Hi Arrielle,

I decided to buy a mattress form Original Mattress Factory,
Regency Sapphire
www.originalmattress.com/regency-mattres...fort-choices#regency


Thanks for letting us know what you ended up deciding ... and congratulations on your new mattress :)

I hope you have the chance to share your comments and feedback when you receive it and have had the chance to sleep (and sit) on it for a bit.

Do you have any info about the durability of this mattress?


I would need to know the information listed here to make any meaningful comments but if you can provide the information and post it on the forum I'd be happy to make some comments about the quality and durability of the materials and the mattress as a whole. As far as I know OMF doesn't use any polyfoam that is lower than 1.5 lb density so if this is the case then it would meet the quality/durability guidelines here for a two sided mattress (as long as you flip it on a regular basis ... see here ) and there would be no weak links in the mattress.

To be honest I avoid internet reviews because every product on earth seems to get 90-95% of the maximum number of starts and the reviewers are happy with them. Sometimes I wonder if these reviews are honest.


You are preaching to another member of the same choir as Jeff when it comes to using mattress reviews as a reliable source of information about a mattress purchase which is why I so often warn against it (see post #13 here ) :)

Did you get the poly deck unit (351P)? This will tend to be better for the mattress than the link spring (351).

Thank you Jeff for your time.

I have not bought any product yet. I am just inquiring the market. Do you advise for the poly deck unit instead of a link spring? I thought that a link spring is more durable.
I saw today the poly deck unit and it is made of a fabric, attached to a wire by some springs / coils and has two metal bars that are supposed to support the mattress.

I am concerned about the following:
1. that the fabric is going to break relatively easy ( because of heat / humidity and weight. I weight 150 pounds)
2. That I am going to feel the two metal bars that support the mattress. I plan to sit on the bed ( to read and write) not only to sleep (perfectly horizontal)

I can see that you know a lot about this bed. What do you recommend and why?

About internet reviews.... I am the old fashion type of person from an "old fashion" country : I need to see / touch / feel what I buy.

Hello Phoenix,
I bought before another mattress from OMF and I liked it very much.
I would buy the same type for this daybed but it is too thick. I believe OMF makes decent products. At least the Luxury Orthopedic that I bought previously is very very comfortable AND with a lot of support, And does not heat your body :)
Maybe they should pay me since I advertise their products that much .
:)

I will place the order once I am sure which platform to use for the daybed: the spring link or the poly deck unit.

I certainly agree with you that OMF makes some good quality/value mattresses and they are also transparent about the materials they use inside them which is the reason that I include them as one of the better options or at least "possibilities" in all the forum lists where they have a local store.

Sounded like you bought something already.

I've always preferred the polydeck over the link. Both the link and the polydeck have the same two bars running from side to side and the same perimeter side rails - the difference is in the network placed on top. The polydeck is a canvas-type material that is very strong. It is quieter than the link spring and tends to flex less, and there is less chance of a snag. Link springs are a throwback item and really more appropriate for the older cotton mattresses for which they were more commonly used. Many of my clients find that both the polydecks and link spring units sag more in the middle than they prefer and they end up placing a sheet of plywood on top of them, or a Bunkie board. It would be up to your experience.

Hello Jeff,
I see what you are saying and it makes plenty sense.

On some reviews on Amazon someone was talking about this Doral Bed as having slats. Would bed stats be better than the polydeck or the link spring?
If yes, are you aware of any store that sells this bed with slats?

Thank you.

I personally would prefer a nice solid daybed using a well-secured slat network. This would provide a firm base for the mattress and also allow for air circulation.

If yes, are you aware of any store that sells this bed with slats?

There are thousands of daybeds out there and it's not something I follow, so you might be able to get advice from others on the forum.

Hi Arrielle,

While I'm even less familiar with the bedframe than Jeff ... as far as I know Leggett & Platt only supplies the linked spring or the polydeck options that Jeff mentioned ( see here ). I suspect that the comment in the reviews was probably referring to either a slatted bunkie board (see post #4 here and post #4 here for more about bunkie boards) or perhaps a slat roll such as this that they purchased separately (although if you were to use something like this you would need to make sure that they fit well and that they would stay secure on the bedframe without shifting).

Thank you Jeff and Phoenix. As soon as I buy the bed and I used for some weeks, I will post here a review and some pictures.
I believe others would benefit from it.

Hi! Renewing this topic from a few years ago, as many of the other daybed-related posts are at least as old, and I'd love some updated suggestions/recommendations!

Briefly, we have a daybed for which we need a new twin mattress. This is going in the family/rec room so will be mostly used for extra seating, or when our pre-teen kid has friends sleeping over, for overflow at Thanksgiving, etc.. We do have a dedicated 'regular' guest room, so we're trying to keep the cost low with these usual uses in mind, and we don't want it to be too thick (probably 8" max height, pref. closer to 6"). I'd also like it to be light enough to be easily moved into another room, up the stairs, etc.. I was considering DIY with 2 or 3 of the 2-3" latex toppers on top of each other, but wasn't sure how practical that is for a daybed and how much edge support those would provide (which seems more important when it's used for seating).

Thanks in advance for any advice!
