Difference between Talalay and Dunlop for high BMI 11 Jun 2018 10:39 #1

Could you give me a general idea of what the difference in the feel of an all natural medium Talalay 3 inch topper would be compared to an all natural 3 inch soft Dunlop topper.

I was recommended one by one place and the other by another place.

I am 220, 5’ 8, with sore shoulders and hips, and lower back problems.

Thank you in advance.

P.s. I’m often a side sleeper, and sometimes a back sleeper. Never a stomach sleeper. Thanks.

Hello SnoozyDoodle,

Unfortunately it's hard to give really accurate answers for these beyond basic general comparisons between Talalay and Dunlop as we don't know the details of these toppers. Even the fabric can change the feel of a topper, and these are products being sold by other retailers.

Generally speaking though, Talalay will have a more buoyant and responsive feel than Dunlop. And if the firmness of the two toppers is comparable in terms of ILD/IFD the Talalay will still offer superior pressure relief, and potentially support. I think it is a superior material to use for a topper, most people do find it to be more comfortable on sore hips/shoulders which is a very common issue for side sleepers.

I hope you find this to be helpful.
