A Soft Vytex Dunlop Latex Topper on an Old Stearns and Foster Mattress for Plus Size People.

Mark writes:
Hi Pete,
We have a 20 year old firm Stearns and Foster Dryden mattress.
In the last year or so, we are experiencing more back and joint pains when sleeping and so we are looking for solutions to this problem. 
The mattress does not have visible sagging or dipping and seems to be in reasonable shape still.
We are wondering if the 2″ latex topper could be a solution to help us get another few years out of this mattress. 
We are plus size people, weighing 250 and 210 pounds and are side sleepers. 
Is it worth putting a topper on a mattress this old or should we be looking at a new mattress? 
We have been really happy with this mattress up until these recent pains.
We have read your site and saw that they do not make mattresses like they did when we bought this one. We would like to keep it longer, if we could. 
I think we definitely need to get something to get some relief for the pressure points to hopefully help with the back. hip and shoulder pain. 
How long do you expect the 2″ latex toppers to last? Is it the same with either kind of latex topper or does one tend to last longer than the other? 
Thanks, Mark
Hi Mark,
We run into this sort of thing a lot.
That older mattress is much better made that most mattresses today, and certainly better than anything that S&F is putting out now.
The latex topper will return the surface comfort back to your mattress and you could go another decade with it.
It does a fine job of reliving pressure point pain.
The Vytex dunlop is a little more dense than the Talalay.
Given your sizes and the age of the mattress, I suggest the 2″ Soft Vytex Dunlop Latex.
Here is the link.
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.

UPS Delivery is free and there’s no sales tax.

Wait time is approx 2 weeks.


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
