Sleep On Latex Mattress Review Breakdown

The Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress by Sleep On Latex is constructed of latex, cotton, and wool. It comes in three firmness options, which the company identifies as Soft, Medium, and Firm. The Soft version rates around 4 on the 10-point firmness, which could be classified as medium-soft. Rating at a 6, the Medium option could be considered medium-firm. The Firm option rates between 7 and 8, so it is truly firm.

Two thickness options are also available. A low-profile option measures 6 inches thick, while the standard version is 8 inches thick. Both options use an organic cotton cover, which is breathable to let air circulate into the mattress. Next, there is a layer of organic wool batting. This material serves as a fire barrier while adding plushness. Wool is also renowned for its temperature regulation, transferring away heat and moisture.

The 6-inch version of the mattress consists of one 6-inch layer of natural Dunlop latex, while the 8-inch version of the mattress uses both a 2-inch layer and a 6-inch layer of natural Dunlop latex. This natural foam is crafted from the sap of rubber trees. Dunlop latex tends to be durable, pressure-relieving, and somewhat springy.

Mattress Performance

  • Motion Isolation

    Soft: 4/5, Medium: 3/5, Firm: 3/5

    Latex mattresses usually absorb a moderate amount of motion. However, there is often mild motion transfer as a result of latex’s natural springiness.

    The Medium and Firm versions of the Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress have similar motion isolation to most latex mattresses. While they limit vibrations across the surface of the bed, sleepers could still notice when their partner changes positions during the night. The Soft version of the Pure Green Natural Latex isolates motion to a greater extent, so it may be appropriate for sleepers who tend to wake up when their partner moves.

  • Pressure Relief

    Like most latex models, the Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress performs well in pressure relief. The latex adjusts to each sleeper’s body shape and redistributes their weight out to limit pressure buildup around the hips and shoulders. Unlike memory foam and polyfoam, latex has low point elasticity. Instead of compressing directly under the weight of the sleeper, the compression is spread over a wider area. This leads to pressure relief without much hug or sinkage. Many sleepers compare it to a floating sensation. A layer of wool batting also cushions the surface of the mattress for extra plushness.

    Which version of the mattress provides the best pressure relief will vary based on the sleeper’s weight and preferred position. The section below will give a detailed breakdown on how sleep position and body weight may affect the sleep experience. In general, lightweight sleepers usually prefer a softer option for more contouring, while heavier individuals often favor a firmer mattress for balanced contouring and support.

  • Temperature Control

    Because of the open-cell structure of latex foam, most all-latex mattresses tend to sleep cool thanks to ample airflow through the sleep surface. The Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress takes this temperature regulation to the next level. In addition to using latex, the Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress has a breathable cotton cover that lets cool air enter the bed and warm air escape. Wool batting helps wick heat and moisture away from the sleeper’s body to keep them cool and dry.

  • Edge Support

    Soft: 3/5, Medium: 4/5, Firm: 4/5

    While the Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress and most other all-latex models lack dedicated edge reinforcements, the perimeter of the Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress feels sturdier than most latex mattress edges.

    This is particularly true of the Medium and Firm versions of the mattress, which shouldn’t sag much when an individual sits or sleeps close to the edge of the bed. The perimeter of the Soft option may feel slightly less secure, but it is unlikely to limit the usable surface of the bed for most people. However, individuals who weigh over 230 pounds might notice more edge sinkage.

  • Ease of Movement

    Latex tends to be more responsive than memory foam or polyfoam, which often makes it easier to move on. The Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress is similarly easy to move on to most latex models.

    Its natural Dunlop latex foam responds quickly to changes in pressure and does not allow a lot of sinkage, so most sleepers won’t struggle to change positions during the night.

  • Sex

    Soft: 3/5, Medium: 4/5, Firm: 4/5

    Couples often prefer a bouncy surface for sex, and latex mattresses often provide the responsiveness they’re looking for. The Sleep On Latex Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress has a buoyant feel similar to most latex models.

    Because they limit sinkage, the Medium and Firm options may be particularly suitable for amorous activity. The Soft version may have a little less bounce, but it is likely to have a bit more traction. All versions of the mattress should be virtually silent, so couples can use the mattress discreetly.

  • Off-Gassing

    Any new mattress may have an initial “new” smell, but natural latex models are usually less prone to odors than models that use synthetic foams. The Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress could have a slight natural or rubbery smell when first unboxed, but this smell should dissipate relatively quickly. If you find the smell off-putting, you can leave your mattress in a different room while it airs out. Most smells should dissipate within a couple of days.

Sleeping Style and Body Weight

Side Sleepers:

With three firmness and two thickness options, a version of the Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress can be an exceptional match for virtually any side sleeper. The Dunlop latex cradles a side sleeper’s curves, reducing pressure buildup near their wider areas while supporting the spine. Wool padding adds a touch of plushness.

Which version of the mattress is optimal will depend largely on the sleeper’s weight. Individuals who weigh under 130 pounds are likely to prefer either the 6-inch or 8-inch Soft option. People who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds can get a better blend of contouring and support from the Medium setting of the 8-inch version of the mattress. Sleepers who weigh over 230 pounds may favor the 8-inch Firm option since it provides enough room to sink in while offering good support and contouring.

If the mattress is too firm for a side sleeper, they may have sharper pressure points near their shoulders and hips since these wider parts won’t be able to sink in as much as ideal. A mattress that is too soft could let the shoulders and hips sink in too deeply, putting a strain on the spine.

Back Sleepers:

Because the Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress comes in different firmness and thickness options, most back sleepers should be able to find a version of the mattress that meets their needs. Its Dunlop latex has a dense, supportive feel. The material adjusts to the shape of the sleeper, but it doesn’t have the same sinking sensation often associated with memory foam or polyfoam. Since back sleepers need a mattress that supports their natural spinal alignment, they may prefer sleeping “on” the mattress.

Back sleepers who weigh under 130 pounds should get enough support from the Soft version of the mattress. Those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds may get the best support from the Firm version of the mattress. Individuals who weigh over 230 pounds are likely to prefer the extra support and thickness of the 8-inch Firm version of the mattress.

A mattress that is firmer than ideal usually isn’t much of a problem for back sleepers. Their spines should stay relatively well-aligned, but the surface won’t feel as plush as they may prefer. If the mattress is too soft, back sleepers’ spines may not stay well-aligned. This could lead to pain in the lumbar region.

Stomach Sleepers:

Stomach sleepers from all weight groups should be able to find a version of the Sleep On Latex Pure Green Natural Latex Mattress that combines plushness and support. A layer of wool batting softens the surface of the mattress, while the Dunlop latex gives support.

The Medium version of the 8-inch mattress should be a good match for most stomach sleepers who weigh under 130 pounds. Individuals who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds can get the support they need from either the 6-inch or 8-inch Firm option. Stomach sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds may benefit from the thicker, more supportive 8-inch Firm option.

When a mattress is too soft for a stomach sleeper, the weight of their hips and bellies could pull their midsection too deeply into the mattress and strain their lumbar region. A mattress that is too firm may not be as plush as many stomach sleepers like, but it should still provide good spinal support.
