Simmons Beautyrest Alexia extra firm mattress and a latex topper for large people.

Krys writes:

Hi Pete,
I weigh 325 and my fiancé is 200. I read another review you wrote suggesting the Simmons Beautyrest Alexia extra firm mattress and a latex topper. 

The only problem I have is I live in a converted attic that has a somewhat narrow spiral staircase. 

How will the mattress arrive and what are the dimensions. 

I desperately need a new bed…I feel like I’m sleeping on springs and I am so uncomfortable. I hope you can help!

Thanks, Krys

Hi Krys,
Your biggest challenge is getting it to the bedroom.
I’m afraid that your best option is getting 2 Twin-Xl sets and putting them sided by side to make a king size.
The individually pocketed coils of the Simmons Beautyrest are made more for comfort than durability.
The Black Alexia is a good start for 250 + crowd, but I worry that it won’t be strong enough for you.
We carry a line of two sided mattresses that are very strong. Add a latex topper to those and you’ll have support and comfort that should last you for many years.
These mattresses come firm, luxury firm and plush…and each is the same thickness as the others.
These are made by Wolf…a very old family owned and operated manufacturer if the Midwest.
I would suggest the Tulah firm for you and the Brooklyn plush for your wife, so that it will give a little better at her hip.
Add to that, a 2″ soft Vytex Dunlop latex topper for your side and a 2″ soft Talalay Latex topper for her side….both made by Ever-Eden
The unique FedEx delivery will also make it easy for you to get all this up that spiral staircase.
Delivery is free and there’s no sales tax.
Here are the links to those products.

Hi Again,

The wolf bed in the box we can get up the stairs and I am the misses at the 350 mark ;). 

We can only fit a queen due to the apartment being an efficiency. 

With that said should it be the Tulah Wolf and Dunlop or Talalay topper?

Thanks, Krys

Hi Krys,
The queen is packed the same way and will get up the stairs.
Given this, I would suggest a compromise…the Tulah in luxury firm & the 3″ soft Vytex Dunlop Topper.
The extra latex will absorb more of your body weight and will also be more comfortable for the misses.
if you need a foundation for that mattress, this “easy Fit model assembles easily…only 6 bolts.
