Peter, You seem to have so much expertise in this area. I feel like I am
taking a continuing ed course just reading your blog -Mattress 101. Are
you familiar with the Stearns & Foster Luxury Mattress Collection, Ingrid mattress?.
A friend told me that this line is geared towards platform beds with no
box spring required. I am currently researching mattresses and the more
time I spend investigating, the more unsure I am. My back is currently
killing me at night from my Simmons Beauty Rest which is 2 yrs old. Your
postings had me sold on latex, but my pocketbook says no way. I
previously owned foam mattresses(polyurethane I think) which I always
had success with for at least 7-8 yrs on my platform bed with 16 slats.
So since I cant afford a latex mattress, I was considering a decent Sealy
as a base with a latex topper. Does this make sense? Do you have any
suggestions? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all the great
info you provide. Debbie
Platforms work just as well as boxsprings.
There is no specially designed mattress for a platform bed. The better the quality, the better it will hold up...regardless of boxspring or platform.
The Ingrid is the same as our Heidi, model names differ from store to store.
No matter where you buy it, or what name it has, it's a well made mattress.
