My wife and I sleep on a king size Zinus Responsive Memory Foam Mattress. It was cheap. After nearly one year the mattress has held up pretty well for the price we paid, a very reasonable $237.15. Today’s price is $374.99 at the time of this writing. It’s got a little bit of a ridge in the middle, a little bit of a dip on my side from supporting my 225-pound frame, with a much smaller dip on my wife’s side.
When we first got the mattress I noticed the smell. It wasn’t bad, but it did smell a little bit like chemicals. It could have been worse, but it certainly isn’t what I would call a healthy mattress.
I’m not complaining mind you. It was a great deal, and I think it’s going to last at least another two years before the dips become too deep. It’s certainly not a ten-year mattress, at my size, but I think most lighter humans would be very happy with such a purchase.
Our kids slept on a very old full-size mattress that we got for free. I won’t say how; let me just say that we cleaned it well, and it was old enough that it had done its off-gassing long ago. But the springs were starting to poke out, and our kids deserve better.
I wanted to get them a good mattress. I didn’t want to get them a new mattress made with all the toxic components that mattresses were made from, but we couldn’t afford the ones we have on Green Lifestyle Market. Yes, I own the store, but still, they’re expensive. They’re amazing, and we’ve had nothing but very happy customers, but we’re not well off. A full-size latex mattress at full price would be $2,602.00.
When I got an email from Patrick Gunther, Latex For Less Marketing Director, asking us if we’d like to try out a mattress, and keep it free of charge, I jumped at the chance. When he asked me what size I wanted, I must admit I tried really hard to justify giving the kids our mattress and ordering a new king for ourselves. As I pondered this possibility that night the dip in my mattress felt more like a ravine. But in the end, I decided to do the right thing. The king wouldn’t have even fit in our kids’ room. I ordered the full size.
We got the Latex For Less mattress. When the mattress arrived, it was in a huge box much like how our previous foam mattress had arrived, but with one massive difference. This thing was heavy! It took me a lot of effort getting it up the stairs! It’s a two person job for most. But even better than our foam mattress, when released from its cocoon it took perfect shape in moments as if it had never been wrapped as it were. And so I laid down. I kid you not, this is the nicest mattress I have ever laid down on. And I have tried a lot, including a latex one.
No odor. Perfect support. High-quality construction. It really is a great mattress. Normally my wife and I have very different taste in mattresses and what constitutes the right amount of give. But with this mattress, it feels like it supports me the exact right amount, and my two kids and my wife feel the same.
I take naps now.
In an effort to give a fair review, I took a nap in my kids’ room. I slept a little too well. And I am struggling not to make a habit out of it. I’m a busy guy, but that mattress calls to me!
The mattresses are made with 100% natural latex, 100% organic cotton, and 100% pure natural wool. They are made in America and they are affordably priced. At a little over a grand, my wife and I are saving for our own king-sized.
Our 100% all-natural latex mattress is 100% natural, botanical latex that is sustainably harvested from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree. It contains no chemicals and provides a buoyant, cloud-like sensation for the ultimate sleep experience.
They are made in America, and the mattress is reversible, “medium on one side and medium-firm on the other side.” We picked the firm side.
Flame retardants are a big problem with the mattress industry, but this company uses wool, a natural flame retardant, for the fire barrier. They offer a 120 day trial,

I asked about the wool, and they said “Our 100% pure natural wool comes from the Woolgatherer Carding Mill in sunny California.
Woolgatherer follows wool through every stage from the pastures to the finished product. Their staff is meticulous about creating the best product possible and following industry-leading principles for sustainability and quality.
