Ashley Chime Elite 14 Inch Memory Foam Cushion Firm Mattress Review

Updated November 10, 2022

Gray and white Chime Elite 14

The Chime Elite 14 Inch Memory Foam Cushion Firm mattress is a medium-feeling bed and is the tallest of the memory foam firm beds offered by Ashley Mattress in their Chime collection.  It comes highly-rated for its pressure relief and conforming support, as well.  We’ve tested and reviewed this bed to help you in your decision-making:

Comfort Scale Rating

The Chime Elite 14 Inch Memory Foam Firm mattress has a medium, mid-range comfort feel; we rate it a 4 on our 10-point Comfort Scale (1 is hard, 10 is softest). It’s on the firmer side of medium but will still appeal to the majority of people.  If you prefer a softer or a very firm bed then you will want to consider something else.

Pros & Cons

Pressure Test Results

The Chime Elite 14 Inch Memory Foam Cushion Firm mattress was pressure tested and the results are published below. We tested it with petite, average, and large body size models who we picked from an assortment of various office people at our HQ and had them lay on their side and back sleeping positions to see what kind of support and comfort you can expect. (Learn how we test.) 

As you can see in the results below this mattress has been rated as 'recommended' for four out of the six body type/sleep position combinations. It provided exceptional support for the lower back area and great pressure relief for the main hip and shoulder joints. What you're looking for in these images is how much of each color and what each represents. Green areas show where the pressure relief provided is ideal, while the light blue areas represent proper support for spinal alignment. Yellow areas demonstrate where there's a build-up of pressure though not so much that it would cause discomfort.  

Too much pressure in your peak pressure points, the shoulders, and the hips will cause discomfort leading to tossing and turning for a disrupted night's sleep and a grumpy you the following day.  Proper support of the lower back or side support (depending on which position you sleep in) is also crucial to quality sleep as improper support will cause back pain and tightness.

Our test results confirm that this mattress will give you proper support and pressure relief.
