Overview: The Bear Original Bear In Bed Song
Bear Original is an all-foam mattress that provides comfort and relief for active people. It is a vital mattress with important properties such as the gel-infused memory foam top layer that cushions the body’s pressure points and keeps it relaxed. Not only does it make the sleeper comfortable, but it also includes Bear’s signature open-cell response properties designed to increase airflow throughout it. Celliant fabric, a state-of the-art Celliant cover for the mattress, is strong enough to keep the body from overheating.
The Bear Original is a bed in a box product that offers medium-firm comfort. Medium-firm mattresses, regardless of type and construction, are preferred by most sleepers, although what makes this one unique is its slightly bouncy feel. The Bear mattress is one the most popular products from the company named after it. It was created in 2014 with the sole purpose of making bed apparatus that can be used by athletes, first responders, frontline workers, and others who have a proactive way of living.
Who are the ideal users of the Bear Original?
- For those who want an all-foam mattress at an affordable price
- People who like to sleep on memory foam, but aren’t averse to the sinking sensation associated with it
- Those who sleep hot, especially after a full day of work or intensive activity
- Back sleepers who prefer a mattress that is firm, supportive, and can alleviate pressure points
- Couples sharing a bed with someone who is restless at night or who doesn’t want any disturbances may have a problem.
Who shouldn’t use Bear Original?
- For those who want a more bouncier bed, all-foam mattresses (including the Bear Original) are known for being not too springy.
- People who appreciate beds with stable edges support may be interested in these beds.
- Lightweight side sleepers who may find this mattress to be too firm
- This may be too soft for average-weight stomach sleepers.
- Heavyweights who prefer to sleep flat, on their stomachs or backs, are called heavyweights
How Does the Bear Original Feel?
Is it going to give you the relief that you need from your aches and pains? How deep will it sink your body to? Is it as cool as the makers behind it claim to be? These are the pressing questions we wanted to answer. We tested the Bear mattress for firmness, pressure relief, and cooling abilities.
We use a scale of 1-10 to rank mattresses. One is super soft, five are medium and ten are extremely firm. We can confidently state that the Bear Original’s comfort level is medium to firm based on what we discovered while testing it. 7 to be exact.
Bear has stated that its mattress is medium-firm. The overall construction is still sturdy and stable despite the fact that memory foam has been praised for its ability to sink into the body. Bear Original features a thick layer high-density foam as the foundation. This material is solid and not as flexible as spring coils.
This mattress has more benefits by having the material underneath the memory foam. The top layer may be pliable enough to shape the sleeper’s silhouette, but, thankfully, it’s countered by a more rigid foundation underneath, creating what appears to be a perfect balance. While we have experienced many issues with memory foam mattresses, this one was not. The Bear made us feel like we were sleeping ‘on’ the surface rather than ‘into’ it.

The Bear Original combines the softness and strength of high-density foam with the flexibility of memory foam to create a balanced mattress. As a result, it can provide adequate pressure relief that most sleepers may enjoy. No pressure buildup was observed in the heat map tests, regardless of what type of sleep position.
While we admire its remarkable pain relief capabilities, we should mention that they’re only limited to a group of people. Average-weighted people, in particular, may find the Bear mattress to be much more suited to their needs. For heavyweights and lightweights, the experience may vary – some may feel more firm whenever they sleep on the sides, while others may feel too much pressure that it leans more towards discomfort.

The Bear mattress is made up of open-cell foam, gel fusion and Celliant fabric. This combination helps to keep the body from overheating. All-foam mattresses may be known for not having the best insulation, but this one performed surprisingly well in maintaining the temperature, at least to a neutral level – not too hot yet not too cold.
Although we cannot guarantee that the Bear Original will have the same cooling properties of an innerspring or hybrid mattress as other mattresses, the three insulation features can be enough to soothe anyone after a long day. They are also sufficient to prevent the couple from becoming too hot – two people can heat up on the mattress faster than one. If you’re in a relationship and looking for an affordable all-foam cooling bed, you may want to try the Bear mattress!
Analyse of Sleep and Body Type
How will the Bear mattress provide much-needed comfort for light, average and heavy sleepers?
The Bear Original is tested in various sleeping positions
On the Back
The Bear Original has proven yet again in providing the best back relief for most sleepers. This mattress is suitable for light-weight people. It has a healthy mix of support and conformity to help them feel comfortable while lying flat. Those of average weight will appreciate it even more as it gives them the best-optimized care they truly deserve.
In the case of heavyweight sleepers, however, the Bear may not work well in their favor. They shouldn’t expect the all-foam mattress to conform to their bodies like their lighter- or average-weight counterparts. It usually ends up in sinkage, which doesn’t sound nice especially if you move often. We also noticed on the heatmap that the pressure points were higher then the rest.
On the Stomach
While the Bear delivers remarkable benefits to most back sleepers, stomach sleeping is different. Some may get a collectively positive experience while sleeping flat on the stomach, while others may find the surface too soft to provide pressure relief on the hips and keep their spine in alignment.
Both light- and average-weighted persons feel the same way when sleeping in this position. They may initially find the Bear to be supportive enough for their stomachs. But in the long run, since the mattress is all-foam, softness and sinkage may be inevitable, and it’s up to them to adjust. Heavyweights should not sleep on the Bear with their stomachs flat on the ground. They often feel like they are sinking and have more pressure points than if they were sleeping on their backs.

Similar to laying flat on the stomach, how the Bear feels on the person while sleeping on either side will depend on personal circumstances. Some lightweights may find the surface too firm for their liking, while others may receive the pressure relief they need on the shoulders and hips. Average sleepers, meanwhile, would likely say the same thing.
Heavyweights will not appreciate how the Bear feels while sleeping on the side as much as they want. A few of our testers found that while they felt the support and comfort from this mattress, the firmness and sinkage as well as the high-pressure point and high-pressure point far outweigh the pros.
Combination sleeping positions
Regardless of body weight, we found that the Bear Original should work okay with most individuals who usually sleep in a combination of positions. According to our tests, the Bear Original was able to provide comfort and relief for all positions. In regards to changing positions, there is a possibility that some sleepers may have slight difficulties in the movement since the mattress, after all, has a top layer of memory foam.
It doesn’t stop there! Aside from the main tests, we also analyzed how well the Bear Original performed in terms of other factors, such as motion transfer, ease of movement, and more. For couples wondering if the mattress will serve them benefits, you should check this one out!
The perfect mattress must have motion isolation to help you sleep and not be disturbed by movements. The Bear’s all foam layers absorb and dampen vibrations. This makes it a superior choice to innerspring mattresses.
Mobility made easy
The Bear’s foam is not as conforming as other mattresses, but it can still provide a floating sensation. The ease of movement for light and average sleepers is 50/50. In the case of the heavy ones, however, they’ll most likely have challenges in maneuvering on the surface.
Edge support is a measure of how strong the bed’s perimeter is in supporting multiple bodies. Mattresses with strong edge support will not have couples or groups worried if one of them suddenly falls off. The Bear was able to maintain adequate stability around its edges, even though it is not as strong than innerspring models.
Memory foam or all-foam mattresses have drawn flak for not being the best beds to use for sexual activity. However, the Bear was more responsive to rapid movements and didn’t conform as well as other foam mattresses. Therefore, we conclude that it performs well even during sex.
Unboxing and Off Gassing
Because it is a bed-in-a-box mattress, expect the Bear to have an off-gassing and decompression period after you cut open the wrapped packaging. All-foam mattresses have gained a reputation for emitting strong, sometimes unpleasant odors caused by volatile organic compounds (VOC). Bear In Bed Song
The Bear is no different, but since the foam materials used are GreenGuard Gold and CertiPUR-US-certified, the off-gassing smells go away much faster compared to other all-foam beds.
Bear Original mattress measures 10 inches thick. It is made up of three layers of unique foam, each one being a different type.
Top comfort layer – This is the first of three layers. It’s a graphite gel memory foam which provides pressure relief and contouring to the body’s silhouette. With a thickness of 2″, it is also packed with open-cell cooling abilities to regulate the sleeper’s temperature – something traditional memory foam often lacks.
Transitional middle layer – Below the memory foam comfort layer is a transitional response foam that’s also 2″ thick. It is both soft and firm, helping to prevent the body from sinking. The sleeper will feel like they’re laying on top of more than into the surface of the mattress.
Foundation layer – Holding the Bear altogether is a thick high-density support foam. With a height of 6″, it serves as a firm and stable foundation for the sleeper’s body to rest on.

The three layers of the Bear Original are wrapped in a Celliant fabric mattress cover. Celliant fabric is an FDA-approved fiber material that helps speed up recovery time for individuals while they sleep. It also features design elements that improve blood circulation. It is soft to the touch and produces enough airflow to keep the body from overheating. With the right amount of materials formulated for active persons in mind, we can see why the Bear has been advertised as a mattress for athletes and other high-energy professionals.
Prices and sizes
The Bear mattress comes in all sizes and is available at a variety of prices. It’s not a very budget-friendly model by all means, nor a highly expensive one either. Here is a full list of sizes and their corresponding prices offered with the Bear Original:

Final Verdict on the Bear Original Mattress
After going through a series of tests, we can confidently say that the Bear Original packs a punch when it comes to delivering comfort, relief, and peace of mind to those who appreciate it. It’s a solid choice for those who prefer sleeping on a memory foam surface, but also like to move as swiftly as possible. Designed with recovery in mind, it has plenty of features that are enough to attract active individuals who are looking for a mattress that can give them what they need.
While we can admire how well it performs on most sleepers, we shouldn’t overlook the fact that it may not be fully suitable for heavyweight sleepers. After all, many mattresses will always have limits. Nevertheless, with tons of sweet elements packed into a product with a highly valuable price range, the Bear Original mattress is something you should look forward to buying! Bear In Bed Song
