I am looking for a queen-size mattress to use with a platform bed. Currently, I have a Serta pillow-top ultra plush mattress that replaced an 18-year old Sealy Posturepedic.
Yes, I fell for the luxury sales pitch for my joint and arthritis issues. The mattress is only a few years old and too tall (20 inches) for the platform.
While the mattress feels great when you lay down, it has never been the perfect fit for me. The pillow top is memory foam which I sink into.
I have been alternating sides to sleep, but even after just a few years, it is easy to see it will not hold up the way my Sealy Posturepedic did.
After reading several of your posts, a latex mattress seems the way to go but I am lost as to which one would accommodate my health concerns (hip, knee, and pelvic joint issues).
Also, how long is transit to ship to Kentucky?
While you couldn’t have made to much worse of a choice, you can take comfort in the fact that there are few good choices available today.
Even the Sealy Posturepedics are but a shadow of their former glory…a far cry from what they produced 18 years ago.
Latex, on the other hand, continues to be the best type of mattress on the market…as it has been since the 1920s.
Latex’s more recent popularity is due to all the lousy beds there are to choose from.
18 years ago, spending the extra for a latex mattress didn’t make a lot of sense, since you could buy a perfectly good, long lasting mattress for just a few hundred dollars.
Now, it’s common to spend thousands of dollars and wind up with the same terrible results you got from your Serta.
Latex has an incredible feel…very supportive, the best for pressure point relief, improved blood flow, and comfort beyond anything else.
We carry five lines of latex beds.
The “name brand” among latex mattresses, is PureTalalayBliss. They are they premier maker of Talalay latex mattresses in the world, and have been since the Talalay process was developed in the 1940s.
Of the models in the PureBliss line, the “Beautiful” model is the most comfortable.
We also carry the EverEden latex models. These, too, are very high quality, cost less.
For maximum comfort, opt for the 9″ in Soft…very comfy. I find these to be an excellent value…so much so, that we have the 8″ model at home.Shown Here:
And, we have the Natura latex mattress, which tend to be a little firmer than I think you’ll like.
Palmpring is another brand that is completely organic, using latex and coconut fiber. Again, these would be firmer than you like.
And lastly, Suite Sleep makes an organic latex mattress that is targeted for kid’s beds.
Either of the first two will suit you.
The Pure Talalay Bliss comes with White Glove delivery.
The Ever-Eden ships UPS…which is part of the reason why it doesn’t cost as much.
