Of course, a natural latex mattress might not be in your budget.
If that's the case, you could consider opting for a synthetic or hybrid latex mattress instead.
If you're not sure that latex is right for you at all, then you can consider any of the alternatives below.
Memory foam mattresses
Visco mattresses are characterised by their memory imprint.
When pressure is applied, the foam becomes softer and allows the body to form an imprint.
This allows for the foam to adapt perfectly to the contours of the body, which provides for great pressure relief, making memory foam great for orthopaedic purposes.
However, it also makes moving on the mattress quite difficult. This makes memory foam mattresses unsuitable for very restless sleepers.
Memory foam also tends to absorb more heat than other foams, resulting in an overall warmer sleeping climate.
Innerspring mattresses are both cooler and firmer than latex mattresses.
The space between the springs creates natural ventilation channels, increasing breathability. The resulting cooler sleeping climate makes spring mattresses more suitable for heavy sweaters.
Spring mattresses are also generally firmer and offer greater stability.
This makes them well-suited to heavier-weight sleepers or pure stomach and back sleepers.
You could also consider hybrid mattresses, which generally combine pocket springs with high-quality memory foam. These mattresses perfectly combine the best properties of both materials for a superior sleeping experience.
Cold foam mattresses
Cold foam mattresses are similar to latex mattresses in that they are very adaptable, recommended for orthopaedic purposes, and well-suited to restless sleepers.
They often have special comfort zones to enhance support and allow for optimal spinal alignment.
Cold foam is commonly found as the base foam in mattresses.
Gel foam mattresses
Gel foam mattresses offer a high degree of comfort, high point elasticity, and great breathability.
They are also well-suited to restless sleepers.
Gel foam is commonly found as an upper comfort layer in mattresses.
