Looking for a new mattress (again) and could use some recommendations. SleepEZ? 22 Jul 2021 07:29 #1

Hi everyone!

I've been lurking on here for awhile now and finally decided to create a profile. Like the title says, I am on the hunt for a new mattress again. I had been sleeping on a Simmons hard mattress for as long as I can remember so it is probably pretty soft now. I did some research on reddit initially and thought the Bear Hybrid would be perfect for me. It turns out I hate it more than sleeping on the floor (which I have been doing until they can come pick this thing up). The memory foam/the sheets it came with are incredibly hot and I hate the sinking feeling. It is like a bag of mashed potatoes. I am 6' 4" 185-190lb mostly side sleeper, but I occasionally sleep on my stomach or back and I sleep pretty hot. The Bear Hybrid feels like it has a depression where I sleep after 90 days! Customer service with them has been pretty good, so I may just not be a fan of their products. After that experience, I think I need something firmer, something cooler and something that is going to last a long time. This has led me to latex and to SleepEZ. I figure I spend 1/3 of my life on a mattress, so price isn't too much of an option, though anything over $2000 stings a little. I am strongly considering going with all organic including 100% organic cotton sheets for health and temperature regulation. I am curious what people could recommend to me in general, but also specifically about latex firmness, layer order, and stack height (thickness). I see that if I put my weight in for a SleepEZ organic at 185, it recommends soft (talalay) > medium (dunlop) > firm (dunlop). But if I put my weight in at 190, it recommends medium (talalay) > medium (dunlop) > firm (dunlop). I don't have much experience with latex mattresses, but I am drawn to them for their durability, cooling properties and firmness. I think three layers would be better than two, but I am not sure if there would be any difference between 9" and 10" or even going four layers. With this, I am also not sure what firmness levels my layers should be. Everything I have read so far on this forum has been very helpful, so I am really excited to see what you all have to say on this topic. Let me know if you have any additional questions. Thanks in advance!

Hi. I have a SleepEZ organic twin mattress. I went with their configurator and have three layers (from bottom): firm Dunlop, medium Dunlop, and medium Talalay. After 4 months, I've fully adjusted to it and sleep is much better than it was on my old Stearns and Foster. It cushions just enough while feeling on top of it, not sinking. Before SleepEZ, I had a Latex Mattress Factory Naturale, which didn't work out since it was just soft Talalay on one side and firm Dunlop on the other, lacking a sufficient middle transitioning layer, at least for me. It's since been discontinued. Good luck with your search.

Burpleson, how much do you weigh, and did you go with the 9" or the 10"?
