Nice to see you back. I trust you had a good Christmas.
Much has changed over these past several years.
At the time you bought these, the mattress industry was already on a downward slide…especially among the name brands.
Memory foam, the thing chiefly responsible for the downturn in quality, is being used now more than ever before.
Chemical laden memory foam is thee worst upholstery material ever invented.
Conversely, all natural latex foam is and has been the best upholstery material for the last 100 years.
Even at the time you bought yours, Simmons was using memory foam in most of their mattresses. The ones you bought have some latex and no memory foam…which is why I recommended them to you.
Today, Simmons no longer uses latex and all of their mattresses have memory foam.
Also, the ones you bought were “Plush”, which uses a thinner gauge wire for the coils than their firmer models use. At the time, that didn’t matter because the latex is durable and there was no memory foam.
Today, it matters. The memory foam upholstery layers aren’t strong enough to overcome the thin wire coils of the plush models.
As things changed, so have our recommendations.
In order to achieve the same comfortable feel AND last long enough to get your money’s worth, we recommend a luxury firm Beautyrest and a soft 2″ latex mattress topper to go with it.
If you research reviews on Simmons mattresses, you’ll see that they are horrible.
The reason why they are so bad is because of how they’re bought…from store salespeople pushing plush and pillowtop models…which we have totally eliminated from our website.
Your current mattresses come from Simmons World Class Series.
What I recommend today is their Beautyrest World Class Santorini model in Luxury Firm.
Simmons Beautyrest Recharge World Class Santorini
To that, you must add an EverEden 2″ soft talalay latex topper.
Latex Mattress Topper
The latex topper is an absolute must when buying a Beautyrest mattress.
Otherwise, it won’t hold up very well.
Because things have deteriorated so dramatically among the name brands, we’ve spent time at the trade shows, looking for high quality alternatives.
One of my favorites is Natura of Canada.
Their Greenspring line is similarly made to the Simmons Beautyrest, but superior in every way.
The coils are twice tempered, while Simmons’ coils are not tempered.
The coil count is higher than Simmons’ World Class.
The upholstery is natural talalay latex.
There is NO Memory Foam.
It’s what we use at home.
There are 5 choices. I recommend their “Ultra Plush” model for maximum comfort.
