The Differences Between Your Old Traditional Mattress and Your New Latex Mattress
Once you own a latex mattress it is very hard to look back upon any other mattress type with any type of fondness. There are so many things that you recognize that were missing in your other ordinary mattress. It may not seem like a big deal to those who have never experienced sleep on a latex mattress, but for those who make the jump from non-latex to then sleeping on latex, there is a huge difference that becomes apparent and very noticeable. The first thing that you will notice on a new latex mattress is how you aren’t sleeping in a spoon anymore. Your old mattress has probably caved in to the point that there is an indentation there, and you may indeed feel like you are in a hole when sleeping in it. But not so with the latex mattress. Latex mattresses are almost like living, breathing entities because they have such elastic properties unlike pillow top mattresses or innerspring mattresses. They expand and contract very nicely so that you don’t have to worry about them becoming concave.
Another difference between your old mattress and your latex mattress is that your natural latex mattress isn’t going to put off any funny odors or get dust mites (or worse, bed bugs!). Your latex foam mattress has a pretty solid though breathable core so that it doesn’t host critters well at all. What’s more is that natural latex mattresses are antimicrobial, and resistant to mold and mildew because of their natural chemistry. You won’t be allergic to your bed, either, because it is hypoallergenic and actually biodegradable.
But the biggest noticeable difference that you will realize immediately sleeping on a latex mattress is how comfortable it is compared to anything else you have laid your back upon. The difference is night and day to what you are used to. Once you rest on a latex mattress you will have a hard time getting up in the morning because of the way that it makes you feel. Latex foam mattresses give you so much comfort and support at the same time, which you will often find yourself wanting to take naps or just to curl up and read a good book. So, if you have never had a latex mattress in your life, now is the time to buy one because the latex material is becoming ever scarcer.
