Thank you for all the information you provide.
I am trying to decide between the Plush tight top or Luxury Firm tight top Simmons Beautyrest.
I am a 110 lb.,side/stomach sleeper, and my husband is 6', 200lb. side/back sleeper.
We do not want any memory foam, if possible as we both sleep hot.
From my research it seems both these models have memory foam.
There doesn't seem to be any other models for us to try out, that doesn't have memory foam.
I understand, from reading your blogs, that a latex topper will keep us from sleeping hot.
Does that really work?!
You bet it works...works well and lasts a long time.
Latex is the only product that you can buy, that more than pays for itself...as it also extends the life of the mattress.
The latex topper insulates you from the memory foam in the mattress, and allows you to sleep cooler.
When choosing a Simmons Beautyrest, it's imperative that you DO NOT opt for a "plush" model.
It will lose its shape quickly under a large man, as the gauge of wire used to make the coils of their plush models, is much thinner than the gauge of wire used to make the coils in their firmer models.
Go for the luxury firm and add the latex topper.
What we recommend is the Simmons Beautyrest Platinum, Gibson Grove model in Luxury Firm.
Add to that, a Pure Bliss 2" Plush Natural Talalay Latex Topper.
Here are the links to those items.
Another option to consider is the Natura of Canada Greenspring line of mattresses...also using an individually pocketed coils unit, and using zero memory foam...using natural Talalay Latex instead, which eliminates the need for the topper.
I would suggest the "Ultra Plush" model for the feel you're after. It's the mattress we use, at home.
Here is the link to that line.
In either case, the mattress comes with white glove delivery, which includes removal of your old mattress.
Delivery is free and there's no sales tax.
