If you don’t remember I wrote about the whole buying expedience and transition to natural bedding in a series of posts last October. To recap here are the reasons I was dead set on getting a latex mattress.
- Latex is said to be extreamly comfortable and that is #1 in my mind.
- I was looking for something all natural, made without chemicals, that would not off gas in my bedroom. We spend so much of our lives sleeping I know it’s not good to breathe in that stuff.
- Latex supposed to last a loooooong time. Something like 20+ years when you rotate it properly/regularly.
On the first point- In my last two posts reviewing the mattress I mentioned how comfortable it is. Well I am happy to report I still think this mattress is the bee’s knees. Whenever we travel we are always looking forward to our own bed when we get home. It is so much more supportive than any mattress I’ve ever slept on! Latex is not like memory foam at all, it’s a bit bouncy and depending on how firm of a mattress you get it, pushes back on you just enough to support you in just about any position you sleep. I personally switch between side sleeping and stomach sleeping both of which were fairly painful on my previous mattress and I feel great when I wake up every morning.
One thing I especially like is how the mattress is totally uniform in firmness across the whole bed. There are no low spots, no spots where you can tell a coil is below you or anything like that. I can literally sleep anywhere on the bed and feel the same!
Just an FYI– not all latex mattress are like this. I actually was able to feel a few sections of other types of latex mattresses that are manufactured in different ways and the do have soft spots. This is due to the unique way the latex cores are made for Bedrooms and More. Latex is baked in molds. Usually the molds lay flat just like a a cake pan while the latex solidifies. However, the mold can’t be filled perfectly so the firmness of the mattress varies using this method. Bedrooms and More flips the mold up on its side so the latex can be filled right to the top and keep the same amount of surface tension across the entire bed. This is a more complete explanation of how rubber becomes a mattress from the experts!
Secondly- the off gassing. In the 6 months of owning the mattress and a latex pillow, I’ve never once noticed a smell, had a headache or anything of the sort. My husband has asthma and also had zero complaints! Very happy on this accord, air quality is really important in our house!
Over all I am still 100% satisfied with my mattress. I gave my mom a call who bought a mattress at Bedrooms and More about 5 months before I did and this is what she had to say
“I previously had a unflippable mattress, which I was sold without knowing I couldn’t flip it! Right away it had a crevice in the middle and was NOT comfortable. Today, almost a year from getting a latex mattress from Bedrooms and More, it feels the same as it did when I first bought. My bed is heaven and I want to spend ALL my time in it! I loved Bedrooms and More, the staff was incredibly knowledgeable and are so nice. Other stores were like working with a used car salesman, I honestly enjoyed the process of buying a mattress which I didn’t know was possible”
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
All of this to say- I still 100% endorse Bedrooms and More. It’s the most natural comfortable bed available!
