Hello, I was wondering if it's possible to purchase a 25 ILD Talalay Topper? I see the medium is 24 ILD which is almost the same thing but I would greatly prefer a slightly higher ILD. Thanks!

All latex foam has ILD tolerances that are +/-2 ILD so there is zero chance of you feeling any difference between a topper that was either 24 ILD or 25 ILD.

Hello xjbku,

Thank you for reaching out to Luma Sleep via The Mattress Underground.
We do not know of anyone selling a 25 ILD Talalay latex topper.
ILD specifications are based on a target ILD +/- 2 ILD. Target ILDs for Talalay Global (only US-based Talalay) are 19, 24, 28, 32, 36,40
The ILD value represents the average of different sections of the latex core that were tested.
Additionally, ILD testing is performed on 6" molded latex cores. A 2" or 3" topper is cut from the core.
In the case of a 24 ILD Labeled Talalay Topper, the topper can actually have a Talalay latex layer that was measured to be an average between 22-26 ILD.
ILD is a relative attribute of the material's firmness; it is virtually impossible for a person to be able to distinguish the firmness between a topper made from a core that tested an average of 24 ILD and one that tested an average of 26 ILD, especially when the topper is placed on a mattress.

Hope this helps!
