Sleep On Latex is an all-natural and eco-conscious choice if you want all of the benefits of memory foam, but don't want synthetic foams in your house. Latex is harvested from the rubber tree vs other foams that are made with petrolium or harsh chemicals. But how does it feel?
Sleep on Latex only makes latex foam mattresses. These are made from natural latex from Sri Lanka, which is quality controlled through Eco-Institut and Oeko-Tex certifications. They also offer two thickness levels - a lower profile 7'' and a 9'' variety. Here is what's inside their 9'':
Layer 1: The cover is quilted and made of New Zealand wool -- it has a 1'' profile. It is the natural fire barrier and is combined with cotton to keep you cooler than just wool alone.
Layer 2: 2'' of soft latex relieves pressure points and provides response.
Layer 3: 6'' of latex base foam makes up the bottom and provides a solid support.
Most like the feel of the Sleep on Latex, though some experience regrets around firmness. The beds are very heavy and even the 7'' is very difficult to move for two adults.
The Sleep on Latex provides three different firmness options. Some report that the medium is closer to a medium firm and the soft is softer than expected.
Based on the firmness profile, the medium versions should alleviate back pain. Most experience a comfortable sleep, though there are a few reports of increased back pain.
Based on the reports and the materials, this bed should not sleep warm for most. Some very warm sleepers may still experience heat retention.
Sleep on Latex is a good option for those that already know they love the feel of latex foam, are not very warm sleepers, and desire an all-natural mattress.
We had a very firm serta icomfort that hurt my hips. I'm a side sleeper. Last year we added one of the latex toppers. That helped, but not enough. We recently got a medium mattress and are using it with the topper. It has been great!
The firm is fit for us. I am pregnant, this one helps a lot
It’s a great mattress though mine only is about 8” since the wool and cotton has not yet full expanded. I have great sleep at night, no aches or pains.
We have ordered 3 queen size beds for our new home. Not only do we love the mattresses or guests do too! We also ordered 4 deluxe pillows, which we are not as happy with. They are too thick which make them uncomfortable.
We purchased the firm latex mattress. It is very firm, but we are comfortable on it. As has been mentioned in other reviews, there is a smell to the mattress. It is going away over time, but some people might find it objectionable. It is also a heavy mattress. We purchased it for our boat and there are storage lockers in the platform on which the ...Read Moremattress lays.

Stands up to all the claims made by it's inventor ! Better more relaxing sleep than on any other mattress, hands down. Also, the price is reasonable and the Customer Service is fantastic. !!
In an attempt to remedy chronic back discomfort & having more preference towards firmer sleeping surfaces... I initially purchased a medium 3" topper to firm up a pillow top mattress. When I received it, found that I would've preferred the firm topper as the medium didnt do much. With plans of returning the topper, I decided to go ahead and pu...Read Morerchase a latex mattress, choosing the 7" firm. Interium I slept on the topper placed on a carpeted floor. Those few nights were THE BEST sleeps I had in a long while. Firm enough for me to feel the support of the floor, yet cradled enough by the topper that it wasnt too hard. Also noticed that I didnt wake up with my normal morning stiffness from the pillow top mattress. Shipping for mattress was just as quick as the topper. Upon opening there was a farm animal smell mixed with latex, which was strong enough to be off putting to me. I also noticed sagging in the middle of the mattress once it was laid onto my platform bed. I phoned the company & the customer rep assured me that it would take a few days to a week for the mattress to full expand to its capacity; and if it didn't, they would ship a new mattress. I found the firm to be TOO firm(I'm a side sleeper) & bouncy, so I put medium topper over it. I felt like Goldilocks, it was just right!! Even masking the zoo smell from the mattress. Now having slept on the mattress & topper for nearly 2 weeks, I have to say that I am getting some of the best nights sleeps ever!! Even my housemate commented how comfortable it is to lay on. So I wont be returning the topper, happy to know that if I go thru a phase of needing more firmness, I can always remove it. Oh, I also noticed that the animal smell as calmed down a lot, needing to place my nose close to mattress to detect. I do wish the mattress had handles. I am very happy with my investment, 3 stars for now, will return after 6 months with an update; as only time will tell how well they both hold up from use. Read Less
Solid, way to firm. Will probably return.
Best mattress my wife and I slept on in years. Everyone needs one!
I recently bought a 9 inch Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress and am very happy with it. I wanted to avoid the off-gassing of memory foam so I was specifically looking for a latex mattress.

Read a lot of reviews and did a lot of Reddit’ing and couldn’t be happier
This is the best mattress i have ever owned. Its supports my body well and is comfortable too! It is very heavy to move tho.
I got the firm version of this mattress, and it’s great for back sleepers (maybe a little too firm for side sleepers). I’m not giving it five stars because I don’t recall being warned anywhere that the queen size mattress weighs 150 lbs. I’ve since learned that latex is heavy, and I think it’s great for some people. If you’re not on the first floo...Read Morer, you may want to request “white glove” service. Even in the box it took two strong men and me to get it upstairs. I decided to return it, and I’d get the regular instead of the firm if I did it again. I’m opting for a lighter mattress. They offered to let me donate it, but since it’s so heavy I asked that they pick it up. They’re sending people who will carry it back downstairs for me, and they were extremely pleasant and understanding about the return. They’re definitely a quality operation, and I’m sorry it didn’t work out for me. Read Less
The Pure Green is really well constructed from materials that feel durable, especially the primary material, which is a huge slab of latex. I much prefer the feeling of the latex mattress to memory foam, and I like that it's cooler than foam mattresses. Highly recommended.
I bought the medium firmness king size mattress and it is the perfect firmness for me. I have been extremely pleased with my purchase.

I really, really loved this mattress for the first few weeks...it felt amazing compared to my old bed. Now that I've had it for about 8 months, I'm less sure. I bought the medium firm mattress, 9 inches thick. I waffled between firm and medium, and ultimately chose medium after talking to an employee, because I often sleep on my side and some...Read Moretimes sleep on my back and that was the recommendation. It seems like it has already lost a little bit of it's firmness, which I thought was not supposed to happen. After about 3-4 months I started really wishing I had chosen firm. Hopefully it doesn't soften further. Some Pros: The price! I could not have afforded most of the other brands of natural latex mattresses out there. Also, more comfortable than many other conventional matresses. Another issue is the mattress itself is a little (1-4 inches) narrower and shorter than advertised, than a typical full size bed. Maybe factor the thick wool cover into the advertised mattress dimensions, which seems misleading. I know it's just a few inches but it felt noticably narrower to me than my conventional full mattress. Overall, I'm still undecided. I'm happy to have been able to afford a more eco-friendly and healthy mattress. I wonder if I expected too much, comfort-wise. Since I did love it at first, I would kind of like to try the firmer mattress instead...but am worried I'll just be disappointed again. Read Less
Love the mattress, comfortable, safe, clean!
I bought another mattress identical to one I purchased just over a year ago with SOL, this time for my guest room.

It is nice to read reviews that actually are true. My experience has been great with this company and it's customer service. They helped me choose the correct Bed , topper and pillow. I couldn't be more pleased with the Sales Team and the product. Which by the way, is like sleeping on a cloud. The most comfortable bed I have ever had. Thank you
My wife and I loved our old tempurpedic, but started looking around when upgrading to a king size. We were initially attracted by the organic, natural nature of the mattress.

We bought a 9 in medium density mattress, and added the 3in soft topper. This was not comfy enough for my husband's aches and pains, so we are going to add a 3 in down topper in search of a cloud nine rest for him.

This mattress is great, we got a medium firmness because so many people said the medium was really firm. I disagree, I think the medium is appropriately categorized and thus we are returning for a firm. It’s super comfy but we have an infant and need a firmer sleep surface. Company is quick to respond and great to work with!
Fantastic mattress! I was very apprehensive about purchasing a mattress online but so happy now that I went with SleepOnLatex. Delivery was straight forward, the unwrapping and installation process was uneventful. The even and comfortable support from the mattress was superb. I told my wife that I felt like I was floating!
Slept on a futon for 2 decades until I got my new latex mattress. Best decision I ever made.
I love my latex bed. I purchased the 9 inch firmer and 3 inch soft topper. Everything is high quality. I mage a V birth bed in our sailboat a decade ago from a king size 6 inch mattress.

We bought twin mattresses for our girls. They are super comfy and our daughters have gotten great sleep since they started using them.
We bought the 9” medium mattress with a soft 3” topper. It’s just dreamy! What was great was that the mattress was ready to sleep on soon after unpacking with no off gassing.
I have wanted a natural latex mattress for a few years now. I love the say I feel so refreshed after sleeping on this mattress. The firm mattress is Sooooo comfortable for my wife and I. I will buy another one in the future and will recommend them to my friends.
I am enjoying the new 9” king soft-firmness mattress. However, if you enjoy memory foam, this may not be for you. In fairness to Sleep On Latex, they made that point clear to me when considering my purchase. Latex pushes back more that memory foam, but you won’t sink, either.

We were happy with the firm mattress, and I'm even happier with the addition of the 2" soft latex topper, which feels like the ideal combination of support and softness. Great products, excellent customer service; highly recommended!
I've only ever slept on one mattress my whole life, so I dont have much mattress wisdom to offer. The mattress was a little firmer than I thought, but I sleep like a baby on it.
The most important aspect of the bed--probably any bed--is comfort. This mattress is firm and supportive without being a rock. It's exactly what I wanted. Other pros: it did not stink of chemicals when it arrived and was pretty easy to unwrap. Minor con: it's a beast to move by oneself. Get a friend or a gym membership. Overall, I am very happy.

I made my purchase by phone as I had some questions and they were very professional and knowledgeable about their products. I would recommend to anyone who wants a good latex mattress at a budget price.
Just got this mattress. I was so nervous about buying this without testing it out but thought the price was really good for a natural mattress without synthetic foams and flame retardants. It has some give on the surface but overall very firm, which is perfect. Also, the only smell when you open it is wool, a little bit like a barn, but soooo much better than a toxic chemical smell.
It has only been a week or so but the jury is still out. The mattress still seems to curl up slightly at the ends and is not really cosmetically appealing when the bed is made. Functionally, it seems pretty good, but will require I replace some level of box spring 4-5'' to bring to a realistic height. This is not my first latex and/or foam mattress so it really is a different animal. I will continue the trial and see. I trust consumer reports, and they rated it very high! Love the 100 day trial!
The helpful customer service team recommended the 9'' medium queen, and we've been very happy with it since it arrived two weeks ago. Easy to unpack (though it was challenging to wrestle the 120-pound box up two flights of stairs). No weird off-gassing smell. Has helped me sleep better. I wish I had bought this years earlier.
I have been looking around at mattress options for about three years, and finally the time was right to buy one. I choose Sleep on Latex because it seemed like the best combination of a good quality mattress for a reasonable price. It is comfortable and just what I was hoping for!
I like that this mattress sleeps way cooler than my previous memory foam mattress from the 'member only big box store'. It is also more comfortable and doesn’t have the chemical smell of memory foam. It did have a slight earthy smell but only for a couple days. I didn’t mind the earthy smell, it was very slight and reminded me that this is made from natural materials. I’ve been on the mattress a few weeks now and I’m very happy with the purchase. I have the soft mattress and my wife and I are both happy with the firmness level. I always felt that my previous memory foam was too hard, this is way better.
Very satisfied with the medium mattress. I also got a soft mattress topper and I'm happy with the combination. I also sleep so much better knowing there are no chemical flame retardants and other harmful VOCs in this mattress.
We love this mattress.. Great product, company and people. They truly stand by their product. Thank you!
Our order was filled and sent earlier than anticipated. Because of prior experience with a firmer latex mattress, we purchased a soft mattress. For us, this is extremely comfortable, and includes the underlying firm latex that gives good underlying support. We are very satisfied with our purchase.
I have slept on my queen mattress for about a week now. It is a soft (I’m a side sleeper). The top is soft, but the deeper support is reassuringly firm. A nice combination! Too early to give it 5 stars, but so far, so good.
good customer service, items arrived promptly
This mattress is a definite deviation from the norm so the first week was an adjustment getting used to the 'firmness' of the firm option but now I find I am not waking to joint pain in the hip or knees (from the side sleeping position.) I chose the 7'' firm mattress but in the near future I will add the 3'' topper of medium firmness.
