    Default HELP!! looking for a new mattress..........

    Two years ago Joe and I made the mistake of buying a very expensive pillow top mattress, within 2 months we hated it, and put in on our guest bed, went back to using our old one. Today we went shopping for a new mattress, we need FIRM due to Joe's lower back problems. Anyone bought a mattress lately that they love?? We bought one today made by Stern and Foster, top of the line (they said) to be delivered next Friday, we paid a pretty penny for it, came home and looked at reviews, they were horrid!!!!!! Going tomorrow to cancel my order!!

    Have you tried something called the Sleep Number Bed? I hear ads about this bed on my radio station all the time and it just sounds really comfy. You can adjust the bed's firmness for your side and Joe can adjust his side as well. Then there's another mattress called the REM mattress. Again, something that is highly recommended here. I have not ever tried either of these mattresses myself but am curious about them. Something to look into perhaps, Kelly.

    I have a friend with the sleep number and they absolutely hate it... She said it is like sleeping on a fabric covered air mattress.

    We we have one from ikea in our guest room and it I is awesome. Every time someone stays over they want to steal it from us.? Check them out

    Now the Sleep Number mattress makes one with memory foam on the top.I don't know how they are but $. I have been dealing with back problems for 40 years(+RA). Had back surgeries. The only thing that has kept me going is my wonderful Chiropractor. I got a memory foam mattress. It was the mattress store brand-it is firm but very comfortable for me. The one I had before this was a "counting sheep" mattress.Serta or Sealy.? It felt like concrete was pushing against my bones. Nothing will stop the pain for me-but have slept much better since I got this "memory foam type" mattress.
    I have seen the sleep number mattresses for sale on our local website(by people who bought them) so I am guessing there are others who were disappointed in them, too.

    Lucky for me I don't have back problems, I do have arthritis but it's in my feet and knees, all this talk and bad reviews on the Stern and Foster has stressed Joe out, he loved the mattress, so we are going ahead and getting it. I told him though in a year when this mattress goes to sh*t, we WILL do LOTS of research when we have to buy another one. This is our second expensive mattress in two year, I so hope this one holds up.

    We've had a stern & foster mattress for about seven years now (wow it's getting up there!) and love it. It's got a pillow top, so probably something way different than what you ordered. But maybe it will be good! I really think they're hit or miss. But I love my bed. :p

    Good luck!

    I have been through quite a few mattresses until I found one I could sleep on. I just would sell them-and then get a different one! Good luck with your new mattress! I hope it works for you!

    I know that I told you this on FB Kelly, but we absolutely LOVE our Tempur-Pedic mattress. My husband has back/neck issues plus Gout… I have arthritis and bad knees… basically we are a mess!!! I've been looking at mattress reviews for months, and I've never heard a bad thing about the Tempur-Pedic. They are GOD awful expensive, I'm NOT going to lie about that… BUT they have a 20 year warranty. I LOVE my bed so much, that I hate to travel because I miss sleeping on my bed… LOL

    i hope you find the right match Kelly! I've been sleeping on the same mattress that I've had since I was 12, and my parents had it before then. I don't know the brand but it has lasted at least 30 years. Gonna have to buy a king next time tho, my husband doesnt get much room with Lola in big bed with us. We'll have to get one within a few years. We like soft mattress though.
