Latex Mattress Reviews
Growing up in the mattress industry, and specifically mattress production, I have seen all types of mattresses come through the pipeline. My latex mattress reviews are from one who has manufactured virtually every type of mattress seen in a local mattress store showroom.
There are many latex mattress reviews online but I sincerely doubt that any of those reviews come from a source that truly understands what it takes to make a durable and yet comfortable mattress at the same time. Most just want to get you to their website and sell you something. Consumers need to be made aware that there are many choices when it comes to selecting the right latex mattress and they are NOT all equal in design.
Latex Mattress Reviews for Side Sleepers
Anyone searching out latex mattress reviews is already aware of the many qualities these rubber mattresses possess so I don’t really need to get into all the benefits in this article. You probably already know that there are two types of latex mattress processes, Dunlop and Talalay. Dunlop produces a more dense and less conforming version while the Talalay process renders a more airy and more conforming product which suits side sleepers much better. You’ve probably also read latex mattress reviews about natural latex vs. blended latex and are now thoroughly confused or more likely just misinformed by someone trying to sell you the more expensive all natural latex varieties or combinations.
Pure and simple, blended latex produces stronger and more impression resistant latex and is a top choice in these latex mattress reviews. That’s right; you were probably misled into believing the all natural latex was a better product, which would be wrong. Here is a quote directly from Latex International, the foremost United States authority on this subject, “100% natural latex cores experience 5 to10% more mattress core height loss (i.e. body impressions) due to wear and tear than our blended Talalay and 2 to 3 times more loss (softening) due to repeated sitting and sleeping”. For the rest of the article go to: Latex Foam So you see, I’m not trying to convince you to buy the more expensive natural latex, but rather presenting you with honest and fact based latex mattress reviews from quality sources.
With soaring prices on natural rubber these days (30% increase in 2011 so far) many manufacturers are trying to keep the cost down on these beds by offering only partial latex in the design. For the purest this is probably not the way to go but for the practical person it can offer a good compromise. In my latex mattress reviews here is what I believe to be a good way to go to not only save a considerable amount of money, but also get a comfortable and durable mattress. Start with a good plant based poly foam support foam (soy foam or castor foam) much like what you already have in your house and sit on it every night while watching tv, sofa cushions. This base foam would be 5-6 inches and then topped with 3” of either Talalay blend or Dunlop latex. Overall height after adding a quilted cover would be around 9.5 inches which is perfect for doing the job and keeping the costs down. Standard fitted sheets will work just fine on this height of mattress.
In doing research for my
latex mattress reviews
post I have found several companies already doing this type of design but in my opinion not quite getting it right and do not meet the qualification to pass these latex mattress reviews. The models I have seen only have 2” of latex on the top which will only give one a small sense of the attributes of a latex mattress. 3” is what is necessary to get major benefits and experience the pressure relief latex mattresses are famous for. I can see this design having great commercial success for kid’s beds, rv mattresses, guest rooms and also function as a main mattress for those trying to save some coin in tough economic times. Knowing what I know about mattress manufacturing costs these days, this type of bed should be available for around $1000 in a King size making it a great option over those conventional spring mattresses in the same price range not to mention my latex mattress reviews best choice.
Recommendation Based on Latex Mattress Reviews
So in conclusion to my latex mattress reviews, let me just say that there is no wrong choice when it comes to buying a latex bed. It will offer the best ROI of any type mattress money can buy. If you have deep pockets and are not affected by the economy, get a 100% latex mattress. If you sleep mostly on your back, opt for one made of Dunlop foam. If you sleep mostly on your side, Talalay latex should suit you better. If you are looking to get the absolute most bang for your buck, seek out one made from the specifications I have outlined above. Lastly, continue with your latex mattress reviews and just ask yourself which makes the most sense for you and stick with it.
