What bed do you sleep on?

Recommended Posts

Not sure where to put this but here goes. The wife and I are in the market for a new bed. We are leaning toward a Tempurpedic foam bed. Possible sleep number. Let me here the good and bad opinions.

Thanks

Andy

My wife and I shopped around a lot...the Sleep Number was a possibility but I didn't like that it feels like there's a board in the middle. We slept in one at a Bed and Breakfast and the dang thing was not comfy!

We ended up going to the Original Mattress Factory and got a great bed. We bought a Full Size as well from there and it's just great. Good prices too and if you want more or less stuffing/pillow top they can do that for you no problem.

That's my two cents worth...

We finally dropped the $ on a Tempurpedic and cant believe we waited so long to do it. Since we bought ours. My parents and brother have bought one too. I love this bed...

This is really wierd. I slept on a memory foam mattress for three years. While i thought it was the most comfortable thing ever......every night I had to get up and go to the bathroom. Thought I was just getting old. Since I've gone back to my Serta (yum yum yum,I sleep through the night.

Yea, I know-don't ask me but it's the truth.

We have the sleep number and we both love it. We have the king size and it does have the hard strip down the middle but we have gotten used to that. Now when we stay in a another bed we are so happy to come home to our own bed.

Sleep # here too. We love it.

I've never slept on one, but have heard that the foam mattresses can retain body heat quite a bit. Don't know 1st hand though.

Sleep # bed here too with the pillow top.

Had this bed for over 10 years and never woke up with a back ache. Went to bed with a few, but they were gone in the morning. It's a blessing in itself that each side can be set to different settings. Keeps both of us happy...she's a 30 and i'm a 65 grin

Thanks for the replies and keep them coming.

I have also heard that the foam beds tend to be a little warmer to sleep on. Anyone experience this first hand?

I've got a queen Serta no flip mattress and it has been great. No sagging and it is going on 10 years. Then again I sleep alone so that might have to do with the longevity. sleep I've thought about the Temporpedic and sleep number, but don't want to shell out the $$ now.

I am real sensitive to the heat thing too and that was my biggest concern with the Tempurpedic, but I have been happy with it so far. Its maybe a bit warmer than a traditional matress, but for me it wasnt really a noticeable change.

Sleep Number! If you agree exactly on beds then you don't need it I guess, but my wife likes a 25-30 and I'm a 60-65 so we couldn't agree on any single bed but this one.

I must have been one of the few who didn't care for the sleep number, so we went to Original Matt. Factory. Great bed for the price and you must flip them, don't buy one that claims you don't need to flip.

We have the Serta no flip and won't get one again. It was fantastic for the first year or so, then started to sag. Maybe we didn't rotate (front to back, not side to side) it enough but for what it cost IMO it should last longer. The next bed we get we will look real hard at the sleep # beds.

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
