Royal Pedic Latex Mattress Review

Royal Pedic Latex MattressFirst, a quick trivia question: What do the following celebrities have in common?

Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, Jr., and Wilt Chamberlain

Answer: They all demanded Royal Pedic mattresses. (JFK actually insisted on a Royal Pedic mattress wherever he went!)

To understand the appeal of these mattresses, you have to know a little about the history of the company. The founder of Royal Pedic started out making mattresses for the Royal Family in England, and he continued making mattresses fit for kings and queens when he started his own company in the United States.

All Royal Pedic mattresses are custom-made, hand-crafted, and hand-tufted with precision and care. This ensures that they will not break down, sag, or lose their shape for many years. (By the way, they come with a 10-year warranty.)

As an allergy sufferer, I’ve always been curious about latex mattress because dust mites cannot live inside latex. Most cotton mattresses provide a warm nest for dust mites, and memory foam mattresses, while inhospitable to dust mites, often off-gas irritating chemicals. (The foam is made from petrochemicals).

It seems, then, that the latex mattress would be perfect for people with allergies. Latex is naturally hypoallergenic, antibacterial, and chemical-free. But are latex mattresses comfortable? You bet!

I had the opportunity to try out a Royal Pedic latex mattress not long ago, and it was extremely comfortable. The supple latex comforms to your body, but it doesn’t swallow you like memory foam. Wrapped in hand-tufted natural cotton, the latex core remains firm – and I like a firm mattress since I have back problems. (If you like a softer mattress, you can always add a Royal Pedic pillowtop pad.)

If you have back problems as well, you have to try this mattress! It features seven different zones of latex; the seven zones vary in firmness and match the seven zones of your body to provide ideal ergonomic support. It’s like a built-in lumbar support system that will keep your spine straight and relaxed all night. Without hesitation, I give the Royal Pedic latex mattress five out of five starts. This is the ultimate mattress for those who suffer from allergies or chronic back pain.
