I purchased a Stearns and Foster Shantel Firm King mattress around 8 months ago. Almost immediately my hips started to hurt in the morning and shortly after, my back as well. Due to this fact, I've been relegated to the guest room bed (my old mattress) for the last 5 months. I've finally decided I'd like to try and salvage my purchase with a Latex Topper. I'm a side-sleeper but I also sleep on my back. As you know, the Shantel Firm is not super firm and has a little give to it. So my question is, what firmness would you recommend for the topper? Let me know if you have any other questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
The Shantel has an inch of memory foam that softens with your body heat.
The latex topper will insulate the memory foam from the body heat you give off.
With the latex topper, the mattress will stay firmer, while the top is made soft and comfortable.
The latex topper is extremely resilient...much more so than the upholstery layers used in that mattress.
The latex will absorb much of your body weight, which will cause the mattress to retain its shape better over the years,
A 2" soft Talalay Latex foam mattress topper is what you'll want for the top of that mattress.
