Extra Soft Latex for Presto

03 Sep 2019 16:03 #1 by Railroader
Hi Mario,
I have been on the TMU website for about a month and I have researched and researched some more and made a decision that I would go with a full/double latex mattress and your Presto mattress was very interesting to me as I liked the idea of being able to change the comfort level and also the price seems very good for an all latex mattress. I am an hour and half north of Toronto so took several different days to go and lay on some latex mattresses and get an idea of what I prefer and costs. I have discovered that I really prefer a very soft feeling mattress as I have shoulder issues (I am a female 5’9” and weight 164 pounds) and that I may just have to save a little more money to get what I really like. I fell in love with the Green Sleep Ergo Hevea Dolcezza (Dunlop latex 3” firm/3” soft/3” soft/1.5” extra soft - did not get the idls). Also like the Dormio Wakefield (Dunlop latex 6” medium 28-30 idl/3” extra soft 11-12 ild/2” extra soft 11-12ild) and a local company in Barrie (Unique Sleep ) offers a 7 zoned custom 100% natural talalay latex mattress with 3-3” layers and a 2” egg crate top layer and I again prefer the softer layers especially in the shoulder area where they would put in an extra soft zone
Are you able to get extra soft Dunlop latex for the presto mattress, something closer to 11-12 ild.

Hi Railroader,

Our supplier doesn’t recommend using Organic Dunlop Latex densities below 65 kg/m3 in a mattress. The softest latex we carry is 18-20 ILD in soft.

Sorry I can't help you further.

All the Best!
