About two-and-a-half years ago we finally had to replace the foam mattress that had served us well for almost 35 years. We spent quite a lot of time shopping and comparing. The mattress that came closest to what we wanted, that we could afford, was one from Sleep Innovations that we bought from Costco. It’s 11" thick, with a base of solid foam 6" thick, a layer of eggcrate foam 3" thick, topped with 2" of memory foam.
Initially, it was good, but not great. Not long ago, when re-arranging the room, we discovered that if we turned the mattress over and slept/layed on the bottom it became great! That solved half of our problem…
Our bedframe is a platform with drawers. It doubles as our bed platform and dresser. It, therefore, can’t be adjusted for height. When it was made, it was sized for the foam mattresses we had just bought, which were 5" thick. The new mattress being about twice as thick, it is difficult getting in and out of bed (and getting more difficult all the time (we’re both in our sixties)).
My question: does anyone have any suggestions for cutting the mattress to make it about half as thick? I’ve already looked in the cover. The layers are glued together and won’t separate without tearing.
Any suggestions ?
