Nolah mattresses are designed for maximum flexibility, offering multiple models from its collection. Each mattress boasts its own individual construction and feel; yet all share similar characteristics.
The Nolah Original 10 mattress does an exceptional job of isolating motion across its surface, helping you sleep peacefully without being disturbed by your partner’s movements or pressure relief issues. Furthermore, it receives high marks for pressure relief.
The original Nolah Mattress is a medium firm 10″ all-foam mattress available in both queen and king sizes. It comes packaged in an easy to carry box that you can transport into any room easily; once unboxed it takes roughly 24 hours for it to expand fully; handles are provided for transport on each side and the cover material features Botanic Origin Tencel to provide breathability and ensure optimal comfort.
The Nolah Original provides excellent edge support, outperforming other all-foam mattresses we have reviewed. It is hypoallergenic, using only foams certified as CertiPUR-US free from flame retardants such as PBDEs, TDCPP and TCEP – making it low VOC with no mercury lead or phthalates that fall under Consumer Product Safety Commission regulation.
Side sleepers generally find the Nolah Original is ideal for providing pressure relief and supporting spinal alignment, however heavier people may find it too soft and cause their hips to sink too deeply into it, creating an unpleasant sagging effect in their backs.
Stomach sleepers require less contouring and more support for an enjoyable night’s rest, which the Nolah Original provides well in terms of pressure relief; however, its soft structure may not offer sufficient stability for stomach sleepers who weigh over 230 pounds.
Nolah mattresses are an excellent option for couples looking for firm mattresses that provide adequate sex support. With low bounce and responsiveness, Nolah makes sexual activity enjoyable for both partners; however, its pressure relief score could be improved with thicker comfort layers.
The Nolah Original comes with a lifetime warranty covering manufacturing defects. However, it becomes null and void if used on a bed frame with gaps between slats exceeding five inches or an adjustable base.
The Nolah mattress is an economical solution for eco-conscious consumers seeking an all-foam mattress, boasting excellent support for both stomach and side sleepers, with moderate firmness suitable for back sleeping. Additionally, its durability makes it a suitable alternative to expensive brands such as Tempurpedic and Nectar.
The Nolah Evolution hybrid mattress features three firmness levels: Plush, Luxury Firm and Firm. Each option on this scale ranges between medium-soft to firm for added personal comfort while the firm option provides true medium firm support allowing sleepers to select a firmness level best suited to their body weight and sleeping position.
This model provides exceptional body support across all sleeping positions, but particularly excels at supporting those who prefer stomach sleeping. This is essential for stomach and back sleepers to avoid pain in their lower back, hips and proper spinal alignment – particularly important if sleeping together on one mattress! Additionally, couples sharing one mattress benefit greatly from excellent edge support that allows each person to stretch out on all surface area without fear of rolling off sides or edges.
One thing we liked best about the Nolah Evolution mattress is that there was no noticeable off-gassing when first opened up from its box. This can often be an issue when purchasing foam mattresses shipped compressed, as synthetic materials tend to hold onto certain odors before they fully air out over time.
The Nolah Evolution does an exceptional job of keeping sleepers cool during the night. Its euro-top cover features conductive fibers designed to draw heat away from the body, and polyfoam comfort and transition layers have an open-cell structure which promotes airflow. Furthermore, a 2-inch breathable gusset around its edge helps increase circulation.
Overall, the Nolah Evolution mattress is an excellent option for back and stomach sleepers who desire a medium-firm feel that provides adequate support in all sleeping positions. Side sleepers may also benefit from it; however it may be too soft for heavier individuals who prefer firmer mattresses.
Nolah Mattress offers an attractive partially prorated lifetime warranty to protect its durability, which covers repair and replacement costs as well as shipping/transportation charges for 15 years of ownership. After this point, owners must pay an optional $99 replacement fee before returning their mattress for replacement.
The Signature 12″ mattress puts pressure relief at the forefront of its design. It contains 2.5 inches of cooling Nolah AirFoam that should feel soft against your skin and conform to your curves, sitting directly beneath a luxury cotton cover designed to be cool to touch and moisture wicking.
This mattress utilizes a thick support core to promote spine alignment and decrease back pain, while its firmness should make it ideal for back and stomach sleepers who tend to sink too far into mattresses, leading to misalignments of spinal bones. Furthermore, its limited motion transfer should make this bed an excellent choice for couples sharing one sleeping area.
Due to its high-density foam, the Nolah Signature doesn’t allow excessive sinkage. With its medium firmness level and medium firmness level, this mattress makes an excellent fit for back and stomach sleepers who require comfort with support to keep a healthy posture while they slumber. However, for individuals weighing over 230 pounds who require adequate back support may find the Nolah Signature too soft; this could cause spinal decompression.
The Nolah Signature mattress’s limited motion transfer and excellent motion isolation should make it a suitable option for couples sharing sleeping space. Polyfoam is more responsive than memory foam, creating bounce that prevents motion from traveling across its surface and keeping couples sleeping peacefully throughout the night.
Once delivered to your home, this mattress arrives compressed for shipping. When unboxed and opened up, you must remove its plastic wrapping and allow the mattress to expand for 24 hours – during this process you may experience an initial chemical scent as it inflates. When fully expanded you can begin using your new mattress immediately! It comes certified by CertiPUR-US as being free from ozone depleters, PBDEs, heavy metals, formaldehyde, and phthalates as well as Greenguard Gold certification for low volatile organic compound emissions emissions for low volatile organic compound emissions emissions for low VOC emissions emissions for low VOC emission levels backed by a limited lifetime limited warranty!
The Plus Size
Nolah’s Evolution Comfort+ mattress may be perfect if you’re a heavier sleeper (up to 250 lb) who enjoys latex hybrid mattresses, with its 15″ mattress featuring 11″ profile and mix of latex foam and coils. In our tests, this mattress showed impressive cooling performance as well as moderate sinkage/contour depth, great bounce characteristics, fast response time/low motion transfer/excellent edge support when sitting or lying down.
The Nolah Original mattress features an adaptive AirFoam comfort layer developed by the company and designed to conform to body contours with some sinkage without trapping heat like traditional memory foam does – something hot sleepers may appreciate.
Next comes a transitional polyfoam layer to prevent excessive sinkage, followed by a 7″ core of high-resilience foam to provide support and comfortable responsiveness. Finally, the bed comes complete with an eco-friendly Tencel lyocell cover to complete its construction.
Notable about Nolah mattresses is their innovative packaging system which uses less plastic than most direct-to-consumer brands, which is good news. Furthermore, Nolah provides a generous 100-night sleep trial period and lifetime warranty as is typical among online mattress stores.
Nolah mattresses offer one of the industry’s strongest warranties, covering you against sagging, indentation and other structural issues for as long as you own it. In order to take full advantage of Nolah’s guarantee and maximize its potential benefits, however, an approved foundation or frame must also be used with your mattress purchase. Nolah suggests using standard frames, with or without slatted bases featuring no more than 5”-spaced slats spaced no more than an inch apart, for your mattress support system. Metal components should be avoided, as they can rust and compromise its integrity over time. If you decide to purchase a Nolah mattress, be sure to read and understand its warranty before making your decision.
