Choosing a latex hybrid 06 Sep 2021 23:59 #1

Hello! I've been doing research for my next mattress purchase, and have decided to go with a latex hybrid for its temperature regulation.

I have narrowed down my options to those that meet the following criteria:
  • Queen size under $2000
  • No zoning
  • No separate pillow top (attached/built-in is acceptable)

Currently I'm trying to decide between the following (please suggest anything that's missing):

Besides latex type and thickness, what else should I consider? I noticed that most of these mattresses have cotton+wool tops and only the Luma uses Tencel. Is cotton+wool superior for breathability and sleeping cool?

I am primarily a back sleeper with some side sleeping, 5'10", 160 lb, no specific pain issues. Thank you for reading.

Hi Roy.

Welcome to our Mattress Forum. :)

It looks like you're right in the thick of it and have quite the list of options you are considering! The Luma, Nest, and Sleep EZ mattresses are all offered by manufacturers in our Trusted Member Directory which means we think very highly of them in terms of quality, knowledge, transparency and more and believe them to compete with among the best in the industry.

The Eco Terra, Birch, and Awara also look like excellent options with no obvious weak links that could result in compromised durability or support. They also were fully transparent, which is always a great sign of a quality retailer .

The Brooklyn Bloom Hybrid has 1" of "transition" foam beneath the latex and didn't disclose the density of that foam; this could be a potential weak link.

No matter who you buy from, it is important to have a detailed conversation with whomever you choose to purchase from and provide them with your stats, body type, sleeping styles, general preferences and history, some general information about your current mattress, or what you have tested, and any other specific information or circumstances that could affect your choice of a mattress so they can help you choose which may be your best fit from their inventory.

I noticed that most of these mattresses have cotton+wool tops and only the Luma uses Tencel. Is cotton+wool superior for breathability and sleeping cool?


This is a preference matter. Tencel shares a lot of properties with cotton/wool when it comes to temperature regulation, moisture absorption but is lauded for its quick-dry capabilities and durability. If you're looking for a natural alternative to wool/cotton, Tencel is a good option.

I hope this helps some!
