Here are a few pros if you choose a latex mattress.
Latex mattresses are incredibly comfortable. They’re supportive but also offer pressure point relief so you get the best of both worlds.
Natural latex is a sustainable alternative to polyurethane and memory foam. It is not synthetic or treated with harmful chemicals.
Natural latex is proof that Earth’s natural resources can result in a quality, durable product. It is healthier for both the customer and the planet.
We recommend choosing a latex mattress that is completely GOTS-certified organic as a finished product. This is one of the most impressive certifications in the mattress industry.
Some latex mattresses are customizable, meaning you can create the exact feel you want in your mattress by choosing specific layers of latex. Dunlop and Talalay latex come in Soft, Medium, and Firm densities.
Couples should look for a mattress that allows for customization on both sides--that way no one has to compromise their comfort.
As previously mentioned, latex mattresses are excellent for pressure point relief, particularly Talalay latex mattresses.
If you’re a side sleeper, Talalay latex will cradle the hips and offer gentle support.
Memory foam traps your body heat. It is this chemical reaction between the foam and your body heat that allows the mattress to conform to your body’s curves. This is comfortable at first but will eventually cause you to wake up in the middle of the night, overheated and uncomfortable.
Natural latex offers pressure point relief without trapping your body heat, so you can sleep cooler throughout the night.
Latex mattresses are designed to last. Besides the downside of overheating with memory foam, synthetic foams eventually have a difficult time bouncing back, leading to dips in the mattress.
While there are always exceptions to the rule, this is not as prevalent of an issue with latex mattresses, especially if you choose latex layers that support your weight and sleep position.
