Yep and that's why we went! Didn't meet Rick but worked Wayne. He was friendly, thoughtful and helpful. We told him our goals/wants. We knew we wanted innerspring and we told him we were flexible on budget. He steered us to two reasonably priced mattresses that were good, showed us how they were constructed. Then in talking a bit more, he realized we weren't opposed to spending more. So he took us up to a higher end mattress and it was perfect. But I respected he didn't start us at the most expensive on the floor! I sold mattresses for a couple years once upon a time in another life but it has all changed since then, so between the invaluable research and info here and the pleasant experience at Fox, I'm a very happy buyer! Easiest mattress shopping I've had to do! And I already shared the link to here with my friends on fb. I'll be sure to post updates once the bed is delivered and then a bit after as well! Thanks again, Phoenix! Without this site I would have never heard of fox mattress!

Hi Nikki,

I'm a very happy buyer! Easiest mattress shopping I've had to do!


An easy shopping experience is a "good thing" ... and a lot different from what most consumers experience in the market!


Thanks for the kind words as well and I'm glad that the site could help you. I'm looking forward to your feedback when you've had the chance to sleep on your new mattress for a bit as well.

Most important ... thanks for taking the time to share your comments and feedback about your experience at Fox Mattress ... and congratulations on your new mattress :)

Phoenix

PS: I switched your posts and my replies to a new topic so it will be easier to find for others that are considering Fox Mattress.

Thanks Phoenix!

Been busy but since it's been almost a month wanted to be sure to share.....LOVE our new bed.

When you start waking up thinking damn getting older sucks....it's time for a new mattress. So much nicer to get a good nights sleep and not wake up with a sore back.

Fox delivered as scheduled, easy polite good to go! First couple nights sleep definite adjustment but for the better. It's great. No complaints only positives. You really can tell the difference in quality in the support, ticking, etc.

The only 'negative' was I didn't think it was that much thicker than our old set so it's rather tall now. A good reminder to always measure. But since we are 6' and 6'6" we actually like it! But for those not as tall it could be a challenge.

Hi Nikki,

Thanks again for taking the time to share your feedback about your mattress and Fox Mattress ... I appreciate it.

LOVE our new bed


Since it's a month after your purchase you would be past the initial adjustment and break in period it would be reasonable to expect that you will be loving it for many years to come ... and that's also a "good thing" :)

I think you did well.

It's that time. Tired of waking up to sore shoulders and so forth so it's time to ditch the 11 year-old Simmons for a real bed. I like what I've read about Fox Mattress and today we will make the 2 hour trek to the other coast for the Fox Mattress Experience :silly: The idea of bypassing the S's and going local greatly appeals to me.

Usually I research stuff to death when I buy appliances or a car. Reading all the great info on this sight I must say I am a bit overwhelmed. The one place we did check out was The Sleep Center in Ocala the other day. Was quite impressed by how instantly good it felt lying on a PLB bed. Latex might be in our future. We'll see...

Thanks for this site, Phoenix!

I think I saw in the guidelines somewhere that it's not advisable to buy the same day you go shopping. Broke that rule right off the bat. Shopping makes me tired. Sleeping on a saggy old mattress makes me tired and achy, so I wanted to be done with it.

When we got to Fox the salesman started us out with the lower end showing us the different density foams and different springs systems, then worked us up to the top of the line- the Chiropractor's Dream, with the soy-based foam. We were going to go with that one, until I made the mistake of lying on the Custom Deluxe- latex hybrid. Latex is interesting and we did try the solid latex mattresses, but they transmit every single movement not only from the other side of the bed, but anyone walking in the vicinity.

So we ended up with the 2-sided Custom Deluxe (latex hybrid) which is the same as the Chiropractor's Dream except for the Talalay latex instead of foam. We tried the kind with the pocket coils. Not happening for us. At this point in our lives (we're both 50+) we need more support. I really like the fact that they specialize in 2-sided or flip mattresses.

Take delivery Thursday. I can't WAIT!

Will post again with thoughts after sleeping on it B)

Hi Madrigal,

It sounds to me like you made a great choice and with a manufacturer like Fox Mattress making the purchase on the same day as you are testing would be a lot less risky.

Congratulations on your new mattress :)

I'm looking forward to an update and your feedback once you've received it!
