A Mattress for Plus Size People with Back Problems.

Shelly writes:
Hi Pete,
We are plus size people. I am a female weighing 215 and 5’8″ tall. My husband is 5’10 and weighs about 205.
I have had surgery to replace C5/6 and have mid and lower back problems as well. I need help. 
I wake up in pain and I am up and down all night. We have a Serta pillow top that is past needing to be replaced.
We went to a sleep number shop and while it seemed nice I am not so sure.
My doctor recommended medium firm.
What mattress do you recommend?
Thanks, Shelly
Hi Shelly,
An air mattress would be a horrible mistake.
Like a waterbed, an air mattress relies on displacement for support.
You back needs the push back support, only had with an innerspring.
I have two good options for you. Both, we’ve tested at home…and under similar conditions. My wife and I are, each, about 225 lbs.
I have a number of disc related back problems…and my wife has a sensitive hip.
Both options worked well.
Option 1, we tested for 4 years…and was in like new condition when we gave it to our son and his wife. They are small people, but not as heavy.
It’s still in like new condition after another 2 years.
The mattress is the Simmons Beautyrest Black Desiree in Luxury Firm.
And, an EverEden all natural 2” Soft Talalay Latex Topper...instead of a pillowtop.
Simmons mattresses aren’t as strong as option 2, which makes the latex topper an absolute necessity.
Here is a link to those products.
Simmons Beautyrest Black Mattresses are ON SALE with FREE DELIVERY from The Mattress Expert. Call today to place your order! 856-874-6894


EverEden all Natural Latex Mattress topper
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.

Option 2, is made the same…but, the coils are stronger and the upholstery is natural Talalay Latex…and doesn’t need a separate latex topper.

We’ve been using this mattress for the last 15 months.
It shows no signs of wear, not even the slightest body impression.
And, it costs less.
The mattress is the Natura of Canada Greenspring Plush EuroTop model.
Shown here, at the top of the page.
Natura Greenspring Liberty Eurotop Latex Hybrid MattressNatura Greenspring Liberty TT
Greenspring Liberty Plush Euro Top. Experience deeper, more restorative sleep with the Liberty Plush Euro Mattress. Lush helpings of natural ingredients come together …
You can’t go wrong either way, but, option 2 has the better quality components.
It’s the better value, as well.

Thanks, Pete***********************************************************************************************

Hi Peter,
How do you feel about the SAATVA adjustable bed base with either of these mattresses? 
Thanks, Shelly

Hi Shelly,

Either mattress will work with an adjustable bed base.
If you are considering one because you like to hang out in your bedroom, it’s great for that.
If you’re buying one because of your back, don’t.
It’s a lot of money to spend on something that has very little therapeutic value…despite sales pitches to the contrary.
Delivery is Free and there’s NO SALES TAX
Protect your mattress from perspiration and other stains that will void the warranty of your new mattress.

  1. Thanks Pete for your help. We have decided to go with the option 2 Greenspring Plus Euro Top. Do you know if the mattress/foundation combo is the forever foundation?
