Hi Peter. 

I've gone through too much pain in recent years from lupus / fibro / degenerative disc disease and now am waking with hip and occasional shoulder pain. I have a very firm 2 sided sealy excellent condition mattress with a 3 inch Talalay mattress topper you recommended last year. It has helped but not enough now. I cannot stand anything you sink into at all an love the feel of latex.I was looking at your mattresses and wondered if you would advise a firm full latex mattress? I don't know if you sink into a firm one.I am 5'7 240 and my husband 6' 300. I don't know if the very firm mattress is what is now causing pressure points under the latex topper? Please advise with all acceptable recommendations. Thank you very much for time! Cindy


Hi Cindy,

It would be the extra firm mattress causing the pain, but it is a good choice for supporting your combined weights.

You have a couple of options. 

If the mattress isn't already too high, add a Dunlop or medium Talalay topper to the mix.

You would put it under the soft topper you already have. I would suggest 2" of soft Talalay Latex foam..

Another option is a latex mattress….6", 8" or 9"

The 6" is a solid Dunlop core, which should be all you'll need. 

The 8" models are that 6" core with 2" of Talalay in your choice of soft, medium or firm.

The 9" model with 3" of soft Talalay latex is reported by my customers to be the most comfortable.

But given that you already have the 3" soft topper, the 6" core is all you need.

Here are links to the latex mattresses and latex toppers.
