When interviewed, many sleep specialists report that the most important factor in a good night's sleep is the mattress that you are using.  It can make a world of difference.  Your mattress can also be at fault for any back pains or stiff neck difficulties you are experiencing.  This was the main reason that the Englander Mattress Company ventured out into the consumer world, and to help bring people a more restful night's sleep.  [REF Englander Mattress Reviews 2010]

The History
The founder of the company, Max Englander, began marketing the Englander Sleep Products in 1894.  His goal was to provide a mattress that would provide a more comfortable experience while sleeping.  The Englander company was the first to introduce the continuous coil unit, as well as selling full size and twin size sets separately.  While the company has changed hands and ideas throughout the years, the original vision of comfort has remained true.

The first time the company changed owners was in 1961.  This is the year that Union Carbide acquired the company.  The new owners began focusing more on the inner coils in the mattress.  However, it was not until 1992 when Englander officially held the propriety rights to the "heaviest gauge coil unit" in the industry.  Two years later the Englander Company celebrated their 100th anniversary while passing the 100 million dollar mark.

Englander changed hands for a second time in 2002 when purchased by England Inc., a subsidiary of La-Z-Boy.  However, the new owners decided to keep the Englander name due to its long standing customer history, just as Union Carbide did.  The latest change of ownership came in 2005, when licensees purchased the company and formed "Englander Sleep Products, LLC."  This, in turn, launched a brand new logo and line of innovative products that continue to be popular today.

Nature's Finest Latex Sleep System
The 100% natural latex rubber mattress was made popular by Englander for the first time in 1996, with the launching of their Nature's Finest model.  This helped revitalize a section of the mattress industry that had declined in previous years.  Soon after, mattress companies all over the world were selling natural latex mattresses as competition.

The Nature's Finest latex mattress, as it is called by Englander, is made with pure and natural rubber latex.  According to the Englander company, it is nature's "most durable cushioning material".  Technically speaking, it conforms to your body to provide comfort both luxuriously and in an orthopedic sense.  The most important factor is that it is completely natural and safe for the environment.  Natural latex has also been said to keep you more cool in the summer and warmer in the winter. 

Viscopedic Memory Foam
The Viscopedic Memory Foam mattress came soon after the latex reintroduction.  In 1997, Englander brought the Visco Elastic Memory Foam onto the market.  The secret is in the antimicrobial fibers.  According to the Englander company website, the Viscopedic memory foam has a more responsive cell structure to provide complete luxury.  In turn, it reduces your need to toss and turn by relieving certain pressure points that cause discomfort.

Due to the antimicrobial fibers, the memory foam returns back to its original form after each use.  It also keeps your movements from disrupting your partner's sleep.  Englander refers to this as their "No Motion Transfer" feature in the Viscopedic mattress. 

Synergy Fusion Foam Collection
In 2005, the Synergy Collection was introduced.  It is a collaboration of the Visco-Elastic memory foam and Englander's natural rubber latex.  Therefore, it has all of the natural elements and eco-friendly characteristics of the original latex mattresses, but with a more luxurious feel.  According to Englander, it has the same heat and body temperature sensitivity of the viscopedic mattresses, but with a more natural and pure quality of the Nature's Finest mattress.   

Posture SupportPlus
The Posture SupportPlus line was designed for those who are athletically built or of a plus-size stature.  The mattress is formulated with a patent-pending "dual coil" that provides extra support.  The top coils form to your body while the heavier bottom coils provide the support and extra durability.  An added characteristic of each Posture SupportPlus mattress is a steel edge support system, "soy-based" visco memory foam, and pure rubber latex. 

Hotel Collection
Englander embraced the business portion of the mattress industry by forming a relationship with hotels all over the world.  The Hotel Collection is a 2-sided innerspring line of mattresses with a heavy duty coil section.  There is also the same steel edge support that is in the Posture SupportPlus line for added durability.  You can find Englander Hotel Collection mattresses in the following hotels: Sheraton Hotels, Hilton, Club Quarters, Marriott, Peninsula, Soho Grand, Sofitel, and Nine Zero.

I purchased an Englander 9 years ago. It started sagging in the middle a year and a half ago. I am slender and I'm surprised that this mattress has failed with so little use (I travel a lot and I'm not a big person). I'm certainly looking into other brands because I think this mattress should have lasted longer.

We purchased the Englander Nature's Finest king in 2004. Had the mattress for 11 years. Indentations started to set in in the 8th year. By the 10th year both my wife and I started experiencing back and hip pain. We just got a Leesa mattress and it is very comfortable, and much less than the Englander. I probably will never go to a showroom again considering the online deals and free trials that are offered these days.

AN AMAZING BED! A latex foam mattress makes good sense for anyone with dust allergies or anyone who wants a truly restful night's sleep. I bought my Englander Nature's Finest Latex Plus full sized mattress and foundation over 15 years ago. I continue to find it the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on. After every trip away, even at the most highly rated hotels, I breathe a sigh of relief when I get home. My mattress is firm, with no built in pillow top. I wanted a firm foundation, but soon realized I needed just a little softer "give" for my aging shoulders and hips, so I purchased a separate latex foam topper. That simple addition made this Englander mattress incredibly comfortable! I personally feel it's much smarter to purchase a separate foam topper than get a pillow-top mattress for two reasons - 1) the topper is easy and much cheaper to replace when needed & 2) easy to rotate! Latex foam mattresses are VERY heavy - so I love that I can easily rotate or flip the topper with no help-needed. Last year I began to feel a bit of a sag in the middle of the bed. Oh no, I thought. Time for a new mattress? No! Once I removed the foam topper and slept on the bed without the extra padding, I was surprised to find there was no sag. The foam topper had developed a sag, but the mattress was perfect. Still a little too firm for my preference, I ordered a new foam topper. So I still love this bed and the night's sleep I get on it. It has proven to be very smart and comfortable purchase. I know I may be expecting too much for a mattress to last 30 years, but this one just might!

We purchased two twin Englander mattresses three years ago, to create a king bed in an upstairs room attainable only through a narrow, winding enclosed staircase. The mattresses have proven to be supportive, comfortable, and are holding up pretty well, given they were not Englander\'s top of the line choice. Good price, good product, and American made.

We just bought a new Englander Memory Foam Mattress. I haven?t slept more than a couple of hours without waking up in pain since we began sleeping on it. I wake up in the morning with awful pain in almost every part of my body. My arms go numb from pressure cutting off the circulation while I sleep. This bed felt fine when I laid on it at the store before we purchased it, But it feels like I\'m sleeping on concrete after just a few hours. I had No pain or problems sleeping before we bought this bed. We bought this as a Christmas gift for us to give ourselves. My husband isnt having the same problems with the bed, however he weighs about 275lbs. and I weigh 160lbs. so there is a weight issue here that could make a difference. There is a No Return policy on these beds so I am stuck being miserable. I need help if anyone has a solution for my problem. I will Never buy another mattress with a No Return Policy again.

I bought an Englander mattress from a store and after a few weeks it started to sink in the middle, I complain to the store and after sending somebody here they gave me a new one, but guess what, this one it started to sink in the middle too, this time I complain to the factory and they send an inspector to look at the mattress, but the vice president send me a message saying there is nothing wrong with it, but that if I wanted I could do one of two things, take it to the factory and wait for it while they inspect and repair it, she said by taking the top part of it, and wait for it cost nothing, but if I take to the store where I bought it, they will pick it up it will cost me one fity dollars, I will be without a mattress for more than a week and when deliver back to the store will be another fifty dollars like if we had money to through away in top of what I already pay for the mattress which is piece of crap, so I told them to forget it but I will still complain to more higher corporate officers I believe this so unfair, this mattress has a five year guarantee in the tag, but they don't honor that. good luck

To this day they are still fighting with me to not pay anything or at least transportation to their factory (Englander) to get it repair according to them, I already send a complaint to the office of Lisa Madigan Consumer Dpt. about this issue, the guy that came to inspect the mattress told their office that he felt a softness in the middle of the mattress but she still have the nerve to say the mattress is not defective. Bad people, bad product and this is the way that they handle their business, getting away with selling bad products and not honoring their warrantee.

This is the best mattress I have ever owned. I purchased a Sonoma from Mattress Gallery Direct in Cool Springs, TN. I have owned it for 6 months and my back problems are GONE ! The sales people are wonderful and very helpful. I have owned Englander mattresses for 30 years and I take care of them and they last and last.
Sonoma is the best mattress ever.
Thank you

Piece of crap. Have had it less than 5 years and am already looking for a new mattress. Constant back pain and the bed squeaks like a 20 yr old matress. It sinks in the middle. Will never buy again.

I purchased a Lady Englander when I was 6 months pregnant. I still own that Lady Englander and that baby I was carrying is now 33 yrs. old. I am JUST now looking to purchase a new mattress. Over the years, friends that might have sat on my bed always commented about the softness and comfort it had. I am 58 yrs old and I have NEVER suffered with back pain due to my bed. I went out yesterday to look for another Englander to purchase.
