Hello. My husband and I are in search of a new mattress (king). He is 6’1 and 165 lbs (side and back sleeper) and I am 5’3 and 112 lbs (side sleeper). He has a degenerative disc that gives him problems several times a year. I don’t have any issues that need to be addressed by the mattress. I prefer somewhat firm mattress that you can also sink into. Our mattress is around 17 years old! Any recommendations? Despite our best intentions, I expect this mattress will need to last us a long time! Thank you, Nancy (Atlanta)
After 17 years, I guess that you are fully expecting that today's mattresses are made as well as they were back then.
Things have changed, dramatically, since then...and not for the better.
Today's mattresses are one sided and filled with memory foam. Both of these changes have reduced the quality and longevity of mattresses, especially the name brands.
We do, however, carry a well made double sided mattress with no memory foam, that will last you a very long time.
Designed and engineered by me, and made by Therapedic, the Keepsake Cameo in plush has the feel you describe and the longevity you're expecting.
