Hello,I have been looking for a new mattress for almost 6 months now, but I am having a hard time doing so. I have a 12 year old SpringAir pillowtop mattress and my boyfriend and I thought it was the most comfortable, until he purchased a Simmons BeautyRest WorldClass plush pillowtop. Once he purchased this mattress I slept on it about 3-4 times per week and had no issues, but after about 3 months I then started having issues sleeping on my SpringAir mattress. My lower back was constantly in pain and I was tossing and turning all night. To fix this solution I thought it may help to sleep on my SpringAir about 6 nights per week, and only sleep on his mattress once a week. The result has now left me confused....my back is still killing on my mattress, I HATE it, and when I sleep on his mattress it is better, but I don't get a full night sleep like before and my lower back still hurts. I thought I was sold on a Simmons Beautyrest Pillow top, but now I am hesitant to purchase one!. I am not sure if they are too soft for my lower back, but I love softer mattresses. I would appreciate any adice you may have as to what direction I should go in. I have it set that I wanted to purchase a Simmons and have not looked into any other brands. I do not want to make a mistake on a purchase that could cost me $3,000. Thanks for your help!!!!
Hi Lauren. 12 years is too long for a Spring Air. It should have been replaced years ago. The coils in the Beautyrest are not made of tempered steel. Add to that a plush pillow top and you have a bed that looses alot of its original comfort and support in months. You may consciously think that you like the comfort of a soft mattress, but your body needs firmer support. Without it, it will let you know via the pain you're feeling and the lack of sleep you're getting. That's where you are now. From here, you go out and buy a non pillowtop plush Sealy Posturepedic....not ultra plush, just plush...and all will be well at your place. The construction of the Posturepedic and Spring Air are very similar, but the Posturepedic has a better spec...more coils, heavier wire, higher quality padding. That's why a Sealy and not a Spring Air.
