WinkBeds GravityLux Detailed Review

Well, Wink took their dedication to superior bedmaking of hybrids and transferred it to an all foam mattress – the GravityLux.

Company Overview

A family run business, Wink has been handcrafting high quality mattresses in the USA since 2007. All mattresses are made start-to-finish in their Waterson Wisconsin factory; many on the assembly team have been making mattresses by hand for decades. Their central location allows for one of the fastest delivery times in the US as Wink understands that when you decide you need a new mattress, you want it in your home as quickly as possible! They have earned a reputation not only for making one of the leading mattresses in the industry, but for quick delivery, superior customer support and one of the best trial and warranties in the industry.

Let’s have a closer look at the materials before hopping in the 3 different comfort styles to choose from.

Construction / Materials

Before we dive into the three comfort levels, let’s have a look at the reason Winkbed GravityLuxs are consistently ranked as one of the most comfortable and supportive mattresses on the market.

The Cover

Wink chose a Tencel cover for its beds. Tencel has a soft, luxurious feel designed to keep you cool and dry throughout the night. Tencel is a 100% natural, eucalyptus-based performance fabric. Tencel is more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen (think UnderArmour!). The superior moisture control helps keep you cool and dry throughout the night. No more tossing and turning because you are hot. Tencel is also naturally anti-microbial by resisting dust mites, bacteria and allergens. AND, Tencel uses 10-20x less water during production than cotton so it is better for the environment!


Comfort Layer

Tufted to the top layer is 2-3 inches of premium cooling gel foam. It enables airflow and wicks away body heat and moisture. The gel pulls heat away from your body, keeping you cool all night long.

The primary comfort layer comes from Wink’s patented AirCell memory foam. This quick response foam relieves pressure while providing pushback support. Depending upon the model, Wink varies the density so the soft bed remains soft and the firm is firm.

AirCeII’s memory foam addresses all the shortfalls of traditional memory foam, while maintaining the same pressure-relieving and body-contouring properties that made memory foam famous in the first place. Its secret is that AirCell™ isn’t visco-based. Instead, it has an open-cell structure using billions of micro air capsules that improves upon its pressure-relieving and comfort-molding reaction to body weight and heat, all while increasing its durability.

AirCell’s adaptive response makes the GravityLux incredibly comfortable for every sleeper, no matter the body type or sleep position. And all without the heat capture or sagging associated with traditional memory foam mattresses.


Support System

GravityLux’s support system employs both Progression Foam and Atlas Core foam underneath its comfort layer. The Progression Foam™ layer provides targeted support that pushes back in areas like the hips and lumbar region while plying in areas like the shoulders and legs. 1.8lb density ATLAS Core™ foam provides pushback support and sag-proof lifetime durability, making the GravityLux one of the most durable mattresses on the market. Wink support layers are zoned because the more zones, generally the greater the support. The greater zones provide additional support where it counts (the middle third of our body) to provide a relaxing comfortable sleep all night long. Finally, for even more support where it counts, Wink reinforces the lower back lumbar region on all models.


Tufting is the process where the individual parts of the mattress are either sewn or glued together to prevent slippage. In GravityLux’s case, Wink chose top tufting, where the cover is sewn into the gel foam layer. Tufting helps keep everything nice and together. This is just another example of the little details Wink takes care of so you can rest easy.

Does Winkbed GravityLux Sleep Cool?

YES! We found Winkbed to offer a cool to neutral (i.e., not hot) temperature control. Being cool at night is all about being dry. Winkbed accomplishes the cool factor through its AirCell technology. Unlike traditional memory foam, AirCell™ isn’t temperature sensitive, and dissipates body heat faster. It draws heat from your body, dispersing it throughout the mattress to keep you cool.

Final result – Winkbed GravityLux will keep you cool and dry throughout the night allowing your body to get the rest it deserves.

How about Edge Support?

GravityLux is one of the best all foam beds in the business when it comes to edge support no matter which model you choose. Wink reinforces the outer edge of the mattress with denser foam to make sure the mattress edge is “sag free”. This edge support increases the sleeping area so, for example, if one partner is a bed hog, the other partner can rest soundly on the edge.

Three Distinct Comfort Styles (Soft, Medium and Firm)

No matter which style you choose, just by the solid look of the Winkbed GravityLux, you know you’ll be sleeping on a comfortable yet very supportive mattress for many years to come. There’s a reason the Winkbed is nicknamed the “Hotel Bed”. It looks (and feels) like it belongs in a four star hotel. Let’s take a closer look at the different styles.

GravityLux Soft

WinkBeds designed the soft for sleepers with a preference for a plush, cloud-like comfort level. And they nailed it. Geared for side sleepers, or sleepers that want a lot of sink, the Soft’s 3 layers of gel foam along with the AirCell™ Shock-Absorbing Memory Foam pull you in right away. The responsiveness of the patented foams respond quickly so you do not experience that “quicksand” sinking feeling that you can’t escape. The gel top will envelop and contour to your body more than its firmer cousins such as the Medium. That said, after a few minutes, as you settle into the mattress, you can begin to feel the superior support from the denser foam layers underneath. You will definitely feel more “in it” than on top of it, but you won’t sacrifice the support.

With the soft, exclusive side sleepers get the best of both worlds as they will get the most pressure and spinal alignment due to the sinking of the hip and shoulder regions. Because the bed envelops you more, some think that might make the bed sleep warmer or even hotter. This is not the case with Winkbeds. The cooling gel combined with the air flow design and the Tencel cover keep this plush bed cool all evening long.

The sweet spot for weight is up to 200 lbs (especially for side sleepers). Above that weight, you’ll start to lose the benefit of the pressure relief from the gel as your body rests more on the springs. At that size, you might consider the Medium model as the comfort layer provides additional support and comfort relief.

  • On Sandman’s Firmness Scale, we rate Softer a 5 out of 10.
  • Primarily designed for side sleepers. Side/stomach or side/back sleepers might feel more support on the Lux Firm.
  • Even though you sink into the comfort layer, the superior airflow design and advanced cooling technology will keep you cool and dry all night long.
  • Edge support is very good – minimal side sagging here!
GravityLux Medium

Looking for the perfect blend of comfort and support? Look no further than Wink most popular GravityLux medium version. It’s the “just right” spot for even the choosiest customers who like a medium feel. Not too firm and not too soft, and it’s a MULTISLEEPER so it is designed for all sleep positions and body sizes. Immediately upon laying on the Medium, you can feel the cooling gel take you in but you quickly feel the substantial support cradling your body. Almost immediately you will feel the support of the dense core push back and cradle your body no matter which position you sleep. The Medium is a true MULTI SLEEPER, designed to support all sleeping styles, side, stomach, back and any combination therein. You will feel just enough pressure relief on the top of the mattress but you are also going to have the support system that is going to keep you “on” the mattress rather than “in” the mattress as in the soft. No matter your sleeping style, you cannot go wrong with this mattress. It’s going to have the cooling factors minus the deep enveloping. The top comfort layer is 2 inches to give it a slightly firmer feel. It has a little less pressure relief than the Soft, a little more pressure relief than the Firm, but with the same support to keep your body aligned correctly.

  • On Sandman’s Firmness Scale, we rate Lux Firm a 7 out of 10.
  • This is a MultiSleeper, designed for all sleeping styles.
  • The luxurious comfort layer provides a little bit of sink, but even so, the superior airflow design and advanced cooling technology will keep you cool and dry all night long.
  • Edge support is very good – minimal side sagging here!
GravityLux Firm

As the name denotes, this bed is pretty firm, some say it feels hard. Great for those who sleep on their stomach or back and also enjoy an overall firmer feel.
It has the same 2 in thick comfort as the Medium, but it is denser. Back and side sleepers will get the most comfort from the Firmer mattress. Side sleepers may get away with it but you lose the softer luxury feel in the softer versions. You will definitely not sink as much as you sleep “on top” of this mattress. The bed still packs in all of the same cooling features as it’s cousins so you will sleep cool and dry throughout the night. If you do end up on your side, you won’t have as much pressure relief. You will, however, have the same cooling factors and of course support.

  • On Sandman’s Firmness Scale, we rate Firmer a 8 out of 10.
  • Stomach and back sleepers will get the most benefit out of the Firmer version. Any side sleepers should look more toward the Medium.
  • The firm comfort layer provides very little sink, but even so, the superior airflow design and advanced cooling technology will keep you cool and dry all night long.
  • Edge support is excellent – no side sagging here!

Motion Isolation (no motion transfer)

All GravityLux beds have superior motion isolation. Simply put, you will not feel your partner move at night. Whether they are a toss and turner, an early riser or using the facilities, it’s not the bed that will wake you. No springs = no motion transfer. The high density gel foam by its very nature does not transfer motion. It absorbs energy.

How does it arrive?

Wink compresses their GravityLux mattress and rolls it into a box. And, with no sacrifice to quality and durability. The way Wink compresses its mattresses, they keep their shape and strength. The box arrives via Fedex or White Glove Delivery if you choose. Simply unbos the mattress, rest it on the bed frame and remove the plastic wrapping and the bed will decompress before your eyes. You can begin sleeping on the bed and enjoying a restful night sleep that same day.

What’s the Return Policy? Can I exchange it for either a softer or firmer model?

Wink offers a 120 night trial period, one of the best in the industry. You can either return it for a 100% refund, or you can Exchange it for either a firmer or softer version during the trial period. It truly is hassle free as Wink does all the heavy lifting. Here’s how both systems work:

  1. The trial begins when you RECEIVE the mattress (the fedex delivery day).
  2. You can sleep on it for 120 nights. As there can be a slight break-in period, Wink asks that you not initiate a return during the first 30 days.
  3. If it’s not the mattress of your dreams, reach out Wink via phone, email or chat (on their website), provide your name and order number and let them know if you wish to RETURN or EXCHANGE. Either way, there are no questions asked!
  4. Returns: Winkbed coordinates a donation or recycling pickup on a day of your choosing. They handle everything and there’s nothing you have to do besides letting them know the best pickup date.
  5. Full 100% refunds (no fees!!) are issued within 5 days of the pick-up.
  6. Exchanges: For an exchange, Wink will send the new mattress to your home BEFORE the old one is removed so you’ll never be without a bed to sleep on. And they offer a 60 day trial on the new mattress to make sure it’s perfect for you.
  7. Exchanges do have a $49 charge to cover state and/or local mattress recycling fees.

Wink doesn’t stop there!
