Alright my SV riding friends..

It's time for a new bed.. Upgrade ;D

Tempurpedic VS Sleep Number beds... both seem to have their advantages..
and flaws..

Any owners out there?

Chime in, I'm looking for some first hand experiences...

I own a sleep number bed. While it is unquestionably the greatest bed I have ever owned, there is one down side. The two separate air chambers are divided only by a piece of foam rubber. This isn't an issue if you and your sleep partner have similar sleep numbers. My wife and I do not. I am an 80 and she is a 55. Midnight snuggle sessions sometimes lead to aches the following morning due to the difference in sleep firmness.

Now, that one lone donside considered, it is without a doubt the best bed on earth. Feeling stiff? Bump the bed up. It has infinite adjustability and always meets you with as much or as little support as you need. Plus, they carry a 20 year warranty. Buy the bed today and if it breaks before 2029, they will replace the part. I have the sleep number 5000 with 2 wireless controllers. I can't tell you how much I recommend it to friends and family alike. Best $ I ever spent on a mattress.

If you are at all concerned about chemical exposure or allergies, I would consider a mattress that is 100% natural latex as opposed to the temperpedic which is synthetic.

Do a little research before you buy.

I bought mine from these guys but there are many others.

We have had our King, 100% natural latex ie natural rubber, for about 5 years and we love it.

There are certain things that the memory foam beds are not good for.... doing them is like running uphill on soft sand.

In addition to those things, if you are someone that turns in your sleep, you may or may not start waking up every time you flip- or not. Your partner won't wake you up when they flop though.

Personally hate the sleep number bed, for one a bed filled with air just never felt quite right to me even when it was very hard. 2- it was annoying if you would ever cross over the middle it went from hard to soft with a divider. 3- the biggest problem thought was that one of the bladders kept loosing air. So after replacing it and still having the same problem I filled it up and just put a plug in it. So it isn't even an adjustable bed anymore. Still have it but I'll never buy one again.

I have a Tempurpedic and have had it for about 8 years.

^-- True. I didn't really sleep on my Tempur for the first year, I was away travelling and the noxious stuff pretty much escaped by the time I was regularly sleeping in it. It was pretty strong for the first week. So many household items are bad this way, new carpet is particularly terrible in general.

^-- Also true. Great for sleeping, bad for sex. Well, actually it's good for sex if you really like a workout. Think of being mired in a bog. It can be fun if you're athletic.

I like the bed because I hate being jostled by someone else moving around, you can jump on it next to someone's head and they won't wake up. I, in fact, did so.

I also don't like pillowtops very much. My back enjoys the Tempur foam.

They do tend to get hot if you're someone who puts off a lot of BTUs. I am usually chilly so it works out great for me. My bed is older material, not the newer type, so when it is cold the bed gets very hard. I solved this by having an electric blanket (oohhh how I love that electric blanket) and warm up the bed a little bit while I take my nightly shower if it's cold.*

However, had a natural latex bed been available at the time, I would have looked into it seriously. It may be my next bed, though my current hasn't shown any sign of wear yet.

*I don't have central heating and sometimes it's 40 degrees inside my bedroom (windows don't seal, single pane, SoCal does get chilly) and thus the electric blanket with my wonderful squishy bed = ahhhh.

Posturpedic, been sleeping like a rock for 4 years.
Yeah I have a Seally that I got in Daytona so it's now been almost 9 years on a 10 year warranty so I'm also in the market for something new too. What ever I get needs to still be 16"-17" thick cause I'm not going out and buying new sheet sets to fit a thicker mattress either.

I personally prefer the temperpedic of the two. Parents own a sleep number bed and like theirs though. I personally have decided to never buy one because I was booted from a store for testing the goods :p

I don't sleep.......









.......I wait. :)



One of the guys that I work with had a housefire recently, Super Bowl Sunday to be exact. He said the the room that it started in, had a daybed with a foam mattress on it. And when that mattress caught, it went up like a pine tree. I saw pictures from the aftermath. :eek:

I will never have a foam mattress in my home. I know I know, there are foam cushions on my chairs and couch. Still, I will never have a foam mattress in my home.
