Hi Jrob8604, welcome to The Mattress Underground
Glad to have you here.
[quote] Been mattress shopping a few weeks now. And need help with suggestions.
The best feeling mattress we tested in store was a hotel collection by airloom, it looks like it’s a hybrid innerspring with several different layers of foam and a hand tufted top they call “streamline”. It does feel amazing however I have trouble swallowing paying for a mattress over 4K. Here is a link of the exact model we tested. King size luxury firm. Does anyone know anything comparable? We’re possibly looking at a wink bed luxury firm, or firmer, not sure which one is best. We tried some latex mattresses from posh and lavish but they didn’t blow us away.[/quote]
[quote] Some info on us
I’m 5’10 235 lbs, and am primarily a back sleeper.
My gf is 5’4 130lbs mostly side and some back.
She actually likes firm, and I like medium-firm.
We currently have a leesa original for almost 8 years, and it’s just not comfortable anymore, I’ve been talking about replacing it for about a year. I don’t think it does well for people over 200lbs with the wear of the foam.[/quote]
Not surprising your Leesa is wearing out, as most ‘big-box’ mattresses tend to have inexpensive memory foam which can develop ‘ruts’ or divots after a few years of use. With higher BMI, especially as a back sleeper, you want a durable supportive mattress – you may want to review theMattress Specifications You Need To Know and the Mattress Durability Guidelines to become more familiar with what you are looking at in regards to mattress materials and construction. Also theMattress Shopping Tutorial can give you a better idea of how to personally review any bed you are considering. Comfort is subjective and is based on your stats (height, BMI, sleeping position(s) and any health conditions) and your PPP (posture and alignment, pressure relief and personal preferences). You said you did not like the latex mattresses you tried – were they too firm? Or just not comfortable? The best way to choose a mattress, of course, is to try it out in person, of if possible – and this allows you to ‘cross off’ certain styles and materials that you find uncomfortable. I would certainly caution against any low-density inexpensive foams (as your previous mattress) in general for a sleeper of your stats, as it probably will not hold up over time.
The mattresses you mention – the Aireloom Streamline Luxury Firm, the WinkBeds Luxury Firm, like many of the major retailers, are not transparent with the density, construction and even layer thicknesses of the components in their products, making it hard to appraise how it may hold up for a consumers’ size and sleeping style, and to provide ‘comparable’ mattress options; Macys’ version was created to give Aireloom market placement in the mid-range mattress market.
