After much research and leg work, my fiance` and I bought a EDIT air bed. During the trials, she liked the tempur style beds and I liked Sleep Numbers c3 mattress the best. Granted we couldnt take them home, but since I'm the one with back problems my lovely lady let me make the final decision.
Ok, so I did not like that part but the price seemed worth the risk. The comparable SC bed was around 2200.00. My real skepticism is that I much preferred the low end SC bed to the thicker ones, but more research proved I probably should buy thicker for more support. We ordered over Presidents Day weekend and it's arriving tomorrow. I will let you guys know about setup, 'what's in the box', and most importantly the quality and how it sleeps.
Everything I read suggests that pain sufferers either love tempur mattresses or air beds. The tempur mattresses remided me of lying in clay. I loved the adjustable frame, but we could not afford the extra 1600. I was also worried that I'd have a hard time deciding which firmness would sleep the best for me. In the past pillow tops have felt best but maybe firm is what I need. Mattress decisions are so difficult when pain is involved. My last spring mattress took me a month to decide on. It's sagging bad in the middle, time for a change. Cheers all, I'll let you guys know about the experience. This forum has already provided me with a lot of information, I hope this gives a little back!
