Firmness

The Latex for Less mattress has a reversible firmness design. One side of the mattress is Medium, falling around a 5-5.5 on the firmness scale. The other side is Firm or about 7-7.5.

Both the 7” and 9” model have this reversible firmness option.

Availability

The Latex for Less mattress can be purchased through the company’s website or on Amazon.

Construction

The 7” and 9” Latex for Less mattress models have extremely similar construction. Both have a cover that is made with Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton.

The mattress uses both Talalay and Dunlop latex. These have a different feel based on how the latex is molded. Talalay latex is more homogenous and with a bouncier, softer feel. Dunlop latex is denser and firmer.

Both the Talalay and Dunlop latex in these mattresses is natural and does not include any blending with synthetic latex.

The wool in the mattress is 100% natural and made from sheep from California.

The specific layering and interior construction of each mattress is outlined below.

7" Model

  1. The first layer is a .5” of wool.
  2. The second layer is 4” of Dunlop latex with a firm feel.
  3. The third layer is 2” of Talalay latex with a medium firmness.
  4. The bottom layer is a second .5” of wool.

9" Model

  1. The first layer underneath the cover is a .5” of wool.
  2. The second layer is 6” of firm Dunlop latex.
  3. The third layer is 2” of medium Talalay latex.
  4. The bottom layer is another .5” of wool.
Shipping

The Latex for Less mattresses are shipped for free via FedEx to the contiguous United States.

The mattress is made to order and normally arrives within 3-7 business days after an order is placed.

Additional Services

No additional services, such as white glove installation or old mattress removal, are offered by Latex for Less.

Sleep Trial

Each Latex for Less mattress comes with a 120-night guarantee. If you aren’t satisfied with the bed, you can get a full refund. Latex for Less arranges for pickup of the mattress from your home at no cost if you decide to return it.

Customers should be aware that the 120-night sleep trial only comes with products purchased directly from Latex for Less and not those purchased from third parties. Purchases through Amazon generally only come with Amazon’s standard 30 day return window.

Warranty

Latex for Less mattresses are backed by a 20-year non-prorated warranty. This means that if there is a defect in the mattress within 20 years, it will be replaced or repaired. The only charges to you would be for transportation or shipping costs associated with the warranty claim.

Latex for Less Mattress Performance

Motion Isolation

There is very little transfer of motion on the Latex for Less mattresses. Though there is bounce from the latex material, there is enough conforming to keep this motion from being felt strongly on other parts of the bed.

Edge Support

Edge support in the Latex for Less mattresses is average to above average. While there will be some sinkage around the perimeter, the side of the bed will not completely cave in.

The 9” model will have stronger edge support, especially when being used on the firmer side, thanks to the thicker layer of dense Dunlop latex.

Heat Retention

Latex is effective at resisting the buildup of body heat, so these mattresses do not generally sleep hot.

The cotton cover and wool layer improve moisture-wicking and breathability to fight heat retention.

Off-Gassing

There will normally be a light odor from the Latex for Less mattresses when they are brand new, but any smell should quickly dissipate, typically within hours or at most a couple of days.

Support

Most sleepers find the Latex for Less mattresses to be quite supportive. The combination of Dunlop and Talalay latex provides a mixture of stability and contouring. This lets the mattress accommodate pressure points without excessive sinkage.

The resilience of latex makes it easy to adjust your sleeping position to get the best support without ever feeling like you are stuck or have sunk too deeply into the mattress.

Conforming

Latex conforms to the body through compression, but it does not have abundant hug. The softer side of this mattress will provide greater conforming than the firmer side.

Durability

Latex has good longevity as a mattress material. The thickest layer of this mattress is made with Dunlop latex, which has a dense composition that works well as a fundamental support layer. Though lighter, Talalay latex is durable as well, and most customers can expect to get great performance from this mattress for at least 6-8 years.

Sex

Moving on top of the Latex for Less mattress is easy because of the resilience and bounciness of latex. For this reason, these beds are excellent for people with an active sex life.

What Type of Sleeper is Suited to the Latex for Less Mattress?

Finding the right match in a mattress can be a tricky proposition. While some mattresses claim to have “universal comfort,” the fact is that many variables influence whether a bed is likely to meet your needs.

Beyond your own comfort preferences, two important variables are your weight and favored sleeping position.

Side sleepers: in general, side sleepers get the best results from responsive mattresses that are neither too firm nor too soft. The reversible firmness of the Latex for Less mattresses make them a great fit for side sleepers of virtually any body weight. Sleepers over 230 pounds may find more support and durability from the 9” model.

Back sleepers: the firm side of the Latex for Less can provide an excellent feel for back sleepers who need a mattress without too much sag. This material gives the right balance of conforming and resilience to support spinal alignment in back sleepers. People over 230 pounds should err toward the 9” model for enhanced cushioning and longevity.

Stomach sleepers: a firm mattress with mild contouring typically is best for stomach sleepers, and the Latex for Less mattresses meet this description when used on the firmer side. For stomach sleepers over 230 pounds, the 9” model provides extra cushion and may extend the useful life of the mattress.

Our Verdict

Latex is a high-performance material, and Latex for Less makes it available in a well-designed mattress at an extremely competitive price point.

Both the 7” and the 9” mattress models come with layers of both Dunlop and Talalay latex, and this combination offers the benefits of each type. Dunlop latex provides firmness, stability, and durability while the Talalay latex delivers extra softness and bounce.

The layering is designed to allow you to flip the mattress to alternate between a medium and firm feel. As a result, the bed can meet the support needs for sleepers with many different weights, sleeping positions, and comfort preferences.

The bed uses 100% natural latex that is surrounded by wool and a certified organic cotton cover. Given the quality of the materials and the performance of the bed, the Latex for Less mattresses are a top-notch value.
