Advice for ultimate hybrid

19 Feb 2020 12:02 #1 by jigheadworm
I am 5'11 190 and my spouse is 6' 2 230 what topper level do you recommend. We are both side and back sleepers.Would it be better to go all latex.We are currently on a serta memory foam that is 6 yrs old.We both want something with a little more bounce to it.

I would definitely go with a latex topper but the density will depend a bit on feel and preference. Your spouse's BMI is definitely higher than yours (I'm 6'2, 250 lbs) so that person's going to need something stiffer in order to be comfortable. You can probably get away with a medium (around 30 ILD) for both but I would suggest buying a split version since you may need to tune each side with different densities to really get the feel you want when sleeping.

If you are referring to our Ultimate Hybrid model I would choose the Medium Talalay based on your info. Dunlop might be too firm when on your side.

Thanks probably order one in the next day or two. Is there any options you can do on the ultimate hybrid such as add another layer of latex.
