i have a queen sized chatham and wells mattress, called "the bernadette". i originally bought a king size only to find out it was just slightly too large for the headboard, so i had to settle for a queen sized.
it is extremely comfortable, i love it, but it's too firm for my wife. i like a very firm mattress.
someday, i want a mattress so big you need telephones to talk to someone on the other side of the bed.

Whatever your bed, you gotta have a memory mattress topper! The mattress molds to accomodate every curve of your body! No more awkward gaps between the arch of your back and the bed... Like sleeping on a cloud... Got mine at Target. (Should have gotten the one in Costco though as it's thicker.)

King size sleep number bed. I absolutely love it. It has plenty of room for us and the cats, and you can change the firmness to help with those aches and pains that come from a long day in the kitchen.

hmmm.. don't know about the size, but it could be queens size. In metric measures it's 140cm x 200cm.
We got a new matress two years ago, it was reduced in price due to closing the store...
we would like to have a bigger bed, but there is not enough space..

Frank needs his warm Daunen, that is definetely to warm for me, I have a lighter blanket for me ;o)
and two pillows for everyone

I have a 10 year old queen by Simmons. Pillow top. Its VERY soft! Well after 10 years it started to get a dip. SO I started to research memory foam. You know the stuff developed by NASA... bla bla bla. But Im NOT going to pay retail. They make that stuff inexpensively. So I decided to call the manufactuer (one of them) up in Canada. THey gave me a price of $60 for a inch of the stuff to cover my mattress. I didnt buy it because I dont have the money. But thought I would pass along the story.

I wouldn't be without my memory foam mattress. I have a hard time with anything else now, though the Marriott in West Palm Beach has comfy beds.

right now we have a king size waterbed. BUT that'll change hopefully soon enough for a pillowtop bed.
