I've been reading your blog and I believe you can help me. I have a Tempurpedic Cloud Supreme Mattress that I bought a few short months ago.
At first, it was good. That lasted as long as my trial period. (Funny how that worked out).
Well, the gel that is supposed to keep me cool works for a few hours, then stops working and the mattress heats up.
Also, it's starting to sag a bit, but enough that my disc problems are back with a vengeance.
As I said, I've been reading your blog and believe your latex topper is the answer.
My questions are:
Which topper? I'm 5' 10" tall and weigh 185 lbs.
Also, I've seen you recommending flipping the mattress over before adding the latex topper?
Is this a necessary step?
The reason for flipping the mattress is to give your back the firm support it needs. The memory foam on top of your mattress is supported by a block of high density poly foam, which is not a temperature sensitive material.
You can, certainly, try it both ways, but all reports have flipping the mattress providing the best result.
The underside of the mattress is quite firm...too firm to sleep on comfortable for most people.
You'll add the Ever-Eden 2" Soft Talalay Latex Topper, which you will find very comfortable.
All Natural, chemical free Latex, also, is not a temperature sensitive material and naturally sleep cool.
You won't sink through it, they way you do on memory foam.
It cushions you, but holds you up. "Zero Gravity" is a good description of the feel it provides.
The 2" soft Talalay is the one that gets all the rave reviews and it's what we use at home.
My wife and I are larger people, approx 225 lbs. each. We've been using that same topper for several years and it's still like new.
They wear extremely well.

An Important Note:
Any kind of moisture, be it from spills, accidents or perspiration causes a mattress to wear prematurely.
