If you have been looking for a new mattress to buy and so far have restricted your choice to only memory foam mattresses, then it might be worthwhile to think of a better option.

Nolah has come out with its innovative product which is considered to be a better alternative to even good quality memory foam.


The innovative foam called the Nolah AirFoam™ is ideal for side sleepers and comes with less heat retention while providing more pressure relief. The Nolah AirFoam™ is superior to normal memory foam. It doesn’t trap heat and assures a cool comfortable sleep.

The Nolah mattress also has the CertiPUR-US® certification which makes it safe and without the use of chemicals that harm the environment. Moreover, the company commits to giving away 7% of the proceeds from your purchase to wildlife causes.

The Nolah mattress is ideal for all types of sleepers. Moreover, the Nolah Signature 12 is a flippable mattress. It has two sides – soft and firm. You can use any side you prefer by just flipping the mattress.

Let us find out more on what makes Nolah mattress different from others and how it makes more sense to buy it.

1. Construction and Materials

The Nolah Mattress comes in two thicknesses. The Nolah Original 10 Mattress is 10-inch thick, while the Nolah Signature 12 Mattress is 12-inch thick. Both use the same innovative Nolah AirFoam™.

Nolah AirFoam

This is superior to memory foam or other conventional ‘visco-elastic’ foams. It is a fast, responsive temperature-neutral ‘memory foam’.

This PU foam is made without the heat-trapping viscoelastic chemicals. Therefore it retains less heat and also exerts less pressure on the body. It has a bounce similar to latex foam.

Let us get into the insides of both these mattresses.

Nolah Original 10 mattress

It has three layers with a total thickness of 10 inches.

[custom_list type=”check”]

  • 1st or top layer  It is made of 2-inches thick cooling, pressure relief Nolah AirFoam™. It is the closest to your body. It is made to give pressure relief and comfort as it hugs you softly.

This is the layer that keeps you cool without trapping the heat that emanates from your body.

  • 2nd layer: This is a 1-inch layer of high resilience AirFlow™ support foam. It is deeply supportive while providing a reassuring bounce.
  • 3rd or the base layer: This is a 7-inch thick layer made of High-Density Base Foam. The foam is breathable yet strong and durable. This is meant to be an additional reinforcement for support. This layer makes your mattress last for years together.


Nolah Signature 12 mattress

The Nolah Signature 12 has a total thickness of 12 inches. This is a flippable mattress with varying firmness. On one side it is of 4-5 medium firmness, while on the other side it is 7-8 firm.

This mattress is like having two with different firmness. It suits all kind of sleepers whether they sleep on their side, back or tummy.

[custom_list type=”check”]

  • Layer 1 on the soft side This has 2.5-inches of thick cooling Nolah AirFoam™. This is the same foam that makes the top layer of Nolah Original mattress. However, it is only 1 inch thick in the Nolah Original mattress.
  • Layer 2 It is made of 1.5 inches of high resilience foam. It is the same quality of foam used in the Original 10 mattress, except that it is thicker.
  • Layer 3 This is a 7-inch layer of high-density breathable base foam. This layer again is the same as in the Nolah Original. Even the thickness is the same.
  • Layer 4 When you flip the mattress this layer comes on the top. This is the firm side of the mattress.  This is made of 1-inch Nolah AirFoam™.

This is the same as used in the top layer of the Nolah Original 10 mattress.


Soft and breathable cover

The mattress comes with an organic cotton cover. This cover is made from natural viscose sourced from wood pulp. This cover takes off moisture. It keeps you dry while you sleep off peacefully through the night.

11.Cons of Nolah Mattress Mattress

It might sound amazing, but we did not find any cons with the Nolah mattress. In fact, unlike other memory foam mattress which lacks bounciness, Nolah mattress is somewhat bouncy.

This feature will be enjoyed by those who sleep on the sides or their stomach.

Bounciness also means reduced motion isolation. Therefore couples may find themselves a bit more disturbed on Nolah than on other mattresses.

Also, you may find the edge support a bit lacking as compared to mattresses made with other materials.

The final verdict – Why Nolah mattress is a good choice?

What tilts the scales in favor of Nolah is its proprietary Nolah AirFoam™ which is superior to normal memory foam. So you will find the mattress quite comfortably cool during sleep.


Nolah also gives you four times more pressure relief than ordinary memory foam mattresses. If that was not enough, Nolah mattresses are three times more durable than other foam mattresses and 26 times more durable than other mattresses. Think of all the money you will save over the years!

What is more, Nolah is good for all types of sleepers. It doesn’t matter if you are a side, back or stomach sleeper. Moreover, with Signature 12 mattress you get twin option of firmness by just flipping the mattress.

Also, with a 120-nights trial and 15-year warranty, you get absolute peace of mind. Nolah is 100% manufactured in America. You will also feel good to know that a part of your money goes towards protecting America’s wildlife!

With all these benefits that give you the best value for your money, there is no reason not to choose the Nolah Mattress.
