Milliard Memory Foam Mattress Review – 10 Inch Firm Classic Twin

I wasn’t able to find much feedback online for the 10 inch twin size version of this Milliard memory foam mattress at the time of writing.

So I’ve decided to put together this full Milliard memory foam mattress review to help give you a better idea of how this mattress is likely to feel based on my own knowledge of how mattresses tend to perform based on their individual qualities.

These are of course just my opinions and mattress buying is a highly subjective experience but I hope my insights will help give you some clarity.

And as always, if you have any experience sleeping on this mattress then please leave your thoughts and feedback in the comments section at the end of this post to improve this review and help other prospective customers. 🙂

Milliard Memory Foam Mattress Review

To give you a brief summary of my findings, I would say that the 10 inch twin version of this Milliard memory foam mattress is best suited to front sleepers in the 130 lbs – 230 lbs weight range and 100 lbs – 250 lbs back sleepers – whilst side sleepers will probably find this mattress to be too firm on their hips and shoulders.

Check out my full Milliard memory foam mattress review below for a full breakdown plus the pros and cons.

Design Analysis

This is a 10 inch all-foam mattress that’s comprised of a 2.5 inch memory foam comfort layer and a 7.5 inch high density foam base layer – all topped with a removable and machine-washable cover.

The foams are CertiPUR-US® certified which means that they are low in the VOCs that often lead to that unpleasant ‘new’ smell upon unboxing a compressed mattress like this – as well as ensuring that the mattress is free from harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, mercury, lead, and other heavy metals [1].

This mattress is also free from fiberglass and instead uses an inner cotton rib cover to provide a chemical-free fire safety barrier.

This is great news because I know that some other mattress companies have experienced complaints from customers who have opened their mattress cover only to be showered with a plume of fiberglass that’s caused respiratory irritation.

Here’s a closer look at the individual mattress layers.

1) Cover

This mattress has a soft and stretchy non-slip cover that you’ll be pleased to hear is removable and machine washable – which makes cleaning and care a lot easier.

2) Comfort Layer

The comfort layer of a mattress is responsible for cradling your body, distributing your body weight evenly, and providing pressure relief on the most angular areas of your body to ensure that you remain comfortable in a range of sleeping positions.

And the comfort layer for this Milliard mattress is comprised of 2.5 inches of memory foam that’s designed to respond to your exact body shape to provide a level of comfort that goes beyond that of a regular innerspring mattress.

However, the exact degree of comfort that you’ll experience will depend on your dominant sleeping position and body weight – which I’ll discuss further in the comfort analysis section below.

3) Support Core

Unlike a regular innerspring or hybrid mattress, the support core for the Milliard consists of 7.5 inches of high density base foam.

This foam is harder to compress than the upper comfort layer – so that it can support your body weight more effectively to stop you sinking too far into the mattress.

However, there’s some ‘give’ to this high density foam so that it can adjust to your body type more closely to provide support for your spine and joints.

Performance Analysis

To summarise, I think that the Milliard 10 inch twin memory foam mattress excels in providing pressure relief for single front and back sleepers whilst guarding against allergies like hay fever.

But with this being a twin, this mattress is unsuitable for couples and I don’t think that the edge support is the best – so you might want to look for a full, queen, king or California king version of this mattress if you need more lateral space.

1) Firmness

This is a firm mattress.

Which means that when you lie on the mattress you’ll feel a degree of resistance that stops you sinking as far into the materials as you would if the mattress was softer – although the heavier you are the less resistance you’ll feel.

This greater ‘surface tension’ means that if you’re a front or back sleeper this mattress will help to keep your hips properly aligned to guard against back pain.

2) Support

I personally think that the spinal and joint support for this mattress is quite good if you’re under 230 lbs because the comfort layers, high density support core, and firmer surface tension combine to guard against sinkage and keep everything correctly aligned.

But if you weigh more than this then you may not experience sufficient support – especially if you’re a stomach sleeper – because the all-foam design will likely sink under the greater downward force more when compared to a 10 inch mattress with springs in it such as the Nod Hybrid.

3) Pressure Relief

I think that the Milliard excels in terms of relieving pressure on the more angular areas of your body thanks to its all-foam design and contouring memory foam comfort layer.

However, I would say that front and back sleepers will benefit the most from the pressure relief since the firmer bias may cause some discomfort when sleeping on your side.

This could be especially true if you’re a lighter side sleeper under 130 lbs with a ‘bony’ body type because the increased surface tension may exacerbate your natural tendency to float on top of the materials – which inhibits the memory foam’s ability to take away the pressure on your shoulders, hips, and knees.

4) Moving Around

If you weigh less than 230 lbs then moving around and sitting up in this mattress should be pretty easy despite the all-foam design because of the increased surface tension.

However, with this being a twin mattress, you’re not going to have a massive amount of room to move around laterally.

5) Noise

If you’re a light sleeper that gets woken up easily then this could be a good mattress for you because the all-foam design means that it should be very quiet due to the complete absence of any springs.

However, just be aware that if you have a squeaky bed frame then the 10 inch profile will probably do little to stop more vigorous movements being transferred to the base – possibly resulting in noise.

To fix this, you might want to check out my guide to fixing a squeaky bed.

Alternatively, you might need a new frame and getting a thicker mattress might be better for you overall because they can absorb motion better than thinner mattresses.

Check out some of these Simmons mattresses – because some of the models in their Black and Silver ranges are up to 16 inches thick and come in a range of firmnesses that can suit front, back, and side sleepers.

6) Maximum Weight Capacity

The maximum weight capacity for this mattress isn’t clear but with it being an all-foam twin, I expect this to fall somewhere in the 250 – 300 lbs range.

7) Couples

This mattress isn’t suitable for couples because it’s only 38 inches across – you’ll need a full, queen, king or California king if you need to sleep two people (or want more room for yourself!).

8) Edge Support

I don’t think that this mattress comes with additional edge support so you’ll need to take care if you’re a heavier weighted sleeper and/or an edge sleeper since the all-foam design makes edge sinkage a real risk.

9) Allergies

If you have allergies like hay fever or react to dust then this could be a good mattress for you because in addition to the all-foam design which means pollen and dust mites are going to have a hard time embedding themselves in the materials, the mattress is specifically listed as being hypoallergenic – which means that the foams used are less likely to cause skin irritation and breathing problems.

10) Temperature Regulation

If you are a hot sleeper or live in a warm climate then I don’t think that this is the best mattress for you because memory foam tends to retain heat and I don’t think any cooling gel or air channels have been added to combat this.

But if you’re a temperate sleeper you’ll probably be ok – especially if you have a set of high quality cooling bed sheets.

11) Keeping You Dry

Again, I don’t think this mattress does anything special in terms of being able to wick away moisture to keep you dry.

So if you have issues with sweating at night then make sure that your cooling bed sheets are made from bamboo because bamboo is great at helping to not just absorb moisture but also push it away to the edge of the material where it can evaporate.

12) Odour

This mattress may emit a slight ‘new’ smell after you’ve unboxed it due to the particles that were trapped in packing escaping.

However, this should be less when compared to some other mattresses-in-a-box because it contains low VOCs – which are chiefly responsible for this off gassing effect.

13) Pain Management

The firmer nature of this mattress makes it a potentially very good selection for managing pain in the front and back sleeping positions.

However, these same qualities mean that you may actually see an increase in discomfort if you’re a side sleeper.

14) Cleaning and Maintenance

I think that it’s really annoying when you can’t remove a mattress cover because it makes it harder to clean and maintain the mattress.

Thankfully however, this mattress cover is fully removable and you can wash it in the machine too.

However, you might still want to invest in a mattress protector and I’d also use a high quality fitted sheet to act as an additional barrier for easier cleaning.

Comfort Analysis

To summarise, I think that the 10 inch twin version of this Milliard memory foam mattress is best suited to front and back sleepers, whilst side sleepers may not find the firmness comfortable.

See below for more specific weight range and position breakdowns.

1) Front Sleepers

I think that if you’re a front sleeper in the 130 lbs – 230 lbs weight range then the support and comfort levels will be adequate.

If you’re lighter than this then the mattress may feel a little bit too firm, whilst being significantly heavier puts you at risk of sinking through the relatively thin 2.5 inch comfort layer and touching the high density support core which will probably be uncomfortable for you.

2) Back Sleepers

It’s a similar story for back sleepers but I would estimate the ideal weight range to be around 100 lbs – 250 lbs because sleeping on your back tends to be less precarious in terms of avoiding back and neck pain because your hips and neck are naturally in a more stable position.

3) Side Sleepers

I don’t think that this is the best mattress for side sleepers due to the firmer feel overall, and I’d expect discomfort below the 130 lbs mark in this position due to the amount of pressure that’s naturally being applied to your shoulders, hips, and knees.

Check out my list of the best mattresses for side sleepers for some softer alternatives that may be more comfortable for you.

4) Combo Sleepers

If you’re a combo sleeper under 230 lbs then you should be able to switch between positions quite easily due to the increased surface tension, although the all-foam design may begin to work against you if you’re heavier than this due to the increased downward pressure.

5) Edge Sleepers

I don’t think that this mattress is the best option if you’re the kind of sleeper that hugs the edge of the bed due to the possible lack of edge support – which is often a problem with all-foam mattresses.

However, if you’re on the lighter side then this might not be as much of a problem but it almost certainly will be if you’re over 230 lbs in my opinion.

How Durable is This Mattress?

I think that this mattress is fairly durable because it’s on the firmer side and the denser support layer accounts for 75% of the mattress depth – since dropping below a 50% ratio is reflective of a less durable mattress as a rule.

However, I don’t think that this mattress will be as durable as a high quality hybrid mattress because the springs typically provide more support.

Personally, I would estimate the lifespan of this mattress to be somewhere in the 6-8 year range with proper care but this is by no means completely accurate because there are many other variables at play such as your body weight, the integrity of the individual mattress construction, and how well you look after the mattress.

Will This Mattress Sag?

Unless you are over 250 lbs, I wouldn’t expect this mattress to sag prematurely – although the all-foam design does make it more susceptible to sagging and indenting when compared to spring and hybrid mattresses as a general rule.

How Good is the Motion Isolation?

The motion isolation for this mattress is pretty good because the foam absorbs movement better than spring mattresses tend to do.

But since this bed can only sleep one person it doesn’t really matter.

Will This Mattress Make a Noise?

Unless the frame that you’re using is noisy then this mattress should be very quiet because it doesn’t contain any springs.

Which Frames Are Compatible With This Mattress?

This mattress should be ok with the most common base types such as platform or slatted and even adjustable frames too.

But be warned if you’re planning on plonking this mattress on your floor.

Because the 10 inch profile may increase the firmness even more on such a hard surface that has less give to it than a suitable frame – mattresses should be at least 12 inches thick for floor use in my opinion to avoid making the mattress feel too firm.

And I would double check that the 75” x 38” x 10” dimensions of this twin mattress are compatible with the dimensions of your existing frame to avoid issues.

Does This Mattress Arrive in a Compressed Box?

Yes.

This mattress will arrive at your door rolled up and compressed into a box that should be easier to carry to your room than a fully expanded mattress – but you may still need to enlist the help of someone else to help you move the box in some cases due to its weight.

When you cut open the box make sure that there are no pets or children around because these types of rolled up mattresses tend to spring to life quite forcefully!

Place the mattress on your bed frame and cut away the packaging carefully – the mattress will then begin to expand to its full size.

Full decompression may take up to 72 hours but you should be able to sleep on the mattress with a few hours.

I always recommend that you avoid leaving your mattress compressed in the box for any length of time because I’ve found that this can inhibit maximum expansion in some very rare cases.

Can You Flip This Mattress?

No.

Since you’d end up sleeping on the firmer base foam which is likely going to be very uncomfortable.

Is There a Sleep Trial?

I think that there’s a 30 day return policy in place if you order via their website (but you have to send the mattress back with its original packaging) and this may vary if you order from a different retailer.

Is There a Warranty?

I wasn’t able to find any information about a warranty applying to this mattress unfortunately.

Pros

  • Should provide good comfort and support for back sleepers in the 100 lbs – 250 lbs range and for front sleepers in the 130 lbs – 230 lbs range.
  • Doesn’t contain fiberglass – a potential respiratory irritant found in some other mattresses.
  • The cover is removable and machine washable to make cleaning and maintenance easier.
  • The memory foam layers provide pressure relief and contour to your body well in the front and back sleeping positions for greater comfort when compared to a regular spring mattress.
  • Good support for your spine and joints via the foam support core.
  • Quite durable for an all-foam mattress because the high density support foam takes up 75% of the total mattress depth.
  • The firmer bias means that moving around in the mattress should be no problem if you’re under 230 lbs.
  • Hypoallergenic to guard against skin irritation and naturally repels dust mites and pollen to lower the trigger risk if you have respiratory allergies.
  • Very quiet due to the all foam design.
  • Arrives in a compressed box for easier transportation.

Cons

  • Unsuitable for couples in the twin size – look for full, queen, king, and Cal. king sizes if greater lateral space is a requirement.
  • Side sleepers will probably find this mattress to be too firm.
  • Not the best edge support – making it a poor choice if you’re an edge sleeper.
  • May sleep hot due to the inclusion of memory foam that doesn’t appear to have any counteractive cooling properties such as infused gel or corrugated foam layers.

  1. Good information, you really can’t find that much info on this mattress. I’m expecting one to arrive tomorrow, I just heard back from the Amazon seller about the Warranty, many of these foam mattresses offer a 10-year warranty, this is what I was told. How would you feel about this, should I just send it back?

    “Hi,

    We have no official warranty. We do stand behind our products for a year,

    Best,
    Leah “

    • Hey Scott, I’m glad that you found the review useful, and thanks for letting me know about their warranty – or lack of.

      Whilst I wouldn’t necessarily send it back on this basis alone, it does concern me that they don’t offer an official warranty – 10 years is typically the industry standard and I wouldn’t really be happy with anything less than 5 myself.

      I feel that this is especially important when it comes to all-foam mattresses with a memory foam top because they are likely the most at risk of sagging and indentations – compared to high quality spring or hybrid mattresses with a coiled core.

      Can you keep me updated on whatever you decide to do – and if you do sleep on it how it feels etc?

      Many thanks,
      Dan
