Our Serta Pillowtop Mattress is Causing Back Pain.

Andy writes:
Hi Pete,
I have been researching our options for purchasing a new mattress and came across your excellent and informative blog and website.  
Our current mattress is a Serta Pillowtop that is no longer acceptable for us.  My wife has been complaining of back pain, and it makes my back sore as well. 
We never really understood how bad it was until we went on vacation for a week and slept in the beds at the Sheraton.  
The hotel manager said they use Simmons Beautyrest mattresses, so that is what I would like to buy.  
Also, since almost everything I know about mattresses I learned from your website, I am going to purchase the mattress and box spring from you. 
I am still somewhat undecided on what I should do.  
My wife and I are not very heavy (I weigh 150 lbs and she weighs about 105 lbs) and I would like to budget between 1300-1400…1500 tops with tax and delivery, for a queen set.  
For that price, we would like something that will last us ten years without giving us problems, like our Serta pillowtop did.  
My wife prefers a softer bed, so I am thinking that we would like to buy a plush top. 
Obviously, I would like to purchase the cheapest option I can get by with without sacrificing quality.
The other thing I am considering is buying the low end model and then buying a 2″ Latex topper.  
What do you think I should do and Why? 
Thanks, Andy
Hi Andy,
The latex topper will be the key component to providing surface softness and longevity to the mattress.
A lower end Simmons Beautyrest is perfect for your sizes…allowing you to stay within your budget.
The Mattress to get is the Simmons Beautyrest Silver 1 Series Great Lakes Cove in Luxury Firm.

The Latex Topper to get is the EverEden 3″ Soft Talalay Latex

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.

What makes a Beautyrest so comfortable, is the individually pocketed coil unit, which contours to the shape of your body and maintains the natural alignment of your spine.

Alone, they don’t wear well. But, add a soft latex topper to a firm Beautyrest, and it wears very well…lasting you for the 10 years you’re expecting.
Normally, I recommend the 2″, as the 3″ only works for people who are light in weight…not exerting much pressure.
The 2″ is plenty comfy and is what we use at home. But because you two are so light, you can take advantage of the extra depth of softness that the 3″ provides.
Frankly, you can’t go wrong either way.


Delivery is Free and there’s NO SALES TAX
