First, many thanks for sharing your advice and vast expertise
here—it’s a rare and much appreciated service. I’m a 60 y/o
female, 5’8”, 130 lbs, looking for something for a twin platform.
I’m replacing a 5 y/o Sealy PP Adriatic Plush that is now causing
some mild lower back & neck pain. Reading through your Q&A’s,
I’ve narrowed down to either:
1) Simmons Lumberton or Flatbrook Luxury Firm + a 2” soft
Talalay topper (read that this line helps w/spine alignment and
I also like the low heights) or 2) One of your latex models, also
nice low heights on these but have heard they’re quite heavy.
Would someone my size have trouble managing?
About the Pure LatexBLISS (Pamper, Nature, Nutrition): What is
Active Fusion gel? Is it a natural substance and does it affect
wearability of the layers that contain it? The EverEdens don’t
seem to have it. Re the EverEden: 6” w/2” glued or unglued topper.
Expect that leaving the topper unglued would make sense since it
could easily be replaced if/when needed, but would this make a
difference as to how this combo feels and would it slide around/make
the bed look messy?
I’m a side sleeper and have usually done well with medium feel
mattresses but have read that as we age we might need something
a bit softer to address pressure points that need more comfortable
support. Seems that any of the above would provide this but would
appreciate your advice as to what you think might do the best job
given my circumstances.
Thanks very much,
We have the 8" EverEden plush top, unglued, on a platform
bed at home. Our guests love the way it sleeps. I do too, as
this is my escape to mattress when necessary.
The "unglued" option is to keep the mattress 100% chemical
free. The top layer does not shift. They are layers of 100% natural
rubber and they grip each other very well.
The queen was a bit heavy, but manageable. The twin will be
considerably lighter in weight.
At your size, you can't go wrong with either choice. The Beautyrest
mattress and topper is less expensive, provides good support and
But, if you have the means, there's nothing else like the feel of an
all latex mattress. The longevity of the all latex will make it the latex
mattress you'll ever buy.
In the long run, it ends up being your most economical choice.
