Could you recommend a mattress for me? I have a herniated disc and a bulging disc.
I can't find much latex in the South Florida area to test. Ikea had one but they are redesigning it now.
I tried a Kingsdown with latex on top and liked it. It was firm but had enough latex to cushion the pressure points.
But, Kingsdown doesn't have good reviews. I've been looking for a year now and I don't want to buy out of desperation.
I am 48 yrs. old 5'3" and 138.
Thanks for helping with your advice.

Hi Mary Ann,
Your size mitigates in your favor.
Still, herniated & bulging discs are nothing to fool with. They require firm support. The bulging discs will eventually herniate, without the right support.
Firm support will slow the deteriorating process.
You will want some degree of surface comfort and you have to be careful about that.
Most surface padding is either poly foam or memory foam or both, and neither is good at keeping its shape for very long.
Your size allows you to take advantage of one of our most popular mattress sleep systems.
It's a Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Series, Sandy Springs in Luxury Firm.
The individually pocketed coils of the Simmons Beautyrest contour to the shape of your back, maintaining your spine's natural alignment.
This mattress is on the firm side, so we recommend using an EverEden All Natural 2" Soft Talalay Latex Topper to soften the surface.
This does so, without negating the underlying firm support.
The latex topper will relieve your pressure points and relax your muscles, promoting a deeper night's sleep.
Also, latex foam rubber is far more resilient than the other types of foams and remains like new for many years.
As a side benefit, because the latex is so resilient, it absorbs your body weight, which extends the life of the mattress by double...at least.
Also, Latex sleeps cool.
Here are the links to the mattress and the topper.
