Best mattress for a large man, Simmons Black, Therapedic two-sided.

Hi Pete,

I need a new mattress for a queen size bed. I am 5'4 125 lbs my husband is 6.3' 250 lbs.

I have a lower back bulging disc that with pain going down the leg, and  my posture is not straight sometimes.

I am a stomach sleeper, which I try to avoid since it is not good for  the back. My husband prefers a medium firm mattress, no major problems with his back.

What type of mattress do you recommend?

Thank you, Linda

Hi Stella,

Something on the firmer side will allow you to sleep on your stomach. It will also help with the Sciatica you have. 
The discs in your lower back are worn and the vertebrae are pinching the nerve, which is sending that pain around your hip and down your leg. (Sciatica)
Keeping your spine in its proper alignment will help alleviate that. Soft mattresses allow you to sink too far…throwing off that alignment.
Given your size, you will also need some cushioning to reduce the pressure on your joints and muscles.
There are a couple of ways to go on this. Both choices will work well for the two of you.
The Simmons Beautyrest Black Ansleigh in plush/firm is one of the best one sided mattresses on the market, providing a nice combination of firm support with a comfortable sleeping surface. Here are links to all of those products.
