Cotton/wool cover issue on the all latex mattress
08 Oct 2019 20:09 #1 by lorim
I have tried every layer arrangement possible with my all latex mattress, everything wound up causing lower back and/or shoulder pain eventually. Called customer service and the thinking was that I was just one of those persons that just doesn't do well on latex - I do have lower back issues, and would unfortunately probably just need to return the mattress. Then I remembered reading somewhere that someone removed their cover and slept on the latex without it, so I tried that. This seemed to do the trick, haven't had lower back since since removing the cotton/wool cover. So, my question is this. Are there any other cover options available that stretch and allow one to more sleep on the latex?

Congratulations on figuring out how to enjoy your mattress! I can sympathize; I’m going through the same thing myself . In terms of the mattress cover, some vendors have a stretchy knit cover that is like a little body suit for the latex. You may want to check the Trusted Members section of this site, then select “Latex/All Latex” to browse offerings online (this is the direct link: www.themattressunderground.com/list-all/latex-all-latex.html ). Hope that helps!

Maybe consider going with a firmer layer of latex over the coils/latex base and putting a topper above the mattress cover to reach the desired level of firmness? This will allow you to sleep directly on the latex. That’s my current arrangement with my standard Avocado mattress. I have a 3” layer of 24 ILD Dunlop latex sitting on the mattress that I sleep directly on.
