I have another question this time regarding the Novosbed firm. The mattress layers and densities are:

Firm:

2" - 2.5lb / 22 IFD - 5th generation open-cell pneumatic memory foam

1" - 2.5lb / 22 IFD - 5th generation open-cell pneumatic memory foam

1" - 4 lb / 11 IFD - 5th-Generation high-density visco-elastic memory foam

7" - 1.75 lb / 38 IFD - Premium support foam

Am I missing something or are the two top layers significantly under the recommended foam density for durability for average and heavy BMIs?

I know Novosbed is a trusted member on this site so I'm curious why that is if they offer this particular model of mattress that uses low quality foam densities.

Hi Caesar,

You are correct the 3" of 2.5lb memory foam is lower than our durability guidelines. So we at TMU would be cautious about the long term durability of these memory foam components, assuming all you quoted information is correct.

Here's the thing, I have felt many samples over the years of some great 2.5 and 3.0lb memory foam, and I know some of these mfgrs. make these beds and they feel great to a lot of people, but long term durability is sometimes sacrificed when trying to hit a certain cost and feel. It's not a bad bed, but for high BMI's TMU advises caution.

Novosbed is not listed as one of our trusted members.

Thanks,
Sensei
