  • I have bad hips and we bought a latex mattress. We had looked in to getting a tempurpedic, but I didn't like how it held the shape of your body after you move, creating a little dip that take a minute to puff back out. It was also hot and felt like too much pressure to me. Our latex mattress gives great support but there is no pressure. The first night I slept on it, my hip pain was gone, and I only have pain when we stay at hotels now. Latex mattresses are expensive, but they can last 30 years. You just have to be careful when you shop for them because some companies top them with memory foam, which breaks down long before the latex does.
