A New Mattress or Just a Latex Topper for now?

Alice writes:
Hi Pete,
We just got back from vacation and have discovered that our mattress isn’t as comfortable as the one we slept on for the past week.
So, we are looking for a recommendation for a new mattress that will suit our needs.
We are in our 60s, average height and weight. We do have some occasional back pain, but nothing severe or diagnosed.
The mattress we have is a 15 year old Sealy Posturepedic.
We hadn’t had any reason to to replace it. It doesn’t hurt our backs. It’s just not as comfortable as our hotel mattress was.
I’ve read through some of your blog posts and wonder if just a latex topper might be enough for now.
Please advise about that and which mattress to buy, should it come to that.
Thanks, Alice 
Hi Alice,
The first thing to consider is a latex topper for the mattress you have.
Today’s mattresses aren’t made, nearly, as well as they were 15 years ago.
If your current mattress is still supportive and has only lost some of it’s surface comfort, a latex topper is the way to go.
Latex is and has been the best upholstery material for the last 100 years, providing extraordinary comfort and remaining like new for years.
Latex is a natural product, starting as the sap from the rubber tree. It’s soft and resilient, producing the feeling that you’re floating.
A latex topper is not a wasted purchase. You’ll be able to use it on the next mattress you buy….when that time comes.
I recommend the Pure Talalay Bliss 2″ Plush Natural Talalay Latex Topper.
The link to that, shown here:
My recommendation, for a mattress, is the Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Series Gibson Grove in Luxury Firm.
You will also need that same latex topper to go on it.
That recommendation is based on your sizes and physical condition.
The memory foam, used by Simmons, does not off gas any toxicity.
But, even their memory foam doesn’t wear well. Hence, the need for that latex topper.
This mattress uses a pre-compressed, individually pocketed coil system, which contours to the shape of the body and maintains the natural alignment of the spine.
The pre-compression of the coils, (a 9″ coil in a 7″ pocket), provides the push back support a damaged back requires for long term use.
The choice of a ‘luxury firm’ model, gives the firm support a body requires, without being too hard.

Simmons Beautyrest Gibson Grove
The importance of this sleep system combination, over other choices on our website, is partly due to there being a female using the mattress.
The less stringent coils of the Beautyrest, combined with the underpinning of the memory foam, provide a better ease of contouring.
This is especially useful for the usual shape of the female body…providing better relief at the hip…the usual sore spot for many women.
Both of you being of average weight, makes this sleep system combination your best choice.
This mattress comes with White Glove Delivery, which includes set-up of the new and removal of your old mattress.
The latex topper arrives via UPS.
Delivery, for both, is free and there’s no sales tax.
