:woohoo: So...I pulled the trigger and ordered the above mentioned bed in full-size. After watching a couple of youtube videos of people inflating their Ultimate Dream beds, I ordered the Euro. Mainly because I know I am going to guess wrong at the firmness level and need to exchange the latex core.
The base foam is taller but the same in density as the standard. I am really afraid this bed will not hold its shape. Mostly good reviews on Amazon but some are negative.
Does anyone have this bed and have any input? I don't like the $75 fee they charge for an exchange
Since the bed was an extra $300 from the standard.
I am totally nerve wracked from buying online. All Chuck can do is tell u the firmness level in his opinion. It didn't help me much at all although people rave about the help?

Hi Squeaky,

I agree that the Eurotop would be a better option for you because besides the thicker base layer you can exchange the firmness level of the latex comfort layer if your sleeping experience indicates that your original comfort choice isn't the most suitable option. There is a comparison of their Amazon latex mattresses here.

That's all anyone can do because there isn't any formula that anyone can use to know for certain what someone else will do best with but having said that they are very good at helping their customers choose the most suitable firmness level and have a great track record for doing so (sometimes I think they must have a crystal ball because they do so well with this :)). Regardless of this though, it's always nice to know that you have good options after a purchase if you need it or even if your needs and preferences or circumstances change over time so you can change your comfort level without having to replace the entire mattress.

Congratulations on your new mattress ... I think you made a great choice :)

:) Thank you Phoenix. The new bed has to be better than the sagging/collapsing bed that I am in now. Dreamfoam also has a coil pocket mattress with latex topper on Amazon! That sounds good too. So many choices. Dreamfoam's sister company also had great choices. It is nice that Dreamfoam throws in a free latex pillow for being MU member. I will post an update when I start using the new bed.

So this bed appears pretty similiar to the Bamboo bliss, but $300 less. Is the main difference between the two a more quality dense bases layer on the bamboo bliss? 2.17lb vs 1.5lb? How long would the 1.5lb base layer last for a 260lb side sleeper? All I need out of it is 3-4 yrs and I could replace since to me thats a long time and would probably want to try the latest and greatest after that time anyways. I notice the top layer is a bit different too, made of different materials and thickness on the two. Is the 3" talalay probably of the same type and quality?

The main differences between them are the Bamboo bliss has a higher density and more durable base foam, a more generous exchange policy, and a more costly cover which includes wool in the quilting (which can help with temperature regulation). The Talalay latex is the same in both mattresses.

How long would the 1.5lb base layer last for a 260lb side sleeper?


Unfortunately there is no way to put a number of years on the useful life of a mattress for a particular person because there is no way to know with any certainty when someone crosses the "fuzzy line" and begins to "tolerate" a mattress just a little more and enjoy it a little less than they did some months or a year before and when they finally conclude that the mattress isn't suitable any more and decide to replace it. It will also depend on where you are inside the range of comfort and support that is suitable for you because the useful life of a mattress is also relative to the suitability of your initial choice in terms of PPP and how much "room" you have for the materials to soften (see post #2 here ). This is one of those processes (like aging in general) that creeps up on people and most people will need to replace a mattress because of the gradual loss of comfort and/or support not because the materials have completely worn out.

What I can say though is that the Eurotop would be a less durable choice than the Bamboo Bliss at your weight because you will be compressing and stressing the layers below the latex more than others that are in a lighter weight range. I would generally suggest that you purchase the best quality mattress that you can comfortably afford because it's not just how long you sleep on it that is important but how long you sleep well on it as well.

I would have preferred a denser base, maybe next time. With the Euro..Chuck said there is a $150 deposit if u need to exchange the latex core if u messed up your firmness choice. If u send the 1st layer back...they refund u $75. Chuck said some people keep the second layer and add it to the bed. Just a latex topper is over $250. Chuck said that the metal platform frames on Amazon are ok for the Euro. I was afraid the foam would push through.
He also said a dustmite encasing plus a mattress pad will be ok too. I was concerned about ventilation/mold.
I read dustmites avoid latex but not the foam. I read they live on the edges of memory foam, but not sure about polyfoam. I really despise dustmites and offgassing. I would luv an all latex bed!!!

Hi Squeaky,

Not surprisingly ... I would agree with what Chuck told you. I would have no real concerns about ventilation or mold with a latex mattress and a wire grid platform can work well with a latex/polyfoam hybrid.

I read dustmites avoid latex but not the foam. I read they live on the edges of memory foam, but not sure about polyfoam. I really despise dustmites and offgassing. I would luv an all latex bed!!!


You can read a little more about dust mites and allergies in post #2 here .

Did you end up purchasing the Eurotop?

:cheer: Hi...Yes I did purchase the Euro. It will be here by the 16th hopefully. If I like it, I may buy another latex hybrid to replace a memory foam bed with a sink hole in it. :cheer:

Congratulations on your new mattress :)

As you know I think you made a great quality/value choice and I'm looking forward to any feedback you have the chance to share when you've received it and had the chance to sleep on it for a bit.
