Avocado and Amerisleep are both mattress brands sold online. These mattresses differ mostly in how firm they are and how many options they give consumers. We’ll compare the two here so you can decide which might meet your needs better.
- Both offer firm options and have similar prices.
- Both offer 100-night trial periods and have great customer service.
- The brands have similar ranges of thickness. Amerisleep’s options run 10″ to 14″ thick; Avocado comes in 11″ and 13″ thicknesses.
- Both offer free shipping.
- Amerisleep is all-foam.
- Amerisleep offers different levels of firmness with its various models
- Avocado incorporates coils, while Amerisleep does not.
- Amerisleep has a wider price range. ($849 to $3,498 for different Amerisleep options; $959 to $2,199 for Avocado)
- Avocado offers an optional pillow-top, while Amerisleep does not for any mattresses.
- Avocado has a 100 percent organic cotton cover that doesn’t affect the feel of the mattress too much.
- With the pillow-top, the mattress is 13″ thick; without, it’s 11″ thick.
- The first foam layer is made of natural dunlop latex, providing good pressure relief and bounce.
- The support layer contains a system of individually wrapped coils zoned to provide extra support where you need it most. This advanced coil system makes the mattress great for sleepers who weigh more.
- Amerisleep has five firmness levels, and the thinner the mattress, the firmer it will be. The 10″ thick AS1 is the firmest. Construction is similar across the different models, especially for the middle three firmness levels. Firmness options are explained in greater depth here.
- Amerisleep’s cover is made of Celliant. Celliant is said to distribute thermal energy in such a way as to help with muscle recovery, and is used in some athletic clothing.
- All of Amerisleep’s mattresses have a top layer of its Bio-Pur memory foam, but the thickness of this layer varies by firmness level. This foam is intended to ensure cool sleeping.
- AS5 has an additional layer of a special foam that makes it softer. This is the model’s second layer and is not included in other models.
- The middle layer of the medium firm options (AS2, AS3 and AS4) is a supportive transition foam layer. This layer is thickest in AS2 and thinnest in AS4. AS5 also has a layer of this material.
- AS1 skips a middle layer in other firmness levels, and goes straight from the Bio-Pur comfort layer to a dense 8″ thick base layer. The thickness of this layer and the lack of middle layers make AS1 firmer. Other models have a 7″ base layer of dense support foam.
- Avocado uses natural latex, while Amerisleep uses memory foam.
- Avocado offers a pillow-top, giving it more of a luxury feel.
- Amerisleep options are all-foam.
- Amerisleep offers more firmness options.
- Amerisleep has a Celliant cover, while Avocado has an organic cotton cover.
- The mattresses come in similar thicknesses, but Amerisleep also has options thinner and thicker than what Avocado offers.
Amerisleep is generally softer and has more of a memory foam feel, while Avocado has more spring.
Motion Transfer Differences
Both brands isolate motion well. Amerisleep’s softer options have an edge, though.
Pick Avocado If …
- You are looking for some bounce. Avocado has a springier surface, so if you are looking to get some bounce from your mattress, then the Avocado could be the right fit.
- You care about natural materials. Avocado uses organic cotton and natural latex.
- You weigh more. Avocado’s coils and latex make it more supportive, and thus a better option for people who are heavier.
Pick Amerisleep If …
- You want more firmness options. Amerisleep comes in more levels of firmness.
- You like memory foam. Amerisleep has more of that slow-moving memory foam feel.
There’s some overlap in what these brands offer, but mostly they’re pretty different and will appeal to different people. I hope you found this comparison helpful. Please share any additional questions in the comments.
