Mattress Review Gel Foam Bed Venus – 14″

Gel Foam Bed is offering a line of very affordable and unique gel infused foam mattresses, including the Gel Foam Bed Venus. These beds use Halcyon foam, a revolutionary high density and low cost foam that outperforms memory foam. It utilizes Supportive Air Technology that increases support while still maintaining plenty of comfort. Halcyon foam is NOT temperature sensitive, like memory foam, and instead releases body heat allowing you to stay cool and dry. It is also more durable, relieves pressure better and costs less.

Each of these beds have a slightly different feel that range between medium-firm, medium-plush and plush. The Venus mattress is the 14″ thick plush option that uses five layers of foam along with a thick quilted cover that has a gel infused foam too. This mattress is the softest option of the line up and would be great for a wide variety of sleepers.

Off Gassing

The very first thing we needed to do with our new Gel Foam Bed Venus Mattress is take it out of the box and get it set up. It should show up right at your door and in a fairly compact box, for a mattress anyway. Getting it to where it needs to go may take two sets of hands. It is about 80 lbs and a little awkward to maneuver if you’re on your own. Once you get it to where you’ll be sleeping it should only take a few minutes to get it out of the box and take it out of the plastic and come to life.

During the unboxing process you will notice a bit of off gassing but it should be very minimal. With most boxed mattresses there will be a little bit of smell once it is allowed to unroll and take shape, but this one is made in the US which helps tremendously with cutting down on any noxious odors. It should be fine within a few hours but if you are more sensitive to certain smells letting it breath up to 12 hours would probably be a good idea.

See how easy the Gel Foam Bed is to set up in our video below.

When setting up your new mattress it will need a foundation that provides a flat, even surface that will support the weight of the mattress as well as the sleepers. It also will need to be the right height for you as well as be aesthetically appealing. Gel Foam Bed also sells box springs and adjustable bases. Otherwise the Triton 10″ mattress would work great on any box spring with or without a frame, an adjustable base, a platform bed or slatted bed.

Comfort

The Gel Foam Bed Venus mattress is an all foam mattress with six layers of foam that create a very plush feeling mattress. This mattress is great for someone who likes their bed on the softer side as well as for someone who likes the feel of gel memory foam.

The top layer of Halcyon foam provides plenty of softness and sink to relieve pressure. There is a lot of cocooning and you definitely will feel very hugged by the memory foam of this bed. This mattress would work best for side sleeper and will provide plenty of nice soft layers with lots of cushion and sink. It may also work fine for a back sleeper who likes more plushness too. However, stomach sleepers and heavier sleepers would not fair well in this bed. It is too soft and has far too much hug to hold up or accommodate their needs.

We found the Venus mattress to be a  fairly comfortable, but very plush feeling bed. On a 1-10 firmness scale it comes in around a 2.5 and, 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest. The support was there but a little minimal. The comfort layers were responsive but very contouring. This mattress is ideal for the side sleeper or back sleeper who likes to be more in the bed than on the bed. Also, the price of this mattress is good for anyone on a budget that wants a very soft, all foam mattress.

Motion Transfer

For the average person who gets up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, feed the baby, etc., your partner should feel minimal to no disruption due to vibrations. The top layer of memory foam along with the dense base foam really cut down on any motion transfer. This mattress is still easy to move on but like any all foam mattress much movement will be quickly absorbed and make sharing a bed easy. Especially if you are a light sleeper or have different sleeping schedule than your partner.

Sleeps Cool

Feeling too warm may be an issue with the Gel Foam Venus mattress. The top layer of Halcyon foam is more responsive, allowing you to move a little easier and not get too stuck in one position. It also does have memory foam that is less temperature sensitive than a traditional memory foam, keeping you more regulated throughout the night. There is also cooling gel added to the memory foam quilted cover too. This layer not only adds a luxurious feel but also helps regulate temperature and dissipate heat. A big however though is that this mattress is on the soft side and you do sink in quite a bit creating more heat retention. If sleeping warm is an issue for you than the medium or medium-firm gel foam bed may be a better choice.

Edge Support

The edge support on the Venus Mattress was better than expected. Especially for an all foam mattress at a lower price point. Because it is thicker mattress and the base foam is more dense this helps the edges of the bed feel more stable too. We found that sitting on the edge there felt like there was a little less support, however we felt that sleeping on the bed allowed us full use of the sleep surface without having the rolling off the edge feel. This factor is especially great if you share a full size or queen size bed with a partner and need to use every inch of the mattress.

Value

The Gel Foam Bed Venus Mattress is an affordable bed and an okay value. A queen size mattress only is regularly $899 and for a quality mattress that includes a quilted memory foam cover, a halcyon foam layer and several other foam layers and a solid core we feel this is a good price. This mattress however, is for someone who likes a soft mattress and doesn’t sleep warm, so if that is you, than this bed is a great deal. This value is even better because you can use the COUPON CODE: OURSLEEPGUIDE for $50 OFF making it ONLY $849! Shop now at GelFoamBeds.com.
