Step 1: Support Layer
Deciding what kind of support layer you want depends on if you want an all latex mattress or a hybrid as well as what kind of support you need.
Option 1: Quantum® Edge Elite Pocketed Coil
Quantum® Edge Elite is a pocketed coil unit that gives consistent support to the edge while actively responding to your body's natural movements. The Quantum® Edge Elite also has strategically placed comfort zones to help support the back, hips, and shoulders while helps to absorb your partner's movements.

Option 2: Dunlop and/or Talalay Latex
If you tend to prefer a more plush (soft) feeling for your sleeping surface, we recommend choosing Talalay, regardless of the firmness you choose. If you are looking for extra support, we typically recommend the Dunlop option. Regardless of which you choose, the Dunlop and Talalay Latex are two different processes but the process produces latex that is far more durable and comfortable over its usable life than any other mattress material.

Step 2: Comfort Layer
Determining the comfort layer for your mattress might seem confusing but it's actually quite easy. Just think about what kind of feel you enjoy when your sleeping as well as your sleeping position. Back and stomach sleepers typically enjoy a firmer feel where as side sleepers may want it a little softer. Sometimes you start out on your side and end up on your back or stomach so you may want something in between.
Option 1: Dunlop Latex
Dunlop latex offers firmer comfort and support, with firmness options ranging from soft to firm. Dunlop latex is Durable highly breathable, providing optimal temperature control throughout the year. It's open-cell structure promotes ventilation and helps reduce dust mites.
