Every morning I wake with a very sore lower back. I tried the reccomendations for sleeping postures in the book, but that has not helped. Next thought is the matress. Is there a matress brand that you reccomend? Latex? Springs? The kind that conforms to your body? I have always chosen very firm matresses, thinking that would help.

Make sure you check your spam filter if you don't receive it, since it has photos it will sometimes get caught there.
Generally our recommendation is to have a medium firm mattress with a high spring count. A soft pillow top can be useful if you are particularly thin or sensitive in your bony areas.

I recently bought a new mattress and opted for one that has a few inches of softness on top, to cradle my boney parts and fill in my curves, with a firm layer beneath it. I opted for a mattress made by Brentwood Home that was sold by Costco(so it was a good price). I purchased the Cedar model as it was the firmest one they offer on Costco's website. It's also made of Green materials which was a plus for me as well. Brentwood Home sells other models as well and the customer service was very helpful.
Both my husband and I love this mattress. If you purchase online most, if not all, manufacturers give you a trial period and you can return it if it doesn't work for you.
