Pete, please save our marriage!
We purchased a king Sleep Number Bed a couple of years ago.
I have been waking up with difficulty breathing because the back pain caused by it is excruciating and I can barely walk on my days off at home.
Four nights a week I sleep in hotels-- just fine! I was able to find out that they are Simmons Beautyrest mattresses.
We are in desperate need of a king bed to accommodate a 5.5 inch 105 lb female and a 5'8 inch 220 lb male.
I think I have finally convinced DH to cut our losses and junk the Sleep Number bed without trying to replace parts.
The Sleep Number operated like twins pushed together, but we would like to try sleeping in the middle minus a big crack, (valley).
We are in our 30's too young to be separated by a crack!
Thank you in advance for your expert advice. Michele
DH? Designated Husband?...I hope.
The Beautyrest uses a pocketed coil system, where each coil moves independently from the next...creating an independent suspension type of support.
This contouring support gives with you and maintains the natural alignment of your spine...which is why you sleep so well.
Your Sleep Number bed is an air mattress that provides zero psuh back against your spine, relying on displacement, like a water bed. This type of support is terrible.
At your size, any Beautyrest will work as well, but for your DH's size, you're going to need a Beautyrest Black, using a triple strand Cable Coil, which will provide the strength needed for his size.
The model to get is the Ava in Luxury Firm. It provides firm support, which will wear well under an large man.
You will add to that, an Ever Eden all natural Talalay Latex Mattress Topper...2" Soft.
This cushioning is 100% natural Talalay Latex. Latex is extremely comfortable and equally long lasting...unlike that used in most mattresses.
Here are the links the the Simmons Beautyrest Black Ava in luxury firm, and the 2" Soft Latex Topper.
Together, the make for an excellent sleep system that will be supportive and comfortable for many years.
