I am 68 years old, female, weigh 297, sleep on my side, like a firm mattress, but put pad on top for more softness.
I have been looking around and everyone is suggesting the Beautyrest Black series (which I slept on at a hotel and loved it with a 4” down mattress cover).
Would you suggest that mattress for me? Which model? Do you sell them? What about a topper? My son told me to forget the down and go latex.
I also tried the latex beds, too expensive for me, and too hard as well.
I would appreciate your help and to be able to purchase things from you as well.
Of all the commercially made, one sided mattresses, the Simmons Black is a best buy...and especially for a large person. My wife and I have a Black model with a latex topper. We are, each, over 200 pounds and the mattress still looks and feels like new after the 16 months we've had it. And if that's all you had to choose from, I'd suggest going with the strongest and firmest of them, the Bray model, for someone in the 300 pound range. Shown here:
However, there is an alternative that is stronger still, and less expensive. It's more an old fashioned mattress, in that it is two sided. Also, it has no memory foam in it, which is a good thing for a number of reasons...memory foam's lack of durability among them.
It isn't a commercially made model, but one of four we have made for us by the Therapedic Company, called Cameo Firm. In other words, it's not something you can try anywhere.
Here is the link for that mattress...showing the specifications and pricing.
