We have just started our mattress search and are leaning toward the latex mattresses. There are a few places in San Antonio to try out latex mattresses. Most of the latex mattresses we have seen are a single sided, with layers in the latex. One place has the layered latex mattress with a topper on top that can be changed if your needs changes. Seems like a good idea. However, another place makes their beds to order and have a 10 inch double sided natural talalay mattress made of 18-24 ILD latex. I have not heard of a double sided latex mattress in my research, is it better than a single sided one? It was about the same price as the single sided layered ones.
Latex is a very high quality and durable material whether it is in a one sided mattress or a two sided mattress but there is more about the pros and cons of a two sided mattress in post #3 here and the posts it links to.
There is also more about the most important parts of the “value” of a mattress purchase in post #13 here that can help you make more meaningful comparisons between mattresses and decide which one is “better for you” regardless of whether the same mattress or design would be “better” for anyone else.
