I am comparing the Pure Latex Bliss mattress at Ergo in Berkeley and the Nest Organics line at Nest Bedding in Berkeley. Can anyone tell me the difference between the types of latex they use? The Pure Latex Bliss is more expensive than the latex beds at Nest Bedding.
The difference between Nest Organics and Pure Latex Bliss is difficult to compare because Nest Bedding has a few models and PLB has many. Despite the post by Peter, Nest Organics mattresses are far superior to a Simmons Beautyrest. First, they are made with certified organic cotton, certified organic wool and Oeko Tek certified latex. The latex is socked and zoned. The coils are zoned as well. Beautyrest uses poly fabrics, regular non-zoned coils and inferior latex.
As for Pure Latex Bliss, they are generally more expensive and usually don't have organic cotton or organic wool, and usually use something other than an organic material to make them fire retardant.

I can give you a bit of information about the Pure Latex Bliss product, but they have over 20 models so I'd need to know the model in which you have an interest. As for the Nest Organics bed, don't the salespeople there have the specifications for you? Since it's their line at their own store I'd hope that they would provide that up front.
Reply with the PLB model and at least I can provide some information on that for you.

There are two ways to process latex rubber besides all natural and synthetic there is Dunlop and Talalay processes. Dunlop and Talalay can both be made from the all natural form and synthetic form. They both have their place in the construction of mattresses. 95% of all Talaly latex is synthetic blended latex.
Making latex mattresses is a art form in of it's self. This is why I recommend all natural latex made with the Dunlop process and if I am going to use Talalay, I use it sparingly in the pillow top. From my experience customers bottom out on Talalay when you don't use enough Dunlop for support.
To answer your question, The Nest Organic...even the most expensive, is an individually pocketed coil mattress with a few inches of Dunlop latex on top. Pure LatexBLISS is 100% Talalay Latex. The Talalay process is more costly than the Dunlop process, which includes an extra "freezing" step that suspends the particles, making for a more supple finished product. The difference in price is due to the fact that it is a much better and much more expensively made product. Frankly, there is no comparison. If you prefer the Nest, you can buy a Simmons Beautyrest (individually pocketed coil) mattress, add the better Talalay latex to that and spend less to boot.
