Check out more about the Latex For Less 9 Inch Latex Mattress below.
What makes the Latex For Less 9 Inch Latex Mattress superior to other mattresses?
The Latex For Less 9 Inch Latex Mattress has dual firmness levels. You simply flip the mattress to go from firm to medium firmness. This is great for those that don’t really know what firmness is best for their sleep style. Then firm side uses Dunlop Latex which is known for being dense and firm. The medium side uses Talalay Latex for a much softer sleep surface. Many memory foam mattresses have flippable firmness but this is the first flippable firmness latex mattress that we have reviewed.
What type of cover is on the Latex For Less 9 Inch Latex Mattress?
Latex For Less uses a stretched organic cotton cover for their mattress. The cover is a cream color and fits nicely on the mattress.
What’s under the Latex For Less 9 Inch Latex Mattress cover?
Under the cover of the Latex For Less 9 Inch Latex Mattress is ½ inch of 100% natural wool, 6 inches of 100% natural Dunlop Latex, 2 inches of 100% natural Talalay Latex, followed by ½ inch of 100% natural wool.
The 100% all-natural California wool works as a fire barrier. All-natural wool breathes better than synthetic wool so the wool also helps regulate mattress surface temperature.
The firm side of the mattress is comprised of 6 inches of Dunlop Latex to give the sleeper a medium firm sleep surface.
The medium side is made up of 2 inches of Talalay Latex. Talalay Latex is much softer than Dunlop and gives the sleeper a soft medium sleep surface.
What’s it like to sleep on latex compared to memory foam?
If you’ve never slept on latex, it’s definitely different than memory foam. Latex does not retain heat like many foam mattresses do so you get a cooler sleep surface. Latex lasts much longer than foam. You can expect a latex mattress to last 20 years where many foam mattresses start to lose their support in 7-10. Latex gives you a more resilient sleep surface so you sleep on top of the mattress instead of sleeping in the mattress as you do with foam. Latex also has bounce that you will not get with memory foam.
What makes latex a great material to make mattresses out of?
Latex mattresses are more durable, sleep cool, and don’t have the sinking feeling that many people complain about with memory foam. Latex is all natural and has no annoying off gassing period that memory foam sometimes has when it’s unboxed.
Does Latex For Less offer a warranty and sleep trial on their mattresses?
Latex For Less gives you a 20-year warranty on their mattresses as well as a 120-night sleep trial. The sleep trial gives you the time to ensure you love your mattress or they will refund you 100% of your money as long as it’s within the 120-day time frame.

Final thoughts on the Latex For Less 9 Inch Latex Mattress
The Latex For Less 9 Inch Latex Mattress is extremely comfortable. I really liked the flippable dual firmness option. We thought the firm side was more of a medium firm and the medium side was a soft medium. The Talalay Latex medium side was perfect for me since I sleep on my side. The mattress is well made and extremely comfortable. I can’t think of a latex mattress that I have slept on that was more comfortable than Latex For Less. If you are in the market for a new mattress and prefer latex, I would highly recommend starting your 120-night sleep trial with Latex For Less.
