I had attempted a warranty claim exchange for my Tempurpedic mattress.
Our Cloud Supreme model is losing its support and comfort.
But, as I've read on your blog, we did not prevail in that warranty claim because when you get off the bed, the memory foam returns to its original shape.
Since it still "looks" ok, the warranty claim was denied. Now, I'm stuck with this "expensive junk", as you put it.
Would you recommend adding one of your EverEden latex toppers to that mattress to get a little softer feel?
Hi Adam, Latex is the best material available. Anything you add it to, improves. Not only will the EverEden 2" of soft Talalay latex topper make your mattress softer, that comfort won't change over the years.
Also, it will insulate you from the way memory foam sleeps hot and provide a sleeping surface where you can easily change position. We have sold many latex toppers to Tempurpedic users. Many report that flipping the mattress first, and then adding the topper, produces a better result.
I suggest trying it on top and then on the flip side...using it in whichever way produces the best feel for you.
Here is a link to the EverEden all natural latex toppers.
We just now are trying a Temperpedic bed-Luxe cloud for husband and a Flex Breeze for me.
I have had a horrible time getting used to it-myself-and still suffering from being too hot with my night sweats AND waking up every day with back pain on entire back.
The "breeze" brand is supposed to be better for that and supposed to "wick away" the heat-not sure it is.
Now we are in situation where the only thing we are told we can do is exchange for a different Temperpedic model-we've had them about 25 days.
Our sister in law bought the latex by Bliss and loves it. We are sad and frustrated-don't know what to do.
What product do you recommend for dealing with night sweats?
Thanks, Candace and Richard
Hi Candace and Richard,
Memory foam...the main product in a Tempurpedic and introduced by Tempurpedic about 20 years ago, has proven itself to be the absolute worst upholstery material ever invented for this purpose.
You bought into the sales hype and all the BS that the salespeople spew.
Memory foam is the only upholstery material that is temperature sensitive. This means that as it warms from the body heat you give off, it softens and you sink into it.
It takes your body's heat and reflects it back to you, making you hot. And, the loss of support from softening is terrible for anyone with a pre-existing back problem.
If you have a back problem, of which you are unaware, memory foam will make you aware of it.
If you don't have a back problem and sleep on memory foam long enough, you will develop a back problem.
And, as if all that weren't bad enough, there's more. Memory foam consists of 61 different chemicals...some of which, are toxic.
It off gasses the toxic chemicals from which it's made and presents a health hazard to every living being in your home.
Headache is the most common negative side effect of this. It also attacks your respiratory system...terrible for anyone with asthma, or any other sort of breathing problem.
The worst negative side effect, that I've had reported to me, is bleeding sinuses.
My recommendation is to get rid of it, as it is nothing more than expensive junk, and stay away from memory foam all together.
Your sister-in-law bought a latex mattress.
Latex is and has been thee best upholstery material for the last 100 years....most comfortable, most supportive, longest lasting and 100% safe...safe enough for a baby to ingest.
The Pure Bliss is Natural Talalay Latex. "Natural" being a term used for blended latex...30% natural and 70% synthetic.
Synthetic latex is a molecular clone of all natural latex and is used to maintain a consistent final result.
"All Natural" latex is 100% latex. And as with other natural products, there is some slight variation in the way each batch feels....or looks, if you're talking about grains of wood for the same type of tree...for instance.
The only latex to be careful not to buy, are those imported from China....known for adding clay, which can still be called all natural, but reduces the comfort and durability of the latex.
THIS, is where you get cheap latex. Latex, otherwise, is expensive because it's expensive to make...as opposed to memory foam, which is cheap to make and expensive to hype...which is what you paid for.
Latex sleeps cool. It's made in a mold with lots of pins. The end result in the finished product are holes where the pins had been. These holes channel your body heat away from you.
We do not and will not sell memory foam mattresses. Instead, we carry a number of line of latex mattress...Including Pure Talalay Bliss...and hybrid mattresses with coils upholstered with latex.
