Who Do We Think Matches With Latex for Less?
- Combination Sleepers – The materials used in this bed should feel springy and responsive, allowing for decent pushback and quick reformation when moving around. This should help make repositioning a breeze.
- People Seeking Versatility – This double-sided product allows shoppers to choose between Medium and Firm comfort levels to best suit their individual needs. Two different heights are also available ensuring the mattress best fits the intended space. This should be ideal for couples or people with multiple sleep preferences.
- Shoppers on a Budget – Latex is super popular but it can be expensive. Those looking for more affordable options may have found their match here.
Possible Latex for Less Complaints:
- It can’t support heavier weights. – The company recommends that sleepers over 250 pounds pair their bed with a mattress topper for added support that should prevent them from bottoming out through the comfort layers.
Construction: What’s Inside Latex for Less?
The certified organic cotton cover should feel plush and soft to the touch. A half-inch layer of wool sits just below the cover on either side to promote temperature regulation.
Shoppers may choose between 9 and 7-inch thickness options. Here we are discussing the 9-inch.
- The first layer includes 2 inches of Medium Talalay Latex. When using this layer on top you should feel some give and enhanced pressure relief.
- The second layer consists of 6 inches of Firm Dunlop Latex. This layer can be used as a support core for the entire bed or can be flipped and used as the top layer for firmer support that gently contours to the body.
First Impression: How Does It Feel?
This item is a latex mattress that ships compressed in a box. The bed can be paired with an adjustable base, foundation, box spring, or slatted base with the slats no more than 3 inches apart to prevent sagging between the slats. A proprietary foundation and adjustable base are available for purchase through the company’s website.
After you unbox your new mattress, you’ll need to decide which side to sleep on since this is a dual-firmness, flippable design. We rank the Medium option at a 4.5 on our Firmness scale, with the Firm side coming in at an 8.
Sleepers should enjoy a gentle cradle as they sink lightly into the Medium side. There should be more of a floating on top feel on the Firm side as the firmer layers prevent much sinkage. The wool layer and perforated latex should also help regulate temperature and enhance airflow.
The comfort layers should feel springy and should provide an enhanced bounce. This should allow for easy repositioning and should reduce any feelings of being “stuck” in the gentle cradle of the bed.
Firmness Scale: 4.5/10 (Soft), 8/10 (Firm)
Pressure relief is a bed’s ability to evenly distribute body weight to relieve excess pressure under heavier areas. This is important for all sleepers, but especially for those who sleep on their sides since the shoulders and hips can experience excessive strain.
Latex is a type of natural foam that is well-suited for relieving pressure. Talalay is a softer latex that offers a deeper cradle and contouring relief, which is why it is on the softer side. Dunlop latex is denser and offers a more gentle cradle.
Support is what keeps sleepers from sinking all the way through the bed’s materials and ending up with a misaligned spine. Latex has the unique ability to offer both pressure relief and support. This material is also known for being responsive and bouncy to help with repositioning in the night.
Multiple Firmness Options
The mattress can be flipped to enjoy either Medium or Firm comfort levels.
This flippable design allows shoppers to customize the feel in the comfort of their homes. With a simple flip of the bed, sleepers can enjoy a completely different level of firmness without having to buy a whole new option.
Multiple Height Options
Shoppers may choose between 7 or 9-inch heights.
This mattress ships directly to your door rolled and compressed in a box.
Great Motion Isolation
Shoppers should notice above average motion control as compared to most beds of this material due to the energy dampening nature of the wool layer. Couples and co-sleepers or people who share their bed with pets should find this enhanced motion control aids their ability to sleep through the night with minimal disruptions.
Latex is known to have a good amount of buoyancy that can aid sleepers in repositioning or getting into and out of bed. 0

This mattress is versatile and customizable to bring you a more affordable latex sleep experience that suits your exact needs. The company’s emphasis on organic, natural, and chemical-free products makes this a great choice for the environmentally-minded shopper.
Side sleepers will likely prefer the light sinkage of the Medium option. They should experience comforting pressure relief in the hips and shoulders due to the gentle cradle and softcover.
Back sleepers can choose between Medium and Firm comfort levels to best suit their preferences. Either option should provide neutral spine alignment and lumbar support through a gentle contouring effect.
Stomach sleepers often prefer a Firmer comfort level to prevent the hips from sinking and causing the spine to misalign. The Firm side should serve this sleep type well.
Thanks to the bounce and multiple firmness options, combination sleepers should find this mattress comfortable and supportive in a variety of positions.
This bed should sleep cool for couples and do a good job at isolating motion. While edge support isn’t exceptional, it is on par with other all-foam constructions. The company also offers the ability to get the Queen, King, or Cali King sizes as split options so couples can each choose their own preferred level of firmness.
Latex is a more durable material than other foams, although it still lacks the support that heavier folks need. The firm side may be suitable for heavy sleepers who prefer their sides, but those who sleep on their stomach or back are likely to find this mattress lacking adequate support. The company recommends adding a mattress topper for people over 250 pounds as this should add extra support and help prevent them from sinking too deeply into the bed.
Most lighter individuals should be pleased with the ability to choose their level of firmness. The softer, Medium side is likely to be a better fit for these folks who often experience most beds as too firm. Keep in mind that latex offers a more gentle cradle that some lighter side sleepers may still find too firm.
Multiple certifications, a dedication to consistency through single-origin latex sourcing, and polite and responsive customer service are proof the consumer is the company’s top priority.
The company strives to provide a comfortable, customizable sleep experience that works for everyone. This mattress should do just that thanks to multiple firmness levels and two different height options.
The versatility and personalization of this mattress add a lot of value to this affordable bed.
