Hi All,

Before y'all get all excited and rush off to buy one of these mattresses, you should know that, of which Naomi is completely unaware.

S&F's reputation for being one of the best mattresses, has totally tanked.

Since being purchased by Tempurpedic, each and every one of their models is now loaded with memory foam.

Memory foam is designed to sell mattresses...over and over again.

Its extraordinary initial comfort is lost within a matter of months...and by the end of the first or second year of owning one, you'll be looking to replace it.

Naomi is basing here opinion upon that initial comfort and an old reputation that no longer applies.

Also, you'll pay 2 - 3 times more for a mattress purchased from a hotel than for the comparable mattress sold at a retail store.

Please don't follow Naomi's advice.

Research before you buy.

Thanks, Pete

Important Note:

Moisture will cause mattresses to wear out faster.

Protect your mattress from accidents, spills & perspiration with our all natural silver infused cotton waterproof mattress & pillow protectors. They sleep cool and won't shrink when washed in hot water.

Ritz Carlton Beds made by the highly reputable Stearns and Foster. We just haad heavenly sleep at the Ritz in Rancho Mirage and I was blown away by the bed. Go to Ritz Carlton site, shop and all their bedding is for sale.
Happy New Year and pleasant dreams.


Nice post, I saw that you are in the market for a Sealy Mattress similar to the one you slept on in the Ritz, so I thought I would stop in and tell you about wwwthemattressexpert.com. The website has a huge selection of mattresses and I definitely think you should check it out. I'm pretty sure my parents bought their mattress from there and they love it. I hope this information finds you well, good luck!

Dina- hello, we recently comfort exchanged a Sealy Largent(Regency) pillow top which was way to soft, (mattress only since we are using our CA King waterbed frame) from Furniture store near us and got a Simmons Beautyrest Anniversary Mirella Plush Firm, needless to say we are thinking this is way to firm, it's almost like sleeping on the floor,

I get very bad backache and can only sleep a few hours at a time. mornings are terrible. When I lay on my back I can nearly put my arm underneath my lower back, and feel as if I have to round out my back with pillows under the lower portion of my rear. When I sleep on my side (preferred) I get sore hips and a sore back. My husband has had L4-5 back surgery and is now sleeping on the couch again, we are getting closer to the cut off date to be able to exchange it(2 weeks I think)

My question is this would a topper work to fix this?(not sure if we can afford another 3-400$ since we paid 1500$ already, or should we exchange it again and what would be good to exchange it to?
we were thinking on a Latex bed, something completely different than what we have had.
Our old bed lasted 15yrs, it was a $500 Sealy medium firm. but alas, they do not make them that nice anymore I fear. please we need advise! I just ran across your blog, have been reading it all day and have learned a lot, like never get a pillowtop(which I learned from the last one we exchanged)or memory foam.
please help
