Okay here goes, On 12-28-2012 I purchased the Beautyrest Classic Meyers Plush Pillow-top Full-size Mattress Set Options: Full from Overstock. It was $796.00. Since getting this mattress I've had a constant backache every morning. The middle of the mattress sags horribly already and I only weigh 140 pounds! I am thinking of purchasing the 2 inch Talalay Latex topper but I am confused about what density would be right. I want some support. Could you explain which density (soft medium or firm) gives the best support?

Questions & Answers
Hello linda1987, as a rule the firmest density gives the most support. This may not be how you like your mattresses pads though, you may need to order the the style of mattress that suits you best. Consulting a professional may help. I hope this has helped you. Thank you for shopping with us.
So you are saying that this is all Natural rubber...This is 100% botanical rubber?
Thank you for your question. This is 100% Natural Talalay latex.
Will this topper support my lower back? I have recently bought a cheap memory foam mattress - without realising there are different grades - and it is giving me back ache. My underlying mattress is in a rented room so I can't change it - the mattress is new but very firm and uncomfortable
I hope this information helps you decide which memory foam mattress is best for you. A memory foam mattress is usually denser than other foam mattresses, making it both more supportive, and heavier. The property of firmness (hard to soft) of memory foam is used in determining comfort. Firmness is measured by a foam's indentation force deflection (IFD) rating. However, it is not a complete measurement of a "soft" or "firm" feel. A foam of higher IFD foam but lower density can feel soft when compressed. IFD measures the force (in pounds-force) required to make a dent 1 inch into a foam sample 15" x 15" x 4" by an 8-inch-diameter (50 sq in) disc—known as IFD @ 25% compression. IFD ratings for memory foams range between super soft (IFD 10) and semi-rigid (IFD 120). Most memory foam mattresses are firm (IFD 12 to IFD 16). Some report that IFD is a poor way to measure softness of memory foam, and that foam density as a measure of quality is more important, but not always true. Foam density of 5 pounds per cubic foot (80 kg/m3) or greater is considered high quality, although most standard memory foam has a density of 1 to 5 lb/ft3 (16–80 kg/m3). Most bedding, such as topper pads and comfort layers in mattresses is 3 to 4.5 lb/ft3. Very high densities such as 5.3 lb/ft3 (85 kg/m3) are used infrequently in mattresses.
I have the same question as the previous customer. Talalay latex can be produced using either synthetic or natural latex. Is this topper made of synthetic latex, natural latex, or a blend?
Yes it is 100% natural Talalay latex. It is not synthetic or blended.
Is this 100% Natural Talalay Latex that is in no way blended?
Yes, this is 100% Talalay Letex.
