I think we have a Serta and its wonderfulll. What I love about it is the pillow top and then we’ve added an extra foam layer to make it super comfy. And because of that, on top of the frame (one of those cheapo metal ones), its so high up that I have to hop to get onto the bed and I’m 5’6″! 

If you can, buy mix and match. I saved a few hundred dollars by having a boxspring and mattress that were the same brand, but different fabrics and since I have a dust ruffle, you don’t see either! 🙂

Make sure you look up the laws of your state concerning mattresses. Sounds strange, but it’s important. I saw a dateline (or some show like it) a few years ago and it showed companies that sell “refurbished” mattresses and some states they don’t have to tell you or mark the mattresses. Seriously the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. 


Don’t look at a Berkshire mattress. Horrible longevity.

Two words for the best night’s sleep of your life every night: Memory Foam.

If you get a good one it seriously ruins you for every other type of mattress and you’re always longing to go home to your “perfect bed.” (At least, this has been my experience!)

Tempurpedic. Best thing ever. We just upgraded our queen to a king. It’s so comfortable. I hate if I have to stay at a hotel or someone’s house. 

The queen is now in our spare room and everyone that stays always asks what kind of mattress is it because they slept so well.

Kacie209:  My Darling Husband and I just bought our mattress set last month.. I believe its a Serta and we love our mattress!  I think they gave us a warranty of 25 years.  We got ours at Mattress Firm.

If you get a memory foam, do not go off brand. Mine is memory foam, but not tempurpedic, and after 5 years it’s starting to lose it’s rebound and giving my fiance and I major backaches.  When it was new though, it was like sleeping on a cloud!

Darling Husband and I need a new one and are going to try Kasper.  They send it to your home, you sleep on it for 60 days and keep if you like, or return if you don’t.  Sounds like a win-win so we’ve got nothing to lose!

Tempurpedic. Worth the money. I’ve been getting the best night’s sleep of my life every night since I got it. I was hesitant to drop that much money on a mattress but it is absolutely worth it. If you do get one, just know that you will have to break it in so the first month or so it will be a little hard but after that should be perfect.

Sleep Like the Dead has some good comparison charts about all the different kinds of mattresses.


We just bought a new mattress. But since we’re on a budget we went with an IKEA Sultan spring mattress. It’s incredibly comfortable!

I believe ours is Serta as well, by Vera Wang lol. Is there anything she doesn’t have her name on?

Ours is a king size and the greatest thing ever. I’m glad Darling Husband talked me out of the pillow top because those seem to get a lot of complaints, and you can always add one to your mattress separately and remove it if it gets squished.
