In this review we discuss the LazyCat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress’ ability to deliver on its claims that it is comfortable and supportive for all sleepers. We have tested the mattress and reviewed all of the pertinent information for you so you can determine if this mattress is right for you.
A fair competitor to the LazyCat mattress is the Zinus Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress. Both are constructed from four separate layers of high-quality foam, and both include a layer of memory foam that has been infused with Green Tea. The difference between the Zinus mattress and the LazyCat mattress is just 1 inch. The Zinus is 12 inches thick, while the Lazy Cat mattress is 11 inches thick.
Another fair competitor is the AC Pacific Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress. Both of these mattresses offer a layer of memory foam infused with green tea. The difference here, however, is the AC Pacific mattress only has 2 layers and it is 8 inches thick, and the LazyCat mattress has 4 layers and is 11 inches thick. The LazyCat mattress is certainly more durable and offers more customized support than the AC Pacific mattress.
The Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress from LazyCat is constructed of four separate layers of the highest quality foam. The first layer is a green tea infused memory foam, the second is natural latex, the third is super soft foam, and finally the fourth layer of supportive high-density base foam. These layers work in conjunction with one another to make an 11-inch thick mattress designed to bring you the best quality of sleep you didn’t know you were missing All of the foams used in this LazyCat mattress are CertiPUR US Certified, which means that they are safe for you and for the environment.
The First Layer
The top layer of this LazyCat mattress is 1.5 inches of memory foam infused with green tea. This is the layer of the mattress that is responsible for creating the initial feeling of softness that you experience when you first lie down on the mattress. It is highly responsive and creates a hugging sensation while it conforms to the natural contours of your body. This initial layer provides support exactly where it is needed the most by distributing weight evenly and reducing strain on your body.
The Second Layer
The second layer of foam is 1.5 inches of natural latex. This is the layer that is responsible for providing a healthy level of bounce for the mattress; however, it also helps to restrict motion transfer. Essentially, you won’t have a difficult time moving around or getting in and out of bed, but you also won’t notice any motion created by another person moving or getting into or out of the bed. The latex used in this mattress is obtained from Thailand and contains anti-microbial properties. This means the bed is hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites for a safe and healthy mattress.
The layer of latex is also responsible for the natural moisture-wicking properties of this bed. Moisture is actually pulled away from the body and this helps to keep the surface of the mattress cool and comfortable all night long.
The Third Layer
The next layer is 2 inches of super soft foam. This foam is responsible for the mattress conforming to each individual body and it creates a cushy feeling of supportive softness. It also helps to provide pressure point relief, by distributing weight evenly throughout the mattress. This layer provides the pain relief associated with sleeping on surfaces that create pressure points like innerspring mattresses.
The Base Layer
Finally, the foundation layer is 6 inches of high-density base foam. This is the layer of the mattress that supports the three layers above and keeps the shape of the entire mattress. It is responsible for preventing the mattress from sagging and it provides deep compression support, further eliminating the development of pain caused by pressure build-up while you sleep.
The four layers of the LazyCat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress is surrounded by a cover that is made of soft-knitted Belgium Bekaert fabric. This cover is highly breathable, which supports the elimination of heat retention and keeps the mattress cool throughout the night. It is also incredibly soft and allows you to really experience the layers of foam underneath you. The cover is machine washable and is easily removed and put back on with the inclusion of an intuitive zipper.
The design of the cover is pretty basic. It is white on the top and around the sides, but there is a small amount of navy blue near the base of the sides. This adds a nice pop of visual interest and modern flair to the design.
The LazyCat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam Mattress employs the bed-in-a-box sales strategy and is only available to purchase online. It is shipped directly from the manufacturer to the consumer after it is ordered. This strategy reduces the stress that is often associated with the high-pressure sales tactics used at the mattress store. It also reduces overhead costs making the mattress affordable because the savings are passed to the consumer. The downside to this is that you can’t try it before you buy it. This might make it difficult to determine whether or not this mattress is suitable for you.
To help you better understand if the Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress from LazyCat will meet your needs, we have fully assessed the pertinent elements that impact the overall quality, design, and comfort of the mattress. In this portion of our guide, you can see our unbiased findings after testing the mattress. The elements that we assessed are:
Firmness is really subjective. But if we had a 10 point scale to rate the firmness, with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest, we rate the LazyCat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress with a score of 5.5. It is just a little above neutral in regard to firmness so it ought to appeal to the majority of sleepers.
We found the LazyCat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress to be very comfortable. What you immediately notice is the highly responsive top layer of foam that creates a kind of hugging feeling as it contours to your individual body shape. The super soft foam adds a layer of softness and comfort to the mattress. Also, the memory foam and the latex work to restrict the transfer of motion. You will not feel any movement in the mattress when your partner moves or gets into or out of bed. This is ideal for people who share a bed; often we are disturbed by the movements that the other person makes leading to night waking.
Even though the top layer is soft and comfortable, it is also highly supportive. The support comes from its highly responsive properties; it reacts and shapes to the natural contours of your body. It evenly distributes your body weight, creating the perfect amount of support that you need, where you need it the most. This helps to reduce strain and pressure point build upon the body, which effectively eliminates pain generated by traditional mattresses. The high-density support foam provides deep compression support further reducing the development of pain in the main problem areas of your back, neck, and shoulders while you are sleeping.
The latex and the Belgium Bekaert cover pull heat away from the body and circulate it throughout the rest of the mattress. This helps to reduce heat retention; however, there are other mattresses on the market that we have tried out that are better at eliminating the heat cycle. We did notice some warming up throughout the night. This is something that you should consider if either you or your partner tends to sleep hot.
One common complaint you’ll often hear about memory foam mattresses is the off-gassing odor experienced upon initial setup. Certain chemicals are used to construct the foam that can have an unpleasant odor. We did not notice any odor emanating from our LazyCat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress. The materials used in the construction of the foam in this mattress are all CertiPUR US Certified. If you do experience an odor, we are confident that it will be very mild. You should place the mattress in a well-ventilated room and the odor will dissipate within a few hours.
Foam mattresses are notorious for being less than ideal for amorous activities. The properties inherent to foam are fantastic to absorb motion transfer, which is great for comfort; however, it is not so great when it comes to intimate activities. People often report having to exert a great deal more effort to enjoy those types of movements. The layer of natural latex in this mattress does provide it with a nice amount of bounce that might aid in those intimate bedroom activities, but there will never be as much bounce or recoil in a foam mattress as there will be in an innerspring mattress.
We also examined how the LazyCat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress feels for various sleep positions. Here’s what we found…
We think that the majority of back sleepers will find the Lazy Cat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress comfortable. Its ability to distribute weight evenly and conform to the body helps to eliminate pressure buildup while sleeping on the back. If you’re a back sleeper and you’re on the heavier side of the weight spectrum you might find this mattress to be a bit too soft.
The majority of stomach sleepers should also find this mattress to be quite comfortable. Because this mattress is virtually neutral in firmness it is ideal for stomach sleepers. It has just enough give, yet it does not make you feel like you are are being sucked into the mattress.
Most side sleepers, too, will enjoy the LazyCat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress. Side sleepers often have pressure build up in several different places because of spinal alignment. This prevents the buildup of pressure in the body by maintaining proper support and spinal alignment throughout the night.
The LazyCat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress is designed to work with all types of mattress frames. This highly versatile mattress can be used with your existing bed frame so you won’t have to purchase new furniture to suit your new mattress provided it is the same size.
The LazyCat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress is made of high-quality foam materials that are CertiPUR US Certified. This mattress is very affordable and offers superior support and comfort that most people will enjoy.
