I *love* my bed

Pros:firm, soft, strong, comfortable

Cons:none

I am the proud owner of a King size Simmons Beautyrest Mattress for almost three years now. I still think to myself "I love my bed" at least a couple times a week when I first slide into it. I count this bed as one of the bigger blessings in my life because I'm a big sleeper (I really like and need to sleep a lot) and I appreciate a comfortable bed. I don't exactly remember if the bed has a firmness quality, but for some reason I think it is 'firm'.

I am the sort who never replaces anything until the last drop of life is squeezed from it. I would have never considered a mattress to be something that is replaceable until I started sleeping on my husband's. His mattress was probably as old as me, and when I started waking up every morning with lower back pain, I knew it was time to get a new one. Our guest bed is a futon, and when I sleep on that I wake up with a faint joint aching, in all my joints for about two hours each morning.

We went to the furniture store that was having a sale on mattresses that weekend and walked around sitting on all the beds, not knowing what we were really looking for. We saw the mattress with the advertisement that had a bowling pin standing on the mattress and a bowling ball being dropped onto the mattress a few feet away, without disturbing the pin. I remembered this commercial and decided this was the bed I wanted. My husband moves around a lot in his sleep and that moving definitely disturbed me.

We bought the mattress and brought it home. Once we had it set up, our first order of business was to recreate the bowling ball scenario. (I know, we're strange). We didn't have a bowling ball, or a bowling pin for that matter, so we settled on a drinking glass and my husband. We placed the drinking glass (plastic, with only ice cubes in it) on the bed, and my husband jumped up and down on the bed a few feet from it. It didn't spill. He jumped tentatively at first and then really slammed on the mattress ... nothing! We were amazed.

We put the linen on the bed and I stretched out on it. Oh. my. goodness. It was so comfortable. It is a hard feeling to explain in words - but let me try. The mattress will conform just enough to my body to feel soft, but it offers enough support that I don't need any pillows placed at strange angles for my knees or back. No matter how I sleep (I am a side or stomach sleeper) it presses up to meet my body, but also accepts my body weight with some "give". I could sleep on the very edge, or right in the middle, and no part of it gives way or sags.

There was also a large improvement in how much my husbands moving around affected me. It didn't go away completely - I can still feel it on the mattress when he turns over, but I don't feel like I am going to flip over and roll toward him when he rolls into the middle of the bed.

According to the mattress producer, you don't need to flip the mattress - but I still do. I love this mattress so much I want it to last forever - and I am one of those "sleep in the exact same spot, the exact same way" people - so I flip it to try and extend its life. I've had it for almost three years and I cannot detect one iota of difference in the way it feels now, from how it did when I first bought it. I am hoping to have it for a long, long time - and if it ever does wear out I will buy another exactly like it.
