Latex Foam Mattress vs. Latex Foam Mattress Topper
It can become confusing when choosing between a mattress and a topper. If you already have a mattress and are looking for some added support and comfort, then a mattress topper is a good solution. Below are a few reasons to choose a latex foam mattress topper over a mattress:
At a density of 5.6 lb per cubic foot, Latex foam can become extremely heavy at larger mattress sizes and thicknesses. As such, it can become difficult to move and put a cover on it. The solution is to purchase a Latex foam mattress topper at a thickness of 1-3 inches instead of a mattress at 4 or more inches. You will still get the support, comfort, and airflow benefits of a Latex mattress at a more economical and manageable package.
Similar to weight, as the size and thickness of a Latex mattress increases, so does its price. Latex foam can become an expensive foam mattress at larger sizes. While it is true that Latex foam is the ultimate mattress when it comes to comfort, pain relief, longevity, and breathability, you do not need to spend thousands of dollars to achieve these benefits. That is why a mattress topper at 1-3 inches thick will achieve desired results that can be seen in thicker Latex mattresses but at a much more economical price point.
Benefits of Latex Foam
Latex foam provides buoyant support for a comfortable sleep to those with body aches and pains. It also contours to the shape of your body to provide proper spinal alignment and pressure point relief.
Its open-cell structure and pincore holes allow constant airflow throughout the foam as you lay on it, giving you a cool sleep experience.
Latex foam mattresses can last between a decade to two decades, maintaining its bouncy feel for years to come.
Its rubber construction prevents microorganisms from accumulating inside the foam mattress that can turn into mold, mildew, and dust mites. As such, Latex foam is ideal for people with allergies that want a restful night’s sleep.
