Hello…I recently purchased a new 9" latex matress from SleepEz. I am having some comfort issues I am hoping to resolve. Purchased a split king for wife and I, both sides actually having the same options, from the bottom up, 3" firm dunlop, 3" medium dunlop, 3" medium talalay, with a 3" soft talalay topper in its own cover.
For the wife, it is perfect, she is very happy. At first, I thought this was what I wanted, but I found I am having lower back pain in all kinds of configurations. Where I have ended up (from bottom to top) is medium talalay on bottom, then medium dunlop, the firm dunlop with the soft topper. This is providing the back support I apparently need, as I am NOT waking with a stiff lower back anymore. However, I am experiencing some shoulder pressure that is giving me some discomfort. Even with the firm in the middle with medium dunlop above (and puttting the M-talalay on bottom) I was having stiff lower back and it was waking me.
For some background, I am about 5’9" and about 185 pounds. I am primarily a side sleeper, but also sleep on my back. While I am not having lower back pain anymore, the shoulder pressure is starting to bother me, and it also just doesn’t make sense to me that I have the softer layers on bottom, with firmer layers up high (with the topper being the exception).
Do I need more firm layers below for support and put the medium talalay directly under the topper to get the needed contouring?
Should I exchange a layer or two and reconfigure? Thanks in advance.
