Any recommendations? The Sealy has taken a crap after about 10 years. Was a hybrid foam/coil mattress with a gel top which was supposed to help you sleep cool, well it sure as hell didn't. I can sleep on anything, a rock or whatever. She can't, so it needs to be in the middle ground range for plush-firm.

I sleep hot, don't know why but do. Too many reviews on line to get a grasp, plus who knows the percentage of bs vendor=seller reviews nowadays.

Want to keep it under a grand if I can. Mattress only. 2 people at work swear by sleep number but I can't see myself dropping $2,500 for something she may not like in 30 days anyway.

Queen size

thanks a bunch.

me too. Had it 6 months and very happy with the purchase.

They have quite a few retail locations and are in Targets as well. We stopped by a store then bought online. Painless process all around.

not really, out of 52 mattresses at costco.com got it widdled down to 6 that may interest me. i'll go over a grand but don't believe it is necessary really. paid $1,700 for the one in the room now. reviews seem to lean on as long as it isn't the bottom shelf $300 one the rest seem to average 7-10 year life span. and warranties appear to be complete bs, none of them will actually ever honor a warranty.

For under a grand? Thought you were baller blue.

Stearns and foster pillowtop fellas. Most comfortable bed you will ever sleep on and you will sleep well knowing you won’t need to shop for a bed again for 15 years.

After lots of research and debate considering all the options for mail order foam mattresses, we just got a Tuft and Needle. For the price we paid, we are very satisfied. It is very comfortable, but it is a little bit softer than I would prefer. The only reason I would not buy again is because I prefer a mattress on the firmer side. Although soft, it is still very supportive, and I sleep well on it with no back pain or anything. They offer a 30 day return policy if you don't like it, and we chose to keep it. Definitely hard to beat in that price range, but if you have a grand to spend there are probably better options...
