It's time for me to move again and I was hoping to ask your advice!
I still have the Natura All Latex mattress that I got from you back in 2015, and I've been very happy with it. Though lately I have been developing some hip pain and wondering if that might be related to the mattress getting older?
My only other issue has been the fact that the mattress is so heavy.
I live alone and I don't have a lot of upper body strength, so I find it very difficult to move, even just to lift it up the corner a bit when changing the sheets.
Do you think I should get a new mattress instead of bringing this one with me when I move?
And if so, what would you recommend?
Thank so much for all your help over the years!
7 years is relatively new for an all latex mattress of that quality.
The hip pain needs to be diagnosed by a doctor....to be sure if it's the mattress or not.
However, not wanting to take the mattress with you because of the weight is a purely personal choice.
For something similar in support and comfort, but not nearly as heavy, would be a poly/latex hybrid…using a firm polyurethane foam core with a soft latex top layer.
After lots of thought following our phone conversation, I've decided to try a Suite Sleep latex mattress topper on the too firm Simmons Beautyrest that I already have in the guest room.
You may recall that I'm 5'2", 125/130 and primarily a back sleeper with rheumatoid arthritis.
Attempts to sleep on this mattress leave me with sore hips and shoulders even with two egg crate foam pads totaling 3". (I can squeeze them together and feel my fingers touching so they're not very dense.)
Which Latex topper do you think would work best for me? Which thickness and firmness?
I suggest the Suite Sleep All Natural 3" Soft Vita Talalay Latex Topper.
For petite female, the 3" Soft Vita Talalay Latex works best.
If you have a larger person sleeping with you, then go with the 2".
Latex is far more resilient than any other type of upholstery material.
Hi Pete, I bought a Saatva luxury firm mattress and it is way too firm. I have arthritis in my hip and need support and am a side sleeper. Which mattress topper should I use to soften it?? Thanks, Cynthia...
