My husband has been experiencing a great deal of pain due to arthritis in his hip and back,
I began wondering if memory foam would be the mattress for us as.
Then I read everything you wrote about what they are made of, and, suffice it to say, I am no longer interested in a memory foam mattress.
Currently, my husband and I sleep on a Simmons Beauty Rest Treasured Enchantment Pillow-top Firm, which we have owned for approximately six years.
My husband sleeps on his back or side, and as I said, he has developed arthritis in one hip and in the small of his back. He is 5'7" and 160 lbs.
I usually sleep on my side or stomach, and also have back issues, although not to the extent that my husband does. I am 5'6" and 125 pounds. We prefer a firm mattress.
I have been reading the different articles on your website, and am thinking that purchasing a latex topper probably makes the most sense at this point.
From what I've read, I am also thinking that the EverEden 2" Talalay Latex Topper will be best suited for us. Can you please confirm this?
Also, can you please let me know whether you would recommend replacing our mattress for any reason and, if so, what you would recommend replacing it with?
He has been in a great deal of pain (more with his hip than his back), so I would like to do whatever we can to alleviate as much of it as we are able to.
Thank you, Alysia
The arthritis and hip pain requires a softer surface feel. I imagine that your pillowtop was comfortable for you in the early years.
The poly foam in the pillowtop has compressed and now is too firm.
The EverEden 2" soft Talalay latex topper is the first thing to get. It may be all you need at this point. It will certainly make you more and your husband more comfortable.
At your weights, you have put little stress on the coil system, so that is likely to still be ok.
I would stick with a Beautyrest if you need a new mattress...one without a pillowtop.
I suggest you wait until you've added the latex topper before determining that it's necessary. You may be good to go with just the latex topper for several more years.
Here is a link to the EverEden all natural latex toppers.
