After visiting a local retailer, I've narrowed it down to these two mattresses. I am leaning toward the Wolf Latex Plush b/c it feels more plush and soft, however I'm a little concerned with the cotton in it. The retailer said the Latex Plush requires more maintenance than the Otis Moonshadow. Is this true and should it be a concern of mine?

Thanks for your help and a great website.

Hi Swedish Pimple:

Read about latex and visco foam here: http://www.futonlife.com/foam/index.php3

Other foams here: http://www.futonlife.com/primer/foam.php3

Cotton is great as a base filling and will allow for substance and firmness. Latex is also very firm. Depending on what you like for your personal comfort level (Softness vs. firmness) combinations of different foams, cotton and polyester will give you a different feel.

Be sure to lie down on as many different mattresses as possible, don't rush, and get what feels right to you.
