I tried my too hard pure latex bliss nutrition mattress with a 2" pure latex bliss topper which supposedly has an ILD of 14. It seemed to help, but you never really know until at least a full night's sleep. $550 after sales tax seems quite ridiculous for such a thin topper that is made up of less latex than most higher ILD toppers. I've seen much better value 3" toppers, but I'm looking for 2" since 3" seemed a little too thick. Anyone have a specific recommendation in the $300ish price range?

Hi Automaton,

Looking for eastern king.


I would probably check here (a little firmer than mid teens) or here (any firmness that Latex International produces). Both are bare latex without a cover.

Latex International (inventor of the talalay process) via KTT Enterprises sells the real deal, 1" - 6" slabs of any latex ILD you want for $100/inch, queen size, the cheapest in the industry. What's nice is when you order thru the factory you can feel confident it is what it is. I've got three 3" slabs of the taladay Talatech coming. I'm building my own mattress. If you're heavy go with something better than 14 ILD, and in a 3" thickness.

Latex Bliss is a rip. The latex they use comes from Latex International FWIW.

Hi Abraxus,

Latex International (inventor of the talalay process)


Just to clarify this ... Latex International didn't invent the Talalay process and weren't the first to use it ( see here ).

Thanks everyone. I requested a quote from ktt, so hopefully they have something reasonable. I'm not that heavy and basically want to add a little light pillow top feel. PLB's 14 ILD topper seems to do without affecting the feel of the lower support layers, so I'm trying to stay mid teens ILD.

Ran across a Sleep & Invigorate topper. The 14 ILD and Oeko-Tex 100 certified description makes it sound like Latex International foam. Is that possible? Any feedback on this brand?
