Hi eastib,

Thanks for the kind words and for the heads up about the City Mattress link as well :).

They must have changed their website sometime this year. It's the same manufacturer and I've changed the link in the Dallas list here along with all the other forum posts that had the old URL.

I'm looking forward to any feedback you have the chance to share after your visits.

Headed to mattress factory tomorrow. I'm a big guy and was looking for a mattress with 12-14" thickness but it looks like mattress factory maxes out at 10. Will report back.

Hi Doug,

They can do custom builds but I would first start with what you can test in person.

I'm looking forward to your feedback after your visit.

Hey Phoenix,

Looking for a rather firm mattress, and was headed towards the Mattress Factory's Barrington Foam and Latex mattress, but the wife is very hesitant as she is allergic to latex. What do you think of their Elegance series?

Hi darkarchon,

the wife is very hesitant as she is allergic to latex


If her allergy is type IV it would likely be fine. If her allergy is Type I then I would certainly avoid all latex. There is more about latex allergies in post #2 here .

What do you think of their Elegance series?


In terms of how suitable it may be for your body type and sleeping positions ... I would make sure you do some careful testing of course (with both of you on the mattress) to make sure it's a good match for you in terms of PPP and that you are OK with any motion transfer of an innerspring with helicals.

In terms of quality I would need to know the specifics of what was inside it (see this article ) to make any meaningful comments about it because I don't know the density of the foam they use but the cotton and the innerspring are both good quality components. Not surprisingly the price seems very reasonable as well.

Hi pony66,

It sounds like you made a great choice and I can always tell when someone has been doing some good research when they know to go into a showroom with their pillows!

Congratulations on your new mattress :)

I'm looking forward to your feedback when you've had the chance to sleep on it for a bit.

Phoenix,
Wow excellent site, so much information! In fact so much, I feel my head is going to explode. I am going to try to visit a few of the places in the DFW area. For sure we plan on visiting Sleep Craft Mattress Company & the Mattress Factory. I feel this website is going to save me big money and much frustration. :-)

Hi weakstick,

I'm glad you found us ... and welcome :)

You've probably seen it already but just in case ... I would make sure you've read the tutorial post here which has all the more important information about choosing a mattress that is "best for you" all in one place.

I'm looking forward to your feedback and finding out what you end up choosing.

I'm just reporting back from a couple of weeks ago!

We got the 24/28/24 latex mattress at the Mattress Factory, and we are very pleased. Finally I am not waking up with a sore back every day! We have been sleeping on it for a little over a week, and we have no regrets.

Peter was very helpful, and we did get the discounts (coupon and website). It's kind of what I call a "Twilight Zone-ish" place in an OLD industrial area just southeast of downtown Fort Worth. No one shopping for a mattress would ever come across the store accidentally.

Thanks so much for the recommendation :).
