My wife is 65, 2 hip replacements, fibromyalgia and all the pain that goes with it.
What is the absolute best mattress in the world for us?
Ours is a story you've heard many times so I'll make it brief.
We have tried everything, including tempurpedic, and nothing works.
We just got rid of another nightmare memory foam topper.
I am 70, in reasonably good shape, 6'2" and 210 pounds.
I'm fed up with too firm or too soft mattresses and combinations that are causing pain and sleep loss.
You haven't tried everything. You may have tried everything this industry is pushing.....promising you the moon in the process.
One of the major problems in this industry is in the over-selling of continually worsening quality.
When you no longer have anything decent to offer, you have to make what you do have sound better than it is. This BS has totally gotten out of hand.
And the buying public are making things worse by trying to buy "the best mattress in the world", or "the mattress of my dreams", or "wanting to sleep on a cloud", or, generally, just thinking of a mattress as if it were meant to be a luxury item.
What you need isn't anything different than the next guy...reasonably firm support with a sleeping surface that is comfortable enough to allow you to sleep deeply...providing a restful, recuperative night's sleep.
The major problem, today, is that finding a mattress like that is easy....while not being able to finding one that will do that for more than a year or two.
If you equate expense with quality, you're now wondering why expensive mattresses have so little longevity.
The prices you're being charged is not because the mattresses are expensively made.
They cost what they do because everybody making and selling them are making a killing.
Did you happen to notice how many mattress stores there are?
And, no matter where you live, you're being bombarded by mass media mattress marketing...TV, Radio, Newspaper...all very expensive.
I'll give you just one guess as to who ultimately pays for all that advertising.
Ok, enough of this tirade.
But, a lot of people will read this...many making the same mistakes you've made...making them over and over again...when all it takes to avoid getting snookered is a common sense perspective.
If you want to stop fooling around with all the hyped mattresses that are nothing but pure junk, and want to get into a high quality mattress that will provide excellent support, comfort and longevity, then you'll want to consider the mattress we use at home.
Natura of Canada Greenspring is the highest quality mattress we've found.
We are large people, about 225 lbs each, and I have lots of back problems.
I sleep without pain. And after 4 years of use, this mattress is still in like new condition.
That Mattress is The Natura of Canada Greenspring Ultra Plush.
