One of the most noticeable differences between latex and steel coil mattresses, is how extremely comfortable latex mattresses feel. When sleeping on steel spring mattresses it’s virtually impossible for the body’s pressure points to not make contact with steel. To relieve pressure on pressure points, the body’s natural response is to change position. On steel springs the body will compensate by turning up to 100 times a night. On latex mattresses, these low grade disturbances are reduced to 20 times or less. This makes for less tossing and turning, better blood flow and more oxygen to the body, and therefore longer, less interrupted REM and DEEP sleep cycles. The end result is your waking up more rested, restored and rejuvenated … an improvement to overall health.
At Mattress Mattress® we’ve seen the latex market grow rapidly as more and more individuals discover the benefits of sleeping on latex. Not only are latex mattresses comfortable, they provide exceptional pressure point relief, contouring support and a more breathable sleep surface. This provides better circulation and more oxygen to the muscles resulting in less interrupted sleep.
Latex Mattress Benefits
Latex contours to the body quickly. It aids in easy movement making it easier to turn at night with less sleep interruptions. Latex construction makes it breathable, which helps with the dissipation of body heat when necessary. Latex is also durable and resiliant, meaning it can be bent and stretched, always retaining it’s original shape.
Talalay and Dunlop latex are both made using rubber, but the process in which they are made differs. Some latex mattresses use all natural latex and others use natural latex blended with other materials.
Latex has been shown to provide 31% more pressure relief and contouring support than memory foam mattresses. Latex also conforms
to the body’s contours faster than memory foam, and sleeps cooler. Latex construction makes it breathable, which helps with the dissipation of body heat. Latex is also durable and resilient, and can be bent and stretched out time and time again, retaining its original shape. A latex mattress also provides independent support, so you’ll be able to move freely in bed without disturbing your partner.
Buying a latex mattress to help with spinal alignment is important, but muscle relaxation also needs to be considered. Pressure on pressure points when sleeping can cause muscles to become tense, resulting in restless sleep, even pulling your spine out of alignment. Relaxing muscles while sleeping can assist in relieving stress, stiffness, help lower blood pressure and boost immunity. With its uplifting support and pressure-less feel, sleeping on latex mattress will allow muscles to relax, leaving you feeling like your floating on a cloud when sleeping. A latex mattress lifts your body back up to the surface, instead of you sinking down into the mattress like other types of mattresses … you WILL feel the difference on a latex mattress from Mattress Mattress®.
Latex is Natural with Many Benefits
Natural Latex is made from rubber from rubber trees. Natural latex is hypo-allergenic, and inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi and dust mites, making it beneficial for people with respiratory problems. Most latex mattresses at Mattress Mattress® are made with natural Talalay latex rubber from the sap of a Hevea tree. The manufacturing process for these mattresses uses natural, organic, biodegradable ingredients that come from renewable resources. This process uses no harmful solvents, and doesn’t emit harmful elements back into the environment.
Some latex mattresses use natural latex blended with other materials. This is done for a number of reasons including; comfort, softness, firmness and in most cases the latex-blended mattresses will last for a longer period of time compared to all-natural latex. Although you may be searching for 100% natural latex mattresss, which are available at Mattress Mattress®, you may find a blended latex mattress more suited to your needs.

Latex Mattress Research
As you research information regarding latex mattresses you will ultimately look to online reviews to get as much information as possible before committing to purchase. You’ll be interested to know what the negative reviews are saying about latex mattresses. The two most common negative statements about latex mattresses are that they are expensive and heavy.
Latex Mattresses available from Mattress Mattress® are constructed of Talalay rubber, made in a mould that both freezes and vulcanizes the material. It takes 14 hours to manufacture the latex. The process is superior to most other processes around the world, because of the cleanliness of the material produced for the mattress construction. Talalay latex is rinsed five times to remove proteins, while most other latexes are rinsed only once, or not at all. The manufacturing process is more time consuming and intensive when compared to the construction of other types of mattresses and as a result the cost is higher. Mattress Mattress® carries latex and blended latex mattresses that are extremely competitive in price … comparable to synthetic memory foam mattresses found in the marketplace.
Latex is a solid product compared to steel-spring mattresses and is therefore heavier in mass and overall weight. Because of their construction and weight, latex mattresses do not have to be rotated like traditional mattresses.
