Mattress woes
We've had our $400 mattress for 3 years and initially thought it good quality. Indeed, it was great to start with. The springs are interconnected down the length of the bed, so you don't end up with a dip in the middle of the bed, causing you to roll into each other.

But that doesn't mean there's no dip at all, oh no! It only took a year or two for dips to form beneath us. An uncomfortable hollow on the edge of the bed.

Now I learn that our lovely mattress is really just a low-to-mid-range model. A friend just bought a new mattress to rectify their sleeping woes. The cost?


Holy fuck, that's expensive. Needless to say, we won't be buying a top of the line mattress any time soon.

We have to do something, though. My back is getting worse by the day. (By the night, actually.) Too much longer sleeping in a curve, and I foresee spending a mattress' worth on chiropractic or physio bills... :-(

I just spent $1,299 on a new mattress but I could have gotten a good one for $800 - $1,000. Don't ask what I spent on a full bedroom suite of furniture though.... -oops-

Hey Lisa, how much did you spe- Oh, never mind. ;-)

Well, fortunately we don't need a full bedroom suite. But I can probably justify spending $1000 on a good mattress. Time to start looking!

Good Knowledgeable Article

I am just shocked to read this article. Your experience with the mattress shows that one should be careful before purchasing such costly mattress. Actually I also have an idea of puchasing a mattress. This article has really opened my eyes. Thanks for sharing your experience.
