Parklane Quimby vs Pettygrove

Hi Indobali,

There is more information in post #9 here about the different ways that one mattress can “match” or “approximate” another one. Every layer and component in a mattress (including the cover) will affect the feel and performance of every other layer and component and the mattress “as a whole” so unless you are able to find another mattress that uses exactly the same materials, components, and design (which would be very unlikely) then there really isn’t a way to match one mattress to another one in terms of “comfort” and PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences) based on the specifications of the mattress.

Mattress manufacturers generally try to differentiate their mattress from the mattresses made by other manufacturers and don’t normally try to “match” another mattress that is made by a different manufacturer so while you may find similar mattresses that use similar materials … it’s very unlikely that you will find another mattress that is specifically designed to “match” or “approximate” either one of the mattresses you mentioned in terms of PPP so the only way to know how two mattresses compare for you in terms of how it “feels” or in terms of firmness or PPP would be based on your own careful testing or actual sleeping experience on both of them.

Two of the most important links in the tutorial that I would especially make sure you’ve read are post #2 here which has more about the different ways to choose a suitable mattress (either locally or online) that is the best “match” for you in terms of “comfort” and PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences) that can help you assess and minimize the risks of making a choice that doesn’t turn out as well as you hoped for when you sleep on it in “real life” and post #13 here which has more about the most important parts of the “value” of a mattress purchase which can help you make more meaningful quality/value comparisons between mattresses in terms of suitability (how well you will sleep), durability (how long you will sleep well), and the overall value of a mattress compared to your other finalists (based on all the parts of your personal value equation that are most important to you).

As you can also see in the guidelines here … I would avoid the major brands such as Serta, Sealy, and Simmons or any mattress where you aren’t able to find out the specifics of the type and quality of the materials inside it (see this article) so you can identify any lower quality materials in a mattress and make meaningful comparisons with other mattresses.

You are certainly looking in a good direction and as you probably know Parklane is a member here which means that I think highly of them and I believe that they compete well with the best in the industry in terms of their quality, value, and service.

The Quimby uses a combination of memory foam, latex, and polyfoam on top of an offset coil innerspring and the Pettygrove uses latex and polyfoam on top of a pocket coil so they are both hybrid mattresses that use different types of innersprings and different types of comfort layers. There is more about the different types of innersprings in this article and in post #10 here and there is also more about how memory foam compares to latex in post #2 here. Neither one of them use any lower quality materials that would have a negative effect in terms of durability so the choice between them will really depend on which of them your own careful testing (hopefully using the testing guidelines in the tutorial) indicates is the best “match” for you in terms of PPP along with all the other parts of your personal value equation that are most important to you.

I’m looking forward to finding out what you end up deciding.
