We bought a memory foam model from Sealy about 2 years ago and it has not been nearly as comfortable as we had hoped. We had previously owned a Simmons extra firm with pillow top which we initially liked but over time I started to develop pains around the hip and later the shoulders. We had several friends that bought the memory foam mattresses (mostly Tempur-Pedic). I thought this would bring some relief from the pains at pressure points. Boy, was I wrong. My wife is also starting to experience the same problems. We have tried putting a down cover over to soften the contact but this was not effective either. If anything, the aches and pains are worse now than with the Beautyrest. I rarely get as much as 2 hours of sleep before the pain wakes me up and I have to change positions. By the time I get out of bed in the morning, I feel as if I have been beaten. I actually get a better night's rest on a hotel mattress. I'm sure some of this is my age (60). Also I've lost! quite a bit of weight in the last 6 months (215 to 168) which you think would reduce pressure due to the lower weight. Not the case. It has actually gotten worse -- less padding I guess. Did I make a mistake in not buying the Tempu-Pedic brand or is this a generic problem with memory foam type products? I thought about trying an air mattress net but have not read too much positive about them. I just need to get some rest. Any suggestions? Thanks
Hi Chuck. Flip it over and sleep on the underside. memory foam is a love it or hate kinda thing. I don't know where the percentages lie, but all I hear are complaints. The bottom half of the mattress is poly foam. Flip it over and sleep on that side. you can use your down cover to soften it up. The underside is much firmer. If that works for you, you won't need to think about buying another for a while.
