3"-3"-2" dunlop latex OR 3 layers of 3" 12 Oct 2014 16:28 #1

I think I have finally found the right mattress after returning 2 inner-spring mattresses (at a 15% restocking). I plan to purchase a Dunlop Latex with hopes of finally getting a good nights sleep (free of back pain). Going from bottom to top I want 3" firm, 3" firm, 3" medium. I have been searching for the best place to buy and am finding quite a savings if the top layer is only 2". Will it make a big difference?

Hi Katjop,

I think I have finally found the right mattress after returning 2 inner-spring mattresses (at a 15% restocking). I plan to purchase a Dunlop Latex with hopes of finally getting a good nights sleep (free of back pain). Going from bottom to top I want 3" firm, 3" firm, 3" medium. I have been searching for the best place to buy and am finding quite a savings if the top layer is only 2". Will it make a big difference?


There is more about the different ways that one mattress can "match" another one in post #9 here .

Every layer will have some effect on every other layer and the feel and performance of the mattress as a whole and even with the exact same type and blend of latex in the same firmness levels and the same cover a different thickness in the top layer would make a noticeable difference for most people yes.

I would also be aware that any differences between the type and blend of the latex, or in the firmness levels, or in the type of cover or quilting can also make a noticeable difference as well and different manufacturers may use a different ILD or density of latex for different "word" firmness ratings that may not match the ILD or density of the firmness ratings of a different manufacturer.

The tutorial post also includes a link to the members here that sell online (in the optional online step) and many of them make latex mattresses that use different types of latex and have a range of different designs, options, covers, return or exchange policies, and price ranges.

3"-3"-2" dunlop latex OR 3 layers of 3" 12 Oct 2014 17:50 #3

Thanks for your quick reply! I am hoping to purchase something tomorrow. The mattress I tried and felt was a good match for my stomach sleeping 160# was the SavvyRest Serenity Medium Firm Firm (top to bottom). Savvy Rest did not share their ILD but their range leads me to believe it's similar to Sleep EZ. I am considering getting the SleepEZ Natural Latex Mattress 10,000. All my research suggests they are quite similar. I hope I am not overlooking something.

Hi Katjop,

If you know the type of latex that was in the Savvy Rest you tried (Dunlop or Talalay) then Shawn at SleepEZ is very familiar with them and would be able to give you good guidance about the options they have that would be closest when you talk with them to make your firmness choices.

There are many other forum members that have purchased a SleepEZ mattress that was very similar to a Savvy Rest that they tested and are very happy with the choice they made.
