Best Latex Mattresses Reviews 2017:
How to Buy the Best Right Now

What a memory foam mattress can’t do, a latex mattress does much better. In addition to offering horizontal comfort and support, latex beds also offer more bounce than their memory foam competition.

When it comes right down to it, latex beds come in three varieties: blended/hybrid, all-natural and synthetic latex.

All latex mattresses are made to maximize air flow (breathability) without compromising on firmness and comfort. This helps to eliminate the “sleeping hot” tendency experienced in memory foam varieties. The cooler surface of a latex bed can go a long way to eliminate restlessness and improve sleep.

And while a memory foam bed off-gasses, latex beds, especially all-natural latex mattresses, rarely fume. Synthetic latex, on the other hand, only fumes mildly and only for a few first days.

Still, if you are a green and health-conscious buyer with a hawk-eye for eco-friendliness stickers, you might like it that the market for latex mattresses is headed the organic-rubber way with more all-natural latex units hitting the shelves every couple of months.

However, like any mattress latex has its low hides too.

The most glaring one happens to be the very feature that is most appealing to most latex bed owners: Latex is huge on the bounce. It all comes down to personal preference, though.

The Best Natural Latex Mattress Of 2017

An all natural latex sleeping surface goes beyond providing comfort and optimal horizontal support. This is an organic product, meaning chances of brewing up an allergy reaction are slim to null for most people—and are less likely to off-gas too.

Authentic natural latex mattresses also do provide the most bounce—again, a splendid consideration if you prefer the quick responsiveness and spring feel.

However, all natural latex beds are the most expensive of the category. If you’ll be moving the bed around the home, you might find a latex mattress to be the heaviest of the bunch as well. Overall best 100% natural latex mattress in 2017 is Zenhaven Mattress.

Zenhaven Mattress

Above all beds that we looked at this year, Saatva’s Zenhaven Mattress is the best 100% natural latex mattress in 2017. Their line of natural latex sleep surfaces is suited for the folks that prefer a softer latex feel.

The mattress is flappable too, so you’ll find that both the top and bottom surfaces are in principle bouncy. However, the bottom one feels firmer than the top.

That is awesome for two reasons: first, you get to swap sides for a different feel for you or your sleep partner. And second, you get to flip sides and avoid the indenting that comes with sleeping in the same spot for long.

They managed to bring together a commendable 4 layers:

  • The top-most layer is an inch thick and made out of quilted latex for even more comfort.

  • The second and bottom-most layers are alike and provide a cushy, supportive feel (many thanks to the 100% Joma wool) while incorporating cool sleeping and covering for the supportive core on either side.

  • The second layer is thicker at 3” tall with Talalay latex made out of 25-30 ILD for pressure relief and support.

  • The third layer is 3” thick as well but packs 30-35 ILD density and provides the firmer latex support base for when the Zenhaven mattress is flipped.

The Zenhaven mattress redefines sleep time by making it comfortably bouncy, customizable, supportive, while offering a long-lasting sleeping surface solution.

However, all-natural latex sleep pads are typically costly. If you want a latex feel in your sleep without the headache of breaking your first wallet commandment, a hybrid mattress can help — plus they almost offer the same feel.

  • Latex Type: 10” Organic Talalay latex

  • Features:  100% Joma wool for heat regulation/Superior organic material/Non-chemical flame retardants/GOLS certified organic

  • Trial: 120-days, 20-year warranty, with $99 full-service shipping/delivery

Top 3 Latex Hybrid Mattresses in 2017

Casper Mattress by Casper

Try The Casper Mattress if you prefer latex-on-foam comfort and support. The company has won multiple awards for their innovative and decidedly superior latex product, and we can tell why.

They combine 4 layers to masterfully blend a memory foam-cushy effect: an adaptive transition layer of foam on top of a responsive one for keeping sleepers balanced. Right beneath it is an open-cell layer for cooling and air flow, as well as a firm bottom layer for superior support and durability.

  • Latex Type: Latex hybrid

  • Features: Open-cell technology/Hypoallergenic/4-layer foam construction

  • Trial: 100-Night trial with 10-year warranty/Online-only purchase

Latex Hybrid by Nest Beddings

The most notable firsts here will include the bounce and firmness. The surface is very responsive and seems to work well with 1100 individually pocketed coils beneath. We feel Nest made a good job of limiting motion transfer by using pocketed coils, an aspect any sleeper with a restless sleeper will appreciate.

As for firmness, the Latex Hybrid feels very firm for a latex option—we’d give it a 9/10 score for firmness. In fact, if this is a perfect support base for you, and you enjoy a firm latex pad but don’t want to sleep warm on a memory foam mattress and appreciate more bounce, you might prefer Nest Beddings’ offering.

  • Latex Type: Wool-Dunlop-Coils Combo

  • Features: 12” thick dual-layer/5-zone pocketed coils/Air flow wool layer/Premium Dunlop latex foam

  • Trial: 100 Nights/20-year Warranty

PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Latex Mattress

PlushBeds offers The Botanical Bliss variety of 100% natural latex in various sizes and varieties. We liked the 10” and 12” ones.

The feel of either is pretty much classic. You also get a lot of value for the price. To start with, PlushBeds choose 100% organic New Zealand wool and natural cotton to ramp up softness, comfort, breathability and maximum pressure relief.

Right below that, you get a 6” thick of ARPICO premium core that combines with the foundational spruce wood to offer amazing buoyancy, support, and slumber-time fun.

We like that they did tap into lean manufacturing best practices. We feel that might have helped to dent the price down compared to others.

  • Latex Type: 100% Natural Talalay latex

  • Features: USDA, GOLS Certified organic latex/GOTS Certified cotton materials/No chemical flame retardants/Orthopedic foundation for support

  • Trial: 100-day testing period with an attractive 25-year warranty, 100-day comfort adjustment

Best Latex Hybrid Mattresses

All-natural latex sleep pads are typically costly, relatively heavy for even adults to move about, and usher some motion transfer—something that some might not like.

If you want a classic latex feel in your sleep but without the headache of breaking your first wallet commandment for a 100% latex matt, a hybrid mattress can help—plus they almost offer the same feel.

If you are looking for an excellent roundup of cushy comfort and superior pressure relief, The Casper Mattress is a good option to check out. Most owners seem to be satisfied with Casper as far as feedback can tell.

But while the company claims its sleeping pad is a “universal” mattress, you might want to test it to find out if it’s fulfilling to you.

  • Latex Type: Latex hybrid

  • Features: Open-cell technology/Hypoallergenic/4-layer foam construction

  • Trial: 100-Night trial with 10-year warranty/Online-only purchase

3. Sleep On Latex Mattress

Latex Mattress Type: All-Natural Sri Lankan, 9” Dunlop Latex with wool cover layer

Features: GOLS Certified organic/Fume-free/Organic cotton cover/Pure, natural Talalay latex/Non-synthetic foam

Trial: 30 Nights/10-year factory warranty

The Sleep On Latex mattress is for you if you cherish a firm sleeping surface minus the shortcomings presented by a memory foam mattress.

This mattress is not one to off-gas, is hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, and breathable. All you get is a wool-scent, which we found to be so much better than some toxic chemical based synthetic material. The wool layer ensures you sleep cool for anyone who does not like to sleep warm, helps jump responsiveness, as well as comfort and air flow.

All these aspects combine to give a firm, comfortable, supportive, buoyantly balanced and sleep-inducing feel while lying on it—at a bargain too.

Top 3 Best All Latex Mattresses Of 2017

1. Brooklyn Bedding

This Phoenix, Arizona Company has operated since 1995, and we sure do like the selection of the three models of latex mattresses they have to offer.

On a scale of one to ten, we’d categorize all three under the 4, 5, and 7 marks regarding firmness. Compared to say, Casper’s latex option, Brooklyn Beddings did really set out to please people with varying preferences instead of offering an apparent universal sleeping surface solution.

There’s the top, cotton-polyester cover that’s an inch thick. It helps with air flow, cooling the sleeper and offering a cushy feel atop the firmer support layers beneath. Right beneath is a comfort dual-layer core consisting of two, 2” soft layers: Talalay latex on Dunlop latex layers. The foundation layer is made up of 4” base foam for support.

For most people, this construct will help alleviate back and joint pain, relief pressure points while still offering a good serving of buoyancy and durability and comfort for different sleepers’ bed habits.

  • Latex Score: 9.3/10

  • Customer Satisfaction: 9/10

  • Value for Money: 9/10

2. PlushBeds

PlushBeds makes it to this top latex mattresses list for offering an organic latex foam sleeping surface that’s well constructed, offers superior quality components and beddings, and all within an affordable spectrum.

This 9” (It packs a 3” Talalay latex and 6” APRICO Organic latex layer) all-latex bed is luxurious. If you want a comfortable surface that is well supported for various sleeping habits and a long-lasting sleeping room solution, PlushBeds is a decent option.

  • Latex Score: 8.8/10

  • Customer Satisfaction: 8.7/10

  • Value for Money: 8.6/10

The comfy sleeping surface is made continuously and entirely of Dunlop latex. The top layer is a 3” Talalay latex bed surface and is topped on the firmer 6” Dunlop latex support base.

  • Latex Score: 8.4/10

  • Customer Satisfaction: 8.2/10

Best Latex Mattress 2017 Buying Guide

Choosing a latex bed surface can easily turn out to be the most challenging bedding shopping trip. Because there are many aspects to consider and even more and different latex pads brands to choose from, it can be confusing

But it doesn’t have to be. Here is our checklist of the 4 things to look out for in a latex mattress.

All latex or Latex Hybrid?

Briefly, here is how both compare on various aspects:

  • On average, all-latex mattresses cost $1900 compared to hybrid latex models which sell at $800 on average.

  • While the average life of a hybrid spans 6 years on average, an all-latex mattress averages 8 years.

  • Hybrids offer the best general support compared to all-latex beds. In all-latex beds, mattresses with Dunlop latex in the as the base layer are reported to give the best support. However, Talalay latex beds provide the most comfort if the Talalay layer is placed in or near the comfort core.

  • Natural latex beds are the most expensive and are heaviest. However, they are the most durable, offer great combination of comfort and support, and are eco-friendly.

Dunlop vs. Talalay?

We recommend going with Talalay if you prefer a softer feel and Dunlop for firmer support.

Latex Density

Consider the Indentation Load Deflection (ILD) of the latex used. This refers to how much weight per square foot the mattress can handle. Generally, the higher the ILD marked on the label (in pounds/lbs), the firmer the latex mattress. This measure is used to determine how firm, hence how supportive it’ll be under varying pressure over time. Consequently, the higher the density of a latex bed surface, the higher the chance that it’ll last longer.

Terms of Sale

Be sure to shop around to find the best deal. These include the longest trial times, longest and most comprehensive warranties, money back guarantees, availability of financing and what options are actually available, as well as delivery times and cost.

Conclusion

The best of all-natural latex mattresses is the one that gives off a sensational, grandeur feeling at first glance. Taking a plunge on it shouldn’t disappoint, either. However, choosing the best latex bed is a highly personal matter. Fortunately, all of the latex bed brands we’ve listed here come with generous trial periods.
