I made the switch to a high density memory foam mattress last fall. It's been the best 6 months of sleep in my life.

But was the first week the best week of sleep in your life or the worst?

It may have taken a night or two to get situated, but definitely not a full week.

It's been 4 nights so far...but I also got a new pillow 2 nights ago and I think it is too thick. Last night was the worst night so far. It is not getting better.

memory foam mattresses take a while to break in. seriously jump around on it like a kid in a hotel room for a while

also, they absorb your body heat and get softer over time. if you leave for a few weeks when you come back it will be brick hard again

The one we got is a hybrid...like memory foam with some springs in it....or something like that.

We got a Tempurpedic Cloud about three years ago.  At first, my lower back started to hurt, but that's because our old mattress had zero support.  Over time, it worked itself out.

Now, I love that thing.  My wife is weird about it, and she says she prefers one with springs, but it's the most comfortable bed ever.
Title: Re: New Mattress
Post by: CNS on May 13, 2015, 11:23:29 AM
Same.  Cloud delux.  It is fantastic.   Have had it for several yrs and it is amazing.  I did start having some neck issues a while back and started sleeping without a pillow at all, and boom...great sleep, no neck issue.  The cloud contours well enough that I don't need a pillow. 

Side note:  I bought my wife a new memory foam pillow about 6 months ago.  The sales guy was trying to get me to upgrade to the new version of the Cloud.  During which, he told me I could sell my tempurpedic on Craigs list for at least 1k-2k.  I called bullshit and he said that he has customers tell him they sell mattresses that are just short of a decade old for that on there.   :surprised:

I mean if you need to buy a mattress from Craigslist then you are probably too poor to pay more than $50 for it.

I think our Tempurpedic was about $4k when we bought it.  They aren't cheap.  They come with a 25 year warranty, and the only way you get that warranty is if you use some sort of special mattress cover.

It's my understanding that memory foam beds, at least Tempurpedic, are immune to a lot of things like bed bugs and stuff like that.  So, as long as it's wrapped in the mattress cover, you're probably fine.

Besides, memory foam beds get really comfortable between 3-5 years.  That's my experience.  I mean, mine is quite possibly the most comfortable anything I've ever come across.

Also, if you're really wanting to get weird about it, if you want to check out a Sleep Number, go stay at any Radisson for a night.  Every one I've ever been to has one.

I now avoid all Radisson hotels if humanly possible because I absolutely detest Sleep Number beds.

in my unfortunate experience with bed bugs, i don't see how what the mattress is made of would have any impact at all.

when you say 3-5...is the bed still manageable the first years? Cuz i ain't breaking in one for that long.

replaced our 7 year old $900 king from Costco last month with the $1,200 "Stearns & Foster" king Costco now has in store.  The new mattress is at least 25% heavier than the old and has been great so far. 

I rented the $19.99 truck from Home Depot to get it home and these people came and hauled the old one away a $20 donation - http://www.avenueoflife.org/in-kind-donations.html (http://www.avenueoflife.org/in-kind-donations.html)

Got a new temperpedic, it's da bomb.

trying to think of a time when SD gave bad advice on a consumer product (vacations, thermostats, etc) but I'm stumped.
I have a 22 year old temperpedic. Still sleep great on it.

I sleep incredibly hot and mrs. dave incredibly cold. so I bought this thing

https://www.chilitechnology.com/products/ooler-sleep-system

and, folks, it rules. It keeps me at the perfect temperature all night. cannot recommend enough. Before I would toss and turn a lot to adjust and now I just sleep through the entire night and I feel more rested.

I’ve looked at getting one of these.  Do you hear it?  Do you notice a difference laying on it? Most worried about the sound though

Sound is very soothing to me. Like a soft fan. You c an adjust it to be quieter but it will take it longer to cool down. We leave it at the standard setting because it has a nice white noise. Don’t feel it other than that it’s obviously cooler below me.

I've been looking at that system since December 'sd. I'm like lava level sleeper, but I love big huge blankets too. This seems it could be best of both worlds. I keep hearing great reviews from reputable people, the 'sd stamp of approval might put me over the top.

i want to buy a new coffee machine too, but that's not too big for moving.  just kinda feels wasteful to stop using the one i have.

I have a fool proof mattress strategy that my family has used for years.  We go to Nebraska furniture mart and lay on a bunch of them and then buy the one that feels the best.  This hasn't failed yet!

I hope you don't need a new mattress before you can all get microchip'd.

Your mattress buying strategy and tv buying strategies line up nicely with my own.

Edit: I know that doesn’t line up with the Casper recommendo, but my personal strategy is trumped by the do-nothing-and-sleep-on-whatever-my-wife-orders-off-the-internet strategy.

this failed on me last time. The mattress never softened like we were promised :shakesfist:

I had the same issue.  Years ago I bought a Tempur-Pedic mattress and it was very stiff.  I thought that sleeping on it over time would soften it, but it stayed hard and was very hot to lay on in one position.  I gave up and put it in the guess room and decided to once again shop by laying on several.  The one I picked turned out to be great.   It was a Beautyrest Black and on sale, so it turned out to be less than the Tempur-Pedic mattress.

Bought one of these for the kid's room. I've slept on it a few times. Quality sleep had. Kid seems to like it when she visits.

I am getting an 8Sleep Pod Pro Cover cover to replace this. Not because the ooler doesn't rule because it for sure does and has changed my sleep dramatically for the better. but because mrs. dave wants one on her side to warm the bed up before cooling it off and I don't want two separate units. I'm probably going to just put the ooler in a box and pack it for travel. also the 8sleep has a bunch of sleep monitoring stuff and more advanced features. I'll review this thing in like a month. Not supposed to be here until end of Sep anyway.

Interesting. I am an idiot and bought a Casper mattress last year and sweat my ass off all night. We are prob just going to junk it and get something else, but the chill thing seems to be an option. Pricey, but a bit cheaper than a new mattress I guess.

Foam mattress have a reputation of being hot, I don't think it's brand specific.

It is fairly comfy, but yeah, its pretty hot. Its really hot with anything "abnormal" like being a bit sick or having a few drinks. I typically wake up in a pool of sweat on the weekends.

You better not flake out on your promised review. This expensive, non-essential product seems right up my alley.
