Quick Summary

Nolah offers two different mattresses.  The Nolah Original 10 is a 10″ HR polyfoam mattress, while the Nolah Signature 12 is a 12″ flippable HR polyfoam mattress.  The two mattresses make use of Nolah’s proprietary AirFoam.

Our review of the Nolah Mattresses found that the AirFoam did a great job hugging our hips and shoulders as we laid on our side, taking any pressure away.  The Nolah Signature 12 had a firmer feel when flipped and give our heavier sleepers excellent support keeping the spine aligned when sleeping on their stomach.  Both mattresses did seem to sleep a bit more cool than a traditional memory foam mattress.

Read on for our full review of the Nolah Mattresses, including sleeper and performance ratings, who we recommend this bed to, and everything else you need to know about the mattress.

Durability

The durability of Nolah mattresses appears to be at least fair, but the company has been in business for roughly three years and the long-term performance of these models has not been assessed.

Motion Isolation

The Nolah mattress isolates transfer to some extent, but not as much as models with memory foam layers that absorb and minimize motion more effectively.

Off-gassing

Nolah mattresses emit some odor when new, but no more than other mixed foam models; the smells typically clear out within a few days.

Durability

The Nolah Signature rates as middle-of-the-road on durability. We expect this bed to last around 7 years, which is average for a foam mattress.

Motion Isolation

The Signature does a wonderful job of cradling pressure, allowing the mattress to absorb impact and reduce the movement you'll feel across the surface of the bed.

Off-gassing

A slight odor is present after unboxing, and takes some time to dissipate. Give this mattress over 24 hours for the off-gassing smell to fade.

Sex

As an all-foam mattress, the Signature is inherently unresponsive, making movement on the bed more of a challenge. It provides an adequate surface for sex, but is not perfect.

Temperature Neutrality

Temperature neutrality tests show the Signature does trap heat in its all-foam layering. Hot sleepers might consider the Signature too warm, but it's on par with foam beds.

Testing showed the presence of roll-off, signaling weaker edge support. Edge support is lacking in most foam mattresses, and the Signature is no different.

What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to a Nolah Mattress?

Based on customer feedback and our internal testing, Nolah mattresses received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions.

Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.

For more information on sleeping positions please see our guides for side, back, stomach and combination sleepers.

  • Nolah Original
  • Nolah Signature
Weight Light Average Heavy
Sleep Position Less than 130 LBS 130 LBS - 230 LBS Greater than 230 LBS
Side
Back
Stomach
Weight Light Average Heavy
Sleep Position Less than 130 LBS 130 LBS - 230 LBS Greater than 230 LBS
Side
Back
Stomach

As you can see, the Nolah is an excellent choice for side sleepers of all weight categories, and performs well for those who sleep on their back.

We are hesitant to recommend the soft side of the Nolah Signature 12 to larger sleepers, since it likely will lack the necessary support, but the firm side of the mattress should be great.

Nolah Mattress Recommendations

  • You’re looking for an affordable memory foam mattress.
  • You love the feel of memory foam – sleeping more “in” than “on” a bed.
  • Looking for the ability to flip the mattress find the proper feel for you.
  • You sleep with a partner and want to limit the movement you encounter on the bed.

    Warranty: Nolah Sleep offers a 15-year replacement warranty for all mattresses.

    1. Warranty coverage begins on the date of purchase; the warranty is entirely nonprorated. Nolah Sleep will, at their sole option, repair or replace all mattresses that are deemed defective for as long as the warranty is valid.
    2. Nolah mattresses are designed for use with certain types of foundational support. According to the company, mattresses must be supported with a ‘supportive and proper foundation/base which is substantial enough to support the mattress and its users‘. Use of an improper foundation will void the warranty.
    3. Nolah Sleep will cover all costs related to physically repairing or replacing a mattress, as well as all transportation and handling charges for shipping a defective mattress to the company. If the mattress is not covered under warranty, the owner must pay a maximum of $100 in shipping charges each way.
    4. The warranty will cover the following product defects:
      • Visible indentations or sagging in the mattress surface that measure one and a half inches (1 1/2″) or deeper and are not the result of owner misuse and/or improper foundational support.
      • Physical flaws in the foam that cause it to deteriorate or crack prematurely.
      • Manufacturing flaws related to the cover, including issues with seams or zippers. Nolah Sleep may opt to only replace the cover if there are no other issues with the mattress.
    5. The warranty will not cover the following:
      • Normal increases in foam softness that do not affect its pressure-relieving abilities, or visible indentations or sagging in the mattress surface that do not measure one and a half inches (1 1/2″) or deeper. These issues are all considered standard wear and tear.
      • Burns, cuts, tears, stains, and other types of physical damage that occur as a direct result of owner misuse, improper cleaning, and/or inadequate foundational support.
    6. This warranty is exclusively extended to original owners who buy their mattress directly from Nolah Sleep or an authorized retailer. Those who buy or acquire their mattress from the original owner or a non-authorized retailer do so as is, and will not be entitled to warranty protection.
