Hi Peter. We have a six year old Simmons Beautyrest queen-size pillowtop mattress that hasn't met our expectations. Though we weren't sure we wanted a pillow top when we got it, we listened to the sales advice. We've tried to rotate it once or twice a year even though it can't be flipped. Based on what I've read I suspect that our need for a two-piece box spring has also contributed to the two valleys. My wife's pelvis/hip problem and my disk issues are becoming unbearable and we need to so something fast.
I've read through much of your blog and it's evident that the central theme is latex. My question is this: Would we be able to flip the Beautyrest, putting the pillow-top down, and then use a 2" latex topper? Is the mattress without the pillow-top the same top and bottom or would the available support be different or inadequate? Thanx!! Cory
The good thing about giving that a try is that you lose nothing by doing so.
The bonus is the possibility of putting off that purchase.
The underside of the mattress is quite a bit stiffer than the top, but the latex topper is comfy, even on the floor. So, give it a whirl. You have nothing to lose.
