Latex mattress hunt

16 Mar 2019 17:29 #11 by sweetandsourkiwi
I was able to test out Posh & Lavish beds today, which was really helpful! I really enjoyed the crazy stretchy cover. Honestly, I probably wouldn't buy a P&L, but I am trying to use the materials to inform my decision making.

However, I can't find ilds or spec's anywhere. The sales guy says the spring model I tried uses Quantum Elite zoned coils with the less-firm coils in the middle. (For me this felt backwards from what I'm used to—reverse zoning in the Zenhaven—and I only liked it when I lay directly on the spring model with no topper. With the topper I felt too unsupported even though I asked him to take a picture and looked pretty aligned.)

I was able to try The Premier Latex Hybrid and the Relax, both with and without 2" and 3" toppers. I am curious if there is more to the toppers (I think they are just a chunk of 19 ild talalay) and if the Relax is just a single 6" dunlop core or two layers of 3". I used to think it was crazy anyone could sleep on just one core while DIYing and now I totally get it—it's actually kinda nice!

Overall the beds reminded me of what I *think* Luma would be like...seemed like similar arrangements (innersprings with just a touch of latex and then a topper, or all latex beds with a topper configuration).

Wondering if anyone has specs/ILDs for this or if it's kept very tightly wrapped up? It would really help me bring my research to real life.

Hi sweetandsourkiwi,

Oh yes, Posh and Lavish, that's great you were able to find some to see in the retail showroom. Here is a post about Posh+..but does not have the exact specifications - Phoenix post#2

P+L has definitely made a concerted effort to "Not" publish specifications, as I am sure they believe it is best for the P&L retail partners. In 2016, most information I saw showed the toppers and top layers were Talalay latex and the cores in the "all-latex" mattresses had a 6" Dunlop process core. When Kurt Ling and Talalay Global created the Pure LatexBliss it was all Talalay (cores and toppers), then Kurt started his own brand ...P+L. The line was always 6" core, not two 3" pieces, Luma believes in this base construction for all latex also.

Talalay 19ILD is probably a good guess on the toppers, the original toppers for PLB were 14 and 19 ILD. Regarding your comment about Luma Sleep hybrid mattress, one of our trusted members , seems to be very similar...of course please discuss with Luma as every mattress is different....but you have enough knowledge in latex to be able to to make educated choices. If I see the specs somewhere else, I will update the forum.
