My 100% latex mattress is good for back, side, and stomach sleeping. I am a 60% side, 30% back, 10% stomach sleeper, and my boyfriend is probably 33/33/34% stomach/back/side. We have a 2" top layer of soft latex. My side then has 6" of medium latex, and he has 6" of firm latex. The latex does not suck you in like memory foam, yet still contours to your body to relieve hot spots and not kill your neck or face if you are a stomach sleeper. I think I mentioned it before, but the latex stays cool unlike memory foam, and is supposed to last longer than foam including memory foam.

Had a tempurpedic for 8 or so years. Was reasonably comfortable, but I recall waking up every time I rolled over. I sunk into the foam and literally had to lift myself up just a bit in order to roll over. The other recollection was that, um, let's just say "other activities" had some similar challenges because sinking into the foam. :-)

I suggest purchasing the best "normal" mattress you like and can afford.

Then purchase the 3-4" thick foam mattress pad (sold as a memory foam cover, not the cheaper 1"), and put it on your bed. You will have the best of both worlds. DW an I purchased the $600 cover from Macy's during one of their white sales, and used a coupon or two, and brought the price to about $175.

If you don't like it you can take the cover off. We are year 3 and haven't slept better.
