If you have no problems with your back, an all latex or latex/hybrid mattress is an excellent choice.The all latex mattresses, (also introduced in the 1920s), has always been considered, “The Best You Can Buy”, due to their extraordinary longevity.
Pure Talalay Bliss, now known as Talalay Global, is considered the “Name Brand” among latex mattresses…shown here:…offering White Glove Delivery throughout most of the U.S.
Now that the inside of your body has the long lasting support it needs, it’s time to address the out side of you body…cushioning the Fibromyalgia with the the additional comfort layers needed.
We start with an All Natural Latex Mattress Topper….(Not Memory Foam).
There are many types of latex on the market. Most of what you’ll find is blended latex, (30% natural & 70% synthetic), which is not as durable as 100% All Natural.
Also, most these that are labeled as “Soft” are not as soft as the all natural latex that we offer.
Also, you’ll find some latex out there that is much lower in price. These come from China, where they add clay as a filler…still able to call it natural, but again, not as soft and with much shorter longevity.
We carry two types of latex…Vytex Dunlop & Talalay….with Talalay being the more supple and softer of the two.
For most of you, the EverEden 2″ Soft Talalay Latex is the one to get…offering UPS Delivery to all 50 States & Puerto Rico…shown here:
It’s common to think that if 2″ of latex is good, 3″ must be better. That, is not always so.The 3″ offers a greater depth of softness. For Petite people 150 pounds or less, who exert very little pressure, the 3″ Soft Talalay is a good option.
But for the rest of you, the extra depth of softness allows you to sink where your heavier, throwing off the natural alignment of you spine.
Between 150 and 250 pounds, stick with the 2″ Soft Talalay. It’s the one that gets all the rave feedback and it’s what we use at home.
The Dunlop is a bit more dense. For those of you between 250 and 300 pounds, go with the 2″ Soft Dunlop. or the 2″ Medium Talalay.
If you are over 300 pounds, use the 2″ Medium Dunlop.
The reason for starting with one of these latex topper, when addressing Fibromyalgia, is because latex toppers are a maintenance free product.
It comes covered in a nice knit fabric, which stretches…allowing you to get the most benefit from the contouring property of the latex.
The cover comes with corner straps, which hook around the corners of your mattress, keeping it in place.
It is, a set it and forget it product…and lasts for many years.
The one we have at home is several years old and still in like new condition.
If you live in Canada, the latex toppers from Natura are the ones to get…offering UPS Delivery to ALL Canadian provinces.
The Natura Latex Toppers are U.S. made blended Talalay Latex and sport a bit of wool at the top. These are also available for delivery to the U.S…shown here:
A Latex Topper is usually enough for most people to sleep comfortably and with greatly reduced pain from the Fibro.But, there are some who’s Fibromyalgia is in an advanced stage. For you, a latex topper helps, but isn’t enough.
In your case, add a Feather Bed Topper, from Pacific Coast Feather Co., for the extra relief you need.
It’s not a first choice, because a feather topper requires care…regular fluffing to maintain it’s loft.
The “Down Alternative” is a synthetic that requires less care than the natural feathers…offering UPS Delivery throughout much of the U.S….shown here:
