Advise needed for Latex Mattress 26 Sep 2014 01:04 #1

I live in Huntsville, AL and cannot find any store locally that carry latex mattresses. My wife and I have visited every store we can find but the closest we got was a mattress with "some latex". I have researched pretty extensively and know that we want our next mattress purchase to be 3+3+3 layers of latex.

My question is this: I am 5'8 and weigh 190 lbs. I am both a side sleeper and a back sleeper. I have pretty wide shoulders, and have several surgeries that have left me with lots of joint pain. In your opinion, would I likely have more benefit from a softer top layer or a more firm layer?

We will have a Leggitt and Plat adjustable bed - split king so we will use two different mattresses. My wife is easier to accommodate but I am a little unsure of what layers will meet my needs. I appreciate any input. Thanks.

Hi Pendergrass,

My question is this: I am 5'8 and weigh 190 lbs. I am both a side sleeper and a back sleeper. I have pretty wide shoulders, and have several surgeries that have left me with lots of joint pain. In your opinion, would I likely have more benefit from a softer top layer or a more firm layer?


There are too many unknowns, variables, and personal preferences involved for anyone to know with any certainty based on specs (either yours or a mattress) or "theory at a distance" without a reference point of mattresses you have tested (see mattress firmness/comfort levels in post #2 here ) and it would also depend on the other layers and components of the mattress as well, but If I had to guess I would guess somewhat softer than firmer.

The better options and possibilities I'm aware of in the Huntsville area are listed in post #2 here .
