3 x 3 or 3 x 4 latex layers 08 Sep 2014 05:09 #1

I've been spending many hours on the site trying to figure out what mattress to purchase. By the way thank you Phoenix, your and your members knowledge has taught me a lot. Who knew there was such much too know about all the variables that can effect the way the mattress performs. We have decided to go with a 100% all natural talalay mattress, however I am trying to figure out if 4 layers are better than 3. I'm 5'9 158lbs and my wife is 5'3 130lbs. Will the 4 layers last longer as far as maintaining their original properties,would this be too much support or would 3 layers be just as durable? Thanks for anyone's input.

Hi Robalo247,

I am trying to figure out if 4 layers are better than 3. I'm 5'9 158lbs and my wife is 5'3 130lbs. Will the 4 layers last longer as far as maintaining their original properties,would this be too much support or would 3 layers be just as durable? Thanks for anyone's input.


You are certainly not in a weight range where you would "need" 4 layers but you may still prefer it. There is more about the effect of thickness (either in a layer or in a mattress) in post #14 here . There would be no difference in terms of durability.

The best approach to choose the design of the mattress and the firmness of the layers for a mattress that you can't test in person would be a more detailed conversation with the online retailer or manufacturer of the mattress you are considering so they can help help "talk you through" your firmness choices and the options that would have the best chance of success for you based on averages for your body type and sleeping positions (see mattress firmness/comfort levels in post #2 here ).
