Pressure Test Results

We've pressure tested the Chime Elite 10 Inch Memory Foam Firm mattress with models who have petite, average, and large bodies.  They laid on their side and back sleeping positions to see what kind of support and pressure relief you can expect. (Learn how we test.) 

Test results scored this mattress as 'recommended' for all back sleepers regardless of body size. The bed also earned a 'not recommended' score for side sleepers with larger-sized bodies due to the excess pressure shown as bright red spots on the image below. What you're looking for when considering these images is how many green or light blue areas there are in correlation to your particular body size and preferred sleep position. These areas will show you where your body will get the proper amount of back support for proper spinal alignment as well as pressure relief on your joints. The yellower areas signify an increase in pressure beyond what is considered acceptable, to 'normal'.

    A support foam that conforms to your body’s curves and reduces pressure points for less tossing and turning. Green tea acts as a safe and natural anti-oxidant to maintain the foam’s freshness.

Warranty

The Chime Elite 10 Inch Memory Foam Firm mattress has a 10-year warranty against factory defects.

Conclusion

The Chime Elite 10 Inch Memory Foam Firm is a firm (not hard!) feeling bed. This is the thinnest of the Elite memory foam firm beds by Ashley in the Chime collection which is likely why it picked up a 'not recommended' score for larger-size side sleepers during pressure testing. The layers of foam in this mattress are considerable but this bed will not really be comfortable for anyone who is larger in stature. The bed did, however, come as highly recommended for all sizes of back sleepers

While being the slimmest of the Elite memory foam beds this mattress still has some good-quality materials built into it. Gel & Charcoal Infused Memory Foam along with Green Tea Infused Support Foam is a top-of-the-line foam for a mattress. These layers help to conform under your body and they also help to draw away heat so you can sleep cooler.

This mattress is inexpensive and is a great choice for anyone looking to get a bed that has great features without a premium price. For anyone who prefers a mattress with springs, or dislikes a foam feel to the bed you may want to consider a different model. Ten inches of foam for a mattress is a lot when you're paying so little for a queen-size mattress.
