Eve vs Simba Mattress Review

Last updated:

I have received a few emails from readers asking me to do some mattress comparisons between popular brands. It’s a really good point and I liked this idea too. So I decided to write a mattress review comparison that will look at Eve vs Simba. They are both established in the market and they are made with high-quality materials. It would be interesting though to explore what are their differences and which one is better for your needs.

I am sure you all wonder already how this head-to-head will play out! It’s time then to move to the detailed Eve vs Simba comparison.

Materials Comparison

eve vs simba materials

Eve and Simba are quite different in the way they are constructed. The former is a foam mattress while the latter is a hybrid one.

Eve

Eve is a memory foam mattress and is made of 3 layers. At the top, there is a memory foam layer that is there to provide you with all the needed support and comfort. In the middle, there is a cooling foam layer that is responsible to keep the mattress cool during the night. Finally, at the bottom, there is a supportive base layer that works as the base of the Eve mattress.

Simba

Simba, on the other hand, is a hybrid mattress. This means that it combines memory foam technology with pocket springs. The Simba mattress features a total of 4 layers. At the top, there is a Simbatex foam layer. This provides your body with comfort and support. In the middle, there are the conical pocket springs that work individually and adjust to your body’s movements. Below the springs there is a memory foam layer that is there to help with pressure relief and comfort. Finally, at the bottom, there is a supportive base layer that holds the mattress altogether.

Verdict – Both mattresses use very high-quality materials and if you consider the price tags you definitely get a great value with either of them. This is the benefit of buying from companies that have cut the middlemen and sell directly to their consumers. I will call this a tie.

Cover Comparison

eve vs simba cover

Both companies use polyester to make their covers. That makes them quite similar in feel and touch.

Eve

Eve features a polyester knitted cover that feels quite soft in the touch. It allows airflow and in general, it’s a very breathable surface. The design of the Eve mattress cover is my favourite one. The top is white with the sides being yellow which is the signature Eve colour. The bottom of the cover features an anti-slip surface that is very practical.

Simba

Simba also use polyester to make their covers. The sleeping surface allows airflow which helps the mattress to stay cool during the night. The cover can stretch and feels nice and soft. The design is less funky and more practical featuring a white top and grey sides. Simba have also applied an anti-slip surface at the bottom which is great to see.

Verdict – Both covers are really good and they feature a zip so you can remove them easily. You can machine wash them at a low temperature so they are quite easy to maintain. I will call this a tie.

Firmness & Comfort Comparison

Both mattresses went with the medium-firm approach here. Having said that, Eve is firmer than the Simba mattress and if I use my scale here, Eve would be a 6.7 and Simba would be a 6.5.

Eve

It’s a mattress that will provide your body with great support and comfort. Moreover, my spine alignment was the right one in all sleeping positions. However, I felt that in the side position, sinkage was more than I would want. Other than that, I think that Eve performed really well. The edge support is not bad for a foam mattress which makes it good for couples.

Simba

Simba can also provide your body with the needed support. Furthermore, the mattress did a good job and my spine was aligned properly in every sleeping position. However, in the stomach position, I felt that my hips were not well supported but overall I found it great. Simba has great edge support which is expected from a hybrid mattress. That makes it also good for couples although I feel that Eve has the edge here due to the minimal motion transfer.

Verdict – Both mattresses are great. In my opinion, it’s down to what you need more. Eve is better for couples and those who look for pressure relief. Simba is better for those who want more support.

Which one should I buy?

Finishing this Eve vs Simba mattress comparison I would like to share my final thoughts with you. I really don’t think that one is better than the other and I think both mattresses are great. It’s a matter of taste and needs really when it comes to choosing between the two. They are different in design so they do behave differently.
