How to fix or tolerate an uncomfortable mattress for two weeks?

I'm looking after a parent's dog, house, and home business for a little over two weeks. The bed I'm sleeping in is super squishy. I think the mattress is memory foam. It doesn't matter if I lie on my stomach, back, or side - my hips sink into the mattress and then my legs and feet go numb. Eventually my arms go numb as well. Is there a sleeping position I could try that might alleviate the circulation problems? [more inside]

Hunting for the Perfect Pillow

The past couple of weekends my husband and I have been bed shopping. While doing this I came across the perfect pillow - however the shop told me it isn't made anymore. I was wondering if there was stock left anywhere else in the world. [more inside]

Overheating in bed, steps to take - sleep filter

I haven't been sleeping well. Including all winter. I have a crappy polyester comforter and Target Jersey Cotten Sheets, and a $600 10 inch memory foam mattress from Amazon with two memory foam pillows. So - basically everything that would make me overheat. Would adding a Latex Topper to the mix fix a lot of problems? [more inside]

Help me get a good nights sleep.

I have an old but sound mattress and I'm thinking about getting a memory foam topper. Normally I'm good at making a choice, however I've read so many different things about memory foam toppers that I'm at a loss as to what to do. Please help me chose what to do. [more inside]

Best starter mattress?

Outfitting my new apartment and I'm in need of a queen-size mattress... price range $200-$600. I like soft beds but don't have a great back either, and generally I sleep well in hotel beds. Already have an Ikea bed and slightly flexible slatted base--can I put a memory foam mattress directly on top of this setup? Otherwise, what mattress should I acquire and where, which will arrive in under a week? Thanks in advance!

Bed movement is disrupting our sleep and making me cranky, what to do

My boyfriend's mattress is about 6 years old, and he's a tosser. When I sleep over and he tosses and turns it keeps me up, and it sucks. I'm not sure if it's the mattress or the boxspring - he thinks mattress. Let's say getting a new mattress is not in the immediate future - will a memory foam cover help us? Is there any thing else you can think of? I'm guessing not really, but sometimes there are innovative suggestions around here. [more inside]

Mattress Musings?

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? [more inside]

Can you help me buy a memory foam mattress topper

Are Tempurpedic foam mattresses worth buying?

I need a new mattress. While shopping around, I tried one of those TemPurpedic, Swedish foam mattersses. They are about 4x more than I would ever expect to pay for a bed, but i am tempted. Anyone have any experience/advice/tips on these? Worth it or not? Any cheaper alternatives?

Tell me about memory-foam mattresses.

Those memory-foam mattress things. Tempurpedic and the knock offs you can find in other shops. I've noticed some cost as low as $400, scroll down to the bottom (beware, it's an awful site) with the Tempurpedic running about $1800 for a fullsize. There are other knockoffs (one by Sealy i think) but I can't find a link. And what's with the latex beds? Consumers! REPORT! thanks. I have a friend whose life was changed by these things. I worry it's a fad, like the waterbed but I've heard good things. I have two questions. 1) go Tempurpedic or try something else? 2) for those with one, what is sex like on them?
