I have narrowed my search down to the Tempurpedic contour select or
I actually think that the Contour Select feels a bit softer..more
"squishy" and cozy. I like it very much, but fear that it might feel
too soft in a few years.
I know that the Rhapsody is a better mattress because of the 7lb. top
layer, and feel that because of this high density foam, will hold up
better. Will the Rhapsody feel like the contour select in a few years?
Its hard for me to pass this one up because of its popularity..but I
do like the Contour select too. Any thoughts?
What mattress pad would you recommend? Does doubling up the sheets
affect the "getting hot" factor?
Thank you so much. Meredith
There are many places you could have written to, that will affirm that which you think
you know and tell you everything you want to hear. However, this is not one of those
places. Memory foam has proven itself to provide poor long term performance. It was
Mark Twian that said, "It's easier to fool people than it is to convince them that
been fooled." You are a victim of brain washing in the form of unrelenting mass media
marketing. That junk has been touted by it's maker as the best thing since sliced
bread for nearly 20 years. Tell a lie often enough and it begins to sound like the truth.
Some of the truths that have been omitted from their marketing are: It sleeps
hot...you can't change position without waking up...when you get it, it smells real bad.
Let's stop there. The reason why it smells bad is because it off-gasses toxic fumes
from the toxic chemicals it's made of. Those fumes attack your respiratory system.
Memory foam is the absolute worst material ever invented for use in or as a mattress.
Besides being dangerous, it's shot in just a few years...at most.
You will have no trouble finding many who would tell you it's safe and long lasting. I
would encourage you to google search the contents of memory foam. I showed your
question to my wife. She told me that I have to help that poor girl. She's about to
make a horrible mistake. I wonder if I can. With so much hype about it, it's like trying
to talk someone out of being Branch Davidian or a Jim Jones follower. I hope you will
take the time to know what you're planning on buying before you buy it.
