    Need a new mattress

    I'm looking for a recommendation for a good mattress. Does anyone have any suggestions for the best value for the dollar? I have chronic back pain and am willing to spend for quality, but I don't want to overspend or go cheap. I find I have to replace my mattress more often than the recommended seven years as my back is so sensitive.

    I had been buying from the Original Mattress Factory when I lived in Ohio, but I have moved. I'm overwhelmed by all the choices on the market.

    In the past, I've purchased a firm mattress and put a 3" memory foam topper on top. I don't think I want an air mattress or a full memory foam one, but I am open to suggestions.

    I think we might have just had a thread on this and Bae recommended something that came by mail, as being really good value for the dollar.

    Almost 20 years ago we bought a sleep number as I have a very bad neck and back. It will last forever as long as you can still replace the pump.

    Thanks for the link. The problem with testing mattresses in stores is that lying on a bed for 15 minutes does not replicate 8 hours of sleep. It's a frustrating process. But I appreciate everyone's input!

    My doggie sitter bought a sleep number after sleeping in ours. My husband likes a soft mattress and I like it hard so we each adjust our own side.
