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.
