Well, like many others, I am looking for a mattress, and am overwhelmed by the amount of information and advertising that I have found. My head has been spinning for a few weeks trying to research and make the most out of my money.
I currently sleep on an Englander Princess PT bed, but need a new one (as the soon-to-be ex is getting the bedroom suite). So while I was mattress shopping, on a whim I tried some Tempur-pedics and nearly fell asleep on every model that I tested. I really liked the Cloud Series and the Rhapsody, and maybe even one of the firmer ones. I just couldn’t pinpoint which I liked the best, as the memory foam felt so good to me. I liked the pressure relief of the Rhapsody’s HD foam, but also liked the Cloud Series softness and pressure relief as well.
I’m 5’10", 180 lbs, sleep on my stomach with a leg kicked up most of the time I believe.
I tried some iComforts and didn’t like them. The Optimums felt better, but the Tempurs still felt the best, not as “dead” feeling as the Optimums and especially iComfort.
I live in the Birmingham, AL metro (zip 35040), so I guess I should check out Royal Bedding in Pelham. But their memory foam is Sleep Harmony…I don’t know if that is a good foam or not.
I am just looking for recommendations for types of foam mattresses for my size/sleep position, and also alternatives to Tempur (I can afford it, but would rather not pay that much). The sales people all make their argument of how much I spent on my truck, and how much time I spend in it versus the 1/3 of my life that I will spend sleeping, and blah blah blah the mattress is a better investment b/c of the quality of sleep, and I get it, but nearly $3,000 is a lot compared to my current $800 set.
Any and all input is greatly appreciated.
