Milliard Diplomat Bed Review in 2019
Milliard started out as a small company based in Jersey Shore in 2009. The company quickly grew to popularity, thanks to its commitment to helping consumers sleep better.
Milliard ensures that each of the company’s products undergo testing and meets safety standards and strict requirements for quality control. The brand’s products have been thoroughly researched to ensure excellent design and reliable function.
The company manufactures an extensive selection of sleep products, including mattress toppers, tri-fold mattresses, pet beds, folding beds, crib mattresses, pillows, and cushions. The Milliard Diplomat Folding Bed with Memory Foam Mattress and Wire Lattice Frame has the thickest mattress compared to the mattresses on the brand’s other folding beds.
The Diplomat Folding Bed features thick layers of memory foam and support foam, materials that ensure that the mattress is both comfortable and supportive. A polyester cover gives the folding bed’s mattress a softer surface for added comfort.
Materials and Construction
The Milliard Diplomat Folding Bed with Memory Foam Mattress and Wire Lattice Frame is a well-made folding bed featuring only premium materials. Every component of this folding bed has been thoroughly inspected, so you can be sure of its craftsmanship and construction.
This folding bed comprises two main parts: the mattress and the frame. The mattress is made of five layers, a soft polyester cover, a layer of fireproof fiberglass protection, memory foam, base support foam, and a non-slip bottom. All these layers in the mattress work together to make the folding bed a comfortable surface to sleep on.
The folding bed has a polyester cover, specifically made to add not only softness but also durability. Polyester is a fabric commonly used in mattress covers because of its feel and resilience. The cover extends all the way to the mattress’ sides and is attached to the non-slip bottom. You don’t have to worry about the cover slipping off while the folding bed is in use. The cover is also removable and washable, so you can clean the cover whenever needed.
Right under the polyester cover is a layer of fireproof fiberglass protection. Fireproof fiberglass protection is a federal regulation standard for mattresses manufactured in the US, specifically 16 CFR Part 1633. Mattresses manufactured in the US are required to contain fire retardant, which will enable the mattress to resist fire. You can be sure that the mattress in this folding bed won’t catch flame easily, as it can resist even flame from a blowtorch.
After the fireproof fiberglass protection layer comes the mattress’ memory foam layer. This composite memory foam is of high quality and is an inch thick, so you can count on the material to be a reliable comfort layer for the Diplomat folding bed. Composite memory foam is made from polyurethane foam, with polyurethane polymer granules embedded in the foam. This structure makes it possible for the memory foam to accurately follow the shape of the sleeper.
The memory foam layer in the mattress of this folding bed has a density rating of 2.5 as well as an IFD rating of 12.0. All these features allow the memory foam layer to give the bed’s mattress a medium-firm feel.
Instead of springs, the mattress’ support layer is made from high-density base foam. The base foam layer is 4 inches thick, so you’ll get plenty of support without the feel of springs poking up through the mattress’ foam layers. The final layer of non-slip fabric at the bottom of the mattress helps secure the mattress to the folding bed’s frame.
The flexible foam in the mattress of the Diplomat folding bed carries the CertiPUR-US certification. The certification ensures that the foam is non-toxic and completely safe to use. The foam in this mattress has been tested and analyzed by an independent lab to ensure that it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals, like ozone depleters, heavy metals like mercury and lead, formaldehyde, and phthalates. The foam in this folding bed’s mattress is also free from harmful flame retardants and is guaranteed to have low VOC emissions.
The frame on the Diplomat folding bed is made from premium, high-quality steel tubing. The frame’s steel tubes have double reinforcement to resist bending and ensure maximum stability. The frame also features a wire lattice designed to be rigid with no unnecessary moving parts, so it won’t sag under the weight of the sleeper.
This folding bed is designed with sturdy legs to fully support you when sleeping. Each leg comes with a locking brace, all made and installed for your safety. Two wheels can be locked into place when the bed is in use for added security.
And since the Diplomat folding bed is not made to be a permanent sleeping solution, the folding bed is also designed for hassle-free portability and storage. It is easy to move from one place to another, due to its 360-degree pivoting casters, to make sure you can move your bed from one place to another with no hassle. The bed folds up into a compact package measuring just 14 inches thick, so you won’t have problems squeezing the folding bed into a closet for storage.
Milliard also goes the extra mile by ensuring that the Diplomat folding bed reaches its destination whole and intact. The folding bed is double-boxed and bagged to ensure that it doesn’t get damaged on its way to your front step.

Comfort and Ergonomics
The Milliard Diplomat Folding Bed with Memory Foam Mattress and Wire Lattice Frame features two types of foam and a sturdy wire frame. This ensures that the folding bed offers the right balance of comfort and support, even if it’s not a traditional sleeping solution. Even your guests will definitely enjoy sleeping on this bed.
The first layer of comfort you’ll feel from the mattress is its soft polyester cover. Polyester is commonly used in mattress covers because of its feel and durability. The cover will complement the softness of the memory foam layer underneath. Plus, polyester tends to have quick-drying qualities, so it may be more comfortable to sleep on during hot nights. The fabric also gives the mattress a silky-soft feel, so you can relax on the folding bed even with no sheets.
The main comfort layer on the Diplomat folding bed is its one-inch memory foam layer. Composite memory foam is designed to conform to the shape of the sleeper’s body, offering no resistance at all under the sleeper’s weight. The mattress’ memory foam layer will yield to your body and it won’t force your body to adjust to its surface.
With its memory foam layer, the mattress on the Milliard Diplomat folding bed can help relieve pressure points by evenly distributing your weight across the mattress. This means no part of your body carries more weight than necessary as you stay in one position all night. You’ll wake up feeling refreshed and energized and free from aches and pains.
Though the folding bed’s mattress will yield to pressure from your body, the memory foam layer has a density rating of 2.5 and an IFD rating of 12.0. The mattress’ high-density base layer also has a firmer feel compared to the memory foam layer. All these features give the mattress has a medium-firm feel.
Another excellent comfort feature of the Diplomat folding bed’s mattress is that it can help keep your spine in neutral position. The mattress is firm enough to keep your spine properly aligned, whether you sleep on your back, side, or stomach. This is particularly helpful for side sleepers, as the mattress will provide sufficient support to the shoulders, waist, hips, and knees while still being soft enough to accommodate your body’s curves.
The folding bed’s layer of base support foam also plays a role in its overall comfort layers. The base support foam layer measures four inches thick, and the extra thickness helps prevent the sleeper from sinking too far into the mattress. This helps support neutral spine alignment, too, especially in relation to the position of the sleeper’s legs.
The mattress’ foam layers have a combined thickness of five inches. This is considerably thicker compared to the flimsy mattress on similar folding beds today. The extra thickness ensures that sleepers will get the support and comfort they need from this Diplomat folding bed.
What’s more is that the flexible foam in the mattress of the Milliard Diplomat folding bed has the CertiPUR-US certification. The certification indicates that the foam is free from toxic chemicals and heavy metals and has low emissions of volatile organic compounds. This means that the mattress is more comfortable to use. It won’t emit any toxic odors and it will not compromise the quality of indoor air in your home.
Plus, memory foam not only conforms to your body’s shape. The material also helps ensure that the folding bed’s mattress doesn’t trigger any allergies. Memory foam is naturally anti-microbial, and its dense structure prevents the material from accumulating dust mites, pollen, and other allergens over the years. These features make the mattress more comfortable to sleep on, especially for allergy sufferers.
Another great feature of this folding bed is that it has a non-slip bottom on the underside of its mattress to provide added security when you start using the folding bed.This way, the mattress won’t slip off the frame no matter how much you move around. The steel frame also improves the folding bed’s ability to provide support. The wire lattice design of the folding frame has minimal give, so it won’t sag under the weight of the sleeper and he can enjoy full support from the mattress. The rigidity of the frame can also keep your back well-supported.
There are no springs in the folding bed’s frame, so you don’t have to worry about springs poking you in the back or side as you lay in bed. Stabilizing legs at each end of the folding bed have locking braces, so the bed will stay put once it’s in a stationary position.
