Aireloom is a brand of California based E.S. Kluft & Company that is sold exclusively in mattress retailers across the US. Its claim to fame is their patented 'Aireloom lift' that increases the areas of low pressure when one is laying on the mattress. This gives the sense that the bed is cradling you. However, there are common complaints about some offerings' durability with some claiming sagging issues with some models. Additionally, price is a potential issue with the brand as their prices are much higher than other competitors.
Astrabeds manufactures a latex mattress that they sell exclusively online. Their mattress comes with multiple firmness options. They also provide a dual-sided option so that partners with different preferences can still have what they want on their side. Some customers have had good experiences, but there are some that had issues with initial comfort and durability.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Aireloom in this match up!

Getting a sense of how customers feel about mattresses can direct shoppers towards good options. Unfortunately, sleepers don't always feel great about these mattresses. Some are happy with the feel and comfort of their mattress, but others complain about how it feels for them. If you are pondering buying one, take a look below for more specifics.
Mattress support is important for keeping your spine well aligned and sleeping well. These mattresses provide a good level of support -- above average overall. This is important if you don't have a supportive sleeping surface right now. Most customers describe these mattresses as providing a good level of support initially.
Edge support is the measure of how much support there is along the sides of the mattress. These mattresses provide solid edge support overall, but some may experience sinking or contouring along the edge of the mattress.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
The bowling ball and density tests are good measures of mattress firmness. It is also a great test for measuring evenness of support across the surface. Overall, these mattresses will give a good amount of evenness of support.
Unfortunately, customers don't always love the durability of these mattresses. While some sleepers reported feeling comfortable, others describe having issues faster than average. If you are thinking about buying, read up on the return and warranty policies beforehand.
Some folks were very pleased with their mattresses, but others had issues. Even though there are those that like these mattresses, overall they have lower customer satisfaction than average. Read on below for more information from customers if you are interested in buying.
Some of the customers don't feel that the mattresses support them well enough. Though most find these mattresses comfortable initally, if you are heavier in build, review the mattress specifications before purchasing.
For those that need longevity in their edge support., some customers report that these mattresses don't work for them on edge support.
These mattresses may not give the lasting comfort that you are striving to find. Over a shorter than average time period, some sleepers have had issues with durability and feel. If you would consider yourself larger or looking for something with lasting support, one of these mattresses may provide initial comfort, but do a last check on the mattress specifications and return policies before purchasing.
BI have had my Rip Van Winkle Natural Dreams with Luxury Cashmere King bed for 12 years. Many could say that is a long life span however I would like to provide long term customer experience details. Extreme sagging from year 1. Called Sealy's where purchased and they came out and said natural use. Ridiculous. Offered me store credit of $1000 on a $5000 King Mattress.
2. This mattress is so darn heavy that it would take 3-4 strong adults to move it (I've moved 4 times in 12 years...everyone says it's the heaviest mattress to move)
3. After point 2 was made, can you imagine flipping and rotating this bed on your own? It takes 2 adults and still is ridiculous.
4. In addition to sagging it forms to your body so to speak so after 3 years it has looked like a body shape of a 200 lb woman and hump in the middle and a less dented body shape of a 160lb man. This causes lots of cumbersome rotating & flippingwhich is very difficult.
5. I've reached my life span of a $5000 (price paid on sale) mattress with a 25 year warranty after 12 years.
6. I'm currently mattress shopping and can buy a new Sealy for 1/3 of the price and not care if lasts 5-7 years.
Bought a aireloom mattress 6 months ago from sit and sleep. Worst mattress I have ever owned. Sags so bad that I wake up with a backache every morning. Sis and sleep well not do a thing about it
My husband and I have never been so cozy comfortable. We have the split king with adjustable base.
I immediately was relieved from hip pain that I had from a fairly new Temperpedic mattress.
The only complaint we have is: WE DON'T WANT TO GET OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING.
We purchased our Aireloom Chantille Ultra Plush Euro Top Eastern King mattress from Mancini's in Mountain View, CA., Nov. 2012. What had sold us on spending $8101.00 on a mattress was that when we tested it in the showroom we did not feel the movement of our partner. For us, who are light sleepers, this is a major deal. Our body was supported and it was very comfortable. A bit too high for us, so we exchanged the tall box spring for one that was several inches shorter.
We received that mattress and straight away there was a problem. Not Mancini's problem, we would need to contact an independent inspector (Premier Inspection Services,LTD.), at our expense, to analyze the mattress and make a recommendation. He did, and basically said that the problem was in our head.
Here it is 2016 and the mattress still does not live up to the mattress that we tested in the showroom. The shape is trapezoidal, and we feel every movement that our partner makes. Rolling over, change in position, sneezing and coughing are all felt by the other.
We feel gypped and misled. How could we have been so stupid. We could have purchased a cheaper mattress and changed it out when it no longer was comfortable.
We initially bought a tempurpedic based on many recommendations. 30 days later and my back was an absolute mess. I could hardly move and I was at the chiropractor 6 times in 30 days. The chemical smell was horrible and I was sweating my butt off. My wife could not bear to sleep in it. I even had my kids jump on it to try to 'break it in'.
So, we went back to the store and the sales person was very helpful in assisting with the problems that we were having. My wife stumbled across the Aireloom mattresses and suggested I try it out. I fell in love with the support and comfort immediately. The price kind of scared me initially, but with 30 days of hell behind me, I was up for anything. I like the fact that there are many 'real' materials in this mattress and it is not a cookie cutter mattress made out of chemicals. The delivered the mattress promptly and our first night was heaven. Support, cool and comfort. We noticed immediately that when the two of us were in the middle of the bed, there was considerable sag to the mattress. I was kind of perplexed by this until I was on the floor playing with our dog and my wife and kids were horsing around in the bed. I noticed that there was significant flex in the box spring support slats when they were rolling around on the bed. Being an amish bed frame, the box is supported by 3/4 inch oak slats that run from side to side. I made up support blocks positioned under the slats in the middle of the bed and the problem was rectified. This bed is as comfortable today as it was the day we bought it.
This is so interesting....A couple of years ago, my mom gave me her brand new, Aireloom Hybrid Bamboo mattress as she decided to purchased a different size (mine is a queen). I live in an older building, and there is a place in my bedroom floor where it's uneven, so when I started to feel like I had to roll uphill to turn over in bed, I figured it was the floor, not the mattress; however, my handyman used his balance to show me that the floor underneath my bed is indeed level, which was so baffling to me, as I feel as though I am sleeping in a ditch when I am on my side of the bed.
I have a solid platform bed, with storage drawers, so it can't be chalked up to an unsteady base or bed frame. I stumbled upon this site accidentally this evening, while researching mattresses, and am now 100% convinced that my mattress is to blame, and I am not crazy.
Not only that, but the mattress weighs about a million pounds, and sits inside the platform, so that changing the fitted sheet is akin to a strenuous gym workout. Just lifting the mattress is ridiculous. Once, while lifting the corner, I felt the fabric tear, on the underside of the mattress.
My mom kept telling me how expensive the mattress was, that it was a really good mattress. I can't lie; it's super cushy and comfortable, but the sagging is beyond annoying. I have propped it up under one side with books/magazines to even it out, but I can promise you I won't be spending my own money on an aireloom, when I am ready to replace this one.
When we tried this bed in the store my husband felt very comfortable as soon as he laid on it. I felt like it was a little firm, but thought I could get use to it. From the first night it has been a nightmare for both of us. We are exhausted! My back, shoulders, hips ache. It has gotten so bad after two weeks I have gone to the spare bedroom. My husband is not sleeping well and it feels like only after two weeks there is already a body impression on his side of the bed. He feels that the bed sleeps hot. I have not noticed that yet. Very disappointed overall.
Do not even think of buying an airloom bed. We bought one from Macys in Oceanside. It began to sag within about a month or two.
Made the mistake of waiting too long to call the company. You have 90 days. After that, they came out and agreed that it sagged , but since it wasn't over an inch and a half they would not take it back. Actually the bed sagged an inch and the box spring sagged another 1/2 inch which equals the 1 1/2 inches but since the box spring was involved they would not take it back. Macy's refused to help. We sold the bed less than a year later with over a $3000.00 loss.
My advice is do not get involved with Airloom.
I purchased an Aireloom Mattress. The store that I bought it from no longer carries Aireloom. The inspector from the independent inspection company determined that the mattress failed. Originally, Linda Menzel from Aireloom wanted me to spend about $1420 to ship the mattress to California from New Jersey and back. When I pointed out that they had a plant in PA, Ms. Menzel stated that it would cost $620 to ship the mattress to and from PA.
When I accepted their offer to ship the mattress to PA, Aireloom wanted me to sign an agreement not to disparage as well as waive any future legal rights. After questioning Ms. Menzel, she stated that even if the mattress were defective when it was returned to me, I could not sue Aireloom. By adding the requirement of not to disparage and to waive all future rights, they violated the terms of their warranty and thus defrauded me.
In my opinion, Aireloom is a terrible company to deal with because they do not honor their warranty. If they did this to me, do you think they will treat you any differently?
I bought an aireloom mattress from OC mattress in Costa Mesa CA. Was told when I bought this that there was no memory foam, but alas this was untrue. After purchase I noticed heat retention and complained to the store and manufacturer. Found out that it contained 7% memory foam. After several months have noticed sagging and 'holes.'' Paid lots of money and disappointed. Would not recommend.
If you're researching a new mattress please read the above reviews and DO NOT buy an Aireloom product. Like the others above have written within weeks my wife and I found our new mattress to be forming deep depressions. We called Aireloom and they sent an inspector and the results were that the 'holes' were within expected body depressions. That's the last Aireloom I'll ever buy. Absolute junk.
3 years ago my husband and I made the trek out to our local mattress retailer. We were buying two mattresses - one for personal use and the other for a duplex for our parents. Decided on two Sertas when at the last moment.....I spotted the Aireloom. I had to test it and I fell in love. It was the most comfortable bed I had ever tried! But alas, the honeymoon period ended and we were left with a mattress that had some serious sagging issues after only 3 years. Some might say that is a good life for a mattress but I have to point out the only two other mattresses we have purchased for personal use lasted at least 10 years each and with no sagging. We only replaced them because we wanted to try newer models. Aireloom - I wanted to love you! Love you for being handmade, being the cushiest bed on the showroom floor, for being the sexiest in looks and for being handmade in CA. Sorry but I can love you no more. Moving on to a new lover.
I wish I had ready reviews like these before spending over $3000 on our Aireloom in 2012. We expected this mattress to last 20-25 years. When we first got the mattress I couldn't have been more satisfied. It was firm, supportive and so good for my bad back recovering from surgery. Within a few months I noticed I was making a sag in the bed. I tried moving around in the bed more and that helped for a while but now my husband and I are so miserable sleeping in this bed that we can't wait to replace it. We have flipped it end to end but I'd rather return to an old fashioned innerspring mattress that I can flip over. It just makes sense that with more sleeping surface the mattress will last longer. I will for sure NEVER spend $3K on a mattress again.
I have had a real problem with sciatica over the last couple of years. While this mattress has not prevented it, better body pressure distribution seems to have really helped. I don’t wake up in the AM tired and feeling achey.
Macy's was a pleasure to work with throughout and the mattress has been very comfortable so far.
We had been looking for a new mattress for over 2 years, and finally landed on the Airloom Hybrid. Already on the first night, I noticed when I woke up in the middle of the night, my hip and shoulder pain I would typically feel before I rolled to the other side was gone! This mattress really takes the pressure off.
I took my time to find the right bed for my needs and really liked the Aireloom Hybrid. When I returned to buy it, my salesperson was tied up with another customer so that allowed me a good half hour to lie on the bed to make sure it was the one for me. Within 2 weeks of owning the mattress I noticed it wasn't springing back into shape. I've only owned it a month now and it has such deep depressions from my body (and I'm only 5' tall and 115 lbs!) that it feels almost as uncomfortable as my old mattress and is hurting my back. I've informed the salesperson I worked with that I'll be returning this one and hoping she can find something that will work as well as I hoped the Aireloom would. Highly disappointed.
Tried this bed 3 times at Macy’s laid on it , sales women was great she recommended this bed I looked at a few in mac
We tried 3 different mattresses in 3 months before picking this one. The others were either too firm or too soft, but this one was absolutely perfect. Plush, but with the right amount of support. Finally getting the best nights sleep. Waking up feeling rested, and not sore. If you are picky about your mattress, this is the one to try....you wont regret it.
Love this mattress, so comfortable, soft, best sleep in a long time.
Shopping for a new mattress had turned into a nightmare, between pop up stores and online beds in a box/bag I'd given up. Then I thought Macy's that were my parents would go. Our salesman was great listened to our needs and pointed us to several options, gave us the time we needed to decide. Delivery and set up was a breeze. Great mattress! ! Love it.
Very comfortable, conforms to body for a comfortable night sleep. I have spinal problems and this has been a big help. It lets me toss and turn with no problems. I tried many mattress' in the store, and this one worked. The salesman was wonderful it took us 2 hours and many jumping from mattress to mattress, his patience was above and beyond.
My purchase could not have been accomplished without the help of the OUTSTANDING Members of the Macy's team in San Francisco at Union Square. Their care and attention to my unique needs and wishes got this very important purchase accomplished. Lili Spagnoletta helped me this time and with my previous mattress over 15 years ago. For this purchase she got her Customer Service Manager Lori to help secure financing options. They Really Care!
We tested out this bed in the store and it was, by far, the most comfortable! We tried at least a dozen beds that were 5X the cost and this one was the best. The delivery was seamless and we can't wait to sleep on this tonight!
Took a couple of days to get use too, since I was sleeping on a mattress over 20 years old. Now I love it, and would definitely recommend it. Also had great delivery service on a very hot day!
It's firm and yet soft. Very comfortable! Great Buy!
It’s been exactly one year since purchase. Have called for questionablydefect internally. Mattress sags on one side causing excessive backache for me yet other side is firm. My weight 215 lbs. we purchased for a it being firm and king size. Compared to a foam inner coil mattress purchased in 2003, now 2019, this mattress is better built and low indentation of body points on bed. For the Airloom, I have to wake up completely to turn over. Yet when testing was done on Airloom, it was visually different between side and what measurement that was taken only involved a string pulled taught across mattress and a card with lines drawn to distinguish body indentation. There wasn’t any weighted pressure on points where indents were to measure any foam or spring collapse. I have now received letter from company I purchased from saying it meets standards under warranty. I’m doing a follow up for better practices to measure internal, not visual, of mattress. Over $4000 spent with less than 1 year of use. My queen foam/coil mattress after 16 years outperforms the Airloom and my back doesn’t hurt.
I have owned my Aireloom mattress for about 11 years. I called and emailed customer service and never received an answer. After 3 weeks of trying, I finally reached someone who was extremely rude. I weigh 110 pounds and the indentation of my body is so deep that I can't move at night. When I asked if they have any kind of warranty they said they can't guaranty anything, without asking what the problem is. I would not suggest purchasing this procuct
I really wanted to love my AIRLOOM CORONADO mattress. I wanted to support the local California business and own a handcrafted bed. But what happened is that I wasted $5000 and now have a giant piece of trash in my bedroom that I have to dispose of. After only 4 months, I noticed the mattress was starting to sag but I didn't despair because the mattress has a warranty. But this is just a scam because it took multiple phone calls and emails to get Airloom to send out a mattress inspector. This inspector makes all the movements of performing an inspection, taking measurements and photos. But, in the end, Airloom does nothing. Like other unfortunate customers, I will be returning to the mattress store to purchase something with a better reputation.
It's disappointing how the quality of this mattress doesn't match its price. This mattress sags and has given my husband and I lower back problems. I didn't realize how the bed was causing my lower back problems until I had to travel for work a few weeks ago and the very first night back, my lower back pain started again. We've also attempted to rule out other problems (sleep with pillow support between knees when sleeping on the side, sleep without a pillow when sleeping on back, put a small pillow underneath knees when sleeping on back) to no avail. My husband and I have gone to chiropractors for alignments, yet the lower back problems persist; we've concluded that the issue is the bed and have already ordered a new mattress from another provider. Good riddance!
Worst mattress ever for the money. The tufted buttons make it very uncomfortable.
I love that this mattress is healthy. Toxic chemicals do known to cause respiratory illness do not continually outgas from this mattress. This mattress is made of natural materials, latex, 100% organic cotton, and wool. My 3 year old sone is very prone to respiratory illness. This mattress doesn't add to him being sick. This mattress is also very, very comfortable. I love it.View More Reviews
I thought I researched high and low for the best bed latex bed I could find for my new family. I was thrilled to find this highly recommended company online... until I actually had to sleep on it, and then deal with customer service. My partner was quickly kicked out of the bed to the guest room as the minute he came in, we rolled to his side of the bed and any movement anyone made, moves the bed like a wave. On top of that we get back and shoulder pain in ways we do not on any other mattress we sleep on! I've expressed all of this to customer service several times for several months and still nothing. Stay away from this company.
I had never tried a latex mattress before so I had no idea how we would like our new bed. Of course I read all the reviews and did quite a bit of research before our purchase. My husband and I have loved the bed ever since our first night. It is solid, but soft, firm but not hard. There is sufficient support and a lot of comfort. We are very happy with this latex mattress system. The only tricky part was putting all the layers down exactly one on top of the other. Zipping it closed was not a problem and the quality of the enclosure is very good.
Well i've been sleeping on this mattress since may of last year and I think I probably should've gone with the softest version. I don't really like firm beds and I switched the layers to better accommodate my sleeping preferences, however, that didn't really help. I would love a softer bed. If you like beds on the firmer side, then you'll probably love this, but not me. Aside from that, I don't like how difficult this bed is to set up. The layers come packaged separate from the rest of the mattress and you have to zip the layers inside of the mattress, and that is a pain in the neck. Not to mention how heavy each part is. Not only that, but if you aren't careful while zipping those layers into the mattress, then you'll damage the foam. Overall, if you are in need of a firm bed and you have back problems, then I would suggest this mattress, but if not, save your money and get a cheap one.
After an exhaustive search through countless websites, and speaking with many in the industry I had settled on a mattress offered by Habitat Furnishings when, by chance, I came across Astrabeds. I liked what I was seeing and made the last minute switch to the Harmony bed. I do not regret it for a second. It was love that first night. I did not require an adjustment period nor did I experience any of the soreness others have while transitioning to a new mattress. While I have had the bed for less than a month, I cannot emphasize enough how pleased I have been so far. Also, the pillows are equally amazing. Just the right density and buoyancy yet remain light. I was very happy with my bamboo pillows but Astrabeds offered free pillows at the time of purchase so there was nothing to lose. Now they are the primary pillows we use with the bamboo relegated to the closet.
Mu husband and I have found our new mattress comfortable from the first night we slept on it.
I supports our bodies from head to foot, but without feeling we are sleeping on a board or extra firm mattress. Although my husband did not think we needed to replace our previous mattress, he admits now
he is sleeping better and more comfortably. Thanks Astrabeds for making me right!
We are both so pleased we chose Astrabed and the Solace bed.
I have my pads sorted so as to firm up the bed. I may need to get another 90 pad(firmest) to add more firmness.
The cover zippers pull apart. The zipper teeth separate as one tries to close the cover. Huge pain in the butt trying to reintegrate the teeth.
I need one more firm pad but now concerned that (A) can't get the cover unzipped due to teeth separation and (B) won't be able to zip the cover closed again.
I am sleeping better.
What I am curious about is how long until the latex weakens so as to lose integrity. Only time will tell which is why I am giving only 4 stars. With such short usage time I'm not comfortable giving any more stars.
I should be asked for a review in a year.
As I sleep alone I am concerned about the wear on just that one side. The mattress weighs a lot so it's impossible for one person to rotate so as to get even wear.
It's almost too difficult to find enough positive adjectives to describe this mattress. It's wonderfully comfortable, supportive and just dreamy to sleep in. When I get in it at the end of the day, I just say, "Ahhhh". The only downside is that i'm not awake long enough to savor it enough.
I received this bed two weeks ago. The first thing I noticed about it is that it was heavy - heavier than any bed I'd ever lifted. But all that weight is pure organic latex. The moment I rolled out the bed and plopped down on it, I felt I was laying on sixty pounds of very high quality product.
On the other hand... I got a 'medium' firmness bed and it seems quite firm to me. In retrospect, I'm thinking I should have either gotten the harmony bed with three inches of extra height to compress or gotten the sonoma bed in the 'soft' firmness. As many of the other reviews have pointed out, this is by far the firmest bed they offer. If you're a side sleeper, you may want to also consider these two alternative options. But again, this is a question of suitability to my own sleeping style rather than product quality.
I bought this bed in December so I have had it for 9 mos now. When I first slept in it it was too hard and my back was sore when I woke up. Customer service recommended I switch the layers around, which I did and it still didn't help. I asked for the softest combination I could get so I could sink into it. It seemed like my shoulder was kind of jambing up because of the firmness. I called again and customer service said they would send me out a new layer free of charge And that I just needed to donate the old layer. Super easy. Customer service was always really helpful. Once I got the soft layer on top of another soft layer it has been the most comfortable bed I have ever owned. I love the fact that I know I am not breathing any toxic fumes at night and I wake up feeling really good and my body doesn't hurt. The only problem with it is it is soooo comfortable that I hate to go on vacation now and sleep in hotel rooms because I miss my bed!
We have noted Mattress holds heat, Partner had to get thick pad because of heat. To put mattress together they should send out instructions if you buy split with different levels of firmness. Had to call to find out how to put together.
We are very pleased with our Serenity Queen mattress. I was a bit worried about buying without having the chance to try it in a store but the delivery was flawlessm, it was very easy to unpack and put on the bed and my husband and I like it very much. One caution: we both like a firm mattress and ordered such but I guess our old mattress had settled in more than I'd realized. The mattress was too firm for me as I'm thin and it felt almost too hard. I added a memory foam pad and it is fine but it would have been better to order one that was a bit softer. I would definitely buy from Astra Bed again
Love that is eco friendy. We got medium firmess, but found it to be too soft. After talking with a costumer representative, he suggested rearranging the layers. Which is easily done, but each individual leayer is heavy and difficult to move. We still have to try the new arrangement, but trust we will be satisfied at the end with the firmess we want.
For the past year I have been suffering from the lingering pain from a lower back injury. After countless massages, physical therapy, and regular yoga practice, I noticed that my symptoms usually diminished during my frequent trips away from home. It must be my bed! So I embarked upon a quest to find a replacement. My physical therapist recommended tempurpedic, but I didn't like the price tag or the multiple reports of allergic reactions I encountered online. I found many organic mattress retailers, but they were all of questionable authenticity and varying price points. After a long search, I found astrabeds and decided to give this mattress a try. So far I have been sleeping more soundly than I have in years.
Took a leap of faith on this bed, since, you know, the store exists on the internet. I felt comfortable with the guarantee, and I'm so glad I made this purchase. After ample research, including a visit to a competitor's awkwardly staffed storefront, from what I could tell, astrabeds offered the highest quality at the most reasonable price. The bed itself is great -- sturdy, but with enough give that it feels comfortable (I don't like a "sinking" mattress), it is supportive and also absorbs/diffuses most motion, making it great for couples, or you know, your special bed friend. I had neck pain and often strained my neck leading up to this purchase, 4 months later, that has essentially dissipated. I recommend this bed to all my friends and have even invited some of them to sleep over BECAUSE IT'S THAT GREAT.
- Mattress and adjustable base are very comfortable. Assembly was easy - although I would consider the full setup option due to the weight and awkwardness of moving the bases.
- We had read some comments regarding selecting the firmness of the mattresses. This lead us to chooses too soft an option. I would suggest going with what you use today for firmness. Exchange of mattress layers was easy, but delays the time you are ready to use the mattress.
- 90 day trial with no hassle return is a misleading. For various reasons, it took 80 days for us to get everything fully delivered. That leaves very little time to evaluate the bed fully setup. Also, the 90 day trial does not include the adjustable base. So, if we decide to return the mattresses, we would have to keep the bases.
Very comfortable. Weight makes putting on contour sheets difficult. Provides great support whether sleeping on side or back. Shipping was on time and the FedEx carrier even put the large b0xes in the bedroom rather than leaving at the door.
Improved quality and duration of sleep. More restful deep sleep
Bed came rolled up and compressed. We let it air out for a day before trying it out. It seemed too thin at first. We could feel the floor when kneeling on it.
Once we put it on the box spring that feeling went away.
The bed is much thinner than our old mattress but it supports us well.
We really like that it is made from natural materials and does not have a chemical smell.
I purchased a top of the line Tempurpedic about 18 months ago to replace my worn out spring mattress. I HATED IT. It sort of swallows you up, so you have to work hard to turn over (and therefore wake up more). It's also HOT. I was not getting a good night's sleep, and was at my wits end. I have always loved latex pillows, so I decided to give Astrabeds a try. I am in love! It's like sleeping on a cloud...a bouncy, supportive cloud. The only thing the old mattress did better was dampening my husband's movement. You do feel movement more with latex, but the new bed is still leaps and bounds over the Tempurpedic. And, it's made in the USA. Love, love, LOVE!
My wife and I got sick of buying a mattress every few years. We decided to take the plunge and buy an expensive, highly rated mattress. We couldn't be happier. We both have back problems and chose medium firm for our firmness level. It is perfect. No cupping and hammocking so far. I even said to my wife it feels like I am a kid again sleeping at grandmas house!
Best sleep ever. Massaging is a total bonus. Unbelievable pain relief
I travel a lot for work so when I get to be home I want to make sure I'm as comfortable as possible and this bed has nailed it so far. It's a pain to put together and you can tell where the different sides of the latex pads are, even when the bed is made. But I have been sleeping like a rock and that's what matters.
The mattress feels very comfortable and maintains its shape very well. It is a great addition to any bed. I specifically love the fact it is all natural.I ordered the mattress via phone and Customer service was very professional and helpful.Also, the mattress arrived before the expected delivery date.
We knew it was time for a new bed and after researching I knew that latex was the route I wanted to go. Astrabeds custom make your bed once you order so it took a bit for it to arrive. When it did, the FedEx driver was pretty unhappy because of how heavy it was. It took two strong men to move it and get it situated on our bed. We just used our original box springs and put a piece of plywoood to create the firm flat base the bed needs. At first... I hated it. It was too hard, I couldn't get used to it...etc. But we gave it time and now I love it. My back doesn't hurt anymore and it seems comfy to me now. I wouldn't get one for a guest bed as I think its kind of an 'acquired' type of bed that your body adjusts to. Overall, if you're thinking of getting one, I say go for it!! They do offer a return policy and want to help you get comfortable with your new bed.
I was worried that when they said "firm" that it wouldn't really be FIRM, but it is. My body is still getting used to this firmness, but it is what I wanted. It has kept its shape and works out great for doubling as a daybed/couch/bed. I use it as my main bed and my back feels great when I get up. The mattress does seem to give off a slight scent that it seems to give to the sheets on top. I am hoping that it will dissipate over time. Overall, the price point and the quality of the organic materials was in a very good spot compared to what other companies would ask you to pay, and that is what made this bed so compelling. All I can say to other shoppers out there, is to really research the firmness you want, because that will be the most important.
I was very impressed with every aspect of my purchase. the sales person was endlessly patience and truthful. I wanted an organic material with no metal springs. So dumped my Duxianna mattress and am very happy with my latex.
I heard that metal coils in the beds are a cause for health issues. I swear by god I've stopped getting headaches and migraines. It's so comfortable to boot.
Price is best i've seen and easy assembly.
After owning and IKEA mattress for ten years, I was suffering from terrible hip pain and was ready for a new mattress. My husband didn't seem to mind the hard, squeaky IKEA mattress, but I spent hours doing research for our next mattress. I had heard of memory foam, but never of latex, and was happy to read about how it doesn't retain heat as much as memory foam (I am a hot sleeper). The mattress was definitely expensive, but you can't put a price tag on a good night's sleep! I loved that I could order a firm mattress for my husband and a soft mattress for me (split king, see photo). My expectations were high on the first night, but the first night was not perfect! Luckily Justin, from Customer Service, was able to help us. He suggested a new arrangement for the three mattresses and that worked. The great thing about these mattresses is that you can rearrange the three layers to get different levels of softness/hardness. Justin was great, always answered my e-mail immediately and even phoned to ask how I was sleeping. My husband now loves his mattress and so do I. Oh, I also loved that there are no chemicals used as latex is a natural material. You can't go wrong with an Astra mattress!!
I've been using my Astrabed for over a month now. I have been very satisfied with the comfort of my bed. I usually wake up with back pain most of the time, and since I started sleeping on the Astrabed my back has felt much better and I don't wake up sore.
My mom visited so I let her use my bed and I slept in the year room. One night after she returned back to her home, she told my dad she liked my mattress more than theirs.
The very first night I slept in this bed, it was heaven! I had a memory foam bed for many years, but boy do I like this bed even better. I prefer a hard bed, and the beauty of this bed is it gives the support I need but the top layer is very soft (I got the medium-hard mattress). I also am always cold, so I appreciate how this bed holds my body heat well.
Got a CA King size mattress to replace a 10 year old innerspring one. Settled on soft, having read many reviews about latex mattresses running generally firmer than other types of mattresses. Turned out a wise decision -- does not feel too soft at all, more like what one would expect from medium.
The only word of caution is about its weight -- pretty heavy, takes at least 2 strong men to handle. Other than that the installation is pretty easy, fits perfectly in its nice fabric enclosure.
GREAT BED. GREAT QUALITY. I SPENT QUITE A BIT OF TIME RESEARCHING THE TYPE OF BED WE WANTED AND THIS FIT THE BILL. IT PERFORMS AS DESCRIBED.
I WOULD RECOMMEND BUYING A BOX SPRING SEPARATE. IT DOES NOT FIT THE MATTRESS. OBVIOUSLY THEY OUTSOURCE THE BOX SPRING.
I purchased the Medium Serenity bed in September 2014. I love it. I am mainly a side sleeper and it gives me the perfect support. It also feels great when I sleep on my back or stomach. My previous mattress, an old Sealy posturepedic, was hurting my back. I researched and found Astra beds, and am glad I did. Before I bought one, I tried out some other latex mattresses to give me a feel for them, but this one is the most comfortable by far.
I love this bed. My wife and I both sleep better since getting this bed. However, when it was delivered, the bed was delivered late because one of the boxes had exploded open (because the contents were previously vacuum sealed in a plastic bag that ripped). They had to drive a separate U-haul just to bring the box that exploded (and poorly taped back together) to my house. Astrabeds has been diligently trying to get to the bottom of this mishap. But all that said, this bed is still fantastic! I would buy another one in a heartbeat... but ask them to double bag it this time. :)
We were looking for a comfortable bed that would provide good support and also "breathe" . Both my wife and I have found that any mattress with a foam top layer is too hot to sleep comfortably. After reading all we could find we decided to try latex, and chose AstraBed. We have not been disappointed, the bed delivers on its advertised features. AstraBed have been very supportive and helpful, and you can't lose with their warranty. We particularly like the organic aspect, as we wanted to avoid anything with fire retardent chemicals added.
This bed is amazing! Was skeptical to order online after shopping several stores but I am so happy that I did. We ordered the Serenity Cal. King in medium and it accommodates my husband (side sleeper) and I (used to be a stomach sleeper-now I rest peacefully on my back!) perfectly. We look forward to many years of our amazing and natural bed!! Thanks Astrabeds!
My wife and I have bad backs. The internet research indicated this type bed may be the ticket? The other beds we have (four other beds in the house) tend to wiggle when a person rolls over. It was at the point that we would spend a considerable amount of money to get some rest. We needed a firm mattress that would:
1 Not "form fit to each person sleeping on it" but would recover to its original shape
2. Not wiggle when one person moves,
3. Support the body in any position,
4. Large enough to fit two adults and two kids to lay on it for TV movie time,
5. Allow air circulation around the bed because we have Hydronic Heating in the floor and the floor cannot be covered. Covering the floor results in no heat in the room. We live in cold wet Seattle,
6. Preferably light to move for cleaning the room and carpets,
7. Will not have aromas of gas off like other synthetic foams.
8. Have longevity and last us more than a couple of years.
9. Mattress durability when being moved.
This mattress accomplishes some of the goals
The mattress is actually 4 pieces. It consists of a cover holder that retains the various foam layers, a large foam layer (about 8 inches thick), and two smaller foams (about 2 inch thick each). Each of the two smaller foams has different durometer ratings (hardness ratings). We first tried only the large foam only. It was too hard. We then tried the middle foam (firm on top of the hard and the softest on top of the firm). This was much too soft. We then tried the 2 inch hard foam on top of the 2 inch soft foam. This was still too soft. We then tried only the 8 inch foam and the hard 2 inch foam and eliminated the soft 2 inch foam. This is where we are today. Each trial period lasted about 2 to 3 weeks (except the single 8 inch) layer. We only slept on this for about 5 days because the other two layers had not arrived. (The bed came in two different packages delivered at two different times).
We have been sleeping on the various renditions (stacks) of the mattress foam for almost 3 months.
We both still have back pain.
As for our list:
1. Not "form fit to each person sleeping on it" but would recover to its original shape – So far the mattress seems to have a good hysteresis (the ability for the material to return to its original shape) We tried some artificial foam mattress before the Astra and although the artificial foam recovered, it took a long time to recover and it would also tend to pocket too much when rolling over leaving lumps. The Astra foam does not seem to pocket and it returns almost immediately to its original shape.
2. Not wiggle when one person moves. While we understand that a lot of the movement of a bed is due to its frame, we know from experience that in other beds, just the makeup of the bed with springs etc , motion on the bed will pull other parts of the structure and result in motion, or what I will call wiggling when two people are in a bed and one moves. I in fact can actually feel a regular bed move from my heart beat. The Astra does not have this motion.
3. Support the body in any position. The Astra Bed seems to accomplish this. Due to my bad back, I move a considerable amount during the night. I will move from my back to either side numerous times. With each roll my body will have different curves on the mattress. It does not seem to matter what position I end up in, the mattress still recovers nicely without pockets.
4. Large enough to fit two adults and two kids to lay on it for TV movie time – We purchased the standard King Size bed. Our other bed was a California King. The standard Astra King mattress is shorter and wider than a California King. We are using the California King bottom springs mounted on top of 2 x6 boards which brings the height of the bed off of the floor. We separated the California King bottom springs about 4 inches beneath a plywood top. We placed the Astra bed on top of the plywood with a space at the head of the bed where we have place additional foam to make up the difference. The result is a California Bed length with the width of a Standard King. Plenty of room for kids next to us or at the foot of the bed to watch movies.
5. Allow air circulation around the bed because we have Hydronic Heating in the floor and the floor cannot be covered. Covering the floor results in no heat in the room. We live in cold wet Seattle – The above description (4) allows for air circulation beneath the bed and warm air to escape into the room.
6. Preferably light to move for cleaning the room and carpets- This is not a light bed, nor portable. The Astra Foam is very difficult to handle due to its flexibility. It has no handles. Its like moving a 250 lb piece of jello. The foam itself is also delicate. It will tear easily if not careful. Don't jump on it! Movie night should not include a trampoline on mom and dad's bed. It would be a good idea to have a frame made that could sandwich the mattress together and allow it to be moved as a unit then when being used as a bed, the top support of the sandwich could be removed to allow use of the Mattress. Maybe a honeycomb type of frame?
7. Will not have aromas of gas off like other synthetic foams – There was only a small aroma after opening the plastic bag that held the foam. I am very susceptible to vapors and aromas. I tried the artificial foam and it was not acceptable. The Astra foam did not have the chemical smell.
8. Have longevity and last us more than a couple of years – this has yet to be determined however the "guarantee is that if there is a problem, Astra will replace it.
9. Mattress durability when being moved – This was covered in item "6" above.
This is not an inexpensive bed. I anticipate notifying Astra of the soft 2 inch thick foam that is not being used anymore and asking to return it for reimbursement since we will not be using it.
The outer cover holding the Latex foam is difficult to move and should have additional edge support with handles allowing the re-positioning of the mattress on top of whatever frame it sits on. I think the zippers around the outside and the cover material itself will eventually tear. It should be made of a sturdier material because the Latex itself is so flexible.
My wife loves the fact that when I get up at night, she does not feel any motion. This allows her to continue her rest.
Overall, we will be keeping the bed. I will probably come up with a different type of bed frame to accommodate a higher bed and solid supports. I looked at the frames available from Astra and opted to not purchase due to the apparent lack of leg support (not enough gussets to eliminate bed motion).
We went out on a limb buying the Astra bed because we couldn't try it first, but it is great!
My wife and I retired in 2014 and decided to add some comfort to our sleep by purchasing a new mattress. Our old mattress was over 25+ years old and had a number of pressure points hurting the backs. I reviewed various mattresses on-line with pros and cons regarding their composition and concluded the latex layered memory foam one was the best for us. I was skeptical in purchasing the Serenity on-line since I never laid on this type of mattress before. After sleeping on this mattress for five weeks, I am happy with my purchase with its comfort (backs feel better refreshed upon awakening) and how the foam quickly responds back upon turning from different positions. The only problem that I experienced was a slight delivery problem which the company quickly and graciously corrected.
Enjoying my Serenity bed so far. I got the medium density variant. I find it much more comfortable to sleep on my side than an innerspring mattress. I don't have any problem shifting position as I sleep on my side, back and stomach during the course of a night.
Downsides are that the mattress is very heavy and unwieldy. Difficult to move without someone to help.
It also has some moderate heat retention. This is both a benefit and a negative in my opinion. I am going to try it for a while with a simple cotton mattress pad/protector. If heat retention becomes a bigger deal, I may try adding a gel mattress topper.
