HI Peter, I have purchased a mattress from you in the past and need some
new advice for my sister. She went to a local store to look at the Stearns and Foster and liked
two models. She has 7 herniated discs and neck problems. She is 130 pounds
and likes plush but needs support for her back. The models were GS plush
cushion firm euro pillow top and the Stearns & Foster Shantel euro pillow top. What do
you think of these choices and what do you have that is comparable? She lives
in DE but she is here visiting me and we went to the store in Herndon VA to
try out the models. I told her they always over inflated prices so we are
coming to you for your help. Thanks again for your advice, Cheryl
Good to hear from you. You just may have saved your sister from an expensive and painful mistake.
The GS is slightly different from the regular line, which allows that store to mark it up without worry that you'll find it for less.
The Shantel is the same as our Graciela.
I would recommend neither of them to anyone with back troubles.
The problem with those mattresses is that the initial comfort fades as the memory foam and pillowtops lose their resiliency.
This will leave your sister sleeping with her spine out of its proper alignment within a year's time.
Even though she is light in weight, the memory foam is temperture sensitive and wears from the heat her body gives off.
The good news is that you can go with a lesser expensive model and add 2" of soft latex for the comfort she want.
Latex is not temperature sensitive and her 130 pound frame will be like nothing to the resiliency of latex.
The combination creates a sleep system that is supportive, comfortable and long lasting.
Here's the link to the mattress topper. Latex has been the best for comfort and resiliency for more than 80 years.
Memory foam is a pretender. Latex is the real deal.
