Hey CeruleanBlue,

Sorry you're dealing with a similar painful situation. We're trying to reframe (no pun intended) our views on the whole bed purchase process. We're going to visit the Dormio showroom tonight and may well end up shelling out a boatload of money and (potentially) delaying a vacation by a year or two as a result. She has fairly severe scoliosis and my back hasn't been "normal" since I started sleeping on her bed. If we spend $3,000 but sleep soundly, cooly, and pain-free for the next 10 years, seems like a bargain, really. If I were buying a new car, a new house, engagement ring, etc., I wouldn't I wouldn't be settling on something that's "meh", so I definitely shouldn't be doing that with something that has a direct impact on my health.

Good luck to you. Will let you know what we end up opting for.

Thanks,
Brad

Hey Brad123,

Thanks for the post. Let us know how it turned out at Dormio, you do very nice job "framing" the importance of the mattress purchase, especially given the medical and pain issues you and your partner have. Thanks again.

I just read your post, so this response may be too late. But Mayer's Bedding uses a non-wool cover. Also a number of vendors offer what they call "vegan" mattresses such as Plush Beds Natural Bliss.

I hope you're sleeping comfortably.

Hi all,
Sorry to start a non-sequitur post, but I'm new to the forum and can't figure out how to start a new topic. I believe my account has been approved, but when I visit the main page, I don't see any button to start a new thread. Is there something wrong with my account? I'm a millennial and consider myself a pretty tech-savvy person, but I spent 30 minutes trying to find a Start New Topic button to no avail....

Because I can't figure out how to start a new thread, I'm replying to this thread as it's the only way I can communicate/create a post.

Anyone have any advice?

You can only currently start a new thread in the Talk to the Experts sections. If you can find a related expert's area you can post your new thread there, or you can search for and find an existing thread which is related to your topic and just post your question on that thread. Admins may then move it to a new thread if they deem it necessary. There's nothing wrong with your account!

Hey stuuke,

When I responded to your SleepEZ post yesterday, I meant to also check in about this question you asked the TMU Forum recently:

What's the best way to ask forum member thoughts on two different retailers?


This is a good question as many new consumer members ask for tips on searching topics, how to start topics and use the resources available here. In the " General Forum ", use the "Search" bar to find if the retailers you are researching have existing topics that would be helpful and post your question to one of those.

If you prefer to start a new topic, click on the green "New Topic" button. On the next screen in the "Category" field, choose to stay in the "General Mattresses Questions" default category, the other categories are specific to Expert Trusted Members' Q & A discussions (but you can totally check those out too, Expert Members love to help with questions, even about other retailers). For the "Subject" field, be specific about your topic name, it will help draw other consumers searching similar posts to your question. For example, if you live in a particular area and are ONLY interested in shopping among retailers within a certain driving distance, say it in the Subject name like this: "Mattress Shopping near ATL GA- Any thoughts on Retailer A vs Retailer B?" OR, using any other key words that would help consumers find your question to comment on it later, as new posts come in afterwards and continually change older posts' order. Another example is a mention about the type mattress you may be comparing between retailers: "ISO King Flippable Mattress in NYC area- Opinions on Retailer A's 'Nite-Nite' model vs Retailer B's 'Sleepy Time'?" OR, you can always post your topic and say, "Sensei, please rename/ move this topic for me", I'll be happy to do so :)

Before signing off, I'd also like to remind new Consumer members of the TMU Forum rules , you'll find all of the general guidelines to keeping this space informative, friendly and helpful. Thanks again stuuke for your question, hope this helps.

BTW, did you get the answer to this question in one of your other recent posts?

Cheers,
Sensei

I understand that most mattress review sites are junk, but what about consumer reports? They are well established and as far as I'm aware have a good reputation. They have a lot of cheaper mattresses well rated and I'm curious if they can be trusted in their reviews of mattresses.

Hey Lokenzal,

Welcome to the TMU Forum :) ! Thanks for your question.

I understand that most mattress review sites are junk, but what about consumer reports? They are well established and as far as I'm aware have a good reputation. They have a lot of cheaper mattresses well rated and I'm curious if they can be trusted in their reviews of mattresses.


Here are some thoughts from a previous Phoenix post that best expresses our views on the CR topic, post #2 here :

You can also see my comments about the Consumer Reports mattress ratings and recommendations in post #2 here and in this topic . While they may be a good source of information about more "objective" purchases ... as you can see I would consider them to be an unreliable source of information or guidance about purchasing a mattress and their "ratings" are somewhat nonsensical and meaningless. My thoughts are also shared by most of the more knowledgeable people in the industry (see post #5 here for an example).

While other people's comments about the knowledge and service of a particular business can certainly be very helpful, I would always keep in mind that you are the only one that can feel what you feel on a mattress and I would be cautious about using anyone else's suggestions, experiences or reviews on a specific mattress (either positive or negative) or review sites in general as a reliable source of information or guidance about how you will feel on the same mattress or how suitable or how durable a mattress may be for you.


Thanks,
Sensei
