Hi Phoenix - sorry, I didn't mean to mis-quote you. But because of the high cost, various configuration options and the impracticality of returning a purchase, I am just highly recommending that people try before they buy.

Hi lyott,

No worries! ;)

We are certainly in agreement of the benefit of being able to test something in person as an important source of information as part of your data gathering process (as part of your PPP).

There are people who are more flexible in their comfort preferences or more comfortable shopping online, in which case your post also brings up the importance of looking into the exchange, refund or customization options of any mattress you purchase in the unfortunate case that things didn’t turn out as you had hoped.

Thanks!

Phoenix

Does anyone have any feedback about Dozy Sleep ?
The small amount of reviews they get are stellar.

In their Yorkville mattress ($500), they claim a "4lb foam in the top layer, 2.5lb transition layer, and 2 lb foam for the core".
It is half the price of the Silk and Snow mattress I was considering with very similar specs.

I've emailed Silk and Snow how do they compare to them: they replied that indeed these specs are very similar to theirs and this is cheaper than they can purchase at cost, which sounds very suspect.

I've bought in a rush a terrible starter mattress when I first moved in and I don't want to make the same mistake again.

Hi bolozno.

Welcome to our Mattress Forum! :)

Does anyone have any feedback about Dozy Sleep ? The small amount of reviews they get are stellar.


I am not familiar with Dozy or with their products. They are a Toronto based factory direct company that was started by Dave Dozy in 2016 …. which is not quite long enough for a well-established track record with consumers. Reviews can certainly be helpful in learning about the reputation of a company (assuming the reviews are legitimate) and how responsive these companies are to questions or concerns. Whether “stellar” or not, I would be cautious putting too much weight on the online reviews for any meaningful analysis of a product. These reviews are usually made in the short-term when any quality of item will generally feel better than what is being replaced. Additionally, these reviews are usually offered up by people unqualified to render an educated analysis about the actual composition of the product. And most often they are subjective, commenting upon personal preferences versus the actual quality of the product.

I would put more stock on your own personal testing of a mattress and the quality of the componentry within the mattress itself. If you are within driving distance you could visit their showroom to test each of their 3 models.

In reading the FAQ on Dozy website it looks like they only exchange an unsuitable or defective mattress, which means that you will not get your money back if you decide (after an exchange) that you do not like any of their models. You may wish to clarify this with them and also find out what is their “refund” policy if you exchange for a less expensive model? Some of the wording on their website is not very clear and you may wish to also find out about their warranty claims work as well.

Being a factory direct company would allow them to have reasonable quality componentry at aggressively low market prices. When you are comparing mattresses made by two different manufacturers or sold by different retailers then just like any two businesses that offer similar (but not the same) products ... differences in their raw material or component costs based on the quality or amount of materials, different production costs to make the mattress, different business and infrastructure costs, different business models and margins, different business volumes which can affect the cost of raw materials, the number of "steps" between the suppliers of the raw materials and the sale of the mattress, and the cost of different options they provide before or after a purchase (such as return or exchange options), different pricing policies, different shipping costs, different product or service "bonuses" that are included in a purchase, and any of the other normal differences between any two businesses will all lead to differences in how each business prices its products.

We don’t have much information on this product or company and I’d be interested to learn about your eventual decision and any other relevant information about them that you may come across.

Thanks for the list, Phoenix!

I'm reading through the tutorial which brought me here. Just wondering if there are any places you would add (or remove) from this list since this post is over a year old.

Thank you,

Dean

Hi Dean18.

Welcome to our Mattress Forum ! :) … You are very welcome.

Just wondering if there are any places you would add (or remove) from this list since this post is over a year old.


With the ever-changing landscape of the mattress industry, it would be quite difficult to maintain and keep up to date records of showroom listings or potential retailers/manufacturers in various geographical areas across the US and Canada. This would require periodical reviewing of each retailer/manufacturer already listed and researching for any new entries which would be a full job in itself and is not the focus of our site. As we come across new information we revisit and edit the old listings to add/remove any relevant information. This is a more organic process in which we also encourage consumer feedback to point out new additions, changes, and useful findings. If in your research, you come across something that is missing or has changed please feel free to share it with us and make TMU Forum a more useful resource.

I am a 220 pound male senior with lower back problem looking for a firm twin bed mattress in the Toronto area. I have done a fair amount of research on this site and I think I have a general idea of what I need: something like a natural or blended latex foam mattress with a medium ILD in the comfort layer and a firmer ILD in a Dunlop support layer or layers. I have also come across bio-foam at Foamite and other locations. What they offer at Foamite, for example, is Dunlop comfort layer with a "Koosh" support layer that they say is 60% soy oil. One or two sided in the $1600-1800 range. One question I have is whether the soy oil "green" foam compares in the important areas of quality as Dunlop latex foam. I also would appreciate hearing what other have found in the Toronto area for high quality latex foam mattresses, particularly ones that will provide the maximum support for my lower back. Much appreciated.

Hey rogerholla,

Welcome to the Mattress Forum! :).

Sorry about the bad back, it's also tough to talk about back issues with general salespeople as "back/neck/shoulder issues can be a complicated issue that is specific to an individual.

Foamite is a fabricator, not a foam producer. They distribute many grades of high-quality poly foam materials. There is more about foams containing polyols derived from soy in post #2 here (polyfoam or memory foam wouldn’t be considered a “natural” material). Foamite’s Koosh natural soy-based foam is simply categorized as a polyfoam or a memory foam. This article about soy-based poly is also well worth reading.

The 60% number is misleading, of course, but a salesperson would use the marketing that Koosh uses:

60% less petro-chemicals, 100% more natural



This is easy to say as no baseline data is given? 60% less than what? 100% more natural could be increased from 5% to 10%?

If you would like to compare a Koosh topper to a latex topper it would be all the different articles regarding the comparisons between Latex and memory foam. Or the pro's and con's articles about memory foam and latex. . And you can also check out the durability guidelines to compare the different technologies and how they work with your BMI.

You can search other threads for retailers in Toronto, I also highly recommend you contact one of our trusted members . You can see contact info for two Canadian members, Memory Foam Comfort or Dormio Organic Beds , both of which have deep experience and understanding of any type of foam mattress.

Thanks again, and please let us know if you have other questions.

Hi rogerhola
take a look at our profile here on TMU as well as our website www.swissdreambeds.com It seems to me that our beds may be matching your description of:
medium comfort layer / firm support layer / high quality latex foam / designed for lower back pain cases. And we have a showroom in South Etobicoke that you can visit by appointment.

HI Rogerholla, It sounds like you are on the right track with your idea of ILD and layering. Remember to keep the type of cover in mind as well. An Organic Cotton with 4 way stretch will cause you body to interact with the latex differently in comparison to an Organic Canvas with no stretch. One or the other might be better for you depending on body layout.
