May 6, 2024   By Clarisa Mcdonald

The mechanism of your pull-out sofa bed is perfectly functioning, but the mattress has become unbearable. 

Because of years of wear and tear, you look forward to unboxing a replacement mattress. Your warranty is not valid anymore.

Or maybe you’re just about to purchase a new one and know that you need a sofa bed with a quality mattress.

So what’s holding you back from buying that new sofa bed mattress or new pull out?

Most likely, it’s the uncertainty of the size. You also want to be sure that the type of mattress will guarantee you or your overnight guests a good night’s sleep. 

To top it off, you’re wondering which sofa bed mattress will fit aesthetically. Different options on Amazon just look overwhelming.

Well, it’s your lucky day! There are sofa bed mattress replacements that are even better than the “standard mattress quality.”

And if you’re canvassing for a new pull-out sofa bed, you’ll need an expert’s guide. 

So sit back, relax, and enjoy finding out about the best mattress replacement and a pull-out sofa bed in town that will provide comfort and functionality.

Determine Your Sofa Bed Mattress Size 

Most likely, your ancient pull-out has been knocked out of shape over the years. It’s not recommendable then to base the size of your sofa bed mattress on the measurements of your old one. 

Note that standard sleeper sofa sizes may also differ from standard mattress sizes. 

When replacing your existing sleeper sofa mattress, measure the dimensions of the inside of the bed frame and round down to the nearest cm. 

Based on classic brands from the Homes To Love article about 21 of the best sofa beds and how to choose the right one, the most common mattress size among pull-out sofa beds is the 3-seater (queen-size), followed by the 2.5 or 2 seater (double size). 

A 3-seater is around 150 cm – 190 cm in width and around 180 cm – 230 cm in length. 

A 2-seater, on the other hand, is 130 cm – 140 cm in width and around 180 cm – 200 cm in length. 

Gauge the Thickness of the Sofa Bed Mattress

Now, as soon as you’ve determined the size of your mattress based on the dimensions of the bed frame and the typical sizes in the market, make sure to gauge the thickness. 

This is important because, typically, sofa bed mattresses have a medium-firm feel without much depth to offer additional softness.

So what makes the Ecosa Rio Sofa Bed stand out from other sofa beds on the market? First, its thickness is as close as a standard mattress: 22.5 cm (almost 9 inches) thick. Imagine that high-density foam!

The Ecosa Rio Sofa bed combines comfort and support. With its premium cushioning foam, you can stay very comfy whether you’re just sleeping in, lounging, or both.

Nothing also beats the eco-friendliness of the Ecosa Rio Sofa Bed. The Rio Sofa is made from 400 post-consumer plastic bottles collected from oceans. Do you know of any other brand made from 100% OceanCycled™ Recycled Polyester?

Ecosa has reinvented the sofa bed by eliminating squeaks, metal springs, and bad designs. And compared to how it’s built, other brands can never be as stylish!

Imagine not having to worry about a replacement mattress… which you might have to deal with repeatedly after years of wear and tear unless you’re replacing it with an actual quality full-size mattress, which we’ll discuss next. 

How to Choose a Quality Mattress 

It is essential to consider the material and quality of the mattress before purchasing. In doing so, you must answer questions such as how often you plan to use the replacement mattress and who will use it.

Deciding on which type of material you will use will help you decide faster. Knowing the quality you need will also help you gauge how much you will spend.

Here are the 5 most common replacement mattresses you can choose from:

Traditional Memory Foam

Memory foam replacement helps eliminate motion transfer, which makes it very appealing. In addition, memory foam helps create a plush feeling and contours the sleeper’s body.

Memory foam mattresses are the lightest and easily foldable, making them a top choice for sofa bed mattresses. However, to avoid frequent replacement, you also have to look for memory foam that will last.

Gel Memory Foam

The gel in the gel memory foam sofa bed mattress helps generate coolness in the mattress. 

So if you want to exceed expectations and get the best of traditional memory foam and gel-infused foam, you better go for what can be the best sofa bed mattress replacement – the Ecosa mattress.

The Ecosa mattress has high-density G-7 cool gel memory foam for temperature stabilisation. Its ECO-tex memory foam is also very durable and breathable. 

Ecosa mattress lovers would agree that this is just the best memory foam ever.


What’s very interesting about blended or natural latex is its eco-friendly construction from rubber trees and soy plants. Similar to memory foam, latex moves with the weight of the sleeper. It’s also suitable for pressure relief and spine alignment.

However, you have to make sure that it’s not 100% synthetic because synthetic latex tends to break down faster.

An excellent latex mattress that can serve as a latex sofa bed mattress is the Ecosa Pure Mattress. It’s made for highly targeted support for pressure points such as the lower back, knees, shoulders, and hips. Thanks to its 7 Zone Pocket Springs, it has zoned precision support and perfect spinal alignment.

Polyurethane Foam

Although less luxurious, high-density polyurethane foam is an affordable alternative that effectively eliminates the feel of the sofa bed mechanism.

That’s why the Ecosa Rio Sofa bed is perfect with its density of 32 kg/m3. The comfort and support of the Rio Sofa Bed are not questionable, as it is patterned after the Ecosa Mattress and has guaranteed premium cushioning foam.

Innerspring or Coil

Innerspring mattresses or coil mattresses used to be the standard because of affordability and airflow. But they have the reputation of being the least comfortable, most likely causing your mattress problems right now. 

Unless they are a hybrid type like Ecosa’s Align or Pure Mattress, high-quality mattresses now seldom use traditional coil technology. What makes these Ecosa mattresses stand out from the century-old traditional spring mattresses is its long-lasting construction and virtually no partner disturbance.

A Budget Alternative: A Mattress Topper

If you’re dealing with budget constraints and itching to upgrade your pull-out sofa bed, you can always opt for a mattress topper! 

The Ecosa Topper is made of ultra-plush gel memory foam for cloud-like comfort, giving you a squishier sleep while restoring support and comfort to your current mattress. 

The Ecosa difference? It provides even weight distribution and premium comfort. Its eco-friendly Tencel cover is ultra-breathable, hypoallergenic, and machine washable. If you’re getting one anyway, why not go for CertiPUR-US certified and one with an OEKO-Tex Standard 100 label?

Why You Should Consider Upgrading Your Sofa Bed

Honestly, upgrading to a better and more durable sofa bed is something to consider. If you know that you’ll frequently be using it for your guest room, TV room, game room, or even a man cave, it’s wise to switch because those rooms deserve the comfiest sofa bed ever.

Why rely on a replacement mattress if the Ecosa Rio Sofa Bed does not even need one? You can read, play, binge on shows and movies, and hang out with family and friends in plush comfort with this amazing investment. 

Did you know that it’s also the most convenient? In just 10 seconds, you can quickly transform the sofa into a bed. One person can easily do it alone with a simple pull-out functionality without the help of any metal parts! Want to check it out? Visit the Rio Sofa Bed page, and in just a few scrolls down, you’ll see a simple video on how you can easily transform your sofa into a bed in just seconds.

Try it for yourself! The trial period is generous anyway. It’s 100 nights that you might just disregard after your first night of bliss. You even have a 5-year warranty card that will probably stay in your drawer untouched.
