Stearns & Foster luxury plush mattress alternatives.

Danielle writes:

Yesterday, my husband and I were shopping for mattresses. I am 5’9″ and 170 lbs, and my husband is 6′ and 150. We prefer a plush mattress as opposed to a firmer one. I have Rheumatiod Arthritis – so I do have joint pain. We liked a Stearns & Foster luxury plush mattress. The Salesperson was saying this mattress would be good with both of our body types. After reading your informative blog, I’m thinking this mattress has the memory foam and we should opt for the latex instead? Do you have any other suggestions for mattresses? Also do you think a plush mattress would be ok for both of us (I would love to get the longest life of the mattress, of course)

Thanks, Danielle


Hi Danielle, 

You’re right about it having memory foam. Tempurpedic bought Sealy/S&F last year. When the new line was introduced, they put memory foam in every model. Memory foam is very comfortable, initially, and does a good job of making the sale. It isn’t worth bubcus beyond that. Memory foam is temperature sensitive and sinks once it warms from your body heat. It will reflect that heat back to you, causing you to sleep hot. And while it feels good on your RA when new, it’ll only take months before the pain will return. Memory foam is made of a chemical soup that off gasses the toxic chemicals from which it’s made. And while every salesman in the world, (or so it seems), will swear to you how great it is, I’m here to tell you that it is thee worst material ever invented for use in or as a mattress.

Since the 1920s, all-natural, chemical free latex foam has been the best you can buy…lasting for decades. For comforting you RA today and decades from now, latex is your very best value. You can either opt for an innerspring mattress with a latex topper, or an all latex mattress. The former will fall in the “affordable” range for most people. An all latex mattress is more expensive.

We carry a nice line of mattresses that have no memory foam and are reasonably priced. Add to any of them, a 2″ soft Talalay Latex foam mattress topper. Here are links to those mattresses, to the latex toppers and to an all latex line, pure LatexBLISS. Delivery is free and there’s no sales tax.
