I built my own high-end mattress
 from Bend, OR,  Apr 14, 2010

I like my beds soft, like "Princess and the Pea" soft (I'm a very light sleeper). Because so many "old-school" spring mattresses get worn out in the middle, I decided to buy an air mattress since it can be adjusted for softness and won't sag over time (you just inflate it, right?). However, if you buy a no-frills air mattress, they can get a little warm since you sleep close to the plastic/rubber mattress base and there's no breathable cushion to keep you cool. Of course, when you start pricing out the air-mattresses with the extra memory foam, latex toppings and fabric coverings, they can run several thousands of dollars. So I decided to "build my own" high-end mattress. I bought a basic air mattress (I bought an Aerobed for under $100 that has a hand-held remote for inflating), and then I covered it with this latex topper (about $100), a mattress pad and sheets. The latex topper has lots of little holes in it, so it's squishy-soft but still keeps me cool and comfy. Now, I have a great night's sleep! In summary, instead of spending $1500-$3000 on a new high-end sleep number-type air mattress, I've created my own by purchasing a simple air mattress with a remote and adding this latex topper, all for about $200! Regardless of your bed set up, I'd recommend this latex topper for anyone that wants a softer top to sleep on. Note: When I opened the box, there was a tiny bit of latex smell, but that dissipated within minutes.
