Watch the video below to see how the Nolah Signature Mattress performed when put to the test in the Sleep Foundation Lab.
The Nolah Signature has an all-foam construction with four layers altogether and an organic cotton cover. Since it has a flippable design with two comfort systems, it has a slightly higher-than-average profile of 12 inches.
The organic cotton cover of the Nolah Signature wicks away moisture. The cotton is unbleached and is not treated with any other harsh chemicals.
The medium soft (4) side of the mattress has a thicker comfort layer and a transitional layer on top of the support core, which help the mattress relieve pressure and conform closely. The 2.5 inches of plush AirFoam cushions the body and reduces tension. AirFoam is more resilient than memory foam, so it returns to its original shape more quickly. The 1.5-inch polyfoam transition layer adds extra reinforcement to prevent sleepers from sinking into the support core, which helps keep the spine aligned.
The firm (7) side has a single comfort layer that does not conform as closely. This side is more supportive, as sleepers can feel more of the high-density support core beneath the AirFoam. The high-resilience AirFoam comfort layer makes it easy to move around or change positions as needed. AirFoam has an open-cell structure that allows both sides to regulate temperature better than traditional viscoelastic memory foam by dissipating heat.
The support core of the Nolah Signature is in the center of the mattress. The seven-inch core of high-density polyfoam reinforces the comfort system on each side.
The Nolah Signature is flippable, with four polyfoam layers and an organic cotton cover.

The Nolah Signature’s sticker price is considered above-average for an all-foam mattress, but is on par with other flippable models due to their specialized construction. The Nolah Original 10 costs less than the Signature, while the Evolution 15 costs more.
The Nolah Signature is available in standard sizes twin through California king.

Side Sleepers: Side sleepers press their hips and shoulders into the mattress. Foam responds proportionately to pressure, which cushions these areas and keeps the spine aligned.
The medium soft side of the Nolah Signature is excellent for side sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. Sleepers in this category need a soft to medium soft mattress in order to sink in enough and experience the conforming benefits of the mattress. This reduces pressure on the shoulders and hips. Side sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds also benefit from the bed’s softer surface. The transition layer keeps sleepers from sinking in too far, while the comfort layer provides good cushioning for the shoulders and hips. Side sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds will likely find this side is too soft.
The firm side of the Nolah Signature has a thinner layer of responsive AirFoam, which cushions the shoulders and hips enough while keeping the spine aligned. This is good for side sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds, but is too firm for those who weigh less than 130 pounds. Sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds will feel more of the support core beneath the comfort layer.
Back Sleepers: Back sleepers keep a neutral posture as they sleep but need an even, supportive surface to maintain spinal alignment. Conforming foam, like the AirFoam used in the Nolah Signature, benefits the lumbar region and relieves pressure on the back.
The softer side is a good fit for back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. It conforms enough to reduce tension and keep the spine aligned. This side is likely too soft for those who weigh more than 130 pounds. If the lower back presses into the mattress too much, it can lead to spinal misalignment.
The firm side is more supportive, which is excellent for back sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds. It conforms enough to relieve any pressure on the lower back and keeps sleepers from sinking in. This is beneficial for back sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds too. Those who weigh less than 130 pounds are less likely to experience any conforming and may find this side is too firm.
Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleepers usually prefer a firmer sleep surface to keep the hips from sinking in excessively. Stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds, though, may prefer the softer side of the Nolah Signature. For sleepers in this weight category, the medium soft surface will cushion the shoulders and chest while properly supporting the hips.
The firm side of the mattress is better for stomach sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds. This side keeps the hips lifted and prevents pressure on the lower back. The spine is kept in alignment. The AirFoam still offers moderate contouring and cushions the chest and shoulders for comfort.
