Organic Luxury Hybrid Mattress

Awara makes their mattress using natural foam and wool. It has three layers and an outer shell. The layers include:

  • A Euro top: This breathable top layer that has moisture-wicking properties, helping the body stay cool during sleep.
  • Latex foam: This 4-inch layer of natural foam provides comfort and structure.
  • Coils: This is a supportive base layer of 9-inch coils.

Awara say that their mattress helps support spinal alignment by evenly distributing weight and accommodating pressure points of the hips, back, neck, and shoulders.

They also claim that it limits motion transfer, making sleepers less likely to be disturbed by a partner’s movement.

Awara provide a forever warranty for each mattress, plus a 365-day trial with free delivery and returns. The company also say that they plant 10 trees for every mattress purchased.

Bed frames

Awara offer two frames for their mattress, including a basic platform bed frame made from natural materials and an adjustable frame. This allows a person to change the height of the bed’s head and feet.

Both models come with a 50-day trial. The adjustable model has a lifetime warranty, while the platform model has a 3-year warranty.

Anyone looking for a hybrid or memory foam mattress might also research:

Areas of the back, shoulders, and buttocks are the most common points of pressure when a person lies down. If a mattress does not effectively support these areas, the results may be pressure sores and poor sleep quality.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that low sleep quality can increase the risk of several health issues and conditions, including:

A review of studies from 2014 investigated the relationship between lower back pain and three types of mattress — water bed, foam, and firm mattresses. The analysis showed that firm mattresses led to a slight increase in pain, and that waterbed and foam mattresses had similarly negligible effects.

In a pair of older studies from 2009 and 2010, researchers found similar results.

The latter study also found that memory foam and hybrid mattresses may help relieve stress on pressure points and improve sleep quality. The researchers recommend that consumers replace any mattress that is uncomfortable or unsuitable for their sleeping position.

Still, research into mattress types and brands is limited. Exercise caution when mattress manufacturers claim that their products provide health benefits.

Awara sell a single mattress — a hybrid model that contains natural latex. Some people may appreciate the company’s environmentally friendly approach. The mattress has very positive reviews on Awara’s site and mixed reviews on Amazon.
