Hi jctam,

Your least expensive option will probably be purchasing raw latex layers without a covering (hopefully being able to use your existing covering instead). If going with latex, I think you will be out of luck with the budget that you have set. A true high resiliency poly foam (2.5 lb density and minimum 2.4 compression modulus) should be more affordable, followed by 2 lb and 1.8 lb polyfoam.

You could buy 3 " Dunlop latex topper from Foam Factory for $233, or 2" for $162. No case. But it's a firm 29 ILD latex, so might not work for you. Find out exactly what foam you have in the current topper, and consider just buying a similar foam, especially if there are clear depressions in that topper. But make sure your coil mattress isn't sagging, they often do. You could also consider 3 or 4 inches of a memory foam topper, which could soften the bed, but might be warm.

Hi androiddd,

Thanks for your reply to jctam!

Regarding your advice for Foam By Mail, I’m going to include a similar comment to what I made in your other thread…if considering Foam Factory (aka Foambymail or FBM and other names as well) you may want to read this post and this post and this topic (about their polyfoam and sources) and this post (presumably from a past employee)for some commentary and information about them, and sources of their foam products.
