Simmons Beautyrest Black Desiree Mattress and Latex Topper for a Large Man.

Alex writes:
Hi Pete,
I’ve always thought that I needed a firm, very firm mattress, as I’ve had lower back issues since high school. (when I was much lighter.
However, I recently had to use an air mattress with a frame for an extended period of time. 
The mattress has a slow leak so that in the morning, I wake up on a half deflated mattress, and me in pain. 
What mattress, latex topper combination would work best for my size, 6′ 2″ 230 Lbs.?
My plan is to have a mattress, latex topper combination on a platform bed. 
My initial thoughts were for a firmer mattress so that the overall feel would not be too soft. 
Your posts have suggested similar thinking, and to soften the sleeping surface with a latex topper. 
I wasn’t sure if the platform would cause me to need a softer mattress than usual.
I appreciate your feedback as I really need to order a new bed before the air mattress completely deflates.
Thanks, Alex


Hi Alex,

Any platform bed with the proper support will be as good support as anything else.

(A head to foot beam that supports all the slats up the center of the bed…and legs from there that reach the floor)

The Mattress/Latex Topper combination for a man your size, would be the Simmons Beautyrest Black Desiree in Luxury Firm and the EverEden Pure, All Natural, 2″ Soft Talalay Latex topper...Both links to those products, shown here:
