How to Choose the Top Layer of Your Mattress

February 04, 2019 2 min read

If you’ve read our other blogs, you know you need a mattress with multiple layers for the best night’s sleep. But with all the options out there, it’s hard to figure out which mattress has the perfect layers for you.

And the hardest layer to choose for is the top layer. After all, you want the layer you’re going to sleep on night after night to produce excellent sleep.

For a quick tip, here’s the best overall choice for the top layer of your mattress: natural latex.

Natural latex increases the longevity of the bottom layers of your mattress because it is the most durable mattress material. It also provides the spring that a mattress needs, and gives your mattress a slight bounce, while still keeping the mattress firm.

So you’ll get a better night’s sleep — and save money in the long run. You’ll rest easy for more reasons than one.

Finding your ideal top layer is also something you learn by trial and error — so you should get a mattress that allows you to rearrange the layers. This way, you can ensure that your mattress is made of the highest quality material and that all the layers are arranged just the way you like them. The best example of a mattress that includes a natural latex layer and allows you to rearrange the layers is DLX.

So for the best feel and lifespan for your mattress, find a mattress that puts the natural latex layer on top of the middle layer, above all the memory foam layers. For examples, look to dealers like DLX that include a latex layer on top. And for the best results, you should find a mattress that has its layers separately manufactured, too. That way, the different layers of the mattress can support and complement one another.
