Simmons Beautyrest Black Desiree Luxury Firm Pillowtop Mattress Causing Shoulder Pain.

Diane writes:
Hi Pete,
We have a new Simmons Beautyrest Black Desiree Luxury Firm Pillowtop mattress in queen. 
My husband seems comfortable with it, as he is a back and stomach sleeper.  
But, I am a back and side sleeper. And while I am happy on my back, I have been experiencing some shoulder pain when sleeping on my side.  
I have been sleeping with an extra pillow padding my shoulder and have to always rearrange it.  
I was pushing for the Simmons Black Desiree Plush Pillowtop for my side sleeping, but was worried it was too soft for stomach sleeping.  
What would you recommend we do to satisfy both of us?  
Should I try to exchange this for the Plush Pillowtop, if possible?  
Are there latex toppers that could be fitted to just my side of the queen-size bed? 
I also have to always try to remember to change my pillows when I shift from my back to my side and then back again, which I don’t always manage to, resulting in a sore neck.  What is the solution to that problem?
Any help from you would be most appreciated!!
Thanks, Diane
Hi Diane,
Your best option is to go with the Desiree luxury firm without a pillowtop and add an EverEden 2″ Soft Talalay Latex Topper.
This is much more comfortable than the upholstery materials used in the pillowtop….since you have the option to exchange.
The plush pillowtop model will do exactly what you feared it would….be too soft for your husband when he sleeps of his stomach.
Adding the latex topper to the luxury firm mattress will provide everything you both want.
Those latex toppers, shown here:

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.

To relieve chronic neck pain, there is no better type of pillow than one made of finely chopped latex.

This allows you to manipulate the material to mold around your head and neck, anyway you like.
It promotes maintaining the alignment of your head and neck with your spine.
I use one at home to relive the pain from the arthritis in my neck. It works well.
Here is a link to that Latex/Down pillow, made by Pure Bliss.

Natural Talalay LatexDown Pillows. 100% Finely chopped latex, providing the comfort and conformity of a down pillow, with the durability of latex.

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.
