We are looking for a king sized mattress to replace a memory foam one we absolutely hate.
After reading tons of your replies, we’re leaning towards a luxury firm type mattress to try to get the best of all worlds.
One that seems to fit what we’re looking for is the Simmons Beautyrest World Class Teagan Luxury Firm Pillow Top.
Choosing a mattress brand is hard enough, we don’t care what brand name or fancy model name – just want a good quality mattress.
Wife is 130lbs, I am 160. We rarely sleep together as we work alternating shifts where both of us are on our feet a lot (she’s a nurse, I’m a policeman).
Trying to keep it soft enough to be comfortable but firm enough to last us a few years within a budget of $2500….mattress only, as we already have a good foundation.
Thanks for taking the time to point me in the right direction, your blog has been very helpful.
I started out looking at the fluffiest pillowtops we could find because they were so soft for the 10 minutes in a mattress store – now I know better.
You’re on the right track…the right mattress…the wrong top.
The Simmons Beautyrest World Class Teagan is Macy’s name for our World Class Santorini…which is one we often recommend….providing firm contouring support for your spine.
However, we never recommend a pillowtop. Pillowtops are filled with memory foam and poly foam, which loses it’s initial comfort rather quickly…within months of delivery.
When we recommend this mattress, we also recommend a 2″ soft Talalay Latex topper to go with it. The latex provides extraordinary comfort that remains like new for many years.
Here are the links to those products, with free delivery and no sales tax…well within your budget.

Latex Mattress Topper
As an alternate recommendation, we also carry the Natura Greenspring line, which uses the same coil system as the Simmons World Class, and is already upholstered with latex, so a separate latex topper would not be needed. The “plush” model is the one I would recommend to you, to achieve the feel you have in mind.
This also comes with free delivery and no sales tax.
Here is the link to that line.
