do they live up to their hype?
The time has come to replace our mattress. Due to long-term back problems, I have always opted for a firm 'orthopaedic' mattress but I'm wondering whether a memory foam one might be better.
I think that Mouldy has one and finds it too hot in summer but there are brands which claim to minimise this. I don't cope well with either extreme of temperature ( but at least the hot flushes seem to have finished ) and the extra warmth in winter might be welcome.
Does anyone have one of these? Do you boil in the summer? Are they really worth the extra cost? If we do go for one of these, is there anything in particular to look out for or avoid?
<lurks with interest> I've wondered about a mattress topper for camping
I have a Healthbeds Memory Flex 1400. (I just stripped the bed to find that info!) It's a combination of a sprung mattress with a foam topper built in. I have just the mattress on my own metal bedstead.
It's about 5 years old now and I purchased it because it won the Which? award at the time I was doing my research. By the looks of the link it's won a subsequent award because I def purchased pre-2008.
I love my bed, it's really very comfortable indeed.
Thanks for starting this, in similar position myself. I've got an Ikea one which was great, but a bit saggy now (6rs+ old), I was wondering about the more expensive ones, but didn't find a 100% tempur one that comfortable, but I have used and love their anatomical pillows for years.
Reckon I'll give Ikea another go, I've got one of their mattresses on a spare bed and it's great, but they don't seem to make it any more, will check out the one FB mentioned.
LOL @ the trampoline Jj.
It sounds as if it will be well worth looking at some sort of foam/latex dooberry but I can't decide whether this should be a mattress or a topper over a sprung one.
