Hope Aspire Mattress Review: Your Purchase Will Feed 100 People Through The Feeding America® Program
When we started our Hope mattress review project, we were pretty impressed with the quality of the components used in their Hope Aspire model, which sells for $1149 in queen.
It’s one of few premium grade memory foam and pocketed coil mattresses that contains a substantial amount of pressure relieving memory and gel foam and doesn’t feel like you are slowly immersing in quicksand.
The Hope Aspire claims to have the best outer fabric for cooling and passively removing heat. They call it their “Deep Freeze Cooling Cover” and it’s quilted, giving it and inviting, stretchy sensation.
Using this “phase change fabric” in the outer covering, this mattress sleeps cooler and doesn’t fall into the notorious “hot and sticky” memory foam mattress category.
The chassis of this mattress is also designed to cradle, lift, and elevate your body rather than becoming a bowl that you have to dig your way out of.
We tested The Hope Aspire Mattress for side and back support and found to be effective at distributing weight and pressure away from the body instead of downward.
For pressure relief, a mattress needs to sink in slightly without that trapped sensation. Ideally, your hips and shoulders should immerse slightly, but without feeling hard and producing pinpoint pressure. The Hope Aspire Mattress is effective at this.
After designing hundreds of mattresses for my own online stores for 25 years, I’m used to seeing both inferior components stuck inside of mattresses to be used as filler. This company takes the time to invest in higher density and longer lasting foams for this mattress.
While we don’t want to co-mingle our Hope Aspire Mattress review with the company’s mission statement, we certainly want to tuck it into our conversation.
With every mattress the company sells, a donation is made to Feeding America®, an organization that distributes food to food banks across the U.S.A. Hunger in American is a pressing and serious epidemic.
The Hope Aspire Mattress Delivers On Comfort
About 85% of us prefer a medium to medium firm feel, and The Hope Aspire Mattress falls at about 7.0 out of 10 on our firmness meter. This gives is bit more of a plusher and yielding feel.
With its two layer design containing 3″ of open celled mapping memory foam and gel foam, it’s perfect for side and back sleepers, delivering pressure and pain relief at sensitive areas like shoulders, hips, and even legs.
We found that when lying on your side, this mattress is excellent at moving pressure sideways and not downwards, something hard to build into a mattress.
Because the Aspire Mattress is 14″ tall, it also is a good alternative for larger folks and couples who like to end up in the middle of their mattress because it contains substantial components to move weight to the side of the mattress.
At $1149 In Queen, You Get More Mattress Than From Big Name Leading Brands
The Hope Aspire Mattress is well thought out, and we’d know this from designing our own hybrid mattresses. The cake recipe for this mattress starts by putting the softer and pressure relieving materials up top, close to your body, and building in an individually pocketed coil system which calibrates pressure and push-back against specific areas of your body.
It’s also priced well below similarly designed mattresses that cost twice as much. Because the mattress contains 8-inch sonic welded pocket coils with edge-to-edge support, we found that you get a greater area of sleeping surface, elimination of motion transfer from your partner and reduced sag in the springs- a common problem in pocketed coil mattresses after 5-7 years of use.
It behaves much like a really effective suspension on a luxury automobile. Working in orchestrated fashion with the “cloud-like” feel of the layers above minimizes sink factor, and having to dig your way out of your mattress.
Actually, I’ve designed similar mattresses myself when I was in the mattress manufacturing business, but it was hard to keep the price below $1600-1800 for a queen size when I used similar materials.
The Hope Aspire Mattress draws on materials typically found in more demanding settings, such as commercial and institutional bedding, which is built to last far longer than residential grade bedding.

We give The Hope Aspire Mattress a 4.9 out of 5 star rating. That rating is strictly for the mattress itself, but one of the reasons we love to promote it is that the company’s affiliation with Feeding America truly delivers on peace of mind as well.
The Hope Aspire Mattress is 14″ tall, has a lifetime warranty on all materials and craftsmanship, and ships out in vacuum packaged format which makes for easy shipping to your front door.
Actual owners rate the mattress at 4.7 out of 5 stars, from our survey of 182 reviewers, so it ranks pretty well for customer satisfaction.
After you purchase, you have 120 nights to try it out and make sure it works for you. We’ve compared it to other models such as TempurPedic®, and even Sealy and Simmons.
Typically comparable models run around $1,800-2,200 with the same general components.
The Hope Aspire Mattress Nuts And Bolts: CertiPur-US Certified ® Safe Foams, Made In USA, Hypo-Allergenic
Another real positive with The Hope Aspire Mattress is the company’s use of CertiPUR-US® Certified foam layers. This means the foam in their mattresses is made without ozone depleters, PBDEs, TDCPP, TCEP (”Tris”) flame retardants, formaldehyde, any phthalates regulated by the CPSC, or mercury, lead, or other heavy metals. And their foam has been tested to be less than 0.5 parts per million for VOC’s.
One thing we liked: The Hope Mattress company is based purely in the USA, at several fabricating facilities we are familiar and comfortable with, too. All of their mattress products are made with hypo-allergenic components, are dust mite resistant, and are well reviewed by actual owners.
