My husband and I are in the market for a new mattress. Our twelve year old mattress Lemoyne Sleeper Independence and 2 year old latex topper no longer provide a good night's rest for either of us. Christopher is 5'8" and 155 lbs and I am 5'4" and 125 lbs. The trouble is that I have a bad lower back plagued with degenerated discs. Given our size and my back, what would be good mattresses for us to consider? Is it likely that we need a new latex topper as well? Your help would be greatly appreciated as it has been too long since I've slept through the night and/ or not been thrilled to get out of bed to lessen my discomfort. I should say that we also travel a lot and had hoped to find a comfortable bed on the road. Sadly, none within the Hilton chain have worked. The most comfortable bed in the stores so far has been a Serta Perfect Sleeper Franco Pillowtop. However, advice from your site suggests we stay away from that.
Help! :) Andrea
P.S. Flippable would work. I draw the line at fluffing a futon.
Latex toppers typically last a lot longer than a couple of years. You should be able to continue to use the one you have. The one we use at home is 5 years old and still like new.
As for the mattress, a firmer model with your topper will last longer.
