Bedroom / Bed Mattress - Simple foam is great I think Need help
Mattress from foam - custom made
Comfortable Mattress. Surprisingly simple and perhaps cheap -you help find it for us all.
A plain latex (I think) mattress was the most comfortable I've slept on in years.
I visited my Aunt for Christmas and slept on a bed that was exceedingly comfortable. By the third day I was
wondering what the brand was so I could consider getting one. To my surprise it was simply a large block of
foam mattress. The top felt a bit softer than the main body of the mattress but I think this was simply due to the
fact that the top is where you can push easily so it feels a bit softer.
The sleeper feels the mattress is very firm. And it was so very comfortable that I did not want to get out of bed.
Let me reiterate that the mattress material was the same all the way through. It was not softer on top and it was
the same material throughout the whole mattress. I'm very sure it was not a 'visco' or other special foam.
I've researched those and am a materials scientist so I'm aware of the subtle differences.
What I'm not aware of is the mattress marketplace.
This is where I need help with two ideas.
1. Could my comfort simply be the novelty of a new mattress? I wondered about this and frankly a firm mattress is
not something I would pick normally. I'm not even sure it can be called firm because it's just a block of foam.
2. Where can I buy a block of foam. It's not a special foam. It's not any of the special foam mattresses that you
see advertised. It was an inexpensive and basic piece of foam with a covering and no name.

What do basketball players sleep on ?
I would be willing to take delivery of a plain piece of foam about 8" x custom size and have a cover made for it.
I am 6'2 " tall and even a King or California King is not really the right size for me. Since this is just a piece of foam
with a covering I wonder if I could get a custom made mattress in a size that fits me better or maybe you know
of larger than King or California King. IF you do please make a comment. Thank you.
If I can find this in a king size for under $200 I'll feel like I found a fair deal. Can you help locate this kind of product
for us all who would be willing to take my advice and try this style of mattress?
