Very Happy With IKEA Sultan Edsele
(N Miami Beach, FL)
We’ve had Ikea’s Sultan Edsele 60 days now and we love it. The comfort far exceeds our expectations. The Edsele is a LATEX mattress (85% natural Dunlop). We’ve previously only owned innerspring mattresses so latex is a new experience for us. We are so happy with latex, we will never buy innerspring again. (1) Latex provides “motion isolation” – the movement of one person doesn’t transfer across the bed waking up the other person.
So when one of us is having a fidgety night, we are not disturbing the other person. (2) The Edsele is described as “firm” and even though my husband and I usually like different firmness, it's working for both of us. It took about 7 days to adjust to it and Ikea actually recommends 30 days. We never wake up with back pain, no matter how long we stay in bed.
On innerspring mattresses, we usually got lower back pain after 8 hours or so. (3) No odor or “gassing off”. I’ve read that synthetic latex can have an odor problem, however, the Edsele mattress is mostly natural latex. It is the cheaper type (Dunlop vs talalay) but we are very happy with it. (4) Price at Ikea is about half what you will find for other brands of Dunlop Natural Latex. In sum: we like the Edsele so much, we plan to buy another one for our vacation apartment.
