Second layer (lumbar support) – this layer is built from a thin memory foam, which comes as 1 inch in thickness. This layer provides additional lumbar support. In addition, the using of thin foam makes it more ideal, because it reduces absorbing and retain heat retention than thick foam.
Third layer (support) – foam encased contour coils – This 4″ layer of individually foam encased coils is responsible for providing the comfort and contouring support layer. In addition, there are 884 individually foam encased coils in the Queen Size mattress. When lying on this mattress, each coil will mold and contour to every curve of your body.

Edge Support System – foam encasement – Completely encased with foam, this layer sits between the top and bottom layer of coils and along the edge of the mattress. This layer helps protect the coils and reinforces the edges of the mattress, improving performance for both sitting and sleeping.
The cover is constructed from 100% organic cotton. The organic cotton makes it highly breathable and also quite soft to touch.
