Wonderful forum. I appreciate your efforts to educate instead of market.
I live in the Jackson, Mississippi area and am looking for a king-size mattress for my wife and me.
I weigh 220-240 lbs. and sleep mostly on my back and sometimes on my side.
My wife weighs 130-140 lbs. She sleeps on her side and stomach.
We would like to spend less than $2000 on the mattress, foundation, any needed protector pads, and shipping.
For the last two years, I’ve slept on an “off-brand" (no tags?) Innerspring full-sized, double-sided mattress my wife has had for seven years. The mattress is firm (which I think I like), but is less comfortable than it was when I first started sleeping on it. A full-size mattress is too small for both of us. I wake up with sore legs occasionally.
From 2007-2011, I slept on a Simmons Vanderbilt Felicia Firm Pillowtop Queen Size Mattress purchased from Macy’s. I went into the shopping experience with no knowledge and little time. The mattress was comfortable for about six months. I thought it was barely passable; my wife hated it. It didn’t make the trip with us to the South.
Thanks for your insights.
