Since you're the Mattress expert I thought I'd ask you a quick question...and I'd be honored if you would be willing to help.
I have enjoyed looking at your website so thank you for your for that as well. I have a quick question I was hoping you could help me with.
I have slept on quite a few mattresses over the course of time and fell in love with one called the Sealy monogram 800 series while at a hotel.
I was pretty stunned as it turns out the mattress isn't really the nicest there is in their line up...but for some reason it worked really well for me.
Come to find out they don't make that mattress anymore and have replaced it by what they call the Selwyn.
I'm curious to know if that's even remotely the same mattress or something entirely different that they've just put in it's same place...and what the reviews are on it as I'm wanting to purchase it.
The reason I mention this is because the line up shows the monogram as the mid tier....then it goes to the titanium.
Then at the top, it goes to the stearns and foster and that kinda scared me because I had purchased a Stearns and Foster "Kimberley LXP EPT" mattress.
It has been a complete disaster. It was nice at first but started to sag "hammock" big time.
They replaced it once and now it's happened again but they won't help me out after the first replacement. I'm waking up with kinks etc.
So...long story short.....what I want is a new Sealy Monogram 800 series but I can't find one. I can't even find a used one worth buying.
So...the Selwyn is supposed to be the replacement but I have no idea if it's even remotely the same bed or sleeps as well.
Has that become a Stearns and Foster made Mattress now? Are they different now? Do you have any recommendations on this mattress?
I'm tempted to just pop on it, but I'm worried about getting into something that is completely different that doesn't work for me and then the return problems that could come. All because of a Sealy Monogram 800 bed. lol. But it slept good for me. ..and I've slept of a lot of mattresses.
Any and all help would greatly be appreciated.
Wow, Drew, I can almost see your head spinning.
What doesn’t work, and hasn’t worked for you, is memory foam.
The S&F Kimberly is one of the few S&F mattresses with memory foam, at that time.
Since then, Tempurpedic has purchased Sealy and S&F.
Now, everything made by those brands is loaded with memory foam.
The exception to this, are the mattresses made for hotels.
These memory foam free mattresses are not available at retail stores.
There are lots of stores advertising hotel grade mattresses. It’s not true.
Many hotels make their mattresses available for sale to their guests.
The only place you can buy that mattress, is through a hotel.
Also, I would encourage you to avoid pillowtop models.
The pillowtop part is the first thing to show wear.
Hi Peter....yeah...I wrote that Email at 4am so I was tired...and it shows. lol. But I appreciate your response. I think you're right.
I don't like memory foam for the most part. I even purchased a memory foam mattress and I kept waiting for it to kick in for me because I guess there's a few weeks you have to give it to come around to it....but it never happened.
I will keep my eye open for a mattress without the foam....and I will see if the hotel has an extra bed they want to sell...would be nice. And I'm just that weird guy who would ask about it...buy it..and carry that thing out of the front entry to load it onto a truck with my buddy to take home. Lol. If that doesn't work do you have any recommendations on any specific mattresses? Thanks again for your help
Let me know how you make out finding that mattress.
We specialize in avoiding memory foam and can offer a recommendation if necessary.

Hi Pete, Would you recommend a plush latex mattress topper for a Simmons Beautyrest that is too firm? I see on your blog that you typically do, for a variety of reasons, including longevity of the mattress... Thanks! Anne Hi...
