The Zotto Mattress: In-Depth Review

About Zotto

Zotto was kickstarted in 2015 by two friends who had created a mattress designed specifically for those who suffer from back pain and overheating.

Pat and Shawn spent many years researching and designing their dynamic support system which they say is a one size fits all product.

At Zotto, they truly believe they have perfected sleep. As we get into the details of the Zotto you will see it isn’t just a memory foam mattress, it’s an innovative merging of sleep technology that delivers unmatched pressure point relief and temperature regulation.

Not to mention extreme comfort. Just as their friends and family fell in love with the first Zotto prototypes, Pat and Shawn are sure you will do the same.

Materials and Structure

The Zotto is a 10-inch bed-in-a-box made with four unique layers of specially designed foam.

We’ll go through the layers one at a time but first, let us start with the cover. The cover of the Zotto is made up of a polyester and rayon blend. Their cover is a bit thicker than usual but it offers a nice cozy soft feel. It is also removable, which helps with maintenance and cleaning.

Thermaphase Comfort Layer – The top comfort layer is made of 2-inch gel-infused memory foam.

Zotto considers this their hybrid layer which not only contours nicely to the body but also regulates body temperature. This top layer has a slow response to pressure that allows for some nice sinkage and some immediate pressure relief.

The second aspect of this hybrid foam is the gel infusion that helps to draw heat out of the material and disperse it through the bed.

Support Layer – Following the comfort layer is 2 more inches of CoolFlow memory foam.

Much like the top layer, this memory foam also has a slow response to pressure and offers even more sinkage into the mattress. In addition to this, it also has an open-cell structure made with special cooling features, which help to ensure a cool night sleep.

Transition Layer – The next layer down is Zotto’s own Springtex foam, which is a polyfoam that has a quick response to pressure. With 4 inches of soft memory foam above, this layer provides some bounce, prevents sinking, and works as a transition between the top layers and the foam base.

Base Layer – The foundation is made with 4 inches of high-density polyfoam. As usual with most foam mattresses, this layer gives the bed most of its structure and shape.

The denseness of this final layer acts as the main foundation and support but also ensures an increased mattress life.

Motion Transfer

If you share your bed with a partner, it can be important to understand how much their movement might affect you.

As a full foam mattress, the Zotto does a decent job with motion isolation. The top 4 inches of slow response comfort foam absorbs the majority of movements.

Although, there may be some slight vibration felt under certain circumstances, we don’t believe it is enough to disturb a sleeping partner.

Cost and Value

When it comes to price, the Zotto mattress falls in line with most of its competitors.

To help encourage the prospected buyer Zotto also offers a 100-night risk-free trial.

If you are not completely satisfied with the Zotto simply call for a full refund and to schedule the free pick-up. Additionally, Zotto also sells every mattress with an accompanying 10-year warranty.

Unfortunately, Zotto is one of the only companies we have seen that doesn’t offer some type of financing.

That means if you want the Zotto you must go completely out of pocket for it. For more detailed information on the pricing and size options of the Nuvanna, check out our price points chart.

Durability and Maintenance

The durability of a foam mattress is normally established by its foam density. When looking at the Zotto there is no reason for concern as their foams all fall in the expected range of density for a mattress of this quality and price.

Also, Zotto stands behind their product with a 10-year warranty, guaranteeing its workmanship and quality.

Maintenance of the Zotto is very minimal, no flipping or rotating required.

However, if you sleep alone or if you substantially outweigh your partner, it’s always a good idea to rotate your mattress every 3-6 months to promote even wear.

Zotto also warns that though using a mattress protector will help prolong the life of the mattress, it may also inhibit some features of the mattress.


Firmness and Sinkage

The Zotto is offered in one firmness which has been independently rated a medium-firm, coming in at 6 on a firmness scale from 1(softest) to 10(hardest). The top comfort layers offer 4 inches of sinking relief that contour and mold around the user’s body. Although there is some nice sinkage, the third and fourth layers do their job nicely and create nice buoyancy which prevents the user from feeling stuck in the mattress. The Zotto is best for those who would rather sleep “in” the mattress as opposed to “on” it.

Edge support can often be a problem with foam mattresses, however, the Zotto does a nice job at supporting the user even on the edge. If you share the bed with a sleeping partner knowing that you can use the whole surface area can be important.

The Zotto is great for back and side sleepers, while stomach sleepers may find some discomfort due to the mattresses softness.

We know it can be hard to imagine how a mattress might respond while bearing weight. To help, we have added a sinkage test chart to give an idea of how much sinkage can be expected for different weights.

Production and Certifications

Every Zotto mattress is proudly manufactured and produced completely in the United States.

The Zotto is also CertiPUR-US certified. When making foam, normal production tends to use chemicals that can be harmful to someone’s health. To help create a common standard for the foam market CertiPUR-US acts as an independent and accredited testing laboratory. With CertiPUR-US certification, you can be sure your foam product has been manufactured without ozone-depleting chemicals, without PBDE flame retardants(known to be toxic), without Mercury, lead or other heavy metals, without formaldehyde, without phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. It also has low VOC (volatile organic compound) emission for indoor air quality.

Off-gassing is when a chemical odor remains after unpacking and can be common especially with memory foam mattress. Off-gassing can be a common concern with foam mattresses and as a complete foam mattress the Zotto does have the potential for some off-gassing, however, it should air out within a few days.

Is Zotto Right For You?

Now that we have taken an in-depth look at some of the key aspects of the Zotto, let’s see if it might be the right mattress for you. To help with the process of deciding we will give a few highlighted recommendations.

Firstly, we can recommend the Zotto to anyone who is searching for that traditional memory foam feel.

The 4 inches of comfort foam is really felt, especially as it contours and molds to the user’s body. In addition to its contour, the Zotto also has some nice sinkage which also adds to that traditional feel.

Secondly, if you love the traditional memory foam feel but hate its notorious heat retention, the Zotto may be for you.

The gel and open cell foam used in the top comfort layers does a great job in absorbing body heat and dispersing it away while you sleep.

Lastly, we want to recommend the Zotto for anyone who prefers sleeping on their side. While the Zotto is also good for those who prefer their backs, it is best for those who usually sleep on the side.

The top 4 inches of comfort foam offers immediate pressure relief for the shoulder and hip area, which makes the Zotto ideal for all you side sleepers.
