I have been reading your info for over an hour and have a couple questions.
I healed our back pain by removing our mattresses and getting 2 twin airbeds with king 2" foam topper.
Now my husband wants a real mattress again.
We almost bought a Stearns and Foster Mattress, this week, and so glad we didn't. I hate memory foam.
My husband is 6'1" 240 lbs., with dense muscle mass. He works hard. I am 5'6" 180 lbs., and very active.
We are nearly 50 and hurt by the end of the day. We need good sleep.
We are side sleepers and sometimes both stomach sleepers.
I am considering 2 twin xl instead of the king to reduce sag.
Maybe that doesn't matter with better built mattresses.
I see a couple of your recommendations like the Natura Blossom Latex Mattresses and the Wolf brand.
Which is better for both healing bodies and longevity? And are there more to consider?
I am eager for your advice and ready to order!
Lastly, our new home does not have very high ceilings, so I plan to put our mattress on strong plywood, skip the box springs, and ultimately not hit our heads on the ceiling fan.
Plus, I like sleeping cooler and closer to the ground than the ceiling.
Look forward to your input. Thank you in advance for your kind help.
Good Morning Ruth,
Latex foam is and has been the best upholstery material for the last 100 years.
It’s the most resilient, longest last and ideal for relaxing over worked muscles and pressure point relief.
Given that your situation improved with an air mattress, a latex mattress is your best choice.
The Natura of Canada Blossom in Plush is also very comfortable.
Since there is a sizable difference in weight between you, it’ll be important to rotate your mattress on a regular basis…once a month for the first year, once every three months thereafter.
A solid base platform is the perfect support for that mattress.
The choice of 2 Twin-XL mattresses has its pros and cons.
The biggest drawback is the center, which can be overcome with a cinch strap.
Like this one on Amazon.
The other drawback is the price.
The advantage is that you can rotate each mattress separately.
His side is more likely to need replacing before your side, which makes it less expensive to replace.
But latex lasts a very long time. And if you rotate it regularly, it shouldn’t be a problem.
Also, if one of you wants firm and the other wants plush is another advantage of getting 2 Twin-XL.
My vote would be for a one piece king.
Here’s a link to the Natura Blossom Latex Mattress in Plush, which provides firm support, with a cool and comfortable sleeping surface.
Delivery is FREE and there’s NO Sales Tax.
The choice of firm isn’t suitable for the curves of a female body.
The thicker, higher end Twilight models are less suitable for a big man.
The more upholstery there is the faster a mattress will wear under 240 lbs.
