Spring Mattress


Armchair Traveller :(
I spent 34 K on a spring mattress, only to sell it for 2.5 K after 5 years. Went back to coir + foam combination which is best for back support. The ones you get in hotels will be even more expensive.
My dad constantly suffers from back pain and prefers sleeping on high density foam mattress. If the pain is more, he sleeps on floor for a while, so I believe that hard surfaces are better for back but I never had any such trouble on my custom built mattress which is pretty soft.

I checked on amazon and found a few options with 8" & 10" thickness for under 21k which I feel is great.

8" .... https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B07141VLY2/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2YL4DG8STMIG0

Better go and test on mattress you like the most after spending 15-30 minutes on it,
in big showrooms of may be other city.
Most big showrooms normally deal in such product.
Brand does not matter much but your feeling is important.
Take one that you are comfortable in.
No other way to judge this.
Or ask a hotel manager about their mattress purchase.

Try hush mattresses they are the largest supplier to star hotels costly but better in quality.
Else try peps with membrane.

8” is ideal but again generally we indians don’t feel comfortable in hotel kind of mattresses spl women complaints as per my professional experience.

I tried all kinds of spring mattresses for nearly 30 years. The only thing I will say is that these are not your typical mattresses. They have limited life spans and need rotations and flipping. If you have one mattress for both husband and wife then you need to flip the matters every six months so that both sides are equally subject to one heavy weight and one light weight. After every year of use, you have to rotate it (top side becomes bottom side). After doing this for 5 years you throw them out and buy another one.

Most hotels change their mattress in 3 years to a max. 5-year span. Unless you are willing to do this never buy this mattress. They have a lifespan. If you try to go beyond 5 years then some springs that bear heavy weight will lose their strength and support. This will give you back pains and sleepless nights.

Thanks for the tips here. I'm just about to buy a new mattress. I have back pain issues, and it's worsen lately. I don't want to take more painkillers, as the side effects the Canadian pharmacy states are a little scary. So it's time to think about my health. First of all, I've decided to change my mattress, because it's old and not comfortable anymore. I also started practicing yoga. If anybody has any non pharmaceutical tips, please share.
