I am SO grateful to finally find your site. I am surprised that after months of looking I only found it by accident through another link today.
Well, at least all my research made it possible for me to recognize an expert when I finally found one.
It started with looking for new mattress for my husband and me. Our mattress is "fine" but then we are not much on comfort and just take whatever... but they are 22 years old so I thought I "should" replace them. Two twin mattresses on a solid wood platform - Simmons Gibraltar (with "individually wrapped beauty rest coils"). I was told when I purchased them "this is too hard for you - made for very heavy people".
(My husband and I are 120 and 150 lbs). I guess they were right since the mattresses look EXACTLY like the day we bought them - they do not bend at all when you sit on the edge, middle, anywhere.
It's like sleeping on the ground but with a pad.
Anyway, we are now 58 and 68 and he still doesn't want to change, but I wake up hurting every morning... numb hands, aching shoulder (I am a side sleeper).
After my research I decided to go with Latex - but then MORE choices.
After all that I have looked at - it seems that our mattresses might be just fine and that I just need a 2 inch Talalay topper since my mattress is like a foundation already.
But now I have no idea if I should get a soft or a medium? or a soft 2 inch or a medium 3 inch.
Can you help?
I know it is an impossible task to guess other people's needs but you seem to have an ENORMOUS amount of experience and intuition... you are like the Mattress Whisperer. :)
I also want to get a bed for my mother (FIRST priority) but she is 85 and has the idea that "latex is bad" so an entire bed for her might not work.
She has terrible sciatica and disc problems (no doubt her horrible hammock of a bed) and she wants to get the Sealy Posturepedic in Firm.
Could you recommend one for her? I would then get her your Soft Talalay 2 inch topper (do you suggest soft or medium)?
I cannot thank you enough for whatever help you can give.
Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to read some before asking your question.
You have the answer for you and your husband's needs. The EverEden 2" soft Talalay topper is the one to get for your beds. You won't sink through it.
Latex holds you up, suspended, relieving the pressure points and optimizing muscular relaxation.
You can go with the 3" soft Talalay if you want to indulge yourself in a more luxurious feel...but truthfully, the 2" soft Talalay is all you need.
(Latex...Good. Memory Foam...Bad).
It's very well made and reasonably priced.
The Wolf Latex Hybrid Adara mattress strikes me as the perfect mattress for your mom....providing excellent support and comfort, without being too soft.
