The Natura GreenSpring series combines the natural elements commonly found in Natura, such as wool and latex, but it has a specially designed pocketed coil system to provide your body with extra support.
We sleep on the Ultra Plush model, at home, which is the most comfortable of the 4 models.
Ours is nearly 5 years old, and still in like new condition....with each of us weighing over 200 lbs.
And despite my weight and having several disc related back problems, I sleep and wake with no back pain.
You can order your new mattress, online.
We recommend using a waterproof mattress protector with every mattress.
Keeping the upholstery materials clean and dry will extend the life of the mattress.
I ran across your blog and read some of the articles. A few things i really had not thought about.
> 1. Buying a mattress used in a hotel chain.
Specifically, that the mattress was designed for part time use and not daily use.
> 2. Body perspiration decreases life of mattress
> 3. Materials used.
With that said, we bought a Westin Heavenly bed some years ago after staying in a Westin Hotel.
We still love the mattress but it is now past its time and has indentations in it (an has for years).
In the last year, or so, we loved the bedding at the Even and Holiday Inn Hotels as well as the Kimpton’s all IHG hotels. When I asked hotel staff at the Even about the mattress, I was told the Simmons Beautyrest Pillow Top.
Since I was not given the exact details and I know their mattresses are custom made for them, which one?
Now the Kimpton does sell their mattresses on line to consumers.
We loved the comfort and cool feel of both Even and Kimpton mattresses.
But from reading your articles we are hesitate to purchase, fearing we will regret it in a short time.
And that we will be buying another mattress in short order.
Based on the information provided, what would you recommend.
Not sure if this helps, but my wife and I both sleep on our sides.
There's a couple of way to go about this.
Simmons Beautyrests, made for hotels, have no memory foam in them.
Simmons Beautyrests made for retail, are almost all memory foam.
To buy just a mattress, you're better off getting it from a hotel.
However, buying from a hotel gets you a low end, Silver Series Beautyrest, for which you will pay a premium price.
My suggestion is to get a Platinum Series Beautyrest in Luxury Firm and adding a 2" or 3" Plush Latex Topper to it.
The Platinum Series has a lot more coils and you can overcome the negative effects of the memory foam with the latex topper.
The latex topper will provide an extraordinarily comfortable sleeping surface and prevent the premature wear of the mattress, caused by the memory foam. In short, it will last a whole lot longer than the manufacturer intended.
Here are links to the Simmons Beautyrest Platinum mattresses and Pure Bliss Latex Toppers.
I wanted to ask for your help selecting a new mattress system for my wife and me.
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
Hi 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.
