I am looking for a new mattress and am considering latex and memory foam. I have visited too many mattress stores and have tried too many mattresses and it is getting very confusing. I am 48 years old, 6' 1", and 175 lbs. and am experiencing hot spots on the front of my shoulders (from bicep tendonitis), outside pelivis, and knees (arthritis). Yes, way too much sports as a youth. I sleep on my side and stomach mostly but spend most of my night tossing and turning (a life-long tendency). My wife is a sound sleeper and does not move too much. We sleep on a four year old Simmons firm queen mattress with a foam pillowtop. It has served us well and my wife has no issues with it. The Simmons design seems to have limited my wife's exposure to my restless sleeping. I am looking for a new mattress that will improve my sleeping experience. I recently tried a Sealy SpringFree Whistlewood (or Fairway Dunes?)and it felt very comfortable in the showroom. In your experience, does this mattress seem like a fit for me? I have been dissapointed with the memory foam beds so far. I don't like the sinking feeling of the Tempur-Pedics. The Sealy True Form feels very good but I don't get the initial delight when I lay down on it like get from the Sealy SpringFree. Any suggestions you may have are greatly appreciated.
Best regards, Dave
P.S. Great blog - unique and informative.
Thanks Dave, You seem to have your answer. The latex will hold its shape much better than memory foam. It doesn't get hot, like memory foam. The contouring support will cause you to toss and turn less, giving you a much deeper night's sleep.
There are other models in the line without a pillowtop. they'll all do the same job.
