We got a custom mattress from The Mattress Factory. Firm and soft and the same time. We are very pleased with it and would recommend The Mattress Factory for your purchase.

We got a custom one. 6 inch of 36, 4 in of 28, with 2 in of 22 on top. I think Peter added some more in there somewhere as the mattress measures 14 inches over all.

Very comfeeee

Reb

Wife and I prefer a firm mattress so we tried out the king floor model which Larry said was 36/36/36. It wasn't as firm as I expected but we liked it. The firm innerspring bed was too soft. I hope we are pleased long term with the thickness and firmness we selected.

The mattress factory doesn't take credit cards so I suppose I'll use a cashiers check. Their online pay requests access to my checking account and I wasn't keen to share that.

Hi Doug,

Congratulations on your new mattress :)

You are certainly making a firm choice by most people's standards but of course you are also a big guy who prefers and likely needs firmer materials. I'm looking forward to your feedback when you've had the chance to sleep on it.

We have had the Mattress Factory bed a week now and I'm pretty happy with it. Even at 36/36/36 it still feels a little squishy to me but I have less pain when I wake up and I'm sleeping better. My wife absolutely loves it.

Just a couple of issues
• it sleeps pretty hot. It's not unusual for me to wake up sweaty. This wasn't really a problem with my innerspring.
• we bought a bed frame and before I did so, I asked Mr Duncan specifically about the strength of the frame. We were face to face so he knew I was a big guy and he assured me that it was the strongest angle iron, etc. Well, one of the support legs buckled and bent the third night. I wouldn't really be upset except for the fact that we bought the frame for $80. If it was a freebie like retailers used to throw in it would just be a mild annoyance.. Now I have it rigged on a short step while I look for a replacement.

Hi Doug,

Innersprings can be a little cooler than a foam support core but most of the temperature regulation of a mattress comes from the upper layers above the support core and there may also be some other things that are contributing to your sleeping temperature (including your mattress protector, sheets, and bedding). There is more in post #2 here about many of the variables that can affect the sleeping temperature of a mattress which may be helpful.

• we bought a bed frame and before I did so, I asked Mr Duncan specifically about the strength of the frame. We were face to face so he knew I was a big guy and he assured me that it was the strongest angle iron, etc. Well, one of the support legs buckled and bent the third night.


I'm not sure which frame this was or whether it was defective or just weak but I would certainly talk to them about this because a good quality bedframe certainly shouldn't be breaking that quickly. There is more about steel bedframes including some links to some stronger heavy duty versions in post #10 here . There are some good heavy duty bedframes available for under $100 and for a little more you can find some that would be strong enough for any application.

I am so happy I found this site and this thread. We have been attempting to do research for months on which mattress to purchase and all the information I find seems so contradictory. I am going out today to visit a couple of the stores listed here and hopefully we will finally purchase our new mattress soon! Thank you Phoenix for all of the information you have provided!
