Luxury firm was too firm for me (but I'm very light)

For starters, I am 130 lb., athletic, female, 75% back sleeper, 25% side sleeper, with a history of lower back and neck issues. Nest is a GREAT company. I bought this from their brick and mortar store in Berkeley CA. I was looking for memory foam, good support and a good amount of hug and contour. In the store, the luxury firm felt just right. At home, and even after a few months, it's just too firm for me. I am experiencing a little tingling in the bottom of my foot and also in my shoulder if I sleep on my side. I returned to the store to try out the medium version of the bed, and, regrettably, that felt too soft. I was encouraged to try their Alexander Signature all memory foam bed, but the quilted cover on that one was too thick and I felt like it was detracting from the memory foam feel that I like. I am now looking at the Novosbed Medium or Loom & Leaf Luxury Firm.
