I’m hoping you can help with a Plushbed question… I’ve sort of given up with them… just not that knowledgeable and seem to follow a script and rigid about doing anything outside the formulaic bit… I have a 10" queen botanical bliss med with orthopedic platform so no sagging boxspring underneath. I’m 175 and mostly a side sleeper… the 10" Med Botanical Bliss is mostly comfortable, but in the mornings I notice that I can’t get a comfortable side sleeping position… hips sink slightly too far, but if top layer was any firmer, pressure relief would drop off. I’m thinking it’s not the 3" comfort layer of med/soft Talalay on top, but a support issue with 6" core OR the lack of a 3" transition layer in the 10" model. Plushbeds won’t sell me the 3" dunlop transition layer that comes with their 12" and instead points me to a 3" med firm Talalay layer for over $500 that they claim is the equivalent and to use this as the transition layer… can you help with this? What would you do? Because I just feel like the 10" model is underspecd and kind of lame without a transition layer. Does any of this make sense?
So this was kind of lengthy, but with alignment issue, am I better off replacing medium firm core with firm core or adding a transition layer of med firm 3" Talalay?
I’m experiencing a version of the quote below, but have a 10" Med with 3" med soft Talalay top layer so better pressure relief…
“It is a 9” medium-firmness Botanical Bliss from Plushbeds. Unfortunately, it was a very uncomfortable first hour of sleep that forced me to move to my couch. The mattress was simultaneously too firm and too soft. It was too firm because, as a side sleeper, I felt a lot of pressure on my hips and side of my rib cage. It was also too soft, because I felt my hips sinking more deeply into the mattress than any other part of my body, forcing my lower back to be out of alignment."
