My husband and I need to purchase a Queen mattress and we don't have a lot of money, we are both disabled and on Social Security so we really need to keep the cost under a $1000.00 or as close to that as possible. Sadly, Our weight has hit the 200 lb range. He has spinal stenosis, COPD and sleep apnea I have fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid arthritis and asthma. We want to have something that is firm and supports well.
The mattress must stay cool and not hold heat this is a huge issue for me as I am always hot and get very warm when I sleep. Research I have done suggests to me that this is a problem with mattresses nowadays. Our current mattress is 15 plus years old, I got a cuddle down memory foam topper about 8 years ago, and these seemed to work well but in the last year both have broken down pretty badly. Any suggestions on what to buy. Thank You, Linda
Since you can't afford the best mattress, you also want to avoid wasting your money on a mediocre mattress. You're going to need firm support and a comfortable sleeping surface and what you buy has to do that job without leaving you back at square one a year from now.
Since your current mattress is 15 years old, you might be under the impression that today's mattresses last that long. They don't.
The recommendation is for a good firm strong basic mattress and add a layer of soft latex to it for long lasting comfort.
The latex foam mattress topper is the key to comforting your fibro and arthritis, as well as extending the life of the mattress. The mattress needs to firm and strong to support your weights. This sleep system combination will provide everything your body needs and protect your investment at the same time. The mattress is made by Therapedic. It's their "Prism Elite" model at $649.00, with the 2" all-natural Talalay latex foam topper on sale for $315.00. Together, you are just under your $1000 cap...and you'll have excellent quality products to show for it.
