Recently, I stayed at a b&b and slept on a Stearns & Foster Hampshire classic mattress, which my girlfriend really liked. Since I had a good experience with the brand, I'd like to purchase a Stearns & Foster mattress, but I'm not sure what to purchase. I have a full size bed. I'm 35 years old, 5'11'', and weigh about 170 pounds, so I'm fairly slim. I sleep on my side. Also, I have a slight bulge in one of my discs, which leads to some hip / low back discomfort on my left side. Basically, I'm only really comfortable sleeping on my left side. Would you be able to recommend a couple different possibilities at some different price points? I only have a bed frame at the moment, so I'll need to purchase other necessary items (e.g. Box spring, mattress protector, etc). I'm a complete novice and could really use some guidance. Since you seem like a trustworthy source, I'd also like to purchase the mattress from you, but may need to try it out at another location. I live in Manhattan.
Memory foam is the major source of everyone's problems. It's designed to be "initially" comfortable...designed to make the sale.
