1. Feel

Talalay latex cores and comfort layers have the most incredible feel of any sleep surface available. It is resilient, luxurious, breathable and incredibly comfortable. Unlike any other sleep surface you've experienced before, Talalay latex is pliable, yet supportive. It responds to your body's curves without that feeling like you're sinking in wet sand as is true with certain memory foams. When you need to reposition yourself during sleep, you can. Latex is resilient, responsive and recovers immediately. You won't have a tendency to wake up "holding on" while the sleep surface recovers its original shape.

2. Pressure Relief

Talalay latex is derived from the rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) and, in its finished form, consists of millions of tiny round bubbles with flexible, resilient latex rubber walls. The result is a "bottomless" sleep surface that prevents your pressure points (hips, shoulders) from settling on a hard or unyielding surface. The latex is always trying to lift and the lack of pressure results in increased blood flow that reduces tossing and turning which means a deeper, more restful sleep.

3. Breathability

Talalay latex is proven to be up to four times more breathable than Dunlop latex and provides up to three times more air flow than conventional polyurethane and memory foams. Increased air flow inhibits an environment where mold and mildew can grow and helps to regulate your body's temperature during sleep.

4. Supportive

Talalay latex has an elastic property that allows it to stretch and return to its original shape. It is able to conform to the natural shape of the body that instantly provides pressure-free support keeping the body and spine in comfortable position. This feature allows you to sleep pain-free resulting in a deeper, more healthful slumber.

5. Durability

Talalay latex cells are thick-walled, round, consistent and flexible and can withstand the flexing a body's weight provides night after night. Talalay latex is proven to be up to three times more durable than other types of latex and polyurethane foams. Your mattress will remain more comfortable for a longer period of time than with other cushioning materials.

6. Hypoallergenic & Anti-microbial

Talalay latex is hypoallergenic, mold and mildew proof and resists dust mites. It is made from natural ingredients in a process that yields a clean and toxin-free material. Latex International's Talatech™ latex has passed the rigid OkeoTex 100 certification standards.

How do you describe to someone the "firmness" of an object? Usually you would make a comparison with some other object, i.e., "as hard as a rock", "as soft and light as a feather". How about just the concept of "firm" itself? It's rather subjective. A lot of consumers have said over the years that "my mother told me to buy a firm mattress". What did she mean? Firm as in "hard", or firm as in "supportive"? There's firm/hard like cement, or there's firm/supportive like the cushions on a new sofa. You would have a hard time dozing off while lying on a cement floor, but you probably, quite often, doze off while lying on the sofa.

According to the Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School, it is more difficult to take in new information after a night of inadequate or poor sleep and, surprisingly, it is just as important to get a good night’s sleep after learning something new in order to process and retain that information. Also, undisturbed sleep is very important when learning new skills that require motor coordination and performance (athletic skills, work skills)

If you're like most consumers shopping for a mattress, chances are you haven't been in the market for 8 to 12 years. Many people have commented that they'd prefer having a root canal rather than go through the hassle and confusion of shopping for a mattress!

Like all support layers, innersprings control how deeply your body is permitted to sink into the mattress. This is one of the most affordable support cores, so there is no surprise that it is also the most popular. Innerspring mattresses vary in coil count and gauge size, but they basically fall under one of the four categories: bonnell, continuous, offset, and pocket. So, although most mattresses pretty much look the same from the outside, they are all very unique inside. With Innerspring support cores, wire coils comprise the support structure of innerspring mattresses. A heavy duty border wire provides support to the coils to help reduce sagging, so it can better retain its shape.
