Most mattresses are built to last at least a few years. Some can last as long as a decade. This means you don’t ever really get a chance to get good at mattress shopping. While you may know the basics of what you want in terms of firmness and bounce, there are so many other things to consider like:
- How has your body changed since the last time you went to mattress shopping?
- Will what works for you work for your sleep partner?
- What measures can you take to ensure the product you choose won’t sleep hot?
- Is the company reputable?
With so many companies out there nowadays, it can be hard to read between the lines and find the best product for your unique needs and budget. I recently had the chance to check out the Awara mattress, and it could be a great fit if you’re looking for a firm sleep surface with plenty of bounce that can support a lot of weight.

Excellent for Hot Sleepers
Hot sleeping can seriously disrupt quality sleep. This is largely due to the fact that, in order to enter deep REM sleep, your body temperature has to slightly drop. In a mattress that cannot breathe, this can be difficult to achieve.
As I tested out the Awara mattress, I took some time to observe the cooldown process after lying on the mattress for 30 minutes using a thermal imaging camera. It performed far above average, and there are a couple of main contributing factors:
- Cotton wool blend in cover promotes airflow
- The innerspring unit is breathable by design and comprises 70% of the mattress
Although Awara uses Dunlop latex which doesn’t employ the additional processes to keep heat buildup minimal as is used in Talalay latex, Awara was still able to sleep nice and cool. Considering Dunlop is less expensive, this keeps costs low.
Bounce without the Motion Transfer
It can be hard to find a bed that has plenty of springy bounce without causing excessive motion transfer. When motion transfer is high, it can be disruptive for sleep partners. However, when the bounce is low, it can be hard to move around or get in and out of bed.
You can get the best of both worlds with the Awara mattress. Its combination of responsive latex with the innerspring unit creates a sleep surface that gives you plenty of bounce. Make sure you check out our video review to see how well it reduces transfer using two 20 pound medicine balls.
