This bed is too good to be true!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Great design. Extremely comfortable. Helpful orthopedically.

Cons:Expensive, heavy, can't use heating device.

The Bottom Line: It is well worth the money you spend.


I had decided that the full size bed that my husband and I were sleeping on was just not big enough, so it was time to upgrade to a queen. My mother had purchased a Tempur Pedic some months ago and just raved and raved about it. I suggested that we go to check it out.

I fell in love. It was a bit strange at first to lie on it. You just don't expect a mattress to act the way this one does. You sit on it and sink in slowly. I was amazed at how it conformed to the body. So, off we went to a mattress store to price it.

Well, my husband nearly fell over from sticker shock and the salesman didn't seem to want to even discuss the mattress except to say that it was the top of the line.

We wandered around the store and tried out countless other mattresses. The problems we came across with each one were problems we did not have with the Tempur Pedic.

I was preferring softer mattresses, ones that I could sink into and felt like a big cloud. He preferred the firmer ones. We also had the problem with how much the other mattresses would shake enough to disturb the other when one of us would toss and turn or get off and on. I work late and get home when he's asleep, so this was a priority. Not to mention that we both move quite a bit in our sleep.

Tempur Pedic's design was perfect for us both. I was happy with how it would mold around my body and he was happy that it was firm once your body was in place. And we've all seen those ads where the woman is jumping on the bed with a glass of red wine on the mattress without spilling it, so there goes the disturbance problem.

My husband also had a confused disk in his neck that liked to go on walk-abouts from time to time, and I had heard that the Tempur Pedic can be helpful to those with back and neck problems.

The way I see it, you generally spend about a third of your life in bed so it should be considered an investment. After explaining this concept along with how it was the only mattress to conform to both of our needs, we bought it.

When we first brought it home and slept on it, we thought it felt so good. The only problem was that we would wake up with sore backs. I found out that this was because our bodies had to adjust to it, because we were sleeping on the "wrong" mattress for so long. After a period of readjustment, our backs never felt better. I used to get awful knots in my back muscles, but no longer do. Also, my husband's pesky disk seems to be happy and no longer causes him any problems.

We've had it for well over a year and it still holds it's shape and does it's job. I have noticed some pilling under the protective cover, but it seems as though it is only the cover pilling up and doesn't affect the performance of the bed and you don't even feel them unless you try to with the palm of your hand.

Ok, so nothing is perfect really. Here are some of the issues I have with the mattress. It is very expensive, but then again, you can purchase a standard top quality mattress for a little bit less, but you won't get near the same quality as this one. The thing is heavy. I mean heavy! Don't try to lift it yourself, you'll pull something in your body or rip the mattress. You can't use heating pads or any other heating device on the bed. So, if you get a strained muscle or something, you'll have to use the heat on your sofa.

I've found that when I go on vacation, I'm not sad about coming home and usually cannot wait to get a good night's sleep.
