Nolah Natural Latex Mattress Review Breakdown

If you're searching for a new bed that's non-toxic, made of organic and natural materials, with green certifications, the Nolah Natural 11" mattress is a great option. Expertly crafted, this latex bed is an 11" deep mattress that boasts a combination of proprietary spring coils and soft layers to give you the healthiest sleep ever.

Construction

Nolah Latex Mattress Construction

The Nolah Natural Latex has a cover made from GOTS-certified (Global Organic Textile Standard) cotton, thus giving the outside of your bed a luxurious feel. The absence of toxic chemicals on the cover and the inclusion of organic and natural materials means that you won't experience allergic reactions when sleeping on it.

Plus, organic cotton is super breathable. It absorbs and wicks body heat to the surrounding air, keeping your body cool and dry throughout the night. However, you can't remove the cover, so it's wise to have a mattress protector to prevent stains and dust from ruining your mattress.

Next, you'll find an added moisture-wicking, naturally breathable, anti-bacterial soft layer of premium GOTS certified organic wool fibers, which acts as a natural fire barrier. The wool is also temperature regulating, meaning it can help warm you up during cold nights and cool you down when you're feeling hot. And, it repels dust-mites and defends your mattress against fungal spores.

Underneath the wool layer is a 2" comfort layer of Talalay latex foam that gently cradles your body. This high-quality material offers more pressure relief than Dunlop latex, but is less conforming than traditional memory beds. It also protects you from the coils beneath and ensures total comfort for joints and pain points, while providing a degree of bounce to aid with mobility.
Following the transitional layer is Nolah's patented HDMax TriZone support layer that gives your mattress structure and strength. Made from recycled steel, this 8" base layer is constructed to help you maintain proper alignment throughout the night by isolating movement and providing adaptive support.

Instead of the regular high-density foam we often find in Nolah mattresses, Nolah added one more foundation layer made of organic cotton and natural wool. This layer provides extra durability and stability to your bed, using more natural and organic materials than most mattresses do.

Finally, the bottom cover is designed with organic cotton, delivering softness and luxury below and around your mattress. The Nolah Natural Latex Mattress also has handles on the side, making it easy to carry your bed and move it around when you're trying to clean.

Nolah calls their Natural 11" a luxury-firm bed, which is generally considered a medium-firm mattress. This makes it an ideal choice for stomach, side, back, and combination sleepers. On the firmness scale, the Nolah Latex Mattress is approximately 6-6.5.

With a cloud-like feel and Talalay latex foam, this comfortable mattress has a unique buoyant feel that relaxes muscles, helps relieve tension, and lifts away body pressure while you sleep. You get perfect spinal alignment, maximum back support, and superior pressure point relief.

Mattress Performance

How does the Nolah Natural Latex mattress' world-class construction affect its performance? This in-depth Nolah mattress review has got all the answers you seek. Read on to learn about its motion isolation, edge support, cooling features, and more. 

Motion Isolation

Couples always worry about their bed's motion transfer. If you sleep with your partner or pet and your mattress doesn't isolate motion well, you might wake up when they move around and shift sleeping positions during the night.

Although the Nolah Natural features a pocketed coil core and a Talalay latex system, it doesn't lessen shock waves going through your mattress particularly well. Yes, the latex and the coil work together to absorb surface-level vibrations and prevent the spread of motion across the core. But latex's natural bounce and responsiveness contribute to mild motion transfer.

While this shouldn't be an issue for most couples, if you're a light or sensitive sleeper, you'll be better off with an all-foam mattress, such as the Nolah Signature 12, for better motion isolation.

Pressure Relief

Pressure relief refers to how effective your mattress is at reducing friction points on your body. How well your bed is able to relieve pressure points depends on your sleeping style. 

We tested this bed's pressure relief by sleeping on it in the back, front, and side sleep positions at different angles, and we can firmly say that it did an excellent task at minimizing the pressure points, especially on the more angular regions of our bodies.

The Talalay latex foam will cradle your curves and provide spinal support. And although it's not as conforming as high-density memory foam mattress, it still delivers an astonishing amount of pressure relief.

Temperature Control

If you're a hot sleeper who's highly sensitive to beds that retain heat, the Nolah Natural Latex Mattress is your holy grail. Generally, latex hybrid mattresses sleep cool, and Nolah's latex mattress is no exception. It's one of the most cooling mattresses we've tested so far, performing even better than the best beds for hot sleepers, such as the DreamCloud mattresses.

Its wool layer wicks away body heat and moisture, while its cotton cover at the top allows air to circulate into your mattress. What's more, the responsive Talalay latex comfort system is naturally breathable, and the coil system leaves plenty of room for airflow, so you shouldn't worry about overheating while sleeping on this bed.

Edge Support

Just like motion isolation, edge support comes up quite a lot when couples go hunting for a new mattress. So, what does this exactly mean? Well, if you're sleeping near the side of your mattress, you'll want to feel safe and stable. Otherwise, you and your partner won't be able to utilize the surface area of your bed fully.

The Nolah Natural Latex Mattress features very supportive edges than most of its competitors. When we sat near the mattress sides, we felt the top layers collapsing a bit. However, we felt pretty secure when we slept at the edges.

Nolah Natural's Talalay latex foam minimizes sinkage by spreading the pressure over a wider area, while the pocketed coils maintain the structure of your mattress along its perimeters. Thanks to its decent edge support, most sleepers can comfortably use the bed's entire surface

without fearing that they might fall off. However, if you weigh more than 230 pounds, you may need a bed with reinforced edges, such as the Nolah Evolution 15.

Ease of Movement

The Nolah Natural Latex Mattress is pretty easy to move around in. This is due to the responsiveness of its latex foam that combines with the bounce of its springs to suit restless and combination sleepers alike. Plus, thanks to the mattress' medium-firm feel, most sleepers have an easy time moving as this firmness level prevents the restrictive hugging sensation.

Sex

Couples shopping for the best bed for sex usually want a mattress that feels bouncy and responsive. If this is among your priorities, you'll be glad to know that Nolah's latex mattress fits the bill. This mattress makes it extremely easy to move around and shift positions during sex.

Its Talalay latex foam regains its shape fast enough when you change positions, thus limiting the impression that could impede movement. What's more, latex's breathability helps to disperse body heat. And, the coils add the much-needed bounce while their pocketing limits creaking sounds.

Off-Gassing

When you first open bed-in-a-box mattresses, it's common for them to off-gas. This is simply a fancy way of referring to the process of chemical emission when you unbox your mattress.

Since the Nolah Natural Latex Mattress features eco-friendly materials, it won't emit a strong synthetic odor. However, you might notice a faint earthy smell, which is entirely normal, but should fade within 48 hours. Nolah's eco-INSTITUT certification also proves that your mattress comes with low volatile organic compound emissions.

Durability

The highly durable nature of your bed's Talalay latex foam, organic cotton, high-quality wool, and the pocket coils makes it durable. Overall, you should expect your mattress to last at least 8-10 years.

Noise

When we tested the Nolah Natural Latex Mattress, we didn't notice any loud, irritating noise. The coils might begin to squeak as you continue using your bed, but we don't anticipate this turning into much of a problem. Because Nolah Natural mattresses feature individually-encased, they won't make the kind of noise that you usually hear when you sleep on spring mattresses.

Ideal for Sensitive Sleepers with Allergies

If you have hay fever and other conditions like a dust mite allergy, you can have peace of mind knowing that Nolah's latex mattress has got your back. You won't encounter any form of a flare-up when resting on it. Its natural materials make it a perfect alternative for sensitive sleepers with medical conditions, such as eczema, asthma, and other conditions that can be triggered with chemicals found in beds with lots of synthetic components.

Ideal for Pain Relief

Those who suffer from chronic back pain and arthritis often have a terrible experience when sleeping either on a mattress that's too firm or doesn't provide enough pressure relief or support. Fortunately, you can rest assured of sleeping relatively pain-free on the Nolah Natural Latex Mattress because its zoned support and latex foam are efficient at removing the surface pressure points on sleepers' bodies while supporting them optimally in all sleeping positions. 
These features can also benefit sleepers with conditions like sciatica and those suffering from disc problems in the lower or upper back. Of course, it's always advisable to talk to your physician first before purchasing a mattress to help with your condition.

Low Risk of Sagging or Indenting

Unlike other similar models, the Nolah Natural Latex Mattress has a minimum chance of displaying indents or sagging prematurely. This is because it features resilient foam, a hybrid design, and quality materials, making it resistant to wear and tear.

Very Good Overall Support

We tested the support of Nolah's latex mattress by sleeping on it in the back, and side and we can confidently say that it has good overall support. Because of its zoned support system, this mattress is comfortable for various sleeping postures, especially for sleepers weighing 230 pounds or less.

Good Value for Money

The Nolah Natural Latex Mattress is reasonably priced, especially if you consider that it contains top-quality materials, such as the natural Talalay latex foam, which pushes the prices of these types of beds considerably.

Plus, given the long-lasting nature of its materials, you can expect to save more money, especially if you consider the extra years' of use that Nolah's latex mattress boasts when compared to cheaper mattresses that rarely last as long.

Sleeping Style and Body Weight

Nolah Latex Mattress Firmness Level

Generally, the Nolah Natural Latex Mattress varies in the feel and comfort it provides depending on your primary sleeping position and how much you weigh.

Side Sleepers

If you're a side sleeper, you'll be pleased to know that Nolah's adaptive zoned support and latex foam provides excellent pressure relief around your shoulders to prevent pressure buildup in your joints. Its Talalay latex system conforms to your hips and shoulders, thus redistributing your weight and reducing hip and shoulder discomfort.

Since the comfort system also limits sinkage, you shouldn't have to worry about your hips sinking deep into your mattress and straining your lower back. Although Nolah Natural's medium-firm feel makes it perform well for most side sleepers, you should consider going for a softer mattress if you weigh less than 130 pounds.

Back Sleepers

The Nolah Natural's supportive design does an excellent job of cradling your body and maintaining good posture. This gives you an easy time keeping your spine aligned when sleeping on your back.

Also, its coils ensure that you rest on an even sleep surface, protecting you from sinking in excessively and straining your lumbar area. Meanwhile, zoning enhances support around the midsection of your body,

Compared to gel memory foam, Nolah Natural Latex Mattress has less of a conforming and smothering feel, but offers more of a cradling and bouncy sensation.

Stomach Sleepers

The Nolah Natural offers a perfect blend of support and pressure relief for stomach sleepers. If you prefer sleeping on your front and weigh less than 230 pounds, you'll find Nolah's latex mattress to be surprisingly comfortable. It will keep you in good posture, while also relieving pressure on your knees, hips, and ribs, thanks to its zoned support and limited sinkage.

Its Talalay latex comfort system helps spread compression across your bed's surface, meaning you won't sink in excessively as you sleep on it. And thanks to its coil core, which is sturdier near the center, your midsection won't pull your spine out of alignment. However, the extra weight in stomach sleepers over 230 pounds makes them prone to lower back pain when sleeping in this position.

Combination Sleepers

If you switch positions frequently during the night, you should consider checking out the Nolah Natural Latex Mattress. It features latex foam and springs, which deliver a high degree of bounce, thus making it easy for combination sleepers to turn over and move around.

Lightweight Sleepers - Under 130 pounds

Lightweight sleepers should have a restful sleep in the Nolah Natural mattress, irrespective of the sleeping position. People who weigh 130 pounds or less should feel plenty of support and comfort while side and back sleeping. And since lightweight sleepers don't compress the latex comfort layers too much, they'll also get the necessary spine alignment and pressure relief while stomach sleeping.

Average Weight Sleepers - 130 pounds - 230 pounds

If you fall in this category and prefer sleeping on your back, you should feel comfortable and well supported on Nolah's latex mattress. The coils perfectly conform to your body shape; thus, they'll help you maintain proper spine alignment. Not to mention, the thick latex comfort layers create the much-needed press relief for your hips and shoulders.

Average-weight stomach sleepers, on the other hand, will most likely find this bed too soft. So, if you're a stomach sleeper who weighs between 130 pounds and 230 pounds, we encourage you to check out firm mattresses that can ideally relieve pressure on your hips, knees, and ribs.

Heavyweight Sleepers - Over 230 pounds

Heavyweight sleepers should also feel supported and comfy while side and back sleeping. The plush comfort layers should cushion your body from any pain along pressure points, while the proprietary spring coils should prevent heavier people from "bottoming out". However, larger folks who weigh more than 300 pounds might need a bed that's a bit more firm, comfy and supportive.

Again, heavier stomach sleepers won't get enough support on Nolah's latex mattress. It feels too soft for front sleeping and you might end up developing lower back pain.
