My husband & I purchased a queen-sized Sealy bed in early 2008 that is a thick foam, probably 10” – 12”. I think it is latex – but I am not sure, it may be memory foam.
It gives us no problems as far as comfort and is wearing very well. When I flip it over, which is a chore because it is VERY heavy, both sides sleep the same.
Our only complaint is that when both of us are in bed, the bed gets so hot after about 2-3 hours that we can’t stand it. Neither of us get a good night’s rest until one of us goes to the guest bedroom.
We don’t really want to replace the mattress. So, I purchased a mattress pad made with Outlast material, no help; I’ve replaced our down comforter with a lighter weight wool one – small improvement, but still sweating too much.
I read through several of your blogs and came across one about the Chili Bed topper – but noticed you stopped carrying them?
So, I guess my question is – what would you suggest – replace the mattress with..? or buy a topper (which one??)?
I am 64”/130lbs and my husband is 72”/190lbs. I am a side sleeper and he alternates between side/back.
Thank you for any help you can give!
I find it odd that the bed doesn't sleep hot with only one of you in bed...and does with both of you in it.
My issue with The Chili Pad, was that they took a very long time to ship.
We bought and used one and were very pleased with the result.
Since there's nothing wrong with your mattress, The Chili Pad sounds like an ideal solution for you.
You will be able to set the temperature to your precise comfort level.
It would be best to buy one from a retailer that stocks them, so that you won't have to wait.
An Important Note:
Any kind of moisture, be it from spills, accidents or perspiration causes a mattress to wear prematurely.
Protect your investment with high quality, Waterproof Mattress and Pillow Protectors that sleep cool and won't shrink.
