We are shopping for a new mattress with NO MEMORY FOAM.
I am 5’5” and weigh about 110 pounds and George is about 5’10” and weights about 200 pounds. George does have back pain often, especially in his lower back. He also gets shoulder pain at times. I don’t really have much pain, but at times, sleeping on certain beds, hurts my shoulders. We both tend to sleep on our sides, and sometimes on our backs. I’d say we both like a bed that’s firm, but has a softness to it, if that makes sense. I tend to like softer beds than George does, but not too soft. The hard temperpedic he has is just too hard. We are thinking of using it (with a soft latex topper) for his 16 year old daughter, unless you know of a way to trade it in or something….it’s only 3 years old.
Thanks in advance for all of your help with this!!
Tempurpedic is thee most heavily advertised mattress, which is why it sells so well…not to mention the salespeople pushing it.
It is, in fact, thee worst type of mattress on the market. It’s made of a toxic chemical soup and it performs poorly…adding insult to injury.
And even though I have it available to sell, I will not.
That said, there are a number of good choices.
Last January, we were introduced to a very old family run manufacturer in the midwest.
The quality is high and the prices are very reasonable.
Their “Adrian” model uses a firm strong coil unit that is suitable for a man your husband’s size. It is topped with soft latex and provides exactly what you need…firm support and a soft comfortable sleeping surface that won’t wear out the way poly and memory foam do. Latex has been the best upholstery material on the planet for nearly 100 years.
There’s nothing new about the coil unit of this mattress, which is the same age as latex. This coil unit was the work horse of the industry, from the 1920s.
When you hear older people talking about how mattresses lasted 20 years or so, it was this coil unit inside those mattresses.
Together, they are the best products available. The reasonable price comes, in part, because they are delivered UPS.
The brand is the Wolf Mattress Company. Here is the link to that mattress. Delivery is free and there’s no sales tax.
