Best Latex Mattress Out There

What kind of design are you sleeping on?  Memory foam is popular and you really can’t go wrong with a high-quality innerspring mattress. But more people are beginning to gravitate towards latex mattresses. With their own unique list of features and selling points, finding the best for you isn’t a bad idea.

Keep reading here on Sleep Ask to learn what this type of design is and what you can expect from sleeping on one. They’re ideal for a variety of sleepers and once you try one, you might wonder why you waited so long. Here are some of the best designs on the market to consider.

Why is this Design a Good Choice?

This type of material is the often overlooked as a buying option. If you’ve heard of the design before, you probably know that it's an alternative to memory foam. While memory foam is great at relieving pressure and providing comfort, they’re usually made with less than friendly materials.

Foam bedding is natural, durable, and better for your health and the environment. But  this design is not known for being the most comfortable. That’s why if you’re looking for high quality, we’ll almost always recommend a hybrid that includes foam and one other component.

But it’s not impossible to find a really well designed product without any extra materials. It just takes a little more research and an understanding of the materials that make up this type of design

What are the Pros and Cons? 

Still not sure what the ideal product is for you? Here are pros and cons of owning one that should help you decide.

Pros

    • Comfortable-Foam offers pain reduction and pain prevention. They relieve pressure points and help with lower back pain.
    • Durable-This design usually last the longest out of all  types. You can expect it to last for at least 10 years.
    • Motion Absorption-Durable and a great for couples. They keep disturbances to a minimum so restless partners won’t wake up the other party in the bed.
    • No Off-gassing-One of the biggest complaints surrounding memory foam is that it leaves the air filled with a toxic odour. You won’t experience this with durable foam. 

Cons

  • Firmness- This designis usually very firm. If you prefer a softer bed, then products made form this material might be too firm for you. You can always consider a extra pad if this is the case.
  • Compression-Some products develop indentations over time. This can be prevented by buying natural foam and by following rotation and flipping instructions from the manufacturer.
  • Heat-Some sleepers have reported that their beds are warmer to sleep in than they would like. Look for a  product that has a natural material like cotton or wool to improve breathability or one with cooling technology.

How to Find Quality. 

You can try out a few options for a good night's sleep at a department store. Get a feel for the firmness levels and what kind of features seem to be the most important to your individual sleeping needs. After you have a better idea of what you’re looking for, head to Amazon online where you can save money and make sure that you’ve found high quality that meets your needs.

Check out the details of each brand and go through the reviews. You should also double check sleep trial windows and warranty information. These types of design are usually shipped compressed and straight to your door so you can easily put them in any room of your house and start enjoying a good night's sleep.

Who Should Buy This Product?

If you’re a fan of memory designs but hate that you don’t have the bounce of an innerspring, you’re the perfect candidate for a foam design that does not include memory material. You should also consider this product if you’re tired of worrying about the chemicals that came with your memory foam product. Even if you choose a hybrid, you can rest easier knowing that your product was designed with a superior material.

You should not buy a foam design if you already own a natural memory foam design and love how it feels. If you’re already sleeping in a great bed and don’t have any complaints regarding firmness or comfort, even high quality foam might feel like a downgrade.

Caring And Maintence

If you take care of your new product it will provide you with plenty of wonderful nights' sleep. While taking care of foam isn’t that much different than any other design, these specific tips should help you get more out of your investment.

Use the Right Foundation

The foundation you use can make all the difference in the comfort you experience. If you use a traditional box spring foundation, even better quality designs can sag. You should also avoid a wooden slatted foundation as this can cause compression between the slats. This can reduce the lifespan of even superior bedding. In most cases, you’ll want to use a specifically designed base. These will help provide the support your needs and provide you  with many years of regular sleeping. If you’re unsure, speak with the bed manufacturers to see what they recommend.

Keep Moisture Away

Moisture and bedding materials don’t mix. You should make sure you never spill any sort of liquid on your bed and if you do, wipe it up right away. But if you live in a humid climate, you need to worry about moisture sitting inside the materials for prolonged periods of time. Periodically check for moisture by running your hand along the bottom of the foam. If you can get to the layers of of the foam check in between that as well. Visually inspect for mildew or mold. If you do come across moisture, remove the bedding and let it air out. If you come across mold or mildew, call the manufacturer to discuss how to treat your product properly.

If your room seems to be damp more often than not, here’s how to fix the problem.​

Flip and/or Rotate as Needed

Most products whether spring or foam need to be flipped or rotated from time to time. But some of the best brands of foam don’t require this type of maintenance. The material is usually layered and  strategically placed to provide you with the best firmness and comfort. If you flip, you could be sleeping on an uncomfortable layer. It’s best to follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding flipping and rotating this type of design.

Keeping Comfortable

Just as it’s important to keep your bedding free from excess moisture, you also want to keep it at the right temperature. This means avoiding electric blankets or letting your bed sit in an area of your bedroom where it will be exposed to extreme sunlight. If you’re storing the product for a prolonged period of time, avoid keeping it somewhere where it will be exposed to freezing temperatures.
