I have tried virtually every type of bed there is. Then I bought a Flobed. I have NEVER slept better. Before Flobeds, though, I did try a latex bed from SleepEZ (hoping to save some $$$). I returned it, dissatisfied with the quality and comfort. Biting the bullet, I decided to put my $$$ where my mouth is and try the Flobed. As I said, the best sleep I've ever had. Today, I just ordered a second Flobed for my wife. We sleep on 2 twin longs on a king frame. She thought she wanted a Serta extra comfy last January, so I shelled out $1400!! She grew to hate it; said it hurt her back. She started napping on my Flobed and loved it. She asked for her own Flobed which I gladly ordered because I know how much she loves mine. One suggestion, go with the website's comfort recommendation calculator. It was spot on for me.
You sleep a 1/3 of your life away, right? Don't short-change yourself and try to save a few bucks like I did. Go first class. Go Flobeds!!
OUTSTANDING ! ! ! I am embarrassed that I even tried to talk Dewey down on the price! After extensive research of the Latex mattress industry including a side by side comparison and a search for company complaints, I narrowed my choices to just 3. Flobeds was the most expensive of my choices by about $800.00. The cheapest choice actually looked cheap. The craftsmanship was obviously inferior to the Flobed. I called Dave, I played cat & mouse with him and finally told him I had a couple other calls to make before I parted with my money. I called my second choice and was handed over to somebody up top. He eventually took my order ( my mistake). It was an un-split (solid layers) design 10 inch king bed with a 6 inch thick Dunlop core and two 2 inch thick comfort layers of talalay. When it arrived the box was really beat up. I was un happy with the freight company professionalism. However, I soon found out why the box was so tattered. Imagine a king size mattress in a box and you and your spouse trying to get it into the house. It will only fit through the door diagonally. Once in the living room we took it out of the box because it was so dirty. BIG PROBLEM NOW! My 140 lb wife and I about killed ourselves moving it down the hallway to the bedroom. Picture yourself trying to move a 200 lb dead man (dead weight) you MIGHT be blessed with the heath required to do this. Now picture yourself trying to move a 200 lb dead man that is bulkier, say the size of a KING MATTRESS ! ! ! and, wait for it . . . . . . . . . . . . WITH NO BONES ! ! ! THERS IS NOTHING TO GRAB ONTO! For the first few nights both of our backs hurt, probably because of the exhausting workout just getting it ready to sleep on. We imagined ourselves occasionally re-arranging the bedroom and worse yet, moving, and concluded this was not the bed for us. We sent it back for a full refund minus $300 for the foundation (you can not return them) and ordered a Flobed. The Flobed arrived in several small and easy to manage boxes and without damage. NO B.S. it was easy to set up and the quality is "TOP OF THE LINE"! Plus you can adjust the layers to suit your comfort needs. (we already have). HERE IS A VERY INTERSTING FACT: We have been married for 29 years and we have both always been side sleepers. However, we are finding ourselves sleeping on our backs more often and without pain. I personally do not think there is a better Latex bed on the planet!
I am writing to let you know that my husband and I sleep on a Duxiana mattress. I decided to purchase a high quality, healthy mattress for our teenage son. He and I went to the Duxiana store together, but I did not want to spend quite that much money on his mattress. I had heard about your Flobeds natural talalay mattresses from my sister and decided to purchase one for my son. He has the comfiest bed in our home. His bed is by far cozier and more comfortable than mine with the Duxiana mattress. In fact, I recently purchased a talalay topper from Flobeds to put on top of my Duxiana to make it more comfortable. It has helped, but the full flobeds mattress is still more comfortable than my own.
Thank you for your excellent, natural, healthy, comfortable product.
After dealing with yet another mattress that began to sag after only 3 years, I was determined to find something comfortable, supportive and long lasting. Our mattress was the 3rd in as many years. Two were deemed defective by the store we bought them from and the third one was becoming extremely painful for me to sleep on. Hubby wasn't having difficulty, but I was. Searching the web for mattress testimonials, I found only glowing reports about the beds and the company, Flo Beds. The idea of being able to adjust cores to suit each person was particularly appealing and the 90 guarantee made it worth purchasing. Hubby was skeptical, but felt I needed to find out if this bed was worth all the positive reviews it had received. Well, it is! Hubby set up the bed, and now, after three weeks, finds this bed to be the most comfortable one he has ever slept in. I, agree. Wish we had "discovered" FloBeds when we lived in CA, it would have arrived sooner...now that we're in Florida, it took about a week for the bed to arrive.... :) A comfortable mattress, wonderful latex pillows and the DreamFit sheets, both available through FloBeds, along with the best customer support make this purchase one that will be considered one of the best purchases made in our 40 years of marriage. Kudos to Dewey and all at FloBeds.

Dewey,As I stated when I made the trip up to Fort Bragg to check out your beds again after 8 years of traveling. Been to Southern Cal. where they made the flipper Latex beds, soft, to medium to extra firm. When we went to Phoenix we checked out the latex bed makers there! I all ways came home to my Simmons and thought about what I needed! This was eight years of thinking, my old bed was killing my back and neck now! I had to do something! I must have bough a pillow a year.(a very nice collection)I remember seeing that memory foam block in San Diego, smash under that bedpost. It made up my mind. It never filled up with air any more! No, more spring to it! Latex was the only way to go! What does a latex bed feel like? A very stiff jello bed. That is the interesting part. I love it! It is a warm feeling a not hot! I just went on vacation, my back and neck problems came back over night! Thanks for making me hostage to my FloBed! I am being held hostage to my FloBed! Never thought this would happen. My son and his wife, just looked at me when I made them stop and checked out the other latex bed stores. I came home and bought the FloBed after 8 years. I waited way too long. Thanks for that strip of latex!Joe

Here is a summary of the first day experience with our new FLOBED package!On arrival I unpacked the six boxes, which took approximately 30 minutes, not a lot of time but the tight fit in boxes was a little challenging to handle for one person my age (66).The foundation installation was rather simple, as was the assembling of the core pads etc. The mattress cover fit like a glove! Only a Stanford scholar could have put such a fine package together!
Some of my muscles ached from the installation process, but I expected a good nights sleep on my Latex FloBed would get rid of my aches and pains.What a wonderful nights sleep! It felt like I was sleeping on cloud 7. No hot or cold spots, with good support. Nancys medium over firm may need an adjustment to firm over medium, but she will try my side first to test it out.
A great start, with a great product, and I must say the customer service support from FloBed is the best I have experienced in along time!
Okay, I will be completely honest about my doubts. I can't believe that I just bought a mattress that I had never slept on AND spent that much on an ONLINE purchase! Well, thank the Lord I did! WOW! I recieved the bed today and bartered with my husband that if he helped me get it together and gave me ONE hour of sleep then he and my 8yo could go to the movies tonight and I would keep watch of our crazy 2yo. I just woke up from 1 hour of bliss! I will say I had my doubts about my firmness choice, but since you have such a great exchange program and the bed is so easy to swap layers in, I decided not to worry. WOW! I bought med on 2 layers of xtra firm. It is wonderful! It feels very soft to sleep in because I am less than petite, but is wonderfully supportive. I threw my low back out 2 days before Christmas and luckily found a great chiropractor to help me out over the past week. I am standing straight, but very sore across my sacral area and hips. I have been rotating beds throughout the house nightly to try to sleep. YOUR BED IS WONDERFUL!! I also bought a "soft" latex pillow. When I felt it I was certain it would be too soft to give me any support,but I was wrong. I am truly amazed! It was perfect for my side/stomache/back sleep rotation. I can say, as a registered nurse and back pain sufferer, your bed exceeded my expectations for pressure point relief! I am so delighted. I am looking forward to going to bed tonight for the first time in years.

Below was our testimonial almost 7 years ago. STILL loving FloBed after all these years!! Whenever someone complains of back pain, I send them a link to your site. <Just did it again today> I can honestly say, the latex bed and company are both fabulous. You just can not go wrong buying from FloBed. Dave made sure we were thrilled, and 8.5 years later we are still gushing. FloBed made us customers for life!....................................It is hard to believe that we have had our latex King bed for 18 months now! It is such a wonderful bed that when we go on vacation we can not wait to get back home to our wonderful comfy bed!! We wish all the hotels and B&Bs knew about your fabulous mattresses.OK, we could gush forever...<snip>Happy Holidays to you and the FloBeds staff,Nancy and Peter
I first bought a dunlop latex bed from Savvy in Virginia. It had strong chemical smells that never got better. Your talalay bed was the exact opposite. No bad smells. Great bed.Thanks for the great bed and good serviceRod

After disastrously trying the "memory foam" and airbed routes, we were so relieved (physically and mentally) to find the natural latex (not the one mixed with petroleum) customizable beds from Flobeds. My husband only liked hard beds til this one (we have soft over medium over extra firm) and he LOVES it which is a miracle in itself. I have spine damage and this is the first and only bed that has helped me to get a full night's sleep in my life. It is not unusual to not roll or wake all night long! Imagine. We have the matching foundation and it is very well built also. We are both very large people and this mattress is so supportive and yet giving. Your body just keeps on "letting go" and relaxing when you lay down and unlike the memory foam it doesn't just keep on sinking all night long so you can't move and are sore in the morning. Absolutely divine. Customer service here was excellent also, they answered a ton of questions on toxicity, firmness, etc. We have had ours over a year now and it is just as wonderful now. Outstanding. We hate to sleep anywhere but home now and are planning on putting the natural latex in our boat also as it just cannot be beat. We are so happy we tried it, we love it. My whole family does.

It's been 1 week since I received my FloBed 100% Natural Latex bed. I was a little nervous at first, thinking that it would be harder than I anticipated, and that I might have to return some panels for softer ones. I have 2 each med., firm, xfirm for my queen size mattress.To my surprise, I woke up the next morning in the same position I went to sleep in, and I haven't had any uncomfortable nights. The support is great, and I have no more pressure point pain. Now I can hardly wait to go to hit the mattress each night.Another huge benefit is the hypoallergenic and antimicrobal nature of the mattress. I no longer have the horrible allergic rhinitis (and all that goes with it) that I had with my old mattress. This is important to me since I have severe sleep apnea and use CPAP. Keeping everything open is a must. Your customer service was great, answering all my questions over the phone. I received my bed in 3 days, putting a rapid end to my nighttime misery. Thank you for making my nights sleep truly refreshing and my working hours more productive.I highly recommend FloBeds and have happily made recommendations and referals to your website for more information.
I guess it has been about six months now since our two flobeds arrived. Acouple of weeks ago, I did something very important. I went into the garage, pulled out the cardboard boxes that the flobeds had shipped in,and proceeded to cut them up for re-cycling.
Why is it important? I don't intend to ship them back. They are keepers.Both the queen in the motorhome and the king in our bedroom. My wife keepssaying they are the best beds she has ever slept on.
After an extensive effort to find a bed that I didn't have a lowerbackache from in the morning, I discovered that they all had the sameeffect on me. The problem isn't the bed. It's my weight and poor physicalcondition. However, there is no doubt that the Flobed is far and away themost comfortable bed of them all.
I truly have to apologize to you for the hassle over the first bed. When Istill had backaches, I figured I could still find a better bed. Icouldn't! Not even the highly advertised Tempur-pedic was any better. Infact, I don't even know why anyone would buy one. They are hard and tend to be warm. We are sold on the Flobed. Period!
Thanks a lot.
It has been 6 weeks on my new latex mattress and I am so happy with my decision to purchase one of your beds. After a little time adjusting the layers I am getting the best sleep I have had in years. Your beds are a great product and your service was excellent. Buying mail order was a little scary but your company made it wonderful. The only bad thing is I will never be able to sleep on a spring mattress again!
I'm happy to report the new bed is working out quite well. I love it!
Thanks again for working with us. We really appreciate your superior
