To establish the firmness ratings of our mattresses, we brought together mattress industry veterans and rookies for a blind test for every version of each of our mattresses. While everyone sleeps differently based on their preferences and sleep position, the results of these side-by-side comparisons were the consensus on how each mattress feels. The ratings give us a more accurate portrayal of the average experience. They fall across a spectrum, from a rating of 3 to 7.5, on a scale of 1 to 10, with a 10 being the firmest.
Green/Vegan Mattress Pillowtop: 6/10, Gentle-Firm
For a luxury, plush feel, you can upgrade your Green or Vegan bed with an attached European-style pillow-top filled with an additional 2-inch layer of GOLS organic certified latex rubber foam — for a total of 5 inches. At 13 inches thick, it’s ideal for all side and combination sleepers and those needing more pressure relief or a luxurious feel. The pillowtop version of our Vegan or Green mattress rates Gentle-firm — a 6 out of 10, with 10 being the firmest.
Green Mattress/Vegan Mattress Standard: 7/10, Medium-Firm
Our standard Green Mattress or Vegan Mattress (without a pillowtop) rates medium-firm, or a 7 out 10, with 10 being the most firm. With a medium, yet firm feel, our standard Avocado Green Mattress sets the standard for affordable eco-luxury. At 11-inches thick, with 3 inches of GOLS organic certified latex rubber foam, it delivers a balanced firmness, comfort, and support. It’s ideal for back and stomach sleepers, and average to large/tall side sleepers. You can add a mattress topper at any time to adjust the feel.
Latex Mattress/Vegan Latex Mattress: 7.5/10, Firm
Our Latex Mattress and Vegan Latex Mattress rate as a 7.5 on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the most firm. It’s our firmest mattress.
