LazyCat is the latest company to join the bed in the box platform in the mattress industry. The makers of Lazy Cat have a decade of experience crafting furniture for the bedroom. They are dedicated to creating high-quality products that meet the needs of all sleepers, that are good for the environment, and that are good for the consumer – and their Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress is a true testament to their commitment.
Made of memory foam that has been infused with green tea, natural latex, super soft foam and high-density base foam, all of the materials used in this LazyCat mattress combine to create a comfortable and supportive sleeping surface that truly aims to deliver a restful and restorative night of sleep. All materials are backed by a CertiPUR US Certification, which means that they are free of harsh chemicals, such as formaldehyde, flame retardants and other elements that are hazardous to the environment and have the potential to be hazardous to the sleeper. This means that you can rest easy and have peace of mind knowing that you will be sleeping on a mattress that is as healthy for – and the environment – as it is comfortable.
So, does the LazyCat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress actually deliver on the claims that it makes that it is comfortable and supportive for all sleepers? We have tested it out and have provided full details of our findings in this in-depth review.
The Zinus Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress is a fair competitor for the Lazy Cat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress. Both offer four separate layers of high-quality foam, and both have a layer of memory foam that is infused with Green Tea. However, the Zinus mattress is 12 inches thick, while the Lazy Cat mattress is 11 inches thick.
The AC Pacific Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress is also a similar mattress to the Lazy Cat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress. Again, both offer a layer of memory foam that has been infused with green tea; however, the AC Pacific mattress offers only 2 layers and is just 8 inches thick, while the Lazy Cat mattress is comprised of 4 layers and stands at 11 inches thick. The Lazy Cat mattress is certainly more durable and offers more customized support for the sleeper than the AC Pacific mattress.
Below is our final score of the LazyCat Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress based on multiple criteria that we use when testing all of our mattresses.
What’s It Made From…
The Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress from Lazy Cat is constructed of four separate layers of the highest quality foam, including green tea infused memory foam, natural latex, super soft foam and supportive high-density base foam. Together, these layers combine to make a mattress that is a total of 11 inches thick. Additionally, all of the foam used in this Lazy Cat mattress are CertiPUR US Certified, which means that they are safe for you and for the environment.
The First Layer
The initial layer of this Lazy Cat mattress is made of 1.5 inches of memory foam that has been infused with green tea. This is the layer of the mattress that creates the initial softness that you feel when you lie on the mattress. It is highly responsive and creates a hugging sensation, conforming to the natural contours of the body, providing support where it is needed the most, thereby reducing strain on the body.
The Second Layer
The next layer of this mattress from Lazy Cat is made of 1.5 inches of natural latex. This is the layer that provides the mattress with bounce; however, it also helps to restrict motion transfer. This means that you won’t have a difficult time moving around in the bed or getting out of it, yet you also won’t feel any motion created by another person’s movements. The latex used in this mattress is procured from Thailand and contains anti-microbial properties, which make it hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites, making the mattress safe and healthy.
Latex also has natural moisture wicking properties, which means that it pulls moisture away from the body and helps to keep the surface of the mattress cool and comfortable.
The Third Layer
Next, there is a layer of 2 inches of super soft foam. This foam allows the mattress to conform even more to the body and creates even more of a cushy feeling. It also helps to provide pressure point relief, preventing the development of any pain while you are sleeping.
The Base Layer
Finally, there is a 6-inch layer of high-density base foam. This is the layer of the mattress that supports the upper three layers and allows the entire mattress to retain its shape. It also prevents the mattress from sagging and provides deep compression support, further eliminating the chances of developing pain while you sleep.
Encompassing the four layers of the Lazy Cat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress is a cover that is made of soft-knitted Belgium Bekaert. The cover is highly breathable, which reduces heat retention and helps the mattress remain cool throughout the night. It is also incredibly soft and allows you to really feel the layers of foam underneath you. The cover is machine washable and can easily be taken off and put back on, thanks to the inclusion of an intuitive zipper.
Aesthetically speaking, the cover is pretty basic. It is white on the top and around the majority of the sides; however, there is a small amount of navy blue near the base of the sides, which adds a pop of visual interest and modern flare to the design.
Hands on Review
The Lazy Cat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam Mattress is only available to purchase online, and it is shipped directly from the manufacturer to the consumer once it is ordered. This definitely reduces the stress that is often associated with buying a mattress, as you don’t have to deal with high-pressure sales tactics. It also reduces overhead costs, which really makes the mattress affordable. However, because you can’t try it before you buy it, it can be difficult to determine whether or not this mattress is the right fit for you.
To help you figure out if the Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress from Lazy Cat will meet your needs, we have fully assessed the elements that impact the overall quality and design, quality and comfort of the mattress, and we share our findings in this portion of our guide. The elements that we looked at include:
On a firmness scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest, we rate the Crazy Cat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress with a score of 5.5. It is just a little above neutral in regard to firmness, which means that it should appeal to the majority of sleepers.
We found the Lazy Cat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress to be very comfortable. The initial layer of green tea infused memory foam is highly responsive and creates a wonderful and comfortable hug for the body. The super soft foam adds another layer of softness to the mattress, adding further comfort. Also, because the memory foam and the latex helps to restrict the transfer of motion, you should not feel any movement in the mattress, which is ideal for people who share a bed, as you won’t be disturbed by the movements that the other person makes.
Pain Relief and Support
The top layer of memory foam is not only comfortable, but it is also highly supportive. It is highly responsive and reacts to the natural contours of your body, as well as your body weight, creating the amount of support that you need, where you need it the most. This helps to reduce strain on the body, which eliminates pain and provides pressure point relief. The high-density support foam provides deep compression support, which further helps to reduce the development of pain in key problem areas while you are sleeping, such as the back, the neck, the shoulders and the sides.
The latex and the Belgium Bekaert cover help to pull heat away from the body and circulate it throughout the rest of the mattress. This does help to reduce heat retention; however, we did find that it doesn’t sleep as cool as other mattresses that we have tried out. We did notice that there were some warming up throughout the night, which is something that you are going to want to keep in mind, especially if you tend to sleep hot.
Off gassing is a common issue that occurs with mattresses that are made of foam. There are certain chemicals that are used during the construction of the foam, and they can have an odor to them. We did not notice any odor when we received our Lazy Cat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress. We think that is because the materials that are used in the mattress are all CertiPUR US Certified. If you do experience any odor, we are confident that it will be very mild, and placing it in a well-ventilated room will help the odor to dissipate in no time.
Foam mattresses are notorious for not being ideal for amorous activities. That is because the foam absorbs motion transfer, which is great for comfort; however, it is not great when it comes to intimate activities, as more effort is usually required to enjoy those types of movements. The layer of natural latex in this mattress does provide it with a nice amount of bounce, which we think will certainly aid in those intimate bedroom activities.
Sleep Position Ratings
We also examined how the Lazy Cat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress stacks up 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. It does distribute weight evenly and conforms to the body, which helps to eliminate pressure buildup while sleeping on the back. Some back sleepers, especially those who are on the heavier side, may find this mattress to be a bit soft, however.
Back Sleeping score: 9/10
Most stomach sleepers should also find this mattress to be comfortable. The nearly neutral firmness is ideal for stomach sleepers, as it creates just enough give, yet it does not make you feel like you are stuck in the mattress.
Stomach Sleeping score: 8.75/10
Most side sleepers, too, will enjoy the Lazy Cat Natural Green Tea Infused Memory Foam mattress. It prevents the buildup of pressure in the body, which is an issue that side sleepers often have to deal with.
Side Sleeping score: 8.75/10
