normal Narrowed down to Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex....extra questions?

Thanks Sensei! That was my conclusion as well.

They did not reply to my question about it, nor my inquiry as to where one finds a good quality platform base since they don't sell one.

I'm reluctant to put plywood underneath the mattress as it seems too rough, and because I've heard it can harbor little bugs.

For now, I've ordered a stout slatted base from KD Frames (the Nomad Plus) for either keeping the Zenhaven, trying the Nest Hybrid Latex (@gryffin, I so want to ask how you like it, but it's only been one night!), or getting a different zip in latex layer kit system.

I've been looking at the specs of the new Nest hybrid latex mattress . Even though it uses high quality materials, isn't six total inches of foam about the springs a bit excessive?

Not in our experience, Toddler. We've have the Hybrid Natural Latex for over three months now, and love the overall feel, comfort, and support of this mattress. We tried the previous version (1" cotton/wool top, 3" Talalay latex, 8" coils, & 1" foam base), and never could get comfortable in that configuration. Now, with 6" foam, 6" coils, & 1" foam base, we've had wonderful sleep...with no pain.

Also, the layers interact really nicely with each other, so that we get contouring comfort where we need it (shoulders/hips), yet plenty of support where we need it (backs). This new design has also alleviated the issue of too much pressure build-up or feeling like we're hitting a wall when we get to the latex layer. It's a really well thought-out configuration, and has made a huge difference for us. We highly recommend it.

Happy to answer any other question you may have about this mattress.

Hey sweetandsourkiwi,

I agree on the plywood and KD frames / Nomad, very familiar with them. Good products, good company.

Beware about reading too much about harboring "little bugs"...it can get kind of gross, most people prefer blissful ignorance.....and I am certainly not saying what is right or wrong.

Talk soon, or really message soon is what I mean. Thanks again.

Thanks,
Sensei

Great! It arrived today. I will report that it is too heavy for me to do more than carefully scoot it 4 feet inside to await help. :)

I might varnish or stain it...bugs gross me out and I assume that will help protect the unfinished wood.

The jury is still out. We got the Medium firmness- my husband is very comfortable so far, but my lower back is getting sore- which is what usually happens to me when a bed is too soft. However, it seems to be getting a little better each night, so I may need to finish up the "transition period" before deciding if I need to swap for the firmer latex layer. One of the key selling points for me about this mattress was the ability to do this swap if needed.

Hi gryffin - it might help to give the mattress a little time to break in. I, too, encountered a similar lower-back pain soreness with the Medium mattress for a week or two. And I, too, typically get that kind of soreness from mattresses that are too soft.

However, in this case, it seems that the mattress may have been a little firm initially, and my lower back was being pushed up...which contributed to the soreness/stiffness.

Either way, after about a week or two, my lower-back pain went away - and it's been fine now for going on two months now. However, should your lower-back pain not dissipate after a couple of weeks, it might make sense then to swap out the latex layer for something firmer.

Hope that helps....

Thank you for the update, Gryffin! Sorry it's been painful. :/ I saw you mentioned you were sleeping on a pretty firm bed before at only 155lbs, so that could be a pretty big adjustment. How you do like the bed otherwise?

Sensei, I heard from Zenhaven today, they said the floor is an acceptable base and won't void the warranty. I am still looking for something to put on my slatted bed base though, as I don't really want to put the ZH on the floor at any time.

It looks like the photos have changed online...now the bed shows a different quilting? I have reached out to ask what else is different.

Gryffin, did you make it through the transition? Where did you land?
