Hi Pete, I am 36 years old and suffer from a herniated disk sitting on my sciatica nerve (L-5 on S-1). I am 5′-4″ @ 130 lbs. My husband is 6′-8″ @ 290lbs. We have a 10 year old Sealy Posturpedic Crown Jewel mattress that is sagging, and need to buy a new one. I don’t know where to begin! Firm, latex topper???? And, do we need to buy a new box spring, or re-use this with a new mattress? Please help! 🙂 Thank you, Shannon
You will need a firm, strong mattress to support a man that size. Adding a latex topper will provide comfort to such a mattress, without sacrificing the support it provides.
Here are links to the mattress I like best for him…the Wolf Two-Sided Tulah in Luxury Firm.And to the topper… An Ever-Eden 3″ soft Vytex Dunlop Latex topper will do the best job, at his size.
And, yes…you have to replace the boxspring too. Putting a new mattress on a 10 year old boxspring will cause premature wear to the new mattress and void the warranty.
From The Wolf Company we have to offer two-sided, flippable mattressess…at a more reasonable price.
