Hi,
I’m considering customizing a mattress with layers sourced from different businesses.
The purpose is to get the comfort, durability and natural components that I seek at a lower price point.

I’m considering a firm beautyrest mattress, a 2 inch talalau super soft topper and finally a wool topper/pad. I’m trying to mimic some higher end mattresses that are both very supportive but also quite plush on top.

Any advice here would be appreciated.

Thanks

What a coincidence! Less than a year ago, I acquired a Beautyrest bed but found it was just too firm. Tried a memory foam topper, then tried a 3-inch Talalay topper. (The topper is soft, not super soft, since that wasn't an option from the vendor we found.) This combination is still not good for me -- it's probably a bit more complicated for me to find a sleeping system that is comfortable because I have a very bad spine (failed spinal fusion surgery).

I'm a relative newbie here and so I don't know enough to offer useful advice, but I'd consider selling the Beautyrest and possibly the Talalay topper. (Although come to think of it, I believe I can still return the topper.) Anyway, I had already toyed with the idea of having someone move the Beautyrest to our guest room, then starting over again with bed shopping. Or selling the Beautyrest, because maybe it would work well for someone else out there with different preferences. FYI, we are located outside of Washington DC.
