Adjustable Bed

Karen Jones

We bought a Sleep to Live bed two years ago. After 10 months, there was a huge gully on one side. Kingsdown Sleep to Live Mattress Company said it was due to the fact that we were not using their bed frame. At the time of purchase, the Sleepy's salesman told us we did not need to purchase a new bed frame since we already owned one. Kingsdown would not replace the bed and voided all warranties on the bed from that point forward. One of the big selling features for this bed is a lifetime warranty!! Now a year later, I cannot sleep on that side of the bed at all. My husband I have to sleep in separate beds. We financed $5,000 and have a year to pay on this piece of junk!

Hi Karen,
Here's a quote for a Sleepy's guy who wrote to me. It showcases the kind of double talk you run into when you shop there...which is likely the reason you ended up with that worthless, overpriced, junky mattress.

"Interesting article and one which should be much widely illustrious about in my substance. Your dismantle of force is serious and the clarity of authorship is fantabulous."

If you can understand that gibberish he wrote, I'd like you to explain it to me.
Thanks, Pete

I agree that your environment should be conducive to restful sleep.

I think it is even more important to prepare your mind and body for sleep.
Old-fashioned though it may seem, my grandmother taught me to first, lie in bed and relax your body, starting with your toes and working up to your scalp, focusing on nothing else while you do this.

Then, begin to clear your mind of that little voice that keeps reminding you of all the things you need to do tomorrow.

Picture the dream you want to have. Decide where you want to go in your dream, picture it and focus on that picture.

You will get better and better at this with practice.

Try it. You’ll like it!!!

I think you need a latex mattress. This has pincore holes all over the holes. Latex mattresses usually have 4 pounds of density which is ideal for lower back pains. But choose one that has smaller pincore holes at the upper part of the mattress. This will provide balanced comfort and support to your whole body.


Great matress brand, works like a charm!

Hi, I have just bought a Sleep to Live 700 double bed here in the UK. My friend bought one last December 08 but when I look at mine the mattress appears to be higher - her mattress is flat and I can sit on the end of her bed and touch the floor with my feet. On my bed my feet are about 3 inches from the floor. The one in the showroom is the same as my friend's. Why can I touch the floor with the older bed but not touch the floor with my feet when I sit on my new 700 series bed? Have they 'tweeked the design'?. Thanks for reading this question.

Hi Susan. There are several models in the Sleep to Live line. It may be that yours is different from your friend's.
The easiest way to get the info you want, is with a tape measure. It could be that your frame is higher off the floor than that in the showroom or your friend's house. It could be the boxspring is thicker...or it could be the mattress. The only way to know, is to measure.
