Looking for a Latex over coil mattress for a 240 lb 5'5" with no zoning

Hi there!
Looking for a Latex over coil hybrid mattress for a 240 lb 5'5" primarily side sleeper with no zoning except for the edges that will ship to Alaska. Would prefer it to not be over 13" so it will fit the foundation we have. Have issues with shoulder and hip pain. Any suggestions?

Hi Sandysoup,

Thanks for reaching out to Luma Sleep! Your requirements for a latex hybrid mattress suitable for a person with a BMI nearly 40 is a real challenge. There are very few, if any, latex hybrid products being sold on the market that will have a non-zoned pocketed coil system that can perform to provide the support and spinal alignment you will need, in combination with latex. Luma Sleep does not carry such a product.
There are 2 alternatives you may want to explore. Each does not meet your requirements exactly but may provide you a mattress that can allow you the great night's sleep you deserve. The first is Big Fig. There is no latex in their product that we can see, but they have engineered mattress systems specifically designed for high BMI individuals. The other alternative is to see if one of the trusted members on this site that custom build and/or supply DIY component support may be able to help you. Here's a link to that list -
Luma Sleep has been successful in assisting high BMI folks with our All Latex Slumber Systems, but there are both a design and price differences that likely do not meet your specific requirements.
Hope these suggestions above are what you are looking for.
