Avocado vs. WinkBed Mattress Comparison

There aren’t many hybrid mattresses as different as the Avocado and WinkBed. Find out what sets them apart and which is better for you.

Comparing WinkBeds Mattress & Avocado Mattress

The WinkBed is a luxury hybrid mattress that pairs an opulent Euro pillow top with supportive coils. The Avocado Green is an eco-friendly hybrid with all-natural latex and pocketed innerspring coils. The WinkBed’s multiple firmness options make it better mattress for side sleepers and soft mattress lovers, and it also delivers superior motion isolation for couples. The Avocado Green mattress is cooler and more responsive than the WinkBed

In our WinkBeds vs. Avocado comparison, we delve into the construction, price point, and similarities and differences between the original WinkBed and Avocado Green mattresses. By the end, you will know which has the features that matter most to you.

Differences

  • Traditional vs. eco-friendly materials: The Avocado Green’s comfort layers are crafted from all-natural materials, including latex, cotton, and wool. WinkBed utilizes more traditional materials, such as synthetic foam layers
  • How they feel: The WinkBed has a more traditional feel with foams that bring ample cushioning and pocketed coils for support. The Avocado has a springier feel with a firm contouring that has you feel like you’re floating on the surface.
  • Best sleeping positions: Because the WinkBed offers four firmness options, it supports every sleeping position. The Avocado is firmer and is better mattress for stomach sleepers and back sleepers than side sleepers.

Similarities

  • A good fit for heavy people: The Avocado and plus WinkBed model bring the support and durability required by bigger bodies. Both utilize strong steel coils and sag-resistant latex so that people who weigh over 230 pounds receive proper support. For more recommendations, see our best mattresses for heavy people.
  • Support healthy spinal alignment: WinkBeds and Avocado engineered their beds with ergonomic zones. The lumbar region boasts extra support to limit sagging, and softer foams at the shoulders and feet bring proper alignment from head to toe.
  • Sustain cool sleep: Many people get overly hot during the night. Both the WinkBed and Avocado beds have materials that promote ample airflow so that hot sleepers can sleep more comfortably.

Who the WinkBeds Mattress is Best For 

Best For…

  • Side sleepers: The softest version of the WinkBed has a plush, cloud-like top layer that cushions pressure points like the shoulders and hips. This is the firmness level that many side sleepers, especially lightweight people, prefer. 
  • Couples who sleep together: The WinkBed’s foam layers minimize motion transfer, while the very slight bounce from the coils makes the surface suitable for adult activities. This is a good balance for couples who share a bed. 
  • People with aches and pains: The WinkBed has ergonomic zones that support the lower back and cushion the hips and shoulders. And with its four firmness levels, it fits the needs of most sleepers. Combined, this may help ease joint and back pain

May Not be Best For…

  • People who like a bouncy mattress: Because the WinkBed has thick layers of foam above the innerspring coils system, it does not have the bouncy feel that you’ll find in some hybrid and innerspring mattresses
  • Memory foam shoppers: The WinkBed’s Euro pillow top is quite luxurious, but it does not have the body cradling hug that memory foam does.
  • Budget shoppers: The WinkBed is a luxury mattress with pricing to match. At $1,599 for a Queen-size bed, you can find more affordable hybrids—although they may not have the same high-quality construction.

Who the Avocado Mattress is Best For 

Best For…

  • People with back pain: The Avocado’s ergonomic zones and latex foam top layer offer some of the best back support for both stomach and back sleepers. The firm, gently contouring surface may help to ease back pain for some people.  If you suffer from back pain, see the best mattresses for back pain.
  • Eco-conscious shoppers: The Avocado Green is made from mostly organic, natural materials. It is one of the best organic mattresses, for people who want a non-toxic and environmentally friendly bed. 
  • People who sleep hot: Every layer of the Avocado Green is naturally breathable. Its all-natural construction promotes proper temperature regulation, which can help hot sleepers stay cool and dry. 

May Not be Best For…

  • Side sleepers: The Avocado is a medium-firm to firm mattress with a top layer that delivers very little cushioning. It does not give at the hips and shoulders in the way that most side sleepers prefer. 
  • Soft mattress fans: Even with the optional pillow top mattress topper, the Avocado Green does not have the soft cushioning that some people seek. 
  • Sensitive sleepers who share the bed: The Avocado is a very bouncy mattress. While the responsiveness of the innerspring coils and latex are great for ease-of-movement, it also means you may feel when your partner moves around.

Deciding Between WinkBeds & Avocado

Firmness / Feel

The firmness and feel of the Avocado Green and WinkBed mattresses are remarkably different. The Avocado Green comes in two firmness levels. The base model is a firm mattress, rating at a 7/10 on the 1–10 firmness scale, with 10 being the firmest. When you opt for the pillow top, the feel is somewhat softer and falls at a 6/10. 

The WinkBed comes in four different models that vary in firmness and construction. The softer, luxury-firm, and firmer versions are all traditional hybrid mattresses that pair polyfoam with innerspring coils. The plus model is the firmest WinkBed and is designed for heavyweight people. Its materials are slightly different, with firmer foams and the addition of a latex layer that makes it cooler, more supportive, and easier to move around upon than the other models.

Here is where each WinkBed model falls on the 1–10 firmness scale.

  • Softer: 4.5/10
  • Luxury-firm: 6.5/10
  • Firmer: 7.5/10
  • Plus: 8/10

Both Avocado Green mattresses have a feel that’s more akin to floating “on” the surface than sinking into it. In comparison, every WinkBed mattress has a Euro pillow top made from foam that brings greater pressure relief than the Avocado beds. 

The WinkBed’s softer feel is better for side sleepers and most lightweight people. Both mattresses have the balanced support that stomach and back sleepers need. They are also both well-suited for people who weigh over 130 pounds. 

WinkBeds Performance By Sleeping Position:
Body Type: BACK SLEEPERS STOMACH SLEEPERS SIDE SLEEPERS
Lightweight (< 130 lbs):  4 4 3
Average weight (130 – 230 lbs): 5 4 4
Heavyweight (> 230 lbs):  4 3 3
Avocado Performance By Sleeping Position:
Body Type: BACK SLEEPERS STOMACH SLEEPERS SIDE SLEEPERS
Lightweight (< 130 lbs):  3 2 2
Average weight (130 – 230 lbs): 5 4 3
Heavyweight (> 230 lbs):  5 4 4

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

Motion Isolation

The WinkBed’s polyfoam layers dampen motion transfer, a feature that helps couples sleep together without waking one another during the night. The Avocado is a much bouncier mattress. Without any motion-absorbing foams, we do not recommend the Avocado to couples who sleep together—especially if one person moves around a lot or if either partner is a light sleeper. 

Edge Support

The Avocado has sturdier edges than the WinkBed mattress. The Avocado’s latex foam top layer doesn’t sag much when pressure is applied, so you won’t feel like you might roll off of the edges if you lie or sit along them. The WinkBed has above-average edge support, but heavier folks may prefer the added stability of the Avocado’s perimeter if they happen to use the edges when getting into bed or if they regularly sit along the edges.

Pressure Relief 

The WinkBed’s polyfoam comfort system gives more than the Avocado’s Dunlop latex. Every WinkBed model is more pressure-relieving than the Avocado, with the softer version particularly good at cushioning pressure points and joints. Side sleepers and elderly people are likely to prefer the WinkBed thanks to its greater cushion and pressure relief

Spine Alignment 

There’s no single mattress that provides excellent spinal alignment for everyone. Side sleepers and lightweight people typically require softer mattresses than back sleepers, stomach sleepers, and heavier folks. 

The Avocado Green bed delivers good alignment for most back and stomach sleepers. The latex top layer is supportive with just a touch of contouring, with ergonomically zoned coils underneath. Back sleepers receive support that keeps the spine in its natural shape, while stomach sleepers are unlikely to experience too much sagging at the hips. 

Most side sleepers and people under 130 pounds find the Avocado too firm for optimal back comfort. The softer WinkBed model is likely to be better for side sleepers than the firmer WinkBeds versions or the Avocado. The WinkBed luxury-firm and firmer models are both good options for back and stomach sleepers as they have zoned support that’s paired with a bit of softness. For more mattresses that provide great spinal alignment, see the best mattresses for back sleepers.

Plus-size people find that mattresses feel softer to them, so a firmer mattress like the Avocado or WinkBed Plus tend to bring the best spinal support.

Durability 

The Avocado is likely to last longer than the WinkBed mattress. Its comfort layer is crafted from natural Dunlop latex, a material known for its resilience and resistance to body impressions. The WinkBed’s polyfoam Euro top is more likely to form indentations over time, and it’s more prone to becoming softer over the years. We expect the WinkBed to last around seven to 10 years, and the Avocado 10 years or longer. 

Temperature 

One of the biggest mattress complaints that we hear at Mattress Nerd is that many beds sleep too hot. Over the night, our bodies naturally change temperature, with a decrease in temperature necessary for deep, restorative sleep. When beds absorb our body heat and feed it back to us, it can cause us to wake up, kicking the covers off to regain comfort. 

Hybrid mattresses like the WinkBed and Avocado sleep cooler than most all-foam beds thanks to the breathability of innerspring coils. However, the Avocado sleeps even cooler than the WinkBed. The Avocado’s latex foam doesn’t hold onto heat to the same degree that the polyfoam layers of the WinkBed do. Additionally, Avocado has a layer of moisture-wicking wool that helps keep the body temperature where it ought to be all night long. If you are a hot sleeper, see the best cooling mattresses.

The WinkBed is a luxury hybrid mattress with thicker comfort layers than your average hybrid bed. It comes in four firmness options—softer, luxury firm, firmer, and plus—to accommodate every body size and sleeping position. The luxuriant Euro top has gel-infused foams that keep sleepers cool. The bed has a good balance between responsiveness and motion isolation, so you can move around easily without waking up your partner.

Add an additional latex pillow top for slightly more contouring and a medium-firm feel.

Shipping and Returns for WinkBeds & Avocado

WinkBeds  

You won’t need to pay for shipping when you order a WinkBeds mattress. However, the brand only ships to the continental U.S. As a bed-in-a-box mattress brand, WinkBeds’ mattresses arrive in a box on your doorstep. After you unbox your new bed, expect a slight odor for up to a few days. It may also take a day or two for the mattress to expand to its full size. 

WinkBeds’ return policy offers full refunds during their 120-night sleep trial. There is a 30-day adjustment period, which means you must keep your new mattress for 30 days before qualifying for a return. Most mattress companies have a similar waiting period policy because it can take a few weeks to get used to the feel of a new bed. 

Every WinkBeds bed comes with a generous warranty. WinkBeds replaces or repairs mattresses if there’s a covered defect for the entire lifetime of the product, so long as the original buyer still owns the bed. They also have a unique benefit where you may swap out your WinkBeds mattress for any new WinkBeds mattress in the same size and only pay 50 percent the price of the new bed. 

Avocado

Avocado ships their beds for free to all 50 states. For $249, someone comes to your home to unbox and set up the new mattress for you. If you would like, they can also remove your old mattress at no additional cost. Avocado beds are compressed into a box, but they have less of an off-gassing odor than the WinkBeds’ mattresses thanks to the absence of synthetic foams in Avocado’s beds. 

Avocado offers one of the most generous return policies in the mattress space. You have a full year to test drive your new bed. They too require you to keep your bed for 30 days before initiating a return. 

The Avocado Green mattress has a 25-year warranty, which is far longer than the typical 10-year warranty.

Our Final Take

We recommend the WinkBeds mattress over the Avocado for side sleepers, soft mattress fans, and sensitive sleepers who share the bed. The Avocado is a better pick for hot sleepers, people who toss and turn a lot, and eco-conscious consumers. Both have generous warranties and risk-free trial periods.
