Great site! So glad I found it!
We currently have a Simmons King innerspring bed, which is 4+ years old and we are in need up an upgrade. My wife has lower back pain and neck pain and I often wake up feeling worse than when I went to sleep. We recently vacationed at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, and felt like we’d had a better nights rest than at home. We started our adventure by looking at the Bellagio line of mattresses by Serta. We liked the mattresses and spent a few hours trying them out, but after getting home and doing some research I decided to try some other options and ended up really liking latex.
I’m 5’ 11’’, 180 lbs and my wife is 5’ 5”, 130 lbs – both are back and side sleepers.
I seem to fit the Princess and The Pea mold more than my wife. She does not have much of an opinion on most beds we try out. She thinks she likes a firm bed:)
Bed’s we’ve looked at so far:
The Bedroom Store
We were looking for memory foam when we walked in, but really liked the feel of the latex sleep metrics #2 bed. I was concerned, like you, when they would not disclose what the layers were made of, so I started doing some more research, which lead me to your site.
Tried both the PLB Pamper and Nature and the Savvy Rest Organic.
PLB Nature – We thought it was a touch too firm.
PLB Pamper - A 3”14 ILD topper was added to the top and we thought it was a little too soft. Doug, who is the owner’s son, suggested ordering the 3” 19 ILD topper to give us the perfect feel. Unfortunately, they did not have one for us to try, so we’d have to take a chance. He said he would take the topper back because we were going off of his recommendation, but I would still be stuck with the bed.
Savvy Rest Organic customizable – The setup in the store was Firm/Med/Soft and Firm/Med/Med Dunlop. The Soft Dunlop on top felt a bit too firm for us. They had a 3” Savvy Rest Soft Organic Talalay Topper on hand, so we traded out the 3” Dunlop top layer with the 3” Talalay topper, which we really liked. I believe the topper was around 22 ILD.
So, in conclusion, our favorite mattress to date was the Savvy Rest Organic Dunlop Firm/Dunlop Medium/Talalay Soft, but felt the Savvy Rest was too steep in price. The second option is the PLB Pamper with a 3” Talalay 19 ILD Topper. I’m concerned this setup lacks a medium firmness, since is would be 6” of really firm Talalay (40 ILD), then 4” of really soft Talalay (19 ILD). Does this setup make sense? Even if we went with only the 2” 19 ILD topper instead of the 3” topper? The Third option would be ordering the 10 inch online from Sleep EZ. Their prices are hard to beat! Since my wife and I both liked the Dunlop Firm/Dunlop Medium/Talalay Soft, would you recommend the same from Sleep EZ? I was thinking about getting king size layers since we both liked the same setup instead of customizing the sides. At the very least, I think we’d like the full king layer on top to avoid feeling the seam. I know you usually recommend her side a little softer when there is a 50 lb difference.
I’m starting to get overloaded with information, so I’m reaching out for some advice.
