My husband is 6 ft and about 285; I am 5'2", and 120 lbs, and have problems with sciatic pain. Need a suggestion on a bed that would best support his weight, while still offering comfort for my sciatica.Amy
There isn't a mattress that does both jobs well. Mattresses soft enough for you won't be strong enough for him. The solution...the only solution is a mattress firm enough for him with a soft latex topper for both of you. Even your husband needs comfort.
Latex is rubber. It's super resilient, unlike the padding used in most mattresses which compress easily. Latex toppers last for years. Besides cushioning the surface of the mattress, the topper will also extend the life if the mattress by absorbing much of your body weight.
Here are links to the mattress that will hold him and the toppers. 2" of soft Talalay will do job.
