Hey guys, Okay, so I am so anxious right about now, I might explode. After doing about a month’s research on different mattresses, their pros and cons, I realize it’s time to make a decision on what to choose, given that my Queen size lies in my bedroom, rotting, really. What really annoys me is that only after 2 years of using, our pillow top is pretty much burned up and sagging heavily, making sleeping a dreadful act, really. I feel like a lot of these new mattress companies cannot be trusted, with regard to the quality of products they use. I mean, we are customers, and have the right to expect something nice for having paid so much. Let’s be honest, no one actually takes up warranties, and even if they do, it is such a hassle. I tried for this mattress, but apparently the “wear and tear” (as they term it in the mattress industry) is more than the expected level, so guess what? Don’t trust the warranties. I got super psyched about this mattress because it offered about 10 years of warranty. So I need to change it, desperately at that. I am willing to pay some big bucks for one too, granted that it is of good quality. I mean I think $1,500-2000 is a good amount to be spent on a King (my kids sleep on the same bed as me and are only going to grow bigger). On my priority list I have the return policy at the top, and hence decided to go with Costco or Sam’s (which I’ve been hearing some really good reviews about recently). That said, I really did try using a latex mattress, but it wasn’t cut out for me. I guess not every mattress kind is for everyone, am I right? This forum seemed like an open space where people can say whatever is on their mind, honest reviews about mattresses, and that’s why I like it to begin with. I really have fun reading through the many pages of reviews (and do enjoy the occasional feud- JK!) and feel like I can trust whatever I hear from here, which is why I’m here. HELP! If I’m not wrong, most people over here don’t love memory foam feels, but I do know of some friends who really love it and have become so accustomed to it that they think there’s nothing above it. Truth be told, it’s one of the main reasons why I’m so panicky about trying it. I’ve read about a zillion reviews by now, and I came across many positive reviews on Sleep Like the Dead. That said, I also read some comparisons where the recommended one is 12” Aerus from Sam’s! I am 6’2 and my wife is 5’7 (we’re a pretty tall couple), and we have two beautiful children, who despite having their own rooms end up sleeping on our bed most nights (one’s 2 and the other’s 5). A total of our combined weights would round off to about 500 lbs. My wife and myself are really the only ones with preferences, and we both prefer a firm support for our backs. We both sleep on our backs, while the kids usually undertake all possible sleeping positions. We want a bed that is cozy but extends the support we need for correct spinal alignment. We have it narrowed down to two options so far: · Aerus 12” Memory foam (Sam’s): This is only around $550, and has statistics giving the dimensions of 3” of memory foam on top (not entirely sure if that’s good). · The Night Therapy 10” memory foam (Sam’s): This is legit a STEAL at only under $500 for a Queen, and is composed of 3” of memory foam, but is lighter than the memory foam in the Aerus 12”. Could someone tell me if that’s a good thing, or bad? Also, the densities of the bases are given, but I’m not too sure what to do with that dynamic either. For reference, we would like to get some of that bounce offered, and from what I’ve read, the sinkage reduces with a decrease in memory foam density? Also want a cooler surface to sleep on, have read a lot about breathability properties and even though I don’t know the science behind it, I know I don’t want to wake up in a puddle of my own perspiration. If anyone knows anything else about these factors, fill me in. Thoughts of all sorts are highly appreciated. To recollect, we are looking for a mattress that offers a medium firm, maximized support, ample bounce (for the kids to jump on), lesser sinkage, good brand quality and no pressure point building. Many thanks!
