How it’s made & how it arrives:
Hybrid mattresses are popular for their ability to combine the best of innerspring and memory foam mattresses into a single design—and this Aware pick is no exception. The medium-firm design combines pressure-relieving Dunlop latex with individually-wrapped coils for targeted support to your shoulders and hips.
Not only do the coils minimize motion transfer, they also ensure there’s plenty of airflow to keep you cool despite the layer of pressure-relieving latex (which already runs cooler than memory foam). There’s also a moisture-wicking wool exterior for added effect.
The more luxurious of the brand’s two models, it clocks in at a 6.5 out of 10 on Awara’s firmness scale. Shipped and compressed in a box, the Premier has four handles for easier setup and positioning.
We love that Awara has a ton of certifications, such as the Rainforest Alliance, Greenguard Gold, and the Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX. Plus, the use of more eco-friendly materials means there shouldn’t be any off-gassing smells while it expands.
What customers say:
Awara has overwhelmingly positive reviews. “No more back, shoulder or hip pain. No more tossing and turning all night long,” one shopper raves. Others compliment its cooling properties, natural materials, and the fact that it gave off no odor during unboxing.
On the other hand, some folks do say this mattress is either too firm or too soft for their liking–and there’s only one firmness option. Luckily, if you’re up for trying an Awara out yourself, you’ll have a whole year to decide if it’s a fit for you.
