Numbness and Back Pain of a Stearns and Foster Pollock Hybrid Mattress.

Michael writes:
Hi, Pete,

I’m hoping you can help with our dilemma.  We purchased the Sterns and Foster Hybrid Pollock mattress.  
My wife cannot sleep on this mattress.
She sleeps on her stomach and complains that she wakes up with numbness, lower back ache, and a neck ache.  
Since this mattress was an exchange from a Pure Bliss Talalay latex mattress, we are stuck with it.  
Currently, my wife is sleeping in our guest bedroom.  
We shopped locally, and tried a Serta Gladwyn mattress, which has only one inch of memory foam.  
It felt comfortable in the store, however, we are hesitant to purchase this as we worry over the memory foam.  
They also sell a Simmons Beautyrest Silver mattress.  
We aren’t sure whether to purchase the Serta or Beautyest mattress.  
We realize that memory foam is not the way to go, but we feel we need to make a decision.  
The mattress my wife is currently sleeping on in our guest bedroom is an old Sealy Ultra Plush Euro Pillowtop. 
She loves it.  The only problem is that this mattress is a queen and we require a king so we can’t swap it out.  
Can you help us, as we would like my wife to, once again, sleep in our bedroom?
Many thanks, Michael
Hi Michael,​

It’s the memory foam causing the back pain and numbness.
All name brand mattresses are upholstered with memory foam, since they were sold.
Tempur-Pedic bought Sealy and S&F. An investment group bought Simmons and Serta.
All of their mattresses will be a repeat of your current mistake.
Pure Bliss was the best of what you recently bought, with latex being far superior to memory foam.
But even that mattress doesn’t provide the pushback support of an innerspring mattress.
I recommend the Wolf Hybrid Tulah mattress, using a very strong individually pocketed coil and latex/poly foam upholstery for good surface comfort that is not too soft. It’s ideal for a female stomach sleeper.
Here’s a link to that mattress.

You can use your current foundation, as it is very strong.

Shipping is free and there’s no sales tax.

We recommend using a waterproof mattress protector with every mattress.
Keeping the upholstery materials clean and dry will extend the life of the mattress.

Thanks, Pete
