So my FI and I sleep on a supposedly very fancy mattress that he bought 8 or 10 years ago when he moved into the house (that was before I met him). He was single for years on end, so he slept in this queen-size bed by himself and created a rather significant sag in the middle of it. When I moved in, well, I noticed and disliked the sag, but the mattress cost a huge amount of money (natural latex rubber apparently is very expensive) and he has always been resistant to getting a new mattress, since we don’t have a lot of disposable income.
BUT I HATE THAT MATTRESS!!!!!!!!!!! I am SO tired of sleeping on a freaking sagging mattress that makes me roll into him, or if I sleep on my back or stomach, twists my hips and spine so I wake up with an aching back. I have back problems anyway and the damn mattress sure doesn’t help!
SO, I think I’m going to insist on getting a new one. It will take us a while to save up, but I am DONE with the stupid thing.
Has anyone encountered a queen mattress that doesn’t sag??? if so pleeeease tell me what it is!
/vent over 😛

I don’t know about mattresses that don’t sag that are spring mattresses. We have a TempurPedic and it’s the best thing since sliced bread. It’s foam so it doesn’t sag. It makes nookie a bit weird in the beginning, but it’s sooooooooo worth it. Ours is a queen sized mattress. You have to get used to it, but you will love it once you do.

We actually have an Ikea mattress that has a memory foam pillow top type thing built in. No sagging and its pretty comfy. Just firm enough for DH and just soft enough for me. We were told by the mattress people at a mattress shop that you should always go firmer because you can always make a mattress softer with toppers and such, but its hard to make it firmer.

Tempurpedic is the best! completely worth the hype. we’ve had a king one for 4 years and its still amazing, no sagging or smushing. highly recommend it!

@Creiddylad: Another vote for Tempurpedic. It’s fabulous and I have never slept better.

@Creiddylad: We have a Restonic. It’s one of those foam mattresses and it also has something inside it that’s supposed to help pull away heat, since my FI is a furnace. It came with a 15 year warranty against dips and sagging. I love it! It was pricey (about $1,500 for a queen) but oh my gosh, is it worth it!

We just bought a memory foam mattress from samsclub.com, Night Therapy. I love it, SO doesnt, but for the cost concious, it was the only move for us at this time. Couldnt splurge on the 3K for a Temperpedic. I will never go back to a spring mattress. If you can afford it, go for the Tempurpedic.

@BlondeBee: But Tempurpedic and similar high-end mattresses are soooo expensive!!!!
@MsCaptainCanada: Yes, I am definitely cost-conscious. 🙁 So is my FI, though in the recent past he could have easily afforded a new mattress. He just insists that he spent too much on the damn thing to buy another. He even lost the warranty papers, so we couldn’t even explore that route. 🙁

@Creiddylad: Yes, Tempurpedic is expensive, but worth every penny. It was a stretch for us, but we are both grateful we chose it.

@Creiddylad: Ohh, boys. I did a lot of shopping around before we bought ours. Try the website http://www.sleeplikethedead.com They rate and review mattresses from all over. Tons of information on there! That’s when I started looking at Costco and Sam’s club for an alternative to Tempurpedic that wouldn’t cost us so much.

We have a $600 Bellagio mattress. No sagging, soft but supportive!
You could always stick an ultra-luxe pillow topper or foam topper on it for another $200, if you’re into super soft mattresses!

@Creiddylad: I’ve heard really good things about sleep number beds from my parents and a few friends. We’re planning to get one in the next few months or so. They have a range of pricing, I think they start around $1k and go up quite a bit from there, but there is a range depending on preferences and needs

I don’t know what kind ours is exactly, it’s either Simmons or Serta or Sealy. One of the S brands. It’s a huge tall king pillowtop which is the comfiest thing ever.

@Creiddylad: They are worth it and last foreverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Think about how much $ you’d save over the years of having to buy a new one every so many years. One word of caution, though, when you move, hire movers. They’re heavy mattresses, and since they’re foam, there is literally NO shape so they’re difficult to carry.
That said…they’re still worth every penny. Buy once, cry once.

We bought a $1600 spring mattress only to return it within 2 weeks due to already sagging.
Got a tempurpedic and will never go back to springs again! IN LOVE with this bed. Theres def an adjustment period but so worth it after.
