Hip and Sciatica Pain on a Simmons Comforpedic Memory Foam Mattress.

Hotel bedding
Hi Pete,
My wife and I bought a Simmons Comforpedic Blue Sky Firm memory foam mattress, several years ago. 
The mattress was too firm for us, so we exchanged it within 30 days for a Blue Sky Plush. 
This product has not been very kind to us.
I’m a side sleeper, and my wife sleeps mostly on her side but occasionally on her back to relieve back pain. 
I’m 5’9” and 155 pounds. The mattress hurts my back and often puts pressure on my hips and irritates my sciatica. 
My wife is 5’7” and 175 pounds, and she complains constantly about back pain with this mattress. 
We put a hypoallergenic cover on this mattress, but otherwise have done nothing to it.
We went to Orlando last April and slept on a Simmons Beautyrest Chadfield II Eurotop. 
It was absolutely fantastic! I loved it, and my wife liked it a lot. 
For the first time in DECADES, I woke up feeling refreshed.
I hopped out of bed without all of the usual creaking, popping, and stretching. 
After identifying the model, I called the front desk for the firmness, and told me it was medium-firm. 
I went looking for this mattress when I got home, but I found that it had been discontinued.
I don’t know which model would be closest to it.
We purchased a Pinzon Basics Overfilled Ultra Soft Microplush Queen Mattress Pad, in an effort to fix our bed cheaply. 
It’s better than nothing, but it’s doing little more than masking the problems we have with our Comforpedic mattress.
We have tried a memory foam pad in the past, plus this Pinzon product, and we weren’t impressed with either one. 
I’d love to know which model is closest to the Chadfield II Eurotop. 
And I’d like to know if the medium-firm is likely to be the right level of firmness for us. 
The research I’ve done suggests that a pillow top or Eurotop is the mattress type for us. 
What do you recommend?
Thanks a bunch! 

Hi Chet,

Part of the problem that you have is your mattress is topped with memory foam….which provides zero support. 
Memory foam is sold for its comfort. And that comfort doesn’t last long, either.
The Simmons Beautyrest uses individually pocketed coils that provide firm, contour and upward support for your spine.
But even with a Beautyrest mattress, your problem will still exist, to some degree. 
All of the Beautyrest mattresses are topped with the same memory foam that is in your current mattress.
We recommend that you sleep on a luxury firm Beautyrest, and add a 2″ of soft Talalay Latex Topper instead of a pillowtop or Eurotop.
Latex is and has been the best, most comfortable and most durable upholstery material on the planet for the last century.
It isn’t in the mattresses, because it makes them last longer and the industry wants you as a frequent purchaser.
The fact is, that you will need a layer of soft latex to have comfort that lasts.
Since you will need a latex topper, if you have any expectations of longevity, let me propose a solution that does not require buying a new mattress.
Buy the latex topper first.
Your mattress has memory foam on the top, only. It is supported by very firm poly foam.
Flip your mattress over, and add the topper. You will then have the firm support and the comfortable sleeping surface that your body requires.
We’ve been recommending this lower cost solution for quite a long time and most people who have done this are realizing another 5 years of supportive, comfortable sleep.
When you do, finally, buy a new mattress, you can use that very same topper with it, as latex remains like new for a very long time.
You’ll be happy to know that our Soft Talalay Latex foam mattress toppers are all-natural…no chemicals, no synthetics, no fillers.
Delivery is free and there’s no sales tax. The EverEden 2″ Soft Talalay Latex Topper is the one to buy.
If you insist on a new mattress, use that topper on the Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Series Gibson Grove in Luxury Firm. 
It’s one of our most popular and successful sleep systems
These mattresses are delivered free, which include set-up and removal of the old mattress. And, there is no sales tax.
Here are links to the mattress and to the latex toppers.
