Frequently Asked Questions
What type of bed frame should I use?
Sonno mattresses are compatible for most bed frames and bases including box foundation, slatted base, adjustable base, and even on the floor. Bear in mind that the firmness might be different according to the base used (i.e. divan and floor base might feel firmer, slatted base might feel softer). We suggest a solid flat surface.
Can I sleep on my mattress right after unboxing it?
We recommend allowing one hour for your mattress to expand before sleeping on it. After 24 hours, your mattress will have fully taken shape and will perform at its best!
Should I flip or rotate my mattress?
The Sonno mattresses are designed to be used one way up, so flipping is not required. We recommend rotating the mattress 180 degrees every six months to maximise performance and durability.
Can I unzip my Sonno mattress cover and wash it?
Yes, you can do it with the Sonno mattress! Gone are the days of sleeping on dirty, stained mattresses. With the Sonno mattress you can easily unzip your mattress cover and hand-wash it in warm soapy water. Remember to line dry the cover and treat it as you would do with your favourite dress. The Sonno Lite does not have a removable and washable cover, however you can easily use a steam cleaner periodically to refresh and sanitise the soft knitted fabric of the cover.
What kind of sheets will fit my Sonno mattress?
Standard size bed sheets will perfectly fit your new Sonno.
How do I clean my Sonno mattress?

Why should I avoid the spring mattress?
You may be surprised to find out that the mattress you are lying on could, in fact, be acting as a radiation antenna. This is a problem because an antenna will amplify electromagnetic waves, and some electromagnetic radiation has been linked to certain diseases. You don't want to be spending a third of your life lying in an electromagnetic field, yet this is exactly what you are doing if your mattress has any metal in it.
Which are the benefits of a latex mattress?
The latex mattress has three properties that help you to sleep well and live better:
- the mattress is breathable, thanks to the latex porosity
- the mattress is hygienic, since latex is a natural fiber
- the mattress supports your weight, thanks to the elasticity of the material
The mattress must have an elastic structure which supports the body, while its porosity ensures perfect breathability that rapidly eliminates the body’s humidity. The result is a breathable, hygienic mattress, as well as one that is welcoming and supportive.
What is natural latex and why is it used?
Latex foam is produced by vulcanising liquid latex. The vulcanisation process crosslinks latex particles with sulfur through the application of heat and accelerators such as zinc oxide. Latex does not retain heat and provides a high level of pressure relief from its bounce-back effect. It also provides excellent motion-transfer properties.
Why is Sonno Mattress priced much lower than a similar mattress sold in a store?
Most mattresses are priced unrealistically high. By selling online, we do not waste money on large showrooms with pushy salespeople and we cut away the multiple channels of distribution, advertising and high showroom rental. The sale is done directly from the factory to consumers. By compressing the mattress into a box, we reduce the storage and delivery costs too. Just a brilliant mattress sold at a fair price.
How many types of mattresses do you have?
We have 2 mattresses, the Sonno Mattress and the Sonno Lite. Sonno Mattress has 3 layers of Natural Latex, Memory Foam and Support Foam, while the Sonno Lite has 2 layers, Memory Foam and Support Foam. While the Sonno Mattress is 23 cm (9” thick), the Sonno Lite is 18 cm (7” thick). Sonno Mattress also has a removable and washable cover, while Sonno Lite has a knitted fabric cover not removable.

Where is the Sonno Pilllow made?
The Sonno pillow is designed in Italy and made by our trusted friends in China.
What is the Sonno Pillow made of?
Our pillow's core is made from 100% polyurethane memory foam. The foam meets CertiPUR-US® program standards for content, emissions and durability, and is analysed by independent, accredited testing laboratories. The cover is made of ultra-premium Outlast® fabrics that provide comfort, stretch and flexibility. What sets our mattress apart is that it is handcrafted to be incredibly soft and methodically breathable. For your convenience, the durable cover is easily removable for cleaning.
What makes the Sonno Pillow different?
The Sonno pillow is made of one memory foam piece designed to maintain a specific structure to support your head and neck no matter how you sleep. Fill pillows use a variety of materials (cotton, down, polyester, etc.) to make up the inside of a pillow but often need maintenance to keep their shape.
How do I wash my Sonno Pillow?
First, remove the cover from the foam. You can machine wash the cover, in cool water with a mild detergent and a tumble dry on low.
What’s the best pillow for my sleep position?
Sonno sets out to design a single pillow that could accommodate all sleeping positions. Whether you like to sleep on your side, back or stomach, you will feel supported by The Sonno Pillow.
I don’t remember the last time I replaced my latest pillow. How do I know I need a new one?
Experts recommend replacing your pillow every one to three years — but we understand that doesn’t always happen! If your head doesn’t feel supported, you need a new pillow. No matter what position you lie in, the pillow should be under your head (not your shoulders) and its thickness must keep your head to be in a normal position.
Do you have a showroom?
Yes! You can experience Sonno at Vortrell, 7030 Ang Mo Kio Ave 5, #01-07 Northstar @AMK, Monday to Friday - 9am to 6pm. More info here.
Why we exist?
You undoubtedly know that selecting a mattress is often a tedious, complicated old-fashioned process. In the past, you may have ended up buying what an unreputable salesman was pushing, someone who cared more about his or her financial bottom line than your true comfort. Maybe you had the opportunity to lie on a mattress for a few minutes before the purchase, or maybe you didn’t, but either way it wasn’t enough time to allow for such a critical, life-altering decision. No more.
Sonno is different. We make having a great night’s sleep easy. You conveniently order online, the exceptional mattress comes in a box and you try it in the comfort of your home for 100 wonderful nights, risk free.
What's behind the Sonno name?
‘Sonno’ was chosen as a name because it’s Italian for ‘slumber’. Your bed is your intimate and personal space where you should feel relaxed, safe and utterly at ease. We don't take that for granted and have made it our mission to live up to that promise every single day.
