I've been devouring your site for hours now, and decided I'd just go straight to the source. My husband and I have been sleeping on an old Serta mattress for the past 9 years. It is the same mattress he had in his bachelor pad and has a huge dip in the middle. We just had a small unexpected windfall this week and he has given me permission to buy a new mattress set this weekend, but he will not be coming with me to buy it! My husband is 6'3, 300lbs, and I am 5'7, 190lbs. We only sleep in the bed together every other week due to his rotating shift schedule as a police officer. I'm looking to keep our budget around $1000 for a queen sized set, and am hoping to get a Euro-plush top. He sleeps on his back/side, and I am a stomach/side sleeper. What do you recommend? I was looking at the Sealy Posturepedic Clear Blue Plush Euro Pillowtop II set, currently on sale at Sears for $699.99, but I realize that at that price it is probably too good to be true...
Hi Pamela. $700 for that set in queen is a steal....and the best use of the money you have.
You do need a set. Mattress only on a 9 y/o boxspring is a bad move.
