 Mattresses

We are looking for a new mattress. I am having some lower back problems and the Seely we have now is not cutting it. I am on the heavy side 6' 240 and there is a hole where I lay even though the mattress is only about 4 years old and was not a cheap one. Warranty will not cover the problem since there is no measurable depression when I get off the bed. My wife is 5' 4" and weighs 130 so we are looking for a mattress that suits us both. We are leaning towards a Spring Air coils with a latex cover($1500 to 1900). Also going today to look at the Intelli bed and Select Comfort.

Anyone have comments on either of these mattresses or any other one that has helped lower back problems. Some of these are lots of money but I will pay a lot for a good nights sleep.

We bought a clone of the Tempurpedic. Supposedly it's the same type of foam but it doesn't seem as dense as the genuine article (we have a Tempurpedic pillow to compare with). However, it was a lot less money and since it had a money back guarantee we gave it a try and kept it. It's a lot better for my back than the high dollar Sealy it replaced but it didn't work miracles. We were visiting some friends and they had a select comfort in their guest bed. I liked it quite a bit but my wife hated it. And so it goes.

This may sound stupid but have you ever flipped the mattress? It's like rotating tires. Turn it around 180 degrees and flip it over 180 degrees. It works wonders.

Have you seen the new mattresses that "never need flipping"? I was told they're built exactly the same as the old two-sided matresses, but they just cheaped out and didn't finish one side. And good old marketing charges extra since it's a feature.

There's a big difference in "never needs flipping" and "cannot be flipped". I have a $900 "cannot be flipped". It's a "pillow top"--there is no pillow bottom--it's rough fabric.
And if you think about it, flipping over a mattress really does nothing--the springs are still springs, but like was mentioned rotating 180 degrees does work for a time until the springs take a permanent set as they do wear out so to speak.
The air-adjustable beds (Select Comfort??) now that's another story; years ago I was solicited to buy one. They offered a "90-day money back warranty". I asked what the return rate was. They said about 5 percent. Then I asked how many they sell a year. 2,000 was average. So that meant that at least 100 were being sent back per year. So I asked them what happens to the 100 or so. They said the employees buy them. (Yeah, right) They have 250 employees. SO I told them that potentially ONE mattress could be many years old and had many, many owners if it changed owners every 90 days. They didn't know what to say. They told me they remove the top cover and sew on a new one. Sure. I'll bet someone looks at it and says "ship it". It would be like sleeping on a dirty, flea-ridden motel mattress wouldn't it? You have no idea who or how many had it before you.

We have a pillow top on both top and bottom. It is so thick that we have to buy very hard to find and expensive sheets. The dual pillow tops also add uneeded height and more weight

That said the Stearns and Foster pillow lets me get up in the AM ache free whereas with no pillow top I was pretty stiff.

The Seely we have is a nonflipable, pillowtop on one side only.

Over the years I've purchased a number of expensive mattresses and most weren't worth a crap. The one with the bowling ball commercial was the worst and about $1,400.00 invested. I ended up with some inexpensive Denver Mattresses and love them. You will want to get a firm mattress with pillow top for support. I'm 6ft and about 256 lbs.

I have several homes plus my daughters place and have about a half dozen of them all the same. I always get queen size with split box. The split box is good for hauliing stuff upstairs.

They need to be rotated 180 degrees every once in a while and then flipped.

yooper, I have a king size "Doctor's Choice" (whatever that means...) from Denver Mattress and both my wife and I love it. Seems like it was right at a grand, but it is one of my best purchases.

We had a Sealy Posturepedic before, and the difference is unbelievable.

We opted for the non-pillow top because my wife likes to flip the mattress every couple of months. Flipping and rotating a mattress used to make a difference, and it might not be necessary anymore, but then again it may be one of those "we've always done it that way" things in our lives that we're reluctant to change. That said, I do think it makes a difference.

Yooper I walked by a mattress store and the King size mattresses were all split box and mattress. Is that how they are selling them now or was that because they were just too lazy to lug the one piece kings into the show room?
