Ordered Cozypure Mattress Today 12 Jan 2017 09:58 #11

Hello Phoenix,
I have been following this post today, 1/27/2017 although the post is dated 07 Sept 2015.
I relate to AWOODS has experienced with pressure points etc., and I would like to try out the layering she has put together. I don't see an update since her last 'check in' on this forum.
Here are my questions;
What is a 6" core layer? Is this the mattress itself?

What kind of 1 1/2 " sculpt latex layer or convoluted layer did she use?

What does the 1 1/2 " sculpted latex layer or the convoluted layer do under the LaNoodle topper?

I'm having to tweak a bit with my Vi Spring Regal Superb mattress which is medium firm.
The Vi Spring Heaven Luxury Supreme topper that I have, is too firm. It's 3" (wool, cotton and horse tail). When I tried it on the showroom floor that we put on top of the Regal Superb mattress made the mattress softer with support in my lower back region.

I have switched off and on with the 3 inch topper and it doesn't relieve the pressure point pains on my hips and lower back. It's like sleeping on two firm mattresses.

I tried Vi Spring Heaven Luxury 2 1/2 inch topper (wool and cotton) and that was firm.

Last of the 3 Vi Spring toppers is the Heaven 2 inch topper ( all wool) was too soft.

Next I tried a 2 inch memory foam topper on top of the mattress and it was too firm.

Next I put a 1 1/2 inch wool topper on top of the memory foam topper and it was snuggly but didn't relieve the pressure point pains on the hip and a nightmare to the lower back.

The next night I put the 1 1/2 inch wool topper on top of my mattress. It was soft and snugly and no relief on the hip pressure point pains and lower back pain.

Here is a temporary fix;
Following night I folded in half a Full size Down Feathered comforter and folded in half a Full size Down Feathered blanket.
I layered the folded comforter on top of the mattress then the folded blanket on top of the comforter.
Then the fitted sheet on top of the folded blanket.
It was soft, snugly but did not resolved the pressure point pains on the hip that shoots to the knee and the lower back. Tossing and turning is a bit painful and awakens me from sleep.

Now I'm back to trying a different layering and would love your suggestion, advise, correction, anything!

Yesterday I ordered the Full size LaNoodle topper in sheer desperation and from the reviews I've read here about the LaNoodle topper. It should arrive in two or less weeks.

I'll put the LaNoodle topper on top of the Vi Spring mattress and hope this solves the pain and aches.

This is where I'm asking you about the 1 1/2 inch sculpt layer under the LaNoodle topper.
Which kind did AWOODS get and how has it helped her since her last 'check in' at this forum.
What other options do I have???

Thank you Phoenix,
I'm longing to get a long night deep sleep.

Hi Maxie,

I relate to AWOODS has experienced with pressure points etc., and I would like to try out the layering she has put together. I don't see an update since her last 'check in' on this forum.

Here is a link to a diagram of a sample configuration of a mattress similar to the on awoods configured. Hers was a custom configuration. All of these layers were latex.

I would advise you to be cautious about using other people’s experiences as a recommendation of something that will work for you, especially when you have your own specific issues with pain radiating down your leg. I would always keep in mind that you are the only one that can feel what you feel on a mattress and I would be cautious about using anyone else's suggestions, experiences or reviews on a specific mattress (either positive or negative) or review sites in general as a reliable source of information or guidance about how you will feel on the same mattress or how suitable or how durable a mattress may be for you. A mattress that would be a perfect choice for one person or even a larger group of people in terms of comfort, firmness, and PPP may be completely unsuitable for someone else to sleep on (even if they are in a similar weight range). In other words, other people's experiences in general won't tell you much if anything about the suitability, quality, durability, or "value" of a mattress for any particular person (see post #13 here ).

Now I'm back to trying a different layering and would love your suggestion, advise, correction, anything!

As we’ve touched on before and as I reiterated above, unfortunately I can only assist with the “how” to choose and not the “what”, as I can’t feel what you feel, I don’t have your specific pain issues, and you’re taking a specific product and customizing it with a topper, introducing a second variable.

With that being said, there are a few things that I gleaned from your comments that might be useful for you. All of the toppers you’ve mentioned consist primarily of natural fibers and while certainly “cozy”, they will tend to be a fit firmer as far as a topper goes. It may be true that something along the lines of a plush latex foam (perhaps like the LaNoodles that you ordered) will offer you better pressure point relief. A solid sheet of latex foam might be easier for you to reposition in, and even the LaNoodles should be a bit easier for you to move around than some of the thicker fiber toppers. Additionally, you described a pain radiating form the lower back down the leg, similar to what patients with sciatica describe. Of course, I’m not an orthopaedist, but there can be instances where if a mattress is too soft it can also cause these back issues, allowing for too much low back sag that can further allow compression of an already bulging or compressed disc. You of course would be the best judge of what is causing your issues, and you seem to think that it is more of a pressure-point issue based upon your previous posts. I only bring this up as a reminder to people reading through this thread that pain like yours can come from “too soft” and “too hard” of a mattress.

I’m looking forward to your comments once you’ve had a chance to use and adjust to your new topper and see if that provides you more relief than your previous choices.
