What makes Nora different from other mattresses?

  • While there are other mattresses that ship quickly, Nora is one of the few that has a standard 2-day shipping turnaround through Wayfair.

What to watch out for

  • There is a slight odor to the Nora mattress when you first open the box. Any smell will dissipate over a couple days.
  • Compared to many of its competitors, Nora is not made in the US (it’s manufactured in China).

Nora sizes available

  • Twin: $479
  • Twin XL: $519
  • Full: $629
  • Queen: $749
  • King: $949
  • Cal King: $949

A look inside

  • Top layer: 2″ layer of gel-infused memory foam for a plush surface that conforms to your body.
  • 2nd layer: 3″ thermo-regulating layer of gel-infused cooling foam that draws heat away from your body.
  • Bottom layers: Two 3.5″ layers of high-density support foam that provide balance and support.
  • Cover: Jade-infused quilted fabric that helps keep you cool.

What Nora customers have to say

  • “I honestly didn’t think a foam mattress would feel so good compared to my traditional mattress! Shipping was nice and easy, and unboxing was fun to watch. Sleeping on it was a “dream” (pardon the pun) – woke up nice and rested – looking forward to sleeping on it again!” – Thomas
  • “Great buy! My husband and I were looking for something new that would fit both of our comfort needs. We had a memory foam mattress that was just OK, and really wasn’t cutting it when I got pregnant. The Nora mattress has exceeded our expectations. Shipping was quick, and the packaging was neat and easy. We both woke up well rested (finally!) and agreed that it was the perfect complement to his need of a “firm” mattress and my need for a “cushion-y ” mattress. I don’t think you can beat this in terms of comfort and price. Thank you NORA from my soon to be family of 3!” – Jamie
  • “I’m so happy we decided to switch to a memory foam mattress! I’m obsessed. I knew a memory foam mattress would be different but it’s SUCH a difference. The shock-absorbent quality is amazing. I don’t even notice when my husband gets up or moves. The cooling cover is a major plus. We love it!!”
