Sleep Innovations Alden Memory Foam Mattress – Review
The Sleep Innovations Alden Memory Foam Mattress is a thick mattress specially designed with the comfort of side sleepers in mind. It is constructed with premium materials used by a manufacturer which knows that there is no such thing as a mattress suitable for all kinds of sleepers or sleeping positions. This led to the creation of a product which will fit the requirements and comfort preferences of those who prefer to sleep on their sides. By using science, the company was able to invent foam which is made to be used specifically for sleeping purposes only. This means that you will have the most comfortable sleep experience possible with a mattress customized to your specific sleeping needs.
How Memory Foam Works
The Sleep Innovations Alden Mattress is constructed with high-quality memory foam which works in a unique way to provide a relaxing and luxurious sleep experience. It is designed to respond to your body shape and weight as it fills in the gaps caused by your body’s contours. As a result, your back and other body parts touching the surface of the Innovation’s memory foam products are guaranteed to work by distributing body weight evenly so you can experience a deeply satisfying sleep while being comforted and supported by this material. This results in less tossing and turning (which can be the result of trying to find a more comfortable sleeping position) and more mornings of waking up feeling completely refreshed and energized.
The memory foam used in his mattress is designed to provide you with a customized experience every time you lie down on its surface. This material is designed to conform to your particular body shape and weight to give you a personalized sensation, with just the right amount of comfort and support to make this the best sleep experience you will ever encounter. It is important to note that memory foam is sensitive to temperature changes, which makes this material highly responsive to the contours of your body. As such, you may want to give the mattress some time to adjust to room temperature before you use it for sleeping purposes, in case you purchased this product during the colder months.
Sleep Innovations uses memory foam which the company itself manufactures entirely in the USA, so you can rest assured of the material’s superior quality and comforting features. This domestic manufacturing process makes it possible for the company that only superior quality materials go into crafting every mattress. It should be noted that some brands use memory foam materials which are sourced from other countries and may not meet the rigid quality control guidelines that Sleep Innovation mattresses adhere to. The company guarantees that your mattress meets the highest safety standards for the industry in the USA, as set by the California Bureau of Home Furnishing Technical Bulletin 117.
Foam Layers on this Sleep Innovations Alden Memory Foam Mattress
These are the different foam layers that make up this high-quality memory foam mattress:
SureTemp Memory Foam
This foam uses patented open cell formation that encourages air to freely pass through the material, ensuring that heat is dissipated and will not be retained so you will not feel the unwelcome warmth when you lie down on this surface. This open cell structure helps in temperature regulation that will result in a coolly comfortable sensation even when you stay in one position for several hours at a time while you sleep, keeping you from feeling overheated so you can sleep peacefully through the night. The structure of this proprietary foam material also works to give you an enhanced cradling sensation that feels truly welcoming.
Support Plus Foam
This foam layer is the manufacturer’s most rigid foam construction, which is specially designed to provide maximum support and stability. This layer works to keep you firmly in place without the sinking feeling that can be the result of a mattress which is too soft. The support plus foam also helps maintain the proper alignment of your spine as you sleep on your side, preventing body aches which can come from your body unconsciously trying to find a more comfortable position while asleep.
Air Channel Foam
This foam layer is more responsive and flexible which makes it easily adaptable to your body’s contours and needs as you lie down on the mattress. It comes with specially designed airflow channels that encourage proper ventilation with air passing through without hindrance. This result in a cooling effect which works with the other features of the mattress to keep it comfortably cool through a long night’s sleep. The material is also breathable and keeps heat and moisture away from your body so you will not feel discomfort with an overheated feeling. This foam layer also comes with a slightly stiff profile for additional support that will keep your body stable in the most comfortable manner.
Sleep Innovations Alden Memory Foam Mattress in 2 Cover Options
This memory foam mattress is available in two versions:
This memory foam mattress features a tufted cover that has a pillow soft feel to give you that welcoming and cradling sensation you will enjoy as you sleep for several hours on this surface. It comes with a diamond-shaped pattern on the top part and continues to the edge of the mattress. The lower part features a gray-colored fabric that sports smaller diamond-shaped patterns for a lovely profile that will go well with almost any room aesthetic.
This mattress is equipped with a premium support bottom layer that provides ample support to keep your body stable when you sleep and keeps the spine properly aligned. This can prevent body aches that may be the result of your body trying to find the most comfortable position when your spine is in an unnatural alignment. On the other hand, the middle layer provides pushback resistance that keeps you from feeling like you are sinking deeply into the mattress in a suffocating manner. The top layer works to give you a cradling sensation and conforms to the contours of your body for the most supportive and comforting sleep experience that will totally refresh your body and mind.
This original cover version is available in the following sizes: twin, full, queen, king, and California king.
This version of the high-quality memory foam mattress features a handmade tufted cover that feels smooth and soft to enhance your comfort level as soon as your body hits this welcoming surface. The top portion of this cover features elegant swirls that move down to the sides of the mattress. The bottom portion is covered with a gray fabric with small diamond-patterned tufting, which is made more interesting by a thin strip of purple fabric that works to accentuate the eye-catching profile of this mattress. The result is an elegant-looking mattress that can be used even without a separate sheet and will seamlessly blend in with any room design without clashing with the existing décor or furniture.
The Sleep Innovations Alden Memory Foam Mattress comes with a supportive base composed of the manufacturer’s most rigid foam construction to provide a firm layer that will keep your body stable and supported through a restful night’s sleep. This layer also works to maintain the properly aligned position of your spine so you can sleep in complete comfort without the need to fitfully toss and turn while trying to find a neutral sleeping position. This mattress is equipped with a responsive and flexible breezy middle layer that encourages proper air ventilation to keep the heat away from your body. It also provides a stiff surface that helps you stay in a stable position so you will not sink uncomfortably into the mattress. Meanwhile, the top layer features the SureTemp memory foam which allows air to freely pass through so you will not feel overheated even when you sleep on the mattress for several hours during the night. This top layer also offers an enhanced cradling sensation that hugs the contours of your body so you will feel like your body is sinking lovingly into the mattress without losing the supportive feel.

Comfort & Ergonomics
The SureTemp memory foam on top of this mattress works to allow air to circulate freely through the material so it stays cool, making it possible for you to enjoy undisturbed sleep through the night. The open cell structure of this layer keeps the heat away from your body so you will not have to go through the discomfort of feeling overly warm when you stay on the mattress for several hours.
This top memory foam layer is responsible for the comforting cradling sensation, which is the result of the memory foam conforming to your body’s contours soon after your body hits the surface of this mattress. This layer prevents pressure points from forming on body parts such as your hips and legs, which can lead to body aches especially when you stay on the mattress for a long time.
The middle foam layer works to enhance breathability with airflow channels that encourage proper ventilation, so heat does not stay in the mattress, and is instead pushed outwards and away from your body. This layer features a stiff profile which is suitable for providing the firm stability that your body needs, keeping it comfortably in place without sinking too much into the foam layers as you sleep.
The deep support foam layer of this memory foam mattress from Sleep Innovations helps in maintaining a properly aligned position for your spine as you sleep through the night. This is an important feature that will keep you from feeling body aches in parts such as your neck, shoulders, and back, which may be the result of your body unconsciously trying to find a better position while sleeping. As the spine is kept in proper alignment, your entire body will be in a neutral and comfortable position which will facilitate an uninterrupted and refreshing sleep so you can wake up fully energized in the morning.
This memory foam mattress significantly reduces motion transfer, which means that your restless movements will not bother your partner sleeping on the other side of the mattress. This is made possible by the memory foam working to keep the effects of your movements confined to your specific area and preventing it from spreading and affecting your partner across the mattress. This mattress is also designed to produce almost no noise to ensure that you and your loved ones will enjoy deep sleep uninterrupted by mattress noises.

Who is This Mattress Ideal For?
This is an ideal choice for people who want to have a high-quality memory foam mattress without having to pay a huge amount for the experience. The price point of this Sleep Innovations Alden Memory Foam Mattress is much lower compared to the cost that is offered by other mattress brands with similar features. This means that customers can have the benefit of sleeping in the most comfortable manner on a topnotch memory foam mattress without the high cost commonly associated with such products.
This mattress is ideal for those who sleep on their side, as it is specifically designed to bring comfort and support to side sleepers. The SureTemp memory foam layer on top of the mattress is constructed to give a cradling sensation that fully follows the contours of your body, while relieving the pressure on the hips, knees, and shoulders – body parts which tend to ache for side sleepers when sleeping on an unforgiving surface. As the top layer offers the completely comforting sensation, the bottom layer meanwhile works to offer firm stability to keep the spine properly aligned and supported to prevent the body from going through unnatural sleeping positions in hopes of finding a more comfortable way to sleep through the night.
This mattress is suitable for those who tend to toss and turn during the night, and do not want to disturb their partner with the restless movements. The memory foam and support foam layers are designed to significantly reduce motion transfer, confining the effects of the motion to a specific area of the mattress and preventing the movement from being felt by the occupant on the other side of the mattress. This way, uninterrupted sleep can be enjoyed even when the other mattress occupant is prone to restless tossing and turning while sleeping.
- Ideal for side sleepers who need the cradling sensation and supportive firmness
- Significantly reduces motion transfer so restless movement by one occupant will not disturb the other person sharing the mattress
- Keeps the spine properly aligned to prevent body aches due to unnatural sleeping positions
- Relieves pressure points by evenly distributing body weight on the mattress
- The mattress may have the tendency to become too warm with the absence of a cooling gel layer
This mattress is a great choice for side sleepers who want to have the most comfortable sleep experience possible. The construction of his memory foam mattress ensures that side sleepers will no longer have to suffer from painful knees, hips, and shoulders as they sleep through several hours during the night. This mattress works to relieve the pressure on these specific body parts by providing a comforting and supportive cushioned layer. The body weight is evenly distributed so no specific body parts will bear the pressure of the body bearing down on the mattress. This means that you can sleep on your side for hours at a time without waking up with sore body parts where they have been in contact with the mattress.
This is a superb mattress choice if you are looking for a mattress that can provide firm support to be able to maintain a properly aligned position for your spine. When your spine is properly aligned, your body, in turn, can stay in a comfortable and neutral position through several hours of sleep. On the other hand, improper spine alignment can cause your body to take on unnatural positions in its quest to find a more comfortable position while sleeping. This can result in fitful tossing and turning which will significantly affect the quality of your sleep, causing you to wake up the next morning feeling tired and cranky instead of being energized.
The Sleep Innovations Alden Memory Foam Mattress is a good choice if you want to experience the benefits of using a high-quality memory foam mattress without spending too much. This mattress is crafted with the manufacturer’s goal of producing topnotch mattresses for specific sleeping requirements, with affordable price points that will make them available to more customers. You can enjoy the premium qualities of the mattress and at the same time keep to your specified budget to get the best value possible.
This mattress works to greatly reduce motion transfer by keeping the movements isolated only to specific areas. For example, when you restlessly move through the night, your movements on this memory foam mattress will be confined to your localized area – and will not spread towards other mattress areas that your partner occupies. This means that your partner can enjoy deep, undisturbed sleep regardless of the tossing and turning that you do.
This may not be the best mattress choice for people who are of above average weight since it offers a comfortable and supportive profile fit for average weights. This means that the comfort level of this mattress is significantly affected by how much the occupant weighs. The supportive foam layers may not be enough to offer firm stability and comfort to an individual with a bulkier physique, although this may still be largely dependent on the sleeping position of the individual. In addition, this mattress may not be the most suitable choice for people who sleep on their backs or stomach. This is because the medium soft firmness is specifically geared for a comfortable sleep experience for those who sleep on their side. Also, the lack of a gel cooling layer or system may be a problem for people who tend to have an overheated experience when sleeping. With only an air channel foam layer to offer some sort of ventilation, the mattress may become warmer especially when you sleep in just one position during several hours of sleep. As such, this mattress is not suitable for maintaining a cool and comfortable feeling for individuals who are prone to feeling warmer through the night.
