Hi pmperron.

Yes, the foam in that mattress is on the low quality side in terms of durability. It looks like you've continued to have a great conversation with Mattrebuild and I'm glad you've been able to come to a decision on how to proceed.

Looking forward to any updates you may have for us after your appointment on Tuesday!

Hi there,

What did you end up getting?

I'm in similar situation. In Montreal, visited one manufacturer who tried to convince me to purchase the absolute most expensive option available. Not impressed and now back to square one.

I'd like to find a local manufacturer where I can choose different layers of latex so I can use the 3" latex topper I already have.

Hi,

I ended up w/ a custom-made mattress from family-owned Matelas Sélection. Service was incredible. The owner, Stéphane, is a gentleman. I tried different set-ups and ended up hoosing this one.

⅔” Tencel
2” Talalay latex (PCF 5.1, ILD 28)
1¼” Poly (PCF 2.5)
834 pocket coils (3 Zones, Caliber 13.5-14.5)

Now if I could do it again, I’d go for more latex. I was worried about support but I’d like more comfort.

Matelas Lapensée are also great if you’re looking for a reversible, double-sided option.

And if you’re willing to travel to Sherbrooke or Magog to try their Matelas Le Rêve, the more comfy version seems worth it, well priced, and they’re the top recommandation in Protégez-Vous.

Don’t hesitate if you’ve got more questions.

Cheers!

Hi there pmperron,
Wondering if you're still happy with your purchase from Matelas Selection?

I ended up going with an all Talalay latex from Matelas Princesse. Not happy with it at all. Starting over from scratch, hoping to sell the latex and toppers I've spent so much on, and trying a hybrid. I just can't get the right combo of latex with various layers, toppers, etc. Too soft or too hard, in pain all the time, and now past the 100 day mark. I don't like the feel of latex at all.

So looking for local reputable companies where I can try hybrid mattresses. Not Matelas Selection (started there, not a good experience with the owner),, or Matelas Princesse (great until after sale and not very helpful in working with me to try different layers).
