“How do I know which organic mattress is the right one for me?”This question comes up quite often. We will try to answer this question below.
Let us begin.
Who is this mattress for?
Is it for just you, for you and your significant other, for a child, for guests, for someone else? Children need a firm mattress for their growing bodies and most children tend to sleep on their back and stomach, so as they grow, this firm supports them well. As we age, we sleep more on our sides and want the plushness of a softer mattress with firm support.
What is the comfort level?
Normally, side sleepers, females, and older individuals prefer a softer mattress while back sleepers and stomach sleepers tend to go with a firmer mattress. Lighter individuals usually prefer a less firm mattress while heavier individuals prefer a slightly more firm mattress. With natural latex mattresses, an adult should consider using at least 6” of firm or extra firm rubber, or 3” of each, for the support of their mattress.
An organic adult mattress can vary in pricing depending on size and comfort. A rule of thumb to follow is to never get a mattress strictly because it is a lower price, if it is not going to be comfortable to you. These mattresses tend to have a warranty of 20 years when properly cared for, so you want to make sure you have the right one to meet your comfort levels. If pricing is a concern, a good way to save money while still meeting ones’ comfort needs, is to instead of getting a strictly natural latex mattress, go with an innerspring support and natural latex extra soft toppers for comfort, though this may be slightly less conforming feeling than the strictly latex and have more of a “bounce”.
