I fucking LOVE this!

I bought a 4" mattress topper at Walmart for $100. Worth every penny.

I love Tempur-Pedic. Is the memory foam topper like those? If so, you'll sleep better than you have since you were an itty-bitty baby. They rock.

I bought a 4" mattress topper at Sam's Club a couple years ago, but I hate it now. It lost its memory more quickly than I expected and made the bed even less comfortable than before. It can help for awhile, but its not a long term solution when you need a new mattress. My. Mattress was an S&F double sided pillow top-which was awful. The bottom side that had the spare pillow top broke down quickly and caused lump, the top pillow top pillow basically did the same thing to the foam topper before the springs decided to break down as well.

On an odd, somewhat related note, I have a buddy who bought an entire mattress of memory foam, and after a month his wife refused to sleep on it because it got too uncomfortable, he refused to replace it, and she left him soon after that and eventually divorced him. It's crazy how small things can cause divorces.

Had a pillow made of it once. My thermostat has always run high and the pillow would trap the heat. I'd wake up with my whole head sweating. But it was comfortable the short time I used one

FAXWe've had ours for 10 years now. The stuff is fricking amazing. No dents or formed spots. It's hard to explain to someone how comfortable they are. Money well spent.

I get a new one every 18 months.

4inches on top of any kind of mattress. Shits perfect.

The few ladies I've been lucky enough (and unlucky enough!) to have over since I moved down here all comment on how comfortable it is.

You realize you're supposed to flip and turn that mattress regularly? That allows the "spare" pillow top to share the wear and tear.

I believe so. Although, due to the fact that I purchased it from Wally World, I'm betting the quality isn't as good as TP.

I don't know ... it probably is.

They really are nice. It's helped my back immensely and sometimes I dream about being one of the few chosen angels floating through the clear, blue sky on a pure white, puffy cloud with a couple of bazooka guns and a rocket launcher I use to blast innocent, earth-bound people to hell and gone with no warning whatsoever.

Memory foam is overhyped and wears down tremendously over time. Also, it doesn't give you near the support it claims. If you want a good bed with the perfect match of comfort and support, that is anti-microbial, hypo-allergenic, and gives you about twice the support of memory foam, 3 times the durability, and more comfort then go look into latex foam and I promise you will never buy anything else.

Yup, and it doesn't work. It still breaks down. It's the reason Sealy and S&F no longer make double sided pillow tops.

Purchased a bed the other week, the sales lady said that flipping the mattress
regularly wears it out 10 times faster then normal. I was thinking WTF!?
But i just smiled and listened to her politely.

sleep number bed.

One of these days, my wife and I are going to need to get a Sleep Number. I fucking HATE our bed. Too soft. The wife likes to sleep on something akin to air - no support whatsoever. I would very possibly be comfortable on plywood.

Yes sir, not many big companies are into the latex. Simply because it lasts too long and typically doesn't break down at all. I actually work for a mattress factory that use to sell memory foam a little bit right whenever it got real popular but now it's latex all the way.

So,Tempur-Pedic or sleep number bed? Those seem to be the choices for most comfortable nowadays. What do yall think?

That is one of the positive things about latex. If you check out that website you can see the latex foam has holes throughout due to the molding process so it breaths very well and stays much more cool.

I have heard great things about both products.

The only con I have heard about Tempur-pedic is that it sleeps hot for those whose body sweats real easily.

The only con I have heard about Sleep Number is psychological if you are a "tight ass" in that you are paying anywhere from 1500-3k for a glorified air mattress.

Latex foam is very durable and will last a long time. I know that on ours we put a 15 year warranty. First 5 years 100% money back or repair, after that we will repair it for free or it is pro-rated otherwise.

the iComforts are warrantied for 25 YEARS. And the first 15 of that is full. Only allows a 3/4" depression, as opposed to spring mattresses which allow 1.5"

we did not like the feel of the latex mattresses we tried. for one thing, the motion transfer is much higher than memory foam.

can't speak for Tempur or the other brands, but I'm a warm sleeper and the iComfort and it's design don't cause me any issues.
