When my husband and I got married we bought a nice new king size bed. It was comfy when it was brand new and even has a nice pillow top. Now that it’s more than a few years old it’s not so comfy anymore. We’ve tossed around the idea of replacing it but we can’t seem to agree on what’s comfortable for both of us so we haven’t gotten too serious about it. I like something soft, he likes something supportive. Amazingly we found the perfect solution for both of us and it didn’t even involve us replacing our mattress. Instead we discovered Pure Latex Bliss.
Pure Latex Bliss makes mattresses, mattress toppers, and pillows that are made with Talalay latex as opposed to the foam that most manufacturers use. Latex is rubber so it’s much more supportive. Simply, it holds you up rather than letting you sink in. Talalay latex is a natural product that comes from the Hevea tree and it hypoallergenic. So it’s actually healthier to sleep on than a traditional mattress. We put the Pure Latex Bliss Topper on top of our existing mattress a couple weeks ago along with the Pure Latex Bliss Pillows and I can’t say enough about how awesome these products are and what a difference they’ve made in the quality of our sleep.
First of all, the mattress topper is extremely comfortable for both me and my husband. It’s soft, comfortable and pressure-relieving, but you don’t sink down into it. It really seems to hold you up almost like you’re floating on top of your mattress. The pillows are the same way. I have a memory foam pillow to compare to these latex pillows and I definitely prefer the latex pillows. My memory foam pillow is supportive but you kind of sink down until you bottom out and it doesn’t exactly feel soft anymore. These latex pillows hold you up while staying really comfy and conforming to your head.
The mattress toppers come in both 2″ and 3″ thick sizes and I was a little worried that our mattress pad and sheets weren’t going to fit over top of it. Our bed definitely looks higher with it on the mattress. Fortunately it was no problem at all. Our regular mattress pad and sheets fit just fine, so you don’t need to worry about having to find deep pocket sheets to use with these toppers.
One other difference we noticed with the latex bedding is that it’s more comfortable in terms of temperature. I’m constantly kicking a leg out from under the covers then pulling it back in when I get cold. Sleeping on foam can make you feel hotter since you’re sunk down in there. When you sleep supported but on top of the latex you don’t get hot like that. I wouldn’t say it keeps you cool. I would just say you can control your temperature better with your sheets and blankets without having the added heat of sinking into a mattress thrown in.
Both the mattress topper and the pillows come with removable, washable zipped covers. We keep pillow cases and mattress pads and sheets on all of our stuff so I don’t know how often we’d need to wash these covers but it’s definitely good that you can if needed. The covers themselves are extremely soft and cozy too!
Pure Latex Bliss sells both a High Profile and a Low Profile pillow. We got one of each and I like them both equally. The High Profile Pillow is a little thicker so your head is elevated a bit more. They are both comfortable and supportive. The Low Profile pillow isn’t at all ‘flat’. I think it’s just a matter of personal preference as far as how propped up you like your head when you sleep. Some of the benefits of a Pure Latex Bliss Pillow:
- Resilient and Durable
- Mold and Mildew Proof
- Dust Mite Resistant, Naturally Hypoallergenic
- Antibacterial, Anti-fungal
The first time my husband laid on the bed after we put the mattress topper on it he said, “It feels like we’re in a hotel!” Our bed is seriously comfortable now. I don’t think either of us have gotten such good sleep in ages as we do now that we have these Pure Latex Bliss pillows and mattress toppers. Our pets won’t even get off the bed most of the day. Spoiled animals! 🙂 I can’t blame them, though. Everything seems better when you sleep well.
