We have been doing some mattress shopping for a queen.
We are confused. We know we like firm but with a little cushion on top, just a bit. Kind of middle range firm.
We checked out Simmons and stearns and foster.
The stearns and foster seems really comfortable… A bit pricey but a local place has a couple deals going and we can get the whole thing (mattress with box spring and the metal thing that holds up the bed) for under $1,400.
Compared to that is about a $200-350 difference (less) with particular Simmons models, and others about the same price too.
I caught some bad reviews on the stearns & foster but then I read articles that it is one of the “best”. So that is confusing.
We just want one that’ll hold up!
I think we are caught between the two right now!
Anyway, that is us at the moment.
What is YOUR mattress?? Brand/kind? Any recommendations?

I forget, but we bought it last year. I would see what is most comfortable and then wait for Labor day. That is supposedly the biggest sale weekend for mattresses we were told when we bought ours.
We ended up getting ours 50% off plus free financing for 18 months. We just structured the payments to pay it off in 17 months.
The softer the mattress the more it will wear. Its important to rotate the mattress too.

Ahhh I didn’t even think of labor day!! Excellent point to wait. Hopefully by then we will have figured out what we want!

@yassim:We got a tempurpedic and it is AWESOME. I think we got a medium-end one for $1700 and it is a dream. We got the “cloud” one.
We used to have a sealy bed before we got married, firm, it was decent but not stand out. It was $800.
Both are queen.

We bought a really nice mattress when we got engaged. I believe it was a Simmons Beautyrest– not too firm or soft. Well the whole thing got lumpy pretty quick and we were really disappointed with it.
We slept really well at the 4 Seasons and we loved their mattress. We found out you can buy it and we did. It arrived about 4 weeks ago and we’re getting the best nights’ sleep we’ve gotten since we’ve been living in the same place!

I don’t remember the brand, but I have a pocket coil mattress and I love it! It’s so comfortable.

We just bought a tempur as well.. Fiance is so nervous about it since we’ve never slept on that type of mattress before, but I’m excited to try it out!
