I have a Innomax Medallion mattress. It is constructed from bottom up as follows: 6" air mattress, 1" multi-zone high resilience convoluted foam, 1" (unknown material) moisture barrier, 1.5" 4lb memory foam, 1.5" 1 ILD talalay latex, 3" synthetic pillow top.
It is not fixing my back ache. My thoracic spine below my hips and shoulders. My spine is straighter and my back aches is less if I: 1) put a pillow under my ribs, and/or 2) remove the pillow top. Perhaps being closer to the latex is providing the upward force I need in my mid back. What do you say about getting rid of the pillow top, putting the HR foam underneath the air chamber, and adding 1" of dunlop on top of the 3" talalay/memory foam layer?
Is there a potential health problem (like mold) with no mattress cover and just sheets in between me and the latex? How much latex minimum on top of an air chamber? Thanks. Adam
The pieces to remove would be the pillowtop, the convoluted the memory foam. All of these are items are hurting your back.
Once you've removed these, decide what kind of surface feel you want and add the appropriate latex topper.
i.e. Dunlop for a firmer, more dense feel or Talalay for more comfort...either soft or medium.
With a bad back, be careful of going too soft. 1.5" of soft Talalay under 1.5" of Dunlop is a nice mix for firm comfort.
The toppers will come with a cover....so you won't be without. You never have to worry about mold or mildew with latex and you'll find that it sleeps cool.
Here is the link to the latex toppers.
