Buying a Mattress in Tulsa, OK 29 Apr 2013 21:13 #11

Hi sqls,

Laying on the mattress it really doesn't feel that soft.. A bit more of a medium range compared to the others we've tested in the last week. But we'll look at it again tomorrow and I'll try to see how our alignment is (as best as I can tell).


I would trust your experience on this because they don't list the softness of the foams and my "softness" comments were more generic than specific based on the overall design rather than the specifics of the comfort layers and components which they don't list.

The two Eco Comfort mattresses you are looking at have similar materials (possibly the same) and a similar basic design to some of the Brooklyn Bedding mattresses although they don't specify the density of the base layers and Omalon polyfoam (or any polyfoam) can come in different grades or densities. The BB mattresses also use a quilting layer on top of the Talalay latex which will change the feel and surface resilience of the mattress compared to a stretch knit organic cotton cover which would let you sleep more directly on the more resilient latex itself (and some may prefer this and some may not). The mattresses at Mathis Bros also include a foundation. They also don't say the ILD (softness/firmness) of the latex which would make it a little more difficult to approximate how they compare to a particular comfort choice with BB although firmness/softness has nothing to do with the quality or value of the material and many local retailers or manufacturers don't disclose the "comfort specs" of their mattresses because personal testing is a more accurate way to determine the suitability of a mattress than ILD specs. Many of the BB bedding mattresses also allow for a comfort exchange if your initial choice isn't quite what you want. As you can see ... price has little to do with the quality of what you purchase and both of these mattresses are closer to the price range of many "all latex" mattresses that are sold by many of the online members here .

Because of the reduced risk of being able to test a mattress in person locally ... I usually use a 20% "local premium" as a guideline as being roughly equivalent value to an online purchase on a mattress to mattress basis (assuming the materials and design are very similar) although each person may use their own percentage depending on their own personal value equation , their risk tolerance, and which of the options and benefits that are part of each mattress and dealing with each retailer or manufacturer is most important to them.

Thanks for the feedback about your Tulsa experiences.
