Will my mattress lump?
Long fiber wool and cotton resist forming balls or lumps and give futons a longer life expectancy. The Futon Shop uses the best quality long fiber staple cotton in most their mattresses.

Mattresses for back problems
There is no single mattress style or type that works for all people. Although any mattress that helps someone sleep without pain and stiffness is the best mattress for that individual. A good mattress should provide back support for the natural curves and alignment of the spine. What mattress is best if I have back problems?
Latex sinks in just like memory foam, but always provides a reflex. This provides great back support but tends to be a little bouncy. With that being said, you should expect better motion isolation than that provided by connected innersprings or foam. The degree of motion isolation will depend on the thickness, density, and type of latex.
