Was offered a Queen Southerland Refresh & Box Spring for $150...need some info

So I’ve never looked into latex mattresses and was recently offered by a friend of mine their practically brand new Southerland Refresh latex mattress and box spring. Unfortunately I can’t seem to find much information, reviews, or anything on the mattress itself as the company’s website is very sparce.


So, I’m just curious if this would be a good buy for me? I’m 6’3", 210 lbs. typically a back or side sleeper and have problems with getting too hot at night. I’ve always had coils so of course I would need to lay down on this mattress first and foremost but for that price I feel like it may be too good of a deal to pass up.

Let me know! Thanks!

ajever01, I’m sure others have better info on that particular mattress since the website is pretty slim on details. One thing I can say is that it’s difficult to touch nearly any mattress in a queen size for that, much less with the box spring/foundation. Latex is a good material and sounds like it’s mostly if not all latex (since the site says 5-10" of talalay). Much like anything else, it would likely only end up a good deal if you could use it - if you were in need of a mattress, you felt comfortable buying from your friend, if it was comfortable for you. If so, $150 could be a great deal. If you didn’t like the feel of latex or the particular firmness of that one and it didn’t work for you then $150 (even though it’s a really low price for latex) wouldn’t be much of a deal for you. Latex tends to sleep cooler than other kinds of foam and the site did mention talalay gl which is more heat neutral yet (since you have sleeping hot issues).

Hi ajever01,

I don’t think I can add much to brass’ comments :slight_smile:

I don’t know the specifics of the mattress, whether there are any weak links in the design (such as thicker layers of lower quality polyfoam above the latex), or whether it’s still in good condition and has no soft spots or sagging but outside of this … if the mattress is a good match for you in terms of PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences) then it would certainly be a very low price in terms of material cost for any mattress that used 5" to 10" of latex and also included a foundation.

It would be less than the price for a 2" latex topper for example.
