Key Similarities

  • Both are all foam mattresses that each have a dense foam base layer.
  • Both sleep cool and are very breathable.
  • They have a similar feel, though Loom & Leaf’s memory foam is slower moving.
  • Both offer a 120-night trial and free shipping.

Key Differences

  • Loom & Leaf is thicker at 12 inches, compared to Nolah’s 10 inches.
  • Loom & Leaf offers two firmness options: relaxed firm, and firm.
  • Loom & Leaf runs more expensive.
  • Loom & Leaf has a thicker comfort layer, potentially making it more appropriate for heavier sleepers.
  • Nolah has a viscose cover, while Loom & Leaf’s is cotton.
  • Loom & Leaf markets itself as an eco-friendly option that uses bio-based materials.

Nolah Construction

Here’s a description of Nolah’s construction with a picture to illustrate:

  • A cover of thin, soft, breathable viscose that doesn’t affect the overall feel of the mattress significantly.
  • On top, a 2-inch layer of a proprietary “AirFoam” that keeps cool and has been shown in studies to relieve pressure better than standard memory foam.
  • Below the AirFoam, a 1-inch of latex-like Avena foam. This layer gives the mattress good bounce and makes it more responsive. The Avena foam is also highly durable.
  • A 7-inch of high density poly foam, similar to most foam mattresses on the market.

Loom & Leaf Construction

Here’s a breakdown of Loom & Leaf’s construction:

  • The cover is made of organic cotton and also doesn’t affect the feel of the mattress too much.
  • The top 2-inch layer uses a combination of gel foams. The main foam uses what Loom & Leaf calls a “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.
  • Next is a 2.5-inch layer of high-density memory foam that is supposedly more environmentally friendly than standard memory foam.
  • A 2-inch transition layer comes between the memory foam layer and base layer.
  • The 5.5-inch base layer consists of a dense support foam that is pretty standard for online foam mattresses.

Construction Differences/Notes

  • The mattresses should have a pretty similar durability, but Loom & leaf probably has a slight advantage.
  • Loom & Leaf has more layers and a more complex overall construction.
  • Loom & Leaf’s comfort layers are thicker, potentially making the mattress more appropriate for heavier sleepers.
  • Nolah has a thicker bottom layer.
  • Both sleep cool — Nolah because of its proprietary foam top layer, Loom & Leaf because of the gels in its top layer.
  • Nolah has more of a quicksand feel to it, so you’ll feel more like you’re sleeping “in” it and not “on” it.

For more information on how these mattresses compare to others, check out our other popular mattress comparisons like Nolah vs Purple and Loom & Leaf vs Layla.

Firmness Differences/Notes

Nolah generally has more of a quicksand-like sinking quality than Loom & Leaf, which is a little firmer. Loom & Leaf has a little more bounce to it and is more pillow-like. Watch the videos below to get a better idea of what to expect from each mattress.

Motion Transfer Differences

Both these mattresses isolate motion really well and would be good options for couples. Watch the videos and you’ll see how comparable they are in this respect.

Pick Nolah If:

  • You change positions a lot — Nolah has a more responsive sleeping surface, making it easier to switch positions and move around in the bed.
  • You’re worried about sleeping hot — While both the mattresses sleep cool, Nolah is actually temperature neutral and has a slight edge in this category. 

Pick Loom & Leaf If:

  • You like memory foam — Loom & Leaf has a classic memory foam feel, so if you’ve had success with the material in the past, this might be a good option.
  • You’re heavier — People who weigh more will get more support from Loom & Leaf, which has thicker comfort layers and is thicker overall.

Overall

I hope this comparison was helpful and the decision of which one to get is a little more clear. Basically, both mattresses are good choices, but with some key differences. Consumers should take a look through this article multiple times, assess their own needs and preferences, and then make a more informed decision.
