Mattress advice

Posted by Tamie on Monday, July 21, 2008

We need to buy a new mattress and are soliciting advice. Anyone have one they LOVE? I think memory foam is too hot.

I've been so bad about keeping up on the blogging thing... I think the foam matresses SUCK. We have a pillow top and I like it, but since I'm prego my back always hurts these days... so I'm not really the one to ask about mattresses.

I hope you are feeling better after getting your tonsils out. I got mine out a little over 2 years ago and it SUCKED so bad. I can honestly say it's worse than anything I've ever done. Even child labor...

Excel gym changed over to 24 hour fitness at Jordan Landing and I got a membership there. Childcare is free and I pay the same as I did at Golds and it's closer! YEAH! I was really dilegent for awhile, but the kiddos have been sick and I was out of town for awhile. I'm planning on working out the rest of this week. Wish me luck. Are you working out at Golds still?

Our mattress is over 5 years old, but we still totally love it like the first day we got it. I don't know brand (without ripping the sheets off--which I'm not willing to do at this point in my day). Anyway, if you remember the commercials where they set up bowling pins on the bed and then drop the bowling ball without disturbing the pins...that's the bed we have and love so much!

Good luck finding the right one for you guys!

Zip, none, zero...nothing. Considering we have and will have for many more years Paul's bed from his single years I can't help you. Tell us which one you chose because I would love to know!

We bought a mattress last summer and learned from many people and consumer reports that pillow tops last about a year (or less). We like the memory foam mattress that we bought- it has a fabric layer over the foam, and we have a mattress cover over the mattress so we haven't noticed that it is too hot. In our research we noticed that everyone likes Serta and Seally best. We ended up with a Kingsdown mattress that we are totally happy with (much more pricey than we would normally get) because we found a great deal when all the stores had to quickly liquidate all their inventory after new legislation on mattresses standards was passed last summer. Good luck!
