Nolah Mattress Air Foam – First Thoughts

I was sent Nolah Air Foam Mattress for review. All opinions are my own.

I put off getting a new mattress for far too long. I knew it was time to replace my old mattress for a while. However, I didn’t really realize just how bad my old mattress truly was. I’ve been amazed at how much of an improvement my new Nolah mattress is.

Nolah mattress delivery

Nolah mattresses are available to purchase online and get mailed right to your door. The box includes instructions for how to unwrap your mattress. It’s really simple though, you just cut the packaging open in a certain way following the instructions so the mattress can expand to full size slowly. I was surprised at how quickly it took full form. Once unpacked it is 10 inches thick.

Nolah 10 inch mattress review

Whenever I have slept on guest beds, or in hotel rooms, I wake up sore even when the bed feels comfortable to lay on. I always thought the pain came from just not being used to the mattress. I fully expected an adjustment period when switching to the Nolah. I also wasn’t sure if the Nolah mattress would feel like a “normal” mattress. It was hard for me to imagine that a mattress could come in this tightly packaged roll in the mail, and then unravel into a durable, high quality mattress. I was worried that it might seem more like a thick cushion than a mattress. It genuinely doesn’t feel like the quality is compromised in any way. It is more sturdy than my old mattress was.

Nolah 10 inch thick mattress

I woke up the next morning completely pain-free. I slept great! It’s been a couple of weeks since the Nolah was delivered and I still find it extremely comfortable. There was no adjustment period for myself or for Ryan. The Nolah mattress comes with a medium thickness, and is made out of Air Foam which is a new type of foam. It has the support of traditional Memory Foam while the bounce of Latex. It feels comfortable from the time you first lay on it. If you lay for a while and then get up, you’ll notice that it was holding your shape. I’ve found that I toss and turn less at night. Ryan often goes to bed before me and will lay with his laptop in bed while he drifts off. When I join him in bed, I move his laptop and adjust blankets, etc before laying down. With our old mattress my movement would always wake him because the entire mattress would shift with our weight. The Nolah mattress holds its shape on his side when I lay down or move around on my side. The fact that the movement doesn’t transfer across the mattress is easily my favorite feature of the Nolah. We don’t disturb each other, and our dogs who sleep with us don’t get smashed up against us because we aren’t sleeping in a big sinking hole that pulls them in.

I also felt great knowing that my order helped support wildlife. When you purchase a Nolah mattress you choose an animal from a list. For each mattress sold, Nolah “adopts” one animal through the Defenders of Wildlife program. I love reading about new discoveries that are made with dolphins. They are incredibly intelligent creatures that just amaze me. I chose to “adopt” a dolphin and I was mailed a package that included a certificate of adoption.

Nolah mattress review

Nolah mattresses are made in the USA (Colorado, to be specific) and I love knowing that I am supporting a US business. I’ve only been using this mattress for a couple of weeks. I will do an updated review once I’ve spent more time with the Nolah just to update you all on whether or not the newness wears off, or if my opinion changes. Stay tuned for that review!

  • We need a mattress so much, this I know – but they are so expensive. maybe this is the way to go (and yes, we let the dogs on the bed too).

    I’ve heard of these foam mattresses in a box – such a neat idea! I also really like that it’s made in the US, that gives it high marks in my book.

  • Jeanine Carlson

    I’ve heard from a couple of people that these are great mattresses. I may have to try one for myself.

  • cheryl larimer

    Thank you for the review and I am anxious to read your updates after you have had it for a bit. I love the concept and hope you feel the same.

    I purchased a California King @Nolah mattress online. One of the best shopping decisions I ever made! This mattress costs 1/3 or less than the same memory foam mattress with the famous name.
    The box weighed 90 pounds and ships for free. Two of us easily hauled it up tight stairs and in minutes we had a new mattress installed.
    Each night we sleep on our Nolah, we like it more and more. The mattress is firm yet comfortable. My aches and pains have really diminished noticeably.
    Best of all, Nolah has really great customer service. Check with them to see if they offer discounts for signing up for their emails or a military discount before you order.
    My dogs give this mattress a rating of 4 paws up!

    This is truly nifty. I once had an air mattress when I had a teeny attic apartment that a regular mattress wouldn’t get through the doors. The adoption concept with Defenders of Wildlife program is wonderful!

  • Lynda Cook

    What a cool mattress, I have heard all great things about these, would love to get one, one of these days I will!!

  • kathy downey

    Wow,that sure sounds like a wonderful mattress. I love that it has the support of traditional Memory Foam while it has the the bounce of Latex.Great review thanks!

  • Laurie P

    Looking forward to your follow up review! Looks comfy!

  • Susan Hartman

    I was just looking into buying a new mattress today. I can’t believe that the mattress came in that box. Have to think about this.

  • ellen beck

    I hadnt heard of this company before. I am on the fence about air foam, but this one sounds nice. I have an air mattress by a different brand that I have had for some time, and its getting to be about time to replace it. It is nice it is USA made, I do look for that in companies. I have animals too, and it sounds like yours like this pick!

  • Danielle S

    Sounds like a great mattress. I wonder how it’s like with two people sleeping on it? Sometimes these foam mattresses converge down the middle when two are on it. One, they always do okay, but two??

  • Chris

    Hi Emily,

    Thanks for the great review, the dog looks very cute as well. I did review for Nolah mattress as well and found it’s very friendly for the guys with back pain. Compared with other online mattress companies, they use special Nola air foam, which makes it very bouncy and cool during sleeping. Really a great mattress.
