New Avocado Green Organic Crib Mattress Flips Over to Turn it from a Baby to a Toddler Bed

By | Baby Mattress | No Comments

Avocado green mattress logoAvocado Green Mattress has a new addition to add to their line of nontoxic mattresses and accessories – a baby mattress! And they may be the only online mattress company that has a children’s book. Fitting with their brand, all profits from the book, which has an environmental theme, will be donated to 1% for the Planet.

Thanks for shopping through our links as it helps support our small business.

Avocado Organic Crib Mattress

Like the rest of Avocado’s mattresses, the Avocado organic crib mattress is gorgeous. It’s also created to go from baby to toddler bed. One side is more firm, for infants who need that extra support. Flip it to the other side for a tad softer feel – ideal for toddlers who can move their heads and bodies around more. As with all Avocado mattresses, it’s handmade in Los Angeles.

Avocado Toddler Mattress

Crib Mattress Size

Fits standard cribs and is 6 inches deep and 28 inches across. The bundle of joy is 52 inches long and weighs 36 lbs. Mom and baby are doing great!

What it’s Made of

In addition to 170 cotton-wrapped pocketed innersprings which are encased in unbleached cotton, there’s organic certified wool, organic certified flax pads; organic certified coco-fiber perimeters infused with organic latex for strong edge support; resilient organic certified natural dunlop latex foam; and organic certified cotton ticking. Cotton is GOTS organic certified.

How much is the Avocado Organic Baby Mattress?

The Avocado Organic Baby Mattress costs $1,249 and has an option to finance with Affirm. If you quality you can get the mattress now and get 0% APR and payments as low as $76/month.

A Farm to Bedroom Mattress

Avocado has taken the concept of farm to table that’s popular in the food niche and applied it to making mattresses. Most mattress brands don’t make their own products, rather they’re made by a different manufacturer (or several). Avocado mades their own, from farm to bed in their GOTS organic certified factories in Los Angeles. They co-own the factory in India where the GOLS Dunlop latex is processed and control more than 4,000 acres of family-run latex plantations. In addition they ethically raise more than 150,000 native Gaddi sheep on 40,000+ hectares of organic certified pastures in the Himalayas.

No Polyurethane Foams, Glue, Flame Retardant or Chemicals

There are no petroleum-based polyurethane foams, chemical adhesives, vinyl waterproofing, polyurethane, polyethylene or flame retardant chemicals in this Organic Crib Mattress. Instead, they use 100% organic wool as a natural fire retardant and interior needle tufting. Keeping with the theme of no plastic or polyurethane, the baby mattress protector is made of certified organic cotton too. That means more washing and the company recommends you buy 3 so that you can change them out as needed.

If you’re unsure about your purchase at all, you may want to get a waterproof incontinence pad to put under where baby is sleeping.

GREENGUARD GOLD CERTIFIED

Babies sleep more than adults, which means that they spend more time near mattresses that can emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and EDCs (Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals). Studies show these emissions are linked to neurodevelopmental issues, childhood obesity, asthma, and other conditions. That’s why our organic crib mattress is GREENGUARD Gold Certified for low emissions. It’s been tested in environmental chambers to meet the world’s most rigorous emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants. Few crib mattresses qualify for this gold standard.

100% GOTS Organic Certified Wool

Carbon Neutral Production & Shipping

25 YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY

100 DAY SLEEP TRIAL – but the company states that the crib mattress must be sanitary and undamaged to be eligible.

As of this writing Avocado does not sell the crib, but we wouldn’t be surprised if that was the next addition to the Avocado Green mattress family.

Box Spring & Mattress for Very Low Bed

By | Bedding, platform beds | No Comments

Are you looking for a box spring and mattress that is lower to the ground? Today’s beds are made so they don’t require a box spring (they’re difficult to ship if made of metal springs). Really, you just need a flat surface to set your mattress on.

Mattresses and box springs can add a lot of height to a bed. But what if you want a shorter bed? We have options for you!

Some mattress brands sell foundations and frames with their bed in a box options that you may look at but we recommend  Wayfair. Why? They just have so much more selection. Plus you’ve got to love FREE Shipping on thousands of items at Wayfair. In addition, Wayfair makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. Sort by height, type of material, size, price and ratings so you don’t waste your time searching for the perfect fit. If you want to buy now and pay later, Wayfair has financing options too.

Search for Thin Mattress, Box Springs and More

Low profile mattresses – under 6 inches deep.

Low profile box springs – typically 2-5 inches off the ground and have metal springs inside.

Low profile foundations – these are box spring replacements that you place your mattress on and they’re firmer than box springs. Some foundations can be folded.

Low profile platform beds – a simple bed frame that doesn’t require box springs – they often have slats and may include a  headboard and/or footboard.

Note that when you shop through our links, we may earn a commission at no cost to you.

Why Buy Low Profile Box Spring and Mattress?

A low profile box spring (or low profile foundation) reduces the height of your box spring (or foundation) and mattress. Standard box springs are 9 inches high. Then add a bed frame that can add another 7 inches. Mattresses themselves can be 15 inches deep or more. That totals over 30 inches off the ground – 2.5 feet.

Additionally, you can choose to skip the box springs altogether and just get a foundation. Then just put your thin box mattress on the foundation, no box springs required.

5 reasons you might choose a lower profile bed:

  1. Difficulty getting out of bed (like you’re disabled, shorter or a child). A thin box spring can make your bed lower and easier to get into.
  2. Bunk beds need enough room between your bed and the ceiling so you don’t hit your head!
  3. You’re a minimalist. A lower profile mattress and foundation that are close to the ground can give a simple, uncluttered aesthetic to a bedroom that’s clean and modern. In Japan, the futon is an example of a low profile bed that lies flat and doesn’t clutter the room.
  4. You move a lot or don’t have a lot of space. Lower profile beds may not be as heavy and some can even fold so you can store them when you don’t need them (like for a guest room).
  5. Budget is a concern. A lower profile box springs or foundation costs less.

Examples of Low Profile Beds

Here are lower profile box springs, beds and mattresses:

Dreamcloud Mattress Softens Up and Changes Mattress Cover

By | Mattress | No Comments

DreamCloud mattress is unique in the top has tufting that forms small clouds or squares. However, that recently changed.

The new version of DreamCloud doesn’t have tufting. Instead it’s a quilted euro top style. It looks a lot like the Nectar cover, but it has the same color and pattern as before. While it looks more formal and elegant, some people didn’t like the tufting design because their arms or legs went to the seams of the pillow top.

The left side is before – you can see how high the pillows are. The right side shows the more quilted, flatter design. The color is the same (the photos are taken in different light).

Dreamcloud cover before and after

The next change is in the firmness. Overall, Dreamcloud was more firm than the name suggests. Instead of being on the firmer side of medium, you’ll now sink in more. This change puts Dreamcloud in the medium range.

You can read more about the exact changes with the construction below. But first, here are 9 quick facts about DreamCloud…as usual there are affiliate links in this post and we may earn a commission if you shop through our links.

DreamCloud Mattress 2.0 Changes

Removing latex, changing the cover to eliminate tufting and how the trial period works are notable changes. Photos to be forthcoming.

  • Less layers – going from an 8 layer bed to 6 layers.
  • No longer offer a twin size (only a twin xl).
  • No more tufting, instead the cover will be quilted but the Euro top is still 1.5″ thick.
  • Took cashmere out of the cover.
  • No longer has latex.
  • The only memory foam is on the third layer – 1.5″.
  • 365-Night Trial is now a risk free trial that officially begins 30 days after the date of the delivery (rather than immediately). Studies show that it takes 30-60 days to adjust to a new mattress.
  • Prices start at $999 for a queen. Financing is available so you have a low monthly payment. You’ll know if you qualify for 0% interest within minutes when you apply through their website. Check current prices here.

As always, to avoid voiding your warranty do not cause physical damage to your mattress. Tears, burns, stains, cuts or liquid damages will void your warranty so be sure to get a mattress protector.

9 Facts about the DreamCloud Mattress

HeroBed Mattress Review: A Mattress with a Cause + Save $400!

By | Mattress | No Comments

Over 230 lbs or Pregnant? Or if you just like a more firm feel, check out HeroBed. It’s a new mattress that will not only solve your sleep issues, but it has a good cause too.

Be sure to keep reading because we have an incredible HeroBed discount code for you.

HeroBed Mattress Review

Before we get into the details, know that most of the reviews (pre Sept 2019) are for a different mattress by the same name that has since gone out of business. So if you see other HeroBed reviews, just know that the only one you can buy now is the one that looks like this:

HeroBed Mattress ReviewMattress provided for purposes of this review and we may earn a commission if you shop through our links.

It comes in a duffle bag like this which is much easier to move compared to a box. It has handles on each side and unzips at the top.

HeroBed Mattress Commercial

HeroBed has a really funny commercial where they test their bed against other popular online mattresses in a box brands. They have a line of real pregnant people and dads who just look like they are. But after sleeping on it I get it. It’s really quite supportive and something you need if you don’t want back pain when you’re pregnant.

At first I was totally confused why HeroBed started out their ad with pregnant women. But after sleeping on it, I get it. This mattress is more supportive than average. Really anyone who’s heavier will appreciate that extra support.

HeroBed Layers

Here’s Pablo describing what a HeroBed is made of:

2 inches of HeroFoam

1 inch of Talalay Latex

Pocketed coils

A base foam layer for support

The bed is a total of 12 inches deep.

HeSo with 3 layers of foam between you and the pocketed coils, you have cushioning but feel the more firm coils.

Mattress Mattress Vending Machine

I got to go to the factory in Utah where the HeroBed is made. While there, I got to meet Pablo, one of the owners. He started a retail mattress store in Utah that’s been very successful and has multiple locations. Then he saw the “bed in the box” trend and wanted to focus on that market.

Best mattress for heavy back sleepers?

Fact: The #1 reason people return a bed is that it’s too firm

Fact: firmness is subjective. For example, I think HeroBed is medium firm while someone else thinks might think it’s firm. Even two people from the same family can disagree! On this mattress, I found it more firm than most bed in a box brands.

Firmness comes down to the level of sinkage. You might love the feel of sinking into your bed, but find it too hot and almost impossible to move around once it warms up.

HeroBed is ideal for people who like or need a more firm bed. It has that lying on the mattress feel. So if you weigh 230 lbs or more AND you sleep on your stomach or back this mattress is great.

Heavier sleepers need additional support. With softer beds, you’ll sink through the softer layers more than someone who is lighter. Memory foam is known for being difficult to move around on and it gets warm with body heat. These issues are more pronounced in heavier sleepers.

This mattress is the best fit for back sleepers or combination (people who move around a lot).

HeroBed Mattress Trial and Warranty

HeroBed lets you try their mattress for 180 nights and if it’s not for you, return it for a full refund. It has a 15 year warranty.

The Cause: Why It’s Called The HeroBed

Now why is this called a HeroBed? It’s because when you buy a hero, you help everyday heros get a bed. For every 2 beds sold they donate 1 bed to charity.

But this is more than a marketing gimmick. It’s a commitment to help our own heroes. Your cheap mattress from China isn’t helping people who need a bed is it??

HeroBed covers come in 3 different colors. The bottom part is either gray, blue or pink. It may be the world’s first pink mattress! I think I’d buy one just for that reason. But each color represents a type of charity who gets the donation.

Pink – goes to support cancer research
Blue – for military and veterans
Gray – children’s care

HeroBed charities

I Wanna Be a Hero!

HeroBed carries Malouf mattress protectors. It’s a good idea to get one. Anytime you buy a new bed, buy a mattress protector too. It’ll extend your bed’s life and it’s a lot easier than washing a mattress. Plus it helps extend the life of your mattress. If liquid, food or other substances get inside the foam it can create bacteria and degrade the foam faster.

Is it Better to Buy 2 Twin XLs Mattresses than One King?

By | Mattress | No Comments

Why Get 2 Twin XL Mattresses Instead of a King

If you sleep with someone else, it’s much better to buy 2 twin XLs as we’ve explained below. If you’ve tried it this way, you will never go back to a king mattress again. And you’ll wish hotels had this option!

Here’s how: get a mattress topper to go over both of your twin mattresses. You won’t even notice the center seam down the middle. It will feel like one bed. Except for the fact that your mattress won’t get the sag and your partner’s movements during the night will not be nearly as annoying (keeping you awake). Plus when they get out of bed to go to the bathroom, you will sleep right through it.

But you’ll still be sleeping in the same room (ok, we can’t stop snoring, except suggest an adjustable bed).

Plus when you move, turn and flip on your bed, it’s much easier with 2 twins. This will save you from getting a hernia trying to rotate and\or flip a king. There are affiliate links in this post – thanks for shopping through our links.

Split King Sheets

Get twin XL fitted sheets and a king size sheet for the top and use king size blankets to feel more like you’re sharing one bed. Or don’t because you don’t want to share the covers! But do get a king size duvet so that the bed looks well made. Or, save the hassle and your cash and get these highly rated split king sheets in bamboo or microfiber fabric.

Bestselling Twin XL Mattresses

Two twin XL mattresses make up a regular king size mattress. You can buy one king size frame and put the mattresses side by side. That helps it feel like one bed but doesn’t have the drawbacks.

3 Mattresses Advertised as Medium that are Actually Firm

By | Mattress | No Comments

The #1 reason a mattress you buy online is returned is because of comfort. Either your mattress is too soft or it’s too firm. And most people say the mattress is too firm. Also note that pain is a top reason – however, that’s so broad that it’s tough to know just what caused the pain or what kind of pain.

#1 Reason People Return a Mattress

This chart from Sleep Like the Dead shows that too firm is the most common complaint.  It’s far more common for people to think that a bed is too firm than too soft. Our experience talking to customers backs this up.

Remember that online, people can return a bed for almost any reason. People might say they’re returning it because it’s too firm but really they had some unexpected bills and want their money back. Or, they don’t really want to say why. There’s no fee or penalty so you don’t have to justify your reason.

study why mattresses get returnedI’ve slept on many beds and am the first to acknowledge that firmness is subjective. Even reading through Consumer Reports ratings it seems like firmness on beds I know well doesn’t match up. I’m certain Purple mattress isn’t a 4/10 (with 10 being the most soft). It’s more of a 5 or 6. To make things more confusing, a company might advertise a comfort level that doesn’t match the actual feel. So a model called firm might actually be quite soft and vice versa.

Here are 3 brands that seem like they’d be soft, but are actually quite firm. If you like a firm bed, we highly recommend them. They’re all excellent mattresses. Just don’t buy them if you’re expecting to sink into your bed. You won’t very much. However, these mattresses provide a lot of support. And, you won’t get stuck in your mattress and overheat during the night!

These are hybrids, which means they have a combination of foam and springs.

Top 3 Firm Beds

These are unexpectedly firm. In other words, you think they’re going to be softer than they are. Note that we use affiliate links below and could earn a commission when you shop through our links. 

Awara (firmest of all)

If you like the idea of a more green or natural mattress, Awara fits. It features natural and organic latex along with coils. However, you also need to like a firm bed because it doesn’t have a lot of give. I give it an 8/10.

Price for a King: $1,199

DreamCloud

DreamCloud mattress has tufting and pillowy clouds on the top layer. There are handles on the sides to help you maneuver the mattress on your frame. However, your thoughts of sleeping on a cloud are not really accurate.

This bed is quite firm. I give it a 7/10.

Price for a King: $1,199

Visit Website

HeroBed

At first you think the new HeroBed is going to be soft, but sleep on it very long and you’ll discover it’s more firm. You can choose the charity your mattress supports and get the corresponding color. Covers are either gray, dark blue or pink. It’s about a 7/10 for firmness.

Price for a King:  $1599 – but you can take $400 off with code UNBOX, making it $1,199.

Visit Website

Amazingly enough, they are all the same price!

Which one should you choose? Narrow it down by features and budget. Then do a sleep test. That’s a huge advantage of buying online. You have several months to test to see what you think. If it doesn’t work, return it for a full refund and try the next one on your list.

Have you returned a mattress? What was the reason? Also comment below if you’ve slept on one of these 3 mattresses – did you find them quite firm too?

Nectar Mattress Gains 468% in Sales for 2018, Online Sales Grow Faster Than Traditional

By | Mattress | No Comments

Nectar Sleep LogoNectar Sleep had a good year last year.

While Nectar was not the #1 fastest growing online mattress retailer in 2018, the company’s growth was higher than the other top 4 brands. By a long shot. According to Furniture Today, “Nectar posted a stunning 468% sales gain in 2018, to $250 million.” Can you imagine? What an incredible growth rate! They’ve got to be celebrating that victory.

Interestingly enough, Nectar has just one model of mattress. All foam. No lux version, no hybrid, just the original Nectar. Instead, they have completely different brands to address other market segments (i.e., DreamCloud and Awara).

How does the overall growth in boxed brand sales compare to traditional mattress retailers? “In 2016 the Top 15 bedding e-tailers were up almost 103%. In 2017 that group had a growth rate of 66%. And now we know the Top 15 had a 41% growth rate in 2018.” While traditional retailers grew growth for the Top 25 traditional bedding retailers was just 2.1% in 2018.

Note there are affiliate links in this post and Unbox Mattress may earn a commission should you shop through our links.

Nectar Mattress is a 10 inch deep memory foam and foam mattress with a quilted memory foam cover. It is medium firm and has the longest trial period of 1 year, plus a forever warranty. That incredible trial and warranty no doubt had an impact on sales.

Nectar offers 0% financing with Affirm so you can sleep on a Nectar now and pay for it in low monthly payments. Always protect your mattress before you sleep on it and to ensure your warranty or possible return is not voided. Nectar makes a quilted mattress protector.

Other mattress retailers by percentage growth include, Amazon, with a 50% increase. Casper, which was up 31%, and Purple which was up 52% last year. Maybe you haven’t considered Amazon or Wayfair as top contenders, but Wayfair sales tied Amazon, at 50% growth.

Bestselling Mattresses on Amazon

What should traditional retailers do when faced with such stiff competition from etailers? Do what Mattress Firm does and come out with your own online bed in a box brand – in their case, tulo. Like the foam mattress brands mentioned above the target market is a younger, value-oriented customer.

Mattress Firm also has enough locations that if you do want to test it out in person you can yet it comes in a box. The way it works is when you click this link Try tulo In-Store at Any Mattress Firm Location it shows locations near you. Then you can go try a tulo and get it in a box if you like it.

Doze low profile firm mattress

Cheap Low Profile Firm All Foam Mattress Under 12 Inches Thick

By | Mattress | No Comments

Someone asked a question recently. She was looking for a firm mattress less than a foot thick. And she wanted it to be all foam, not a hybrid. Most brands sold online that come in firm are 12 inches thick or more. In addition, she’s on a budget and didn’t want to spend over $300. So we went looking for a lower profile mattress that fit her request and boy did we find one!

Note that there are affiliate links in this post.

7 Inches Deep Firm Mattress

This isn’t a brand we’re very familiar with but it’s called Dreamfoam Bedding, which is owned by Brooklyn Bedding (which we’ve heard of). The model is called Doze. It comes in a 7 inch, 9 inch or 11 inch. However, only the 7 inch is firm. The 9 inch is medium and the 11 inch is medium soft. So they get more plush as you add inches to the height of the bed.

You can use these shorter mattresses on bunk beds, trundle beds and more.

Price of Doze 7 Inch Mattress

Doze comes with a 120 day trial and a 10 year warranty. Best of all you can’t beat the price! And it’s not from China either – it’s made in the USA. It’s not a luxury bed but ideal for kids, RVs, guest rooms and more. A queen 7 inch mattress is just $174! And financing starts at a low $15/month. Amazingly enough shipping is free.

Doze Sizes

Unlike most mattresses, Doze doesn’t come in a king or cal king. Rather, it comes in the following sizes:

  • twin
  • twin XL
  • full
  • full xl
  • queen
  • short queen

Doze Prices

A twin size Doze mattress starts at a very affordable $109.

This chart breaks down prices and sizes for you:

Doze Comes in an Unusual Size!

This is the first time we’ve seen a full xl. What’s the difference between a full and a full xl? The full xl is an additional 5 inches longer than a regular full! So a full XL is the width of a full and the length of a queen. The dimension are 54″ x 80″.

Full XL Bed Frame

In case you decide on the full xl, Dreamfoam doesn’t carry that size in a bed frame. Here is a basic frame that comes in full xl that we found on Amazon:
