All About Latex Mattresses

Does “uplifting” and “floating on a cloud” sound good to you when you dream of the perfect night’s sleep? Well, that’s exactly how our satisfied customers describe their latex rubber beds. From blissful personal experience, we can report that a full latex bed gives you more durability, more pressure relief, better blood flow, and sleeps cooler than memory foam … the benefits go on and on.

In fact, with a 100% all-natural latex bed, you can count the benefits instead of sheep every night! No springs. No foam. It’s literally one giant chunk of pressure-relieving latex rubber with a knit cover over the top of it. And don’t forget the health & wellness benefits of all-latex mattresses: they’re antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, and dust-mite resistant. Tons of customers who have spent their whole lives struggling with mattress allergy problems have finally found relief by switching to latex.





No mattress on the market today gets such consistently high marks from buyers for reducing back pain, eliminating allergy attacks, holding shape over time, and combining a firm surface with a soft feel as latex rubber.

But don’t just take our word for it–swing by one of our convenient Mattress World Northwest Oregon locations in downtown Portland, Canby, Salem, Clackamas, Wilsonville, Beaverton, Gresham, Happy Valley and more to test out the best latex mattress brands for yourself, such as Latex USA or, coming soon, OMI’s line of fully organic latex mattresses.

Shape retention and back support with latex

Latex is made from rubber trees. Latex rubber is an uplifting support system. Rubber is designed to give you proper spinal alignment and dramatically reduces pressure points, no matter what position you sleep in.

Latex rubber is arguably the most durable material found in the mattress market. Because there is no quilting (polyurethane foam) on the top layer to separate you from the latex, this surface will conform more evenly to the shape of your body. This increases the support to the lumbar region of your back and all the way up to your neck, while also reducing pressure points. At the same time, latex resists the amount of body impression created in the mattress over time, making you happier and comfortable with the bed much longer.

Latex used in mattresses is made in 2 ways:

  1. Dunlop method: Traditional manufacturing process that creates a denser and more elastic latex ideal for maximum support and firmness.
  2. Talalay method: A newer process that creates latex material of a slightly lower density and weight, preferable for those who desire a more soft and body-conforming sleeping surface.

The latex used for mattresses can be natural (extracted from the sap of the rubber tree), synthetic or a blend of the two.

Latex stimulates health and well-being

Latex outperforms traditional mattresses when it comes to overall health benefits. Latex can promote the healing process of many injuries, such as bulging or herniated discs in the back or neck. Many doctors recommend latex for people who suffer from fibromyalgia, arthritis, insomnia, allergies, and many other medical conditions.
