Avocado and Loom & Leaf are two pretty different brands of mattresses that you can buy online. One has springs and a pillow-top, the other is all-foam. Options also come at different price points. This post will compare the two brands so you can decide which is better for you.
- Both options are relatively firm and feature organic cotton covers.
- Both options tout environmentally friendly materials.
- The brands have similar thicknesses; Loom & Leaf is 12″ thick; Avocado comes in 11″ and 13″ options.
- Both offer free shipping and have great customer service.
- Loom & Leaf is all-foam, while Avocado incorporates coils.
- Loom & Leaf is less expensive. ($649 to $1,499 for Loom & Leaf; $959 to $2,199 for Avocado)
- Loom & Leaf offers a longer trial period — 120 nights to Avocado’s 100.
- Avocado offers an optional pillow-top, while Loom & Leaf does not.
- Avocado has a 100 percent organic cotton cover that doesn’t affect the overall feel of the mattress significantly.
- 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 the most. This advanced coil system makes the mattress great for sleepers who weigh more.
Loom & Leaf Construction
- Loom & Leaf’s cover is also made of organic cotton and doesn’t affect the feel of the mattress too much.
- The top layer is 2″ of a combination of gel foams. The main foam uses what the company describes as “gel-swirl” construction to evenly distribute temperature. Laminated on top of this gel is a special spinal panel that uses a cooling gel found in burn units of hospitals.
- The next layer is 2.5″ memory foam that Loom & Leaf says is more environmentally friendly than standard memory foam.
- A 2″ transition foam layer comes before the base layer, which consists of 5.5″ of dense support foam.
- Avocado uses natural latex, while Loom & Leaf uses a memory foam that it says is environmentally friendly. Avocado’s materials are more green overall.
- Avocado’s coils make it more durable and supportive.
- Avocado offers a pillow-top, giving it more of a luxury feel.
- Loom & Leaf is all-foam and also uses cooling gel for extra breathability.
- Both have organic cotton covers that are pretty similar.
- The mattresses are of similar thickness.
Both are relatively firm, but Avocado has more bounce while Loom & Leaf is a little softer and slower moving.
Motion Transfer Differences
Both isolate movement well, but Loom & Leaf prevents its transfer a little better because it is softer.
Pick Avocado If …
- You want more bounce- Avocado has a bouncier surface. The right amount of bounce comes down to personal preference, so this could be a good thing depending on your personal tastes.
- Natural materials matter to you- Both mattresses tout environmentally friendly materials and have organic cotton covers, but Avocado also uses natural latex.
- You sleep on your back- Avocado is firmer and will give back sleepers better support.
Pick Loom & Leaf If …
- You want to sink in- Loom & Leaf, while relatively firm, is softer than Avocado and is all-foam. This mattress will let sleepers sink into it slowly and have it contour well to the curves of the body.
- You sleep on your side- Loom & Leaf will conform better to your contours to give you the support and pressure relief you need.
- You don’t want to spend too much- Loom & Leaf is less expensive, so consumers can save a little money by choosing it over the Avocado.
These brands have different benefits and will appeal to different buyers. Hopefully this comparison helped you better determine which is right for you. Please leave any relevant questions in the comments.
