Safe, Quality Materials
Like our other mattresses, the Zenspring is made with organic and natural materials that are comfortable and safe. We use certified organic cotton and certified organic wool batting in our mattress casing. We never use chemical flame retardants, but instead opt for wool since it acts as a natural flame barrier. Chemical flame retardants have been linked to obesity, infertility, and even cancer. We take the health of our customers and employees very seriously, which is why we only source materials that are pure and safe. We spend a third of our lives sleeping, so the quality of our mattress is something that should never be compromised.
Inside the Zenspring are two major components: natural latex and pocketed-coil units. We offer customers two types of latex: Dunlop and Talalay. We compare Dunlop to pound cake since it has an overall denser feel than Talalay, which mirrors the pillowy lightness of angel food cake. Both Dunlop and Talalay come in Soft, Medium, and Firm densities, so there are plenty of options to choose from. When selecting your latex, it’s important for you to listen to your body and your own personal definition of comfort. Are you a side sleeper with hip pain? Perhaps a layer of Soft Talalay is the best fit for you since Talalay is known for its pressure-relieving qualities. Are you a stomach sleeper who likes a firm mattress? You may want to opt for Medium Dunlop.
The pocketed-coil units are available in Plush and Firm. The coils are individually wrapped and contour to your body’s curves, adding an extra layer of responsiveness and support. These coils move with your body, cradling you as you sleep. Pocketed-coil units differ from Bonnell springs, which are typically of lower quality. The biggest difference is how they are constructed. Bonnell springs are interconnected, so when your partner moves on his/her side of the mattress, you’ll feel it. This isn’t the case with the Zenspring because of our decision to use pocketed-coil units. Your side of the mattress is truly your side and will not be affected by your partner moving. Pocketed coils are also superior when it comes to pressure point relief, a critical aspect when choosing a mattress.
As you can see, the entire mattress is customizable, just like our all-latex mattresses. If you’re looking for an organic mattress that is at a lower price point when compared to all-latex options, then the Zenspring may be the perfect fit. You still have the convenience of customization and the peace of mind that comes with sleeping on all-natural materials, but at a more affordable price.
Which Configuration Is Right for Me?
We have suggestions for you as you choose your Zenspring configuration.
Some things to keep in mind:
- The less you weigh, the firmer a mattress is going to feel, so be conscious of that when choosing a configuration.
- It’s important to be aware of your body and how you sleep. A stomach sleeper typically needs a firmer configuration than a side sleeper. A side sleeper needs to mind their pressure points. If you sleep on your side and your mattress is too firm, you’ll wake up with hip and shoulder pain. Back sleepers have the most flexibility when it comes to choosing a configuration.
- We always recommend split configurations for partners so each person can have their needs met. At some point, your partner may want to switch our their layer of latex for a different density. When you have a split configuration, your partner can do this without affecting your side of the mattress.
- If you like a soft mattress, go with the Plush pocketed coils. If you like a firm mattress, opt for the Firm pocketed coils. As for the latex, read some of our ideas below.
