Hi Peter, I live in NC and currently have a 2006 Kingdown Promo Plush FBS Queen.
It was heaven for the first 5 years and I probably should have replaced it years ago, but I always heard mattresses should last 10 years so...well, I just haven't.
I am 5'9" and 180 pounds, and have been having lower back issues for awhile and upper back/neck issues recently.
I prefer to sleep on my back but also sleep on my side some.
Your recommendation is appreciated, Cobey
I have a couple of recommendations for you.
The Simmons Beautyrest World Class Santorini in luxury firm...and an all natural Ever-Eden 2" Soft Talalay Latex topper.
The latex is the key, as it is, by far, better than the foams used in the mattress.
Here are those two links for you to view.
Simmons Beautyrest Recharge World Class Santorini
Latex Mattress Topper
And while this combination has worked well over the last decade...and with zero complaints, I might add, we have found a better value.
From "Natura", a Canadian company, their Greenspring line uses the same coil system, but already upholstered with the same all natural Talalay Latex as the topper.
This eliminates the need for a separate topper purchase.
Of the 5 choices of comfort, I recommend the Liberty in Plush.
Here is a link to that line for you to view.
Natura Greenspring Liberty Plush Mattress
These mattresses have a higher coil count than the World Class.
The coils are twice tempered, while the Beautyrest coils are not tempered.
They contain no memory foam.
In short, they are better made and cost less.
Either way, delivery is free and there's no sales tax.
An Important Note:
Any kind of moisture, be it from spills, accidents or perspiration causes a mattress to wear prematurely.
Protect your investment with high quality, Waterproof Mattress and Pillow Protectors that sleep cool and won't shrink.
