IKEA Morgedal Mattress Review
The Morgedal mattress is a 6.25″ foam and constructed from two layers of foam.
Top layer – this layer is designed from a 3.75″ layer of polyurethane foam with a density of 2.2 PCF (pounds per cubic foot). This layer will provide you softness and pressure relief.

The Morgedal mattress’s cover is made of a combination of cotton (36%) and polyester (64%). The benefits of this combination are included softness, breathability and durability. In addition, the cover is designed to be fairly thin, making sleepers feel the top layer underneath easily.
As aesthetic speaking, the cover looks nice in white. Along with that, the side panels comes in grey tone. This contrastive tone is very popular among online mattresses. Plus, it has handles on the sides, making it handier when moving the mattress.
Firmness Feel, Support and Others
If we rate 10 as the firmest level of firmness scale, Morgedal comes as 8.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale. It means it is pretty firm. This makes it ideal for stomach sleepers. However, this is not a good mattress for deep compression support. Due to this issue, heavy sleepers may not find enough support when sleeping on this mattress.
In addition, in terms of bounce, the poly foam used for the top perform well for providing bounce. Especially, it is better than memory foam mattresses. Along with this, the pretty firm level allows it to have little sinkage.
