FT. BRAGG, Calif., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Women are built differently than men. That's why Ft. Bragg, CA-based FloBeds has developed what is believed to be the nation's first mattress specifically for women.
"It's a mattress that comfortably and intuitively recognizes the difference between straight lines and curves," says FloBeds founder Dave Turner.
"All things being equal, a woman usually needs a softer mattress than a man because her bone structure is different," continues Turner. "A softer mattress conforms better to the contour of her hips." Turner noted that in general, women are also smaller than men, with muscle density that tends to be less than men.
When ordering custom mattresses, women are asked their weight; height; whether they prefer sleeping on their side, back or front; and if they like a softer or firmer mattress.
There's no problem for women sharing a bed. FloBeds unique construction incorporates stackable natural latex layers on each side of the bed, ranging from soft to firm, that are layered to achieve individualized comfort and support. This means that, for those sharing a bed, layers can be rearranged to change the firmness for each sleeper.
Turner noted that most FloBeds customers use the Internet to order their mattresses, eliminating the need to spend the time and effort to visit a factory. Mattresses are shipped everywhere, and all come with a 90-night firmness exchange (layers may be changed for firmer or softer) and a 90-night money back guarantee.
100% Green / Biodegradable
In addition, FloBeds mattresses are environmentally friendly, constructed with natural materials like latex from rubber trees, 100% organic cotton, and pure wool from sustainably managed land. The latex is biodegradable and Oeko-Tex Certified. Woolgatherer Carding Mill uses BioSoft Wool Scouring Detergent, which leaves no detectable residue and is 100 per cent biodegradable.
Foundations are made from wood sustainably harvested from Ponderosa Pine forests in the western U.S. and birch forests in Western Europe. The natural fire resistant properties of wool meet tough new federal fire standards that became effective July 1, 2007.
