Latex Mattress ComparisonsSee how our latex mattresses compare to the other online brands.
Before I get started on the latex mattress comparisons I thinks it's important for you to know that most of the latex mattresses you will find on Amazon are NOT the same thing that we make here. Our mattresses are built to last and without the use of chemically treated fire barriers. There simply is no weak component in our designs. That cannot be said for brands like "Ultimate Dreams" or "Invigo Fresh" or even "Sleep Innovations". All have an extremely weak product design flaw, the use of poly foam. Ultimate Dreams has it not only in the quilted cover but also uses convoluted foam, something we found out years ago has a major durability issue, not to mention the polyfoam base core. Been there, done that, left it behind a long time ago. I have nothing against these companies and I'm sure the individuals are good people, it's just that with my 36 years in mattress manufacturing believe it or not I can see into the future in regards to mattress durability.
Many people have asked us if we manufacture the Ultimate Dreams Brand by DreamFoam Bedding because we are both located in Phoenix, AZ. The answer is absolutely NO!!! We only use production first quality materials. We do not buy imperfect and factory seconds of latex materials or otherwise in any of our products. The confusion has been caused by them using the EXACT same fabric we use in our best sellers. Out of the thousands to choose from this seems a little obvious in their intent. They also use the exact same descriptions we have been using for over a decade like "Ultra Plush Latex Mattress with Bamboo Cover" in what seems to be an attempt to trick customers searching for our models to their website instead. I don't blame them for trying to copy the best but our product designs and quality components have stood the test of time already. Furthermore, we are so confident in our quality of materials that we offer a full 60 day money back guarantee and also a 20 year Warranty, something not found and for good reason on their models. We also make it easy to facilitate exchanges or returns, good luck repackaging a mattress that has been roll-packed into a very small package. Their designs fall way short in quality and soon the floodgates will open with warranty issues for them which ultimately will give "real" latex mattresses a black eye. Choose your latex mattress company wisely!
**Update** After less than a year my suspicions are coming true and folks are having quality issues with this polyfoam/latex design. I'm sure if you look you will find independent reviews to validate this. I can only relay conversations on the phone I've had with several dissatisfied consumers.
15 Years Online Equals Experience and Trust
Our 15 years experience selling latex mattresses online comes with our initial trial and error testing and through the years we have eliminated the pitfalls that these new companies selling primarily on Amazon are yet to experience. The sad thing is the customers are going to start seeing the same things we found over a decade ago and what was to be a positive experience will quickly become a negative one once the sagging body impressions start to develop in those inferior designs. We refuse to compromise our quality just to hit a magic price point. Furthermore, did you know that Amazon takes 15% of the sale for itself? How much quality materials do you think these companies can put into the mattresses and still hit those price points and pay Amazon? The only thing good about these designs is the small amount of real latex used, that's about it. All of our product line is listed on Amazon but not sold by Amazon, it's sold directly by us. Sure we pay a small per click fee to Amazon but nowhere near 15%. Not even 1%. It's important to watch the video below because these Amazon beds are made in a very similar fashion as the Sealy latex mattress depicted next. It may take a couple years but the design flaws will appear as documented below.
Sealy Embody Latex Mattress Comparison
Lets start with the Sealy Embody 10" Latex Foam Mattress Set - Queen Item: 174-090 Sale Price: $1,529.95
Mattress Specs: Smooth-top quilted layer gives that extra bit of softness 3" SMART Latex Interlock System 7" HD (high density) laminated poly core Offers the perfect balance between cradling comfort and "push-back" support.
So to break it down, you only get 3" of nondescript latex and 7" of basic polyfoam with no specifics either. You get a non-quilted cover which means the use of chemically treated fire barriers directly under the thin cover and all for only $1529.95 from Home Shopping Network. In store prices can be much higher. See our Sealy Latex Mattress Video Review here -
How our Adjustable Ultra Plush Compares to the Sealy Embody
With our configuration you get 8 full inches of Talalay latex, not polyfoam but the real deal. You get a thick quilted zippered cover using natural wool as the fire barrier. Polyfoam is essentially plastic so which do you think will last longer, plastic or latex rubber? Our price $1195 or $1395 for an all natural upgrade and comes in your choice of firmness levels. The better choice seems obvious. Other name brands offer a similar configuration with only 2 or 3" at best of real latex. The rest is just polyfoam, chemically treated fire barrier and simple cover design. If you get confused by their terminology in their descriptions then just ask them what they really mean. There is a hundred ways to disguise the use of poly-foam with verbiage.
Organic Latex Mattresses - Savvy Rest Serenity vs. Ours
I am constantly amused how well known mattress companies abuse the use of the term "organic" in their marketing. Let me be quite clear "All Natural" does not make it "Organic"! Seems very little is actually organic these days. See the specs below and be your own judge:
The Serenity is made of three 3½ layers of all-natural (not organic)Dunlop and/or Talalay natural (again not organic) latex, in personalized combinations of Soft, Medium and/or Firm. The sturdy organic cotton casing has organic wool batting quilted inside. The wool fill promotes a cooler, drier environment and more comfortable sleep. The Savvy Rest Organic casing closes with a strong brass zipper.
Customized firmness for each individual Customized on each side for couples (Queen, King, California King only) Custom sizes available, any dimension or shape Place on rigid, slatted foundation or platform bed Total height: 10½
So analyzing these specs it proves that less than 5% of the mattress is actually organic materials and that would be the organic wool batting and casing. Our Organic Mattress on the other hand uses over 95% Certified Organic Materials (Latex) in our construction starting with the 6 inch latex core and 2 or 3" latex topper. Our casing is also organic cotton. Our price for a Queen size is $1695, the Savvy Rest Serenity model is $2439 per their website. So the choice is 95% organic for $1695 or 5% organic for $2439, again the choice seems obvious. Our design is also configurable in soft, medium or firm for each person.
What About PlushBeds?
The same can be said for PlushBeds. Here's their advertising online - PlushBeds Organic Latex www.plushbeds.com/ 145 reviews for plushbeds.com $1000 Off Organic Latex Mattresses.
The problem with this is that the bed is not organic at all. Just like the Savvy bed it's only the small amount of organic cotton fabric used in the cover that is organic. Why call it organic if it's not? Trickery just to get you to the website? You be the judge.
We are not saying there is anything wrong with natural latex in fact most of our mattresses sold are natural latex. What we are saying is call them what they are - Natural Latex Mattresses - Not Organic Latex Mattresses.
My other favorite from Plushbeds is their statement - No Glue or Glued Layers. I find that to be a complete lie or they have no clue what it is they are selling. Talalay latex does not come in King size. Anything King size must either be in two pieces (twinXL), which according to their website is one layer only, and that can only mean that two pieces HAVE been glued together. Furthermore, let's talk about California King size. Cal. Kings are 84" long so if all latex molds are only 80" long ,which they are, how the hell can you make Cal. King without glue? Come on people, all I'm asking for is a little truth in advertising.
If You Are Paying For An Organic Latex Mattress You Should Get An Organic Latex Mattress
We see a lot of misleading advertising when it comes to Organic latex mattresses. All natural is NOT Certified Organic, it's all natural which means it has NOT been tested to the GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard). When we say Organic Latex we mean it. The latex has official GOLS certification stickers right on the cores so you know exactly what you are getting. If anyone says they use organic latex I say make them prove it, show me the decals of certification. Simply wrapping a natural latex core in organic fabric does not make the latex organic so make sure you get what you are paying for. Some of these companies are misleading consumers on this main component of a true organic latex mattress. Always, always ask "is the latex itself truly GOLS certified or is it just the thin cloth surrounding it? I know of several companies selling Queen Organic mattresses in the 5 grand range that withhold the truth about the latex they are using.
So how can we sell our latex mattresses for so much less than our competition? Answer - experience, overhead, relationships with our suppliers and buying power. Our suppliers know our commitment to the latex mattress industry and do everything possible to insure our success because our success is their success. We don't offer hundreds of different models and styles. We keep it basic and affordable. Our main objective here at Arizona Premium Mattress is to reduce bedroom toxins but at a price most folks can afford. With the knowledge we have of the direction the mattress industry is headed, we feel it's our duty to offer a safer and more eco friendly alternative to what's become the default.
