Even young Goldilocks understood the importance of finding the proper mattress firmness for a good night’s sleep. Mattresses that are too firm or too soft each bring unique problems that affect your ability to sleep comfortably and throughout the night. That’s why it’s important to take a few moments to learn which firmness is best for your sleep needs.

PlushBeds’ Botanical Bliss latex mattresses are available in four different levels of firmness. These levels are soft, medium, medium-firm, and firm.

And who isn’t, right? Part of the beauty is the long 20-year warranty, but that’s only the beginning of the many great things to remember when comparing this mattress to others in the same price range.

Latex Mattress Zippered Cover

One of the best features with latex mattresses is the fact that comfort layers can be added or removed in order to adjust comfort and/or firmness of the mattress. Unfortunately, some mattress makers glue the layers together and seal them in a sewn mattress cover. This removes the adjustability factor so many people love about their latex mattresses. It’s also why it’s such a great idea to go with manufacturers that offer the convenience of a zippered mattress cover for their latex mattresses, along with their “unglued” latex mattress layers.

Of course, the zipper is only part of what you should expect from your mattress cover. These are the two types of latex mattress covers commonly available on the market today.

The Latex Mattress Core

The core of the latex mattress is what gives the mattress form, shape, and definition. Without a proper core, there is no latex mattress. Currently there are two manufacturing techniques used for making latex mattress cores. They are Talalay and Dunlop. Dunlop mattresses are firmer and denser than Talalay mattresses, while the Talalay mattresses are softer and not quite as supportive. These differences are the direct results of the mattresses’ manufacturing by latex mattress manufacturers.

Latex Mattress Questions

This leaves many people with unanswered questions about latex mattresses and what they have to offer. These are a few of the most commonly asked questions and answers so that you can buy with confidence that you know what you’re getting.

Best Mattress for Shoulder Pain

 

Shoulder Pain

“Shoulder pain is a common and disabling complaint. The reported annual incidence of shoulder pain in primary care is 14.7 per 1000 patients per year with a lifetime prevalence of up to 70%,” according to a 2011 BioMed Central report on musculoskeletal disorders. That’s why finding the right mattress is so important. Of course, it’s not just about finding the right mattress for shoulder pain. You also need to find the best mattress for side sleepers or back sleepers, as the wrong mattress for the way you sleep can also serve to exacerbate shoulder and/or back pain.

However, finding the best mattress for kids can have a profound impact on your child’s grades in school, physical fitness, and alertness throughout the day.
