Following our trip to South Africa we tried your suggestion of turning our Tempurpedic mattress over and then adding the Topper.
We tried this arrangement for 3 nights. No improvement. Both my wife and I were very hot at various times throughout the 3 nights.
I think we're out of options and need to find a new mattress. Is your recommendation a Simmons Beautyrest mattress? Are these mattresses foam-free?
While in South Africa, we had no problem with sleeping hot. I tried to determine the mattress manufacturers at the various places where we stayed, but without success.
Some of the mattresses had no easily found identification and others had foreign names such as Forty Winks.
So I think we need a new mattress and your recommendation will be appreciated.
I look forward to your response, and thanks.
Oddly enough, "Forty Winks" was the name of a small mattress retail chain in the Philadelphia/South Jersey area, quite a few years ago.
We home tested a number of different brands and types of mattresses.
The one we currently have is the best so far.
It uses an individually pocketed coil unit that is made of double tempered steel. The upholstery is natural Talalay latex.
We are large people. After a year, there is no signs of wear, no body impressions.
The pocketed coils support well, the latex is comfortable and sleeps cool...containing NO Memory Foam.
The brand is Natura of Canada. The line is called Greenspring.
There are 5 models in the line, with the Liberty Plush Eurotop being the most comfortable of them.
Here is a link to the the Natura Greenspring line:
