My husband and I are in search of a new mattress. My problem is I wake very easily at the slightest motion and his issue is back pain after laying in bed for 4-5 hours. We currently have a brand new mattress with individually wrapped pocketed coils and latex foam on top. It’s a really nice mattress and we have a 1 yr guarantee on it so we can return it but have no idea what to get in it’s place.
Heights and weights are 5’7″ and 135lb and 5’7″ and 165lb
Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!
Motion travels through both, the mattress and boxspring. When you have a king size, there are two boxsprings and this eliminates that which would normally transfer through the boxspring.
Also, in a king size, the motion transferring through the mattress has further to go to get to the other side…so you feel it less as its strength reduces over the greater expanse.
The two types of mattresses that do the best job of minimizing motion transfer are, foam and the Simmons Beautyrest.
The Beautyrest uses an individually pocketed coil unit. The coils move independently from one another. In this, the Beautyrest is unique.
Other brands that use an individually pocketed coil unit do not have coils that move independently. Their pockets are sealed at the top and bottom. When one coil goes down, the ones around it do also.
The Simmons Beautyrest pockets are sealed in the center. It’s the only one where the coils actually move independently.
Simmons has always been the one to go to for people who are easily disturbed by the partner’s movement.
Latex toppers are identified by the hundreds of small holes that permeate the foam.
There are many who buy other types of foam toppers, thinking they were buying latex.
Another option is two twin-xl sets side by side, which equals a king. This will virtually eliminate any motion transfer.
My wife and I have a king size Beautyrest with a latex topper. We don’t feel each other move at all.
Based on your sizes, my recommendation would be for a Simmons Beautyrest World Class Annapolis Place in luxury firm and a 2″ soft Talalay Latex topper.
