Central Nebraska with no place to test mattress 01 Sep 2014 17:59 #1

I live in central Nebraska and there are no stores to test a latex mattress, so we are going to order online and hope we are doing the right thing...Decided on ordering from Flexus

I am medium build and height and have had back surgery, but I need to "sink in" and love softness especially with my shoulders.
Is this correct for me?
bottom layer-firm
middle layer-med
top layer-soft

Or should middle layer be soft also to allow for more sinking. I know the bottom layer needs to be firm for the support.
Thank you!

Hi Karen S.

You are certainly looking in a great direction and as you know I think very highly of Flexus and they compete well with the best in the industry in terms of their quality, value, service, and transparency.

When you can't test a mattress in person then the most effective approach is a more detailed conversation with the manufacturer who will know more about matching the options they have with different body types and sleeping styles than anyone else and can help "talk you through" the choices that would have the highest chance of success (see post #2 here ) but the layering you listed though would certainly be the most common choice for someone in your weight range based on "averages".
