First of all, THANK YOU for all the information provided on this site. I’ve learned so much!! I can’t thank you enough for all the contributions made here =)
5’4/115lbs/back sleeper…but will be pregnant in the next 2-3 years/currently have back pain
“Lighter weights will need softer and thinner comfort layers”
“Flatter profiles will need thinner and firmer comfort layers”
(How do I know if I have a flat profile??)
Because I am considered a light weight, is it okay to have a soft 3" Talalay (T)/soft 3" Dunlop (D)/ medium Dunlop (D) configuration? I am under the impression that I would need a medium firm mattress to support my back pain… Is it okay to just have medium Dunlop as a base and NOT have firm Dunlop for the bottom layer?
I went to Flexus today and all the firm bases I tried (5 different configurations of T & D) were too firm when I laid on my side. I didn’t feel the cradle on my side–it was too firm–until I had the medium Dunlop as my bottom layer.
Also, one of their default models was the 10" – 3" soft T/ 6" block (NOT 3"+3") Dunlop felt like it cradle my side more than soft T/medium T/medium T? I know in theory that the latter should feel softer, but it didn’t to me… Is it just me? Can someone please explain/confirm this? The
3" soft T/ 6" block Dunlop surprisingly felt more comfortable to me…
Is it better to have a 6" block of medium Dunlop as support core with 3" soft Talalay comfort foam or 3"+3" Dunlop as support core with 3" soft Talalay comfort foam? I know the latter would feel softer and I just wanted your opinion if this is just based on preferences only?
Thank you for your knowledge and advice.
