What Makes Turmerry's Twin XL Mattresses the Best?
At Turmerry, we value product quality, customer safety, and customer satisfaction. To obtain all
three with each purchase, we ensure that our mattresses are sourced and manufactured with proper care.
The latex featured in our beds is
organically raised and sustainably sourced from Sri Lanka, after which it undergoes either the Dunlop/Talalay
manufacturing processes. Processing latex foam is a process that imbues it with the softness, strength,
and durability required to provide you with a calm night's sleep.
The eco-friendly materials we use in our latex beds are tested and certified by organizations
GOTS, OEKO-TEX, eco-INSTITUT, and LGA.
Additionally, we offer you free shipping (across the US), a 120-night free trial period, and a 100% money-back
guarantee. Finding such high-quality mattresses as ours is a tougher task than you think!
You Can't Go Wrong with Turmerry Twin XL Mattresses!
Opting for a Turmerry twin XL bed means you get to enjoy a horde of benefits, such as -
Firm Spine Support
All of our mattress types aim to provide your spine with a rigid support, ensuring minimal risk
misalignment and its after-effects.
The high-quality construction and high-density foam of our beds keep your spine in a neutral position by
preventing sinkage that is often experienced in memory foam mattresses.
Exceptional Pressure Relief
The buildup of stress in your pressure points calls for a mattress that effectively offers pressure relief,
rejuvenating you for the day ahead. Our mattresses conform very well to your body contours,
spreading out your body weight evenly while also reducing the pressure on your body. A good pressure relief is
recommended for side sleepers and thin people.
Hate how a memory foam mattress pulls you into it? Our mattress can mitigate that by providing you with a bouncy
surface. Every time you move around on our mattress, you do so without being restricted.
Additionally, our mattresses quickly adjust to your body every time you move, providing precise support and
comfort without fail.
With most twin XL mattresses being injected with cheap synthetic fillers nowadays, we've taken it upon ourselves
to provide you with a safe mattress. The components in our mattress are tested for harmful levels of
chemicals and are certified safe for human health. We also plant a tree for every mattress purchase
you make, helping bring Mother Earth back to her true glory!
Turmerry mattresses do not trap body heat like memory foam, but are instead naturally breathable through their
open-cell structure and perforations. The ability to promote airflow helps reduce body heat, making our
twin XL bed perfect for hot sleepers. We even provide a breathable cover so that our mattresses
don't trap heat!
Our all-foam mattresses and hybrid mattresses both provide a good amount of motion isolation,
enough to ensure that movement doesn't end up waking you or your partner at night. Motion isolation is crucial
for couples with restless sleepers, light sleepers, and/or combination sleepers.
Latex is a highly durable material with the resilience to last anywhere from 10-20+ years!
Investing in a mattress can be an expensive task, so it's always best to make sure you're getting a long-lasting
product worth your money. To back up this claim, we even provide a long warranty period that resembles the
estimated lifespan of our mattresses!

Twin XL Natural and Organic Latex Mattress
This all-foam mattress features three or four organic Dunlop latex foam layers, imbued with a layer of natural wool for fire resistance and encased in a plush soft organic cotton cover. Side sleepers, back sleepers, and
stomach sleepers all get to enjoy the all-foam design of our Natural and Organic Latex
You can tailor the Twin XL Natural and Organic Latex Mattress to your sleep preferences by choosing a different
firmness level (soft, medium, firm) and height (8", 10", 12").

for all sleeping positions.
Twin XL Egg Crate Mattress

these all-foam beds are topped with an additional layer of egg crate foam, which contours better, offers
greater pressure relief, and reduces the risk of bed

you tailor them to your sleep style and sleep position.
Twin XL Mattress - Buyer's Guide
What is a Twin XL mattress?
A twin XL-size mattress is 38 inches wide and 80 inches long. Although it has the same width as
standard twin mattresses, the "XL" in its name signifies it is five inches longer, making it suitable for
sleepers above 6 feet.
Twin XLs are often used by
tall people in small spaces. Like twin mattresses, it is budget-friendly as well. However, the width of a Twin
XL mattress usually limits it to solo sleepers.
How much does a Twin XL mattress cost?
Twin XL mattresses can cost anywhere from $200 to $800+, depending on the mattress construction,
material, and brand you choose.
When gunning for the best mattresses on the market, you can expect to pay higher prices, starting at $600-$700.
Mid-quality mattresses can start from $400-500, while lower-quality mattresses come with a lower price tag,
starting from $200-$300.
The best Twin XL mattress will often be part of a reputable brand that uses high-quality materials and
construction. They also tend to last longer, provide better comfort, and come with a wide range of benefits that
will be absent in a mid to low-quality mattress.
Should you choose the Twin XL mattress size?
There are a few factors that decide whether a Twin XL suits you or not. For an easier understanding, let's divide
it into two sections, one representing those who should choose a Twin XL and the other representing those who
You should choose a Twin XL mattress if -
You have limited space: Twin XLs are perfect for studio apartments, dorm rooms, guest rooms, and
other such tight spaces. As they are narrow, they do not take up much floor space. This also leaves you room to
spare for storage, furniture, etc.
You are tall: Individuals who are taller than 6 feet will find a standard twin mattress to be
short. Twin XL mitigates this issue by being longer and providing more space to accommodate your full body.
You sleep solo: Solo sleepers, especially those who are thin or average weight, will find a twin
XL to be adequate for their sleep needs. It provides a good sleeping space without taking up much room.
You're on a budget: Twin XLs are not as costly as a queen or king mattress, making them the
ideal candidate for those who are on a budget. Moreover, if you're seeking a mattress for a guest room or other
needs unrelated to yours, then twin XL mattresses can be a cost-effective option.
You shouldn't choose a Twin XL mattress if -
You require more sleeping space: Restless sleepers and combination sleepers like to move around
when sleeping. This calls for more mattress space, which may not be provided by a Twin XL, especially if you're
a heavy person. A full-size mattress would better suit those who require more sleeping space.
You sleep with a partner: Sharing a twin XL is almost impossible, as it is narrow and can only
accommodate a single person at a time. If you want to share your mattress with a partner, seek out a full,
queen, or king mattress.
You have spacious rooms: Placing a twin XL inside a spacious room would only ruin the aesthetic
and would even be a waste of the allotted space. Queen, king, and cal king mattresses are best suited for
You aren't on a budget: If you can afford a bigger mattress, then it's recommended to go for it.
A bigger mattress can future-proof your sleeping situation better than a twin XL can. For instance, when your
significant other wants to move in with you, a twin XL would be a deterrent, whereas a full or queen mattress
would be welcoming.
Mattress shopping: Tips and Techniques
A buyer's guide wouldn't be a buyer's guide without some sort of tips being shared on mattress shopping, would
it? So here you go, some tips and techniques to implement when shopping around for your ideal mattress -
Get a feel of what you need
We all have differing sleep requirements. Some of us prefer practicing the side sleeping position, while others
prefer being back and stomach sleepers. Then there are all the other desires we have, such as optimal firmness,
comfort, motion isolation, cooling, etc.
Given all this, it is recommended that you get a feel for the type of mattress you find suitable for you.
Go to a nearby mattress store, let the staff know what you like, and then try out different mattresses
until you hit gold!
Place a primary focus on finding the right mattress height, firmness, material, and construction.
Review, review, review
With so many mattress reviews available, both online and offline, there is no excuse not to go over at least a
few of them. Reviews and testimonies can give you a proper insight into what a certain mattress represents.
Do the claims made by the retailer hold up? Is the mattress working out for the majority of the buyers? Does the
mattress really offer all these benefits? All these queries can be quelled by going over customer reviews.
Oh, and while you're at it, don't forget to go over the reviews left for the brand as well. See
how customers review their customer services, policies, etc., and gain insight into the brand's reputation.
Compare various mattresses and brands and see which one offers you the best deal in terms of price,
quality, and satisfaction.
Compare the benefits offered by different mattresses. Keep the ones that fit your sleep style and budget. Discard
those that do not.
Compare the trial periods, warranties, customer services, and return policies offered by different brands. Which
ones are hassle-free, and which ones aren't? Do they offer services like free shipping or free white glove
Compare it all and decide on the brand/mattress that best suits your needs.
Sign up for newsletters
Newsletters are a great way to keep up with the current status of a mattress/brand. You get to
know about special discounts, sales, offers, services, etc., that you otherwise would be oblivious to.
Wait for sales
Mattress sales make an
occasional comeback each year. The trick is to seek out certain days on which they arrive. The most
prominent mattress sales happen before/during/after occasions like Thanksgiving, New Year,
Mattress sales could also be specific to a certain brand, where they host events like a clearance sale. Or it
could happen during the months of March, April, May, and December, when new mattress models are announced, and
older ones are discounted.
Do not rush it
Investing in a mattress is an activity that requires patience and care. Go for the wrong kind of mattress, and
you may end up losing a huge chunk of your hard-earned money. So take your time, do your research, and
never rush into a new mattress purchase.
How does Twin XL compare to other mattress sizes?
Twin XL falls between a standard twin and full mattress and measures 38" x 80". Here is how it compares against
other mattress sizes:
Twin XL vs.
Twin -- Twin XL is the extra large version of a standard twin, which is
38" x 75". The additional five inches of length offered by a twin XL is required for tall sleepers above 6 feet.
Since both mattress sizes share the same width, they fit well in small spaces.
Twin XL vs. Full -- A full-size mattress measures 54"
x 75", letting it provide a spacious surface for solo sleepers and heavy people. Full mattresses can even be
used as a budget option for thin couples who can compromise on sleeping space. A twin XL is longer than a full
mattress by 5 inches, which makes it a better fit for tall sleepers. But it is much smaller in width, so
sleeping space will be limited.
Twin XL vs. Queen/King/Cal King -- A queen mattress (60" x 80"), king mattress (76" x 80"), and
cal king mattress (72" x
84") are much costlier than a twin XL and provide greater sleeping space for couples and families. Twin
XL is best suited to solo sleepers and is incomparable to the benefits offered by a queen/king/cal king.
What are the five prominent Twin XL mattress types?
Scouring today's mattress market, you will come upon five unique types of twin XL beds. They differ from each
other in terms of mattress materials, construction, comfort, and support. Some may be ideal for you, while
others may not. Find out which one suits your needs best:
Innerspring beds are one of the oldest types of mattresses to exist. They use spring coils as the
core and cover it with a thin layer of fabric for comfort. Traditional innerspring mattresses
to be made out of Bonnell/continuous coils and often came in a luxury firm model, offering higher levels of
Nowadays, you can find innersprings with offset/pocket coils, which offer more room for comfort. Innersprings
offer edge support, firmness, bounce, and affordability but tend to lack motion isolation, durability,
noiselessness, and pressure relief.
Memory Foam Mattress
mattresses use layers of memory foam, a synthetic substance obtained from
polyurethane. Memory foam does the opposite of innersprings by offering a higher level of
contouring and cushioning. You can feel yourself sinking into the memory foam when you lay on it.
remembers your body contours but may forget to offer enough spine support.
Traditional memory foam beds have a synthetic composition and tend to off-gas VOCs. Additionally, their
high-density foam entraps heat more, leading to discomfort for hot sleepers. These issues can be partly
mitigated by a copper-infused memory foam or gel memory foam mattress.
Latex mattresses are an organic mattress type where the materials are obtained from nature. Natural
is the core substance here. It is liquid rubber obtained from rubber trees and manufactured
foam using the Dunlop/Talalay method. Latex mattresses use layers of latex foam and usually offer a
Latex beds are eco-friendly and offer a medium soft/medium firm feel that accommodates all sleep positions.
They can also offer a
plethora of other benefits, such as edge support, motion isolation, cooling, etc. However, due to
costly nature of latex processing, latex mattresses can be more expensive than other mattress types.
Like innersprings, hybrid mattresses combine spring support cores with foam comfort layers.
they find a balance between both by making the comfort layer thicker. As a result, hybrids offer the best of
both worlds. Their medium-firm feel makes them perfect for side sleepers, back sleepers, stomach sleepers,
Hybrids tend to be more expensive than innersprings, as they use higher quality materials as well as thicker
foams. Springs like pocket coils, and foams like latex or memory foam, are usually what go into a hybrid
mattress. Thus, you get a bouncy mattress that can offset many of the drawbacks of traditional innerspring
otherwise known as airbeds, use air chambers as support cores. These adjustable bed chambers
filled with air using a manual or automatic pump. Airbeds are ideally used as temporary bedding options for
travel, guest rooms, etc. Permanent use is not recommended, as they lack the support offered by other
Air mattresses are usually made of materials like textile-reinforced rubber/plastic. They are versatile in
use and can be carried around with you once deflated. They aren't breathable, however, making them
with hot sleepers.
What is the best mattress type: Memory foam or Latex?
While both memory foam and latex come with their own set of benefits, we would prefer latex
more. As latex is an organic material that is manufactured sustainably, it doesn't contain harmful
levels of chemicals like memory foam does. Moreover, latex is a safe material, both for you and the environment.
Putting aside the eco-friendly factor, latex mattresses provide a balance between comfort and support. It is also
bouncy and responsive to your movements, making it ideal for side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers.
Latex foam has an open-cell structure, which, along with the perforations placed on it, makes it a breathable,
cooling mattress for hot sleepers to enjoy. Latex is durable and resilient as well, with the capability to last
for 15-20+ years without sagging.
Memory foam fails in many of these aspects. While it does provide a great level of contouring, it retains
heat, off-gasses VOCs, and sinks you into it, which can negatively affect the support for the spine's
What features should you look for in a Twin XL mattress?
Before finalizing your mattress purchase, ensure you have these features present in your twin XL bed -
Mattress Firmness -- Mattresses usually come in soft, medium, and firm firmness levels. Soft and
medium-firm mattresses are good for thin/average-weight side sleepers. Firm mattresses are more suited to heavy
back and stomach sleepers.
Mattress Height -- You can find mattresses coming in at 8", 10", or 12" heights. The
higher/thicker the mattress, the more supportive it is. Therefore, the heavier you are, the higher your mattress
should be. Bed height can also affect your bed mobility,
so be aware of that.
Quality Material -- Having a quality material in your mattress, such as latex or memory foam,
can drastically improve the level of benefits it offers. For instance, latex is highly durable and bouncy, while
memory foam provides wonderful contouring.
Temperature Regulation -- Studies have shown that temperature plays a
huge role in the quality of sleep we get. Hot sleepers usually love a mattress that can provide them
with a cool night's sleep. Go for mattresses with an open-celled structure so that there is unrestricted airflow
through them, keeping you cool. Some materials, like wool, are good temperature regulators, keeping you cool in
the summer and warm in the winter.
Noise and Motion Isolation -- Light sleepers are often jolted awake by a slight noise or motion.
If you sleep with a light sleeper or are a light sleeper yourself, then a mattress that can isolate noise and
motion is a must. An all-foam twin XL bed usually provides this better than spring beds.
Resilient Longevity -- Make your investment in a mattress worth it by making sure it lasts for a
long time. Latex is a great mattress material for durability. It can often last for upwards of 20 years with
Good Trial Period and Warranty -- When you order a mattress online, it should come with a trial
period that lasts at least a month. It takes time to get adjusted to a new mattress, and a trial period ensures
you can back out of the wrong mattress purchase. Additionally, make sure your mattress warranty is trustworthy,
lasts a long time, and covers a wide range of issues.
Factors to consider about yourself during a Twin XL mattress purchase
Sleeping position, sleeping environment, body weight, medical conditions, and budget are the five things you need
to consider about yourself when making a mattress purchase. Let's take a deeper look into each one -
Side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers each require a certain type of mattress for comfortable
Side sleepers usually fare well with a medium-firm mattress, as it provides spine support
without putting too much pressure on the hips and shoulders.
The best mattress for back and stomach sleepers tends to be firm. These sleeping positions
mostly require a healthy amount of spine support, and firm mattresses provide that best. Medium-firm
can also work well for back sleepers and stomach sleepers, provided that they're of average body weight.
Changes to our sleeping environment can be a factor that ruins or revitalizes our sleep. And as we all know,
is a necessity for proper functioning on a daily basis.
When buying a twin XL bed, make sure you have a mattress base that fits it.
Do you hate sleeping hot? Then your twin XL bed should be breathable and cooling.
Are you constantly woken up by little noises and disturbances? Buy an all-foam twin XL bed that doesn't creak
under your weight.
Don't like sleeping on the same firmness level? Buy a flippable mattress that has two different firmnesses on
Looking out for such things in your bed can ensure that it creates the sleeping environment you prefer.
The heavier you are, the more support you need. Therefore, your body weight can determine the
and height you need from your mattress.
Drawing from our experience, we would recommend a "soft" mattress firmness for people below 130 lbs., a
mattress firmness for people between 130-230 lbs., and a "firm" mattress firmness for people above 230 lbs.
Likewise, for the mattress height, we would suggest 8-10 inches for people below or between 130-230 lbs. and
10-12 inches for people above 230 lbs.
Conditions like allergies, pain, and sleep apnea all factor into being disruptive to your sleep. Some,
all, of these can be alleviated if you choose the right kind of bed.
For allergies, you should consider avoiding mattress materials you are allergic to. Covering your
mattress with a protector and maintaining it well will also help.
For pain, you should seek out a mattress that provides ample support for your spine's curvature and
for your entire body.
For sleep apnea, you should try out adjustable beds, which let you elevate your upper body and keep your
open. Investing in a firm mattress and a sturdy pillow can also help.
A twin XL bed is on the lower end of mattress price points. They can range anywhere from $200-$800+,
a variety of factors such as mattress height, material, construction, and brand.
Of course, it should go without saying that a higher-priced twin XL bed will offer better benefits than
ones. These benefits can include better durability, warranty, cushioning, support, material, construction,
Determine how much you're willing to spend on your desired twin XL bed and assess whether it gives
what you seek out of it. Waiting for mattress sales could be a good idea to get a few hundred
dollars slashed off your favorite mattress.
