How long should I try out a mattress?

Hi t_violet,

Thanks for the update … I appreciate it.

The density of the latex (the amount of raw material used in the mold for the latex core) and the size and spacing of the pincores are the two main ways that latex is made either softer or firmer.

There are some instructions here (thanks to diynaturalbedding) that can help with compressing a latex layer if you have difficulty folding it to fit inside a box but as you mentioned … latex is bouncy, heavy and “floppy” and isn’t the easiest material to handle and it certainly helps to have two people.

I’m looking forward to finding out how your new comfort layer works out for you :slight_smile:
