Shopping for a mattress and having a difficult time. Over the last 4-5 yrs we have bought the following mattresses and been unhappy:
1. Simmons Beauty Rest Bancroft (World Class) Firm (RC Wiley) -- too firm caused backaches
2. Traded in for Simmons Beauty Rest Bancroft Plush and it developed deep indents where hips were - over 2' so RC Wiley replaced.
3. Marquis Torino Plush (latex mattress - RC Wiley) - also indented in a matter of months, replaced by RC Wiley.
4. Vera Wang Beyond Radiance (also latex mattress frm RC Wiley).
All the above were Cal King mattresses and all have been unsuitable - most breaking down. The latest Vera Wang is 2 yrs old and is deeply indented where husband sleeps (225 lbs). We both have numbness in both arms and back aches from mattress.
Now to shopping for guest rm: Bought a Select Comfort I10 (top of the line) Number Bed Queen Size. The backaches are instant and wake up feeling bruises and battered every 10 min. The lower nrs. cause the backaches - the higher numbers the bruise and battered feeling and again, numbness.
We are in process of returning but have no idea where to go from here. Can you help?
You were on the right track initially. Could have gotten a topper to soften the surface of that. In the Simmons line, going to a "plush" means more than just a softer top, but also, a much thinner gauge wire for the coils...resulting in what happened to that. There are lots of latex mattresses out there that have very little latex in them. I don't know anythging about the Marquis Torino, but can promise you that the Vera Wang uses a polyurethane foam core....likely for the other too.
My wife and I have been sleeping on latex for years...nice sized people, she and I...but we are talking about an all latex mattress.
Today, I'd have you look at any of the Stearns & Foster models you can find without a pillowtop....and you can't go wrong.
