Best Overall – Hypnos Witney Latex Supreme Mattress

When taking everything into account, from price to quality and coverage, the Hypnos Witney Latex Supreme Mattress stands above other latex mattresses as the best in our eyes!
Best Overall
Product image of Hypnos Witney Latex Supreme Mattress

First off, let's talk about the quality of this mattress. It uses Talalay latex, meaning that you're getting the absolute highest-quality latex there is. Not only that, but the mattress also utilises wool fibres for a bit of added durability. And if that wasn't good enough, there are also 1200 specialised ReActivePro™ 6-turn pocket springs to make sure there is no motion transfer.

However, when it comes to Hypnos mattresses, it's not just the high-quality materials that are impressive. Their mattresses are also hand-tufted. This means that each model is getting the care and attention it needs in order to be at the top of its game. And to showcase just how much this means, let's just point out that Hypnos has been given the thumbs up from the late Queen Elizabeth II.

And if somehow you still weren't sold, let's through in a few more benefits. Firstly, not only are the mattresses made in an eco-friendly way but they're also completely recyclable. But you won't have to worry about that for a decade or so as they also come with a 10-year guarantee! Lastly, as you'll soon see, even the price isn't all that high considering that you're getting only premium materials.

KEY FEATURES:
  • Size: UK Single, UK Small double, UK Double, UK King size, Super King
  • Firmness: 6/10
  • Thickness: 28 cm

Best Premium: Octaspring 9500 Latex Memory Foam Mattress

If you don't care about the price and just want the best there is, we suggest giving this mattress a look! After all, it has everything you could ever need.
Best Premium
Product image of octaspring 950 latex memory foam

We often get asked, “Which mattress material is the best: memory foam, latex, or springs?”. Well, this mattress throws that entire conversation into the water as it effectively utilises all three! And not just by cramming them all together in one mattress. Instead, they use memory foam and latex in order to create their innovative spring system that offers supreme levels of comfort.

Not only that but with foam springs taking up most of the mattress, the Octaspring 9500 doesn't have any of the breathability issues foam mattresses tend to have. And since both of these materials are kings of conforming to your body, both the pressure relief and motion isolation offered by this mattress are next level.

Not to mention that this mattress surpasses even most high-end mattresses in terms of durability as it comes with a 20-year warranty! So, while your back account is sure to feel the hit, at least you won't have to worry about finding the best latex mattress for over two decades.

KEY FEATURES:
  • Size: UK Single, UK Double, UK King size, Super King
  • Firmness: 6/10
  • Thickness: 30 cm

Advantages

Best Value: Rest Assured Knowlton 2000 Pocket Latex Pillow Top Mattress

If the price is just as important to you as the quality of the mattress, we believe this to be the perfect pick. While it still utilises latex to a great degree, it's also a fraction of the cost!
Best Value:
Product image of Rest Assured Knowlton 2000 Pocket Latex Pillow Top Mattress

If latex sounds like a good fit for you but you aren't sure whether you want a 100% latex mattress, this mattress is ideal. It only uses latex in a thin 2.5 cm strip along the top. This means that you get a bit of that flexibility and bounce while still having the support of a regular spring mattress.

Speaking of the springs, you can expect 2000 of them, each in its own pocket. This means that the pocket springs can act independently and provide a high level of motion isolation. And the mattress itself is hand-tufted. So, you don't have to worry about random lumps in your mattress.

To top it all off, you get a very nice embroidered cover that's soft to the touch and rather breathable. Plus, a 5-year guarantee and a 60-night trial. Overall, we'd say you're getting more than just your money's worth!

KEY FEATURES:
  • Size: UK Single, UK Double, UK King size, Super King
  • Firmness: 6/10
  • Thickness: 30 cm

Advantages

An icon depicting a good value product
Good value-price ratio
For the price, both the materials and the coverage are top-notch
An icon presenting perpetual motion balls indicating low motion transfer
No motion transfer
With 2000 pocket springs, you shouldn't feel any motion transfer

Disadvantages

An icon depicting chain links indicating low durability
Slight durability concerns
The mattress can't be flipped and only has a 5-year guarantee, which is on the lower end for latex mattresses

Best Firm: Hypnos Wool Origins 10 Mattress

As you'll see later on, one of the big selling points for latex mattresses is that they tend to be on the firmer side. However, if you want the firmest latex mattress, this is where you need to look!
Best Firm
Product image of the Hypnos Luxurious Earth 01 Mattress

This is the type of mattress that just about anyone can benefit from. It comes in two firmness levels, firm and medium, so the majority of people will get the support they need.

Secondly, even the hottest sleepers can stay cool while sleeping on this mattress. Not only is latex already breathable but the mattress also has wool, which is one of the best materials for temperature regulation. And if you're half oven by nature, there are even air vents to help keep things cool!

The mattress also comes with 10-turn pocket springs, which are excellent for both motion isolation and support. And the mattress is double-sided, meaning that it's going to outlive most mattresses as long as you flip it every six months or so!

The only major downsides are that lighter side sleepers might need an even softer mattress and that those with a lower budget might find it to be too big of a spend.

KEY FEATURES:
  • Size: Small Single, Single, Small Double, Double, King, Super King, King Zip and Link, Super King Zip and Link
  • Firmness: 5/10 and 7/10
  • Thickness: 33 cm

Advantages

Best Soft: Hypnos Leamington Pillow Top Sublime Mattress

If the previous mattress wasn't doing it for you and sleeping on a cloud is the ultimate form of comfort, this premium latex mattress is bound to be the mattress of your dreams!
Best Soft
Product image of Hypnos Leamington Pillow Top Sublime Mattress

We've already covered Hypnos, so you know that this is a premium-quality mattress that doesn't leave anything to be desired. And with this model specifically, they have made it as soft as possible! First off, you get two extra thick layers of Talalay latex, meaning that your body can just sink into the mattress every night.

However, there's more. The mattress also features two fleece layers made from high-quality wool and a pillowtop that's to die for. These three features make the mattress as soft as it is! But getting a good night's sleep isn't just about softness.

Luckily, this mattress also comes with 1200 ReActivePro 6-turn pocket springs plus an added 1500 Adaptiv mini pocket springs. This means that your body is getting support from all angles and at all times, regardless of how much you sink into the mattress.

KEY FEATURES:
  • Size: UK Single, UK Small Double, UK Double, UK King size, Super King
  • Firmness: 8/10
  • Thickness: 31 cm

Advantages

Best All-Latex: Dunlopillo Celeste Mattress

If you want a mattress without any springs or foams but rather just pure high-quality latex, this is the mattress for you!
Best All-Latex
Product image of Dunlopillo Millennium Mattress

As you'll see later on, latex on its own is a very good mattress material. And when we're talking about natural latex, some might even say that it's memory foam but better. Well, this mattress should put that statement to the test as you're getting 100% natural latex throughout!

This means that the mattress has a certain level of flexibility, offering both bounce and the hugging sensation people usually associate with memory foam. However, unlike memory foam, this latex mattress is highly breathable and won't have you waking up in a sweat! And by mixing up firmer and softer zones throughout the mattress, you can rest assured you're body is being supported without giving up on comfort.

Lastly, the mattress is topped with a soft-touched knitted cover that's also treated against allergens. So, unless you're allergic to the latex itself, you should be completely safe! Overall, just a very solid latex mattress that also comes with some nice perks such as a 8-year guarantee and a 60-night trial.

KEY FEATURES:
  • Size: Double, King, Super King
  • Firmness: 7/10
  • Thickness: 24 cm

Advantages

An icon depicting a latex material
Natural latex

An icon depicting a money bag indicating an expensive product
A bit pricey
The mattress comes at a similar price to a hybrid as opposed to an all-foam mattress

Best Adjustable: Sleepeezee Latex 1000 Pocket Adjustable Mattress (link)

If you have an adjustable bedframe, it can be difficult to find a high-quality mattress that can get the job done. However, the Latex 1000 is here to save the day!
Best Adjustable
Product image of Sleepeezee Latex 1000 Pocket Adjustable Mattress

Sporting 4 cm of high-quality latex, this mattress offers a bit more bounce and flexibility than most foam models. And considering latex comes from a rubber tree, it seems like a perfect pairing for an adjustable bed frame! Plus, since latex is a bit firmer than most foam mattresses, you can also feel more supported when the bed is raised.

While we're on the topic of support, this mattress also comes with 1000 pocket springs that can all adapt to your movements at night without letting motion transfer take over. And the combination of wool tufts and a knitted cover adds some comfort into the mix.

Lastly, although latex is already more breathable than memory foam, Sleepeezee doubled down and made side air vents. This means that even the smallest amounts of trapped heat have somewhere to go, leaving you nice and cool. Add some nice bonus features such as side handles and decent coverage and you have quite an admirable mattress on your hands!

KEY FEATURES:
  • Size: Adjustable Small Single, Adjustable Single
  • Firmness: 6/10
  • Thickness: 22 cm

Advantages

An icon depicting a spring
Good support
While not the highest spring number, 1000 is still more than respectable
An icon depicting the product that is soft to touch
Soft sleeping surface
The knitted cover and wool tufts make for an excellent comfort layer

Disadvantages

Limited choices

What to consider when buying the best latex mattress

A woman thinking of what to consider when shopping for a latex mattress

Now that you've seen all of our favourites, let's go a little more in-depth and discuss the differences between different latex beds. Some are more obvious (like the price or thickness) and some are less so (like the types of latex). But don't worry – we'll cover it all!

Natural latex

Just like with most bedding materials, the natural variant is typically of higher quality. And that is very much the case with latex. A natural latex mattress is typically going to be a lot more durable, as well as bouncier. This is because it's basically rubber. On top of that, it will likely offer better support. This means that it makes for a good mattress for people with a bad back.

However, better quality also means a higher price, and the difference is not negligible. So, for budget-oriented shoppers, this might be quite the deterrent. Plus, latex is difficult to find as is but finding an all-natural latex mattress can seem impossible!

Natural latex is also biodegradable and hypoallergenic. And, in most cases, you don't have to worry about any harsh chemicals being involved in the processing. Although we will later talk about the two types of natural latex and how they're made.

So, if you want a completely eco-friendly luxury latex mattress that focuses on performance, natural latex could be the way forward. However, be prepared to pay a pretty penny. You also might not find too many good models aside from the ones we've already featured.

Synthetic latex

On the latex mattress market, synthetic latex is a lot easier to find. It usually comes at just a fraction of the cost. And, if you have a latex allergy, synthetic latex is likely going to be a safer option. Although, you should check with your GP to be sure. This is because synthetic latex is completely man-made and is basically plastic.

When it comes to the quality of the mattress itself, it's typically not too bad. While it might not be as bouncy as natural latex, a synthetic latex mattress is still likely going to be firmer and more supportive than most foam mattresses. And while they might not stick around as long as organic latex mattresses, the lower cost means that you can just buy a new one when needed.

Synthetic-natural blend

Lastly, we'd like to point out that most latex mattresses (especially when talking about mid-range models) won't just have natural or synthetic latex. In fact, many latex mattresses use a blend of both in order to craft a high-quality mattress that's still somewhat budget friendly.

The way this pans out is that synthetic latex usually takes up more than 50% of the filling in order to keep the cost down. Natural latex is then used for the mattress core or the upper layer in order to give it slightly better performance. And it's also worth mentioning that a latex bed made in this way is going to have some of the support from the natural latex while still being a bit less firm.

So, if slightly softer latex beds are what you're looking for, you could potentially get away with a synthetic latex mix. But if you want either the cheapest option or a high-quality, firm latex mattress, you're better off sticking to one side.

Organic latex

While this section is likely going to be the least relevant when choosing a new mattress, we still want to briefly cover it. While a lot of people, us included, will use the terms natural latex and organic latex interchangeably – there is a difference. Well, at least when production is involved.

Organic latex has the same performance as 100% natural latex, however, it has a much greener and safer production cycle. That being said, they are incredibly rare. And, unless the mattress in question has a GOLS certification, you're likely just buying a regular natural latex that has the word organic tacked on for better marketing.

What's the difference between Dunlop latex and Talalay latex?

As we've briefly touched upon, there are two different kinds of natural latex – Dunlop latex and Talalay latex. And while both are very solid options, they do differ slightly when it comes to the price of the mattress as well as the mattress features. So, let's briefly talk about what sets these two types of latex apart from each other.

An infographic showcasing the differences between the production of Dunlop and Talalay latex

Dunlop latex

Dunlop latex is the older, and perhaps the sloppier of the two. This is because the manufacturing process is rather short, with the sap going through barely any preprocessing and being baked right away. This then leads to some of the latex sinking to the bottom of the mattress, leading to a heavier model overall.

That being said, Dunlop latex is also cheaper, since it's easier to produce. It's also on the firmer side. So, latex mattresses tend to use Dunlop latex if they want a slightly cheaper, firmer mattress in the end. It's also rather useful when creating hybrid mattresses, as the thicker latex makes for a more impactful mattress core.

And while it's heavier, this doesn't mean much when getting a Single latex mattress. So, while some might claim natural Dunlop latex is of lower quality, it's still the better option in some scenarios.

Talalay latex

Talalay latex is the newer of the two and it encompasses a much longer manufacturing process. This is because Talalay latex mattresses are more uniform than Dunlop latex mattresses. On top of that, they're also lighter, which is a big plus if your new mattress is a Super King size.

And in terms of performance, Talalay latex is a bit softer and more comparable to a memory foam mattress. So, depending on your sleeping position, it might be the more comfortable material of the two. However, do note that latex mattress brands might up the price quite a bit in order to make up for the more complicated manufacturing process.

Hybrid latex mattresses vs all-latex mattresses

As we've briefly mentioned, latex isn't only used to make 100% latex mattresses. In fact, hybrid latex mattresses are arguably just as popular! However, it can be a bit difficult to distinguish which one you should get, as the two have fairly similar benefits. So, let's take a closer look.

An illustration showing the differences between memory foam and open coil mattresses

Hybrid latex mattresses

When using high-quality latex, even a relatively thin latex layer can go a long way! This is why getting a latex mattress topper can sometimes completely change the feeling of the mattress underneath. And just like latex mattress toppers, latex hybrids ideally balance out the bounce and pressure relief of the latex with a slightly firmer and more adaptable spring base.

You will also sometimes see the top latex layer being supported by foam layers, as this can make the entire mattress a bit lighter and cheaper without giving up on the mattress features that you want to see. And if the hybrid mattress has a pocket-sprung mattress base, you also get a very high level of motion isolation.

However, hybrid mattresses can be a bit deceptive and you don't always get the best of both worlds. If the latex layers are too thin or the base uses an innerspring layer, you might end up with a pretty mediocre mattress at the price of a luxury one! So, do note that you can't always be rest assured you're getting the best mattress ever. But, with that being said, hybrid latex mattresses are the most common form in which you'll see latex being used. So, you have a pretty wide selection!

All-latex mattresses

When it comes to all-latex mattresses, things are a bit more straightforward. The main thing you want to do is to check the type of latex that is being used and whether it's a blend. In some cases, natural latex mattresses can also have “fillers”, which lowers their quality a bit. However, it's not always easy to tell whether that's the case or not.

However, if it's all latex, you do get a few good perks. For one, natural latex is completely hypoallergenic and resistant to things such as dust mites and mildew. And if you get the appropriate latex type for your sleeping position and body weight, you're likely going to get all the comfort and support you'll ever need.

Plus, if you end up really liking your all-latex mattress, you might find that a good latex pillow will be equally as comfortable! After all, be it a latex pillow or a latex mattress, they come from the same rubber trees.

Memory foam mattresses vs latex mattresses

Since latex resembles foam, and even acts like it in some aspects, there can be a lot of confusion regarding the two. In fact, latex mattresses are often even sorted under foam mattresses right alongside memory foam for this very reason! However, there are a few notable differences between memory foam and latex.

Memory foam

Memory foam has a few very distinct advantages when compared to latex mattresses. For one, they're a lot easier to find and thus on average cheaper. Secondly, they can feel like less of a risk as the vast majority of people will find memory foam mattresses comfortable. This is because side sleepers are the most common and a slightly softer mattress will typically keep them the most comfortable. And if you take latex allergies into account, their widespread appeal is even more prominent.

On top of this, memory foam also cradles your body more. This means that your joints are getting more pressure relief on average. And if it's an all-foam mattress, you're unlikely to experience any motion transfer whatsoever. Although latex mattresses don't struggle in this department either. Nevertheless, getting the best memory foam mattress might seem like the safer and even better option for some.

Correct spine position

Latex

On the other hand, latex is generally a bit firmer. This means that it's a better choice for back and front sleepers (on average). At least when excluding Talalay latex. Latex is also a lot more breathable than memory foam, meaning that hot sleepers are likely going to be a lot better off.

Some people might also enjoy the added bounce of latex mattresses, as they can both comform to your body and push back – while memory foam can only do the former. On top of that, latex (at least natural latex) is a lot more durable than memory foam. This means that you have to get a new mattress much less frequently if you opt for latex.

Pinholes

Since pinholes aren't a very common feature in other mattress types, we thought it was worth pointing out. When you get a latex mattress, there should be holes on one or both sides. They don't always follow a symetrical pattern however, so, don't be alarmed if that is the case.

These pinholes ensure that the mattress remains highly breathable and also make the surface a bit less firm. So, if you're considering two different latex mattresses that are equal in all aspects except the pinhole number, know that the one with more pinholes will likely be more breathable and slightly softer.

Also, while this is more common with latex mattress toppers, you can find models where only one side has pinholes. Sleeping on that side of the latex mattress is going to provide better breathability while the other will hold on to heat. So, if it's a flippable mattress, you could sleep on the pinhole side during summer and on the solid surface during winter.

3 latex mattress toppers layered on top of each other

Certifications

As we've mentioned when talking about organic latex mattresses, certifications can be a very valuable thing when shopping for a new mattress. However, they're not always necessary.

Aside from the GOLS certification, the main other certification you can look for is the OEKO-Tex 100 certification. This basically just means that no dangerous chemicals were used during production. While it's not like mattresses without this certification are necessarily dangerous or unethical, it can be nice to be certain that everything was done up to code.

Tips for buying and using the best latex mattress

A woman pointing a finger

Now that we've gone over all of the different features and facts regarding latex mattresses, let's get a bit more specific. So, when you're buying a latex mattress, what are the most important things to look out for?

First off, decide on your budget and whether you want to opt for a natural latex, synthetic or blend model. We've covered how each of them tends to perform so, just make a decision on what makes the most sense for you. And if you're opting for a natural latex mattress, try to find out which latex type is used.

Secondly, check all of the supporting features. For example, do they have the size you want, is there free shipping, can you get a discount, and so on. After all, these are the factors that will help you pick and choose the best models in the same category.

Lastly, try to find a review of said model. While we have covered how latex mattresses tend to perform, there are still variations. And if it's a hybrid mattress, it's even more difficult to gauge its quality. That being said, The Sleep Advisors have covered quite a few latex mattresses. So, there's a good chance we have exactly what you're looking for!

As long as you follow these tips, you should be on your way to the perfect night's sleep! However, if you do have any further questions, feel free to ask us down in the comments. You can even request a review for a specific latex mattress if we haven't covered it yet.

The advantages of owning the best latex mattress UK

As we've stated a few times, it can feel like memory foam is a safe option while things can go astray with latex. After all, there are fewer models to choose from and it's completely possible that you've never even slept on a latex mattress before. So, is it worth it? Well, we can't make that decision for you. However, we can provide a list of some of the benefits of getting the best latex mattress the UK has to offer!

Conclusion

So, are you going to give latex a try and find the best latex mattress in the UK? Or will you stick to memory foam as the safer option?

On the one hand, stomach sleepers, heavier individuals, and hot sleepers might benefit from giving latex a shot. On the other hand, some side sleepers and those with a limitted budget might be better off with just a memory foam mattress. Let us know where you land in the comments!

FAQs about the best latex mattress UK

Lastly, let's go over a few questions you might have when searching for the best latex mattress UK has to offer. And if there's anything we missed, feel free to ask us in the comments.

Are there different types of latex mattresses?

When talking about latex, we can distinguish natural latex and synthetic latex. We can then further divide natural latex into Talalay latex and Dunlop latex.

Which latex is the best for mattresses?

Generally speaking, Talalay latex is said to be the best mattress filling.

Are latex mattresses hot?

Latex is typically a lot more breathable than memory foam. Plus, latex mattresses tend to have pinholes for added breathability. Therefore, people rarely have overheating issues with latex mattresses.

Do latex mattresses sag?

While latex mattresses are a lot more durable than most foam mattresses (typically lasting around 10 years) they can start to sag if not taken care of properly. This is why it's advised to check the product description and see whether your latex mattress needs to be flipped.

Can latex mattresses cause back pain?

Latex mattresses are generally a good choice for people experiencing back pain. This is because latex can cradle your spine and joints while also providing support.
