I am having trouble finding complete specifications on the "major" different brands of foam mattresses (visco or latex/other). Is there a web site that provides this info? I have gone to Company websites and consumer review websites, but the most complete information I have gathered, so far, is on the Tempur-Pedic, which is not surprising. I found a site with ILDs for several, but it appeared dated without the numbers for some major brands that are now offering foam mattresses.

These are the Specs I wish to compare:

Density - lbs per sq foot --- of ALL the layers of foam that comprise the mattress, not just the top layer.

ILD Rating (Indentation Load Deflection) or IFD (???)

Is Foam rated Highly Resilient (HR)? Y/N

Thanks in advance for any directions in finding this info.

I bought a Bragada that was suppose to be similiar to the TP Allura, and the foam seemed soft and unsupportive to me. I did not get the firmest model, but my impression was that it does not provide the same support as TP. I question all of the glowing reviews they get. Since they only take returns if you hassle them, I think I would look elsewhere.
