Purchasing a Mattress & Frame

Insomniac finally sleeps after a new mattress purchase.

I have been doing a lot of research on beds and toppers because I could never sleep for more than 2 hours max.

So I originally bought a 4 inch Tempurpedic memory foam topper. A little expensive but I thought it would be worth it. NOT for me, I couldn't roll over or get in and out of bed, it would grab me and way too firm. I tried the different style mattresses from innerspring, memory foam, air coils and trueform. I was also nervous in making such a large purchase and not getting the right mattress for my back and arthritis problems. I finally found it!
One word, LATEX!

With all the controversy over the prices and names of the same mattress at different stores, I actually had a great buying experience.
I live in Las Vegas and the mattress competition is fierce. One store would call the mattress (SpringFree Latex) Garden Vine and the next store would call the same mattress Beachside.
I did price comparison and printed out estimates from the different stores even from Internet. So instead of paying $3599 original price I bought it for $1150. I did the same thing for purchasing the adjustable frame with massage. Originally priced at $1799 for Queen size I got them down to $1399. They even gave me free set-up, delivery, no sales tax and a free mattress pad. They delivered it on Sunday afternoon.

Sorry for the long post, I got too much sleep (almost 6 hours straight) because for the first time I didn't wake up in pain! This was such a good experience with the company I purchased from and the final product, I had to share.

If anyone is shopping for a new bed or frame I will be glad to pass on information I've discovered.

Sleep well, Take care of you.

  • Please pm me any info that you have on the mattress that you purchased and maybe even a web site where I can look into it, if you know of any. I purchased a very expensive "specialty" bed that is advertised on TV, by a celebrity, and I hate it. That was $2,500. down the drain! I don't even know what a latex bed is? Can you explain?
  • Hi,
    Sent you PM.
    I hope you are still within your warranty maybe you can exchange your bed?
    Take care of you,

  • Hi,
    I'm new to this forum. Just found I have a dessicated disk
    between L4 and L5 and had epidural inj of cortisone a week
    ago. Still waiting to feel better. I have a Tempur Ped bed and now after 7 years feel I can't sleep as well. It seems
    too firm and it hurts my hips. If I don't use pillows, I might as well forget trying to get comfortable. It's been helpful to read everyone's suggestions. I just can't believe
    how many "young" folks have such serious back problems and have been though so much. As a retired nurse, it touches my heart to hear what some have gone through. I'm going to try
    a multi layer latex foam mattress and see if it helps. I let you know the results.
    Bless you all....
