    I need a new mattress. Im thinking of getting a memory foam mattress, not something like a tempur pedic, one of the less expensive ones that are shipped.

    It is very appealing for me to spend a couple $$$ and have a mattress at my doorstep, unbox it im done.

    Suggestions? The one Im interested in is https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Q7EPFT4?ref_=pe_623860_70668520&th=1 it seems to have tons of great reviews.

    Wonder if anyone here has something similar?

    We recently got a Helix sleep mattress (it comes shipped like you mentioned). It's like a Purple mattress, or the Ghost mattress.. but better in my opinion. Not only is it a bit cheaper but its custom made for you, and if you have a significant other it lets you custom design each side of the bed for each of your likes. They offer a 100 day guarantee/return period. I really am happy with it.

    I have a friend with a purple bed and she loves it. But the Helix was great for me and my hubby because we have very different sleeping preferences. He likes a firm mattress because he has a bad back, and I like a soft mattress because firm mattresses are hard on my hips.

    we have replaced all of our mattresses with memory foam the prices have come down so much in the last 10 years, but we have put a sheet of ply wood under the mattress as we prefer a firmer mattress, I believe serta is the brand we have and very happy with them, I wasn't aware that the stay well rooms had the foam mattress, the last time we stayed in a stay well room they had traditional mattresses

    I just bought a Sealy Cocoon (one of those shrink wrapped, delivered to your door). It's great, and for under a grand, cant go wrong.

    We got one similar at Amazon in queen size for our RV. Personally I don't love it it was too hard for me to sleep so I bought a softer memory foam topper and it's better. At home we have a 4" Serta memory foam topper (it's blue) and omg that is the most comfy thing ever!!!! It was also more $ than the mattress we bought for the Rv

    We bought an iComfort about a year ago and we love it. It can get a bit warm during the night. I have tried several brand of cooling sheets and find they are cool when you first get under them but don't last all night. I haven't found cooling sheets that are worth the extra money. But the memory foam mattress is the bomb. We also got an adjustable base that's great too. We will never go back to a spring mattress.

    I believe the Tuft & Needle foam mattress was rated #1 mattress by Consumer Reports. When I looked it up it was $750 for a Queen delivered to your door, 100 night trial and free return if you weren't 100% satisfied.

    Keep in mind that, while they are very comfortable at the mattress store, memory foam beds can get much warmer during the night than traditional mattresses.

    While this might be fine, or even preferable, for some, it's a no go for an organic furnace such as myself.

    We have a Novaform Cal king from Costco. A fraction of the price of a Tempur-Pedic, which I think is a Greek word for "pay through the nose." Four years now, no deformation or compression, as comfortable as day one. I'm a cooker and have had none of the overheating problems that are such a part of the story.

    We tried one out, but it didn't work for us so we returned it.
    So it was a short-term memory foam mattress! :D
    I'd actually forgotten about it! Thanks for the reminder! :thumbsup:

    I sold mattresses for years and have a sealy posturepedic.

    i am however going to try to start sleeping on the floor as a way to build character. Large portions of the world do it so why cant I. Going to be out of work for a few months so will start next week. i know it will take alot of adjustment period so dont want to be sleepy all day at work.

    I'm in for $5800 for a TempurPedic Cloud Luxe with Ergonomic base. You are right for not doing this. I love my bed, but if I bought it today instead of 6-7 years ago, I'd have kept $5k in my pocket and just gotten one of the others mentioned on this page. Given that you can now customize it to be soft instead of firm, I'd have "imitated" my current bed for like 80% less.

    I bought one of the first non TempurPedic memory foam mattresses over the Internet fifteen years ago, finally replaced it with another from Ashley's. Look for at least two to four inches of memory foam on top of a twelve inch foam core. TempurPedic brand adds thousands to the price, avoid it.

    I have a memory foam mattress.
    Bought it from Verlo -
    V11 Gel Foam. Almost 3 grand.
    I HATE it. I'll never buy one again.
    It's a guest room mattress now.

    Perhaps it has a selective memory!

    What type of sleeper are you? If you're a stomach sleeper, the memory foam might conform around you (and your mouth). No, you're not going to suffocate, but it might be too much for a conformed fit to be pleasant. Back or side, you might be fine.

    Personally, I want to try the sleep number beds....more choice on firmness.
