Default Mattress advice

I have had the same mattress for almost 20 years and I think it’s time for a replacement! I have never had anything other than a traditional coil type mattress. Today it seems there are so many new types of mattresses on the market I am so confused and overwhelmed! I tend to prefer a firmer mattress and I sleep either on my back or sometimes on my stomach!

Additionally I would prefer to spend PSA 1 red cobb T206 money...As opposed to PSA 2 goudey Ruth money.

For some reason I trust you guys’s advice more than my friends and family!!!

Any help is appreciated!!

I researched this extensively before buying. Natural latex is a great combination of comfort and support. I enthusiastically recommend a company called SleepEZ, which is who I bought from. Give them a call and they will advise you. Speak with Rodger.

I sold mattresses and furniture for many years. Go with memory foam. They reduce pressure points that are produced from a typical inner spring mattress. You don't have to spend a lot of money. Memory foam is memory foam, don't pay extra money for the name brand. Sure, you can get it in different densities, ect., but it's really all about the same.

From my research, memory foam is much less durable than latex.

Absolutely correct. Latex is known for durability. Memory foam is known for comfort.

The one piece of advice I gave to every customer is to buy something that's comfortable to you that's in your price range. Unfortunately, people listen to advice of others and sometimes get something they're not happy with. What's comfortable to one might not be comfortable to another.

Great Minds think alike...I'm due for a new one this year. Glad to hear all the advise before I venture out to shop.

Thanks
