Latex Mattresses

Recommended Posts

Your Sleep Perfect is full-latex topper, it is a combination mattress. If its full latex mattress cannot be so cheap. I just wonder how thick is the topper? Is it better than the Dunlopillo New Duchess? Price about the same.

divineparadise,

I seriously don really know about the comparison with those of Dunlopillo. According to the sales exec, its full latex lah..

Me being an impulse buyer, with rather limited budget, just think it is quite ok... I just say am looking for pocket spring, latex (she claimed its full latex).

After lying down for a while, think its comfy, so just buy coz I knw I can't get something similar cheaper..

This is my so call "virgin" mattress purchase for my future own home...

I googled already - confirm your model its a combi of pocketed spring (maybe first 8 inches) + 2 inches full latex topper (hence not a full latex mattress). So good for you. You get the best of both worlds! And at a good price!

dexufto, I don't know leh but from marketing perceptive, when your competitors are offering something that you don't have in your product list, the CEO will just tell the kakia "look everybody is having tataley latex, we must have also, you go and design one model to have that"

Imagine dunlopillo's CEO and king koil CEO playing golf one day, dunlopillo's CEO says "look at me, we just launch this new tatalay bed, sales volume shoot up, this year bonus confirm kao kao! So do you have this latex series where all consumers are looking for?" If king koil dont have sure **** xia suay one. So next day, he sure go back and tell the kakias better do something about it. People have, i also must have. :P

If you notice no matter which bed brand you go to, confirm have spring, pocketed spring, memory foam, latex be it dunlop or tatalay process.

All of them doesn't want to lose market share so in order to stay competitive, you have, I also must have

Side track a bit, the latest ipad as well. Do you think RIM (blackberry), microsoft, asus, etc will just sit down and let apple makan all their market share? Very soon you will see the market flooded with something similar or better than ipad. Monkey see monkey do even it is not their strength in creating it. :D

Dr.Anarchy, I'm looking for a Latex Pillow Top / Pocketed Spring and has made a deposit for Omazz Ferrell in Robinsons.

Price i got for King mattress alone is $2299.

I've tried most of the brands except for Dunlopillo. Are the Latex Pillow Top/Pocketed Spring offered byu Dunlopillo better?

Btw, the deposit is claimed to be refundable by Robinsons' staff.

forgotten, good mah never sag but only 3 years i don't think it will shows any sign yet lah, what brand is that?

My one is natural latex mattress from Napure, Germany brand. I have asthma history, so we got the 100% natural latex one, which has allergen resistance. My hubby and I don't really bother about the brand, we just picked the one that we felt the most comfortable.

Con: our mattress is super heavy. It took at 3-4 movers to shift our mattress for the past 2 house movings. All the movers would curse & grumble about its weight to us LOL.

My hubby is very heavy one, some spring mattresses slanted sideway to his direction very badly until they felt very uncomfortable when we slept on them.

jclew,

have you been to omazz at park mall? i do notice that although omazz in robinson and at park mall are selling different models. Seriously the thing about tatalay latex is expensive and in order to push for sales, pocketed spring is used at the bottom then latex at the top to have the feeling. To me, no offense bro, its like taking a shortcut. To me, its very black and white, if i want latex, i go for full latex. If i can't afford tatalay, i settle with natural. if i want spring, i will look somewhere else.

Dunlopillo is okay lor. Ask yourself what you want. My recommendation as a layman is to choose either one of the system but not combination.

forgotten,

good man! I like people who are not chasing for brandings :P yah latex is very heavy. rubber mah but its good to hear after 3 yrs it is still going strong! For others, maybe can try napure as well! I'm very impress with Germans technology. I feel its better than US for most of the products I encounter.

Nope, I've not been to Park Mall, thinking of going down there one of these days. Read somewhere in other forums is that the Combi that is offered under Omazz in Robinsons is actually Lotus, since Omazz doesn't sell Latex/Spring. (U don't see that on their website)

This is making me skeptical. Also, the spring is bonnell spring system and I've read that this kinda system is cheap and outdated. Feelwise i think alright though.

So abit confused already.

bro, yah lor omazz is a subsidiary of lotus thats why there's a combi. Thats why in my initial post, i stated if want to choose, choose either one system not a combi for best result. combi sounds like cutting corners :P

Anyway if the one selling in robinsons is actually lotus, simple mah, just take a look at the inside. See if you can see a label with "Latex International" if dont have then its a dunlop process latex not tatalay.

I just went to furniture mall today and tried the Getha Transforme Full Latex. Feels comfortable and price is also good.

However, in general the dunlop process is not as good and they will sag after 5-7 years?

Good for you! I'm getting the transforme as well. Too bad I dont have 2K extra for Omazz or flobeds (tatalay process)

I can't comments on the sagging part but from most reviewers I seen in singaporebrides.com.my commented that it does sag between 5 - 10 years. Tatalay process is to correct the sag disadvantage, making it last beyond 15 years.

You got to read up on both process than its easier, i extracted this

Dunlop and Talalay are types of latex processing, not types of latex. The Dunlop process has been around for many decades, while Talalay is newer. Both 100% natural latex and blended latex can be made using either process.

For the Talalay process, a tiny amount of latex is poured into the mold. Air is extracted to evenly distribute the foam liquid inside the mold which creates a consistent round, open cell structure. The mattress core is flash frozen to lock the cell structure in place and to prevent the particles from settling.

For the Dunlop process, the molds are fully filled, air is not extracted, and there is no flash freezing.

The result is that Talalay processed latex is more airy, less dense / firm and lighter (though still heavy) than Dunlop processed latex.

That will explain why dunlop process will feel slightly hotter when you sleep on it. To me it is not a concern as its better than Memory foam and I have my fan and aircon. Till the day Singapore hit a temperature of 36 degree than worry

Have you bought your Transforme already? I'm thinking of checking out the price if I get from JB. Might be cheaper and maybe not.

Also, the Sales guy from Getha told me that there will be an exhibition end-Aug @ Expo and more discount will be given.

(He actually recommended me to wait, nice guy)

have not bought mine. I'm thinking of checking from JB as well but give up the idea as I know the bed is very very heavy, and don't want any damage so im getting it locally. If you are checking, if you dont mind can you update me when you have the price? if the saving is dramatic, i may want to reconsider my decision.

end aug got promo ah steady i wait till then thanks for the update!

Ok, I'll check it out and let u know.

By the way, Dunlop Process is said to produce more durable mattresses. So, how does this compare to talalay?? Meaning can tahan kids jumping on them more? Also, you do not mind the bed sagging after 5-10 yrs?

wah how come my post went over to hwz anyway i know who is he and which company he comes from. Consumers and readers must open eye big big.

I'm not condemning/promoting any brands over here

Is dunlop process more lasting? hmm i dont know leh but from other people who have it for more than 5 years on the average said it did sag. How much of sagging, I don't know. For myself, I forecast, it should take a minimum of 5 years and a lifespan of about 10 years to sleep on it.

Kids jumping on the bed, hmm i dont know as well cause i doubt you will let your kid jump on your bed? im sure he/she will be cane haha

End of the day, there's only 2 process as of now for making latex mattresses, choose one of it and then see which brand you prefer
