Please help me decide between an innerspring with latex vs. an all latex mattress.
How do I know which is best for me?
Pure, All-Natural, Hypoallergenic Latex Foam is and has been the best upholstery material available for the past 100 years. All latex mattresses tend to be the longest lasting of any type of mattress.
An innerspring mattress provides pushback support against your spine, which no all foam mattress can do.
As we age, the discs between the vertebrae in our spines wear.
It's at this point that the support from an innerspring mattress becomes important.
Having a desk job, where you spend a lot of time sitting can make that age younger.
Also, damage to the back due to accidents and/or physically demanding sports can make this type of mattress necessary. That said, after the age of 50, it's a good bet that this type of mattress is necessary.
The best of these mattresses is the Natura of Canada Greenspring, with the Ultra Plush model being the most comfortable...that line of mattresses, shown here.
