Thanks to your site here I've narrowed my shopping choices down to 1) The Mattress Factory in Ft. Worth or 2) a retailer that carries the Noah's Manfufacturing mattress (I'm not near Houston where they are based). I called and they easily shared local retail outlets and that he recommends the 5300 or 5100 Night series, just fyi if you have any comments. Anyway, do you have a preference for one of these companies over the other? The reviews about Noah's mattresses seem overwhelmingly positive but that's why I'm asking.
We are currently sleeping on an approximately 15 yr. old Kingsdown Beauty Rest Elite which is still very, very comfortable, however, it is a queen size that I've just temporarily put on our king size bed frame after throwing out the king mattress due to eventual back pains from it after so many years. Anyway, with the hubby and two dogs I need my king size back so everyone has room! I'm ultimately looking for a great value under $900 which I didn't think was possible originally when I just started out shopping at the big name brand stores.
Thanks and I'll wait for your response before setting out!

Hi mojoman,

Anyway, do you have a preference for one of these companies over the other? The reviews about Noah's mattresses seem overwhelmingly positive but that's why I'm asking.


Unfortunately I can't feel what you feel on a mattress and there are too many unknowns, variables, and personal preferences involved for me (or anyone) to make specific suggestions for someone else for either a specific company or a mattress based on specs (either yours or a mattress) or "theory at a distance (see post #2 here ).

"Brand shopping" is never the most effective approach to choosing a mattress because the specifics of a mattress are always more important than the name of the company that makes it (see post #5 here ) and I would also be very cautious about using reviews (either positive or negative) as a meaningful source of guidance about which mattress is "best for you" (see post #13 here ).

There is more about the most important parts of the "value" of a mattress purchase in post #13 here that can help you make more meaningful comparisons between mattresses regardless of the name of the company but deciding on which mattress is "best for you" will always come down to ...

1. Testing for suitability and PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences)
2. Checking for the type and durability of the materials to make sure there are no weak links inside the mattress.
3. Comparing for value based on all the other parts of your personal value equation that are most important to you.

In most cases I would consider more than one option (or store) anyway so that you have more than one "finalist" to compare and choose between and as long as you can find out the specifics of the materials and components that are inside any of their mattresses you are considering then both of them would be well worth including in your testing and research.

Hi Phoenix,

Please Help!

My husband did a lot of research on latex mattresses and felt that was the best choice for us. My husband tosses and turns a lot and I have always struggled with lower back pain. Stumbling upon this website (thank you) we were able to go out on the hunt in the D/FW area. We visited City Mattress Factory, The Mattress Factory, Sovn, and Urban Mattress. We stayed an hour at each place testing out mattresses. Trying to stay within a budget, as well as buy local, and have the bed made in-house we went with City Mattress Factory.

We settled on the Covington Ultima-Latex/Gel in the Medium. They only had Firm of this model on the showroom floor and felt it was too hard, so had them order us the Medium. We also thought the Gel topper would make it more plush. We tested it out for a month, and I found my lower back pain diminished. However, I was now getting intense upper back pain (between the shoulder blades).

We visited the showroom again. Spent 2 hours there. We exchanged the above bed for the Royal Touch Latex. Not sure on the firmness, but softer than the Medium we had before. The bed is softer to the touch which I like. Has more of a pillowy effect. However, I'm still having upper back pain. It's seemed to have moved. Where it was between the shoulder blades, now it's my lats. I'm also experiencing hip pain.

What gives? I'm not sure in what direction we need to go. They don't have very many options at City Mattress Factory or The Mattress Factory. And when I tried to voice my aches and pains and to help me please to Norm at City Mattress, he wasn't much help.

I really just want to have a good night's sleep with no pain. As well as not waste all this money.

Any advice would be most helpful and grateful.

Thanks in advance,
Jeanie

P.S. I'm a small/petite female and a side/back sleeper

Hi justjeannie,

Unfortunately I can't feel what you feel or see you on the mattress and I don't have enough information about you or either mattress you tried to be able to guess what may be happening or the reasons behind your experience. Trying to "diagnose" the reasons for any particular person's back pain or discomfort on a forum would be much like a doctor trying to diagnose any health issue with very limited information and without being able to see you or assess you in person and in most cases with these types of situations I am mostly dependent on the information that you provide about whether you think your mattress is too soft or too firm or "how" it is too soft or too firm (in the comfort layers or in the support layers).

It would also be helpful to have a reference point of a mattress that you have slept well on in the past (with as much specific details as possible) and since I'm not familiar with either mattress and I don't know the specifics of the materials and components in each of them it would also be helpful if you could provide more specific information about each of them as well (see this article ) which may also provide some additional insights into the reasons for your "symptoms" and experience.

Having said that ... I can link you to more information that may help with some of the detective work that may be necessary to try and figure out the reasons for the symptoms you are experiencing.

Each person can have different reasons for very similar symptoms so the first step would be to decide on whether you believe your mattress is too soft or too firm. Post #2 here may be helpful if you believe your mattress is too firm and post #4 here may be helpful if you believe your mattress is too soft. If you aren't sure then post #2 here and the posts it links has more information about the most common symptoms on a mattress that may help with the detective work that may be necessary to identify the underlying cause or causes behind what you are experiencing.

I also don't know how long you slept on either mattress but if it's less than a few weeks then the best idea may be to "do nothing" at first so that your mattress has a chance to break in and you have a chance to adjust to a new sleeping surface. The posts I linked include some "non mattress" suggestions and one of the most common reasons for upper body symptoms are a pillow issue so it may be worth experimenting with a different pillow to see how it affects your symptoms as well.

The first step though outside of the non mattress suggestions would be to provide as much detail as you can about your mattresses and any additional details that you can about your experience on each of them which may help me to make some "educated guesses" about the types of changes that may be helpful and whether your symptoms are pressure related or alignment related (which is probably more likely).
