Peacelily mattress review & guide
Peacelily doesn’t have time for gimmicks when it comes to sleep. According to the brand, the reality of buying a mattress can sometimes mean purchasing a product, typically made from petrochemical-based memory foams, which start to sag within years and rarely live up to the promised warranty period. And when it’s time to replace it with a new model, many old mattresses end up sitting in landfills.
The Australian-owned company says its latex mattress is the way to go − offering a healthy and environmentally friendly solution for when you go to sleep. It also sells a variety of other bedroom essentials, including the Peacelily Mattress Topper, Peacelily Adjustable Bed (bed base), Peacelily Mattress Protector, and pillows made from latex or kapok.
What is the Peacelily Mattress?
Peacelily believes the healthiest bedding option is latex. Similar to memory foam, the Peacelily Mattress is made to mould around the natural contours of your body but also provides that buttressed sensation – you don’t quite sink, but you don’t bounce either. The Peacelily Mattress also relies on the natural resilience of rubber latex to prevent sagging and ‘dipping’.
The Peacelily Mattress is made of two key materials:
- A 100% natural rubber latex in the foam and glue
- Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) organic cotton in the fabric cover and wadding
Generally, when a mattress starts to ‘sink’ over time, it can slowly reduce the amount of support your joints get. It can also make you feel more partner disturbance, meaning you’ll know each time your partner moves around or gets up. However, the Peacelily Mattress is said to contain a latex interior made up of three layers of varying densities (medium, firm, and core). The core layer supposedly reinforces the medium and firm sides in order to prevent sagging. This also means that you can flip the mattress to adjust the level of support to either firm or medium-firm, similar to mattresses from brands like Koala.
Here are a few other advantages to using a latex mattress, according to Peacelily:
- Latex is suitable for all sleep positions.
- Latex is naturally resistant to harmful microbes including mould, mildew, and dust mites.
- Latex has an open cell structure that encourages airflow and prevents moisture from the air, your body, or the surface of the mattress from building up inside the mattress and requiring regular cleaning.
- Latex doesn’t retain body heat or heat from the room, making it cool to sleep on.
- Organic cotton promotes airflow and good breathability.
- Latex is durable and sustainable.

- Single (92cm x 188cm x 21cm): $849 RRP*

It’s not uncommon for brands to adjust their retail pricing based on factors like supply and demand, or when launching a new version of a product.
What really separates Peacelily from the rest is the fact that it keeps the cost of its mattresses and other products consistent each year. This is particularly helpful if you’re shopping on a budget and want to avoid any unpleasant surprises when you’re finally ready to make a purchase.
Manufactured in Sri Lanka, the Peacelily Mattress also comes with a generous 25-year warranty and a 100-night risk-free trial. You’ll need to use the mattress for at least 30 nights before you can request a full refund (if the mattress isn’t the right fit for you). Free shipping and returns are additionally available in some areas.
Is it worth buying a Peacelily Mattress?
Latex mattresses are one of the most expensive types to buy, but Peacelily tends to offer relatively affordable options and fairly competitive pricing. Unlike many other brands, Peacelily is surprisingly transparent when it comes to cost. You can head to the website to check out its Honest Pricing model. The brand also has plenty of useful information on its mattress and other items to help you compare and find what’s best for you.
Here are several standout reasons why a Peacelily mattress is worth considering:
- 25-year warranty
- 100-night risk-free trial
- You can flip the mattress to adjust the level of support to either a medium or firm feel
- Minimal to no sagging
- Naturally antimicrobial
- Maintains cool temperature due to organic cotton and latex
- Made with non-toxic materials.
Just be aware that latex mattresses are generally firmer than other types of mattresses, so if you’re looking for a mattress to just ‘fall into’ the Peacelily mattress might not be for you. Also, free shipping might not be available to customers in rural or regional locations, and Peacelily won’t remove your old mattress for you.
