through the innate softness and wonderful contouring offered by our mattresses. Side sleepers will benefit

hot sleepers. The latex in our mattresses, which has an open-cell structure, is evenly
perforated throughout to promote airflow. This enhanced breathability prevents heat retention in our twin
mattress, keeping you cool throughout the night!

retardants, and deemed harmless to human health. To assure you of this, we have obtained

Three Unique Twin-Size Mattresses to Choose From!
We didn't want you to feel restricted in your choice, so we offer three different types of latex twin mattresses
to choose from, each unique from the other in certain aspects.
Twin Organic Latex Mattress
The Turmerry Twin Organic Latex Mattress is completely made of Dunlop latex foam layers. It arrives as three
layers of foam, imparted with a layer of natural wool for fire resistance, and to be encased in a GOTS-certified
organic cotton cover. This all-foam mattress type is a great choice if you prefer stability and soft
plushness beneath you.

Latex Hybrid Mattress provides - the perfect balance between an 8-inch layer of pocket coils and a 2-inch layer
of FSC-certified Talalay latex. If you prefer a bouncy mattress with a medium-firm feel, then this is a
great option for you!
Twin Egg Crate Mattress
Love the feel of an egg crate mattress topper on your
bed? Well, you can now make the egg crate a permanent part of your bed with the Turmerry Twin Egg Crate

2.4-inch egg crate foam layer.

contouring. The customization of our Twin Egg Crate Mattress covers a wide range of firmness levels
and heights, similar to the Twin Organic Latex Mattress.
Twin Mattress - Buyer's Guide
Defining a twin-size mattress
Among the most common US mattress sizes, the twin size is the smallest,
with a dimension of 38" X 75". It is also referred to as a "single"
mattress sometimes. Going up against sizes like twin XL, full, queen, king, and Cal king, a twin-size mattress
is budget-friendly, built to fit small spaces, and ideal for a thin solo sleeper.
Is the twin mattress size suitable for you?
If you fall into any of these categories, then yes, a twin-size mattress could be a good choice for you -
As you might've guessed, twin-size mattresses don't suit couples or heavy/tall sleepers like a full or queen
mattress does. They're best used for -
Pros and cons of choosing a twin mattress
Although they are beneficial for a certain sect of sleepers, twin-size mattresses are by no means ideal for
everyone. Let's look at the benefits as well as the downfalls of choosing a twin mattress -
Budget-friendly: Twin-size mattresses are usually the most affordable mattress size on
market. If you're on a tight budget but still want a quality mattress, then opting for a twin mattress
Saves on space: For those of us living in small studio rooms, apartments, dorm rooms,
narrow and compact design of twin beds can help save a lot of valuable space.
Versatile, multipurpose, portable: Twin beds can easily fit onto different bed frames,
bunk beds, daybeds, trundle beds, etc. They can also act as a bed at home or a bed on the road, such as
in an RV
or a car.
Did you know - RV mattress sizes are much more compact than standard mattress sizes.
Want to know why? Our RV mattress sizes guide has all the
details you need!
Restrictive mobility: Doesn't matter if you're thin or thick, tall or short; a twin
narrow design restricts how much you can move around on it. This may be a deterrent for restless
constantly move around during sleep.
Limited support: Tall people (above 6 feet) and thick people may find parts of their
protruding out of a twin mattress. This results in limited support and discomfort.
Unsuitable for couples/families: The twin mattress size is best suited to solo sleepers
features very little space for a sleep partner(s). A queen mattress size or above is necessary for this

Twin-size mattresses vs. Other mattress sizes
Twin vs. Twin XL -- The "XL" in twin XL signifies an addition of 5 inches to the length of a
twin mattress (38" X 75"), making the dimension of a twin XL = 38" X 80". This extra length provides greater
legroom, making the twin XL better suited for taller people.
Twin vs. Full -- A full-size mattress shares the same length as a twin but is much larger in
width, with a dimension of 54″ X 75″. The increase in width makes a full mattress viable for two people to sleep
on, albeit with a bit of adjustment in space. Single adults will find a full mattress to be much more spacious
than a twin mattress.
Twin vs. Queen/King/Cal King -- A queen mattress (60″ X 80″), king mattress (76″ X 80″), and cal
king mattress (72" X 84") are all larger than a twin mattress. A queen mattress can comfortably support couples,
while a king and cal king mattress can support an entire family with kids. They are, however, costly and need a
huge bedroom to fit.
What are the different types of twin mattresses available?
There are five common twin mattress types available today, each differing in construction and material. They are
Memory Foam Mattress: Memory foam is a synthetic material obtained by turning polyurethane more
viscous and elastic. These mattresses are renowned for their high body contouring ability, thanks to the
adaptive properties of the material. Make sure you buy your memory foam from a brand with a tested CertiPUR-US certification.
Latex Mattress: Latex is liquid rubber obtained from rubber trees, which is then manufactured
into foam layers. Latex mattresses are well-known for their balance between luxury firm support and on-par
pressure relief. Their natural composition means they are often free of harmful levels of chemical substances found
Innerspring Mattress: Innerspring mattress models combine thin layers of foam cushioning with
firm layers of coils. They are traditional and are best known for the higher firmness levels offered. Side
sleepers may find their firmer surfaces to be uncomfortably firm.
Hybrid Mattress: Hybrid mattress models combine thicker layers of foam with firm layers of
coils. Hybrids provide a medium firm feel, as the cushioning is much better, and the materials are often of
higher quality than innersprings. This medium-firm level of firmness caters much better to all sleeping
positions, including side sleepers.
Airbed: Airbeds are most often created with textile-reinforced plastic or rubber and contain air
chambers. Airbed brands tend to offer a wide selection of customizations. Their firmness can also be adjusted by
adding/removing air. Airbeds, however, are best used as temporary beds for traveling, guests, etc., as they are
not as supportive as the other mattress types.
Memory foam mattresses vs. Latex mattresses: Which is better?
The battle between the two kings of all-foam mattress types has been raging on for a few good years now.
On the one hand, there's memory foam. This lab-made material conforms very well to the sleeper, to the point
where it even remembers your body contours after a while, earning it the name "memory" foam.
On the other hand, there's latex, the bouncy, natural counterpart that seeks to provide a balance between
contouring and firmness.
As per our experience, latex mattresses have often come out on top. Let us explain why -
Latex can be free of harmful levels of chemicals that lead to the off-gassing of volatile
compounds (VOCs) in memory foam. VOCs have been known to be carcinogenic in some
cases due to the chemicals you end up inhaling.
Latex has an open-cell structure through which it can prevent heat retention, a common
issue faced by traditional memory foam users. Further perforations could end up making latex even more
breathable and cooling for the sleeper.
Latex is much more durable than memory foam, with a resilient and sag-free lifespan of
15-20+ years when cared for properly. This makes your investment worthwhile.
Latex doesn't sink like memory foam, but instead provides bounce and allows you to move
freely on top of it. Light sleepers awoken by the "stuck" feeling experienced in memory foam can easily
avoid it with latex.
Latex's sink-free aspect can also influence the amount of spine support you get. Whereas
you put your spine at risk of misalignment with memory foam, latex aims to prevent this at all costs.
Latex has a quick response time to your movements, which allows it to adjust to your
body with precision, constantly providing you with the desired comfort and support.
There are many other aspects as well, such as eco-friendliness, motion isolation, etc., that make latex mattresses
worth investing in!
All-foam vs. Spring mattresses: Which is better?
All-foam mattresses are those that are comprised entirely of foam. These include mattress types like latex, gel
memory foam, and memory foam mattress. All foam mattress types are well known for providing the sleeper with a
plush, cushioning mattress surface.
All-foam mattress types are better at -
Contouring and Pressure-relief: With each layer being composed of foam, an all-foam mattress
becomes the ideal candidate for those seeking enhanced contouring and pressure relief. These mattresses also
out your body weight evenly across their surface, reducing the pressure put on your body. Thin sleepers and
sleepers find this aspect to suit them more.
Motion Isolation: All-foam mattresses are better at absorbing motion than spring mattresses.
Where the spring layers of a spring mattress are likely to transfer motion, the foam layers of an all-foam
mattress are more likely to absorb them, making it ideal for couples.
Noise Reduction: Since foams do not make the creaking noises you experience in a spring
mattress, all-foam mattresses are suitable for light sleepers who are awoken by slight environmental
Customized Comfort: Nowadays, all-foam mattresses are available in various
levels, allowing you to choose the one that suits your preferred sleep style.
Spring mattresses combine foam with spring layers. The spring layers act as the support core, while the foam acts as
the comfort layer. These include innersprings and hybrid mattresses. Spring mattress types are well known for
providing the sleeper with a bouncy, responsive, medium-firm mattress surface.
Spring mattress types are better at -
Support and Bounce: With the strong spring support core, spring mattresses provide a healthy
amount of support and bounce to sleepers. This makes them suitable for back and stomach sleepers, as well as
Response: Moving around an all-foam mattress could sometimes prove to be difficult, as the
material can pull you into it. Spring mattresses tend to alleviate this issue by being highly responsive,
letting you move around with ease, and providing you with quick support.
Cooling: The spring layer of a spring mattress is openly-structured, allowing for
airflow through them. This is ideal for hot sleepers, who get to enjoy a cool night's sleep.
At Turmerry, we have experience with both spring and all-foam mattress types. As per our expertise on the subject,
we'd say both are good. We would, however, recommend a type from each one. For all-foam mattresses, we would
recommend opting for latex, and for spring mattresses, we would recommend hybrids. These options carry the most
What features should you seek out in a twin mattress?
Besides the mattress size, there are a few other features one should be wary of when choosing a twin mattress.
These include -
A firmness level that suits your sleeping position. Generally,
side sleepers do well with a medium-firm mattress, while back and stomach sleepers may require something
A mattress height/thickness that can accommodate your weight. Mattress height can affect the
comfort and support you receive. As a general rule of thumb, the heavier you weigh, the higher/thicker your
mattress should be.
Strong edge support to prevent you from falling off the edge. Twin-size mattresses are narrow,
which puts you at a higher risk of falling off them if you're a restless sleeper.
Breathable mattress materials/fibers for a cool night's sleep. Look for a mattress type that has
an open cell structure, such as latex, so that the unrestricted airflow can prevent you from waking up sweating
Durability, and a good warranty. Look for brands with good
reputations that claim at least 6-8 years of mattress durability, and back it up with a warranty spanning a
similar amount of time.
What is the best twin mattress?
With all the data we've gathered and the experience we've accumulated on the subject of twin-size mattresses,
we can safely recommend a latex mattress as the best twin mattress type.
Because a natural/organic latex mattress can counter many of the issues you'll face with
memory foam, innersprings, and airbeds. They offer a wonderful medium-firm feel that balances comfort, support,
contouring, and pressure relief. A latex mattress from well-known brands can also be tested for customer safety!
Look for a twin mattress size with perforated natural/organic latex foam, an all-foam or hybrid
construction, and "tested" certification from institutions like GOLS, OEKO-TEX, etc. Also, if the mattress comes
with a cover, see if it's something soft, like organic cotton.
Latex mattresses come with a wide selection of customizable options, and that too from many different brands.

Finding a trustworthy retailer
Thanks to the plethora of resources available at our fingertips, seeking a reliable mattress retailer has never been
easier. Here are the important details you must check to ensure you can buy from a certain retailer -
Healthy Contact Details: You must have at least 2 or more hassle-free ways of reaching the
retailer. A seller's contact details, such as email, phone number, address, etc., can often be found on
their websites or stores. Ensure you can get to them in a timely manner and gauge how well they respond to
Good Reviews and Reputation: No matter how obscure and small a retailer is, you can always
find out how its previous customers review its products. There are many independent blogs and websites that
even specifically function to host reviews! A retailer with good reviews and a good reputation can often be
seen as reliable.
Favorable warranties and policies: A reliable retailer must sell a product they themselves
rely on being good for the customer. As such, the warranty must be able to cover wide aspects, and that too
for at least two years. The policies of the retailer, such as their return policy, should also be
consumer-friendly and transparent. Always look for details regarding trial periods, fees, and conditions for
returns or exchanges.
These three things make a retailer worth your precious time and money. Of course, there are a number of other factors
that aren't mentioned here, such as secure payment options, delivery and installation services, active community
presence, etc. Be sure to do your research and invest in a retailer you have faith in!
