Any experiences with Springwall? (The Brick, Vancouver) Have low budget

Does anyone know if customizing a mattress is better instead? Thinking about doing that in a way where it meets $500.
I can see from your earlier Post #5 , you mention "customizing a mattress" here:
I've found an alternative mattress store I might try out. I think they allow the customer to customize their own mattress and at a more affordable price compared to major retailers. I think they're a local factory direct manufacturer. Problem is, I have no idea how I should go about customizing a mattress. My BMI, surprsingly, is 14.1.
Are you working with your local manufacturer for building your mattress and how is that going? Thanks for the updates .
Haven't done so yet haha. I'm thinking about going tomorrow or soon. I just don't know how to go about constructing it, as in which materials, foam type, foam density, etc.
It says it has high density support foam. I asked them what else it has and they gave me the info:
3 inch memory cooling foam
5 inches of opticore support
Would this be a good purchase for me?

If it feels comfortable to you it may be a good choice for a while, but there's no way to tell how it will maintain its support over time. Sorry I couldn't be more positive with my assessment, just trying to be honest.
That's alright. I totally understand that. I also found this one, it lists the density, memory foam:
Comfort Layer: 4-1/2 HDM - 1.35 lbs.
Base Layer: 5" HD SealySupport Core - 1.5 lbs.
Exclusive Aloe-Fresh fabric technology
Exclusive StayCool fibre blend technology
Sweet Dreams wrote: Densities of 1.35lb and 1.5lb are both lower than desired, but I guess in this price range compromises would be expected. I believe that 1.8lb is generally recommended as a minimum density for good durability for non-plus sized people.
I went to a maufacturing factory store today and I really liked the mattress I was shown. They said it's made of high coil with luxury foam on top. What does luxury foam mean?
All their mattresses are high quality for the price. If you can go to $685, they have FOMA multilayered. But as others said, it is hard to expect good quality for double mattress under $500. The one from the Brick might last 5 years if you are lucky, since your BMI is so low.
