The ThermoBalance mattress line is one of four collections from Southerland:

  1. ThermoBalance

  2. Scandinavian

  3. American Sleep

Type of Construction

The Southerland Evolutuin mattresses are hybrid mattresses. Most of them use copper-infused Talalay latex and one uses copper-infused gel Visco memory foam. They use a 5 zoned wrapped coil support system for back support.

Evolution Overview

All six mattresses in this collection share important features on all ThermoBalance mattresses.

All of the mattresses use a Stretch Knit  Fabric with PCM Cooling Surface. This provides a cool-to-the-touch sleep surface.

Also, these mattresses use copper-infused Talalay latex and copper-infused gel Vico memory foam. This will provide a cool and healthy sleep environment.

These mattresses are hybrid and use a 5 zoned wrapped coil support system with a coil gauge of 15. They provide soft support that will hold you in place.

Evolution Mattresses FAQs

  1. Do I need to flip my Evolution mattress?

    No, ThermoBalance mattresses are built from the bottom up and are not designed to be flipped. If you like to rotate your mattress every so often, you can do that.

  2. Can I finance my Evolution mattress?

    Absolutely! On the US-Mattress site, you can finance a Southerland mattress with Synchrony HOME, Affirm, or Paypal.

  3. How does the 120-night trial period work?

    Try the mattress for at least 30 days, and up to 120 nights. If you don't like it, you get your money back. You'll have to pay a $139 processing fee and a restocking fee equal to 20% of the purchase price (the restocking fee will not exceed $500).

  4. Can I test the Evolution mattresses in stores?

    Yes! If you're located in Michigan, find a US-Mattress store near you to test the ThermoBalance mattress. Otherwise, call a local mattress store to check if they have the ThermoBalance mattresses in their store for you to test.

Who is the Evolution Collection Best For?

There are certain things to consider when buying a mattress, most importantly if it'll provide you with the proper support and pressure relief to help you get a great night's sleep. These beds perform very well in those two main areas but there are some other qualities to assess when deciding whether to buy one or not.

Who is Evolution best for? Who is Evolution not ideal for?

An Evolution mattress may be right for you if:

  • You like a good innerspring support system
  • You overheat easily and want highly advanced cooling tech
  • You sleep with a partner - great for motion isolation
  • You want to go with an established brand

An Evolution mattress is not the best option if:

  • You're on a tight budget
  • You like a firm support system
  • You sit on the edge of your bed a lot - doesn't have additional edge support

Conclusion

The Evolution Mattress collection provides a high-quality selection of comfortable mattresses. It has copper infused latex and gel memory foam, which helps to keep the mattress cool so you can sleep better (a cool bed is important to better sleep, a hot mattress can make it hard for you to sleep.)

These six mattresses give you a choice from a firm mattress to a plush pillow top. The high-quality support system and comfort materials that allow airflow can give you a deluxe Southerland sleep experience at a reasonable price.

The Evolution Mattress collection will deliver some of the best sleep possible for side sleepers and back sleepers because the cushioning layers and coil system will cradle your body to help with back problems, and other aches and pains. This collection has a mattress for every sleeping position. Their comfort levels make some of these mattresses a great compromise choice for couples. No matter your choice, a new mattress from this collection will provide all-night cooling.
