HOW YOUR SLEEPING ORGANIC LATEX MATTRESS IS PERSONALIZED
Over the past decade and more, we’ve worked to create the most personalized 100% natural latex mattress available today. It’s personalized because you create the feel you desire by selecting the firmness of each latex mattress layer when you build your mattress. Below, you’ll find the four main factors we consider when recommending your perfect natural latex mattress configuration through our personalization form. In each section, you’ll also find recommendations of our most popular latex mattress configurations for each factor, like the best natural latex configuration for side sleepers.
|Latex Type + Firmness||ILD Rating|
|Dunlop Extra Firm||45+|
1. Desired Mattress Firmness
A major benefit of Sleeping Organic is that each layer inside of the organic cotton cover or encasement is customizable. While many latex mattress, hybrid latex mattress, blended or synthetic latex mattress, and memory foam mattress companies only let you choose from soft, medium, or firm for the entire mattress, we allow you to choose a firmness for each layer! Our dozens of options are what make Sleeping Organic, a truly customizable latex mattress.
Your bed will be built using multiple layers made up of different firmnesses. However, in these tabs we’ll give you a general overview of what we’d recommend if this was the only factor to consider when ordering your latex mattress.
As a general rule of thumb, our 7 inch, 2 layer latex mattress is the most firm. Our 10 inch, 3 layer latex mattress is a medium feel. And our 13 inch, 4 layer latex mattress can be the softest. The more latex thickness you have the softer, the mattress we can create. This being said, we can also create a firm mattress using our 4 layer, 13-inch mattress.
Great for petite side sleepers and those specifically looking for an extra soft natural latex mattress, this configuration is what they mean when they say “sleeping on a cloud.” Extra soft mattresses have extreme pressure relief and a marshmallow-like feel that envelopes and cradles your body.
For those who want that extra soft, we recommend our 4 layer natural latex mattress or our 3 layer natural latex mattress with a 3 inch soft topper. For those who want extra extra soft, we encourage a totality talalay latex mattress, like the configuration below. For a completely personalized recommendation, click here.
100% Talalay Latex Soft
100% Talalay Latex Soft
100% Talalay Latex Soft or Medium (Soft if under 145 pounds)
100% Talalay Latex Medium or Firm (Medium if under 145 pounds)
A soft latex foam mattress configuration is for you if you love a soft feeling mattress, but not so soft you sink deeply into the mattress. Our soft mattress gives you ability to sleep on your side with ample cushion for your hips and shoulders.
Remember: because your mattress is 100% personalized and built with personalized layers, you can make your natural latex mattress more firm by rotating a more firm supportive layer, upward, toward the top of the sleeping surface for a new comfort layer.
Most folks prefer a medium feeling natural latex mattress, making this our most popular firmness. Medium-feeling beds provide a gentle sleeping surface that leaves room for proper support.
Not too soft, not too firm, just a perfect medium. The middle path as the Buddha would say…
100% Natural Talalay Soft
100% Dunlop Medium
100% Dunlop Firm
A firm natural latex mattress is for you if you want a firm and supportive feel, but not as hard as the floor! A back sleeper’s first choice, latex mattresses built to be firm generally include more dunlop latex layers because dunlop latex is more supportive than Talalay latex.
Remember: because your natural latex mattress will be custom-built, we advise you order a less firm configuration than you think you may need. We recommend this because you can always make our mattress more supportive and firm by simply moving the base layers upward.
100% Dunlop Medium
100% Dunlop Firm
100% Dunlop X-Firm
Extra firm dunlop mattresses are best for someone who knows they’re looking for something extra, extra firm and has no hesitations about it.
If this sounds like you, then go for it! We recommend sticking with either a 2 or 3 layer bed, with a mix of dunlop firm and dunlop extra firm for the layers, like the sample here (our most popular extra firm).
The #1 Latex Mattress For Every Type of Sleeper
Sleeping Organic means side, stomach, back, and toss-and-turners will all find their perfect night’s sleep.
2. Sleep Position
Your sleep position has less to do with how you want to sleep and more to do with how your body needs to sleep. That’s why whether you’re a side, stomach, or back sleeper matters a lot to us when we recommend your natural latex mattress setup.
In these tabs, we’ll give you an overview of what firmness each sleeper type needs, then one of our popular configurations for each sleep position. We recommend you use our natural latex mattress personalization form here, but these samples are a great guide!
If you’re a side sleeper, you’re in good company. Over 60% of Sleeping Organic customers are side sleepers and our co-founder Brandon happens to be one too.
Side sleepers generally prefer a softer top comfort layer that allows your shoulders and hips to sink into the bed.This helps alleviate pressure points and promotes spinal alignment. The natural latex mattress configuration you’ll find here is our #1 all-time best-seller, have at it side sleeper!
100% Talalay Soft
100% Dunlop Soft
100% Dunlop Medium
Stomach sleepers prefer a supportive top layer but also want the natural latex mattress to have some give…
Generally, people aren’t on their stomachs for their entire sleep cycle, so this personalized multi-layer sleep system allows us to build an organic latex mattress for those toss-and-turners out there! This configuration below is a medium to firm configuration.
100% Talalay Medium
100% Dunlop Firm
100% Dunlop X-Firm
Back sleepers love latex foam mattresses because there aren’t any springs or lumps or pillow-top padding to create pressure points. The smooth, consistent support of the latex foam helps stabilize your back as you sleep.
If you’re a back sleeper, we recommend a firm natural latex foam mattress but not too firm. Our full-zip-off, organic cotton and natural wool cover, with interchangeable layers mean you can always swap rotate the layers around to increase support if needed.
100% Dunlop Medium
100% Dunlop Firm
100% Dunlop X-Firm
We love our mattress so much. Every night is good sleep for both of us. The mattress conforms to our bodies perfectly. We got two different firmness mattresses so my husband who is 220 and I, who am 110, can be supported. The customer service at sleeping organic is awesome as well. From helping us select the correct firmness to buying new sheets it has been a great company. We’ve loved the whole experience. The best sleep of your life is waiting. Enjoy!
3. Weight Range
Never ask a woman her weight, unless it’s in a private pure green mattress personalization form where the end goal is to design a completely personalized mattress. In those cases, we heard it’s okay…
Weight is an important factor in determining your personal latex mattress configuration, as the more you weigh the more material you compress and the softer the mattress feels. Lighter individuals exert less force on the natural latex foam, where heavier individuals exert more force.
If we put 100lb human and a 250lbs human on the same natural dunlop latex mattress, the entire mattress will feel softer to the 250 person every time. This being said, we give different configuration recommendations based on difference weight classes.
We love the flexibility of the different layer options. It has worked out great that we could split our King down the middle as my husband likes his side softer and I like my side firmer. Customer service worked hard to make everything flow smoothly with all of our questions. I have and will continue to recommend this bed and company to my friends and family.
4. Split Layers for Couples
If you and your significant other have different weight ranges, sleeping positions or firmness preferences, we can individualize and customize each side of the organic latex mattress to meet your own individual needs (for no extra charge)!
Don’t worry, you won’t notice a seam or divide in your latex foam mattress!However, if you and your partner are super cuddlers, we can always do a solid top layer to eliminate any fear you may have of a seam.
When you build your queen, king, or california king sized green organic latex mattress at the top of this page, look for the “Split” button to split any layer you’d like.
A Truly Natural All LAtex Mattress
Sleeping Organic is committed to only sourcing the most premium, certified organic, 100% natural materials available on Earth. To keep this promise, we’ve searched all over the world for the healthiest mattress fabrics. From organic wool and cotton to all the components included in your Sleeping Organic mattress.
Pure Latex Foam
At the core of our green organic latex mattresses is 100% non-toxic, non-synthetic foams, 100% latex from rubber trees.
You can customize whether you want 100% natural talalay latex or 100% natural dunlop latex for each layer, and for the entire latex mattress you can choose 100% natural or an upgrade to GOLS-certified organic dunlop.
We’ve included brief summaries about what these things mean in this section’s tabs.
Important for mattress shoppers: there’s a difference between all-natural, or just ‘natural’ and 100% natural latex in mattresses.
“Natural latex” is a blend of synthetic chemicals and 100% natural latex, while 100% natural latex is 100% free and clear of synthetics and synthetic materials. This distinction is more important than the difference between natural and organic latex because both 100% natural and organic latex is certified to be free of harmful chemicals found in most conventional and synthetic latex mattresses. On the other hand, “all-natural” or “natural latex” has synthetics and chemical additives added during the manufacturing process.
Like 100% natural dunlop latex, GOLS-certified dunlop is 100% natural and free of harmful chemicals. So, how are organic and natural latex different?
By law, organic latex must be certified by GOLS (the global organic latex standard), while 100% natural latex does not. Though there are regulations for 100% natural, they’re not as strict as the rules for certifying a product as organic. And due to the manufacturing techniques of talalay latex, certified organic GOLS latex is only available in dunlop.
Beyond the sustainability aspect of 100% natural vs. organic in latex, there is no difference when it comes to comfort or longevity of the product.
Talalay and dunlop are the two types of manufacturing processes used in manufacturing latex for use in mattresses after the rubber sap is collected from the rubber tree.
Talalay is the softer of the two, and gives more of a ‘cloud-like’ feel. It is also more expensive to manufacture which is why is cost more.
100% natural dunlop is the only type of latex that can be certified organic because the talalay manufacturing process uses ammonia and is not congruent with GOLS standards. Dunlop also comes in a 100% natural option.
All other factors being equal, dunlop is more firm and supportive than talalay. This is offset by dunlop being a bit more durable. That’s why we generally recommend dunlop for the bottom support layers of your latex mattress.
Full Zip-Off Natural Mattress Cover
The organic cotton cover is one aspect of a mattress most folks don’t consider until they set up their bed at home for the first time.
You could have the highest quality, certified organic latex, gots certified organic wool, certified organic cotton, sustainably-sourced materials in the world but if they’re surrounded by the wrong cover there’s no guarantee you’ll have the sleep cooler, comfortable, breathable sleep surface you’re looking for.
Naturally hypo-allergenic, our eco-wool, non-New Zealand wool will help keep you warm in the winter and sleep cooler in the summer by wicking away moisture. Organic wool and Eco-Wool has the innate ability to regulate body temperature, which makes it the best way to sleep cool at night.
Both of these benefits, as well as a natural fire-retardant, made it an obvious choice for the main material in our mattress encasement, which is sourced from hand-picked organic cotton farms across the United States. Even though it can be difficult to verify organic wool sources from small farms in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, we try and avoid importing organic wool from countries like New Zealand.
Sleeping Organic is committed to sourcing only certified organic cotton. This ensures that the cotton isn’t tainted by harmful pesticides, fertilizers or ecocides, which is important if you want a non-toxic mattress because cotton is the most heavily sprayed fiber with pesticides and industrial cotton is also heavily bleached…
A pesticide is an agent used to kill or otherwise adversely affect living organisms. So when you consider the average individual spends a third of their life on their mattress, it’s no surprise that traces of pesticides are found in human blood, breast milk and other bodily fluids. Not to mention, toxins in pesticides are known irritants for allergy sufferers.
GOTS is the Global Organic Textile Standard for textiles in organic mattresses. They are a regulatory body that oversee certifying most all green organic latex mattress manufacturers. We would like to state for the record that we are not GOTS certified. Our mission here at the Sleeping to offer the most organic mattress materials at the most affordable prices. We decline to pay for outrageous inspections and premiums to certify our facilities. If we did this we would have to raise our prices considerably and we would sacrifice our mission. Therefore, we do not associate ourselves with GOTS.
United States law requires that all mattresses pass a standardized burn test to ensure it will not burst into flames in the event of a residential household fire.
The most inexpensive way to “fire proof” or “fire retardant” a mattress is to use toxic chemicals that have been banned in Europe for decades but unfortunately this is what many mattress companies choose to do.
You don’t have to worry about that when you start Sleeping Organic. The fire barrier used in your Sleeping Organic latex mattress cover is made of wool and meets the US law (FR 1633) requirements. To create the fire barrier, wool fibers are woven into layers of batting then inserted between 2 layers of organic cotton.
We agree with whoever said: it’s the little things in life…
Since the best latex mattress is made of individual latex layers that can be re-arranged as your sleep needs change over the next 20 years, it’s important to have dependable access to the layers inside of the cover to be able to adjust and rotate your support layer and comfort layer.

My 5 star rating goes to my entire experience, the people at sleeping organic to the quality and comfort of sleep of which Im enjoying every second of. Thank you, Joe M. Pasadena, Ca
Guaranteed comfort & Support
Because we manufacture the Sleeping Organic mattress with organic materials in-house, we’re able to ‘remove the middle man’ and pass the savings on to you.
We don’t have the cheapest product on the market because we choose to source only 100% natural and organic fabrics and materials from sustainable sources. Nor do we have the most expensive latex bed on the market…
We do this by manufacturing all Sleeping Organic bedding in-house and choosing to only sell online. This way, we’re able to effectively ‘remove the middle man’ and pass the savings along to you, without sacrificing quality, health, or product longevity.
Unlike other mattresses that are made from petroleum and unsustainable materials, most all latex mattresses are amongst the most durable, natural bedding products on Earth. And beyond the rubber itself, your Sleeping Organic mattress is built to stand the test of time.
It’s the last mattress you’ll buy for the next 20 years. And because we’d rather see you refer us to friends and family than make a bed with such poor materials that you’re forced to come buy another in 2-5 years.
On top of our commitment to sourcing the world’s best materials like certified organic cotton and certified organic wool, our choice of sustainability over profit means we’re able to offer one of the industry’s best warranties: a 20 year warranty with the first 10 years full, and the second 10 pro-rated. For full warranty information click here
But what if you don’t love it? Aha! That’s where the 100 Night Sleep Trial kicks in…
When you start Sleeping Organic, you have one hundred nights from delivery to swap out a latex layer or two if you need to adjust your all natural latex mattress firmness.
And because the bed is built in layers, you can even adjust the firmness without sending any layers back. Just swap a middle layer with your top layer and the bed will instantly become more firm. For this reason, we recommend ordering your bed on the softer side of how you want it to feel. For our full sleep trial information, click here.
Because of the way we’ve built our mattress and designed our Sleep Trial, complete returns are rare. That said, if you hate it, we hate that you hate it too. You have 45 full nights to return your mattress or natural latex mattresses for a complete refund, no questions asked. For a complete outline of our return policy, click here.
Excellent & Comfy
Hours of research for healthy mattresses for our family led us to Sleeping Organic. Couldn’t be happier with our purchase and love the versatility of the layers.
Further Considerations for your new Mattress Set-up
- There are a few important organic details to review after you have decided about the right latex mattress configuration. These are bedroom items that if not chosen wisely can sabotage your toxic free oasis and organic bedroom set-up or lead to sleeping hot.
Another word for heavy duty box spring is foundation. Made by Sleeping Organic in the USA, we designed this foundation to be the best foundation to support a heavy latex mattress. It’s super important to make sure your foundation, wether its from us or not, will support the weight of a heavy latex mattress. Natural latex mattresses are much heavier than traditional mattresses and 80% of mattress sagging related issues are due to poor support such as a box spring or foundation’s slats bowing.
Our mattress foundation is made up of solid wood, with slats no more than 3 inches apart that provide a supportive surface for your Sleeping Organic mattress to lay on. It’s covered with organic cotton and wool.
Now, that you have the mattress and foundation squared away it is time to think about if you need a topper. If you like a pillow-top or soft-top mattress feel with support underneath it, a latex or wool topper is the best way to achieve that feel. With all the latex layers of your mattress inside of the mattress encasement, it is difficult to give it that plush top feel. In other words, all the latex inside of the mattress cover makes the mattress more firm than if there is a layer(aka topper) outside of and on top of the mattress.
Ok, now you’ve decided whether or not you need a topper. Almost there!
It’s important to keep your mattress clean and have a barrier between yourself, the sheets and the mattress. This helps with wear and tear and keeps the mattress clean. Your main consideration is wether to get a waterproof mattress protector or not. Rule of thumb here is generally, if you or someone sleeping on the mattress don’t have the potential to wet the bed then you don’t need to waterproof it. We carry a handful of mattress protectors, but our crowd pleaser is the Gotchya covered waterproof mattress protector
Think of it as a mini-insurance policy for your bed. Where you’re going, spills don’t stand a chance!
If you decide you don’t need waterproofing then you could opt for an organic mattress pad. These are more thick than mattress protectors which help provide a touch of softness while still providing all the protection you need to keep your mattress clean and limit wear and tear. Here’s a link to our mattress pads but we must say, our washable wool mattress pad is our favorite.
The next consideration is organic sheets. Organic cotton sheets are very important for sleeping cool. Many people don’t know this but the synthetic fibers in blended textile sheets make the bed sleep hot. Please do yourself a favor and make sure you have 100% cotton organic sheets. Also, all-white sheets are notorious for being heavily bleached cotton to keep that crisp white color. Instead of bleach, we use a peroxiding process to make and keep our organic cotton sheets white. Having good sheets with your natural latex mattress is a must. Check our selection of organic sheets out here
Ok! So you’ve got the mattress configured, supported, protected and wrapped in organic goodness. Now, on to the pillow. The pillow is the most underrated item on the bed. A good pillow, can make or break a good night’s sleep or be the culprit of neck or shoulder pain. Have you ever measured the space from your ear going out in space to the edge of the line that runs up from the outside of your arm? If not, you should. This is the amount of pillow space you need to be filled if you are sleeping on your side.
Fortunately, we designed one of our best-selling products of all-time, the Sleeping Organic shredded latex pillow is filled with the same premium latex foam you’ll find in our mattresses, but shredded. However, the pillow itself is customizable so you can take latex out to lower the loft, which is another point of personalization. In other words, you can adjust the height of our pillow to match the space between your ear and the outside of the top of your arm, for the perfect pillow thickness. Check out our latex pillow here.
Below are some of the most common questions we hear about latex mattresses and the Sleeping Organic process.
Yes, a rubber mattress and a latex mattress are the same. Because latex is made from the sap of a rubber tree, many folks refer to latex mattresses as rubber mattresses.
Synthetic, hybrid, and blended latex mattresses all contain harmful chemicals and are neither organic nor 100% natural. Many bedding companies falsely label these types of mattresses as ‘natural’ or ‘all-natural’ when in fact they contain the synthetics and fire retardants found in traditional mattresses.
A big benefit of sleeping on a latex mattress is that latex sleeps cooler than memory foam mattresses. And at Sleeping Organic, we’ve created a special cotton and wool cover that helps wick away moisture, provide air circulation which helps keep your sleeping surface cool. Check out the mattress cover section above for a more detailed explanation.
Known for their reliability, latex mattresses last much longer than normal beds. Depending on the quality of latex and other materials used to manufacture the bed, quality softer latex mattress layers will last you 10-12 years and more firm layers will last you 15-30 years.
Because of our confidence in our product, the Sleeping Organic latex mattress is covered under warranty for 20 years.

Our Certifications + Organizations
GOLS stands for the Global Organic Latex Standard. GOLS sets the standard for organic latex worldwide, determining which latex is actually organic and which is not.
Sleeping Organic latex carries GOLS-certified latex. It’s listed as step #4 in the mattress builder at the top of this page.
Also known as confidence in textiles, OEKO-TEK is an independent label for various textiles.
All organic textiles sourced by Sleeping Organic are tested for harmful substances through OEKO-TEK.
LGA is a global certifying agency who preforms tests for chemicals, toxicity, carbon foot print, water foot print and product life cycle assessments.
Originally a European certification, Eco-Institute’s services include manufacturing emissions testing and analyzing heavy metals, biocides, phthalates, fire retardants and more.
We’ve searched high and low to find the best 100% natural and organic bedding material sources in the world. On top of this, we only sell online which means we’re able to remove the traditional “middle man,” It’s our goal to give as many people as possible a 100% natural, personalized sleep. So instead of pocketing these savings, we choose to pass them along to you, making the Sleeping Organic mattress more affordable than other popular latex mattress companies.
Local mattress stores, and even many “bed in a box” online retailers offer incredibly low price-points, but the sacrifice is that the mattresses themselves are not 100% natural. In many cases, they’re not even ‘natural’ or ‘all-natural.’ We choose not to compete in this space because it would be impossible to offer a non-toxic mattress if we did so.
Your Sleeping Organic mattress comes with the latex foam layers, organic cover, and free shredded latex pillows as a gift to you. We’ll ship you the latex layers and all you have to do is unbox them, insert them into the cover, toss the pillows on the bed, and voila! It’s time to start Sleeping Organic.

Mattress Care & Protection
The natural latex foam mattress encasements, also know as our organic cotton covers are not able to be machine washed or dry cleaned. They will shrink! You need to treat your mattress encasement as you would a conventional mattress. You can spot clean with warm soap and water and air dry.
If absolutely necessary, the latex can be spot cleaned with warm soap and water, a white vinegar and water solution, or using a mild natural detergent.
Make sure the latex dries thoroughly before re-covering.
Do not put the latex in direct sun light as it can cause the latex to oxidize and prematurely break down at a cellular level.
We highly recommend a mattress pad or a mattress protector to help keep your mattress investment clean and protected. The main decision at this point, is whether to use a waterproof protector or not.
