A year ago, I bought a Sealy Posturepedic West Salem Firm king firm mattress.
It was great for about 75 days, then began sagging and body contouring causing me hip and leg pain.
I weigh about 245, sleep on back, my wife is 130 side sleeper. We kept it for a year and took it back.
Next, we bought a Beauty-rest Silver BRS900 Extra Firm. It's probably a little to firm and not that comfy.
Although, it's not as bad as the Sealy. I feel it's probably heading down the path of body contouring in places.
We just got back from the in-laws and their 15 year old guest bed has more edge support and less sagging than on 3 month old bed. We only have a couple weeks to return within our sleep trial so need to get something ASAP
I have seen you post some about hybrid innerspring with latex and no memory foam from Wolf.
Do you think that is a good choice?
Is Wolf good for this or is there another brand?
What do you think?
The Wolf Pocketed Coil/Hybrids are an excellent choice.
The Adara is better for your size, but The Tulah is more comfortable...better suited to a female side sleeper.
My wife and I bought a super comfortable Simmons BeautyRest World Class mattress with the pillow top.
That was about 16 years ago. It's now time to replace it. The pillow top has sagged in the last 6-7 years.
We both are side sleepers but she will occasionally lie on her back.
We are not impressed by the memory foam mattresses.
We are considering one of the Natura of Canada Greenspring mattresses.
We are both 6’ tall. I weigh about 250 lbs., and she is about 165 lbs.
What is your recommendation and pricing for the appropriate king size mattress?
I have very good low profile boxes and would hate to replace them.
Thank you, Paul
If those box springs are, also, 16 years old, you’ll risk much to save little.
The price of the set isn’t much more than the price of the mattress alone.
Any mattress you put on those old box springs, will have its warranty immediately voided. And, the mattress will conform to the weak spots in the box springs.
The Natura of Canada Greenspring mattresses use the same type of coil system, as is in your Beautyrest. The coil count is a little higher, but the coils are much stronger, made of double tempered steel.
Simmons does not temper the steel they use...never have.
What’s more, the Natural Talalay Latex is more resilient than the poly foam used in your mattress...which may have a little latex in it....depending on the model.
That information can be found on the white ‘law’ label at the head of your mattress.
And so, all of the Greenspring mattresses are firmer than they sound.
The Ultra Plush model is the most comfortable of the 4...and it’s the one we sleep on at home.
We are, each, over 200 lbs and our mattress remains in like new condition, despite being almost 6 years old.
It’s a very high quality mattress.
Here is a link to that line of mattresses. Scroll down to find the Ultra Plush.
