We purchased a Stearns & Foster Ellastone mattress and have been very
disappointed with it from the day it was delivered. The mattress smelled
like chemicals for months after delivery and it developed body impressions
within a few months of use.
After 3 years, the mattress had body impressions of 1.5" which
has caused back pain for us. We recently filed a claim with S&F and they
will replace our mattress but not the box springs for our California
king size bed. We'd like a firmer mattress and after reading your blog
I am considering a latex mattress, specifically the S&F Private Vineyard Villa,
Same as your River View Villa, I believe. But I'd like your opinion before making
another bad decision.
My husband weighs 170 lbs and usually
sleeps on his side and I am 120 lbs and usually sleep on my back (I
tend to get hot at night)--will the Private Vineyard be a good match for us?
Thank you so much for your advice and for your great blog!
The Ellastone is an older version S&F, a problem mattress because of all the memory foam they used at that time. The memory foam is near the top and that's causing the body impressions to happen so quickly. The chemical odor would have been reason for an exchange early on. But now, you are considering a S&F latex mattress. You will find latex to be much more durable. If you like a firmer feel, the Private Vineyard Villa is an excellent choice.
