Plush or Firm mattress.

Matt writes:
Hi Pete,
I’ve been looking at your recommendations of the Greenspring Liberta mattresses. 
My problem has always been not knowing if I need a plush or firm mattress. 
I am 5’10 170 and I have pain in my hips when I sleep on my sides. 
My wife is 5’8 and about 140. 
Any recommendations?
Thanks, Matt
Hi Matthew,

One would think that a simple question would have a simple answer.
In fact, your question would have been easy to answer 20 years ago, when it was nearly impossible to buy a bad mattress.
Today’s, it’s equally as difficult to buy a good one.
So, let’s start with answering your question.
Short of addressing someone with extreme physical damage, ever body requires the same thing…some degree of firm support with some degree of surface softness.
Mattresses, like all other upholstered products, are pressure sensitive items.
How much weight you’re applying is a factor in determining which mattress is required to support that weight…and which upholstery materials are needed to provide surface comfort that lasts.
Another factor to consider is the physical ailments that need to be addressed.
In the old days, (not all that long ago), you could go to a store and walk out with whichever mattress that you found most comfortable…and that would have been that for the next decade or so…not so today.
Today’s mattresses, (most of them), are upholstered with memory foam.
THIS is what makes buying a mattress so difficult today.
All of the name brands, that you could once trust to make a quality mattress, have been sold to investors who have changed to using memory foam for the express purpose of enhancing profits…quality be damned.
Memory foam is specifically designed to cause a mattress to need frequent replacing…and NOT under the terms of the warranty.
Memory foam sleeps hot, wears quickly and off gasses the toxic chemicals from which memory foam is made…just to add insult to injury.
Memory foam is THEE thing to avoid when buying a mattress, if you are to make a successful purchase.
You asked about the Natura of Canada Greenspring mattresses.
Those are our strongest, longest lasting mattresses.
If fact, they are the highest quality mattresses I could find while shopping at the industry trade shows.
However, they are not what I’d recommend for you.
They are too strong to address a hip issue for someone of your size.
Even the ultra plush model is too firm for you.
Similarly made, with a bit more give to cushion your hip, is the Wolf Tulah Plush Eurotop Mattress….an ideal choice of your sizes.

Wolf Tulah Latex Hybrid Mattress
This mattress provides the right degree of support and surface comfort for your size and to address your hip pain….having NO Memory Foam in it.

Shipping is free and there’s no sales tax.

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