Sleep review: Endy's Canadian-made mattress, pillows and sheets
Let me preface this by saying: I love and NEED my sleep. I’ve always been that way: I rarely pulled all-nighters in school (I’m a firm believer in studying over a couple days vs trying to cram everything in at the last minute) and I can’t function on less than 7 hours (yes, I’m a 👵🏽). Prior to an Endy mattress, we were sleeping on a memory foam mattress, so here’s my comparative review.
While Endy offers a 100-night trial (yes, they’ll pick up the mattress and reimburse you if you decide it’s not for you), I won’t be sending this baby back any time soon.
The Endy Mattress
In my house, we’re 4 in a king size bed: Ash, myself and our two dogs. That being said, a high quality mattress is necessary. My main issue is that I get hot easily, so when Endy reached out to collaborate, I was very curious about the temperature neutral claim on their website.
Zero Motion Transfer
The gist of this is that if you move, your partner won’t feel it because the open air cell in the Endy Mattress works like a little shock absorber and eliminates motion transfer in real time. I will say this: Ash turns like a breaching whale, so I’m not really sure I’m totally backing this claim. However, I will say that I don’t feel the dogs tossing and turning, and that’s very much appreciated because this is me if I’m woken up in the middle of the night:
If you’ve been following my sleep journey on Instagram, you’ve heard me talk about this. I get very hot all the time; it’s not hormonal (there was a time I thought something might be off, but suspicions have ceased since I’m medically A-OK). It’s just the way I’m wired, I tend to move quickly and am always on the go, so that could be a contributing factor… there’s no such thing as a leisurely walk for me; speed-walking always.
Unlike traditional memory foam, Endy is not temperature sensitive which means:
a) the mattress will be consistently firm throughout the year (in the heat of summer and cold of winter - although I guess it’s indoors and the temperature’s regulated… but this is relevant to you if you don’t have A/C
b) the mattress will ensure you’re cool and comfortable all night long (very good for moi).
I honestly have not woken up in sweats since switching to an Endy and it’s actually surprised me since I haven’t changed anything else about the way I sleep or the temperature in the house.
P.S.: Endy offers a 100 night trial, so if you don’t love it, they’ll pick it up and reimburse you. It’s also covered by a 10-year limited warranty. It also ships free across Canada.
This is a given for me. Endy has hit the mark when it comes to overall comfort. If it can keep myself, my husband and two dogs cool throughout the night and my back issues have subsided, it’s a win win win win win for me!
The Endy Pillows
I have to say, I didn’t fully understand when my friend told me about the “customizable” Endy pillow, but now that I have it, mind’s blown and I don’t get why this hasn’t been a thing prior to Endy.
The shredded bamboo charcoal memory foam pillow is available in standard and king size. Since it’s filled with the shredded foam, you can zip it open and take out as much or as little of the foam as you’d like. It also comes with a small zip pouch so you can also make a travel pillow as you take out foam from your bed pillow (THE BEST THING EVER).
10/10 would recommend to a friend, an enemy, a stranger, you name it.
P.S.: Endy offers a 60 night trial, so if you don’t love it, you can send it back for a full refund. They are protected by a 3 year manufacturer warranty and they ship free.
Well, I already had the sheets prior to the collaboration, so I was already sipping that Kool-Aid. My family is part Egyptian, so I grew up in a biased household: it was Egyptian cotton or nothing (lol). I initially got the Endy sheets because a lot of our high thread count sheets weren’t faring so well with dog claws and they claim that they’re durable, yet soft.
This is v, v true, friends… they are quite durable as I wash the sheets twice a week and I haven’t seen any holes in the new set.
Endy has no printed receipts, stores to power and fewer cars on the road because it’s an e-commerce business
Endy compresses mattresses in a box the size of a hockey bag when it’s shipped to you. SIX Endy mattresses take up the same amount of space as two traditional king size mattresses
Canadian manufacturing: everything Endy is designed and made in Canada using safe, Canadian-made materials sourced by the company. This supports jobs in Quebec, Ontario and BC
Materials used are free of harmful chemicals (all Endy foams are CertiPUR-US certified) and the packaging is recyclable
Mattresses that don’t make it passed the 100 night trial are donated to registered charities and non-profits across the country serving families in need

As someone who travels often and stays at hotels that claim to have very comfortable beds, I can honestly say I always look forward to coming back to my own bed every single time.
I was just in NYC and Costa Rica (stayed at a very nice boutique hotel, might I add) this month and I felt the difference; we were sinking to the middle of the bed and I could really feel Ash moving around at night. I flew in last night and slept like a baby, feeling ready to tackle my day.
If you want to try out an Endy mattress, you can check out any of their showrooms. If you also choose to purchase one, you can use my code TARA50 for $ off the purchase.
