    I have a Dormia bed which is the same thing (but much cheaper). I absolutely LOVE it.

    Can you give us a roundabout price range? They have a few different mattresses, which one did you choose?

    I don't have a Tempurpedic, but I do have an 8" thick memory foam one from Brookstone. It cost about $2500 (Xmas gift from my uncle who has more money than I'll ever see in my life) and is nice but I wouldn't personally buy it over a regular coil mattress. What took some getting used to for me was how the foam holds body heat and I felt like I had a fever the first few nights I slept on it.

    I'd rather spend $2500 on a normal coil spring mattress and a brand new bed and nightstand.

    Those one don't have a latex core or lycocell to allow for circulation. Most of the original Tempurpedics don't. Its why you got hot. I never get hot in mine and I'm in SWFL

    Its one of the best purchased I've ever made and I went from a costly spring based mattress. Never again.

    No kidding? Yeah mine is all the same foam density throughout, there is no "core" so to speak. I didn't know there was a difference.

    Oh well...my girlfriend's sister loves the bed (don't get any ideas...I let her stay in it when she was housesitting...I am not banging both of them) but can't afford a new one...hmm maybe I will sell it to her and then get one with a core!

    Thanks for the info!

    Yep. That was the problem wiht the first ones as well as not having a top cushion layer. The new ones have a softer top as the first layer (2-3 inches of lycocell) then the memory foam underneath. You get all the form fitting of memory foam with a a bit softer top layer and better air circulation.


    The first ones for the most part were just blocks of memory foam which trapped heat.

    Bobo or anyone else who has a memory foam mattress, this is my concern, after time (years) will the mattress loose its effect? Lose its softness, memory how ever you want to put it? I need to purchase a new mattress BAD and I looked into kingsdown, temper, but this 1 sounds better.......

    I picked up a 2 in pad from costco to put on top of out mattress its great and it only cost 100 $, I have been thinking about getting 4 more and stacking them, only 500$ for a 10 in thick mattress, I have a waterbed frame that we have our mattress in so they don't move around.

    bioman, what's the nature of the challenge , is it just hard to move around or something?
    been so long since I had sex, I don't want to add unnecessary roadblocks!

    LOL, well if you are on your knees or hands and knees, you keep sinking into the bed. So if she's in the "doggy style" position, she doesn't sink as much as I do because I'm only on my knees..We keep having to readjest the angle/postion of the dangle if ya know what I mean, hint hint, wink wink, nudge nudge.

    Other than that, we love it the bed.

    I have herd alot of good things about the select comfort beds. The one that has air in it. The only complaint i hear about the foam matresses is how they retain heat.

    I used to have a memory foam matress. That was absolutely brilliant. I never woke up with back or neck pain, even if I had trained really hard the previous day. Ok well, there were a couple of times that I really over did it and the matress helped. The cost is way overpriced if you buy the tempurpedic stuff. I'm not affiliated in any way with the following, but as a previous customer, I can recommend memoryfoam dot net if you don't mind putting the matress together yourself. You'll save a bundle for all the supps

    This is the best bed you can buy. I have the King size version of this and will never own a different matteress again. It's a ***** to move though, around 210lbs. and very awkward to handle.

    Bump to this...I just got a memory foam mattress this past week. I got one because I wake up every morning due to an achey back. I have not had this problem starting this week.

    Symbol Mattress

    I got a queen setup on sale for $998. This company doesn't advertise and that's supposedly why it's cheaper (less overhead).

    Do these beds work too if you sleep on your stomach?

    I don't know why, but I just can't sleep on my back.

    I usually sleep on my stomach or my side although mainly on my stomach.

    I do tend to have stiff neck and shoulders but I'm pretty sure it's mainly from just stress and tenseness rather than my sleeping habits. But if one of these mattresses can help with that I'd be interested in looking into getting one eventually.

    No, these mattresses will not help you. Sleeping on your stomach is the worst in terms of chiropractic health...it's likely no mattress will improve your comfort for long.

    I see haha. Well I doubt I'll be able to make myself comfortable sleeping on my back anytime soon. Just something about it doesn't feel right, like when I fall asleep on my stomach it feels like I'm drifting down into the mattress haha.

    My back and everything is fine. It's just my shoulder and neck muscles are stiff due to tension rather than the bones themselves causing discomfort.

    I have Temp. pillows and love them. They definitely improved my sleep. In the future, I imagine I will buy the bed itself as well.

    i have one of the select comfort beds... it is the best bed i've ever had. would never get anything else. its pretty damn cool how you have adjust both sides of the bed as far as how firm you want it, and i've had it for the last two years with no problems.

    I read a thread on fatwallet.com and bought a 3" tempurpedic top cover for $120. 10% off, $1 shipping.

    I like mine alot, it was so large I folded it in half and have a 6". It isn't really good for sex but for sleep its awesome.

    --- edit ----

    I bought the tempurpedic top cover for $120 from overstock -- fatwallet.com gave the 5% cashback and 10% off, $1 shipping.
