This latex mattress is crafted to provide you with luxurious support and excellent body contouring. This is my top pick because it helped in easing my chronic back pain throughout the night.

The mattress is made of natural latex that accords a perfect combination of support and relaxation. It can move with your body every time you roll around while supporting your spine. 

This mattress is suitable for back sleepers since it has excellent independent movement and can easily relieve pressure. This is suitable for front sleepers as well as side sleepers like me.

It has a good roll together feature, where you will not be disturbed if your partner moves around. However, I felt that this feature could be more efficient since it slightly affected contouring.

The surface of the mattress is made of hypoallergic materials. It can be beneficial if you suffer from allergies. The finish is made of high-quality components to provide you with a smart cover.

It can combat the moisture and heat that the body produces during sleep. This gave me a cool and comfy sleeping environment all night.

The mattress is easy to maintain since it is a no-turn mattress that does not require you to turn over or flip. However, you should rotate it regularly from head to toe. It also comes with an 8-year warranty with repair or replacement options.

If you are a side sleeper like I am, this can be one of the most comfortable latex mattresses available. In addition to the excellent latex, this mattress has 2000 individual pocket springs. The combination provides you with splendid support for your shoulders, hips, and limbs.

The pocket springs are zoned in a way that is the most optimal to react to the shape and movements of your body. The springs are arranged to support the hips and lower back. Also, it has excellent cushioning that supported my entire body.

Its dense structure with 2.5 cm of latex layers provided an ultimate level of comfort. This mattress has a medium-firm feel that is necessary for back and side sleepers. Also, the latex layers can deter moulds and dust mites. 

The cover is made of superior quality materials and is embroidered to provide an attractive appeal. It is also hand-tufted to provide durability and reliability. The pillow top adds an extra layer of comfort. Rest assured, you can have a heavenly sleeping experience!

All the components involved in this mattress are hypoallergenic. If you are worried about allergies, you do not have to be with these mattresses. The materials are also highly responsive and adaptive to body movements.

The air vents are effective, although they could have been better. Due to this, it is not an ideal choice for hot sleepers.

Features to look for in Mattresses.

Flexibility

One of the prime checkboxes that your mattress must tick is the flexibility one. You are likely to adjust your bed to multiple positions, and your mattress needs to move with ease. Plus, this will also reflect the longevity of your mattress.

Comfort Level

What kind of a sleeper are you? Identify your sleeping habits and health conditions, if any, and choose the mattress accordingly. This piece of bedding has a prime role in ensuring your comfort, and that is what you need to check. Look for features like pressure relief, motion transfer, contouring, etc.

Type of Mattress

Another essential aspect that directly determines whether a mattress is for you or not is its type. While a latex mattress excels at providing a bouncy feel, the hybrid ones ensure pressure relief — ideal for back discomfort. The other two options include innerspring, which is relatively budget-friendly and foam — exhibiting the highest flexibility rate.

Air Circulation

Whether you are a hot sleeper or not, air circulation and temperature regulation are necessary features for your mattress. They allow you to sleep in a healthy environment while also preserving the mattress condition.

Size

TIt is one of the basic points that you must double-check. You do not want to order a mattress that does not fit your bed base, do you? Therefore, thoroughly skim through the mattress measurements and compare them with that of the bed.

Split vs. Solid

If you have a split bed base, purchasing a mattress compatible with this design is the unspoken wiser decision. It will allow you and your partner to change position and firmness level independently.

Frequently Asked Questions

Among the numerous things latex mattresses stand out for, the various questions and confusion about latex mattresses are also included. That is why I am answering some of the most frequently asked questions to clear the common doubts.

Latex mattresses and memory foam mattresses are similar since they are both layered beds designed to provide body contouring.

 

Memory foam mattresses have open-celled structures that can improve breathability. Also, their effects can be enhanced using cooling gels. Latex mattresses are made of any of the three different types of latex: synthetic latex, natural latex, or blended latex. 

 

Memory foam is extraordinary at moulding to body shapes and relieving pressure points. They have excellent motion isolation, which can help restless sleepers who sleep with their partners. Generally, memory foam mattresses are inexpensive when compared to latex mattresses.

 

However, the memory foam mattresses are not good at dispersing heat, and they lack edge support. Also, they are less responsive than latex mattresses.

 

On the other hand, latex mattresses are bouncier than memory foam mattresses. Latex is a naturally cooling material that enables the mattresses to provide more breathability.

 

Hence, latex mattresses are better for hot sleepers and people who prefer a bouncier mattress. To answer the question of which one is better, I’d say it totally depends on individual requirements.

Latex has numerous advantages when used in a mattress. Let me explain to you with some pointers.

  • Latex material can provide a high level of comfort for sleepers. 
  • It can provide pain relief as it is good at contouring your body shape. 
  • They are hypoallergenic since latex naturally contains anti-microbial properties. It can repel harmful microorganisms, such as fungi and bacteria, that can collect on the mattress.
  • Latex has a high level of breathability; hence, it can provide coolness throughout the time you sleep on it.
  • Using latex materials can make the mattress more durable.
  • Latex is one of the most eco-friendly materials that can be used in mattresses.

It is perfectly safe for people to use a latex mattress. However, some people do show allergic reactions when they are exposed to latex.

 

As long as you are not specifically allergic to latex, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. In that case, latex is not in any way harmful to your skin.

 

Natural latex is entirely safe and does not contain any synthetic chemicals. However, synthetic latex is made of petroleum-based components. Nonetheless, it is used in the mattresses after passing through rigorous testing for safety.

 

Your allergies to latex may differ according to the different compositions of latex. In some cases, if you are allergic to latex gloves, you may not be allergic to latex mattresses.

 

If you have any latex allergy, it is better to contact your physician to understand the effects of the mattress on you. However, the latex is in the mattresses does not come in contact with your skin. It is always covered with other layers, including the top covers.

 

All of the latex mattresses mentioned above are safe to use and have been through the necessary safety testing. They can provide you with a good night’s sleep without any worries.

To answer shortly, yes, a blended latex mattress is a 100% latex mattress.

 

It is a mixture of synthetic and natural latex components. Usually, a blended latex mattress will have 60 to 70 per cent natural latex, and the rest will be synthetic latex. 

 

So, a mattress is 100% latex if it is labelled ‘Blended Latex.’ However, it is not made of a hundred per cent natural latex components.

 

I am hoping my explorations with these mattresses helped you in finding the best latex mattress. Hopefully, you will be sleeping soundly in your brand-new latex mattress in no time!
