Advice for purchased mattress within return period 10 Feb 2020 07:38 #11

Hi mattrebuild,

Thanks for sharing your similar situation and letting me know how you solved for it. We’re definitely leaning more towards a customized solution. I’m not sure if we’re quite ready to take on building a DIY mattress yet, but if we eventually do, your information will prove very valuable. As a close first step, we’re thinking about going with a retailer that offers a zippered latex mattress with split sides where we can customize the layers per side. Thanks again for providing the information and reading through my posts.

Advice for purchased mattress within return period 18 Feb 2020 08:21 #13

Hi Ken Hightower,
Thank you again for your research on the Paramount Nature's Spa that I purchased. In a previous post you mentioned:

I was able to find the specs online and based on what I learned I can tell you that the mattress will get softer and softer over time until you lose the support part of the mattress. The base core is just poly foam, then a layer of micro coils, then latex, then a bunch of more poly foam over the top and in the quilted cover. These top layers will continue to soften and then you will get the same impressions that most other mattresses get. The latex benefits are rendered useless because of how far down they are in the mattress build. This is just my opinion so if you keep the bed make sure you read the warranty carefully and keep it on file because you may need it in a couple of years.


I reviewed the content at the link you provided, www.paramountsleep.com/natures-spawww.paramountsleep.com/natures-spa . I read about the layers that you mentioned. Is it the type of layers or the order in which they are positioned that will lead durability / softening issues? Or is it the quality of one or more the layers that will cause issues? Sorry to bother, but just curious about what causes this mattress to have durability issues. Thanks.

The softer the foam, the less durability you get. Quilting foam is almost always very soft and the #1 source of body impressions. Poly foam or memory foam does not have the same durability as latex foam because it's usually much less dense.

Thank you for the additional information. I asked Paramount about the poly foam density of the mattress and they state it is 1.95. Is that density low enough to where it would cause problems in a couple of years? I'm not sure about the specifics on the quilting foam, but I could try to get more details from them if that makes a difference.

1.95 will be for the base foam and there is nothing wrong with that. It's the top layers that cause the issues.
