Latex for Less Mattress Overview

Latex for Less was founded in 2014. They sell an American-made flippable natural latex mattress in 7- and 9-inch profiles, along with a mattress foundation, adjustable bed base, mattress topper, and pillow.

The Latex for Less Mattress’s four-layer construction makes the mattress reversible, providing two firmness options in one mattress. Two latex layers in the center switch roles of support core and comfort layer depending on which side of the mattress is facing up. One layer consists of a medium-firm Talalay latex and the other is a firm Dunlop latex.

On each side of these latex layers lie a natural wool layer and a stretched organic cotton cover. The wool provides natural fire protection.

In this review, we evaluate the Latex for Less Mattress in terms of construction, pricing, and performance. We also compare it to similar mattresses and provide warranty, shipping, and return information.

Not Recommended for...

  • Sleepers needing a high-profile mattress. This mattress is only offered in a 7 or 9 inch profile and has average edge support, which could make it too low and flexible for people who have trouble getting in and out of bed.
  • Lightweight side sleepers. Some sleepers in this category might find that the mattress is too firm for them and puts strain on their hips and shoulders.

How Is the Latex for Less Mattress Constructed?

Cover

The cover is made of stretched cotton and has a very soft feel. The cotton is also certified organic, making it a good choice for eco-conscious shoppers.

Comfort and Support Layers

Just below the cotton cover, there’s a layer of wool on both sides of the mattress. In the 9-inch mattress, this layer is half an inch thick. Wool is soft and naturally moisture-wicking, so it helps keep sleepers cool.

Wool also acts as a natural fire protectant, so this mattress is free of the chemical flame retardants applied to most mattresses.

Because the Latex for Less Mattress is reversible, it has two layers that function as both a support layer or a comfort layer depending on which side is facing up. The latex layer that’s closer to the floor at any given time performs as the support layer.

Both latex layers are made of natural latex and contain no synthetic materials. One layer is natural Talalay latex (14-19 ILD), and the other is natural Dunlop latex (36 ILD). ILD is a measure of firmness that generally corresponds to the density of the latex. Dunlop latex is generally denser than Talalay latex. Both latex layers in this mattress have small holes added to them throughout to increase breathability.

When the Talalay layer is up, the mattress rates 6, or medium firm, on the 10-point firmness scale. When the firmer Dunlop latex is up, the mattress rates firm, or 7.5. The mattress has a small tag on its side indicating which side of the mattress is associated with which firmness level.

Mattress Height

The Latex for Less Mattress comes in 7- and 9-inch profiles. The 9-inch is close to the thickness of an average 10-inch mattress, while the 7-inch is a low-profile mattress.

A thinner mattress keeps the sleeper closer to the ground. It can be useful in spaces with limited room, such as on an RV or in a bunk bed. Lower-profile mattresses also tend to fit better on adjustable bed bases.

What Are the Firmness and Feel Like?

The Latex for Less Mattress feels like a traditional latex mattress in the sense that it is more responsive than conforming. This mattress is a good choice for sleepers who prefer to feel like they are sleeping on top of, rather than sinking into, the mattress. It isn’t the best choice for sleepers who want the close “hugging” feeling of memory foam beds.

Because the Latex for Less Mattress is flippable, it has two firmness options. When the Talalay latex layer is up, the mattress rates 6, or medium firm, on the 10-point firmness scale. When flipped so the Dunlop latex layer is up, the mattress rates 7.5, or firm. Our sleep testers of all weights found adequate support in this mattress, though only the heavyweight sleepers preferred the firm side.
 

Ratings Breakdown

Performance Ratings

Now let’s look closely at the performance ratings we gave the Latex for Less Mattress. We determined these ratings based on reports from our internal and external sleep testers and feedback from verified mattress owners.

Durability

Latex for Less has been manufacturing mattresses since 2014, and so far, customers have rated their mattresses positively when it comes to durability.

Customers can expect this mattress to last longer than the 5-7 years that are average for most mattresses. Natural latex is widely known to be one of the most durable mattress materials available. Since Latex for Less uses high-quality, natural latex, their mattress should retain its shape and feel for a long time.

All-natural latex is more durable and lasts longer than synthetic latex and blended latex. Blended latex is a mixture of both natural and synthetic latex.

Motion Isolation

Our overnight testers who shared this mattress with a partner found that they could feel very little movement throughout the night. They were not generally bothered by motion transfer when their partner rolled over or got in or out of bed.

Latex tends to be springy, so there is some motion transfer in this bed. Although the Latex for Less Mattress isolates motion very well, it does not completely isolate motion the way some all-foam mattresses can.

Off-Gassing

We found there was an odor upon opening the Latex for Less Mattress. This smell was no stronger than average for an all-latex mattress. It greatly dissipated within 24 hours.

Most people won’t be bothered by the off-gassing from this mattress. Those who are more sensitive to smells, however, might want to avoid the mattress in the hours after it is first opened. Since this mattress is constructed with only natural materials, customers can rest assured that there are no harmful chemicals being off-gassed.

Pressure Relief

Our pressure relief measurement tools showed that sleepers of all weights received adequate pressure relief on the Latex for Less Mattress. The medium side of the bed provided better pressure relief for lightweight and average-weight sleepers, while the firm side provided better pressure relief for heavyweight sleepers. Overall, heavyweight sleepers experienced the best pressure relief.

Latex mattresses aren’t known for providing as much pressure relief as mattresses with memory foam comfort layers. Latex also feels different than foam. Although it does absorb pressure, it feels more bouncy and responsive.

Latex won’t conform and “hug” the body as much as memory foam. Latex is more likely to retain its shape over time, however. Memory foam can develop body indentations, so its pressure relieving ability can lessen over time.

Temperature Neutrality

We found the Latex for Less Mattress tends to sleep cooler than many mattresses, particularly those that are all-foam. Both the Talalay and Dunlop latex layers in the Latex for Less Mattress are aerated, meaning they have tiny holes in them throughout. These holes increase airflow and improve temperature neutrality without compromising the mattress’s construction.

Wool is a moisture-wicking fiber, so the wool layers directly beneath the mattress cover on both sides helps protect sleepers from becoming sweaty at night.

Edge Support

When our testers sat on the edge of the Latex for Less Mattress, they experienced some sinkage. Sinking edges can be an issue for people who have trouble getting in and out of bed and need to use their hands on the edge to hoist themselves up. This mattress has better edge support than many all-foam mattresses, however.

Our testers found the edge support was good when they were lying on the Latex for Less Mattress. Sleepers of all weights felt supportive, and like they were not at risk of slipping off the bed.

Noise

The Latex for Less Mattress is virtually silent. Our internal and external sleep testers didn’t notice any sounds when they or their sleeping partners moved around on the bed.

Natural latex mattresses are generally very quiet. Innerspring mattresses and hybrid mattresses tend to be louder. Though most of these types of beds use construction methods to reduce their noise, all-latex do not contain coils that produce sound.

Sex

The Latex for Less Mattress rates well for sex, largely because it is so responsive. The springiness of latex means the mattress is responsive to movement and quickly bounces back. This quality makes movement on the mattress easier.

The Latex for Less Mattress is also extremely quiet, and has decent edge support. It would’ve rated even higher for sex if its edge support was better. The edges do sink a bit when people sit on them, which could negatively impact some sexual activity.

Sleeper Ratings

Next, let’s focus on our sleeper ratings for the Latex for Less Mattress.

There is no universal ideal when it comes to mattresses. A sleeper’s body weight, shape, and preferred sleep position will determine their preferred mattress firmness and thickness. To avoid subjectivity and instead provide customized information that applies to specific individuals, the Tuck team evaluated the Latex for Less Mattress with sleep testers of different body weights and preferred sleep positions.

Lightweight Sleepers – Less than 130 lbs.

Our lightweight sleepers much preferred the medium side of the Latex for Less Mattress, which rates 5 on the 10-point firmness scale. This side provided good support for lightweight sleepers lying on their backs and stomachs. The mattress is a bit firm for side sleepers in this weight category, however, and some might find they experience compression in their hip and shoulder areas.

The Latex for Less Mattress will feel firm to many lightweight sleepers, even when on the medium side. Lightweight sleepers who prefer firm mattresses will likely enjoy this, while others might find it too firm.

Average Weight Sleepers – 130 to 230 lbs.

Our average-weight sleep testers felt supported by the Latex for Less Mattress when lying on their backs and stomachs. Average-weight sleepers also experienced decent spinal alignment when lying on their sides.

Some average-weight side sleepers might feel more comfortable on a softer mattress, however. Like lightweight sleepers, most average-weight sleepers will prefer the medium side of this mattress and find the firm side to be too firm.

The Latex for Less Mattress is a good choice for average-weight sleepers who prefer a more responsive mattress that gives a sensation of sleeping on, rather than in, the mattress. The mattresses bounces back immediately when a sleeper moves off of it, and doesn’t leave even temporary indentations the way some memory foam mattresses might.

Heavyweight Sleepers – More than 230 lbs.

Of all of our sleep testers, heavyweight sleepers experienced the best spinal alignment while sleeping on their sides on the Latex for Less Mattress. Heavyweight sleepers also experienced superior lumbar support when sleeping on their backs, and adequate support when lying on their stomachs.

Heavyweight sleepers will generally prefer the firm side of the Latex for Less Mattress. The medium side might not provide the support heavyweight sleepers require. The Latex for Less Mattress feels firm and responsive to all sleepers, so it is a good choice for heavyweight sleepers who prefer a firm mattress.

How Does the Latex for Less Mattress Compare to Other Beds?

Comparing similar mattresses helps customers ensure they are selecting the best bed for them. Here, we compare the Latex for Less Mattress to four other models with similar features.

Latex for Less vs. Zenhaven

Like the Latex for Less Mattress, the Zenhaven Mattress is a flippable latex mattress with two firmness levels. The Zenhaven Mattress has a medium-soft side, which rates 4 on the 10-point firmness scale, and a firm side, which rates 7 on firmness. Lightweight sleepers might find they prefer the Zenhaven’s medium-soft side, which is softer than the Latex for Less medium side that rates 5 on firmness. Heavyweight sleepers will find the mattresses to feel very similar.

Both mattresses are virtually silent and also rate well on motion isolation and pressure relief. Our testing found the Zenhaven Mattress has poor edge support, so sleepers who sit or sleep on the edge of the bed would be better off with the Latex for Less Mattress. Though these mattresses are similar, Zenhaven is a top luxury pick, making it more expensive than the Latex for Less.

Latex for Less vs. SleepOnLatex Pure Green Standard

The Latex for Less and SleepOnLatex Pure Green Standard Mattresses are both natural latex mattresses that contain wool and have an organic cotton cover. Both mattresses also come in two profile heights and are American-made. A major difference is that the SleepOnLatex Pure Green Standard does not have two firmness levels in one mattress like the Latex for Less. It does come in soft, medium, and firm options, however.

The SleepOnLatex Pure Green Standard Mattresses are made with Dunlop, not Talalay, latex. Dunlop latex gives them a slightly more conforming and less springy feel than the Latex for Less Mattress, which contains both Dunlop and the more responsive Talalay.

Latex for Less vs. PlushBeds Botanical Bliss

The Latex for Less and PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Mattresses are both natural latex mattresses that contain wool, have an organic cotton cover, and are available in multiple profile options. The PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Mattress is available in 9-, 10-, and 12-inch profiles, making it a more attractive option to shoppers who want a higher-profile latex mattress.

Like the Latex for Less, the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Mattress offers multiple firmness levels within a single mattress. Rather than being flipped, the Botanical Bliss cover can be unzipped, and latex layers of varying thicknesses may be rearranged. Customers must first choose whether they want firm or medium. This system offers customers more firmness options than the Latex for Less Mattress offers.

Read our complete PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Mattress Review.

Latex for Less vs. Nest Bedding Latex Mattress

The Nest Bedding Latex Mattress differs from the Latex for Less by offering both “Organic Latex” and “Natural Latex” options. The Organic Latex option is all natural latex, similar to the Latex for Less Mattress, except it is fully certified organic. The Natural Latex option is made of a blend of both natural and synthetic latex, which is why it has a lower price point than the Organic Latex option. Although the Latex for Less and Nest Bedding Latex Mattresses are very similar, the Latex for Less costs much less than the Organic Latex option from Nest Bedding.

The Nest Bedding Latex Mattress comes in soft, medium, and firm. The medium and firm options will feel similar to the medium and firm sides of the Latex for Less. Both the support core and comfort layer of the Nest Bedding mattress are Dunlop latex, while the Latex for Less mattress has one Talalay latex layer.

The Nest Bedding soft option might be preferred by lightweight sleepers who find the Latex for Less Mattress too firm. It contains a Dunlop latex topper that the medium and firm versions of the Nest Mattress do not have, which raises the price.
