Set up test

The Nolah Signature mattress took us exactly two minutes to set up. This mattress puffed to life instantly and did not have a noticeable odor.

So for our setup test, the Nolah Signature gets an 8 out of 10.

Motion Transfer Test

Part A - The Humans

The Nolah Signature struggled a bit to keep motion transfer to a minimum. RJ and Asha noticed they could feel one another moving around, so they gave it a collective score of 6.5 for this test.

Part B - The Wine

That wine appeared to hold its own on the Nolah Signature mattress, though there was still a slight tilt. We gave it a 7.5 for our wine test.

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave the Nolah Sinature a 7 out of 10.

Edge Support Test

Part A - The Shoe Test

The Nolah Signature scored a 6.75 for the edge shoe test. RJ had a bit of a hard time perching on the edge of this bed.


Part B - The Side Test

Once again, RJ and Asha found it a little difficult to lay on the edge. So for the edge support side, the Nolah Signature scored a 6.5.

So the Nolah Signature gets a 6.6 out of 10 for edge support.

Pressure Relief Test

We saw mainly blue and green on RJ so we give him a 9.5! Nice job, Nolah.

We saw a bit of yellow in Asha’s hips, but we still give her a 9 for no trace of red.

So for a total pressure relief score, Nolah Signature gets a 9.25 out of 10.

Spine Alignment Test

We took a close up of both RJ and Asha’s backs to see the alignment. You’ll want to see a straight line from the neck all the way to the tailbone.

The Nolah Signature kept RJ and Asha’s spines mostly straight, but there is a bit of a curve leading to the base of their neck.

For spine alignment, Nolah Signature gets a 7.75 out of 10.

Responsiveness Test

The Nolah Signature did a great job of responding to Asha and RJ’s movements as they adjusted their sleeping positions. They scored the Nolah Signature a 9.5 out of 10 for responsiveness.

FAQ: What is Responsiveness?

So Nolah Signature gets a 9.5 out of 10 for responsiveness!

A look inside

The double-sided Nolah Signature mattress is made with 4 layers of foam:

  1. Soft side: 2.5” of soft and cooling AirFoam. Guaranteed to sleep cooler than Memory Foam and provide 4x better pressure relief.
  2. Deep supportive high-resilience foam: 1.5” high-resilience foam that is both soft enough for side sleepers and supportive enough for back/stomach sleepers
  3. Reinforced high-density core foundation: 7” of core foundation foam
  4. Firm side: 1” of supportive Nolah AirFoam providing support and pressure relief. Especially good for stomach sleepers.

What Nolah Signature 12'' customers have to say

  • “We love it so far. It was a wedding gift to each other. We get so excited to get in bed now, our previous mattress was a low profile mattress pushing 20 years old. We are constantly happy about our purchase. No more springs in my side and no more dead arms for her. We both wake up feeling rested and energized.” – Carl H.
  • “I have only had the mattress for a week, but I have already noticed a difference in my sleep. Also, no more aches and pains when I wake up in the morning.” – Sarah K.
  • “We’ve had a good experience so far with our Nolah mattress. We are about two weeks into using it, so I still have not formed my final opinion, but it is a very comfortable bed– it’s slightly softer than the Casper and others on the market, which I like. I also have been very impressed with customer service and the cause (wildlife protection) that they support!” – Gary S.
