There’s a reason why Charles P Rogers mattresses have been featured at luxury hotels like the Waldorf Astoria and St Regis Hotels in New York City for many years. With 160 years of mattress making experience, founded in 1855, Charles P Rogers is the longest continuously operating mattress and bed frame manufacturer in the United States. Based out of the Flatiron District of NYC, Charles P Rogers mattresses are all handmade in New Jersey. We recently reviewed Real Bed by Charles P Rogers. This natural latex mattress is made with all natural, organic materials and is available under a $1k for twin, full mattress, or queen size mattress. Natural latex mattresses normally cost 3x-5x this amount at brick and mortar mattress stores. Check out our full thoughts below where we go into more detail about Real Bed.

What are the benefits of sleeping on latex mattresses?

Latex mattresses have recently become affordable for more consumers due to the mattress in a box direct to consumer market has taken off the last few years. Prior to buying direct from the mattress maker, mattress stores would mark up latex mattresses prices making them unaffordable to the average person. Latex mattresses are more durable than foam and spring mattresses and many last 15-20 years without losing their support. In addition to the added lifespan of latex mattresses, latex is also antibacterial and naturally cooling. Sleepers with allergies, hot sleepers, and side and back sleepers benefit from sleeping on natural latex. If you still have questions, check out our comparison of latex vs memory foam for a more in depth description of both mattress compositions.

Are all latex mattresses on the more firm side?

Your body won’t sink into a latex mattress like it will on memory foam. Latex is resiliant and supportive but can sometimes be too firm for side sleepers. If you are a side sleeper and prefer latex, adding a plush mattress topper will make your sleep surface much softer. We got a chance to test out the Real Bed mattress topper with our mattress review and it created a very comfortable side sleeper environment. Without a plush mattress topper, most latex mattresses are more firm than memory foam or traditional spring mattresses.

How long will my Charles P Rogers mattress last?

Mattress lifespan depends on the sleeper and how well the mattress is maintained over time. If you rotate your mattress and keep your mattress in a waterproof mattress protector, your mattress will last longer. How often should you rotate your mattress? It’s recommended to rotate your bed every 3 months. 

What type of sheets do you recommend?

Real Bed is 11.5 inches thick. If you add the Charles P Rogers mattress topper to your new mattress, that’s another 2.5 inches totaling 14 inches. Deep pocketed sheets are recommended for this mattress. There’s nothing worse than the sheets popping off the bed so if you don’t have deep pocketed sheets, do yourself a favor and get a set for your new mattress.

How long will it take me to get used to my new mattress?

Depending on how poor your prior mattress support was, it may take some time to get used to your new mattress.

Just keep in mind, your new mattress is providing proper support to your body now so deep, healing sleep will be in your near future.
