Meet the newest mattress from Nature’s Sleep! The Emerald gel memory foam mattress is one of the most unique mattresses I have ever unboxed or tested.
This mattress is created by Nature’s Sleep. This Florida based company specializes in not only in building the most comfortable and supportive mattresses, but mattresses that use the highest quality (on par with Tempur-pedic) and healthiest materials. The result is a mattress that sleeps wonderfully, and healthily. You can find Nature’s Sleep products at Khol’s, Costco, and of course online at NaturesSleep.com.
The Emerald Gel Memory Foam mattress is truly one of the most unique mattresses I’ve ever seen. It is specifically designed with stomach sleepers in mind. The foams used, their layering, and other construction factors combine to form a mattress that helps stomach sleepers get better sleep. The mattress does this with what they call the “elevator effect”. Essentially, the mattress rises up or lowers down based on the sleeper’s weight in different places, allowing the spine to achieve proper alignment, while also reducing pressure on your airways.
Not a stomach sleeper? Nature’s Sleep has a full line of mattresses for all sleepers! Check them out here. Also, don’t forget to grab our exclusive Nature’s Sleep promo code. Use “Derek60” at checkout to save 60% off your entire Nature’s Sleep order.
I’ve only slept on my Nature’s Sleep Emerald gel memory foam mattress a few nights, but thus far I’m really impressed. I have been a stomach sleeper my entire life. Most days my back is fine, which is likely more due to my age (or lack thereof), but other days I can certainly wake up sore sleeping on traditional mattresses.
In any case, I definitely managed to strain my lower back a bit last week working out. The mattress I was previously testing wasn’t doing me any favors to alleviating the pain in an already strained back. After my first night on the Emerald gel memory foam I could tell a noticeable difference in my soreness. Perhaps it was simply the strain running its course, but the absence of back pain in the morning combined with one of the deeper sleeps I’ve had in a while make me think the mattress is playing a big factor.
The feel is similar to that of a traditional memory foam mattress. There’s a fair degree of sinkage, hug, and contour around your body. Generally, I don’t like this feeling, but in this case it seemed to work for me. The foam layers do a good job of dropping certain portions of my body, while elevating others, getting my back closer to a neutral spine alignment.
Nature’s Sleep products are certainly not inexpensive, but you really get what you pay for. Their quality is at the same level of Tempur-pedic. That said, Nature’s Sleep was gracious enough to offer Sleepopolis’ readers one of the biggest and best discounts I’ve ever been able to give…60% off your entire order. And that’s any order. Just use promo code “Derek60” at checkout. When you factor in the 60% they really are a great value for the money.
It’s only been a few days, but thus far I’m really enjoying the feel and rest. I’m getting great sleep and it has reduced much of my lower back pain.
