A Firm and Comfy Mattress for Plus Size People.

Ashley writes:
Hi Pete. 
We recently spent $2000 for a plush king mattress set.
What was comfy has turned into a nightmare. 
The bed has hills (in the middle) and valleys on both sides where our bodies reside. 
We need a recommendation for a semi firm mattress that won’t take us on a national geographic tour each night. 
We are plus size people. Hubby is 280 pounds and I’m 200. 
The mattress had some minor damage (dirt on the side), so we bought it “As is”. 
Stuck with it! Starting over! 
Need sound advice so we don’t repeat this fiasco. 
Thanks in advance, Ashley
Hello Ashley,
Ok then. Let’s start with a couple of basic lessons.
The first is in physics and what it takes to support your body weights.
Unlike a wooden chair, for instance, an upholstered product begins to wear the moment you start using it.
Given this, and what you weigh, the mattress you buy next will need to be firm.
You also have to understand that the mattress industry, as a whole, is an intentionally deceptive business.
A sales person will tell you whatever you want to hear to make the sale.
And while they may not be all that well schooled on the products and their components, how they work or what’s right for you, they are very highly trained in perceiving what it will take to get you to the desk to write up the sale….and they take full advantage of that…and subsequently, you.
I can already hear you objecting to a firm mattress. You don’t like a firm mattress.
Ok, that’s fine. There is a way around that, as well.
It takes years to fully understand this business. Consumer Reports published a mattress issue, where they admitted that this industry was much too complex to understand and therefore, was unable to make any recommendations.
After coming under fire for their honesty, they interviewed a group of people in the Denver area, published their findings based on that small amount of people without actually attempting to understand the products, and let it go at that.
Since then, they have been using machines that test the pressure sensitivity of mattress.
However, the mattresses they’re testing are upholstered with memory foam, which is a temperature sensitive material that softens as it warms from your body heat.
Since they aren’t applying heat during these tests, their conclusions are all wrong, based on the incomplete information. Catching some flack for that, as well, they more recently tested 12 mattresses.
The only upholstery material available that will provide long lasting surface softness…especially under people of your size, is latex.
Since the 1920s, latex has been the best material available for use in or as a mattress.
This is an undisputed fact.
So, your only hope for that comfortably soft mattress, is to add a layer of soft latex to the firm mattress you must have, or buy a mattress that is already upholstered with latex.
Whatever you buy Must have NO Memory Foam in it.
You want and need firm support for your skeletal system, and a soft sleeping surface to relieve your pressure points and relax muscles.
And, just as importantly, it won’t be a waste of money.
Your $2000 is gone. It can’t be part of your mattress investment. You can’t say that since you already spent that money, that you can not now afford to spend much.
I’m afraid that you’ll just have to “let it go”.
You went for a bargain that was no bargain, and you got stung.
I suggest that you donate that mattress to a homeless shelter, and take that $2000 as a tax write off.
If you have a solid foundation, then all you need to replace is the mattress.
The best choice for quality that will be comfortable and hold up well, is the Natura of Canada Greenspring Plush Eurotop…shown here:
Natura Greenspring Liberty Eurotop Latex Hybrid Mattress
Greenspring Liberty Plush Euro Top. Experience deeper, more restorative sleep with the Liberty Plush Euro Mattress. Lush helpings of natural ingredients come together …

These are high quality, elaborately made mattresses that come with white glove delivery.

If the price is more than you can afford, we do carry a good quality mattress and latex topper combination that comes with FedEx delivery.
Specifically, the Tulah Luxury Firm Mattress, and the EverEden 2″ Soft Talalay Latex Topper.
Both links shown here:
Wolf Tulah Two-sided Mattress
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.
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.
All of these products can be ordered online.
Delivery is free and there’s no sales tax.
I suggest using a waterproof mattress protector with every mattress.
Keeping your mattress clean and dry will greatly extend the life and loft of the upholstery materials inside. Ours sleep cool and make NO Noise.

Thanks, Pete
