Zoma aims to appeal to athletes and active consumers. But to see if Zoma’s mattresses and pillows live up to their comfort claims, we’re unpacking the company’s products and policies.
We also tapped industry experts to provide insight into the advantages and considerations of each product, including both of the brand’s mattresses and pillows.
Zoma was developed by CEO Firas Kittaneh, and the company’s based out of Scottsdale, Arizona.
Zoma currently offers two mattresses: an all foam and a hybrid.
Foams used in both Zoma mattresses are CertiPUR-US certified to be free of harmful chemicals and low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Zoma provides customers with a 10-year warranty and a 100-night sleep trial for all their products.

- Price: $949 for a queen
- Type: Foam
- Height: 11 inches
- Best for: couples and those who prefer a plush mattress
The Zoma Mattress contains three layers:
- a gel memory foam layer
- a bouncy middle layer
- a sturdy base foam layer
“One of the biggest pros of this mattress is the level of cushioning, which is desirable for many individuals,” says Puja Shah, MD, a pain management specialist and anesthesiologist for DISC Sports & Spine Center. “Sleepers who feel that coils make a mattress too firm will surely enjoy this aspect.”
All-foam mattresses tend to have less motion transfer between partners, sleep expert Leigha Saunders, ND, explains. “If you sleep with a partner who moves around a lot at night, or has a different sleep schedule than you, you may want to consider an all-foam mattress.”
Foam usually traps more heat than their hybrid mattress counterparts, Shah says, making it something to consider if you sleep hot. She added that the advent of gel foam has been an advancement (versus traditional foam) for temperature regulation. This may mean the Zoma all-foam mattress lets many people sleep at a comfortable temperature.
Zoma Hybrid Mattress
- Price: $1,149 for a queen
- Type: Hybrid
- Height: 12 inches
- Best for: People who sleep hot and those who like a mattress with added support
Like the original Zoma Mattress, the Zoma Hybrid Mattress also contains a gel foam layer, a responsive second layer of foam, and a base layer. However, it also utilizes coils, which can provide a stronger and firmer foundation for a mattress, according to Shah.
“Hybrid mattresses can be beneficial for individuals who like a strong structured mattress,” she explains. “In addition, this mattress likely remains cooler than the Zoma Mattress given that the coil aspect will not trap as much heat as foam.”
Saunders adds that since this hybrid mattress utilizes a coil base layer, it’s ideal for those who want a mattress with a bouncy feel, better breathability, and edge support.
“The coils in the Zoma Hybrid mattress provide additional support and airflow, for additional body contouring and stability,” she explains.
While hybrid mattresses do provide contouring and stability to the body, Shah says it may be a bit too firm for those who prefer a mattress that offers a plush sensation.
As well, some shoppers may find the price too steep.
The Sports Pillow
- Price: $75 and $95
- Sizes: 16 x 27 inches (queen) and 16 x 34 inches (king)
- Best for: Those looking for cooling and supportive pillows
The Sports Pillow is made with a knit polyester cover and a mix of polyester and foam fill. Polyester is known for its ability to wick away sweat (hence why active wear is often made with it). Because of these features, Saunders suggests the pillow for sleepers who opt for cooling and supportive products.
“This pillow provides cooling technology to provide heat dissipation,” she says. “Adjustable [shredded foam] also allows you to shape the pillow to support your head and shoulders, while also providing comfort.”
While this pillow claims to cut down on neck pain, Saunders stresses that pillows typically aren’t a quick fix for all pain issues. It’s still important to consult a licensed physician to address any concerns you may have.
“Every person’s anatomy and symptoms vary. The most important aspect would be to provide appropriate posture and cushioning to affected areas, and, as always, allow a health care provider to weigh in for any further questions and concerns tailored to each individual,” she adds.
The Body Pillow
- Price: $120
- Size: 52 x 72 inches
- Best for: Side and stomach sleepers, pregnant women, and those with lower back or hip pain
The Body Pillow contains a shredded gel memory foam and a hypoallergenic down-alternative fill.
Saunders notes, “Sleeping with a body pillow can be especially helpful for side and stomach sleepers, pregnant women, and those with low back or hip pain.”
You can use a body pillow to help “keep your body supported by keeping your spine and hips in a more neutral position. The combination of these factors can help to improve sleeping postures and chronic pain.”
With a price tag over $100, though, this isn’t an inexpensive pillow.
Like many other bed-in-a-box mattresses, Zoma mattresses are compressed and then shipped to you.
Mattresses ship out as quickly as 3–5 business days (excluding major holidays) via FedEx, with curbside delivery. Once shipped, delivery takes approximately 1–5 business days.
Accessories, such as sheets, pillows, and protectors, usually ship within 2–4 business days of ordering via FedEx (with free shipping in the 48 contiguous states). Once shipped, delivery will take approximately 2–5 business days.
Once your order is placed, customers are encouraged to check order details and shipping status by creating an account on the Zoma website. But the company also has a customer service line available for customers who prefer speaking with an agent on the phone.
Setting up Zoma mattresses is a fairly easy process, according to Anastassia, a Zoma customer service representative. Unwrap your mattress from the plastic wrap it is packed in and then cut the vacuum-sealed bag. Most bed-in-a-box companies suggest putting the mattress where you want it before breaking the vacuum seal.
After the mattress is free from its packaging, it may take 4–6 hours for it to fully expand, according to customer service.
To complete your setup, look for a long white paper tag on one end of the mattress. Zoma mattresses don’t have a difference between the head or the foot but, “Customers tend to want to keep that [tag] at the foot [of the bed],” Anastassia explains.
All Zoma products come with a 100-night sleep trial, which allows customers to try them out in the comfort of their own homes.
The brand’s return policy says customers can return products any time within the first 100 nights and receive a full refund.
To complete a return, they ask customers to donate their returned mattress to a charitable organization or donation center (with proof of donation), instead of sending it back.
Zoma is not an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau and does not have a rating or profile at this time. They also do not have a profile on TrustPilot at this time.
The company has not been named in any lawsuits.
This leaves customer reviews on the Zoma website as the main glimpse into the possible benefits and drawbacks of their products and service.
Customer reviews for both mattresses are mostly positive, and typically start at three stars or higher. There’s only a single one-star review concerning comfort, which the brand’s customer service responded to.
Customer reviews for the Zoma Pillow aren’t very different. There is currently only one one-star review concerning thickness of the pillow, which customer service has also responded to.
There currently isn’t review information for the Zoma Body Pillow.
Other mattress considerations
Zoma mattresses are medium in firmness. Wayne Ross, senior researcher in sleep and sleep disorder studies at InsideBedroom, says that “The Zoma gel foam mattress may not be an ideal choice for those who want a super soft or super firm bed, as it’s not firm enough to support the hips. This, in return, could cause back and neck pain.”
At the same time, there are studies that demonstrate that medium-firm foam (including latex) mattresses can provide pain relief.
For example, in a
As promising as this research is, more research on the topic is needed at this time.
The mattress market is constantly growing, allowing for more choice for consumers of all kinds. Zoma, a relatively new brand, adds a focused product line to the mix.
