How to find the best organic mattress! July 16, 2013

                        “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 or on our website, but if you still have questions so you may make an informed choice – call us at 800-596-7450 or email lena@ecobaby.com.

            Let us begin.
            Firstly; 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.             
            Pricing-
            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”.
            Lastly; Some quick Pure-Rest Mattress notes:
 1. Softer mattresses on our website include the Sagittarius, Celestial, Libra, Circa, Athena, and Zeus. Firm or Firmer mattresses include the Harmony, Gemini, Wool outer, & Apollo. Medium to slightly firm mattresses, with a little bit of comfort, include the Selene, Atlantis, and Leo.
2. The most commonly purchased organic mattress for adults is the Sagittarius Zip Outer mattress in extra firm, firm, and extra soft. The most commonly purchased organic mattress for children is the Harmony tailored in firm. The Zip Outer Harmony mattress is also quite popular among both children and adults as each side can have a different firmness.
3. On our website, if you click on the mattress you are interested in, it directs you to a more detailed description of the mattress, helping further to give you an ideal of the feel.
4. The Gemini and 4.5” wool outer mattress is firmer than the other mattresses and is not recommended for permanent usage for adults because it is not supportive enough due to it being too thin.

We hope this helps you with such an important decision as mattress selection!

    For me, organic mattress is really ideal to use especially for kids. Some mattresses are made of toxic materials which could be harmful for your health. Be sure to carefully check the composition of your mattress when buying.
