A Mattress for large people with scoliosis.

Arturo writes:

I have just returned to latex mattress by king coil, deep impressions in the first 2 days…but not before it destroyed my back. I have very bad Scoliosis, with an upper+lower curve. I am looking at Stearns & Foster latex mattress, I’m not sure the name, it’s a bit firmer, I’m too scared to get a soft feeling mattress cause it may fail again (body impressions + hammocking) yet I need some give for hips and shoulders. Any suggestions. I’m desperate and in so much pain from my last mistake. Will the Stearns & Foster cave in? The industry standard of 1+1/2 inch depression in a mattress is not ok with me. My wife an I are of average height and well above average weight. What do you suggest? Arturo 

Hi Arturo,

I believe you’re barking up the wrong tree, altogether. An all foam mattress, even an all latex mattress…which the S&F is not…is not what I would suggest for someone with scoliosis.

There is simply too much play in an all foam mattress to support a spine with scoliosis, as it should be supported. A layer of soft Talalay Latex should be used at the surface, which will provide you pressure point relief and muscle relaxation. But, the mattress under it must be firmer with coils that push back against your spine. And, it must be strong to hold your weights.


I have an extremely well made two-sided flippable mattress. It’s this mattress, the Cameo firm, that I would recommend to support your scoliosis.  Here is the link to that mattress.

The topper recommendation is also weight sensitive. For really heavy people we find that a combination of latex toppers works extremely well. Each topper will be 1.5″ thick. One will be a soft Talalay and the other will be Dunlop….one on top of the other. It’s a matter of personal comfort, as to which one goes on top. Here is the link to the latex toppers.
