When shopping for a mattress, many people are on the prowl for things like "100% latex", "natural organic cotton", or "sustainable products." And, these are all amazing qualities in a mattress. But, another important element is the firmness level. To obtain the best quality sleep, you'll want to sleep on a mattress that provides you with the absolute best level of firmness for your personal preferences and needs. Eco Terra mattresses offer you a couple levels of firmness.
With Eco Terra mattresses, you can choose between medium-firm and medium firmness levels.
Both levels of firmness are crafted with one seamless 3" 100% natural latex Arpico layer.
ILD measures the level of softness or hardness the memory will be. It's measured by the amount of pounds of pressure required to indent a 4" thick piece of memory foam by 25%. ILD testing is performed by applying pressure on a space of 50 sq. inches. The required amount of pressure is then turned into weight. The ILD number you may notice on different mattresses is that weight.
You'll frequently see the ILD rating detailed in a range. For instance, you'll see a range like 10 - 12, instead of a single number. The reason for this is because ILD ratings can slightly vary depending on how conditioned the memory foam has been, or the environment it's been stored in before being tested. Humidity and moisture are a couple factors that could influence the measurement's slight variation, which is why a lot of retailers show the ILD rating in a range format. So, if a mattress comes with a 12 rating, this means it would take 12 lbs of pressure in order to indent the mattress by 25%.
When you have two available levels of firmness, it ensures there's an option for almost all sleep positions and body types. Responsive coils and buoyant latex relieve pressure points, and keep the spine in alignment.
Both the medium-firm and medium firmness level mattresses provide you with the same benefits:
The only way you’ll be able to understand an Eco Terra’s hybrid latex mattress’s revolutionary comfort is by sleeping on one yourself. Whether you prefer a medium mattress or a medium-firm mattress, you can enjoy a 90-night in-home trial to experience natural, quality sleep yourself.
