Happsy is an online bedding and sleep accessory brand that has been in business since 2017. The company specializes in products made from organic and sustainably sourced materials. In this review, we’ll take a look at the Happsy Organic Mattress. This latex hybrid model first debuted in May of 2017, and is the company’s only mattress at this time.
The Happsy Organic Mattress – known as the Happsy for short – is constructed with a comfort layer of GOLS-certified organic latex. The support core consists of individually pocketed coils made from tempered steel, and the cover is made of GOTS-certified organic cotton. Altogether, the mattress measures 10 inches thick.
The Happsy has a medium firm feel, which corresponds to a 6 on the 1-10 firmness scale. If that sounds too firm, Happsy also offers a GOLS-certified mattress topper specifically designed for use with the mattress. This topper has a plush feel; placing it on top of the Happsy results in a medium soft to medium (4-5) feel. If you choose, the topper is available for purchase with the mattress in a product bundle.
Read on to learn more about the Happsy Organic Mattress. Our comprehensive review covers construction and material composition, prices in each size, performance ratings across different sleeper categories, and certifications the mattress has earned. We’ll also include a brief analysis of customer and owner reviews for the mattress, along with an overview of Happsy’s shipping, return, and warranty policies.
The Happsy is a medium-profile hybrid mattress that measures 10 inches thick and has a medium firm (6) feel. The 2-inch comfort layer is made of ventilated latex. This material conforms to the body much like memory foam or polyfoam, but latex is also naturally responsive. As a result, the mattress has a springy surface feel when you first lie down, but you’ll feel a noticeable contour as your body sinks into the comfort layer. The latex has been certified as organic by the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS), a leading authority in sustainable mattress components. The certification is available to read on Happsy’s website.
The Happsy also contains a pocketed coil support core that measures 8 inches tall. The coils promote excellent stability throughout the mattress to ensure minimal sinkage along the edges and a flat, even surface for your body. The coils are made from tempered steel and are highly durable.
The mattress cover is produced from organic cotton that has been certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), another renowned organization in this field. Other certifications for the mattress include the GreenGuard Gold for low emissions and the Rainforest Alliance certification, which indicates the latex has been sustainably grown and harvested. All Happsy certifications are available to view in PDF format for website visitors.
Happsy also offers a GOLS-certified organic latex topper, which measures 2 inches thick and is intended for use with the mattress. Adding the topper adjusts the bed’s firmness to create a medium soft to medium (4-5) feel, which may be more comfortable for certain people (such as side sleepers and those who weigh less than 130 pounds).
The Happsy is a latex hybrid produced using a handful of different eco-friendly components. Read the full spec breakdown below:
GOTS-certified organic cotton
2″ GOLS-certified organic latex
3″ Memory Foam (Gel-Infused)
8″ steel-tempered pocketed coils
In a queen size, the Happsy costs $1,399 as a standalone mattress. Add the optional latex topper for a softer feel, and you’ll pay $1,798 for the same size. The cost of the topper in addition to the mattress fluctuates by size.
The Happsy is very affordable compared to other latex hybrids, which on average cost between $1,600 and $2,200. Ground shipping is also free for orders within the contiguous U.S., though you’ll pay an additional $300 for delivery if you reside in Alaska or Hawaii. Returns are free, as well, and Happsy will send couriers to pick up the mattress at your residence.

Like other latex hybrids, the Happsy provides good motion isolation but you may still notice some transfer across the mattress. Latex has conforming qualities and will cushion the body to a degree, but it is also naturally responsive and often creates a noticeable bounce on the surface. As a result, the material in the Happsy’s comfort layer does not quite absorb motion like memory foam or polyfoam. The pocketed coils also contribute to the springiness of the mattress. If you share your bed with someone, you probably won’t notice too much movement but there may be a bit of transfer when one of you changes positions or gets in and out of bed.
Adding the topper may improve the Happsy’s motion-isolating abilities. The topper has a plusher feel than the bed’s surface, and this allows the material to absorb more movement. That said, you may still feel some transfer even with the topper in place, but the Happsy performs reasonably well in this category compared to other similarly constructed mattresses.
The Happsy’s latex comfort layer contours the body but you won’t feel a deep cradle for your body as you might on memory foam. For some sleepers, less sinkage makes the mattress more comfortable, but others need extra conforming in order to feel less pressure. For instance, side sleepers gravitate toward softer mattresses that cushion the shoulders and hips to align the spine. Most people who weigh less than 130 pounds also need a softer feel and deeper contour from their bed. The topper may be helpful in this respect.
Fortunately, the Happsy should alleviate pressure reasonably well for people who weigh at least 130 pounds. This is particularly true for back and stomach sleepers, both of which tend to feel less pressure on firmer, more supportive beds. The resilient latex doesn’t sink excessively, so if you use either of these positions, you won’t need to worry about an uneven surface.
Temperature control is a major strength of the Happsy due to its various material components. Latex generally absorbs less body heat and sleeps cooler than memory foam or polyfoam, especially when ventilated with small holes to promote added airflow near the surface of the mattress. The organic latex found in the Happsy sleeps exceptionally cool even by these standards. If you tend to sleep hot on mattresses that retain and trap body heat, then the Happsy will probably feel much more comfortable by comparison.
The coils also regulate the bed’s temperature by promoting steady airflow throughout the interior of the mattress. Another cooling feature is the cover, which is made from breathable organic cotton. You may sleep a bit warmer if you use the latex topper, however. The softer feel creates a bit more sinkage, which in turn can restrict surface airflow and make you feel excessively hot.
Mattresses with thick coil systems tend to outperform other models in the edge support category, and the Happsy is no exception. The support core is constructed with 8-inch coils made of tempered-steel, a highly durable material that provides exceptional stability. You may notice some slight sinkage when sitting on the edges, but you’ll also feel some pushback from the coils and shouldn’t have too much trouble getting in and out of bed. The medium firm feel of the bed’s latex layer also prevents the perimeter from sagging too much.
Using the topper may cause you to sink a bit further when sitting on or lying near the perimeter, but probably not to an excessive or uncomfortable degree. The other components provide enough reinforcement to maintain an even feel. Additionally, latex is a very durable material that maintains its shape over time.
Some mattresses are difficult to move across because their surfaces are soft and prone to deep sinkage, which can make you feel like you’re trapped in the comfort layer when you get in and out of bed. This probably won’t be an issue with the Happsy, which maintains an even surface thanks to a resilient latex layer and responsive pocketed coils. Those of you who weigh more than 230 pounds may experience more sinkage, but even then the mattress provides decent bounce-back.
If the topper is in place, then you’re more likely to have trouble moving across the mattress. This is due to the topper’s softer feel. However, the topper is also made from latex and retains the same responsive qualities as the Happsy’s comfort layer.
If you and your partner prefer a gently contouring and responsive mattress for sex, then the Happsy should be ideal. The resilient latex and thick coils make the bed feel very springy, and this allows you to move across the mattress and change positions rather easily. Moderate conforming also provides decent traction, which not only enhances sex for many but also allows you to maintain a single position without the surface feeling too slick. Strong edge support is another asset for couples. You and your partner should have no trouble using the entire surface of the mattress however you see fit.
Additionally, the pocketed coils are fairly quiet. This makes the Happsy a discreet mattress for sex if the two of you crave a little extra privacy.
Off-gassing refers to initial smells that mattresses release after they are removed from their shipping boxes. Typically, the foulest offenders are beds with layers of polyfoam or memory foam. Models with latex layers like the Happsy also emit noticeable odor – many characterize the smell as rubber-like – but not to the same extent as their foam-based counterparts. The latex in this mattress is also ventilated, and the pocketed coils promote steady air circulation. Together, these two components can flush out unwanted odor rather quickly.
You’ll probably detect the telltale latex scent for about two or three days after the unboxing takes place. The smells will likely dissipate after that. If you continue to pick up on bothersome odors after the three-day mark, try placing the mattress in a well-ventilated room for another day or so. Ultimately, the smells will go away.
Side Sleepers: The Happsy’s latex comfort layer has a medium firm feel, so you’ll feel a slight contour as opposed to a deep body hug. This may be problematic for side sleepers weighing less than 130 pounds, who often prefer a mattress with soft padding in the comfort layer to cushion the body and align the spine. These individuals may feel added pressure in the shoulders, lower back, and/or hips. For these sleepers, the topper can soften the surface enough to promote better alignment and pressure relief.
Side sleepers who weigh 130 pounds or more will likely feel more comfortable, though these individuals – like their lighter counterparts – often demand a plusher surface feel. If you sleep on your side and need more support due to your body type or personal comfort preferences, then you may want to consider the standalone mattress. Adding the topper may be more suitable for side sleepers who like a bit of extra cushioning.
Back Sleepers: In many ways, the Happsy is an ideal mattress for back sleeping. The latex contours gently yet moderately, so you can feel less pressure without a deep sink or loss of support. The coils also provide excellent stability throughout the mattress to help maintain an even plane for your body, even in areas where you carry a disproportionate amount of weight (such as the stomach and hips). Back sleepers generally prefer a firmer mattress feel than side sleepers to ensure they won’t sink too much.
The Happsy will feel noticeably softer with the topper added, so you may notice more sinkage while lying on your back. If you weigh less than 130 pounds, then this feel might be optimal because you’ll feel more conforming and less pressure. Other back sleepers may find the Happsy more comfortable without the topper, especially if they weigh 130 pounds or more.
Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleeping can be problematic because many people who utilize this position feel aches and pains no matter which mattress they use. As you lie face-down, the weight from your chest, stomach, and hips can cause your midsection to sink deeper than the rest of your body. The Hoppsy is a great choice for stomach sleepers who weigh between 130 and 200 pounds. The medium firm feel and thick coils provide excellent reinforcement to keep your entire body even with the surface.
Stomach sleepers in other weight groups may feel differently. Those weighing less than 130 pounds will likely find the mattress a little too firm, and with that they may not experience enough conforming or pressure relief. The topper may be useful for some of these stomach sleepers. For those weighing more than 200 pounds, the mattress will probably feel more comfortable without the topper than with it – but even then, the Happsy won’t be firm enough for some.

The Happsy Organic Mattress is available both on Happsy’s website and Amazon.com. However, the mattress is not sold through any other retailers or online marketplaces, and Happsy does not operate any brick-and-mortar locations.
Happsy ships the mattress to all 50 states, but delivery elsewhere is not available at this time. The company offers free shipping via FedEx or UPS Ground throughout the contiguous U.S. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii, you’ll pay a $300 delivery surcharge.
Most customers receive their mattress in 10 to 12 business days. The package will be delivered directly to your doorstep, so no need to be at home when it arrives.
The Happsy is compressed, plastic-wrapped, and compressed before shipping, which allows the mattress to fit inside a standard delivery box. After the package arrives, carry it to the room where you plan to use it – and elicit help from someone else if you order a larger size, since the mattress can weigh up to 129 pounds. Unbox the Happsy, cut away the plastic wrapping, and watch the mattress expand. It should reach its full shape in 48 hours or less.
Expedited ground shipping, White Glove delivery, and old mattress removal are not available with any Happsy orders.
The Happsy comes with a 120-night sleep trial. Happsy recommends testing out the mattress for at least 30 nights in order to break it in properly, but this is not a requirement; you can return the mattress at any point during the trial and receive a full refund.
Happsy will also arrange for couriers to pick up the mattress from your residence at no extra charge. All returned beds are either recycled or donated to charity.
The Happsy Organic Mattress is backed by a 20-year warranty, which is partially prorated.
