I currently have a sterns and foster firm mattress that I purchased about 7 years ago. I don’t think I should have ever bought a firm in the first place because from day one it was a hard night’s sleep…however, my body adjusted to it. Well as of late, I suffer from neck and lower back problems ( I doubt bed related). I am going to a chiropractor now and it seems that when I sleep on my firm bed I wake up with my whole back aching in the morning. Once I get out the bed the aching stops…this results in sleepless nights as I toss and turn to get comfortable. Well, on the advice of my chiropractor I slept in my guest bed which is sterns and foster lux euro pillow top……I slept very well with no back pain at first but after a while it was so so sleep. I purchased a foam topper from Sam’s Club for my firm bed…the first couple of nights it was painful but then my body started to adjust. I returned the topper because I kept thinking that it didn’t really help the problem. Tonight I went into the mattress store and found the sterns and foster lux hybrid april rose bed. I absolutely love it…but it is pricey and I am apprehensive about spending that much on a bed. It was very comfortable though. I see on your blog that you suggest a firm mattress for back problems…is there something that I am missing? Would a good topper solve my problems? What do you think of the Stearns and Foster Lux Hybrid April Rose bed? Thank you so much for your help! Teresa
While reading your question, I was reminded of a scene in the Godfather movie. Vito stands, at the meeting of the heads of the Five Families and says, "How did thing ever get so far? It was so unfortunate, so unnecessary."
You suffered too long with a too firm mattress unnecessarily. When you did go with a topper to soften the surface you bought the wrong type, unfortunately. Memory foam softens and sinks after it warms from your body's heat...as if it wasn't even there. It's absolutely useless for your application...not to mention the toxicity of it from the chemicals that are used to make it.
Save your money. There has been a good solution for your problem all this time. Latex foam is all natural and far more resilient than memory foam. It is not temperature sensitive and provide extraordinary surface comfort that lasts for many years. We use one at home that is 5 years old and still in like new condition.
Here is the link to the latex topper...2" of soft Talalay Latex is all you need to transform your mattress into the comfortable mattress you had wanted from the beginning.
