Are Avocado Mattress mattresses good for couples with a restless sleeper?
Share your experience with Avocado Mattress' motion isolation features
When it comes to motion isolation, The Sleep Judge gave a positive review, saying, "Using two 20 pound medicine balls, I tested this product to see just how well it performs. I placed one ball on one third of the mattress and dropped the other on the opposite third. To my surprise, there was minimal movement of the resting ball when the other all made contact with the mattress surface. Furthermore, the ball I dropped only bounced a few times before coming to rest."
Tuck.com compiled and analyzed 678 reviews from 16 different sources, and gave Avocado's Motion Isolation factor a rating of Good (with Very Good and Excellent being higher) with the justification, "Being a very firm hybrid (almost an innerspring), the Avocado will transfer motion more than all foam and other mattress builds."
Since the Avocado Mattress is made from latex, it has a much firmer feel to it. This makes it ideal for back and stomach sleepers as well as added support sleepers who are heavier.
However, while latex can provide the same level of comfort as memory foam, it doesn't perform as well as memory foam when it comes to addressing motion transfer. The mattress definitely does a decent job of isolating motion, however, you'll still feel the movement a little bit if you share the bed with a partner who tosses and turns a lot. So it's a very good option for couples with restless sleepers, but not the best available..
