I went with the 10" organic and 8" foundation from SleepEZ. Now I have to decide on a mattress protector. I'm looking at the St. Dormeir from FloBeds or the CozyPure. Both on sale today and I've giving myself a time limit on this decision unlike I did with the mattress selection :)

I had it narrowed down to Flexus and Sleep EZ too -- I don't think you can go wrong with either. Both have great customer service and solid feedback on this site. The deciding factor for me was that Sleep EZ had a lower ILD on their soft latex than Flexus did on their soft latex -- since I wanted as soft as I could get (all other things being equal), I went with SleepEZ (no regrets!). Is there any particular part of your personal equation you can fine tune with one or the other?

We've purchased a couple of mattresses for the kids and we're finally back to shopping for us. I've narrowed it down to Flexus and SleepEZ. I also looked at Sleeping Organic, Cozy Pure and Foam Sweet Foam in my research. Flexus and SleepEZ both appear to have great customer service, a solid product, good reviews and a competitive price. I'm not sure I can make a wrong choice with either of them but if anyone has any experience deciding between the two I'd love hear it. I've talked to both through chats and they were very helpful. Thanks!

Thank you for your interest in our products. The all latex option like the Savvy Rest is going to provide the best motion isolation vs a hybrid. We can duplicate at a much lower cost. I would recommend a Firm dunlop then medium Talalay then soft Talalay since you are mainly a side sleeper. Dunlop sleeps firmer than the equivalent Talalay so it's good for the bottom support layer. Being a side sleeper myself I use all Talalay for my personal bed. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hello, I would like to build a hybrid latex / coil mattress (or buy if I find the right model) and could use the advice of an expert.

Previously I slept on the Dreamfoam Ultimate Dreams 12-in-1 foam mattress on top of an IKEA Lonset slat system placed on the floor. I did not like it despite the 12-in-1 customization options. It led to occasional lower back problems (likely from putting slat system on floor).

I am currently on a Sertapedic Lyra which I cannot find details about online. It has a coil system with maybe two 1-2" support layers on top? I like this mattress, but it came with my house when I moved and is over ten years old so I want to replace.

I would like my new mattress to be supportive and not transfer motion from one side to the other. I tried beds at SavvyRest and liked the Firm Dunlop, Medium Dunlop, Soft Talalay and Firm Dunlop, Medium Talalay, Medium Talalay combos. At Urban Mattresses, I liked their hybrid options and really liked the Vispring options, but they were expensive and seem to be too complex for a DIY option.

Any advice for a 6', 155 lb stomach and side sleeper?

Hello all,

I'm not that happy with my mattress purchase and I'm unsure of which route to take to alleviate it?

After much research I purchased a 10" Sleep-EZ split-mattress, Firm-Firm-Soft (natural, not organic), all Dunlop. I'm a 5' 10'' 245lb side-sleeper, and my wife is 5' 10" 165lb back/side-sleeper.

We had initially planned on purchasing a spindle mattress, but their customer support told us that because of my weight I needed a 13" mattress, or their 10" plus an additional topper. We went to a SavvyRest showroom, and really enjoyed the firm-firm-soft configuration for both of us. I really liked the plushness of the soft top layer. Spindle doesn't offer a soft-option, so we decided to go with Sleep-EZ as it was more affordable than a SavvyRest. During ordering I was talked out of the 13" and back to a 10".

When we received it, we set it up on some plush carpet and found it softer then the SavvyRest we had initially tried. After setting it up on our wood-slat bedframe, the bed felt much firmer than we had expected, but was comfortable for my wife. After sleeping on it for a couple weeks, I've come to find it very uncomfortable, it's great if I'm sleeping on my back but am completely unable to sleep comfortably on my side.

I've tried stealing the soft layer from my partner's side and doing firm-soft-soft and while it's comfortable for me, I don't find it supportive enough, and sleeping on my side still results with tossing and turning. I don't know how to find the right combination for me.

My current ideas are,
  • Getting an additional firm (or x-firm) to put on the bottom, assuming the spindle guy was right and I need a thicker mattress, i.e. firm-firm-firm-soft
  • swapping out my middle firm layer for a medium or a soft, but think I would still need to get a 4th firm layer for the needed support, i.e. firm-firm-medium-soft
  • get two medium layers, i.e. firm-firm-medium-medium or firm-medium-medium
  • getting a wool topper

Any thoughts, suggestions, or corrections would be appreciated..

Thanks for getting back to me, I never got an email notification so didn't realize you had replied a month ago. I just came across your reply now as I started more mattress research yet again.

I ended up ordering the Luma Mattress in Medium, which is 15 gauge Bolsa coils with 2" of 28 ILD Dunlop. I also purchased their 3" Talalay topper in 19 ILD. My husband and I have been sleeping on it for about 3 weeks now and both love the plush feeling of the soft topper. I also love that my shoulder doesn't feel crushed on too firm a mattress for a change.

However, I am experiencing some mid-back pain just below my rib cage. I had my husband take a picture of my spine while laying on my side, and I can see that starting at my hips to around mid-back/waist my spine looks fairly straight, but then at that waist point it angles upwards to meet my shoulders which don't sink in as deeply as my hips do. I had my husband put his hand under the topper while I was laying there, and my hips do go all the way through and meet the 28 ILD transition layer.

I'm not sure whether this will solve the issue, but I've just initiated a comfort exchange for the 24 ILD topper instead. I'm a little nervous about the firmer topper, but am hoping it will help bring my hips a little higher to be more in line with my shoulders.

I have no idea which layer is actually too soft, and if maybe I would have been better off with the firmer Combi-Zone coils and still the 19 ILD topper. I knew the firm Savvy Rest coils I tried locally with a 19 ILD topper was still too firm, which is why I opted for the Bolsa, but I don't know the specs of those coils so it's possible the Luma Combi-Zone might not have been as firm as those.

Hello, this is my first post on this forum. I’m so glad to have found this forum and it’s wealth of information. I have been mattress shopping for a while now, and having a really hard time making up my mind. Latex sounded appealing, but I basically ruled it out early on because I thought it would be too expensive (we’re on a budget). I looked into the all foam bed in a box type beds, traditional coil springs from sealy, and hybrid designs to name a few. I was drawn to the Ghostbed mostly due to the latex layer it contained, but ultimately after reading many reviews, decided that an all (poly)foam mattress wouldn’t be durable enough for us. Then I found this forum, and in it some more affordable latex options, and more information about the benefits of latex. So, here I am about to embark on a journey of potentially building my own DIY all latex or latex hybrid bed.

I have been looking around, but mostly finding what I think I’ll need at an affordable price at Arizona Premium Mattress. I have a spreadsheet with 8 different configurations of layers and prices of each one, and am also considering the Eco Sleep Hybrid. We’d like to keep our price down to about $1000, but would be willing to go up to $1250 or so if it seemed worth it.

Here’s our sleepers’ profile: We need a king size.
My husband is 6’5” and 245lbs with very broad shoulders, he sleeps on his side. It would be worth mentioning that he carries most of his weight in his upper body, and is more muscle than fat. He is very hard on furniture (i’ve seen him accidently break many a chair), and his side of our mattresses tends to get saggy and way bent out of shape. He works as a blacksmith and at times has trouble with his back. He sleeps hot, having a breathable and supportive mattress are priority to him.

I’m 5’9” my normal weight is 165lbs with relatively broad shoulders for a woman, I sleep on my side. I am currently pregnant, and weighing in at 170lbs right now. I am not too picky about firmness vs softness (or I actually just don’t know what I like), but I know I have had situations where my shoulder gets numb from sleeping on my side while camping or on a very firm (old worn-out) mattress. We also have a 3 year old and 5 year old who occasionally sleep with us. The baby will be sleeping with us full-time once she is born. So, I need a set-up that won’t cause her to roll into me, one that reduces motion transfer (so when hubby rolls over it won’t wake the baby), and will also need a waterproof mattress cover.

I would love to hear y’all’s recommendation on a configuration that would be best for us, and also for a waterproof mattress cover. I will list some options I am considering, please tell me if there are any obvious concerns with any options, and which ones you think would fit our needs best. I want to strike the balance between firmness to support my heavier husband, and softness so I will be comfortable side sleeping. I don't think we want to do a split topper with different firmnesses on either side since we will have an infant sleeping in the middle, and i worry the crack would pose safety issues.

First of all, of all the configurations I’m considering, the Eco Sleep is still the most affordable. Would an Eco Sleep with Medium latex layer be supportive enough for husband and soft enough for me? Also, if we go this route would you recommend the Caliber or Bolsa springs? I see the Bolsa springs would be more conforming for side sleeping, but wondering if the lower gauge of the Caliber would make them more durable?

Now on to my custom configuration options, I believe I would like to use the bamboo and wool cover for any of these (I love wool!).

a. Eco sleep (caliber or bolsa)
medium

b. 6” coils (caliber or bolsa)
2” medium blended talalay
2” soft natural talalay

c. 6” coils (caliber or bolsa)
3” medium blended talalay
2” soft natural talalay

d. 6” dunlop medium
3” medium blended talalay

e. 6” dunlop firm
2” medium blended talalay
2” soft natural talalay

f. 3” firm blended talalay
3” medium blended talalay
3” soft blended talalay

g. 3” extra firm blended talalay
3” firm blended talalay
3” medium blended talalay

h. 3” extra firm blended talalay
2” firm blended talalay
2” medium blended talalay
2” soft natural talalay

Thanks for any input you have on these configuration options. Will the 3 X 3” toppers configurations work, or would I need a 6” core piece for the base? I will admit, I have not been to any mattress stores to try out mattresses, much less a latex mattress. I saw Ken from APM recommended looking for a Savvy Rest location to try out the latex feel. Their flagship store is about an hour and a half from me. I would like to go in and try out to see how the hybrid feels compared to an all latex, and see how the different firmnesses feel. How do I politely go about visiting their showroom knowing that all of their mattresses are out of my price range?

I want to get a new bed as soon as possible because ours is terrible, my husband can’t even sleep on it any more because it causes him so much back pain. But I also want to take my time on this decision and find a bed that will be comfortable and durable enough to last us a decade. I do need to have the bed, and all the kinks worked out well before my baby arrives in March. Looking forward to hearing from y’all. Thanks in advance!

@jwblue - Sorry to hear about the problem you've had in finding a mattress which meets your needs. In order for some of the experts here to provide you with their suggestions it would be helpful to have some further details.

First of all would be your size, weight, and preferred sleeping position. What was the previous mattress you bought that turned out to be "the wrong mattress" and what about it wasn't right for you? When you describe the new models you're considering as uncomfortable in certain positions what specifically are you referring to... i.e. do you mean they're too firm, are you experiencing a lack of support, back pain, etc?


- I am 6'0 and weigh 140. Slender.
- Prefer to sleep on back and side 50%/50%.
- Previous mattress that did not work was a Savvy Rest Infinity Spring (spring with dual latex). Gave back pain.
- With the mattresses I am considering the Play Vista with adjustable bed is too firm when adjusted. When flat it is comfortable. With the Culver it is too soft when flat. When adjusted it is comfortable.

I have decided I am going to buy a new mattress online, as locally my options are 1) affordable mattresses of poor construction (I'm looking at you, S-brands), or very, very expensive organic latex mattresses. I'm considering several different latex hybrids at this point, and have already spent a great deal of time on this forum and talked to a few manufacturers.

I have had the opportunity to test a couple latex-spring hybrids (Savvy Rest, Berkeley Ergo) at my local store, but am not sure I'm sold yet on the latex-spring construction. Another option I see a lot online but have NOT been able to try myself, is a foam core with a latex comfort layer (such as the Dreamfoam Aspen or Willow). Are there are brands of mattresses with this type of construction that I would be likely to find locally? I understand it wouldn't be a perfect comparison to what is available online, but it would still give me an idea of whether or not I like the foam/latex construction as opposed to spring/latex.

My mattress store options for actually getting to go lay on something just to get a feel for different construction types, are the high end organic stores that only sell latex/latex-spring hybrid, or your usual big box stores like Mattress Firm, Macy's, etc.

Hi Stephan416,

I was considering not having the two soft layers and switching one to something else. Mario at MFC had suggested a firm in its place. So S/M/F/F/F which sounds like a good option


Since organic dunlop latex does soften up quite a bit in the first 3 months, you may want to switch one of the 20ILD soft layers to a 30ILD medium layer if you prefer a firmer mattress.

Regarding the impressions, that does seem kind of premature no? Their warranty states a minimum of 1.5 inches for warranties which seems like alot. I know Tempurpedic is 0.75 but that's not the same stuff at all.


This is not premature an expected from these types of mattresses. 1.5" is standard in the industry, you can compare with Savvy rest for example that also only cover visible indentation greater than one and one-half inch.

I understand that latex is a little weird to deal with but sloppy cuts are a different matter. I stopped in to a local store and tried some GreenSleep models and they also have a layered system that isnt glued. They are actually individually put into cotton socks as well which is a nice addition

We don't include individual organic cotton sleeve on each layers for several reasons:
1-Cost savings
2-The layers stick together better and you get less shifting of the layers because of the stickiness of latex on latex
3-It's not really needed as the layers are inside a cover already and you will probably only handle the layers a few times and then never open up the cover again
4-We do offer them if you want them, the cost is $40 per layer in a Queen size.

How do you sleep? I'm personally 5ft-10 160lbs, wider shouldered, small waist. Tend to sleep on my side or stomach. I think I like more of a medium firmness mattress. Definitely not into the sloppy super sunk in feeling all too much. I like the Tempurpedic teal firmness which is their middle firmness I beleive.


You will never get the same feeling out of a pure rubber mattress than you will from a Tempurpedic. Organic dunlop is the most supportive mattress material available, and has a high pushback factor. You will not sink into the mattress and will feel supported.

Good luck in your search, and keep us posted on what you decide to do.

regards


I hope I didnt come off as knocking MFC. I'm definitely not. Offering a latex mattress at your price points is a KILLER deal! Those stores I had visited had price points of 3000-5000( with an equivalent thickness and adjustable model going for around 4000). If your reasonably confident in what layering you want then MFC is right at the top it seems. For me its know what to order that currently hanging me up hence why I'm trying out the firmness option locally first :)

Hi bobkbed.

Thanks for the informative post about your slat foundation without center support, etc. You must be really quite handy and creative to rebuild/improve this unit.

As you already suspect, I think with the right 9" of latex, and your center support, you are not going to feel the effects of the bowed slats anywhere close to your old IKEA mattress which was probably 5.6 inches originally (Ikea used to purchase boatloads of 14cm cores from Latexco and Sapsa in Europe.)

As fas as the placement of the "more bowed slats", my instinct says it won't make much difference in terms of sleeper support. The standard wooden 1 x 3" slats with gaps and 2. 5" apart (no more than 3") are about 50% of the total support surface area. While it probably wouldn't be an issue in the shorter term ... the lower surface area in contact with the mattress would result in a greater risk that the latex would sag into the gaps in between the slats over the longer term although it's not really possible to quantify the higher risk except to say it would be "less supportive" for the latex.

While it may be an "abundance of caution" ... if you would like to reduce the risk then an inch or two of very firm polyfoam in between the mattress and the platform bed or adding a 1" rubberized coir bed rug like this or even something like the vinyl lattice here would reduce the risk.

I look forward to any new updates and let us know if you have any other questions.
