Phoenix - thanks for the response!

The step up from the Seqoia is the that has the following specs:

1-inch ComfortFlex Foam (CertiPUR-US Certified)- 1.5 LB Density and 15 ILD
1-inch QuiltFlex Foam (CertiPUR-US Certified)- 1.5 LB Density and 32 ILD
2-Inch Natural Latex (Eco-Institut Certified)- 4.7 LB Density
2-Inch Natural Latex (Eco-Institut Certified)- 5.6 LB Density
2-Inch Gel Memory Foam (CertiPUR-US Certified)- 3 LB Density and 10 ILD
6-Inch Therapeutic Support Base (CertiPUR-US Certified)- 1.8 LB Density and 30 ILD

I know the memory foam is lower still, but would the extra latex layers help make up for it? Also, how much damage would be done to the mattress while we lose weight (say over the course of a year)? Do you think a dip would develop in that time?

This is the Cambria. The latex is a good quality and durable material. The biggest concern would be for the 2” of 1.5 lb polyfoam in the quilt, which at 2” is a little more than I would normally recommend at that density, but the second layer being at 32 ILD does help in that respect. The 3 lb memory foam is also lower than I would normally recommend, but being deeper within the mattress it’s not as great of a concern as if it would be above the latex layers. And the polyfoam core, at 1.8 lb and 30 ILD, is a bit lower than I would nor ally recommend for a higher BMI.

I don’t know that you would be “damaging” the mattress, but all foams go through stresses, and the higher the mass placed upon those foams, especially the uppermost layers, the higher the mechanical stress. There is more about the varied factors involved in mattress durability in post #2 here .

Thanks Phoenix!

I think we're leaning towards the Dreamfoam Aloe Alexis that seems to have higher density foam that should support our bodies better!

Hi Astraeus.

Ultimate Dreams Aloe Alexis is a good quality/value choice mattress with no weak links for a higher BMI couple that is slowly going toward an average BMI :) . The two 3” comfort layers of blended Talalay Latex layers are good quality and durable and exchangeable. Once you decide to pull the trigger after checkout a Dreamfoam representative will call you back to guide you and make sure that customization your mattress is a perfect “match” and the level of firmness is appropriate for your particular needs, style and preferences. 7” at 2.17 HD PolyFoam Core is a good quality and durable material.

As you probably are aware, you are considering a product from a one of our trusted members here who using high quality and durable materials, which means that I think very highly of them and that I believe that they compete well with the best in the industry. They are extremely knowledgeable about latex and different configurations, and I would not hesitate to recommend them for your consideration.

I'm looking forward to learn about your final decision and respond to any other questions you may have.
