Currently my husband and I are sleeping on a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper, which is 5 years
old and has taken to squeaking. My husband is a lobsterman who carries 70 plus lb traps daily.
He is 6 foot 235 lbs, I am 5 feet 125 lbs. He has degenerative disk syndrome, mild scholiosis,
and constant tight muscles in his middle back. We need a new mattress and have no idea where
to start. Do we need firm mattress, or a pillow top, or memory foam, like Tempurpedic. Should we
have a box spring or be sleeping on a platform bed? On top of this, we both sleep on our stomachs.
Your advice would be appreciated.
Memory foam will make matters worse. With it, you'll experience what countless others experience...an
increase in pain.
As stomach sleepers, you will require a firm mattress for proper spinal alignment. However, your
husband's job is physically demanding and puts a lot of strain on his muscular system.
This will require cushioning. Latex does everything that memory foam claims to do and doesn't.
Since the 1920s, it's been the best material available. Unlike memory foam, it doesn't sleep hot
and you don't sink through it. It will relieve all of the pressure points and provide real relaxation
for his sore muscles. As a bonus, latex is extremely resilient. It absorbs much of your body weight,
leaving less work for the mattress...extending the life of your new sleep system.
With a latex topper, you can expect twice the life from the mattress than you would get without it.
Here are links to the combination sleep system that works for most...and will work for you.
