I just recently purchased a Sleep EZ King organic latex mattress. I did a bit of research and was able to test out the Savvy Rest and thought it felt soft but had support but after getting my Sleep EZ last week it feels like I am sleeping on concrete. I can’t sleep the whole night I toss and turn and my spine feels like it is taking all my weight as I feel pain all the way up and down my spine. I know there is an adjustment period, but I am not getting any sleep. My layers are (top to bottom) M Talalay, M Dunlop ,F Dunlop and the other side which my girlfriend sleeps on is S Talalay, F Dunlop, F Dunlop which she says isn’t bad but she does wake up a little sore in her back. With that said I will be calling Sleep ez today to see what we can do as far as exchanging layers. I am 6ft 200 pounds and she is 5’7’’ 160.
Another reason I am posting is I want to see what we can do to help make this mattress feel a little more like a pillow top mattress as I feel like that may be a big issue too as we both miss the fluffy part of a pillow top mattress. I was thinking a wool topper may work or even a layer of gel/memory foam on top.
Hello and thank you so much for your order and thank you for reaching out to us as well! Please call our showroom and any of our Sleep Experts will be happy to help with dialing in the comfort level of your new Sleep EZ mattress and discussing all options. How long have you had the mattress? Please keep in mind that typically it can take two weeks to adjust to a new mattress. It’s great to have an opportunity to visit a showroom and try out different configurations to find a starting place, but the true test is after you have slept on the new mattress. When you went to Savvy Rest did you try the mattress just as you ordered it from us or did you try all Talalay or with a topper perhaps? For you at 200 lbs and 6 ft we could certainly go a bit softer as you are in what we call a “Gray Zone”, meaning that you are right at a cut off for a Soft/Medium/Firm configuration and right at the beginning criteria for the Medium /Medium/Firm configuration. As such, getting the mattress dialed in for you would normally just require a layer exchange.
If you are looking for an even plusher feel then we would recommend adding a 2” or 3” topper. Having a top layer that is not encased with the rest of the mattress will allow that top layer enough spatial freedom to flex upwards when you lay on it, making for a very plush and enveloping feel. This is what I recommend to customers that are used to pillow top mattresses, memory foam mattresses, or people that are looking for a softer or plusher mattress in general.
I will admit we have only had the mattress since Friday so we only had 4 nights on it, but I had gotten to the point I couldn’t sleep on it as I was in so much pain. I did buy a 3" Tempur-pedic topper yesterday and it made a world of difference as last night was the first night I got 7 straight hours of sleep I did wake up a little sore but I think that is from the other restless nights. The topper has also given us the plush/pillow top feel we were looking for. We will stick with this setup for at least a week or two and see how we feel.
As for testing the Savvy Rest I did go in with my exact setup as I did call you guys to see what configuration I would need.
Thanks for your help!
