latex mattress topper is really good for sleeping. I think another disadvantage of the latex smell should be considered as not all people like this smell.

Hi jordanzhb.

Welcome to our Mattress Forum! :)

TMU’s experience (and that of its extensive consumer members) with latex products (mattresses, toppers, and pillows) is that the on the occasions where there is a remnant odor from the latex production process, it will dissipate over time.

There is more about the smell of latex in post #2 here but in most cases, it is reduced to levels below what people will notice in a few days to a few weeks but this can also depend on how acute your sense of smell is and on how sensitive you are to a particular smell. There can also be some differences between different batches of Talalay. There is also more about the odor of new materials in post #3 here that may be helpful.

NOTE Added: I have noticed a second promotional post which I have deleted and removed promo link from the post above.

I would like to purchase a good quality organic or natural latex bed with a good quality and reliable adjustable bed frame. We will do the king or Calif. king split configuration so we can each have our own custom mattr3ess. However, I don't know what mattress thickness to choose for the adjustable frame and I don't know how to choose the firmness layer configuration.

I am 5'5" 145 lbs, evenly distributed (possibly bigger in the shoulders than hips). Back or side sleeper.

My husband is 5'8" and 175 lbs, evenly distributed stomach sleeper but will flip to his side occasionally.

What mattress, mattress thickness and what layer sequence of the firmness do you recommend for each side of the bed with the adjustable base.

For the adjustable base, I know I want a zero gravity button and the ability to raise my legs only. Something quiet and definitely a wall-hugger. Is lumber support important? Any recommendations on a adjustable base to go with the recommended mattress??

Hey jenninsb,

I just wanted to also apologize for the late reply, and I see you also mentioned the back surgeries, etc. So I think you are on the right track with the mattress member you are pursuing, they are very very well versed in latex mattresses. Thanks again for posting.

My wife and I have been sleeping on a Sealy Springfree Gardenvine (plush) for 12 years ... which is about 4 years too long for this mattress. The foam top is done and we are too.

Thinking about going all latex with something like the SleepEZ option, but having trouble figuring out how to select the best layers.

Leaning toward the 13" option to allow for four layers.

My understanding is that our current mattress is Dunlop latex with a 3" polyfoam layer.

My wife and I are both average size and side sleepers.

I'm thinking 2 layers of x-firm or firm Dunlop at the bottom, but I'm torn on the top two layers. I know I want talalay on the top in either soft or medium ... What should I use for the second layer down? Is it best to use a firmer talalay there or a softer Dunlop?

Hello schaynes09,

Even though you didn't post this in the Sleep EZ / Ask the Experts section I'd be happy to provide some advice if that's OK with you. if the two of you are under 180 pounds then soft Talalay for the top layer and medium Dunlop for the second layer would be the most common choice. Please keep in mind that, if either of you try this setup and find that it's too soft or too firm, or you're getting back pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, or any discomfort really, you can adjust the mattress right in your home to get it dialed in for your specific needs and preference. Please also note that we use our 43 years of experience to make very accurate recommendations for our customers, so there is an outstanding chance that the above recommendation works perfectly for the two of you.
