The Ultimate Dreams Total Latex from Dreamfoam Bedding is one of the best latex mattresses that we can recommend and there are many reasons for it. If you don’t know already, latex is arguably the best material that can be used in the construction of a mattress. It conforms to the body very well just like memory foam but without the “sinking” feeling. It is the best option for pressure relief and it is also very supportive.
A latex mattress is also the most durable type of mattress as well as the most flexible. It can last for decades with proper care and it is naturally hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant. It is, however, an expensive material. But with all the benefits that you can get from it as well as the potential to last for a very long time without issues, the steep price is well worth it.
The Ultimate Dreams Total Latex is a 10″ all-latex mattress. The comfort layer is made of 3″ Blended Talalay latex and the support layer is a 6″ Blended Talalay or Natural Dunlop. The cover is made from Bamboo and it also uses organic wool. Organic wool is a great material and it is used to meet federal fire retardant guidelines without using harsh chemicals.
The mattress is fully customizable. You can choose the firmness level of both the comfort layer and support layer before purchasing so that you can have a mattress that you can be comfortable with.
As for the mattress size, it comes in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King and California King.
Pros – Special Features
- Fully Customizable
The best feature of this mattress, aside from being an all-latex mattress, is that you can fully customize it to your liking. Once you purchase it, you can choose the firmness level of both the comfort layer and the support layer before being delivered. Don’t worry if you don’t know anything about ILDs, densities and other technical details because you will be properly guided by Dreamfoam Bedding’s excellent customer support.
Once you have it but you are not satisfied with the firmness, the comfort layer can be exchanged for a different ILD. However, do take note that the support layer can’t be exchanged.
- Durability and Longevity
Latex is the most durable material that can be used in a mattress. It can outlast memory foam and regular polyfoam. The Ultimate Dreams Total Latex uses latex in both the comfort layer and the support layer so you can and should expect that it will be very durable and that it will last a long time.
- Excellent Comfort and Support
Latex is excellent in providing comfort and pressure relief. Add to that the fully customizable feature and you will get the best in terms of comfort. Support is also better than most mattresses because of the latex core.
- Best Option for an Adjustable Bed
If you are planning on getting an adjustable bed, the Total Latex is the best option. Latex is very durable and flexible so it can withstand the compression that happens whenever you adjust your bed. It is also not very thick at only 10 inches so it can easily move with the adjustable bed. Lastly, latex is the best in providing pressure relief and if you couple that with the comfort that an adjustable bed can give, you will have the best possible bed that can give you the highest quality of sleep.
The most obvious disadvantage with this mattress is the price. Click here to check the price. Latex is an expensive material and the processing used in producing the latex foam, called Talalay, is also an expensive process. A mattress of this quality will usually be priced upwards of $3000 but the Ultimate Dreams Total Latex is significantly lower than that.
It is expensive initially but with the potential to last for a very long time and all the benefits that you will be getting, this mattress might turn out to be more cost effective in the long run.
- Limited Availability
Since this is a latex mattress and it is expensive, availability is limited.
- Very Heavy
It is very heavy so changing sheets and rotating the mattress can be hard. It might require 2 persons to make the changing of sheets and rotating easier. Also, if you are going to be moving to another house and you want to bring the mattress with you, it will be almost impossible to move it by yourself.
The Ultimate Dreams Total Latex is a mattress that can be used by anyone because it can be customized. It doesn’t matter what type of sleeper you are; back, stomach or side. It is best used as your main mattress because it is quite expensive for a guest room or for children and teens as they may outgrow the mattress.
Dreamfoam Bedding is a reputable brand with great customer support and high quality mattresses. We highly recommend this mattress because of all the benefits and features that you will get. Even though it is expensive, we think that the price is justified because of the quality of the materials used and its potential to last for a very long time without issues and it also comes with a 20 year warranty.
