I was looking at the Natural latex bed “10” from Flexus comfort and the Organic latex “10” mattress from Sleepez. Not sure why the big price difference between the two beds. Using same materials but Flexcomfort is $1899 and Sleepez is $2399.

Hi Todd123.

Welcome to our Mattress Forum. :)

Price differences can come down to a lot of things, from the lot pricing given for the latex from the original producer, to the size of the order made for components, to the price of shipping, operating costs, to the markup required to keep their business generating revenue and paying the light bill.

I couldn't tell you why these seemingly similar mattresses vary so widely in price, but Sleep EZ offers a much more limited selection in comparison with Flexus' stock.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Yes, I thought the price difference was big enough to maybe throw up a red flag. Both companies are trusted members here. I thought I did pretty much apples to apples comparison. Just as long as the price difference is not because of a lesser grade material.

Hi Todd123.

You may be able to identify where they are sourcing their latex from on their site, but my guess is with the number of certifications each company has on their latex, they're quite comparable. In this case, the price disparity is just one of those things.

Another factor that can have a significant impact on pricing is return policies. You should check the specific return policies which each retailer has on the specific products you're considering. SleepEZ for example offers mattresses using the same materials for varying prices depending if you purchase the complete mattress or as individual layers. They limit returns of individual layers to one per customer, while if you purchase the complete mattress as a package they offer more flexible return options but at a higher price.

come on mod team.



natural and organic are not the same thing. The raw materials for organic latex are certified to be free of pesticides, come from sustainable farms, treat their workers fairly, etc, etc and as a result costs more. Natural latex has no such certification but the label should distinguish products from blended latex, which is a mix of natural and synthetic materials.

Both Flexus and SleepEZ sell natural and organic models. From personal experience I can also tell you the "100% natural" model from flexus actually mixes natural dunlop and blended talalay. Blended talalay is a perfectly good product but it is cheaper to produce and it would be nice if that was accurately labeled on the flexus website.
