My wife and I bought a super comfortable Simmons BeautyRest World Class mattress with the pillow top.
That was about 16 years ago. It's now time to replace it. The pillow top has sagged in the last 6-7 years.
We both are side sleepers but she will occasionally lie on her back.
We are not impressed by the memory foam mattresses.
We are considering one of the Natura of Canada Greenspring mattresses.
We are both 6’ tall. I weigh about 250 lbs., and she is about 165 lbs.
What is your recommendation and pricing for the appropriate king size mattress?
I have very good low profile boxes and would hate to replace them.
Thank you, Paul
If those box springs are, also, 16 years old, you’ll risk much to save little.
The price of the set isn’t much more than the price of the mattress alone.
Any mattress you put on those old box springs, will have its warranty immediately voided. And, the mattress will conform to the weak spots in the box springs.
The Natura of Canada Greenspring mattresses use the same type of coil system, as is in your Beautyrest. The coil count is a little higher, but the coils are much stronger, made of double tempered steel.
Simmons does not temper the steel they use...never have.
What’s more, the Natural Talalay Latex is more resilient than the poly foam used in your mattress...which may have a little latex in it....depending on the model.
That information can be found on the white ‘law’ label at the head of your mattress.
And so, all of the Greenspring mattresses are firmer than they sound.
The Ultra Plush model is the most comfortable of the 4...and it’s the one we sleep on at home.
We are, each, over 200 lbs and our mattress remains in like new condition, despite being almost 6 years old.
It’s a very high quality mattress.
Here is a link to that line of mattresses. Scroll down to find the Ultra Plush.
You seem to like the Wolf Tulah Hybrid Plush Eurotop Mattress. I have a box spring. It’s about 25 yrs. old. I try to stay on my back, but tend to lean to the left as I sleep.
I’m 5’6 & 128 lbs.. I have left side of neck & shoulder issues...maybe, from leaning this direction. Can you help me find this or give me more info? Thank You, Sandra
You're just the right size for the Wolf Tulah. It's all the mattress you need.
But first, your box spring must be replaced.
I can only imagine that much of your discomfort stems from the worn out support your mattress is getting.
If your mattress is that old, as well, then there's no question as to why you're suffering.
The Wolf Tulah offer excellent support and comfort.
But it doesn't have a matching box spring and that needs to be addressed.
If you have a bed, (headboard, or headboard and footboard), that you want to keep, I suggest getting a new box spring from Costco, Sam's Club or Big Lots. They are very strong and very reasonably priced.
If you don't have a bed, or one that you care about, the Wolf Basic Black Platform Bed is a good choice.
