My order for two Twin XL mattresses arrived today in four heavy boxes from Foam Sweet Foam! Initially I was worried that I might not be able to assemble them by myself since the boxes were rather heavy, but since I am not one to give up I started the unpacking. Each box was labeled; 1, 2, 3 or 4, so I knew what to open first. The first box contained the mattress covers, the really nice soft and durable feeling mattress covers. The assembly directions were at the bottom of the box and were an easy read.

My mattress stats are:

Bed 1:
Top Layer-3" Talalay Med 28 ILD
2nd Layer-3" Dunlop Firm 31 ILD
3rd Layer - 3" Dunlop X-Firm 36 ILD
4th Layer - 3" Dunlop X-Firm 36 ILD

Bed 2:
Top Layer-3" Talalay Med 28 ILD
2nd Layer-3" Dunlop Firm 31 ILD
3rd Layer - 3" Dunlop Firm 31 ILD
4th Layer - 3" Dunlop X-Firm 36 ILD

I started assembling the first mattress and found that handling each piece of latex was easy and aligning them on top of each other using the "wave" motion was really easy. I think most of my time was spent opening the boxes and stepping around the dogs who were very curious as to what was going on. There were no obnoxious fumes and the only smell was a slight rubber smell with my top layer of Talalay.

When I finished assembling the first mattress I laid down, for quite a while, in pure bliss. So comfortable. But, since this was my husband's mattress I did get back up and put mine together.

We are using the St. Domier mattress protectors and they feel great. I spent about a half hour just enjoying them with my Reverie 7 adjustable foundation in the G-force position and the full-body massager on. I then called my husband, who was on his way home from work, from my little piece of heaven.

First impressions are great for both of us. Tomorrow morning I hope that we will have the same opinion or even a better one. I was concerned that the med Talalay might be too soft, but it is perfect. I feel well-supported, but in a soft way. The resemblance I have read some make of latex feeling like you are laying on a cloud now made complete sense to me. Soft but supportive.

A little history: We are getting rid of a 13 year old Stearns and Foster coil with pillow top mattress. It probably should have been replaced 3-5 years ago. This is our first time with a latex mattress. I almost bought a Temperpedic a few months ago, but then changed my mind and started doing a lot of research. I honestly didn't think there would be a big difference between latex and memory foam so I didn't take the time to drive quite a ways to test a latex mattress, so I placed an order for memory foam beds with Novosbed. A week before they were to be delivered I drove by a mattress store that I knew carried latex. I decided to stop in and go ahead and test one. They only had one latex mattress, but I could feel how different latex was to memory foam. I honestly don't know the specs of what I laid down on, but I knew that it felt better to me than memory foam. I cancelled my order with Novosbed and started looking at the different latex manufacturers. I knew I wanted to order out of state to avoid sales tax and since I live in Florida, that was real easy to do.

I chose Foam Sweet Foam because I liked their product offering, prices and their website was easy for me to navigate. I placed the order on a Sunday and after Phoenix recommended me to call them to make sure my online order was appropriate for us I called and spoke with Heidi on Monday.

Heidi has been great to deal with. She is very nice and has a very enthusiastic and welcoming voice. The mattress did have a slight delivery delay due to a large number of sales at the same time, but it only came in two days later than the website estimates.

I will provide period updates as we sleep night after night in heavenly bliss. :)

Hi Geekymom1,

Thanks for taking the time to share your experiences with Foam Sweet Foam and for your comments about the assembly and initial feedback on the mattress ... I appreciate it :)

I'm also looking forward to any additional updates you have the chance to share once you've had the chance to sleep on it for a while as well.

Our first night was wonderful. For the first time in quite a while - maybe even a few years, my husband slept soundly throughout the night and he woke up without back pain. I didn't sleep as well since I still have two small dogs who seem to be in a competition of which one can be glued to me the most during the night, but I did sleep better than I normally do. It is a level of comfort that is so perfect; it really is. :)
