Interested in latex mattress.
1. I believe firm Dunlop latex is better for the support. Do you have such an option?
*We only offer Talalay. We feel it is superior in consistency and longevity. Latex firmness is measured in ILD, which is how many pounds it takes to compress a 4” piece of latex to 3”. A 36 ILD Talalay piece of latex takes the same 36 pounds to compress as a Dunlop piece. Dunlop is stiffer, and can be used as a bottom layer without compromising the mattress. This will allow for a lower cost mattress. However, we feel that it is important to be able to move layers up and down in your mattress to achieve the best support for your body. If you have a Dunlop layer on the bottom and want to firm up your mattress, moving the Dunlop to the top will bring a stiffer, less conforming layer closer to your body and compromise the comfort.

2. Convoluted latex is soft. I prefer a bit firm as a top. Does convoluted latex also has firm, medium and soft type?
*We offer our 2” layer of convolute on all our mattresses. It is for pressure relief and blood circulation. If, after trying our mattress with convolute, a FloBeds customer wants a solid 2” layer instead, we will exchange (no charge) the convolute for any firmness desired from 22 ILD to 36 ILD.
3. After purchasing, can I change one of the layers, e.g. Change the firm for medium… What is the cost?
*We offer our Goldilocks Guarantee which allows you to purchase new cores (half width in King, Queen or Full) at a deep discounted price of $75 for the first 5 years. Here is a link to the complete details of the Goldilocks Guarantee: https://www.flobeds.com/guarantee/goldilocks-guarantee.htm
4. Returning cost
*Our 100 day test rest allows you to return your FloBed for a full refund of the purchase price. You only pay the shipping. For example: A queen mattress and foundation would cost $149 to ship to the Continental US. We offer our UPS account to return at the same price, so your risk would be $149 twice, or $298. A mattress only is $99 each way.
Thank you for considering FloBeds,

Imagine you could choose any spot on your body and make your mattress softer or firmer in that exact spot. That is relief, relief a FloBeds vZone Latex Mattress delivers to thousands of sleepers. The genius of the vZone lies in the six adjustable latex zones, all encased in an organic cotton sleeve, within the zippered luxurious Euro-knit organic cotton cover. Most bodies need attention in three areas: shoulders, hips and lumbar.
Need a little softer in your hip zone? Simply open cover, unzip the pocketed hip zone and insert your soft zone. Each sleeper controls their own firmness or pressure relief. www.FloBeds.com provides a “Mattress & Firmness Selector” and ships worldwide.
Add a European Slat Foundation with flexible beach wood slats under the mattress and one finds sleep and comfort most only.
FloBeds is able to make a pure clean mattress by using natural latex from the rubber tree surrounded by organic cotton quilted to organic wool. The wool acts as a fire barrier and passes the Standard for the Flammability of Mattress Sets (Open Flame Test). The new standard required mattresses and foundations to be able to withstand an open flame for 50 seconds on the side and 70 seconds on the top without igniting. Most companies use FR chemicals or other artificial components to pass this test… FloBeds is proud to use only wool to make our mattresses meet this standard. dream of.
Customer reviews cover the gamut from “herniated disk pain gone” to “our son’s FloBed is far cozier and more comfortable than our more expensive Duxiana.”
FloBeds was started by Dave Turner while a student at Stanford University. They sell 90 percent of their beds via www.FloBeds.com which features both a “Goldilocks Firmness Guarantee” and a Money-back Guarantee. Now the mayor of the small Northern California coastal town of Fort Bragg, Turner likes to tell folks that doing business on the internet is a lot like doing business in a small town: if you don’t treat someone fair, everyone will know about it. FloBeds’ focus on customer service before and after the sale seems to be paying off as 2013 saw their best year ever, and sales continue to grow.
