What Are Kingsdown Mattresses?
Kingsdown mattresses are made by hand which is part of the reason they are considered a luxury mattress. The other thing that makes them luxurious is the fact that they are made with high-quality materials.
The company uses scientific research to design personalized support systems to deliver optimal ergonomic support for its customers. The science they put into the production of their mattresses is called Body Science Technology.
Whether you are a side sleeper or a back sleeper, have lower back pain or joint pain, Kingsdown says it makes a personalized mattress that will be ideal for your specific needs.
You can determine which mattress is right for you by checking out the specifications below, but they also have a test-bed system called bedMatch. BedMatch will actually create a product suggestion list based on your exact body analysis.
You fill out a short survey and then lay on a test-bed for 3 minutes. You can find a bedMATCH location on the Kingsdown website, but they are available at most third-party retail stores that sell Kingsdown mattresses.
Kingsdown Mattress Collections
Kingsdown has seven mattress collections whose features vary along with their price. The company makes two “Intelligent” mattresses which feature adjustable air pockets for different levels of support and five innerspring/hybrid mattresses. Below is all the detailed information you’ll need for a comprehensive Kingsdown mattress review.
The two collections that feature “intelligent” technology are Body Perfect and Sleep Smart Air. Both collections use air pocket technology to deliver support. They either contain “pro-active air” technology which intuitively adjusts the air pockets while you sleep or “active air” which can be manually adjusted using the provided controls.
The Body Perfect collection has the pro-active air technology which will automatically adjust while you sleep to correct alignment and provide ideal support and pressure relief. It comes with a tablet and a custom app. The app gives you a daily summary of essential sleep statistics and sleep tips so that you can ensure you’re getting the best rest possible.
The Sleep Smart Air mattress has six air pockets that can be adjusted to increase or decrease firmness and provide ideal pressure relief and support. The air pockets are adjusted using an app and which also controls the specialized power base.
The four innerspring mattress collections available are Passions, Prime, Sleep to Live, and Vintage. Although Kingsdown refers to these as innerspring mattresses, they are actually hybrid mattresses. Hybrid mattresses have both innerspring coils as well as latex or memory foam.
Kingsdown mattress collections have various key features unique to each mattress. Some of these features are airflow channels, gel, high coil count, ideal temperature control, personalized support, and natural materials.
The Passions collection is a pillowtop mattress and is their top of the line mattress. It has the most features including:
The Prime collection is the more economical version of the Passions mattress. It is still high-quality but has fewer features than the Passions collection. The price, however, is far more economical. So if you’re looking for great features without the high price tag, then you’d be better off with a Prime than a Passions.
The Sleep to Live collection was explicitly designed to work with the bedMatch diagnostic system. It comes in three series which offer various features such as:
If you want a mattress that has plenty of natural fibers, then the Vintage collection by Kingsdown may be the right choice for you. It contains natural fibers that allow for better airflow and temperature regulation, but be warned; it comes with a hefty price tag.
The My Side collection is the only memory foam mattress currently offered by Kingsdown although it does also have an innerspring coil support system. It is a branch off of the Sleep to Live collection and is designed to work with the bedMatch diagnostic system. Like all Kingsdown mattresses, its features focus on coolness, airflow, and body conforming support.
The significant difference between the Sleep to Live and the My Side is that the My Side collection has dual comfort technology, meaning the sleeper can individually customize each side of the bed.
Kingsdown offers seven standard mattress sizes, but each size is only available for select models from some retailers: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Full XL, Queen, King, and California King.
- Body Perfect and Sleep Smart Air: 10-year warranty on the sleep system and a 5-year warranty on the electronic components
- Passions, Prime, and Vintage: 10-year limited warranty
- The Sleep to Live: 15-year warranty
- My Side: No warranty listed on the Kingsdown website
Kingsdown does not sell directly to the public and offers little information about the products’ specifications on their website. Instead, they sell to third-party businesses such as online and local furniture or mattress stores. The stores set pricing and list individual mattress specifications.
That said, it can be challenging to locate specific Kingsdown collections for sale because sometimes sellers change the product name for marketing purposes.
Also, despite an extensive search, we were unable to find a single store selling the BodyPerfect or Sleep Smart Air intelligent mattresses. We did find one article which referred to them as the Intuitive and the Progeny respectively, but we were unable to find any mattresses being sold by those names either. Neither could we find the My Side mattress for sale anywhere.
Not including the mattresses discussed above, the most expensive mattress by Kingsdown is the Vintage collection. It starts at $1,100 for a twin size and tops out at $6,035 for a King.
The average price for a queen size bed for the other collections starts at $1,000. Here is the average cost of a queen size Kingsdown mattress by collection.

Pros and Cons of Kingsdown
The Right Mattress for Me?
For most, these mattresses are above average in terms of support including above average edge support. They are also very good at keeping you cool while you sleep. They are suitable for side, back, or stomach sleepers.
Sadly, customers don’t rate these mattresses well when it comes to durability. Most customers find that the bed breaks down within five or six years. This defect leads to an overall lower than average satisfaction rating from customers.
Most companies have normal wear and tear threshold. Based on customer reviews, Kingsdown doesn’t have a very accommodating threshold. That said, the 10-year Kingsdown warranty does say it covers 1”-1 1/2” sagging. It does not include body impressions and does not explicitly mention bunching.
It is hard to determine which of their mattresses are the best because they often change the names and mattresses they offer. They are difficult to find except at very particular retailers, and customer reviews aren’t very good. Also, product specifications are especially hard to find.
Overall, we give Kingsdown mattresses a 3-star rating. Hopefully, this Kingsdown mattress review provided you with everything you need to know before purchasing.
