Lightbulb Memory Foam Beds

Are they worth it? What's your experience sleeping on it? I've sleep on steel inner spring mattresses all my life, it's about time for a change.

Re: Memory Foam Beds

My wife and I bought a Temperpedic when we originally moved in together about 6 years ago. Best decision we ever made. My back stopped hurting in the mornings within a month. It does take a few weeks to get used to, and sleeping elsewhere (like a hotel) kind of sucks, but my home sleep is much better.

Re: Memory Foam Beds

We have one. Love it, in the fact that the morning the back pain has stopped, almost instantly. I am not a good sleeper, at all, but I am certainly more comfortable, no aches and pains. I am however, post menopausal, and am HOT all night, but my husband says he isn't, so probably just me and my hormones, or lack of... GET ONE. You'll be gald.

Re: Memory Foam Beds

Not sure how much you're looking to spend, but check out a company called Kingsdown. Any time some one has spent the night they say how it is the BEST bed they have ever slept on.

Re: Memory Foam Beds

Dated a guy who had one when I was in college, it seemed pretty much no more comfortable to me than my dorm bed (other than having more space), and mildly annoyed me how wastefully expensive it was.

Re: Memory Foam Beds

Those of you who have one, do you sleep on your stomach? I think that if I bought one of these, I would suffocate.

Re: Memory Foam Beds

Absolutely awesome for sleeping. For, ummm, "other activities" not so much. There is absolutely zero bounce to them.

There are endless other locations for this, save the bed for sleeping!

Re: Memory Foam Beds

Highly recommend one. You will not feel stiff in the morning compared to a conventional spring mattress, and you will sleep better upon getting used to it.

I highly recommend getting one from www.usafoam.com (WFS) . Get the peach/pink foam if you want something similar to tempurpedic without paying over $1000 for the same material.
