Proper Bed Slat spacing for support and ventilation 23 Oct 2021 13:35 #11

Hey Z,

Thanks for your reply :) .

I’m trying to keep the budget at $1000 or below.

I really liked the medium firm feel of the St Caroline when it was new. It’s not a true hybrid, but has a thin layer of memory foam in one of the top layers. I really like the feel of memory foam, but I’m not a fan of the odor it gives off; therefore reluctant to go the hybrid or pure memory foam direction, unless you could recommend one where the odor might not be an issue?


I don't have any particular recommendations for similar Beautyrest memory foam models but thought that checking with local showrooms offering Simmons mattresses may be a good starting point, given this is the mattress brand you prefer. The term Hybrid refers to any combination of poly or latex foams and steel coils in a mattress's construction. These models are quite popular now and you'll hear them referred to often, regardless of which foam is used as a comfort material. Generally speaking, most mattresses are made to order, and a freshly manufactured mattress will have some degree of odor initially that will dissipate quickly after a few days. Different people have different levels of sensitivity to memory foam's odor, and it sounds like you may be one of them. When shopping for a mattress using memory foam, look for a CertiPUR-US certification ; this is a testing standard that tests for harmful substances and VOC's in polyurethane and memory foam materials. Hope this helps, Z ;)

If you want a more detailed explanation on the term hybrid, I describe that in depth here in one of my Beducation posts.
