I'm Baaaack! Naturepedic EOS Classic or Pillowtop vs Vispring Coronet 10 Sep 2020 18:24 #31

Marshmallowforme wrote: If you are tall be aware that Naturepedic does not make 80" twinXL mattresses. The first one they sent was 75" (twin size but labeled as a twinXL). They then replaced it but with 77"-78" mattresses. At this point I gave up as juggling mattresses for donation and unpacking new ones is not easy. But it is a nightly frustration to me because I have to accomodate the short length by sleeping diagonal on the bed. We also attached the headboard to the wall and have pulled the bed frames away from the headboard so the pillow can overlap at the head and give us some more foot room. But this means my shoulder is on the perimeter coils which are stiffer. Luckily the two layers of microcoils pretty much obscures this fact. However my pillow and head are often just off the edge of the bed.

If they sold a fullXL I would upgrade to that to try and get a proper length mattress of 80". But since they don't my only option is two queen beds and we don't have room for that in our bedroom.


Thanks for all that great info Marshmallowforme! I am 6ft. tall 230lb so when it arrives we'll see if I'm sent the correct size and even if they do if I can be comfortable on 77-78" lenght. I do have other mattress covers and support coils I can use if it is short so i do have some options in case it's too short for me.

FYI, the Organic Mattress store where we'll be buying our mattress is trying to arrange for us to come in after hours so that we don't end up dominating their limited options, keeping other customers from trying the EOS mattresses. My wife wants to have the Pillowtop arranged with soft/firm/firm on one side, and medium/firm/firm on the other so she can switch back and forth quickly. I simply want to try the soft/medium/firm again. They may have to get another firm comfort layer in order to do so. So, we're waiting to hear from them to get the logistics worked out.

I do want to stress again, regarding our experience with the microcoils, that if anyone is concerned with vibration (the way pocketed coils tend to absorb it), the microcoils are not the way to go.

AnalogJ,
Do you think the vibration issue was because you had the microcoils under a layer of latex? I never tried it that way so don't have any experience with what you experienced. The microcoils as the top layer only (Classic) or two layers of microcoils (Pillowtop) to me did not have any vibration problem.

We also tried microcoils on top as well. I don't believe they're pocketed, so they don't absorb lateral movement the way latex does or good pocketed coils do. In addition to being much less stable (wiggly and jiggly, both the soft and medium), we could feel each other's movements when we were lying on the same bed.

I agree AnalogJ, if I didn't haven't my own twin xl on adjustable base and my GF didn't have her own twin xl on adjustable base then I would not even consider microcoils. That's what I love the best about having a split king is motion isolation is no longer an issue and opens me up to a wider range of mattresses.

Marshmallowforme or anyone else, did you ever inquire with Naturepedic about the "For blended latex/microcoil configurations, please contact us." listed at the bottom of the EOS classic page? I have contacted them about it today but I dont think they respond on weekends, so unless someone on the forum knows i guess ill get the answer tomorrow. My order has not shipped yet but am told it will tomorrow. Since the mattress is 12" thick(including) the 1" quilting in the cover and the coils are 8" we are left with 3" of comfort layer. I'm assuming they take the 1.5" of microcoil from the chorus mattress and the 2" of latex from the serenade and allow you to stack that in the mattress together on top of the 8" support coils and that's how you get your "blended configuration". I know this would = 12.5" total but I don't think the extra 0.5" would make a difference fitting in to the cover.

I didn't ask about it but I had assumed it was a layer of latex and a layer of microcoil in the pillowtop configuration. Or in the classic it was one half the bed with the latex and the other half with microcoil.

My microcoils arrived today from naturepedic. I love how cool they sleep/ the bouncy supportive yet soft feel. Only problem is I am overarching my lower back when I'm on my stomach. Great in all other positions(im a combo sleeper). I put a mattress helper mini underneath the center 1/3 of the bed and that solved the overarching problem. I just don't know if I want to use that under my bed. I don't mind having to buy a new one(mattress helper) every year or even twice a year as it is polyfoam and won't hold up long term. They're not expensive but I never had a brand new bed where I had to do something like that.

Mr. Yabo, What did you end up ordering? Classic with firm coils and medium microcoils?

I ordered the EOS classic with firm coils and medium microcoils. I also have a different wool quilted zippered 15" cover( and other non quilted zipper covers) so i can essentially try the pillowtop version as well. I also ordered an extra set of medium microcoils (that's what arrived yesterday) and a set of extra firm support coils. So far I have only received that extra set of medium microcoils but I received notification that the rest has shipped.
