Want To Buy A Latex Mattress Then Here Is Everything That You Need To Know

Latex Mattress

Latex mattress is basically made of pure latex which is naturally available and is the best seller among health conscious buyers also called as green buyers.

Recently I has visited my friend’s beach house. Stayed there for a couple of days enjoying the warmth of the sun with all of that tan running over my body. I really had a good time. Especially enjoyed her guestroom with the double bed and latex mattress which she had opted for it. I am person who wake up with terrible back pain every morning and end up screwing my whole day. But to my utter surprise I woke up with a happy face without even having a thought about any aches and pain. Well I guess latex mattress did all the magic for me as I really felt so comfortable. I had a great sleep which I never had since ages.


This was my first encounter with a latex mattress. As you all know that it has a limited availability and are not easily seen in most of the showrooms. They are a rare species in the mattress industry which has all the features of a memory foam mattress without its disadvantages being tailed to it. Yes it does not produce heat or emit some sort of smell like memory foam mattress since it is a natural product.

Here a few things that every buyer should know about a latex mattress. I will explain how I felt sleeping on top of it.

There are two types of latex mattress generally available

  • Completely made of latex and no other additional materials are added
  • Hybrid variety which includes upper latex layer and lower layer may be of foam or springs or whatever the maker likes to insert for base support.

So basically you can chose form these two varieties. But I would suggest to go for the former one as it is a complete natural product and feels so good to coddle on top it. On the cost side pure latex mattress may price a bit higher than the hybrid varieties. But when you can get a good deal of sleep why compromise with mattress for a few extra bucks. After all you are going to invest for a long time so it shouldn’t go waste.

For those who are having normal back pain and muscle strains caused due to office jobs and other household chores I would suggest buying a latex mattress. It really works. I had already replaced my old mattress for a new latex mattress with a medium firmness level. This is the first time where I could actually try a mattress and then buy one for my use.

Features Of Latex Mattress

Latex mattress are available with varying level of firmness for all sleeping positions. It does not produce any odor or even emit harmful substances which may cause indoor pollution. Basically am on the heavy side on my weight scale and my 10” latex mattress supports my body very evenly.

Latex mattresses are easy to maintain and mostly sold by reputed dealers. So you don’t have to worry on the warranty and return policy stuffs. I bought my mattress online where it is mostly available and it was delivered promptly.

There are hundreds of doubles available for a same product. So don’t get fooled and make sure that you only buy organic variety which is purely natural. Natural latex mattress contains wool cover instead of layers of flame retardant chemicals so it is really a good catch.

I am really happy for I have got the sleep I was craving for since a long time. Buying this mattress is like investing on two conventional mattresses at one shot as it stays for a long time without any wear and tear.

I recently got hold upon a website called Olejo stores that boasts of having anything from everything you need to enhance the look of your home. This includes bedding to lightings to fountains for your home. They even have mattresses of top brands such as Spring Air, Serta, Beauty Rest etc. and more. In this article, we are taking a dig on the mattress section. Basically, that’s what we do here. We cover everything related to mattress here in this website.

Olejo Stores Reviews

To be honest, Olejo Stores has only handful of “good” reviews to talk about. Rest of them range from bad to worst.

Good reviews claim that company is quite easy to deal with. They also offer you excellent support right from ordering the product to delivery to post delivery issues, if any.

Now comes the dark side. Many sites such as resellerratings.com, olejo.pissedconsumer.com have reviews from users who say that the mattress are of poor quality. The customer service even lack the decency to help them sort the issues users are facing.

In fact, customer service is one of the worst ever faced by users when it comes to mattress companies online. One user says that he has been charged twice for the mattress he purchased and when asked for a refund was put on hold without a prompt reply or refund.

This is something Olejo stores must keep in mind and make immediate changes, if they want to survive in online business. This is costing them good customer support as well.

Here are few of the Olejo stores mattress consumer reviews.

“Not at all happy” – (from resellerratings.com)

I do not recommend this company to anyone. Purchased a king mattress and two boxsprings. They claimed delivery in 24 hours to 5 days as mentioned in the website. The delivery men came with one of the two box and the mattress. What the heck are we supposed to do with one boxspring for a king mattress. After making good amount of calls, the company claimed that the bed was made to order. I never heard of such a thing as made to order mattress. They also blamed the manufacturer for the one box spring. What we saved from the company we lost in stress, both physical and mental.

“Beware of them” – (resellerratings.com)

I am dealing with bunch of BS with Olejo stores over a recliner that I purchased and some of it broke right after putting it together. I am not sure how this will turn out to be but anyone who is planning to buy from them – BEWARE. Oh, another thing, they tell you no tax, but will charge it anyway.

They however, did refund my money which I didn’t expect but use your own judgment while buying anything.

“Bad customer service” – (olejo.pissedconsumer.com)

I ordered bunk beds for me and my husband. The sales rep knew what the beds were meant for. The beds arrived 10 days late from the expected date with “Donco Kids” stamped on the boxes. I called to complain and was told that Olejo does not carry any adult bunk beds and if I want to return them I had to pay 40% of the sales price in fees. Worst it took more than a month to get a supervisor answer my emails. I was re-directed and absolutely ignored.

This conpany should not be allowed to be in business. They care less about the customers satisfaction and primary objective is to sell something just to make few bucks.

Conclusion

I have been writing about mattress reviews for a while now and this is clearly not a good news for Olejo Stores. Now, I need not ramble further about the company as this is a clear cut evidence that the quality might be good (since they are affiliates of other branded mattress companies) but the delivery and the customer support play a crucial role when it comes to any company and Olejo Stores clearly lack these two pillars.

Latex Foam Mattress

Latex Mattress

Latex foam mattresses are made from either natural latex, extracted from rubber trees or latex can also be produced synthetically from petroleum products. Latex Foam Mattresses are firm and also pressure relieving and provides great relief while sleeping. Latex foam mattresses are preferred by users who do not want their mattresses to be very soft like the memory foam mattresses.

About Latex Foam Mattresses

Latex foam mattresses are made of either latex from top to bottom, or a layer of latex layer over regular foam or the reverse, that is a foam layer over a latex base. The advantage of latex is that it provides uniform support throughout the mattress.

Some of the benefits of foam mattresses

  • Latex foam mattresses are breathable and resilient and hence it retains less heat and retains its form throughout the life of the mattress
  • Latex foam mattresses are hypo-allergic since latex being a natural mattress can protect users against dust mites. This is very useful for people suffering from allergy
  • Latex foam mattresses are soft like the memory foam mattresses but have the property of pushing back, which is what gives this mattress the firmness. This is very useful for people suffering from back pain. The pressure relief is especially high for mattresses with a higher density of latex
  • The customer satisfaction of memory foam mattress is quite high at about 80%
  • It is easier for users to get in and out of latex foam mattresses since the mattress returns to its original shape much faster
  • If the foundation of the latex foam mattress is strong and in good condition, this mattress hardly makes any noise
  • Latex foam mattresses are well suited for love making and there are hardly any customer complaints when compared to other types of mattresses
  • Though the motion isolation in latex mattresses is not as good as in memory foam mattresses, the customer ratings were fairly good. So the person sleeping on the other side of the bed is not disturbed by the turning and tossing of their partner

Some negative feedbacks regarding latex foam mattresses

  • Latex foam mattresses are one of the heaviest mattresses available and hence customers may find it difficult to move it or rotate it and it is difficult to transport this mattresses. Even simple tasks like changing sheets will pose a problem
  • Initial odor or off gassing is there for latex mattresses since all mattresses may not have completely natural latex in them. Synthetic latex is used in many latex foam mattresses
  • Latex mattresses are more expensive when compared to other mattresses of similar size and features
  • About 10 % of the users have reported impressions or sagging in their mattresses within a short time after use. Mattresses using talalay or natural latex do not have this problem. The problem was seen mainly in latex foam mattresses using dunlop or blended latex. Some users complained that the mattress becomes very soft with use.
  • Latex mattresses are not as widely available as the other types of mattresses.
  • So customers who want only latex mattresses will have to hunt around to find the mattress that suits their preference

Overall latex foam mattresses are well liked by most of the customers. Most of the good brands of latex mattresses have a warranty of 10-20 years with a 10 year non-prorated warranty. Customers though say that the average life span of the mattress is only around 8 years.

If you are sure of buying a Latex Foam Mattress, you can even select a good one online. The cost will work out to be cheaper and many good companies have a 90 day return policy in case you are dissatisfied with the product. Latex mattresses which use natural latex are the best in class among the latex foam mattresses,

Adjustable Beds – Reviews & Consumer Reports

Adjustable Beds

Adjustable Beds Review

What are adjustable beds?

Before we go into the reviews and consumer reports of adjustable beds, we will first see what adjustable beds are. Adjustable beds or bed bases/ foundations have been designed to elevate the head or leg position of the users. The adjustable beds are used either by people with health problems, post surgical recovery or by users to just lie down comfortably in bed to watch television or read books or just to rest. Users have to choose the size and design that suits their needs. Most of the queen and king sized beds can be adjusted on both sides separately.


Features of adjustable beds – For customers to look before buying

    • The underneath of the adjustable beds should be strong and flexible. The plywood deck should have a minimum thickness of 5/8” or 3/4” thick to make them durable and to prevent warping of flexing. The attached parts should also be securely fixed and should not come out over time since most of the wiring harnesses and massage motors are fixed underneath.

  • Size is one of the first features to look for while buying adjustable beds. The sizes available are twin size for single users, and queen and king size for couples and those recovering after surgery (for post surgical users, king size is preferred).
  • The mattress used on surfaces can vary from memory foam, coil or air beds all of which have models to suit adjustable beds.
  • The motors used for adjusting the beds are important and they should be durable. AC or DC motors are used, although DC motors are less expensive, Motors should be UL listed and rated.
  • Noise is another feature to look for in mattresses. The lesser the noise, the better.
  • Hand controls are available to adjust the bed positions and users should look for easily understandable menu options. The remote could be wireless for aesthetics, or wired remotes are also available for users who are forgetful and keep searching for things.
  • Users should also check the warranty terms when buying adjustable beds. Warranty terms can include additional costs involved for damage to beds or other broken parts. With a little additional cost, the warranty can be extended to include all these factors.
  • Customers looking for aesthetics can check for the fabric of the mattresses used, the placement of the motor (whether the mounting of the motors are visible or not) and whether the finish of the bed is appealing and good.
  • Some of the high end features that are useful include some app features and programmable memory positions that make it easy to remember the preferred positions for adjustable beds. Another very convenient feature is the presence of USB charger ports on either side of the bed. Back lit remotes help to adjust sleep positions at night.
  • Most adjustable beds should be able to support weight between 250 to 600 pounds including the weight of the mattress and the users.

Reviews & Consumer Reports of adjustable beds

The most important part of adjustable beds is the sturdy chassis or superstructure as this is the core of any adjustable bed.

Most customers who reviewed adjustable beds looked for the comfort, convenience and easy maintenance. Warranties too played a big part in judging the adjustable beds as there were mechanical and electrical parts involved.

Reviews from the various sites showed an overall satisfaction rate of 93% for adjustable bed bases / foundations. Most of the popular brands that were reviewed had more or less the same satisfaction level, since the ratings tend to vary for different features in each of the brands.

It was found to be a misconception that higher priced models had better consumer satisfaction. The prices of adjustable mattresses are in the range of $700 to $5,000 and the higher priced models have more features incorporated. Customers with medical problems get better deals on their adjustable beds if they had a physician’s prescription.

Most of the adjustable beds had a breakdown rate of 15- 20% and made these beds unusable until repaired. Hence the warranty factor is very important.

More than 25% of the customers reviewed reported having benefited after using adjustable beds. They reported better circulation, reduced problems from insomnia, arthritis, breathing problems, cramps, asthma, and various other health benefits.

Customers also reported 25% or more satisfaction for the convenience level of the adjustable beds.

Couples were especially happy with the split designed queen sized and king sized beds as it allowed different adjustments for each of the partners.

Customers also reported a higher level of noise in adjustable beds with AC motors. Those with DC motors were comparatively quieter. Also mattresses with massage functions had a higher noise level.

Most customers reported that the adjustable beds required little or no assembly and also very little maintenance.

Customer dissatisfaction was higher for the warranty issues also as the warranty conditions were different for different models and customers were not completely aware of all the terms and conditions.

Return policies are expensive for adjustable beds and the costs could include transportation or restocking fees which could work out to be higher.

Mattresses for Adjustable beds

Customers need to look for mattresses which are compatible for adjustable beds. Most of the popular mattresses like the memory foam, latex, inner spring mattresses with pockets, and air mattresses were found to be compatible with adjustable beds. Traditional Innerspring mattresses do not work that well with adjustable beds. Air mattresses are mostly compatible with adjustable beds.Customers preferred mattresses with a thickness of 12” or less as thicker mattresses were less flexible. Memory foam mattresses worked better on adjustable beds. Companies like Saatva have introduced the Loom & Leaf memory foam mattress which is more compatible with adjustable bed frames. Their traditional mattresses do not work with adjustable beds.

One major factor for dissatisfaction is the weight of the mattress which makes them difficult to move and handle. Higher priced mattresses were costlier than the cheaper models.

Organic Mattresses – Asheville

Organic Mattress

Why Organic Mattresses?

Organic Mattress ise the most preferred and healthy mattresses. We spend one-third of our life sleeping! Most of the ordinary mattresses are made from synthetic materials like petroleum based polyester, nylon or polyurethane foam. Many of these mattresses emit volatile organic compounds (VOC) when they are new. These mattresses then go through the flame-retardant process which again uses chemicals like boric acids, phosphates or silicon. The mattress covers too are flame-resistant, again using various chemicals. All these chemicals can cause various allergic reactions including skin allergies to the users. Hence the need for organic mattresses. A wide range of the best and popular organic mattresses are available at Asheville, in NC, USA.


What are organic mattresses made from?

An Organic mattress is mainly made from three popular natural products.

  • Wool: Wool labeled as ‘Pure Grow Wool’ is taken from organically raised sheep. All natural and untreated wool that are available are resistant to fire and also dust and mite. These make for great organic mattresses.
  • Organic cotton makes for good organic mattresses. But the catch with organic cotton is that it is not fire resistant and hence does not comply with the consumer product safety commission. Hence in mattresses which use organic cotton, the cotton has to be wrapped in wool for it to pass the safety tests.
  • Natural latex is one of the most popular natural products used in the manufacture of organic mattresses. Derived from the bark of rubber trees, the latex goes through various treatment processes before use to remove the allergy causing proteins present in them. Natural latex may be of natural Dunlop latex or natural Talalay latex.

Organic mattresses do not contain any of the harmful and toxic chemicals and hence should be the logical choice for all people who love natural products.

A word of caution

Customers are however advised against buying mattresses which may be termed “eco”. Some products like ‘Plant derived’ or ‘soybean’ foam are not made from soy foam but contain a very high percentage of chemicals or petrochemical products. Similarly, “bamboo fabrics” are not made from bamboos at all. These products are not natural and customers are advised to check the labels thoroughly before falling for ‘eco’ labels. Also check for Certifications.

Top FIVE Luxury Foam Mattress

Memory foam is the most preferred choice when it comes to luxury and there is no qualm regarding that. It is unmistakably seen in customer survey reports and purchasing trends that memory foam mattress are the best choice when it comes to mattresses.

Luxury Foam Mattress

Nowadays you don’t get that old 1960s version memory foam. But a revamped version that has overcome the flaws of its previous edition. Memory foam has become one of the best choices among customers. Due to its superior qualities, like varying firmness levels, springing back action and contouring to the body shape. To cover up the heat retention, memory foam is now created in hybrid varieties like gel infused and other types which evenly disband out the heat.


Memory Foam Mattress

I used to sleep on a memory foam mattress 10 years back and gradually I turned down the foam for other varieties that had swept the markets. But to be frank I never got that memory foam feel in any other type of mattress. Back then I changed using memory foam mattress due to its overheating and off gassing issues. Apart from those two reasons I never had any issues sleeping on a memory foam mattress. But recently when I visited a friend of mine I used her guest room which had a plush memory foam mattress.

It was like I had a feel like sleeping on my old mattress which I used way long before. But to my utter surprise there was not heating problem or odor issues. I never felt anything wrong with the memory foam and that is when I came to know that there are different stuffs like hybrids and different technologies that have taken the flaws off the memory foam.

Sleep innovations offers hybrid varieties of luxury foam mattresses depending upon customer preferences.

Tempur-Pedic

Tempur-pedic is again a very well known brand and they have wide range of memory foam mattresses. The only problem is that all their mattresses are a bit expensive and the reason being their quality and comfort levels. They have a luxurious look and are excellent when it comes to medical conditions like back pain and muscle strains. Many people choose this brand especially when they have body aches and suffer from various medical conditions. They perform well in terms of motion isolation and are pretty much durable.

Types Of Tempur-pedic

Tempur-pedic offers 4 types of mattress ranges in different sizes and comfort levels. The four types are TEMPUR-Breeze®, TEMPUR-Contour™, TEMPUR-Cloud® and TEMPUR-Flex®.

Dynasty Mattress

Dynasty mattress is another mattress giant and their mattresses sell like anything at the Amazon portal. They offer quality and economical luxury foam mattresses to their customers. One of their best selling products is the new cool breeze 12 inch memory foam mattress. I thought rather than talking about the whole mattress ranges it is better to speak about their benchmark mattress which is highly liked by customers.

Dynasty mattress new cool breeze has received lots of positive customer reviews which are evident at almost all mattress shopping sites. This mattress is a multi layered mattress in which 3 inches are taken by gel foam, 4 inches by cool airflow foam and the last 5 inches by high density foam which acts as the supportive base. All these layers are fused in such a fashion that they offer total comfort, support and ventilation. The best part is that dynasty mattress offers 120 days of guarantee period putting the customer on the safer side.

If you are fed up trying different mattresses which does not support your body or produces more heat while at sleep then you can try this luxury mattress. This mattress belongs to a medium-firm option and it is more suitable for people with above average body weight. If you are looking for a plush mattress then you can try other models. I choose to ink about this mattress here because I saw that this is one of the fastest moving mattresses from this brand and customers really recommend the same to others. I guess this is boldly a luxury foam mattress which is great in terms of quality and comfort.

Lucid – Luxury Foam Mattress

Lucid is the last brand in this list, and they sell pretty cool luxury foam mattress across the US. Their mattresses conform to the weight and body structure supporting each inch of the curves. Lucid have different models of memory foam mattresses. All of them distribute weight evenly and provide relief from pressure points. They perform well in terms of motion isolation and transfer. Lucids memory foam mattresses have better air circulation than other memory foam mattresses. The high density base foam in the luxury foam mattresses offers support from the base level. Overall their mattresses stand against wear and tear and are great picks for the price that is being paid. If you are looking for an uninterrupted sleep with proper spinal alignment then you can try mattresses from this brand.

Again I have picked a famous model from this brand which is actually a hybrid mattress which makes use of both memory foam and latex foam.

16″ Natural Latex Memory Foam Mattress

What Is An Adjustable Bed?

An adjustable bed is a typically constructed lying surface or a bed that can be adjusted to diverse positions. You might have commonly seen these kinds in hospitals where the patient can lie down and sit in a slanting position by adjusting the bed. Now don’t think it is made only for the sake of hospitals as there are different kinds of adjustable beds manufactured which serve as a purpose of luxury and comfort. In the past adjustable beds used to work only with manual help but now things have changed. You get all the features and comforts with the help of a piece of remote. Most of the luxury end adjustable beds come with a motorized system which makes tilting and handling the bed a cakewalk.

With an adjustable bed you can do the following

  • Adjust the height of the bed
  • Tilt the bed to raise the upper body
  • To raise the lower body or into reverse Trendelenburg position.
  • Program comfortable positions
  • Put an end to snoring problems by lifting the head side.

“Adjustable Air Bed” That Makes You To Float While Sleeping

If there is something that offers a feeling like you have reached the mystical world of Pandora then you must be sleeping on an adjustable air bed. It offers comfort and nothing beyond that but you have to look into the bed carefully in terms of quality.

Switch on your television then you are sure to watch commercials that display air bed campaigns with a kinky model and a macho guy. I really get pissed off the way they market their airbeds and a good number of the consumers get into the gimmicks and end up buying the wrong ones.

How To Purchase An Adjustable Airbed And What To Look For?

There is no matter of argument that air beds offer high end comfort. But you have to be sure about their worthiness for the price being spent.

A good airbed should have a minimal design without complicated systems. Look for products not from the viewable side but carefully go across every nook and corner. You don’t want to regret later buying one. There are many air bed types that are quickly inflatable and some come with remote control systems. But you have look for the material that is being used to make the bed. A single small vent is more than enough to pour water on your money invested. So make sure to read a lot of reviews and customer opinions before buying one.

Secondly don’t go for high priced air beds as they are not worth it. Paying huge price and buying an air bed is like fishing in the muddy water. You may get the fish if you are lucky or return empty-handed. Likewise there is no guarantee that the air bed may last long and deliver the expected service for the money that is being paid.

Warranty

Guarantee and warranty is another aspect that you need to check on. If your manufacturer offers you a generous warranty and guarantee periods then you can opt for buying those kinds. Airbeds are subjected to wear and tear when compared to other mattresses and bed types. Especially if you have naughty little kids who are always in the sway to tweak the shit out of everything. Make sure that “no more monkeys jumping on the air bed” to keep it safe.
If you are going to share the air bed with someone then probably buy one of larger sizes like queen or king. These larger sizes usually come with separate sides and air pressure of either side can be adjusted separately. So if you want a firm side and your partner wants a soft side it won’t matter anymore as there are provisions made for the same.

Comparison

Also if you are memory foam lover or have an inclination towards latex or towards any other comfort oozing materials then you can try the hybrid air beds. Nowadays air beds accommodate a top layer which can be made of materials like foam, bamboo fibers, natural latex and feathers. The extra comfort layers are built directly above the air chamber to provide the ultimate comfort. Some also come with a built in pillow top just giving the look of a complete mattress to an airbed. If you want to spend on an air bed or an air mattress then you can try the most sought product from Serta.

The “Serta raised air mattress with never flat pump” comes with two pumps which automatically inflates and maintains the air pressure.

The best thing I like about this mattress is that it comes with a puncture resistant material and coil circular system that gives an even sleeping surface. It is best for its sturdiness and support that it has to offer. The other benefits are you can take in along wherever you want to travel as it comes with a peppy bag. It also has a full grip base that stay puts the bed at a position without moving. Overall this is one of the best airbeds that you can invest on for comfort. It is worth for the price that is being paid and you get a cozy feeling while sleeping over it. For more details about this bed you can visit this page.

  • Looks what’s beneath the air bed and ask questions about the adjustable base. Check whether the motors are UL listed and rated. Nowadays adjustable beds come with various features like integrated apps for phones. Also ask whether the components come with warranty and how the whole deal works. Simply don’t buy something and bring home.

If you are planning to buy an adjustable bed from sleep number then you can try the basic model as it is worth the price and offers all the comforts.

Customers love buying from this brand because they offer products in way low prices when compared to other brands. If you are person who wants a high class techy mattress then don’t look around for a sleep number as it offers only minimal features.

Latex Mattress

Latex mattresses are airy, natural, and good for the lower back health. Latex mattresses are very good for feel and health but are not seen as popular as other foam mattresses. The too soft core of latex may not go well with many and the fact that some people are actually allergic to latex makes things worse. Here we will look at 4 brands of Top Latex Mattresses


If you are not allergic to latex, it is the best material for the mattress. The natural ability to resist the microbes and other allergens makes latex dear for those who suffer from allergies. The dust mites are also not able to make their home in latex mattresses.

The anatomy reveals that the top layer of Casper mattress is 1.5” thick latex foam followed by a memory foam layer of the same thickness. The bottom layer is the support layer made of 7 inches thick high density foam.

The mattress has a medium firm feel to it making it acceptable for the mid range firmness lovers. It could also be felt as soft or on the harder side at times. The heavier person might sink too much than others and in that case they come in contact with the base layer too fast. This gives the mattress a firm feel no matter what the top layers are.

Another model from this brand is a customizable mattress. This particular one has got three layers of latex foam inside it. Each layer is color coded. The color codes indicate that the blue stands for soft, white for medium, and red for firm. All these layers are separate. The person can rearrange these layers in any combination it needs to attain the desired comfort level. The respective layers being at the top gives the same firmness they seek. This latex mattress is otherwise known as 12 in 1 mattress as there are 12 different combinations one could try.

The customizable mattress is easy to carry through narrow spaces. Another advantage of this mattress is that it is double sided and can be flipped as desired.

Sleep EZ USA Roma Latex Mattress

The Sleep EZ USA is a company that offers both natural latex mattresses as well as the organic latex mattresses. There are different ranges of mattresses that uses only latex and also those with poly foam quilted to the top for extra comfort. Basically the core of the mattress is completely made from latex.

The Roma latex mattress is double sided mattress with the quilted covering on both sides. The 6 inch latex core is covered on both sides by quilted top that has poly foam attached to it. If the covering material uses cotton or wool, the product changes and this helps people to choose their preferred comfort.

The fire barrier here is the natural rayon and there are no chemicals additives. The latex used here is 100% natural Dunlop latex. The disadvantage of this mattress is that heavier people does not feel comfortable on this as it does not support the weight well enough.

The bottom line

Latex mattresses, especially that made of only latex does not produce any unpleasant odor. The mattresses that use latex in combination with other foam types do not have this distinction but there, the latex acts as a nullifier of heat from the mattress at night. The cooling, breathable latex allows the air to pass through easily and dissipate the heat at the earliest. Unless you are allergic to latex, any mattress with latex as an added layer would be a healthy option.
