The Helix Midnight Luxe is the most popular, and in my opinion, the most comfortable of the Helix line of mattresses. Although that’s just my opinion and everyone is different however all the helix mattress reviews occupying the Google top 10 rate this an excellent mattress. That’s why Helix created an assortment of mattresses with varying construction to appeal to all body types and preferences. The Midnight Luxe is a hybrid mattress which is made with a base layer of zoned pocketed coils and multiple layers of cooling, reactive foam. The cover is made with Tencel fibers which sleep cool and you can even upgrade to the Glacio-Tex Cooling Cover which is a phase change material that cools you down as you get into bed.
Although the Helix Midnight Luxe is slightly more expensive than some of the competing online brands, it is well worth the extra money given the construction, materials and overall feel of the mattress.
Overview of the Helix Midnight Luxe
Helix as a brand has been around for over 6 years and has grown dramatically. They make their mattress in Phoenix Arizona ships fast. Most orders I have placed arrive in about a week, maximum 2 weeks. Despite midnight lux being a thick, hybrid mattress with springs and foam, it still ships compressed in a box which is delivered by FedEx or UPS. Compressing it in a box does not take away from its quality or feel. It’s just a much more conveninet method of shipping mattresses these days.
Here’s a short video showing the unboxing process. This mattress is basically ready to sleep on after you open the box. Normally you should wait about 5-8 hours for the mattress to fully expand but the Helix has a special type of foam that acts more like latex and springs to life almost instantly.
This mattress features multiple comfort layers that are thoughfully put together to create a true medium feel.
The cover is made with TENCEL fabric which is more breathable than cotton or if you sleep extra hot, you can add the GlacioTex Cooling Cover which has a phase change material making the mattress cool to the touch. This will help you cool down and relax faster when you go to bed.
The first comfort layer is the Memory Plus Foam layer. It’s a high density foam with a medium feel for great pressure relief.
The second comfort layer is a Gel Visco foam design to support and cushion your body. It’s made with a medium IFD for a consistent firmness.
There is a High-Grade Polyfoam layer that is used as a transition between the foam layers and the base coil system.
The Helix Midnight Luxe is made with 1,000+ wrapped coils that are zoned out across the mattress to give you more support at your hips and better pressure relief at your shoulders. These coils will help balance your body evenly across the mattress.
The bottom layer is made with DuraDense Foam to provide a base support and durability.
My Helix Midnight Luxe Review
As a predominantly side sleeper myself, the Helix Midnight Luxe is my favorite among the Helix mattress models. It is a soft mattress that provides just the right amount of support for side sleepers but will still work great for back sleepers. This Helix Midnight Luxe is a good choice for couples that want the targeted support that only coils can provide will eliminating most of the motion transfer due to the quality layers of foam at the top of the mattress.
This mattress is made in the USA out of their Arizona factory. Shipping is usually about 5 business days and in some cases less if you live in California or Arizona.
Since their inception, Helix has prided itself on customization and acknowledges that one size does not fit all. They made the Midnight Luxe specifically for side sleepers with shoulder and/or hip pain that want great support but don’t want to be woken up by their partner in the middle of the night.
If there are any cons for the Helix Midnight Luxe, it is that if you sit at the edge of the mattress, you won’t get great support. That’s because of the softer layers of foam at the top. There are firm coils along the perimeter of the mattress for good support but comments I get from customers is that the side can sag a bit if you sit on it. That said, you will be spending the majority of your time sleeping on the mattress and this in my opinion is a worhty trade off.
Considering the amount of foam on the top of the mattress, I expected it to sleep warmer than it actually did. The ability to keep me cool is in part due to the Tencel cover but also the quality of foam below it. This foam sort of acts like latex in that it bounces back quickly and doesn’t leave impressions. Not only will this make it sleep cooler but it’s easy to switch positions and get in and out of the mattress.
One drawback to the Helix Midnight Luxe is the lack of edge support. Although it has a zone coil system with firmer coils along the edge, the multiple layers of foam above the coil system are fairly soft and won’t be as supportive however it will offer better edge support that any memory foam mattress out there.
Since this mattress is one of the softer offerings from Helix, Stomach sleepers should instead consider the Helix Dusk Luxe.
I also give Helix overall high marks for customer service. They have grown exponentially as a company and they may not be able to answer calls as quickly as some of the other companies but when I chat or send emails, I get quick responses.
My Helix Midnight Luxe Recommendation
I have the Helix Midnight Luxe available to try in my Yawnder mattress stores and what suprises me is that the customers specifically looking to try this mattress end up buying it. The same goes with the Helix Dusk Luxe which we also have on display. This tells me that Helix is doing it’s job in marketing the mattress by accurately setting expectations of what the mattress feels like and how it will perform. While you will pay a little more for this mattress, it is well worth the investment. Not only are you getting a superior product but you just can’t beat the feel. I highly reommend this mattress for side sleepers and combo sleepers. If you want a firm mattress, look elsewhere but if you want one that can be soft, supportive and easy to move around on, look no further.
If you are looking for an all-natural option, consider the Birch mattress, it is also made by Helix and the Birch Luxe is their softer offering which is similar in firmness to the Helix Midnight Luxe but since it is latex, it can’t offer as good of pressure relief. In a comparison of Awara vs. Helix the Helix wins hands down.
Helix Midnight Luxe vs. Helix Midnight Elite
Looking for even more pressure relief and comfort? Upgrade to the new Helix Midnight Elite that incorporates more foam and coils. You actually get 2 layers of microcoils and the mattress arrives in 2 boxes due to its size.
Treat yourself to 5 individual foam layers, combining to provide a medium feel while cradling your hips and shoulders in side sleeping positions.
