My wife and I are on the market for a new king size mattress. I am a side sleeper/stomach sleeper... I had a double disc-ectomy with fusion in my neck 7 years ago, so I think I need the support of a firm mattress.
We've always been posturepedic people, but this time we're thinking of stepping up into a Stearns and Foster.
I've been reading your blog for a while, and feel you'll probably recommend the Reisling Euro Pillow top w/firm cushion (yes?) I haven't been able to find that to try it yet, and I even have your list of other names for the mattress too.
The two S&F mattresses I've found and liked are the Edwardian Room mattress in the Plaza Collection, and the Bouquet mattress in the Provincial Collection, both priced @ $1500 for a king set.
Do you have any thoughts on these two mattresses... and how they compare to the Reisling? (Should I keep looking till I find someplace that I can try that mattress?)
I look forward to your thoughts.
Kind Regards, Chris
Hi Chris, $1500 is the right price for those mattresses. The Edwardian Room and the Bouquet are the same mattress. They are an entry level 0 in the S&F line. They have no memory foam and no latex. The Reisling is a level 4. It's a cushion firm pillowtop...softer than the two you saw, but not a soft bed. If you liked the feel of the the lewer level cushion firm, there's no reason not to buy it. You neck pain is better addressed with a pillow. Most people seem to like the latex pillows.
