LOL - i know a perfect T-Shirt for you !


Your post is bordering on the edge (and has probably crossed it) of a personal attack and I have to warn you that these types of posts won't be tolerated here. There is no humor, value, or relevance in posting these types of links.

I'll leave it up just to show its ignorance (now removed in the quote as well as the original post) but if you go further in this direction and continue to break the rules of this forum then you will be banned.

Clear?

i'm sorry you took it the wrong way Phoenix - i wasn't attacking you - maybe poking a little fun - but i certainly didn't want to offend you. if you were offended i apologize.

you can delete it if you want - i thought you would like it.

Not close to being funny ON ANY LEVEL! Were you trying to imply that having a nuanced view of wool vs. cotton was equivalent to looking for the good and bad in Hitler? I don't get your sense of humor. As for wool vs. cotton, check my post on the downside of non-organic cotton. I appreciate your letting us know the downside of some types of treated wool and will read the whole article you linked to. Lew

Hi g1981c,

Not close to being funny ON ANY LEVEL!


I would completely agree with this.

It's not a matter of "being offended" (I have learned over time not to personalize these things) ... but a matter of the content of your link "being offensive" (not just to me) and not relevant to the discussion. I would hope that members here would use better judgement than to post these types of links ... under the guise of humor or anything else.

It's also not a matter of what I want. I am more interested in seeing what you choose to do.

You aren't able to delete a post once a reply has been posted but you are able to edit it and remove the offensive links out of it. Should you choose to do so I will do the same with my quote.

received my brooklyn bedding talalay topper - surprised and disappointed 16 Apr 2013 21:16 #7

first of all brooklyn bedding came through with bargain basement price and lightning fast shipping - kudos for that

now the weird stuff ...

i ordered a 2" queen latex topper which was $229 but i said i don't want the cover so they took $30 off for the cover and it cost me only $200. today i unpack the thing - and it has the cover on - oh well, i didn't pay for it.

the cover has "bamboo" written all over it, and also it says bamboo in the description on brooklyn bedding page - however the label on the cover says 50% cotton 50% polyester ... LOL ! now i didn't pay anything for the cover, so i don't care, i couldn't get the latex itself for less than $200 anywhere - but somebody who is paying for a bamboo cover will be disappointed to find out it is polyester ! and i know it's not just me, because in Amazon reviews i saw the same thing happened to others ( who did not get any discounts ).

also annoying is the fact that the cover is not zippered ! there is no way to access the latex or to wash the cover ! now that is just dumb beyond belief ! once again - i don't care - i never wanted the cover to begin with, but some people will be very disappointed.

and finally why *I* am disappointed is because i ordered a 19 ILD topper, and it feels exactly like the 14 ILD topper from Pure Latex Bliss that i tried - way too soft - and it hasn't even been broken in yet ! now the good news is that PLB topper costs upwards of $500 and this feels identical for $200 but unfortunately that doesn't help me ! i wanted firmer latex !

also the thing is jiggly as hell ! i can roll around on it as if i was on wheels ( i have it laying on a spring mattress right now ).

to make matters worse i don't really know what it will feel like in the mattress i am building - the way it feels on top of a hard spring mattress doesn't really tell me all that much.

i'll probably have to wait until i get my 24 ILD Talalay GL Slow so i can stack them, and then decide what to do ...

if only Mattresses.net were as fast to ship as Brooklyn Bedding is ... they still haven't shipped my latex even though i ordered it half a week before i ordered from Brooklyn Bedding

the problem is i can't exchange it for the next one up, which is 24 ILD because i already have 24 ILD on order from Mattresses.net - and given the choice between this jiggly stuff and slow recovery i have to go with slow recovery ...

ARRRGH !

anyway my initial panic is wearing off - and i think all is not so bad.

worst case scenario i will exchange it for a firmer one and give it to my mother to put over her spring bed that i'm using as my test platform right now. it improved the spring mattress considerably even in this ILD which is clearly wrong for that particular mattress.

anyway we'll see ...

people your size can benefit from thicker than usual mattresses. in fact a 10" mattress may bee too thin for you IMO. as a matter of fact i am 230 lbs and i'm not really considering 10" for myself as i think it is too thin. according to the information i have seen for people your size 12" mattress is the minimum.
