Just over $1,000 and packed with innovative technology, The Nolah Original surpasses the typical memory foam mattress in durability, pressure relief, and cooling, making it perfect for side sleepers.
The 10-inch mattress has a Tencel cover and is composed of three foam layers. It’s made of Nolah AirFoam, which is composed of billions of microscopic air bubbles that distribute body weight for maximum pressure relief. This layer puts four times less peak pressure on your shoulders, hips, and lower back than memory foam. This layer also cushions your joints and bones and promotes spinal alignment, reducing painful inflammation.
Most of our testing team agreed that they liked the feel of Nolah’s proprietary foam. The general consensus about its pressure-relieving ability was among the best they’d experienced with foam mattresses, but they weren’t sure four times better was entirely merited. Support and cooling worked as they should, and received satisfied and very satisfied ratings from our testers. We’ll have to trust Nolah’s lab-tested results regarding the mattress’s long-term durability, as our testing only lasted two weeks.
When you add your mattress to your online cart, Nolah gives you the option to reduce the total amount you’re paying by $70 if you select the option to remove your risk-free trial. Once you make your purchase, The Nolah Original ships for free via FedEx. If you prefer, you can add white-glove delivery for $125. You can return the mattress for any reason during the four-month trial period and receive a full refund, minus a $99 transportation fee.
