Latex Mattresses

Ok, you want to know about latex mattresses? I am about to potentially save you a lot of money. Here's the most important thing: If you don't like sleeping in hot beds, then don't buy one. That's about it. Everything about latex mattresses is good, except for that. Yes, they're heavy, but just get some mates to help you carry it. They don't harbour dust mites; they are unbelievably comfortable; they maintain their shape for decades; they don't get lumpy - but..they're DAMN hot. Boiling hot, in fact. It's the middle of winter here in Melbourne and gets to zero during the night, but I am covered only with a thin doona AND I have to have one limb hanging out most of the time. Just to keep cool enough to sleep. Oh yeah, I forgot, that's with a lambswool underblanket over the mattress to further insulate me from the heat.

God knows what it's going to be like in the summer...
