I recently purchased two Sealy Optimum mattress sets at Macy's in Florida that I will be returning after sleeping on for less than 30 Days.
I told salesman I had had back surgery five years ago and needed recommendations .
These mattresses are already sinking in. I weigh 130lbs!!!!
I had purchased a 2nd set for my guest room so I moved to that room to compare, Same Issue!!!
He now recommends I try Simmons Comforpedic pillowtop mattress.
Do you recommend this? Can you make any other recommendations?
From the input you have said in other responses it seems to me that I should be looking for no pillow top.
Do you recommend inner springs ?
I can not afford to go into the latex all foam mattresses.
I have to make this exchange in the next 30 days and do not want to make another mistake
Any advise would be appreciated.
Thank you, Leigh
Your first and most damaging mistake was to tell your salesman about your back surgery. This is information you share with people who know what to do about it. Most of today's mattress salespeople know little about the products they sell, let alone about how to match up a physical ailment.
You told him and assumed he'd know what mattress was best for you. Salespeople are trained to appear knowledgeable....how to make you trust them, without having the knowledge worthy of that kind of trust. It would be better to know what you want before you go shopping. You can research anything on-line.
It's clear that your back will require firm support. As a female side sleeper, you also need some cushioning to relieve the pressure at the hip. What good is a cushy mattress when that padding compresses so quickly and easily?...as yours has.
Start with stronger mattress and add a layer of soft latex, which will not compress. Latex is the highest quality upholstery material available. There is no substitute for quality. And when you have a sensitive back, the sleep system you choose has to feel as it needs to years from now, as it is when new.
Try the Simmons Beautyrest World Class Saratoga in firm. It's the same as our Annapolis Place, shown here:
This is where you get the latex topper:
2" of soft Talalay latex will do the trick for you.
