Differences between an all latex mattress and a latex/polyfoam hybrid 23 Jun 2016 20:49 #1

Something I'm curious about... assuming BB had used dunlop latex for all of the support core instead of the polyfoam/dunlop combination they went with, how would that change the mattress? I'm talking in both durability and the way it feels when you lay on it. It seems that all latex mattresses are more expensive than latex/foam mattresses like this one; I assume that an all latex core would last longer, but not sure how the feel would change.

Hi worknman,

I switched your post to a new topic of its own with a different title because it was more of a general question about mattress design than about the BME.

The BME uses Talalay latex in the top layer and synthetic dunlop in the transition layer so I'm assuming that you are asking about what would happen if they replaced the polyfoam support core with a Dunlop latex support core of some type..

It's not really possible to answer your question specifically because it would depend on the blend of Dunlop that was used, and on the thickness and firmness of the Dunlop as well along with your body type and sleeping style and on how sensitive you are to differences in the deeper layers of a mattress.

Some people may not notice much difference at all while others would notice a significant difference but there is more about the general differences between an all latex mattress and a latex/poplyfoam hybrid in post #2 here .

Ah, okay. Was wondering what happened to that post :) lol

Anyway, thanks for the reply. I placed an order for the BME. If what you say about polyfoam densities is accurate, I'm in the low 200's, so I think the polyfoam core will be sufficient for me.

It would certainly be sufficient in terms of durability because there are no lower quality materials or weak links that would compromise the durability or useful life of the mattress relative to your (or any) weight range but of course all the materials and components in a mattress (including the cover and quilting materials) will affect the feel and performance of all the other layers and components both above and below it and the mattress "as a whole" so the only way to know for certain whether a mattress with a specific combination of layers and components will be a good choice for you in terms of "comfort" firmness, and PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and your own Personal preferences) and how well you will sleep on it will be based on your actual experience.

Having said that ... you certainly made a great quality/value choice ... and congratulations on your new mattress :)

I';m looking forward to your comments and feedback once you've received it and have had the chance to sleep on it for a bit.
