A year ago, I bought a Sealy Posturepedic West Salem Firm king firm mattress.
It was great for about 75 days, then began sagging and body contouring causing me hip and leg pain.
I weigh about 245, sleep on back, my wife is 130 side sleeper. We kept it for a year and took it back.
Next, we bought a Beauty-rest Silver BRS900 Extra Firm. It's probably a little to firm and not that comfy.
Although, it's not as bad as the Sealy. I feel it's probably heading down the path of body contouring in places.
We just got back from the in-laws and their 15 year old guest bed has more edge support and less sagging than on 3 month old bed. We only have a couple weeks to return within our sleep trial so need to get something ASAP
I have seen you post some about hybrid innerspring with latex and no memory foam from Wolf.
Do you think that is a good choice?
Is Wolf good for this or is there another brand?
What do you think?
The Wolf Pocketed Coil/Hybrids are an excellent choice.
The Adara is better for your size, but The Tulah is more comfortable...better suited to a female side sleeper.
I need a new mattress, but am not able to afford a good one.
When did mattresses get so expensive?
I read reviews online and they aren't good, many of them.
Can you recommend a good quality mattress that doesn't cost a lot of money?
It all started about 20 years ago, when Tempur-Pedic came into existence.
The spent a ton of money in advertising, and continue to do so. It's the consumer, who ends up paying for it.
Later, all of the once trusted name brands were purchased by other companies.
Tempur-Pedic bought Sealy and Stearns & Foster. An investment group bought Simmons and Serta.
Those name brands sold for a huge amount of money. The money spent to buy them needed to be recouped.
Again, it's the consumer who ended up footing the bill.
The reviews are so bad, due to the memory foam all of these brands are using.
They promote that junk as if it were the best thing since sliced bread.
But memory foam is purposefully designed to cause a mattress to need frequent replacing.
All that is part of the corporate greed that has gripped this industry.
However, the news isn't all bad.
There are lots of small mattress manufacturers across the country that don't spend a ton of money in advertising and offer mattresses with no memory foam in them.
One, in particular, is The Wolf Corporation....one that we carry and promote for their quality and value.
Wolf is the oldest mattress manufacturer in the country that has been continually owned and operated by the same family. The Wolf family established their mattress manufacturing facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana...in 1873.
From them, we have an old-fashioned two-sided mattress, upholstered in natural plant-based poly foam.
There is no memory foam in these mattresses, and no VOC off gassing, which is common with memory foam.
Here is a link to that mattress...available in a choice of comfort.
