5 Reasons To Choose A Latex Mattress Topper
Are you feeling stiff and sore after waking up in the morning? If so, it's time to give your mattress an upgrade. Investing in a latex mattress topper is one of the easiest ways to bring comfort and support back into your bedtime routine.
This unique type of organic mattress topper provides many excellent benefits that regular foam or pillow top mattresses cannot match - giving better relaxation during sleep and enhancing overall health through improved posture. Here are five reasons why we believe a latex mattress topper is worth considering for all homeowners looking for more restful nights.
I recently purchased a new mattress, but it feels too hard.
Assessing the true feel of a mattress can be challenging as it may differ when you sleep on it regularly versus trying it out briefly in-store. Don't fret if the mattress seems slightly firmer than expected as this does not necessarily mean it was a bad choice.
If you find that your new mattress is not as soft as you would like, consider adding a latex mattress topper. For minor issues, a 1" soft topper may be sufficient, but a 2" topper is usually the best option. For more serious problems or those who prefer a softer feel, a 3" topper may be perfect. Using a soft latex topper will slightly soften the feel of your mattress without significantly changing its overall sensation. In fact, it may even provide better support than the mattress alone.
My mattress is old and causing discomfort.
Using a latex mattress topper on top of an old and uncomfortable mattress can rejuvenate it inexpensively. Most mattresses have a layer of soft polyurethane foam on the top, which degrades gradually and loses firmness with time. Therefore, instead of purchasing a new mattress altogether, a latex mattress topper is a fantastic and budget-friendly option.
The process of a mattress losing its firmness may happen earlier than expected, regardless of how expensive it is. In some cases, the springs beneath the foam stay in good shape even after the foam has worn out. This can cause the mattress to feel firmer since there is no more soft foam to provide cushioning, leaving only the sensation of the firmer springs.
If your polyurethane foam mattress has lost its cushion, adding a latex mattress topper can bring it back. Latex foam is more supportive and adding a latex topper may make your old mattress feel more comfortable. Plus, you won't have to worry about the topper breaking down like polyurethane foam. Our latex topper can often last for more than 20 years.
Sleeping on my new mattress makes me too hot
Organic cotton and latex mattress toppers are a good choice for hot beds since they have excellent breathability. In contrast, memory foam used in many beds retains heat and lacks air channels to facilitate airflow. Latex foam is naturally breathable and has air channels that allow air to circulate, preventing heat retention.
Select a latex topper that is thick enough to create a sufficient separation between your body and the mattress cover. Additionally, be aware of any other materials present on the mattress surface, as synthetic and non-breathable materials can be challenging to combat in terms of heating effects.
I dislike how my memory foam mattress sinks in when I lie on it.
Although we don't offer memory foam products, we understand why people are attracted to its initial appeal over latex foam. However, it's important to note that many individuals discover that the memory foam mattress they were initially drawn to because of its "cool" factor in the store, is actually uncomfortable to sleep on. As previously mentioned, it tends to become hot during use.
Frequently, customers complain about their memory foam mattress sagging, which is a common issue among sleepers. The slow responsiveness of memory foam, which may seem appealing when tested in a store, becomes a problem for people during an actual night's sleep. This means that people can't move around comfortably in their sleep and often wake up during the night. In contrast, latex foam is very responsive and will move with you to offer support wherever you need it.
If you struggle with memory foam shifting every time you move, consider using a durable latex foam topper instead. To prevent sinking in the memory foam, we suggest using a 3" latex topper. Alternatively, a medium or firm 2" latex topper can also provide some relief.
I am in the process of making my own mattress and require a top layer.
Many customers have decided to create their own mattresses and we offer various options for this, including our range of organic latex foam toppers. Our selection of 100% natural latex options is ideal for those looking for an eco-friendly and chemical-free mattress.
It's important to know that a bed using just our bare latex foam won't meet federal fire regulations if you're building your own mattress. Our mattresses have a wool barrier that ensures they meet these standards.
Most people experience the best level of comfort and support when using organic mattress with a latex foam mattress topper. Whether you're trying to improve an uncomfortable sleeping surface or creating your own mattress, these reasons should convince you that investing in a quality latex foam mattress is the right choice. Although it may seem like an added expense in the short-term, you will be thanking yourself for making this investment when enjoying a better sleep in the long run.
