I am considering sort of a do it yourself mattress. Either buying foam of varying densities or buying a solid inner spring mattress and using a good quality topper as a way to get good support for less money. I am wondering if anyone has experience with this approach and any suggestions about how to proceed?

Thanks,

Josh

Hi jgregory,

Many of the forum members here have done what you are considering ... some quite successfully and some not so much.

Before you consider designing and building your own mattress out of individual layers that you purchase separately I would read post #15 here and the other posts it links to so you have realistic expectations of the process and your odds of success and that a "spirit of adventure" and experimentation is more important to you than any cost saving you may realize (which may not turn out to be the case).
