So, I am looking to replace my current mattress, which is old and sagging, and hurting my back. I’ve been doing a ton of research over the last month or two, as mattresses are quite costly and I expect to have this mattress for many years to come. I’ve been looking mainly at latex hybrids (latex with foam core or latex over coils). They seem to provide the best price to quality/durability of all mattresses in my price range (around $1500, give or take). We don’t seem to have much in terms of smaller independent mattress companies in my area, Fort Wayne, Indiana, or at least none that I’ve seen. The only place I could find in the area to test out latex hybrids was at Denver Mattress Company, where they sold the Telluride, Aspen, and Snowmass. I went there just to get an idea of what I liked, and what I didn’t like. I was able to cross off memory foam and confirm that latex hybrids are something that I would definitely like. I tend to enjoy a mattress that is medium but supportive in terms of firmness, I guess that would be the best way to describe it. I don’t like to sink deep in the mattress, I like a little give, but not enough to feel like my lower body is sinking below the rest. From trying out the three mattresses listed above I came to the conclusion that the Snowmass was too plush, I though I sank in too deep. The Aspen was a bit firmer, and more towards my liking, but maybe a bit on the firm side. The Telluride, to me, seemed a bit firmer than the Snowmass, and I mean just a bit, I wish it was a touch firmer. So if I was to pick a mattress at Denver it would be the Aspen or Telluride. The Telluride seemed to be of better quality though, from looking at the ones on the showroom floor.
I’m just trying to get an idea of how these mattresses compare in terms of quality and firmness to the other companies I’ve been considering (Brooklyn Bedding, Parklane, SleepEZ). These companies are a few that I’ve come across while searching the forums. They seem to be reputable and people have great things to say about them. Brooklyn Bedding has two mattresses that I’m interested in, The Bamboo Bliss and The Aloe Alexis. They seem to have essentially the same construction, and I’m just curious if it would be worth spend the extra $200 for 6 inches of latex, compared to 3 inches. Will it offer any durability benefits in the long run? Will it offer any additional comfort or adjustability (could i customize both layers)? Looking at the specs of the mattresses from Denver Mattress Co, which comfort level of Brooklyn Bedding would be closest to something around the Aspen or Telluride? I also wanted to know what you thought about their Omalon foam core? I didn’t seem much info on their website.
Looking at Parklane I’ve come across the Crestwood and Arcadia. Both latex hybrids with offset coils, so I assume they’ll feel similar to the Telluride at Denver Mattress Co. My main question is how will a layer of memory foam, in the Arcadia, effect the feel of a latex hybrid? They are both listed as a ‘medium’ in terms of firmness, but will the layer of memory foam make the Arcadia feel a touch firmer? Looking at the specs, is it possible to tell how much firmer, if at all, these mattresses will be compared to the Telluride?
From SleepEZ, I saw their 14" Euro Top Hybrid (I think that’s the right one, their website confused me). They don’t give much information about their foam core. I was wondering if anyone knew a bit more about this mattress? It seems very similar to the mattresses at Brooklyn Bedding. Is there any benefit to picking one over the other? I was also looking at their Eurotop Pillowtop, which is 3 inches of latex over coils. The website doesn’t give much info on this mattress either. I was wondering if anyone knew a bit more about this mattress and the quality of materials used.
Additional Info: I’m a 5’10 male, 175lbs, a side/stomach sleeper. 80% side, 20% stomach. My current mattress is the main culprit for my low-mid back pain. Yoga seems to help relieve the pain.
Thanks for the help, I’ll be browsing around all day if you need any more information.
