Jeanie, My husband and I purchased the Rainforest bed to take with us to Brazil where we will be living for the next three years while my husband is on an expat work assignment. It, along with all our belongings, was shipped down here on an ocean freighter which takes 6 weeks. In the meantime we had to rent furniture and the bed we were given was a wooden slat frame with a thin mattress over it; it was hard and uncomfortable.
Finally our Rainforest arrived. We didn’t know what to expect as it was shipped here in it’s original box, unopened. The first time we lay down on it, we just looked at each other and said “aahh”; it was soft yet supportive. It wasn’t bouncy. It was quiet. We LOVE it! We sleep so well on it. It is a pleasure to slide into Bed at night; you settle in and the comfort just envelops you.
We had reservations about ordering an expensive mattress sight unseen over the phone but the people who helped us at TheNaturalBedStore.com provided all the information we needed and explained how the various layers could be configured to meet individual preferences. we explained how the various layers could be configured to meet individual preferences. We wanted an organic product after doing our research and this company had the best products on the market. We would highly recommend the Rainforest bed to anyone looking for a high quality, organic mattress set. (We also bought the organic wool pillows which are nice but a bit heavy…we may look into getting the latex ones in the future.
