Currently my hasband and I are sleeping on an air mattress because I just cannot decide which (kind of) bed is the best to buy. We tossed out our previous conventional mattress; because it was like sleeping on a bed of nails! The mattress springs felt as though they were pushing back at me - it was awful. I am curious what kind of bed, if any, you all would suggest. A sleep number bed? The tempurpedic memory foam mattresses?? Either/or ... they are both pricey - but when you need a bed that won't hurt your back, you pay the price. I would really appreciated anyones/ everyones opinion and suggestions, please!! Thank you, Thank you! Slenderthread
My grandma has a sleep number bed- she has horrible back problems and my grandpa didn't so this was ideal for both because they could each get what they needed. However, I've only slept on it once.
My friend got a tempurpedic memory foam and just wow, I can't imagine how he gets out of bed- I don't think I could. I felt like it just sucked you in and kept you there.
I've got mild back issues- mainly from being overweight. But I can't handle many beds. Forgive my memory, 2004 I bought myself a mattress from Sleep Country USA, 600$ on sale. I believe it was a pillow topped Sealy's. It was a decent and rarely gave me any troubles. Also it was definitely much better than anything I had before then. I didn't actually go shopping for my current mattress, but I believe it is a memory foam pillow top -some Australian name brand I can't recall. Anyways it was 850 on sale. Been sleeping on it for nearly 2 years and it's seriously the best bed I've ever had. So keep in mind that there are still good mattresses out there that might be a little less pricey.
I also recently bought a Sealy memory foam pillowtop mattress. I got it at Sears on sale for $490 and it was regular priced $1200! They were having a 60% off sale. I really wanted the Tempur-pedic mattress but they are very expensive! I added an additional memory foam layer to the new Sealy mattress that I bought and it is very comfortable and very supportive. I can actually sleep on my back again with no pain (don't forget to put a pillow underneath your legs though). I am very satisfied with my purchase. Good luck on finding a mattress.
