Hey everybody. I am starting this thread for getting your reviews about hard-sided versus soft-sided waterbed. Now you may ask why waterbed in this day and age when we get a super comfortable mattress. The answer to it lies in my past, my childhood days. I hope you don’t mind if I weave you the tale that is my childhood and some awesome memories that are entailed with it. We used to have this house back in Colorado where we’d sometimes spend our weekends as a family. We would sit together and play games and have the mushiest conversations about boyfriends/girlfriends and then have our dad philosophize about life. Those were good times. This was also the one time of the month where I’d sleep the best. Not only most comfortable, but also the longest. I don’t know how many of you had this kind of a bed, but I used to have this old hard-sided bladder type bed which was the love of my life until I was 15. There wasn’t a day that would go by when I wouldn’t dream to be on it again, and then I begged my parents to let me bring it home. When I was old enough to work, I bought one for my house as well and felt like my life’s purpose had been fulfilled. I don’t know, but sometimes when you sleep comfortably on any mattress, sleeping on any other one just makes you compare it with the better one. That’s been my entire life. Now coming to mattress part, I want to relive my childhood days (regarding sleep), and my question here is whether they make that kind of beds anymore and if yes, where do I start looking? Any and all answer appreciated.
