A Mattress for a Plus Size Woman with RA on a Budget.

Valerie writes:
Hi Pete, 
I’m 51 years old plus size woman and I’ve suffered from RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) for over half of my life. I had a stroke, awhile back, and could no longer work. 
I’m on a disability budget that makes life just bearable. I’m in need of a mattress, period! I’m 6 ft tall and weight around 340 lbs.which
This excessive weight makes life a living hell if you’re struggling to sleep on a mattress that’s over 8 years old, which I know wasn’t meant for some one my size. 
I didn’t start off this size. After years of bad medical treatment/advice, I’ve been on steroids for over 25 years. Yeah, the weight just kept coming and as long as I’m on prednisone. 
I can forget about going back to modeling weight! Oh, yeah, I did a little modeling in my younger years, but once I was diagnosed with RA and given steroids, the weight became a big issue. 
So, here I am struggling, trying to make lemonade out of lemons! My needs are many, but my money is little. That’s my life in a nutshell. 
Getting a goodnight sleep is something I can only daydream about. So, that means I suffer extremely badly from the lack of sleep, which in turn affects my heath. 
You’re probably wondering who this sleep-deprave women is? Why is she telling me all this? 
Well, the internet is my best friend at this point in my life and when I need advice, she opens her windows and enlighten me. 
I googled info on best mattress for a plus size sleep, and viola, your blog.site came up! Your advice and genuine concern for each potential customer, touched me. 
I knew that I was where I could possible get some help. 
I truly need a mattress set that I wont have to sell my soul to afford. What kind of help can you offer someone like myself on a disability income? 
I’m not picky. I’ll accept almost anything that’s not detrimental to my health. Returns, discontinued, damage, un-sellable, anything that can help me sleep better and feel better. 
I’m at my ropes end and I’m hanging on for dear life. 
Pete, I hope you’ll be able to help me. I appreciate anything that you may be able to do for me. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Respectfully, Valerie 
Hi Valerie,
You have a complicated and difficult situation. Knowing all this will help me help you.
We don’t carry anything that has been used. Everything we sell is brand new, made factory fresh to fill your order.
The last thing anyone needs, is to inherit someone else’s problems.
So, let’s start from the bottom up…with products that are strong and inexpensive.
You can support the mattress with a boxspring and a frame, but that will cost more than starting with a “Basic Black Platform Bed”, which replace them both.
Shown here:
Basic Black Platform Bed BaseReplaces Bed Frame and Foundation (Boxspring)Measures 14″ High, Allowing 10″ of Storage SpaceSturdy ConstructionProvides Excellent …

The next thing is a mattress to put on that platform bed.

The mattress I have in mind for you, is very strong, using the strongest coil unit available….a two side mattress that you can flip…and, it’s inexpensive.
That would be the Tulah Firm Mattress
Shown here:
Old Fashioned made Two Sided Mattress that you can flip. Strong coil unit and NO Memory Foam. Durable for Plus Sized People. Works with Adjustable Bed Bases.

The above two items supply the support needed for a person your size.

Next, we address the surface comfort for your RA. We do that with Soft Latex.
An All Natural Latex Topper is the best place to start because it is the most comfortable, most resilient material available and it’s maintenance free…you just set it and forget it.
It never shifts or bunches up and never needs re-positioning. I suggest the EverEden 3″ Soft Vytex Dunlop Latex Topper.
Shown here:

Soften the surface of a too firm mattress. Insulate yourself from the memory foam in your mattress to Sleep Cool. Extend the comfort life of your mattress.

After all this is set up, should your RA require an even greater degree of surface softness than the latex provides, you can add a feather bed topper.

Even though these feather toppers are extremely comfy, they need continual maintenance in the form of daily fluffing up….an exercise you may find difficult.
However, the feather bed toppers are basically worthless unless you’re prepared to perform this daily chore.
I have a friend with severe RA, and this DID become necessary for her. But, it did the trick.

Preferred in many upscale hotels, this fluffy design provides lasting comfort and a touch of luxury. Provides a more restful sleep by gently cushioning pressure …
