I am a 72 year old very active now single woman starting out to buy a new mattress after years of NOT having to buy mattresses for guests or children, much less myself. I am a VERY restless sleeper, have all the many pains that older athletes have, and although 5’5″ I weigh only about 106 lbs. I need both a mattress AND a boxspring and am hoping to keep such a purchase under $1000 dollars but worry that it might not be possible.
Fortunately, your size will allow you to stay within your budget.
I have a couple of options for you.
The independent movement of the individually pocketed coil units provide contouring support, which maintains the natural alignment of your spine.
They, also, relieve pressure points. By all accounts, the most comfortable type of support.
The first option is one that we’ve recommended for years and with great success.
It’s a Simmons Beautyrest Flatbrook mattress in luxury firm with a 2″ soft Talalay latex mattress topper for extraordinary surface comfort.
This comes with free delivery, set-up and removal of the old mattress.
If you are alone and with no one to help you, this would be your best option.
Simmons also makes these mattresses in plush, but they do not hold up well at all. The gauge of the wire is very thin and the steel is not tempered and the mattresses are topped with poly and memory foams, which also, do not hold up….one of the main reasons for the latex topper. Besides being the most comfortable, latex is also the most resilient upholstery material available.
And, it’s all natural. For relief of pressure point pain and muscle relaxation, there is nothing else that comes close to latex foam…not for the last 100 years.
Option #2 would require someone on your end to help you, as it is delivered via UPS.
It is also an individually pocketed coil unit, with a thinner gauge wire than the luxury firm Beautyrest coils. The difference is that the steel is double tempered and the upholstery in the mattress is soft latex. An additional latex topper is not necessary.
The mattress is made by a very old, (1876), family run company in the Midwest. The quality is very high and the value is, as well. The model name is “Adara“
It is, both supportive and extremely comfortable.
Here are links to each of these options. Besides the delivery being free, there is no sales tax.
