You have great information available and I appreciate your willingness
to assist everyone in their search for the "perfect" mattress! I am a
side sleeper and my current mattress is slightly too firm for me. I
sometimes wake with shoulder/hip pain. My partner is a stomach/back
sleeper. I believe I need to find a mattress that is basically in the
middle as far a plushness goes. I am trying to decide between the S&F
Sheila and the Jacalyn. My current thought is to buy a firmer
mattress and add a latex topper. Which of these 2 mattresses would be
the better choice? I want a longer life mattress without the fear of the
dreaded body indentions..hence the changeable topper. I appreciate your
First off, I don't believe in a "perfect mattress". I believe in the value of getting a good night's sleep and not paying a whole lot for it....and the value in getting the most for your money. A mattress will start to wear the moment you start using it. When newly made it's a little tight and a liitle firm. Somewhere along the way, it's "Perfect". Then it waers some more and isn't perfect anymore.
I wouldn't recommend either one of those for what you have in mind. To begin with, they are the same mattress at two different stores. The thing I don't like about them is the 1" of memory foam, which tends to lose it's shape much too quickly.
A stomach sleeper will prefer a firmer mattress than that mattress without a topper. Add a topper to it and it's way too soft.
You are much better off spending less for the mattress, the Heidi in luxury firm and add a latex topper to that. You'll have better support for a stomach sleeper and all the surface comfort you needs for pressure point relief. It'll cost you less and be more perfect longer.
