We went to America's Mattress about a week ago and chose our replacement mattress. This time we went to the other extreme. Instead of the too soft Vera Wang latex Tranquility mattress, we went with the firmest Vera Wang latex Felicity to avoid the padding which we were not trusting to form a depression again.
However, looking at the tag when it was delivered today, I saw that there's even less latex percentage wise. Consumer Reports won't even rate mattresses because all the different companies create their own "recipe." You can't compare apples to apples. Therefore, if any salesperson tells you it's 100% latex, check the label. But you know what? At this point, I don't care anymore. I just hope it's comfortable enough and doesn't have a depression in it after two days. We'll see. It's supposed to have a 30 year garantee but who knows where the company will be then?
The Felicity mattress was delivered today by the same cheerful guys who delivered the Tranquility. They looked at the hilly mattress and said, "Oh, you've got a mountain in the middle, hunh?" He told us that they would be taking the mattress back to where it was made in Waipahu and find out who made it. Apparently the name of the person who made it is in the mattress. Interesting.
So we've got a new mattress... again. It seems like it's almost half the height of the other mattress and I'm feeling like the princess looking for the pea. Luckily, I've got a prince already sound asleep on the bed right now. But then again, he could sleep on the stone floor of a castle just as peacefully. I'm looking for a happy ending here.
