Most people, who step out of a 20 year time warp, make the assumption that mattresses are still made as well today, as they had been 20 years ago.
They aren't...for the most part.
VOC off gassing and lack of durability is a big part of today's mattresses...especially among the name brands.
It's the memory foam that has caused all of the problems. And so, it's the memory foam you need to avoid.
The mattress I recommend for you, is the same type of mattress that we sleep on at home.
Individually pocketed coils contour to the shape of your body and maintain the natural alignment of your spine.
A high coil count with coils made of double tempered steel for durability.
For comfort and added durability, these mattresses are upholstered with natural Talalay Latex...latex being the best upholstery material for the past 100 years.
The brand is Natura of Canada, and the line is Greenspring. There are 5 choices of comfort in this line. The Liberty Plush Eurotop is the most comfortable of them.
This mattress is 13" thick. I would suggest waiting until the mattress is in place, before deciding if it needs to be raised to suit your headboard.
If you need something to make it higher, I suggest a lo-profile boxspring, which you can pick up at Sam's Club or Costco for about $100.00
When it comes to pillows, nothing is more comfortable or lasts as long as latex pillows.
At this next link, there are 2 from the Pure Talalay Bliss Company.
The first is extremely soft and comfy.
The second is specially made to relieve chronic neck pain.
