Uggggh, mattress shopping is the worst! We ended up with a Simmons Beautyrest with a foam pillowtop. We’ve had it for about 4 months now and no complaints!

Good luck!

iComfort all the way. It’s like Temperpedic, but it has a cooling gel that doesn’t over heat you like a lot of temperpedic matresses do. Plus it is less money :).

We have a Sleep Number bed (aka Select Comfort) and absolutely adore it.  He can set his side to be a little softer like he likes it, and I can set my side to be a little firmer, and we both sleep great.  Their website will give you the whole pitch on why the air chamber mattress is better for your back and joints than a spring/coil mattress.  All I can say is, I’ll never buy another brand again.

I got started on the Sleep Number bed back in college when my sister had a job in the Sleep Number store in the mall; I mocked her for selling what I thought was a total scam, but one afternoon I took a nap in her Sleep Number bed and when I woke up, I felt better than I had in weeks. I’m definitely a convert.

They are pricier than many mattresses but considering I got ~12 years life from my last one and am on year 6 or so on this one, I think they’re well worth the price. Plus they don’t get the “dents” that you get in a coil mattress over time, no flipping or rearranging needed.  My last spring mattress had a me-shaped dent on one side and a dog-shaped dent at the bottom corner when I retired it!

FWIW if you are considering a tempurpedic, sleep number, or other non-spring/non-coil mattress, many hotels have them. It’s just a matter of figuring out which chain.  Sleep Number beds are in many Radisson properties.  It’s absolutely worth spending a night in a hotel to see how you like those bed types, because a mattress is a really big and important purchase.

I recently bought a Serta iSense.  It’s a coil/foam hybrid.  And its available with/wothout a pillowtop.  We both absolutely love it.

I did a very extensive post on this topic for another Bee on this topic awhile back… check it out here = http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/tell-me-about-your-mattress

Hope this helps,

PS – Personally… I am a Simmons Beautyrest fan (Serta is also good, and similar).  As I said in the linked post, it is more about “what kind” of mattress / bed you are a fan of than a brand name (Pillowtop / No-Flip – Inner Spring – Pocket Coil – Foam – Sleep Number – Adjustable Bed – Water Bed etc)

@This Time Round:  Hey, that was my post 🙂  Your advice was very helpful!

@CherryWaves:  As I mentioned in that post, we bought a Sealy posturepedic.  We’ve had it for several months now and have no complaints!  Hopefully the pillow top holds up.

Memory foam is my very favorite. We bought an off brand off amazon almost 5 years ago and it has held up like it’s brand new! We recently upgraded to a king size, we love it so much. I think we paid like $450? Every bit as awesome as tempurpedic (same density/grade foam, etc) for like 1/4 the cost. No need to pay for branding/marketing….there were so many amazing reviews that we felt confident ordering, and i’m really glad we took the risk!
