We decided to get a natural fibre mattress after having a cheaper one that stunk of acrid, man-made chemicals (flame retardants, presumably) for months on end after we bought it. Having read the research on the raised risks to health of flame retardants, we thought getting a natural fibre mattress was a price worth paying. Our cottonsafe mattress only has a kind of homely wooly jumper smell, I'm glad to say!
Our new mattress is beyond comfortable in comparison to our old one as well. It doesn't move/shake as much as our old one when myself or my partner gets in/out of bed or changes position in our sleep. Good sleep and health is important - so this mattress was a good investment.
We purchased the Appledore about a year ago for my daughter who has raved about it ever since. When working in France for five months, I asked her what shed missed about home. Her first comment was that she missed her bed with the comfy mattress! Ive long since known about the strong fire retardant chemicals in home furnishings, particularly being concerned about them in new bedding and mattresses and was delighted to find your company. When I heard about a friends strong allergic reaction to the chemicals in a memory foam mattress, I was more than happy to recommend you. From purchase, delivery to regular usage, it has been a very happy experience and the prices are reasonable too! I cant recommend you highly enough.
