Hello Peter, this is Cindy. I just spoke with you over the phone about the latex topper. Here is a link to the Diamond Mattress we purchased. It is the Generations Escape model in Luxury Plush (tight top). http://www.diamondmattress.com/Diamond-Mattress/Beds/Mattress/Generations/Escape.aspx. I am 5'7" 135lbs my husband is 6'1" 290 lbs. My concerns are back relief and support and a non-toxic mattress. Do you think purchasing a latex mattress would be best? Or just the topper? Thanks, Cindy
Your mattress is upholstered with plant based memory foam.
While it is not toxic, it is temperature sensitive...as is regular memory foam.
It softens when it warms from the heat your body gives off, which allows you to sink too far.
This, is what's causing the back pain.
Before buying anything, flip your mattress over and dress it as you normally would.
Write to me tomorrow, after sleeping on the underside tonight.
We can then figure out what is the best course of action.
So we flipped over mattress last night and the other side was a little too hard. I must admit I was tossing and turning all night, a little too firm for our comfort. I did not wake up sore though.
That's good. Just what I was hoping to hear.
That means that you don't need a new mattress.
The underside is providing support enough for your backs.
Now, all you need is a latex topper to soften the surface.
You'll find that latex is much more comfortable than memory foam.
It won't collapse on you, the way memory foam does.
Two inch of soft Talalay latex will do the job.
Here is the link. You can order it on line.

Hi Peter, We purchased the latex topper yesterday and just wanted to make sure we flip our mattress over and place the latex topper on top of the underside, right?
I like that best, for optimum support to go along with the new surface softness.
I believe this to be better for your body in the long term.
But hey, I'm up for whatever allows you to sleep well...so, try it both ways.
