Buying a new S&F mattress after 20 years.

Dear Pete,

Help! I am a stearns and foster mattress lover and I would like to purchase a new one after 20 plus years….
I am a cosmetic dentist who would like a recommendation of which stearns and foster mattress would be best for me…I am 55 years old, sleep on my stomach and side but I have lower back pain and now wake up with numbness in my shoulders and hands
In addition, I still suffer with hot flashes and allergies. I am 5′ about 95 lbs…and my boyfriend is 5’9″ and about 245 lbs so we need something that will work for us ….could you please be so kind as to let me know what you recommend….Thank you so much for your time!

Hi Debbie,
My biggest concern is your disappointment, given your level of expectation…which you have from your current experience.
All mattresses have suffered a dramatic decline in quality when comparing today’s mattresses to those made 20 years ago. At 95 pounds, you wouldn’t perceive much difference. But you’re sure to wonder what happened to your 245 pound boyfriend’s half of the bed.
Today’s mattresses are one sided, not flippable…half the mattress you have.
The materials inside have changed, too…designed to fail much sooner…in an effort to turn everyone into a more frequent buyer. Last year, Sealy/S&F was purchased by Tempurpedic. There is a lot of memory foam in this year’s line of S&F mattresses. They are no longer recommended for that reason.
There are two ways around this. The most common and most popular, is to get a good quality, more basic firm mattress, and add a 2″ layer of soft latex to the top. The latex does too things. Besides providing an amazingly comfortable sleeping surface, to will also extend the life of whatever mattress you place under it. Latex is the most resilient material available. It will absorb most of his body weight, which leaves much less work for the mattress.
The other option is a two sided mattress, which are constructed more like the S&F mattress you have now.
Our two sided mattresses are very high quality. They’ve been out for 5 years now and they have been problem free.
Here are links to the two sided model that will work best for you, and to the Simmons Beautyrest World Class Annapolis Place luxury firm mattress/2″ soft Talalay latex foam topper combo that will work for you. It too, has been problem free over the years that they have been in vogue.
