My Husband and I are large, "Plus Size" people and we are having one heck of a time finding a mattress that will last.
About a year ago, we decided it was time to buy a new mattress. What a mistake, that was!
After reading some of your blog posts, I should have gotten a latex topper to put on that old mattress. It was still in good shape, just lacked comfort. (A lesson learned too late).
Since then, we have been through 3 mattresses. None of them have help up well and now we are suffering with back and pressure point pain.
Like I said, I've been reading your blog and I know you have what we want. All I need is a recommendation.
My husband is 6' 2" and weighs close to 300 lbs. I am 5' 8" and weigh 225 lbs. We are in our mid 50's and have had no real pain to deal with, except for with these newer mattresses.
I'm seeing how you recommend the Simmons Beautyrest Black mattress with a latex topper.
I'm also seeing a number of recommendations for Natura Greenspring mattresses.
Are these what you would recommend for us.
Thank you, so very much, for all the help you provide.
You are correct. I have what you want...mattresses that hold up well under plus size people.
It's important that you understand what you need...what you want to avoid...and why.
For that, I'd like you to read this...a more comprehensive view on the subject:
You are right about the recommendations.
To accommodate your husbands size, the Simmons Beautyrest Black Calista extra firm is the mattress I'd recommend from that series.
The problem with that choice is overcoming the extra firm feel of the mattress to relieve the pressure points of a female body....specifically at the hip.
For that reason, along with the fact that it's a much better made mattress, I'm recommending the Natura Greenspring.
In comparing the two lines, the Natura Greenspring has:
- A higher coil count
- Double tempered steel coils for greater durability. (The coils in the all of the Simmons mattresses are made of raw steel...not tempered at all)'
- The upholstery is natural Talalay Latex and contains NO Memory Foam. (Simmons uses memory foam as it's primary upholstery)
Over-all, the quality of the Natura Greenspring is much higher.
My wife and I are, each, in the 225 lb range. We've had one of these mattresses for a year and there is not even the slightest sign of wear.
The pocketed coils provide excellent support and the latex is plenty comfy.
The Liberty Plush Eurotop is the softest of the 5 models in the line.
The Liberty Ultra Plush has that in between feel that many people like...not too firm and not too soft.
Here is a link to those mattresses.
