I called Amore and he's going to get back to me. He said that the feel is identical. :) But I pushed to find out, because I want to know. He was quite resistant, maybe because it's Friday and it was late in his work day, but I don't want to hear that "it's whatever I think I have." :)

It will be reeeally interesting if it is memory foam, because it is really cool sleeping, and really easy to move around on. Maybe the graphite can do that to memory foam by making it less mushy? I dunno. Either way, if the topper works, it works, and I guess if it is really good, I could actually consider a memory foam for the rest of the bed, since the latex topper will be on top. Is my logic faulty there?

Hi downlover,

I called Amore and he's going to get back to me. He said that the feel is identical. But I pushed to find out, because I want to know.


As I suggested earlier, simply look on the law tag sewn into your mattress and it will tell you if there is latex in your mattress or not. That would be the fastest way to find out.

He was quite resistant, maybe because it's Friday and it was late in his work day, but I don't want to hear that "it's whatever I think I have."


I’m guessing that they would have to go through a bit of paperwork or production records to find out that information as to what shipped to you and the specifications at that time, and it may be that the person with whom you spoke would not have that information at hand, and not necessarily being "resistant". While there is only 1” of either the latex or memory foam on top, there would be a slight difference in feel, but with a topper on top this difference would be minimized even more.

It will be reeeally interesting if it is memory foam, because it is really cool sleeping, and really easy to move around on.


Most of the ease of repositioning will be due to the polyfoam layers and the spring unit beneath your 1” layer of either memory foam or latex.

Maybe the graphite can do that to memory foam by making it less mushy?


Graphite is added for thermal conductivity and also the anisotropic properties it displays (can help to slightly increase the durability of softer foams without impacting comfort). It would not be an issue of increasing resilience which you would notice for repositioning.

Either way, if the topper works, it works, and I guess if it is really good, I could actually consider a memory foam for the rest of the bed, since the latex topper will be on top. Is my logic faulty there?


I’m not clear of your thought process here. If you place a topper on this existing configuration and it "works", why would you change anything? If you select another mattress that uses more memory foam, you’ll be changing the entire feel of what is under the topper, which would start your process all over again. And the more memory foam you would use, the more difficult it would be to reposition upon the mattress.

The tag only had lot # and stuff like that, nothing with the ingredients. He contacted me via email just now and let me know that the one I got was made with latex.

Sorry for the confusion about my thought process. If it works great on the bed I have, I'll keep that, but if it doesn't, and I'm searching for another bed, I think I can stop avoiding memory foam, necessarily, and am wondering if that sounds right. I know that if this one doesn't work, I will have to start the process all over again. I wouldn't be worried about it so much, but I'm getting pretty close to the end of this trial, and I will need to get a bed in here before I return the other.

BTW, for reference, he said that though they changed their mattress, if you talk to them, they can make one with the latex instead of the other foam. So that's an option they have that's not obvious on their site.

Hi downlover,

I’m glad they were able to find out the information your needed and got back to you quickly. That’s great news.

As for the identification, your mattress should have been delivered with the “law tag” that would have contained the information listed here . A US law tag will look something like this
ADMIN NOTE:Removed 404 page link | Archived Footprint: americanlawlabel.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/Anatomy-of-Law-Label.pdf
and is required to say that the mattress includes all new materials and the type and amount of materials inside expressed as a percentage of weight along with the other information listed including the date of manufacture. Information showing that the mattress has passed the fire regulations is also required and is often included in the same tag. You can see some more of the type of information that is normally on a law tag in some of the images here .

I think I can stop avoiding memory foam, necessarily, and am wondering if that sounds right.


I wouldn’t know whether or not you’d like a mattress using memory foam, as that is a personal preference. I can tell you that if repositioning is a primary concern for you, you may desire something more resilient than a mattress that uses larger amounts of memory foam in the upper layers, as in some combinations it can be more difficult for people to move about in such a configuration.

BTW, for reference, he said that though they changed their mattress, if you talk to them, they can make one with the latex instead of the other foam. So that's an option they have that's not obvious on their site.


That’s good for people to know should they wish to order the previous version of the Amore Bed. Thanks!
