Nolah Natural 11 Overview
- Pressure Relief: This mattress has a hybrid construction of foam that's made from Talalay latex and coils. As a result, the Nolah Natural 11 is able to fully cushion major pressure areas, like the hips and shoulders. This can help reduce back pain and improve sleep quality for people who suffer from these conditions.
- Hypoallergenic: The Nolah Natural 11 mattress is made with natural materials, such as latex and wool, that are naturally hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant, and it has a wool cover that provides additional protection. This helps reduce allergies and asthma symptoms.
- Spinal Alignment: The HDMax Tri-Zone Support Coils in the Nolah Natural 11 mattress are designed to help ensure great spinal alignment. These coils move independently of each other, thus allowing the mattress to conform to the body's curves, which can help reduce pressure points and improve comfort.
- Breathable: The Nolah Natural 11 mattress is also designed to be breathable and cool by using moisture-wicking materials such as Talalay latex and organic cotton covers.
- Expensive: The Nolah Natural 11 is a high-end mattress that is more expensive than some other mattresses on the market. However, it is also one of the best mattresses available, and it is definitely worth the price if you are looking for a comfortable, supportive, and cool mattress that can help relieve back pain and is suitable for all types of sleepers
Who we Recommend the Nolah Natural 11 for
- Hot Sleepers: Given that the mattress uses Talalay latex and a coil system, the Nolah Natural 11 is able to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night. This is especially beneficial if you often find it difficult to find a mattress that doesn't make you too warm.
- Couples: the Nolah Natural 11 is a good mattress for couples because it is medium-firm, made with natural materials, has a zoned support system, is cool, and comes with a 120-night sleep trial, allowing you to test if the mattress really suits your and your partner’s preferences.
- Those Who Suffer from Back Pain: The Nolah Natural 11 mattress offers a good balance of support and pressure relief, making it a good option for people with back pain. The Talalay latex layer in the mattress provides gentle contouring support that helps to reduce pressure points, while the coil system provides additional support for the spine.
Unboxing the Nolah Natural 11
Nolah understands that the delivery and unboxing experience can significantly affect the customer’s experience with the product. They aim to provide great delivery services by making their delivery and unboxing processes as convenient and hassle-free as possible for customers. That's why they ship their mattresses, including the Natural 11, compressed in an eco-friendly box that is easy to transport and unbox.
When your mattress arrives, you will simply unbox it and place it on your bed. The mattress weighs between 68 and 134 pounds, so you may need help lifting it. The mattress has handles on the sides to make it easier to lift.
We placed the mattress on the bed frame and removed the plastic wrapping. The mattress expanded to its full size in a matter of minutes, but it is best to wait a few hours for the mattress to fully expand.
The Nolah Natural 11 mattress has excellent corner expansion, which means that the corners of the mattress expand all the way to the very ends. This gives the mattress a neat and sleek look, and it also provides excellent support throughout the entire surface area of the bed.
Upon unboxing the Nolah Natural 11 mattress, we noticed a slight off-gassing, which is common with bed-in-a-box mattresses. The smell was moderate and came from the new natural latex, organic cotton, and wool. The off-gassing from this mattress is not as strong as that of foam mattresses and is not harmful. It will dissipate within a few days. You can help speed up the process by airing out the mattress in a well-ventilated area.
Firmness, Feel, and Comfort For Nolah Natural 11
Nolah Natural 11 Firmness
The firmness of a mattress is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a new mattress. A mattress that is too firm can be uncomfortable, while a mattress that is too soft may not provide enough support.
The Nolah Natural 11 mattress is rated a 6 out of 10 on a firmness scale, which is considered a medium-firm feel. This means that the mattress is supportive but still comfortable. Most people will find the Nolah Natural 11 to be a good fit, but heavier stomach sleepers may feel that it is a little soft.
Nolah Natural 11 Feel
The Nolah Natural 11 mattress is bouncy because of its strong coil system and responsive comfort layers. This means that you will feel like you are resting on top of the mattress rather than sinking into it. This is different from memory foam mattresses, which tend to be more sink-in.
The bounciness of the Nolah Natural 11 mattress makes it easy to move around and switch sleeping positions.
Nolah Natural 11 Comfort
We tested the mattress in a variety of sleeping positions to see how comfortable it felt. We found that the mattress was comfortable in all sleeping positions, including back sleeping, side sleeping, and stomach sleeping. Especially for back sleepers and side sleepers because of the coil systems and latex layer that create ideal firmness and cushioning.
However, it is important to note that your individual sleep needs may vary depending on your body type and preferred sleeping positions.
|Sleeper Weight||Back Sleepers||Side Sleepers||Stomach Sleepers|
|Lightweight (Under 150 lb)||Excellent||Excellent||Excellent|
|Average (150 – 250 lb)||Excellent||Excellent||Very Good|
|Above Average (Over 250 lb)||Excellent||Very Good||Good|
Constructions, Materials, and Design
Materials and Design
The Nolah Natural is an 11-inch thick mattress made with long-lasting, hypoallergenic, GOTS-certified, natural, and organic materials. It has a latex and coil core that provides support and body alignment, and a temperature-regulating wool and breathable cotton cover. The mattress also has quality wool and cotton-blend padding below the coil base layer for added durability.
To achieve exceptional performance, Nolah Natural 11 has seven layers that all come together to create a luxurious, and comfortable mattress.
Layer 1: Organic Cotton Cover - The Nolah Natural 11 mattress is covered in this durable, GOTS-certified cover that gives a luxurious, breathable, soft feel.
Layer 2: Organic Wool Layer - A cool and breathable wool layer that acts as a natural fire barrier and adds comfort, as well as helps to regulate temperature and wick away moisture.
Layer 3: Talalay Latex Comfort Layer - A 2-inch layer of pressure-relieving latex that provides optimal relief to pressure points.
Layer 4: Talalay Latex Transition Layer - A 1-inch layer of Talalay latex that adds more support to the mattress.
Layer 5: HDMax™ Tri-Zone™ Support Coil System - A 8-inch layer of coils that adds optimal support, responsiveness, and durability.
Layer 6: Organic Wool and Cotton Bottom Layer - This is where the coils rest, thus giving more support and durability to the mattress.
Layer 7: Organic Cotton Bottom Cover - At the bottom is also an organic cotton cover with handles that make lifting and moving the mattress a piece of cake.
Performance of Nolah Natural 11
Most hybrid mattresses are known for their good cooling performance. That includes the Nolah Natural 11, as it is made with layers of latex and pocketed coils, which are materials that do not retain heat.
Temperature regulation and cooling are essential features for people who tend to get too warm when they sleep, especially couples. That is because these features can help reduce the amount of heat generated between you and your partner sleeping in the same bed.
We conducted our standard cooling performance test to test the cooling performance of the Nolah Natural 11 mattress. This test involved lying down on the mattress for 20 minutes and measuring the temperature of the mattress.
During our test, we did not feel any heat retention or warming, which means that the mattress is breathable and stays cool. Which is why we gave the cooling performance a score of 5/5.
Responsiveness is a measure of how quickly a mattress returns to its original shape after you move on it. A responsive mattress will quickly spring back into place after you move, allowing you to move freely and sleep in all positions without feeling stuck or bogged down.
The Nolah Natural 11 is a responsive mattress because it is made with Talalay latex and pocketed coils. Talalay latex is a type of latex that is known for its responsiveness.
We assessed the Nolah Natural 11's responsiveness by placing a 20-pound ball on the mattress and then timing how long it took the mattress to return to its original shape after the ball was removed.
The mattress fully returned to its original shape in exactly 0.4 seconds, which is better than average mattresses and indicates that it is a very responsive mattress.
We gave the Nolah Natural 11 mattress’s response time a score of 5/5
Motion transfer is a measure of how much movement is transferred from one side of a mattress to the other when someone moves on it. Low-motion transfer is important for couples or light sleepers.
The Nolah Natural 11 mattress is designed to limit the amount of motion transfer that occurs. This means that if your partner moves around, you are less likely to feel it. Talalay latex and pocketed coils are used in the mattress, which helps to isolate motion. However, the natural responsiveness of latex and the bounce of the coils may contribute to mild motion transfer.
We assessed the mattress's motion isolation performance by performing two tests. In the first test, we placed a glass of water on one side of the mattress and dropped a 20-pound ball on the other. We then observe the glass of water on the other side of the bed for any motion.
During the first test, the water sloshed slightly due to the bounciness of the mattress.
In the second test, We rolled on one side of the mattress while our partners lay on the other side. They reported feeling minimal motion, which was not considered extreme.
Therefore, the mattress scored a solid 4.7/5 in our motion isolation tests.
The Nolah Natural 11 mattress has supportive edges that prevent sinkage and allow users to sleep comfortably on the entire surface of the bed. This is because the Talalay latex comfort system spreads compression over a wider area, and the pocketed coils help maintain the structure along the mattress's perimeter.
To test the edge support of the Nolah Natural 11, we conducted our standard edge ball sinkage test. We placed a ball on the edge of the mattress and observed a slight dip. However, the dip was not enough to cause the ball to roll off the mattress.
The mattress scored a solid 4.8/5 in our edge support test.
We conducted a noise test on the Nolah Natural 11 by dropping a heavy ball on it and listening for any squeaks or noises using our highly sensitive microphones.
We were surprised to find that the mattress made no noise whatsoever, even though coil mattresses are often known for squeaking. This is a great feature for couples who share a bed or for people who live in apartments or other shared living spaces.
With that being said, why we gave the Nolah Natural mattress a noise score of 5/5.
When evaluating a mattress for sex, we consider a number of factors, including bounce, cooling, edge support, and noise. The Nolah Natural 11 mattress provides exceptional sex performance because it is responsive, silent, and cool.
Couples looking for a mattress that is responsive and bouncy for sex will be happy to know that the Nolah Natural is the catch. It is easy to switch positions and move around on top of this mattress.
Therefore, the Nolah Natural 11 scored a strong 4.9/5 in our sex performance score.
Pressure relief is a major factor for many people when choosing a new mattress. A mattress that is good at relieving pressure can help reduce joint and back pain.
We used our pressure relief test to evaluate how the mattress responds to different sleeping positions. By taking a 20-minute nap on the mattress and then measuring the pressure in different body zones, we were able to determine the results of the test.
The pressure map below illustrates the findings of the test:
The pressure map shows that the Nolah Natural 11 is almost all blue-green, which indicates that it is a good option for people with back, shoulder, and hip pain and will provide good pressure relief in these areas. These results are exceptional thanks to the layers of organic wool and organic cotton in the mattress, which help provide pressure relief without compromising the mattress's natural state.
This is why the Nolah Natural 11 has an outstanding score of 5/5.
