Back Pain. It’s nearly impossible for me to sleep on a hybrid mattress with memory foam.

Hi Pete!

I have been reading your blog-Q&As trying to find the right mattress to purchase.
I had read somewhere that a platform bed can cause a traditional innerspring mattress to breakdown faster. 
I would prefer to use a platform bed if it won’t deteriorate faster due to storage capacity/lower bed height.
I am a nurse, so like most all of my coworkers, I have a bad back and disc issues. 
My husband has shoulder pain and is a side sleeper. 
I noticed that you recommended the Wolf Adara Plush and the Liberty Ultra Plush (Greenspring/Natura).
We purchased a new bed, approx. 5yrs ago, and my back has hurt ever since.
It’s nearly impossible for me to sleep on the bed. It is a hybrid mattress with memory foam. 
You sit on the edge of the bed and it completely collapses (of course it did not do this in the store). 
You can also sit in the middle of your “sleep spot” and can feel the slats underneath you.
The bed completely compresses.
I desperately want to purchase a new bed and make the right decision.
And hopefully, have a good night‘s sleep pain free.
Do you have any advice or recommendations? 
We would like to change from a queen to a king, and our dog sleeps with us.
Thank you so much for your time!


Hi Dara,

If you are average size people, the Wolf Adara or Tulah is all you’ll need.
Given your husband’s shoulder pain, I recommend the Tulah.
The Natura of Canada Greenspring Ultra Plush is more appropriate for heavier people.
They are similarly made, with the Greenspring mattresses being much more substantial…a good choice for anyone wanting the best.

The warning about platform beds, that you read, was applicable decades ago, but has no meaning in today’s world.
The only warning that applies, today, is to make sure that the platform bed is well made…with plenty of slats, narrowly spaced, with a center support running head to foot, and with legs that support that center beam to the floor.
Nothing we carry has memory foam in it.
Your experience should tell you that memory foam is THEE thing to avoid.
Either mattress can be ordered online.
Delivery is free and there’s no sales tax.
The Wolf mattresses ship via UPS.
The Natura mattress comes with white glove delivery, which includes setup and removal of your old mattress.
The Natura mattress takes a good month to arrive.
The Wolf mattress takes half the time.
I recommend flipping your current mattress over.
While not a permanent solution, it’ll reduce you pain while you wait.
Thanks, Pete
Keeping your mattress clean and dry will increase its longevity.
We recommend our Organic Cotton Waterproof Mattress Protector.
