Latex mattresses are very heavy and can be quite awkward to move. Whereas innerspring mattresses have a rigid, easily movable structure, latex is flexible and, well, droopy! It is quite challenging for us to move a king- or queen-sized latex mattress without two or three strong individuals. Even then, it can be a challenge to grasp the mattress to move it without ripping the organic cotton and wool cover. If we were to ship your mattress completely assembled, the latex layers would shift and bunch up inside, making it necessary to unzip the casing and realign your latex layers anyway.
To prevent the bunching up of your layers, we ship our mattresses in separate parts: Your casing is shipped separately from your latex layers. Once your shipment has arrived, lay out the casing on the foundation or bed frame; align it; and unzip the top portion of the casing from the bottom portion of the casing. Begin layering the latex on the bottom of the casing until the layers are in the preferred order. Place the top of the casing over the latex and zip up the mattress. You will receive more detailed instructions with your shipment. If you feel you may be unable to assemble your mattress properly, please contact us for different shipping alternatives.
Each layer of dunlop natural latex can be ordered soft, medium, or firm. You can then decide whether you'd like solid layers of latex, or whether you'd like it split down the center to allow for different firmness on each side of the mattress. Many people prefer to place the softer layers of latex on the top with the firmer layers toward the bottom. But the options are endless, and it is entirely up to you! We recommend that customers choose layers softer than they might expect to like. Once you receive your mattress, if it feels too soft, you can alternate layers. Simply move the softer layers down in the mattress and move firmer layers up to discover your personal ideal in comfort and firmness level. For example, if you choose the following layers, soft pillowtop, soft first layer, medium second layer, medium third layer, and firm fourth layer, and the mattress feels too soft, simply flip-flop the first and second base mattress layers so you end up with : soft pillowtop, then medium, soft, medium and firm in the base mattress.

Some people wonder if the split in the latex can be felt. The good news is that we have constructed our organic mattress to have a seamless feel in the middle. Though you will notice the difference between a soft and a firm, there will certainly not be a hole or gap in the center of your bed. If you are concerned, you could choose a solid layer of latex for your top layer and then choose split layers for the bottom 2 layers.
All mattresses include a zipper on the bottom, offering you maximum flexibility. Since your mattress was designed by you, we think you should be able to change and adjust it too! Once you receive your organic mattress, the latex can be placed (in any firmness combination) into the organic cotton and wool cover, and zipped up.
