Follain’s New Capsule Collection

by thisorganicgirl @ This Organic Girl

Born and raised in Boston, you guys know my heart beats for Follain. Follain was Bean Town’s first green beauty store and now takes up not one but two local residences (Charles St and Back Bay). They also have a seasonal store on Nantucket and two additional stores, one in NYC and one in DC. Follain was my first introduction to green beauty and it was love at first sight. Before this breakthrough I was legit DIY-ing organic beet root powder blush and rubbing cocoa butter wafers on my lips for chapstick – girrrrlll, ain’t no one got time for dat! Follain took me from Neanderthal to Hollywood in like 2 seconds flat. Now that green beauty is picking up speed we are seeing A LOT more online and brick and mortars popping up for both brands AND curated shops. If you follow my travels on Instagram you will see that I LOVE hitting up green beauty shops where ever I go. I’ve been to ton. Credo in Boston, NYC and SF, Aillea + Fig and Flower in Atlanta, Lemon Lane in Nashville and I’m excited to hit up The Detox Market in LA next month too! Each shop has something […]

Will my Spindle mattress soften or sag? Yes. All mattresses do.

by Kim Novick @ spindle

All mattresses will eventually soften, sag or get an imprint from where you've been sleeping. The good news is that latex does it at half the rate of a conventional material. The normal compression in a traditional mattress is an inch and a half to two inches. Your Spindle is warrantied against impressions greater than 3/4". That's a "yuge" difference.

Best Latex Mattress Reviews: An In-Depth Buying Guide

by Scott @ Dorm Reports

At the end of the day, all of us yearn for a good night’s sleep, and choosing the best latex mattress for yourself can make a huge difference to your sleeping quality.

As cliche as it sounds, it’s true that we spend almost a third of our lives sleeping. There are a lot of people getting poor sleeping quality due to a wrong choice of mattress, but with so many selections out there, how do we know which one is the best option for us?

When we put together this buying guide, we look at not just individual reviews, as comfort and sleeping preference can be very subjective from person to person.

To capture the overall user satisfaction and choose the best latex mattress, a more accurate method is to look at hundreds of customer reviews and conduct in-depth research into the materials used for each mattress to understand what makes them great (or not).

We know most buyers do not have time to look into hundreds of mattresses and thousands of reviews, so we have done the homework singled out the best latex mattress in this guide.

We have also written detailed latex mattress reviews for each of our recommendations, feel free to read them up for more details before deciding on your purchase.

Best Latex Mattress: Critical Considerations

 

Buying a mattress is a one of the major purchases you’ll get for your household, so it’s important to put some considerations into your choices before making the final purchase decision.

Here’s some questions you should ask yourself before deciding which is the best latex mattress for you and your family:
.

BEST LATEX MATTRESS:

Keep in mind that what’s necessarily best for one person may not be the best for the next. While some users like to get the best bang for their bucks, others prefer to invest a substantial amount of money into their mattresses to ensure their sleeping quality and its longevity.

We work hard to detail the strengths and weaknesses of each recommendation we make, so you can make an informed decision on your purchase.
.

MATERIAL OF LATEX MATTRESS:

Not all latex mattresses are created the same. Latex foams used in mattresses can be divided into 100% natural, blended or hybrid latex or synthetic latex.

Models with high percentage of natural latex are more resilient, longer-lasting and comfortable for sleeping, and thus tend to be more expensive than their competitors.

The choice of latex material also affects a mattress’ certifications, off-gassing properties and safety for young kids.
.

CERTIFICATIONS OF LATEX MATTRESS:

There are a lot of certifications and labels used for the mattresses in this industry, but not all of them are actually worth considering. The most stringent certifications for latex mattresses include GOTS, GOLS and OEKO-TEX Standard 100.

Here’s a detailed explanation on the most common certifications you’ll come across, but all the latex mattresses recommended here have at least the CentiPur-US certification, ensuring that the HD polyurethane foam used at [...]

Eco Terra 11" Luxury Latex Mattress Review - Affordable Natural Latex Mattress - Dorm Reports


Dorm Reports

VIEW PRODUCT ON AMAZONEco Terra is a company that promotes eco-friendly mattresses, and this is shown in their Eco Terra 11″ Luxury Latex Mattress.While most other companies use hybrid or synthetic latex for their mattress production, Eco Terra has chosen to go the natural route and adheres to stringent certifications such as GOTS and OEKO-TEX Standard 100 (more on that below).Eco-friendliness and safety of a mattress is no doubt an important consideration for your family’s health, but most consumers are also concerned with their sleep quality, durability, as well as prices and warranties of their purchases.Therefore, in this in-depth Eco Terra 11″ luxury latex mattress review, we’ll talk about the inner structure of the mattress, points to note when selecting a firmness level, its certifications how do they affect you, as well as what other customers are saying about their purchases to help you make the best buying decision. Eco Terra 11″ Luxury Latex Mattress Review One of the first decisions you have to make when it comes to buying a mattress has to be the type of materials used to construct the product.Nowadays, consumers are flooded with a plethora of choices, such as memory foam, hybrid foam, latex and spring coils mattresses just to name a few.Out of all these selections, latex and memory foam mattresses are shown to provide some of the highest customer satisfactions and ratings. Latex mattresses are especially resilient, most notably the mattresses made of natural latex.The Eco Terra 11″ luxury latex mattress is one such example. Instead of using synthetic or latex hybrid, Eco Terra has opted for 100% natural latex for the upper layer for more comfort and durability.The ratio of natural and synthetic latex in the comfort layers of a mattress often correlates strongly with both the price and overall quality of the product.Mattresses with high percentage of natural latex are much more resilient, longer-lasting and comfortable for sleeping, and thus tend to be more expensive than their counterparts that use synthetic or latex hybrid. The Eco Terra 11″ Luxury Latex Mattress is made up of natural latex comfort layer and calibrated coil base layer, encased in a GOTS certified cotton cover. Image credit: Eco Terra Top Layer: 2.5″ of Natural Latex comfort layer.

Classic Brands Cool Gel Memory Foam Mattress Review

by Scott @ Dorm Reports

VIEW ON AMAZON

Classic Brands may not be the most popular brand when it comes to purchasing a mattress, but their Classic Brands Cool Gel Memory Foam Mattress is actually a strong contender for our best memory foam mattress category.

The company started back in 1971 as the Classic Corporation and specialized in selling waterbeds in the 70’s. Remember when waterbeds were the hype? The Classic Corporation was the leading company back then.

In 2002, the company became Classic Brands and expanded their product lines to high quality memory foam and latex mattresses. Specifically, this Cool Gel Memory Foam mattress is one of their most highly-rated product in the company’s line-up.

With that said, as we’ve observed time and time again, sleeping preference can vary greatly from person to person.

Therefore, in our Classic Brands Cool Gel Memory Foam Mattress review, we do not talk about individual experiences. Instead, we strive to provide detailed information about the product, and a summary from hundreds of customer feedback to help you form an informed buying decision.

 

Classic Brands Cool Gel Memory Foam Mattress Review

 

When it comes to memory foam mattresses, most companies provide a range of products with different thicknesses to appeal to the mass. Classic Brands is no different, and their Cool Gel memory foam line-up consists of the following variants:

10.5 inches (best price-to-performance ratio)
12 inches
14 inches

 

The mattress under this review is the 10.5 inches variant, and we’ve chosen this as one of our best recommendations for a reason – it provides similar comfort and satisfaction score compared to the thicker variants, but at a much cheaper price.

Here’s a quick comparison chart for each of the variant:

 

Each of the variant utilizes Cool Gel technology incorporated into the memory foam layer to provide better heat ventilation and temperature regulation.

The only difference between the thicker variants and the 10.5-inch version lies in the thickness in memory foam, poly gel support foam, and base foam layers enclosed within the removable cover.

As with all memory foam mattresses, the thicker variants tend to be plushier and softer compared to the thinner ones. Of course, the prices tend to be steeper as well due to the increased material costs.

In any case, the Classic Brands Cool Gel Memory Foam mattress is rated as medium-firm by most of its customers for the 10.5 inches variant. If you prefer a plushier and softer mattress, you can consider the Cool Gel Ultimate 14-inch variant or the 12-inch variant instead.

However, if you wish to stick to the 10.5-inch variant for economical reasons, we always recommend a good mattress topper to adjust the firmness of your mattress and make it plushier if you find it too firm.

Breaking it down, the Classic Brands Cool Gel Memory Foam mattresses consists of 3 layers:

 

 

Removable Cover. The white knit top and charcoal-grey knit sides removable cover is breathable and stretched 4-ways across the corners to achieve optimal surface tension. It works with the top layer of cool gel memory foam to contour the sleeper’s body shape.
.
Top Layer: 2″ Cool Gel memory foam. This [...]

Lucid Gel Memory Foam Mattress Review

by Scott @ Dorm Reports

VIEW ON AMAZON

Lucid Mattress as a company has made great strides in the past few years as an established online mattress company. Apart from their excellent latex mattress, the Lucid Gel Memory Foam Mattress has also earned a spot as one of the best memory foam mattresses on the market right now.

Since Lucid is an online company, it’s very difficult to find a retailer that lets you try it before buying. On the flip side, this presents an advantage for the brand – the customers can save hundreds of dollars by cutting out the middle man (retailers) in the buying process.

With that said, as we have observed time and time again, sleeping preference can vary greatly from one user to another. What we like may not be a good fit for you.

Therefore, this Lucid Gel Memory Foam Mattress review will not revolve around individual experiences. We focus on giving detailed and objective facts about the mattress, as well as a summary from hundreds of customer feedback to help you form an informed buying decision.

 

Lucid Gel Memory Foam Mattress Review

 

As with most other companies, Lucid provides a selection of thicknesses for their Gel Memory Foam mattresses line-up to appeal to the mass. Their current product portfolio consists of the following thicknesses:

8 Inches
10 Inches (best price-to-performance ratio)
12 Inches

 

Here’s a quick comparison chart for each of the variants:

 

The variant currently under review is the 10 inch variant, and we’ve chosen this as our best recommendation based on several reasons.

Firstly, we are always looking for the best price-to-performance ratio to make sure our readers get the best bang for their bucks.

Out of these few selections, the satisfaction score doesn’t different significantly going from 10 inches to 12 inches. It’s way more economical to purchase the 10 inch variant.

Secondly, we recommend the medium firmness instead of medium-plush firmness if you are unsure which firmness will suit you better.

It’s always recommended to start with a firmer mattress, and add a mattress topper if you want a plushier feel. It’s easy to make a mattress softer, but it’s difficult to make it firmer.

Thirdly, one of the best selling points of the Gel Memory Foam mattresses is their superior temperature regulation and body heat dispersal.

The TENCEL Blend mattress cover is an important component in this process due to its high breathability, so it is much better to get a variant with TENCEL Blend than polyester cover.

Breaking it down, the Lucid 10 Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress consists of 2 layers wrapped in the TENCEL Blend cover:

 

 

Premium TENCEL Cover. The TENCEL cover is a noticeable upgrade over the polyester cover used on the base 8-inch variant. It’s soft, breathable, and comes from an eco-friendly manufacturing process. It also creates a nice air layer between your body and the mattress.
.
Top Layer: 2.5″ ventilated gel-infused memory foam. Whether you sleep on your side, back, or stomach, you need a soft layer that contours to your shape to prevent painful pressure points. This layer distributes your body weight evenly to prevent pressure build-up on [...]

Brooklyn Bedding Latex Mattress Review

by Scott @ Dorm Reports

VIEW PRODUCT ON AMAZON

Brooklyn Bedding Latex Mattress is one of the more popular choices when it comes to selecting a latex mattress. As Brooklyn Bedding is a household name, you have probably slept on one of their mattresses before.

The Brooklyn Bedding latex mattress has carved a spot for itself in our recommendation list based on various considerations – including value, comfort, customers satisfaction, longevity and certifications.

While certain aspects such as comfort and preference for firmness can be very subjective and different from person to person, we choose to look at hundreds of customers reviews to get an objective conclusion.

Therefore, in our detailed Brooklyn Bedding latex mattress review, we’ll talk about the inner structure of the mattress, points to note when selecting a firmness level, its certifications how do they affect you, as well as what other customers are saying about their purchases to help you make the best buying decision.

 

Brooklyn Bedding Latex Mattress Review

 

Choosing a good mattress can be quite a daunting task.

As soon as you have decided on the size and type of mattress you want to purchase, you need to think about your sleeping pattern and choose a firmness that suits you and your partner.

Fortunately, Brooklyn Bedding made this choice pretty straight-forward for their customers.

They offer only one type of mattress (latex) in 3 different firmness – soft, medium and firm to cater to customers with different sleeping style.

While the medium firmness is by far their most popular offering, you should choose a firmness that is catered to your sleeping style.

3 different firmness levels offered by Brooklyn Bedding latex mattress. Image credit: Brooklyn Bedding

 

Here’s a general guide on the firmness you should choose:

Soft Comfort Level
.
The soft Brooklyn Bedding latex mattress offers an ultra-plush comfort that cradles and hugs your body but doesn’t sacrifice support.
.
It’s suitable mainly for side sleepers and back sleepers, as it provides adequate support for shoulders, back and hips in these sleeping positions. It doesn’t offer enough support for stomach sleepers who exert most of the pressure on their mid-section.
.
Choose soft comfort level if you like the ‘sink’ feeling of soft mattresses and love being hugged by your mattress, and if you are not a stomach sleeper.
.
Medium Comfort Level
.
The medium Brooklyn Bedding latex mattress is their most popular firmness level that offers a luxurious plush feel with a firm support.
.
It’s good for side sleepers, back sleepers and stomach sleepers due to the good combination of plush and support that it provides.
.
Choose medium comfort level if you prefer a medium or firmer surface, where the mattress does not sink that much. If you have a sleeping partner with different sleeping positions, this will be the best compromise for both parties.
.
Firm Comfort Level
.
The firm Brooklyn Bedding latex mattress is supportive and comfortable yet allows little depression when laying on the mattress.
.
It’s targeted towards back sleepers and stomach sleepers who exert more pressure onto their bodies and need proper support from the mattress. Not suitable for side sleepers as the firm surface may result in shoulder pains.
.
Choose [...]

Mould Testing Overview - Pros and Cons of Different Methods

by noreply@blogger.com (Corinne) @ My Chemical-Free House

First I want to talk about the most reliable test which is how you feel in the house compared to other places. Unfortunately this is not always as simple as it sounds to execute. There are different ways to undertake this experiment. The simplest way is to stay in your backyard in a tent or all metal trailer without bringing any possessions from the house. The most obvious complication here is that you will need to go inside to use the washroom unless you get a porta potty! You may also be so sensitive that the house has contaminated the air outside (I have experienced being outside of a house and being able to smell the mould).

The next option would be to stay somewhere where other people recovering from mould illness (and MCS) have felt better. This could be a campground, KOA cabin, Airbnb or other rental. I have a lot more details on this in my post on the Locations Effect and Mould Sabbatical.

Once you have gotten "clear" and done some recovering you might be wondering how do you test a house to find out if it's good? Some people can walk into a house and know if it's good for them. But even the most sensitive people usually need to request to spend 3 nights trialling the house. This is not always an option, but you should ask. Usually people sleep better in a house that is mould free, but me and other CIRS patients have found that there is some mould that puts you into a zombie sleep where you sleep more (and then get sicker). So even a three-night test can be tricky.

It is also good to verify the house is safe with mould testing. The most common test for CIRS (mould patients) is the ERMI. It is highly recommended by Shoemaker certified doctors as the test to use. The range of the ERMI scores goes from minus 10 to positive 20. You need a score or 2 or lower to be treated and recover from mould illness according to Dr. Shoemaker.

Other types of mould tests can also be useful. A tape lift will get you definitive results on visible mould. I look at the options below. This is a very simple overview just to give you the general idea of what is out there in a way that is not overwhelming - you may want to look more into each of these different methods. Please note that my sources were biased towards mould advocates Lisa Petrison from Paradigm Change, Greg Muske from Biotoxin Journey, Dr. Shoemaker and Cheryl Ciecko, an architect who specialises in mould. I have attempted to cross-check their information. However, going with information from the companies that do house inspections can be biased and contradictory. (All sources at end of post, which you can read for more detail).

ERMI

Cons

- Doesn’t work well in brand new houses.

- You need dust that has settled for a while (wait 4-6 weeks to re-test an area).

- Having very little dust or a high amount of dust can skew results.

- Having a high amount of outside dirt inside can skew results. Having high or low outdoor spores counts can skew results.

- May not be an even distribution of spores throughout the house if mould is only coming from one place and the house is large.

- It is known to miss major mould problems when people are very sick in their house. Similarly, after a remediation, a CIRS patient can still be sick from the mycotoxins left behind despite a low score.


Pros

-"Only the ERMI and HERTSMI have been associated with sequential activation of innate immune responses, not air testing.” Dr. Shoemaker. Meaning it is the only test that he found that is consistently in line with lab results for CIRS, despite its drawbacks.

- Vacuum method can pick of heavy spores like Stachy and the Swifer method can also be used to pick up places with accumulated dust that has been there for 4 months. John Banta always tries to use the vacuum method over swipe method.

- It's pretty affordable at $300. You do it yourself. The lab recommended is Mycometrics.

HERTSMI-2

-Similar to ERMI but tests for a handful of moulds most commonly associated with water damaged buildings. It is cheaper than ERMI. I would go for the full ERMI and you can still calculate your HERTSMI value from that. Shoemaker certified doctors will consider your HERTSMI score as well as ERMI score.

Tape Lifts

Cons

- You need to have visible mould.

- It assists you with what type of mould it is and not how widespread the problem is.

Pros

- Tells you what kind of mould you have when you have a visible sample.

- Allows you to know if this is a toxic mould.

- You can do it yourself.

- It's the cheaper way to test for visible mould.

I used this DIY Tape Lift to test a few areas in a house I go into often. The results came back showing me what type of mould it was. It confirmed that the mould was one that is toxic that comes from water damage. Though you need to get a decent amount of mould on the tape otherwise your results will just show scattered pieces.

Spore Traps (Air Test)

Cons

- Needs to be taken near the source, so you have to know where the source is.

- Shoemaker says: "The industry standard of sampling the air for spores is not an acceptable substitute for many reasons. One of the main limitations is that over 99% of the particles that carry the inflammagens from water damaged buildings are smaller than 3 microns. Spore traps can only detect particles that are larger than 3 microns and therefore, miss over 99% of the inflammagens.”

- Spore traps identify round, intact spores. So they will not catch evidence of past problem that have left mycotoxins.

- Can miss/underreport certain heavy species like stachy.

- Expensive.

Pros

- The test is more standardised than tape lifts, swabs, cultures, and mould-dogs, they claim.

- It is the most widely used mould test.

- You can compare inside and outside air.

Dishes

Cons

- Hard to know where to place the dish to get capture the mould if you don’t know where the mould is coming from.

- Doesn’t get you an accurate relative reading since some mould is harder to catch and some proliferate faster in the dish than others.

- Stachy is a slow grower compared to other moulds in the dish.

Pros

- Can be used in multiple places to compare and for general observation.

- Can give you more details on the exact type of mould than other tests.

- Inexpensive.

- John Banta does a culture of the dust used for ERMI to compare and get more details

Here is one you can do yourself.

Mould Dogs

Cons

- Can only detect a handful of moulds.

- Hard to know if they are well trained, look for good references of the company.

- They can’t tell you if it’s high amount of mould or a trace from after a remediation.

- The dog can only sniff in areas where they can reach.

Pros

- They are good at finding the source if it is within their reach.

- The dog can smell both live and dead mould.

- You can pinpoint the area where you need to do further testing.

VOC testing

Get Some Sleep: Naturally

by AustinNatural @ Austin Natural Mattress

Everyone needs to get a good night of sleep. This is no surprise to anyone I’m willing to bet considering a lack of a good, healthy night of rest is easily to recognize, and when the opposite occurs, easy to bemoan. Getting up after a restless battle of tossing and turning can have the same effect as operating in a nearly intoxicated-like state. Sleep deprivation is often caused by stress from your job, a long day of work, or just your mind struggling to keep the tasks of tomorrow straight in your head. Sleep aids are nothing new and we’ve...

Best Price Memory Foam Mattress Review – Best Price in Town?

by Scott @ Dorm Reports

VIEW ON AMAZON

Best Price Mattress may not be the first brand that comes to mind when you shop around for a mattress, but boy they don’t joke around. The Best Price Memory Foam Mattress is indeed one of the most value-to-money memory foam mattresses in the market right now.

How does the company gain an edge over the competitors in terms of pricing? Are we looking at a company that that cut corners just to make their products cheaper?

Luckily, that’s not the case. As it turns out, Best Price Mattress chose to cut the unnecessary expenses and kept what’s essential to make a good product.

No money is spent on ornate showrooms, overpriced packaging and expensive commissions for 3rd party retailers. Of course, this means they get less exposure and probably why you may have not heard of them.

On a flip side, they can afford to sell their products at a much lower price points compared to the competitors who feature their mattresses in showrooms and retailers.

With that said, price is only one of the factors to consider when it comes to important purchases like a mattress. Other vital determinants include comfort, mattress firmness, body support, pressure points relief, temperature regulation, etc.

As we have observed time and time again, sleeping preference can be very different from one person to the next. What’s best for us may not be the best fit for you.

Therefore, this Best Price Memory Foam Mattress review will not revolve around individual experiences. We focus on giving detailed and objective facts about the mattress, as well as a summary from hundreds of customer feedback to help you form an informed buying decision.

 

Best Price Memory Foam Mattress Review

 

As with most other companies, Best Price Mattress provides a selection of thicknesses for their Memory Foam mattresses line-up to appeal to the mass. Their current product portfolio consists of the following thicknesses:

6 Inches
8 Inches
10 Inches (best value for money)
12 Inches

 

Here’s a quick comparison chart for each of the variants:

 

The memory foam mattress currently under review is the 10-inch variant, and we’ve chosen this as our best recommendation based on several reasons.

Firstly, we are always looking at price-to-performance ratio to make sure our readers get the best bang for their bucks. As per usual, the thicker the mattress, the more expensive they get.

People usually prefer the thicker variants, but in this case, the satisfaction score doesn’t different significantly going from 10 inches to 12 inches. It’s way more economical to purchase the 10-inch variant instead of the 12-inch version.

On the other hand, the prices of the 8-inch variant don’t differ significantly from the 10-inch variant at the time of writing. Given the similar prices, it’s much better to go with the slightly thicker variant for better comfort.

Secondly, the 10-inch variant is rated as “firm”, and it provides sufficient firmness to support your body and to relieve pressure points at neck, shoulders and back.

It’s always recommended to start with a firmer mattress, and add a mattress topper if you want a plushier feel. It’s easy to [...]

Environmental Toxins May Contribute to Aging

by AustinNatural @ Austin Natural Mattress

Chronological age is determined by birth date. Biological age is established by physiological and molecular cells within the individual. The latter is influenced by the exposure of damaging substances in the environment, such as chemicals, cigarette smoke, or even stress (gerontogens). Aging occurs when the body goes through a biological mechanism called senescence. During this process, healthy cells become impaired and they lose their ability to divide. Over a period of time, these impaired cells begin to compile, using resources and releasing hormones with inflammatory characteristics. This majorly contributes to aging and age related diseases. Someday, scientists hope that blood...

Going Gray: Gray Hair at 40 (8 Months And Counting)

by thisorganicgirl @ This Organic Girl

There’s no turning back now guys. It’s been 8 months since I stopped dying my hair and I’m like really gray now. I’m also celebrating my 40th birthday this March and if you had asked me 5 years ago if I would be gray by 40, I would have dyed laughing! But here I am, entering my 40s and embracing my gray hair. So here’s the latest. First of all, at 8 months out my hair is SO DRY! I realize now when I was dying my hair every 4 weeks, it wasn’t only adding color, it was adding shine, texture and vibrancy. Now after going cold turkey, the true condition of my hair has been exposed and it’s not cute. My virgin hair is not dry but the chemically treated section is. And not only is it dry, it’s inconsistent in color. Some parts are darker than others and some strands have fully lost their chemical pigment. Every few months I would have my colorist run my color all the way through the ends of my hair during the last 5 mins of treatment to even out my color and avoid this from happening. And now I have nothing […]

Best Memory Foam Mattress Reviews – A Detailed Buying Guide

by Scott @ Dorm Reports

The first memory mattress was unveiled in year 1991 by Fagerdala World Foams, and it was called the Tempur-Pedic Swedish Mattress. Since then, the industry has made tremendous progress, and the best memory foam mattress in the modern era has improved leaps and bounds compared to their predecessors.

Ever since its launch, memory foam mattresses have been well-loved by customers for their incredible ability to reduce pressure points.

A high quality memory foam mattress has the ability to improve one’s sleep quality, alleviate back pain, improve circulation and may even help with certain types of sleeping disorders like sleep apnea.

Memory foam mattresses are rated as some of the most comfortable mattresses due to their body-contouring properties, so you can generally expect a good night’s sleep with a good foam mattress.

However, when it comes to choosing the best memory foam mattress for yourself, the answer is a matter of individual taste. What’s best for us may not be best for you. When it comes to mattresses, there is no one-size-fits-all.

Therefore, when we put together this buying guide, we look at not just individual reviews, as comfort and sleeping preference can be very subjective.

To capture the overall user satisfaction and choose the best memory foam mattress, a more accurate method is to look at hundreds of customer reviews and conduct in-depth research into the materials and technologies used for each mattress to understand what makes them great (or not).

We understand that most buyers do not have time to look into hundreds of mattresses and thousands of reviews, so we have done the homework to find out the best memory foam mattresses that will suit most readers in this guide.

We have also written detailed memory foam mattress reviews for each of our recommendations, feel free to read them up for more details before deciding on your purchase.

Best Memory Foam Mattress: Critical Considerations

 

Buying a mattress is a one of the major purchases you’ll get for your household, so it’s important to consider different aspects and get a best foam mattress for your needs.

Here’s some questions to ask yourself before deciding which is the best memory foam mattress for you and your family:
.

BEST MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS:

Keep in mind that what’s best for one person isn’t necessarily the best for the next. While some users like to get the best bang for their bucks, others prefer to invest a substantial amount of money into their memory foam mattresses to ensure their sleeping quality and its longevity.

We work hard to detail the strengths and weaknesses of each recommendation we make, so look out for the criteria that are important for you when you read through the guide.

Lucid 10″ Latex Mattress Review: For Firm Mattress Lovers

by Scott @ Dorm Reports

VIEW PRODUCT ON AMAZON

The Lucid 10″ Latex Mattress is one of the recommended value-for-money choices if you prefer a firm mattress.

Generally, most sleepers either like their mattress firm (like latex mattresses) or plush (like memory foam mattresses).

While there are multiple other types of mattresses that offer varying firmness in between, these two types are rated the most comfortable by most consumers.

However, the Lucid 10″ latex mattress is considered by most users to be on the firmer side even among latex mattresses. Will you sleep better on a firm mattress compared to a softer one?

That’s what we intend to find out in this review – where we talk about the inner structure of the mattress, its certifications and how do they affect you, as well as what other customers are saying about their purchases to help you make the best buying decision.

 

Lucid 10″ Latex Mattress Review

 

The Lucid 10″ latex mattress is a simple affair – there’s no complicated inner structure, just a good ol’ latex comfort layer on top of a firm HD poly foam core layer.

Of course, you get the buoyancy and fast recovery time of a typical latex mattress, and it does not let you sink too deep into the bed like what you would get with memory foam mattresses.

People either like the sinking feeling or they don’t, so it’s not a good or bad scenario. It all comes down to your personal preference.

With the Lucid 10″ latex mattress, you will get a firm surface that contours and hugs your body a little, but provide great support to pressure points such as your back and your hips if you are a back sleeper.

For side sleepers, your shoulder and hips will produce more pressure, but this will be well-supported by the Lucid mattress as well. The same goes for stomach sleepers that put most pressure on the mid-section of the body.

The mattress is rated medium to medium-firm, so if you prefer a softer and plush bed, you should take a look at Lucid 16″ Memory Foam and Latex Mattress instead.

 

The Lucid 10″ latex mattresses consists of 3″ conforming latex layer and 7″ firm HD polyurethane support foam. Image credit: Lucid

 

Top Layer: 3″ of Dunlop Latex comfort layer. This latex layer offers a resilient feel and conforming support. Compared to the ‘sink’ of memory foam, latex provides a bit more ‘push back.’
.
Bottom Layer: 7″ of HD Poly support foam. This layer provides the support required for body pressure points and keep the mattress solid for long term use.
.
Mattress Cover: Surrounding these 2 layers is a Tencel blend fabric cover. It improves the breathability and natural moisture control of your sleep environment. It also creates a comfortable air layer at the mattress surface that prevents heat retention.
.

As with most latex mattresses, one of the best selling points of the Lucid 10″ latex mattress lies in its superior temperature regulation and cooling capabilities.

Memory foam and plush mattresses may provide more hug and contour, but they can also build up heat quickly due to the [...]

· Removable Cover. The bamboo-derived rayon cover is free from harmful toxins and replaceable for proper care and maintenance.

· Top Layer: New Zealand Wool. A sustainable natural material that wicks away moisture and acts as a natural fire barrier. This layer is also important for surface ventilation and temperature regulation.

· 2nd Layer: 2.5-Inch Gel Memory Foam. A foam technology that relieves pressure points by evenly distributing the body weight and reduces motion transfer. It is ideal for couples that experience sleep disturbances throughout the night. It is also certified safe by CertiPUR-US (more information below).

· 3rd Layer: 2.5-Inch Ventilated Airflow Foam. A layer of foam that allows continuous airflow for cool and pleasant sleep.

· Bottom Layer: 5-Inch Base Foam. This is a solid support base to ensure structural integrity and longevity of the mattress. It also absorbs your weight to dampen motion transfer and to prevent noise.

.

The Cypress mattress is made of gel memory foam technology with bamboo-derived rayon cover aimed at increasing comfort and reducing motion sleep transfer, as well as relieving pressure points such as neck and back.

The 9-inch variant comes with only 3 layers (without Airlux ventilated airflow foam), and is slightly firmer than the rest due to thinner gel memory foam layer.

The thicker variants tend to be plushier and preferred by side sleepers who exert majority of their body weight on a smaller surface.

According to studies by Textile Machine, Bamboo-derived rayon foam covers are characterized by an improved softness which is not only aesthetically preferred, but also exhibit relatively high moisture regained capacity – which means that moisture absorption is higher with up to 13% regain compared to that of cotton with only 7%.

As a result, the rayon foam cover surface [...]

How to assemble your Spindle Mattress at home.

by admin @ spindle

All mattresses will eventually soften, sag or get an imprint from where you've been sleeping. The good news is that latex does it at half the rate of a conventional material. The normal compression in a traditional mattress is an inch and a half to two inches. Your Spindle is warrantied against impressions greater than 3/4". That's a "yuge" difference.

Why we carry Naturepedic Organic Crib Mattresses.

When Does “No Flame Retardants” NOT Actually Mean “No Flame Retardants”? Many commonly used flame retardant chemicals are being connected to health and developmental issues. Want a mattress without flame retardant chemicals? Get one that’s certified organic from your mattress store. Otherwise, flame retardants will probably be in that mattress, even if greenwashing marketing suggests otherwise, and you’re going to need to guess what they are. It’s not easy to find out what flame retardants are in your mattress. Let me explain with a little compare and contrast. We say “Naturepedic mattresses meet all government flammability standards...

Costco Shopping List

So for the new year, one of my mini resolutions is to shop smarter. I didn’t formally make this a goal but it’s something I’ve been meanging to do for a while and with the new year upon us it kind of just hit me like a truck. Just do it already! The resistance comes from doing most of my food shopping at Whole Foods. It’s a lazy man’s approach to food shopping because I know I can get most anything there from specialty items to meats to produce and anything in between without much compromise. Like, I H.A.T.E. the mulit-stop food shop. Nothing gets my goat more than that feeling of wasting time pogoing from one store to the next for organic almond butter here and frozen calui rice there. But one day last year I came out of Whole Foods with three bags of groceries and $300 poorer and I knew I was being had. Create Change Not to mention this type of food shopping is creating and perpetuating an “us/them” rift in this nation. It’s called the people who can afford to buy healthy real food and those who can’t and it’s not right. Access to real […]

Zinus Memory Foam Green Tea Mattress Review

by Scott @ Dorm Reports

VIEW PRODUCT ON AMAZON

Zinus as a company has been around for more than 20 years, and this is often a good indication of the quality of their products, and your warranty will still be valid years after you have purchased your mattress. The Zinus Memory Foam Green Tea mattress is one of their most successful products of all time.

This mattress is currently sitting at the top 3 spots in Amazon as one of the most popular memory foam mattress with a very good rating.

Again, this is a good sign – while certain aspects such as comfort and preference for firmness can be very subjective and different from person to person, we choose to look at hundreds of customers reviews to reach an objective conclusion.

Therefore, in this detailed Zinus Memory Foam Green Tea mattress review, we will put up as much information as possible in one place, and summarize what hundreds of other customers are saying about their purchases to help you make the best buying decision.

 

Zinus Memory Foam Green Tea Mattress Review

 

Zinus offers multiple thickness for their Memory Foam Green Tea mattress series, and they come in following thickness measurements:

6 Inches
8 Inches
10 Inches
12 Inches (most popular choice and highest satisfaction)

 

The 6″ mattress consist of only 2 mattress layers, which provide weaker support and body contouring properties compared to its thicker counterparts. Users have rated the 12″ version as be the most comfortable variant out of the 4 thickness options available.

The illustration below depicts the 12″ variant, which in our opinion provides the best comfort and support if you are not absolutely strapped for cash.

The Zinus Memory Foam Green Tea mattress is made up of 4 layers in a knitted Jacquard cover. (Image credit: Zinus)

 

Top Layer: 3″ of memory foam. This layer provides the plush and body-contouring properties that many users like about memory foam mattresses.
 .
2nd Layer: 2″ of comfort foam. This layer provides a buffer between the memory foam and base foam to allows smooth transition into the higher density base foams. It also provides pressure relief and soothes neck and back pain.
 .
3rd and 4th Layers: 3.5″ of high-density airflow foams respectively. The base support for this mattress is separated into 2 distinct layers to allow for better heat regulation. The design of the base foams facilitate heat transfer to prevent heat trap for the sleeper during the night, which is a concern for most memory foam mattresses.

 

These layers are enclosed in a knitted Jacquard cover that features a smooth surface. The zip-cover is breathable and easy to clean.

The Zinus Memory Foam Green Tea mattress is constructed with memory foam that is 3lbs dense, and this is true for any thickness that you choose. The density of a mattress generally correlates to the longevity of a mattress, as denser mattresses tend to last longer.

On average, lower density (2 to 5.4 lbs/ft) mattresses remain supportive and comfortable for about 6 to 7 years, while higher density mattresses maintain their structural integrity for around 8 years.

With that said, the longevity for [...]

Signature Sleep Memoir Memory Foam Mattress Review

by Scott @ Dorm Reports

VIEW PRODUCT ON AMAZON

Signature Sleep has a few highly rated product lines in their arsenal, and Signature Sleep Memoir Memory Foam mattress is their representative for the memory foam category.

Just like the Zinus Memory Foam Green Tea mattress, this Signature Sleep model is one of the most affordable memory foam mattresses out there, so we’ll draw some comparison to Zinus within this review.

Even though Signature Sleep is not as established as Zinus as a company, can their memory foam mattress best their direct competitor in the cheap memory foam mattress category?

In this detailed Signature Sleep Memoir Memory Foam mattress review, we will put up as much information as possible in one place, and summarize what hundreds of other customers are saying about their purchases to help you make the best buying decision.

 

Signature Sleep Memoir Memory Foam Mattress Review

 

Signature Sleep Memoir Memory Foam mattress line-up comes with 4 different thickness levels, which is identical to the Zinus line-up:

6 inches
8 inches
10 inches
12 inches (most popular choice and highest satisfaction)

 

Similar to the Zinus memory foam mattress, most users have purchased the 12 inches variant and reported higher satisfaction in terms of comfort and body support.

This can be partly attributed to the thicker top memory foam comfort layer, which protects the sleeper from sinking too deep and bottom out on the firm core layer.

The illustration below shows the 12″ variant, and we’ll provide a table below to show the inner layers and their thickness for other variants of the same mattress.

Signature Sleep Memoir Memory Foam consists of a memory foam and a HD base foam

 

Top Layer: 4″ of memory foam. This layer provides the body-contouring properties that many users like about memory foam mattresses.
 .
Bottom Layer: 8″ of high density base foam. This is the core support layer for the mattress, and it is there to keep the structural integrity of the mattress over a long period of time. It also provides support to the sleeper’s body throughout the night.
 .

These 2 layers are encased in a breathable knit fabric that is easy to clean. Just like the Zinus mattress cover, it features a smooth surface and offers breathability so heat doesn’t build up around the sleeper during the night.

The layers for Signature Sleep mattress vs Zinus mattress are compared below:

Mattress ThicknessSignature SleepZinus

6 Inchesi. 1" Memory Foam
ii. 5" HD Base Foami. 1.5" Memory Foam
ii. 4.5" HD Base Foam

8 Inchesi. 2" Memory Foam
ii. 6" HD Base Foami. 2" Memory Foam
ii. 2" Comfort Foam
iii. 4" HD Base Foam

10 Inchesi. 2" Memory Foam

iii. 5" HD Base Foam

12 Inchesi. 4" Memory Foam
ii. 8" HD Base Foami. 3" Memory Foam
ii. 3" Comfort Foam
iii. 6" HD Base Foam

 

As you can see, the main difference between the Signature Sleep memory foam mattress and its direct competitor lies in the inclusion of a comfort layer, which is present in Zinus but absent in Signature sleep.

As a result, they exhibit different firmness levels. Zinus is softer and is rated as medium in terms of [...]
