My husband and I have been sleeping on a latex mattress for 7 or 8 years now and we LOVE it. A few years ago, we switched from queen to king due to medical issues - we needed the extra room. We’ve been on the all natural top of the line IKEA 7-Zone all latex mattress and with our deteriorating medical conditions, we need some extra softness to the mattress. I was going to go with Foam By Mail but after reading about Dreamform Bedding/Brooklyn Bedding and how helpful they are, we decided to go with them. Chuck has been great as was stated here and they are going to custom laminate two different ILD’s for us at no extra charge! It’s perfect. My husband is going with 28ILD (which is what the top layer of our original talalay latex mattress was) but I’m wanting something softer (always did wish the top of the original was a little softer for me) but I have no way of being able to decide which one to go with - 19ILD or 24ILD. I’m disabled with a genetic condition where I have overall joint and muscle problems, multiple dislocations per day, a life threatening breathing disorder where my airways close off completely and high pressure in my head/brain causing a mega bad headache 24/7…just to name some of the problems this genetic condition has caused. I’m 5’3" and weigh around 160lbs although that fluctuates during hospital visits, etc. I used to be smaller but the wheelchair has caused issues with some weight gain from not being able to be as mobile. We tried an eco memory foam topper but after a couple of months, we’ve come to completely HATE it! It sleeps hot even though its not supposed to, there is no pressure relief and with my issues and my husband having been diagnosed with both psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia, we have to make a change.
So, with my hubbie decided on his ILD, I’m still left unsure what to do because they don’t really do returns from the Amazon site as they are selling the toppers so inexpensively to compete with the lower quality imports. Anyone have experience with either the 19ILD or the 24ILD as their comfort layer or have any advice for me? Chuck said either should be fine in terms of me not bottoming out but I’m still not sure which way to go. I’d really appreciate any help you can offer in terms of advice and experience, etc.
Thanks so much in advance!!!
