I need a mattress recommendation for a larger than average person...my husband.
The problem for me is that I have chemical sensitivity. I can't even tolerate polyurethane foam....let alone, the highly toxic memory foam.
I need a mattress that is chemical free, comfortable, and durable enough to hold up under my husband's size.
What do you have to offer me?
Avoiding poly foam is difficult to do. It was invented in the late 1960s and it's been the primary mattress upholstery since the early 1970s.
It is a petro-chemical based product.
In the 40+ years I've been in this business, you are only the 4th person I've run into, who has a poly foam sensitivity.
One of them was recent, the other two were from many years ago.
Oddly enough, all four of you are female.
I only mention that, because there was something else that seems to be unique to females....the fire retardant backing to the fabric, which came out in 1991.
In this case, the result was sleeping hot on mattresses that are not known for sleeping hot.
In each case, the person was a female of menopausal age. And, oddly enough, the sensation of heat dissipated after a few weeks.
But, I digress.
The mattress I'm recommending to you, is the same mattress my wife and I sleep on at home....the Natura Greenspring
It's like the Simmons Beautyrest, in that it has a pre-compressed, individually pocketed coil system...which contours to you and maintains your spine's natural alignment.
The Beautyrest is what most hotels use and for the reason I just mentioned, is extremely popular.
For someone your size, you don't have to worry much about premature wear. But a large person must.
My wife and I are, both, in the 225 lb. range.
The Natura Greenspring coils are twice tempered, while the coils in the Simmons Beautyrest are not tempered.
Also, the Natura's primary upholstery is natural Talalay Latex.
The little bit of poly foam that is used, is all natural plant based poly foam...and is chemical free.
So, no worries there.
Here is a link to that line.
