As you may know, we use two densities of latex in our mattresses: Medium and Firm. Please note that we do not use a soft layer of latex. With our design using three, three-inch layers of latex, we found it to not perform well for most people. In other applications, a soft layer can be a good option. We have reconfigured our Soft mattress so that it can accommodate a wider range of body types. And, it's still relatively soft.

Latex is also eco-friendly and sustainable. Most latex mattresses are not made from a single block of foam. Instead, they are formed from several layers of latex of varying thickness and density.
