I got a real kick ordering this mattress as the shipping date can be confusing. For those of us in the US we are accustomed to writing down our dates as month/day/year. In the UK, where Eve is based they write it as day/month/year. So I looked at the shipping date and it said 8/3/17. At first I was like, no I’m not going to wait until August to test this out! The rest of the world displays the time in ascending order as days are shorter than months, but we in the US have to do somethings differently!
I remembered a story that my uncle used to tell about his first job. He was an oceanographer and had an assignment to Antarctica. To get there he booked a ride with a Japanese fishing vessel that was headed there. The date of arrival was listed at like 12/5/82 and so in November he thought it would be a good idea to jump aboard for a few weeks of travel. As the Japanese also use the same convention as the UK ( month/day/year), he needed to wait until May 12th (5/12/82 in the US system) to get there. The side benefit is that he became fluent in Japanese during his six month adventure as the only English speaking passenger.
We made our purchase. So as long as we don’t have the calendar issues my uncle had, we should receive the Eve mattress in about a week. Update: it took only 8 days!

8 day delivery, straight to our door. Not bad at all! You can see that the time to deliver a mattress in a box can be competitive with shipping one fully formed from a warehouse.

Eve has done some really nice things. They got high marks for their shipping and their packaging. As the box has really creative and welcoming language to go with the unboxing process. It was fun enough that we decided to shoot a video just to talk about boxes. We weren’t trying to pick a favorite out of the boxes that we had on hand, but it’s probably pretty clear from the video that we liked it.
It is a full foam mattress so it’s pretty sturdy, but on if you are walking on the edge of it there will be some pretty big compression. You won’t compress it all the way to the ground at my size, but it is noticeable. You can sit on the edge of the bed, and it’s not like you are going to slide off of it. So it didn’t score as high in the edge support category as some of the other mattresses, especially a hybrid or coil mattress.
The cover is fun, the yellow areas have a mesh feeling that is designed to help with airflow. Where we found this useful is that it gives you a nice grip when you are moving it around. Underneath the cover you will find three layers of foam. The memory foam on the top is about 2″. In the middle is another layer of foam that Eve calls an active response layer of about 1″. Then the support of the mattress all comes from the base layer which is about 6.5″ when fully decompressed. The total height of the mattress is just about 10″.
We enjoyed the Eve and it was a huge upgrade from the mattress we have had for the last three years. While we were testing it there wasn’t one day that either of us complained about back issues, or spent the night tossing and turning trying to find a comfortable spot. This was in sharp contrast to the mattress that kicked off this quest to find a better mattress. It provides a nice value at the $749 price point for a king, and $649 for a queen.
After reviewing the prices of all of the other mattresses we had tested, we increased the value rating for EVE.
