Bad mattress, misleading natural latex
I and my whole family were using 100% natural latex mattress in Vietnam for 20 years, and when moved to Australia i bought their mattress and thought it was 100% natural latex reading the website and their responses to reviews. But the quality was totally different, this latex is super light, real latex is heavy duty 50kg-100kg and only 10cm-15cm height. Real latex is firm and supportive, this latex i don't know what they put in it, soft and shrink, me and my husband body were in pain sleeping in it, and it is hot to sleep in too. The good thing is they came with the bed base. I wrote this review after 5 years of using this bed cause we have no option.
What a great product
We decided it was time to retire our old sealy to the spare room and get something new. A good friend recommended that we look as latex as it was a natural product and had many benefits over innerspring. After doing a bit of research and reaching out to a few companies that specialise in latex we found Latex Bedding Company in Sydney who came out tops with pricing and we just felt very comfortable when conversing with them, with a six month trial period and money back guarantee we decided to take the plunge and we bought a Monaco which is top o...f their range. As we stay near Coff’s Harbour we had’nt even tried the mattress but Dave was right with his assessment and we absolutely love this mattress and it certainly is not going back. We have subsequently arranged for another two queen mattresses for our son and daughter in Melbourne. Really happy with these great products from Belgium. Definitely worthy of a five star review.

From a mattress in a box to latex heaven!
My wife and I originally bought our first innerspring mattress in a box about eight years ago and over the past year started looking for a replacement as the current mattress was no longer providing the support we needed. We did a bit of research into latex and in particular to memory foam mattresses after seeing these on the internet during our search to replace our innerspring mattress. We visited local innerspring/memory foam and latex stores in Melbourne to compare and were very positively surprised with the health advantages and feel of na...tural latex. We furthered our research on the internet and found a few retailers around Australia, one that stood out after placing enquiries and chatting was Latexbeddingco in Sydney. They have a superior product made in Belgium, can change the support level as years go by and it cost less than buying a latex mattress in Melbourne even with the cartage from Sydney (the local mark ups for mattresses on average are horrendous) I am very happy with our new mattress and my wife especially is over the moon, she describes our new mattress as her heaven. Happy wife, happy life.

The right products and great service
Dave was very patient while we figured out what we needed - split queen Wimaflex beds with motorised slat bases and madrid mattresses. I was impressed that he didn't just push us to the most expensive option but helped us find the right choice.
Now that we have been using it for a month or so we are very happy and sleeping comfortably. Even when we encountered a minor hiccup associated with the delivery and assembly, Dave was terrific and went to quite a bit of trouble to sort out those wrinkles. First class!

Thank you thank you
Great advice great service great price great product
Purchased 2 latex king single toppers to put on our adjustable latex mattress beds
Bed was very good before being latex it was fine but always wondered if a bit more softness would be achieved as we get older more comfort is always better
And yes they do a big improvement
Arrived quickly put them straight on beds no smell no odours
The quality of products and the good old fashion service are second to none.
Just purchased another bed base and mattress, since the one I have got from them few years back has been most comfortable to sleep on, and without any signs of it wearing down or deteriorating.
The bamboo linen are also of fantastic quality.
Well what can I say, their products are not only designed but manufactured in Europe meeting their very high standards. And enviromentally friendly for good measure.
As for the most professional service, from the first "how can I h...
Perfect For Sore Back
I bought a bed from another company which was supposed to be a medium feel turns out is is like concrete to firm for my back. So did my research and found bedding co delivery was awesome 4 days and the laytex topper was definitely what was needed to soften the bed thankyou
A review 8 years in the making...
This review is a little bit long but I promise that it will be helpful if you are seriously looking at Latex Bedding Co for your next mattress.
So my story begins some 8 years ago. I had purchased a top-priced mattress from one of the major Australian bedding retailers (who shall go unnamed since they many of them operate largely in the same way). Within the first week, I knew the bed had something wrong with it. I woke up sweating (in Autumn) and with massive pain in my back which I had never experienced up until then. After checking out the...reviews on ProductReview (yes, too late), I saw that others were having the same problems. As I investigated further, I realised that many of these several thousand dollar mattresses are "designed" for marketing purposes only. A little bit of foam here, a little bit of gel topping there. No one from the company actually tests the design nor does any sleeping on them - they just rely on marketing to drive their sales. They can brush-off any bad feedback by just changing the model name so the online reviews are effectively buried. Release a new model, a new Frankenstein assembly of foams, springs and gel layers and the cycle can continue. It was a complete surprise to me that a several thousand dollar mattress had absolutely no thought put in for actual sleeping comfort. Understanding this, I went back to the retailer and asked them for a refund shortly after my purchase. As you can imagine, the store manager gave me a million-yard stare and the ol' "It'll take time to get used to" line. I was dismissed and told to go back and try the mattress for longer. Long story short, it didn't get better. Here I was lumped with an expensive, horrible mattress and when I went back some weeks later to the store on their advice, they didn't want to have anything to do with me ("You want a refund after sleeping on it for 60 days?? Ha!"). In an effort to limit my losses (and my pain), I started cautiously looking for an alternative mattress. There were lots of options available but which one was worth the risk? I had a work colleague recommend the Latex Bedding Co "Euro" mattress. I checked out the reviews on ProductReview and it looked promising. BUT, I thought, my last bed was a latex, so why should this be any better? Well, thankfully the salesperson (I am pretty sure it was Dave or Cliff, even back then) seemed honest and patient and was happy to explain all the differences. Aside from having no sense of sales pressure, you could tell they knew their product and stood by it. One important point they raised is that they don't use gimmicky gels and cheap foams which quickly degrade and cause the back-pain I was having. From them addressing all of these points, I bit the bullet and bought the Euro mattress along with their adjustable slat base. It was perfect from the first sleep and has been up until now. Over the last 8 or so years, my partner and I have been enjoying many nights of wonderful sleep. More recently, however, I started to get a bit restless. Even though I used the adjustable notches in the base to support my back, I felt I wasn't getting the same support as I once was. Eight years is a decent run for any mattress, I thought, so I started to look into getting a new one. In my search, I noted that the Latex Bedding Co. gave a 10 year warranty on their mattresses, so I decided to give them a call to see if they could help in some way.

Absolutely brilliant latex bed topper
After doing heaps of research online and making numerous phone calls, I finally got to speak with Dave from the Latex bedding company.
He explained about the Belgium latex topper and was extremely knowledgeable.
We received the topper and put it straight onto our bed and can honestly say that it’s the first time that I have had a comfortable sleep for a long time.
I have torn tendons in my shoulder and elbow causing lots of pain and it’s especially painful trying to sleep at night.
My husband and I both have problems with our backs as well and ...
Life Changing - Now sleep like I did years ago.
I had developed bad sleeping habits. Due manly to discomfort from hips and knees. I had bought a previous version of the latex topper and had been happy with topper. As our beds were very old we decided to buy new beds. Happy with the new bed very comfortable but I was still not sleeping well. So decided to replace the latex topper. Went back to the site of original purchase and bought the latex topper with the bamboo cover. Purchase was easy, product arrived promptly and in perfect condition. On arrival I was very happy with the quality of ...the latex topper and the bamboo topper cover. The bamboo cover is not like a normal polyester cover, it is thick and soft and so comfortable. The combination of both the latex topper and the bamboo cover makes for very comfortable sleeping. Soft and supporting, gently on the joints and make sound sleeping now achievable. I was worried that the bamboo topper cover would make it too hot but even in the heat of summer it has remained very comfortable. You would be silly to not look closely at this product. All my beds now have latex toppers and the family are all now good sleepers. Even the dogs now want to stay on the bed, looks like I'll be buying them toppers as well.
We are very happy
It is wonderful to have a firm mattress that we expect will stay firm for many years.
We found our latex mattress at the third store we visited. They had a good range, reasonably priced compared to other stores we'd tried, and service was excellent.
Also delivery and set-up by the team who delivered our mattress and base was fantastic.
Amazing! So impressed by the products and service.
The store was setup perfectly, extremely easy to navigate and find what we wanted. The range of products on offer was great. There was so much variety and something for everyone. The quality of the products we have used are excellent! The Latex Mattress Topper we have been using for two years now is still in the same condition that we bought it in, this mattress topper also allayed neck issues and back niggles for my wife and I. We are extremely happy with the product, and we see no need to buy anywhere else.
We are also using the Latex Pillows...
Brilliant Service. Brilliant Product.
I purchased a queen sized Euro from the Latex Bedding Co in January of 2020, and over a year later I can say it is an absolutely brilliant mattress. Super high quality and performs exactly as my experience of it in the showroom, and at a much more reasonable price point than competing latex mattress retailers who are essentially selling the same product.
I researched the latex mattress industry extensively and found that not only is the Latex Bedding Co offering the highest quality version of latex mattresses available in Australia, their serv...

The Bentley of Mattresses
This is the Mattress other Mattresses are measured by. If you have the money, absolutely go for a latex. Doesn't have to be from these guys, but they do have one of the best price to quality ratios going in Australia. Latex is by far the most long lived mattress material and has the fewest issues with leaching out VOCs (volatile organic chemicals) versus memory foam and spring based beds. It's also much cooler and more well ventilated that spring and memory foam mattresses.
Why you should believe me:

Great product and service
I bought a latex mattress topper in early May because I was a) massively impressed with the knowledge and patience of the sales person that responded to my phone call, who answered all my questions and b) because they have a showroom so I was able to go and test drive the product before buying. Again the sales person (I don't know if it was Dave or Cliff - I kept calling him Dave so I hope that was right!) was super informative and helpful. I ordered the double size just in its cotton sock, which was delivered promptly within a few days. It is ...absolutely wonderful to sleep on - providing good support but with that lovely bit of 'give' that really takes the pressure off my shoulders and hips. I absolutely love it and am so glad that I purchased it. Thanks Latex Bedding Co.
Questions & Answers
we have motorhome and the bed is the seating that we make up and is uncomfortable would a latex topper help
Hi Betty, thank you for your enquiry. The topper would certainly help if the seating/sleeping surface is very firm and it will provide for a softer sleeping surface. If you are uncomfortable due to th...e seating/sleeping surface being too soft (you may be sleeping in a hollow if the foam in the seating/sleeping surface has lost its density) then I would advise to have the foam replaced. Hope this helps.
thank you for your quick response
I'm interested in buying one of your mattresses but I'm worried that it might sag after 1-2 years. My previous bed was around $1k and it sagged after a year or so - the bed company would not fix it as they stated sagging a few inches is 'normal' even though I wake up with a sore back/shoulders everyday.
So my main concerns are: 1. Will the mattress sag easily? 2. If it does sag, does the warranty cover the mattress sagging a few inches? Please advise, thanks.
Hi Lydia and thank you for your enquiry. Latex typically loses between 2% and 5% of its density over a ten year period so theoretically these mattresses should last 25 - 30 years, should one of our ma...ttresses in the unlikely event exceed the 5% settling during the ten year warranty the mattress will be exchanged at no cost to the consumer.
I've been told that some of your mattresses have synthetic materials in them as well as the latex. Can you please tell me which models have this? And what they are? I'm looking at the Euro at the moment.
Hi Leah, thanks for the query, we ONLY do 100% natural certified latex.
