Hi Phoenix-

I am in the 95678 area and am in need of a memory foam type king bed. I could go up to about 2500 for the bed, but its about comfort and value over actual price for me. I purchased the HEALTHYFOUNDATIONS bed about 5 months ago and it is not going to work for my wife and I. I really wanted to like this bed but in the end, it is too firm for me as a side sleeper. I thought the bed was quality and not hot to sleep in which was a worry. I am 240 pounds.

In reading your previous posts, I can tell you really care about helping!

Thanks

Hi Beckat916,

I switched your post to a topic of its own so our conversation wouldn't get mixed up with another member's topic from another area.

I'm also sorry to hear that your purchase from Healthy Foundations didn't work out for you but it's good to see you had the foresight to purchase an online mattress where you had some good return options available if your choice didn't turn out as well as you hoped.

The first place I wold start your research is the mattress shopping tutorial here which has all the basic information, steps, and guidelines that you will need to make the best possible choices ... and know how and why to avoid the worst ones.

The tutorial also includes a link to a list of the better online memory foam options I'm aware of (in the optional online step) if you are still considering an online memory foam purchase.

More locally ... if you want to test a mattress in person before you buy it ... then the better options and possibilities I'm aware of in and around the Sacramento area (subject to following all the steps in the tutorial post) are listed in post #5 here .

I'm looking forward to finding out what you end up deciding this time around and of course any comments or questions you may have along the way.

So after many trips to stores and a few return trips, I decided on European Sleep Design. I was able to spend a few hours laying on mattresses and my wife and I were able to customize it for both of our needs. If you want the right mattress, you need to spend the time feeling what feels good to you. There is no real way to find what you are looking for by descriptions unless you just plain get lucky.

Thank you for your help. 3 weeks and it arrives (they make each one from scratch).

Hi Beckat916,

It sounds like you did some great testing and research ... and congratulations on your new mattress :)

I'm looking forward to your feedback once you've received it and have had the chance to sleep on it for a bit.
