DR, I am very happy to read your review of the Obasan. I too am worried about the price and keep wondering if we can find something less expensive somewhere. I am also in Canada (GTA). The price is my only concern, and the fact that the base is $1000 on top.

Hi workitoutgirrl.

There is a list of Canadian manufacturers/retailer listed by MFC in post #56 here that you may wish to look at that seem to better fit your budget criteria.
Some other options that you may wish to consider of the Trusted members of this site (in alphabetical order) which means that I think very highly of them and that I believe that they compete well with the best in the industry in terms of their quality, value, service, knowledge, and transparency. They are extremely knowledgeable about latex and different configurations, and I would not hesitate to recommend them for your consideration,

You may also wish to check out the Balancer - Das Original that was brought up a few times recently on our site.

I'm looking forward to finding out what you end up deciding ... and of course any additional comments or questions you may have along the way that I or any of the Expert members of the site can help with.

Thanks. i appreciate that. I was able to find a comparable match to the Obasan I was considering. I know they are basically the same company. Is there something differentiates the 2 from eachother? I am so torn, because if I go with the Dormio, I may need to also buy a latex topper for comfort, which will essentially bring the cost to the same as the Obasan. Getting to one of the stores is difficult, and my partner told me "just pick one, already" haha. Not in those words, but he said to pick the one we "need", which is so difficult. Soon, we will be able to sleep together again ;)

Hi workitoutgirrl,

We have 3 models of organic latex mattresses on our website. However if you found a model from another manufacturer, chances are we can make it for you. Simply contact us with the model name and any other information you have (such as the thickness and the ILD of each latex layer) and we will be happy to give you a quote.

Good luck in your search

From what I gathered, the difference between the Obasan and some of the other organic latex mattresses is that the Obasan offers zoning (different density for head, back, and feet).

I purchased the CozyPure LaNoodle topper for one of my other latex beds (not the Obasan, which was comfortable enough). It is very therapeutic as a topper and a little less money than buying a fully latex 2" or 3" layer for comfort. The noodles move around a bit (there are other posts on this site about it), but the comfort is worth the maintenance in my thinking. I believe CozyPure runs Thanksgiving sales (I bought mine on sale in the fall), and they also ship to Canada if I remember correctly. This is an option if you buy a Sleeptek or Dormio and ending up wanting a bit more plushness.

I also want to add in here that we ended up liking our SavvyRest latex bed, too (it's in another residence), but it did take me a lot of layer exchanges to figure out how to configure the three latex layers. This was a bit arduous and not good for my back (all the moving around of the awkward and heavy layers). I slept on it last week while we were at our other residence and it's great--especially with the CozyPure LaNoodle topper I bought for it.

The one advantage of Obasan is that, after gathering information about your weight, height, age, and sleeping position, they configure the mattress for you. They also do a complimentary layer exchange in case it's not quite right.

Hi DR,

Thank you for your suggestions(s) and for sharing your experiences and thoughts, I am glad Cozy Pure’s LaNoodle topper is working so well for you. It seems to be a favorite for many people that try it. As you know CozyPure is a member of our site and over time I had many conversations with Cheryl (owner) so I know firsthand of the care and attention they pay to each aspect of the design and detail that goes into manufacturing any of their products.

You certainly made a good value/quality choice. :)
