I have been looking to replace a Stearns and Foster Regency Pillowtop mattress purchased in 1990. It has worn out, and I have been experiencing back and hip pain during the night.
I have scoliosis and a spinal fusion with steel rods, so a good mattress is a must, but I don't like a rock-hard mattress. My husband can sleep on anything.
Would you recommend a S&F for me again?
I have been looking at the S&F latex models, but latex is new to me.
We need a queen size mattress.
Your situation requires firm support...firm support that remains firm.
And, as you mentioned, with some cushioning on top for surface comfort.
The rods in your back will not bode well on a mattress with contouring support...like you would get with an individually pocketed coil.
And certainly not any foam mattress...even though latex is the best and most resilient of all the foams.
Even there, not a S&F...using synthetic latex.
And now including memory foam, since Tempurpedic bought them in 2013.
Nothing S&F makes, today, is worth buying...for anyone...and especially not you.
I can understand your tendency to want to stay with that brand, considering how well you did the last time.
However, the mattress industry, as a whole, has changed dramatically since your last purchase. Few of today's mattresses will last as long as the one you have....S&F, especially, is a poor value now that they are owned by Tempurpedic and are using a lot of memory foam in every mattress they make. Your old S&F had no memory foam in it...and, was two sided.
Almost all of today's mattresses are one sided, unlike yours.
These two factors have worked together to make today's production line mattresses disposable...like so many other products we buy today.
This may be hard for you to believe, given what you're used to, but you are lucky to get 5 years from today's mattresses...and much too often, less than that...especially for people who start off with a sensitive back problem.
An all natural, all latex mattress will last a very long time. However, what S&F offers in the way of latex is a combination of synthetic latex and poly foam...nowhere near the same quality.
A moot point, as people with the severity of back problems, as you have, don't fare well on even the best of latex mattresses. They simply lack the stiffness necessary for proper support.
Your mattress was very hard. The hardness mitigated by the pillowtop. But, even the pillowtop part isn't made as well today as it was back then. Today, pillowtops are thicker and softer, using lower density poly and memory foams to create a "luxury" feel...something that sells well, but doesn't keep its shape worth a darn.
I suggest you stay with something similar to what you have.
The Tulah Firm Two Sided mattress will provide the same support you had been used to.
I recently went to a hotel and fell in love with the Simmons Beautyrest World Class Felicity II Super Pillow Top Plush.
After googling this mattress I came across an answer you gave, where you recommended a Beautyrest World Class Raleigh. I have learned that this line has been discontinued. I am presently sleeping in a 20 year old tube waterbed with mattress top.
I wake up with a backache every morning and blame it on my age (53), arthritis and slight scoliosis however I'm thinking it might be time for a new mattress.
While I like a firm mattress I loved the bed I slept in at the hotel. Since you are the expert, I would like to know which type mattress you would recommend for my husband and I. I am now leaning towards a Simmons but am not sure which type to get.
Thanks so much for your help. Cherie
Hi Cherie, That hotel mattress is engineered for comfort, but falls way short when it comes to durability. Any given hotel room isn't used every night. Even so, the hotel will only get 4 years out of a plush pillowtop Beautyrest.
In a master bedroom, you'd be lucky to get half that. The pillowtops wear out quickly and the coils in a plush Beautyrest are very thin. A human body requires firm support for the skeletal system...and a comfortable sleeping surface for relief of pressure points and blood flow and muscle relaxation, for a greater depth of sleep. You can get those things with the mattress you asked about...for about a year. If your budget allows for a new mattress every year, then go for it.
However, if you are like most of us, that kind of unnecessary expenditure is unacceptable. Start with a luxury firm Beautyrest and add 2" of soft Talalay latex topper for the feel you want that will last for many years.
Latex is extraordinarily comfortable and extremely resilient. So much so, that it will absorb much of your body weight and in so doing, extend the life of the mattress. In the long run, this combination sleep system is far less expensive than frequently replacing any of today's mattresses. Here are links to a Simmons Beautyrest World Class Santorini Luxury Firm mattress, and to the EverEden latex toppers. https://themattressexpert.com/our-brands/simmons/beautyrest-recharge-world-class/
Hi Pete, We are looking for a new mattress for our 15 year old son, who has scoliosis.
He is 6' 3", weighs about 150.
He has a 15% lumbar curve.
His old mattress is causing him pain.
I was wondering if you could recommend anything. Thanks so much! Jeanne
Hi Jeanne, Every scoliosis patient, I've come across, benefits from a firm to hard mattress. However, with your son being so slender, he is likely to find a mattress like that to be uncomfortable. We carry mattresses from Wolf, (a very old (1872) family owned and operated company.
They have some old fashioned two-sided models, which use the Bonnell coil unit...the large heavy coils used many years ago.
This coil unit is very firm and strong. The two-sided models are the Tulah in Firm, Luxury Firm, and the Brooklyn model in plush.
Being so tall and thin, I can't help but feel that the Brooklyn Plush will give him both, firm support and a comfortable sleeping surface.
To be on the safe side, you can go with one of the firmer Tulah models...which can always be softened if he finds them too firm.
Hello, I talked to you earlier today. You were torn between recommending the Natura plush or ultra plush.
I'm 5'7" 165, husband is 6'2" 220. I have scoliosis and joint pain. My husband likes a softer mattress he has sleep apnea and I think we both snore a little.
We both need relief on our pressure points. I am going to try a mattress topper with my Stearns and Foster coil mattress, you recommended the Talalay 2".
Can you tell me what the difference is between the soft Dunlop and the Talalay. They both have IDL ratings of 14-19. Would the Dunlop not relieve pressure?
Would Dunlop feel firm even though both have the same IDL? Also, I forgot to ask you if we like our topper and decide we would like to replace our Stearns and Foster mattress which mattress would you recommend that would work with the topper? Thank you! Jan
The Talalay process has a freezing step that the Dunlop process doesn't have. The particles are suspended in the Talalay and settle in the Dunlop.
The end result is a more supple feel for the Talalay and a more dense feel for the Dunlop.
For surface comfort and pressure point relief, the Soft Talalay is the best...2" is all you'll need.
