    Hey All,

    The wife and I have been having a hard time finding mattresses that we can get a solid night sleep on, so I figured I'd reach out to you fine folks and see if there were any specific mattresses you highly recommended. We've tried models from Casper, Tuft & Needle, and Cocoon by Sealy. I think the next one up is Purple.

    We're both side sleepers. I'm 6'1", 175lbs, she is 5'6", 125lbs. I sleep very warm, and as a result of that, all memory foam mattresses don't seem to be the best fit.

    Not super concerned on budget, just want to get a good nights sleep for the 1/3 of my life that's spent on the damn thing...

    Which Tuft and Needle did you try? We have the original and Mint. They are very different IMHO.

    We've tried both, currently "sleeping" on the Mint. Started with the Original, then swapped it during the trial for the Mint. Both, especially the Original, are very firm feeling for us to the point of waking up sore (in my case) and not sleeping well at all (in hers).

    @ARMYGREEN - What have been your overall impressions of the Purple brand? The 3" is the Hybrid Premier? I've been super curious on how the grid material+traditional springs feel.

    We had the purple 1. Too soft and no side firmness. Traded it back in for the 3.
    Purple 3 is great.

    It is great. We had a 10 year old temper pedic before. I liked it but did not want to pay the price for a new king sized one.

    Very happy with my king purple 3

    Not as springy as you would think.
    If you have a dealer that sells them, go lay on one and check it out.

    I seem to be more in the mindset of order, try at home for a month or two, then use the return policy...the in-store trial has always been a little weird to me.

    Our two main problems seem to be finding one that is soft enough for us to sink into and feel supported (all of the ones we've tried so far have felt very firm for our body weight) and very warm.

    Did you try others before going with the Purple3, or just a good first purchase?

    I prefer the original. It’s currently in our camper. We sleep on the Mint but are considering buying a new King Original and ditching the mint. The only thing I’d miss about the Mint is the reinforced edges. The original is softer and I seem to sleep cooler on it. We haven’t considered their new Hybrid which I believe has springs.

    A lot
    I’ve gone through a lot of mattresses trying to find one that we like -several high dollar spring mattresses with an adjustable foundation, you name it. We’ve been sleeping on a Tuft and Needle for a couple years - best mattress I’ve ever had!

    I have lower back problems and it’s the first mattress I’ve had where I don’t have back pain when I get out of bed.

    It’s a highly personal choice, you’ll eventually find one you like.

    My last two mattresses have been really comfortable. The first one was a Sears brand and was specifically for back sleepers so that won't help you.

    My wife is also a side sleeper and we both find our current mattress really comfortable. It's a Sealy Optimum posture-pedic with a pillow top. Unfortunately, the tag is hidden by the headboard so I can't tell you any more than that.

    im a fan of adjustability in general. sleep number last 15yrs, you and your wife can have separate firmness on each side. we just refreshed and bought all new ones for my wife and i plus each kid. got the new cooling system and the spoiled the kids with queens and adjustable bases so at least they have good ergonomics and posture doing homework in their bed. i can't get them to use their desks. they never want to get out of bed now it's that good. should last them as they move into adulthood and get into their own place.

    Tempur Pedic cloud medium/soft is what we have. Very comfortable, but if I did it again I would get the medium. I would like it to be a little firmer.

    My wife and I have been sleeping on a waterbed for around 40 years now. There's no way we'll switch. The temperature is adjustable to our exact needs, rolling over is almost effortless, and it conforms to our bodies perfectly. We've tried the fancy waterbed mattresses with lumbar support, but went back to the original full flotation type.
