I'm 5'4" and weigh 150 lbs. I have pain issues that haven't been diagnosed but suspect arthiritis and maybe even fibromalagia.
Neck pain (which only a down pillow, which needs replacing, has been the only pillow that really works best for keeping my neck pain free), shoulder pain, elbow pain, lower back pain are my biggest issues.
I'm a side sleeper but dream of sleeping on my tummy and back more. Need to purchase a new bed.
Been using a full size "Slumberon Maxima plush comfort for the last seven eight years and was given to us. It actually has been a very comfortable bed till I started have arthiritis setting in.
I'm so excited to have found your site. Was about to purchase a Sealy luxury firm or pillow top from Sams club but hesitated which one would be better for my issues. That hesitation led me to you.
A firm bed can cause my lower back to hurt. My guest room mattress is a Oracle innerspring mattress with insulation cushioning foam.
It feels like a firm and Its in great shape and thinking of putting a latex topper on that to start to see what that would do as a test for me.
But, will have to leave it for my guests so I need a mattress and topper recommendation from you.
My husband weighs guessing 200-225 and can sleep on anything so he says so my comfort is his top priority.
We are looking for a queen size, but I dream of a king to spread out. Anyway, to put it short, with my height, weight, and pain issues, which mattress do you recommend and topper?
I am telling all my family about your site and story!
Thank you so very much for helping many!
I checked out your mattress and it seems like a very simple design.
From your question, I'm gathering that the mattress is still in decent shape, but your increased sensitivity due to arthritis/fibro, has made the surface of the mattress uncomfortable for you.
If this is the case, logic dictates that we explore your options...other than automatically jumping to a new mattress.
And feeding into all of this, quite nicely, is that you have a spare room bed that will benefit from a latex topper.
So, my suggestion is to start with the latex topper...and Ever-Eden 2" Soft Talalay, shown here:
I'm guessing that this is all you'll need to make your master bedroom mattress comfortable enough for you.
If so, then order a second one for your guestroom.
If not, move it to your guestroom and choose a new mattress for your master bedroom.
The mattress I would recommend is one that we have ordered for our master bedroom.
And while we have not yet given it "The Test", we find it to be very comfortable and I am impressed with the quality of the materials used.
The mattress is the Natura Greenspring Liberty Ultra Plush...shown here:
Greenspring Liberty Plush Euro Top. Experience deeper, more restorative sleep with the Liberty Plush Euro Mattress. Lush helpings of natural ingredients come together ...
This mattress is already upholstered with natural Talalay Latex...so no separate topper purchase is necessary.
It has the highest coil count of it's type and the coils are twice tempered for durability.
Finaly, your neck pain. As you stated, a down pillow works best. But, they flattenout quickly and need frequent replacing.
We carry a pillow from Pure Bliss, made of 100% natural Talalay latex that is finely chopped.
The finely chopped latex acts like a down pillow, in that you can mold it around your head and neck anyway you like.
It has all of the benefits of a Down pillow, but lasts for years.
It's the 2nd pillow on our Pillows page, and is called Latex/Down...shown here:
