I'm very interested in your Greenspring Liberta Luxury mattress but a little concerned because I’m not able to try the mattress. First of all, I noticed that the mattress contains wool.
I have a problem with wool clothing in that it makes me itch and I’ll end up getting red from it.
Will this be a problem with the mattress. Also not sure if I need Firm or Plush.
Secondly I have broken my back 5 Times and have a lot of problems sleeping at night.
I bought a Tempurpedic mattress which I exchanged for a softer one because I was unable to sleep comfortably at night. The comfort level did not improve with the new one and I have put up with it now for five years.
I tried several mattresses today including the Simmons Beautyrest Black, Serra and Stearns and Foster.
I found that the plush models were often too soft and didn’t provide enough support.
I would like a mattress that is supportive but comfortable and doesn’t wake me up at night with sore hips and shoulders when I try sleeping on my side. Maybe I am asking for too much from a mattress.
Buying a mattresses that comes rolled up in a box makes me a bit apprehensive.
I like the idea of a person having to install it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
73 years old and haven’t had a good night’s sleep in over 15 years.
Thanks so much, Diana
Good Morning Diana,
All of those mattresses that you tried and didn’t work for you have one thing in common that made it impossible for you to get comfortable.
They are all upholstered with memory foam.
Despite all the hype to the contrary, memory foam is the worst upholstery material ever invented.
It’s a temperature sensitive material that softens as it warms from your body heat.
You then sink into it…further and further as the weeks and months go by.
You’ve lost the alignment of your spine and you’re hitting the firmer materials that support it. Memory foam is specifically designed to cause a mattress to need frequent replacing…and not under the terms of the warranty.
Memory foam has many negative side effects and is simply a poor quality product.
And as if all that weren’t bad enough, memory foam off gasses the toxic chemicals from which it’s made.
Trying before you buy was the way to go about all this back in the day before memory foam came to dominate the industry.
Now, it’s nothing more than a bad habit, since memory foam is so highly deceptive.
The Natura of Canada Greenspring Ultra Plush Mattress is what my wife and I sleep on at home.
Our mattress is still in like new condition after more than 6 years, with each of us weighing more than 200 lbs.
And even though I have several disc related back problems, I sleep and wake without back pain.
The Ultra Plush model is the most comfortable of their 4 models, without being too soft by anyone’s standards.
That is the mattress I recommend for you.
