Avoid a hard mattress

Got it. 

I'm planning on testing them out by putting a pea underneath before I try to sleep on the mattress... Fingers crossed.

Yep. We took advantage. I’ll report back after having the new setup.

I ordered a mint. Something about not sweating my ass off all summer and not having back pain every morning put me over the edge. I will update with a review once I get it.

My mattress is old and misshapen and I need to get a new one. I was told to get one with a gel foam top because I am a hot sleeper. Anyone have experience buying from Slumber Solutions? I'm mostly interested because it's on sale. 

Slumber Solutions Gel Memory Foam from Overstock

If possible, look at the novaform pearl at Costco... That's what we'd go with if player 2 didn't hate all foam. 

Highly rated on CR, and a good price. Different firmness available.

I've been on Shaggy/Surly too long because I read your post and thought, "Why are people rating mattresses in the Cloak Room?"

 

Thanks for the rec.

I think we're going to pull the trigger on a Tuft & Needle Mint Mattress. 100 nights guarantee and the one we laid on at Northpark Mall was pretty nice.

i Like ours but wife likes something softer. They did send a free pillow top but now my back hurts again. I think I might have to go with a sleep number so that I can keep my side firmer.

Update. Mattress is breaking in and much more comfortable. Also they’re sending me a topper for free.


Exactly what happened to me, and the topper is exactly what we needed. Really great customer service too.

We are really happy with it. I had to start over to find my setting. Started with 95 and have adjusted down. I think I’m at 65 or 70. I like a really firm bed to sleep on. I like to lounge / watch TV at 30.

I bought a tempurpedic over the weekend, last night was the 4th night I've slept on it. Pretty good so far. We got the hybrid with innersprings. Feels much better than the regular Tempurpedics IMO. The wife is happy, which is 70% of the battle.

I know I’m getting some when wifey cranks both sides up to 100

Enjoying our Tuft and Needle Mint Mattress so far. Not waking up with back pain is rather nice. Got the nice pillow and my wife stole it from me so I had to order a 2nd one which is less full feeling than the original one. Women.

It’s firm and fucking awesome. Worst move I made was spending the last year in my deteriorating pillowtop. Best was ordering my current Costco memory foam. It’s very firm, wife thought she’d hate that but it’s been fantastic. Around $1000 iirc for a king. 

Ahem.  Neither the wife or I can get any sleep. Body aching. Added a little topper and it helped some but it’s just getting to the point where no one gets any rest.  Need some help. I’d guess my review above was good for 12-ish months before quality sleep started to deteriorate.

Looks like I'm in the market now. We've had a sleep number for about 10+ years. Whole different market out there now. Don't think that I want to go sleep # again. It was fine, but too pricey. Nectar, Layla& Loom/leaf foams rate highly. Saatva classic also rates high.Anybody have experience with these brands?

I had shit mattresses for years. The Purple Mattress (the one that is springs/foam/and purple goo) I think it's the Purple 3. It's their pricey one, but it's the first time I have looked forward to going to sleep on a mattress since college...I see now they have changed their branding/names..but they are the same mattresses...I think I have the hybrid 3"...that's what she said.

It seems too simple, but that lattice purple stuff is great...but if the industry can make us think plain old foam is fancy, then the purple crap works too. And really helps with heat...foam-only mattresses are hotboxes for me.

They are in some mattress stores if you want to go try them out. Ignore the cheesy frame that lifts and vibrates. Just because it doesn't take quarters, doesn't make it a good idea.

I have the Saatva and I like it quite a bit. I had the Nectar for a year and swapped it out. It was fine, but the Saatva is nicer.

Another +1 for Purple 3. Wife and I tried out a bunch of the popular online bed-in-a-boxes, returned them all. Purple 3 is so much better.

Bump. Bought a costco queen. I like it but too small for the girlfriend so it is moving to the guest bedroom. Need to upgrade to king size. Happy with costco but wanted to double check

We had to get the padded topper for it because the regular bed was too hard for me and I was waking up with shoulder and hip pain. It’s improved a lot since we added that and I sleep pretty good. We keep the A/C pretty cold at night so I haven’t noticed feeling hot. I think the hybrid is supposed to be less hot.

Purple Hybrid 3" grid.  Bought about 45 days ago.  I sleep more comfortably.  Cooler, for sure- no waking up sweaty like I used to.

It was worth it, IMHO.  Now to see if holds up for 10 years like they promise.

 

Their sheets( freebies) are weird as hell to me.  They are all stretchy and almost latexy( not quite,  but work with me here.)  When you pull the covers up to cover your shoulders, the sheets always want to shoot back down range.  I just wonder, "Who thought stretchy sheets would be great?"

Stretched out on a new tempurpedic cooling mattress that supposed to stay 8degrees cooler than the room in a store yesterday. Pretty comfy.

$5,300 seems a bit much though. Damn.

Lol I went to a mattress store once and the sales girl showed my a Tempurpedic that cost $12k.

Then, straight faced, tried to convince me to finance it like car.

I think ours was over $3k, but worth it.

I've had my Tempurpedic hybrid for 6 months now. We really like it, doesn't get too hot and it's just the right mix of support and comfort. I didn't want to spend $3600 but I don't have any regrets thus far.

That’s fair. But have you weighed it?

We need a new mattress.  My wife needs firm or better.  I don't care, I can sleep on anything from foam rubber to rocks.

If we just get a typical innerspring mattress,  is there some particular feature we need to be looking for?  Our current mattress is about 13" thick.  It looks like CostCo has at least 2 Sealy models that are similar, $400 and $570, and a Novaform memory foam model for $600.  Is a "firm" memory foam mattress actually firm?  What is the likely difference between the two Sealy mattresses?

Will CostCo haul off the old mattress?

not suggesting a specific one but look at Consumer Reports for general across the board "firmness" ratings.

Also, CostCo and Sams Club have extended warranties on their mattresses (Sams I know about specifically) that are no questions asked exchanges

In my experience firm memory foam mattresses can be much much firmer than firm spring mattresses.

Bought a Tempurpedic four years ago and regret it.  I completely fell for the "60=90 day break in period" before you sleep better than ever. Mine has felt the same since day 1 and its not good to me.  I also regret not returning it during their "no hassle money-back guarantee period"... minus the very, very fine print, return & stock fee of  $1500.  I fell for all the people I knew that raved about theirs.  I'm convinced they feel just as sorry as I do but are trying to convince themselves that they weren't suckers too cause now they are all talking about their new beds they just got to replace it and how much better they are...

I probably expected too much from a $6K bed? Well, definitely.

Most comfortable beds for me have all been in the $300-400 range. I wish I would have just done that and replaced every couple years as needed... would have come out thousands ahead.  Never again.

My message is to try a bed out in the showroom for a half hour if your are really thinking of buying it.  If you have ANY reservation.. DON'T.
