BODYGUARD® – the Best Mattress Ever Tested

„Among the foam mattresses the Bodyguard from bett1.de remains the best mattress we ever had in the laboratory.“
(Stiftung Warentest, “test” 10/2018)


In the past major mattress tests since 2012, Stiftung Warentest has tested all sorts of different mattresses for their lying properties for the four most common body shapes. The result: The vast majority is not suitable for all common types. The BODYGUARD®, on the other hand, optimally supports all body shapes (in other words, one fits all), provides perfect ergonomics and has estab­lished itself as the mattress test winner. Tested for the first time in 2015 the BODYGUARD® Anti-Cartel-Mattress received the top rating of 1.7 („test“ 10/2018) and thereby remains the best mattress ever tested.

The BODYGUARD® performed better than all other mattresses tested so far – including cold foam, latex and spring mattresses as well as boxspring beds.

Stiftung Warentest Tests Online Mattresses

In May 2015, Stiftung Warentest had already chosen the BODYGUARD® as the leader in the mattress test. Right off the bat, it imme­diately was judged to be the best mattress ever tested, even compared to well-known brand-name manu­facturers. The sales success caught the attention of numerous imitators. More and more online retailers are now offering one fits all mattresses that can be conveniently delivered home and returned if customers are dissatisfied. Stiftung Warentest took a close look at these Internet retailers in September 2016 and examined their mattresses. The result: None of the tested models can match the BODYGUARD®. It is and remains the undis­puted leader even today.

Which Mattress for Which Body Type?

Whether you sleep on your side or back, the overall winner is the BODYGUARD® from bett1.de – the best mattress by a mile. According to Stiftung Warentest, the test winner is a “highly recommended mattress”, on which “large, heavy people as well as small, light ones” sleep soundly („test“ 7/2015). This is examined using the HEIA classification introduced by Stiftung Warentest for mattress tests, which classifies body shapes into specific groups based on their character­istics. The BODYGUARD® is one of the few mattresses that is best suited for all body types. It also protects against the so-called shoulder-folding effect, as confirmed by Stiftung Warentest. In the case of back sleepers, the torso sinks deeper than the shoulders, which can lead to snoring or tense muscles. This effect does not occur with the BODYGUARD®.

BODYGUARD® is Impressively Light

The BODYGUARD® Anti-Cartel-Mattress delivers on its promise. Its high durability was likewise confirmed by the Stiftung Warentest result in this category (rating: 1.6 – “test” 10/2018). For this test, a 140 kg roller is rolled over the mattress 60,000 times, among other things, and the develop­ment of heat and moisture is also included in this result. Thanks to the advanced mattress material, no body impression forms in the BODYGUARD®. Stiftung Warentest confirms: “The sleeping pad barely loses any height and retains its shape for a long time.” (article by Stiftung Warentest from the 24th September 2015 in reference to “test” 7/2015, www.test.de).

And the test winner also refutes the precon­ception that outstanding durability requires a high weight due to the foam density. Quite the contrary. Thanks to the light and innovative QXSchaum® Mattress Foam, the BODYGUARD® scored points for its very low weight, resulting in easy transport and optimum handling (rating: 1.2 – “test” 10/2018).

Safe and Clean

In the “ambient air contamination” and “hazardous substances” categories, the BODYGUARD® likewise received an evaluation of “very good”. “It is clean” and contains no “softeners, flame retardants or pesticides”, according to Stiftung Warentest. The test laboratory was also unable to detect “any airborne substances that are hazardous to health” (article by Stiftung Warentest from the 24th September 2015 in reference to “test” 7/2015, www.test.de). In the test criterion, “Health and Environment”, Stiftung Warentest gives the BODYGUARD® an overall score of 2.2 (“test” 10/2018).

HyBreeze® Cover with the Best Possible Rating

The cover protects the mattress and plays a significant role in sleeping comfort. For this reason, the HyBreeze® Cover of the BODYGUARD® Anti-Cartel-Mattress was also tested and received a rating of “very good” (1.4 – “test” 10/2018). Evaluation criteria for this excellent result were the wash­ability, behaviour when wet, and the processing. The BODYGUARD® made a great impression in all of the categories. The HyBreeze® Cover is removable, wash­able, fast-drying, and high-quality.

Service-Check: Flawless

Symbols show: impeccable delivery and service

In addition to the product, important quality criteria are the service and the purchase procedure. “Bett1.de handled this in the least compli­cated way”, according to Stiftung Warentest (article by Stiftung Warentest from the 7th September 2016, www.test.de). Once again bett1.de received an excellent rating. In all cases, the mattress arrived at the test buyers several days before the delivery deadline. The return within the 100 Night Trial was as easy as promised: the money was refunded within the statutory period and the pick-up went off without a hitch.


The BODYGUARD® Mattress, which can be ordered in all of the common sizes, received an overall rating of 1.7 („test“ 10/2018) – and thus is the best mattress ever tested.

The summary of Stiftung Warentest: “The ranking of the foam mattresses is lead by the initially in 2015 and now again tested Bodyguard from Bett1.de for 199 Euro. All body types sleep well on it.” (test 10/2018)
