A year ago a bought an expensive Sleep Comfort 700 Series & adjustable frame. After 2 weeks on my new bed, I started waking up with lower back pain and now I can't sleep through the night. If I make the mattress firm enough to "reduce" my lower back pain, the rest of my body aches all over. I've added a 2 inch memory foam topper, which helps somewhat, but not enough. I'm eager to get a mattress that isn't a torture instrument. I recently tried "Sleep for Life" mattress (green) which felt wonderful in the store, but I'm concerned that I've never heard of them and also concerned that they said I couldn't use it on my adjustable frame. I just found your blog a read with interest your comments recommending latex mattresses for adjustable frames. However, since I only raise my adjustable frame about three inches to reduce my problem with acid reflux (this is in addition to my having raised the front legs of the bed a couple of inches) 1) do you think I could use the mattress on the adjustable frame? Also, 2) what do you think of "Sleep to live" mattresses? Finally, 3) do you have a store in Manhattan where I could try whatever you recommend? Thanks so much!
Hi Fran. Air mattresses don't provide any upward support, but rely only on displacement...not good. What you're looking at is made by Kingsdown and there are loads of bad reviews about them. Also, you're shopping at one of the most expensive stores out there....contrary to all their advertising...which you'd be paying for. Most innerspring mattresses don't work on an adjustable bed.
