A great direction for you to experience a mattress that is built for today's larger framed individual would be the "HD" "Heavy Duty" by Paramount Sleep.


They use a lot of steel in their mattresses :12.5 Gauge Tempered Steel Coils, 12.5 gauge tempered steel delivers the heaviest and strongest support system available in a mattress today

They use the best High Density, Quality Foams consistently delivering reduced body impressions and long comfort life. Most importantly, these high-quality materials reduce pressure points and cradle your body for comfort and support.

The "HD" Hand Tufted mattress system is fully outer-tufted by hand, securing the upholstery layers to ensure that they will never settle or shift over time. Think of it as a triple decker sandwich that is held together by toothpicks. All those layers of goodies are held in place by the toothpick and they do not shift. Well the tufting (which by the way is the construction method the most expensive mattresses in the world uses) uses heavy duty strings that are strung from the bottom surface of the mattress to the top cover of the mattress, every 11" all over mattress. This also eliminates the "Drum Effect," (The phenomenon of stitching a mattress at the edges very tightly whereby the mattress cover acts like a drum cover and does not allow you to be cradled by the mattress.)

Edge Support The special encasement brings high-density foam support for a firm seating edge and enduring stability, while eliminating edge roll-off. Think of it as a picture frame of very firm foam around your mattress.A mattress edge should never be used for sitting, but a s a stable edge to get your balance and get in and out of bed it is wonderful.

Paramount uses a 16-Slat Wood, Zoned Foundation The extra-sturdy, kiln-dried wood dowel-and-beam construction uses three times the material found in ordinary mattress foundations. It is the same design used on waterbeds, where extreme pressure and weight factors call for maximum durability. The 16-wood slat construction, additional center rail and increased edging all add up to superior stabilizing support and extended mattress life.

At my store Get-A-Mattress have been selling Paramount "HD" for 2 years now. We have sold nearly 60 sets and I have never had 1 return or repair or complaint! I am truly impressed. There are dealers throughout the country. The price points are reasonable and for a queen set expect to pay, depending on the model anywhere from $1,000. - $1,899 depending on the many different models.

I truly believe in this mattress for not just larger individuals but also for clients who want a mattress that will perform for many years to come problem free!

Hope this helps!

These two Therapedic Medi-Coil two-sided mattress were specifically designed for people who carry extraordinary body weight. Our largest customer exceeded 500 pounds. These mattresses have been used by such individuals over the past several years with zero complaints.

I would recommend staying away from Polyurethane foam and synthetic mattresses.

I had a customer who weighed 525 lbs and she came into my store and wanted a new casing after 19 1/2 years of sleeping on her latex mattress. She said the latex held up just fine, she just wore a hole in the casing. It may cost more money to do latex then you planned on spending initially but worth the investment. For example a queen 10" mattress only (with no coils) from our company is $2,539 and King $3,179 with no sales tax and free shipping. Call me at 479-966-2262 if you are interested and I will give you details.

Buy it now or buy it never, because if you don't buy it now you will be stuck buying bad mattresses forever!
