Advice for a firm mattress with latex topper for a big man and his wife?

Jamie writes:

Hello Pete!
My husband and I are looking to replace our mattress.  Our main issues:
He is 220 lbs with back problems, thus needing a firm mattress.
My hips hurt on firm mattresses and I sleep hot.
We are thinking of getting a firm or extra firm mattress with a latex topper.  Do you think this is wise?  Is latex hot to sleep on?  

Any suggestions on what level of softness we should go for?

The latex topper on a firm mattress is your only viable option. Of all the foams available, latex sleeps cool. 
Your hip will be comforted and both of you will experience the pressure point relief and muscular relaxation needed for a truly good night's sleep that will last for many years. 
Best choice is the Simmons Beautyrest Black Calista Extra Firm or Desiree Luxury Firm. Add to that, an EverEden  All Natural 2" Soft Talalay Latex Topper.
Here are the links to both products.
