I was leery of buying a mattress online without first trying it but I am completely satisfied. It is very similar to the Tempur pedic one that we really wanted, and less than 1/2 the price. Both the head and feet can elevate really high or anything in between. I was worried the feet wouldn't elevate much because there weren't any pictures with the feet elevated very much, but they do.
We have been fans of European style latex mattresses for about 20 years. Because they have no memory, they maintain their shape, do not move when a sleeping partner moves and provide a superb sleep surface. It is difficult to find them here in the States for less than $1500- 2000, even for a full size, which is what we need. The last one we purchased was in 1999 and ordered directly from the factory. At $800, we considered it a bargain. Although the mattress was still in great shape, the pillow top had become depressed in places due to our penchant for reading in bed. After doing a good bit or research, and reading other O review, we decided to give this one a try. It was manufactured after our order was placed, yet still arrived very quickly. As soon as it was taken out of the compression bag, it almost immediately expanded to its full 10 inches. We left it in another room for a couple of days to outgas and have been sleeping on it ever since. Although dense, it was easy for us to move and position on the foundation and our deep pocket sheets fit beautifully. We prefer a very firm bed and so are delighted with this one. Like a memory foam, it does "loosen up" after a bit and soon has a bit more give while still retaining its firmness. I agree with other reviewers who said a topper is a good investment for those who prefer a softer surface without compromising support. Since the pillow top was our "problem" area, we decided to try it au naturel and are very pleased. All together a great choice at a great price and with great service.
I was a little leery ordering a mattress on-line without being able to test it, but boy am I glad i did. This mattress replaced my name brand memory foam mattress, which was starting to lose its' firmness and at times made me feel like I was sleeping in a pit.
The latex gives in much the same way the memoryfoam did, but is not heat sensitive, so bounces right back. I like a firm mattress, and do not use any toppers like some other folks. I felt better immediately, and actually had an improvement in my bad knee which I did not expect. it turns out some of my knee problems must have been from the heat sensitivity of the memory foam causing the knee to sink bit.
You won't go wrong with this mattress, and at this price if it doesn't last 20 years, who cares?
My boyfriend and I LOVE this mattress! We switched from your traditional coil/spring mattress to the latex mattress and will never go back. This mattress is very supportive and it greatly decreased the back pain we get from both being on our feet at work for 12 hours. It is similar to a memory foam mattress, however, you don't feel like you're sinking deep into the mattress like you do with memory foam. It is on the firmer side and if you're used to a very soft mattress they do sell the a mattress topper, but it feels amazing without it. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a supportive mattress without feeling like you're sleeping on concrete.
Because other reviewers described this mattress as very firm, I ordered the 8" instead of the 10". This was so that I could add a 2" soft topper and get the 10" mattress height I wanted. The topper I selected was the green tea mixed memory foam and latex. The combination is superb. The mattress is firm but it does have some give to it. I like the fast recovery of latex as opposed to memory foam. I like sleeping on the mattress with or without the topper. With the topper it's very conforming and soft on your body but you still get the firm support of the mattress. In other words you don't sink way down like with a memory foam mattress. Without the topper it's cooler and after some minutes your hips and shoulders do sink in so you do get the full body support. Either way it feels good. I have a bad back that now feels much better after sleeping on this mattress. The mattress is not very heavy and being vacuum packed means the package is not that bulky to receive, move in and set up. After I removed the plastic it started expanding immediately and after about 1 day seemed fully expanded. All in all is a great buy for the price.
I bought this mattress (E.C.O. Luxury Latex Firm 10-inch Twin-size Mattress) in July 2011. It is November now. No sagging, no back pain. I had a horrible spring mattress before, so I know what sagging and back pain are. I do think, although I may be paranoid because I paid all the money I had for this mattress and was really sick of my old one, that it has gotten more soft and more readily compresses in the middle, which is where I naturally lay the most. I really can't tell whether it's my imagination or whether it's true. In either case, the mattress works, it is very. very comfortable and I have no back pain. And many reviews say it's very hard -- not at all. It's not cushy and fluffy, because it's basically a thick flat sheet of latex on top of regular foam, but it's not rock hard at all. I am 5"1' 100 lbs. I really hope this mattress will work for a long time, only time will tell.
This mattress is exactly what was advertised. Good quality, firm, comfortable. The ordering process was easy and efficient. The mattress arrived when promised. It was fun to unwrap. The directions said it would take 48 hours to fully stretch back to its natural state, but in fact it took about 5. So far very good.
I looked long and hard for an affordable mattress that was firm and hopefully durable. Buying a mattress online is scary when all you have are descriptions and reviews from folks you don't know. My last Sealy Posturpedic cratered (literally) after about 7 years as did its predecessor. Im not a very big guy at 140 lbs, but I tend to sleep in only a couple of positions all night. I like a firm mattress, but reviews indicated this mattress to be too firm for some. So I bought a 2 memory foam topper to give it that extra cushiness while, hopefully, avoiding the feeling of sinking into quicksand. It worked out swell, but for another 75 bucks I may try the laxtex topper next time. Anyway, since a spinal cord injury 32 years ago, I must be careful of pressure points, but must be able to turn over easily when dressing in bed. Therefore, the right balance between softness and firmness is extremely important. Also transferring to a wheelchair requires reasonably firm edge support. This mattress and topper fit all my needs and, for about three months now, have given me the best sleep Ive had in years. Im hoping it holds up at least as long as the spring mattresses Ive owned. If so, I suppose you can't ask for much more at this price point. Oh and, I have not notice any toxic fumes and, as usual, Overstock did a great job by delivering it in one week.
THE PROCESS: Replacing our 15 year Spring Air (SA) "Four Seasons" cal-king mattress was a task my wife did not want me to undertake; however, I was beginning to have back pain, and a 100% latex mattress seemed to meet my needs, and the ECO our price point. Upon arrival, the UPS driver and I carried the box from his truck to our entry door. Unboxed, I rolled the mattress upstairs and placed it on top of our SA luxury wrapped steel box set. Unrolling the mattress from its plastic, I pulled the ever expanding roll back to bed center pushing each exposed layer of plastic underneath the mattress until it sprung open unfolding itself in 2 seconds (watch out) on the box set.
QUALITY: No odor, the mattress has a good quality side zipper cover. So extremely firm, even the top 2" soft layer is virtually unnoticeable. After 2 weeks sleeping much cooler on the latex than on our SA wool cover, my wife, a back sleeper, said she was very happy; for me, a side sleeper, I found my back pain had slipped away, but I began to awake with my arm(s) asleep. Unable to find a cal-king latex topper at O, I found a 2 soft latex bamboo cover topper for $249 shipped out of AZ - try searching latex bamboo topper. We have slept happily since 100% latex for under $1000.
Initially I wasn't very pleased with the product.....I was waking up with backache each morning. After a month I was ready to return. I was in the local mattress store looking for a replacement mattress set. This store also sells Temperpedic adjustable beds. When I mentioned the reason I was looking for a new bed, he gave me this little "tip." He told me that many Temperpedic customers come in with the same complaint, and sales personnel frequently forget to tell customers this TIP: "Have someone walk around on the bed to break it in!" His explanation was very logical considering the initial compression state of the mattresses. My grandchildren had fun walking on the bed, and now I love it! Very comfortable, great support!
If you've been searching around for a mattress, stop here. Especially if you've been exploring anything in the natural / organic / non-toxic world, you know that the experience is nothing short of confusing and potentially exorbitantly expensive.
We found this mattress after exhaustively searching (Essentia, Keetsa, Naturepedic, Flobeds... even Casper, Leesa and Tuft & Needle) and here's the scoop: this mattress is awesome. It is customizable, all-natural, high-quality, perfectly packaged, and delivered to your door (do NOT buy this product from Wayfair, by the way--their shipping policies are criminal, and don't promise anything beyond the truck showing up on your street). And this high-end product comes in at a lower cost than the low-end versions of any of the other natural / organic brands mentioned above, only slightly higher than the synthetic ones that will be off gassing for days and weeks.
I called Biosleep to ask a question about the layer configuration, and spoke to the owner of the company directly. He was gracious, helpful, and I couldn't have been happier when I got off the line. (Incidentally, if you're looking for the softest version, it's 3 inches firm on bottom, 6 medium in middle, 3 soft on top--kind of intuitive, really).
Regarding assembly, am a 5'10" athletic male, and getting it all together and in the organic zippered cover solo was totally doable--the cover is actually quite forgiving. But bear in mind you'll be pushing around 200 lbs of natural latex, so if you're any less adventurous than I, you might want to enlist a partner.
Bottom line: if you're reading this review, take my advice. End the torture. Buy this mattress. You'll be sleeping soundly again before you know it.
The mattress is pretty nice and I have only slept on it two times but the first thing I noticed is the curve down at the edge. With a mattress of this price point, would have like to see it level all the way across the top, edge to edge. After I use it more I may want to add to this review.
After researching mattresses, I finally settled on botanical latex as it will last longer, is very green, and very comfortable! Like marshmellow! Very heavy. Comes rolled up in a package. No weird smell. I sleep so much better now without any back pain in the morning.
I have had a latex bed for 25 years...and finally bought a new one.....that is, a Bio Sleep Concept *** latex...the only truly natural processed latex. The layers in the bed are firm with soft layers on top...just perfect for my knees and hip problems. I bought the 12" from *** Sleep, but plan to buy one at Overstock soon for my guest bedroom. The latex is so clean, uniform and fresh with no odor at all. Comfy organic wool and cotton bed cover And the cost is modest considering its quality down to the delicate mesh sock for each layer. Owner stands behind his products and his staff is efficient, prompt and customer oriented ! Great experience all around!
My wife and I purchased this latex mattress after more than six months of on and off research. We were very worried that the mattress would be too firm as a few have complained or possibly roughed up by shipment (since you cant send it back). Fortunately for us, it arrived in pristine condition and rolled like a section of carpet. We cut thru the plastic vacuum wrap and within one minute our mattress had 'inflated' to full size. We waited an additional 24 hours for it to fully expand and then set in on the box spruce foundation in our king bed, and went to bed. It turned out to be firm but also offered great support and neither by my wife or I complained. On a scale of one to ten with one being a bed of plush pillows and ten being a lightly carpeted floor, I would rate the mattress a seven in firmness. It does 'indent' slightly but not like a memory foam mattress and you do sleep 'on it' rather than 'in it'. For us, it was just what we wanted. We are at the one month stage right now and so far everything is great. I ordered this mattress for our own bed and also two full size models as well for our toddler son and one of the guest bedrooms. Very happy so far and will post back at the one year mark to indicate how they are doing.
Finding a latex, organic natural mattress for my daughter was not easy but this one addressed everything I was looking for and when I felt how soft if was, I was so relieved. Most Latex mattresses need an additional topper which adds to the expense, this one is perfect!!
I absolutely love this bed. It took a month to finally have delivered since it was an oversized product, but well worth the wait because this organic bed is just perfect in feel and when I sleep. I never cared for firm beds, but the firmness in this latex bed is too comfortable not to enjoy. Although a few inches short of fitting perfectly in my my king sized bed, I didn't care, just covered the sides up with extra bedding.
