The Avocado Latex is for stomach sleepers. With even pressure relief around the entire body, this mattress keeps your spine aligned and prevents your hips from sinking. Stomach sleepers tend to stray away from memory foam mattresses. The support they’ll get from the Avocado Latex is similar to that of an innerspring or hybrid mattress.
On the same token, the Avocado Latex also works for those who prefer to sleep on their back. Back sleepers get the luxury of choosing between plush and firm mattresses. You will not sink into this mattress like you would a pure memory foam bed. The Avocado Latex provides even pressure relief across your body.
The most important factor when it comes to back sleepers is lumbar support. Avocado’s three-zone support system promotes healthy spines by providing more support in the middle of the mattress to keep your lower back from sinking in.
While the Avocado Latex works for stomach and back sleepers, side sleepers should pass. The bouncy core and firm feel will increase pressure around the hips and shoulders and leave your back unsupported. You’ll want to invest in something a little plusher, and possibly in the memory foam or hybrid mattress family.
On the contrary, heavier side sleepers (230 plus pounds) will get some use out of the Avocado Latex as they’ll be able to sink into it more effectively than light-framed individuals. If your body weight is in line with these specs, the Avocado Latex may be a good fit for you. However, there may still be better options available.
