Hi P,

I have been looking through your website for the past week or so. I have yet to test out mattresses as I also live in a rural area with no great options. After reading through all your info, I believe I am also interested in a pocket coil with latex topper. I have a feeling my husband would prefer a full latex/combo of memory foam but I would like to go test some out. Could you give me some suggestions on places to go to try some of these? We live in Salida, CO (81201) and have family in Colorado Springs, CO. Thanks!

Hi SOUslept2,

The closest list to you is in the Denver / Boulder area in post #2 here but all of these are well over 100 miles away so over the next few days or week or so ... time permitting ... I'll take a look in the Colorado Springs area (and around you as well) to see which stores may be among the better options or possibilities in the area ... or at least are more likely to disclose the materials in their mattresses.

I don't keep a list of specific mattresses that each retailer keeps on their floor (it's constantly changing and would be impossible to keep up with) so you would need to look at their websites or talk to them to find out if they have mattresses on their floor such as a latex / innerspring hybrid that you would be interested in testing.

I'll update this thread as soon as I've had the chance to take a look.

Hi Souslpet2,

I had a chance to take a look at some of the options in the Colorado Springs and Salida area and this list that includes some of the better possibilities in the area (out of about two dozen stores or so). It also includes the brands that each one carries that I would focus on where you have better odds of being able to find out the specifics of what is in their mattresses.

Colorado Springs, CO. area:

denvermattress.furniturerow.com/dmc/ Colorado Springs, Pueblo, CO. Local manufacturer that makes a range of innerspring mattresses and their iChoice model which is a mostly latex mattress that can also be used with either a memory foam or latex topper.

bobsdiscountmattresses.com/mattress-comfort-levels/ Colorado Springs. Therapedic (including gel), Easy Rest.

www.woodleys.com/ Colorado Springs, Centennial. Semaro (Therapedic licensee).

www.americanfurniture.com/ Colorado Springs. Carries Old West. Latex mattress is coming but they don't have it on the floor yet. Said they would call Old West for foam specs. Check foam densities carefully here because they may be on the low side.

www.benfattis.com/ Pueblo, CO. Sherwood (incl. a latex hybrid). Will call Sherwood for foam specs.

www.pueblosleepsolutions.com/Home.html Pueblo, CO. Therapedic (incl gel and latex). Said they know foam densities "inside out".


Salida, CO. area:

www.valleyhomefurnishings.com/Mattresses Salida, Buena Vista, CO. Restonic (didn't talk with them to see which models or if they are willing to provide foam specs for their mattresses so make sure you call first).

For those that don't mind a longer drive then the better options and possibilities I'm aware of in the Denver,CO and Boulder, CO areas are listed in post #2 here .

This is great! Thank you for the leg work. I'll look into them. I did call two places here in Salida and they carry sealy and simmons...

Hello, It has been some time since I have looked for collaboration here. I wish I could say that this is due to a super duper sweet bed, but alas - I am still on the hunt.
I am hoping for some advise in choosing the best fit bed for me. I sleep mainly on my side. Currently I have the Nest Alexander Hybrid and am finding it scoopy in the hip area (lower back ache) and yet my shoulder is hurting. I find this very strange (too soft in hip yet too hard on shoulder) as the foam on top is certainly filling in the void of my waist. I am a fairly shapely woman, 5'9, 170 lbs with a small waist - I carry most weight in my hips and tush. I am within the warranty and the company sent me a couple suggestions based on my concerns:
-Alexander Signature Series - Medium.
-Alexander HyBrid Luxury Contour
With all the research I have read on your site I am personally interested in the Latex Hybrid, firm but a salesperson is steering me away from it because they say the latex would be to dense on my shoulder.
Please, any thoughts on the 3 above mattresses? Specifically which one might be more supportive in the hip are and softer in the shoulder.
Last, I also am wondering if their "zoned" coils might be part of the culprit for my body type. Perhaps the hip area coils are not keeping me in alignment. Thanks for your time and thoughts. Amy

Hi SOUslept2/Amy.

I am within the warranty and the company sent me a couple suggestions based on my concerns: -Alexander Signature Series - Medium. -Alexander HyBrid Luxury Contour
With all the research I have read on your site I am personally interested in the Latex Hybrid, firm but a salesperson is steering me away from it because they say the latex would be to dense on my shoulder. Please, any thoughts on the 3 above mattresses? Specifically which one might be more supportive in the hip are and softer in the shoulder.


I am not sure which of the 3 firmness options you have for your current Alexander Signature mattress, but as your weight distribution is uneven (heavier hips) along with the shoulder pains and lower back pains you are experiencing, I would agree with you that your “symptoms” point to the hips would sinking in a bit too much causing some misalignment and not enough plushness for your needs to cradle the shoulder. It is difficult to compare without knowing exactly what you firmness you currently have, but in general terms you need to look at a system with a primary deep support firm enough to keep your spine in neutral alignment but surface comfort the right thickness to give your shoulders the right amount of pressure point relief (this is where the fine tuning would come into place)

It may be that the firm version of the Next Hybrid Latex you are considering, having the 3” of firm Dunlop Latex in the comfort layer, would not provide enough pressure point relief for your shoulder. This mattress is rated as 3.5 on Nest’s internal firmness scale (not that this means much when it comes to needs and preferences but it is a good place to start from when comparing their mattresses). Based on your description perhaps the Nest Hybrid latex Medium would be a more appropriate choice for your needs. Keeping in mind that you are the only one that can feel what you feel on the mattress I would suggest some local testing to first see if you like the feeling of latex, for some people latex may be too resilient, and only you’ll be able to tell if this is the feel you are looking for or if you like a softer good quality polyfoam instead. Sometimes people with extreme weight differential between shoulders/torso and hips may do better with thinner layers getting progressively firmer, or a slightly firmer upper layer (which will have a more crisp feeling) with a plusher layer under. As you are “sensitive to alignment” due to the heavier hips you would need to find just the right balance between support and comfort and avoid having too much plushness or material in the comfort layers….all is relative the many interconnected variables that are involved.

Last, I also am wondering if their "zoned" coils might be part of the culprit for my body type. Perhaps the hip area coils are not keeping me in alignment. Thanks for your time and thoughts.


Uneven weight distribution will need firmer support layers, but the zoning this unit should not create an issue for someone with a 25 BMI, more often than not the issue would too much / too soft comfort material on top that would compromise the deep support. Again, I can’t predict what type of mattress you might do best with via an online forum, as there are entirely too many personal variables involved, but I would certainly suggest to you to rely on the advice of the manufacturer themselves as they are much more familiar with their own mattress designs and materials than anyone else (including me) and they can use the information you provide them about your body type and sleeping positions, your preferences, your history on different mattresses, and the results of your local testing to make suggestions based on the "averages" of other customers that may be similar to you. The more accurate and detailed the information you provide them the better you will help them to help you make the best possible choices out of the options they have available. As you already know Nest Bedding is one of our Trusted Members of this site and like all the members here I think very highly of and consider them to be among the "best of the best" in the industry.

I hope all the information provided here helps your discussion with Nest bedding in selecting the best option for you.

Thank you Phoenix. I have the medium model and I will reach out to Nest again. I was concerned that they were not suggesting the hybrid latex and thought that I could get an idea here if it may be a solid option for me. I do not like the feel of sinking to far into a bed, but I have not had experience of latex either. I will try to make a trip to the store to test the mattress, it's a bit of a challenge to get there but could be worth the trip. Thank you!

You are welcome!
It’s worthwhile the challenge of a trip in exchange for many good nights of restful sleep :)
Both mattresses that Nest recommended could work well in terms of deep support under your hips and if after some testing you find that you like the feel of latex then the medium version of the hybrid latex might offer just the pressure point relief needed for your shoulder. Either way between your experience with your current mattress, your showroom testing, and Nests guidance you have a good chance to find something that is a good fit.

I'm looking forward to finding out what you end up deciding after your visit.
