Softside Waterbed Reviews and Buying Guide

Pictures of Softside Waterbed with Mattress, Bladder

As the name suggests, softside mattresses have a rigid foam cover with sturdy sides, while the water filled vinyl layer comes after the foam layer. It is available in all motion types, including free flow, semi-waveless and waveless. However, it is usually much more expensive compared to hardside beds.

Advantages of a Softside Waterbed

  • These mattresses don’t need to be put inside wooden frames and can be used in place of a regular mattress.
  • A softside waterbed looks like a conventional bed where you can use regular bed linens and pillows.
  • These usually come with inbuilt digital automatic heaters with lower heating costs than the hardside variety.
