Hi Mattress Expert,
We LOVED our Simmons Natural Care Latex Hybrid mattress. We bought it in San Diego, CA several years ago...the Sunset Valley Eurotop it was called.
Anyway, we recently decided to up-size to a King size bed, and I could not find that same mattress anywhere!
We have been told by everyone that Simmons no longer makes that mattress.
In fact, most latex beds are a thing of the past. We tried the Beautyrest Edmore Plush and sent it back because it felt like it was sagging after the first month.
It gave me the worst lower back pain. We then moved on to the Serta iSeries Applause Firm. Now this one gives me upper and mid-back pain.
My husband thinks I'm crazy, but I just can't keep waking up like this.
Any suggestions on how to make my Applause Firm feel more like the NaturalCare latex bed we loved so much?
Or should I try for another bed all together?
Thank you SO much for your help!
The response you got comes from industry people who are milking the memory foam cash cow.
And while Simmons has all but abandoned their halfhearted attempt at using latex, latex is very much alive and growing, thanks to the garbage memory foam that is being pushed.
(I should clarify. All memory foam is garbage. There is no "good" memory foam...only some that aren't as bad as others).
While latex is and has been the best upholstery material you can buy anywhere on the planet since the 1920s.
And while you can't buy latex from Simmons, you can buy high quality latex from any number of manufacturers.
Send your Serta iSeries back. You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear. And despite what Consumer Reports has to say, Serta manufactures among the worst mattresses on the market.
Let me suggest to, that which we sleep on at home...Natura of Canada Greenspring...a pocketed coil unit that upholstered with natural Talalay Latex...containing NO Memory Foam.
The most comfortable of their 5 models, is the Plush Eurotop, at the top of this next page:
