Need new mattress like the one my friend bought from you.

Hi Pete,
I'm looking for a king size and love a soft mattress. 
I was referred to you by one of your customers. He said you're an expert on best mattress and open to your suggestions. 
I'm 43, 5'6" & weight 175. I have back pain and sometimes my arms and fingers go numb during sleeping. I sleep mostly on my side.
What mattress do you have now?  I just moved and don't have a mattress. 
Thanks, Natashae 



Hi Natashae,
Lots of salespeople push soft mattresses with no thought to durability.
Consequently, many of these mattresses last only a year or two.
A soft mattress that doesn't last is a waste of money...and, often causes back pain.

This recommendation provides firm, but contouring support and a soft sleeping surface that doesn't lose its shape easily.
We've recommended this particular sleep system countless times over the last 10 years.
We've sold hundreds of them...and with zero complaints to show for it.

The mattress is the Simmons Beautyrest World Class Santorini in Luxury Firm.
Shown here:

themattressexpert.com
Beautyrest Recharge World Class Mattress is known for providing both comfort and support. Contact The Mattress Expert to order yours today! 856-874-6894
Add to that, an EverEden all natural 2" soft talalay latex topper 
Shown here:

themattressexpert.com
Talalay Latex toppers are normally purchased as “Soft” for the purpose of softening a too firm mattress. However, both, the Vytex Dunlop & Talalay Latex Mattress ...
Together, they provide excellent support and long lasting surface comfort.

This will take about 2 weeks to get.

Natura Greenspring Mattress recommended for a large woman with herniated discs.

Emily writes:

Hi Pete,
I came across your website and was looking for your recommendation on a mattress, please. 
I'm 27, 5'8", 250 lbs. I have 2 lumbar herniated discs with cord compression. 
Right now I'm sleeping on a nearly 15 year old pillow top mattress with a 2 inch memory foam topper, neither of which are very helpful. 
I've slept on firm mattresses before, but they caused hip pain even after waking, as I'm a side sleeper. 
I'm just tired of changing positions hourly throughout the night. 
Thanks, Emily. 


Hi Emily,
The memory foam topper is worthless. Memory foam, in it's entirety, is a totally worthless material.
However, I'm curious about your 15 year old mattress. They were all made pretty well, 15 years ago.
Would you describe your mattress as, simply lacking comfort...or has it lost support, as well?
Pete

********************************************************************************************

Hi Pete,
It's definitely lost support, I can feel I roll/sink into certain spots.
Emily
 
Hi Emily,
In many cases, a 15 year old mattress is still in good shape and just needs a latex topper...which is why I asked.

My wife and I are approx. 225 lbs, each. She is shorter than you...which makes you two, proportionately, the same.
She, too, has a sore hip.
So, it's a no brainer to recommend to you, that which we sleep on, which she finds to be the best mattress that we've ever tested....and we've home tested quite a few.
I have herniated and bulging discs, as well as, degenerative disc disease...and it works for me, too.
The Natura Greenspring mattresses use a twice tempered pocketed coil unit, with a higher coil count than a World Class Beautyrest...and, upholstered with natural talalay latex...and contains NO Memory Foam.
All the components of this mattress is very high quality and extremely resilient....very long lasting and plenty comfy.
The model we have is the Liberty Ultra Plush. And while that may sound dangerously soft, it isn't. Due to the high quality of the components, it's much firmer than it sounds.
So much so, that we added an EverEden all natural 2" Soft Talalay Latex topper to it for more surface comfort.
Here are links to both items:

themattressexpert.com
Talalay Latex toppers are normally purchased as “Soft” for the purpose of softening a too firm mattress. However, both, the Vytex Dunlop & Talalay Latex Mattress ...
The latex topper arrives via UPS and takes about 2 weeks to arrive.
The mattress comes with white glove delivery and takes as much as 4 weeks to arrive....well worth the wait if you have the time.

Comparing a Serta iComfort to a Lumina Affinity Mattress.

Shantel writes:

Good Evening Peter
I recently have been in the market to purchase a brand new bed and feel like my head is about to explode with all the choices and options available to me. 
I am a female side sleeper, 230lbs, with back neck and hip problems from a car accident. I feel the most pressure and pain in my hips while sleeping as of lately. 
I've narrowed down to two brands and unfortunately online I haven't found many reviews. 
I've enjoyed the Serta icomfort observer super pillow top 
And the Lumina affinity latex euro top. 
The biggest thing that stands out to me is price as serta out the door is $1972
Lumina is $1650. The feel was the same. I just want to make sure I get the best for my support needs and don't want to be in pain again a few years later. 
Thanks in advance for the advice 
Shantel 


Hi Shantel
You won't achieve your goal with either...less so with the Serta.
www.morfurniture.com
The Affinity Hybrid Series of luxury pocketed spring mattresses are engineered to deliver deep conforming comfort, superior support and value.
Even though the word "Latex" is in the name, there's no latex in the description.

Memory foam is thee absolute worst upholstery material ever invented for this purpose.
It wears very poorly.

If you would like a recommendation for a mattress that will properly support a large woman, and provide relief for your hip and back pain, it would be the same mattress we sleep on, at home.
We are, both, your size and suffer from the same ailments. That mattress would be the Natura Greenspring Liberty in Ultra Plush...shown here:

And for extra surface comfort, we have added an EverEden All Natural 2" Soft Talalay Latex Topper....shown here:

For neck pain, there's nothing like the Pure Talalay Bliss Latex/Down Pillow...made of finely chopped latex that you can mold around your head and neck to relieve pressure and pain.

Shopping for a Simmons Beautyrest Mattress at Macy's and Sears.

Hi Peter,
We finally went shopping yesterday and saw a couple of mattresses that we liked.

1) Beautyrest Black Collection Giada Extra Firm (Macy's)
2) Beautyrest Silver Wavecrest Firm (Sears)

They both "seemed" about the same but 1) was twice the price of 2) for the king.
Would you have any comments on the one versus the other? 
Thanks, Barry

A Wolf Two Sided Mattress is like your Old Stearns & Foster Camdenhurst.

John writes:

Hi Pete,
My wife and I have an old Stearns & Foster Camdenhurst mattress, which we have enjoyed for many years.
It's time to replace it and we'd like to get another just like it.
We've been out shopping, but none of the S&F mattresses we've tried feels the same as our Camdenhurst.
Which model, in the Stearns & Foster line, has replaced it?
What do you sleep on?
Thanks, John
 
Hi John,
Nothing that Stearns & Foster makes today, is anything like what they used to make.
Since being purchased by Tempurpedic, every model in the line is loaded with memory foam...memory foam being the worst upholstery material ever invented for this purpose.
S&F used to be known as, "The Cadillac of the Industry". Now, it's just a bad joke, and the joke is on any and all consumers who buy one.
We had been a Sealy/Stearns & Foster retailer for many years. We dropped them when Tempurpedic ruined them, both.

That's not to say that you can't get a mattress like your old S&F Camdenhurst model.
It's a simple matter of matching the components used in the mattress. The brand name means nothing.

We have, from The Wolf Company, a two-sided flippable mattress that uses the very same components that are in your S&F Camdenhurst.
Wolf is a family owned and operated Midwest manufacturer...owned and operated by the Wolf family from when they were first established in 1873 to today.
They make a very fine product and their FedEx shipping method keeps the cost down.
The plush model is called "Brooklyn"....shown here:

themattressexpert.com
Buy a mattress that will last as long as the warranty advertises. Buy a double sided, flippable mattress from The Mattress Expert Today!
All of the, so called, "Name Brands", have good to the dark side...using lots of memory foam, which is purposefully designed to need frequent replacing.
This business of selling more mattresses to the same people, more often, has created a boon for the industry and a nightmare for the consumer.
The name brands have betrayed the consumer's trust, which they had spent decades building...all for the sake of greater profits.
Not unlike many of our other industries. This corporate greed thing is not to be ignored...not if you want to get your money's worth.

I'm also sending you the link to the mattress my wife and I sleep on, which comes with white glove delivery.
The Natura Greenspring takes as much as 4 weeks to deliver...but, it's worth the wait if you have the time.
The Wolf mattress arrives in approx one week.

Simmons Beautyrest Black Mattress for 325 pound guy?

Ron writes:

Hey there Pete,
I am hunting for a good bed that I won't end up with lower back pain half the time. 
Now, the pain goes away after probably 30 minutes but still not fun I have been looking seriously at 3 mattresses. 
I found a clearance Simmons Beautyrest Black Ansleigh plush firm for $800 but no warranty at all. 

What are your thoughts. I would like to have this mattress for a decent amount of time, if possible, and a decent nights rest as well. 
I'm 6'1" and weigh 325 lbs.
Thanks Ron

Hi Ron,
That mattress wouldn't hold you for long, if it were new. It's not. It's several years old. 
It's a factory return, which has already been deemed defective.
That's how it ends up at a clearance center. 

We carry a very well made and very strong two-side mattress from The Wolf Company.
Wolf is a very old, family owned & operated company, from the Midwest.
The same family has been operating that manufacturing facility since they were established in 1873.
I suggest starting with the Tulah model in firm....shown here:

Converting a platform bed to a Glideaway adjustable bed base and latex mattress.

Carl writes:

Hi Pete,
I've been reading your blog and I want to ask you about something I read, (but can't find now).
I read, somewhere, that you offer an adjustable bed base that I can use with my platform bed.
My wife loves the look of the platform. It's very decorative. But, I want an adjustable bed base.
Can you send me the link for that? 
Also, what do you recommend as a mattress for it?
The one we have is shot and needs replacing. I've read about latex and what to go with one of those.
Please help!
Thanks, Carl

Hi Carl,
You read correctly. Here is the link to the "Freestyle" adjustable bed base from Glideaway.
This is an easy, and reasonably inexpensive way to convert your platform bed.

Wolf Adrian or Simmons Beautyrest Broadway mattress for a 2 year old boy.

Vivian writes:

Hi Pete,
I am looking for a mattresses for my 2-year-old son. 
I see that you have recommended the Simmons Beautyrest Broadway in Luxury Firm. I was wondering, why not the firm model?

Thanks, Vivian


Hi Vivian,
The luxury firm and the firm models of the Simmons Beautyrest Braodway provide the same support.
The difference is in the comfort. The luxury firm has a little give and considered the more comfortable of the two.
The firm, has a stiffer surface feel....noticeably less comfortable.

Another option that I like is a latex hybrid model from a company called, Wolf...a very old (1873) Midwest family owned and operated manufacturer.
There are 2 models in this line. I prefer the Adrian for boys and the Adara for girls.
Both are upholstered with all natural latex and contain Zero Memory Foam.
