First, I want to thank the website as it’s been a plethora of information I used when shopping for a mattress.
A few months ago, I purchased a hybrid mattress consisting of the L&P Combi Elite with 3" of medium Talalay (Global); the cover is zippered organic cotton w/ wool. Before purchasing, I also tried 3" of soft Talalay but thought it was a little soft as I felt not enough support under my buttocks / lumbar area.
The mattress it was replacing was an older 6" Talalay mattress that was losing it resiliency.
I am 5’8" and 190 lbs. and mostly a back sleeper although I do roll on my side from time to time.
I’ve now been sleeping on it for 2 months now and note the following:
Overall the mattress is relatively comfortable if not a little firm in some places. When I end up on my side, I do notice pressure points on my shoulders / hips.
I tried using the PureCare Aromatherapy 5-sided mattress protector from my prior mattress but felt it changed the feel of the new mattress not for the better as it firmed it up even more. I’ve been sleeping on the mattress without the protector.
In the same breath of the mattress protector, I also notice that different sheets completely change the comfort. Anything but very thin sheets noticeably firms up the mattress.
I’m looking for some guidance as to some options.
Maybe either ditch the L&P Combi Elite coils and do 3 layers of 3" Talalay or do a 6" Talalay core and 3" Talalay comfort layer or take the topper route either with 2" or 3" of Talalay,
As I’m coming up to the end of the 90-day trial I need to make a decision on which path to take.
Thanks in advance.
