Materials and Construction
The Molblly 12-inch Memory Foam Mattress contains three layers of foam to bring to the customer the required comfort as well as support. It is an all-foam mattress and improves upon the heat dissipation features of the memory foam to bring fast and comfortable sleep and at the same time provides ultimate support to the body. The top layer is a 3-inch memory foam layer, which is followed by a higher density 3.5-inch layer of comfort foam. This layer acts as a transitionary layer between the top memory foam layer and the support layer at the bottom of the mattress. The base layer is a 5.5-inch high-density support foam base layer which provides a high level of support to the body as well as to the upper layers of the mattress. The mattress also includes a removable and washable soft fabric cover which is highly breathable and as such, it is hypoallergenic as well.
The cover of this 12-inch mattress is made out of soft and breathable fabric. This is extremely beneficial as not only it provides a soft and comfortable sleep surface; it allows for enhanced air circulation through it. This resulting airflow wicks away sweat and moisture away from the body and the mattress and keeps the sleep surface as well as the body dry and cool. The enhanced airflow enables a very clean and sanitary sleep surface, which has hypoallergenic properties. The constant aeration ensures that moisture is wicked away and managed properly, which results in the absence of allergens, dust mites, bacteria, mildew, and mold, etc. In the absence of such organisms, the people who have allergy issues and skin irritations can use this mattress to have a comfortable and sound sleep throughout the night without getting disturbed. They do not have to wake up with skin irritations or stuffed noses when they sleep on this mattress and would wake up fully energized and rejuvenated.
The topmost foam layer of this mattress is a 3-inch memory foam layer. Memory foam has been very popular in the last decade. However, it had been developed in the 60s for NASA and later it was sold to a public company which started producing it for mattresses in the 90s. Memory foam is different from traditional foam in the sense that it has body conformance and pressure relieving properties. When a traditional foam is used, it tends to apply an upward pressure which goes against gravity, which tries to pull the body downwards. The result is that the knees, hips, shoulders, neck, spine, etc. come under a lot of stress. This stress is not relieved by traditional foam, and the individual sleeping on a traditional foam surface usually wakes up with numb legs and sore muscles. The memory foam has pressure relieving properties, and all the body parts that are under stress are relieved of pressure. These parts are known as pressure points, and memory foam relieves pressure points.
Memory foam also enables the top mattress layer to cradle and mold around the shape of the body. Thus, memory foam takes the shape of the body and gets depressed at areas where the body weight is applied. When the body shifts its weight or gets up from the mattress, the memory foam regains its shape once again. Thus, no lasting body impressions are formed on the memory foam mattresses. This is a characteristic of memory foam mattresses, and they are ideal in terms of body conformance.
Memory foam layer also supports the alignment of the back and the spine. Each body part is supported individually and evenly. The entire weight of the body is spread over the entire surface of the mattress. In traditional mattresses, the weight used to be mostly concentrated on the pressure points. The mattress can take the shape of the body curves and supports the lower back. This allows the spine to stay in a neutral position, which is the desired position for the spine. This is very much unlike pure springs which tend to concentrate the weight on hips, shoulders and the heels. This is crucial for back and side sleepers, especially, as their lumbar area does not get the required amount of support and lower back pain or muscular tension could result. In the case of the memory foam layer, this weight is distributed throughout the mattress.
Memory foam layer on top of the matters is very helpful for people who have fibromyalgia and arthritis. As the spine is correctly aligned, the memory foam contours along the curves of the body, and sensitive areas of the body do not come under pressure, and the body starts to experience a high level of comfort. Pain and aches are reduced, and the individual gets to sleep soundly and deeply. Regardless of how an individual sleeps on the mattress, i.e., on the side, back or on the stomach, the viscoelastic foam or memory foam accommodates all types of positions very easily. It enables the sleeper to settle into the most comfortable position, and as explained earlier, there are no pressure points as well. The memory foam curves to the spine for back sleepers and provides very good lumbar support enabling the body to relax. For side sleepers, it accommodates the hips and the shoulders and continues to support the waist and the spine. A far as stomach sleepers are concerned, it keeps their back in proper shape and does not let the pressure points develop.
Memory foam layer on the mattress also enables motion isolation. In traditional mattresses, couples get disturbed when one sleep partner moves or gets up from the bed. In the case of memory foam, as the partner gets up from the mattress, the mattress area under him/he gets back to shape and the motion is not transferred to the other sleep partner. This is beneficial for couples who have separate sleep schedules. Normally, a typical spring mattress would accumulate up to a million dust mites. This is not the case for this mattress. There are large empty areas in such mattresses which allow the dust mites to live and thrive in them. The structure of the memory foam is dense, and it does not allow the dust mites space for living and thriving in it. The middle layer of comfort foams a higher density foam, and the base foam has the highest density within this mattress. None of the three layers of the mattress, therefore, allow the dust mites to live and thrive within the mattress. This gives hypoallergenic properties to the entire mattress besides similar properties of the soft fabric cover. The memory foam layer also repels pet dander and mold. People with wool, fiber, or feather allergies can easily use this mattress.
The middle layer in this mattress is that of higher density comfort foam which relieves pressure points and also acts as a transitionary layer to the support foam base layer. The base layer provides the ultimate support to the body as well as to the upper layers of the mattress. It is composed of high-density foam with a density greater than 5 lbs/ft3. This means that one cubic foot of this layer would weigh more than 5 lbs. This base layer is responsible for ensuring that the body does not get a sinking feeling while laying down on the mattress. As explained above, this layer does not allow dust mites to develop in it because of its dense structure. Apart from providing support to the body, this layer contributes greatly towards the durability of the mattress as it is very sturdy and strong.

Comfort & Ergonomics
The Molblly 12 Inch Memory Foam Mattress is an all-foam 3-layered mattress, and all the three layers of foam used in it contribute to ensuring that the body is comfortable on the mattress. The soft fabric cover has a lot of contribution towards this goal as well as it is soft, breathable, and hypoallergenic. It enables a very soft sleep surface, which is aerated properly due to the enhanced airflow through it. The sweat and moisture of the body are wicked away quickly, and a cool and comfortable sleep surface is ensured. The memory foam layer is instrumental in enhancing the level of comfort to new heights as it cradles the body and contours along its curves to give a lot of comfort. It relieves pressure points which would otherwise render the muscles sore and the legs numb as is the case with traditional mattresses. The memory foam distributes the weight of the body evenly throughout the surface of the mattress instead of concentrating it at pressure points. This relieves pressure, and the spine is also held in a proper position by the memory foam, enabling a sound and deep sleep.
The softcover of the mattress, as well as the memory foam layer, enable the mattress to exhibit hypoallergenic properties. AS the memory foam layer has a dense structure as compared to the traditional innerspring mattresses which have a lot of space inside, dust mites are not allowed to live insider this mattress. The middle and the base layer in this mattress are even denser as compared to the comfortable memory foam layer. Therefore, these layers do not allow pet dander, dust mites, or mold to thrive in the mattress. These hypoallergenic properties are beneficial for those people who are prone to allergies and who usually get skin irritations or stuffed noses on traditional mattresses. On this mattress, they can sleep throughout the night very deeply and comfortably. They would not toss and turn due to any discomfort and would wake up fully energized and ready to face the hectic day ahead.
All the foam layers in this mattress are CertiPUR-US certified. This is also a source of great comfort as the mattress does not contain any harmful chemical like formaldehyde, mercury, lead, other heavy metals, PBDEs, phthalates, and fire retardants. Being free of these chemicals makes the mattress clean and is beneficial in terms of health and wellness. The quality of air in the room is also guaranteed as the CertiPUR-US certification ensures that the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emitted by the mattress are well under control and within acceptable limits. This is a source of satisfaction for the purchaser as clean air in the bedroom is ensured throughout the time, the mattress is n use at home.
The mattress is also STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified. This means that the mattress is tested every three years by independent institutes and it is certified that it does not contain harmful substances like Nickel, azo dyes, etc. according to the European Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) standards. The standards also conform to the requirements of United States CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) for lead content for children. The assurance available to the purchaser as a result of these certifications leads to peace of mind.
On an overall basis, the mattress is breathable, soft, body-conforming, temperature regulating, and supportive. All the three foam layers and the soft fabric cover contribute towards the comfort level and the excellent ergonomics of the mattress. The body is cradled by the top layer, and it is made comfortable by the relieving of pressure points. The base layer provides the ultimate support which enables a pushback on the body, thus preventing a sinking feeling. The hypoallergenic nature of the cover and the mattress enhance the overall comfort level, and an overall relaxing, comfortable and cool sleep microenvironment is developed on top of the mattress enabling a sound and deep rest throughout the night.
Durability and Warranty
The durability of the mattress is directly related to the build quality of the mattress as well as to the quality of the materials used in its construction. The manufacturer has employed a professional team of craftsmen and engineers who have skilfully developed and constructed this mattress with diligence and dexterity. The materials employed are also of very high quality as all the foams used in this mattress are CertiPUR-US certified. The foams have been independently tested in laboratories of a third-party institute and have been certified to be free of any harmful chemicals which include formaldehyde, PBDEs, mercury, lead, other heavy metals, phthalates, and fire retardants, etc. The absence of these harmful substances guarantees that the mattress would last for a very long time as these chemicals if present could damage the performance of the mattress in the long run. They would have been hazardous for human health and wellness as well. The CertiPUR-US certification also ensures that the levels of emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from this mattress are under control and within acceptable levels. This ensures constant room air quality and supports the use of this mattress for a very long time.
The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification also assures the durability of the mattress as it does not contain harmful substances like nickel and azo dyes, etc. The presence of harmful chemicals in the mattress degrades its performance, and as such, their absence ensures that they would last for a long time. The CertiPUR-US certification also ensures the performance of the foams used in this mattress besides their content. On the whole, the mattress is highly durable as memory foam structure is dense, and it tends to last a long time. The lower the density of the foam, the lower is its ability to last for a long time. The memory foam layer is durable due to its structure, and the middle and the base layers are of even higher densities as compared to the memory foam layer. Therefore, the mattress would last long if properly maintained and taken care of.
The durability of this mattress can be ensured by airing it properly for at least three days after it arrives. It can be you after unpacking to let it get back to its full dimensions and also to off-gas. When the foam is processed, it tends to trap process air inside the mattress foam layers. Once the mattress is allowed to off-gas, it would give off this process air which would also release odor from the mattress. After 72 hours of off-gassing in an airy area with preferably the fan turned on, the mattress can be used and bedding placed on it. It must be placed on a very solid bed frame or foundation so that it is not allowed to sag; otherwise, its shape would be distorted. The bed frame or the foundation must also hold the mattress properly as sliding and wobbling could end up damaging it.
If the mattress gets a liquid spill, it must be wiped clean with a piece of cloth and dried afterward. If the spill is large, pressure could be applied on the cloth to ooze the liquid out of the mattress. In any case, the mattress can only be spot cleaned. The cover, however, can be removed and it is washable. The mattress can be air dried as the application of heat could damage it. Electric blankets and heating pads must not be used on this mattress as the heat could make the memory foam lose its pressure-relieving properties. For cleaning purposes, only water-based products can be used, and bleach or chemicals must never be tried. With such proper care and maintenance, the mattress would be highly durable and would last for a very long time.
The warranty for this mattress is a 10-year limited warranty. It covers defects due to materials and workmanship. It does not cover burns, cuts, wear and tear and damage due to spillage. Any defects developed due to mishandling or during transportation are not covered as well. The warranty starts from the date of purchase, and the warranty claim would require the original purchase receipt.
The height of this mattress is 12 inches, and this height needs to be added to the bed frame base height or the foundation base height to get the total height of the sleep system. The bedding has to be accounted for as well. If the height appears to be a bit too much, a low bed frame or foundation could be used. This mattress is available in Twin, Queen and King sizes. The Twin size mattress weighs 37 lbs. And its dimensions are 75 x 39 x 12 inches. The Queen size mattress weighs 62 lbs. And the product dimensions are 80 x 60 x 12 inches.
