Sleep EZ Latex Mattress Configuration Review

Hi! We are shopping for a queen size latex mattress to replace a 5-year old Beautyrest World Class Corita Plush mattress. The existing mattress has significant body impressions, particularly on my side, and it apparently does not provide proper support for both of us (we both experience back and shoulder pains). We have read the mattress buying guide on this site as well as many of the posted threads. We would appreciate your input regarding the mattress configuration that was recommended by Sleep EZ using their online “configurator”. I am a 6’-0", 250# male, 62 years old, who sleeps primarily on my side, but, at times, on my back. My spouse is a 5’-7", 150# female, 61 years old, who sleeps primarily on her side, but, at times, on her back. The online “configurator” came up with the Natural Latex Mattress 13,000 (Natural Select Sleep 13") with (4) 3-inch split layers as follows: his side (medium, firm, extra firm, and extra firm); her side (soft, medium, firm, and extra firm); top layer of blended talalay latex and remaining layers of 100% Dunlop latex. We look forward to your reply! P.S. Please advise whether we can re-use our existing Beautyrest World Class low profile foundation with the new latex mattress. Thanks for your help, and thanks for keeping this forum going!

Hi mjo,

There is 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 in post #2 here that can help you assess and minimize the risks of making a choice that doesn’t turn out as well as you hoped for once you actually sleep on your mattress in “real life” but when you can’t test a mattress in person then the most reliable source of guidance is always a more detailed conversation with a knowledgeable and experienced retailer or manufacturer that has your best interests at heart who can help “talk you through” the specifics of their mattresses and the options they have available that may be the best “match” for you based on the information you provide them, any local testing you have done or mattresses you have slept well on and liked that they are familiar with, any special considerations you may have, and the “averages” of other customers that are similar to you. They will know more about helping you to “match” their specific mattress designs or firmness options to different body types, sleeping positions, and preferences or even to other mattresses that they are familiar with than anyone else (including me) so that in combination with your own personal testing you can make the “best possible” choice with the highest chance of success.

I certainly wouldn’t use an online configurator to replace a phone conversation.
