Summary: Endy Mattress

The Endy mattress is well known in Canada, where it's a bestseller among bed-in-a-box models. This is a 10" all-foam mattress that comes in one version (we found it to be a Medium in terms of softness). United States residents should note that Endy does not ship to the USA; this review is for the benefit of our Canadian readers.

In our evaluations, we found the Endy mattress to have a Medium softness level, with very good support and spinal alignment for back sleepers in particular.

Motion isolation was a highlight in our testing, with both a 16-lb. bowling ball as well as our 200-lb. tester. Part of that owes to this bed’s quick-responding foam, with almost none of that slow-responding/melting feeling you would get with a memory foam bed. That makes the Endy a good choice for those who are sensitive to a partner’s movements.

One of the most notable characteristics of the Endy mattress is its low price. Even so, this is a no-frills mattress without any particular innovation or features intended to improve edge support or temperature control. But in our testing, it performed quite well across the board, and for many, this may be all the mattress they need.

Among our concerns: We did wonder whether heavier individuals (200+ lbs.) might sink through the comfort layers of the Endy mattress or bottom out on the firmer support layer, especially in side and stomach sleeping positions. And we had concerns about very light *less than 150 lbs.) side sleepers who might not compress the foam enough to allow should to sink enough into the bed to create ideal spinal alignment.  

If you like to sit on the edge of the bed, or tend to lie right on the edge, edge support with the Endy surprised us -- for an all-foam mattress, it was very good. Our tester felt stable and not at all like he was slipping or sliding off.

Endy includes free shipping to your door within all Canadian provinces, with a surcharge to the Territories. Endy also has a large number of showrooms located in major cities. If you'd like to try one before you buy, the showrooms offer you that convenience, and the prices are the same, whether you buy in a store or online.

GoodBed's Take – Who is the Best Match for an Endy Mattress?

BEST if you:

  • Are primarily a back sleeper
  • Are a lighter stomach sleeper
  • Don't want to feel a partner's movements
  • Prioritize budget over innovation
  • Want the option of trying in a store before buying

NOT IDEAL if you:

  • Prefer a slow, "melting into the bed" feeling
  • Are a stomach sleeper, especially heavier
  • Prefer a mattress with some bounce
  • Want the best adjustable-frame performance

Back Support (by Sleeper Type)

No mattress will provide equally good spinal alignment (a.k.a., back support) for every sleeper. Here's what to expect in terms of spinal alignment on this mattress – by sleeper weight and sleep position.

Weight Range Back Sleepers Side Sleepers Stomach Sleepers
Lighter <150 lb 9 7 9
Average 150 to 200 lb 9 8 8
Above Average 200 to 250 lb 9 8 7
Heavier >250 lb 8 7 6

 

Pressure Relief (by Sleeper Type)

The pressure relief offered by a mattress – especially important for side sleepers – will vary based on a sleeper's weight and body shape. Here's how we size up the pressure relief capabilities of this mattress.

Weight Range Typical Curves Extra Curvy
Lighter <150 lb 8 6
Average 150 to 200 lb 8 7
Above Average 200 to 250 lb 7 6

Materials & Construction

Overall, we classify the Endy mattress as an "All Foam" construction type. It is 10″ thick and comprised of 3 layers (listed below from top to bottom):
  • 2" "Endy Foam" comfort layer
  • 3" polyurethane transition foam
  • 5" polyurethane foam support layer

The Endy mattress is made of three foam layers stacked and glued together. The company calls the top layer "Endy foam" - it's a man-made proprietary foam that's definitely not a memory foam. 

The top two layers comprise the softer comfort layers, while the support layer below is substantially firmer. Endy does not disclose the density data on the foams, unfortunately. (That is data we can use to estimate longevity.)


 

Cover

The three layers of the Endy mattress are wrapped in a very sturdy feeling knit cover that's both removable and machine-washable. That's an increasingly unusual feature.

 

Comfort & Feel

There are three aspects that make up our assessment of comfort and feel. We call these "preference-based characteristics" because no rating here is better or worse – rather, the attributes that are most desirable to you will be determined solely by your personal preferences. We apply the same classification standards to each mattress so you can more easily compare apples to apples.

Softness ( what’s this )

Keep in mind that what mattress companies call “firm” or “soft” is a purely a preference. All mattresses should be supportive and promote healthy spinal alignment. Whether a mattress is fluffy and squishy (what mattress companies call soft or plush), or less so (what companies call firm), is purely down to your personal needs and preferences.

We classify the Endy mattress as a straight-up Medium in terms of softness overall, right in the middle.

Not sure what softness is best for you? Take our Mattress Match Quiz and find out.

Softness Level
(1=Least Soft, 9=Most Soft)
6 Medium

 

Cushioning Depth ( what’s this )

This refers to how deeply you sink into the mattress or feel cradled or hugged, versus a feeling of floating on top of the bed. We found the Endy mattress again to be in the middle-of-the-road between the two poles, with maybe just a hair towards the shallower end of medium.

Cushioning Depth
(1=Shallowest, 9=Deepest)
5 Medium cushioning

 

Responsiveness ( what’s this )

We use the term "responsiveness" to indicate two aspects of a mattress--memory feel and bounce. Generally, it refers to how quickly a mattress recovers its shape after being compressed. When you press your hand into the mattress, for instance, then remove it, does it take several seconds for the mattress to return to flat, or does it recover immediately?

The Endy mattress does not contain any memory foam, so it really does not have any of that recognizable memory-foam feel, where after compressed, your hand print takes several seconds to disappear (some describe this as a slow, melting into the mattress feeling). Rather, the Endy mattress recovers its shape quickly; not as quickly as an innerspring mattress might do, but definitely a lot faster than what you’d associate with memory foam.

This also translates to bounce, which we test in two ways. When we dropped our 16-lb. bowling ball in the mattress, it bounced a little bit, and when our tester dropped his weight onto the bed, he did not bounce at all. For a foam mattress, the Endy does have a little mid-level bounce, which some couples prefer.

Memory Feel
(1=Least, 9=Most)
2 None
Bounce
(1=Least, 9=Most)
5 Small amount of bounce

Back Support & Pressure Relief

The two things that you should always be sure to get from your mattress are spinal alignment (commonly thought of as "back support") and pressure relief. Unfortunately, no mattress will deliver these two things equally well for all sleepers. In particular, spinal alignment and pressure relief capabilities will vary across sleepers with different weights, body shapes, and sleep positions. To help you determine how this mattress will perform for you, we break down our spinal alignment and pressure relief assessments by sleeper type.

In our evaluations, the Endy mattresses afforded very good support for back sleepers, and would be suitable for a broad range and sizes of people.

The Endy was also good in our view for lighter weight stomach sleepers -- maybe less than about 200 lbs. For heavier people, we questioned whether hips might sink into the mattress’s soft top layers too deeply, bottoming out on the firmer support layer.

We thought it might be find for certain, but not all, side sleepers. Our 200 lb. tester felt that his shoulders didn’t sink quite deeply enough into the mattress as he would have liked, and he felt the mattress’s support layer sort of pushing back up.  In the end, we thought the Endy could be fine for those who occasionally sleep on their sides, especially those of average weight.

 

Spinal Alignment

The key to good back support is maintaining proper spinal alignment while you sleep. This means that the mattress should hold your spine in roughly the same position it's in when you're standing. The ability of a given mattress to do this will generally depend on your weight, sleep position, and body shape.

Here is how we break down the spinal alignment of the Endy mattress:

Weight Range Back Sleepers Side Sleepers Stomach Sleepers
Lighter <150 lb 9 7 9
Average 150 to 200 lb 9 8 8
Above Average 200 to 250 lb 9 8 7
Heavier >250 lb 8 7 6

 

Back Sleepers:

While our tester was on his back, he noted that his hips sank just deeply enough to create a perfectly neutral spine, while he felt the mattress did a nice job reaching up to support his lumbar curve. We feel that sleepers of a wide weight range would have a similar experience in this position on the Endy mattress.

Side Sleepers:

Side sleeping was not ideal for our tester. While he didn’t experience any pain or pressure, his shoulders did not sink as deeply as he would have liked. While the Endy will probably be just fine for those who only sleep occasionally on their sides, we especially question how supported heavier and also lighter might be; heavier people might sink through to the firm support layer of the mattress while lighter people might not compress the foam layers much at all.

Stomach Sleepers:

Achieving good spinal alignment for stomach sleepers can often be trickier as the hips can tend to sink down too far with some mattresses, but our tester felt okay in this position, but we did question whether those over 200 lbs. would experience the same support, and suspect that hips might sink far enough to create less than ideal spinal alignment.

 

Pressure Relief

When a mattress pushes back against your body with too much force in a concentrated area, the result can be pain, soreness, loss of circulation, excessive tossing, and other problems. In general, such "pressure points" are of greatest concern for side sleepers, since that's the position in which your body's weight is distributed over the smallest surface area. To find the right mattress for your needs, keep in mind that the pressure-relieving capabilities of any given mattress will vary depending on the sleeper. Factors like your weight and body shape (e.g., broader shoulders and/or hips) will determine how far you sink into the mattress, and the pressure relief offered by that mattress will vary widely at different depths.

Here's how we sized up the pressure relief of the Endy mattress:

Weight Range Typical Curves Extra Curvy
Lighter <150 lb 8 6
Average 150 to 200 lb 8 7
Above Average 200 to 250 lb 7 6
Heavier >250 lb 6 6

 

Overall, we found the pressure relief offered by the Endy mattress to be mainly good, and even very good for lighter people who aren't too curvy.  We did question how this mattress would perform for those who are broad-shouldered or have wider hips and might sink down to hit the firm support layer, possibly creating hot spots.  

Other Features

Beyond the preference-based characteristics of comfort and feel, and the body matching for spinal alignment and pressure relief, a mattress will have a number of other attributes that can make it a better or worse choice for you. We call these "priority-based characteristics" because they are areas in which a mattress can be better or worse, but that will have differing amounts of importance to each sleeper. So, determining how much importance to give to these features will be entirely a matter of your own personal priorities. As always, we apply the same ratings standards to each mattress so you can more easily compare apples to apples.

 

Motion Isolation (what’s this)

With a bowling pin standing upright on the Endy bed, we tested motion isolation by dropping a 16-lb. bowling ball on it, as well as the whole weight of our 200-lb. tester.

In both tests, the pin barely moved at all. For that reason, we felt that this mattress would be an excellent choice for couples who don’t want to feel their partner getting in and out of bed.

Motion Isolation Rating
10 /10 Exceptional

Temperature ( what’s this )

For most people, we do not think the Endy mattress will feel hot. The top two layers appear to be less dense foams, which should have better airflow than denser materials. Also, you don't sink super deeply into the bed, nor does it have a heavily quilted cover. That means more of your body is exposed to air.

If overheating in bed is an issue for you, and you’ve experienced it with other mattresses, other models have features that are specifically intended to address this, but for most we don’t expect heat to be a problem with the Endy bed.

Stays 'Cool' Rating
5 /10 Okay

 

Edge Support ( what’s this )

Foam mattresses aren’t typically very supportive along the very edge of the mattress—important if you like to sit on the edge of the bed, or if you tend to sleep along the edge. But the Endy mattress surprised us.

When laying on the very edge of the mattress, our tester felt stable, and not at all like he was leaning or sliding off.

Edge Support Rating
8 /10 Very good

 

Ease of Repositioning ( what’s this )

If you tend to move and change positions a lot over the course of a night, ease of repositioning will be a priority for you. Our tester did experience any problems. The bed has no deep quilting or super-squishy foam that could impede movement.

Repositioning Rating
9 /10 Excellent

 

Green Features ( what’s this )

For mattress shoppers concerned with the use of natural materials, sustainable manufacturing practices or the like, we offer our subjective evaluation of any efforts taken by the company to make the mattress more green, healthy, or safe. 

For the Endy mattress, the company makes no claims about the use of natural materials.

All of the foams are petroleum-based, but they are certified to the CertiPUR-US standard, which verifies that a material has low VOC off-gassing as well as a lack of chemicals and other substances regulated by the CPSC. This is a fairly standard certification these days that we see on almost all mainstream brands. What's less common is that the entire Endy mattress has received Greenguard Gold certification, a stricter level of assurance that the mattress is safe for the most sensitive environments, like child-care centers and hospitals. Another less common certification attained by Endy is the OEKO-Tex Standard 100, a materials certification that ensures the absence of chemicals harmful to healthy.

We also gave the Endy mattress a ‘sniff test’ when we first unpacked, and it definitely had a 'new mattress smell' that seemed a little stronger than average to our nose. The smell dissipates over time and exposure to the air.

Green Rating
5/10 Okay

 

Adjustable Base Compatibility ( what’s this )

We tested the Endy mattress on our standard adjustable bed frame. The mattress is certainly safe to use on such a base -- it won't damage the mattress at all. But we did notice that the Endy didn't conform terribly well to the base when in its fully bent position; the foot of the mattress lifted up, and when our tester got off the mattress, it wanted to pop back up.

We would expect these conformance issues to improve over time, however, as the mattress breaks in a bit.

Adjustable Base Use Rating
8 /10 Very good

Price, Value & Longevity

What Does the Endy Cost?

PRICES SHOWN ARE LIST PRICES IN CANADIAN DOLLARS. Remember that GoodBed keeps our site current with the best available discounts on all online mattresses, many of which are exclusive discounts for our readers. This is an exclusive discount for our readers, and also provides GoodBed with a small referral fee from Endy that supports our work at no cost to you.

What Are You Getting?

The Endy is a 10-inch mattress made of polyurethane foam. And recognizing that some people still prefer to try a mattress in person, Endy has a number of showrooms an partner locations where you can try out and buy their products.

 

How Long Will the Endy Mattress Last?

When it comes to estimating the comfort lifespan of a mattress, we tend to use foam density as our best, albeit imperfect, predictor of how long a foam will retain its shape and resiliency. However, Endy does not disclose the densities of the foam used in the bed. So it's hard for us to make a judgement on how long they will last.

 

Overall Value

The Endy mattress is a basic, all-foam bed that's made and sold in Canada.

While the free delivery is only to your door, this mattress weighs substantially less than some competing mattresses. The queen size Endy bed weighs 66 pounds and would be substantially easier to manage than some of the 100+ pound mattresses we’ve reviewed.

If you prefer to try a mattress in a store, Endy's partner showrooms offer just that, allowing you to test in person but still take advantage of online pricing. We also applaud Endy's 10-year warranty, which isn't pro-rated. Meaning that even if your mattress requires warranty service 10 years after you've owned it, you'll get a brand new replacement at no cost.

For a wide range of people of average size -- and especially back sleepers of most any size -- the Endy is a low-hassle, basic mattress that comes with a top-notch 100-night trial period and solid 10-year warranty.

Value Rating
7/10 Good


Other Factors to Consider

Delivery

  • Free delivery 

Endy includes free delivery, which is not particularly unusual among its competitors. It's only delivered to your door, so you'll be responsible for getting the box to your bedroom and unpacking it.

 

Returns

  • 100-day trial period for Endy.com orders
  • Full refund, including free pickup within trial period

Endy offers buyers a 100-day trial period. Returns within the trial period are free, and they'll pick it up from you. There's one caveat -- Endy mattresses purchased through third-party retailers like Amazon are not eligible for the 100-day trial; rather the store's own return policy will apply.

 

Warranty

  • Warranty Length: 10 years
  • Indentation Coverage: 1” and above

One of the biggest, if not THE biggest complaints about any mattress from consumers regards body impressions—the inability of a mattress to spring back, eventually creating a low spot/sinkhole in the mattress. As such, mattress warranties all contain a term defining how big a sag or ‘body impression’ (measured when no one is on the mattress) is considered a defect, and thus covered under the warranty. The industry standard for mattresses is generally between ¾” and 1.5”. Endy has chosen to cover indentations that meet or exceed 1” for all its mattresses. Practically speaking, that means any softening or sagging would need to be at least that deep before the warranty would offer you protection.

Worth noting is that the warranty is not pro-rated. That means your mattress will replaced free of charge at any point during that 10 years if your mattress qualifies for warranty replacement. (Other companies sometimes pro-rate the warranty, meaning you'd be on the hook for a percentage of the replacement cost determined by how long you owned the original mattress.)
