Thank you for this informative site! I am midway through reading your guides and am finding them very helpful. I have learned that I am highly sensitive to memory foam, I purchased a costco Novoform mattress after sleeping on one in a vacation rental and really liking it. But with my purchase, although the feel of it is quite nice, even after a month of off gassing, I find sleeping on it results in nausea and headache. So it will be returned, and I am embarking on finding a more suitable choice. I am replacing a worn innerspring pillow top, which has been a very good choice for me. Now that I have decided memory foam is not for me, I am interested in exploring latex. I've never tried latex before and have two questions so I can decide between a latex core vs another innerspring.
1) Can you recommend stores near Oviedo, FL where I could try out the feel of latex?
2) Do people like me who are sensitive to memory foam off gassing typically also experience issues with latex?

And lastly, what stores to you recommend making a purchase from in my area?

Thanks,

Angela

Hi awoods,

Welcome ... and I'm glad you found us :)

I'm sorry to hear about your experiences with the Novoform. I had a similar experience with one of their toppers (see post #2 here ) although other types of memory foam haven't affected me the same way.

1) Can you recommend stores near Oviedo, FL where I could try out the feel of latex?


The better options and possibilities I'm aware of in and around the Orlando area (including Oviedo) are listed in post #2 here .

2) Do people like me who are sensitive to memory foam off gassing typically also experience issues with latex?


No ... out of the three types of foam that you will find in most mattresses (polyfoam, memory foam, latex foam), latex is the least likely to cause any sensitivity issues and all the latex you are likely to encounter will have been tested for harmful substances and VOC's either by Oeko-Tex or by Eco-Institut .

And lastly, what stores to you recommend making a purchase from in my area?


While I can't feel what you feel or see you on a mattress and there are too many unknowns, variables, and personal preferences involved for anyone to make specific suggestions for someone else (see mattress firmness/comfort levels in post #2 here ) ... Fox mattress is one of the members of this site which means that I think highly of them and I believe they compete well with the best in the country in terms of their quality, value, service, and transparency ... and I would at least talk with them on the phone and if you are comfortable with the drive and your conversation I would make sure you include them in your research and pay them a visit.

Thank you very much for your reply. It is great to hear that latex does not have the same sensitivity issues I experienced with the memory foam. And thank you for sharing your experience with Novoform, it definitely helps to know that I'm not the only one to have such a reaction.

Thank you for the links to the specific locations in my area. I will be doing a bit more reading up on how to properly shop for a mattress, then heading out to visit some of the ones you have recommended. Fox mattress's web site does look particularly appealing, the videos they included there were informative and friendly.

Thanks,

Angela

+ 1 on Fox Mattress in Ormond Beach. I wrote here about my trip to Ormond and their Latex offerings.

Also The Original Mattress Factory has a location in Winter Park at 1785 State Road 436. We were considering them in our shopping process. They have some decent looking beds at decent prices. Their Serenity Line has a Latex offering.

Thanks mrm1. Your description of Fox's latex offerings was useful to read. What did you end up purchasing?

MrM1, thanks for taking the time to post all of those pictures! Very interesting! Today I went to the Original Mattress Factory and tried their latex with polyfoam reversible mattress. I liked it quite a bit, enjoyed the springy feeling of the latex. Perhaps a touch firmer than I might want, but as my first experience with latex, seems pretty promising. How would you say that the feel of your all latex mattress is compared to the Original Matress Factory one? Softer? Firmer? I'm hoping to get out to a place that has all latex models to try out soon to compare. Did you find you experimented with flipping the layers in yours at all, or was the first configuration you tried "the one"?

Is there a way to see any of the actual mattress on the Orlando Mattress Companies web site? All I see is this: www.orlandomattresscompany.com/online-store/, which displays for me a list of fabric patterns to choose from, with the choice taking me to a page that has no further information. Is their site broken? I thought at first that the issue was that I was using a mobile device to look at it, but now that I'm at a regular computer, I see the same thing.

It's been like that for as long as I have known about them. You will need to call or visit them to find out more about their mattresses because their website is basically useless.
