Stearns and Foster...really that bad???

Anyone here have experience with Stearns and foster mattresses. I was just checking them out and I found one I really liked. I checked online for reviews and I found a bunch of people saying they got "sink holes" in theirs. Anyone have experience with this? I tried all the sealy mattresses and they felt cheap compared to Stearns and Foster. Any other high end brands I should look at?

I bought a Simmons, I liked the S&F's they were just to expensive. I've had the simmons for 4 years now, no flipping, huge pillow top, still rocks. I'd buy another for sure. Mine listed for $2200 I think I got it for $1300. IF you don't know yet the only way to price shop is to go in person and compare dimensions. The mattress Dist. will sell the same mattress to different stores with diff. labels so it makes it hard to compare prices.

Yeah, that's what I'm finding. I found 2 pillow top beds i like, one Simmons for $1300 and a Stearns and Foster for $1700. I also found a foam mattress I like for $3,200. The nice thing about the foam is it comes with a 25 year guarentee of no body impressions. all the other ones have a guarentee, but only after 1.5" of depression.

good lord dont do it, i got fucking sink holes in mine!!!

first one went bad in less than a year. warantee replaced so I went up a model, this current one was close to 2k and it's fucked again in less than a year!!! I'm waiting to hear back on my warantee claim. I'm not getting another one, my back is killing me and I'm sleeping in my spare bedroom now.

they used to be good back in the day, but clearly something is fucked now.

I didn't like the tempurpedics, turning once the indentation was formed was tough. I really liked the ComforPedic bed made by Simmons (simmons just bought the company ComforPedic). a little softer feel. Still memory foam, 25 year guarantee no sag, any sag at all and they replace. you don't have to wait for a 1.5" tolerance. Plus this bed is supposed to dissipate heat better than the tempurpedic. Only problem is it's $3k. I was hoping to stay under $2k

I'm tellin you guys, Try the select comfort beds. you can try them free for 30 days and they ship right to your door. I was skeptical about them, and then I wouldn't give it back.

Tempurs are designed to wrap around you so yes if you have jimmy legs, its not as easy to roll around on a foam bed.

This is what we have
http://www.tempurpedic.com/sleep_sys...edic/overview/
I find it to be great.. Did more for my back than pretty much anything else...

It's kind of a hybrid, it is foam, but it has foam springs.. Kind of reminds me of air-ride suspension...

Might be worth checking out.





I wanted to do that Ergo system (basically a craftmatic bed... same company makes both of em) but it wasnt recommended on beds that thick.. We'd have gone with one of the mattresses from the lower end of the line...

We have one of the waterbeds that has a mattress top. It has tubes of water and then I upgraded the mattress top to memory foam. It looks like a normal bed and uses regular sheets. Even sits on a metal frame, so you can have a regular headboard/footboard. You can't tell it water until you sit, then you sink into heavenly goodness. It is also adjustable, the firmer you want it the more water you add to the tubes. I like a softer bed so my side has less water, Dave has his side a bit firmer. I love this bed. ~Mandy
