Hello,

I have spent far too long sifting through guides and websites and am really hoping someone can give me 3-5 suggestions of mattresses that meet the following criteria:

1. My wife an I are both lightweight (~105lbs and ~125lbs). We both prefer a soft feeling mattress.
2. Our bed has curved, very flexible slats, which have quite a lot of "give" to them. I have been told that a pure foam/latex mattress will tend to sag with this setup, and that it would be better to go with a hybrid mattress. Not sure if that's true, but certainly our current pure latex mattress feels like it's sagging (that may also be because it's nearly 10 years old).
3. The bed has a weight limit of 550lbs. Ideally I would not want to max that out, so the mattress should not weigh more than ~ 220lbs (king size).
4. I would really like this to cost less than $2000.

Thank you very much for any suggestions! Thank you thank you!

Hi 8cp1.

We can't tell you what to buy, but we can tell you how to buy it :) Remember, any bed is unique to the sleepers using it, based on their stats(height, BMI, sleeping position(s) and any underlying health conditions, and their PPP(posture and alignment, pressure relief and personal preferences. You may want to take a look at the the Mattress Specifications You Need To Know and the the Mattress Durability Guidelines to see how to examine specific components, and how different materials hold up over time.

Our bed has curved, very flexible slats, which have quite a lot of "give" to them. I have been told that a pure foam/latex mattress will tend to sag with this setup, and that it would be better to go with a hybrid mattress. Not sure if that's true, but certainly our current pure latex mattress feels like it's sagging (that may also be because it's nearly 10 years old).


If the space between slats is a little too wide, latex does have the tendency to sink into the spaces and give a saggy feel. A hybrid will likely give you a better experience.

You may wish to start with looking at SleepEZ , Nest Bedding and Arizona Premium as well as Flexus .

I hope this helps you get started.
