I purchased the Stearns & Foster Villa Daniela Latex Luxury Plush at Macy's about a year ago.
Thought a new bed with help with some back issues, but never got more than a couple of good nights sleep since I've had it.
Granted, during this time, I was treating my back at the chiropractor, so definitely already had issues. I just got diagnosed with a bulging disc and I'm now wondering if this is the right bed for me?
Hard to tell if it's because of my back problems this bed was never comfortable, or whether the bed was making things worse?
Any advice would be appreciated.
The Daniela plush, is likely to be too soft for your condition. The top of that mattress is cushioned with a couple of inches of polyurethane foam, which isn't as resilient as latex.
Bulging discs are the precursor to herniated discs if the discs don't get enough firm support.
The best thing for you to do is to flip your mattress over. You will then be sleeping directly on the firm latex core, which will be a lot better for your back.
It's a cinch that you won't find that side as comfortable as the top. If so, add a layer of latex to soften it, but be careful to not soften it too much...just enough to relax your muscles, which will allow you to sleep more deeply. We normally recommend 2 " of soft talalay latex for that job. First, see how well you sleep. For the sake of your bulging discs, use only as much soft latex as you need. If it seems that you won't need much, then go for the 1.5" of soft talalay latex.
