he Douglas mattress is an all-foam mattress made in Canada. It has a medium-firm firmness level, which is the most popular firmness level for mattresses. The Douglas mattress is made with two layers of proprietary foams:
- Top layer: 2 inches of gel-infused ecoLight memory foam. This layer provides pressure relief and cooling.
- Bottom layer: 6 inches of base polyfoam. This layer provides support and durability.
The Douglas mattress is encased in a Tencel cover, which is a soft and breathable material. The mattress is also CertiPUR-US certified, which means that it is made with safe and sustainable materials.
The Douglas mattress is a good choice for people of all sleeping positions, but it is especially well-suited for back sleepers and side sleepers. The medium-firm firmness level provides good support for the spine and helps to keep the body in alignment. The pressure relief provided by the top layer of foam can also help to reduce back pain and shoulder pain.
The Douglas mattress is also a good choice for people who are looking for an affordable mattress. It is priced significantly lower than many other all-foam mattresses on the market.
Overall, the Douglas mattress is a good value for the money. It is made with high-quality materials, has a medium-firm firmness level that is suitable for most sleepers, and is priced affordably.
The Douglas mattress is a true Canadian mattress. It is made with materials all sourced from Canada, was designed by Canadians and can only be bought in Canada. This is a memory foam mattress that uses more eco-friendly foams than the competition which makes it a more responsible choice at a great price point. Currently a queen size Douglas retails for $799 Canadian which makes it a fantastic value.
Overview of the Douglas Mattress
This mattress comes roll packed and shipped in a box to your doorstep. It takes about a week after placing your order for the mattress to arrive. Opening the mattress is as easy as removing the plastic packaging and letting the mattress expand to its full shape. It should be ready to sleep on in about 4-5 hours.
This mattress comes with a 120 night trial which means you can have it for about 4 months and if not happy, return it for a full refund. You don’t have to pay return shipping either. Douglas will work with you to make the return process easy and painless. If you want to keep your Douglas, you are backed by a 15 year warranty. Most online mattress company warranties are 1o years.
Here’s a quick video overview of the mattress.
How is the Douglas Mattress Made?
According to their website, Doulgas mattresses are made with Canadian-built foams and fabrics. The top 2” comfort layer is made of ecoLight™ cooling gel foam, developed to be 50% less taxing on our environment but just as durable as high density memory foam. The middle 2” layer is made of Elastex™ foam to give the mattress just the right amount of bounce. The bottom 6” support foam isolates movement and provides better edge support. The washable cover is made from an eco-friendly Natural Eucalyptus Fabric™.

My Douglas Mattress Findings
When you first lay down on this mattress you will notice that it immediately contours to your spine. This gives the mattress a soft feeling. You are then supported by the middle and base layer at the bottom.
Here’s a photo of my 14 lb. bowling ball to illustrate the point.
This is an all foam mattress so motion transfer is contained. In comparison to the hundreds of other mattresses I have reviewed the top layer recovers quickly for being a foam mattress making it easier to switch positions at night. You won’t get that stuck feeling that dense foam mattresses known for.

My Douglas Mattress Recommendations
Overall I would rate this mattress on the softer end of the spectrum. I really like how the top layer feels. It is soft but recovers really quickly given how well it contours. This is what really makes the Douglas stand out from the other competition among the Canadian offerings. I think side sleepers will love this mattress because it really addresses pressure relief for your hips but especially your shoulders. Because the top layer of foam recovers fast, you don’t have to wait to get your, “spot” back when shifting positions or getting out of bed then coming back.
I recommend the Douglas to side back and occasional stomach sleepers that want quick contouring and a softer feel without sacrificing support or pressure relief. This mattress also sleeps on the cooler end of the spectrum for a memory foam mattress.
