Love memory foam but hate how it starts sagging after just a few years? Nolah mattresses have been shown to last longer. They came out with the Nolah limited edition mattresses to give you the same quality as the original Nolah mattress for less.
Nolah was tested against other even highest quality memory foam to see how it compared as far as durability of the Nolah Air Foam™. It was rigorously tested with the industry standard ASTM Constant Force Pounding Dynamic Test. It’s a test that involves a robotic arm pounding down on the target foam 70 times per minute for a total of 100,000 cycles, which allows you to predict how much support and thickness will be lost over time.
The Nolah mattress foam was tested and found to be most durable when stacked up against even the highest quality memory foam by a LONG SHOT. Over 2600% less loss of thickness!! That translates into less sagging and longer life. Now there’s no way I can test this but they claim something like a Casper or a Leesa mattress will last about 5 or 6 years. But a Nolah, they say, lasts 10.

Nolah Limited Edition 10” Mattress Review
We reviewed a queen size 10” LIMITED EDITION Nolah Mattress. It was sent to me to review. I’m going to tell you how by buying the limited edition and something else can save you a total of about $200 on this mattress. That’s pretty significant.
One thing you need to know right off is that the only difference between the 10” limited edition and the 10” original is that the limited edition has a more basic cover and the PRICE. So right off, you save $102 by forgoing the fancier cover. The Limited Edition mattresses are the same exact mattress but instead of the thicker cover that has their brown thicker bottom and white top you get a simple all-white cover. Keep reading to find out how else to save.
Nolah Mattress Layers
This is basically a 3 layer mattress. The cover is basic white and it unzips but the company says to spot treat it only. We recommend that you get a waterproof mattress protector with your mattress. You can get a 12 inch version also. But the 10″ Nolah mattress has:
- 2” Cooling Nolah AirFoam™. AirFoam™ provides superior pressure relief, keeps you cool and contours perfectly to your body without trapping you “in the mattress” like memory foam.
- 1” Deep Supportive High-Resilience Foam support layer that is stronger and more durable than latex. It provides a healthy and responsive bounce to keep you sound asleep all night.
- 7” High-Density Base Foam of the best U.S. made high-density breathable base foam that reinforce the support and contouring of the toper layers. It’s durable and guaranteed to last for years.
The limited edition 10” Nolah mattress is 70 lbs – the same as the original 10”. Again, it’s the same mattress inside. And one way to know about quality is the weight of the mattress. You want to see above 50 lbs on a queen.
So this is right where it should be, based on the competitors in this space that you’ve probably heard of.
This mattress is a bit softer than other mattresses in this price range. It’s what I’d call medium soft while a lot of the others are medium.
You have 120 days to test out the mattress and if not happy, return it for a full refund.

Nolah Mattress Price
The Nolah mattress is priced right around where you’d expect for this thickness and type of bed, maybe a little higher but not by much. But if you agree to forgo your sleep trial, in other words, you don’t get to return the mattress, then you save $92 on a queen. Taking a queen down to a very reasonable $672 at the time of writing this review. Find this option listed with the accessories you can add to your order, like a mattress cover (which I think you should always buy) or pillows.
No matter what you choose you’ll get 2 FREE pillows when you buy any Nolah queen or king size mattress. These are promotional shredded foam pillows so they’re not for sale on the site.
Who’s this Mattress Best For?
I would buy this mattress if I was a lighter weight sleeper. If you’re heavier then it might not offer enough support. You’re going to need the 12” or deeper.
It’s also for someone who doesn’t want to sink in as much as traditional memory foam mattresses and who wants a longer lasting foam bed.
