Hi, my husband and I recently bought a Stearns and Foster Shantel luxury firm mattress. I have a herniated disc that causes lower back pain and sciatica every now and then. Sleeping on this mattress causes me to wake up with a little pain, but I have always been told that firm mattresses are good for back pain. We are still within our 21-day trial period and are considering an exchange. I love the mattress, with the exception of the pain. Do you have any suggestions or know of a
mattress similar that may be just slightly more plush?
The nice thing about having purchased a mattress that is a little too firm, is that you can soften the top with a topper or thicker mattress pad...depending on how much softer you want it to be. If you had gone with the lexury plush model and found it too soft, you wouldn't be able to make that adjustment.
The mattress you bought is the right firmness for your disc problems. You just need a little more surface comfort.
There is a cost for an exchange...delivery fee and restocking fee. And even after you've made the exchange, you can't be sure you'll be happy with the second one. Comfort exchanges are usually a one time thing and if you're not happy with the second one, you're just stuck.
Add to your mattress, a 2" soft latex topper and your mattress will feel wonderful. The latex toppers don't wear out like other types of toppers and should last the life of the mattress.
Here is a link to the latex toppers we carry. They are 100% natural Tatalay latex made in the US.
