We recently tested the Nestled latex mattress topper to address a problem: a mattress that is too firm. So we looked for a solution to make the mattress softer without adding warmth, which is what happens with a lot of memory foam toppers. Natural materials like latex tend to be more breathable than foam.

Nestled Mattress Topper Sleep Trial and Warranty
You have a 30 day trial and Nestled will cover the return shipping charges within the 30 day trial period for undamaged returns. To make sure your topper isn’t damaged, get a mattress protector like Coop brand and put it over your topper and mattress. To keep it clean don’t sleep on this topper until you have it covered with a waterproof mattress protector. Bonus: it also protects your mattress.
Nestled natural latex toppers have a 5 year warranty. This Limited Warranty does NOT cover the following: Damage to the product due to improper handling of the mattress or from burns, spills, body fluids, etc.
Price for a queen: just over $238 at time of writing, which is amazing for a value priced organic latex mattress topper. You can save by opting out of the organic cover. Check current price.
We recommend, if you have the budget, instead of opting out of the cover, add the knit cover or the quilted cover with wool. These aren’t options on Amazon (find them here) but as you can see the cover is very lightweight, even see through. The quilted cover will even out any small inconsistencies that may come with this natural product. And it will add some additional cushion to your bed.
Is natural latex safe?
If you’re looking for a more nontoxic mattress topper or living, natural latex is an excellent choice. It is not treated with harmful chemicals such as pesticides or formaldehyde. However, it’s not safe for everyone. Some people have an allergy to latex, so it won’t be a safe choice for them.
Is latex better than memory foam?
Latex has a unique feel that’s not like memory foam. You don’t sink into it as much. As far as the feel of latex compared to memory foam, it’s matter of preference. You won’t feel that hugged feeling that you get from memory foam.
How thick should a latex mattress topper be?
Nestled latex toppers come in two thicknesses; 2 inch or 3 inches. Back sleepers will probably be ok with a 2 inch but side sleepers concentrate more weight on their shoulders and hips. We need more cushion. So we’d get a 3 inch. Your weight also affects what to choose. This guide is helpful:
Latex comes in different densities. Nestled offers 3 densities: soft, medium or firm. Most commonly people use soft or medium to soften a mattress.
A firm density is ideal if you are trying to fix a sagging mattress and you want to get a few more years a life out of it. Note that it will still take some of the shape of the sag but it will at least give you quite a bit more support.
Why You Need a Cover for Your Latex Topper
One thing that we liked about Nestled is that you get a cotton cover included with your latex topper. This is important. We recommend that you get a mattress topper with a cover to protect the latex from tearing and breaking off. Some mattress toppers charge extra for a cover but Nestled doesn’t (unless you get an upgraded one).
The cover was pretty thin but has a zipper so you can remove it. You’ll get a more substantial cover with on their website, here.
