We need a new mattress, as our old one is ancient and reduced to badly sagging springs and dust-mites. This is such a complicated and involved topic, and it's so under-served by reputable sites online, I'm having trouble figuring out the smart play. I am enormous, she is petite. I toss and turn vigorously, she sleeps like a log. I think anything above freezing is too hot, and she thinks anything below 85 is too cold. We really like the company of sleeping in the same bed. Help?

We need at least a king size, as she likes making comforter forts on her side in her sleep, and I wind up with sixteen inches of space on my side.
Is it possible, or even advisable to order online, like from Overstock? What's this memory foam thing, and how do I keep from baking on it? What's a pillowtop gonna do?
