I am in the process of putting together a bed, but am looking for a particular frame which may take awhile. I have purchased a nice 360' topper cover that I'm going to put a 3" blended talalay topper in. What I'm wondering is at 3" and me being 6' 200 lbs what compression comfort level there'd be with the extra firm so I could sleep on it while working on this project, then later just use that layer as part of the core. Would I bottom out, would it be rock hard? Just wondering, otherwise if I purchase the foam for comfort layer I'd go with around 32 ild and put either a dunlop base or hr 3.0 lb poly foam. Thanks.

It is hard to tell but you will probably bottom out if you sleep on your side.  Any kind of padding underneath would help this.  Even old blankets.  Mattdud
