Latex mattresses are great. I personally sleep on one. It's 11 inches thick, and sits on a box spring and I love it. My latex mattress is now over 4 years pld and still in great shape.
Sofabed mattresses are almost always 4 inches thick. There is a good reason for that (See "About Mattress Thickness " link on the right). At 4 inches the differences between latex and urethane become small.
The first time I tried a latex sofa bed mattress, it was a disappointment. It was a very good mattress, and I knew I would hold up very well. Nevertheless, it was not significantly better than my urethane foam sofa bed mattresses.
Latex mattresses have two drawbacks.
- They are very expensive to make.
Latex foam costs me almost twice what a really good urethane does.
- They are allergenic.
Latex is a natural product. Basically it's the sap of rubber trees and contains lots of proteins. Many people have allergies to one or more of these proteins.
My competitors make a mattress with an 1-1/2 inch layer of latex foam, over a 2-1/2 urethane foam layer. They call it a latex mattress. My latex mattress is 100% natural gum latex. Of course mine costs more, but if you want latex, you've got it..
Is it worth it the money?
- My latex sofa bed mattress is probably the best you can buy.
- You are not likely to notice the difference.
- It is not great value.
- Even so; lots of people do buy them
