OVERVIEW

Latex for Less offers competitively priced bedding products like mattresses, toppers, pillows, foundations, and adjustable bases. Many of the company’s products feature natural latex from Sri Lanka. The latex is sustainably produced from the sap of rubber trees without chemicals or fillers. As the name implies, Latex for Less keeps prices lower by manufacturing in-house and shipping directly to the customer.

Latex for Less makes three mattresses. Each model features a stretchy organic cotton cover and natural wool fire barrier.

The 2-Sided Natural Latex Mattress combines a latex comfort system with a firmer latex core. The flippable design has two distinct firmness levels: one side is firm (7), while the opposite is medium (5). The two surfaces can accommodate sleepers whose preferences may vary over time. The mattress is also available in 7- and 9-inch profiles.

The Organic Latex Mattress uses Dunlop latex for both the comfort and support layers. The higher price-point reflects its thicker latex construction and certified organic materials. The mattress comes in 9- and 12-inch heights as well as three firmness levels: soft (3), medium (5), and firm (7).

We’ll cover the Hybrid Latex Mattress, the brand’s only hybrid model. The mattress has a 3-inch organic latex comfort system, followed by 8 inches of pocketed coils. A .5-inch natural wool layer on the top and bottom of the mattress creates a 12-inch profile. Shoppers can choose between medium (5) and firm (7) models.

We’ll provide a detailed breakdown of the mattress’ construction, performance, sleep trial, and warranty. We’ll also discuss how the hybrid feels for different sleep positions and body types.

The Hybrid Latex Mattress comes in two firmness options: medium (5) and firm (7). The best firmness level for you depends on your sleep position, body weight, and personal preferences.

  • Choose Medium if… you’re a side or back sleeper who enjoys close contouring. The plusher surface offers a deeper hug, preventing pressure points from forming around the hips, shoulders, and spine. Couples who easily awaken when their partner moves or gets in and out of bed will experience better motion isolation on the medium version.
  • Choose Firm if… you prefer a responsive feel with moderate contouring. The sturdier surface is well suited to back and stomach sleepers who require more support below the torso area. Minimal sinkage allows sleepers to adjust positions more comfortably. Thanks to strong edge support, the firm feel gives co-sleepers plenty of stable surface
    area.

Mattress Performance

Motion Isolation

Medium: 3/5, Firm: 2/5

The Hybrid Latex Mattress is more responsive than other hybrid models, but it still isolates motion fairly well.

Each pocketed coil moves independently, so motion shouldn’t ripple across the surface. The fabric casing also helps absorb excess motion.

Dunlop latex is denser and less bouncy than Talalay latex, so it doesn’t transfer as much motion. That said, it doesn’t isolate motion as well as more body-conforming materials like memory foam.

The medium feel slightly outperforms the firm model in this category. The softer latex allows sleepers to sink more, which reduces motion transfer. The firm feel has a more responsive surface, so couples may notice when their partner moves.

Pressure Relief

Medium: 3/5, Firm: 2/5

Most sleepers should experience adequate pressure relief on the Hybrid Latex Mattress. Dunlop latex evenly contours sleepers without permitting deep sinkage. This helps spread body weight across the mattress, preventing pressure points. The soft cotton cover and wool layer provide subtle pressure relief.

The medium feel has plusher latex with more give, so it offers greater cushioning than the firm model. That said, sleepers over 230 pounds should gain more pressure relief on the firm model. By reinforcing heavier body areas, the firm feel distributes body weight more evenly for those over 230 pounds.

Temperature Control

Medium: 4/5, Firm: 4/5

Latex is known for regulating temperature well, so it’s not surprising that the mattress excels in this category. Despite its density, Dunlop latex is generally more breathable than memory foam. Its hugging sensation is also moderate, so it doesn’t trap as much heat.

Cotton and wool naturally dissipate heat and moisture, helping the mattress’ surface stay cool and dry. The pocketed coil core generates more airflow than a solid foam core.

Our testing team found the Hybrid Latex Mattress was a cooler alternative for sleepers who tend to find foam mattresses too hot.

Edge Support

Medium: 3/5, Firm: 4/5

Both firmness options have solid edge support, so the mattress’ entire surface area should feel stable.

Dense and durable, Dunlop latex resists premature sagging and deep impressions. Sleepers can therefore spread out without feeling like they’re rolling off the bed. Reinforced coils along the perimeter also boost edge support.

The firm feel offers superior edge support since it compresses less under weight and pressure. Couples and sleepers over 230 pounds may notice more outer edge sinkage on the medium model, especially as the mattress ages. In general, sleepers should feel secure on both models, whether when sitting or sleeping on the sides of the bed.

Ease of Movement

Medium: 3/5, Firm: 4/5

With its responsive feel and minimal sinkage, sleepers should have little difficulty moving on the Hybrid Latex Mattress. This is especially true for those who feel constrained by memory foam’s deeper body hug.

Dunlop latex’s notable push-back makes adjusting positions easier. The bouncy coiled core also ensures that sleepers don’t feel trapped inside the comfort system.

The firm model rates slightly higher than the medium feel since the surface yields even less. Sleepers over 230 pounds sink into the mattress more, so they might not move as freely on the medium model.

Sex

Medium: 3/5, Firm: 4/5

Responsive designs like the Hybrid Latex Mattress are generally favorable during sex.

Dense Dunlop latex gives couples ample traction, while the bouncy coiled core facilitates movement. The breathable cotton cover and wool layer helps draw out sweat and heat.

The firm model gives couples maximum surface area to move since it offers superior edge support. Couples should be able to move freely without overheating on both firmness options.

Off-Gassing

Medium: 4/5, Firm: 4/5

We found off-gassing was very faint for the Hybrid Latex Mattress. Unlike foam or synthetic latex, natural latex doesn’t contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These tiny particles are responsible for the chemical-like smell that new mattresses often emit.

Since the mattress arrives compressed in plastic, you might notice a subtle smell when you open the box. Natural wool sometimes has a faint earthy smell when new. Any odors should quickly dissipate once the mattress is decompressed and aired out in a room.

Side Sleepers:

Side sleepers usually need a softer mattress to relieve pressure buildup. While the Hybrid Latex Mattress isn’t particularly plush, its latex comfort system provides just enough give to ease tension at the hips and shoulders. The soft cotton cover and wool also pad sensitive pressure points.

We found the medium feel performed well for side sleepers across all weight ranges. The softer latex cradles the body without sacrificing support. The firm model is still plush enough for side sleepers over 130 pounds, but those under 130 pounds may develop pressure points on the hips and shoulders.

Back Sleepers:

Both firmness options are a great choice for back sleepers in any weight bracket. The latex comfort system doesn’t overly conform to the back, helping the spine stay level. A sturdy coiled core provides additional reinforcement below the lumbar region.

The medium feel is best suited for back sleepers under 130 pounds, as they benefit from extra cushioning on the shoulders and legs. Our back-sleeping testers over 130 pounds felt the most supported on the firm model, as it resisted deep compression below the torso area.

Stomach Sleepers:

The mattress delivers sturdy support for stomach sleepers. Most people carry the most weight around the midsection, so it can be challenging to keep neutral spine alignment when sleeping on your stomach. Responsive Dunlop latex cushions the shoulders and legs while minimizing deep sinkage below the hips and stomach. The strong coiled core reinforces the torso area so that the upper back doesn’t sink into the mattress.

The firm feel supports stomach sleepers in all weight groups, while the medium’s performance is somewhat mixed. The softer model is sturdy enough for stomach sleepers up to 230 pounds, but the mattress may sag excessively for those who weigh more.

Latex for Less Hybrid Latex Mattress Review Breakdown

The Latex for Less Hybrid Latex Mattress is a three-layer design with two main components: a latex comfort system and a pocketed coil core. The mattress is 12 inches thick and comes in two firmness levels: medium (5) or firm (7).

A soft and stretchy GOTS-certified organic cotton cover is designed to wick away heat and moisture. Below is a layer of organic wool that acts as flame retardant. Naturally breathable, the wool helps the mattress’ surface stay cool and dry.

The comfort system features a 3-inch layer of Dunlop latex that evenly contours sleepers. The latex is soft enough to relieve tension, yet firm enough to resist sagging. The medium feel has a bit more give, and the firm model provides more push-back, so sleepers don’t sink as much. Eco-Institut and GOLS certifications show that the latex meets strict health, social, and environmental standards.

An 8-inch pocketed coil core adds bounce while stabilizing the entire mattress. Each fabric-encased coil moves independently, so sleepers shouldn’t notice when their partner moves in bed. Pocketed coils also permit more airflow, helping the mattress stay temperature neutral.

The Hybrid Latex Mattress is compatible with most foundations, including box springs, flat or slatted bases, and adjustable bases.
