All the details

WARRANTY 25+ Year Warranty
Durability 5 – Mattress Matthew has triple-density latex and a single progressive compressive support layer that reinforce the bed and help prevent deterioration, giving it one of the longest lifespan mattresses tested
Motion Isolation 5 – A progressive compressive comfort system with 9″ of firm support allows the Mattress Matthew to minimize motion very well
Off-gassing 5 – Only a hint of off-gassing is to be expected that will dissipate within hours.  More like a new mattress smell.
Conforming 4 – The Mattress Matthew support core is considered ‘ Very Firm’, but the pillow top models provides conforming and comfort.
Sex 4 – The Shear Sleep Collection mattresses offers a ‘Firm’ surface that should be sufficiently responsive for most couples.
Temperature Neutrality 5 – Temperature neutrality is a key strength of the Shear Sleep Collection, which sleeps fairly cool due to natural latex and silk cover.
Edge Support 5 – A single 9” layer of triple-density latex reinforces the Mattress Matthew and prevents any sinkage around the edges where people tend to sit regardless of weight.  These are very supportive mattresses
Noise 4 – The Shear Sleep Collection mattress itself does not produces squeaks and creaks, but the bed frame may squeak due to the much heavier weight.  We recommend an equally high quality bed frame for this mattress

Bed Buddy Report |Findings |

The Shear Sleep Collection mattresses from Mattress Matthew is a triple density natural latex specifically designed to accommodate very heavy individuals with back pain or any sleeper with backpain. The mattress is constructed with a ‘Functionally Firm’ support core of progressive compressive latex that is triple the density of regular high density latex.  The high density latex, memory foam, and low density latex are available in the comfort layer of the pillow top models to fine tune the comfort preferences of each sleeper while maintain an exceptionally supportive surface for all backpain and heavy sleepers. This review is on the Borderdale in the Shear Sleep Collection by Mattress Matthew, it is the model with a memory foam pillow top to allow for custom comfort customisation for those who want to fine tune their comfort while still getting the benefit of a chiropractic mattress that will last for decades.

The Shear Sleep Collection models also sleeps fairly cool due to natural heat dispersion by the quilted silk cover, which helps the rest of the bed maintain a comfortable temperature. The unparalleled support core being so firm and dense also isolates motion transfer very well and the mattress produces no noise when bearing weight; this makes Mattress Matthew mattresses suitable for couples, particularly if one or both of the sleepers awaken easily due to movement or noise.

Compared to other high end mattress of comparable quality, the Mattress Matthew Shear Sleep Collection has a low price-point. It is also backed by a longer-than-average warranty that is 25+ years, as well as a hassle free money back guarantee. Mattress Matthew offers free delivery and setup to customers in the U.S.

What Type of Sleeper Is Best Suited for a Mattress Matthew mattress?

Based on our customer feedback, Mattress Matthew Shear Sleep Collection mattresses have received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.

Mattress Matthew mattresses are designed for very heavy sleepers (more than 300 pounds) as well as those with backpain as this is a chiropractic mattress.  Not surprisingly, sleepers in this group – particularly side and back sleepers – have awarded very favorable ratings to the mattress. Lighter individuals may not experience as much conforming and may find it a tad firm, but this is common with the firm support of any chiropractic mattress.  The Shear Sleep Collection is still suitable for most sleepers under 230 pounds who prefer firmer surfaces and a durable bed that will last for decades. The Shear Sleep Collection is also a good option for stomach sleepers, who tend to feel most comfortable on firm beds.

For more information on sleeping positions please see our guides for side, back, stomach and combination sleepers.

  • You are looking for a durable long-lasting mattress that will not sag for decades
  • You sleep with a partner and want to limit the movement you feel on the bed.
