As I read articles about all natural latex mattresses (or any mattress for that matter), I am amazed at how many of the “experts” suggest that you lie down on the mattress in the showroom to make your decision. If you slept in a warm, crowded showroom for 10 minutes at a time, this would be a good suggestion. My question is — Who sleeps like that?
The article Choose your new mattress with yourself in mind suggests not to be afraid to try a new mattress in the showroom. I’m sorry, but I have to disagree with that. The only way to find out if an all natural latex mattress (or any mattress) is right for you is to try it for an extended period (at least 180 days) in your own home. If you don’t like it, you should be able to return it and get your money back. A retailer may charge you a return fee (look for $75 or less) to help defray shipping costs, but that’s minimal compared to the money you could be out if you get stuck with a mattress that you don’t like.
An important note: Be sure to read the fine print and don’t go for a store credit or comfort guarantee. These both mean that if a mattress doesn’t work for you that you don’t get your money back but have to choose a different mattress from the same store. I have seen many people lose a lot of money and still not get the mattress they want with one of these bad options.
