We bought one about 5 years ago and I love it. We also bought a new one for our condo and it is only a year old and don't like it at all. It is a hard decision as you can't tell from laying on it for 5 minutes in the store.

Richie, a few years ago we went bed and mattress shopping... I did not want to go to the extreme... the salesman was great. He said now come on you are old enough to get an "adult bed & mattress" I cracked up laughing and I am still grateful for his salesmanship. My back thanks me every night:)Endre

p.s.: the cats are happy too:))

  What I want to know is, why is there a mattress store on every corner in town?  When did that become "a thing"?

I am like you, Richie. It is really hard (no pun intended) to find a mattress that is really comfortable.  My husband and I picked the "medium" firm mattress the last go around, and I really wish after using it we had gone the way of the softer version.  A soft, comfortable mattress which supports is so important for a good night's sleep.

Oh it's so real estate related.  A good nights sleep makes for happy agents/brokers!   Enjoy your new mattress.  We replaced our a few years ago and it's awesome.

We replaced ours a couple years ago and went with a split king so we could each have the firmness we wanted...extra firm for him and firm for me per my chiro. Best decision we ever made. And this Q is real estate related because when you come home after a long day of showing property, you need a good night's sleep.

If you can get a good, comfortable night's sleep, the out for the following day is better.

I bought one last year during the pandemic.  Back then they were cutting production of mattresses as "non-essential" and I got the last one of the model I wanted that was available in the store.  Now a year later supply is up but prices are more than doubled.

I bought Tuft & Needle based on their story and the reviews.  I was astounded when it arrived in a box 2017.  It was an easy process and happy with the results.   I am over laying on matressess in the store for a few minutes to find "the right one"😎

Love it.  It's memory foam by Serata.  Some material that doesn't transfer heat all over or trap it.  It's also fairly soft.  Sleep like a log in it.

Well, to relate this question to another often asked one(just recently in fact) is that buying some things is similar to updating ones headshot.  When the present one becomes too lumpy, maybe it's time to move on. . .   And, hey, that's comparable to real estate too, right?

I think my mattress is fin, but I need to get all the damn kids out of it. Knees, feet, elbows, and shoulders in your back does not make for a great night’s sleep.

I also found it daunting & thought that each store made the same mattress but called it a different name. Confuse the consumer!

When I think about people spending 6, 7 or 8,000 dollars for a mattress it has to do a lot more than just allow me to get some shut eye. I can do that on almost any floor if I have to. Our King size Serta Perfect Sleeper is less than a year old and cost just under a grand.

Richie- I don't even know the name of our mattress but the best sleep I've had was  when we had a featherbed on top of the mattress.

A couple weeks ago, I went to make my bed.  I took the mattress cover off, and discovered a spring trying to protrude from the side.  I hadn't noticed that it was uncomfortable, and my two felines and I had been sleeping well.  However, I remembered back when I had bought it, and realized it could almost be recorded as ancient history.  So, that very morning, I went shopping at our local mattress company.  I tried several, and ended up buying a Serta Perfect Sleeper.  I absolutely adore it!  And, my two felines seem happy too!
