A few months ago I bought the nectar premier mattress. From a feel standpoint, it was perfect for me. I'm a side sleeper and sleep very hot, and the nectar premier solved a lot of problems I had. It seemed to take a lot of pressure off my shoulders and hips, and slept very cool. It was easily the best sleep I've ever had.

Unfortunately, I had a fiberglass problem. The mattress was leaking fiberglass and it made my room unlivable. It affected me very badly and I was forced to return the mattress and begin searching again.

I tried the Amerisleep AS4 next since they recommend it for side sleepers and don't use fiberglass. However it wasn't a good fit for me. I was having shoulder and back pain problems with it and got way too hot at night.

So now I am searching again and looking for recommendations and advice on how to find the right fit. My dream mattress would basically be exactly the nectar premier without fiberglass. I'm not familiar enough with what goes into these mattresses to find a close match. I cannot go back to nectar after how miserable an experience I had with the fiberglass.

Hi waters10.

Welcome to our Mattress Forum. :)

Sorry to hear of the destroyed mattress and the Purple that is causing motion transfer troubles.

We're considering the following: Novosbed soft, Layla, Amerisleep AS5 and Gravitylux soft. We're prioritizing feel/firmness, so which one would be the softest?


This is quite relative. What feels soft to me may feel medium or firm to you, and vice versa. If you happen to have the foam ILDs/IFDs from these mattresses available, I'd be happy to look at them and tell you which one is the softest based purely on the ILD/IFD of the foam.

After feel/firmness, it's a tie between heat trapping and durability. Any thoughts on this??


Memory and polyfoams sleep hotter than latex (which doesn't sleep hot at all). This is because the cells in poly/memory/gel foams collapse under our body heat throughout the night, causing us to sink more deeply into the foam and therefore trapping more heat between the foam and the body. Latex doesn't perform in this way (it will only 'collapse' to a certain point) and sleeps cooler than other foams. It's also important to consider that sheets, mattress protectors, and other bedding all factor into how hot a mattress feels.

want an all foam mattress now, to minimize motion transfer.


If you want to take it a step further, you can even get a split comfort layer in your mattress. For example, the Organic Latex from Sleep EZ offers split level in their king size mattress which would reduce motion transfer almost to 0. (You can customize by clicking the "build now" and then the "personalize" button to see what that would look like based on weight, sleeping position, etc.)

This is almost like doing a DIY :) and your wife would never have to know, haha. ;)

I'm into the rabbit hole of searching and searching for the right mattress.

First our stats: 5'6" 135 lbs and 5'1" 110 lbs. Both side sleepers. We had a 5" Tuft and Needle mattress. I think it's one of the very first models from them. We found it firm for our needs, but we got used to it. Unfortunately this mattress got destroyed during a Thanksgiving trip by our cats and a defective self cleaning litter box ... We then went to store and got a Purple 3. A hell lot more than I wanted to spend, but we both liked it at the store.

Fast forward to now and my wife is complaining about motion transfer. I move quit a bit and it's bothering her. Something that never bothered her with our tuft and needle. I'm ruling out late and hybrids due to motion transfer concerns. For the amount of money I paid, I feel like the Purple 3 should not be something we can just live with, so I want to return it. With that, I want an all foam mattress now, to minimize motion transfer. We feel the purple 3 is borderline soft enough, but we'd like something even softer. Specially as we get older (40+), we both suffer from shoulder pain.

We're considering the following: Novosbed soft, Layla, Amerisleep AS5 and Gravitylux soft. We're prioritizing feel/firmness, so which one would be the softest? After feel/firmness, it's a tie between heat trapping and durability. Any thoughts on this??

PS: I'm not opposed to DYI, but my wife is very much so against it. I'd need an easy recipe to follow and big argument to be able to convince her!

Hi NikkiTMU,

Thanks for the reply and sorry for the late response. I thought I would get an email when there was a reply but apparently I was mistaken.
I am currently sleeping on an Amerisleep as5.
The comfort layer should be memory foam.
I toss and turn so I'm not sure if that means I'm a combo sleeper.
I did see that I was not the only one with the issue but have not found any solutions throughout the threads.
There shouldn't be any deal breakers but I would probably prefer less chemical components/off-gassing.
There shouldn't be any other requirements other than softness.

Thank you!

Hello! I am new to this forum after lurking for some time. I wanted to reach out because I’ve been discouraged after reading that most mattress review sites have been paid for reviews. I’m hoping y’all can help me out!

I think I’ve narrowed down my search to a hybrid, although I’m undecided on foam vs latex. My boyfriend and I tend to sleep hot, but I also suffer from fibromyalgia so I tend to get back/neck soreness and I am sensitive to pressure points. I was thinking about a medium to medium-soft firmness, because I am a combination side/back sleeper (mainly side).

Hybrids interested me because of their properties for less heat retention, better durability, and a mix of softness and support. I’ve heard good things about mattresses with Leggett & Platt Quantum coils. I’ve personally never slept on a latex mattress before, but I’m curious about soft Talalay. I don’t want to sink entirely into my mattress, but also don’t want float completely on top of it.

So far I’ve been considering:
Nest ASH - although I heard a Reddit rumor that they quietly stopped using Quantum coils
Winkbed Hybrid
Ghostbed Flex or Luxe - I know the luxe isn’t a hybrid but it sounded interesting, as long as the foam is a high enough density
Flexus Quadraflex Hybrid- Soft Talalay possibly
Nolah Evolution Hybrid 15
Amerisleep AS3 H

I am also open to other suggestions based on my sleeping requirements! I’m looking for a king and have a budget around $1700. I’m trying to take advantage of the Labor Day sales.

Greetings...
I have been on my mattress search for 3 frustrating years. I just can't seem to find the right bed. I feel like Goldilocks. I prefer a soft bed as I'm a side sleeper that occasionally rolls onto my back. On most beds I wake up with a sore lower back that usually goes away after about 5 minutes of being out of bed. The firmer the bed the sorer my back feels, softness seems to help but that is not a guarantee. I'm running out of beds to try. A little info about me, I'm 5'9" with a muscular build from years of weightlifting but have also accumulated a layer of fat over those muscles from sitting in front of the TV too much. I'm ~225 lbs and 63 years old. My wife is 5'4" and about 120 and can sleep on anything.
Here's what I've tried out so far, all tried for at least 30 days and returned during the comfort trial.
Sleep on Latex - too firm
Brooklyn Beds Signature Hybrid - okay but sore back
Casper - too firm
Nolah - too firm
Nest Alexander Signature Hybrid Plush - almost a keeper. Very comfortable but gave me some back soreness
Layla - comfortable but sore back
Wink Beds - too firm
Saatva Plush Soft - too firm
Helix Sunset - uncomfortable
Propel - uncomfortable
Bear - uncomfortable
Luma - very comfortable but sore back
Amerisleep AS5h - uncomfortable
SleepEZ Latex - uncomfortable
Rubix by Brooklyn Beds - soft but sore back
Layla Hybrid - somewhat soft but sore back
Nolah Hybrid Evolution (current bed) - could be softer but sore back is nearly gone

The Nolah Evolution almost checks all the boxes but it is not quite soft enough. I bought a 2" Dunlop soft (20 ild) topper but that doesn't make me any more comfortable. Do you think a soft Talalay topper might make a difference? Maybe 3" thick? Or maybe something other than a latex topper? I appreciate any insight anyone can offer. Thanks!

I'm looking for a fiberglass and silica free queen mattress also. I've looked at everything Amerisleep, Idle Sleep, Tuft & Needle, Sweetnight, Casper, Wayfair so many others I won't mention them all. I actually ordered an Idle Sleep Gel Foam but then saw they have an "F" rating at the BBB. So many of these mattress companies have terrible BBB reviews. Tuft & Needle has a good rating and their T&N original is free from fiberglass but it's only 10". I need 12". This is for my husband who is 6'3" and weights around 230. Some of those mentioned are fiberglass and silica free but I can't spent $1000+. Are there any GOOD memory foam mattresses that are clean and won't cost my firstborn child??

I also searched the forum to see if any other forum subscribers had shared positive Portland area experiences, and Parkland seemed to be the common denominator but there was also some chatter that it potentially was purchased by Bedmart.

Google led me to Portland Mattress Makers and Stumptown Mattress, but neither lists the foam densities of their mattresses and I have no personal knowledge of their transparency, etc. but it may not hurt to call and see what kind of information you can get out of them if your preference is to stay local.

NikkiTMU


Thanks for the reply! Yes it seems there's a number of local manufacturers (surprising amount really) but i haven't found much info.

Yes Parklane got bought out and I'm not quite sure if the current products are in any way related to the original line.

Then there's Stumptown like you mentioned. Portland Mattress Makers is a different Portland :lol: but there is also Mulligan Mattress, Cloud Natural, Bedtime Mattress, and 45th Street Bedding for local Latex options. There's "Leisure Rest" made locally by Mattress Warehouse. There was Tualatin Sleep Products who got bought out by Southerland. Sound Sleep Products seems to make a few different lines which is a bit confusing. I also found Amerisleep as another local bed in a box storefront. There's also Restonic, Sleep EZ, abs what seems to be a collection of quite a few others as i continue to look into it. The confusing part is where to start, especially since most don't tend to list actual specs by default.

It seems like Mattress Lot offers a good variety of memory, latex, and hybrids, so I'll probably start there to at least figure out what will work for us.

Thanks for replying! We are sleeping on a queen memory foam bed that we bought in 2011 for $350 from foammattressdiscounts.com, The description was "Queen Size 5lb Density 8 Inch Memory Foam Mattress".

As for the price question, I asked because I was trying to understand what moving up from the Brooklyn Signature Soft to the Brooklyn Aurora Soft, Brooklyn Spartan Soft, or Brooklyn Sedona or Layla Hybrid soft would get me, or even other more expensive brands such as Amerisleep AS3/AS4/AS5, Casper Nova Hybrid, Ghostbed Luxe, Helix Sunset, Molecule 2, Muse, Nest Bedding Alexander, PlushBeds Botanical Bliss, Puffy Lux, Saatva Classic, Tuft & Needle Hybrid, Winkbed/Winkbed GravityLux/Winkbed EcoCloud.

I am going to Sleepare in Tysons Corner, VA tomorrow to try a bunch of beds.

Hey CharlesR7,

Welcome to The Mattress Underground :) ! Thanks for your question.

I am an average sized man (5'11" 160 lb) and sleep combo side and back. I'm currently on a purple hybrid (2" one) but it is causing me a lot of problems with my lumbar. Despite this one often reviewed as "too firm" my butt seems to sink down way too low on my back, while my lower and upper back barely do at all. I also trialed an Amerisleep AS3 but that was giving me problems higher in the back, probably from being too soft. My wife is on an AS2 and that is clearly too hard for me to side sleep.


Thanks for including your personal stats for providing insights on your sleep preferences, Charles. I'm sorry to learn of the lumbar issues you had with your Purple Hybrid, as well as higher back discomfort from the Amerisleep AS3. Good to know that your wife is sleeping well on an AS2 and wish that would work out for you both; however to your point, firmer mattresses can be difficult for the side sleeping position of your combo side and back preferences.

I went over to Urban Mattress and sat on everything, expecting to like the memory foam or the latex hybrids. Surprisingly I like the essential collection which is HR cold foam. Specifically the silver lake firm which has the below construction

Stretch-knit fiber over 2 layers of 1.5 inch Certi-pur 3 lb HR Cold Foam

2 inches of Certi-pur 3 lb HR Cold Foam

Firm: 884 6 inch 14.5 gauge pocketed coil with firm edge

This bed felt very supportive to me om my back with limited store time, and soft on my shoulder on my side.

But I am paranoid now of going too soft after my last mattress. Is 5 inches of cold HR foam too much? And will these materials be quality and lasting?


Congrats on your new mattress shopping journey :) ! Thanks for providing spec details on the Silver Lake/ firm model. I took a peek at Urban Mattress's web site to see what other information may be there and saw that this model is recommended for back and side sleepers. Generally speaking, HR/ High Resiliency polyfoam is considered the highest grade of polyfoam and weighs in at 2.5 lbs per cu. ft. or more. A 3 lb density should provide a durable comfort feel, you would want to verify that its support factor is 2.4 or higher, an important part of why an HR polyfoam has the qualities it does, as it is made with a different chemical formula and has a different cell structure than that of HD or conventional polyfoams. I used Urban Mattress's web chat to ask that question, but the chatbot responded that someone would be with me later (I did include an email address and will update you when someone replies). Based on the above specs, the Silver Lake/ Firm could be a good fit for you in terms of a firmer feel and durability, plus they guarantee a no sag/ 15 year replacement option, 100 night sleep trial, and one comfort exchange after a 30 day period. Have you tried any other models recently? Looking forward to hearing your updates and thanks.

Hey Octonion,

Thanks for your reply and updates :) .

I am not sure why it is not clear to you from what I have written. I simply tried to explain the process of my mattress search and how I ended up concluding that a hybrid mattress of foam + coil is the best combination for a mattress. I explained the issues that I have experienced in using other mattresses.
Also it is totally unclear where you got the idea that I have already purchased the information.


Thank you for explaining your mattress research process, Octonion. My apologies for not following your statement in your previous post : "So I need to go for a hybrid: foam + coil and so I ended up AmeriSleep AS2 Hybrid.". Consumers on the forum often use the expressions "ended up" in the same way as "having bought" or "went with" when casually saying that they purchased a particular mattress.

So I will further simplify my post for you:

1) I have NOT purchased Amerisleep mattress AS2 Hybrid. I am still looking to purchase a mattress and this AS2 Hybrid is at the top of my list.


Congrats on your new mattress shopping journey :) ! From Amerisleep's site, the AS2 Hybrid cutaway image depicts a proprietary gel memory foam comfort layer, a proprietary 5-zoned transition layer over a pocket coil array with perimeter edge support. The mattress comes in one firmness: medium firm. As they do not share any component specifications, you would want to consult with them regarding those details for assurance they would meet appropriate durability guidelines .

2) I am looking for any feedback on the AS2 Hybrid mattress from people who have experienced or have more information about it.


You may have already found this Phoenix post regarding the Amerisleep AS2 (not Hybrid model) ; I included it here as there are many helpful links for your consideration.

3) If there is a similar mattress build from any TMU trusted member list, please let me know.
Thanks!


These TMU trusted members offer similar memory foam hybrid mattresses, they have been linked to their product pages for your review:


Hopefully, you will find some of the links useful. Any of these trusted members would be happy to help you with questions regarding which of their hybrid mattresses may be a close match to the AS2 Hybrid, should you be interested in their products. Here is a checklist of questions that you may find helpful when researching your mattress purchase. With any manufacturer/ retailer that you are considering otherwise, you would want to be sure that their foams are made in the USA and are CertiPUR-US Certified, which means they've been tested by a credible 3rd party for any known harmful chemicals. Hope these thought starters are a bit more helpful and good luck with your mattress shopping journey :) .

Thanks,
Sensei

Hey Octonion,

Welcome back to the forum :) . Thanks for your question.

Could you please let me know is there any updated information/feedback on Amerisleep mattress quality? Any issues or concerns with this now? Searching through the forum, there is one here: www.themattressunderground.com/mattress-forum/index/12548-mattress-comfort-layers-memory-foam?start=60 , but it does not say anything bad about Amerisleep.


Perhaps you could be a bit more specific as to what concerns you have, Octonion. As Amerisleep has no relationship with the TMU, I have no direct knowledge of "updated information/ feedback" on their quality. I appreciate that you did use the site search function as many questions can be easily answered with that resource.

...Please let me know if there is any weak links in AS2 Hybrid build. If there is a similar feeling mattress that has higher quality components, please let me know as well
…So I need to go for a hybrid: foam + coil and so I ended up AmeriSleep AS2 Hybrid….
...I looked into the Trusted Members Directory for Foam + Coil Hybrid to match with AmeriSleep AS2 Hybrid. But I couldn't find one that has this Foam + Coil Hybrid combo. If I missed any good alternative to AS2 Hybrid, please let me know.


The above quotes I pulled together as a summary for some questions for you: if you liked the AmeriSleep AS2 Hybrid in the showroom and ended up getting it, how has it been working for you so far? As you have already purchased the mattress, is there a particular reason you are asking about "weak links"?

Thanks,
Sensei

I have pain in the lower back using my current mattress (Avocado green mattress): The pain is in the lower back and similar to the one shown in this picture: www.themattressunderground.com/mattress-forum/index/21045-keep-waking-up-with-my-lower-back-twisted#71666

Avocado green mattress does not conform to the body when laying on my back. There is no support to the lower back at all. The coils are a disaster. I only get support if I move to the edge of the mattress (quantum edge support, which means no support elsewhere unfortunately). Otherwise in the middle of the mattress, my hip and bum sink (I am 5ft 11", 195lbs). I have more weight in my tummy and bum. What a disappointment with Avocado mattress, which I thought is going to solve all my mattress problems.
Avocado green mattress has quality control issues and the products they ship does not match with their website postings nor with the one available in the online showroom in Austin: www.oursleepguide.com/austin-texas-mattress-showroom/

I am in Austin TX and I finally tested Casper Original Hybrid which was ok. Wave Hybrid and Nova Hybrid did not offer me enough support for the lower back -- on these beds when lying flat, I had to lift and draw my legs inward to get the support on the lower back.
I tested Amerisleep AS2 Hybrid and it provided the lower back support when lying flat and also felt comfortable when lying on the side. amerisleep.com/mattresses-comparison/
King AS2 Hybrid costs $1399.
Please let me know if there is any weak links in AS2 Hybrid build. If there is a similar feeling mattress that has higher quality components, please let me know as well.

After Avocado Green mattress experience, I gave up on Latex Hybrid mattress. Latex does not conform to the body and does not provide the support/pressure relief on the lower back. I tested Obasan zoned all latex mattress which did provide all the support I needed and felt comfortable, but it is very expensive (> $5K) and they do not have any return policy. Obasan have 8- and 6- zoned latex pieces, which I think is the only way to get latex conform to body contours and get support/pressure relief. Just choosing latex layers simply based on ILD from top to bottom is not going to give much support or prevent forming pressure points due to arching of lower back.

So foam of some type (memory foam, poly foam, custom foams from different companies etc) is the way to get body conturing and support. But 100% foam would be too hot when sleeping for 8 hours.
So I need to go for a hybrid: foam + coil and so I ended up AmeriSleep AS2 Hybrid. The combo of Foam + Latex Hybrid would still be warmer than Foam + Coil. So I did not look into Foam + Late Hybrid.

Before buying Avocado Green mattress few months back, I also found Brooklyn Aurora Hybrid and Helix Midnight to be comfortable as well -- but I need to try that again this week to see if it would work.
There are already too many choices to look into and then finally buy one that provides the needed comfort and restful sleep and that does not contain any weak link/low quality materials.

I looked into the Trusted Members Directory for Foam + Coil Hybrid to match with AmeriSleep AS2 Hybrid. But I couldn't find one that has this Foam + Coil Hybrid combo. If I missed any good alternative to AS2 Hybrid, please let me know.
Thanks very much.
