WHERE CAN I FIND AN INNERSPRING MATTRESS LIKE THEY MADE 20 YEARS AGO?
I just spent the last several hours reading the various articles the most recent of which is entitled "mattress support cores-innersprings". In the paragraph just below the video "beducation", I'm not clear what "them" is referring to in the last sentence "all other factors being equal, this gives "them" greater firmness".
Does "them" mean the pocket coils?
I'm in a lot of pain and unfortunately am limited in my ability to go out mattress shopping and also have a lot of trouble with the computer. I understand no one can tell me exactly what to buy but if someone could even tell me what on line website would be the most appropriate given the limited information I am able to provide I would be so grateful. Again, I live in NY weigh 100 lbs and sleep on my side.
If it's at all helpful, the one I bought that is way too soft and in less than a year has a dent where I sleep was called Simmons Beautyrest Recharge Hartfield 11.5" Luxury Firm Mattress
I am sorry you are having a difficult time finding the right mattress. First let me explain what this paragraph is referring to:
Bonnell, continuous coils, and offset coils are also joined together with a tightly coiled thinner wire called a helical and different types and designs of these can also make a big difference in how each individual coil is affected its neighbors and the firmness and conforming ability of an innerspring. Pocket coils are kept together through the use of fabric "pockets" which are joined together (rather than the coils themselves being joined) or in the case of higher quality versions by "hand tying" each coil to other coils near it. These pocketed or hand tied coils have more independent movement which gives Pocket coils their greater "shape conforming" ability while the other 3 types act more together in a group with other coils because of the helical connections. All other factors being equal, this gives them greater firmness.
The them they are referring to is the Bonnell, continuous coils, and offset coils, not the "pocketed coils". These type of mattresses would be firmer, similar to what you once purchased.
This link here is a list of our trusted members that sell innerspring and hybrid mattresses.
Here are a few links of four companies that are in the northeast USA and you can check out their products they can most likely make/sell what you need.
Good luck and thanks for posting.

I've done a ton of research and lurked quite a while, so I feel prepared to discuss this with someone of your knowledge.
After moving out and having to leave my 20 year old Simmons beautyrest, I bought a Sealy posturepedic plus that developed a massive Hump in the middle and sagged quite a bit after 2/3 years.
We purchased a contour rhapsody luxe tempur pedic off eBay, but unfortunately it's leaving me with hip, back, and shoulder pain, and I'm waking up drenched in sweat. (With my ac on 65)
So I want to move back to an innerspring mattress and I'm between a few options.
I'm in northern NJ, and have settled on buying from either Shovlin, Charles P Rogers, or nobull In cherry hill.
Here are the beds I'm looking at
The Trizone or Milan from Shovlin
This one I'm concerned may sag with foam layers and the inability to flip.
The Charles P Rogers bed seems quality as well, but doesn't let you flip it.
The bed has 0 foam in it.
Have yet to go to shovlin or no bull tho
Likely this will be an innerspring mattress with cotton and no or a small amount of foam.
Latex proved to be a problem as I had to sell my all organic latex bed after 3 years as I became sensitive to it.
I also tried one memory foam mattress topper in a store and had a reaction and even though this was just one sample, I would prefer little or no memory foam.
Also no fire retardants, no exotics like Aloe, no anti-bacterial chemicals.
