My sister recommended you to find the right mattress.

Hi Pete,
My sister recommended that I email you as you were very helpful finding her the right mattress.

We’ve been sleeping on out king mattress for the last seven years.
We’ve gotten to the point where neither of us are sleeping well.  
My husband is 5’10” and 180 lbs., I’m 5’5” and 140 lbs. we’re both side sleepers. 
We have an older set of box springs. Our bed set was handmade and sits up pretty high. 
The box springs start at 8” from the floor. We have slats that support the box springs. 
Box springs are 9” tall and the mattress we have now is about 11” tall. 
It’s a no flip mattress and neither of us is comfortable. 
We are 62 and 73 years old, hopefully a new mattress should get us through at least another decade or so. We’ve tried mattress toppers, memory foam, and not sure what to go with now. 
Not sure what other info to give you, but hear you’re the go to guy for help.
Good Morning Laura,

My concern is about the older box springs.
Old, weakened box springs can undermine the support, comfort and longevity of a new mattress.
How old are those box springs?

Thanks, Pete

Hi Pete,
They are probably close to 20 years. 
I always thought as long as they didn’t appear damaged, we could continue to use them.  
The mattress is a doctor’s choice from Denver mattress company.
It’s firm and we both are feeling maybe too firm.  
Thanks, Laura
Hi Laura
If your only complaint is that it’s too firm, simply add a topper to soften it.

Memory foam, however, is worthless.
A high-quality latex topper does the best job and lasts for years.
The Suite Sleep 3” soft organic Latex Topper provides extraordinary comfort.
Here’s a link to those.
Shipping is free and there’s no sales tax.

Thanks, Pete

Hi Pete,
When I say neither of us is comfortable, I mean we’re both waking up sore, especially my husband. 
His hips, especially, and my back hurts getting out of bed until I’m up and moving around. 
I’d be upset to spend that much money on a topper, only to find the soreness we both have isn’t better. 
Is there a less firm mattress set you’d recommend?
Thanks, Laura  
Hi Laura,
Set? Yes.

I wouldn’t recommend any mattress alone that was to be used on a 20 year old box spring.
Here’s a link to the mattress my wife and I are sleeping on…Natura of Canada Greenspring Ultra Plush
I recommend opting for the low profile foundation.

Keeping your mattress clean and dry will increase its longevity.
We recommend our Organic Cotton Waterproof Mattress Protector.
