When we decided to buy a new mattress about 5 years ago, we went to sleepy's and tried out every model. after trying out natural latex, sleep number, tempurpedic, etc., it ended up being one of the most confusing experiences i have ever had! we decided to research a bit before buying. while doing so, we came across a california company called "flobeds" that combines all of these! their reviews were amazing, and the company seemed to be small and personable, so we decided to order a queen-size version with all the bells and whistles. The mattress arrives in a relatively small box, and you put it together (easily) yourself, by layering all the parts within what looks like a regular mattress outer fabric with a zipper around the pillow-top. The bottom layer is natural latex, then a layer of air pockets, then another layer natural latex, and topped by a tempuredic layer. my partner's side is medium and mine is extra firm support. the entire mattress is then enclosed in a zippered pillow-top outer layer that can be washed. we originally ordered a massage feature as well, but it wasn't that great, so we took it out of the mattress. i think our entire order was around $2200. THIS IS THE BEST MATTRESS WE HAVE EVER SLEPT ON!!! I don't know how to explain it other than to say that I literally comment about how noticeably comfortable it is whenever I return home after a trip away. it's crazy comfortable. and it has not worn down at all. They air layer is a feature that we ordered, so not one that would have to be included, if it's not something that one wants. bottom line--if you want a mattress that's like a party and everyone is invited, flobeds is for you--why choose just one type of mattress? ha!
