Hello Peter, I have spinal stenosis and spondylothesis. I have been following your blogs and tried the latex mattresses-the Beachside is too soft for me and my back acts up right away; the next firmer one seemed better; but is so costly. Long story, I settled on a Sealy PP Island Manor Plush Queen- which I thought I got for a good price $800 for the set-- (I went with a local store because of my problem and the likelihood that I may need to use their exchange policy; and rightly so, although mostly comfotable my back is hurting in the morning. The bed is very supportive; so I don't know what is causing the back stiffness. I am debating whether I should exchange for something else or try for more comfort on the exisitng Sealy by getting a latex topper? OR: should I exchange for a higher model of Sealy; perhaps with more cushioning. I am the person who has been sleeping on my couch for 2 years; although, my couch is foam and seems soft; by butt dips lower where the two cushions meet; and my back is supported by the first cushion; this is why I thought I needed firm support for my back;Sorry about the long e-mail; I don't know what to do from here. Before I pay more money by "upgrading" to different type or style of bed; which I am willing to do/what do you suggest I try in the Sealy line? or try a latex topper?
Hi Teri. See if they will let you wait for the new Posturepedics, before making an exchange. If so, I suggest you get it in writing.
Look at the Signature models. Those will provide better pressure point relief and better lumbar support. A latex topper will help, but it won't feel the same as a latex mattress. Buy the time you pay for the comfort exchange, $150 delivery, 25% restocking and the difference in the price of the new set, which you won't get a "deal" on...you could have had what you needed to begin with.
