We are currently moving from a queen to a king (more room to roll and not wake up the other).
Me: 6’2” 240 lbs
Her: 5’6” 210 lbs
Queen two separate bladder sleep number bed that we dislike.
We do have a mattress topper (wool 2” I think) that has made it livable the last 5 yrs.
I like firm, she likes softer, but not too soft to sink too much.
We both get relatively hot so the wool topper helped that too.
We do like the bounce typical of spring mattresses that we don’t have.
We also had a traditional mattress that had lots of different higher end coils that you couldn’t feel the other person.
We liked that too. Snoring, (nose strips help most of the time), but no other real back problems per se.
What we’re looking for:
King size, firm separate higher end coil/materials with latex topper.
Budget around 4k or so, assuming it’ll last >7 yrs.
We do like a higher bed so unless mattress/pad are >13” regular box is fine.
We have ordered a 4 poster king bed frame with wood cross supports.
I was considering a heavenly bed or one of the nicer hotel mattresses as I get a decent discount via Marriott.
No allergies, but I know down feathers aren’t good for her.
So, if you have a bed set you’d recommend including mattress full wrap protector and pillows with protector.
That would be appreciated. (usually get those at bed bath beyond or amazon)
Never tried a latex pillow so that might be interesting to try as well.
We are looking to make a purchase this week and appreciate the insight/recommendation.
Location is Leesburg VA 20176 and white glove option price would be nice to know as well.
Thank you, Rob
Your email raised a question for me, concerning the 4 poster bed.
There has to be more than just cross supports.
There must be support up the center, (head to foot), with legs that reach the floor.
So, it would be prudent to check on that.
The mattress I’m recommending for you is the same one we sleep on at home.
It uses an individually pocketed coil with the coils made of double tempered steel and natural Talalay Latex upholstery.
The specifications of this mattress far exceed anything Simmons makes.
Even their Heavenly Bed, hotel mattresses, are not made as well...using non-tempered coils and polyurethane foam.
My wife and I are similar in size. Our mattress is, still, in like new condition after more than 4.5 years. What’s more, the cost doesn’t even come close to what you’ve budgeted and will outlast your 7 yr. mark.
That mattress is the Natura of Canada Greenspring Ultra Plush.
The support is quite firm, with a comfortable sleeping surface.
We added a Pure Bliss 3” Plush latex topper to ours, due to my wife’s sensitive hip, which relieved her hip pain. Otherwise, it’s perfectly comfortable just as it comes.
I would suggest holding off on purchasing a latex topper until you get the mattress.
You may not need it.
Here are links to that mattress and latex topper.
Latex is the highest quality upholstery material on the planet.
This has been true for the last 100 years.
Pillows made of latex last far longer than any other type.
Here is a link to our pillows page.
The first two are the most popular. The first is very soft.
The second is made of finely chopped latex, which can be manipulated to fit around your head and neck.
