My husband and I are in the market for a new mattress.
Our current one was a cheap one, bought a few years ago and it has needed to be replaced for some time.
It is a Serta Perfect Sleeper Pillow top mattress. It sinks in on both of our sides, with a hump in the middle.
We are a plus size couple now. I am 5’3” and 200 lbs. My husband is 5’10 and 320 lbs.
I’m a side sleeper and he is a back sleep due to having to use a CPAP machine.
He also has some back issues from previously being in the military and his weight doesn’t help it any. He doesn’t sleep in the bed anymore because he hurts so much when he wakes up the next day and throughout the day.
I lean more towards a firmer feel in a mattress. He just wants to be able to sleep in the bed again so he isn’t sure what he wants or needs. Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Heather
Good Morning Heather,
A man that size puts a hurting on most upholstered products.
Since you prefer something on the firmer side, I have a solution that will work well for both of you….and hold up extremely well under his weight.
The Natura of Canada Greenspring Mattress in Firm.

This mattress is quite firm, so you’ll want to add a mattress topper to give it enough comfort for you.
The topper will also absorb some of his body weight, which will add to the longevity of the mattress.
This sleep system combination has always worked well for very large people.
The best Mattress Topper for your purposes is the Suite Sleep Organic 2” Soft or Medium Soft.
Keep in mind that pure high quality latex is extremely resilient.
Soft latex of this quality is no where near as soft as other foams that are labeled as soft.
Here’s a link showing all of our toppers.
Delivery is free
A waterproof mattress protector will extend the life of any mattress, keeping it clean and dry.
