Hello there! Last year I used TMU to find a mattress for myself. I tried several different ones and landed on the SleepEZ flippable hybrid. I have some back problems and have been satisfied with the mattress so far. It's great to be able to flip it when needed. My roommate is moving out in a few weeks and I am wanting to get a queen mattress for the guest room. I've read the forums... and reread the forums... and can't make any headway. I kind of want to have something different but of equal quality, so if I ever want to switch it up I'm content with either mattress. I get 30% off at Ghostbed but am not sure that's what I'm wanting. It will be used occasionally, but I need something sturdy that won't sag even with higher weight ranges. Open to anything, I just don't have much of a direction. I'd like to keep price around $1,000 or so, but that's a rough estimate. Thanks for any suggestions!

Hi burgernation, and welcome (back) to The Mattress Underground :)

Hello there! Last year I used TMU to find a mattress for myself. I tried several different ones and landed on the SleepEZ flippable hybrid. I have some back problems and have been satisfied with the mattress so far. It's great to be able to flip it when needed

Glad to hear you have enjoyed your SleepEZ Select Hybrid mattress. This bed has 5” of 100% latex and a pocket coil 8” base with edge support. As you have found, the ability to flip it over is beneficial as it distributes the wear on the mattress more evenly, gives the side at the bottom a chance to "rest" and prevents it from breaking down in the areas of most wear that tends to cause impressions or ‘divots’, especially for higher weight ranges sleepers. Latex is also a very durable material and should last for years. You’ve probably seen the mattress shopping guidelines and the accompanying mattress durability guidelines here .

As you have some back problems - and want the guest room mattress to be both comfortable for you when you want to ‘switch it up’, but also be suitable for (occasional) higher-weight sleepers, I'd stick to a mattress similar to SleepEZ that you verified that works for you. You can have a quick look at the trusted members as you'll pay less for better quality materials than you would in the mainstream industry, which uses a great deal of their budget for marketing instead of product quality. Successful mattress shopping comes down to selections based on quality from companies that are fully disclosing the materials and components used in their mattresses.

GhostBed is a good choice and while it is a little higher than your budget, the GhostBed Natural seems to meet all your other criteria. It has a Dunlop base layer and Talalay comfort layer with pocketed coils core with edge support.
In the same vein, the Trusted member Nest Bedding has a Latex Hybrid similar in construction to yours The Owl Latex Hybrid . This one is a little higher budget range-wise, but you may want to consider it for the same reasons.
Arizona Premium Mattress Company has the Queen Eco Sleep Hybrid mattress which is within your budget, and the Latex Mattress Factory has the Luxerion Hybrid mattress which is also within your price range. Since it’s for a guest room you also may want to consider a bed made with HD Polyfoam as a density of 1.8lbs/cuft or higher for normal weight, or 2 lbs/cuft for higher weight would be durable while reducing the price to fit your budget. Typically a guest room mattress is used occasionally, so between that and choosing a bed with a latex comfort layer, such a mattress should last long even if used by higher weight range individuals.

Any mattress you choose is, of course a personal choice specific to you and your PPP(Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences). While I can’t say if any particular mattress would suit your personal needs and preferences we can make comments on any potential mattress you are looking into.

I hope that gives you a few good ideas to move your search forward.

Basilio,

Thank you for such a thorough response with so many recommendations! Would any of the ones you suggested be a little better for low back pain and side sleeping? I switch between stomach, back, and side and sometimes wake up with pressure points. I forgot to mention this in my main post, but remembered after tossing and turning a bit last night.

Thanks!

Based on what you've recommended so far, I am looking at the Nest Owl. The lifetime exchange layer looks awesome and might be worth the extra money to me.

Hi burgernation

I have consolidated your 3 posts in one for ease of reading.

Would any of the ones you suggested be a little better for low back pain and side sleeping? I switch between stomach, back, and side and sometimes wake up with pressure points. I forgot to mention this in my main post, but remembered after tossing and turning a bit last night

Since you are a ‘combo’ sleeper (meaning you alternate between sleeping on your side, stomach and back) a latex hybrid mattress will provide durability, comfort and support. Side sleepers need a mattress that has enough pliability or ‘give’, to reduce pressure on the hip and joints but will not break down and sag over time which would compromise spinal alignment and would exacerbate back and joint pain. Either of the mattresses mentioned before can work well, depending on your needs and personal preferences and your level of tolerance to being slightly misaligned once you switch positions. I’d say focus on the position that you sleep in most of the time and ensure that you get the best alignment for that position, then you can fine tune it for the other positions if needed. But in terms of which of the mattress mentioned before works best for you, it would be impossible for me to know for sure. There is some fairly extensive general information in the mattresses section of the site (particularly in the sections about sleeping style, preferences, and statistics along with putting the layers together and the page on tips and tricks here ) that can give you some general concepts,

Based on what you've recommended so far, I am looking at the Nest Owl. The lifetime exchange layer looks awesome and might be worth the extra money to me.

Good choice and thinking, the Nest Owl is similar to your SleepEz mattress; The Owl has 3 comfort options and their exchange policy allows you to make sure you tune in on the correct comfort for you. Their 365-night trial period is very generous and most valuable especially for someone with a lower back pains. Remember that it can take several weeks for you to adjust to the new mattress and for the new mattress to you as even with latex mattresses may take a bit of time to ‘break it in’.
.
Hope this helps,
