Avocado and Tomorrow Sleep are both brands that sell combination foam and spring mattresses online. What most differentiates these mattresses is price, firmness, and composition. We’ll break down these differences, as well as a few similarities, in this post.
- Both incorporate both springs and foam.
- Both brands offer 100-night trials.
- Both offer free shipping.
- Avocado is thicker. (Tomorrow Sleep is 10″; Avocado comes in 11″ and 13″ thicknesses.)
- Avocado has an optional pillow-top.
- Avocado uses natural materials, including organic cotton and natural latex.
- Tomorrow Sleep uses memory foam.
- You can buy Tomorrow Sleep for less ($959 to $2,199 for Avocado; $550 to $1,150 for Tomorrow Sleep).
- Avocado is firmer and has more bounce.
Tomorrow Sleep Construction
- Tomorrow Sleep’s Medium Soft and Medium Firm versions of its hybrid spring and foam mattress model differ just a little in their construction.
- Both have a polyester and nylon cover.
- Both have 1″ of memory foam with phase change material on top.
- Both have a second layer of gel foam, which provides comfort and bounce beneath the top layer. This layer is thicker in the Medium Soft option.
- The Medium Firm option has an additional layer of memory-foam-like “dynamic response foam” under the gel foam layer.
- Both versions have a 6″ support layer consisting of individually pocketed coils. The Medium Firm option uses thicker coils.
- Both versions have a foam side rail system that reinforces edge support.
- At the base of each version of the mattress is 1″ of stabilizing foam.
- Avocado has a 100 percent organic cotton cover. Without the optional pillow-top, Avocado is 11″ thick. With the pillow-top, it’s 13″ thick.
- Avocado’s top layer is natural dunlop latex, giving it bounce and firmness. This material also provides good pressure relief.
- On the bottom is a layer consisting of individually wrapped coils zoned to provide support where it’s needed. This supportive layer makes the mattress great for sleepers who are heavier.
- Both mattresses are durable, but I would give Avocado the edge here.
- Both mattresses incorporate individually wrapped coils.
- Avocado has more bounce and uses latex.
- Tomorrow Sleep has more of a sinking, soft feel and uses memory foam.
- Avocado uses natural materials.
- Avocado has an optional pillow-top.
- Avocado is thicker. It is probably more supportive overall.
- Avocado is firmer than both Tomorrow Sleep options.
- Tomorrow Sleep has a side rail support system to reinforce edge support.
Avocado is firmer and has more bounce to it. Tomorrow Sleep has more of a memory foam feel. The Tomorrow Sleep video is for the Medium Firm version. Expect the soft version to be softer and have more give.
Motion Transfer Differences
Both mattresses do a good job of isolating motion, but Tomorrow Sleep has an edge because it is softer and uses memory foam.
Pick Avocado If …
- Natural materials matter to you. Avocado uses natural latex and organic cotton.
- You need some bounce. Avocado’s latex layer gives it a springy surface.
- You sleep on your stomach or back. Avocado is firmer, potentially making it more appropriate for stomach and back sleepers.
Pick Tomorrow Sleep If …
- You sleep on your side. Tomorrow Sleep is softer and conforms better to contours.
- You like to sleep “in” your mattress. You’ll sink into Tomorrow Sleep more.
- Motion isolation matters. Couples that include a light sleeper may prefer Tomorrow Sleep’s memory foam, which is better at preventing motion transfer.
These mattresses have pretty different feels and will appeal to different sleepers. I hope this comparison helped you decide which one you might prefer. Please leave questions about either brand in the comments.
