Thanks Phoenix,

I know my changes seem random, but I needed as much cushioning with whatever materials I have to keep me from hitting the N3 so hard.

I have been looking at the specs of some of the mattress configurations that lighter women have liked. Since I do not have a store nearby that carries PLB models, I can't try them out first hand. But, it seems that many women like the beautiful for side sleeping comfort. I can add the top layer that the Beautiful uses to my layers and it seems that it would be very close unless there is a special quilted cover or something else on top. As I understand it, this mattress is:

3" active fusion N. Tal. 21 ild
3" Nat. tal. 24 ild (N3 I suppose)
6" 36 ild Nat. Tal 36 ild (N5 I suppose)

My questions:

A. Is there a noticeable difference in feel between a 3" - 19 ild blended talalay layer and the 3" - 21 ild active fusion Nat. Talalay ?
I'm assuming that these two materials are pretty close. I am concerned that the 3" 19 ild will be too soft for my husband who
is 150 lbs., (sleeps all different ways).

B. Are these 4 the same?

1. Active fusion natural talalay 21 ild
2. talalay GL fast response 21 ild
3. Celsion 21 ild
4. Rejuvenite 21 ild

C. What is the construction of the covers for the PLB mattresses?

Thanks,

Diane

Hi Diane37,

A. Is there a noticeable difference in feel between a 3" - 19 ild blended talalay layer and the 3" - 21 ild active fusion Nat. Talalay ?


There may be a slight difference in subjective "feel" but they will be very close in terms of their softness and pressure relief. a 2 ILD difference is normally below what people can detect and is inside the range of the firmness variations of a particular layer (which can vary by about =/- 2 ILD across the surface with blended Talalay).


B. Are these 4 the same?

1. Active fusion natural talalay 21 ild
2. talalay GL fast response 21 ild
3. Celsion 21 ild
4. Rejuvenite 21 ild


Active Fusion fast response is what Pure Latex Bliss (a mattress manufacturer owned by Latex International) calls their Talalay GL fast response (which is the name used by Latex International) and Celsion is the old name for the same material. Rejuvenite is a trade name for toppers and pillows made by Latex International and doesn't describe the material inside the topper but it's probably the same given the ILD and in that case they would all be the same yes.

C. What is the construction of the covers for the PLB mattresses?


You can see the details here . It's an unquilted stretch cover.
