Need a new bed....opinions?

What kind of bed do you own? Innerspring, memory foam or some kind of hybrid? The choices out there are mind boggling...firm, luxury firm, firm plush, cooling foam, energy foam, cooling gel foam. What ya got?

Tried a Tempurpedic.....felt like sleeping in a hammock, hot and hard to move. My back felt worse the longer I slept in it. Anybody have a Dormeo or a Sleep # bed?

Working in the bed industry I'll tell you just as many people hate tempurpedic as like it. So it's definitely a 50/50 risk.

Stick with simple, comfortable beds. Don't overthink it. All these beds with technology in them will give you the same sleep as a simple bed that fits you.

Go to the furniture market or ask the builders or the designers for your bed, they will tell you about the latest designs of beds. Otherwise now the world is a global village, search on the internet for different designs.

I've slept on my parents sleep # when we housesat there...it was ok but imo alot of hype and gimmick for what is ultimately an air mattress and it feels exactly like one as well. OOOOOOoooOoHHHH its ADJUSTABLE...

Following the thread getting a new bed soon myself, seem to be at odds with my wife she thinks soft I want firm so ....

I have one of the first Sleep Number models (when they were called Select Comfort). It's the dual chamber kind with pillow top and feels more like a bed than an air mattress to me. Prior to it I was using two air mattresses stacked on each other for a short time. Not ideal especially when you have cats.

Pros:
Easy to move in and out of rooms and through a stairway (no inflexible trad boxspring and the mattress is malleable enough when slightly deflated to squish it through when needed). If you relocate often you or your movers might appreciate that feature.

Adjustability is noticeable but I find when it's maxed out at 100 it's not as firm as I'd like. Could be its age? During fluctuating seasonal temps I readjust it to counter any contraction/expansion of air.

Cons:
The pillow top. I'd never get another. That has areas of compression and no way to adjust, fix, or remove it. In fact I've considered getting a memory foam topper to deal with it's unevenness.

Being on the lighter side weight wise (120lbs), I'll say that I've "rolled into the valley" towards a heavier bed partner's side. Adjusting the chambers, softening mine and firming his, never seemed to work. Plus the foam divider between chambers is sometimes felt in that valley roll situation.

All in all I like it more than not and would most likely not go back to traditional spring beds when I replace this one.

I have tried them all and my favorite combo is a simple pillow top mattress with a 3-5" feather over the bed fitted extra pillow top that you can pick up at walmart or target for $150. It's warm in the winter when your all covered up and cool in the summer when you don't use blankets and have a fan going(no AC in the mtns).

This combo is like $4-500 for a king depending on what sale you find going on. Fuck the expensive gimmick stuff, we have slept and fucked on them all. Sleep# was my least favorite.

After looking and doing a lotta research........went with a Simmons Beautyrest Black. Abriana is the model. I believe it is the second firmest they make. Pocket coils for motion isolation and no pillowtop to sag or break down in 4 or 5 years. Nice and firm, but with a little plushness. Figured we would go firm and add a topper if we needed a little more softness. A topper breaks down and you can go buy a new one relatively cheap.
