Naturepedic Organic Mattress Review

Naturepedic is one of the leading companies for organic mattresses and bedding. When I first started this website, I wanted a national organic mattress retailer to recommend to my readers. I asked around, and people kept telling me to look at Naturepedic. However, they did not do national delivery at the time. Since my readers come from all over, I needed an organic company that could deliver anywhere. Naturepedic was only found in smaller boutiques back then and you could not buy them online.

I had some opportunities to try other “all organic” mattresses to review for my website, but none of them were good enough for me to feel comfortable recommending to my readers.

Naturepedic finally opened their own retail shops and started selling nationwide recently, so I am now able to review them. I spent hours in my local Naturepedic store and tried out every mattress there that they deliver nationwide.

Naturepedic

(The stores didn’t quite look like this)

In this review, I will look at the construction of several of their models and compare them, discuss how they feel, and compare the prices between them.

Naturepedic

All of Naturepedic’s mattresses are completely organic. The latex they use is all GOLS certified, the textiles they use are GOTS certified, and so on. When I was there, they showed me a whole book of all the certifications they had. If you want to be sure that your mattress is free from any harmful materials, Naturepedic is a safe choice.

These are just some of Naturepedic’s organic certifications

That said, like most organic products, you have to pay a little more for Naturepedic than you would a non-organic mattress. On the other hand, compared to other organic mattresses, Naturepedic is very affordable.

EOS Series

The EOS series is the “flagship” line of Naturepedic. The most impressive thing about this lineup is its ability to be customized. When you order an EOS mattress, not only do you get to customize the firmness, but you also get to customize each side of the mattress individually.

All of the EOS Series mattresses come with 20 year warranties. The first 10 years of the warranty is full replacement, and it’s prorated in years 11-20. This only covers defects, not comfort, but based on the quality of the materials used, it should stay comfortable for most of its warranty life.

There are 3 lineups in the EOS series: the Classic, the Pillowtop, and the Trilux.

Naturepedic EOS

The Naturepedic EOS Classic

EOS Classic

The EOS classic is an innerspring mattress. You have your choice of plush or firm coils in the support layer, and you can choose different ones for each side of the mattress. So if you like a firmer mattress and your partner likes a softer mattress, you can do a “split” feel.

Additionally, there are 5 options for the top. You can get plush, medium, or firm latex or you can get medium or soft “microcoils,” (which are small metal coils). Like the support coils, you can get a different top option on each side of the bed.

They are grouped into 4 firmness levels when you buy online:

  • Extra firm: uses firm coils and firm latex (there is no extra firm option that uses the microcoils)
  • Firm: uses firm coils and medium latex or medium microcoils
  • Cushion Firm: uses firm coils and soft latex or soft microcoils
  • Plush: uses plush coils and soft latex or soft microcoils

None of the options are so soft that they aren’t supportive. Even if you get plush coils with plush foam on top, it’s still what I would consider a “medium” firmness. If you want an extra-soft mattress, you’d need to get the pillowtop version (which is the next section).

My recommendations:

If you’re heavier than average, get one with firm coils. Otherwise, go with the plush coils.

If you’re a back sleeper or stomach sleeper, or you just prefer a harder mattress, get one with a firm top. Otherwise, go with a plush top.

If you prefer a softer mattress, consider one of the pillowtops in the next section.

Price

The EOS Classic runs from $1799 in a twin size to $3599 in a king size for the mattress. The most common size, queen, is $2999.  If you need a boxspring (i.e. you don’t have a platform bed or adjustable base), they sell an organic boxspring for $599 in a queen.

EOS Pillowtop

Naturepedic EOS Pillowtop

The Naturepedic pillowtop adds an extra 3″ layer

If you like a softer mattress or are a side sleeper, the EOS Pillowtop might be more to your liking. It adds an extra 3″ layer on top of the EOS Classic version above, but otherwise uses the same materials.

On the website, it also comes in 4 configurations.

  • Firm: uses firm coils, firm latex, and medium latex on top (There is no microcoil version)
  • Cushion Firm: uses firm coils, medium latex, and soft latex on top or medium microcoils with soft microcoils on top
  • Plush: uses plush coils, medium latex, and soft latex on top or medium microcoils with soft microcoils on top
  • Ultra Plush: uses plush coils and two layers of soft latex or two layers of soft microcoils

My recommendations:

If you like a really firm mattress, you’re probably better off getting the non-pillowtop version.

The pillowtops are best for side-sleepers, since it has extra padding for your shoulders and hips to float into without hitting the harder coil system underneath.

If you’re a heavier person, get the Firm or Cushion Firm. Average weight people should get the Cushion Firm or Plush, and thinner people should get the Plush or Ultra Plush.

Price

The Pillowtops run from $2499 in a twin to $4799 in a king. The Queen is $3,999 for just the mattress. As above, a boxspring will run you an additional $599 in a queen.

EOS Trilux

Naturepedic Trilux

The Trilux uses 3 layers of latex

The EOS Trilux is an all-latex model. (Read more about latex mattresses here). The latex layers are covered in a protective layer of cotton and they use the same types of organic cotton and latex that the rest of the EOS series does. The coils found in the EOS Classic get replaced by two layers of latex in the Trilux.

It comes in 4 different firmnesses, in which the 3 types of latex (firm, medium, and soft) are layered differently. You can see exactly which layer is which when you “build” the mattress on their website.

My recommendation:

All of the latex models will be supportive. Even the softest ones are still very firm underneath. If you’re a side sleeper, get one with softer layers on the top. Otherwise, it comes down to personal preference about how soft or firm of a mattress you like.

Price

The Trilux is in between the prices of the EOS Classic and Pillowtop. It ranges from $2099 to $4199, with a queen being $3499. As before, this doesn’t include the organic boxspring at $599.

Essentials

Naturepedic boxes

Naturepedic is delivered in boxes. Everything is designed to expand to its normal shape almost instantly.

The “Essentials” line is very similar to the EOS Classic. It’s not as customizable as the EOS Classic (you can’t order split sides), and the cover is different, and it only has a 10 year warranty as opposed to the 20 years you get from the EOS, but the inside layers are the same. You get the same 8″ coil system and 3″ latex layer as you do in the EOS Classic, and each layer comes in different firmnesses.

They have grouped them into 5 firmnesses: Extra Firm, Firm, Cushion Firm, Medium, and Plush.

If you don’t plan on getting the “split” feel where one side of the bed has a different firmness from the other, consider getting the Essentials instead. It will save you some money, and you’re sacrificing very little to get it.

Price

The Essentials line ranges from $1599 – $3199, which is $200-$400 cheaper than the EOS Classic depending on the size. If an extra $400 means anything to you, and you don’t plan on taking advantage of the split feel feature in the EOS Classic, I’d recommend getting the Essential line instead.

On the other hand, if $400 won’t make a difference to you, or you think you’d like the split feel option, get the EOS Classic instead.

Chorus

Naturepedic Chorus

The Chorus is a bit more basic. It’s a great mattress for a guest room or if you’re on a budget.

The Chorus is the entry-level model for the “adult” mattresses. It uses the same firm coil system that the firmer EOS Classics and Essentials use, but then only uses a 1.5 inch microcoil layer.

The end result is a firmer mattress in which you’re closer to the firm support layer. If you like a firm mattress, this might be fine, but if you can afford better, I’d recommend the EOS Classic instead. On the other hand, if this is just for a guest room or temporary use, or a college student, it might be a perfect option.

The Chorus is $1999 in a queen.

Luxury Series

The Luxury series is not available online, and therefore you have to go into a local Naturepedic store to try them out and order them. Because of this, I did not spend much time trying out the Luxury series. Click here for Naturepedic’s store locator.

Accessories

Naturepedic has a line of organic accessories to go along with their mattresses.

Naturepedic Trio Pillow

The Trio pillow is the one I carried around the store with me

Organic pillows

Naturepedic has several models of organic pillows. My favorite was the Trio organic pillow. It uses wool and shredded latex with a cotton cover. As it comes, it’s great for a side sleeper since it’s fairly high profile, but it has a zipper and you can remove some filling to make it a lower profile if you’re a back or stomach sleeper.

They also have pillows made of such materials as pla fiber and kapok, which I am very unfamiliar with, but from what I understand they are all organic materials.

Organic mattress protector

Naturepedic also sells organic mattress pads and mattress protectors. A mattress protector will help extend the life of the mattress as it protects against things like sweat and other liquids that can break down the foams and fibers in the mattress over time. If you’re investing this much in a high-end mattress, it makes sense to protect it.

Other products

Naturepedic baby bedding

Naturepedic sells all sorts of baby bedding

There are other products on their website which I didn’t have an opportunity to review. For example, I’m told that their crib mattresses are very popular, but I know very little about crib mattresses. They have a whole lineup of organic baby stuff that I just don’t know enough about. Browse around their site and see if there’s anything else that interests you.

Conclusion

Naturepedic is the go-to national retailer for organic mattresses. They’re high quality yet reasonably priced compared to some organic mattress companies. I’ve been searching for years for an organic mattress company that I feel comfortable recommending to my readers, and now that Naturepedic delivers nationwide, I’ve finally found one.
