COMPETITION: See Mattress Type Comparison to get detailed reviews about how Latex Mattresses compare to other mattress types.

BASIC INFO: Latex mattresses consist of all-natural, synthetic or blended latex like Talalay and Dunlop with covers made from organic cotton or regular materials. Latex mattresses are often deemed as the advanced version of memory foam mattresses.


Price & Value

Natural latex mattresses range from $1000 to $6000+, which is much pricier than blended or synthetic ones, and correspondingly, natural latex performs better in areas like lifespan, sagging, etc.


Since each layer of the mattress can be flipped individually and replaced by a new layer, on average, the lifespan of a latex mattress is about 8 years which is longer than the average life expectancy of all mattresses.


The most complained problem that the latex mattresses received is compression. A significant number of users report that their beds develop uneven surfaces due to body impression after three years of everyday use.


For those who prefer firmer mattresses, Dunlop latex is a suitable choice while Talalay latex tends to be softer and more conforming. Know more at Mattress Firmness Guide.

Less back pain    

The good conforming ability also benefits a person's back.


Rotating the latex mattress head to foot regularly will help maintain its comfort and supportability.

Sleeping hot    

The sleeping hot problem happens sometimes according to all-latex users.

Odor & Noise

Because of the materials contained in the mattress, they may smell like rubber for a few days. Latex mattresses tend to be quiet.

Middle area    

Customizable beds on both sides may lead to an uncomfortable middle area

Sex suitability    

Talalay's bouncy quality increases sex suitability to some degree.

Large & Small people suitability

People over 230 pounds tend to enjoy a superb experience on thicker(10+") models of the latex mattress.

People with 130-230 pounds find the latex mattresses quite cozy for most models.

People under 130 pounds can also find their suitable models.

Easy to move, transport    

The latex mattresses generally weigh 65-190 pounds, so the degree of easy moving varies.


Latex mattresses often provide 20 years warranty with about 10-year non-prorated coverage. In some cases, less expensive models have a shorter warranty scope of 5 or 10 years. Know more at Mattress Warranty: All You Need to Know.
