Fibromyalgia, A Soft Latex Topper for a 15 year old Stearns & Foster two sided mattress.

Lori writes:

Hi Pete

I am looking to possibly replace our 15 year old Stearns & Foster two sided mattress (still providing good support – no pillowtop). I have debilitating chronic pain (fibromyalgia) and have used a 100% wool “Cuddle Ewe” topper for the past 4 years and it has recently become uncomfortable and flat. The company said it only lasts up to five years.
I am now looking at purchasing a Stearns & Foster whole core latex bed (name is “Italian” something) or one of the Simmons Beautyrest individual coil mattesses with a thick latex top. After much consideration and review of your blog, I’m wondering if my 9 year old mattress is worth saving if I were to purchase a good quality latex mattress topper. I am very interested in your opinion keeping in mind I am a side sleeper (turn over several times a night), weigh 152 lbs 5’6″; my husband weighs 192 lbs 5″9″. We will need something durable as I spend more than the average amount of time in bed both lying down and sitting up.
Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Regards, Lori 

Hi Lori,
Take into consideration that mattresses today are not made as well as the one you have.

If you buy one of today’s one-sided mattresses that is soft enough to address your fibro, it won’t keep its shape very long…and you’ll be worse off than you are now.
In order to get around the reduced quality issue, you’ll need a firmer mattress with a soft latex topper to do the job and to do it long term.
Logic dictates that you get the topper first and try it on the mattress you have. You may not need to buy a new mattress, just yet.
The mattress you have was extremely well made…better than any innerspring mattress on today’s market.
Unlike any other material, latex remains like new a very long time, while providing extraordinary comfort…comfort that exceeds anything else you can use.
Here is the link to the latex toppers. I would suggest the Soft Talalay. If your fibro is advanced, go with the 3″.
