Looking for advice on Mattresses

28 Feb 2020 09:54 #11 by Ford
Laying on the Hotel Collection (maybe about 15 minutes each time) seems fairly firm and so I think the back should be well supported and the neck should be fine with a proper pillow.

The Kingsdown that we looked at was similar as it is a tight top. They seem to focus on their spring count (~2700). It felt comfortable but I would say the edge collapsed a little further then the one at the Bay when sitting on the edge. It is hard to tell without having them side by side though.
We also looked at a Simmons Beautyrest at Sleep Country and it seemed firm as well.
As far as price most of the ones we have looked at have been in the same price range. I have resolved myself to believe that this is only a temporary purchase....hopefully it will last and be comfortable for 5 years and if that is the case it works out to $0.90 each per night (based on 335 sleeps nights per year over the 5 years). I used to think that mattresses and appliances etc would last a life time but that is wishful thinking.

Thank you!

We have ordered the Hotel Collection King set with the Embrace frame. I will update after a few months to see how it is performing.
