We all need great sleep, each and every night. This is made possible by sleeping on the right mattress. Do you want a high-quality mattress that will last for ten years? Would you prefer a luxury mattress? Do you want a hand-made mattress made by master craftsmen with unparalleled attention to detail? Do you want a mattress made in America? All of these questions will actually give you the same answer- a new mattress from the PranaSleep brand! Recently, our shopper George P. told us that his new PranaSleep mattress is delivering the “best sleep ever.” As you begin your search for a new mattress, we recommend you look into what makes PranaSleep a true step above the rest. 

About the PranaSleep Brand

While some brands come from a desire to make money, the PranaSleep story is one derived from something more special: a love for making mattresses that help people sleep better and live better. Since 1964, the Schiller family has been listening to and caring for the sleep needs of millions of customers. Jay Schiller, a pioneering retailer in the mattress industry, founded this company in order to offer the highest quality mattresses possible. In 2004, second generation owner Stephen Schiller took luxury mattress design even further. Built on his 20+ years of experience, he began incorporating a special blend of natural Talalay Latex to provide the perfect balance of support and pressure-relieving comfort. Unsurpassed knowledge, honest integrity, and attention to detail are what the PranaSleep brand was founded on. These remain the guiding principles all these years later. It’s no wonder these luxury mattresses are so great!

What Makes a PranaSleep Mattress so Luxurious?

You get what you pay for when it comes to your new mattress. If you do decide to go the luxury route, you’ll get a better product. Spending a little bit now can prevent you from waking up with aches and pains for years to come! What makes a PranaSleep luxury mattress better, a true step above the rest, is in the details of the design, materials, and craftsmanship.

PranaSleep mattresses are both handcrafted and made in America, which is something not many mattress brands can say. Every PranaSleep mattress is proudly made at a state-of-the-art factory located in Bonita Springs, Florida. These mattresses are meticulously made by master craftspeople using the latest innovations and technology throughout. Their caring concern is encapsulated in every product PranaSleep makes! The sleep systems are thoroughly scrutinized at each stage of production, culminating in a rigorous final inspection that ensures only the finest craftsmanship is accepted before your mattress is packaged and readied for the journey to your home.


PranaSleep doesn’t just hope you sleep great on a high-quality mattress, they guarantee it! They are so sure that their mattresses are incredibly well-made that they offer one of the best warranties in the mattress industry. They believe in the quality of their products and build them to last for years. Each PranaSleep mattress comes with a 10 Year Warranty against factory defects. You can sleep worry free for a whole decade!

What is so Special about Talalay Latex?

A PranaSleep mattress is among the most luxurious on the market. Some of this has to do with the brand’s patented Talalay Latex. This proprietary blend of latex helps your mattress conform to the curves of your body in order to provide comfort and support. This gives you the spinal alignment you need to wake up without aches and pains. 

Foam is not just foam! A premium latex mattress tends to feel lighter and have less hug than a similar option made from memory foam. This means you won’t sink as far down, which is great for people who tend to get hot when they sleep. They still relieve pain and pressure points in your back, joints, neck, and shoulder, but have a more general contour.

It’s also worth noting that this Talalay Latex comes from natural rubber, which is a renewable resource, and is responsibly sourced. PranaSleep latex mattresses are environmentally friendly, as well as built to last. If you prefer natural materials over harsh chemicals, these mattresses are for you!

You will find this material in several places. The PranaSleep Performance Talalay Core is composed of their proprietary Talalay Latex foam rubber, the highest-grade mattress foam available. It has more than triple the natural rubber as ordinary Talalay latex, offering perfect comfort and support. It is also within the PranaSleep Performance Talalay Comfort Layer. By layering densities of the Talalay latex, these mattresses offer maximum pressure relief and enhance conformance for a deeper, more restorative night of sleep. 

Other Materials and Technology Unique to PranaSleep

It’s not just the Talalay Latex that PranaSleep is proud of. The latest technological advances in mattress design are used on every PranaSleep mattress they manufacture. The PranaSleep Patented Perimeter Wrap is the brand’s unique process of wrapping the core and comfort layers with a durable non-woven fabric in order to stabilize the mattress. This Perimeter Wrap gives the mattress supreme internal stability, with edge-to-edge consistency across the entire sleep surface. There is also the Outlast Smart Fabric found on mattresses within the flagship collection. Originally developed by NASA, the UltraQuilt Layer is created from unique fabric that helps to facilitate the body’s cooling process, seamlessly absorbing excess body heat and releasing it back as needed. 

PranaSleep Mattress Collections

If you’re looking for true luxury each night, you're looking for PranaSleep. While this is true for every one of their mattresses, the actual design and materials used for each differs. Each PranaSleep mattress is unique and designed to meet specific wants and needs. This famed luxury brand offers the following mattress collections:


Each mattress in the flagship PranaSleep collection, which includes the Wahe, Vinyasa, Super Vinyasa, Samadhi, and Nidra, features the finest materials. The PranaSleep Performance Talalay Core® is composed of our exclusive, proprietary formula latex foam rubber. It is the highest grade blended latex on the market and features a very high content of natural rubber. They also feature the PranaSleep® Performance Talalay Comfort Layer, UltraQuilt® Layer, and PranaSleep Patented Perimeter Wrap®, so your bed gives you both the comfort and support you need.


These mattresses generously incorporate organic cotton and wool along with 100% natural Talalay Latex to deliver the ultimate luxury experience while steering clear of harmful, chemical-laden materials. The Dharma, Bhatki, Hatha, and Super Hatha all feature the OrganicsQuilt Layer. It features 100% natural Talalay Latex in the quilt, plus over five pounds of organic wool batting encapsulated in an organic cotton stretch fabric!


Featuring natural silk, wool, and cashmere, as well as a core and comfort layers composed of 100% natural Talalay latex, the Om Collection was meticulously designed to enhance every aspect of your sleep experience. The Guru, Patanjali, Vayu, Super Vayu, and Shanti are all a path to a peaceful night of sleep! 


These are PranaSleep’s innerspring mattresses, featuring a wrapped-coil construction that is ideal for those looking for pressure relief. Crafted of unique-geometry pocketed coils for more bounce and added pressure relief, the Moon, Sky, Peace, and Earth mattresses feature a double row of firmer gauge coils surrounding the perimeter. 


The PranaSleep Everlast™ core is inside each mattress in the Lotus Collection. This serves to provide a supple and flexible feel without sacrificing the support your spine needs. This collection includes the Namaste 5 Series, Pranayama 5 Series, and Asana 6 Series. With varying amounts of Performance Talalay Latex for added comfort and support, the Lotus Collection allows you to sleep on a luxury mattress for a price that can’t be beat.

It should come to no surprise that nearly all PranaSleep mattress reviews we see are positive. Here’s what real shoppers, just like you, have said after they’ve had a chance to sleep on their new PranaSleep mattress:

Mary N, PranaSleep Karma Moon Plush “Great! Very firm {in the core} but soft on the surface. Love it!”

Adjustable Bed Bases

All of these mattresses are able to be paired with an adjustable bed base, raising both your upper and lower body, which nearly guarantees your best night of sleep ever. This is made easy by purchasing an adjustable bed base by PranaSleep at the same time as your new mattress. We carry several options, including those with Euroslats. The slats in a EuroSlat Foundation are hard beechwood imported from Germany and secured in rubber couplets that are designed to pivot side to side and head to toe, contouring to your natural body curves. They are designed to move under the weight of your body as you sleep. This ability to be pressed down means a EuroSlat Foundation offers more pressure relief than a mattress alone can provide. That’s not all these bed bases do! For example, the PranaSleep Adjustable Om EuroSlat Base 2.0 has preset controls that instantly place you in the perfect position for pressure-relief. You can also unwind with a relaxing massage. There is an Anti-Snore Feature which gently raises the head to help alleviate snoring, a Sleep Timer Option that can be set to return to flat after 10-90 minutes, and a Gentle-Wake Alarm that can be set up to 24 hours in advance.


You’re not done completing your perfect sleep system just yet. Did you know that PranaSleep also makes high-quality pillows? What makes PranaSleep pillows so special is that they feature the company’s proprietary blend of Talalay Latex, just like the mattresses. You can get the PranaSleep Queen Pillow 3.5” thick or 4.5” thick, whichever you prefer. You also have a choice in whether you want it to feel medium firm or medium soft. We’re regularly told by customers how much they love the feeling and support this pillow provides. Cara B calls them “The only pillows I want on my bed” and Nickole T. says, “These pillows are perfect in every way.” 

Everyone has different needs when it comes to what they need in order to sleep well and live well. While we hope this information helps you better understand the PranaSleep brand and what options you have within it, you may have a better idea of the best mattress for you by coming into a City Mattress store and lying down on one.
