Finally, the Best

Savvy Rest Serenity Pillowtop

Over the last 20 years we have owned Sealy, Simmons, Stearns & Foster, Kingsdown. The last was a Tempur-Pedic which seemed at first to answer all the other brands' woes. Yet, off-gassing aggravated my wife's asthma, we sank into the mattress so deep that my wife's breathing was restricted causing her to snore. It was hot, turning over was a chore and the bed was very difficult to make up because of its weight.
Though Saavy Rest's home office is in our town, we never gave latex a second thought until last spring. We had an incredible sales person (John McMullen) who let us try every configuration of support and firmness (they are different) for both Dunlop and Talalay. We liked the all natural materials and no off-gassing. After several visits to determine the configuration of the layers, and after one change out, we eventually chose all Dunlap: firm bottom, soft middle, medium top layer with a Talalay pillowtop. By the way, the company has replaced Talalay suppliers so there was no vanilla smell that were the subject of some complaints.
This mattress assembly is nothing like any other. Expensive, Yes. Yet, the most comfortable and odor free mattress assembly we ever have had. It is easier than most modern mattresses to make up, my wife breaths better in it, there is no sinking and it is a breeze to enter and exit. We purchased the mattress when they ran a special for the organic mattress pad, sheets and pillows but likely will replace the mattress pad with another brand when the time comes.

Good exchange policy for layers, though living in the same town as the company HQ made exchange easy.-no shipping issues. Helpful staff at company store. High quality materials, no off-gassing, soft but supportive comfort, and easier than Tempur-Pedic and other brands to make up. Sheets fit well on the bed. I can say we have been the happiest with Saavy Rest.
We believe, this mattress system is all it is cracked up to be. We have not investigated the newest models in 2014, but it it safe to say that none is perfect. If care is taken in selection, this is as close as it gets in the "mattress world." As Goldilocks would say, " Not to hot, not too soft, not too hard, not too heavy, not too smelly, not to grabby--just right. I think I will sleep here."


This is not a mattress system for everyone. Cost is the biggest hurdle, but there is something in the addage, "You get what you pay for." Care is needed in handling the latex layers, if that becomes necessary. They tear easily if mishandled. Durability is unknown, as we have owned the mattress less than a year. Be sure to test layer configurartion, and don't be afraid to test all configurations of Dunlop and Talalay in a retail store. Those who do not live in Charlottesville, like us, face shipping issues with exchanges of layers. Dunlop affords support and Talalay offers softness. Be diligent to mix and match to suit your neeeds and desires. Internet ordering may prove difficult though not impossible if the customer does research and discusses issues with the sales staff at Saavy Rest HQ before buying.

Englander Nature's Finest Organic

After having a 'foam rubber' mattress for many years, we decided to purchase a more natural mattress. In this case, the mattress is made with bamboo materials. Unfortunately, our mistake was in not inspecting the 'low profile' on which the mattress rests. After requesting relief from the constant noises exhibited by the low profile pieces for four months--both from Mattress Gallery and the manufacturer--we removed both pieces this weekend. After receiving no assistance on the 'warranty,' we dismantled the low profile pieces only to learn the construction was piecemeal and the cheapest of materials. Many small pieces of cheap wood were stapled together to form the 'base' and covered with cardboard. Basically, all the small pieces were contriving to make noise any time someone moved. Lesson learned--Englander uses very cheap materials. We expect the mattress to collapse at any time now that we've seen the 'quality' of construction.

The vinyasa mattress has absolutely changed my life. A friend in Florida had a mattress from this company, so I was lucky enough to test it out there, and it was BEYOND worth going through the effort to ship one to my home in Pennsylvania. The mattress is firm enough to be supportive but also yields to certain pressure points so you feel it working for you. I wake up refreshed every am and can't imagine life without it. Also - the company was an absolute pleasure to deal with and I cannot recommend them more highly as far as their costumer relations go!
