Which firmness is right for you?

“We’ve had the FloBed about 6 months now and love it! We were both experiencing morning back pain with our previous pillow top mattress. After researching the qualities of latex mattresses we decided to try it. We were very impressed with the ability to create your own firmness levels to match your body type and preferences. Very easy to put together and the best news – no more back pain!”

Sometimes customers are hesitant to switch to Latex. We understand it is a big change, but if you are looking for a high-quality mattress that provides amazing support, we have the one for you. Just pick the firmness combination that is going to work best for your specific needs and get ready to start sleeping better.

4 Star Review

4-Star–We bought a “latex” mattress about 9 years ago. It started to sag so we went
mattress shopping. We tried 4 different high end models and none were
soft/supportive enough! My hubby found this site and we ordered firm soft
soft for him and firm medium soft for me. Perfect! We are currently using our
old box springs but are looking forward to upgrading to the slat base. We
want to eventually put these in our guest rooms as well! We love them!!!

Fact: The Golden State Warriors’ Andre Iguodala puts sleep first.

The Golden State Warriors’ Andre Iguodala has a, “…newfound devotion to analyzing and refining his sleeping habits.” (Huffpost Sports) He has spent the last few years prioritizing his favorite TV shows over sleep, but that has now changed. He received specific directions on how to improve his bedtime habits from an expert at Stanford University. The Steps include:

  1. No cell phone or computer in the bedroom after 11:15 pm
  2. Breathing exercises

Getting more rest improves exhaustion levels, decreasing injury risk and improving shooting performance. A study showed that Iguodala, “…exhibited a 29 percent gain in points per minute and a 37 percent drop in turnovers per game when he slept an adequate number of hours.”

If more sleep helped Iguodala win a MVP title and Championship, imagine what it can do for you.

Fun Fact Friday: Going Online

September 29th, 2015


Did you know that back in 1995 we put our new pressure relief mattress on the World Wide Web with the idea of providing hospitals and institutions with information? Virtually no facilities came… but boy did the rest of the world! Soon we were shipping our components around the world. Back when going online was a new concept, FloBeds was smart enough to take advantage of the new technology.

Many customers ask- what is the difference between Natural and Original Blended Latex? Well look, touch and feel is the same. Natural Latex is made with 100% Natural Talalay and produced using no fillers, petrochemicals. The Natural is made with 100% milk from the rubber tree. We source our Natural Latex from Radium in the Netherlands. FloBeds 100% Natural Latex is biodegradable and Oekotex Certified (Europe’s highest environmental consumer product standard) to be free of harmful substances or chemicals.

Original Latex is blended 70% synthetic and 30% natural latex. Our Original Latex come for Latex International. All of our latex is naturally hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial (Bacteria, mold and mildew cannot live in latex) and dust mite resistant (tests prove latex is 3 times more resistant to dust mites than a traditional mattress) making it the perfect mattress material for allergy sufferers or anyone interested in breathing fresh, clean air while they sleep.
