As a 40-year chiropractor and connoisseur of good sleep practices, I have SO enjoyed and agreed with your writings on your website!
I am shopping for 2 mattresses.
The first is for my futon bed frame in Honolulu.
The 8” cotton/wool Cannon Sleep Products futon mattress is still in very good condition after 15 years.
I topped it with a Woolrest wool fleece which I bought in New Zealand 35 years ago.
So, I know that good quality lasts.
In the last year it has begun to feel too hard.
I am sore all over in the morning. (I am 73 and still active with house repair, yard work, and water sports, primarily kayaking). A recent fall coupled with overwork in building a shed has both low back and bilateral shoulder capsules in constant pain - it wakes me several times per night and often a hand is numb.
What do you recommend ?
I have a nice cherry queen size slatted futon frame, which I want to continue using.
The second one is for a vacation cottage on an island in Puget Sound.
There I have a wood slat base futon frame, also queen, with a too-soft mattress.
I will replace it when I return there in May.
I sleep in an attic space which is accessed through a 56” x 32” hatch via ship’s ladder.
With these limitations, I cannot get a standard queen mattress into the space.
How about a Wolf Corp mattress in their shipping box?
What are the dimensions of the queen shipping box?
Which of their hybrid mattresses on your website would you recommend for me?
I am 6’, 180 lbs.
The Wolf mattress sounds ideal for your situation.
The box is small enough to get through your hatchway.
The Pocketed Coil/Latex Hybrid Adara model strikes me as the best choice for you.
It’s plush, but not too so...more like what you’ve been used to, but more comfortable.
The pocketed coils are double tempered for durability.
The independent movement of the coils contour to the shape of the body, maintaining the natural alignment of the spine, which will relieve back pain.
