I live all the way over here in the UK but have been reading your blogs and fantastic advice you guys should open a mattress store you would make it big time.
I am a 45 yr old male at 100kg with possible fibromyalgia. I say possibly because its hard to prove over here.
I used to sleep on my tummy which I still prefer but I have had lower back pain for many yrs and so I am trying to
re-adjust on my back but still have pain also lots of shoulder pain how people sleep on there side I just dont know.
Now, I sleep on a superking size mattress called a visprung its a split mattress as my side is a medium tension and my wifes a soft tension its no longer on the sprung divan base but a sprung slatted base on an iron bed, which I prefer as its slightly more tight. My wife has very bad arthritis all over her body. She is slim, same age, around 9 stone but moves around all night due to constant pain. she loves a soft mattress. In fact, she says the softer the better. I disagree. We pay thousands of £££ sterling for our beds yet cant find one we are happy with. I was looking at a tempurpedic cloud but after reading what you say I'm not going to bother we have had latex beds in the past which although feel great initially they tend to make us ache soon after and we tend to sell on line at a huge loss and I'm talking we have wasted over 10k in the last 2 yr buying beds and selling on. You seem to advise a latex topper around 2 to 3 inch which sound like a cheap alternative to getting yet another mattress.
I was also looking at a company called body impression mattress over here in UK we just want a comfortable night with out spending yet tens of thousands again. Just goes to prove that an expensive mattress is not neccessary and our current visprung which is 3 yr old is about two from the top of the range and would cost ecq of 12k today please can you help even though I live in UK
The latex topper is the solution for many and it will work for the two of you, as well.
Your wife will definitely benefit from a 2" soft. Your situation can be addressed in one of two ways. The soft model will allow you to sleep on your side with more comfort. In which case, you would get a king size for the both of you. Or, you could get a 2" firm model for your side, which will allow you to go back to sleeping on your stomach, if that is your preferred sleeping position.
You would then get one of each in the half size.
This year, we plan to go global with our latex toppers. If you like, I can start with you.
