I purchased a king-size ZENHAVEN mattress and after three months, it has developed a crown/convex surface. What mattress would you recommend will not develop a crown or convex surface?

Hi Marisa -- Thanks for your question. Just to clarify, are you talking about a body impression on each side of the mattress with a ridge between the two impressions? Or are you talking about it being sloped downward all the way from the center of the mattress to each side? If the latter, this sounds like a very unusual occurrence. If the former, this is a very common situation with mattresses these days, though I'm rather surprised that it happened with the Zenhaven, especially so quickly, since Talalay latex is typically a very durable material. Either way, just as an FYI, this sounds like it could be a defect, in which case you may have a valid warranty claim on your hands.

One other question about the Zenhaven: Have you tried flipping it over and sleeping on the other side for a while? As we covered in our review of the Zenhaven, the difference in softness between the two sides is relatively small, and flipping a mattress is the best way to smooth out developing body impressions. Conversely, the lack of the ability to flip most mattresses is one of the things that has led to the increased in prevalence of body impressions in general.

Moving on to your other question about mattresses that would be less likely to have this problem. Here are a few that we have reviewed ourselves, that have some similar characteristics to the Zenhaven, and that we think should hold up well:

  • Avocado (this one is latex over pocketed coils with functional tufting, which helps avoid body impressions)
  • Nest Hybrid Latex (this one is also latex over pocketed coils but has a zip-off cover which would allow you to swap out the top latex layer if it ever broke down without having to replace the whole mattress)
  • Spindle (this one has a very similar construction to the Zenhaven, but uses Dunlop latex, which I would generally expect to hold up a bit better than the Talalay used in the Zenhaven, and like the Nest Latex Hybrid, you can swap or rearrange the layers if they ever show signs of body impressions)

There are also a few other similar options we have looked at that come to mind here, but for which we have not yet published our in-depth reviews. Those are the Winkbed Plus, the Brentwood Home Cedar, and the Helix Nightfall. Once those reviews are published, you'll be able to find them here on GoodBed using the links in the previous sentence. You can also like us on Facebook or subscribe to our YouTube channel to be notified when these reviews are published.

I hope that's helpful.
