EVE sleep pillow and casing

Foam pillows are special and I have always wanted one, but just never got around to switch out my down pillow, until now.

The Full package:

At the a great price you get the Eve foam pillow, duvet (dyne), and the mattress. So I did just that. In addition I decided to get the full bed linen package, the full deal and the real Eve experience. I mean if this is their core business it has to be good.

The Sheets are plain white cotton and looks like hotel sheets. The linen seem is okay and the touch of the material is okay. I don’t think it is as high thread count and soft feel of hotel sheets but it seems okay. I have to try it.

Color of your choice:

There is only white, which means that I will not get more sheets as white is boring. I would not get these sheets for a larger bed either again since white is boring. Picture below does not feature the Eve bed sheet as I am using a jersey stretch sheet instead, I should switch. Just not right today 🙂

But is it any good?

I have to try it for a night or three. Eve recommends 30 days but I am not tormenting myself for 30 days. I am going to return this if it does not fell okay soon or significantly better every day. There is a 30 day trial on the pillow.

EVE mattress return – or mabye later.

Returning the mattress aka Home Trial:

So, I am looking at the order confirmation mail. No plain instructions on how to return the mattress. I now created a simple mail and sent it to hello@sleepeve.no

 

tracking mail
Wrong email. Eve said they will fix it shortly

 

When the mail bounced I got really scared. Is the whole thing a scam?

 

I browsed their web and found the “right address” https://www.sleepeve.no/contact it is hej@sleepeve.no. It is hello in Swedish, but it works. I got a ticket number and now I wait.

The customer service

It is really good. They both replied swiftly on mail and by phone. They did recommend me to try out the bed for 30 days in order for my body to adapt. I am highly sceptical of this. What if I ran a hotel or had visitors over. They would have a bad time on the bed and not get the time to adjust to the bed.

But I have time so why not give it some more days. They give me 100 days and I can sacrifice some days of not great sleep if for some reason my body starts to love this mattress. I am not really buying it at this point but I will go along. Then at least I tried.

 

 

 

 

 

Eve Sleep Mattress – Norway version

You might have seen the ads on Facebook, but you have the same question as everyone else. Is it any good?

I have been looking to buy a new bed for 3 months now. I have been to several bed stores and looked at several beds. I have laid in them for a long time and relaxed in the store.

If Eve can deliver the same quality as a 20.000NOK ($2500) mattress then Eve is cheap. If not you are just fooling your self. When you are investing in a bed then you would want the best mattress at the best price. Emphasis on best mattress.

So how is Eve?

Delivery:

It was delivered two days early. That is good (and bad). They just ring the bell and you have to be home and prepared. If you are not then there is lots of logistics around picking it up from the UPS point.

The mattress came in a box that seems like it is too small. It was impossible to take it out from that box. I had to use a heavy duty knife to open the box. Be carefull not to damage the mattress! Also, in Norway we speak Norwegian and English. Not German.

The mattress cover is perfectly aligned in the edges, but that is not really a problem.

First impression:

Big mattress, thicker than the IKEA mattress I had. After sleeping on IKEA for more than 8 hours my back would be sore and it is painful. However it is cheap.

Eve is not soft! Not at all. Not compared to my real frame mattress bed. Eve is firm and there is a hint of memory foam as you sink in. I like soft beds and I was very disappointed. Eve is among the firmer foam mattresses.

The first night:

Tomorrow I will write more about the first night of sleep.

However, I am sceptical. My first impression is not good at all. I like soft mattresses and I expect to be disappointed.
