Thanks to the great info on this site, we'll probably be ordering an Ultimate Dreams mattress in the near future. Really good stuff here.

Hi prylex,

I'm glad you found us as well :)

There was an extra http:// in your link so I edited it to make it work so that others that read your post in the LA area can link to the same list.

Good luck ... and feel free to post with any questions along the way.

Wanted to follow up on what I eventually did.

Purchased from sleepez.com and talked to the owner. Very friendly and knowledgable. Purchased the 8 in. special with two 3" Layers of 100% natural "Dunlop" latex + one 2" Layer of 100% natural "Talalay" latex encased in 4 way zipper cotton cover plus 2 free pillows for $1245. Great deal! We just got the standard firmness setup and it works great for my wife and I.

The only "surprise" was that it came in 2 big boxes and we had to put it together ourselves. It's tougher than you think since the latex is surprisingly heavy and we had to stack them correctly on our bed and then zip it up, which is a very tight squeeze! So, I never thought I would be putting a mattress together, but I did, and would do it again. Not as difficult as some Ikea furniture:)

Definitely recommend these guys, not local, but who cares. With a great guarantee, good service and great prices and product, no wonder these guys have been in business so long and do so well. Thanks for the website and help in choosing this mattress.

Hi FavoriteHOMEboy,

Congratulations on your new mattress :)

It can sometimes be a bit of a challenge to put a latex mattress together (because as you mentioned latex is heavy) but once you get the hang of "waving" the layers into position it goes fairly easily. It's also great to know that you can exchange layers if it ever becomes necessary down the road instead of buying a whole new mattress and a DIY mattress is a small "price to pay" for the kind of quality and value that SleepEz offers.

Thanks for the feedback

As the person said before me, thank you so much for the abundant information! I didn't know much about mattresses before coming to the site but now I feel much more confortable. After going to a Sleepy's to test out some mattresses I found out I prefer plush mattresses. I enjoyed the Carolina Mattress Guild plush there but it was over my budget. Then, from research on Amazon and help from this site I found the Ultimate Dreams mattress. I think I'm going to go for it and purchase that online even though part of me still thinks it is risky since I haven't tested it. But if so many people out there enjoy it so much and didn't get a chance to test it out too I am very confident I will enjoy it. Thanks again :)

Hi dimps5790,

Thanks for the kind words.

While the CMG at sleepys are probably some of the better value there ... they don't provide any meaningful information about the mattresses and neither of them are latex so they wouldn't really be an effective guideline except perhaps as an indicator of a general preference for softer over firmer in the comfort layers.

If you want to test some latex before ordering which may be a slightly more effective guideline for an online order and help you "match" the comfort layer that you would prefer (or even to get a sense of the "feel" of latex) ... I'd be happy to point you in the direction of any possibilities in your area I'm aware of if you let me know your city or zip.

Sure that would be great! Anywhere around the 19127 (philadelphia) or 18940 areas would be ideal.

Hi dimps5790,

Post #4 here includes some latex options around the Wilmington, Philadelphia, Trenton area that should give you a better idea of the feel of latex and some different latex firmness levels. I would make a few phone calls first just to make sure that they will provide you with ILD or layering information (ILD is a "comfort" spec and many outlets may not supply them because they are not connected to quality and the "comfort" of a mattress can be felt in a showroom so ILD is not so important in local testing).

Hope this helps :)
