The Aloha Sleep mattress from Nest Bedding could be a great budget-friendly option for anyone looking for a firmer foam bed. With cooling features built into the fabric and construction, those who sleep on their back or stomach should have no problem getting comfortable. Read on for my full review.
The Aloha Sleep mattress is made by Nest Bedding. Nest Bedding is a – you guessed it – bedding company that is family owned and specializes in factory direct products that ship right to you.
In addition to mattresses, Nest Bedding also sells organic sheets, natural and certified bedding and mattresses.
I recently had the opportunity to review their cooling mattress protector as well. You can read the review of it here.
In total, the Aloha Sleep mattress is 11” in height. Here is the breakdown of the layers:
In general, the materials used to make the mattress are high-quality. The densities in each foam layer are good and durable, which means the mattress should last you a long time as long as you care for it properly.
There is a 2” layer of cooling gel memory foam on top of the mattress. The foam is pretty responsive and will help to relieve pressure, although it may be too thin for side sleepers who rest on their hips and shoulders.
Underneath the gel memory foam layer is transition foam followed by an 8” base layer. These layers provide support and give the mattress an overall feeling of medium to firm.
I gave the mattress 30 days to let my body grow accustomed to the layers and to let it fully expand/breathe and soften up if necessary.
Over time there was a very slight softening in that first gel memory foam layer but overall it remained pretty firm.
You can see more about the firmness and foam responsiveness in this video:
The 2” of gel memory foam on the top of the mattress helps with motion isolation. The foam is very responsive, so it bounces back to its original shape shortly after you move off the bed.
To get a better idea, check out the motion transfer test I conducted in the video below:
The transition and durable base foam in the mattress help to keep the edges supported. You will sink slightly on the sides because of the memory foam on the top layer, but overall the edge support is decent.
Nest Bedding offers a 500-night free trial. This means you get more than a year to try out the mattress, and if you decide you do not like it you can return it for a full refund.
They do suggest that you try the mattress out for at least a couple weeks – ideally a month- before deciding, so you and the mattress can adjust to the proper support.
There is also a Lifetime Warranty offer with the mattress. Nest Bedding defines this as 10 years and says they will cover any defects in workmanship and materials for the first 10 years, and then if anything happens after that they will replace the bed for half off (one time) for the rest of your lifetime.
This mattress stands out in its simplicity and its firmness. It is straightforward in its construction and use of high-quality materials. Made completely with foam and a cooling layer, this mattress will most likely be a good fit for those who sleep on their stomachs.
The long trial period and “forever warranty” that Nest offers also removes the risk of trying out the mattress. It’s priced competitively to other memory foam mattresses that can be delivered to your door as well.
Based on my experience, the Aloha Sleep mattress could be a great fit for a stomach or back sleeper who is looking for an affordable but durable and supportive mattress delivered right his/her door.
The cooling fabric helps keep the all-foam bed breathable and comfortable and the 2” gel memory foam layer on top lets you sink just slightly into the bed, while the large base layer keeps things firm and supportive (and good for stomach sleepers).
Their 500 night trial period and warranty periods allow you to give the mattress a try for over a year before deciding if it’s the right fit for you.
