There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all mattress. All of us are unique which means that our bodies require different amounts of comfort and support throughout the night. For many people, the standard mass-marketed mattresses from big-box retailers don’t provide near enough support and often wear out far too quickly.
At STL Beds, we offer a comprehensive sleep solution for this dilemma. Our selection of Heavy Duty (HD) Mattresses can provide higher quality support for longer than most standard mattresses. Here we’ve answered some of the most commonly asked questions about Mattresses for heavy people.
For a mattress to be labeled as Heavy Duty, it needs to be able to support 250-350 pounds. You’ll often see mattresses for heavy people labeled as “two-sided” which simply means that the mattress has two useable sides and both sides can support that weight range on either side of the bed.
HD Mattresses are also constructed from a variety of materials you won’t find in your typical compressed “bed-in-a-box” mattresses. Some HD Medicoil Mattresses are constructed with special materials, two such material found in select models is sleep cool gel memory foam—or all-natural latex support layer. High traffic areas like the mattress seat edges are reinforced to make entering and exiting the bed easier and longer lasting. Due to these weight requirements and extra reinforcement, HD Mattresses are designed to last longer than a typical mass-marketed mattress.
The materials used to make heavy duty mattresses often vary based on their manufacturer. Most mattresses for heavy people feature multiple types and layers of materials that serve different purposes. Our HD Medicoil mattresses are composed of a high-density foam top layer, a base foam bottom layer, a signature coil spring foundation (encased in a layer of foam), and layers of natural latex or additional memory foam. The purpose of each layer is to offer a additional unique element of comfort, support and durability.
Of course! Simply put, HD mattresses are made from superior materials with designs that are made to last. A standard mattress can be expected to last around 8 years with normal use. Today, we use our beds for a lot of other things besides sleeping which can lead to a mattress that loses its effectiveness much sooner than expected.
A heavy duty mattress is made to last 10-15 years. This means you will get more value when you invest in a heavy-duty mattress. Plus, a mattress that is better built will maintain the same “brand-new” feeling for longer.
A bariatric mattress is a mattress that is built to help support someone who is medically obese. These mattresses are made of special materials, feature unique designs, and provide the highest level of support.
Our HD Medicoil Mattresses are bariatric mattresses. Although anyone can use them, their design can help heavy people find more restful sleep. HD Medicoil’s signature coil spring system and unique HD foundation provides support that other so called heavy-duty mattress set, which rely on layers of cheap foam, simply cannot offer.Learn More
Mattresses made today don’t resemble the ones that your parents bought for themselves or even ones that you enjoyed only 5 to 10 years ago. Mass manufacturers have traded in quality for reducing marginal costs and overhead. The result is a market flooded with mattresses that don’t provide the proper durability and support to make your investment worth it. Heavy Duty Mattresses are the response to this new issue in the industry. HD Mattresses prioritize support and are build to have longer lifetimes. However, not all HD Mattresses are built equally.

Yes. Most heavy duty mattresses are composed of many different supportive layers. This allows for your body to sink in slightly deeper and expel heat within the mattress. So instead of simply exchanging heat with the top layer of your mattress (like with many standard “cooling” mattresses), your body heat is drawn away from you.
Our line of HD mattresses varies depending on their model. You’ll want to be sure that your mattress’s specifications match your specific needs. You can do this by answering questions like:
