.
I purchased this bed back in March 2017. It's now November. I love this bed now but I didn't love it when I first purchased it. I felt it was as too hard even though it was the soft version. However, my husband really liked it so instead of returning it, I bought a memory foam topper. That helped immensely. I now get amazing sleeps. I would definitely recommend this bed. The price was good as well as I had a coupon for $100 off.
The mattress cool at night. It is also very comfortable and great on my back.
Great support. Keeps me cool and comfortable. Best purchase I made last year. My only criticism is that the edges of the mattress are strangely too soft, softer than the rest of my firm mattress. It is too easy to slide off the edge when one sits to put on shoes. Otherwise, best mattress ever!
We recently got the cocoon soft mattress for our daughter. It is hands down the most comfortable mattress in the house and is great during story time.
Love how cool my mattress stays and its amazingly comfortable that i don't want to get up in the mornings.
Our new bed is so comfy! I have been happy with it since day 1. Ordering was so easy and so was set up. I will definitely buy another one for our guest bed.
I like the bed, but unfortunately it smells pretty bad hopefully the smell does away. I slept on it the first night and the next morning I felt dizzy. maybe it was the weather outside or something, but it could of been the flumes from the bed. I would suggest to anyone who buys this that they put it in a room after it has expanded and let it air out for a week. who knows maybe two weeks. I ordered a firm mattress, but maybe I should of ordered a intermediate. I don't get into it and say aww that is so comfortable.
It was so easy to get this delivered to my new apartment and I didn't have to wait for delivery men. The mattress is comfy and afforable.
It took a bit to get used to the difference in a foam mattress compared to a typical spring mattress. After the initial few nights of getting used it, I can't wait to crawl into bed at night!
We always purchase a firm mattress and this mattress is the firm we desire! The customer service agents are very helpful in answering any questions before purchase. It shipped quickly and was easy to set up. Thank you Cocoon for giving us a good night's sleep!
The way it's made and the ease of ordering and receiving it. The thickness is great, easy to get in and out for an elderly person.
I Love that I feel like I'm getting a full body hug while I sleep! Not too firm, not too soft, a perfect snuggle!! Love it!
I bought this mattress to put in my spare bedroom. Since purchase, I've had a few guests stay over and tell me how great the mattress is and that they were surprised I sprung for one of those -pedic mattresses that cost so much money! I tried the mattress out for myself one weekend, and decided to order a King for my bedroom. I usually toss and turn at night, but woke up in the same fetal position I laid down in the night before.
a comfortable mattress but soft feels too soft to my standard. Would be better if there is another choice between soft and firm!
The delivery process, unfolding and making the perfect bed to fall asleep in....I love this mattress and really pleased with the right amount of firmness for the "firm". Not too hard, and definitely not too soft--just RIGHT! Thank you Cocoon for making my nights better :)
Comfy. Sheets don't stay on well. Best sleep I have had in a while. Don't have to have my back popped back into place every day anymore.
Bought this bed after doing extensive research on different brands. The Cocoon bed came out a winner, far ahead of the others. My Cocoon bed was delivered promptly and set up a super easy. This is hands down the best bed I have ever slept on. I love this bed!
Voila has really created a premium style mattress that's well worth the price. Instead of going to a local store to find a mattress with coils and memory foam we found Voila. We selected the plush style and are very happy with the softness and durability of the bed. We will be looking at Voila again when we need to replace another bed at our home.View More Reviews
My wife and I have couldn't be happier with our Voila mattress purchase! Delivery was timely and easy to track. The mattress was a lot of fun to open, we couldn't get the six year old to stop giggling at the insta-inflate! The mattress has a great look, with the patterned top and the wavy sides. But most importantly, it's super comfortable! We are both on the larger side, and the medium is perfect. I also love that it has great edge support for sitting, unlike many other box brand mattresses. Soft but firm, cool but cozy, Voila! Our new favorite mattress!
This mattress offers both firm support and the perfect amount of cushioning on top. We got the plush mattress and we love it. I was worried that it might not be firm enough but it offers great support! I love having a little extra memory foam on top, it makes it easier on aching joints. The mattress is also really pretty with a quilted white top. We are super happy with out Voila mattress!
I ordered my Voila mattress on a Saturday evening and it arrived on Wednesday morning! The mattress arrived early on the 3rd business day just as promised. Fast! The online order process was really simple and the website is easy to navigate. I originally thought about ordering the medium firm mattress, but my husband talked me into the plush. We are very pleased with it! The mattress is still very firm and sturdy, but with just the right amount of cushioning on top. (Great for my stiff joints). When we put the mattress on our bed I was pleased with how pretty is it! The top has a white quilted pattern that looks really nice.We are super happy with our Voila mattress! Lisa L Utah
I tried Casper, and another brand that also got high marks in a review. Voila is the one I kept (medium firmness) because it was the really comfortable. I purchased about 6 months ago, and still genuinely happy with it. It's soft on the top layer, and really gets rid of pressure points. On the Casper my arms were falling asleep and getting numb. The other one I tried, was way too soft and misaligned my spine. Even thought it was so "soft", I still had pressure points on it somehow. I felt sunk into a poor posture as I slept, and rolled into the center - it was horrible. The Voila, while soft and pressure relieving on the top layer, has great support. It's really a perfect balance. When I purchased, Voila was kind new to the game. I don't know if they've got more recognition since then, but I'm writing this for some reason at 2am because I just really like this mattress lol. The only down side, I really wish there was a way to change to covers on it. I have a mattress protector, but I'd still like to change the cover once a year. Maybe my impression, but it just looks yellowish compared to bright white sheets. But, perhaps not that white to begin with I can't remember. Overall pretty minor issue. And yea, it's heavy. I solo carried it up 2 flights of stairs. You probably would like 2-3 people for the job though. And yea, it is so comfortable. Part of the reason I'm writing this, is so Voila stays alive and if I ever need replacing or adding another mattress I know where to go.
We've had this bed a few weeks and so far it has been great. We set it up in our living room so we could be sure it was going to be the right fit and left our Sleep Number bed in place. One night we switched back to the Sleep Number bed and my husband said "NO MORE!!" We both woke up hurting. My only complaint is the company who delivered it. They would not bring it up my drive way and my husband had to go and pick it up in his truck. The man would not even come help him get it in the house! So much for good customer service from R and L Carriers in Birmingham, AL!
My Voila Mattress is the BEST purchase my husband and I have ever made. Not only is their customer service incredible- they made sure our mattress arrived at the house that we were moving to (across the country) the exact same day we moved in- but also the mattress is the best I've ever slept on. The Voila mattress is not just a chunk of foam like all other bed-in-a-box mattresses out there. The Voila mattress has springs that give support, while still offering you a choice in firmness (plush, medium, or firm). Honestly, I will never sleep on another mattress ever again. It is really that amazing!
For a while now, I have been having trouble getting comfortable in my bed--lots of tossing and turning, leg aches, back soreness, waking up frequently during the night, etc. A neighbor of mine recently purchased a Voila mattress and suggested that I take a look at the Voila products. My husband and I did some research on beds and decided to purchase the Plush Voila mattress. We slept on our new mattress last night, and it was really comfortable for both of us. The difference was amazing. I had thought, "Oh, my old mattress isn't that bad," but our new Voila mattress proved me wrong. We are so happy we purchased our Voila bed, and we highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a new mattress.
Love everything about Voila!! The mattress, the delivery/packaging, their customer service, the company, the people, the price point, firmness options…!
I bought this mattress after seeing a Sleepopolis review on it. I was originally looking at getting a Tempur-Flex Supreme, which they claimed this was very similar to. Well, it wasn't; this mattress is firmer than the Tempur, but I'm hoping the foam softens some over time. I will say that even though it's firmer than I originally wanted, it only took 2 weeks to get used to the change. The new foam smell went away after 2 days. Before I would wake up 2-4 times in the middle of the night and wake up with a sore back in the morning. Now I sleep like a rock. My girlfriend and I don't wake each other up anymore when either of us moves. I've been recommending it to all my friends because you can get the mattress and a decent platform bed frame all for under $1000. Shipping was fast; I ordered Monday and received it Thursday. I would recommend that you put on a sheet before setting anything else on it because the cover likes to grab fabric.
I ordered the 'soft' mattress and it is VERY firm. After extensive research and foam density comparisons I bought this mattress because it had a better warranty than the in store mattress that we liked with nearly the same specs. However, upon arrival this mattress is MUCH firmer than both the site and the reviews had led me to believe. I weigh 180 lbs and only get 1/4-1/2" compression when lying down which doesn't even fully conform to the small of my back. The mattress firmness is about a 6-7/10 compared to everything else I have tried, not the '3' that the mattress reviews tell you. The quality of the mattress seems nice and there have been no hassles with the ordering process which is why I gave it 3 stars, but after the required 30 day trial I will have to return mine.
No joke Voila is the best mattress I have EVER slept on!!! I had another competitor's boxed mattress before my Voila and there is no comparison. I travel a lot for work too and I can't wait to get back home to slumber upon my own personal cloud! Thank you Voila!!!!!
This has been the easiest mattress buying experience ever. No pushy salesman or going into a store to lie on a bunch of different mattresses. It arrived at the door one day, then we unrolled it, opened it up and done. I love that it is a hybrid of memory foam, latex, and pocket coils. We replaced my daughter's old saggy memory foam only mattress and she has loved it.
I have researched extensively on the kind of mattress we were ready to purchase. My decision was a hybrid . Glad I waited for this newer innovative option-because its the best of both worlds. Business on the bottom-Party on the top!. I consulted customer service because I wasn't sure the "soft " option would be supportive enough for my large husband, but it has proven to be great. Smooth delivery, easy set up, and a very well made product that is affordable for a high quality mattress. So happy to have a fantastic choice for a good night sleep for both of us! (P.S. The soft is on the firm side) We really got a winner!!
Purchasing a new mattress is one that I take seriously. I mean, you spend about half of your life -- a quarter for overachievers 🙂 --- in your bed. After researching and getting referrals from friends we settled on Voila. Wow!! We made the right decision. First of all, we didn't have to borrow a truck to get the thing to our house. It showed up in a box at our doorstep. We quickly carried it upstairs and popped open the bag. We were laying on our mattress within a short time. The best part is that we have slept like babies ever since we got it. Go buy one now!
Voila is an awesome brand with a great message. The mattress is one of a kind and you will feel the different the second you lay down on it. They are unlike any other hybrid mattress on the market and have been designed for many different levels of comfort. Look no further than Voila for you next mattress purchase!
We built a new home last year and one of the last things we thought about were mattresses. After finally spending all that money on a nice new home I found myself disgusted at what I now had to spend for nice mattresses. Not sure where along the way in life mattresses started costing your first born child, but they did! I was fortunate enough to hear about Voila Mattress from a friend and I was very skeptical about the quality when I was told they would come in a box, that the price was 2-3 times LESS than the quality mattresses I was looking at, and frankly I just did not believe it. I am so glad I took the gamble though. We got 3 of them and we love them. These mattresses are awesome. My kids can jump all over them, they can sleep like babies (they are not babies now) and I have nothing but positive things to say about them. I am not a sleep scientist so I cannot get into all the nitty gritty details about that, but can simply tell you I love these things.
Buying a mattress that comes to your door in a box is the way to go! Voila’s quality rivals the top-end store brands, the customer experience is awesome and they stand behind their product. I wish I found them sooner, but glad I did! So long, sleep number.
Hands down the best in the mattress biz.. I'd rate the mattress we purchased 6 stars out of 5 if it were possible. Also, the people at Voila don't come any better, love this place.
