See Why Customers Love Their Douglas Mattresses

Douglas has over 11,000 5-star reviews from Canadians sleepers.

Super Comfortable!

Did a ton of research before choosing the Douglas, including Leesa, Casper, Endy, Purple, etc. I can say without a doubt [Douglas is] the most comfortable mattress I've ever had, and I love the fact it's made by Canadians, for Canadians!

Stan W. Verified Douglas Buyer

Pleasantly Surprised :)

I was looking at Casper, Endy, and Douglas, but at first I put Douglas to the side because it was the cheapest! I thought [...] the more expensive ones must be better quality. Not the case! We are SO HAPPY with Douglas!

Carly M. Verified Douglas Buyer

So Far, So Good!

"We bought the purple mattress because of the hype, but [returned it] because it was too soft. The Douglas was our next choice and we are both very happy it."

Best Sleep I Have Had in 10 Years.

My wife and I are extremely happy with our Douglas mattress.

For probably the last 10 years I would wake up every morning with back pain from sleeping on our mattress.

Since we got our new mattress I literally wake up pain free and I couldn't be happier.

Michael S. Verified Douglas Buyer

Shopping Online Was Super Easy

I purchased a Douglas mattress and pillow 6 months ago, and I can't believe how much my sleep has improved. I used to wake up tired and sore, and that's all gone now.

I was a little worried about buying a product I have never tried before, but I'm so happy I did.

An all-Canadian product with just the right amount of firmness for a great night's sleep, and at a great price!

Our Fifth Douglas Mattress

This will be the fifth Douglas mattress we have bought for our family. One king, two queens, and two twins.

These are the best products on the market. Keeping it Canadian, eh.

Best Bed-in-a-Box, Period.

I’ve tried Casper, Puffy, and Leesa beds and ended up sending them all back because I would wake up in pain. … [Douglas] is by far the best bed I’ve owned. I hardly ever wake up in pain anymore...

Take the Plunge, You Won’t Regret It!

I couldn't be happier. It gives where it needs to and supports where it should. I don't find any issues with temperature, and I like to sleep cool. I strongly recommend the mattress...on top of everything, the price is unbeatable!

Marissa T. Verified Douglas Buyer
Winnipeg, MB
❤️ Very Happy! ❤️

I'm usually a hot sleeper but I find my mattress keeps me at a comfortable temperature.

The edge support is stellar! This was very important for me as I tend to sit on the edge of my bed quite often.

I find the firmness to be perfect for me overall.

Natalie H. Verified Douglas Buyer

I Love My Douglas Mattress!

I work the night shift 12 hours as a nurse, and we are on our feet a lot. When I finish work, I can't wait to get home and climb into bed.

It's so comfortable I fall asleep almost immediately and I stay asleep.

My back feels so much better now that I am sleeping on this mattress.

5 Reasons Why Canadians Choose Douglas over Casper & Purple

Douglas Puts Canadians First. Casper & Purple Design for the USA.

Douglas is a Canadian sleep company. Every Douglas mattress is made in Canadian factories with Canadian materials, to the firmness preferences Canadians prefer.

Did you know? Canadians prefer firmer mattresses than Americans. (Source)

Casper and Purple? They’re American companies that are trying to expand into Canada with the same softer mattresses they sell to their U.S. customers. Third-party testing confirms that both Casper and Purple are distinctly softer than Douglas.*

Don’t spend your hard-earned money on foreign import tariffs! Get a Canadian-made Douglas mattress instead, and save money on a mattress designed for Canadian sleepers.

Douglas has nearly as many 5-star customer reviews as the Casper Original, despite being introduced 3 years later and operating in a market 10x smaller.

“Amazing! Didn't know I was getting a terrible sleep until I got a Douglas. They are so comfortable I bought a second one right after the first!”

Spencer H. Verified Douglas Buyer

Douglas Keeps You Cool at Night

Every Douglas mattress is made with cooling gel foam and a breathable CoolSense® Cover. They work together to dissipate body heat, giving you a cooler sleep throughout the year.

Unfortunately, neither Casper nor Purple have cooling gel foam. Casper drills holes through their top foam layer for ventilation, while Purple claims their polymer grid sleeps cooler than "closed-cell" memory foam mattresses. (Who still makes those??)

Looking for even more temperature control? Upgrade to the Douglas Alpine or Summit mattress. Both come with Polar® temperature balancing phase-change materials. This keeps the surface of your Douglas mattress within a comfortable temperature range by drawing away heat when you're too warm and releasing heat back to you when it cools down.

Douglas owners are nearly 10x more likely to be satisfied or very satisfied with the overall temperature of the mattress than dissatisfied.*

*Based on a general survey of Douglas mattress owners conducted in January 2023.

"So comfortable and really does stay cool. It's about time something works as advertised."

Dean M. Verified Douglas Buyer

Douglas Has Better Edge Support & Motion Isolation*

We commissioned licensed engineers to test Casper, Douglas, and Purple on a number of qualities important to sleepers. Douglas beat Casper and Purple in both motion isolation and edge support, and the results weren’t even close.

Wouldn't you expect better performance from mattresses that are 2x to 4x the price of a Douglas? Or does all of that money go towards marketing?

Out of 115+ popular mattress brands tested under the same conditions, Douglas mattresses held the two top positions for motion isolation! With less motion and fewer sleep disruptions, Douglas makes it easier for you to get the uninterrupted, restorative sleep you need to feel your best each morning.

For visualization purposes only.

*Based on testing by third-party engineers commissioned by, and covered in full detail in this APEGA-stamped report.

“One of the best things about this mattress is the lack of movement you experience as someone else gets in and out of bed. Not even a tremor!”

Purple Doesn’t Offer Refunds on Opened Products, but Douglas Does

Imagine spending over $3,000 on a mattress, discovering you're not a fan, and then finding out you can't get your money back. That's the risk you run when you buy from

Purple will only allow you to exchange your purchase, once opened. And with their least expensive queen-size mattress selling for more than $3,300 CAD, you might end up spending even more on an upgrade during the exchange process instead of just getting your money back. If you don't care for Purple's GelFlex Grid®, chances are you won't like the other Purple mattresses much, either.

You can rest easy with Douglas. You get 365 nights to try it out at home. If you aren't satisfied, that's no problem. Douglas will give you your money back, pick up your mattress, and donate it to a local charity when possible. If it could save you $2,500+, why wouldn't you try Douglas first, risk-free?

Not that you'll want to return your Douglas – it's fine-tuned for Canadian sleep preferences.

"They were helping me every step of way, with the order, inquiries, and return; and they provided amazing, clear instructions when needed. Exceptional customer service – no one beats these guys!"
