Thank you so much for responding and for your help.
I contacted the closest Jamestown Mattress that is near me (Fredonia, NY), but the saleswoman didn’t seem to have in depth knowledge of mattresses. She suggested I contact a Steve at their factory on Monday if they are open New Years Eve.
Just an FYI, I have a full size bed, but I have expansion rails to make it a queen. So, I’ve been getting full and queen size quotes as it’s just me sleeping on it.
She recommended their Majestic Dream model. A full is $1249 including boxspring. The construction of the mattress is:
deluxe plus pocket coil with 2" latex foam euro top (one sided mattress)
720 luraflex, 14 gauge pocket coils
1.7lb polyurethane foam encasement
2.0oz insulator pad
1.7lb polyurethane foam
Dunlop 100" natural latex above liner panel
Quilted border and Quilted panels (Fire Barrier, 1.5lb poly foam, stretch knit fabric)
They also sell a two sided coil bed called Elegant Chiropractic. The queen size is $689 including boxspring. The construction is:
528 luraflex, 14.5 gauge 6 turn coil uni with 6 gauge rim wire
2 oz insulator pad
1.8 oz polyester pad
1.5lb convulted polyurethane foam
Quilted panels (1.5lb poly foam, 1.2 lb poly foam, Damask knit fabric
I contacted Mattresses and More that is closest to me from link that you suggested I look at. The owner, Matthew, spent at least an hour on the phone explaining mattresses and the mattress industry. I found him very helpful and service oriented.
They sell a Talalay Latex only bed (no poly foam). It’s on sale now for $1900 in the queen and $1800 in the full including a boxspring. He explained that Talalay latex is much better than poly foam in that you won’t get the cratering that you do with poly foam and the bed is all Talalay latex. It’s made out of Boston by a company called Englander and the line is called Pure Latex Bliss and it’s made especially for his store. Currently, the mattress is $1000 off until January 1, but I’m not in a rush to buy and need to go to the stores to try them out.
I asked him about the construction of Jamestown Mattress’s “Majestic Dream” bed and he said that you shouldn’t mix coils and polyfoam. The conversation was very long and I can’t remember why.
The latex bed seemed pricey and asked him if they had an old fashioned coil only mattress. He said that he does and that Englander makes these flippable beds for his store. City Mattress told me that there are no more flippable beds, which he said isn’t true and explained what happened with the major manufacturer’s once they changed the fire codes for mattresses.
He has a two sided or flippable coil mattress made by Englander that is a semi firm plush. It sells for $549 (everyday low price) in a queen. It has 448 coils and 12 3/4 gauge wire.
He also sells a dbl sided Englander called Posture Support that is flippable and has individually wrapped coils. It comes in firm-soft. The one that sells the most, he calls the “Goldilocks” because 9 out of 10 people prefer it and it’s $899 in a queen.
All his mattresses and boxpsrings come with a 15 year non-prorated warranty. It’s a small business and he has a delivery and removal charge of $50.
I haven’t had a chance to get out and test these mattresses because, well, it’s Buffalo and we had a major snowstorm yesterday.
So, my questions to you are if it’s really true that you can’t mix coils and poly foam like Jamestown Mattress has with the “Majestic Dream” (non flippable, but recommended to rotate it)? Plus, it seems like I would get a longer lasting mattress that is coil only that I can flip and rotate.
My current mattress is a Kingsdown Orthopedic Firm and it lasted me 15 years. It seems like Mattress and More’s Posture Support would be best for my lower back pain and fibromyalgia if I like it when I test it.
