Nolah Natural Mattress Review: An Affordable Latex Mattress for Eco-Conscious Shoppers

By Rachael Harris

Is the Nolah Natural Mattress for You?

Who’s Going to Love the Nolah Natural

  • Back sleepers
  • Lightweight (< 130 lbs) stomach sleepers
  • Those who move around a lot at night 
  • Hot sleepers
  • Shoppers looking for a natural or organic mattress

Who Should Steer Clear

  • Side sleepers—instead, go with a mattress that offers great pressure relief, like the original Nectar mattress.
  • Average-weight (130–230 lbs) or heavyweight (> 230 lbs) stomach sleepers—instead, the Saatva Latex Hybrid is a firmer mattress that stays supportive under more weight.
  • Those who like the conforming feel of memory foam—instead, the Zenhaven is a memory foam mattress by the naturally minded bedding company Saatva.

Nolah Natural Mattress Firmness and Feel 

Nolah Natural Mattress Firmness

The Nolah Natural has a balanced, medium-firm feel that we place around 6/10 on our 1–10 firmness scale (with 10 being the most firm). We call this the “universal” firmness level, since it’s compatible with the broadest range of body types and sleeping positions

With that said, lightweight sleepers may consider the Natural to be a touch firmer, since they won’t sink as far into the softer top layers, while heavier sleepers may experience the Natural as softer.

What Does the Nolah Natural Feel Like?

When lying down on the Nolah Natural, there’s some cushioning under my lower back and shoulders, but I notice less sinkage when I turn to my side. The softest layer of the mattress is only 2” deep, so I quickly feel the firm support of the coils at the base of the bed. Overall, I’d describe this bed as bouncy, supportive, and offering moderate pressure relief.

Support and Pressure Relief by Sleeping Position

Back Sleepers

Of all the sleeping positions, the Nolah Natural is the best mattress for back sleepers—regardless of your body type (lightweight, average-weight, or heavyweight). There’s enough softness from the latex for the bed to cushion your shoulders, lower back, and hips, but you stay lifted on top of the mattress, which maintains spinal alignment.

Stomach Sleepers

The Natural’s firmer feel works well for lightweight stomach sleepers, since it keeps their hips lifted in alignment with their shoulders. Our average-weight and heavyweight testers noticed their hips dipping a bit on the Natural, so it’s not a great fit for this sleeping position. For better options, see the best mattresses for stomach sleepers.

Side Sleepers

The Nolah Natural is not our favorite mattress for side sleepers because we noticed pressure buildup near our testers’ shoulders. This is especially true for lightweight side sleepers, since they won’t sink as far into the softer top layers of the mattress. 

As an average-weight side sleeper, I’d like to see more contouring around my shoulders, so I wouldn’t want to spend more than half of the night in this sleeping position. The same is true for heavyweight side sleepers.

Combination Sleepers

The best mattresses for combination sleepers work for a wide variety of sleeping positions and are easy to move around on. It’s very easy for sleepers of all body types to change positions on the Nolah Natural, but it works best for combo sleepers who favor their back and stomach.

NERD RATING: Will this bed work for you?

Body Type: BACK SLEEPERS STOMACH SLEEPERS SIDE SLEEPERS
Lightweight (< 130 lbs):  5 4 2
Average weight (130–230 lbs): 5 3 3
Heavyweight (> 230 lbs):  4 2 3

1 = Very poor, 2 = Not good, 3 = Fair, 4 = Good, 5 = Excellent

Nolah Natural Mattress Performance

Is The Nolah Natural Mattress Cooling? 

On paper, the Nolah Natural is one of the best cooling mattresses since aerated latex doesn’t retain much body heat and coils are incredibly breathable; however, we did notice a little heat retention in the cotton and wool mattress cover, which is why we rated the Natural 4/5 for temperature instead of a perfect 5/5.

Edge Support 

The edges of the Natural hold up well under weight and pressure. We noticed a little sinkage when sitting on the side of the mattress, but not while lying down, so you should feel secure spreading out or using the edges of the bed to get ready in the morning.

Responsiveness

Since latex is a naturally buoyant material and coils have a lot of bounce, the Nolah Natural is very easy to move around on. This is important for combination sleepers who move from one position to another while they sleep.

Motion Isolation: Is it good for those who share a bed?

Latex and coils don’t absorb a whole lot of motion, so the Natural will allow some motion transfer. This is important for couples or anyone who shares their bed, since feeling movement from across the mattress can be disruptive to your sleep. For beds with better motion isolation, see the best mattresses for couples.

Noise

We didn’t notice any excessive noise when testing the Natural. Any sound came from our bed frame.

Pain Relief

Medium-firm to firm mattresses are generally a good fit for those with back pain. That’s true for the Nolah Natural with regards to back sleepers, but only for lightweight stomach sleepers. Average-weight or heavyweight stomach sleepers will need a firm mattress to keep their spine aligned and prevent lower back pain. Side sleepers with shoulder or hip pain should look for a mattress that offers more cushion around pressure points.

Sex

We definitely consider the Natural to be a good mattress for sex. It’s bouncy, quickly responds to changes in position, doesn’t retain body heat, and is relatively quiet for a mattress with coils.

Off-Gassing

The Natural doesn’t have the chemical off-gassing odor we sometimes experience when unboxing foam mattresses, but it does have a slightly sweet smell—probably from the organic wool in the mattress cover. The scent is non-toxic and should diminish with time.

Durability

Latex is one of the most durable mattress materials available, and when paired with steel coils, the Nolah Natural should last you at least eight years, possibly a whole decade. It’s warranted for the entire lifetime of the original owner (assuming the original owner is still in possession of the mattress).

Nolah Natural Mattress Construction: What’s it made of?

The Nolah Natural is made with 3” of natural latex on top and a support layer of individually wrapped coils. The feel is more supportive than cushioning, though there is enough sinkage for the mattress to be considered medium-firm, not firm. Heavier folks will likely sink deeper into the mattress and may experience more cushioning.

Layer #1: Organic Cotton Cover

The Nolah Natural is wrapped in an organic cotton cover (GOTS certification) that’s soft and breathable. Directly beneath the cover, a layer of organic wool acts as a fire retardant and also wicks away sweat. The bottom of the cover is extra durable, and the sides include handles to make repositioning the mattress easier.

Layer #2: Talalay Latex Comfort Layer (2”)

The top layer of latex has a medium firmness level that’s soft, yet dense. It’s processed using the Talalay method, which essentially means that it’s more cushioning than synthetically made latex or latex processed using the Dunlop method.

Layer #3: Talalay Latex Transition Layer (1”)

A shorter, slightly firmer latex layer keeps you from feeling the coils below.

Layer #4: Coil Support Layer (8”)

A thick layer of individually-wrapped coils is divided into three zones—firmer and more supportive near the lower back and softer and more pressure-relieving near the shoulders and knees. This is also the layer that gives the mattress its bounce and the bulk of its support.

Layer #5: Organic Cotton & Wool Base Layer

Another layer of cotton and wool acts as a supportive base for the rest of the mattress, especially the coils.

How Much Does the Nolah Natural Mattress Cost?

Mattress Size Price Dimensions Height Weight
Twin $1,499 38” x 75” 11” 68 lbs
Twin XL $1,599 38” x 80” 11” 73 lbs
Full $1,699 54” x 75” 11” 91 lbs
Queen $1,799 60” x 80” 11” 108 lbs
King $2,099 76” x 80” 11” 135 lbs
California King $2,099 72” x 84” 11” 134 lbs

 

How Do the Policies Measure Up? 

Shipping & Unboxing

Nolah ships their mattresses for free within the contiguous U.S. Currently, they don’t offer shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, or Canada. The mattress is delivered to your doorstep compressed and rolled in a box.

It’s pretty heavy, so you’ll want the help of a friend to set it up. It took us one minute 36 seconds to unbox and set up on our bed frame. You can also store it on a sturdy box spring or adjustable base.

Warranty

The standard mattress warranty is around 10 years, but Nolah protects their mattresses with a Lifetime warranty for the original owner. If your mattress develops defects (ex: permanent indentations over 1”), you may be eligible for a replacement mattress or free repairs. Nolah doesn’t cover accidents like tears or spilled liquids, so consider using a mattress protector

The warranty is prorated with the following periods of coverage:

  • 0–2 years: Free replacement or repairs
  • 3–10 years: Mattress will be repaired and recovered for $99 transportation cost both ways  
  • 11–25 years: You pay 50 percent of the original cost for a replacement mattress
  • 26+ years: You pay 60 percent of the original cost for a replacement mattress

Nolah also offers a “Don’t Lose Sleep” option, which enables you to keep your original mattress and buy a new mattress after year two of ownership for 50–80 percent of the original cost. 

Trial Period & Returns

Online mattress companies offer at-home trial periods so you can decide if their mattress is the right fit after actually sleeping on it. The industry standard sleep trial is 100 nights, but Nolah gives you 120 nights.

If you aren’t happy with the mattress during this time, you can exchange it or return it for a full refund as long as you’ve given it a try for at least 30 nights. Nolah charges $99 for returns to cover the cost of picking up your used mattress.

Addressing Nolah Natural Mattress Complaints

Too Firm

A couple of customers complained that the Nolah Natural was too firm for comfort; they expected it to be a softer mattress. We consider the Natural to be medium-firm, though it may feel firmer to those with lightweight body types, since they won’t sink as far into the comfort layer of latex. If you’re still uncomfortable sleeping on the Natural after a couple of weeks, you can return it during the trial period.

Causes Shoulder Pain

Some people mentioned developing shoulder pain when sleeping on the Nolah Natural mattress. If you’re a side sleeper, you may notice pressure buildup near your shoulders since the Natural doesn’t offer very deep sinkage around wider curves. As such, we don’t recommend it to strict side sleepers, though sleepers over 130 lbs who spend only part of the night on their sides should be OK if they don’t have preexisting shoulder pain.

Comparing Different Nolah Mattresses

Nolah Natural vs. Nolah Original 10”

The Nolah original mattress is similar to a traditional memory foam mattress, but it’s made with a proprietary foam (AirFoam) that’s springier than memory foam. Instead of an organic cotton and wool cover, it has a breathable TENCEL cover. 

The original Nolah has a more conforming feel than the Natural, and its high-density foam base layer does a better job of isolating motion than the Natural’s innerspring coil base.

Side sleepers should go with the original Nolah, while hot sleepers should stick with the Natural. Back and stomach sleepers could go either way. The Nolah is lower cost, but both beds come with Nolah’s 120-night trial period and Lifetime warranty.

Nolah Original 10" Mattress

The Nolah Original 10” mattress is made of three layers of AirFoam and wrapped in a soft, breathable viscose fabric cover that helps moisture evaporate to keep you dry and cool.

Nolah Natural vs. Nolah Signature 12”

The Nolah Signature used to be a flippable foam bed, but now it’s one-sided with a medium-firmness. We recommend it to back sleepers, lightweight stomach sleepers, and combination sleepers. The Signature is made with Nolah AirFoam, a high-resilience foam transition layer, and a dense foam base layer.

Those concerned about overheating should stick with the Nolah Natural, since it’s construction allows for much better airflow. The Natural is more expensive by a few hundred dollars, and comes with the same 120-night trial period and Lifetime warranty as the Signature.

Nolah Signature 12" Mattress

Nolah Natural vs. Nolah Evolution 15”

The Nolah Evolution 15” mattress pairs foam layers with a coil support layer. Nolah calls the Evolution their best bed for spinal alignment, and we agree. It also offers better contouring around pressure points than the Natural, so it’s the better option for side sleepers. Stomach and back sleepers could go with either mattress and should base their choice on their preferred materials and feel.

The Evolution is pricier than the Natural, since it incorporates luxury cooling technologies and an impressive 15” height. Both mattresses come with Nolah’s 120-night trial period and Lifetime warranty.

Nolah Evolution Hybrid Mattress

The Nolah Evolution 15" mattress is a robust hybrid bed that's a bit softer than the average mattress: great for back sleepers and side sleepers. The individually wrapped coils include zoned support, which helps promote adequate spinal alignment.

Comparing Nolah to the Competition

Nolah Natural vs. GhostBed Natural

The GhostBed Natural is another medium-firm mattress made of latex, coils, wool, and organic cotton. The GhostBed has only a 2” comfort layer of latex, compared with 3” in the Nolah, but the GhostBed provides better pressure relief and is the better choice for side sleepers. Both beds work equally well for back and stomach sleepers.

The GhostBed costs a little more than the Nolah, but a Queen size in either bed stays under $2,000, especially with seasonal discounts. Nolah offers a longer sleep trial and warranty period, but GhostBed still offers a 101-night sleep trial and generous 25-year warranty.

Nolah Natural vs. Birch

The Birch is a latex hybrid mattress by online mattress company Helix Sleep. It has a similar construction to the Nolah Natural, though there are thicker layers of organic wool at the top of the Birch mattress. Both beds are medium-firm, with the Birch offering a slightly firmer feel than the Nolah.

Pricewise, they are similar after seasonal discounts, though the Birch has a 100-night trial period (compared with Nolah’s 120 night trial period) and 25-year warranty instead of a Lifetime warranty like the Nolah. Both mattresses work best for back and stomach sleepers, though side sleepers can add a plush mattress topper to the Birch for an added cost.

Birch Mattress

The Birch mattress is made for those who want a premium, all-natural bed with an affordable price tag. A medium-firm hybrid mattress, the Birch uses Organic cotton, wool and natural latex to create a sleep surface for eco-conscious consumers.

Nolah Natural vs. Saatva Latex Hybrid

The Saatva Latex Hybrid mattress has a similar construction to the Nolah Natural, including an organic cotton and wool cover, a 3” latex comfort layer, and a pocketed coil base layer. The biggest difference is that the Saatva incorporates luxury touches, like a hand-tufted pillow top, botanical antimicrobial treatment, and free white glove delivery. It also costs more than the Nolah.

Both beds accommodate similar types of sleepers. They’re best for back and stomach sleepers, but can work for folks who spend only part of the night on sides. The Saatva is firmer than the Nolah, so it’s even better for those who like to feel “on top” of their bed.

Saatva Latex Hybrid Mattress

The Saatva Latex Hybrid is a luxury mattress with a nice balance of comfort and support. It's made with natural latex, organic cotton and wool, and pocketed coils. We recommend it to back or stomach sleepers and those prone to overheating at night.

Nolah Natural Mattress FAQs

Are Nolah mattresses any good?

Nolah is one of the more affordable bed-in-a-box mattress companies, and they offer a mattress for every kind of sleeper. The original Nolah mattress is a good entry-level all-foam mattress that’s made with Nolah’s exclusive AirFoam. The Nolah Signature and Evolution mattresses are luxury upgrades with added cushioning and cooling.

Is the Nolah mattress non-toxic?

Nolah mattresses are made with CertiPUR-US certified foams, meaning they pass tests ensuring they have low emissions and are made without toxic chemicals. Instead of a chemical fire retardant, Nolah uses a woven silica sock. The Nolah Natural mattress is made with organic cotton and wool and natural Talalay latex.

What’s the healthiest kind of mattress?

Shoppers looking for natural mattresses typically go with beds made of natural latex and organic materials. A few of our favorite natural beds include the Saatva Latex Hybrid, the Awara, the Birch, the Brooklyn Bedding EcoSleep, the Avocado Green, the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss, and the GhostBed Natural.

The Nerd’s Take: What’s the Bottom Line?

The Nolah Natural is a latex mattress that’s supported by bouncy, breathable coils. This bed is a great fit for those who frequently change positions at night, since it’s so easy to move around on, but it does allow some motion transfer, which couples should be mindful of.

The Natural will retain a little body heat near the surface of the mattress, but overall should stay temperature neutral. Back sleepers of any body type should get a good night sleep on the Natural, as well as lightweight stomach sleepers and heavier side sleepers

With seasonal discounts, it’s one of the most affordable natural latex mattresses on the market; plus, it comes with a 120-night trial period and Lifetime warranty for the original owner.
