AVOCADO GREEN MATTRESS REVIEW

With the highly toxic and chemical materials that go into the mattress construction, it is no wonder that a lot of sleepers are looking for a more eco-friendly and natural option. The usual mattresses are foam, latex, rubber, or hybrid contains certain levels of chemicals that can be very harmful to the body. A lot of the mattresses come with CertiPUR-USA certification that certifies the VOCs or volatile organic compounds to be under acceptable levels but that still does not make the mattress completely chemical-free. Even these low levels of toxic materials in your mattress can wreak havoc on your physical health if you are prone to allergies and are a sensitive person to even a slight bit of omissions. If you are a young family with babies and toddlers or have elderly people in the house then the usual commercial mattresses are probably not the best fit for your household.

This is where the green mattresses come into play. These mattresses are the perfect alternative to the other chemically loaded mattresses that are so readily available in the shops. The Avocado Green Mattress is one of the best green mattresses in the market today. This mattress is free from all toxic materials and comes with due certifications from independent labs and authorities. Still,with all the competition in the market, you should analyze the mattress well before deciding to buy it. This review will take you through all the highs and lows of the Avocado Green Mattress so that you have a real idea of the performance expectations and the durability feature of the mattress. You will also be able to evaluate the comfort and support aspects of the mattress which are generally the deal-making aspects of a mattress.

Overview

Avocado is a fairly young brand in the mattress industry. The company was founded in 2016 to provide the best natural mattresses to interested consumers. The brand is trying to bridge the gap in the market where eco-friendly mattress options are concerned. The majority of the mattresses you find in the market have chemicals and toxic substances. Some of them do not even carry the CertiPUR certification for toxicity levels. Unfortunately, even if an individual wants to go green there are not many attractive options in the market.

Most green mattresses compromise on comfort levels and are easily worn out making them an expensive option that is not easily affordable. The Avocado Green Mattress gives you the perfect balance of comfort, pressure relief, and durability. The company has since its inception branched out to include other sustainable sleep accessories and bedding solutions to its product portfolio making it an all-around shop for all your sleep needs.

Construction

The construction of the mattress plays a very important role in the overall comfort offered by the mattress. It also defines the joint support and pressure relief features of the mattress. A mattress that is constructed well will have high durability and a stable structure lending the mattress empowering the good performance levels. The Avocado Green Mattress is a handmade mattress that sports an advanced design. This enables the mattress to offer plush luxury without compromising on the pressure relief aspects.

  • Organic Cotton Cover

The cover of the mattress is made of organic cotton with an organic wool fire barrier. This keeps the cover cool against the skin with easy breathability. The organic wool barrier wicks away sweat and humidity to further enhance the coolness and keep your body temperature well maintained. This cover is a 100% GOTS certified organic material.

  • Comfort Layer

The second layer in the mattress construction is the comfort layer of the mattress. This layer defines the comfort level of the mattress. It is made of Dunlop Latex and sports a thickness of 2-inches. Further, the latex is 100% GOLS certified for its organic origins and make-up. This latex is a highly adaptive latex that allows you free movement on the mattress while offering advanced body contouring.

  • Transition Layer

The transition layer is the middle layer of the mattress. This layer acts as a buffer between the Dunlop latex on top and the coil structure below it. It prevents the latex layer from sinking too much into the mattress and also supports the coil layer by allowing it adequate breathing space in the mattress construction. This sports a thickness of 1-inch and is a high-core adaptive foam.

  • Support Core

Every mattress needs a core support layer to maintain the structural balance and provide a good bounce. This support core is made of individually pocketed coils and is 8 inches in height. The coils are zoned with three gauges of 14, 16, and 17 and are reinforced towards the edges with a steel core for added support and durability.

  • Base Layer

The base layer keeps the mattress together and prevents it from slipping off the bed frame. This layer is made of Dunlop latex and has a depth of 1-inch. It allows the coils’ good base support to bounce off without disturbing the mattress’s inner core.

Apart from these layers, the Pillow top version of the Avocado Green mattress has an additional 2-inch of Dunlop latex layer that adds to the comfort layer of the mattress. The rest of the construction is the same in both original and pillow top versions.

Comfort

The inner coil system along with the latex top makes this mattress highly responsive. This is a great feature for comfort and gives you a lush sink-in type of sleeping surface. The mattress hugs your body and supports your joints and joint gaps well for a good posture and body alignment. The mattress outer cover is soft and velvety to the touch. It gives a premium feel while lying on it.

On the overall comfort level, the Avocado green mattress gives you great indulgence. Apart from the existing level of high coziness factor you also have the added option of opting for a supplementary pillow top layer. It will cost you an extra $400 and adds a 2-inch-thick layer of gentle organic latex to the top of the mattress. This further augments the comfort feature and makes the mattress softer and plusher.

Pressure Relief

A mattress needs to offer good pressure relief properties for you to sleep well on it. Pressure tends to build upon your joints, lower back, shoulders, and neck region while asleep. This can lead to chronic physio problems if they are not handled well. You need a mattress that supports your sleeping style and ensures that adequate provision is given to your body curves and posture while asleep to dissipate any pressure on the joints.

The Avocado Green Mattress is a perfect blend of an inner coil and foam structure that uplifts your hips and sinks into your shoulders to maintain the perfect body alignment. The high firmness prevents your back and spine from twisting while asleep and also allows for good body movement. This helps in preventing any chronic backache problems and hip pains.

Motion Isolation

There is nothing more annoying than waking up constantly at night because of your partner’s movements. If you are a light sleeper then the problem becomes even worse. Motion isolation allows the mattress to absorb the motion and activity on one side and isolate it from the rest of the mattress. Unfortunately, this mattress does not rank very high with motion isolation. The inner coil construction of the mattress prevents it from successfully isolating activity and movement meaning that every little movement and change of position from your partner will trickle down to your side of the bed. This can cause light sleepers some problems which will only be worse if you have a fidgety sleeping partner.

Adaptiveness and Response

It takes time for most people to settle down after you climb into bed. You are bound to move around and try different positions before you get down to sleep. Even if you are just lounging on the bed, chances are that you will continuously try different angles before finding the right comfort zone. The Avocado Green mattress works very well in allowing you to change positions easily. The mattress has a highly responsive latex layer that sinks into your body impressions making you extremely comfortable. The coil layer on the other hand gives the mattress the bounciness it needs to be able to shift your positions easily. Hence, you can change your angles and get in or out of bed very easily without having to heave yourself out of a position with this mattress.

Firmness Level

  • Firmness : 7 / 10

The Avocado is a hard mattress and sports a high firmness level. It ranks a 7 out of 10 on the firmness quotient. This makes the mattress uncomfortable for sensitive sleepers. If you take the pillow top option then the firmness level goes down to 6 out of 10. This makes the pillow top Avocado Green mattress a medium-firm surface.

Sleeping Style

The same mattress offers different comfort levels and support experiences to different sleeping styles. The different sleeping style along with bodyweight is discussed below:

  • Stomach Sleeper

Finding a good mattress for strict stomach sleepers can be very tricky. This is because stomach sleeping requires a firm mattress that still offers enough body contouring to be able to lift the hips to the shoulder and neck height. For this purpose, you need a super supportive mattress that will give you proper spinal alignment while lying on your tummy. The mattress needs to be able to push back the pressure that the body makes on the mattress to give you a stable sleeping surface and prevent the hips from sinking into the bed. This need for firmness makes the Avocado Green mattress a perfect fit for stomach sleepers. The pillow top version of the mattress will allow lightweight stomach sleepers a better comfort and support level since the mattress will not pinch into their tummy

  • Side Sleepers

Side sleepers need a soft to medium surface to get the maximum comfort from their mattress. Side sleeping puts a lot of weight on your sides and hips. This causes too much pressure on the body joints especially the posture of the body is not good for effective spinal and hip alignment. You need some extra cushioning for your hips and shoulders with side sleeping to take the pressure off. Along with this you also require the mattress to be extra adaptive to body conformation so that it can easily cradle your side profile.

The Avocado Green mattress is a combination of coils and latex. The coils provide good pressure relief by targeting the hips and upper shoulders but the latex firmness is on the high side to offer good comfort for side sleepers. The pillow top version of the green mattress takes care of the firmness and makes the mattress conducive to side sleeping but even with this, there will still be a compromise on the comfort zone.

  • Back Sleepers

Back sleepers benefit the most from a mattress that evenly distributes the weight throughout the sleeping surface. The even weight distribution is very important since that is the only way you can keep your spine aligned properly while sleeping on your back. Avocado Green mattress has a unique coil and latex hybrid construction. This allows the mattress to give zoned support to the body filling in the spinal and hip gap while you lay on your back. The high firmness level also keeps the whole body in tune with the shoulder, spine, and hip angle. This also allows you to easily move around this mattress and shift your weight comfortably while asleep.

Body Weight

Just like sleeping style even bodyweight makes a lot of difference to the various performance levels of the mattress. While heavyweight individually requires a firmer surface, lightweight sleepers need a
softer than usual surface to get the proper comfort level. The Avocado Green mattress interaction with different body weights is detailed below:

  • Under 130 lbs.: The mattress might not be very suitable as the firmness level will be too high for light-weighted people. They will not find effective comfort and luxury with the mattress pinching their body joints.
  • Between 130 lbs. and 250 lbs.: People in this weight category will find the mattress provides them with great support. Comfort level might be a bit problematic but it can be easily adjusted to.
  • Over 250 lbs.: Heavyweight sleepers will find that the Avocado mattress gives them good support and comfort level. It is an effective sleeping surface that gives just the right amount of cushiness and pressure relief.
