Solution to soften ILD 36 Latex mattress? 24 Aug 2021 11:04 #1

TL;DR: Wife prefers 6" ILD 36 Latex without any comfort layer. The next option with a 2" additional latex layer was a tad bit soft for me. What should I do? Search for a mattress that has a 1" comfort layer or buy a 1" mattress topper?

Went mattress shopping today to Literie Provinciale (Montreal) after seeing shop suggestions over here. We are set on replacing our second-hand IKEA spring mattress where we can almost feel the hard springs each time we move. We tried the hybrid spring options but decided based on PPP that we liked the all Latex better. The Latex here is 100% Latex Talalay. 6" ILD 36. From what I'm seeing, it's a trusted store.

However, while ILD 36 works for my wife like a charm. For myself, I do like a bit of a softness to my sleep. They did not have the option to add a 1" Talalay to the bed - this would have been ideal for me, less for my wife.

Are there solutions on the market where I can add a 1" Latex layer to add softness? Or is that the wrong direction?

Edit: I did notice the comment about 1" topper in the topic below. If topper is the way to go, I'm looking for a topper and not necessarily to add it to the set-up, I.e., I don't think there's enough give in the fabric to add an inch encased.

It would be for half of a Queen-sized bed (30"*40") if possible - I prefer my wife has her ideal: ILD 36.

What was the ild of the soft layer? From personal experience 36 is quite firm. Have you considered a medium topper like a 2 inch 28ild?
