Blello focuses entirely on achieving an ideal feeling foam mattress that will hit your

About the Company
The makers of Blello have around 20 years of experience in the furniture industry. They began by selling spring mattresses in their small brick and mortar store, and since then, they have grown as a company and have capitalized on that experience. Now, they have started selling directly to consumers.
Additionally, they have a clean track-record and seem to display some generosity. For every mattress that Blello sells, a portion of their profits are donated to the “Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay”.

About the Mattress Cover
The mattress cover of the Blello incorporates a 3-layer fabric which is devised to enhance the breathability of the mattress. The combination of the yarns and the fabric textures is what amounts to the cover’s stretchable surface. Additionally, this cover hugs the mattress very well and is light and airy.
Underneath the Mattress Cover
Underneath the mattress cover lies three foam layers. The first layer is a 1.5-inch thick Serene Foam. Serene Foam is what contributes to Blello’s uniqueness, and this foam serves as an alternative to the conventional memory foam. Memory foam is notorious for heat retention; thus, Blello chose to use a heat dissipating alternative. The second layer is 2.5 inches worth of comfort foam. Blello utilizes Qualatex Foam to create this layer. Qualatex Foam offers a layer of support as well as reduced compression, creating an optimal experience for sleepers. The final layer is 6 inches worth of support foam. A supportive poly-foam that has high density comprises the base of the mattress and assures that the mattress will have not only longevity but also long-term support.
How comfortable is the Mattress?
Blello takes great pride in itself on how it has the “ideal perfect medium-firm feel”. Over the course of countless hours of product testing, the comfort and firmness of this mattress have been tweaked and perfected. The goal was to produce a mattress that is soft enough to cradle your body in any position, yet still, offer the necessary amount of support needed for the proper alignment of the spine. On a firmness scale of 1-10, this mattress scores anywhere between a 5 and a 7, depending on your sleeping preference as well as your size.
Needless to say, the comfort of this mattress could be described as “well-balanced”. The combination of all the different foams collaborates nicely to create a pressure relieving surface which evenly distributes all of your body weight.
Since this mattress is made up entirely of foam, it will do an excellent job at minimizing any motion transfer that may occur, essentially ceasing any disturbance you may experience from your partner. The several layers of dense and absorbing foams isolate motion quite easily; thus, even the lightest sleeper will have no issues whatsoever with this bed. The several layers have a wide variety of qualities that combine to form a comfortable surface that also generates the necessary benefits for anyone who shares their bed.
Does the Mattress Sleep Hot?
Based on my experience with the mattress, I didn’t notice any heat retention at all. This is because Blello does not use heat retaining memory foam amongst any of the mattresses many layers. Although many benefits of this mattress are very similar to memory foam, the most significant difference here may be that the Serene foam used in this mattress doesn’t retain heat as traditional memory foam does. It is designed to contour to the shape of your body while releasing heat as opposed to preserving it, causing the layer directly below you to be cooler than memory foam would.
Blello has taken many measures to ensure that this mattress sleeps cooler than any other memory foam mattress out there; however, this mattress is still an all foam mattress with no place for any heat that has been retained to go. This mattress will sleep cooler than most foam mattresses, but it is guaranteed that it will still sleep warmer than other hybrid or coiled mattress alternatives.
Anyone who shares their bed along with a partner understands what it is like to need the entire surface area of their mattress in order to get a good night’s sleep. This is why a feature such as “edge support” is so crucial. The edge support on this mattress is very consistent and creates a surface area that is fully usable. Since the layers of foam used within this mattress are dense and durable, it ensures that every inch of this mattress is available for sleeping. There should be little change in support as you move from the center of the bed to the edge of the bed and vice versa, making this bed fantastic at distributing all of your weight evenly and maintaining its feel throughout the night.
Sleeping on the edges is perfectly fine; however, I highly recommend to minimize the number of times that you sit on the side of the bed. When you are sitting as opposed to sleeping, you are concentrating more of your weight onto one small spot, and eventually, the foam will begin to break down over time.
Purchasing this mattress is virtually risk-free, being that Blello offers customers a 100- night free-trial period. If you happen to have any uncertainties with buying this mattress, bare in mind that you have 100 days to try the mattress before deciding if you want to return it or not. There is, however, a 30 day period that you have to wait before returning the mattress, but this is a fairly common rule. The reason being is because it takes at least 30 days for your body to adjust to the feel of the bed. As long as you place your request for a return anytime between 31-100 days, you should be able to receive a full refund.
Along with the free trial period, Blello also offers a generous 10-year warranty. If you notice any defects that prevent the mattress from performing up to parr, any issues will be resolved under this standard warranty. Blello makes certain that their products will perform as intended and if it does not, they are more than happy to help with making sure your mattress is at its best.
Does the Mattress have a Smell?
Mattresses will often have a slight smell after they are taken out of the compressed packaging. This phenomenon is known as “off-gassing” and is often compared with the “new car smell”. Once you open your mattress, I suggest allowing it to breathe before using it. This will eliminate a majority of the scent. Typically, I notice the odor to have almost completely vanished within 24 hours or so. Luckily, with the Blello, I didn’t notice a strong smell, so off-gassing was not much of an issue in this scenario.
Considering the very high-quality of the mattress, the Blello comes in at a very reasonable price point of just $875 for a queen mattress.
In addition to the price of the mattress being very reasonable, it also comes with free shipping. As mentioned earlier, the mattress comes with a 100-night free-trial period as well as a 10-year warranty. If you happen to be on the search for an ideal feeling all foam mattress with a medium-firm feel, then the Blello is a mattress that could be of great value to you.

When I tested the mattresses out for myself, not once did I notice it sleep hot, and I also felt that the mattress was very comfortable throughout my entire trial.
