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.
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.
