MattressRating Price Our Take
Zenhaven

PlushBeds
4.8$1,199 - $2,099The best-sleeping, highest-quality 100% latex mattress sold online. All-natural materials, lots of options, and a super-long warranty.
Brooklyn Signature

Nest Hybrid Latex
4.8$1,199 - $1,899This is a luxury hybrid mattress. It has more bounce than the other latex mattresses, is better at cooling and has zero motion transfer.

Mattress Construction

Zenhanven, PlushBeds Botanical Bliss, and Brooklyn Signature are all-foam mattresses that utilize latex foam in their main support and comfort layers.

The Nest Hybrid Latex is the only one that combines latex foam with pocketed coils.

Zenhaven Construction

Best Latex Mattress

Zenhaven is a new mattress from Saatva that uses 100% natural latex.

The most interesting feature of Zenhaven is that you can change comfort levels by flipping the mattress over. One side provides Luxury Plush comfort while the other provides Gentle Firm comfort.

The mattress uses four Talalay latex layers with an organic cotton cover at the top plus organic wool as a fire barrier.

The top comfort layer consists of 1.5 inches of Talalay latex. This layer has a 5-zone design that aligns with different areas of your body.

The second support layer consists of 3 inches of Talalay latex. This layer has a higher ILD (density) rating than the top layer which allows the mattress to support your weight adequately.

The third layer is also a support layer of 3 inches Talalay latex. But it’s firmer than the second layer, which boosts compression support especially for heavier sleepers. When the mattress is flipped to the firmer side, this becomes the second layer and creates the ‘Gentle Firm’ comfort experience.

Finally, there is a foundation (comfort) layer of 1.5 inches Talalay latex with a zoned design. It is the foundation layer in the ‘Luxury Plush’ position and the comfort layer in the ‘Gentle Firm’ position. It is slightly firmer than the first comfort layer above.

PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Construction

Best Latex Mattress

The PlushBeds Botanical Bliss has three main layers plus an organic cotton cover and a layer of New Zealand wool to act as a fire barrier.

Note: The Botanical Bliss comes in three thickness options: 9, 10 and 12 inches. Each have different prices.

The top comfort layer consists of 2 inches of natural Talalay latex. It feels bouncy and plush yet resilient enough to support you.

The second/base layer consists of 6 inches of ARPICO Organic Latex. This type of latex foam has a noticeable denser feel than the Talalay latex above. It provides adequate compression support, preventing sagging and body impressions. This layer also doubles as the base of the mattress.

Read our Botanical Bliss review for more details about this mattress.

Brooklyn Signature Construction

Best Latex Mattress

Brooklyn Bedding uses a different kind of latex-like foam called TitanFlex in its Brooklyn Signature mattress. It’s very similar to organic latex foam and has most of the same characteristics, which is why we’ve included this mattress in our ‘Best Latex’ comparison.

This mattress has three layers adding up to 10 inches in thickness.

The top comfort layer is made of 2 inches of TitanFlex. It is infused with gel to provide both plush comfort and responsiveness. It combines the luxury pressure relief of memory foam and the bounce of latex foam.

The second support layer is made of another 2 inches of TitanFlex. This layer of foam is firmer than the top layer, which allows it to support more weight and prevent sagging.

The foundation layer consists of 6 inches of foundational foam. This high-density foam provides overall support and durability to the mattress.

Learn more about the Brooklyn Signature’s mattress construction.


Nest Hybrid Latex Construction

Best Latex Mattress

The Nest Hybrid Latex is a hybrid mattress consisting of foam and pocketed coil layers.

Like the other three mattresses, it has an organic cotton cover at the top and incorporates wool to helps with breathability and fire protection.

There are three main layers;

The top comfort layer is made of 3 inches of Talalay latex.It is medium-firm which provides a perfect balance between plush comfort and firm support. (Note: When buying the Nest Hybrid latex mattress, you can request Dunlop latex instead of Talalay latex.)

The second support layer consists of 8 inches pocketed coils. These pocketed coils provide excellent body contouring while also suporting your weight. This layer prevents too much sinkage (compression support) for those with heavier bodies. and prevents sagging, ensuring the mattress remains comfortable and supportive for years.

There is a thin slice of 1-inch foam at the bottom of the mattress. It enhances the support provided by the second layer.

Because of the pocketed coil layer, the Nest Hybrid Latex is definitely the best mattress of these four for heavier sleepers.

Firmness

All four mattresses offer a choice of firmness levels, but the Zenhaven is unique in how it provides that.

Zenhaven Firmness

Instead of selling a separate product for each firmness level, Zenhaven sells a single mattress that you can flip over to switch from Luxury Plush to Gentle Firm.

Best Latex Mattress

In this way, the Zenhaven is both a medium firm mattress and a firm mattress.

The Luxury Plush side provides a medium-firm comfort level that rates about 4-5 on our 10-point scale with ten being the firmest. It has more pronounced sinkage and feels quite plush. It’s the right choice of the two for side-sleepers and those who love to feel their mattress hugging them.

The Gentle Firm side of the Zenhaven offers a pretty firm feel that’s about 7-8 on our firmness scale. It has much less sinkage and is best for back- and stomach-sleepers.


PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Firmness

The PlushBeds Botanical Bliss comes in three firmness options: soft (19-21 ILD), medium (24-26 ILD) and medium firm (29-31 ILD).

They vary the firmness by changing the ILD rating  of the top comfort layer.

The soft option has a lower ILD, thus has more sinkage. It’s great for side sleepers and those who love to sink into their mattress. I’d rate it at around 4-5 on our firmness scale.

The medium option feels soft enough to be plush and firm enough that you don’t sink in too much. It’s the ideal choice for most people including those with back and joint problems. On our firmness scale, it falls between 5 and 6.

The medium firm is also somewhere in the middle of the firmness scale though it falls a bit on the firm end (6-7). It’s not too firm that you’ll feel like you are sleeping on the floor. It feels more like floating but still with a bit of softness for comfort.


Brooklyn Signature Firmness

Best Latex Mattress

Brooklyn Bedding also offers three firmness levels for their Signature latex mattress: soft, medium and firm.

The soft option has a more pronounced hug, making it extra-plush compared to the medium and firm comfort options. It’s ideal for side sleepers, and those who prefer a deep plush feel when they sleep.

The medium option is the most popular.  It’s great for most people since it offers the best balance between soft and firm. It doesn’t feel too soft nor does it feel uncomfortably firm. It’s good for all types of sleepers including back, stomach and side sleepers. It is also the recommended option for those with back problems.

The firm option is still comfortable but has very little sinkage. It’s perfect if you love floating on your mattress or like to move around a lot at night. It’s also great for back and stomach sleepers and those with a larger body type.


Nest Hybrid Latex Firmness

Best Latex Mattress

The Nest Hybrid Latex offers 2 firmness options: medium and firm.

The medium option is slightly on the soft side, rating around 5-5.5 on our firmness scale. It’s the best choice for most people.

The firm option rates around 6-6.5.


Sleeping Experience

All four of these four beds are luxury mattresses, and they feel like that.

And, all four do a great job with temperature control, a benefit that latex foam is well known for.


Zenhaven Sleeping Experience

Best Latex Mattress

You don’t have to worry about choosing the right firmness level if you buy the Zenhaven mattress – just flip the mattress to change it from firm to soft.

Whichever side you sleep on, the Zenhaven feels comfortable and supportive. The soft side feels plush with a deeper hug. The firm side doesn’t hug your body as much.

The mattress sleeps cool through the night, too. But that shouldn’t be a surprise, since Latex foam is naturally good at dissipating heat.

There is minimal motion transfer, so couples needn’t worry about waking each other in the middle of the night.

The Zenhaven mattress is also quite bouncy, a much welcome feature for your amorous nights.

If you are looking for a great all-latex foam mattress, we really like the new Zenhaven from Saatva.

PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Sleeping Experience

Best Latex Mattress

PlushBeds Botanical Bliss is the best organic latex mattress we’ve tested. If you want the full luxury hotel bed experience, buy the 12-inch size.

The sleeping experience is, according to me and to many other customers, very close to a luxury hotel experience.

The medium and soft comfort options feel really soft and plush. They cradle your joints and your back, which is really nice after a long day.

Being a latex mattress, the Pillow Plus never gets hot regardless of the weather outside.

It also has a nice bounce and very little motion transfer, both of which make this mattress a great choice for couples who like to, um, “move around” a lot at night 😉

Brooklyn Signature Sleeping Experience

The Brooklyn Signature mattress is the least expensive mattress of this lot. Perhaps that’s because it’s the only one that does not use natural or organic latex.

That aside, most customers claim that this mattress is just as luxurious as an organic latex mattress. Many also say it provides the best luxury for the money.

The medium firm Signature is the most popular comfort option, and it does feel plush without being too soft. You get firm support for your back and a nice hug for your hips and shoulders.

The mattress stays cool and fresh, has minimal motion transfer and offers a good level of responsiveness (bounce).

Nest Hybrid Latex Sleeping Experience

Best Latex Mattress

The Nest Latex Hybrid mattress is a luxury hybrid mattress, not an all-foam product like the other three.

It is also arguably the best latex hybrid mattress you can buy for less than $2,000.

You get the best features of latex foam and coil springs, which in the real world means more bounce than the others and less motion transfer.

The pocketed coils add to the bounce of the latex layer above. They also improve airflow, which enhances breathability and keeps the mattress cool. Because the coils are individually pocketed, they don’t transfer disturbance across the mattress.

Your sleeping experience will vary depending on which firmness level you choose.

The medium option is plush yet supportively firm.

The firm option feels more rigid with less of a body hug.

Warranty and Returns

All four companies offer very generous return policies and warranty coverage.

Nest Bedding really stands out from the pack with their exceptional lifetime warranty and lifetime comfort guarantee on their Hybrid Latex mattress.

NOTE: Please be careful to buy from the company’s official website. Third-party retailers like Amazon may only give you 30 days to test your mattress and return it.

Zenhaven Warranty and Return Policies

Zenhanven gives you 120 days – almost four months – to test their mattress and decide if you like it. You can return it at any time during this period for a full refund less the $99 delivery charge. You can also request an exchange though you’ll be charged $99 for handling.

As for the warranty, you can choose from two warranties, as follows:

  1. The standard warranty is for 20 years. Zenhaven handles all costs, including handling, during the first two years. For the rest of the warranty period, you’ll only pay for handling if you make a claim. Zenhaven still handles all replacement or repair costs.
  2. Saatva also offers a Fairness Replacement Option that runs for 20 years. It’s essentially a prorated warranty. They’ll replace the mattress at no cost to you during the first two years. After that, you pay a percentage of what you originally paid for your mattress. For years 3-5 it is 30%, for years 6-10 you pay 50% and for years 11-20, you pay 75% of the original price.

Read the Zenhanven Warranty and Return policies.


PlushBeds Warranty and Return Policies

Best Latex Mattress

PlushBeds offers a standard trial period of 100 days, which is plenty long enough to test the comfort of your mattress. If it doesn’t feel right, you can return it or request a comfort exchange at no cost to you.

The warranty is longer than most, at 25 years. The warranty has two phases. During the first ten years, PlushBeds will replace or repair the mattress at no cost to you. During the final 15 years, they will repair the mattress and charge you for the handling cost. If a full replacement is necessary, you’ll have to pay a percentage of the original price – which is 50% in the first year of the 15 years and increases by 3% for every subsequent year.

Read PlushBeds’s Warranty and Return policies.


 Brooklyn Signature Warranty and Return Policies

Best Latex Mattress

Brooklyn Bedding offers a 120-day return period. They ask that you at least sleep on the mattress for 30 days before initiating a return. Returns are completely free.

Brooklyn’s warranty is an industry-standard ten years, which in this case is the shortest of the bunch.

But it’s long enough considering that this is a budget-priced mattress. This warranty is non-prorated meaning the company will cover all costs for repair or replacement whether you claim the 1st or 10th year of coverage.

Read Brooklyn Bedding’s Warranty and Return policies.


Nest Hybrid Latex Warranty and Return Policies

Nest Bedding offers the best policies of this group, by far.

Nest offers a lifetime comfort guarantee. During the first 100 days, Nest offers a normal return policy. You can exchange the mattress for another comfort level at no fee or return it for a full refund. After the first 100 days, and for as long as you own your mattress, you can exchange your mattress for a firmer or softer one after paying 50% of the then-current mattress price.

Nest’s also provides a lifetime warranty. As long as you own the mattress, Nest Bedding will cover any replacement or repair costs for approved claims.
