Need help choosing the right mattress

30 May 2020 17:39 #1 by Karim71
I am looking to purchase a new matress and three choices are on my list:

I am 59 years i do have hip and leg problems. I am looking to purchase a Mid Firm.

Matelas Dauphin, Bonheur and La place have attracted my attention for purchasing a local made mattress :
1) Matelas Dauphin : Albizia
Materials: (the salesman told us) (Photo in attachements)
-Tempered steel pocket-coil, 13 inch density overall
-1 inch 2.5 lbs polyfoam
-2 inches 65 % (Talalay Latex )
-1 inch 2.5 lbs polyfoam
-Wool for temperature and moisture regulation
Only concern that i have and i am not too sure that it has a pillow-top, i did have a pillowtop mattress and with time it started to feel saggy, so i am worried about this one. The price is good 50% sale, final price given is 1400 $ (20 years warranty)

2) Matelas Bonheur : Mat-Tech Must Belmont 2.0 Mid Firm
Also liked this one very much, more expensive than 1), price given 2000$. I am not sure if it is worth paying the extra for the mattress or not.

Materials :
11.5'' density

Fabric and Quilthing :
Visco, fiber, wool
1.25'' foam density 2.2lbs
Comfort Layers :
1.5'' Latex soft 100% natural
1.25'' foam density 2.2lbs

Support :
15 GA pocket coils 8.5'' compressed to 6.5''

Coil Count:

Edge Support:
Reinforced contour foam 2 lbs

3) Matelas Latex Grafit
This one is probably my least favorite of the one given above, but 25 years warranty and the price is the same as option but it includes taxes

Materials :

10 inch high density (total)
Cashmere surface layer
1 "of natural latex infused with graphite
2 " high density Maxair backing foam

Which one to go for, looking more option 1 or 2. Is the option 2 (Mat-Tech Must Belmont) worth the extra price or the 1st option is the way to go ?

Thank you very much!!!
