Do Slight Variations In Mattress Dimensions Occur?

The subtle variations in our mattresses are a testament that your mattress was truly handmade by artisans, not machines.

Every Avocado Mattress is handmade in California, using the same quantity of natural and organic materials appropriate for each mattress size. Our organic latex is precision cut and our innerspring units are made to exacting manufacturing standards. These core components have close to zero variation in size. However, subtle size variations — up to 2 inches smaller or larger — may appear when you first receive your mattress.

Why could a size variations occur, given our exacting component standards?

It could be a variety or combination of factors: how long your mattress is left compressed in the box, how tight the covers are sewn by hand, subtle variations in the tightness of the needle-tufting process, which is also done by hand, and even environmental factors within your own home. However, in 90% of the instances, these size variations actually disappear within the first 30 days with regular usage, as the organic cotton covers gently give and the organic latex is allowed to expand naturally. That's why 30 days is required before warranty claims for size variations can be considered. In 90% of the instances, a bit of patience is all that's needed.
