I've been reading your blog and it’s amazing how many similarities I’m seeing with other people. BTW, I’m from Canada.
Here’s my problem. I’m primarily a side sleeper. In the last six months, I have experienced a compressed disc in my neck which has made it all but impossible to sleep on my right side.
So in response, I’ve been sleeping more on my left side and my back. Now I’m beginning to experience pains in my left shoulder. I’m a fairly heavy man, 5’10” tall and weigh 250 lbs.
We’ve had a Springwall mattress for about 8 years, a pillow top that has some definite grooves from the years.
I can really tell that the mattress has deteriorated because if I sleep in the middle, where neither my wife or I normally sleep, I am much more comfortable.
My wife is also experiencing some pain, with her it is primarily in her hips, and she does feel her legs go numb at times as well. She is around 5’7” and weighs about 160 lbs.
My question is, should we invest in a new mattress and box spring. Do we need to replace the box spring, how would we know?
I’m definitely sold on the latex toppers, but what firmness should I get? Any recommendation on a new mattress?
I really like the Beautyrest, but can’t find comparable models to yours, in Canada… all are the pillow top, and I feel like I should really stay away from thick tops with my weight.
I know I’ll end up with deep body marks otherwise.
Can you recommend something for us, that you can deliver to Canada?
I do have something for you, which includes Free White Glove Delivery and No Sales Tax...throughout Canada.
And the quality is very high. My wife and I, each about 225 lbs., have had one of these mattresses for more than a year...and showing NO Signs of wear...not even the slightest body impression.
When I roll to the middle, to be closer to my honey, There is No Difference in the feel of the mattress.
Made by Natura of Canada, their Greenspring line uses the same pre-compressed individually pocketed coil system as the Simmons Beautyrest.
The differences are:
- A Higher Coil Count
- Stronger Coils, Made of Double Tempered Steel, (Simmons does not tempered the steel they use in the Beautyrests)
- And, These Mattresses are Already Upholstered with Natural Talalay Latex...containing NO MEMORY FOAM
The most comfortable of the 5 available models is the Plush Eurotop...and does not require a separate latex topper purchase.
Here is a link to that line.
It's a good bet that your boxspring needs to be replaced, as well.
Remove your mattress and push down on the boxspring. If completely rigid throughout the surface, then it's fine.
If you feel any soft spots, then you need to replace it. The soft spots are more likely to be at the points that support the heaviest parts of you...and where you sit.
Delivery is Free and there's NO SALES TAX
