Please note: At this time, the Eden Mattress is out of stock in all sizes.

EdenSleep’s flagship mattress is the Eden Mattress, a latex hybrid made with all-natural materials and offered at a very competitive price-point. The mattress is 14 inches tall and ranks a 5, or medium, on the 10-point firmness scale.

The Eden Mattress is constructed with layers of wool and latex over a pocketed coil core, which is reinforced around the perimeter for stronger edge support. The mattress sits atop a wool and latex base and has a breathable organic cotton cover.

EdenSleep also offers an optional pillow-top for the mattress. Made with 2 inches of natural latex, this pillow-top is ideal for those who like extra cushioning.

The Eden Mattress may be an enticing option for shoppers who value sustainability, but who also want good value for their money. To help you determine whether the Eden Mattress is right for you, we’ll examine how it rates in construction, performance, and value.

Eden Mattress Review Breakdown

The Eden Mattress is a thoughtfully constructed mattress that combines organic cotton, wool, latex, and pocketed coils.

Topping the mattress is a layer of natural New Zealand wool batting that’s designed to wick away moisture and provide initial plushness.

The principal comfort layer is a 5-inch tier of natural Dunlop latex, which is known for its durability. Latex is typically bouncier and less close-conforming than foam, and this layer prevents sleepers from sinking too deeply into the mattress. For those who prefer extra cushioning, EdenSleep sells a 2-inch latex pillow-top for an additional fee.

The Eden Mattress’ support core includes 8 inches of pocketed coils, which are reinforced around the perimeter for better edge support. These pocketed coils promote airflow throughout the mattress to help keep the sleep surface cool. A 1-inch layer of latex with wool at the base of the mattress stabilizes the coils and prevents sleepers from bottoming out.

The Eden is encased in a breathable organic cotton cover that’s held in place with hand button tufting. Thanks to the button tufting and the use of natural wool as a fire barrier, the mattress does not require chemical adhesives or flame retardants. The mattress is GREENGUARD Gold certified, meaning it has been tested and found to be low in chemical emissions.

At 14 inches tall, the Eden Mattress may require deep-pocket sheets. The optional pillow-top adds 2 inches to the mattress, raising the total profile to 16 inches.

Mattress Prices and Sizing

The Eden Mattress has a lower-than-average price-point for a latex hybrid mattress. Natural latex mattresses usually cost more than polyfoam or memory foam models as they are more expensive to produce. However, latex also tends to be quite durable, making the Eden an attractive option for shoppers who don’t mind spending a little more for a quality product.

The optional pillow-top raises the price, but this add-on may be a worthwhile investment for sleepers who need extra pressure relief. The Eden Mattress is available in all the standard mattress sizes, from twin to California king.

Sizes Dimensions Height Weight Price
Twin 38" x 75" 14" N/A $1,000
Twin XL 38"x 80" 14" N/A $1,100

Mattress Performance

Motion Isolation

The Eden Mattress prevents most motion transfer between partners.

Latex doesn’t offer the close conforming of memory foam, but the Eden’s comfort layer still absorbs some movement before it can travel across the bed. Likewise, as the coils are individually wrapped, they transfer less movement than traditional innerspring coils. The wool and latex base also helps dampen excessive motion.

The Eden Mattress may not isolate movement quite as well as the average all-foam mattress, but most couples should be able to sleep relatively undisturbed.

Pressure Relief

Most sleepers receive sufficient pressure relief from the Eden Mattress.

After the initial layer of plusher wool batting, the latex comfort system has a medium feel that contours moderately around the sleeper’s body. In the support core, the pocketed coils flex to add targeted spinal support and minimize pressure build-up in the lumbar area.

Sleepers seeking deep pressure relief can opt for the 2-inch latex pillow-top.

Temperature Control

Temperature neutrality is a key strength of the Eden Mattress.

Breathable cotton and moisture-wicking wool help reduce heat build-up around the sleeper’s body. The latex has an open-cell structure that makes it much more breathable than foam, and the pocketed coils promote airflow and allow heat to escape from the mattress’ core.

Thanks to its above-average temperature regulation, the Eden Mattress is a great choice for people who tend to sleep hot.

Edge Support

The Eden’s support core contains 8 inches of thick steel coils, with a reinforced perimeter to prevent sinking around the edges. Sleepers should be able to lie right up to the edge of the bed without feelings of roll-off.

Edge support is an especially important feature for people who share a smaller mattress. Many people also rely on robust edge support when getting in and out of bed.

Ease of Movement

The Eden allows for easy movement on top of the mattress.

Wool has a springy quality that provides some initial resilience, and latex doesn’t hug the body as closely as memory foam, which some sleepers find to be too restrictive. The pocketed coil core also provides pushback.

Despite being relatively plush for a latex mattress, the Eden’s responsive components prevent sleepers from feeling trapped when changing sleeping positions.

Sex

Most couples should find that the Eden Mattress performs very well for sex.

The combination of wool, latex, and pocketed coils provide bounce that helps facilitate movement during sex, and the strong edge support enables full use of the bed. Partners should feel free to change positions without feeling restricted. With a medium firmness level, the Eden Mattress is also soft enough to cushion pressure points during sex.

Pocketed coils don’t make as much noise as interconnected innersprings, although couples who wish to be discreet may prefer an all-foam mattress with zero squeaks and creaks.

Off-Gassing

As with most natural latex hybrid mattresses, the Eden emits minimal odors when it is first unboxed.

Off-gassing scents tend to be caused by volatile organic compounds (VOCs), a by-product of the foam manufacturing process. Since the Eden Mattress does not contain memory or polyfoam, it does not off-gas in the traditional sense.

Some users might notice a faint rubbery smell when the mattress arrives, but any odors the mattress does give off should subside within 24 to 72 hours. If you are sensitive to smell, you can let the mattress air out in a well-ventilated room before sleeping on it.

Sleeping Style and Body Weight

Side Sleepers: The Eden Mattress is an excellent choice for most side sleepers. Side sleepers typically need a softer mattress, as they’re more likely to develop sharp pressure points in the shoulders and hips. With a medium (5) firmness level, the Eden provides just enough cushion for these areas of tension.

On the other hand, without a sturdy support core, side sleepers can sink too deeply into their mattress around the hips and waist and experience poor spinal alignment. The Eden Mattress’ pocketed coils and 1-inch latex and wool base provide a sturdy base for the spine.

Side sleepers above 130 pounds obtain the contouring pressure relief they need from the Eden Mattress. While the mattress does accommodate side sleepers under 130 pounds, these individuals tend to stay more on top as opposed to in the mattress, and may experience some slight pressure points.

The optional 2-inch latex pillow-top can provide extra cushion for side sleepers who need a deeper comfort section.

Back Sleepers: Back sleepers who weigh less than 230 pounds receive the right balance of support and pressure relief from the Eden Mattress.

Since back sleeping is a position that naturally promotes spinal alignment, back sleepers sleep best on an even surface that supports the head, neck, and upper body. For back sleepers under 130 pounds, the Eden Mattress provides the perfect level of contouring to support the spine while relieving pressure in the lower back. Back sleepers between 130 and 230 pounds also obtain adequate support from the Eden Mattress, although some may prefer a slightly firmer mattress.

The Eden Mattress is too soft for most back sleepers above 230 pounds. These individuals experience too much sinkage in the hips, which can disrupt their spinal alignment.

Stomach Sleepers: The Eden Mattress is not ideal for stomach sleepers, although those who weigh less than 130 pounds may find it suitable.

Most stomach sleepers prefer a medium firm or firm mattress that delivers more support than cushioning. Mattresses that are too soft cause the hips to sink in too deeply, which can cause tension in the neck and the lower back. This is the case for stomach sleepers over 130 pounds, who may find the Eden Mattress lacks support.

By contrast, stomach sleepers under 130 pounds exert less pressure on the mattress. This causes the mattress to feel subjectively firmer, and the Eden is better able to maintain spinal alignment for these individuals.
