The Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex...Advice needed 06 Sep 2018 20:50 #11

Hi grey01.

Welcome to our Mattress Forum! :)

Thank you for the kind words, and I am happy that the information here is helpful to you.

Based upon your commentsI think you’re already on the right track and have a general idea of the types of components you need to look for in your new mattresses. Generally traditional innerspring mattresses are notorious for motion transfer issues for “light" or more sensitive sleepers. Two independent units using two twin extra long mattresses, on separate bed frames and separate foundations is certainly the best way to minimize motion transfer. I am not sure if you gave up totally on the idea of sleeping in the same bed or how motion sensitive you are but .. in case you are still considering a common bed ... If you’re placing two twin extra long bed sets upon the same frame, you’ll still have some motion transfer but not so much as with a side by side split (needed to accommodate for the difference in feel, BMI, and sleeping positions between partners). Pocket coils are generally good for motion isolation, unlike innersprings that are linked with helicals which are generally poor to fair depending on the specifics of the innerspring and the foam layers above it. Motion transfer easy to test for and it may be worth trying a latex/ or memory foam pocket coils unit or all latex with a side by side dual configuration that would have better motion isolation, Latex is among the least motion transferring of materials second only to memory foam.

Either way, I would certainly suggest to you to rely on the advice of the manufacturer themselves as they are much more familiar with their own mattress designs and materials than anyone else (including me) and they can use the information you provide them about your body type and sleeping positions, your preferences, your history on different mattresses, and the results of your local testing to make suggestions based on the "averages" of other customers that may be similar to you. Before the showroom visit I’d make sure to revisit the tutorial post here which has all the basic information, steps, and guidelines you will need to make the best possible choices ... and know how and why to avoid the worst ones which would include the major brands or any mattress where you aren't able to find out the quality of the materials inside it. With a local purchase for the majority of people ... careful testing using the guidelines in the tutorial linked above rather than just testing for the more subjective "comfort" of a mattress (which often won't predict how well you will sleep on a mattress or how it will "feel" when you sleep on it at home) and some good guidance from a knowledgeable and experienced retailer or manufacturer will usually result in a mattress choice that is well inside a suitable comfort/support range and will generally be "close enough" so that if any fine-tuning is necessary it would be relatively minor and involve different mattress pads, sheets, mattress protectors, or perhaps even a topper if a mattress is too firm (see post #4 here and post #10 here ).

Some good local testing will also give you a much better sense of the many different types of materials and components that are used in mattresses and some reference points about the types of mattresses (see this article ) and general firmness levels you tend to prefer which can help you narrow down your choices regardless of whether you end up purchasing locally or online.

Also, we have a metal frame. Would you recommend to buy a special foundation or existing metal frame is fine?


Because warranty requirements can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, I always suggest checking with the manufacturer of the mattress you are considering to make sure that the metal frame you own meets their warranty criteria (or read the warranty)

We have a Palo Alto Nest Bedding store not far from us. It's kept in high regard on this site and we are planning to visit it this weekend. Are there any other good mattress stores in South Bay?


I am glad that you are visiting Nest Bedding which is one of the manufacturing Trusted Members of this site Like all the memberr of our site they are very knowledgeable and skilled in guiding their customers to make the best possible choices out of the many options they have available.
Also you have some other equally valuable trusted members that are less than one hour driving distance from Palo Alto and South Bay :
Bay Bed & Mattress Santa Cruz, CA
Flexus Comfort in Covina CA
Foam Sweet Foam in Fullerton, CA
Like all the members here I think very highly of and consider them to compete well with "the best" in the industry.

I’ll look forward to learning about your progress and of course any other questions you might have.

Hi Phoenix,
Thank you very much for your advice and suggestions! I found so much information on the site not only about mattresses but also other components of the “Sleep” system such as pillows, mattress covers and sheets! (That’s the reason for a delayed reply: I start reading one link and then jump to another and so on :) ).
We will visit the Palo Alto Nest Bedding store over the weekend and Bay Bed & Mattress Santa Cruz and will provide the update.

Update.
We twice visited the store. It’s really nice and it’s in the downtown Palo Alto which is always great to visit. We selected two “Hybrid Natural Latex – Medium” for both of us. We also added “Breather Side Sleeper” pillow, “Cooling Mattress Protector” and selected “White Glove service” for $ 150.00 . I have been sleeping on the pillow and really like it.

Unfortunately, we haven’t had a very good experience since. They say 2-3 days for Production and 1-5 days for delivery. There has been two weeks since we placed the order. Nobody can provide me the status of when item will arrive. I sent an email to customer service and they told me to contact the local store. When I asked for a tracking number, the email was not answered.
One day when I came home, I found a large heavy box outside of the garage door. When I called the next day to ask when the “White glove” team arrive, I was told that one mattress was not included in the box and they were waiting for it. Called them again today. The sales person said that he would contact his logistics team and come back to me about when the second mattress will arrive.

I work for a company. We would always provide the tracking number or expected arrival date. Sometimes, things happen and we run out of inventory. We will proactively send regular updates on when we think we can deliver the product. It didn’t happen with Nest. That's not what we expected from "White Glove" service. I am kinda disappointed so far. Hopefully, if and when the mattress gets set up it would be a better experience.

Hi it’s Joe the ceo. Sorry for any issues, text me at xxx-xxx-xxxx with your name and order number will get to the bottom of it. Just an aside, if you ordered the latex bed that’s 5-7 business days, the 1-2 are the foam or coil beds. Thanks! And just an aside: with white glove we don’t send tracking as I’m sure you’d understand.

Glad we were able to connect and get things back on track. Sorry you felt we weren’t being responsive we strive to give great service. We really make every attempt to set the expectation that the latex product takes 4-8 days production time. There is a bit more moving parts and attention that goes into that product. Our our FAQ page we do set that expectation but I can see where someone would confuse that with our foam products that ship quicker so I’ll try to make that more clear on the site. Thanks again for your business! Joe

I'm looking for advice myself....
Are you aware that Nest Bedding has changed the design of the latex hybrid 3 months ago. Instead of wool there is now a layer of polyfoam under the cotton cover. Used to be wool like the organic version of the bed. From what I understand this is most likely a cost cutting measure and the idea of foam between you and the latex is kind of odd in a "natural" bed.
Just wondering if anyone else is aware of this. I tried the latex hybrid from Nest and liked it. I am just wondering if they are cost cutting at the expense of the quality of materials used in the bed.
