I can't figure out how to ask a question so I will ask it here. I am going out of my mind picking a mattress. I am 130 lbs. and a stomach and side sleeper. My husband is 170 lbs and can sleep any way. We currently have an old coil mattress with 4 inches of memory foam toppers and I wake up in pain every day..neck, hip and back. He usually has pain too but blames it on a motorcycle accident he had. I really think the mattress makes it worse. I definitely need great edge support as I sleep on the edge so I am looking for a hybrid. I keep hearing that the department store mattresses are low quality and don't last. I also keep hearing how latex hybrid is the way to go. I sleep super hot so maybe so, but I am not sure how latex will feel for providing support. I guess I got used to the mattress contouring to my body and not sure if latex does that? I also need motion isolation as I have restless leg syndrome. There is nowhere to go near me (zip 17025) that I know of to try a latex hybrid. I am horrible with decisions and afraid to try the online stores, but when I went to Mattress Firm, they were pushy and expensive. I am looking to spend no more than $1200. I need help please!

Thank you for reaching out and I understand your frustrations as you are probably getting bombarded from all different directions. A latex hybrid like our Ultimate Hybrid is a great way to go. It not only has a firmer edge but also firmer in the middle to help prevent dipping. The pocket coil design helps isolate motion and the latex layer offers air flow, pressure relief and durability. So with a latex hybrid such as this you do get the best of both the spring and foam worlds all in one. If motion isolation is top priority then you should look into getting an all latex mattress.

Although not the cheapest way to go if you want to get a feel for both latex hybrid and all latex mattress try searching for a Savvy Rest dealer in your area. I believe there are a few within 30-35 miles of your zip code. You can search them at the Savvy Rest website. Note the model and firmness you like and then reach out to one of us factory direct manufacturers here on this site for a similar construction and a huge savings.

I sent an email through your mattresses.net website seeking some more advice but haven't gotten a response yet. In my research I am finding that latex does not offer as good motion isolation and now I am not sure if it is the way to go. I barely get more than 3 hrs sleep a night. Im sure having a crappy coil mattress with 4 inches of an added memory foam (store bought) pad isn't helping. We came from a king all memory foam to that in Queen and now I also feel every movement he makes so I'm Sleeping on the edge of the bed, I have restless leg syndrome, feel him moving, sleep hot, toss & turn all night long and am uncomfortable ..all that equals very little sleep. I'm miserable. To make matters worse I am bad at decisions. So I get frustrated trying to figure all of this out. I wish I could go back to a King bed as well but it took up our entire room. I can't even figure out what firmness to get because I go to sleep on stomach but will end up on my side a lot. I don't like the idea of buying online because I don't want to have to pay to ship back but store mattresses just seem like poor material and more money. I have been searching for about 6 months and am still no closer. Help!

I don't even know when my wife get's in and out of bed so I disagree about the motion isolation properties of latex. I think you need to take a look at both your foundation or box spring along with the bed frame because both of those could cause major issues with motion and thus transfer through to the mattress, even latex.

I was just going by what I have read. We have a bed that has wooden slats and then currently have a wood box spring under the coil mattress. I'm sure it is typical to feel movement in a spring mattress like we have. I'm glad to hear that latex is not like that. Is it the same with a latex hybrid? We just bought our bedroom set so changing that is not an option. Is a wooden boxspring ok? We also have a metal one (with a fabric cover) that we can use. We definitely need a box spring with the headboard we have unless the mattress is super thick.

There are wood foundations that look like a box spring but no springs, that is what we recommend for latex mattresses. Then there are actual metal box springs which will only add to the motion of any mattress. Then you have wood slat platform beds which do the same thing as our wood foundation, no jiggle. We have our latex mattress on an adjustable bed which is also like a solid base with no motion other than the normal head up and feet up positions.

Going by the info I provided (Im 130 lb, hubby 170, I start by sleeping on my stomach and end up on my side at times.
May husband starts on his back and ends up on side or stomach when i yell at him to roll over because he snores,
I have restless legs and he can feel me move as well as i feel every move he makes, I wake up with back, neck & hip pain) what firmness level do you recommend?

I previously suggested visiting the Savvy Rest dealer to get a feel for latex and what firmness you like. Were you able to do that and if so what was your experience?

No, we had somewhat of a big snowstorm here and unable to get anywhere. I'd have to talk my husband into it. He thinks I'm nuts looking so much into a mattress. I guess when he can sleep on anything it doesn't matter. The closest Savvy Rest dealer is about 45 min. away from us. I wish there was a store like within 15 min. that sold latex. Be easier to get there with him

But it could eliminate the chance of doing a comfort exchange and save money in the long run.
