Mattress buying

I've had my current mattress for almost 10 years so it's about time I looked into getting another one.

I'm a stupidly light sleeper and the Mrs only has to twitch a little toe for me to wake up. As such our last mattress was an individually pocket sprung jobbie. It seems that memory foam versions have improved this area further and I'm leaning towards them.

I am naturally a warm person ( thyroid runs pretty high) and the biggest thing that is putting me off of memory foam at the moment is the way they trap heat leading to a sweaty experience between the sheets and not in the good way. They are starting to add in a 'cool' layer to aid this problem but I'm still not convinced.

Like everything, the deeper you dig the more complex things seem to get. What does seem to stay consistent is the 'don't buy from a shop' argument. Better products at better prices seem to be direct ordering from the manufacturer, often smaller English brands such as Emma.

Any body care to chip in with their thoughts, foam or otherwise.

my 2p i bought a new one last year and had plans to buy online in the name of a bargain but ended up spending about 3 hours in cozynights and it's worth the time. what i had in my head that I wanted wasn't anywhere near what I ended up with. plus when your spending a good chunk in our case 750 you want it to be spot on

I bought a memory foam one, because we have a super king and it was one that could get up the stairs, hated it and it caused me no end of back ache, got rid, bought 2 ikea singles that are longer that normal, they are cheap and ok but I'm still not happy, but it's next to impossible to judge how you feel about a mattress until you have had a fair few nights in it!

I've seen a advertisement on the TVs from a company that offers 100 nights trial, I can't remember the name of the company but I would go down that route for my next one

the place we had ours from did the trial thing but only able to change to a more expensive mattress. if you went to a cheaper one you forfeited the difference

I've been after a new mattress for a long time but because of hearing all about the heat with memory goam mattresses I've held off and just kept my old spring mattress. Is the heat really that big a deal with the memory foam mattresses?

It's the heat that bothers me the most to be honest.
Doing research online is hard work, spent the afternoon reading about Emma, Eve, simba, Leesa, Ergoflex etc. They are all highly rated on review sites. Dig a little deeper on forums and it seems the trend is for negative reviews to 'disappear ' leaving artificially high scores.

Plenty of 30 and 100 day trials but you get stuck with the return postage apparently. Posting a king size mattress back can't be cheap. Maybe I could strap it to the back of a Deliveroo bloke on his pushbike.

I thought the returns would have been free tbh, obviously not! Had to be a catch I suppose, although I just googled the Emma mattress and that is a free return, just call them up and they will sort it, I might give one of them a go to see how we get on!

I do think the heat in memory foam is exaggerated some people just get hot in bed and put it down to that.

I had a 10 inch one and loved it. I never experienced the massive difference in heat that people speak of.

I have a silent night one now it's a mixture and I think it's great. These days there's so much choice.

See if you can get a free trial of Which magazine as they normally have reviews. Also you can buy new beds directly from Premier Inn and Travelodge if you like their ones.

I have decided to go for the Leesa. It wasn't one particular thing but some of the points that made me lean that way

-100 day trial with money back guarantee and free returns. A few others offered 30/100 day trial but without free return.

-You get a new mattress! Some companies offering the same 100 day return policy send out retuned beds to new customers! A vital piece of stitching is added to these making them identifiable.

-Returned mattresses are sold as such elsewhere and 1 out of 10 is donated to charities.

-Specified materials used. Some competitive products are a little hazy with materials/quantities.

-Gets good reviews for being cool. Very important for me.

- £100 off for the rest of today. That's handy.

-They don't 'hide' reviews. They publish ALL reviews on their site (newest first) good, bad and indifferent and still come out well. Plenty of the competition delete negative reviews and even on supposed independent sites negative reviews are buried at the end needing hundreds of clicks to access. It's all a bit shady to be honest with their own websites publishing near perfect scores with 270 votes but you can see from other sources that there has been 400 reviews. Where has 130 reviews gone lol.



Any way, I figured 100 day free trial with free returns is basically a no lose situation so worth a punt.

Get a pocket sprung one with an in built foam topping.

I used to walk into a room full of people & wonder if they liked me..... Now I look around & wonder if I like them

Ive been looking for one for ages. I have to say the memory foam ones are ok but  I still preferred a good pocket spring. I ordered one from Argos without trying it out. Its a 2000 pkt ortho so hope its not too bad. It was pretty cheap too. Was supposed to take 30 days to deliver... been set back another 30 days which p1ssed me off.
 
As mentioned above you can always put a memory foam topper over it if you want. Im sure you get some that are latex or something which give a cooler feel.

Best nights sleep I've ever had. Every night for the past 5 years and it's not showing signs of getting any less comfortable!
