Juno Mattress Review
Who is the Juno mattress for?
- Lovers of traditional memory foam – The Juno mattress is constructed using the customary combination of memory and high-density polyfoam. There are many who are used to and enjoy the feel this build provides.
- Anyone who is looking for a reliable mattress on a budget – Even though this mattress may not be the most luxurious product on the market, the materials and construction exhibit very reasonable value for money.
- Medium weight back and stomach sleepers – Memory foam combined with polyfoam makes for a very sturdy support system that allows these types of sleepers to lay as flat as possible without any major strain to their posture.
- Couples who need good motion isolation – There are cases with couples where one partner may be prone to waking another’s with their movements during rest. The Juno mattress is quite sufficient at diffusing ripples caused by these types of movements.
- Sleepers looking for a mattress for their adjustable bed base – This mattress has the right balance of flexibility and sturdiness to settle into any position you set it to on most adjustable bed bases.
Who won’t love the Juno mattress?
- Heavier sleepers (250lbs+) – While the Juno mattress does have a relatively sturdy foam build, we foresee it struggling to comfortably house the frames of single sleepers who weigh in excess of the 250lb mark.
- Anyone looking for a mattress that focuses on cooling -The Juno is by no means an overly warm mattress, even as far as memory foam mattresses go. It does not have any layering that is very breathable, nor does it come with any active cooling elements. Sleepers who tend to overheat will probably sleep more comfortably on a cooler mattress than this.

Juno measurements and pricing
Juno mattress performance
The Juno mattress is a simple design that prioritizes accessibility and affordability to its consumers. While the mattress may not be a luxury tier item, it can still provide a pretty high-quality rest to certain sleeper types. The mattress consists of a very simple set of layering which creates a pretty standard but reliable level of firmness and support to most midweight sleeper types. This mattress may not be for users who need some form of specialized comfort in their mattress. If your sleeping needs are basic, this mattress should be able to give you a good night’s rest.
Construction layers and materials used
The layering system used in the Juno mattress’s design is a simple and time-tested one. There are many memory foam mattresses that encompass this same layering system due to its reliability and affordability. Similarly, the materials used in this mattress’s design are selected for the high value they provide at a low manufacturing cost. Below we have laid out a brief breakdown of each element in the Juno’s layering system to help you further understand how this mattress is built.
Polyester VIscose Cover
The cover used in this mattress is quite synthetic but still manages to give the user a somewhat wooly feel against the skin. This cover is not removable or machine washable but it is pretty durable and not prone to overheating. The overall feeling of this cover is quite soft, and it’s pretty much odorless.
The comfort layer in this mattress is about 3’’ thick and is the first level of support that meets the user’s body when they lie down. Goodmorning.com punt this layer as cooling gel foam, but we could not really discern any active cooling properties in the layer itself upon close inspection. Memory foam has been used for nearly a century in mattress designs as it gives the user the feeling of sinking into the surface of the mattress, without being too plush for adequate comfort.
High-Density Polyfoam Support Base
The support base in this mattress is made up of high-density polyfoam. This usually works very well in conjunction with memory foam and enhances the support provided by the initial comfort layer. This layer is the thickest layer used in this design and gives the mattress most of its total height profile.

Juno mattress firmness
Juno mattresses come in just on standard firmness level. The bed is geared toward catering to the needs of sleepers between the weights of 150-250lbs. That means that it is designed with firmness to suit the majority weight class of the population. It sits at just above a neutral firmness on our relative firmness charts. We place it at around a 6/10. This mattress’s firmness should suit most back and stomach sleepers that sit in the above weight class. We actually think that the Juno mattress could have much more traction with its consumer base if it had had either a softer or firmer option on offer.
Have a look at the simple firmness chart we’ve laid out below to help you understand how the Juno mattress scores on our personal firmness charts. Our charts are not definitive and should only serve as a simple guideline to help you better understand our reviews.
MATTRESS FIRMNESS SCALE
|Soft||Medium Soft||Medium||Medium Firm||Firm|
Sleep position, pressure relief and body type
Every one of us has our own unique individual sleeping requirements. These are all based on a complex array of factors such as our weight, height, preferred sleeping position, and the number of sleeping entities in the bed (partners, pets, kids, etc). These variants will affect the types and amount of pressure you place on your mattress, and thus determine your pressure relief needs. Some mattresses may specialize in providing comfort to a specific set of these requirements, while others may try to provide basic comfort to as many of these requirements as possible. The Juno mattress sort of limbos in between these two ideals and below we’re going to examine how the mattress performs for a few major sleeper types.
Most back sleepers have a tendency to concentrate the majority of their pressure around their hips and pelvis area when lying in this position. Memory foam mattresses have a consistently healthy reputation with back sleepers when used with the right firmness. The comfort layer in this mattress is quite efficient at nesting the pressure points of back sleepers between 150-250lbs. Back sleepers that are out of this weight range may find this mattress just a bit too uncomfortable.
Side sleepers generally have a slightly more complex set of pressure points to cater to than that of back sleepers. Where back and stomach sleepers need support to lay their bodies down as flat as possible, side sleepers need pressure relief that works with their body’s natural curves and contours. While the Juno may prove just a bit too rigid for most side sleepers, there may be some cases where the mattress appeals to certain side sleepers with only minor pressure relief needs.
Stomach sleepers ironically have very similar pressure point needs to that of back sleepers. Even though these positions mirror each other, stomach sleepers will also usually focus most of their weight around the hips and pelvic area. These sleepers will also need to lay their bodies out as flat as possible without experiencing any sag in the mattress surface. Any excess dip in the mattress’s middle third will cause discomfort in the backs of stomach sleepers. Luckily the Juno has a pretty efficient support system for stomach sleepers, though we may not recommend it for stomach sleepers who weigh over the 250lbs mark.
Combination sleepers have possibly the most complex pressure relief needs out of the sleeper types we have listed here. If anything, these sleepers require a mattress with fast responding layering so that they can switch positions with little to no resistance. The Juno mattress’s foam is slow-responding, and we feel that the mattress’s lack of elasticity may not make it the best choice for combination sleepers, regardless of weight class.
It goes without saying that heavy sleepers usually need a mattress that has a stronger overall structure than average. This means a combination of both enhanced structural and tensile integrity is needed and this can translate to an increase in manufacturing costs. The Juno mattress is made for accessibility and affordability and as such, may not be strong enough for heavier sleeper types.
We’re not surprised how often we find a mattress that is both too soft for heavy sleepers, but also too hard for small or petite sleeper types. The Juno mattress is built for the average sleeping weight class and its slow response and above average fitness don’t make it the right fit for lighter sleeper types. There may be some instances where lighter back or stomach sleepers enjoy this mattress if their pressure relief needs are only minor.
Juno edge support
We fund the Juno mattress’s edge support to be somewhat fair and overall quite average. Edge support is important to cases such as couples (who need as much surface area as possible when sharing) or sleepers who need extra support getting in or out of bed (such as the elderly). The Juno mattress is not an exceptionally strong mattress, but it will be able to comfortably support the weight of anyone between 150-250lbs when they sit along the edge. Likewise, couples that fall within this weight class should be able to sleep comfortably alongside each other as there is no major dip or sag when lying along the sides of the mattress.

Juno mattress temperature regulation
The Juno mattress is by no means the most active mattress when it comes to cooling, but we did not find the mattress to be overly stuffy or warm. The mattress is advertised as having cooling gel in its comfort layer to prevent the mattress from overheating. Memory foam can tend to retain some excess heat if it’s not used with the right bed base, or under warmer climates. Sleepers looking for something with enhanced or more active temperature regulation will probably have to look up some other options to find optimum comfort.

Motion isolation and noise
There are many sleepers who need a mattress that prioritizes maintaining their sleep over instigating it. Certain sleepers are more sensitive during their sleep cycle and more likely to be woken by noise or movement than others. These sleepers need a mattress with reliable motion isolating properties. The Juno’s foam layering does a great job of absorbing any sort of vibrations caused by movements across the comfort level. The mattress also comes with no inner springs or coils in its support base, which means it’s virtually noiseless under the motions of most sleeper types.
Is Juno suitable for couples and sex?
It’s a slightly more complicated process shopping for a mattress with two sets of sleeping needs, but couples have a few tying binds to consider when looking for a mattress to share. The Juno has enough motion isolation to cater to the needs of couples with even the most restless sleeping partners. While the edge support is about average, we feel as if it may be solid enough for couples below a combined weight of 450lbs. One deterring characteristic in the bed is its lack of bounce. Couples that are looking to enjoy a consistent and active sex life will probably find the Juno mattress to be a bit too dull to do so comfortably. Bouncier beds encourage the traction needed for optimum sexual performance, and the Juno’s slow response time may be a bit hindering to sexually active couples.
Durability and longevity
One would assume that mattresses that are marketed as budget tier products would have fairly short lifespans, and concurrently come with short term warranties. Neither is true with the Juno and it’s possibly part of what makes it a very appealing option to budget consumers looking for a simple long term sleeping investment. The Juno will probably wear a bit faster in warmer or more humid climates, so those that live in more extreme conditions will want to take this into consideration when buying their Juno mattress. Goodmorning.com has put some weighted confidence in their mattress and offers its customers a generous 15-year warranty with the purchase of a Juno mattress. This is 5 years higher than the industry standard.
There are two types of bed bases available for purchase on the Juno mattress website. The adjustable base they offer comes with remote control for hands-free use and the mattress should conform quite easily into whichever setting you leave the base at. The other option is a very sleek and simple box frame that comes with a color matching cover to give the combo a pleasing aesthetic. We would advise that sleepers use wooden or metal frames with this mattress to allow for as much ventilation through the mattress body as possible. Here’s a brief table to show you which bases we feel work best with the Juno mattress.
COMPATIBLE WITH THESE BED BASES
Juno mattress complaints
- Due to the nature of the synthetic materials used in this mattress’s layering system, there will be some minor off-gassing when unboxing this bed. Some users have complained about this, but in a well-ventilated space, this odor should subside shortly after unpackaging.
- There are some users who have noted that the mattress can become overly stuffy or warm, especially when used in sleeping environments with high levels of humidity or low ventilation.
Our final verdict: Do we recommend the Juno mattress brand?
- If purchasing a mattress is not something you want to spend excessive amounts of money on, then we recommend the Juno mattress.
- Back and Stomach sleepers between the weight marks of 150-250 suit this mattress best.
- This mattress is a bit of a double-edged sword for couples. It has superb motion isolation ability and is virtually noiseless as well. But we think it might be just a bit too rigid for couples who want to enjoy active sex life.
- Along with its really impressive affordability, we feel that the materials used in this mattress offer pretty good value for money. We foresee the mattress lasting into its 15-year warranty, and reliability is always attractive when it comes to quality sleep.
