    Anyone here works in a mattress shop?
    What should I be look at when buying the mattress?
    What justifies the difference in the price?

    Mucho love

    If you have back bother, get Memory Foam even if you have to mortgage your bike* to do it

    (* = spare bike of course)

    cooroo thanks I think I am even willing to mortgage my proper bike to by the mattress as I have no time to ride anyway.

    Get something with pocket springs and ideally a memory foam top. Much more expensive than the other type of spring (whatever they are called) but it will change your sleeping life forever

    We recently bought a memory foam mattress, it is wonderful. I now find it even more difficult to get up in the mornings. To get anything like a half decent mattress will cost upwards of £250.

    Thanks all

    I was planning in spending around 300€ anyway, as it’s very important to be able to sleep well.

    I’ll have a look to memory foam mattresses tomorrow, anything I should avoid? Any clever question I should ask?

    Mucho love juan

    Top-class mattresses cost around a grand!

    🙁

    Well I don’t have a Grand plus I have no idea where I will be in 12 month. So I guess the 300 maybe 400€ marks ones will have to do.

    Always get the best bed or shoes you can afford. You spend most of your life in either.

    Top class ones might, but perfectly servicable ones can be had for less.

    Buy Tempur. You will not be disappointed.

    I’ve had a 20cm mattress from them for a couple years now and am sleeping much better than ever.

    Cost £1024.69 with 2 Tempur Traditional Pillows.

    IMO, Buy a very cheap hard/ortho one. You won’t be disappointed.

    I wasted money being taken in by the “pocket springs” hype, and ended up giving it away on freecycle after 6 months after hardly sleeping on the stupid squashy thing.

    I’ve got to agree, I’ve been sleeping on one for about htree years now and it’s bliss. The only problem is when I go away and have to sleep on an ordinary bed it’s horrible!

    my mattress cost £120 and I’ve had 8 good years and 2 springs-in-back years out of it, so am looking for a new one as well.

    Am tempted to get another rock hard cheap one as all the expensive ones are way too soft for me, even the ‘firm’ ones.
