The Hump Up the Middle of a King Size Mattress.

Susan writes:
Hi Pete,
A few years ago, we decided to upgrade from the queen mattress to a king.
We had recently been on vacation and slept on a king size mattress at the hotel. 
The extra space in the mattress was luxurious.
And so, when we got home, we went shopping.
We have been through 4 mattresses over this short period of time. 
Our old queen was 10 years old at the time and still in good shape.
Thank God, we moved it to the guest room and didn’t get rid of it. 
I can’t tell you how many night’s we’ve slept on that mattress in the past 4 years.
It isn’t as soft as the king mattresses we’ve had, but it isn’t bad, like they became.
We are debating as to what to do now. 
Is there a king size that doesn’t sag on each side, leaving a huge hump up the middle? 
If so, we’d like to try again.
Or, we’ll move our queen back to our bedroom and forget the whole idea of sleeping on a king.
We are, both, of average height & weight, and in our mid fifties with no health issues to consider…just the usual aches and pains that come with age.
I’ve been reading your blog and I’m convinced that you have a solution for us. 
I would be most grateful for any advice you can offer. 
Thanks, Susan
Hi Susan,
I can, indeed, help you…and have a proven workable options for you.
First, an understanding of “The nature of the beast” concerning a king size mattress.
A king has two boxsprings, as you know. They run head to foot.
Each boxspring has a rigid border wire around the perimeter.
You then have two rigid edges running up the center of the mattress.
Also, the padding in the center of the mattress remains like new…as no one sleeps there.
Thus, you have the hump up the middle and valleys on either side.
The quality of mattresses, in general, isn’t very good today…unlike your 14 year old queen…purchased at a time when it was difficult to buy a bad mattress.
Today, the mattresses are one-sided and the memory foam padding used, isn’t resilient.
Throw in the two rigid edges of the boxsprings for good measure,
and the end result is the dramatic “King Wave” of hills and valleys.
Your queen doesn’t have any memory foam and has a firmer sleeping surface than you would like. This is easily corrected.
You can add a soft Latex Topper to the queen mattress you have for extraordinary comfort.
Latex is old technology that has no rival, and has had no rival since introduced by the mattress industry in the 1920s.
Latex retains its original shape and feel for many years.
Even if you go with the king, I’ll be recommending, you might want to consider making your queen much more comfortable, anyway.
The EverEden Pure All Natural 2″ Soft Talalay Latex Topper, is what to get.
Here is a link to that latex topper, which can be ordered online.

My wife and I are large people with a king size mattress…that shows no body impressions and has no hump in the middle. The reason is two-fold.
First, the foundations are made of wood…with no border wire.
The support it provides is even, all the way across the mattress.
Second. the upholstery is Natural Talalay Latex…and contains NO Memory Foam.
Even at 220 lbs, each, it resists body impressions.
Our king mattress is 2 years old and still looks and feels brand new.
It’s made by Natura of Canada. 
Their Greenspring line uses an individually pocketed coil unit, made of double tempered steel.
All of these high quality components combine to make a very high quality mattress.
This one will not disappoint you.
Of the 5 available models, the Plush Eurotop is the most comfortable.
Here is the link to that line. They can be ordered online.
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 …
The mattress comes with White Glove 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.
