Why You Should Get a Latex Mattress Topper
Latex mattress toppers are an additional padded layer that goes on the top of your bed to increase comfort for a night of great sleep. It’s basically an addition to your mattress that forms a barrier to protect against everything from stains to allergens. A latex mattress topper can help improve your night’s sleep, and provide support to your neck and other pressure points to help you get rid of uncomfortable pain and aches.
A mattress topper is a great investment if you can’t purchase a new mattress, but can’t stand your existing one. It can give you the required comfort if you aren’t ready to buy a new mattress just yet. A latex mattress topper can change a good mattress into an amazing one.
Mattress toppers help increase the longevity of your mattress. A topper can help protect your mattress by having a medium between you and your mattress, minimizing foam mattress compression, with a cover that you can wash to dispose of bacteria, dead skin and unwanted allergens.
An additional bonus to having a latex mattress topper is that it helps counter motion transmission from your sleeping partner, giving you and your partner a better night’s rest.
Flobeds is unique to the bedding industry, because not only do we provide the best green mattresses around, but we use Talalay latex. Talalay is the most consistent, durable foam offered in the business. Learn more about the different types of latex mattress toppers we offer.
Which Topper Is Right For You?
Twice Fluffed Shredded Natural Latex Mattress Topper
Our twice fluffed latex mattress topper from FloBeds contains Shredded Natural Latex sewn into a 100% organic cotton cover. Talalay Latex is run through our shredder twice to give optimum loft and comfort. Give your body some pressure relief today!
Our Natural FloBeds Twice Fluffed Toppers have a zipper with two pulls running down the side (or both sides in Queen and King sizes). The side can be opened at any channel and the firmness adjusted by adding or removing shredded latex. The most common places to adjust are the shoulders, lumbar and hips. The latex mattress topper Queen and King sizes have a seam in the center so that each side of the latex topper can be adjusted “just right” for each sleeper. (However, if you’d prefer, we can also eliminate the center seam for Queen latex toppers on request.)
3” Solid Latex Mattress Topper
Our 3” 100% natural Talalay latex mattress topper, will truly let you experience the qualities of Talalay latex. A superior process to making latex foam rubber, Talalay latex is the most consistent, durable foam offered in the bedding industry. The unique design of this latex bedding topper has a larger, open-cell structure, which pulls heat away from your body, and promotes a cooler sleep, it’s very breathable. While even the softest talalay latex has a lot of give, it pushes back too. The supple feel of Talalay is like no other latex, and while it feels soft, it offers great support as well.
2” Convoluted Latex Mattress Topper
Our egg-crated or convoluted Natural Latex mattress topper provides better pressure relief and blood circulation in the skin. (This is why hospitals will use an egg crate/convoluted foam topper when someone has had an operation, to avoid creating pressure ulcers. Even when we are lying in one position, we move slightly and the convoluted latex provides alternating pressure to your skin.) We start with 28 ILD (medium firmness) which when convoluted feels more like a 14 ILD. This is because we have removed every-other square inch of latex, and your body is supported on half the latex.
The feel is unique, this will offer you a cloud-like feel while you sleep, without a marshmallow sinking effect. This gives you the wonderful feeling of pressure-point relief. As well as being one of our latex mattress toppers, we use this layer in the top part of every single mattress we make — it’s really the icing on the FloBeds cake.
Why Talalay Latex?
Talalay is the best latex mattress topper. Why? Every one of our latex foam mattress toppers are made using the renowned Talalay process, meaning that each one is carefully crafted to give the ultimate feel and flexibility. Talalay latex keeps its shape better than any other kind, meaning it is soft enough to mold nicely to your body, but still holds up over time.
A Talalay latex mattress topper not only offers you superior support but also optimum airflow and ventilation. Unlike some other materials, Talalay latex is able to remain temperature neutral, helping you sleep cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It is also antibacterial and hypoallergenic, meaning it won’t collect dust mites and allergies as much other bedding is prone to.
All of this also means that our latex mattress topper components will last for years before you have to replace it.
Organic Cotton Cover
In addition to the natural latex used, our latex mattress toppers are all covered with certified organic cotton. It is important to us that more than just the core of each latex topper is green and natural. That’s why our organic cotton is grown without pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, or any chemical fertilizers of any kind. Where conventional cotton is traditionally one of the most chemically-dependent crops, organic cotton uses agricultural methods designed to help sustain the land it grows on — as well as the people who grow it, and the planet itself.
Most importantly, the organic cotton covers used on our latex mattress toppers make for the softest, most comforting experience as you sleep.
What type of topper should I get?
While all of our toppers are high quality, each have their own strengths. The 3' solid topper is the softest, the convoluted topper gives the best pressure point relief, and the shredded topper has the best airflow. You should choose the one that best fits your needs!
How long does a latex topper last?
Our latex toppers can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years.
