Dotsmom and I are finally going to bite the bullet and replace our old-n-busted mattress. However, I'm not looking for recommendations. I'm asking how you go about determining which mattress is "the one"?
Unless there are some highly obvious flaws (hard as a brick, so soft you roll off the edge, etc.) every mattress we lay down on feels great. Of course, that's because it feels great simply to lay down. And, the "ahhhh" effect gets even more pronounced after an afternoon of hopping from store-to-store. It all gets very confusing and frustrating.
So, how do you determine the right mattress? What are your testing tricks?
