Amerisleep is best known for its line of memory foam beds named AS1 through AS5. Hybrid versions are also available for the AS2, AS3, and AS5, but those aren’t the only hybrid models in Amerisleep’s product line. The Organica is a latex hybrid mattress that measures 13 inches thick. This falls within the typical height range of hybrid mattresses and between the thicknesses of the all-foam and hybrid versions of the AS series.

The Organica contains a latex comfort layer and a coil system for support. The medium firm (6) feel offers a strong balance of resilience, support, and comfort for most sleepers regardless of their weight and sleep position. For sleepers who run hot, this mattress has very good temperature regulation.

The high-end materials and construction are reflected in the Organica’s price-point, which runs slightly higher than average hybrid models on the market. However, this model consists of more eco-friendly, durable materials than many hybrids, which may justify the extra cost.

We will examine the bed’s materials, construction, performance, and price-point to help determine if it is the right mattress for your needs.

Organica Mattress Review Breakdown

The Organica by Amerisleep is a hybrid mattress that combines two latex layers with a pocketed coil system. The mattress is medium firm, with a rating of 6 on a 10-point firmness scale.

A breathable GOTS-certified organic cotton cover encases the mattress. Beneath is a 1-inch layer of wool that provides a soft cushion on the bed’s surface. The wool also enhances the bed’s breathability and helps with temperature regulation through all seasons.

The comfort layer contains 3 inches of natural Talalay latex, which gives the mattress bounce while also moderately conforming to the body. Next, an 8-inch pocketed coil system offers targeted relief to parts of the body that might need more support or contouring while enhancing the bed’s bounce and air circulation. Finally, a 1-inch layer of Dunlop latex offers support to the coil system and helps increase the bed’s durability.

The GOTS certification for the mattress’ cotton cover means that the yarn meets strict organic standards. The Organica uses wool and latex with OEKO-TEX certification, which means that the materials have been tested for the presence of certain potentially harmful substances. The latex is also certified by the Rainforest Alliance, which helps ensure sustainable production practices. Due to the Organica’s latex construction, however, those with latex allergies should consult with their doctor before making a purchase.

Mattress Prices and Sizing

The Organica Mattress is a premium hybrid model with a higher price-point than many other hybrid mattresses. This is due in part to its latex construction since natural latex is generally more expensive than foam. The other high-end materials also contribute to the extra cost.

Mattress Performance

Motion Isolation

The Organica does not isolate motion as well as many foam-based hybrid beds, though it does offer some features that may help reduce motion transfer more than typical latex hybrid models.

Latex beds are known for their bounce, which makes them less conducive to motion absorption. Coil systems also tend to enhance the springiness of latex hybrid mattresses. The Organica has a wool layer that absorbs some of the bounce, and the pocketed construction of the coils helps limit the spread of vibrations across the support layer. However, partners are likely to feel some of each other’s movements in bed.

Pressure Relief

The Organica’s latex comfort layer and coil core provide moderate relief to pressure points during sleep. However, they may not provide enough relief for sleepers who experience a significant amount of discomfort or pain from pressure points. This is especially likely for side sleepers who weigh under 130 pounds.

Latex has a responsive quality that contours slightly with the shape of your body. This provides gentle cradling for sleepers who tend to put pressure on areas like the shoulders, hips, and lower back. Additionally, a layer of wool cushions these critical areas. The Organica also has a coil system designed to offer targeted support to further enhance the bed’s balanced feel.

The degree of relief a sleeper receives will depend largely on their weight. Generally, sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds will experience greater pressure relief from the Organica than those who weigh less than 130 pounds.

Despite its pressure-relieving qualities, the Organica Mattress does not hug the body to the same degree as synthetic foam mattresses. Since latex is more resilient than traditional memory foam and polyfoam, it typically does not offer as much contouring. Those who prefer close-conforming pressure relief may be better served by an all-foam model or a foam-based hybrid.

Temperature Control

Latex-based hybrid mattresses tend to offer very good temperature control, and the Organica is no exception.

While foam comfort layers conform closely to the body, latex is bouncier and limits sinkage. This allows air to circulate more freely around the body. Latex also does not retain as much heat as most synthetic foam, which allows the bed to stay cooler at night.

As with all hybrid beds, the Organica’s coil system further cools the bed by allowing air to pass between coils. This aeration process allows warm air to be replaced with cool air, thereby reducing heat buildup on the sleep surface.

In addition, the wool layer absorbs moisture, enhances the bed’s breathability, and provides natural temperature-regulating properties. All these factors make the Organica a very good option for sleepers who run hot.

Edge Support

Sleepers in need of good edge support will likely be satisfied with the Organica’s sturdy perimeter.

The strong coil system and medium firm feel give the Organica stable sides. This support helps prevent sagging, which ensures greater usability of the bed’s entire surface area. A sturdy edge is also important for sleepers who have trouble getting into and out of bed.

Like many hybrid models, the Organica’s coil system was designed with edge support to further reinforce the perimeter. In contrast, foam beds often have weaker edges that tend to sag over time.

Ease of Movement

Thanks to its latex construction, most sleepers will find it easy to move around the surface of the Organica Mattress.

Latex is naturally bouncy and supportive, which means your body will not sink in too far. The bounce helps facilitate ease of movement, allowing sleepers to shift without feeling “stuck” in the mattress as they may on some memory foam comfort layers.

The coil system also provides springiness and support to promote mobility on the bed surface.

Sex

For many couples, the Organica Mattress’ resilience and bounce are conducive to sex.

The natural bounce in Organica’s latex comfort layer makes it easy for couples to move around on the bed. The coil system enhances this springiness.

Because of its latex and coil construction, the Organica may be a better option for sex than foam-based hybrid mattresses, which typically hug the body and create sinkage that can inhibit movement and limit bounce.

Off-Gassing

The Organica has minimal to non-existent off-gassing, making it a good option for those who may be concerned about associated odors.

As with other natural latex mattresses, the Organica typically does not release off-gassing odors as much as foam beds, though there may be a slight rubbery smell. If a customer detects any odors upon unpacking the mattress, it will likely dissipate within hours to a few days. In addition, several components hold OEKO-TEX and/or eco-INSTITUT certification to help ensure that the materials are free of some of the most common harmful substances sometimes found in mattresses.

Sleeping Style and Body Weight

The Organica Mattress has a latex comfort layer and responsive coil system designed to provide balanced pressure relief and support. These features make the model suitable for an array of sleeping positions and body types. However, the amount of pressure relief and spinal support depends largely on the sleeper’s weight.

Side Sleepers:
Side sleepers often require a mattress with good pressure relief since they tend to put pressure on their shoulders and hips. The Organica has a resilient latex comfort layer that offers moderate pressure relief, and the coil system is designed to offer targeted support to critical areas of the body.

Since they won’t sink in very deeply on this medium firm model, side sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds may not experience enough contouring to relieve their pressure points. Side sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds will sink further into the mattress and thus enjoy more cradling than those in the lighter category.

The side sleepers likely to benefit the most from the Organica are those who weigh more than 230 pounds. Their weight allows them to sink more deeply into the mattress, providing them with more significant contouring to redistribute their body weight more evenly across the mattress surface.

Back Sleepers:
Like side sleepers, back sleepers usually benefit from mattresses with good support and pressure relief, especially in the lumbar area. The Organica Mattress has a medium firm feel that makes it suitable for back sleepers of all weights.

Those who favor this sleep position typically require a mattress that is firm enough to prevent the hips from sinking too deeply into the bed. At the same time, the mattress should contour enough to provide some cushioning for the lower back. The Organica strikes a nice balance between firm support and contouring softness due in part to the resilient properties of the latex comfort layer.

If you are a back sleeper who weighs between 130 and 230 pounds, the Organica Mattress may be an excellent option for ensuring healthy sleep posture. Keep in mind that back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds may not receive as much contouring, while back sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds may find that the mattress isn’t firm enough for ideal support.

Stomach Sleepers:
Stomach sleepers need a mattress that is firm enough to prevent the abdomen from sinking into the bed but not so firm as to be uncomfortable. The Organica achieves this balance. The model provides enough support to promote good spinal alignment for stomach sleepers, while the bounce and plush wool layer enhance the comfort.

Because of its medium firm feel, the Organica Mattress is best suited for stomach sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds. Back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds may not enjoy as much cushioning as they’d like. Those who weigh more than 230 pounds could sink too far into the mattress, which may lead to spinal misalignment.
