hi phoenix ~ change of plans. i had planned to go to the mattress doctor to test the pure bliss mattresses but the do not have them on the floor yet. hopefully i can get out to the back store tomorrow to try them out.

in the meantime, i was researching the mattresses but cannot find what ild's the layers are in the pure latex bliss.

is this a guarded secret???

also, the guy at the mattress doctor said that latex international owns pure latex bliss and will be selling their own mattresses instead of supplying retailers. true or false?? i know that you have all the info!!!!!:)

thanks again for all your help!

Perhaps a "semi guarded" secret but there are some online sources that give this information but they are also listed in a few places in the forum including post #1 here (for the blended talalay versions).

also, the guy at the mattress doctor said that latex international owns pure latex bliss and will be selling their own mattresses instead of supplying retailers. true or false?? i know that you have all the info!!!!!


While it's true that Latex International owns PLB, I don't know where he is getting his information from about removing them from the stores or any plans to stop selling PLB through retailers. They are still expanding their distribution network and have even just released a new line and if they did this they would probably be cutting their own throat.

Hi missy,

sooooo, how do you go about constructing a diy??????


OK ... now you have a couple of "guidelines" that you can use. Bear in mind that no two mattresses that use different layering will be exactly the same so you will need to "approximate" the feel and performance of one mattress into the closest model that a particular manufacturer offers.

This involves several things.

1. Specific knowledge about every component of a particular mattress you are considering and knowing how it affects the mattress as a whole.
2. The technical knowledge about how a particular material and layering may compare to what you have tested.
3. The intuition to "translate" one type of layering into an approximation of the other.
4. Customer feedback about particular mattress designs so that your body type and sleeping positions can be "matched" to other customers that are similar.

All of these are available from the manufacturer of a specific mattress ... so your next step would be ...

1. Go to the list of online manufacturers that are members here and do some preliminary research on their website to find the ones that offer Talalay latex mattresses with options that can customize them (there are different degrees of customization available).

2. Call the ones that meet your criteria and talk with them. They will want to know about your specifics and the details of any mattresses that you liked in your testing (have the layering ready in case they're not familiar with them).

3. They will then give you some suggestions (and some of them can customize each side of a mattress to suit each of you separately) about which of their mattresses or layering options may come the closest to what you have tested and that would suit your body types and sleeping styles. they may also make other suggestions that they think you may want to take into account.

4. Now you will have a few "options" and some choices between "good and good". Now it's time to choose the one which you believe best fits your "value equation". This would include all the things like price, service, how well they seemed to "get" what you wanted and needed, options available to you for any exchanges if your selection isn't quite right and needs to be changed after you have slept on it etc.

This way ... you do the "reporting" about your needs and preferences and any details of mattresses you like and ask the questions you need answered and that are important to you. They help you with the design and help you make choices between the options they offer that they believe will best suit your criteria. In other words ... you do the reporting and ask the questions and they give you the benefit of their skills and knowledge about how particular choices may "fit" and help you make the best choices among the options that they have available.

Hi missy,

This is part of the new line of mattresses that were just released by Pure Latex Bliss called the Hybrid line . The mattresses use a form of Talalay latex than has phase change materials in it which helps to regulate temperature. They also use phase change materials in the cover. The latex material itself is called Talalay GL and it has a "fast response" version and a "slow response" version. In other words "active fusion" is just their trade name for the phase change temperature regulating materials. They were introduced earlier this year .

Yes ... those are not the specs of the Nature and if you are referring to "this link" then the mattress name and the description (which talks about slow response latex which is in the Hybrid line) don't match.
