We also learned that the two previous solid latex mattresses we owned began to \"sink and fail\" after one year because they were not made of the firmer Dunlop Latex. They were made of the newer Talalay Latex, which is processed by incorporating more air which can potentially cause the mattress to compress and soften over time. After learning the differences between the two manufacturing processes, I relate an Angle Cake with the softer Talalay Latex, and I relate a Pound Cake with the firmer Dunlop Latex. I’d even talked to the Talalay mattress manufacturer that made both of our latex mattresses which softened after only one year. One of their customer service reps told me that she loved how her Talalay mattress softened over time and \"conformed\" to her body to cushion it. I told her that she was still very young and what she considered cushioning, my husband and I considered uncomfortable valleys. We personally required and expected a mattress to provide the support our bodies needed for more than one, five, or possibly seven years. The company did replace that first Talalay mattress that failed after the first year, but they would not replace the second one. And, BUYER BEWARE: All mattress warranties are not the same. Please read and \"understand\" ALL the conditions of your warranty BEFORE you purchase your mattress.
While growing up, I used to babysit our neighbor’s children. When she learned I’d gotten engaged, she invited me to her home one day to suggest I purchase a latex mattress like hers. She pulled the sheets off her king size bed so that she could show me how the mattress had not sagged, and pointed out how the corners and edges were still firm after an extraordinary amount of time. I wish I could remember the exact number of years she’d told me that she and her husband had been using their mattress, but I do remember that because of her little demonstration, I knew that I wanted to purchase a latex mattress just like it even though I later found that it would cost me about twice what the average ’spring’ mattresses were selling for at the time. I searched the local furniture stores, but could not find this latex mattress anywhere. I remembered that when we had moved south, my mother had purchased much of her furniture from a sales rep at a large furniture store in a nearby town. He said that although the store did not stock this mattress, he could order it, and I asked him to order a solid latex mattress for me \"SIGHT UNSEEN.\"
Back in their original heyday, waterbeds were really just giant vinyl water balloons. If that’s what you think a waterbed today is like, you need to take another look. Waterbeds today look like regular beds but do require some special framing. They use an inner system of baffles and chambers to reduce transfer of motion (you know, that old tsunami-like effect when two people were in a waterbed and one got up). If you haven’t tried a waterbed lately, you really ought to check them out.
