Question Regarding Latex Mattress

Posted by firsttimeowner (My Page) on

I am thinking of ordering a latex mattress for myself. I like what foamorder has to offer. Does anybody have any experience with them?

I am thinking of ordering a 9 inch all natural latex with a all natural cotton case. But, I am not sure if I should go with 3 layers of 3 inches each or 2 layers(core would be 6 inch). The 3 layers give you a better option of exchanging if needed, but are also a little less supportive then having one 6 inch layer.

I have a bad back, so I was thinking one of these two options:
Two 3' inch layers of Extra Firm(36 ILD) and one 3' inch layer of Medium(29 ILD).
One 3' inch layer of Extra Firm(36 ILD), One 3' inch layer of Firm(31 ILD) and one 3' inch layer of Medium(29 ILD).

Can anybody help me decide on which would be the best option for me? Also, would one 6' inch core or two 3' inch cores would be better? Lastly, if anybody has worked with FoamOrder, I would love to know how your experience was with them.

I know these are a lot of questions, but I am very confused. And they are not available in New Jersey, so I can not visit their showroom.

I would ask your question on the What's the Best Mattress forum. There are lots of people there who have latex mattresses.

RE: Question Regarding Latex Mattress

I had a latex mattress for a while and LOVED it!

I would call The Savvy Sleeper. They are an authority on this stuff and can talk by phone about which firmness you need.

I'm not trying to be a commercial here...they're just known to be really great about this sort of thing. Here's a really detailed post about them that was written elsewhere.
