I ordered a Talalay talatech king size 3" topper from brooklyn bedding and was pretty excited to sleep on it. When I unrolled it I found that it had a blue glue seam hard as a rock!! If a just casually lay my leg over the seam it hurts. At first I thought it was crazy to be like this but after some research, apparently all king talalays are glued. Ok fine.

Any recourse here? Is it supposed to be THIS hard? Is it possible to cut it apart and reglue with softer glue? Thanks!

Hi weasley8.

Welcome to our Mattress Forum. :)

Sorry to hear about the strange, painful seam in your topper. Is it running down the middle like two toppers glued together to create the kingsized topper? I'd be interested to see how it is advertised on their website.

Also, have you already reached out to Brooklyn Bedding with your concern? That'd be the first place to start. They may be able to exchange it for one with a less noticeable seam.

You could theoretically cut it using an electric meat carver (like one of those small ones used to carve turkey) and then buy a seam filler or use your preferred glue.

I've been thinking about the electric meat carver. Would cutting the king in half also significantly reduce motion transfer? That's another problem I have with this topper.

How likely is the average person to succeed at cutting 28 ILD talalay with an electric meat carver? If I mess it up I can't return it.

It would definitely additionally reduce the motion transfer.

We also have this Phoenix thread on cutting latex that you may find useful!
