Hi Paul,

I don't suppose you have any updates?

I am looking at the 3 models of foam/latex hybrids and am close to buying one. I cannot decide which one I like the most and am overthinking it. The lowest-priced model has 2" of foam on top of latex and is 10" overall, and it is intriguing. Very supportive and yet still soft.

My experience at the store has been positive. It is not beyond sales techniques, but it does seem a cut above the average mattress store. The store would not tell me the density of the foam, but I am going to ask for Sean and check in.

I am a little worried about it sleeping hot, but know this is a problem with memory foam. Their all latex-mattresses feel nice and I like the snappiness of the material, but I actually prefer the memory foam feel quite a bit.

They do not offer returns, but give you a year to decide whether you like the mattress or not. If you want to change your mind, you can return the mattress for credit minus a $170 restocking/disposal/etc fee, which isn't terrible considering it is a full year.

I like the store, but hoping the "natural" or "organic" materials are not increasing the price too substantially - either in terms of actual cost or in luxury cost of what people would pay for such a label. Just because frankly I think the synthetic high-quality materials are probably no worse health-wise.

Hi sunyata,

I'm sorry, but paulfranco89 never posted back with another update (I looked in other threads on the forum for you), but hopefully he'll see your comment and can offer his one-year follow-up.

Just wanted to say I purchased the 10" Memory-foam-Latex mattress. The experience was positive. There is a decent amount of sales, but I do believe that I got a quality mattress (assuming the 5lb memory foam is correct as previously stated on this forum) at a fair price, and I am hoping this mattress lasts for awhile.

After trying for 3 days at the store, this "Cherry Creek" model (the thinnest and least experience of the foam/latex hybrids) offers the great combination of softness and support I was looking for, truly a "comfort firm" or whatever they call it. I was surprised at how soft it was given how supportive it felt. I didn't find anything that similar at any other store I went to.

I receive the mattress in 2 weeks and will keep this forum updated as to how the experience goes.

Hi sunyata,

Congratulations on your new mattress purchase! :cheer: The combination of the higher density memory foam and the latex support core are good quality materials. I’ll look forward to your future updates once you’ve had a chance to sleep upon the mattress for a while.

Mattress arrived. It is about an inch shorter each direction than my previous queen mattress, at least according to the manufacturer measurement attached to the mattress (it says 59 x79). I will measure myself at some point and confirm this is the measurement. But I guess there is no official measurement for a queen mattress and this mattress is probably the way it is supposed to be.

The tag says "all new material" which is 80% Visco Memory Foam and 20% urethane foam. I get paranoid about stuff, and am slightly afraid that I got delivered a pure memory foam mattress rather than one with a latex base (since this doesn't mention latex) as I don't feel the latex base the way I did in the store. Would you have any tips on a way I can confirm? I called store and they are looking into it - when I described the tag they said "something didn't sound right."

Mattress does not seem substantially firmer as I expected it would. Feels broken in, soft but supportive, like I felt in the store. Will update after a few weeks.

Hi sunyata,

Mattress arrived. It is about an inch shorter each direction than my previous queen mattress, at least according to the manufacturer measurement attached to the mattress (it says 59 x79). I will measure myself at some point and confirm this is the measurement. But I guess there is no official measurement for a queen mattress and this mattress is probably the way it is supposed to be.


The ISPA (International Sleep Products Association) standard sizing for mattresses are as follows:

Size Dimensions
Twin 38 x 74½
Twin Extra Long 38 x 79½
Full 53 x 74½
Full Extra Long 53 x 79½
Queen 60 x 79½
Eastern King 76 x 79½
California King 72 x 83½

Even though these are the "standard" sizes for ISPA ... there can still be some variation between the "standard" sizing made by different manufacturers in the industry. With soft goods like mattresses there can also be variations between different mattresses as well (normally in the range of a +/- 1" variation from their standard sizing) depending on the dimensions of the materials when they are cut (there can be some variance with cutting flexible materials) and the components they use in their mattresses and on the thickness of the cover that encloses them (a cover that is 1/2" thicker or thinner for example would change the length and width of the mattress by 1").

The tag says "all new material" which is 80% Visco Memory Foam and 20% urethane foam. I get paranoid about stuff, and am slightly afraid that I got delivered a pure memory foam mattress rather than one with a latex base (since this doesn't mention latex) as I don't feel the latex base the way I did in the store. Would you have any tips on a way I can confirm? I called store and they are looking into it - when I described the tag they said "something didn't sound right."


You’d definitely want to confirm that you have the correct mattress. The materials are represented by weight percentage, and the law tag on this product seems to represent a memory foam mattress that has a polyfoam core (not latex). It is possible the incorrect law tag was accidentally sewn into the cover for your mattress. The specs on the web site state that the support core of the mattress is latex, with 2” of memory foam. I’m not sure if there are other materials in the product in the current line up, but the lack of latex being mentioned on the law tag would be a concern to me. I would contact the store again and see if they can find out the reason for this omission or error, just to confirm you have what you are supposed to have.

Thanks Phoenix.

I was going to edit/delete parts of my last post, as my experience with SleepNation has been very positive and things like this happen, but since you already replied I will leave it as is.

I am happy that I called them. I am a very detail oriented person who always checks and double checks everything. In this case, the problem was an incorrect lawtag. Sean, who I believe you have talked to, came by my place as quickly as he could and confirmed the mattress was made correctly. Literally, within two hours of calling the store he arrived. I saw the latex core with the two inches of memory foam on top, and am very happy with how the mattress feels and how the process has gone.

As far as the size of the mattress goes, I am not concerned with it. I believe my previous bed was pretty much the same. The bed looks and feels great. It felt a little softer than I expected when I press into it with my hand, but feels the same as it did in the store when I lie down. Very supportive and yet soft.

It was nice to deal with a store that knows their mattresses and can respond to issues like this quickly.

Hi sunyata,

Thank you for your reply and information about your mattress. I am happy that it was something as simple as an incorrect law tag. Luckily, it is easy for someone knowledgeable to determine if the product is indeed made with the appropriate componentry, and I am glad that Sleep Nation did this for you so quickly. I am guessing that they were just as curious as you were!

The componentry used in your mattress is very point elastic, so pressing down into the memory foam will feel quite soft, but when you lie down upon the mattress and your weight is distributed over a wider area, it should feel quite supportive.

I'm glad the news for you was positive.
