I need a mattress that can hold a 200 lb woman with fibromyalgia.
But, it also needs to be long lasting to replace a 16 year old pillow top double sided Stearns & Foster mattress. I can’t remember what collection the mattress was at the time, but it was the most expensive available at that time costing around $4,000, if that helps you determine what Stearns & Foster model I’m replacing.
Thank You, Heather
Good Morning Heather,
The first thing that you must understand is that a lot has changed since you bought your S&F mattress.
Tempurpedic now owns S&F.
What used to be the Cadillac of the Industry is now nothing more than expensive junk…all due to the memory foam upholstery, which was not used in your mattress.
In order to make a successful purchase, it’s imperative that you avoid any mattress upholstered with memory foam.
Memory foam is specifically designed to cause a mattress to need frequent replacing.
It wears quickly, sleeps hot, and off gasses the toxic chemicals from which memory foam is made…a health hazard to every living being in your home.
Also, there is no mattress made today that will be strong enough to support a heavy person and soft enough to comfort a person suffering with fibromyalgia.
Your purchase will need to include a mattress for support and a topper or toppers sufficient to ease your fibro pain.
This type of sleep system combination will prevent you from having to replace your mattress frequently….only replacing the topper(s) from time to time.
The best mattress to get for you is the Natura of Canada Greenspring Ultra Plush, which is not as soft as it sounds, due to the high quality of the components.
I have to change my mattress topper about once a year as I have Fibromyalgia.
I have pain in my back, shoulders, knees, hips, neck, buttocks.
I have purchased many Latex Mattress Toppers from Pure Latex Bliss.
Last year I had a particularly bad experience with Pure Bliss.
My 3” soft topper which I ordered was replaced by a 2” soft topper.
They paid return shipping and I could use the same box.
Again, the 3” soft topper was ordered, but a 3” firm topper was received.
They paid shipping again, but I had to pay $38 for a box, as the old one could not be used again.
They never explained or apologized.
The third topper was the correct one.
As I am finding it hard to trust this company, I am writing to enquire if you know of a 3” soft topper that is equal to or better than my current one. Have you had any negative reports about this company lately?
Thank you for anything that you can do for me.
Pure Bliss was hit hard by the pandemic.
They lost a lot of good people and closed 2 of their 3 plants.
Lots of mistakes were made by inexperienced workers.
They stopped taking orders for latex toppers in January.
The Pure Bliss latex was blended, 30% natural and 70% synthetic.
The latex topper I can offer you is pure, 100% all natural latex…no synthetics and no fillers.
The Suite Sleep Pure Vita Talalay Latex Topper only comes 3” and is softer than Pure Bliss’ Soft.
