Hey all. Jim here! I have wanted to replace my current mattress for quite a while now, but in reality, the thought occurred to me a year ago, when I was visiting my relatives in Florida, and I slept on their super plush mattress. Now my current mattress is a Tempur-Pedic which had served me for five years now when my older mattress finally gave in. I remember squealing with joy when I awoke the first morning, for the experience beyond anything else. I think my experiences are different from most others because I usually find new mattresses, no matter how different, to be most comfortable in the initial stages, which is weird because most mattresses expand and take a few days to let the materials in the mattress to “settle in.” Anyway, I got the Tempur-Pedic, and it was good for the first two years, even though it had softened a tad bit. I assumed this was because of the memory foam and as long as there was no premature sagging, I was good. Only now the sag factor has taken on a toll, and the mattress has softened to such an extent that it feels like I’m sleeping on a cloud and is uncomfortable. I can feel the support layer below. Even though I was pretty much unfazed by it, a talk with my friend had me concerned. My friend, who blogs about mattresses, said that it was important that I change it, especially considering my age and everything, that I needed something with good support for my back. I don’t have any serious back issues, but I won’t deny that my back often feels tender and sometimes extremely stiff when I awaken but never thought that it was perhaps because of the mattress. My friend convinced me to let the old mattress go, no matter how expensive, and finally, I decided to get a new one. So I began my research. I looked past some of the major brands because I wasn’t ready to spend my cash on something that does not have any guarantee of lasting. I had my mind on the Sleep Science, and the latex model seemed interesting. However, upon trying it, I figured that latex was WAY too firm for me, perhaps because I was used to sleeping on clouds (literally). While I was searching online for other brands, I came across Englander brand and found one model interesting – especially pillow-top Lady Englander. This made me walk down the memory lane, wherein I recall sleeping on this mattress at a fancy hotel once and remember waking up to the best night’s sleep. I even asked the receptionist about the mattress, and she said it was an Englander. I don’t remember what model she specified, but I remember being very pleased with its performance. I was just wondering if anyone on this forum had some first-hand experience with this brand? I am not sure because I’ve never seen any reviews anywhere about it either and don’t want to rush into getting a mattress from a brand I’d heard of only once before, with zero reviews.
