Unlike the story of \"Goldilocks and the Three Bears,\" where Goldilocks tried sleeping on two beds before she found that the third bed was just right for her -- my nickname is Goldilocks, but this is not a fairy tale. This is a TRUE STORY about finding my perfect latex mattress 40 years ago, when I purchased my first bed, and my difficult search to find a replacement.
Air mattresses come in a variety of designs and levels of quality. However, the driving principle of an air mattress is (as the name implies) that you inflate the mattress with an air pump to a level you find comfortable. Whether you’re using a simple, single chamber mattress or a more advanced multi-chambered bed, you’re able to control how firm the bed is by how much air you pump into the bed. The air in air mattresses behaves much in the same was as the water in waterbeds. The air in the mattress conforms to the shape of the body and helps to reduce the amount of pressure put on the spine. While air mattresses have a typical lifespan of 10+ years, there are more parts that can wear out and caues the mattress to loose its ability to provide adequate support and comfort.
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.
