Hate buying a new mattress at my age, however, think I need to. Advice please. How does one choose? A five minute lie on it doesn’t seem very satisfactory? I have a bad back and shoulders and don’t want rubber latex. Any advice would be welcome.

Can you help her? What is your advice buying a mattress?
