First, I’m not a mattress expert or a traditionally trained sleep specialist. Although if sleeping were an Olympic sport, I could probably pretty easily make it into the regionals.
I know how to sleep.
We recently ordered a Tuft and Needle Foam Mattress after reading a review on Bestmattress-brand.org and when I posted that via Facebook folks said they wanted to know what if we liked it.
So here goes.
A good mattress should last between 8 and 10 years. According to the Internet. Just google it and that’s the answer you’ll find so I’m using that.
We’ve had multiple mattresses during what’s so far is a 26 year marriage. Admittedly in the beginning we had cheap ones. We had a water bed when we first got married (Don’t judge me, it was the 80’s). Then a cheap King mattress set, and at one point we got a new foam mattress from the in-laws who didn’t like it or found it to soft or something. I can’t remember the details.
But what I do know and can easily recall is our last mattress. We decided it was time we had a ‘good mattress’ and we bought that in 2008 from the Original Mattress Factory. They are, or were highly recommended in our area. At the time we purchased a Orthopedic Luxury Firm Mattress.
