Hi there, I stumbled upon this review after doing some research for a new mattress topper. We have a talay latex mattress with a layer of wool on the top. We bought the mattress from European Sleepworks in Berkeley,Ca. We like the mattress a lot but I need a little more softness.

A couple of months ago, we bought a gussetted, cotton mattress topper filled, with what turned out to be, clusters of fiberfill in individual squares, sewn together. First couple of nights, it provided just the right amount of loft and softness. What we noticed is that after a couple hours of sleeping, the fiber fill would separate and we would be laying in the bottom of a valley, fiber fill on both sides of us. Every morning, I have to shake the topper, and shift the filling back in place. I have rotated the topper every two weeks when I change the sheets, but doesn't help.

Most mornings, we wake up with stiff and achy backs. Without the topper, we have no complaints other than just wanting a little more lofty softness.

I love the idea of the seven comforts latex topper, but am wondering if this topper will do the same thing, because each square consists of the "little rolls", and doesn't have a solid layer of latex in each square.

FWIW, we thought about just buying a 2" latex topper from the store we bought the mattress from, but I am trying not to spend $400.00 + dollars, and the price on Amazon for the seven comforts latex topper is, for lack of a better word, lovely :cheer:

Hi GirlFriday,

The microrods of latex in the sections of the Seven Comforts are quite densely filled (it's amazingly heavy) and latex tends to be quite sticky rather than slippery so you wouldn't end up with bare spots from sleeping on it. It does displace to a degree under the pressure points but this is part of the attraction of using "shredded" latex over a solid layer (there is less risk of alignment issues). It is much more supportive, resilient, and dense than a fiberfill topper.

I've even used it as an emergency mattress on a hard floor and the person sleeping on it said it was amazingly comfortable for a 2" topper on a hard floor.

Hope this helps.

Hi, GirlFriday!

Exactly what Phoenix said. Right now I've got a flattened spot where I lay (after about 2 weeks :blush: of no fluffing) but there are no bare spots at all and it's still providing softness and plushness. It's more a degree of loft. I will say that the Seven Comforts is MUCH more densely packed than my old feather/down and my previous fiberfill toppers. It seriously weighs about 40 lbs. My husband and I are really pleased with it.

I will also say that I think the Seven Comforts (latex microrod) is sold out of the king size at this point. When I noticed there were only 20 or so left in stock at Amazon, I bought a second one. The cost for a solid latex king size topper was pretty high so I took a risk and tried this one. I'm glad I did.

Hi Coventry and Phoenix!

Thank you so much for your answers. Took your wise advice and purchased a queen size from Amazon last night. We have a full size mattress, but when we bought the mattress, I learned through trial and error to buy EVERYTHING in queen sizes (to not compress the mattress in any way). Other than having to do a little extra tucking every couple days, it works out quite nicely.

Luckily, DH and I are Amazon prime members, so the topper should be here on Wednesday. Really looking forward to not fluffing every couple hours and not waking up with achy backs. So appreciative of the Amazon reviews that led me to this forum!

Hi GirlFriday,

I'm looking forward to hearing about how it works for you and adding your feedback to ours :)

It certainly is a good value IMO.

Absolutely Phoenix! I'm hoping Christmas comes early for us. I kid you not, whenever my husband wakes up to use the restroom in the middle of the night, I will try to fluff his side of the topper as quickly as possible... so he doesn't have an achy back when he gets up for work. Crazy, huh?

Chat with you soon!

That's what I call "service" :)

If nothing else ... it will be nice that your middle of the night "fluffing" duties will be over ... and he may never really know just how dedicated you were to relieving his achy back.

Is the Seven Comforts latex topper treated with FR chemicals? Are toppers in general treated?

Also, wondering if you still like the topper.

Am considering ordering two layers of Dunlop with no cover and then using this topper as the comfort layer, and it would also provide a cover of sorts. This would save a few hundred dollars, and maybe provide better pressure relief than a 2" or 3" solid latex topper. Does this sound reasonable?

Thank you for all the great info.

Honestly, I'm not sure if it is treated with chemicals or not. I don't think so since I'm moderately bothered by chemical smells on clothes (I can't walk into a Forever 21 without getting a headache). I think this topper is either a factory 2nd or some sort of knock off of the COCOMAT brand since mine has COCOMAT all over it, almost like a watermark only woven into the fabric.

My husband and I really still like ours. It does have a latex smell that never bothered me (I liked it actually) and it needs fluffing when you change your bedding every week or two. Since it is little chunks of latex it has an uneven surface but when your laying on it you don't feel that since they compress. I like it much better than the feather bed topper that I had. It does form a 'nest' where you lay down but it shakes right out. I normally just fluff it when I change the sheets and things so this isn't a big deal for me. My husband loves it and will not sleep without it on the bed.

I don't know how it directly compares to a solid latex topper or how it compares to La'Noodle topper since I haven't owned either type. Of course, the price was much less than either of the other two options. When I purchased my two Seven Comforts King size toppers... I think they were both $129.00 each. So the price was one of the largest reasons I tried this topper.
Cozy Pure King size La'Noodle topper - $498.00
COCOMAT Magnolia (This is what I think this topper is my Seven Comforts pillow and this topper look exactly like these COCOMAT products)

I just saw the video by CozyPure comparing the Seven Comforts and the La'Noodle HERE . I don't find my topper 'hard' at all like they've described in that video but the La'noodle topper does look softer. I wouldn't think it's 300 dollars softer though. :) Also, they didn't show them pulling out the latex from either product. I've pulled out the latex in my Seven Comforts and yes, there are pieces like that in there BUT by and large there are 'noodles' that look similar to the La'Noodle topper. This is a picture I've taken of the latex from my Seven Comforts pillow: https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B005U86WZO/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_2?ie=UTF8&index=2

ETA: I can't get the image to link up correctly but you can copy and paste that URL into another browser window and check out those pictures I've taken.


Well, I hope this information helps :)

Thank you.

BTW, you can buy the topper direct from Seven Comforts for $129.95 queen (free shipping) vs. $159.95 on Amazon. Link is here:

Just thought this might be helpful to anyone else considering this topper. I like to save every penny! :)
