Re: Sleep Number Bed

Well we decided to purchase a mattress topper and delay the mattress purchase for a bit.

Good call. I don't think you will be sorry.

Re: Sleep Number Bed

T, I have had one for six years -- I changed from a water mattress (not a typical waterbed). I haven't had a regular mattress in well over 15 years. I had higher priced regular mattresses, but found them uncomfortable after a few years (they seemed to lose their springyness)-- perhaps I could have found a different model that would have worked for me, but I decided to buy the water mattress (it had separate coils and each coil could be filled with different amounts of water). I really enjoyed the feel, but didn't enjoy the heavy weight of water when I considered moving the bed or moving a coil, etc. When I moved from one house to another and had to empty the coils, I decided to look for something light -- found Sleep Comfort and liked it. I worried about how long the air pump would work, but it is still doing fine after 6 years, and a lot of changes -- some nights I want firmer, some nights I want softer... The price is steep, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone because of the price AND the fact that a bed is a very personal decision -- we spend so much time there that it's important to be comfortable. Taking your time and trying out cheaper options makes sense. What works for one person may not work for another. I would ask you one question -- why were you considering some other type of mattress -- is there something that bothers you about the traditional type? If so, keep reading about and trying different kinds -- there is probably something new being created right now, and maybe it will be right for you.

Re: Sleep Number Bed

Sleeps never been a problem for me, my wife claims I could sleep on a washing line. Now keeping awake, there's a different thing altogether.
