I talked to Cheryl on the phone and she was very helpful and personable! My order was exactly correct and came in a decent time. I haven't had to contact them since, but I have a good positive impression of them!

Since my last post on here, I purchased a LaNoodle topper from Cozy Pure. A couple things I've noticed: It does take a little more effort to turn over, but I don't turn over as much, which is a good thing. This might also be from the new 100% cotton sheets I'm using...they seem to stick to each other and make it not as easy to move in bed, as well. I also think I feel a little hotter at night, but it could also be that it is unseasonably warm here right now! But over all, I really love my LaNoodle topper! I think it's just what I needed for the pressure point relief. My hips are not hurting as much now! :)

However, I still feel like the zoned pocket coils in my Quadra-Flex may be causing my low back to still ache when I wake up in the morning.

The guy from Flexus told me that there is room to add 1" more inside the mattress cover, so if I added a 1" firm latex on top of the coils, but below the 3" soft latex would that would help with not feeling the pocket coils zoned middle as much? Or would 1" not even be enough to change anything? Is there anything that can firm up the top third section of the zoned coils?

Just wanted to run this idea by you to hear your thoughts. I don't know what else to try, so please share if you have any other ideas

Thanks so much! :)

Hi jakofin.

I've just noticed your older post with the same questions that got buried under the other contributions and discussions in progress. Good that you brought it up! :)

It does take a little more effort to turn over, but I don't turn over as much, which is a good thing. This might also be from the new 100% cotton sheets I'm using...they seem to stick to each other and make it not as easy to move in bed, as well. I also think I feel a little hotter at night, but it could also be that it is unseasonably warm here right now! But overall, I really love my LaNoodle topper! I think it's just what I needed for the pressure point relief. My hips are not hurting as much now!


I am glad you are enjoying your LaNoodle topper from CozyPure and that it helped with the pressure point relief for your hips. Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. I always appreciate it! I agree with you ... the softer and thicker the comfort layer(s) are the more they’ll deepen the cradle around the body which will cause a little more motion restriction when turning and, as you've experienced, how much you sink in will also affect the sleeping temperature as well, but this won’t be as much as with memory foam layers. (Yes I see what you mean with the sheets sticking to each other, and getting caught underneath the body… I got trapped a few times myself. :) )

However, I still feel like the zoned pocket coils in my Quadra-Flex may be causing my low back to still ache when I wake up in the morning.


Generally speaking, you are correct that this would point to not having enough support or the comfort being too thick or too soft. I know you tried the medium instead of the soft and it felt too firm with causing you the pressure points, but I am a bit confused as to what you have… Quadra-Flex (11”} and a topper (2” or 3”) and La noodle ??? .. this would give you 6' + of comfort which may be responsible for the support issue that you are mentioning.

The guy from Flexus told me that there is room to add 1" more inside the mattress cover, so if I added a 1" firm latex on top of the coils, but below the 3" soft latex would that would help with not feeling the pocket coils zoned middle as much? Or would 1" not even be enough to change anything?


I did not realize that there was extra room in the cover, but depending on the setup you currently have this could be a very good solution to fine tune the mattress or mattress/topper(s) combo …I do agree with Flexu’s suggestion of adding the 1” firm Dunlop latex under the 3” of latex. Every layer and component in a mattress (including the cover and quilting) will affect the feel and performance of every other layer both above and below it and the mattress as a whole, and even though there is no way to know for sure if this would totally fix the issue, I would say that adding it could be just enough to help with resolving many of the issues you mentioned along the way such as"bottoming out" to the coils underneath, the wrinkles that your mattress cover developed (adding the extra inch will stretch the cover diminishing or eliminating the wrinkles), and will also add more support, although I would keep in mind that placing it under 6” of latex will have less effect than placing it under 3” (the deeper the changes within the mattress the least noticeable they are). .

All in all, this could work very well for you and I would certainly rely on Flexu’s advice. I hope you'll have some time to post back and let us know how well it worked for you.

Thanks for your reply! What I have is the quadra flex just like it came...8" zoned coils with 3" soft talalay latex inside the cover and the lanoodles topper on top. I might try adding the 1" firm inside the cover.

This is really a question for cozy pure, but what is the best way to "fluff" the lanoodles topper? It seems there is a pile of noodles down the middle of the bed and I'm not sure how to easily redistribute them.

Hi jakofin.

It seems that you have a good plan to add the firmer transition layer.

You are correct that Cozy would be the best to answer any maintenance related questions. They already made a note about this:

easier to "fluff" by redistributing the lanoodles weekly when you are changing your linens.


I hope they see your post to add a bit more color on this.

Hi Jakofin! Glad you are enjoying the LaNoodle Cuddle Top and it's helping with pressure point pain! The good thing about the "floating latex" is it does just that - floats around your body and cuddles your curves... with that said, the noodles do need to be redistributed occasionally. King size has more surface area so that size will definitely require a bit more maintenance than a Queen, Full or Twin size. Also much depends on what type of sleeper you are, because the more you move around, the more the noodles will shift as well. We usually recommend you redistribute the noodles weekly while changing your sheets so they don't continue to shift. "Fluff" the perimeter by gently lifting and shaking the topper, then using your fingers "rake" the noodles that are gathering in the center and redistribute them. Again, if this is done weekly, it's not too hard and there won't be much maintenance. Give us a call and we can give you a few other tips as well, or if you ever want to send it back to be "refluffed", we do that too! 800.229.7571 Monday - Friday 10 am to 6 pm ET.
Be well,
-cheryl

jakofin,
I was reviewing this thread and your comments are quite helpful. Could you give me your approximate body weights as another reference point? I know there are often preferences too, but this might be helpful.

I'm glad I could be helpful! I am 160#, side and back sleeper. My husband is 205#, mostly stomach but also side sleeper.

I still like my bed and still use the Lanoodles topper. The topper definitely adds cushioning and softness. We tried without it for a couple nights and wasn't as comfortable...my hips were aching in the morning. When I get in bed at night I have the feeling of Ah, this is so comfortable!
The one thing about the Lanoodles topper is that you do have to fluff it periodically, but I'm used to it now and feel it's worth the added effort.
Hope this helps!
