If you’re not sure which type of mattress is best for you, feel free to live chat with us! We’re happy to help.
Are your mattresses Oeko-Tex Certified?
Yes! The Oeko-Tex certification affirms that a product is free of any harmful chemicals. All of our products are certified by Oeko-Tex to be guaranteed free of potentially harmful substances.
What are the different mattress sizes and dimensions?
The mattress sizes we offer and their corresponding dimensions are below. Please note that, due to the handmade nature of our product, mattress dimensions can vary by up to 1” on any given side.

What will my Helix Mattress feel like?
Each Helix Mattress is designed to provide different feels - ranging from plush to firm. We encourage you to take our SLEEP QUIZ in order to find the best mattress for you based on your body type, sleeping position, and mattress preferences with the goal of providing you the most comfort with the right amount of support to align your spine.
What does Zoned Lumbar Support Coils mean in the Helix LUXE Mattress?
Each Helix LUXE Mattress features Zoned Lumbar Support Coils which are designed to provide better cradling to your body. The coils are actually softer under your shoulders and firmer under your hips to better align with the natural shape of your body. This allows for consistent pressure relief on your joints and muscles throughout the night.
Should I ever flip my Helix Mattress over?
No - the Helix Mattress is not designed to be flipped over. The ordering of the layers is critical to the performance of the mattress. The light grey fabric with the Helix logo should always be the bottom part of the mattress.
Can I clean my Helix Mattress cover?
Yes! The top cover of your standard Helix Mattress is removable and machine washable. Unfortunately, you cannot remove the top of the Helix LUXE Mattress because it has a pillow top.
Will my Helix Mattress get body impressions or sag over time?
We chose top quality materials in all of our designs for just this reason. The Helix Mattress is built to be resilient, durable, and to prevent permanent sags or impressions from developing for a very long time.
Should I ever rotate my Helix Mattress?
Because our mattress is built to last, you do not need to rotate the mattress. However, you are welcome to if you’d like! For those with a Dual Comfort mattress, just keep in mind that rotating the mattress will swap the side of the bed that you and your partner sleep on.
I'm allergic to latex. Is that a problem?
Nope! You're in luck. We don't use latex in any of our products.
How safe are the materials in my Helix Mattress?
All foams used in our products are certified to be safe for both you and the environment and are certified by the CertiPUR-US® program, which guarantees that they are made without any harmful chemicals including ozone depleters, PBDE flame retardants, mercury, lead, heavy metals, formaldehyde, and have extremely low impact on indoor air quality.
What safety tests have you done on my Helix Mattress?
We’ve ensured that your Helix Mattress meets all of the strict safety regulations set forth by the US Federal Government. According to regulations 16 CFR Part 1633 and 16 CFR Part 1632, all mattresses sold in the US must pass an open flame test to evaluate how fire reacts to the bed and its components. Each of our beds contains a fire retardant barrier to comply with regulations. This material, otherwise known as an FR sock, is a fabric that encases our materials. The FR sock contains silica, which smothers and subdues a potential fire from spreading.
Do you make custom sizes?
At this time, we are unable to accommodate special requests for custom sizes.
Does my Helix Mattress have a weight limit?
Each Helix Mattress can support up to 1,000 lbs of combined weight and up to 500 lbs for individual sleepers. These weight limits are established by successful testing conducted by our team.
What is different about the Helix Nightfall mattress?
Helix Nightfall is our specialty mattress designed for plus size and big & tall customers. The mattress itself is 12” and has an additional layer of foam for support. The mattress also has a taller spring unit to cradle heavier weight. Due to the additions necessary in this mattress, we charge an additional $195.
Does my Helix Mattress have an odor, or an off-gassing period?
We use high-grade materials that have little to no odor or chemical off-gassing. Our foams are certified by the CertiPUR-US® program. It does not contain any harmful chemicals, heavy metals, or high impact of air quality. There is no need to air out your mattress overnight. Any faint odors or smells will dissipate within 24-hours.
What makes a Dual Comfort Helix Mattress different?
We believe that each mattress should be made to give the best night’s sleep to both people. For couples with very different needs, we suggest a Dual Comfort Helix Mattress, in which we take each of your results to our Sleep Quiz and individually personalize each side, splitting the mattress down the middle. So each side of your mattress will have a distinct feel. Please note due to the complexity of manufacturing, our Dual Comfort mattress will add $195 to your order total.
Does the Helix Mattress require a foundation?
Although a foundation isn’t required, a support system for your mattress is highly recommended. The best option is to use the Helix Foundation to provide the proper support and avoid sagging. If you prefer to use a different support system, we recommend using a bunkie board with a box spring or any support system with firm, flat and thick slats. No matter which support system you choose, the slats should be no wider than 5 inches apart as that could cause sagging and could potentially void your warranty.
Does the Helix Mattress work with adjustable bases?
Yes! The Helix Mattress should work with any adjustable base, but we suggest the Helix Adjustable Base which we have tested.
What's the return policy?
We offer a 100 Night Sleep Trial. If for any reason you do not love your Helix Mattress you can return it within your first 100 nights. Because there is a break-in period, we require that you keep the mattress for at least 30 nights before requesting a return.
Is there an adjustment, or break-in, period?
You will likely experience an adjustment or break-in period with our mattress. Sleeping on a mattress that has been suited for your sleeping needs and preferences is a new experience and your body will need time to align to a new sleep system. Just like a new pair of shoes, the materials in the mattress need to be physically broken in, so it might feel more stiff than you’d expect in the first few weeks. We require that you give your new Helix Mattress at least 30 days to experience the full effect.
What is the warranty?
Every standard Helix Sleep mattress comes with a 10 year warranty. Every Helix LUXE Mattress comes with a 15 year warranty. These warranties protect each customer from any defects in the materials or workmanship of the product that develop from normal and reasonable use. For additional details on our warranty, visit www.helixsleep.com/pages/warranty. Please email us at email@example.com know if you think you need to claim your warranty.

Why am I being charged a recycling fee?
California, Connecticut, and Rhode Island require a recycling fee for any mattress or foundation purchase. The fee is $10.50 per item and cannot be waived by Helix.
Helix color match
How does Helix Color MATCH work?
We’ve worked alongside some of the world’s leading researchers on sleep ergonomics and biomechanics to develop our cutting-edge mattress matching algorithm. We use your Sleep Quiz answers to determine your biological needs in terms of support and pressure relief. We then combine that data with your comfort preferences and then run that model through our set of proprietary models to match you to the best mattress for you.
Do I need to take the Sleep Quiz?
We give you the option to take our Sleep Quiz or choose a mattress yourself if you know exactly what you want! But if you have any doubts, we encourage you to take our Sleep Quiz which is based on years of research and tens of thousands of customers.
Side Sleeper Support vs. All Positions Support
We aim to give you the right amount of support to make sure your spine is aligned in order to reduce pain and improve comfort. It’s possible to have too little support, but also too much support. Some of our mattress are listed as “Side Sleeper Support”. These mattress are best for people who sleep on their side, or people who toss and turn all night long. Our other mattresses are listed as “All Positions Support.” These mattresses are best for people who sleep on their back or stomach, and side sleepers who are heavier and need a little extra support. Both types of mattresses are designed to be as supportive and comfy as you need!

The 100 Night Sleep Trial is our guarantee that comes along with your Helix Mattress purchase. If, for any reason, you are unhappy with the mattress, you can return it for a full refund within 100 night trial period, after 30 days. Since all new mattresses have a break-in period, we require customers to keep the mattress for 30 nights before initiating a return.

We do our best to donate lightly used mattresses to charities and housing facilities. When we’re unable to do so due to relevant laws or the state of the mattress, we enlist our removal partner to recycle the mattress and its materials responsibly.

Spending too much time in the packaging can affect the resilience of the mattress, preventing it from re-gaining its full shape.

Allow the pillow to expand to full size and air out for about 12-24 hours before use. We suggest fluffing it up a bit to regain its full shape. The Helix Pillow will arrive with both Support Layers zipped inside the Outer Shell. You can unzip the outer layer to find the support layers and adjust the pillow to your preferred setting.
Will the Pillow ship with my Helix Mattress or other Helix Products?
No, your pillow will not ship with your mattress because these products are produced and shipped from different facilities in the US. Your pillow order should take 2-6 business days to arrive at your home.
Does the Helix Pillow have an odor, or an off-gassing period?
We used high-grade Memory Foam and Down Alternative that have little to no odor or chemical off-gassing. The foam does not contain any harmful chemical, heavy metals, or high impact of air quality. Should your pillow have any faint odors or smells, we recommend letting it air out for a few hours or placing the pillow (both the shell and inserts) in the dryer on low for no more than 10 minutes.
Can I wash my Helix Pillow?
Unfortunately, the Helix Pillow is not machine washable. We recommend spot cleaning as necessary with lukewarm water. Your Helix Pillow can be placed in the dryer on low heat every 6 months for maximum fluff, performance and comfort.
What size pillows do you offer?
The Helix Pillow comes in Standard (18” x 26”) and King (18” x 32”) sizes. The Standard size pillow works best with a Twin, Twin XL, Full or Queen size mattress. The King size will work perfectly with your King or CA King model.
What's the return policy?
Same as our Helix Mattress! We offer a 100 Night Sleep Trial, if for any reason you do not love your Helix Pillow you can return it within your first 100 nights.
Which Helix Pillow settings work best for me?
No single pillow works best for everyone. The Helix Pillow is adjustable so that everyone can find their perfect match. We recommend following our below suggestions and giving it a few nights. If that isn’t quite right, feel free to test another option. It takes some time to get used to a new pillow.
Two Support Layer Inserts:
This setting offers the most loft and support to keep your head and neck aligned.
- Side sleepers with broad shoulders
- People who like a firmer and taller pillow
One Support Layer Insert:
This is the most commonly used pillow setting, allowing for a perfect blend of loft and comfort.
- People who sleep on their back or side
- People who don’t know if they like firmer or softer pillows as a starting point
Zero Support Layer Inserts:
This setting has the least loft, keeping it soft and low to the bed.
- Stomach sleepers
- People who like a plush feel without any neck tilting

To be in perfect Zero Gravity, the angle of your thighs and torso should be aligned, so your knees are slightly bent and raised to heart level. Your base comes preprogrammed to the ZG reclined position for optimal weight distribution.
