Currently my husband and I are sleeping on a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper, which is 5 years old and has taken to squeaking. My husband is a lobsterman who carries 70 plus lb traps daily. He is 6 foot 235 lbs, I am 5 feet 125 lbs. He has DDD, mild scoliosis, and constant tight muscles in his middle back. We need a new mattress and have no idea where to start. Do we need firm mattress, or a pillow top, or memory foam, like Tempurpedic. Should we have a box spring or be sleeping on a platform bed? On top of this, we both sleep on our stomachs.
Your advice would be appreciated. Thank you! Jessica

Memory foam will make matters worse. With it, you'll experience what countless others experience...an increase in pain.
As stomach sleepers, you will require a firm mattress for proper spinal alignment. However, your husband's job is physically demanding and puts a lot of strain on his muscular system.
This will require cushioning. Latex foam does everything that memory foam claims to do and doesn't.
Since the 1920s, it's been the best material available. Unlike memory foam, it doesn't sleep hot and you don't sink through it. It will relieve all of the pressure points and provide real relaxation for his sore muscles. As a bonus, latex is extremely resilient. It absorbs much of your body weight, leaving less work for the mattress...extending the life of your new sleep system.
With a latex topper, you can expect twice the life from the mattress than you would get without it.
My recommendation for you is the Ever-Eden 9" all-natural latex foam mattress, which consists of 6" of Dunlop latex for support and 3" of softer Talalay Latex for comfort.
