What do you know about Carolina Bedding Direct? I know that they sell mattresses called Five Star that they say are made for them by Serta. Their pillow top Mattresses sell for $150.00, $250.00, $350.00 up to $950.00. What is the quality of their matresses?

Hi miwillia,

As you mentioned they sell Serta Mattresses under the Five Star label.

A mattress is only as good as the construction, design, and quality of the materials inside it and the biggest issue with Five Star is that it isn't likely that you will be able to find out the quality of the materials and components in the mattress which means that you won't be able to make meaningful comparisons with other mattresses or make informed buying decisions.

I would tend to avoid any mattress manufacturer that isn't transparent where you aren't able to find out the type and quality of the materials inside it unless of course you are in the very lowest budget ranges where durability isn't an issue or the mattress is for temporary or occasional use. If you are able to find out the information you need then you will be able to asses its quality and make comparisons with other mattresses.

This is particularly true with the density of any polyfoam or memory foam in the mattress, and in the upper layers especially, which is the single most important factor it the durability and useful life of the mattress. Without knowing this information you would be making a blind purchase based on comfort alone without regard to durability or how long the mattress will last.

Post #1 here is a basic mattress shopping tutorial and has all the basic information, steps, and guidelines that can help you make more informed and better quality and value choices.
