Unboxing the Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress
Latex for Less knows that the unboxing experience is important to customers, so they take care to make it a positive experience by ensuring that the mattress is well-protected and easy to set up.
The mattress arrives in a large, well-protected box. The mattress itself weighs up to 280 pounds, but it is compressed into a small roll for easy transportation. This makes it possible for two people to carry the mattress into the bedroom and unroll it with ease.
To set up your Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress, simply carry it to your bedroom, gently unroll it onto your bed, and carefully cut the plastic wrapping. The mattress will expand to its full height almost instantly, providing you with a comfortable and supportive sleep surface.
As you start to cut through the plastic wrapping, you'll notice that the corners of the mattress expand all the way to the very ends. This provides support throughout the entire surface area of the bed, especially the edges. The mattress's seamless look is a testament to its excellent corner expansion.
We noticed a slight rubbery odor when we first unboxed the mattress. This was because the mattress is made of organic latex, which is a natural material that off-gasses for a short period of time after being compressed. The odor was similar to the smell of new rubber, and it was not harmful. It dissipated within a few hours, and we were able to sleep on the mattress comfortably.
Firmness, Height, Feel, and Comfort For Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress
Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress Firmness
Firmness is a key factor to consider when choosing a mattress. The right firmness can help you get a good night's sleep. Latex for Less understands this and offers a solution with a flippable mattress that has two firmness levels: firm (8 on our scale) and medium (6 on our scale).
It's important to remember that firmness is subjective. What feels firm to one person may feel soft to another. There are many factors that can affect how a mattress feels, such as your body weight, sleeping position, and personal preferences.
|Choose Medium If:||Choose Firm If:|
|Light Sleeper||Heavy Sleeper|
|Combination/Back/Side Sleeper||Stomach Sleeper|
|Prefer a balance of support and comfort||Prefer a more supportive feel|
Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress Height
The height of a mattress is important to consider when choosing a mattress because it can affect the level of support, comfort, and durability of the mattress.
The Latex For Less 2-Sided Mattress comes in two different thicknesses: 7 inches and 9 inches. The only difference between the two models is the thickness of the firm Dunlop latex layer. The 7-inch model has a thinner Dunlop latex layer than the 9-inch model by 2 inches.
Latex for Less recommends the 7-inch model to people who weigh less than 100 pounds because it provides less support than the 9-inch model, which has a thicker Dunlop latex layer. This makes the 7-inch model a good choice for kids, teenagers, and very small adults.
|Choose 7-inches If:||Choose 9-inches If:|
|Prefer a more cushioned feel||Prefer a more supportive, firmer feel|
|On a budget||Want a mattress that will last longer|
|Light Sleeper||Heavy Sleeper|
|Don’t sleep near edges||Edge Sleeper|
Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress Feel
For those of you who are familiar with the feel of memory foam, latex foam provides a very different sensation. Memory foam is dense and conforming, while latex foam is buoyant and responsive. This means that latex foam doesn't hug your body as much as memory foam does. Instead, it feels a little spongier and bouncier.
The soft, luxurious cover of the Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress envelops you as you lay on it. As you settle into the mattress, you start to feel the support. It's not too firm, but it's also not too soft. You feel a little bounce, but not too much. It's the perfect balance of support and comfort.
Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress Comfort
The Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress is a versatile mattress that is suitable for a variety of different sleepers. We tested the mattress in a variety of positions to see how it felt, and we found that it was comfortable in all positions, although some positions were more comfortable than others.
The mattress has two sides with different firmness levels, which makes it a good option for people who have different preferences. We found that the firm side is better for people who sleep on their backs or stomachs, while the mattress is particularly comfortable for people who sleep on their sides. The medium firmness of the mattress provides good support for the shoulders and hips, which can help prevent pain.
The Medium Side:
|Sleeper Weight||Back Sleepers||Side Sleepers||Stomach Sleepers|
|Lightweight (Under 150 lb)||Excellent||Excellent||Excellent|
|Average (150 – 250 lb)||Excellent||Excellent||Very Good|
|Above Average (Over 250 lb)||Very Good||Very Good||Good|
The Firm Side:
|Sleeper Weight||Back Sleepers||Side Sleepers||Stomach Sleepers|
|Lightweight (Under 150 lb)||Excellent||Good||Excellent|
|Average (150 – 250 lb)||Excellent||Very Good||Excellent|
|Above Average (Over 250 lb)||Excellent||Excellent||Excellent|
Constructions, Materials, and Design
Materials and Design
The Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress is a unique mattress made with three natural materials: 100% natural latex, organic cotton, and pure natural wool. It has two firmness levels, so you can flip it over to sleep on the firm or medium side. The latex provides a cloud-like sensation, the wool keeps you cool, and the cotton cover is soft and comfortable.
- Organic Cotton Cover: The mattress cover is made with the finest certified organic cotton, which is stretched (not woven) to provide a soft and welcoming sleep surface.
- Natural Wool: The mattress has a wool fire barrier that exceeds safety standards without any toxic chemicals. The wool also helps keep you cool while you sleep.
- Natural Dunlop Latex (“Medium”): The mattress has a medium natural latex layer that is responsive and provides a little more give than the firm layer.
- Natural Dunlop Latex (“Firm”): The mattress has a firm natural latex layer that provides more support than the medium layer. It still molds to your body for unbeatable comfort.
- Natural Wool: Adding another layer of wool fire barrier will ensure that the mattress maintains its performance when flipped.
- Organic Cotton Cover: This is an additional layer of the same ultra-soft cover that keeps the mattress feeling soft and luxurious, whether it is flipped or not. It also has a label that indicates which side is medium and which side is firm.
Performance of Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress
The Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress is made with all-natural latex, and it is also quilted with all-natural wool.
Latex is a naturally breathable material that wicks away moisture and heat, making it a good choice for hot sleepers.
Wool is another naturally breathable material that helps to wick away moisture and heat. This combination of materials makes the Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress a great choice for hot sleepers who want a comfortable and cool night's sleep.
We performed our standard cooling performance test by lying on the mattress for 20 minutes and measuring the temperature on both sides. We did not experience any excessive heat buildup, but there was a noticeable difference in temperature between the area we slept in and the area we did not. Overall, we felt cool, especially on the firmer side.
While this mattress is not the coolest we have ever tried, it still performed exceptionally well in our cooling tests. We were impressed by how well it kept us cool, even without any unique cooling technologies or springs to promote airflow. As a result, we gave it a 4/5 rating for cooling.
Responsiveness is important in a mattress because it allows you to move freely and sleep in all positions without feeling stuck or bogged down. Mattresses made with foam comfort layers tend to sink quite a bit, making it difficult to move across the bed. Latex has a springier, more responsive feel, and you'll sink a bit, but the material has a noticeable bounce-back.
We tested the responsiveness of the Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress by placing a 20-pound ball on it and then measuring how long it took the mattress to return to its original shape after the ball was removed. The mattress fully recovered in about 1 second on the medium side and 0.8 seconds on the firm side. This indicates that the mattress has great responsiveness, so we gave it a 4.8/5 rating.
Motion isolation is important in a mattress because it helps reduce the amount of disturbance that is felt by your partner when you move around. Mattresses that are made with memory foam tend to be good at motion isolation, as they are slow to rebound and absorb motion. Latex mattresses, on the other hand, are generally not as good at motion isolation as they are more responsive and bouncy.
The Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress is made with Dunlop latex, which is a denser and less bouncy material than Talalay latex. This makes the mattress slightly better at motion isolation than other latex mattresses. However, it is still not as good as memory foam mattresses at isolating motion.
We conducted two tests to measure the motion isolation properties of the Latex for the Less 2-Sided mattress. The first test involved placing a glass full of water on one side of the mattress and dropping a 20-pound ball on the other side. We observed the motion propagation in the glass of water to determine how much movement was transferred from one side of the mattress to the other. The water in the glass moved a little when the ball was dropped.
The second test involved rolling on one side of the mattress and having our partners report the motion they felt on the other side of the mattress. This test allowed us to quantify the amount of motion that was felt from one side of the mattress to the other. During that test, minimal motion was reported, but nothing too extreme.
Overall, the Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress performs well to isolate motion on both sides. However, if you are looking for the best possible motion isolation, we suggest sleeping on the medium side. We gave the mattress a 4.5/5 rating for motion isolation.
Edge support is important in a mattress because it prevents you from rolling off the edge and provides support when you're sitting on it. The Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress has good edge support because it is made with Dunlop latex. Dunlop latex is a dense and durable material that is resistant to sagging and deep impressions. This means that the mattress does not sink too much when you sit or lie on the edges, which helps prevent you from rolling off.
We conducted a simple test to evaluate the edge support of the Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress. We pushed the edges of the mattress with our hands and were able to push a little extra before feeling any counterpressure. Second, we sat on the edges of the mattresses to assess the edge support. We sank in slightly on the mattress, but not enough to feel like we would fall off.
Overall, the Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress has great edge support. However, if you want the best possible edge support, you may prefer the firm side more. We gave the mattress a 4.5/5 rating for edge support.
Noise isolation is important in a mattress because it helps reduce the amount of noise that is made when you move around. This is especially important if you share a bed with a partner or have a roommate. Latex mattresses are generally good at noise isolation, as they are dense and relatively quiet materials.
The Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress has exceptional noise isolation. This is because the mattress is made with Dunlop latex, which is a dense and relatively quiet material. It does not make much noise when you move around on it.
We conducted a simple test to assess the noise isolation of the Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress. We dropped a 20-pound ball onto the mattress and listened for any squeaking or noises through our sensitive microphones. We were able to hear the ball drop, but that is expected and normal.
The mattress is silent according to our test, so we gave it a 5/5 in this category. This means that the mattress is perfect for people who are looking for a quiet sleep.
Ideal mattresses for sex should be bouncy, cool, supportive, and quiet. The Latex for Less 2-Sided Latex Mattress meets all of these requirements. It has a light bounce that allows for movement and flexibility, cooling that prevents overheating, and good edge support that prevents partners from rolling off the mattress.
The medium side of the 9-inch Latex for Less Mattress is a good choice for couples who want a mattress that is both supportive and comfortable. The mattress contours to the body well, providing pressure relief and preventing partners from rolling into each other. It also has good responsiveness and edge support, so couples can move around easily and use the entire surface of the mattress.
The firm side of the 9-inch Latex for Less Mattress does not conform to the body as closely as the medium side. However, the firm side does offer a lot of responsiveness and strong edge support. This makes it a good option for couples who sleep hot or who need a lot of support.
We gave the Latex for Less 2-Sided Mattress a 4.6/5 rating for sex performance.
The Latex for Less 2-sided mattress is great at relieving pressure because it is made with materials that are naturally pressure-relieving. The Dunlop latex layers, soft cotton cover, and wool layer all conform to the body and distribute weight evenly, which helps to reduce pressure points and improve sleep quality.
In our pressure relief test, we took a 20-minute nap on each side of the mattress and then measured the pressure on different body zones. The pressure map below shows how the mattress responds to each sleeping position.
The Latex for Less 2-Sided mattress provides excellent pressure relief for back and stomach sleepers, with its medium and firm sides conforming to the curves of the spine and evenly distributing weight. This helps to reduce pressure on the lower back.
The medium side of the mattress provides even better pressure relief for side sleepers, as the latex layers conform to the shoulders and hips. This helps to reduce pressure on these areas, which can be particularly important for side sleepers.
The Latex for Less 2-sided mattress is a versatile mattress that provides excellent pressure relief for all sleeping positions. We gave it a 4.8/5 for pressure relief.
