MashupDad and I are finally going to bite the bullet and invest in a new mattress. Ours has been terrible for years and although I’ve tried a number of temporary fixes (and even wrote about how to fix a sagging mattress here!), none has proven to be a long term solution. The mattress topper from Kohl’s did help for a while as a cost-effective short term fix, but has already squished down after about a year of use.
So we spent most of today looking at mattresses, and my head is now swimming — and spent way too long at the sleep number store (see snazzy brochure above), where we learned that we have about the opposite opinion on mattress firmness. I like a super firm mattress, he likes a very soft mattress, and never the twain shall meet. And what’s up with nothing being comparable from store to store?
We bought a cheap memory foam mattress from Amazon a few years ago because we had nothing for houseguests. That whole process was fascinating even just to watch it expand out of the box and it’s been great for short term use (with compliments from family who have slept on it). But, I think we’re going for something more supportive here that will hopefully last a while and help my aching back. 🙂 (Although these Nectar Sleep ones are interesting and have good reviews + $100 off with code NECTAR100, and Eight Sleep mattresses are also interesting with multiple different layers, bed warming technology (!), and a sleep tracker.)
Do you love your mattress?
So let’s talk about mattresses: Do you have one that you love? One that has lasted a long time? Been worth the investment? Am I the only one who hates this whole process?
