I’m presently awaiting word on warranty for my Stearns/Sealy mattress and was hoping you could help out a bit. Your site is quite informative and seeing the “levels” of current mattresses is really handy.
I was hoping that you might know the level of my non current mattresses. We started with a Stearns Swanwick that lasted almost 5 years. When it failed we opted for a Sealy SpringFree Beachside latex (overstatement) which is now mush after 4 years.
I’d like to go at my local dealer armed with as much info as possible which I did not do when I did the Beachside replacement. I’m looking to draw some sort of comparison to my old models and if you could help that would be great.
You have a couple of good options open to you...none of which is an equivalent replacement for the Beachside.
Sealy owned S&F. Now, Tempurpedic owns them both. Sealy stopped making the SpringFree line, shortly after you bought your Beachside.
They re-introduced it using the S&F label as the Stearns & Foster Luxury Latex Collection.
That too, is now discontinued. I don't believe Tempurpedic is interested in selling latex...only memory foam.
The problem with your mattress is not the latex, but the soft poly foam that is on top of the latex. It's that 2" of poly foam that has mushed up on you.
You can't get an equivalent replacement from them now, since none exisits.
Rather than fool around with all the junk memory foam they have to offer, I suggest that you flip that mattress over.
You'll find that the unfinished underside shows the firm latex core...with no poly foam.
Once you flip it, you'll see that the mattress is now quite firm...likely to be too firm to sleep on comfortably.
All you need to do is to add 2" of soft, all natural Talalay latex to that, and you will be good to go for many more years.
Together, you'll have all the comfort and support you need...comfort and support that won't wear out like the poly foam on the top side of the mattress.
It will be your most cost effective, long term solution.
The other option is an all latex mattress from pure LatexBliss...the finest quality Talalay Latex for the last 60 years.
