Thanks so much for the Mattress Underground site! I’ve learned so much, and while this has made my mattress shopping a much more drawn out and intensive process, I’m confident that it will end in a much better mattress than I would have bought without all this information.
In trying many mattresses, I seem to have shifted from the ultra firm I’ve always liked and currently have to a somewhat soft top 2" , with something firmer below. In trying every mattress that I can find locally, I’ve discovered that my favorites seem to be memory foam over a latex layer, or at least over something resilient. However, they are either questionable quality, or more expensive than I’d like. I’m wondering if you are aware of a mattress with a memory foam layer over latex layer that is good quality and value.
The memory foam over latex which is my favorite is the REM Sleep Solutions Paradise. It might be good quality (I’m not sure of specs) but it’s pricey.
Other mattresses I’ve really like in the showroom are Tempurpedic Weightless Select and Cloud Select, Comforpedic Silver Strand (Macys), Serta Iseries Pergola, Serta Iseries Haydon, Icomfort Inception. These all have a lighter memory foam layer that seems more resilient in itself, and a resilient layer below that is not latex. But I’m worried about the durability of those lighter foams, even though they feel good to me. And sales people are not very helpful with finding out the specs.
Can you suggest anything, given these preferences? And are you aware of any memory foam over latex mattresses that are a good value? I’d rather not buy on-line, but I haven’t completely ruled it out either.
To make my shopping more complex, I also like latex in the top layer, and have tried PureLatexBliss and European Sleep Design. Those are very nice, but I find I like the firm feeling memory foam gives once I’ve sunken in over the softer feeling of those with latex top layers.
I hope you make a suggestion of mattresses to consider. First choice memory foam over latex, but also perhaps more resilient memory foam in a thin layer, with a preference to being able to try it in person, rather than on-line order.
