Hello, one and all. Welcome to this brand new thread that I have created, and I hope you can find yourself participating in this discussion. I am new to the idea of having public discussions through means of social media, but honestly, it is a little enthralling, and ever since I’ve been in the phase of researching for a new mattress, this is the one thing on my mind. To cut a long story short, I am getting married this spring and could not be more excited. However, I didn’t factor in all the other planning phases I’d have to undergo while making such an important decision in both our lives and at this point it is a little overwhelming. We had decided to get rid of all our old stuff and start afresh (both divorcees) and want to start on a fresh new page, together with things we’ve bought together. We have been to only two retail stores until now and one showroom (not sure what the difference is). Since we weren’t sure about how we felt about different materials such as memory foam, innerspring, latex, etc., we decided to start from scratch and work our way up to the top. We were leaning towards latex after everything that I’d read, keeping in mind that “latex is not for everyone,” but it was the pretty comfortable mattress for me. My fiancée, on the other hand, had some trouble with it and said that it was fine, just not what she had in mind. I want to make sure that everything we get, we both share happiness in it equally, so we tried out other mattress types and are pretty set on the feel of spring mattresses . For now, we have our minds pretty set on this. Shifting thoughts to a different kind of mattress right now would be a waste of time because we spent a good day figuring out something we both enjoyed. Plus latex was only suitable for me, so that’s off the table and we are far from considering only memory foam mattresses. From what I’ve read, we also know that if we are going with the innerspring, we are steering clear of the pillowtop models. Also, we had Serta on our minds, considering the first mattress we ever slept on together was that. But research proved that the big S’s were to be avoided, and that’s exactly what we have in mind. Some brands that stood out for us when we checked them out were the lesser-known brands. Of these, we particularly liked Vi-Spring (Hanbury Superb, excellent feel) and the Hypnos (Bedstead), both of which were very comfortable for both of us, but we couldn’t make a distinction, asking each other to choose whichever we wanted. This is where we got caught in a serious rut, because at least if one of us had an issue with one of the mattresses, we wouldn’t have to drag this situation further. Also, the weirdest thing was that when I was doing some research on these companies, I learned that there were like no reviews at all for them anywhere, which appeared a tad bit shady to me. Which is why I’m here. I need someone who owns one of these mattresses to give us an idea of what it’s like to own one and hopefully if some professional on the topic could give us a full-fledged review of the same, that would be a great help. Thanks in advance.
