I'm hoping you can help us. Buying a new mattress has us confused and unable to make any progress towards a decision.
We really do not want to over think the mattress question, nor do we want to spend untold amounts of time on this.
I found your site and blog and have done a little reading and research. It seems like you have helped thousands of couples just like us and I was thinking you could do the same for us. Here is our situation.
The Mrs. is 140 lbs, 64" tall and mostly sleeps on her back and I am 225 lbs, 73" tall and I sleep mostly on my back or left side. We have always slept on a traditional full size mattress. The current one is a 14 year old Simmons Beautyrest Achiever Plush and box spring. We have used a feather bed topper for as long as I can remember.
We decided to change from the full to a standard Queen size and need to make a purchase of a new mattress and box spring. My wife wants to go shopping and do the showroom shuffle. Me, not so much. I am of the opinion that this can't be as hard as the retailers and manufactures want you to believe it is. I'm pretty sure we do not want anything with memory foam, air numbers, magic fingers or a several thousand dollar price tag.
What would you recommend?
If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
Much Appreciated, Mark
Both, my wife and I, weigh as much as you do. So let me introduce you to the mattress we sleep on, at home.
We've been sleeping on a Natura of Canada Greenspring Ultra Plush for more than three years...and it shows zero signs of wear. The reason why it's holding up so well, it twofold....A high coil count and those coils made of twice tempered steel & Latex upholstery.
These mattresses contain NO Memory Foam, which is the primary reason today's mattresses wear out so quickly. Your old Beautyrest has no memory foam in it.
These Greenspring models provide excellent support, comfort and longevity...that line, shown here:
The Liberta Firm Mattress delivers improved well being and scrumptious comfort with eco-friendly flair. A layer of NaturaWool™ maintains temperature control and gently buffers pressure points to diminish nighttime tossing and turning.
