All the latex mattress toppers I cover in this article can be bought online in NZ and ship from within NZ, which makes shopping for them really convenient. All three are excellent quality, but only one mattress topper offers you free shipping AND a long sleep trial, which are two critical things to look for when you’re investing in bedding items online.
Top Choice: Peacelily Mattress Topper
Peacelily is an online only retailer specialising in high quality natural latex mattresses, mattress toppers, and pillows. They have a strong base of very happy customers both here in NZ and also in Australia, where latex is a very popular bedding material for their hotter climates.
Because Peacelily sells their products exclusively online, you make some big savings when you buy their products. You’ll note they have the best value mattress topper of this overview, with the best terms and conditions (free shipping, longest sleep trial)
Peacelily is actually my favourite mattress topper in the whole country.
The Peacelily mattress topper features:
- Organic cotton cover
- 6cm natural latex core (plush feel)
- Free shipping
- 100 Night sleep trial (if you don’t like it, you’ll get a refund within that time, no hidden fees)
- 10 Year warranty
- Price range: $409 – $759
Two More Mattress Toppers:
Want to see what some of your other options are? Here are two extremely high quality mattress toppers from NZ brands you might be interested in.
1. Innature Latex Topper
Innature is a well established and well known New Zealand company that makes a high quality range of natural furniture. Some of their most popular items are their mattresses and toppers. If you’re in Auckland, you can visit them at their showroom in New Lynn, otherwise you can buy their products online. https://innature.co.nz/your-bed/organic-mattresses/latex-toppers/

2. Natural Beds Mattress Toppers
Natural Beds have proudly been making exactly what they say (natural beds and bedding products) since 1983.
These guys are going to be your best choice if you’re looking for a FIRM topper, as they are one of the only companies offering you a firm option.
Natural Beds branded products are also sold by Futonz, who you may have also come across in your research (I’ve left them off this overview since they’re the same products). Like Innature, Natural Beds are based in Auckland and have a showroom in Oratia. Otherwise, shop online. text. https://naturalbeds.nz/latex-core-topper-5

Why Peacelily Is My Top Choice:
It’s probably pretty clear already why the Peacelily mattress topper is my top choice, but let me reiterate if you still need convincing.
I think Peacelily offers the best value for money. You’re getting 6cm of high quality natural latex (1cm more than most other brands) with a beautiful plush feel, for a top price for the largest size of $659 ($759 for the firm option with more dense latex). That’s a lot less than the others. Sure, Peacelily only offers you the one firmness option but most people buy toppers to add softness to their mattress and they’ve got the perfect level of softness and support for you here.
Peacelily is the only latex mattress topper in NZ that gives you a 100 night sleep trial. This is extremely generous, as some other “online only” companies won’t even give you any trial for their toppers. Yes, the two other brands I’ve talked about in this article give you a trial, but it’s really too short to be of much use and you have to pay return shipping (which will be pricey, latex is a heavy material).
Peacelily offers the best warranty on their topper, with 10 years (double what other brands are offering, though they should all have a similar lifespan given the quality of materials).
I really feel that Peacelily offers you the best value for money, the best online purchasing conditions, and they’re a nice team to deal with. I highly recommend you choose Peacelily for your latex topper.
