Hello All,

I've been researching mattresses for the past several wks and can't seem to make a confident decision. Some info about myself:

- We are about 5'6" 185lbs and 5'5" 150lbs
- Recent back pain due to sagging of current mattress
- While shopping, we think a medium firm mattress feels best
- Would prefer memory / gel / latex foam or hybrid
- Budget <$1100 excluding foundation

We have searched many online retailers and major in-store retailers. As of now, we are considering Costco mattresses simply because of their return policy and our lack of confidence. Has anyone owned or considered the Sleep Science Black Diamond? Here's a quick look at the layers of the mattress. Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! ;)

Mattress top layer: 1” of proprietary 5 lb black diamond bamboo charcoal visco memory foam
Second layer: 1” of proprietary 5 lb slumber tech visco memory foam
Third layer: 2” of medium latex
Bottom layer: 7” proprietary support tech base foam

More info on the mattress can be found here:

Hi DarkFiber1,

The first place I would start your mattress research is the tutorial post here which has all the basic information, steps, and guidelines that can help you make the best possible choices ... and know how to avoid the worst ones.

You can read more of my thoughts about the Sleep Science Black Diamond in post #2 here and the links it includes.
