Amerisleep seemingly has a memory foam mattress for every type of sleeper from petite to lightweight, to every sleeping position. The one thing they were missing from their catalog was a natural and organic option for all the eco-friendly mattress seekers who want to stray from memory foam. That is, until now. The newest bed in their lineup is the Organica Mattress which utilizes premium, responsibly sourced materials from all over the world including Sri Lanka, New Zealand, and India.
In this mattress review, you can expect details on all the bed’s major highlights from construction, how firm it is, how well it will fit your specific sleeping position and everything in between. The Organica mattress by Amerisleep is one of a handful of latex mattresses that have a more neutral, balanced firmness level, making it accommodating for a wider range of sleepers.
Intrigued to find out more about the Organica mattress and our thoughts on its performance? Continue on below!
Amerisleep Mattress Feel & Firmness
The primary materials in an Amerisleep Organica mattress are latex, pocketed coils, and extra comfort fluff like Joma wool and organic cotton. We’ll dive more into construction below, but together, these materials influence how the bed feels.
It’s ultra bouncy and springy thanks to the latex foam and pocketed coil layer. It’s not like a memory foam mattress where you sink into the contouring layers. Instead, it’s like a big comfy sponge that was naturally sourced from the sap of a tropical rubber tree. The wool batting on top makes it slightly more fluffy and plush.
We’d rate the firmness around a medium to medium firm, which is softer than most latex beds that have firm and supportive profiles by design. Its latex hybrid construction offers an ample amount of support, but it’s also soft enough to conform against your curves.
This bed is surprisingly pressure-relieving. We say surprisingly because most latex hybrids that come through our doors, like Avocado and Birch, aren’t as great in this category. Though, as you’ll see below, the Organica mattress can even be a solid consideration for some side sleepers because it’s softer than your average latex bed.
It’s not the coolest bed we’ve ever tested, like GhostBed Luxe or Brooklyn Bedding Aurora. Still, the perforated latex foam and pocketed coils promote more airflow than your standard memory foam or poly foam mattress. We say it sleeps temperature neutral and it shouldn’t make you feel hot or cold, like most latex hybrid mattresses.
Organica Mattress Construction
The Organica mattress is a thick hybrid and measures out to be around 13” tall. The main three layers are stacked as listed below:
Base layer: The base is made with a thick system of 8” pocketed coils, each individually wrapped to isolate motion and work independently from one another to provide targeted support.
Middle layer: You can find natural Talalay latex foam in the center of the mattress, which acts as the primary comfort layer. Across the foam are small holes to promote increased airflow!
Top layer: On top of the mattress is New Zealand Joma Wool, top-of-the-line quality wool. Its purpose is to make the bed feel a little bit more plush and cozy.
- Organica Mattress Cover
On top of the three layers is a white button-tufted cover which gives it a clean, premium finish. Another added benefit of the mattress cover is it’s made with GOTS certified organic cotton. It feels soft and fuzzy, but it’s more moisture-wicking and breathable than standard cotton.
You cannot remove the cover, so you’ll have to resort to spot cleaning with warm water and a mild detergent in the case of a spill.
The Organica mattress has several things going for it that make it a very durable mattress option. For one, it’s 13” thick and made with a steel base rather than flimsy foam. Two, latex foam is some of the most durable bedding material you can use and withstands the test of time better than memory foam or poly foam. As such, it’s very durable and should last you longer than a typical foam bed.
Body Type Analysis
You always want to take your weight and BMI into consideration when you’re searching for a mattress. Like clothes, beds are not always a one-size-fits-all.
If you’re really petite and looking to save money, you don’t need to buy a hybrid mattress like Organica. With that being said, don’t let us stop you if it’s something you want. Just make sure you’re a back, stomach, or combo sleeper.
People who weigh between 150 to 230 lbs can usually get away with any mattress. The Amerisleep Organica bed is no exception. Whether you want a hybrid or all-foam bed, the choice is yours.
We always suggest hybrid beds to people who weigh over 230 lbs because you’ll get more of your money’s worth. It should be more durable and supportive than an all-foam mattress. As such, the Amerisleep Organica mattress is perfect for plus-size body types.
Organica Mattress Sleeper Type Analysis
It might come as a surprise, but the position you sleep in should help dictate the type of mattress you purchase. Below, we discuss how Organica will work for each sleeping position.
- Back Sleepers
Most back sleepers will find Amerisleep Organica to be perfectly supportive, especially if you weigh under 150 lbs. It does an excellent job keeping your back and spine supported throughout the night to prevent sagging. Though, if you weigh over 230 lbs, you might want a firmer mattress.
- Stomach Sleepers
Stomach sleepers are in the same boat as back sleepers. For petite to average body types, the Organica mattress falls in the sweet spot between pressure-relieving and supportive. Though, if you weigh over 230 lbs, we suggest you look into a firmer mattress.
- Side Sleepers
Surprisingly enough, we think most side sleepers will really enjoy the Organic mattress, especially if you weigh over 230 lbs. It’s conforming enough to curve with your body and relieve your pressure points along your sides.
However, petite side sleepers under 150 lbs will probably want a softer bed.
- Combination Sleepers
This bed is great for combination sleepers because it offers a nice balance between pressure relief and support, as I’ve mentioned throughout the post. It does wane towards the firm side of the spectrum, but combination sleepers who sometimes sleep on their side should be perfectly fine.
Is Amerisleep Organica A Good Mattress For Couples?
This bed could be an option for couples. There are a few additional bed features couples should look for when they’re in the market for a new mattress. Since Organica has an accommodating firmness level for a wide range of sleepers, that box is luckily checked! Now, you just need to learn about edge support and motion isolation.
Nothing negative to report here! Edge support checked out on the Organica mattress since we felt perfectly supported on both sides of the bed, no matter how close to the edge we got.
Motion Isolation And Noise
You don’t want to feel your bed move every time your partner gets up in the middle of the night. This is where good motion isolation comes in. Even though Organica is bouncy, we think motion isolation is fine here. It’s not the best we’ve ever seen, but it shouldn’t be a problem with you and your partner.
How Much Does The Amerisleep Organica Mattress Cost?
Beds made with natural and organic materials are generally more expensive than regular mattresses because of more eco-conscious practices and attention to detail behind every step of the mattress-making process, from sourcing to manufacturing. The Amerisleep Organica mattress, however, is more affordable than other competing latex beds.
A twin-size Organica mattress retails for around $1,400 and goes up to $2,238 for a split king. With that said, you can usually expect about $400 off or more with the discounts mentioned on this page.
Organica Mattress Reviews Verdict
We’ve reached the end of our Organica mattress review and want to wrap up our thoughts so you have a clear picture of how well this mattress will suit your needs.
For starters, we love how it’s an environmentally-friendly mattress. We are also pleasantly surprised about its firmness level since it seems softer than many other similar beds we’ve tested. Not to mention, the price of the Organica mattress is more attractive than other natural and organic mattresses, too.
We think it’ll work for just about every sleeper type, excluding petite side sleepers and heavy back/stomach sleepers, thanks to its middle-of-the-road firmness rating. It’ll also suit any body type, from petite to plus size. If you want a comfy mattress that’s just as nice on the environment as it is for your sleep, we recommend the Organica mattress.
Other Amerisleep Mattress Reviews
You can pick any mattress from Amerisleep and you’ll be impressed. There’s no doubt about it, they’re well-made, quality beds. Amerisleep offers a wide range of mattresses that have something for everyone.
You should expect an Amerisleep mattress to last about as long as any other bed — for 7 to 8 years. Keep in mind that your weight and how often you sleep on the bed will impact how long it lasts. For example, a guest bed is likely to last longer than one that’s slept on every night.
