Avocado Mattress: Feel Better Sleeping On A Green Bed
The Green Mattress is a medium firmness that is still soft enough for side sleepers.
We gave the Green Mattress a 6 out of 10 firmness rating (10 being the firmest). The top of the Green Mattress is a European-style pillow top that provides a soft, pillowy feel. Blend that with the 3 inches of natural latex below, and sleepers find a comfort level that is soft but with a bounce. The Green Bed is ideal for side and back sleepers.
Even with this level of comfort, the Avocado Green Mattress provides phenomenal support. They use an 8″ coil support system to provide a supportive sleep. We find that pocket coils tended to add a significant amount of responsiveness that foam just can’t match.
Just the right amount of sink.
Our research found that the Avocado Green had a sinkage of 2″-3″ when laying in the middle. The pillow top and latex beneath conform to the sleeper’s body. The coils underneath reduce any sag, and sleepers end up with a comfortable depth that doesn’t feel like quicksand.
A mattress with a latex top and coils is going to be more responsive than memory foam. Our research didn’t find too much horizontal motion transfer. The Avocado will have more movement than a mattress topped with memory foam. We prefer responsive mattresses as they provide a more energetic sleep.
A Healthy and Cool Sleep
We found no issues with the temperature of the Green Bed. Latex and springs are much cooler than memory foam. The bed also uses a Pure New Zealand Wool lining that pulls heat and moisture away from the sleeper. Top that off with an organic cotton mattress cover that allows for easy airflow. This Avocado mattress should be suitable for all temperatures, hot and cold alike.
We found no issues with Off-Gassing (the odor let off by the mattress) and we never expected to. It was essential for Avocado to create an entirely organic mattress. Customers are sleeping on 100% natural latex foam sustainably harvested from rubber trees. The fabric is Joma New Zealand Wool and certified organic cotton. Customers have nothing to fear when it comes to chemicals or other synthetic products.
