Another vote for the tempurpedic. I LOVE MINE! I have had it for 3 or 4 years and it is just as good as the day I got it. It is more then spring mattresses, but worth every penny in my opinion. try one out.

Perfect if you like a very soft bed.
I think these are the most comfortable beds in the world! It does look like a normal bed and the weight is a fraction of an old waterbed.

Buying a new mattress is such a racket.

Each of the main manufactures have many different models of the same mattress. 1/8 inch of foam could easily run you an extra 200 bucks.

Watch the video at this link.

I absolutely love my pillow top mattress. In fact, I woke up this morning and gave my son his medicine and crawled back in and thought just that. I'm absolutely sold on them and its what I'll buy for now on.

I agree with going to try out the mattresses. They say to lay on them for 15 minutes to get a real feel.

I totally agree... it's so confusing to have to buy a mattress without really knowing anything about it. Thanks for the link!

Hubby and I just went through this. After much lying down, comparing ridiculous prices, and getting recommendations from people, we went with a Verlo. If you have a Verlo store near you, check 'em out before you make your decision. We saved about a thousand bucks and love the bed. I don't know if they are all over the country; never heard of them when we lived in NJ, but we are in the midwest now and they are all over.

I know some people who have sleep number beds and love them and some who hate 'em. Unfortunately, some of them are married to each other! It's a very individual thing; you really have to lie down on it for a few minutes before you buy.

Hmmmm, well, I'm no mattress expert, having just bought a new one after owning my old one for about 30 years. I got a pillow top Serta or Simmons or something like that. It's fine, but ...

...... the absolute BEST bed I ever slept on was a Heavenly Bed in the Westin Hotel in the Bahamas last year! I mean, these mattresses were so perfect for my 76-year old mother and me, that we are STILL talking about them as being one of the best parts of a wonderful beach resort vacation! We couldn't WAIT to crawl into our beds after a rigorous day at the beach and pool! LOL!

I wish I'd known you could buy these mattresses before I got mine. Our friends said we would love this bed and they were RIGHT! - The Westin Heavenly Bed by Simmons - Epinions.com I was surprised at the second review, and I would sure check that out before buying.

We just bought a new mattress a few months ago. We went to a store and tried mattress after mattress. We found a few we loved. We then spoke to a saleswoman to find out what we were looking at and see if she could suggest other things. This store had a computerized bed that you lie down on the way you sleep (your top three positions) and it maps out your pressure points and lets you know what type of mattress might be best for you. Luckily both my wife and my map were almost identical. The program said we should go with a pretty firm mattress, but with some softness. We had the saleswoman show us mattresses that fit that description and it turns out those were the exact mattresses we were looking at. She did show us one that we had not seen though that was $100 less than our top choice at that time. Our original top choice was a pillow top. This other one was not, but it was just as comfortable.

We ended up with a Certa Vera Wang mattress and we are thrilled with it. The thing is, what is comfortable to one person will be horribly uncomfortable for another. The only way to know is to lie down and try it.

I have heard the foam mattresses get very warm too. We did not bother looking at them for that reason.

My parents have had a waveless waterbed for about 10 years or so and I have to say that I find it extremely comfortable as well. You do not know that it is a waterbed unless you are told. There is no motion at all.

I have slept on one of those too and thought I had died and gone to heaven. It was sooooo comfy.
