Price & Value
Natural latex mattresses are much pricier than blended or synthetic ones, and correspondingly, natural latex performs better in areas like lifespan, sagging, etc.
Since each layer of the mattress can be flipped individually and replaced by a new layer, on average, the lifespan of a latex mattress is about 8 years which is longer than the average life expectancy of all mattresses.
The most complained problem that the latex mattresses received is compression. A significant number of users report that their beds develop uneven surfaces due to body impression after three years of everyday use.
For those who prefer firmer mattresses, Dunlop latex is a suitable choice while Talalay latex tends to be softer and more conforming. Know more at Mattress Firmness Guide.
