The Best Foundations or Base for a Latex or All Foam Mattress 07 Aug 2020 16:38 #861

Hey Jethro,

I'm about to pull the trigger on purchasing a new latex topper as you have mentioned. However is talalay superior to dunlop?
This is the topper I'm interested in. It's 6cm although I think 5cm is latex and 1cm may be the cotton cover. It's selling for $409 aud ($293 usd) and has a 100 night trial. If I'm unhappy it'll get picked up from me for a refund.

I just ordered the Love & Sleep queen mattress from Nest (thanks to the great info on this forum!). Are any of the Ikea bed frames (Malm, Nordli) appropriate for this mattress?

Hi Redfox,

I think you’ll be pleased with the result of adding a topper. Definitely keep me posted as to how it works for you.

Talalay and Dunlop are fabricated differently – one isn’t necessarily superior to the other. For the same ILD, Talalay feel is softer, bouncier, and springier than Dunlop and a great option for pressure relief on hips and shoulders. Dunlop is denser and firmer, and overall better at offering adequate support for proper spinal alignment. Talalay is the most popular option between the two when it comes to toppers.

I did a bit of browsing on the topper you’re considering. It does appear to be a full 5cm of latex (Dunlop). It appears this company prefers Dunlop over Talalay because they find it eco-friendlier in its production. It looks like they offer a luxury plush option if you’re looking for softer support.

Overall, it looks like a high-quality product. I think you can probably safely try this topper, and if you dislike it, rest assured (pun somewhat intended) that you can return it for a full refund and try a Talalay option instead.

Best of luck!

Jethro
