I just bought a stearns & foster pillowtop mattress from a local mattress store. I've been sleeping on it for less than 30 days and I'm miserable. I'm 5'0 and weigh 90 lbs. I have neck and lower back pain. My husband is 6'0 and weighs 195 lbs. every time my husband moves in the bed I roll in to him. I feel like I'm constantly climbing out of a hole. The mattress also feels like it is hot. I'm baffled that a $2600 mattress would have such poor performance. My back pain is far worse than it was on my 10 yr old mattress.
Any suggestions? Kim
You spent a lot of money and figured that was what it took to buy a quality mattress. In having done so, you played right into the hands of, what has become, your adversary. I know that most people don't think of the mattress industry as adversarial, but that is exactly what it has become. They no long concern themselves with quality, only profits...producing mattresses that are built to sell, but not worth much after that. Much has changed over the past 10 years, or so. S&F used to be the Cadillac of mattresses. Now, it's owned by Tempurpedic...which I consider to be the Evil Empire of the mattress world. It's all that crappy memory foam, that they now use in those mattresses, that has failed and sleeps hot. You also opted for a pillowtop model, because it was the most comfortable. You had every expectation that it would remain comfortable, based on there bogus 25 year warranty.
As a consumer who buys such a product...one designed to offer initial comfort that makes the sale, but isn't worth a damn only months later, you must view the mattress industry as adversarial. It isn't only S&F, it's most of the major brands.
My recommendation is to get rid of that piece of junk before you do some permanent damage to your spines. Here is a link to our Therapedic Cameo Plush mattress. It's an old-fashioned two-sided mattress, made of high quality materials. It isn't designed to fool you, just provide the firm support your spine needs and a comfortable sleeping surface that will remain comfortable for many years....and, at half the price of the mattress you bought. Here is the link to the Cameo Plush...by far, a superior mattress to any of the name brands on the market today.
