Greetings, everybody I am glad I can be part of this forum because it is so chatty and alive all the time, which is why I think this is the perfect opportunity for me to bring up my problem. I reckon that the mattress experts of this forum will be able to help me though because I need some advice on which mattress is better, I guess you could say a comparison (sort of?). So the story goes like this – my hubby and I have been in search of a new mattress for a while now because our old mattress is getting a little raggedy, but still very much doable. We have had some serious conversations as to whether or not we even needed this new investment, and honestly, I think we do. Our old mattress, though still as comfortable as ever is aesthetically speaking, horrific. We had guests over the other night, and they took a peek at our mattress, and I kid you not, the lady friend gasped. Now, my husband doesn’t seem bothered by this, but it took a serious hit at me because technically she was gasping at what we lived with. I know that shouldn’t matter, but let’s be honest, any mattress that has lived for longer than seven years is a goner. However, we are not throwing it away, just keeping it in our spare room for now. I don’t have his good vote on this, so our budget is very tight, which is why I have to make harsh decisions (even if it’s $100 cheaper) and could use some insight as to whether I’m headed in the right direction. Anyway, I dragged my husband and went to IKEA today (because they have the prices I cannot refuse), and we were able to test a couple of mattresses. Since our other mattress is memory foam, we decided to steer a different direction this time and figured it wouldn’t hurt to try out latex. I’m relatively new to the mattress world as such, but one thing I have noticed is the increasing trend of getting latex mattresses, because of its green property, which is all fine by me, but there’s no way in I’m getting a 100% natural latex mattress for like $5k (just don’t have that kind of money). So we found two interesting mattresses, from MYRBACKA – a foam and a latex mattress. Even though we were very happy with the latex mattress, upon further studying, we found out that it was just a layer of latex on top, and the rest was polyfoam, which made sense, given its price. Now I’m not sure using a mattress with just the top layer is green, but if it is no better than a memory foam mattress, I don’t see the point in spending the extra in the first place. Any Help Please….
