All Latex Foam Mattress or Simmons Beautyrest Black Alexia & Latex Foam Topper.

Alex Writes:

I've always thought that I needed a firm-very firm mattress as I've had lower back issues since high school (when I was much lighter - 6'2", 175 lbs, now 250 lbs.). However, I recently had to use an air mattress with a frame for an extended period of time. The mattress has a slow leak so that in the morning, I wake up on a half deflated mattress. Though i have trouble, rolling out of this contraption, I have been sleeping very well with no pain (leading me to believe that my earlier back issues were all self inflicted sports injuries that were made worse by overly firm mattresses).
My first question is your thoughts on what mattress, topper combination would work best for my size given that my plan would be to have a mattress, topper and feather bed combination on a platform. My initial thoughts were for a firmer mattress so that the overall feel would not be too soft. Your posts have suggested similar thinking - to soften the sleeping experience with a topper, but I wasn't sure if the platform would cause me to need a softer mattress than usual.
My second question is what would be the differences and pros and cons on a setup such as the Beautyrest Alexia with a topper versus a latex mattress such as the Edenrest in 9" (and I'm assuming a topper is not needed for a latex mattress).
I appreciate your feedback as I really need to order a new bed before the air mattress completely deflates.
Thanks, Alex
Hi Alex,
Your experience with the air mattress indicates that contouring support works better for you.
Both, the Simmons Beautyrest and an all latex mattress provide that.
If going with the EverEden 9" latex mattress, you would not need an additional latex topper.
If going with the Alexia, you'll add a 2" soft Talalay latex topper to it.
Both are good options for you.
Matching foundations for these are quite firm, with virtually no give...very much like a platform bed. You should not need to compensate further for using a platform.
