We are looking for a new queen mattress. Where would you/have you bought yours? I heard Ikea sells them. Look nice and cheap-but is it comfy?
TIA!

I was considering emailing them to see if their latex mattress had any flame retardant chemicals in it. I'll post if I do (and get a response!)

In general it looks like their probably pretty good if you're not buying it in the USA.

We just bought this mattress (in Spain) and it is very comfy and seems to be of good quality. Would recommend.

Grr. I AM in the USA and I'm wondering how I can get a chemical-free mattress.

Are there any materials that are naturally "flame retardant" and don't need (according to USA's stupid safety rules) anything added to the fabric? Would a natural latex "bed topper" be free of extra chemicals? I'm wondering if I could get a few latex "bed toppers" and cover them with a wool "mattress cover" to make my own mattress without having any kind of cotton cover that would "require" the addition of chemicals.

savvy rest is what you want but they are pricey. You can get free samples of the materials they use. very nice and well worth it.

Wool and latex are naturally flame retardant. We have a Natura latex mattress. It was super-expensive, however

I am strongly considering getting a Savvyrest. It's just that we want to lay on a latex mattress before we buy but there is nothing near us so we have to wait until be go to a major city. Unfortunately we get there only every couple of years. I don't know if I should just chance it and order it or what.
