Airloom Mattress 24 Sep 2020 16:44 #1

Hello!!
I've tried almost every mattress out there. I'm now looking at an Airloom mattress. I can't get the specs for any of their mattresses. Any opinions on the longevity of an Aiirloom mattress? I know Macy's carry the brand, but they are hard to find. I would appreciate any opinion.

Thank you,
Jewels

Interesting fact about aireloom, they're one of the few mattresses to use slow response latex in the construction of some of thier models(ALSO Charles P Rogers, among a few others I can't remember) I tried aireloom at a macy's furniture gallery(forget which models, was a couple years ago) and they were pretty nice. I think overall they have good longevity prospects but if I remember correctly some of the models use memory foam or polyfoam in some layers which could be a weak link depending on the density. If i can find it in my records when i spoke to aireloom i can see where they source thier slow response latex from unless someone already knows.

Hello Mr. yabo,

I would really appreciate it if you could find some specs regarding the airloom mattresses. I have contacted the company, but they haven't replied and I don't think they will. I have found a number of BBB complaints that are all about longevity. They seem to last 3-4 years and then there may be issues. It's an expensive mattress, but at this point in my search, I would pay to have 3 years of comfortable sleep.

Thank you,

Jewels

I haven't been able to find details on the material densities of the foams used in Aireloom mattresses which makes me question their durability, since if they used high density materials it would be to their competitive advantage to advertise it. I have read some comments indicating that their most durable models are those which feature hand tufted construction, and not the models with more basic quilted tops which are most likely to develop body impressions. True hand tufting helps to minimize body impressions since the materials are significantly compressed in the process helping to improve durability.

Regards,

Hello and Thank You,

The Aireloom (I spelled it incorrectly in my other posts) mattress that I'm looking at is hand tufted. Here are the layers that I find questionable::
3.5 lb graphite visco which I believe means memory foam. 3.5 lbs for memory foam isn't good. Do you think that's what they mean by visco?
Convoluted foam is also listed as one of the top foam layers. Now this would not be good, unless it's a very dense foam correct?
Talalay latex is listed and I think that's good.
They also an organic cotton upholstery layer and micro coils.

I'm not sure what to do. I don't like the convoluted foam or the low density memory foam, but I'm so tired of searching for a quality mattress. Please let me know what you think of the small amount of information I was able to get.

Thank you,

Jewels

Visco is memory foam. Isn't it strange when a mattress company puts very high grade quality materials in with very low grade materials in the same mattress?

Hi Jewels,

It is difficult to make meaningful comments on durability or quality when a mattress manufacturer/retailer does not provide/disclose the components and layer specifications of their mattresses. While it can be an indicator for concern, it is one of many other variables to consider when mattress shopping; in addition to specification transparency, you can read more regarding TMU's research assessment of manufacturer transparency in the article, "Major Manufacturers - Top 20" .

You may want to perform a forum search on "Aireloom" if you’d like to read more of what consumer's questions and thoughts have been based on their experiences.

Thanks also to @SweetDreams for your comments and yes, Aireloom offers both hand-tufted/ hand-crafted mattresses as well as quilted top mattresses.

Hello Phoenix!

I haven't corresponded with you in quite a while. I really appreciate the information you've provided and I will go to the links you've provided. I wish all mattress companies would be forthcoming and make their specs public, but that is unlikely. I haven't had much luck in my search. I've found that he bed in a box mattresses that I have tried to be firm and often fail shortly after the trail period. It is even more difficult when I have a reaction to the glues and/or fire retardant used in some of the mattresses.

Thank you Sweet Dreams and Mr. yabo for all of the help you've provided. My search continues.

Thank you everyone,

Jewels

I've noticed that too... seems like the option to edit our posts disappeared with the website redesign. :unsure:
