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 Voila in this match up!

At first, I was skeptical about memory foam. We have been using a pillow top mattress for years, and seldom used anything else. Me and my husband have consequently been suffering from back pain for years, and realized a change was long overdue. When we received the mattress, it was rolled up and vacuum sealed in a box, so my first impression was that it would be too thin to fit our bed. But, after removing the plastic wrap and waiting not even 10 minutes, it expanded tremendously, and was very entertaining for my children. I initially thought that the mattress would be too soft for us, but the bed contains just enough firmness to be comfortable, yet just enough softness to create envy from my family whenever they sit on it (which is very often!). After the first week in years with much less back pains and a full nights sleep, we knew that we'd never look back. This is a mattress that pays for itself, and a purchase that will not be wished away. I highly recommend Cocoon by Sealy. 5 stars all around!View More Reviews
I was a bit skeptical about the new Cocoon mattress. However, my initial impression changed when we started unpacking the mattress. First, it was very easy to unpack and set-up. It's compact and slid out of the box easily and was easy to unroll onto the box spring. It took a minute to find out where to rip the plastic exterior bag but once we did that we were in business. It was much easier to get out of the bag and into place than the previous mattresses; it just isn't as bulky or doesn't seem as heavy as traditional mattresses. The mattress is a bit thinner than our previous mattress but I haven't found that to matter. I don't think it really requires the extra deep sheets to cover it even though that is what we used on it. I prefer a bit of a softer mattress and my husband prefers the opposite. However, I find sometimes with soft mattresses that they are too soft to the point where if you are on the edge of the bed, you feel like the mattress will collapse. In this case, I ordered the soft mattress hoping it would work out and have been very happy with it. The top of the mattress is like memory foam which makes it fit my need for a soft mattress but the under part is firmer which gives the support of a firm mattress and makes the mattress feel seem more stable. I'm not sure how this will last long term but for now it is quite nice. The mattress incredibly comfortable to sleep on and I have found that I can't feel the other person if they roll around in the bed. This isn't always something I have experienced with other mattresses and so have really appreciated that quiet feeling. Overall, this mattress has made for some great sleeping and I would definitely purchase it for other bedrooms in our house.
I'm used to big, bulky mattresses. The Cocoon is much lighter. I used to sleep on a pillow top. The Cocoon is even softer. I feel so cradled in it.
I like the mattress. I feel great in the morning but I prefer more firmer than the current one. Sealy made good mattresses for over decades. The texture and the thickness makes you feel comfortable when you sleep. I would recommend for anyone who's looking to sleep tight at night. If you are super heavy person this mattress is not for you.
The only thing that I would say is that the soft mattress is really a medium. I would have preferred an actual soft mattress, but this one isn't a bad mattress and we are sleeping much better on this new mattress than our old one.
Nice and comfortable- came on time and setup easily
It's pretty nice.
I like the idea of the bed in a box. I was very excited about trying the Sealy Cocoon Mattress. The box was extremely heavy, but it was well packed and easy to set up. The bed is surprisingly soft and comfortable.
I've been sleeping on my new mattress for a week. I purchased a firm mattress and can feel a wonderful difference in my body. I suffer from low back and hip pain. I've woken up each morning pain free. Two thumbs up!! I want to purchase a second one for my daughter so I'm hoping Sealy will offer me a returning customer discount.
WE GOT THE FIRM MATTRESS AND WERE A LITTLE SKEPTICAL BECAUSE IT WAS A LITTLE SOFT ON TOP...BUT WE WERE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED....VERY COMFORTABLE.....WE LOVE IT !
I've been sleeping on my new Cocoon mattress, and I think its been helping me sleep better than I have in a long time! The mattress came in a box and seemed very 'small' at first glance. Once we opened the box up onto our bed, it expanded into a full size mattress within a few minutes. The first night the mattress was way too firm for our liking, but I realize that mattresses (memory foam in general) need to be broken in. After a couple of days of sleeping on the Cocoon, I've been sleeping harder, and with much less movement than I normally do. I also can feel the movement of my sleeping partner significantly less than my previous, non- memory foam mattress. I haven't noticed being particularly cool or warm while sleeping yet, but my husband has mentioned that he felt it was cool for a foam mattress. All of this has definitely helped me sleep very well since I got it!
I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5, because the depth of the mattress is a bit more thin than I prefer. Now my nightstands seem too high! Also, I like to read in bed and it still seems a bit firm to really do that comfortably, but that might change with some more time. Other than that, so far, we like it more than our old mattress!
It was amazing to think a mattress could form from the pad that was mailed to us! As we cut the plastic away the foam raised up to form a bed. That got everyone in the household excited. The concept is great. We are used to sleeping on a regular spring mattress with a thick 3-4 inch foam pad on top. The Cocoon, at first, was hard and took some time to get used to. We have only slept on it for a week and the paperwork that comes with the bed says to give it 100 days. I am starting to like it. The Cocoon seems to form into your badyshape and actually support you. My husband sweats alot during his sleep and usually always has to kick the blackets off during the night, he says that since we have been sleeping on the Cocoon, he is more comfortable tempurature wise. What is also nice is that not being a spring matress it does not move as much when your sleeping partner moves or gets up. My Husband and I have different schedules, so this helps tremendously, so we are both not bothered when the other gets up. This is by no means a luxouriuos mattress, but it is starting to grow on us.
Just love the Mattress. Not disappointed.View More Reviews
It is the first time we buy this type of mattress; so, after do our research we finally decide to go with Voila brand. The plush model was the best decision we ever made.
I like this mattress. Just moved into a studio apartment and needed a mattress under a certain thickness to fit into my murphy bed unit. I grew up on spring beds and don't totally love the feel of an all memory foam bed so the voila medium hybrid fit the bill. For me it was between this and the purple mattress. Visually i love the clean lines, subtle waves of the fabric print and that there isn't much sinkage when I sit on a corner. The first month was hell to sleep on and wondered if I made the wrong decision. I am a side sleeper with mild rheumatoid arthritis, 5'3 and 112 lbs, pretty petite and oddly enough when i would go lay on the bed to sleep it felt as if something were pushing into my hip bones and i would get numbness in my arms. I figured i'd power through the adjustment period bc i had just spent the last few months on an air mattress and was pretty sure my body was out of alignment. It was crazy because sitting on the bed was comfortable but as soon as I laid down it was just too firm. We'll after about a month and daily walking on the bed in my socks, it's notably more comfortable. I honestly wish it was a little softer but I wake up feeling pretty good, no soreness of the bones, still occasionally get some numbness of the arms but other than that I'm refreshed to start the day. Sadly I can not change for the softer version bc it won't fit in my murphy bed. I will say the company has great customer service and were helpful when purchasing.
I first bought the Medium firmness model because my mattress research brought me to the conclusion that heavier sleepers such as myself experience that foam mattresses will tend to feel more softer than lighter sleepers. This, however, was not the case with Voila's medium firm mattress. The support from the high grade foam and coils on these mattresses are so fantastic that the firmness of the top of the mattress REALLY makes an impact. While I had a great sleep experience on the medium model, I felt a slight discomfort on my shoulder when sleeping on my side. So I decided to request a return on my medium model and purchase the plush. Hands down-- the EASIEST customer service experience I've had on a large purchase. Voila customer support was extremely professional, kind and honest. I was so pleased that I decided to go with Voila as the mattress company to do business with. And let me say, getting the plush model was the best decision I ever made. It is the PERFECT bed for anyone. Soft yet extremely supportive. The plush model has changed my life. I can sleep in complete comfort not just because of the level of comfort but as an Arizonan, the heat circulation features of this mattress are unmatched.
I Adore my Voila mattress. As I have gotten older and acquired a few aches and pains, my 6 year old 'firm' mattress was waking me up due to pressure points when I slept in my preferred side position, even with a 2'' thick memory foam topper. After doing some research on a good mattress review site, I found that lighter weight sleepers (even my 140 pounds qualified) don't sink in very deep, and can benefit from a softer mattress, as long as it is supportive. I visited a mattress store and trailed their (very expensive) version of a soft hybrid mattress and liked it well enough to chance ordering the Voila Queen Soft. I LOVE IT....very relaxing at the end of the day, great bounce, no 'stuck' feeling, and works just fine for 'partnered activities.' I highly recommend this bed.
Just buy it, thank me later.
We recently moved to another state and promised our son a new bed at our new home. We decided on Voila and it was a great choice. He absolutely loves his new mattress. Couldn't have asked for better service, delivery and product. Thanks!
I love this mattress so far! Would give 5 stars but that would be for a product I've had for years that's remained reliable. I love a firm mattress & this doesn't disappoint, if you don't, definitely get the softer one. Unpacking was piece of cake & love I could do it myself.
Wasn't sure what to buy and saw a review of Voila on MattressInsiders. Decided to give their plush version a shot because I am a side sleeper. Overall, no real complaints but I feel like maybe there was something better out there. I sleep through the night most of the time but occassionally toss and turn. Oh well - I hope this helps someone.
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!
