4 Weeks into an 100% natural latex bed from mattresses.net 03 May 2016 19:50 #1

I've waited to post about our new bed until we've had it awhile. I made the decision to go with mattresses.net because they were the best price overall and I kind of appreciated their no nonsense approach. I'm a bit embarrassed to say that even though I did much research here at mattress underground, my husband and i tried only 2 latex beds here in town and they were both too firm. We tried no other beds. Beyond that, my husband did not participate in this endeavor at all -- So to say I was a bit nervous was an understatement. I was ordering a $2,000 item that we were unable to test first. We are starting week 5 sleeping on our new bed.

I knew that we both like a soft bed, so I ended up with 6" soft dunlop on my side and 6" medium dunlop on his side. I choose the thicker 3 inch soft talalay topper which was more expensive than the 2 inch. For reference, i am just under 5'9 130 lbs. And my husband is 6'3 225 lbs. We are in our late 50s. We also needed the foundation and I went with the wood one.

It took almost exactly 4 weeks to receive the bed, which I was told up front. Set up wasn't that difficult.

I knew there would be an adjustment time for body alignment. Our old bed had major dips in it and we had been sleeping like that for YEARS . I think I am still getting used to it. That said we both really really like it. Do I love it? Not sure. I think of all the things I could of spent 2 grand on........ It might be a teeny bit hard for my shoulders, however, I don't toss and turn nearly as much. In fact, i stay in one position much much longer. I'm sleeping harder and I'm not waking up as much. My husband feels the same. No complaints from him--- well maybe the cost.

Based on your feedback it sounds like you are sleeping well on your mattress and it seems to be a good match for you in terms of the two most important "P's" in PPP (Posture and alignment and Pressure relief) and since latex is very new for you and it's the first time you have slept on a latex mattress then once you have slept on it for a little longer it's very likely that you will get more used to the "feel" of the latex (which is different from what you were used to sleeping on) and the third P (Personal preferences) will fall into place as well.

I'm looking forward to any additional comments and feedback you have the chance to share over time.
