Avocado Mattress Topper Review – Comfortable And Eco-Friendly?

Avocado Mattress Topper Review – Comfortable And Eco-Friendly?

Marten: Hey, guys, Marten here from Mattress
Clarity. Today, we’re reviewing the Avocado Mattress
Topper. It’s an all-natural latex mattress topper,
and I was a big fan of the original Avocado Mattress. I wanted to try this out for myself. I want to talk about the construction. I want to talk about who it’s a good fit for,
who it’s not a good fit for. Is it a good fit for you? Let’s find out. [music] Marten: I want to talk about the construction
of the Avocado Mattress Topper. If you want to see a list of my top picks
for mattress toppers, just Google “Mattress Clarity best mattress topper.” Starting on the outside here and then working
our way in, we first have an organic cotton cover, very, very soft to the touch, very,
very nice. Beneath that, you have a layer of organic
wool. Now, this is breathable, helps wick away moisture
as well, a good match for hot sleepers. It also has a little bit more bounce there,
too. On the inside, you have natural Dunlop latex,
two inches of that. It’s a foam. It’s very, very bouncy, very, very durable
as well. Finally, on the bottom side, you’re going
to have canvas. It’s going to help it from shifting around
too much on top of the mattress. You have two firmness options, too. You have plush and you have firm. I opted for plush because I’m more of a side
sleeper. Also, in terms of sizes, you have Twin, Twin
XL, Full, Queen, and California King. Now I want to talk about my experience with
the Avocado Mattress Topper. Talking first about firmness, to test this
out, I put it on top of the mattress that was close to an 8 out of 10. When I did that, it took it down to a 7 or
a 7.5 out of 10. Subtract it about one point of firmness. In terms of sleeping position, starting on
my back, a very, very nice match. A nice lumbar support, a nice contouring as
well, a great fit for back sleeping. Moving to my side, I pressed through it pretty
quickly, not feeling the best pressure relief for my shoulders and hips. I will say, if you are a smaller person than
me, you might feel better pressure relief than I did. Finally, moving to my stomach, no real effect. I had that nice latex feel, but I’m not sinking
at the hips, so it could be a decent match for stomach sleepers. Also speaking about feel, it’s latex. It’s bouncy so very, very responsive, very,
very easy to move around. Finally, speaking about warmth, this is a
big issue when you add a mattress topper to your mattress. It’s going to have you sleeping warmer or
cooler. Putting the Avocado on top of this mattress,
I didn’t sleep any hotter, and I think that was because you have natural latex, which
is cooling. You also have this heat dissipating wool in
there as well, so it didn’t cool me down, but I wasn’t sleeping warmer. Let’s talk about the pros of who I think this
mattress topper might be a good fit for. First, I think it’s a great choice for back
sleepers. You get some more contouring. It supports your lumbar area as well, definitely
good for back sleeping. Also, if you’re a hot sleeper, this could
be a good choice for you. It won’t cool you down, but it won’t have
you sleeping hotter either. On top, you have this wool. It’s going to be breathable. It’s going to help dissipate heat. Inside, you have the Dunlop latex that’s going
to be naturally cooling, and it’s ventilated as well. If you want an eco-friendly option, this should
be a good choice for you, too. It has organic materials in it, responsibly-sourced
wool, responsibly-sourced latex as well, so a good eco-friendly option. Finally, if you’re looking for something that’s
going to be longer-lasting, latex isn’t very durable so some mattress toppers may break
down over a couple of years. This one shouldn’t. Now, let’s talk about the cons of who I think
this mattress topper may not be a good fit for. First, I think side sleepers looking for some
extra pressure relief, they might not find it on this mattress topper. I pressed pretty far into it and didn’t feel
a lot of pressure relief in my shoulders and in my hips, so definitely keep this in mind. Also, if you don’t like that latex feel, I
would look elsewhere. This is very, very bouncy, very responsive,
very easy to move around, but I feel like that slower moving feel, I’d definitely check
out something with memory foam. Finally, if you’re looking for a value option,
I would look elsewhere, as well. This is $450 for a queen size. It’s natural-latex so if you want something
that’s more budget-friendly, I would definitely look elsewhere. In the end, I think the Avocado Mattress Topper
is a great choice for back sleepers and those who are looking for more of an eco-friendly
option. I will just say, if you’re looking for something
for a side sleeper or you’re looking for more of an affordable option, I would look elsewhere. At this point, you should know if it’s the
right mattress topper for you. If you’re still a little bit confused, you

  1. Hi Marten, I Googled “Mattress Clarity Best Mattress Topper” but could not find this content. Can you please reply with the link? Thank you!

  2. Hello–would you say that getting this topper in the FIRM style would help with the side sleepers? I look to be around your height and build and with our current mattress, I am now experiencing pain in my shoulders and back. Really would opt for a more natural, eco-friendly topper and this one seems to fit the bill, however, if it doesn't support correctly, we will have to look elsewhere. Thank you for your video. It was helpful.

  3. I sleep on my back and my side. I’m about 116 pounds – do you think the avocado topper would be an ok fit for me? I don’t like sinking feel of memory foam- but since I sometimes sleep on my side, won’t want something too firm.

  4. what would you recommend for a 175lb side sleeping dude on a Saatva mattress thats a bit too hard? I was thinking avocado but after seeing this video rethinking it… also thinking sleep on latex 3" soft. prefer more natural due to VOC

  5. I am a side sleeper that sleeps very hot. I tried the layla topper was too thin and I was still hot. Tried the Visco 4" copper topper, it sleeps very very hot. What can I do?

  6. Great review. I was so excited about this mattress topper until this review. I’m disappointed that it isn’t more pressure relieving for side sleepers. Marten, what do you suggest for very hot 🥵 sleepers with hip and shoulder pain? Thanks for your input and reviews! They are spot on. 👍🏾

  7. Hi. Lightweight side sleeper here weighing in at about 120lb. I don't like memory foam so definitely looking for latex. My mattress is firm and I really like it for back sleeping, but I recently developed apnea and so now have to sleep mostly on my sides, which is hurting my shoulders. What thickness and firmness would you recommend in a topper to get some pressure relief on my shoulders, but still maintain that overall firm support that I like? Thanks!
