Hi stbwolfe,

Thanks for the "next" update. It's amazing the difference a day ... or a night ... can make :)

I also added the pdf file you sent me about their memory foam to post #6 of the thread.

It has been a little while since my last update, but here are my feelings over the last three weeks:
I am really happy with my new mattress. I sleep like a baby on the foam and my girlfriend absolutely loves it as well. At the beginning, I thought that the mattress slept a little hot, but now I consider the temperature to be just about perfect all the time. The purecool material really does seem to keep the mattress temperature at "just right" all night.
I still am not convinced, however, that this is the mattress that we will stay with. I sometimes wake up with slightly sore hips or a small sore spot in the middle of my back, and I can't tell if it is from the mattress being too soft of firm. Sometimes I get the impression that it is too soft for me when I am on my back, because my hips sink in slightly lower than my shoulders. At other times I get the impression that it is too firm, because it seems like I can feel that base foam when I am lying on my side. This also may be me being too critical. There may just be no such thing as a "perfect fit" for someone of my size and build (6'4" 210 lbs, athletic) in combination with someone my girlfriend's size (5'2" 110 lbs, lazy :)) Luckily, BB offers the 120 day return/exchange policy that is especially good on the purecool line.

Overall, I am very happy with the mattress and I have recommended this company to many other people already. If anyone has any advice on whether I should consider a more firm or a thicker, more plush mattress I would greatly appreciate any input.

Hi stbwolfe,

Thanks for the feedback on your mattress ... I appreciate it :)

It sounds to me like the mattress is working well for you and you are "in the middle" of your two main sleeping positions (back and side) which is usually the indication of a good choice.

The most reliable way to know if a mattress is working well for you is any specific symptoms you are having. In general there are "alignment" symptoms (typically discomfort or pain in specific areas of the body) and "pressure relief" symptoms (typically numbness, tingling, or pain on specific pressure points). The rest are mostly preference issues or based on "feel" which is less important and is often part of adjusting to a new sleeping system. When you find yourself describing your experience with "it feels like" (with things such as how far some areas of your body are sinking in) then these are usually preference issues while if your descriptions are more in line with "I have" (discomfort or pain or sore spots etc) then these are actual "symptoms" that may need to be addressed. Sometimes different symptoms may not be connected to a mattress mattress and may have more to do with the events or changing circumstances of your day or week and how you feel in general.

A sore spot in your hips may be a pressure point from a mattress that is a little too firm (although for men pressure points are more typically in the shoulder area) or it could be from a mattress that is a little too soft where the hip joints are not in their neutral alignment over the course of the night (usually from side sleeping) which can lead to some tension and discomfort in the hips if you sleep in the position that causes this for too long. Pain in the midback can come from either a mattress that is too firm and puts direct pressure on the muscles or from a mattress that is a little bit too soft and your back is sinking in unevenly and the muscles are working to keep your spine in alignment instead of fully relaxing. Upper body pain can also come from a pillow issue (where a pillow is too thick when you sleep on your back and it pushes your head forward which can cause neck and midback issues. Post #2 here may also be helpful when you have a new memory foam mattress to help you identify other possible causes for any discomfort. There is also a list of forum posts that talk about the various symptoms that are most common with a new mattress purchase and some of the possible solutions in post #2 here .

Identifying the underlying cause of any symptoms on a mattress can take some detective work but the first step is always a more detailed conversation with the retailer or manufacturer you purchased it from. They know more about their mattresses than anyone and the better ones will be very helpful in making suggestions if you are experiencing any issues with your mattress.

Hey guys!
Thanks again Phoenix for all of the great information. After adjusting to the bed, I am very pleased with it. I no longer experience discomfort (most nights) and I have really adjusted to the feel of the mattress. The temperature of the mattress continues to impress me: I never feel too hot or too cold, even though my room gets either too hot or too cold frequently. I keep a variety of pillows at my disposal, and I switch them whenever I feel uncomfortable. This really seems to be the trick.

I would still highly recommend this bed to anyone considering it. It has a nice firmness for those of us who are back/side sleepers. Any harder and my hips would likely hurt in the morning, and any softer and my lower back would probably bother me. Sometime I think that I should have purchased a latex mattress because of the more supportive feel, but then I remember how the latex feel just bothered me. If anyone has any questions about my feelings on the Purecool line from BB or about the supreme line feel free to ask!

Hi stbwolfe,

I was wondering how u still feel about the PureCoolSupreme. I've pretty much narrowed my choice down to the Cool Series Supreme. I was originally thinking I would need a firm memory foam bed, until testing out some temur-pedics and liking the supreme and luxe models. I'm particularly interested in how you feel about the bed because I am 6'7 235lbs so I def need a supportive bed and from what u wrote your a comparable body type. I know the mattresses are different but are pretty close to compare. Thanks for any insight you can give!

Sf-
I apologize for my delay, I didn't see your question until now. I am still very pleased with my mattress. I also considered a firmer mattress, even a few weeks after i received my new one. For me, it came down to a compromise between back and side sleeping positions. If my mattress was any firmer, I would be uncomfortable on my side. Now that I have become adjusted to it, both positions are extremely comfortable for me. If you are a hot sleeper, I would highly recommend the purecool line. If my mattress was any warmer it would bother me. I wrestled with the price difference for a few weeks, and eventually justified it because of how much I value good sleep.
If you have yet to make a decision, I hope this helps. If you have made a decision, I hope you enjoy your new mattress. Either way I recommend a good platform bed with minimal slat spacing. It really makes a huge difference.
