Which new mattress to buy for super sleep

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created May 18, 2012 at 4:45 PM

Hi guys, Ok I'm going to buy a new king size mattress here in the uk. Mines shot and jn desperate for the good nights sleep I deserve.

Memory foam is supposed to be the best but my brother bought one and chucked it cause it fell into a deep hole in the middle where he laid.

Anyone got any ideas on what's best.

I don't mind paying a bit, I can't find and earthed mattress. I'm going to buy a earthed cover for the top instead.

P.s I plan on not having sex on this one so it lasts long too!! :)

You spend a third of your life in bed. It's one purchase you should never skimp on.

We bought a talalay latex matress about 6 years ago after struggling with a memory foam mattress for a year. I have spinal arthritis and I sleep hot - the latex mattress has been perfect for both of these things. I think the only thing I love more than my bed is my family.

My wife sleeps on medium density natural latex and loves it; I can't stand the thing. The only thing I can sleep on any more is memory foam.

Averaging everything out, if the bed lasts 10 years like they should, $2000 is less than 60 cents per night. I bought a $700 bed, and had to replace it 2 years later.

We purchased a natural latex mattress several weeks ago and love it. It's the first time I have ever been able to sleep on my side without my hip and back aching. The upshot is that it doesn't hold onto heat like memory foam does and makes for a very comfortable sleep!

How romantic... You are not going to carry that hammock with you to the woods, it is way too heavy! It will impede your mushroom gathering results.

Your comment made me wonder... Where are you going to have sex then? Please, do not use the floor or the table - think of your partner's back!

Investigate natural latex. It's made from rubber trees without any chemicals (unlike the tempurpedic foam), and it's delightful to sleep on. I find that I toss and turn much less, so I wake up more rested. It's not cheap, but it lasts much longer than an innerspring mattress, and I consider it an affordable luxury.

A mattress is so personal! Other than the Sleep Number, which is adjustable, I really think you have to try them out for yourself. My hubby and I rented a house on a vacation with a Tempurpedic and we were so excited, but it just didn't work for us. I get hot when I sleep and the way it sucks you down in makes that worse. He is a stomach sleeper and it hurt his lower back (too squishy). You really need to go and try some out to find what you like. I think that's best done at a large department store with lots of selection. We tried some incredible hotel-quality mattresses, but they were out of our price range (I think around $2000 for mattress and boxspring!). We ended up going with a best-quality Ikea set after trying out probably 25 mattresses, and it's been great so far.

Tempur, every time.

If my house burned down today, it's the first thing I'd replace tomorrow.

Latex is a naturally derived biodegradable product. It comes from the rubber tree. Latex is hypo-allergenic, and breathes to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Bacteria, mildew, and mold cannot live in latex foam. All of our 100% natural latex is just that: all natural latex, right from the sap of the rubber tree.

I have a cheaper, fairly thin (6" or so) king sized IKEA mattress, with a 4" thick memory foam topper and a heat dissipating topper to keep the memory foam on (the topper plus the mattress equal the width of a "normal" mattress). Bed is on a platform so it's fairly firm. Out of every bed I've owned (including high end mattresses) I've had the best sleep of my life on it.

The only problem with the thinner mattress on a hard surface, is that it has to be flipped quite often, so every time I change the sheets (weekly), the mattress gets flipped/spun to keep the support levels consistent. Eventually I guess I'll need to get a new mattress, as this one is about 4 years old.

Try some of those LATEX FOAM mattress, stay away from older models, I bought last month for $700 from here http://howdotodo.com/search.php?q=Latex+Foam+Mattresses, and now feel like born again, after only 1 month using. So again: STAY AWAY from old spring mattress!

I bought a Hastens natural mattress here in the UK. It's worth every bit of the extraordinary price. Perhaps go to their site and order a free DVD of their natural mattresses. That'll give plenty of information.

I like my medium firm Dux bed. They have different types of grades... I also like my hammock, havent adjusted to sleep nights in it yet but working on it :) So i can sleep in forrest during summer after workouts or berry/mushroom gatherings.

Latex beds have come a long way, I remember my first purchase because up to now I???m still using the same bed and it???s not because I???m cheap, it???s just that it???s still durable. Why fix something that isn???t broken? My son has been telling me to replace it and order from http://www.mattressesdirect.com.au/ but as long as this bed is ???sleepable???, I???m keeping it.
