Heavy folks - any feedback on Latex mattress long-term?


First post, have been lurking for a couple of weeks.

We have been looking for a new mattress, going to go look at the mygreenmattress store, reasonably local.

Wife and I are both heavy; any experience on how latex holds up? Mygreenmattress offers a couple of flipable models, I assume that would help longevity


Hi bean_counter,

Latex is the most durable of all the foam materials (polyfoam, memory foam, latex foam) regardless of which manufacturer uses it in their mattress. You can also read more about some of the other factors that have an effect on the durability of a mattress in post #4 here.

A two sided mattress will be more durable than a one sided mattress regardless of the type of material but the tradeoff is that there is also less design flexibility because the firmer support layer is in the middle of the mattress and there is less “room” to add softer materials on both sides because if there is too much soft foam on the bottom of a mattress it can affect alignment/support.
