NOOO! I just wrote a long post and it disappeared, don't you hate it when that happens?

Sigh, I guess long story short, I went ahead and purchased a medium-firm Luma Sleep mattress and am overall satisfied with the results, so thank you for the assistance!

Pros: high quality materials, does not sleep hot. Cons: thought it would have more edge support (although I don't roll off or anything like that), and has more "give" than I would like.

Hi chav,

Congratulations on your new Luma Sleep mattress! :cheer: Which model did you end up selecting? Whether the hybrid or all latex, you certainly chose something using good quality and durable materials.

Both the all latex and the hybrid will have “softer” edge reinforcement systems than “typical” innerspring foam encasement units when seated, but as you mentioned, sleeping close to the edge it’s still supportive and product roll-off is minimal. Part of that is the point elasticity of the latex itself.

I hope you’ll be able to report back once you’ve had a chance to sleep upon the mattress for a while longer.

And sorry about your post disappearing. :S Sometimes the site signs me out as well and the post I was working on disappears and I have to sign back in, but it’s usually there again after I sign back in. But as I learned a long time ago, I always copy what I was working on before submitting it…just in case!

I purchased the hybrid. That was partly why I was a little disappointed with the edge support, because the point of going hybrid was because I like the rigidity of innerspring. But like I said earlier, it wasn't so bad that it was a dealbreaker. I frequently sleep on the floor and have little trouble adjusting to Japanese mattresses, so my standards for "firm" I think is much higher than the average American. :-)

I've had it since Jan/Feb this year and am still pretty happy.

Hi chav,

Thanks for that update. Yes, many people comment that the edge on perimeter spring edge reinforcement systems, such as the Quantum Edge, doesn’t feel quite as hard as they assumed it might. These systems in general won’t feel as hard for a seating surface as a typical foam encased edge system, but they are quite good at allowing you to sleep up to the edge, and generally there is less of a differentiation in the transition from the sleeping surface to the edge.

I’m glad that you’re still happy with your new mattress!
