I have been doing a decent amount of research, particularly on this site and sleeplikethedead.com. My head is spinning!! We have been sleeping on a Queen-sized Classic 8" Tempurpedic for the last 8 years. There seems to major sagging in the mattress that is negatively affecting our sleep. Unfortunately, my wife misplaced the receipt and we cannot use our warranty because of the lack of proof of purchase. ANYWAYS…
We are in the market for a new mattress. We “sampled” a latex (or what they call latex) mattress at Jordan’s. They carry the Natura line and my wife and I both liked it. A bit pricey but nice. Then I did a little research and I guess the mattress is not constructed with the best materials…especially for the price.
So I began my search for latex. Then the information deluge on latex. Natural, organic, talalay, dunlop, contiunous pour, blended, synthetic, ild, and so on and so on. I don’t mind the information BUT not being able to test it, even for 5 minutes is a little concerning. With all of the online retailers, there seems to be value and quality there, but that is what my eyes and brain are telling me. Not my body. I was 2 seconds away from purchasing a King Organic from Plushbeds then I decided to research more companies. Then I was 2 seconds away from getting a King from SleepEz. Instead I decided to see what I could find on the two companies and mattresses respectively. And I found…more confusion!!
Again, my brain believes in the value and quality of these mattresses online. But my body has no clue. Its just a little difficult to make a rather large purchase sight unseen. Especially, reading the stories of trying to return some of these layers. My wife is against it. I’m still up in the air.
Are there any quality places in RI to “try/sample” latex beds?
Any help would be much, much appreciated!!
