What Is a Latex Mattress

Do you want to wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the day’s challenges? Try sleeping on our 100% pure latex mattress!
What is a natural latex mattress?
Latex is naturally produced by mother nature. Made from the sap of the rubber tree, Hevea Brasiliensis, latex mattress is naturally elastic. This elasticity is crucial for the ability of the mattress to mold itself perfectly according to the body shape, whatever the sleeping position. This enables the spine to be kept in its natural position, reducing excessive pressure on certain points of the body and ensuring healthy blood circulation during sleeping hours.
Latex mattress core
What are the main benefits of a natural latex mattress?
  • Natural origin. Latex is made from the rubber tree, Hevea Brasiliensis, and therefore free from harmful chemicals.
  • Progressive support. Latex feels comfortably soft at first touch and as you settle deeper in your mattress, it gives you full support. That's why latex is ideal for providing back support. It adapts to the body contours, keeping proper alignment of the spinal column.
  • Excellent pressure distribution for a good blood circulation.
  • Elastic, allowing you to move freely at night. Latex is made of millions of molecular springs, ensuring support in every point of your body.
  • Naturally anti-dust mite, anti‐microbial and anti‐bacterial and therefore, good for people with allergies.
  • Good breathability for a comfortable sleeping temperature & excellent moisture absorption. Latex has an open cell structure and has ventilation holes allowing you to sleep in a fresh environment.
  • High durability. Latex mattresses are known to last longer than mattresses made of other materials such as spring coil and PU foam.
What is the ideal firmness?
Many people with back pain think that a very firm mattress will help to relieve their pain. This is not true. What you need is not a rock hard mattress, but a mattress that is comfortable and firm enough to support your body. Here’s how to decide which mattress is best for you.
mattress too hard
Too Hard
Our bodies are not flat. When a mattress is too hard, you sleep on top of it and you get no support. All weight will be supported by two pressure points, resulting in bad blood circulation. If your mattress does not follow the contours of your body, then it is time to change your mattress.
mattress too soft
Too Soft
Sagging in the middle at the heaviest part of your body is what you get if your mattress is old or of low quality. Such mattress is very bad for your back because it does not give the support that your body needs. If your mattress shows signs of sagging, we recommend you to change your mattress immediately.
the right firmness
Just right
The right mattress gives you both comfort and support. It feels soft and comfortable at first touch, but as you sink deeper, it gives you full support, so that your spine is in the right position and your body pressure is evenly distributed. We call this progressive support. All of our mattresses provide the “just right” support. We use high-quality materials like 100% natural latex which mold perfectly to your body contours and are elastic at the same time.
Within the “just right” range, we have firm, medium and soft feels. Depending on your body weight and personal preference, we recommend the following:
  • < 60 kg: soft
  • 60‐90 kg: medium or firm
  • > 90 kg: firm
Besides weight, your height will also help determine your ideal mattress choice.
Try our mattresses and you’ll know what we mean by “just right”. At Heveya® Singapore, we make only quality mattresses that suit your needs best.
What are the health benefits of a good mattress?
To get a good night sleep, your mattress should support your body so that your spine is properly aligned and can recuperate during the night. The support and contouring help to distribute your body weight evenly. Thus, pressure points are reduced significantly and your blood circulation is improved. Remember, a good blood circulation is vital for a good health.
So the importance of a good and supportive mattress cannot be underestimated. It will improve the quality of your life.
With Heveya®, you can rest assured that you are buying a quality mattress that will help you sleep well throughout the night. A good night sleep is just a click away. Get your latex mattress now!
