Producing better dreams, one mattress at a time

All of our mattresses are created using a combination of foam layers. The Meelu Hybrid, our most premium mattress, does include patented pocket springs as well, offering targeted back support and pressure relief. 

Our unique combination of foam layers may include:

  • Plush cloud comfort foam 
  • High resilience bounce foam
  • High density support foam
  • Gel infused memory foam
  • Premium firm comfort foam

Each mattress in a box is carefully crafted to deliver a supportive sleeping surface, no matter how you sleep. The result is a mattress that contours to your body and helps reduce pressure points while providing ample support.

Fitting a mattress in a box

At Meelu, we have a secret weapon that makes our mattresses stand out: our unique production method. We carefully compress and roll each mattress into a compact size, making them easy to transport and deliver right to your doorstep. No more awkward moments with delivery guys lugging a bulky mattress through your home! With Meelu, you can have your mattress arrive in perfect condition (in 3-7 working days) without any heavy lifting required.

Unbox your new mattress, set up your sleep for success

When your Meelu mattress arrives, it will be in a compact box that’s easy to move and transport. Here’s how to unbox your mattress and set it up for less body-aches and more sleeping.

1 | First things first, position your Meelu mattress in a box near your bed base. Slide your rolled-up mattress out of the box and place it on the base. Voila! Easy as pie.

2 | Leave the scissors in the drawers. Let’s use the handy cutting tool attached to the insert, which you can find in the box. Cut the first plastic layer. If you accidentally cut through both layers of plastic, don’t sweat it! Just be careful, because your mattress will expand pretty quickly.

3 | Time to get your mattress in place! Ensure your Meelu mattress is positioned on your base with the white layer facing upward. Double-check that the Meelu label stitched onto the mattress is at the foot of your base. Cut the second layer of plastic at the end of the mattress and wait for it to expand. And be careful not to cut the mattress while cutting the plastic.

4 | It’s almost all ready to go! Cut and remove the plastic, make your bed and get ready for a great night’s sleep. Please note that your mattress will take approximately 24 hours to reach its optimum comfort and expansion point, so be patient (it’s so worth it).

Let the zzz-elebrations begin! You’ve successfully unboxed and set up your Meelu mattress. It’s time to finally get the rest your body and mind deserve.
