My wife & I are about to purchase a CalKing S&F Shantel luxury plush pillowtop.
Please help us understand what's in this mattress and how it compares to others
in the S&F line.
We are big people with a big cat and need room and a sturdy bed! Thanks so much, Phil
I have an uncle Phil. My mother calls him Peter and me, Phil...has been doing that for nearly 60 years. You'd think she'd have gotten us straight by now.
Big Cat, huh? You mean like a lion or a tiger? It wouldn't happen to be that incredibly fat cat I saw on TV a couple of weeks ago, would it?
Anyway, you couldn't make a worse choice for your needs....starting with a plush pillowtop as a no-no for larger people.
That model is the N grade, the same as our Graciela, the starting level in S&F's Estate Collection. It uses an inch of memory foam, which also won't hold up well under heavier people. The Estate coil system uses a dual coil in fewer pockets and with a thinner gauge wire than the less expensive Luxury Collection.
The Estate models are build for greater comfort and conformability. If you're average weight or lighter, that's fine. But, the Lower priced Luxury Collection models have a stronger coil unit, and are a better choice for heavier people.
In the Estate Collection, the P level, Twila is your best choice, which has latex instead of memory foam....aka Michaela in the store that had the Shantel and April at Macy's
A favorite choice for heavier people is the Heidi in luxury firm for support and a 2" soft Talalay latex foam mattress topper for comfort and extended longevity.
